I see Kim in between seeing my doctor and she is a plethora of knowledge. I feel I am in good hands with her. It doesn't feel like I am going to the doctors office when I see her and the entire staff is so sweet.

Review for Dr. Schwarz

Excellent! Provided compassion towards a very difficult patient. He listened, spent a great deal of time and actually called back when I needed to ask a question. There should be more physicians like Dr. Basch.

Review for Dr. Basch

I visited with Dr. Shamim for tendonitis. She explained all my options and gave me her medical opinion on which procedure would be best for me. Within 10 weeks of my first visit, I am 95% better. She was always on time and took the time to answer all my questions. I would highly recommend her.

I would not recommend Dr. Hall. He has horrible bedside manners, makes you feel rushed, and tries to get you to buy vitamins that he gets a kickback on - which I don't think is very ethical. I found another urologist and will not be going back to Dr. Hall.

Dr. Koss performed rotator cuff surgery on my right shoulder. He did an amazing job. Always very professional and never rushed me when I asked questions. I had some concerns after the surgery but he assured me that my movement would improve and it certainly has! I highly recommend him.

Review for Dr. Koss

Great shoulder specialist - thorough, understanding, and very determined to get the best result. Daughter ended up not needing surgery but the PT - Doctor connection was the right synergy to make sure she was ready for the new season. Highly recommended.

The worst Dr I have ever seen!!!!!! I am seeking an attorney to help me with what he has done to me. The time with him was the worst pin I ever suffered. He is uncaring, untrustworthy and only cares about money - not his patients. Do yourself a favor and avoid him!
