From my beginning visit with Dr. Corba several years ago to now, I have found him to be one of the best physicians and specialists I have had in my lifetime. His direct yet caring manner and professionalism is very much appreciated. In the very beginning he targeted the correct diagnosis of my problem which had eluded other doctors prior to him. As I developed sciatica later he proscribed and performed my treatments which has brought me welcomed relief. I have recommended him to my friends.

When no one else helped Dr. Corba did, I am eternally grateful for his expertise and compassionate care. He is so down to earth, actually listens and takes his time to explain all your questions & concerns, You never feel rushed!! Thank you Dr. Corba all Doctors should be like you. and truly care about your patients!!!

Dr Corba was recommended by a friend who is a nurse. My mother was in and out of the hospital since Dec. he has been the first doctor who truly listened and explained to our family what could be done to improve her quality of life with having multiple compression fractures. We are grateful to have someone like him in our community. . Recommend him highly.

I began seeing Dr Corba after an auto accident and after seeing several other doctors in the area who were unable, too busy and/or just wanted to write me a script for pain meds and send me on my way. Dr Corba took the time to listen, care, explain and find a plan so I could get back to my active life with less pain. Even going the extra mile taking time to explain tests another doctor ordered but failed to explain - if you're in pain and want help getting back to your life - he's the guy!
in Allentown, PA |
My first time to see a pain specialist, and after thoroughly going through my history, showing me my MRI , Dr. Corba and I decided on which plan of treatment would work best for me. Before leaving the room he asked if I had any further questions or concerns. I can not say enough about his professionalism, yet comforting way of putting you at ease. I was recommended to see him through a very good friend and I will definitely be passing along his name to anyone who needs a good pain specialist!
in Allentown, PA |
A six to eight week wait to get in, a bedside manner that leaves a lot to be desired and the arrogance of a pro-wrestler. Seek treatment elsewhere - he's not worth it! Years ago he was good but he has lost touch with reality in the last few years. Maybe it's the fact that OAA is losing ground in the market and he's an owner? No idea, but he's not what he used to be, which was professional!
in Allentown, PA |
Have seen Dr Corba several times and he is a great guy and has eased my pain level.
in Allentown, PA |
Dr Corba is an excellent medical professional and I have and will continue to recommend him to my affiliates. I have had a number of occasions to use his pain management facilities with excellent success . I have served for over 35 years on hospital trustee positions in the Philadelphia area and can recognize professional criteria and capabilities.
in Bethlehem, PA |
After more than a year of dealing with back pain, other specialists -- both locally and in Philadelphia -- and PT, I found Dr. Corba. His efforts and treatment bought me six (6) additional years before my back finally simply gave up and surgery became the only viable option. I will be forever grateful to him for his patience, understanding and help through a very painful and frustrating time for me.
in Allentown, PA |
How they allow this man to practice at OAA and continue to represent OAA is....INSANE! RUDE! Zero bedside manner, arrogant, and unprofessional. Asking a question is the same as asking him for a million dollars. He countless times acts as though ANY question is not only annoying but makes you feel like an idiot! If you question your own treatment he dismisses you and suggests getting another opinion. Do us all a favor Dr. Corba- either remember your supposed to be a Dr or RETIRE!
in Allentown PA |
I was impressed with how quickly he put me at ease. I would recommend him to my friends!
