Norwich, NY |
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.

Terrific provider and staff. I never feel like a number. Staff are always friendly and attentive and providers listen to me. Their office is very active in the community as well. would recommend to anybody hope they never leave.

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.

patient for 18 months, never met her - records transferred, phoned for script renewal pharmacy notified - great if all you want is drugs
in Oxford, NY |
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!
Sometimes we have to ask questions of our patient's that they might not be comfortable to answer in order to make sure we are giving the best quality care. We do recall the patient I can say nothing was said to any of our staff concerning these issues. In closing we would have not done anything different and as always if there is ever any concern for the professionalism of our staff or the quality of our care please make myself or my office manager aware. 500 characters isn't enough for reply
