Please see anyone else his reputation is well known for rounding at 5am and then you never see him again. Makes terrible judgment calls and changes meds without talking to the patient their family or the care team. Mention his name at any nepa hospital and all you get is a pitying look.

Review for Dr. Vale

While the provider himself appears to be knowledgeable, his office staff is all around incompetent and can't deliver on the simplest of commitments. I've had to call then over 7 times since the beginning of the new year, and my call has only been returned twice, neither of which resolved my issue.

I have been a patient, of Dr. Kevin Colleran, since my first procedure in 2007. I have had a total of six procedures, joint replacements and repairs, under Dr. Colleran's skilled hands. He and his team represent excellence, beyond reproach.
