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.

Listens,easy to talk to,takes you seriously not dismissive like some Drs,don’t feel rushed like you got 2min to say what you gotta say like some Drs. Seems like he cares&has compassion which some Drs seem to lack like he became a Dr to help people while some Drs it really feels like it’s just the financial aspect that will have you out in 2min&dismiss your concerns&not answer or give any advice. I would trust him with my health. It was quicker to get appts with him than some other Drs where I waited 1-3months,waiting 3months for an appt is too much to me when you have health issues,I was able to get an appt at the time in 2 weeks. Like him but can’t get him back because of insurance issues.

He takes time and really listens to you and responds in considerate manner. He is through looking at your overall health. He listened to my problem and made a suggestion while other doctors brushed off as nothing.

I hadn't been to a primary care physician in a while and made an appt with Dr. DiScala after reading some great reviews, and I'm glad I did. He has a great personality, talks to you like a human being and really seems to care about his patients. I felt like I could really trust him. One of the best docs I've been to.

I scheduled an appointment, left work early, came on time, did paperwork, then told the wait was 45 min. I told them this was not ok, that I had another appointment elsewhere and I waited 2 months for an appt. I waited the 45 minutes, then left, leaving waiting for nothing, and now having to find a new doctor. I read reviews where people expect to wait for doctors, I expect more professionalism and if I schedule an appointment, the doctor should respect that.
