Provider Reviews

Went to Wellspan Urgent Care yesterday and was seen by Dr. DeCort. He was very courteous to me, did a thorough exam, and helped some my problem. Couldn’t recommend him more highly.

Vince McCormack Nov 19 2022

Review for Dr. Decort

I received better care from my first grade school nurse. The staff are as if this is their first day in the office and seem oblivious to how critical hearth care is.

Thomas A Suffield Nov 18 2022

Review for Dr. Johnson

I love Dr. Massey. He's been my pain and primary doctor for at least 5 years and he has always been a special physician who does not watch the clock during an appointment. He listens to me and usually has a solution for all of my issues and if he doesn't, he knows where to refer me.

Review for Dr. Massey

Dr. Haq has been my Doctor for 23 years .I will continue to be his patient.I highly recommend him .

Elvirs White Nov 12 2022

Review for Dr. Haq

Didn’t listen to my concerns. Kept pushing a drug that was contraindicated for my atypical symptoms. I switched doctors. I’m SOO glad I did.
