After 13 years with T1D, Dr. Walewicz is by far the best doctor I have had. She is the perfect mix between a little tough love and understanding that I need in an Endo. I'd recommend her highly.

Review for Dr. Walewicz

I’ve known others who have gone to Sabates Eye Center in Overland Park and the wait use to be ridiculous. Easily 2 or more hours. Now however, the wait is reasonable 5-10 min. Great friendly, caring, knowledgable staff. Dr Pikey is no nonsense, get you in and out.

Best doctor I have ever had the pleasure of working with— unfortunately she left the practice and we lost contact, despite repeated attempts to contact her, I’ve yet to be able to reach her. We had such a close bond, it’s truly heartbreaking.

Review for Dr. Ausmus

Always timely! Takes the time to understand the person and this helps determine the root cause of any medical concern. Dr. Orlando has been my physcian for 20 years -- And I would not consider another option... even though I drive 40 mintues and pass many hospitals and physcians on the way!

May 27 2020

Review for Dr. Orlando

Not good. My son was mis-diagnosed & he never even did any confirming test on him. He did not have cervical dystonia as he said after only 5 minutes with him in a room. No Dr. should diagnose without doing test first.

JJ May 27 2020

Review for Dr. Patel

He has performed two hip surgeries for me. Both were very successful. In his craft he applies a combination of science and carpentry to produce the best results. He has been the go to surgeon for my entire family. All have had excellent results.
