Review for Dr. David Schneider, MD

Dr. Peles is one of those very rare Doctors that can connect with their patients in a very personal and caring way. He spent a lot of time explaining conditions to my son and I believe that he is one doctor that can truly make a positive difference in his patients' lives.

Having seen many pain management doctors I feel lucky to have found Dr. Stauss! He is very kind, sincere and down to earth! Dr. Stauss takes the time to address my questions and concerns. He has years of experience and I trust his recommendations!

Greendale, WI - Jun 24 2019

Review for Dr. Thomas Stauss, MD

Dr Exten in my opinion was very knowledgeable and seems to care about her patients but when I called to schedule an appointment for injections at her suggestion I never received a call back... I guess this would fall on the nurse and not Dr. Exten but still.

Review for Dr. Patrick Lorge, DDS

I had an open primary rhinoplasty with Dr. Kevin Robertson in 2017 and a revision with him in 2018. The primary open rhinoplasty had very poor results. The only thing good that came out of the revision surgery is that I can breath through both nostrils.
