Dr.Eric Traister has completely misdiagnosed the injury. We went to get second opinion and cancel a follow up appointment with the office well over 24hrs prior to appointment. We have been charged for the cancellation.Also a copy of the ultrasound that was completed by Dr.Traister and paid by us was requested multiple times but never provided for us.

My three sons and my husband have seen Dr. Traister for annual physicals and for sports-related injuries over the years. He has a great bedside manner with the boys, ages 9-18, and speaks very respectfully to both them and me. He listened attentively when they were explaining their injuries and the symptoms, treated them appropriately, and followed up with us. I found him to be very professional and courteous, as well as light-hearted when appropriate. We continue to schedule appointments with him when needed!

I've seen Dr. Traister on multiple occasions for different conditions over the last few years. Every time I've been in the office the staff have always been timely and cared for me in a very kind manner. Dr. Traister is extremely knowledgeable and has an excellent bedside manner. These are not traits that are easy to find in this day and age. I appreciate his thoughtfulness and attention to detail. Thank you so much for taking great care of me! On a side note, I couldn't help but read the most recent review. I've never used K Health, but it's really a shame to hear people refer to our medical providers as "an arrogant little jerk" or "doc in a box" or "quackery," especially for everything they're doing for us during these COVID times. Those reviews lose all credibility in my book and show a complete lack of respect for all the rigorous training these doctors go through to take care of us.

He is an arrogant little jerk. Used him on a mobile health app K Health. The only reason I did was so I didn’t have to go to Doc in the box on Sunday with Covid patients. I pulled a muscle in my back and he told me to stretch & then got all high and mighty bc I requested a mild muscle relaxer. If he was such a great Dr he wouldn’t have to do this quackery.

Dr. Traister overdosed my daughter on a powerful migraine medicine and never took full accountability for his actions. He wrote the prescription for twice the amount that should have been written. After the overdose, she had her first seizure ever at age 18. She now has a diagnosis of epilepsy. He may seem nice and knowledgeable, but you should be cautious when choosing him as your doctor.

I've recently received PRP injections from Dr. Traister. He was very informative on what to do before , and after my treatment. He took time to truly evaluate what would help me most. I'm only a few weeks out, and I'm already feeling much less pain. Dr. Traister uses ultrasound guided injections to ensure proper location of the PRP. He was able to hit my pain sites right on target. I really appreciate Dr. Traister and his attention to details.

Great to work with. I've been very happy with the advice he's provided. He's easy to work with and thorough in understanding background and making a diagnosis.
