Had my 2nd double scope procedure 2/14/2020 and once again Dr. Krogel was the best! He is friendly, caring, professional, knowledgeable, easy to talk too and listens to his patients. I just hope he is still around this area when I have to have these procedures repeated again in 5 years!!!

Brent Jordan Jan 06 2020

Review for Dr. Krupnick Jr

Unprofessional - overprescribes controlled substances, does not provide comprehensive advice, recommendations, or support to patients. Office staff is rude and does not follow up with pharmacy to discontinue medications. Also, shames patient in their healthcare struggles.

Review for Dr. Scoggins

Bedside manner is off a bit. Telling my 11 year old about how he could die if he didn’t take his meds crossed the line for me. I had a bit of damage control to do after that appointment.

Review for Dr. Stutesman

Burned two holes in my side during Lithotripsy leaving 2 scars. No bedside manner. Did not speak to me or my family after procedure. Would not recommend. Procedure should have taken 45 mins to 1 hr. I was gone about 4 hrs. and my family was given no word about what was happening.

Review for Dr. Rose

This Doctor is thorough. He treats you with respect and cares about your health. Never acts like he is in a hurry to get you in and out. Not just a number he knows my name.

Review for Dr. Rose

Dr. Groh was fantastic for my surgery (five by-passes and mitral valve repair). Not only is he, in my opinion, an excellent heart surgeon, but a gentleman as well. From the day I first met him until discharged from his care I felt that I was in the hands of a very capable physician.

Review for Dr. Johnson

First visit to Dr. Mishneh with my elderly Mother was an extremely positive experience. We were both impressed and grateful for his competence and compassion. He was in no way dismissive of Mother’s condition which has, unfortunately, been the case with so many other physicians.

Joyce Shuffler in Morganton, NC - Jul 10 2018

Review for Dr. Mishoe

Pat has been our Doctor 18 years and is the best physician that I have seen in my life. I recommend him to anyone who is looking for a great doctor that will explain to you your medical condition in plain easy to understand terms .

Dr. John Betancourt is a wonderful doctor! He always listens and gets to know and understand his patients. He is very thorough in examining and testing to insure appropriate diagnosis prior to treatment. His staff respect him and treat his patients with courtesy and concern.

Best bed side manner and such a great personality!!! He was willing to take the time to talk with us and explain everything. He didn't rush us out to go to his next Patient. Means a lot to have that time!

Review for Dr. Bell

The staff Kills it. My husband went in for a pr-op appointment this morning, and the staff was rude to the point that I had to get the Practice manager involved. Dr. Brazinski may be the best orthopedic surgeon in the area, but we will find another Ortho to perform the surgery.
