I've found Dr. Burns to be a compassionate, patient and well informed gastroenterologist. On two separate occasions, I've been referred to him by two separate physicians. He has that rare combination of knowledge and compassion. I wish him well in his retirement. He has earned it.

Lucinda Coup Aug 06 2020

Review for Dr. Burns

Dr Long's office needs to get into the 21st century. They can't take HSA cards to make payments and can only accept checks or cash. I would think a medical provider inside the hospital would be able to take payments electronically.

jmiller Jul 07 2020

Review for Dr. Long

The very best in the state of PA. Saved my sight. Would not trust anyone else with my vision. Great Surgeon and took less than an hour from the time I check in until the time my wife and I walked out. Love the staff in Allenwood. They make this easy.

Review for Dr. Martin

I’m new to the area and I left a doctor I loved and trusted. Doctor Brown stepped into his shoes and I never blinked. You won’t be disappointed if you want to try him out. He is kind, respectful, and spends time with you no matter what the issue is. His staff is wonderful and kind.

KAREN LOCKE Jun 05 2020

Review for Dr. Brown

Lacks loyalty and trust. Great disappointment. I wouldn’t trust him with my long-term care. He doesn’t deliver the service.

Jun 05 2020

Review for Dr. Ronco

Doesn’t follow through on claims. Purports patient support and readily throws patients under the bus. Real lack of patient understanding. Not mentally or emotionally stable. I would not trust him with my care again.

Review for Dr. Miller

Brilliant and caring doctor. Cannot recommend enough. We are extremely lucky to have him in our area as he could definitely go anywhere with his knowledge and skill level.

Dr. Chlebowski is top notch. I received excellent care in a clean facility. The nurse and receptionist were very caring. The dr. Removed my very ingrown nail without any pain. I highly recommend this dr. I am so thankful to have found him.

Linda Mar 09 2020

Review for Dr. Dominick

Never! This woman lacks compassion and empathy. If I could give her a zero rating I would. She lacks the ability to communicate, unable to even make simple eye contact.

Review for Dr. Corona

I've been a patient of Dr. Yao's for over 5 years. She always takes time to listen to my concerns and has a wonderful bedside manner. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Unfortunately, because she is so good, it's sometimes hard to make an urgent appointment.

Do not visit this doctor if you think you have non-allergic rhinitis. He is not equipped to deal with this. More than 2 months later and I am referred back to my PCP, as apparently rhinitis and turbinate atrophy are not sinus issues.
