35 minutes wait in examination room. Doctor did not want to talk about issues other than the one I made the appointment for citing your company policy allowing only 20 minutes visit ( but i had to wait 35 minutes). Felt unwanted.

My appointment was scheduled for 4:00 pm and to expedite the process I pre-registered online and had my vitals taken within 10 minutes of check-in, however, it did take another 20 mins before I was actually seen. Staff was very professional and Dr Lombardo answered all my concerns with great attention and so the waiting issue was not an issue after all. My experience with Dr Lombardo was excellent and I quickly realized how attentive he was with my concerns.

I had to wait in the tiny exam room for almost an hour after my Appt time...Although I understand the Dr cannot guarantee exact time,I would have felt more comfortable in the main waiting room literally 100' away...And a few magazines in that waiting room might be a good idea

Yes the Dr. Lombardo very good doctor. Actually one of the best doctors I ran across in a long time, which is why my hospital visits are still far and in between but with this doctor, you know I think that he's going to make it easier for me to get the care that you said I need. And I'm sure that he provides great doctor.

I was a little apprehensive about a doctor's appointment on a phone. That was my first time. And as always Dr. Lombardo made me feel comfortable and able to ask any questions that I needed and was very appreciative and thankful. And that is why he's been my doctor for over 20 years.

Shorter waiting time.

I seen Dr. Lombardo for many years now and I find him to be extremely professional, very courteous friendly. Just I am always completely satisfied with my care, and I love him so much and also, I'm so glad that Downy or PIH bought Pioneer Medical Group because I have nothing I've had nothing, but the best customer service with you people and you have no idea how much I appreciate you. So, thank you so much. You guys are great. Keep on doing the great job that you do. Bye.

My doctor has been very fine with us and especially with me, that I am already so old and he understands me, he listens to me and has given me the medicine that he believes is better for me and serves me a lot. I have a lot of confidence in it, I doctor God bless you and they are here to serve you.

Great visit. Thank you!

Dr. Lombardo has been my primary care physician for many years. He is easy to talk to and always seems to be aware of my on-going medical issues.

I really need to see an ear throat & nose specialist still.
May 25, 2021
As far as PIH, i think that they should definitely have a number that we could call on the weekends to schedule an appointment for our doctor versus waiting just on the weekdays, but as for Dr. Lombardo, he's always great. I followed him from my old health plan. He is the best doctor I've ever had and I love him dearly.
May 25, 2021
Staff were courteous and professional. Wait time to see doctor once called into a room was about 20-30 min. Dr Lombardo was friendly and thorough and listened to what I had to say.

Dr. Lombardo has been my Family Doctor for many years. Every visit has resulted in positive outcomes. He is the best!
April 22, 2021
Dr Lombardo is a very good doctor. All the staff is really nice. The wait for my appointment was 50 minutes. Can I come 50 minutes late? Frustrating.
April 22, 2021
I have been a patient of Dr. Lombardo for over 30 years and have been more than happy with his service and care. However, since PIH has taken over I have seen changes that I do not like. For example, moving physicians from one office to another, discontinuing certain services at some locations and moving them to a further distant location, and placing time limits on the physician. I have seen my wait time for an appointment increase to over one hour waiting time. While I can understand some of the changes, I cannot understand why some services were moved or discontinued all together. Doctor's I saw for other specialties have been terminated. One doctor I admired was let go and I thank God I was able to see him before he left. I know the pandemic has had an impact, and I am taking that into consideration. I hope that once things settle down a bit, we will see some of these issues resolved. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Finding a spot on parking structure took me about 15 minutes, it made me late for my visit
April 12, 2021
At the time of scheduling the appointment I asked to be given enough time to give the doctor a little background which seemed important for my visit. I was cut short by the provider on the appointment and I don't feel I was completely heard. Therefore my diagnosis I believe is incorrect.
April 08, 2021
I feel like Dr. Lombardo understands me, my background and my needs. He is reassuring and pleasant and never seems rushed.
April 07, 2021
I love being a patient here because I feel respected and cared for. Dr. Lombardo and staff members are great.

Professional & precise. What more can you ask for?
April 06, 2021
Dr. Lombardo and his nurse is kind. He's attentive and always listens to what I have to say.
March 31, 2021
Dr. Lombardo is great always does a good job when I see him. He's very thorough, and always make sure that everything everything is okay with me the thing. I have a problem with is the fact that you referred to some other group or or like to a specialist on there that takes a lot longer than I would I would like usually is, you know, it could take like 2 weeks, and I think it should be sooner than that. But other than that once I get in to see the specialist and I've done everything is good, but then as I think I takes a little too long to do there, so maybe you guys could work on that. Other than that everything else was great. Thank you.

I came in for a hit & run accident and spoke to the nurse regarding the situations to see the pcp. But the DR did not even know and talk about my high blood pressure until I told him, what I came in for. Than that's when he said I have to set another appointment for that..... so I was billed for not what I came in for. When I strictly said what I did, when arrived at hand.

awesome doctor with years of experience

Dr. Lombardo always listens to my reason for seeing him and follows up with additional questions that help him to address my health issues. He also asks peripheral questions that may be helpful to both of us in addressing my immediate and perhaps future health issues. He is doctor that I trust with my health care.
October 01, 2020
The Dr Lombardo took time to listen and answer all my concerns.
September 28, 2020
My physician was very pleasant professional and very informative gave good advice on how to control some of my issues and conditions would recommend to all my friends and family
September 24, 2020
This provider took the time to explain things clearly to me, so I could understand what he was meaning in "regular people" terms. He even addressed an issue that was not on my "list", for which I am very grateful. Even his "bedside" manner was pleasant.
