Patient Reviews (3)
in Langhorne, PA |
Extremely friendly, helpful and attentive staff.
in Philadelphia, PA |
Went in for nerve pain, got a diagnosis of an inflammatory muscle disease (that's likely wrong) without any tests besides a standard blood test. And never addressed the cause of the nerve pain. Gave me some meds and was told to call when I needed more. Forget trying to get answers or clarification because you'll never speak with him over the phone. He has the office staff do it so a 2 minutes conversation takes 3 days with all the back and forth. Needless to say, I'm not impressed.
Neither were we impressed. Unfortunately, we weren't informed at the time of scheduling that "Dr. Jane", knew more than I, nor the many previous physicians she had" wasted her time with", could ever have possibly known about neurology and the nervous system. How silly of me (and those other neurologists)!
in Langhorne, PA |
Nice and helpful when you are actually in the office, but otherwise I was very disappointed. A phone call from a receptionist saying you're having seizures, we're prescribing this medication, no we don't want to see you in person to discuss your results, see you in six months! does not inspire a lot of confidence. I had to INSIST on a follow-up to speak to the doctor and was told nothing about the medication being prescribed, the side-effects (which are pretty scary) etc just told to take it
Sorry, but we do not believe it is ethical to bill your insurance company for an office visit, to review any and all possible medication side effects . We provide handouts for that purpose and we gladly answer specific questions and concerns within reason.
