Patient Comments (2)
in Wilkes-Barre,PA |
Dr. Bishwal has to be the most incompetent medical "professional" I've been around. He rarely does a physical exam of the problem areas no matter how you describe your pain. It seems as though the good doctor is swayed by a particular drug company as he continuously tries to force my wife into taking something that very clearly isn't working any longer. He ignores what you say and is painfully indifferent to any suggestion that isn't his own. My wife will soon be out of his "care" thankfully.

He obviously did not look at my history or listen to my statement about my pain. My pain is not where he insisted that it is. The area of pain is what he based his diagnosis on. I would like the possibility of recommending him to be very poor, not poor.
