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.

Dr. Goren was very professional and had a superb bedside manner. He answered all of my questions and made me feel very confident with his care.

Yesterday was my first appt with Dr. Geise. Excellent. Very thorough and explained everything. He was not in a hurry like other doctors are. He took his time which made me feel he really cared. Will be staying with him and Banner. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Steve Jun 06 2020

Review for Dr. Geise

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.

Review for Dr. Ronco

Dr Stish is probably a good Doctor, unfortunately not for me. He has the the most unkind, rude and careless people working in his office. He doesn't worth the trouble to deal with all of them.

Review for Dr. Lietman

Good Doctor, not very friendly, however, the women working at his office are nasty. We cannot get nothing from them, only bad attitude. People can stay standing, waiting, they don't even care about it. Or yet, they see "through you", like we are invisible. I don't recommend.

Dr. Andreychik was awesome. He is very caring, sympathetic, and has the best bed side manner of any Dr. I have ever met. He is a professional, yet has the personality for understanding, listening and to comfort the patient. He helped me so much. I highly recommend him. 5 stars for this Dr.

There is no better doctor on the planet, or on neighboring planets for that matter, than Dr. Mullarkey. She cares, is hugely competent, and investigates health issues and medical mysteries. The primary reason one cannot get in to see her is everyone wants to see her. She is a gift.

I took my teenage daughter to Dr. Clark and will not go back to see her. She did not listen at all. She dismissed everything I had to say. She talks over you. I felt like she was talking down to me the whole time as if I did not know my own daughter's symptoms. No sympathy at all from her.
