My recent visit with a nurse practitioner was a follow up to a recent injection I received from Dr DeMicco who I see for pain management. Dr. DeMicco is excellent, but unfortunately my visit with Joe left a lot of unanswered questions. I do not want to see him again.

The complaint that I have is; waiting in the exam room without staff alerting you that the provider is running late.

I have never had a bad or unpleasant experience with the staff at the check-out area. They are always cheerful and do their best to get the best future appointments as possible. It really helps with the "having to go to the doctor" experience.

Provider had impressive knowledge of the disease process, of the appropriate testing, and of all the risks and benefits of the options for treatment. It was easy to trust him because of this, plus the fact that he listened with a very open mind to my individual concerns. He knew both the scientific facts plus the all the holistic elements that help eliminate symptoms. I felt assured he was the best Clinician to help me.

SUPER DOCTOR!! You can tell he loves what he does. The BEST exam I have ever gotten. He listened to me, asked questions. We didn't feel rushed in the process.

I am to see someone later about further recommendations.

Sorry Joe...but I was waiting for the results that you said you would email me and I never received. How can I follow up with the therapy you suggested if I don't know?
