Review for Dr. Falvello

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.

Heather Simmons Jun 03 2020

Review for Dr. Stish

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.

Paula May 22 2020

Wait time was very short. Dr. Sibley is a friendly, caring, polite and good doctor. I had pain in my right hand, several times, and he took care of the pain, with injections. He explained to me what he was doing at the time of the injections. Sharp dresser, very good doctor.

Shirley L. Readinger-Ziegler Nov 21 2019

Review for Dr. Sibley

He treated my mother like she was a "drug seeker". My mother is a end stage cancer patient at LVHH currently and was in an extreme amount of pain. She was also NPO and did not order IV fluids for my mother for three days. This doctor SHOULD NOT be treating patients. RUN if you have him.

Review for Dr. Patel

Wait time was short and Dr. Washinsky was very knowledgeable and very funny. He has a great time making me laugh. Great bedside manner. I put 4 stars instead of 5 because he is very expensive even with great insurance.

My wife had multiple opinions and he gave her a clear diagnosis for her problem. He spoke to us like a friend and not a "know-it-all" like some others. He performed a complex nerve transfer surgery. She is getting her strength back! Great pain plan as well. She didn't take any narcotics.

Review for Dr. Sibley

There's a reason he has great reviews. All my questions were answered, I didn't feel rushed, and my pain is now gone. His pain protocol is great. Other docs just give out narcotics like candy. He's also a great teacher to his residents. Some patients may not like the extra attention, but I did.

Tim Smith in Bethlehem, PA - Jun 05 2019

I highly recommend Dr. Sibley for carpal tunnel surgery. He is knowledgeable and personable. I had symptoms for several years. The wrist splint didn't relieve the numbness and tingling in my hand. Recovery time was minimal and I regained feeling in my hand.
