I couldn't understand the bad reviews until just recently and figured it was a one time event I was so wrong (Amanda). The Current Staff of Dr. Onofrie should learn by example from the good Doctor and provide the customer service that once was paramount in the doctors office such as but not limited to returning calls, providing accurate information without speaking down to the client, PA that would call to provide information instead of having to make and appointment to get an question answered, like my time doesn't matter and it's more money for them. It's a shame to see such a good practice getting so many bad reviews and with todays technology the bad news travels at warp speed which can be the end of a once great business.

Best general practitioner in Arizona! When asking what I felt were too many questions, his response was, "take all the time you need!" His bedside manner is awesome and he is very thorough. You will love him!

One Star

I first used Dr. Onofrie for my health about 15 years ago and was very satisfied. However, as the years have grown by, his practice has grown too large and he has not added more staff to handle my needs efficiently and effectively (expect for a few PA's and NP's that disappear in a few months). It seems like he is never available and on vacation. I made an appointment for this Friday (July 3rd) two weeks ago and the office called me TODAY (three days before my appointment) to tell me my appointment is cancelled (office manager decision) because everyone will be on vacation. VERY poor office management. SO I have found a new GP today and all my records have been transferred due to electronic medical records. Also, the front desk USED to have caring and helpful people, but now have no personality, care, or concern. SO DONE with this medical provider!!!!

My husband and I agree with the 2014 reviews. However, almost wholesale change of staff has occurred with computerization of files and creation of patient portal with complete information. Dr. Onofrei, himself, is very attentive, patient and competent--as is his accessibility. Jury still out with PAs, staff and their response to patients, but seems to be greatly improving. It has become easier to see the Dr. himself.
