No explanation of results. I explained that I was not keen on wearing a CPAP mask and ask if other options were available and he said yes but insisted that I use a CPAP.

I would reccomend Dr. Perez to everyone. He takes his time with each person and gets a clear picture of your health issues then gives u the best suggestion to help you and your unique situation.

Mar 29 2019

Review for Dr. Gilbert Perez, MD

Dr. Perez is the most caring doctor I’ve ever encountered. He is concerned about the patient’s physical, mental and spiritual health. This is what sets his care apart from other physicians in the area.

Review for Dr. Mary Beth Krafty, MD

She’s the best doctor I have ever been with. When I had a problem and had tests done, she even called me at home as soon as she got the results. Got a lot of my family going to her and they love her as much as I do.

in Mt Pleasant , PA - Sep 10 2018

Review for Dr. Rajni Madaan, MD

In my opinion based on my experience, Dr. Jain seemed to bully me into continuing a therapy that was clearly aggravating my other conditions even though other therapies were discussed and available.

I had my daughter in the Er Dr. Bittner was so wonderful to her and also helped give her medicine. I loved how thoroughly she checked out my daughter when another hospital missed diagnosed her ! I would definitely recommend Dr. Bittner. Thank you so much for everything Dr.

Review for Dr. Liana Bittner, MD

Dr. Perez is a genuinely kind-hearted person who seems to take great care in his decision making as a doctor. He is extraordinarily well informed on diverse illnesses. He has helped me to learn and understand my own health issues and always respects my right to have a say so in my treatment plan.

in Leckrone - Mar 23 2018

Review for Dr. Gilbert Perez, MD

Dr. Varma spends all of our appointment time reviewing labwork. She repeats the same information at every session. She has ridiculously long wait times that can be hours after your appointment. Her office staff are standoffish and unfriendly.

She is the most caring physician I have known. She takes her time with each patient in order to get to the root of the problem through conversation and an examination. I would recommend her in a heartbeat. I wish more physicians were like Dr. Krafty.

Dr. Williams has been my PCP for at least 20 years. I am 58 years old, run marathons, and take no prescription meds. That should say something. He, and his staff, have always been there for me. Thank you!

Dr. Madaan is amazing. She cares, she is attentive, and she is extremely nice. I have been to 5 doctors in 10 years and none of them showed the kind of compassion and medical expertise that Dr. Madaan has. I am so happy I found her!
