Review for Dr. Orandi

My elderly mother had the same complaints as other patients. Dr. Gupta doesn't listen, respect patient's input, refuses requested referrals, etc. My mother switched primaries after months if not years of inaction by Dr. Gupta. Beware. Hopefully there are better, more responsive primaries in FF.

Dr. Orandi provided a very professional and well-planned treatment protocol for my son who was in town from Texas. He was also able to schedule an appointment on relatively short notice which was very much appreciated. We will return with other family members as our needs arise.

Review for Dr. Thom

I have been going to him for 20 years. He is great and a pleasure to deal with. The man has not changed in over 20 years. He looks the same as the first day I saw him? He is 66 years old and looks like he's in his 40s. Whatever he advises for me, I am certainly going to listen and do.

Review for Dr. Johnson

Excellent experience with him. Had surgery done about 5 years ago, and everything is fine. I even had a blood clot after the surgery, and he diagnosed it quickly and got me through it. Great to communicate with, good staff around him.

Review for Dr. Glynn

Dr. Norgard is terrific He was able to diagnose a condition that was missed by GP's, gynecologists, and a urologist. I suffered nearly a year with missed diagnoses. He knew what it was immediately. He is also a very sweet guy. I recommend him highly.

Review for Dr. Norgard

Dr. Gupta is very stubborn & doesn’t always have a good bedside manner, nor does she always take her colleagues advice regarding a patient. I would NEVER recommend her.

She was not very good at diagnosing or treating my son. He was getting worse and worse under her care. We finally went to a different doctor.

Review for Dr. Meland

He was rude. Did not explain what he was going to do before he did it. Barely talked at all. I Felt I was almost being attacked. If he had been providing care for a child of mine I would have stopped the exam and left.

I came to her with a thyroid problem. She refused to examine it. I went to her 4 times and my thyroid had started a new growth, yet she still refused. Her nurse was just really crabby.

Dr. Lembcke takes time to focus only on you and will discuss any concerns. He always has a smile and handshake whether in the office or on the street. I trust his knowledge and ability to answer questions. He also will offer a referral to specialists if needed.
