Dr. Siddiqui is very personable, caring, and knowledgeable. It took months to get an appointment. It was worth the wait. I now understand why it took so long to get in. He is that good.

Dr. Maldonado is my elderly mother's new physician. We find him to be very conscientious & caring. Our family appreciates him more than we can express. He is a warm person & she developed a trust level with him at her first office visit. His patients are fortunate to have him.

Dr Elliott has been instrumental on my care. I have had the pleasure of having her as my doctor for the last 4 1/2 years. I am a stage 4 colon cancer patient/survivor and I feel without her expert care. I would not be able to make that statement! She has been a God send to me and my family!!!!

Apr 16 2019

Review for Dr. Kathleen Elliott, MD

Horrible both times seeing him! He makes light of his patients and him and his nurse giggle at people as if their feelings don't matter. He rushes the appointments and mumbles to himself. He needs to slow his speech down as well.

Dr. Wolfe removed a large plexiform neurofibroma off my spine in 2013 and did a phenomenal job. I healed wonderfully. She is a wonderful surgeon and really knows her stuff. I’d definitely recommend her to anyone needing a neurosurgeon.

Review for Dr. Stacey Wolfe, MD

I only saw Dr. Bell a few times because he was not my primary care doctor, but I can tell you that he is one of the best pediatricians in this area, I would highly recommend him to anyone! He is very caring and compassionate and takes his time with patients. Top notch doctor.

Dr Siddiqui is a very thorough and very caring doctor. He is very knowledgeable, and he takes all of your concerns seriously and listens carefully. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a neurologist, especially one who specializes in movement disorders.

He was caring above and beyond and did kyphoplasty on me when I had my first fractured a lumbar vertebrae this past year. He answered all my emails from Baptist. He’s a 5+!

Dr. Stevens is so relaxed and knowledgeable. He took time to explain my situation and advised against surgery. I am grateful for his wisdom and have never regretted that decision.

Review for Dr. William Crone, MD

If you need care for burns there is none better than the group at Baptist Hospital. Chris did grafts for me toes-to-ankle and beyond. I would request he do my surgery if I ever had the need again. Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center is better for him being there.

Don't except Medicaid,but won't let you pay with cash for services.That is stupid!! He has good reviews mostly and may be a good dentist otherwise,but this makes no sense.And this is caring? Not in my book.
