Ratings for Dr. David P. Kowalski
I left another practice to follow Laura and never regretted it. She took the time to get to know us and was professional and thorough. I have since moved out of the area and STILL make a point of commenting on this practice. They have engaged, friendly staff and a very well run office.
Dr K and Laura are the best. The entire staff is great, especially Nurse Tracy. The amount of time and quality of care given by the staff are above and beyond always. There is generally a bit of a wait, but this is because they are taking time and care with each patient. You won't find a better team anywhere-- the quality of care at Kowalski FP is top notch. Dr. K and Laura are as sharp as they are compassionate, which is a rare in the health care profession. Grateful that they are my FP's!
Dave, Laura and their entire staff are the most courteous, attentive, competent healthcare providers with whom I have ever interacted. This may sound weird, but Dave and Lara, in some sense, worry more about my health than I do, it seems. Dave looks me in the eye and says what I need to hear, not what he'd say if he wanted me out of the office as quickly and cheaply as possible. That has made a tremendous impression on me. They're good people.
I have seen Dr Kowalski a few times and laura many times. Both are thorough and try to give their all while with you in the appointment. As a person with complicated addiction issues Laura has tried to steer me toward the right professionals to address my needs. Pleasant and humorous, yet serious and understanding at the same time, she is well respected bu myself and many of her other patients. Only good experiences with Laura !!
Sadly there has been a shift in attitude from spending time in addressing your health concerns to more concern about ensuring that we are seen on a semi or annual basis, depending on our coverage at the time. The care is focused on waiting until health concerns become serious and need medical attention, instead of preventing or improving our health.
Dr Kowalski and Laura Ridge are wonderful doctors. They are caring, attentive, and very thorough. My family and I have always been seen promptly, treated with kindness and respect, and sent home on our way to better health. I am always impressed with all the staff. The nurses are also wonderful, and excellent with my kids. I am so grateful to have them as my primary family doctor!
Dr. Kowalski and Physician Assistant Laura Ridge are both very good and helpful. We like the entire practice so much that along with my husband and myself, all of our children that live in Buffalo NY, the majority of our grandchildren and around 6 of our friends now use this practice. They are very thorough with their your visit and follow up with you within a reasonable amount of time regarding testing. We love the practice and hope that it always stays the same. It is pretty special when your family doctor ends of coming to the hospital when your grandchild is born! Reminds you of the way a family practice used to be.
