Review for Dr. Brenton Murphy, ND

I've been seeing Dr. Morrison for a few years and am very happy with him. He is always very up to date on my history and ties it all together with current information from my visits. He's warm, attentive and very relaxed in his approach but also, very smart and thorough.

Review for Dr. Elizabeth McLarney, MD

I've seen her for years and I trust her knowledge, skill and integrity. It is true that there is a long wait time to see her. Dermatologists are in short supply in this area. But when she is with me at my appt, her attention is focused on me and no one else.

Sep 16 2019

Review for Dr. Rebecca Jones, MD

Prepare to wait 45 minutes to an hour. Dr. Ferry is always running behind.

Sep 07 2019

Review for Dr. Margaret Ferry, MD

I have been to many doctors in my lifetime and no matter where my life has taken me I have never even come close to the care I receive from Dr. Goldberg’s office. He has saved my life more than once and now his wife, who is in practice with him is providing me with the same care and thoroughness.

Review for Dr. Thomas Evans, MD

She did run late, but it was worth the wait. I felt she really listened to me and took into consideration my concerns and ideas about medications. She also did some research on that laptop computer while I was there and shared it with me. Very valuable.

Paul is patient and caring. He takes the time to figure out what’s going on and Listens to his patients! Would highly recommend

Dr. Burke has since moved from this area, but I am seriously considering making the 4 hour trip to see him if needed.

Review for Dr. Robert Burke, MD

Dr. Don is an internationally acclaimed expert that has lectured around the world. At the same time, he treats every patient as the most important person alive. It's rare to find such an expert, and even more rare to find such a gentle, caring person. I recommend him without reservation.

Mar 11 2019

Review for Dr. Donald McLaughlin, DDS

Dr. Fox is a wonderful surgeon and a really dedicated doctor. The kindest most considerate provider I have ever worked with. He was chief of surgery where he worked in the past and is very competent.

Review for Dr. Brett Hynninen, MD

Lacks empathy. Pre-judges based on a flawed world view. This would be fine or at least acceptable in a doctor....except for how this ends up affecting treatment decisions.

Review for Dr. Brenton Murphy, ND

He’s an awesome provider. Takes time to really get to know you and your health concerns. He’s really good at offering different treatments, both naturopathic and conventional and working with you instead of forcing drugs on you!

Review for Dr. Brenton Murphy, ND

I saw Dr. Stein as an ER patient at BMH. I was grateful for her genuine caring and thorough suggestions for follow-up.

Review for Dr. Ellen Stein, MD

Dr. Murphy may be the best doctor I've ever met with! He's kind, responsive, and extremely knowledgeable, and takes time to address all questions/concerns thoroughly. Cannot recommend highly enough!

Dr. Austin is very competent and a truly nice person. The person who answers the phone is not so nice - irratable and impatient. I really wish someone would talk to her about her manner. It's been consistent over the years.

Excellent ability to assess the entire person, not just look at what your initial complaint might be. Has been invaluable to me.

Review for Dr. Elizabeth McLarney, MD

Dr. Potash is a helpful Dr. and makes my son feel quite comfortable, esp. since my son is a challenged adult. He has put my mind at ease in the tests he has performed and the knowledge he shares with us both. I would recommend Dr. Potash to anyone in need of a Dr. in this field.

Dover, VT - Aug 22 2017

Review for Dr. Jeffry Potash, MD

This doctor has absolutely no "bedside manner". He is very condescending and snotty. People go to the emergency room for help, not to be treated like second class citizens.

I've been seeing Dr Levin since October of 2011. She has always been personable and caring. She treats me physically with great efficiency and supports my personal and emotional well being. Every time I see her she checks in on any other outlying issues in my life. I highly recommend Dr Levin.
