Medical Specialist reviews in Northampton

    Osiecki, Dr. Stephanie T.
    I have been seeing the doctor for about 4 years. She takes her time with her patients and is very calm. She is also very thorough and she has a good office staff. The office staff is very timely. You walk in and you are taken right away. I have never had a problem scheduling an appointment with the doctor.

    Baystate Midwifery Associates
    Very happy with this practice.  I was impressed with how quickly they were able to bring me in for my initial visit. From prior experience, I had been used to a 4-6 week wait to get in for a new patient visit with any provider. Baystate Midwifery was able to schedule me just a week or so after I called to schedule. The facility itself is very nice, newly renovated.  The staff that greeted me was friendly, and my wait was very minimal (15 mins or less). I saw Jain, who was very attentive and a good listener. She was able to answer all of my questions, and was obviously very competent. I had a couple of follow-up interactions with the clinical staff (lab results), who were very knowledgeable and conscientious about following-up on my questions and concerns.

    Northampton Family Practice
    I met with Christina Collins, NP, who works under John Tsongalis, MD. She spent a lot of time listening to me, which was great. That is until it was time to write prescriptions. She and her supervisor, although allowed by law to prescribe, decided that they did not and quot;feel comfortableand quot; with prescribing a very low dose of a narcotic I have been taking for about 5 years. As a paraplegic I experience a lot of pain which is managed by a and quot;cocktailand quot; of drugs. This cocktail has been evolving over the last 16 years and my previous doctors and I felt comfortable about the reduction of pain with this medication. I felt like a skid row addict from the way she was talking to me. I felt horrible and did not understand that treatment. I came home crying butt thank God my son was there to help me. She and her supervisor decided to refer me to a pain management physician, a Dr. X. By the time I got to the reception for the referral, a woman came out and told the receptionist that no I could not be referred to Dr. X. She said it in such a way that it was obvious she wanted to say more but did not want me to hear it.
    In addition, the reception staff is not professional, and was confused. I understand that laughter is needed but the whole reception staff (behind the glass) behaved like this was a big party.
    This was a horrible demeaning experience, and would not recommend this practice for other paraplegics or people who need to keep pain at bay.

    Caughlin, Dr. James P.
    Dr. Caughlin is an excellent internal medicine physician. I found him randomly after moving to town last summer and have been delighted with the results. He asks thoughtful and probing questions, makes sure that I understand my treatment options (and when I asked him how a medicine actually works, he took the time to explain the physiological effects) and always asks if there is more, more problems, more issues, more comments or concerns. I mentioned on our first visit that I was concerned about some aspects of my diet (I am a vegetarian and a runner and was concerned about not enough protein). Dr. Caughlin, rather than just giving me a stock answer asked several questions and *then* spent time talking about whether or not it was okay for me to stay a vegetarian.
    The impression that I got each time I've gone in for an appointment is that he really does care about his patients total health and well-being. He has never been abrupt or given the impression of just needing to get through the appointment, and happily, had some good ideas for a treatment change for me when my previous medication stopped being effective and was thorough about making sure a new medicine was appropriate, *without* a bevy of unnecessary tests (there were some to be sure, but they were 'on point' and ones I have come to expect with my condition). His nurses are friendly and the office is well kept, though a little cold and sterile (I guess it is an examination room, but still). I haven't been kept waiting during any visit and my time with the doctor is never 'too short'.
    All in all, I am very pleased with the care I receive from Dr. Caughlin and unreservedly recommend him to someone looking for an internal medicine physician.

    Womancare Ob./Gyn.
    Most of medical information is private due to the Confidentiality Law but I will say he is an excellent physicial and addresses any problems you may be concerned about most times is able to solve them and make you feel better. If he doesn't have the answer he will research the problem and get the answer for the patient. He is compasionate to your needs and give you the time you need during your appointment; he doesn't rush you from your visit. I have never had a bad experience with Dr. Ed Paton.

    Hampshire Gastroenterology Assn.
    Dr. Agrawal is terrific. She is thorough, friendly, and very reassuring. She explained her thoughts on what was going on and came up with a comprehensive action plan.
    It's sometimes hard to find good specialists in the valley. I feel very lucky to have stumbled upon Dr. Agrawal. I feel confident about the care I have received from her.

    Advance Therapeutics
    I had neck stiffness for about a decade - annoying but not a big issue. During the summer I developed extreme pain in my right shoulder. My physician said the shoulder pain was likely related to the neck stiffness and that computer work and poor posture were putting me at risk of developing a chronic bulging cervical disk. After reducing the inflammation and pain with medication and bed rest for a couple of weeks, I started physical therapy (PT). I had been to other PT's for neck stiffness and other injuries in the past and have been thoroughly unimpressed with the attentiveness of therapists, techniques offered (beyond a couple of stretches, which can be effective, but don't require periodic visits to therapist), and overall results. I have also tried chiropracty, with mixed short-term results, but doesn't address underlying issues that caused pain.
    With this new level of pain and injury I asked around and received 2 very strong recommendations for Bob Myers at Advanced Therapeutics, and after seeing him for a series of sessions, I have to agree! Although he makes the sessions enjoyable, he is obviously very serious about his work, knowledgeable on a wide-range of issues/approaches, and very attentive and present during each session. In addition to effectively explaining the underlying issues, and providing a set of effective exercises/stretches to address them, Bob is an amazing and intuitive hands-on body worker. I often walked out of my sessions feeling like his adjustments had facilitated a major shift in my body that set up and allowed additional healing.
    I have two very minor criticisms (reflected in the and quot;Band quot; grades in the reviewand quot;)...first is his availability, but given that this is a result of his effectiveness, not really a criticism, just an inconvenience. Since I was not able to always schedule with Bob, I ended scheduling about 1/3 of my sessions with another therapist (Shannon). Although I was initially frustrated about this, since Bob had come so highly recommended, I think it ended up being a good thing. They have different strengths, perspectives and approaches, and I learned a lot from Shannon that I might not have understood as deeply if I'd just seen Bob.
    My second criticism is that Bob's approach sometimes seems a bit scattered. For example, he would mention that we should address a particular issue, or cover a particular topic in a future session, but then it wouldn't necessarily happen until he would start talking about the issue/topic as if we'd already covered it when we hadn't yet. Given that mine was a long-term injury with numerous contributing factors, and I also asked him about related issues that weren't central to the injury, there was a lot of ground to cover in a lot of different areas, so it's understandable that our sessions were scattered, but a more systematic approach may have helped make sure everything was being covered in an effective way. Of course, since you've read all this, you can just remind him about topics he mentioned from previous sessions.
    Overall, my experience with Bob and Shannon was very strong, and has given me a lot of hope for making lifelong improvements in body health.

    Hall, Dr. Andrew F.
    I love Dr. Hall. I love the whole practice. I don't know what I will do if he ever retires. I would give that practice and Dr. Hall an A+ for sure. He is very attentive to the individual. He is never in a rush and that office is always accessible.

    Hampshire Orthopedic/Sprt Medcn
    I saw Dr K. for a worker's comp related issue. I saw her a few times without any satisfactory answer to my problem. I was in much pain and I told her I needed a "note" to not go to work. But she would only say that I could not: bend, twist or lift. These were exactly the things my job entailed. She gave me what I consider a blind shot of cortisone into the area of pain (which later I noticed caused a spot on my injured area that was cratered and depleted of fatty tissue). The shot did no good. When I went back to her she said: I don't know what to do for you. And she would not give me a note for my workplace concerning the pain I experienced from working.I was really surprised that she "didn't know what to do for me" as my injury is not that unusual. I was very disappointed in this treatment with her and felt my time was wasted. I decided to see a different provider.

    Osiecki, Dr. Stephanie T.
    She is wonderful. She takes plenty of time with you and is very thorough in her tests and doesn't overprescribe. She's very patient and a good listener. Her office staff is marvelous. If it is an emergency you don't have to wait.
