I did a sleep study at Dr Aaron's Elkton Office. I tried on 4-masks in preparation of using the CPAP machine. I selected 2-masks to potentially use for the study, that remained in the room. The 2-masks not selected were placed back in the boxes they came out of and the lids were closed up. After briefly sleeping, I woke up because of the heat, I couldn't sleep because I was sweating, room was 80+ degrees and I had to wait over 30-minutes for the technician. I was tossing & turning, the bed was hard & hurt my hips. Then I started wondering about the cleanliness of the masks I chose to potentially wear. I did finally fall asleep for a few hours. After the technician removed the wires, he left taking the masks that were in the room with him. I have no idea what was done with the masks that had remained with me. I can't bring myself to go back to complete the study with the CPAP machine for fear of contracting something. If I could i would give Dr. Aaron a negative rating.

Never on time. My wife is currently there in the waiting room still unseen. Her appointment was for 530pm. I experienced the same issue when I went to Dr Aaron for my sleep study years ago. Rather than give you a take home sleep study, his office forces patients to spend the night multiple times before getting hardware to take home for a sleep study.

Doctor Aaron has and is thorough, and to the point. Doctor Aaron expresses his point of view to me, the direction we should go, and what is needed to get there.

Trying to get a replacement CPAP. Went to appointment, filled out papers and NOTHING. Only follow up from his office was to keep sending dunning invoices to me even though I had already paid.

Dr. Aaron is arrogant while trying to be calm and helpful. He does NOT listen to the patient and gives outrageous responses to questions. I believe that if I didn't pursue the issue with another doctor, that my husband would get much worse. If I could give him a zero star, I would.

Unprofessional. At first visit had a nonprofessional give me a test to evaluate if I required oxygen. Dr. Aaron did not listen I was recovering from walking pneumonia and prescribed JUST on this test. Really? Oxygen for 24/7. Had his head buried in his laptop and minimal eye contact. Unprofessional. Follow up visit in PA office with ceiling tiles with mold! Made to wait 2 1/2 hours!! Found no evidence of any reason suggested a lung biopsy. Of course I didn’t follow up w that advise. Found a professional Pulmonologist! DO NOT RECOMMEND!

Difficulty reaching anyone to schedule an appointment. Busy signal for extended periods of time (30 min lunch period) over several days. Response once finally reached- I was told mornings only and when I asked to clarify, she repeated mornings only but no range of times until I specifically asked "from what time until what time please". Long wait once in the office. Prescription not ready because never called in and then wrong dose from what discussed.

Unbelievably Unprofessional. Should have his license revoked. Each visit I have to wait over an hour for him to show up. He is rushed and unkind. Sorry I wasted my money there.

Most unprofessional physician I’ve ever met. Walks into the room, looks at his computer, doesn’t look at me, and starts asking questions. I didn’t know who he was. Crowds his office with patients by scheduling more than he can see in the allotted time. Got a sleep study but no one called with results. Someone called wanting to send a CPAP to my house. No training or explanation why I need it.

All the other reviews are accurate. Not a pleasant experience. My case is straightforward and he is in-network and fairly close, otherwise I would have gone to someone, anyone, else. His overnight sleep-study nurse in Elkton is really good, however. She is efficient and friendly.

I had a consultation and I left feeling like I was a inconvenience. He asked me what I was "complaining" about to warrant a consultation. When explaining the next steps he talked a mile a minute. If I have a choice I will not return.

I saw Dr Aaron since 1999. When I first saw him, he was very thorough. However, the last time I saw him (2016), all he did was listen to my chest. He sat at his desk and just reviewed his records on a laptop. I'm not going back.

Thanks Dr. Aaron for getting me in to see u quickly when my CPAP machine broke and for getting my prescription faxed out in a timely matter. I have severe sleep apnea and rely heavily on my CPAP machine and use it every night. Dr. Aaron spent as much time with me as was needed to update my files, yes, he asked a lot of questions and spent a good bit of time entering the info on his laptop but that's what he needs to do to be thorough, considering the fact that I haven't seen him for a few yrs.

Had a consolation with this doctor recently. i was waiting forever, then they moved me into three rooms like musical chairs until i went into his office. Too many people waiting. He never once looked up to see my face. I was with my son and this Dr. thought he was my husband as he never tried to look at us. He had over 100 symptom questions that he was reading from his computer. I asked him to slow down but he said he has to get through them. He was hiding in front of his monitor the entire time

I have evidence that this office double books and even triple books same times. How can three people waiting in the packed waiting area have exact same appointment times for a single Doctor? Dr. Aaron will not take the time to explain condition in detail. Treats me as if don't have the mental capacity to understand my condition. I have put up with the BS for too long, time to find a professional that actually cares about treating patients and not just over booking office visits.

Wait time is 2 to 3 hours. Dr. Aarons does not tell you a thing about your condition all he does is ask questions and updates your answers. No matter who many test you take he does not tell you the results of testing. All you know is your condition is getting worse and his updates do not exist. Everyone I talk to about Dr. Aaron complains about the same thing.
