From the moment I walked into his office I felt at ease. After a series of questions, tests and reviewing films , Dr Merola took time with my wife and I explaining the source of pain I have been experiencing for more than 4 years. Because of Dr. Merola I am now able to play with my kids and I have my life back....Thank You Dr
While Dr Katzman may or may not be a caring and competent doctor. His office suffers terribly from over booking. I had an appointment today and arrived 10 minutes before my appointment and still had to wait 1 hour and 28 minutes before being called to a room. When I spoke to the receptionist about this her answer was it happens, the doctor usually takes longer than expected with patients. My question is if you know that the doctor takes x amount of time then you're over booking.
My experience with Dr. Touliopoulos has been horrible, wait time to see the Doctor (if you are lucky enough to see him in person) is between 1 to 2 hours. He did surgery on my knee, and never checked after me post surgery. I called the office to speak with him regarding my surgery without a call back. My 2 week visit, I was told Dr. Touliopoulos was late coming into the office and a different doctor saw me instead of him. Since surgery, I have not been able to see him once so far.
Dr Touliopoulous is amazing!!!! But his staff is horrible. They are rude, unprofessional and non proactive. They also dodge phone calls and provide horrible/lack of surgery aftercare. Doc, pls re-train or replace staff. Queens office is old and dilapidated. Stick with Manhattan office.
Dr Merola did spine surgery on me 4 years ago. Prior to his coming into my exam room for my inital consultation, i heard him tell amother patient that surgery wasn't necessary. That raised my comfort level immediately, knowing that he wasn't one of the surgeons who wants to put every patient under the knife. Throughout the process, he took the time to explain everything, and patiently answered all of my many questions. My surgery was a complete success and my recovery was surprisingly quick.
Excellent and compasionate doctor
Best spinal doctor you will ever find. I drove myself crazy googling the surgery and it was so smooth. My back already feels great
Great provider and very helpful staff.
Everythink perfect.
Dr. Andrew Motorola did my back surgery in 2003 do to scoliosis its 2016 and I feel great thanks Dr. Merola God Bless You!! C.Buckner??
Dr. Tuliopolus should always get 5 stars, for he is a great Doctor. 15 years ago he removed my bonions on both feet. I never had any complications or pain since then. They never grew back. If anyone needs a bonion operation Dr. Tuliopolous is the right Doctor for it. If you have to wait for him a long time I strongly suggest that you wait. It is worth to wait for a great doctor then to have someone mess up your feet for life. Thanks a million Dr. Tuliopolous!!!
