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.
