1 review in the last week Dr P. Koruth is not a good doctor nor does he have sound judgement with diagnosing patients and their signs and symptoms. He thinks everything is a joke and lacks the knowledge to medically discern a fatal sign and symptom from an acute/ chronic sign and symptom that a patient is presenting. Also he lacks the medical discernment to follow through " by law" as to provide a lifesaving outcome to ensure that a patient gets the medical care that they need ..whether it's giving a direct order to go to the ER or follow up with patients history and make sound medical judgement as to what will provide the best outcome to what the patient is suffering from . "DR P KORUTH DOES NOT KNOW HOW TO DIAGNOSE A PATIENT WHOM IS PRESENTING WITH SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF A MASSIVE HEART ATTACK." My mother was having signs and symptoms of a massive heart attack and went to see Dr Koruth at his medical office , and while there she was having extreme chest pain radiating to her arms, was nausea and very weak , clutching her chest and leaning over onto my Father's chest due to the pain , and kept telling Dr Koruth that she has extreme chest pain . Dr Koruth did a ekg .. not the lead that would show a heart attack in progress , and even though my Mom was physically presenting all of the signs and symptoms of a heart attack ..he said the ekg was ok, and made a joke about her feeling all of this chest pain by stating to her , " OH, I HOPE THAT YOUR NOT HAVING A CARDIO ON ME "! Dr Koruth then stated to my Mom ..."Oh , I believe you just have a bug..go home and let me know later how you are feeling." Still my Mom kept telling Dr Koruth about the chest pain and he still stated "you have a bug/virus". Dr Koruth sent my Mom home, I am a Nurse and my Dad reported to me all that was happening so I went over to my Mom' house and noticed right away the signs and symptoms she was presenting of a massive heart attack ...my Mom ended up in the Hospital ER and was immediately diagnosed with a "MASSIVE HEART ATTACK "... She had 200% blockage with all the arteries affected combined. Dr Koruth has been treating my Mom for my years ..he has her history of high blood pressure and family history of heart attacks and yet when my Mom was in his office clearly presenting with signs/symptoms of a heart attack he failed to have medical discernment and judgement to diagnose her or send her to the ER . It is my belief as a Nurse that if I did not go to her house and note the signs and symptoms of a heart attack and take her to the ER immediately...perhaps my Mom would have died . The Negligence as I believe of Dr Koruth is horrible and he should not be practicing.

Have been going to Dr. Koruth around 20 years. He listens and he is patient. He is not my way or the hiway. If he feels a second opinion is needed he will not hesitate to tell you. He is a compassionate dr. which now days is a rarity.

wonderful office staff, Dr. Koruth has great bedside manner, we've been with him for almost 15 years...he's helped us through so many issues and has been right on the money with all of them...each time he greets us with a friendly handshake and smile inquiring as to how we are doing and what is up with us, then on to the issues...just a very wonderful doctor and a nice man.....

My husband has been a patient of Dr. Koruth for appox. a year. We recently had a insurance change and one of his high blood pressure medications required a dr. pre authorization. The Dr. refused to give the authorization stating that he could paid cash for it. Our new insurance lets us get the medication for free. This is totally unacceptable considering that Dr. Koruth is the one who put him on the medication. He is very knowledgeable but has an attitude that he is perfect and that if you have an illness is because you are doing everything wrong.
