Review for Dr. Mark Hoffmann, MD

Seems competent and seemed to cover everything, but has has a bit of arrogance and snarkiness to his personality that I did not like.

Review for Dr. Steven Brooks, MD

Unbelievably inconsiderate toward patient and families wishes when family is being pressured to transport family member to a highly undesirable facility. Advising the family against the patient’s wishes and telling them “this is not a game” in their dire need to request a more competent facility.

Jul 17 2019

Review for Dr. Thomas Gabert, MD

Competent if you fall within what is expected for your condition. If you don’t respond to standard treatment, forget it .

Review for Dr. Michael Sheehan, MD

I had an appointment with her this week. She was thorough, professional, knowledgeable and everything you could ask from someone helping you at a confusing time. She answered all my questions while putting me at ease. I only gave 5 stars because there was no option for 10.

My husband has had many visits with Dr. Kansari over the past several years. We find him not only friendly, with a quiet sense of humor, but also knowledgeable and caring. His recommended treatment has kept my husband’s RA under control. We are thankful for his services.

I have been going to Dr. Tuman for probably since he came to Eye Clinic of WI. He is wonderful. Very thorough and explains things. He referred me to a neurologist. Dr. Tuman is a very good doctor and I wouldn't think of going to anyone else.
