We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Great Doctor but staff is horrible never calls back. Front office staff is the key to having a successful practice and this one is NOT worth the aggravation .Coming from an over night stay at MWH and we cannot get a follow up appointment for 5 weeks and my 85 year old mother in law is still in a lot of pain. Visiting nurse has also been calling office as well and no return phone call. Practice is taking on more than they can handle since Dr Nadelson and Dr Luke left.

Beware.. The front office is horrible. They ask you personal questions to decide if your important enough to be seen. Their attitude is highly unprofessional and was just hung up on by Lita as I was asking questions. Super passive aggressive and will never be back. I have over 4 family members that go there all have the same issue.
