2015 Best of the PoconosRajesh Bhagat, M.D.
Experienced, knowledgeable, inquisitive, good diagnostician, communicates well with patients, explains issues clearly, good follow through with individual cases. We know... we've tried them all.

Amer. Board of Allergy/Immunology, 1983
American Board of Pediatrics, Inc., 1982
292 East Brown St
East Stroudsburg, PA 18301

    Yes, of course, if you can find some way to pull Eli Berman, MD out of his well deserved retirement to consult DO IT! If not, we believe, you find complete satisfaction with the following:
  • Jeffrey Bair, M.D.
    Experience, (Initially with DR Berman and then much on his own), educated at well-respected schools for the specialty and, we are told, still accessible.

    American Board of Internal Medicine, 1983
    Medical Associates of Monroe County
    239 East Brown Street
    East Stroudsburg, PA 18301
    2015 Best of the PoconosDarell Covington, M.D.
    Efficient, but yet takes time with patients for discussions of procedures and their results on the layman's level. A colonoscopy will be as fun as a colonoscopy can be. Swift, efficient and tactful.

    American Board of Colon and Rectal Surgery, 1991
    447 Office Plaza, 500 Plaza Ct., Suite C
    East Stroudsburg, PA 18301
  • 2015 Best of the PoconosPULMONARY DISEASES
    Khemraj Sedani, M.D.
    This was a tough choice with most local specialists well rated. We found this physician to be attentive, able to hold a discussion on many different levels, knowledgeable of the most recent developments in the field and readily accessible.

    American Board of Internal Medicine, 1998
    Pocono Pulmonary Asso., P.C.
    400 Plaza Court, Suite A
    East Stroudsburg, PA 18301
    So many choices..... but, with years of experience, a small practice which allow him to get to know his patients and with the patience to explain each procedure to you, we think Bruce Reish DDS, PA Rt 611 and Heller Drice, Stroudsburg, PA (570) 424-6607 is the right person with whom to trust your teeth.
    Still working on this.. Suggestions?
  • 2015 Best of the PoconosGASTROENTEROLOGY
    Charles Cohan, D.O.
    A swift diagnostician (probably the Army training). A good, efficient communicator that goes directly to the issues involved with questions answered readily (probably the Army training) and is known to work long days (probably the Army training).

    American Board of Internal Medicine, 1993
    175 East Brown Street, Suite 201-A

  • 2015 Best of the Poconos INFECTIOUS DISEASE

Working closely with Pocono Health System and other PMC Physician Associates doctors, he develops and implements both institutional and national guidelines for how to manage contagious diseases.

  • 175 East Brown Street, Suite 201A East Stroudsburg, PA 18301 .
    There were more candidates in this field than any other. We looked here for the most rounded, respected and reliable. We also released from consideration those who were Internal Medicine Practitioners but, who also had specialties.

    2015 Best of the PoconosVincent Francescangeli, M.D.

    Rounded, respected and reliable. He has an ability to communicate with patients on many levels including listening in depth to the description of the problem. As in any medical consultation, go prepared to describe in depth the issues involved. Experience played a part in our selection, 20 years, as did education and the Doctor's experience at a teaching hospital. Respected as a diagnostician, he takes the time to explore the possibilities of your complaints to arrive at the most reliable source for the problem before treatment.

    2015 Best of the Poconos
    Kilareski Orthodontics
    Sometimes the choice is empirical. More of us, our kids and even our grandparents (his oldest patient = 76) have had our molars pushed and pulled by Dr. Viechnicki and his pleasant and efficient staff. The experience is a screaming good time and the results also scream with the quality of a well thought out program to make a smile the best it can be. At Kilareski Orthodontics, Dr. Thomas Kilareski & Dr. William A. Viechnicki strive to provide the highest quality of orthodontic care to their patients in and around the Monroe, Pike, Northampton and surrounding counties. They know what a significant difference in health and self-esteem a beautiful smile can make, which is why they are dedicated to giving each of our patients the beautiful, straight smile they deserve! Early Treatment They are specialists in determining whether early (interceptive) orthodontic treatment can be valuable to a child. Early orthodontic treatment can relieve or correct many bite problems before they become permanent . More importantly, it can reduce the expense of orthodontics and time needed in braces!

    John Altobelli

    Here, we have gone out of town. Yes, it is a hike. Yes, you will have to travel to Allentown for the procedure. And yes, you will be pleased with the pleasant staff, warm friendly attention and extremely professional attitude towards making you look the best you can be. If your procedure is purely aesthetic, be prepared Dr. John might just say “No” if he thinks it is not the right thing to do.

    William Parker, D.P.M

    A humanistic approach to the problems of your feet. A Doctor with knowledge, experience and efficiency in treating your complaints or injuries. Takes time to counsel you to the options involved in treatment and does not push for a treatment that goes beyond what is required to make you healthy and satisfied.

    Michael Eufemio, Jr.,M.D.

    Now this was a tough choice. We went with the best communicator who was most accessible with a good education. We also considered, though not the most experienced, he is backed up by being part of a group providing him access to knowledgeable associates for consultation.

    American Board of Urology, Inc., 2000

How we made our selections:

It is important to note that there are many fine medical professionals in The Poconos, we have included here those found by our staff and researchers to be outstanding. We have not included any we have direct knowledge as sub par. Like the Dentist who drilled a hole through the tongue of the wife of a staff member or the most sued Podiatrist in the history of Monroe County.

Research for these picks was, in most cases, a combination of direction interaction with the physician by at least one staff member or researcher AND research into the physicians education and experience. We have listed the date the physician enter into the chosen field not the date the physician first started practice. Some physicians listed have been practicing longer than it appears.

There were some difficult decisions made with 1 or 2 selections. The staff and researchers found more experienced or educated professionals than the selections, but were deterred by a physician's, attitude toward their profession or patients, lack of bedside manner as in an inability to communicate with the patient on a level that most would find acceptable or lack of accessibility (semi retired, too busy with other interests like real estate holdings or stock portfolios).

We sought here to provide a resource for you to use to select the best-rounded choice.
