November 15, 2016

was my first time there and thought the care provider was good.

November 11, 2016

The staff was very courteous and the doctors assistant was very thorough in my assessment and answered any questions I had. The doctor came in, seemed hurried, was only in the room for about 2 minutes. He did ask if I had any questions and I told him no because again he seemed as though he was in to much of a hurry to really get to know me. This was my first visit to the office. I was referred by my PCP Dr. Sella.

November 04, 2016

Excellent experience, with everyone involved.

November 01, 2016

I felt the Dr could have spent some time with me and not with the ontarge he had with him.

November 01, 2016

Dr. came in, never sat or explained the results of my MRI or had me explain my problem or what I should do about it. Left and had his assistant give me a script for physical therapy. He had no concern of why I was there. Never gave me results or solutions to this problem.

October 27, 2016

this was my first visit andI was very impressed with all aspects of visit. Dr. was very positive about my concern and treatment.

October 20, 2016

The Dr. came in and i spent maybe 1 minute with him. my MRI was on the computer from last year and he never looked at it. he made me squeeze his fingers and then told me to go to PT for 4-6 weeks and that was it.
