  • 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.

Dr. Byrne is a perfect example of why healthcare in this country has declined so badly in the past 25 years.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • I have been pleased with the service I have received at Genesis OBGYN. Genesis was the third OB that I visited in the area and have been happy with the care received. I have been seeing Dr. Radley for approximately 4 years and will continue in the future.

  • Dr. Minkin confirmed the diagnosis by my primary care physician of a bilateral inguinal hernia and clearly outlined the options for surgical repair, discussing the plusses / minuses of each, probabilities of success and recurrence, and recovery times. Chose a laproscopic surgical repair, performed at Des Peres Hospital. Procedure went very well, back to work in a couple of days. On follow up visits, he confirmed the repair was healing well and provided guidance for resuming my workout routine. Overall, a very good experience.

  • Dr. Porntip is a very caring physician. I don't even know where to begin, she is just the best. She is always on top of everything. If I need to stop in a see her for a few minutes, she will always take the time to sit and talk with me. She does not limit herself to in and out visits. I give Dr. Porntip all A's.
