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

He is the most compassionate doctor. He restored my mom from chronic pain and minor mobility to walking up to two miles a day. My mom was elderly, and I appreciated that he spoke to her, and not ask me the questions.

I have had only good experiences in my 20+ years as a patient of Dr. Goldberg’s. She is very attentive and caring. However, she is very busy and appointments for check-ups are scheduled far in advance, at least a year.

Apr 20 2020

Review for Dr. Goldberg

Very negative experience with Dr Gleysteen. She was very abrupt and misdiagnosed me. I now have a wonderful, and appropriate md. Look for a caring and competent dr. Dr Glyeesteen is neither of those!

I'm a disabled person. I went to see Dr. Viloria. She laughed at my perineum and the heat rash that developed that day. She even elbowed the intern to chime in on the ridicule. Dr. Rebekah Viloria is a horrendous display of medicine and gynecological care, especially with the disabled.

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.
