Kingston, PA |
Dr. Krywick has always been polite and attentive. Answering questions with patience and knowledge. I've never felt rushed in his prescience.
in Wilkes Barre, PA |
The doctor gave me the impression that he had better things to do. Cold, aloof demeanor. Rushed. He wasn't outright rude, but he certainly was not kind. I felt like he looked down on me the entire four minutes he spent with me. I left feeling very confused as if I'd done something wrong.
