I left feeling better about my health. I had been out of the hospital a week and he explained my care and medicine I was taking. When I left I felt if I needed him I could rely on him and the staff.

My purpose of my visit with Dr John C Baniewicz on *** was for new patient intake. The doctor and the office staff were all very professional, respectful and caring. I was very impressed by Dr. Baniewicz. He was thorough when discussing my medical history, he listened carefully and answered my questions fully and he explained the next steps in my health care journey with him. ***

Even though the doctor and his staff have been extremely busy, when I was in the exam room and it was "my turn" I was treated like his only patient-in the world. I had been feeling more under stress, and really needed that concern. And .. Got it!!

(5)
1/1/2024

I have spent as long as a half-hour holding on the phone to reach the provider's office. Often I have had to hang up as I have other things to do and have had to call back again and hold an equally long amount of time. That is a big change since UH took over!!!

I cannot say enough about Dr. Baniewicz, he is everything a Patient wants with a Primary Care Physician!! He is so personable, so caring and also very attentive, making It very easy to talk to him, makes you very comfortable to address any concerns. He's also very thorough, you feel like you're in the best hands with him (he leaves no rock unturned), really seems to know what he's doing (or certainly giving It his best)!! He's the perfect Primary Care Physician, which other Doctors could really learn from!! Keep up the GREAT Job!!

I just want to say how caring and compassionate Dr. Baniweicz is. He asked me how I was managing alone, was I taking care of myself, getting exercise and if I needed anything. He wanted to know how I felt, not just labs or x-rays. I felt like I was important to him. I am so glad to have him as my physician.

Dr. John C. Baniewicz is is the process of taking me off/moving some meds around. He explained thoroughly the reasons why, and I was pleased to hear this. He'll be checking in a month, and with the help of my home records, he will decide what the next "move" will be. I am pleased with his reasons and approach to this. Looking forward to next visit.

This was a first appointment as my physician retired. Totally satisfied as doctor discussed issues and listen to want input I had as a patient. Very satisfied in my selection of a new primary physician.

(5)
10/1/2023

Absolutely love Dr B but it's hell getting someone to answer the phone at that office, I know everyone is short staffed these days and it's absolutely no reflection on Dr B but it's easier for me to drive over in person to get through someone than to sit on the phone for over 20 minutes and not have someone pick up. Insane.

6/1/2023

I cannot begin to express how much I value Dr. Baniweicz. He truly is concerned about me and how I am managing. I am a widow and he always asked how I have been managing at home, do I get out of the house and if there is anything that I may need. This is the type of physician that I value. He sees me as a whole person and not just what I came to see him about.

My psychiatrist of about 30 years retired. Dr. Baniewicz said he would be happy to monitor my mental health and to keep prescribing the medication that I've been doing well with for years. That was a big relief.

5/1/2023

This was my first appointment with Dr. Baniewicz because I changed my PCP. I was really impressed. Not only was he so smart and knowledgeable, he showed such kindness and compassion. I had been seeing my former PCP for a decade and never felt the same level of caring that I experienced on my first appointment with Dr. Baniewicz. I was so very pleased and am so glad that I changed doctors (my former doctor was not in this practice or in the Lake UH system). I feel like my health care needs will be addressed with Dr. Baniewicz.

(5)
5/1/2023

This was my first appointment with Dr. Baniewicz and it was one of the most positive experiences I have ever had with a healthcare provider. He spent a good deal of time going over test and lab results ordered by my previous PCP, explaining details, ranges, and findings. Most importantly, he wanted to be sure I understood what he was saying and to reassure me about the results. Dr. Baniewicz is thorough, thoughtful, and kind in his approach and in the way he conducts himself throughout the entire exam process. I appreciate that results from the labs he ordered were conveyed to me by his office staff within two days. I feel most fortunate to have had him recommended to me and to now have him as my PCP.
