At Dominic, Mark Valverde, MD, Jackson, MS
Mark Valverde, former Psychiatrist at St Domic hospital in Jackson, MS will not 1. Look his patients in the eyes or call them by name, even when the patient asks that he do so. When the patient was in the inpatient area of the hospital, the nurses were unable to reach Dr Valverde by phone or beepers when he was needed for emergencies. The staff appeared to be scared of him. He would not reply when a patient was in distress. Dr Valverde is a psychiatrist. Psychiatrists are supposed to look at their patients in the eye and offer understanding. He was unable to connect with his patients. It was a shame he was chosen to work with the most vulnerable of patients. I left with the lowest opinion of his communication skills, his lack of compassion and he had an air of being better than others. His choice to not respond to calls from staff calls was malpractice. Dr Valverde would not look the patients in the eyes. It may behoove him to work in a lab or do research. Psychiatry must encompass compassion. Dr Valverde had no compassion.

Michael Romberg, MD, 19657 S La Grange Road, Mokena, IL, 60448
Dr. Romberg was my second opinion. The first surgeon wanted to immediately do surgery. I was told by a friend of mine to go see Dr. Romberg and my prayers were answered. He is very knowlegable and he took the time to explain things to me. I knew immediately that this guy would do me right! He made me feel better about making my decision. I was scared at first going into his clinic but his staff will make you feel immediately at home (very friendly Diana, Daniel -- Tina his nurse) and treated me with respect ! I prayed for this doctor and I thank God that this doctor came into my life! Dr. Romberg has helped me get the care I so needed and I am recovering well from surgery. I hope everyone reads this because this doctor does good! He is a humble man and he does his patients good! Shante Mark

Barry P Boden, 205500 Seneca Meadow Pkwy, Germantown, MD
If I could give ten (10) stars to Doctor Barry Boden I would have gladly do so. I have Called several Orthopedic Doctors due to crucial pain on my neck back and right shoulder and arm to get an emergency appointment with no success I called Doctors Boben's office at 20500 Seneca Meadows Pkwy Germantown Maryland a soft spoken stuff member placed me in a brief hold and was able to get me in to see Doctor Boden. The pain was unbearable. I was taken to his office and was greeted by a wonderful nurse that took me to the ex-ray room , a warm and well mannered ex-ray technician took ex-rays and walked me to the examination room. In a few minutes Doctor Boden came in looked though my medical history in detail examined me and listen very patiently to my complains. The Doctor explained the reason of my pain and the symptoms answered every question I had. His unlimited medical experience and diagnosis stunned me. He gave me a couple of shots comfort me with his kind words and scheduled me for a follow up in a week, he asked me to call him if the pain continued , after making sure that all my questions were answered he ***ed me out. His bedside manners and concern about my health condition had stunned me. I have seen a lot of Doctors in the past fifty years but I have never experienced this genuine concern and good care that I have received from this "Miracle" Doctor and his stuff. Now I am pain free and blessed with a great Doctor. I recommend Doctor Boden and his staff very highly to any one that is seeking for a great Orthopedic Doctor. I like to thank the Doctor and his staff. Alexandra Angelakis

Deborah White, Saint Joseph, MO
I have been trying to figure out my diabetes for years. At first, I believed she was a great doctor, but as I'm wanting different options, I'm starting to doubt her. What she says in person versus what she writes in clinical notes don't match. She doesn't accurately portray my desires and concerns in her notes either, which makes me seem like a stupid, uneducated patient. She writes that she suggested a treatment but never mentioned said treatment to me verbally. She failed to list reasons for requesting medication changes. It feels like a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde situation. I've considered recording conversations so that future doctors will know the truth versus what's in my records. I have messaged her and her supervising MD regarding my concerns. If they are addressed properly, I will gladly change my rating and review. If not, I will be finding a new primary care doctor for both my daughter and I.

Dr. M Abraham, 1220 Dewey Ave., Wauwatosa, WI
After 7 years of care, my daughter's psychiatrist retired. We had the misfortune of selecting Dr. M. Abraham at Aurora Behavioral. She admitted to NOT HAVING THE TIME TO READ HER FILE BEFORE OUR VISIT! She then accused me of regularly abusing my child!! She put her in the hospital to "separate" us! (Maybe Trump is her hero?) While in the waiting room, a public location, she came in & stated I should expect a visit from CPS. Fortunately, the MD. in the hospital expressed it is clear there is NO abuse!!!!

Michael Lim, Baltimore, MD
Dr. Michael Lim, neurosurgeon at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, MD operated on my benign meningioma in January 2012. It was at the base of my brain near the brain stem pressing on my trigeminal nerve resulting in excruciating facial pain. I was allergic to all the successive trials of drugs given and a craniotomy and not cyberknife was necessary to resolve it. I trusted Dr. Lim's expertise and surgical skill for the difficult operation. I am five years out now and now 69 years old. I am an active female who plays pickleball (like tennis) almost daily.

Dr. Lovelyn Bialose, 9831 Greenbelt Road, Lanham, MD, 20706
I found that Dr. Bialose was extremely knowledgeable and resourceful. I was very anxious about the many unknowns prior to my appointment, but I was put at ease by her calm demeanor and polite bedside manner. I appreciated that she offered me a telehealth visit even as a first time patient because we were in the middle of the global covid19 pandemic. She was very patient with my inquiries and helped me navigate the processes and paperwork related to my health changes. I would absolutely recommend her to my family and friends.

Megan Brundrett, OH
Megan Brundrett MD, spread vicious lies about me. She is the Medical Lead at South High Primary Care, the primary outpatient training location for the Internal Medicine-Pediatrics residency program. Megan Brundrett participated in false negative gossip about me at her medical center. She talked to Nathan Richards MD and Susan Li MD about me. She made no attempt to verify the gossip with me. I made many attempts to contact her by mail, email and phone to try to explain my side of the story. She refused to hear me. She refused to hear my side of the lies that Dr. Susan Li and Dr Nathan Richards were spreading about me. She made getting good medical care at South High Primary Care impossible. She listened to bad gossip, but would not hear the truth from me at all. Doctors are only to consult each other about medical issues, not office gossip.

Maahir Haque, MD, 410 Celebration Place, Suite 106, Celebration, FL, 34747
Dr. Maahir Haque at Celebration Orthopaedic and Sports Injury is a rare find. After five years and several surgeries elsewhere, Dr. Haque took on my complicated case and actually cured my pain! He listened carefully to me, answered all of my questions and put me at ease from the start. His expertise and skill in minimally invasive back surgery are a Godsend because I woke up from surgery and literally, the pain was gone. I couldn’t believe it, but I’ve never felt better. His Physician Assistant, Amere, was a delight to work with and answered any additional questions or concerns. His Nurse, sweet “Ari” (Arrixarell,) was on top of everything and kept me informed each step of the way. Dr. Haque and his team are so professional and personable, I honestly felt like their only patient and I would highly recommend them and Celebration Ortho. to anyone who needs surgery for back and related pain. They offer the real solution and my family and I are truly grateful.
Dr. Michael Sullivan, Gaylord, MI
Very sad experience. Dr. Sullivan performed a root canal on my number 13 molar. The root canals of this tooth are very narrow and extended. I warned the Dr. that I had a traumatic experience with elongated tooth roots which for teeth being extracted both as an adolescent and as a young serviceman in the Navy. Both of those times the dentists had a rough time with the teeth. The procedures lasted over 4 hours for the tooth when I was a child, and two visits over 3 hours each when I was in the Navy. Dr. Sullivan assured me that he was capable, and that his skill was superior. I believed him. After his first attempt at root canals on this tooth, Dr. Sullivan sent me home telling me that there wasn’t enough time that day to finish the procedure. Mind you I’m under the influence of sedation at this time. I told Dr. Sullivan that I would rather have the tooth pulled than go through another 3 hours in the chair. Amazingly I believed him again when he told me the reason he couldn’t finish was because of scheduling. He also said that he wanted to prove to his dental assistants he could finish the job! Being as high as I was on the anesthesia I made the poor judgement call to return. Two days went by with excruciating pain in my upper jaw. I was having to take Tylenol and Advil to relieve the discomfort. I went back to Sullivan’s office, asked AGAIN if it would be better to just extract the tooth, and he said it was his opinion he could save it, and this time he could finish the job and apply the cap. So I strapped on his gas mask and knocked myself stupid only to have the “Doctor” root around, stretch my jaw and break off half of what was left of the tooth. When I came to I distinctly remembered the snap, the dental assistant saying “Oh God!”, and the good Dr. scurrying away into another operatory. What was I told this time? Of course that I’d have to come back since it was the tooth’s fault it was so damaged that it cracked, and now he had to make a new cap with his machine. Stoned on the good Dr.’s laughing gas I told him “that’s okay, mistakes happen”. What an idiot I was. The laughing gas wore off and the Tylenol Advil routine lasted a week. I went back to Beacon Dental Center, this time for the last time, to finally get the remnants of my tooth capped. This time he squirted the glue in to fill the root canals, fixed the cap on the tooth, and away I went. Fast forward 5 years and I’m in the chair of a very competent dentist. The dentist asks if I’m in any pain and I mention the constant pain I’ve had on my left sinus area. I’ve felt this pain for three years. I’m shown the current X-ray of the area and the Dentist tells me that it’s not normal. The capped tooth is great work (machine made, remember) but there is stuff in the canals of Number 13 tooth that extend into the sinus. After visits to an Ear Nose Throat MD, Oral Surgeon and Endodontist specialists, I’m scheduled to have an operation to remove the so-called saved tooth, and resultant fistula created by the extensive overfilling of the Number 13 root canals with guttapurcha, the latex based root canal filling material. Predictably I could sue and win to recover the costs of these procedures, but the good Doctor has closed his practice, and is now enrolled in a school in Detroit. The lawyer I consulted doesn’t see that my case is strong enough to show the pain I’ve been living through since I trusted Dr. Sullivan. Of course there are risks to root canals. I accepted the possibility of a dry socket, and possible infection, but was re-assured by Sullivan that he’s done thousands of these procedures with no bad outcomes. General dentists can perform root canal procedures along with other dental procedures, but often they refer patients needing endodontic treatment to a specialized practice, who works in collaboration with your dentist. An endodontist is a dentist who specializes in saving teeth. Dr. Sullivan should have not touched that tooth after I warned him of the history of my other root issues, and certainly after he saw the roots narrowness and length.
Hayley Miller, Missoula, MT
Primum non Nocere? Really? I tried three times to get in to see this physician, Hayley Miller, MD. I have never met her to date! In my first visit, she made me wait over an hour... and I left. My second visit, I had to cancel because I was stuck in a business meeting. I booked another meeting. I live 65 miles from the Community Medical Center Clinic at the north end of Missoula.... hour trek. I showed up, filled out all of the extensive first visit paperwork (which was very good, btw) and I was very enthusiastic to see her. I waited 30 minutes. The "nurse" greeted me and we sat in the patient room. Next the nurse (nursing assistant, not a nurse), handed me a certified letter which she claimed they tried to send me. In decades here I have never had "mail delivery problems." The letter stated that because of my "missed" two visits, Dr. Miller would reluctantly care for me for 30 days but not further. I left. This was intentionally mean. I do not recommend this Clinic or this doctor. I hope you have better luck. I am a doctor and I know how I should have been treated. This was sadistic and wrong. This conduct is emblematic with what is wrong in modern medicine. The caring stops at the till and impersonal droids bereft in any human values have taken over.

Shout out to Dr. Shen MD I was referred to him after 2yrs. of Pain Management& NO Results. The Dr. found my problem , I scheduled Surgery, I received excellent services I was well taken care of , the Dr. explained everything to me so I understood the procedure to be done. The Dr. & stall were so professional, I felt like I was family. Where do you get a physician call you at home to ask how things are going, and to call him if there are any problems. I will be forever greatfull to Dr. Shen, I can now walk without pain and enjoy life. Again Dr. Shen thenk you for everything and your staff as well. God Bless

Dr Robert LaVille, 95 Mathews Blvd., Lafayette, LA
I am dying because of Dr. LaVille. I saw this man for twelve years. I never missed an apt. for anything. About four years ago I questioned a growth on my check. He dismissed it as me chewing on my cheek in my sleep and offered to make me a set of night guards. I told him that he made me a pair two years ago. Then he said, well maybe your crowns need contouring. On my last visit to his office, I asked him to look at the growth on my cheak. He said,"that is nothing to worry about." One month Later, I was told at MD Anderson Cancer Center, that I had about a year to live and that it would be a hard death. I chose to do life extension Chemo and radiation at the same time to try and save my life. Now I'm in palliative care therapy. Keeping me comfortable until I dye. Many other doctors who treated me after doctor LaVille were shocked at his gross negligence to biopsy such a large tumor. I would not ever recommend this man who practices dentistry. I wouldn't even refer to him as a doctor.

Michael Lim, Baltimore, MD
Dr. Michael Lim operated on a benign meningioma near my brain stem in Jan 2012. I wrote before, but hit the wrong key and it was posted prematurely. I did much research and Dr. Lim answered my myriad of questions before and after surgery. A PHd nurse friend of mine recommended him to me. I am located in Philadelphia, PA and made the decision to go to Baltimore for the surgery. I no longer have electric facial pain. I am a 69 year old female and am active in sports. The operation was 6 hrs in a difficult location at the base of my brain. I could have lost my vision, hearing, balance, and had facial droop and speech problems. I did not. I am deeply grateful to Dr. Lim for saving my life. One other thing--Dr. Lim operates on Tuesdays; the schedule was full for many weeks. He took my case and operated on a 24 hour notice when the operating room was available on a Friday. He had a busy work week, surgeries on his regular operating day, and continued to help me by operating again at the end of a week. There couldn't have been a more positive outcome. Thank you!

D. Carlson, 13871 Elk Run Drive, West Burlington, IA
I went in for pain in the abdomen and difficulty breathing. My general MD was not available, so I was referred to Dr. D. Carlson at the Great River Family Practice Center in West Burlington, IA. I was asked and responded 3 times to questions regading my allergies. Despite that, I was given a shot and a medication order to be filled at the pharmacy. When I went to the pharmacy to get the medication order filled, I was told "it was not the right medication for me." They would have to call the doctor for another medication. That could only mean, I was allergic to the medication ordered. That is a flagrant disregard for a patient's safety.

Brenda Scribner MD, Easton, MD
With a combination of medications and therpy she has made my life better. I no longer have panic attacks, my anxiety is under control, and I can sleep at night. She was able to provide results within weeks. With continued care my life gets better and better. Dr. Scribner: treated me with compassion, helped identify coping skills, was always on time, responded quickly to concerns, provided excellent assesment of my medical needs. I recommend anyone who is not getting results with their current provider, or doesn't feel they being treated with dignity- they consider seeing her. You don't have to live life suffering or in shame. She really does help people.

Dr. Ronald B Schlotfeldt, MD, 501 Washington, San Diego, CA, 92103
I was getting screened by the nurse. She asked about my medical history along with the standard questions, have I been exposed to Covid, etc. I told her I had Covid at the end of Nov. She then asked what brought me in today. I told her but she kindly interrupted and said, "you just need a referral, correct." I said yes. I said, I'd also like some blood work done while I'm here, nothing of concern just might as well get a physical while I'm here. I also mentioned my throat was irritating me but I also get chronic tonsillitis at least once a year. I told her it wasn't anything I was really concerned about, but hopefully I could talk to the doc and possibly get a z pack. She said, ok let me go talk to the Doctor. He immediately came in, and read me my rights so to speak. I was actually fearful when he stepped foot in the room. His look he gave me was petrifying. I was appalled at his dismissive, assumptious meanness towards me. He right away said, "why would you ever come into this office with Covid symptoms." I said, I don't have Covid symptoms, what are you talking about. He said you have a sore throat and how dare you come into this office when you're sick. He said, what are you even in here for in the first place? I said, I came in here for a referral and thought it was a good idea to get a physical and mentioned my throat hurt. I said I had Covid the end of November and there's a 90 day period where you are free from reinfection. He was so mean. Not to mention all this took place in front of my five year old daughter. Even my daughter was scared. I said, I know it's not Covid its just a sore throat and you can't automatically just because my throat hurts, it's Covid. He said, well what else could it be then. I was shocked. I said maybe it tonsillitis. Then he said, how would you even get that then. I said, I don't know, germs... It was just back n forth banter. He then came back in a hazmat suit and said it was in my best interest to get Covid swab and Strep throat swab. He came back in 10 min later and cleared me. It was the most pointless waste of time/energy appointment with someone who has zero compassion for anyone and who made me feel like I was this disgusting walking germ in front of my daughter. Never want to see his face again!!!!!
