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.

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!
