Sep 20 2019

Review for Dr. Marzena Bieniek, MD

Dr. Brouse no longer considers anyone to be his patient if you have not seen him within a year. Staff relays this message if you want to see him on an urgent basis and directs you to walk-in facilities or the doctor of your choice.

Review for Dr. Marzena Bieniek, MD

Dr. Hawkins was very knowledgeable about shoulders. After reviewing my x-rays, he recommended a shoulder replacement. Perhaps a bit too quickly. I would have liked a written summary of his diagnosis.

Sep 18 2019

Review for Dr. Christopher Hawkins, MD

Incorrect patient records, dirty office, and staff seems to have an unprofessional image. They are really only interested in the financials matters of this poorly run office. Do yourself a favor & locate a urologist that isn't stuck in the 80's & hires a component staff.
