I was nervous when I arrived and the staff was friendly and comforting. Dr Listhaus has a great personality. He took the time to explain everything and ask me if I had any questions or concerns.

Since moving out to PA 2 years ago I have seen Dr. Listhaus multiple times. He is a polite and patient Dr with the best interest of his patients in mind. What I am particularly impress about him is that he is a straight shooter and tells you what is going on with out sugar coating the prognosis. This is something I look for in all my doctors.

Dr. Listhaus, MD did not keep me waiting. The exam was efficient and he answered all of my questions. The other staff who assisted me were excellent in doing their jobs in a timely manner and answering my questions as well. Time is important to me because I have a number of commitments and appointments so can't just sit for long periods of time and wait to be seen.
