Dr. P has been my doctor for 24 years. Always caring and concerned. He can look at me and tell if I’m sick. Love him.

Review for Dr. Pellegrino

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. Hartzell

He is truly one of the best diagnostic doctors I’ve ever met. He knows family and I’s information like the back of his hand. Also, he’s such a nice guy and listens to all the patients problems!

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.

Horrible Jan 03 2020

Review for Dr. Miekley

Dr. Rajjoub is a good listener and is courteous and respectful to patients. He always says "I'll do my best" and his best is the best. He is careful in his surgery and I had no problems in my recovery.

Review for Dr. Rajjoub

Dr. Burzynski removed my daughter's wisdom teeth and punctured her sinus. Whenever she drank liquids, they would come out her nose for over a week. Luckily, it eventually healed on its own as they said it may, but it was not a good experience for her.

Review for Dr. Burzynski

Dr. Pellegrino is a very intelligent healthcare provider. He takes his time with patients and listens to them. He’s a really down-to-earth guy as well, which makes it easy for me to talk to him. Overall, I couldn’t ask for a better doctor.

I am very happy to call him my go to doctor. I have had two surgeries within a few months. One shoulder surgery and one hand surgery. He is the best. Not to many doctors call you personally after surgery to see how your doing. Definitely recommend him.

Dr Reilly is among the best doctors in the county when it comes to spending time with patients and answering questions. This might explain the fact that he often runs behind schedule with appointments but that is a price I will happily pay.

Absolutely terrible experience. I sat in the waiting room for 2 hours and have now been sitting in the exam room going on 45 minutes now. They obviously take on more clients than ther're staff can handle. I would steer clear of this place if you do not want to wait 3 hours to be seen.

Lock Haven - Jun 01 2017

Had Raindrop surgery, was totally straightforward with procedure and expectations of the outcome. Only 5 days since surgery and I have not had to reach for my "cheaters" once since Friday. Outcome for me thus far is actually better than was described to me prior to surgery.

I found him to be condescending and dismissive. Was more interested in comparing my injury to his own experience and that of another patient than really hearing what I was telling him. As soon as he found out I was hurt at work, his whole attitude shifted into rude and arrogant.
