Very Good Doctor

Dr. Black has always treated me as well as I could expect. I was in the hospital twice and not on his behalf but he showed up at my room everyday. He was there just to check on me. I think he cares very much for his patients as well as there families. He has always explained my situation where my wife and I understand.

First Appointment

Gave thorough examination with breathing tests, x rays, and physical exam/consultation with doctor. Was not happy with diagnosis, but glad the doctor caught my condition early.

Difficult to Talk To

He is just not an easy doctor to talk with and appears to have no empathy or the ability to express feelings to the patient or family members to put them at ease.

One Star

Cold and detached are the two words I have for him. How would he like it if he had a family member seriously ill and was treated in the manner he treats them? No smile or word of encouragement much less empathy. Really sad because he is a great dr.

Flat-liner of compassion to the point it is insulting to both patient and family.

Post Lung Transplant Patient

Dr. Black may not have the bedside manner that everyone thinks he should, but I am alive today partly because of his excellent care. Great Doctor!

One Star

Not impressed mainly because he doesn't seem "approachable or as others have said, "compassionate." He does know his particular field but I want a doctor who has both qualities.

One Star

His bedside manner is horrible. When talking to the patient and their family, he could be more warm and compassionate. More than that, he could look the patient lying in that bed with a tube down their throat in the eye and introduce himself to them and say something kind. When the patient moves their head and eyes and looks at you and you say nothing at all, I consider that despicable, unkind, and totally unacceptable. I don't care if you are a great doctor because you are, not showing empathy or compassion completely over-rides it all. There are other doctors out there that ARE compassionate, DO show empathy, and take time to "sit down" and talk to the family...not to mention "the patient."

Excellent physician

I have gone to Dr. Black for several years and have seen him in varying degrees of sickness and wellness. I have the utmost respect for his diagnostic abilities. I have always felt his bedside manner was very professional and appropriate.
