I have been seeing Dr Giesswein for several years now and his office has always been great. Very nice and pleasant. He keeps me clear of any possible spots that could turn into melanomas.

The worse visit I’ve ever had with a Dr. I felt like she was degrading, and condescending with me. Acted like I was stupid. I felt she was judging my options I wanted for myself. I will NEVER see her again.

Review for Dr. Miekley

This doctor did not care about patient privacy which was evidenced in his loud tone and demeaning manner towards myself, his patient. He then stated that the issue which brought me to the hospital was non-existent and that he recommended I see a psychiatrist for any further treatment.

The exam rooms are left open. I heard Dr. Hartzell in the hallway make fun of a patient for going to the ER without a good reason. I have no doubt that Dr. Hartzell is competent, but I found this unprofessional. I shouldn't have heard this in the first place.

Review for Dr. Myers

My experience was very similar to Linda's review that she left in 2015.... 4 years later it is probably worse. Past competency may have been the case, but now at age 81 it is a potentially dangerous practice by 2019. Lack of concern, disorganized and temperamental.
