No Patient Satisfaction Reviews
Why not?

There is no publicly available rating for this medical professional for one of the following reasons:

  1. He or she is not employed by Penn Medicine.
  2. He or she does not see patients in a medical practice setting.
  3. He or she sees patients but has not yet received the minimum 30 patient satisfaction reviews in the past 12 months, ensuring that the rating is statistically reliable and a true reflection of patient satisfaction.
