I have been going to Dr. Maciulla for over 20 years. She has been there for me through my pregnancy and any other issue that has arisen. She is incredibly responsive, concerned, warm and competent. I always know that I can go to her with any issue.

I've seen Dr. Herman several times in the past few decades for colonoscopies. Each time, I've been well taken care of by both the staff and Dr. Herman. I won't use another doctor for my procedures unless he retires from practice.

I'd like to update my review below. There were some issues with this insurance provider impacting a lot of people. Dr. Gallaghers office was behind in rectifying the issue due to Covid. She has since personally called me and is working to fix the issue. Dr. Gallagher is a caring professional.

We had a great experience with Dr Oh Tan ... very amicable and has patience to answer all questions in detail.. she’s the most knowledgeable doctor in this practice .. we love her ..the only drawback is it’s very hard to get her appointment..

Been a patient for years, he listens, provides options and is concerned with results. Makes adjustments accordingly to find best treatment options. The appointment lasts as long as i need to discuss issues, i have never been rushed. He dealt with my insurance to get needed treatments approved.

My experience was not good. He only visited me once and said that he can not help me without giving me any recommendation. He said that there are many cases that they cannot help. He should be able to help only people with simple straightforward issues though.
