The five-star rating is for Dr. Longton and Brooke. The care this practice has provided me over the past 8 years is second to none. I require two to three lumbar injections per year and anyone with severe back pain knows just how important it is to have a provider who you can trust and who is qualified. I honestly can't imagine anyone better than Dr. Longton. Unfortunately the office gets a one-star rating. A recent job change resulted in a change in insurance on my part. Despite three or four phone calls with both my new insurance company and PMC who assured me they were in-network with my new plan, I was informed only after receiving service that they had made a "mistake." I painstakingly researched all my medical providers and this one was absolutely the most important to me (to keep.) Very, very disappointed at the lack of research and professionalism on the part of the office staff. A STARK contrast from the actual medical care.

Always excellent with Dr. Longton. Not always the best with his front office staff and the calling system.
