Hold-up artist

High turn-over of foreign-trained associates -- whenever we got one to treat us like real humans (about 3-4 years), they mysteriously left the practice. Dr. John himself is unreachable, won't talk about patient care with us, and insists on an expensive battery of unnecessary tests to renew prescriptions that are long-term assignments. Simply not acceptable.

Dr. Scolamiero - Great doctor

Dr. Scolamiero is a terrific doctor. He is able to diagnose complex issues, and provides the correct treatment instead of just giving "standard responses" like "oh - you must have allergies." He really listens to you when you have a medical issue, and is able to drill down to the core and help you get well.In fact, I even started taking my 11 yr. old there because of "dumb" responses we were getting from her Pediatricians who had treated her since birth! He correctly diagnosed her with migraines, advised us to seek out a Pediatric Neurologist and helped find one (not an easy feat!).Yes, Dr.S is very busy - because in addition to being an excellent doctor, he also "Manages" the East Hanover Med-Care facility. As a businesswoman, I can appreciate the fact that he has to deal with supervisory issues, vendor issues, etc - as well as a full waiting room when he is at the East Hanover Med Care - so if he is "telling someone what to do on the phone or in the office room in a directive manner" ... good for him. He is multi-tasking, and still able to see patients and help them.Also - if you need to have an X-ray you can have one done at the facility instead of having to be sent somewhere else. This is very convenient, expecially when you are suffering from severe brochititits and he wants to confirm that it has not become pneumonia. I highly recommend Dr. Scolamiero and the staff at East Hanover Med-Care. They have provided me with excellent care, without having to wait forever for an appointment, on many, many occasions.

One Star

he's rude, got too many things going on at once, treats people like they are beneath him. Gives tests for everything that insurance will pay for and you get stuck with a higher co-pay and never recommends going to a lab or another facility if he has the equipment. Going to a different lab or facility would mean less out of pocket expense for the patient. If you don't pay promptly the collection agency and courts and banging on your door. He is only out for the mighty dollar.
