  • Since the x-rays showed no broken bones, Dr. Kann told me I was fine. When I tried to have further discussion about my pain, I was dismissed. When I tried to ask questions about how I could alleviate some of my pain, I was dismissed. Dr. Kann dismissed me over and over again. He was in a rush to be rid of me and not to have a conversation about Sports Medicine or Sports injury treatment. I was told that, instead of running so much, perhaps I should "grab some of my little girlfriends and take one of those little spinning classes." Dr. Kann did not address my problems, did not take me seriously as a patient or an athlete, and did not suggest any ways to prevent further injury.

  • Very cursory exam, didn't even ask me to undress.  Listened to my heart, took BP and looked in ears.  I told her I was going through menopause and having a bad time of it.
    The NP called me back and said my blood work showed my "thyroid was all messed up".  I questioned her and she said they would start me on Synthroid. 
    My own fault - I assumed she did a complete panel on my thyroid which they didn't.  FYI --  always make sure a full panel was done as thyroid as very tricky.  After about 10 days, I started having tremors, insomnia, racing thoughts.  I went to the Sythroid website and these were listed as lesser side effects.  I called and explained my issues.  The receptionist asked me if anything else (diet, meds, etc) changed other than the drugs and I told her no - everything was the same except for the synthroid.  She called back 3 hours later and asked again if I was taking anything new and I told her no.  She called back at the end of the day and asked if my diet changed.  I said I was tired of playing telephone and I wanted to talk to the doctor or NP directly.  She said everyone was gone and I had to wait until the next day.
    When I called the next day she AGAIN asked if I was taking anything new or if my diet changed.  She said that my side effects weren't normal.  I told her they are listed on the website - although they aren't among the most frequent, they were listed as less frequent.  She told "don't believe everything you read on line".  I told her I would suspect the drug company, WebMD,UPMC, Mayo Clinic would know and I checked them all. She called back and said the NP said it was my menopause and call my gynecologist.
    I did get upset and told her I was not happy at all and I was going to stop taking the meds. She said that's on you not us.
    I did call my gynecologist and spoke to the nurse.  She knew exact what I was talking about and said she would call them.  That is when I found out (from my gyne's nurse) they didn't do a full panel and I had a slightly elevated TSH level.  She talked to my gyne who recommended I see a endocrinologist (I had to wait 30 days to get the synthroid out of my system). 
    The NP called me back and said she did nothing to hurt me.  I was crying and very upset due to the meds and how I was treated.  She then said she felt bad and asked me if I needed Xanax.  She asked me to come in to get blood drawn to double check and I said why -- you'll get false readings with the drug in my system.  I told her I would not be back at all.
    I did see the endocrinologist and had normal readings -- just a slightly elevated TSH which is very common in menopausal women and can fluctuate on a daily basis.
    Bottom line -- make sure you ask question, don't take a drug without doing some research and discuss alternative treatments.

  • The staff is VERY friendly and take good care of you. The office is a nice, open space with plenty of windows and decent music playing in the background. For physical therapy, you stop at the desk and sign in and go right back and start working out, so no waiting. I have had several of the staff and they were all very helpful. Alicia was particularly helpful and gentle.
    All in all, this experience has been VERY difficult. Shoulder surgery SUCKS. However, the staff here has made it easier and they have taken good care of me.
    - Kevin S.
  • He is very easy going. He's very knowledgeable on different things. I give him a symptom and he knows exactly what it could be. I don't wait more than 10-15 minutes in the waiting room and maybe 10 minutes or less in the exam room to be seen.

  • I have used this particular location for almost a year. The new director, Becky, is phenomenal! The price is outrageous though. I pay $96.00/day for infant care (under the age of 18 months). I checked the price of KinderCare in Plum, PA and there was a $30-$40 difference. Not to mention that I also received a letter and new contract stating that the price would increase by $4.00 in the Fall. I assume that the rates are market driven, and those that live closer to the wealthier suburbs pay more. It could also be due to the various extracurricular programs that are offered, but you pay a separate price for additional programs. I love the center, but it would be nice to have more consistency with pricing. Otherwise, it could give the wrong impression and message. The service that I am privy to is hopefully the same service that is provided by ALL KinderCare Centers.
    **NOTE: If you review their website you will notice that pricing information is NOT available. Maybe they should use a "prices may vary" notation.
    Absolutely love the center, but I hate the price. Then again, I guess it depends on the price you are willing to pay for quality child care. As stated previously, it's all about the market rate.

  • I broke a foot bone 18 months ago which was not visible on an xray and went untreated by a walk in clinic with the exception of a special shoe for sprains. I went to a different orthopedic doctor for a follow up visit when it wasn't healing and, again, nothing showed on an xray and he gave me a walking boot. After third visit, he said it was just muscles that needed to heal. After a few months of constant pain, I went to Dr. Saar for a second opinion and he agreed I shouldn't be having pain and ordered an MRI. As I suspected all along (having broken bones in my ankle 3 times before), I had a fracture in a very small bone that was not healing. Dr. Saar had me in the boot again for 6 or 8 more weeks. Unfortunately, I now have arthritis which set in due to the months the fracture went undiscovered. I just wish I had seen Dr. Saar the first time since he listened to me and investigated my instincts instead of dismissing my complaints. So yes, I recommend Dr. Saar.

  • It was fine. It did feel a bit rushed/quick - I think because he knew immediately what was wrong and the severity of the injury and that surgery would not be needed. I was outfitted with a walking boot on the spot, given a severe ankle sprain grade II diagnosis, and a script for physical therapy. That script did not have any specifics for the therapists, just the diagnosis.The experience overall was fine, just felt a bit rushed when actually with the doctor. The physician assistant who came in before the doctor actually spent more time with me and asked more questions.

  • Very pleasant doctor. He answered all my questions and gave me a timeline for recovery. My surgery was uneventful and my recovery was normal. My scar is small and will soon be invisible. He is a skilled and wonderful doctor. His PA's and office staff are also caring and pleasant.
    The only negative with the practice is the and quot;central call in number.and quot; The central number handles six offices and they do not return calls on a timely basis. Tri Rivers needs a better system to contact the doctors.
    - Sharon T.
  • I would recommend Tri-Rivers for physical therapy I have gone to them for three different things. I can honestly say that they are good, they are really good. They are on time, their facility is wonderful, their equipment is wonderful and their therapists are wonderful. Their attitude makes you feel very important. The treatment works.....I'm walking! I will continue to use the services of this facility in the future for my physical therapy.
    - Donna S.
  • Was pressured into given a credit card but was told that I will be contacted before taking out funds out of my account. This did not happen and she would not issue credit. Went well at first until she did this and got a little hateful with us. For the little communication you receive, she is very expensive and sometimes communicating my email she says one thing in one email and another thing in another email. She is not very competent.
