Your trust is our top concern.

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.

Already gave one but didn't realize I had to submit. So here goes again. Dr Degler is a great Dr. Listens to my concerns. Changes meds if necessary. Is always attentive and kind. I'm so glad I found him when I moved to Pa. Really caring. I've never heard a complaint about him when I've talked to other people. He is the best.??

Dr. Degler is a true professional from the way he dresses to his demeanor with patients. He keeps current with what's pertinent in the medical field and applies this knowledge accordingly. He asks the right questions when diagnosing a patient and clearly explains the course of action he is prescribing. When I was in the hospital, he visited every morning with a status report and what was planned for the day. I am fortunate to have Dr. Degler for my family doctor.
