Review for Dr. Janice Dickerson, MD

It was AWFUL!!! Total lack of communication.. no professional introduction to new patient, no specific diagnosis, no specific prognosis, no specific treatment plan... as a former 30 yr Hospital Executive this was a poor display of patient care!!

Review for Dr. Eric Lescault, DO

Horrible experience. He should have consequences for the negligence he showed. He left my loved one paralyzed and unable to perform daily activities. He has not accepted responsibility for this and has done this to others. Our family will never be the same. Do not trust in him.

Review for Dr. Thomas Kelso Jr, MD

Great experience with Dr. Bebb and his staff. He took a lot of time explaining the procedure, and answering my questions. I never felt rushed. They were readily available when I felt I needed to come back for a check up before my actual scheduled check up. All in all very satisfied.

Dr. Bocook is a referral service. She was unable to diagnose several very simple but serious conditions with both my husband and I, leading to pain,difficulty and trouble with time. I do not recommend her for anything.
