Dr. Pearl is one of the best doctors I know. Dr. Pearl has treated me for lumbar spine, hip bursitis and tailbone pain from a fall on my lawn, for which I needed disc surgery. She is informative, listens extremely well and very friendly. Dr. Pearl is a real gem, a rare find in a doctor!

Dr. Sadowski is very professional and a great listener when describing what type of service you want done. Her RN is also great and makes you feel very welcome and supportive when making your final decision.

Dr Amy Fogelman has no bedside manners. She is quite the eye roller. She does not take the time to educate and involve the patients in their own care. She is disrespectful and dismissive. I’m hoping to find a better physician far far away from this

One of the kindest, most personable doctors I’ve encountered. She is very interested in the nature of the person behind the condition. Her humanity shines bright. From a scaredy cat RN who thought he had a melanoma.

Dr. Brignall is elitist, detached from his patients, and repeatedly wrecked havoc with my diabetes care. The staff is rude and often attempts to blame patients for not calling for their own referrals and Prior Authorizations, when the patient has no authority to make such calls.

If you want to look like yourself minus the wrinkles and sagging skin, you need to schedule an appointment with Dr. Sadowkski. I can't believe how great I look and everyone thinks I am rested from being on vacation. No one suspects I had a facelift, and I'm not telling!

I was having a reaction to testing. This doctor said “No itching, no allergy.” I was having a reaction. Numb lips, lightheaded, ringing in ears, disoriented. She kept saying “No itching, no allergy.” I was kicked out of her office so fast. I never should’ve been able to leave and drive
