Newark, NJ |
My son was diagnosed with failure to thrive at a week old. Dr Screason found blood in his stool and directed us to the best formula to meet his needs. Now, at 4 months he is thriving at 16lbs!!! Thank you Dr Screws! Also, the whole staff is kind and compassionate.

This appointment was very dissapointing. Dr. Screws's bedside manner was very poor with me, as the parent, as well as with my child. He was gruff and rude when he was examining my child, and he talked to me like I was an idiot. The questions and concerns I had were never quite answered. They were only answered by sarcastic remarks and by eye rolls. I have never had such a disappointing experience with a doctor. Needless to say, we will not be returning.

My 3 month old's stool tested positive for blood. For a month following that discovery I have eliminated dairy, soy, eggs, and legumes to try to eliminate the blood. This has been a very stressful time bc I changed my entire diet and still no results. Seeing Dr Screws put my mind at ease. He is personable, funny, caring, and thorough. I am very skeptical when it comes to trusting doctors but I immediately felt like my child was in good hands. He spent a whole hour addressing our concerns.

After months of worrying about what was going on with my infant I was referred to Dr. Screws and my mind was put at ease......even though I did not yet know what the outcome would be, I felt confident in him. After coming to the conclusion that my daughter would need to have both a colonoscopy as well as an endoscopy she was scheduled for the procedures within a matter of days. A biopsy confirmed his initial thoughts. He then took the time to make sure I would know what my next steps would be.

He was great with our 6 month old, you could tell he really loves kids! He was very thorough and listened to all of our concerns before coming up with a treatment plan.
in Soddy Daisy, TN |
He only prescribed medication for my child and only suggested a biopsy to check for malnutrition and nothing more. he didn't address the problem and then overcharged me for the visit.
