I was playing volleyball and I fell and sprained my foot. Dr. Chaudhry saw me as an emergency on Sunday. She opened up her office and was so caring and took such good care of me. She had me in an ankle brace for 8 weeks and I am back to volleyball again.

Dr. Parkman was attentive and thorough in his exam and history. He recommended some medicine and said it might be expensive and to call him if it was not covered by insurance. It was not covered, $1200. Dr Packman never returned my e-mails or calls. I would not recommend him.

Review for Dr. Rettig

I had a medical issue that had been misdiagnosed by several doctors. Dr. Pazionis was certain it was something else, and was relentless in getting to the bottom of it. She was right! Dr. Pazionis exemplifies the importance of really listening to the patient. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

Probably the worst doctor I’ve ever seen. Has no compassion or empathy. Will forget your name in a condescending manner and then patronize you out of the office. Go visit him if you want to be talked down to.
