He is a wonderful doctor. He takes as much time as you need and never rushes you out. He is genuinely a wonderful human. I’m 51 and he is the best doctor I have ever had!

Mom is 97 in a nursing home, Dr. Dewar took over her treatment and literally pulled her from the brink of death and restored her quality of life. He took time to listen to family concerns and swiftly acted. Highly recommended!

Dr Kolessar is one in a million. His concern,care,and expertise is above everyone. His staff is kind,caring and understanding. If you think I wasn't scared to get both knees replaced I would be lying. He told me the truth,and I was walking on my own at less than two weeks.

John j Barilla May 27 2020

Review for Dr. Kolessar

One star is too much to rate this woman. Doesn't listen, doesn't understand, and the staff is terrible! The final straw was when she was looking into my ear with the scope and said good, but it wasn't even in my ear... it was on the lobe?? Hideous!

He dismissed my elderly mother’s complaints. She & I both felt that he really didn’t care about elderly patients. Fath has terrible bedside manner. He was also my doctor at one time but I found a much more compassionate doctor. I would not recommend this man.

If I could give this doctor a zero I would. He is arrogant and not at all helpful or caring. He seems to act as if everyone has dementia or alzheimer's. I would never recommend anyone to him.

Review for Dr. Peters

She was extremely rude to my 93 year old mother and my 48 year old daughter who was trying to talk to Dr Mera about my hospitalized mother’s condition. Dr Mera turned her back and said “I’m done with you.” while walking out. There were many other incidents during that hospital stay.

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.

Very likely to recommend him. The surgery was a success with no problems after, and he was very personable, a not so common trait in surgeons.

Review for Dr. Bowen

Dr. Rittenberg has too many patients and not enough time for them. It's nothing to sit in several waiting area for 2 hours only to see the doctor for less than 5 minutes. His advise is just as quick. I do not feel he has his patients best interest at heart. I switched urologists!!
