Review for Dr. Hall

Dr. Speidel was nice enough to 'fill in' when my son's regular Dr. wasn't available. She was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable about depression and had a very nice way with my son during a very tough time for him. I'd recommend her highly.

Review for Dr. Speidel

I highly recommend Dr. Albert. He has helped me control my gout and I have not had another occurrence since i first started as a patient of his over a year and a half ago. He is both personable and professional and is a pleasure to work with.

I have been seeing him for a couple of years now. He listens to his patients and is very kind. He did a back surgery in 2018. I wouldn’t go to any one else for my spine issues. Highly recommend.

Apr 26 2020

Review for Dr. Mitchanis

Very nice staff and always takes care of my needs. Doctors are busy and they can't call every patient back so the staff is there for that reason and they do a very good job of it. Thank you for your work

This doctor hands out pills like candy. Addictive drugs, to people that she treated for prior drug addictions in the past. Now he has new drug addiction problems because of her over prescribing. Stay away from this doctor at all costs!

He's terrible at writing referrals on time, Tiffany who answered the phone got a bad attitude, pure scum, he pounded his fist on his desk while berating me to hurry up with my symptom list. I do not recommend him as a PCP.

Listened to my symptoms and examined me and spent time to explain my diagnosis. I had been to a different orthopedic doctor who spent little time barely touched me and was treating me for OA when what I have is AVN. Would definitely recommend Dr Kroner
