Good experience.
Patient | August 24, 2018

Appreciated concern even though my symptoms had passed a couple days before appt. Spent adequate time discussing what to next time symptoms occur & gave his cell # for future reference.
Patient | August 24, 2018

Provider did not seem to be interested in me. Never asked me a question. He was professional in what he told me about heating and sent me upstairs to make an appointment. It was like he was in a hurry to go to a meeting. After 24 hours I realized the encounter was less than satisfactory. I will never go back to him.
Patient | August 20, 2018

Possibly the best experience with a doctor that I've ever had. He explained everything clearly, and went out of his way to quickly inform me of my test results.
Patient | August 20, 2018

Dr. Trone is excellent. He was thorough but got to the root of my problem quickly. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. I would not hesitate to refer someone else to him, or to go back again if the need arises.
Patient | April 30, 2018

Dr Trone explain everything to me and what was going on in my ear
Patient | April 24, 2018

I would recommend him to any of my family or friends.
Patient | April 10, 2018

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.
Patient | March 12, 2018

the first physician in his field to take all of my history and symptoms into consideration.
Patient | March 1, 2018

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.
