Never, please never go to this doctor. Horrrrrrible! I wish there was a zero star. I went to see the doctor 2.5 weeks ago and he prescribed me the wrong dose of medicine. Ever since then, my pharmacy and I have been calling every other day to get the right prescription and so far NOTHING. And here I am suffering from my pain. I am suppose to have a follow up visit after 1 month of starting to take the medicine and I havent even been able to start it. There is no positive response from his staff. When I called them, they say that they sent a message to the doctor to resubmit the prescription and when I ask if you can please physically go to him and ask him to resend it, their response is "no, the front desk people cannot talk to the doctor". When I ask for a nurse, "their response is, the nurse is not available." By the way, the doctor only works a few hours of the week, so you need to wait days for him to just come to work to see the message. The staff absolutely doesnt care about what kind of service they are giving you. When I expressed my dissatisfaction and said that I may not return to their practice again, there was no sense of remorse or apology. The staff actually told me "it is your choice if you dont want to return". At this point I will wait a few days, after that I am going to a different doctor to get the medicine again.

Dr. Pistole has been our doctor for over 20 years. He is extremely knowledgeable, has a wonderful beside manner and does what it takes to get to the root of the problem. He has no hesitation in consulting with other professionals and his follow-up on such is quick.

I'm not one for going to the doctor, even though I need to on a regular basis. I always feel comfortable, safe and cared for by Dr. Pistole and his staff. They make it possible for me to participate in my care, and that get's me to my appointments!

Pistole is always willing to explain and involve the patient in any decisions. While he frequently runs late, it is due to seeing patients in the hospital.
