Review for Dr. Lema

Dr. Lema is always calm, friendly and makes me feel comfortable. Even during a scary diagnosis, she was reassuring and I trusted her completely. She always takes the time to answer questions and never seems rushed.

Review for Dr. Lema

Dr Lema has always taken all the time I needed to answer every question I have had. She never rushes an exam. She personalizes her interactions and she remembers issues from the past exams and addresses these clearly. I feel confident that she is interested in her patient's well being.

Review for Dr. Lema

I have been a patient of Dr. Hicks For almost 20 years. He is an excellent doctor - thorough, thoughtful and kind. I credit him with having saved my life some years ago, although he is to modest to agree. He’s the best and we are fortunate to have him in WNY.

Review for Dr. Hicks

I highly recommend Dr. Akers. She is kind, caring and does not rush your visit. She always answers all my questions even the "silly" ones. She also went out of her way to look up some information for me for another specialist.

Review for Dr. Hicks

Dr Akers is so friendly, listens to and answers all concerns and questions. Also she has an excellent staff, and her 3rd yr resident was wonderful. She will make an excellent doctor in the community she chooses to practice in. Absolutely no negative comments....she is wonderful.

Review for Dr. Fenstermaker

Dr Zsiros is competent and cares about her patients. I have no doubt about her integrity and brilliance. Read her bio and speak to her once. She tells you exactly what's going on and doesn't add emotion but also makes sure you understand.

Dr. Ziros is the best!! You can tell that she really cares about you. She and everybody she works with were always positive, friendly and compassionate. I feel like I’m in the best possible hands as I fight 2 different cancers. So thankful for RPCI.

I have seen Dr. Kuechle twice since I broke my tibia on December 5. He has been clear in his instructions and in my prognosis. The staff at his office has been helpful in providing referrals for Visiting Nurses and a parking permit. He is very reassuring.

As I live in Rochester N.Y.,an hour plus from RPCI, indicates my reliance on RPCI to care for my past cancer problem,and is my reason for continuing to make the occasional trip to RPCI and to see Dr Metchler.

Review for Dr. Bax

I see that Dr. Hicks welcomes some reviewers to contact his office to discuss the comments made. I really doubt that he would come to the phone and actually listen to anyone and he would probably suggest you see someone else for treatment.

Dr. Zsiros is among the best doctors you’ll ever come across. She genuinely cares. You know you’re in very good hands if you’re her patient!

Review for Dr. Zsiros

I recently saw Dr. Bax for an excision of a basal cell skin cancer. The procedure was quick and painless. The incision is healing well and is unlikely to leave a noticeable scar. My experience with the entire staff in the dermatology clinic at RPCCI has been nothing but positive.

Review for Dr. Fenstermaker

Dr. Hicks was my primary surgeon when I was dx with throat cancer. I am an ER RN, I have worked with many doctors over the years. Never have I experienced an MD with such disregard for his post-op patients. There is a reason why his applications to other medical centers were denied.

George in Syracuse, NY - Dec 23 2018

I was very comfortable with the care I received from Dr. Zsiros during a pretty scary time. She was able to take care of my issue quickly and get me on my feet again. Super grateful for her kindness and expertise!

The Doctor was good but the nurse practitioner was not very professional and did the fastest exam of my son I’ve ever seen, if she did one at all. From now on we will only see the Dr. It takes awhile to get to see him but at least he made us feel like you got some quality doctor time.
