I'm very happy that they are accepting new patients. I have been looking for a doctor for months now. The only complaint I have is the male that answers the phone for appointments is very rude.

There are much better Doctors out there. He doesn't listen and I was never called back about diagnostic testing appointments. I switched Doctors and now I'm finally getting some place.

while you may have to wait a little longer in these doctors waiting room it's worth it. These doctors (especially Dr. Rogan) have a wonderful bedside manner & really care- which is harder & harder to find in doctors these days. I would highly recommend any doctors in this group to anyone. I truly think they're a step above the rest! These doctors truly go out of their way to make sure their patients are receiving the best possible care! When I've been really sick the office finds a way to sneak you in to see your doctor. The doctors, PA's, CRNP's, & nurses are very intelligent & go out of their way to make sure that something that they recommend or prescribe is really helping to make you better. I frequently have a healthcare professional that I saw at an appointment when I was sick call me or email me to follow-up & make sure I'm getting & if not make recommendations or have me come back into the office that day to be re-evaluated so changes can be made.

There's always a long wait time, a very busy place for its size, too small! Stuffy in there too. I called and made an appointment last week for 8am, needed to be for 8am for several personal reasons, the male who made the appointment assured me it was at 8:20 am, when I got there at 8:15 my appointment sheet said my appointment was for 9:45!!!! All the front desk did was say that the appointment was made for 9:45, the audacity! No consequences were provided to the person who made the appointment. If you decide to go to this place make sure that the appointment times are correct, call back and speak to someone else, (not the male scheduler) to confirm it. You'll still wait a while because that's how it is over there, they need a larger building. I'd recommend going to the Geisinger in Mt Pocono, I have a friend who goes there who has never had any issues and doesn't ever have to wait for long. In terms of the level of care, it's pretty good, but nothing you can't get anywhere else without having to wait forever or having incorrectly scheduled appointments!

My family believes this doctor performed major surgery on our 90 year old mother, who had already been diagnosed with 4th stage cancer and had not been given long to live. The surgery completely destroyed her quality of life, while prolonging her life, ultimatly to reach the same end. This doctor received $28,500 from Medicare for this surgery, and never had a follow-up visit with his patient when she was released from the hospital. He even failed to remove her sutures, until they became infected, and then it took 3 days to get him to do a 5 minute procedure. We believe Dr. Bannon's decision to perform this surgery was unethical, immoral and greedy. It has caused our mother prolonged suffering and the loss of her life's savings.
Tips & Advices
An osteopathic physician practices a comprehensive form of medicine that takes a holistic approach to a person's health. Instead of specializing in one system or set of organs, an osteopathic specialist focuses on the health of the total body. This includes evaluating environmental factors that affect a person's well-being.
Many family doctors deliver babies, especially in rural areas without a nearby OB/GYN. However, most family doctors only deliver for low-risk pregnancies and do not perform cesarean sections.
Family nurse practitioners are highly educated nurses able to provide medical care individually or with the assistance of another professional. Family nurse practitioners obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and then take the National Council Licensure Examination to begin working as a registered nurse. Then, they continue their education and obtain a Master of Science in Nursing. Following that, they become certified in family practice via the American Nurses Credentialing Center of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, allowing them to become certified family nurse practitioners.
Some family doctors provide immunizations while others do not. Typically, doctors who work as part of a large practice are more likely to offer vaccines in-house. Doctors in offices of one to two physicians are more likely to refer patients to a public health department or other immunization provider.
A physician's assistant is a person qualified to perform routine medical services. This individual is professionally licensed and certified, but they may not have the extensive med school education of a doctor.That said, PAs do complete almost three years of postgraduate study and more than 2,000 hours of rotations.
