Ratings for Dr. G. James Scozzafava
Terrible bedside manner wrote it off as something I was pretending to feel for attention. Didn't seem to care looked bored my entire visit and treated me like I wasn't smart enough. Didn't give me any explanation or help towards a treatment plan. Not very friendly.
I have had Dr S. For many years. I have always found both he and his staff to be incredibly helpful understanding and compassionate. He seems genuinely concerned for your health and actually listens to your questions. I cannot recommend him enough.
Dr Scozzafava and his staff were amazing they went above and beyond. First time ive ever felt cared for to have a doctor stop someone doing what they do and give this person instructions more specific to my situation then explain everything to me as to what he was doing was so comforting and amazing. I felt i was getting top notch help by far i am thankful honored and very thankful to have Dr. Scozzafaza as my doctor i gave top score for punctuality even thou the doctor was a bit late i feel the hospital was very busy and Dr. Scozzafava takes the time for his patients if needed I did not mind waiting at all for him. i also feel he is excptional
Dr. Scozzafava is amazing. He made me feel very welcome and at ease, and I could see that he was considering the information I was giving him, as he created first steps in our plan and then explained the entire process to me. I highly recommend Dr. Scozzafava. The staff and punctuality suffered a bit because I have to be honest in my review. I was told Dr. Scozzafava is never late (he was about 30m late), so this was obviously an anomaly and I would not let it influence your decision on doing business with this doctor. He is exceptional.
Dr. Scozzafava, in my opinion is a wonderful doctor and extremely patient and compassionate. I had a very difficult diagnosis to figure out as I had unique symptoms that he had not seen before, however, he consulted with other neurologists and was very thorough. I had 2 brain MRI's in a 6-month period before he was able to determine what was happening to me. He should incredible concern for me as I went through this. I would definitely recommend Dr. Scozzafava to anyone! Thank you for everything :)
Horrible, horrible experience with him. Looked bored, was bored, and I was out from his office in less than 5 minutes. Was not in the mood for a consult - after I waited 4 months for a booking. Poor bedside manners. I cannot say how knowledgeable he is, as he was in a big hurry to send me out from his office. I had to talk to my family doctor to send me to another neurologist - I had to wait another almost 4 months, but the other neurologist was helpful, caring and helped me finding the issue that bothered me. I would not recommend him based on my experience. Maybe he is good and knowledgeable, but he did not show that in my meeting with him.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Scozzafava. Another emergency room called him to see if they could send me over one weekend, he was at a different hospital. Without hesitation he agreed and made she I was given the proper medical attention, and promptly. Without his knowledge, compassion and care, I truly believe I would not be able to walk today. I am so very fortunate to have been under his care.
Dr James was my doctor when I was admitted to the Grey Nuns with my stroke. He is the one who told me what was happening to me. I found him to be very compassionate and thorough. He actually was visibly upset when he told me I had a major stroke. Very rare today when we are mostly "a disease", "a number" or "just another case". I truly appreciated his care and consideration while in the hospital he took his time sat down and actually listened to any concerns I had and noted when I made improvements. I would recommend Dr James S to anyone who has an issue they are not sure of and want straightforward honest answers. Lois S.
