Workman comp made me see him twice. This man couldn’t care less about what I had to say or how I felt. Last thing he said to me after he abruptly left room was “have a nice life” Sorry but maybe that’s why he’s so old god is punishing him

Dr Corona has been taking care of my family for years. Both for my parents and now for my own children. He has always been patient and kind and has taken excellent care of various needs from broken bones to knee and back pain.

Misdiagnosis, disinterest, no follow up even after receiving accurate information from tests. Avoid!

Finally brought some relief after seeing a few other docs who couldn't help.

The worst. I hobbled into his office after taking a fall this past April. I had previously visited him in the past for pain in my left knee in 2014. This time my ankle was swollen and due to the fall it was pain in both knees. He walked in and not even examining he said well your foot is deform and the only thing i can do if give you pain medication. I left his office and went to another orthopedic doctor only after their xray showed i had a torn tendon.

This is absolutely the worst doctor I have visited in my life and he should be fired. Summit Medical has lots of great doctors and he does not belong there! DO NOT seek him for advice or you will regret it. He was mean, condescending, rude and did not answer any of my questions. He also does not believe in PT, which was the best thing ever, and most of my knee OA went away after only 4 sessions.

Came in for a severe back pain. He examined me and requested an x-ray. He was not eager to answer any of my questions, did not show any sympathy and made me feel stupid. I suppose he's seen thousands of patients over his long career so if he knows it all how come i don't? He suggested i stay home from work and rest and said he'd be delighted to write a note for work. This is all he wrote "OOW till further notice". Well, that'll do it!

Dr Corona is a caring and cheerful doctor who has taken care of both my bum knees. Simply the best. Staff and office personnel cheerful and extraordinary in their helpfulness.
in Scotch Plains, NJ |
in the exam room for 10 minutes. He made me walk a few steps around the tiny exam room, rubbed my knees for approximately 20 seconds.... he then determined that I needed shots in both knees and according to him, " I'll be good to go ." He wouldn't even allow me to explain my cause of injury or history of past orthopedic procedure regarding one of my knees. I attempted to explain my profession and my concerns to safely return to work and continue to earn a living. One word: UNPROFESSIONAL
in N. New Jersey |
Wow. Don't think I've ever interacted with a physician who has come across more disinterested, un-forthcoming with opinion/diagnosis, and generally dismissive. I mentioned this experience to my spouse who responded, If only you had mentioned you were seeing him, I would have warned you; I had exactly the same experience.
Union, NJ |
Seemed very uncaring. I asked about degenerative bone disease he stated never heard of it. I've been to a few doctors in regard to the pain I'm in and he has been the worst. He gave me an injection left the room with the other narcotics left open. Not going back.
