Review for Dr. Misty Herod, MD

He treated my granddaughter, and broke her baby’s collarbone, so she wouldn’t have too many stitches. Tell me how 1 stitch heals faster than 4 or 5? My poor great grandson now has to have physical therapy at 3 weeks old.

Review for Dr. Ralph Turner, MD

Dr. Graves made me feel like someone was finally listening to me. I have been having some major pain and other health issues for the past 5 years and all the other Doctors just kept passing me to someone else. I am actually hopeful for the future

He answered every question I had. He diagnosed me very quickly based off of my symptoms. He was very friendly and so was his staff. I plan to keep him as my rheumatologist.

Dr. Scardina truly listens rather than making assumptions. He is thoughtful and careful in his responses, provides options and starts conservatively with medication.

Dr. Pitta is extremely conscientious. If you have to wait the front desk lets you know this. Dr. Pitta may be taking care of an emergency at the hospital.

Straight forward. Honest, explains well your condition and how she thinks the treatment should proceed. Not to proud to get other specialists involved. Has a very calming bit in charge demeanor.

Dr. Griffith is that wonderful combination of being an outstanding doctor who knows everything there is to know about anything-lung and also being just the nicest person you could ever meet. I drive 5 1/2 hrs. to see him, and he's worth every mile!

Had a great visit with Dr. Vasquez. Office was super nice and didn't have to wait an excessive amount of time. He seems like he genuinely cares about making you feel better, too. Helped a lot with my pain that many other doctors I went to couldn't figure out. I trust him completely!

She has seen things in myseld and helped to identify what they might be, as well as helping to provide useful coping skills for numerous situations. She is amazing and always attentive. She knows what I need in most times when I do not have an inclination on what to do.

Review for Dr. Sridevi Pitta, MD

Very impressed with Dr. Small. We recently moved to this area and were very fortunate to find Dr. Small. She answers all your questions and doesn't make you feel rushed. We also had an emergency situation that she made herself available for. Would highly recommend her.

Review for Dr. Tamara Small, MD

Met Dr Weiner when he did ablation on a family member, then when I needed a similar procedure I asked for him since I knew his work had been successful with the family member. He made sure I knew what was going to be done and explained everything. I would recommend him to others.

Review for Dr. Stanislav Weiner, MD

Begged him to help my son and because of his refusal to listen and get him mental care, my son is now going to juvenile. He does not belong in there with criminals! Thanks a lot DOC! Sometimes PROFESSIONALS should maybe listen to mothers pleading for help!!!!

I have never been to a doctor that has such an urbanized group of people working with him. Just one problem after another. I think Dr. Bradley is very knowledgeable and a good doctor but I think he may be spread way way way too thin.
