    Buffalo, NY |
    Awful. The PAs and NPs are good though. She was very nasty,yelled at me, kept interrupting me when I wanted to bring up my heath concerns, and didn't address the main health issue I was there for. I'll be switching my primary care for sure.

    Dr.Tota-Thurn is a very thorough clinician. She is focused and complete in her examinations. She is also a very caring and engages into your individual needs. I am so happy that she's been my primary physician for the past few years.

    My concerns were completely dismissed and I felt I was treated poorly by both the PA and Dr Tota-Thurn.
    Buffalo, NY |
    My last year of care with Dr. Tota-Thurn has been terrible. I was unnecessarily sent to a specialist by her resident causing a great deal of stress, was inappropriately treated for a condition that landed me in the ER the day after I saw her PA and was dismissed and treated like a child when I tried to talk about alternative care options for a chronic medical condition. When I tried to change practitioners in the practice I was treated like I was the problem. POOR CARE & TERRIBLE SERVICE.

    Most caring and dedicated practitioner that I have ever met. She truly cares about her patients and their welfare.

    I WOULD NEVER GO BACK TO HER OR RECOMMEND HER TO ANY ONE! SHE WITH HELD VERY IMPORTANT HEALTH INFORMATION FROM ME FOR OVER A YR !!
    Clarence, NY |
    She is compassionate and concerned with you as a whole person. She listens and makes good suggestions and decisions about your health. I find her to be very thorough in reviewing test results and blood work and then explaining them clearly to me. I ask alot of questions and she answers them all completely and patiently. She has been my PCP for several years and I have been very happy with every aspect of her care.
    Lancaster, NY |
    She doesnt read test results. Makes way to many mistakes on medical issues.
