It was good to have my questions answered and problems related to scheduling solved.

Patient's time needs to be valued more. I have never been to any Dr office where the wait was reasonable. I was there for almost an hour yesterday before Dr Lombardo came to the room. I had to change the focus of my visit because I was under time constraints. That being said Dr Lombardo was very gracious about it and made sure my questions were answered. The entire staff was extremely friendly and professional.

After I gave this is doctor. All my symptoms. He could not give me an answer for any of them and then explain what I had to do after. If I have to go pick up prescriptions he could not give me an answer for anything.

I was being seen for having some shoulder pain and this provider was not very caring or concerned for what I had to say. I've seen this provider almost after every serious injury i've had (being the only one available) and he always treats me like i'm some drug addict or he never wants to prescibe me any medications this being as soon as he hears my problem. I don't come to the doctors office very often but when I do it is because i'm in some sort of serious discomfort or pain. I don't expect to be prescribed drugs nor do I want any, I would just like to have some sort of knowledge about what i'm being seen for and how to move accordingly afterwards. I came to this office with 8/10 pain, and i'm leaving the office with the same pain, no knowledge of why i'm in pain & no knowledge of how to treat this pain. Being that I do work for a healthcare facility and I come across many providers, this is byfar the worst one, and one of the reasons I remain hesitant to even come. Thanks for listening to my [name removed]talk. [fowl language removed}.

Yes, Dr. Lombardo was very professional, was very caring and was concerned about the issues I had. He answered every question in the most professional way. The staff there was very helpful. I was actually amazed at how helpful they were. I was actually checked in, in a timely matter, was seen in a timely matter and I would definitely recommend him to all my friends and family.

Dr. Lombardo is that rare physician who will discuss your diagnosis and treatment with you so that you fully understand and can make informed decisions about your care.

Everything was great EXCEPT I came in at 10:30am for an 11:00am appointment. Waited in the waiting room until 11:40, then moved into the examination room. Waited until 12:30pm until the Dr. came in to see me. Everything else was great.

My family has always been extremely happy with our care under Dr. Lombardo. He always listens to our concerns and offers advice we can understand. If there is something we do not understand he goes out of his way to fully explain it to us. The staff at this facility is always friendly and helpful even when they are very busy.

My name is [PHI removed] and I just want to say I am so thankful that Dr. Lombardo is my doctor. He cares, he listens and he wants to help. He wants to help you. He wants to make you better. He makes....wants to make you a better, healthier person, and he is such an asset to your company. I don't even...I'm kind of close, but I really don't mind driving. It's much further than the old facility. The old facility I loved. I think your new facility's, it's not's not as good for me, but I don't care where it is. I will go where Dr. Lombardo and his staff is. They are fantastic, and I love his nurse. She's great too, she's so wonderful. They're both great. They're just really kind, [word removed] people....really, really great people, so

I was very pleased with my overall experience. It was my first time at this office, the staff and Dr. Lombardo made for a great visit.

Hi. Happy with the service, but the parking is very, very bad, especially for senior citizens. Maybe you could consider extra parking in that facility. Thank you. Bye. Bye.

Both my husband and myself had an appointment. We were on time. The clerk only billed me for my visit, but not my husband. We told her at the desk to use the card that was given to pay for both of us from my husband - she did NOT do this. Your billing functions within PIH are so dis-organized. We keep getting bills for service rendered, pay at the time of visit, then we get yet another bill. This is frustrating and makes us NOT want to see our doctor in a timely fashion.

Yes. I had a very nice visit with Dr. Lombardo very respectful.
October 21, 2021
Dr Lombardo was able to see me quickly since my regular PCP could not within 1 month. That was a relief! Thank you.

The computer phone system was down, so they couldn't do much. I would like PIH to encourage providers to submit referrals as needed, i.e. MRI, specialist, etc. I am worried that providers are reluctant to submit for cost reasons. I love the attention and open dialogue I have with my provider. I listen to his medical advice.
