The doctor takes his time with you and documents everything. If the wait time is a little long, it's because he cares. I'd rather wait extra time than to be rushed out like I have been in the past at other medical facilities

Dr. Aaron could never keep an appointment. On the average he is 1:30 late to see his patients which is surprising because once you are in his office, he rushes through your chart

My visit was on 5/5/21. My appointment was at 9:00am. I sat there until 10:00am, finally saw a nurse completed all my breathing exercises and then sat there again for another hour waiting on the doctor. Once in his office all his time was spent on the computer entering my information, mentioned something about heart failure but would not elaborate. I called his emergency line on Friday and as of today have not even received a call back. How do you have an emergency line when you never return your patients calls...HORRIBLE DOCTOR, HORRIBLE BEDSIDE MANNER..HOW DO YOU EVEN HAVE A MEDICAL PRACTICE.

My experience with Dr. Aaron was less than ideal. I waited 4 hours in the waiting room past my appointment time before I was able to see him. When I was finally escorted into the examination room, Dr. Aaron's "bed side manner" was non-existent, no greeting, no acknowledgement of my presence at all. I have changed to another doctor for my health needs.

I waited as a new patient to see Dr. Aaron for 2.5 hours in the waiting room, once I finally got back to see him he was in with me for less than 5 minutes and never looked up from his computer once at me. Didn’t touch me at all to listen to my heart/lungs or anything. Worst doctor I’ve ever seen, and then he had no problem sending me as astronomical bill for what my insurance wouldn’t cover because he over charges.

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.

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.

Landenberg, PA – Jun 04, 2019
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.

Elkton, MD – Dec 13, 2018
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 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.

Aberdeen – Oct 30, 2017
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.
