I would recommend him to any of my family or friends.

Very encouraging in describing a possible solution to my problem - anosmia!
Patient | April 4, 2018

I would definitely recommend these folks to others!

He seemed to be a very kind a knowledgeable doctor. He used a lot of large terms that I could figure out using context clues, but were not super "basic-patient" friendly (example: saying "anterior" and "posterior" instead of saying "front" and "back") Not a big deal, but y'all asked for feedback. RE: the amount of time spent, I think he spent the amount of time needed to address the issue at hand, and I did not feel like I was being rushed out or anything. But I felt that the whole process was a lot of work, time, and money to diagnose something in less than 5 minutes that he basically knew the answer to after asking me a handful of questions. Not really his fault...just saying.

the first physician in his field to take all of my history and symptoms into consideration.

10 is perfection to me so I very seldom offer a 10
Patient | February 20, 2018

Doctor did not adequately address my health concerns. Doctor was not up to date on available over the counter medications pertaining to my treatment. I seemed to know more about my condition than the doctor. Doctor used terms I did not understand and when asked did not clarify very well.
Patient | February 13, 2018

Truly excellent and professional.
Patient | February 7, 2018

Provider prescribed medication without discussing side effects. Dismissed my symptoms. No empathy.
Patient | January 24, 2018

Good experience.
Patient | January 24, 2018

I have already arranged to bring my aunt to see Dr. Trone!
Patient | December 18, 2017

In my 45 years, I have never received such excellent health care as Dr. Trove provided. He is an exceptional doctor.
Patient | October 17, 2017

He could not have been nicer, more informed, more caring or have a better sense of humor--values we treasure in a health care provider.
Patient | September 18, 2017

little explanation of what to expect during or after procedure. i was worried that i would have problems after driving home. he offered to reschedule but didnt answer if dizziness was a possible aftereffect. he asked questions during procedure that i could not hear even after i asked him to come around to face me he stayed behind me.
Patient | September 2, 2017

Very understanding listen to my concerns.
Patient | August 30, 2017

I was disappointed by the care I received from this provider. There was a first year medical student in the room throughout my visit, and the doctor never asked if it was okay for him to be there. I did not give consent for him to observe my visit and diagnostic procedure. The doctor spent most of the time talking to the medical student explaining my health issue as if I wasn't in the room- I understand this is a teaching hospital but I felt like a medical case study first and a patient second. Because of this, I felt as if the doctor did not fully listen to my concerns or explain the follow up tests he recommended. I have not scheduled the follow up test or visit because I do not feel comfortable returning to this provider.
Patient | August 28, 2017

Made contradictory statements about diagnosis & treatment. Became hostile when contradictions were pointed out.
Patient | August 24, 2017

Dr. Trone said "learn to deal with it." No recommendations explanations, or alternative tests. He merely said "this condition is USUALLY benign. You have to deal with it."
Patient | August 3, 2017

He would not listen to me, told me I was wrong in information about self & misdiagnosed me - came back to regular provider following week.
Patient | August 2, 2017

He was VERY good and seemed to have seen my problem before and likelihood that treatment would... Very relieved and confident in Dr. Trone.
Patient | July 15, 2017

This is an exceptional doctor!
Patient | July 14, 2017

Patient | June 30, 2017

Had no solutions. Did not discuss ternative forms of treatment. Very simplistic on treatment.
Patient | June 4, 2017

Dr Trone is very competant and Professional
Patient | May 28, 2017

The visit helped eliminate a source of the problem but did nothing towards helping me understand the cause or how to manage the problem.
Patient | April 27, 2017

He is one of the best drs. I have seen anywhere, things are progressing as he has stated.
Patient | April 26, 2017
