Patient Comments (19)
in Tampa |
. The initial visit was very much cattle being herded. After an extremely long wait, over 2 hours I was seen by the nurse practitioner.I was treated for something I had no symptoms on only preliminary blood works. I had a severe allergic reaction to an antibiotic given to treat no apparent problem. The final blood work proved it. No quality care or help given after my reaction. I was then billed for a follow-up for a problem they created. The worst heath care experience I've even had.

Horrible uncaring greedy practice. Treat patients like they're nothing but a huge bother unless they can send you for tests to make them money. Stay FAR away from this office it's a scam and a joke.
tampa, fl |
One star means NO stars. This practice is a joke, a scam and should be closed down. They falsify patient records to invent imaginary diseases so they can have the practice defraud the insurance companies to make the business more money. DO NOT GO TO THIS PRACTICE!! You NEVER get to see a doctor, just a clueless and rude nurse practitioner for about 2 minutes if you're lucky. NONE of your concerns will be addressed if there is no money it it for them. NO patient CARE at all!!!
in Tampa, FL |
Absolutely horrible practice !! No one ever calls you back no one follows up on anything they invent diseases to put on your chart to test you for so they can make more money and defraud Medicare and Medicaid. I'm shocked the government has not shut this place down every review I read on them is terrible.
Arcadia, FL |
RUN!!!! They are the WORST! All about the money and not about care. They require an office visit just to refill a prescription (prescriptions I've been on for 10 years!!) With an office visit fee of $116!!! Then they write the perception for a minimal dose so to have to go through it all again! Even turned me away WITHOUT CARE after I came to have my smashed fingernail pierced, saying 'we don't do that, but you can watch YouTube and do it yourself' AFTER charging me an office visit of course!
Since 2001, I have been coming to see Dr LoCicero. I remember being diagnosed with pneumonia that year and Dr LoCicero calling me near Christmas to notify me. Elizabeth, her ARNP, is my favorite! My husband also comes to LMG to see Elizabeth. The wait time to see a provider here has greatly improved since I started coming here... I only waited 10 minutes or so before being seen by Dr LoCicero and her assistant today! I like having the lab and other diagnostic services under one roof.
Here for lab work and ultrasound. The techs have been great. Will recommend.

This practice is all about money and nothing else. They could care less about their patients! You schedule an appointment and they are constantly cancelled by Dr. Gerrish. Then on top of that, they won't renew your medicine until you come in...that's if there's time for you to be seen. Be prepared for a rollercoaster ride to get anything accomplished. Personally, I would stay away!!!!
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
Amazing how all staff members are powerless to help their patients and worse, they don't even care. They continually say: "it's out of my hands. No one is here who can help." The practice is nothing but a money machine. Very sad and disturbing.... Handling of prescriptions and insurance is appalling!!
We were taken care of quickly and gently. I had blood drawn and they were wonderful.
Great! In and out so quickly. Staff was fun and courteous. Love the waiting room.
in Tampa, FL |
The wait is ridiculous! Have an appt. at 9, you arrive at 8:15, you get called back at 10:10, seen by someone at close to 11am. You literally have to cancel your whole days schedule when coming in for an appt. here. My Grandmother is old school and doesn't like change, that is the only reason she is still here. If you are a new and looking for a Doctor, this is not the place for you. But if you don't mind the 2 til 3 hour wait past your appt. time, then this is the place for you.
Tampa, FL |
Locicero is a team medical center. Over the years I have met many wonderful associates. Michelle, Pam, Gina, Jason, Tom, Nick and more... Patients are often restless as delays do happen but be assured this is due to being helpful with unexpected needs of patients.
in Tampa, FL |
My friends and family Do not deserve to wait for 3 hours for an appointment.
Tampa |
Don't waist your time or money, you will be better off gong to the nearest ER. You will most likely never see a physician & be required to take a miriad of test with no conclusion in sight. You are not a patient here, you are a number!
I saw Dr Deb Youhn today she was great, too sad she is leaving. Everyone in the office is friendly and welcoming.
in Tampa, FL |
The one time I actually saw Dr. LoCicero (1st visit) was great. But getting an appt with her is hard & last month I was told she wasn't seeing patients...(?). Mid-Level practitioners vary in quality, one time I waited over an hour in an exam room for the NP/PA while hearing mine chatting about personal BS with others at the nursing station. Lw/oBS. Dr. seems more interested in expanding $$ opportunities (lab, meds, supplements, cosmetic stuff) than providing quality medical care. Too bad.
Extremely long wait times. Crowded waiting room. Not so friendly staff. Gave it one more chance, but won't be back.
in Tampa |
I am a new patient and had a very pleasant, professional experience. I would definitely recommend.
