    Esse Health
    Esse Health DROPPED/FIRED my elderly mother after over 10 years because they--in particular Dr. Robert Byrne--were afraid to give her refills of her pain medication and she made the mistake of asking "why." She had been Dr. Byrne's patient for many years and at the beginning he was very good with her. She has bad diabetes, blind in one eye, heart disease and massive neuropathy (nerve) pain in her legs. For 10 years Dr. Robert Byrne gave her 60 pills of generic "Vicodin" per month for her nerve pain. The official name and dosage of the medication is: Hydrocodone/APAP 5/325mg. My mother refilled the 60-pill prescription only about once every 2-3 months....HARDLY a frequency of someone who is abusing the medication. In mid-2017, Dr. Byrne began to only give her 30 pills and would not respond when my mother asked why the change. By late 2017, they refused to refill her pain medication, along with another medication (non-narcotic) for her pain called "Neurotin". When she called the office to discuss the situation, she was only allowed to speak with a "nurse practitioner" who said that Dr. Byrne would contact her. Several days later, my mother received a letter in the mail from Dr. Robert Byrne which said she was being dropped as a patient--from both Dr. Byrne AND Esse Health in entirety--due to "disagreements between doctor and patient." Of course with the current US opiod problem, my mother's new doctor will not prescribe her anything more powerful than Ibuprofen while I watch her suffer in agony almost daily with her chronic neuropathy pain. I was also a patient of Dr. Byrne's at one time, but left on my own after he told me to "go to an urgent care facility" when I called the office (during the day, midweek) about a sudden hearing loss I had. That issue is covered under a separate review of Dr. Byrne. I would highly encourage senior citizens to avoid Dr. Byrne at all costs as he apparently likes to punish patients who question his judgement and is a prime example of how health care in the United States has gone downhill during the past 25 years.

    Bodavula MD LLC
    Dr. Bodavula was easy to talk with, explain what I had and told me how he was going to get rid me of the pain, and hopefully the cyst will not return. He also explain the pain that I will have for the next three day and how to handle the pain. His office staff were all welcoming and polite. I highly recommend Dr. Bodavula.

    Juan Perez MD
    He was very good and I liked him. There was a problem trying to get him to respond to a phone call with a question about prescription. It became a really serious issue with me. I was recommended to him through a friend.

    St Lukes Hospital
    It went well. I did not have to wait long for the tech to take me into the Sonocine room. The actual Sonocine took about 20 to 30 minutes. It's kind of messy because the tech has to use a lot of gel on the patient's skin so the probe can move around easily. The entire procedue was explained thoroughly. I felt comfortable with the tech. Once she finished the procedure she left the room to show the results to the doctor. I had to wait maybe another 30 minutes for the doctor to look at the results. It was great to get such quick results. The mammogram techs always tell me I have dense breast tissue and that limits a mammograms effectiveness. It's nice to know that there is another tool out there than can help. Maybe insurance will start covering it soon. Everyone I talked to that day was friendly from the receptionist to the registration person. It's a nice facility. And the tech was good about answering all of my questions.

    Doctors Clinical Group
    Everything is checked when you go in. Weight BP Pulse Blood Sugar Etc... When Dr. Poetz came in he was armed with everything to solve my issues. When you head out. Frieda makes certain that you have what you need.

    Brinkman, Dr. Robert A
    I made the appointment a few weeks in advance.  They were very punctual about getting me in.  Dr. Brinkman was easy to talk to and professional.  Forms for getting in the door were pretty painless (I guess it depends on your medical history :) ).  Followed up over the phone to go over my blood work and all that in a very understandable manner.Called once more for a little scare I was having and the staff was patient and gave good advice which put my mind at ease.

    McLaughlin, Dr. Sean
    He is very personable. He is good at following up, and always listens to his patients. He used to be very busy, and since he has added a second physician to the office, it is much easier to get an appointment. The situation in the office has definitly improved. The staff is very responsive, and are very well trained.

    Lytle, Dr. Matthew B.
    I always feel better when I bend. He has you do squats and he makes me do one dozen squats based on my ability after he works on me. I think he's good. He's never on time. Even though you wait, it's worth it. I've been seeing him for a year and a half, so I'm used to it by now. I would use his services again in the future.
