Medical Specialist reviews in Newark

    She is very good. Both me and my wife like her. I think their office is not in a good location. Everything went okay the last time we were there. We just had to wait there for a long time. She shares the waiting room with other doctors. But, the experience with the doctor was good.

    Always friendly, attentive and respectful. They do not call is your Pap is normal. Having a history of abnormal Paps, I like to have a practice who phones me w/ my Pap result. I use them 4x/year for my Depo injections. This used to be a free service, but sometime in 2013 they started charging my regular co-pay for the injection. I never have any problem making or rescheduling an appt. I've seen a lot of gynecologists over the years; AAW is one of the best practices. B+

    I had to wait several months to get an appointment. My normal ob/gyn (Dr. McCullagh) was not available for 6-9 months, so they got me in with a NP (Dina Anderson). She's great! Thorough, considerate, patient. I also really like Dr. McCullagh's manner and quality of care, as well.
    I just tried to make my next appointment (no, it hasn't been three years; I was in grad school and used the university's services since I didn't have insurance the last time I needed a physical), but again the wait to see Dr. McCullagh is 9 months, so I booked again with Dina Anderson. I still have to wait 6 weeks to get in with her.
    I learned Dr. McCullagh is not only not taking new patients, but she is also focusing more on regular care and surgery, so her calendar remains booked.
    Every time I've been to AAW, I've had a long wait to get in. The shortest wait has been 45 minutes. For one of my appointments, I waited 90 minutes. I had to reschedule another meeting I was supposed to be at because the wait was so long. From now on, I take the earliest appointment they have available and I block out the next three-four hours so I don't have to reschedule something else.
    This clinic was so highly recommended to me I don't really want to change, but the length of wait to book an appointment and then in the office the day of the appointment are concerning enough I have seriously considered changing clinics.

    After open heart surgery I was referred to Dr. Paul Alfieri for follow-up
    care. I have seen Dr. Alfieri since 2006, he has been wonderful as far as the
    care he has given me. He is very methodical
    in everything he does and explains each procedure and what each prescription is
    for. The wait at his office is never longer than 5 to 10 minutes and his staff
    is very friendly and nice. If I need a refill I can call his office and have
    them call my Pharmacy and give them the prescription. I am very satisfied with
    the whole operation.

    I arrived on time, but the doctor was running late. I was told this right away, and they were nice enough about it, so that was not a problem for me. Once I was led into the exam room, I was told to take off all my clothes except for my underwear, and cover with a piece of what looked like Tyvek. After waiting like that for about 15 minutes,the doctor arrived, and we talked for a good while. The conversation was informative, and the doctor took time to explain the medication and how to take it. I learned from this that I was taking my medication wrong, which was very helpful. Still, I was not comfortable talking with him while naked. He did briefly examine me in the end, but I don't see that I had to be naked for that. Also, I mentioned a few symptoms I was having that he did not seem to have time to address, and wanted to leave for another visit. After the consultation, I dressed, walked out of the exam room and felt there was no clear conclusion of the visit. I asked a nurse in the hallway what to do next, and she told me I was done and could leave. I also checked with the woman at the front desk, and she told me the same. A week later I received a letter in the mail telling me that I left before they could have me sign some paperwork.

    They were fantastic. They are extremely helpful, they explained exactly what you're supposed to do, where you're supposed to go, they use documentations on your way out that says here's what we did, here's what you're supposed to do. All of the doctors are extremely knowledgeable and they do a pretty good job in coordinating across departments which is a lot of hospital so they wouldn't leave that to the individual patients.

    Dr. Kelly is responsible for giving my son a shot at a normal life. My son was allergic to every food I tried to feed him as a baby. No other doctor believed that my son needed the aggressive intervention that he did need until Dr. Kelly.
    On my first call to his office, Dr. Kelly answered the phone himself. I described my son's symptoms, expecting the same judgemental dismissal I had received for almost 3 years. Instead, I got someone who truly understood and knew what to do. He put my son on an amino acid based formula, which comprised 100% of his nutrition from age 3 until age 18, My son's ability to sleep, play, learn, and function socially hinged on his nutrional integrity. I owe Dr. Kelly a debt of gratitude.
    He has had nurses and nurse practitioners over the years whose professionlism I question, but Dr. Kelly has always been able to put things right.

    Dr. Cooksey is always responsive to my needs. He doesn't rush me when I have questions. He is personable and compassionate. I prefer integrative methods of health care and he practices a good balance of natural and pharmaceutical responses to my health needs.

    I really liked my practitioner, Patricia Heinemann--she was very helpful and had an excellent bedside manner. I would be happy to go back to her, except for one thing: the practice is associated with St. Francis Hospital, a Catholic hospital, and this apparently means that I can't get the care I need from this practice.
    I was told by the nurse (also generally nice and helpful) that as a result of Women to Women's association with St. Francis Hospital, if I had any problems with my IUD, they would be unable to help me. I am troubled by the fact that Catholic hospitals generally limit the type of care they are willing to provide women, but I certainly did not expect to find out that my selected method of contraception--one that is widely used the world over--would be rejected by my healthcare providers so fully that they not only wouldn't help me if I asked them to provide it, but they wouldn't serve me if I began to have any issues with it now, having already used it for three years.
    I was shocked and disheartened at this rejection, and sad to have found a provider whose manner was so lovely but whose practice prevented her from providing full and reasonable care to me as a patient. I won't be returning.

    The thing with Dr. Grubbs is that he is not accepting new patients but he will accept referrals from current patients.  I was distressed with the treatment I got at the hospital by the cardiologist I had, so I fired him and picked up a referral from a friend of mine to see Dr. Grubbs.  Dr. Grubbs is excellent.  When I checked in, he walked in and I noticed that he was like a tennis player, very intense, tall athletic and slim.  He was probably 55 or something and he said firstly, he was not accepting new patients but because I was referred from his current patient, he was seeing me, and secondly, he believed in minimal medication, thirdly he didn’t want to see me and that his job was to keep me out of there.  Of course, from there on it was great.  Everything he said I believed in.  He told me I didn’t need heart medication I was taking and that the only thing I was going to need from then on was my cholesterol and a baby aspirin.  I asked him about my diet and he told me that in his opinion, either one can restrict oneself and live for fifty years or one can live it a bit, once in a while and live for thirty years.  He told me as long as I was reasonable, me having sea crabs, once a year or twice a year was not a problem, he just didn’t want me to overdo it.  It was really superb.  It seemed like he cared and wanted to get the problem fixed.  He is somebody who presents himself as a superb technician who can do the job well, will do the job well, and is concerned about me, making sure that I do my job well too.  After my first consult, his nurse did call me back at home to check things over and now I am down to seeing him once a year for a stress test.  I am free to go in any time if I have a complaint.  He has a superb staff too.
