Patient Comments (3)
in Clarks Summit, PA |
His office staff is HORRIBLE. It is almost impossible to get a call back and follow through is poor. The doctor jumps from patient to patient and does not allow adequate opportunity to ask questions. If you call about test results and are told that no news is good news it's pretty certain that they have not been checked. Go elsewhere.

Wonderful doctor who listens to his patients, treats you like his equal, overall great doctor. And he is an even better person. Highly recommend him to anyone needing a doctor
in NEPA |
The staff is horrid. They never call you back. He jumps from patient to patient and doesn't listen. He will only give you medicine he wants to give you whether it works or not. He pushes new meds that come from Rx reps. They are too expensive. He goes on vacation every other week. He does not care about his patients. This is just a part-time job for him.
