Kind, caring and compassionate. Takes plenty of time to hear my concerns, I never feel rushed. Sometimes the wait is a bit long, but I know that he is taking time with other patients just as he does with me. He's definitely worth the wait.

Dr. Cieciura rated poorly as a primary care doctor

He is a very poor doctor in my opinion based on a 10 year experience. He failed to telephone the results of an MRI which showed spinal stenosis which caused me to fall and break a hip. Instead he had his assistant call me and say II needed to see a "spine doctor" I tried making an appointment with a neurosurgeon on my own and was told it would be almost 2 months before I could be seen. Meanwhile 5 days after the MRI which showed severe narrowing of the spinal canal, I fell and broke my right hip requiring immediate surgery to repair the hip and 10 weeks recovery in a rehab facility. I left him for another primary care doctor after that experience. I would ask his current patients undergoing a "complete physical" if he taps the knees to test for stenosis and pinched nerves. I would rate him as a very poor primary care doctor.
