I was very pleased with Dr. Buerk. I had a total knee replacement and did extremely well. I can do anything since having the procedure. I barely have a scar. I would highly recommend him. Very pleased with my care.

Review for Dr. Buerk

I was appalled by Dr. Buerk's lack of care and sound medical experience. I would not advise seeing him for anything that you expect to get a good doctor's take on. It is not worth his rude remarks.

Dr. Ganti was unbelievably rude during my diagnosis and would not give a hard copy stating the results.

I was examined by 7 different drs in a six month period before going to see Dr. Levin. The first 7 had no clue why I could hardley walk. Dr. Levin diagnosed the issue in 15 minutes. Within a months time I was able to walk without a cane . Great Doctor..

I have had issues with my back for many years and got the privilege of getting to see Dr. Levin when he was at the Towanda Memorial Hospital. He fixed the issues with my back and I was perfect for many years. He is the greatest doctor I have ever seen in my 45 years of life.
