Wait time was way too long (almost an hour), doctor talked way too fast and tried to talk over my head with lots of technical jargon (probably to build up credibility) and finally suggested some treatment that wasn't covered by insurance - felt like I was being scammed

This doctor Dr. Prodromos, is the worst doctor I have ever dealt with. The office is so unprofessional, papers all over the desk, dirty bloody tissues in X Ray room. He charged me the fee for the office visit only tomake me wait 45 min wait till you see the office and the unprofessionalism in the office the mess on the desk, you will understand what I am saying.Or wait till you try to call, you will hear the unprofessional way they answer the call, put you on hold and argue with you. I and my insurance spent thousands of dollars just to hear the unprofessional doc and staff. Save your money and time, worst doctor I have ever ever seen, please be advised, if I would have read the reviews prior I would have my money in my pocket. He should be reviewed by the Medical Board, please stay away from him. save your time and money.

This doctor had me diagnosed and my treatment plan befor he ever saw me. His only treat option was PRR or Stem Cell, which of course are not covered by insurance. When I asked about other options he told me therewere no other options. All he wanted was to have me sign up for his very expensive treatment, of course with no real assurance it would even work! I will never go back, and I would advise anyone that wants a good orthopedic doctor to not see this one. He is all about the cash, not the patient.

Dr. Prodromos was not attentive and acted like a salesman of a treatment that his clinic offers. He was reluctant to talk about alternatives. I'm not able to trust a person like that with my health and based on my experience I would not recommend him.

I was scheduled for an exam with PRP to follow at a later date. They worked me in to a busy schedule so I didn't have to wait ( or schedule a return visit). I appreciated his and his teams effortsto accommodate me. I don't know yet about the effectiveness of the treatment but it worked before!

Dr. Podromos is a nice man and seems to be knowledgeable in his field, but I've never waited over an hour for a consultation/exam with any other doctor. Every time I've seen him, the wait time has been over an hour,he has maybe a 5-8 minute conversation with you, and that's it. At my last appointment, I was in the process of leaving out of frustration when Dr. P entered the room.

Chadwick Prodromos was the worst, most disrespectful and aggressive person I have come in contact with in a long time, let alone a doctor. He constantly interrupted me as I answered his questions in regards to the injury, he left theroom 3 times due to phone calls and was incredibly aggressive in his manner. He was apparently confused by the MRI results I had previously and was looking for a specific answer from me. He was basically reprimanding me for saying anything other than what he wanted to hear. He came very close to me and forcefully said that patients need to explain to doctors what happened so that they could help them, and that patients need to listen. Once I apparently said the answer he was looking for he then told me to explain how the injury happened because he could see he had upset me. He was incessantly insulting other orthopedic doctors in the area for beliefs other than his, talking up his own research, and he was not listening to the questions I asked. His words seemed scripted and couldn't care less about me, or his other patients. For a new patient describing a new injury, he did not listen and almost brought me to tears with how rude he was to me. I went elsewhere for another opinion and was actually offered advice and help to improve my functionality. Dr. Prodromos offered no solutions, nor help. I do not recommend him for his diagnoses nor manner. It was a horrible experience.

Dr. Prodromos is a true professional. He actually discouraged me from choosing surgery for my elbow problem, and rather advised me to try a simple and inexpensive way to solve my problem. I was doubtful, but to my surprise, In ashort period of time it proved to be quite effective, and the problem no longer exists. I thank Dr. Prodromos for saving me a bundle of money and surgical misery.
