Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Ravenna is the worst physician I have ever had, and I'm old enough to have seen many over the years. He made an authoritarian treatment decision, with which I disagreed, and which had a dramatically negative impact on my health. I strongly regret not finding another doctor immediately. My health was consequently quite compromised. I have worked with a specialist the past 1 1/2 years to restore my health and am doing somewhat better. I reviewed Paul's medical notes, which were replete with history, treatment, diagnostic and patient response errors, and which informed his treatment direction. I wondered how well he listened to me during appointments. He can be empathic and caring at times, but disdainful and cold at other times. In general, his presentation was inconsistent across appointments. He gave me two very inaccurate diagnoses, one later corrected by a better trained physician. His errors reflected poor medical knowledge. He really still needs to work under supervision.

I have been a patient of Dr. Ravenna for about 3 years now, and I have experienced him as kind, thoughtful, and most importantly, an excellent physician. He is thorough without ordering needless tests; he is efficient without rushing. He likes to guide his patients through lifestyle changes before putting them on medications, a practice I admire; however, when medication is needed he won't hesitate to do whatever it takes to ensure you can live a healthy life.

I met with Dr. Ravenna recently. It was a wonderful visit. He was adept at listening to my health concerns, engaging and offered advice and referrals that I could follow-up with. I found him extremely helpful and would definitely recommend him if you are in need of an internal medical doctor.

I found Dr. Ravenna after moving to the city and looking for primary care physicians in the area with great reviews. He's progressive, punctual and attentive and listened to my history and all of my concerns. He is also extremely responsive on the MyChart app which has made scheduling and facilitating my medical plans and treatments a breeze.
