Doc is great but you can't get in to see him, and the nurses don't return your calls, it doesn't matter how good he is. First time, I was bitten by dozens of bugs and the intense itching caused me to scratch myself bloody. Calls were not returned. This time, after exposure to an allergen, my scalp is itchy, raw and bleeding. I tried all remedies I had. I have job interviews, psoriasis on my face, can't sleep, first appointment available is 3 weeks and after 2 messages, no return calls. Sad.

I have been a patient for the last 10 years but Dr. Stashouer's practice has really declined. You can't get an appointment for several months and then the appt is 10 mins. They dismiss you. Nothing is ever available and when you do get seen, they rush you in and out.

My husband and I have both been patients of Dr Stashower for years and have complete confidence in his diagnostic and surgical skills. We are grateful for his attentive and caring professionalism.

I give Dr Stashower 5 stars in all areas of his practice. He is very responsive to patient needs plus provides excellent medical treatment. The office staff is extremely friendly and very willing to help expedite scheduling appointments whenever necessary. The nurse staff as well is extremely friendly, caring, and proficient. Waiting time is always a minimum. The positive work environment created by Dr. Stashower within his practice is an example other physicians should follow.

I took my 8 year old son to have two warts removed. Total charges $443 before the insurance adjustment!!!!!! Turns out there was added cost because they sent the wart for Biopsy which costed $143. I called the office and spoke with the office manager Cheryl who told me that they biopsy everything they cut off. The problem is that NO ONE asked if I wanted anything biopsied and the physician assistant clearly identified it as a wart. Unfortunately, because I signed a paper to have it removed, t

Dr. Stashower’s office has the most professional, friendly, smart and proficient team I have witnessed in a very long time. The entire office works as one! When you call the office they answer phone with a “smile” you can hear the friendliness in the voice, they are helpful and caring. I have been a patient for several years and would refer everyone to them without hesitation.

We have been seeing him for 5 years with no complaints- until - Last visit I felt completely dismissed by him. He was so intent on the young med student that he prescribed a med that I later found to be not what was needed. My husbands last visit early this year was a debacle. He did not recognize a shingles outbreak on his face, dangerously close to an eye and prescribed cortisone cream which is the worst thing for shingles. He said to wait 90 days. Luckily we went to our PCP the next day .

I tried to setup an appointment as a new patient. They said 3 weeks and with a physician's assistant. Also, the phone rang for a long time and the person answering didn't sound as though they were enjoying their jobs. It would be nice if they had an N/A rating for some of the ratings as I didn't have experience with all of them. For the ones that I couldn't rate I did a 3.
