      I am a big fan of Dr. Elizabeth Moore and all of the staff there at Dr. Banks-Lindner. I was treated with kindness and dignity. I cannot stress enough how being treated with dignity made me feel as if my problems were already being noticed. It is unnecessary to detail my particulars, only know that if you are honest and forthright these Doctors and excellent staff will treat you like family and that is all that can be asked for in today's world. My life is better for going to see Dr. Elizabeth Moore. I hope to meet Dr. Banks-Lindner on one of my next visits. God bless you all. Tony Winter

      Saw Dr. Linder very briefly. Too briefly for a total exam! That’s why i never got treatment! Her PA has spread untrue rumors about me. Interrupted and spoke over me during a consult. Most importantly. Lacked any form of caring or the ability to empathize! Unprofessional so just avoid. This is the bottom of the barrel when it comes to “professionalism and caring...not to mention honesty. Sad, pathetic excuse for medical professionals! Stay away.

      This “Doctor” is not honest nor professional. Her PA is dishonest and treated me so poorly I cannot find the words! They left me without very medically necessary medication over a weekend. Called the emergency number due to the seriousness of consequences of not having medication. Refused to speak with me. Going off this medication can result in very serious consequences. They did not care!! Save your time and money. See a real Doctor! ????

      Myself, my wife and my sister all see Dr. Banks. I have several chronic health issues, as does my sister. Dr. Banks has always taken excellent care of us. She is an excellent doctor who explains things clearly, but more importantly, she *listens* so she understands exactly what is going on. I have never left her office feeling any health issue was unaddressed. I have referred numerous family members to Dr. Banks, and they are satisfied as well. Switching to Dr. Banks was the best move I made.

      Best doctor I have ever had and her staff are great. I love that they have a patient portal and that every time I call the office I get a real human being not some automated system. Always lets me know when I am due for any annual testing.

      I had seen Dr. Banks for about 2 years. At first her practice was good. Then she gradually became less efficient with the addition of more medical staff. For the reviewer who says Dr. Banks did something for high BP. I had just the opposite experience. I got alarmingly high BP. She seems way too busy now. Very disappointed. I have found a much better D.O. near Binghamton. Overall Dr. Banks is incompetent.

      I've been a patient of Dr. Banks for three years. Two years ago, she noticed that my BP was significantly higher than typical for me. Rather than just prescribe a medicine and send me on my way, she sent me to have my blood drawn at CHM. Since she was so concerned about the outcome, she placed a rush on the results. Before I got home, she called to inform me to check myself in at the ER. The diagnosis - end stage renal failure. Because of her, I am alive today after 10 months of dialysis.

      Very unprofessional as a Doctor to let her and Michelle Provost,PA, nurse, Cathy talk to patients the way she does. She forcefully talks down and over patients instead of listening and trying to help. I was called out on a drug screen, told my labs came back as that of a steroid user, which I am not, and neglected to refill my psychiatric medication for the day it was due. I had called for my refill 4 days in advance. This nurse shouldn't be a nurse and her license should be pulled!
