Review of Dr. Simon

- in New York, NY |

I saw Dr. Simon three times, and the third time was the last. He gave extremely general advice and would make the kind of dismissive and shaming comments that keep patients from getting the treatment they need. He made me second-guess myself and my pain. He was often cold and unprepared, and I will no longer use my $35 copay on a doctor who doesn't listen to or respect me.

Review of Dr. Bergang

-New york, NY |

After months of pain and visits to s verbal doctors whose on,y solution was cortisone without diagnosing the reason for my pain, i found Dr. Bergang. She is smart, thorough, spends time to listen and hear. Something as simple as a back brace is helping and I’m feeling better. Thank you, Dr. Bergang!

Review of Dr. Bergang

Dr Bergang had been my doctor for several years I was recommended by Dr Shein, she is extremely patience super professional and really listens to your concerns. She is super knowledgeable and talks you through any treatment options to get you back on track.

Review of Dr. Shein


A three hour wait is so common here the staff has a Typed sign they put out warning the wait time is 2+ hours. Too bad I can’t upload the picture here for you to see it. Absolutely terrible ... overbooked and understaffed.

Review of Dr. Shein

-NY |

Warning!!! Give yourself at least 2-3+ hours for a 15-30 visit. This is the 3rd visit and have had to wait an average of 3 hours just to see Dr. David Shien for 15-30 mins. 2 of the visits were supposed to be at 8 am and both visits Dr. Shein called in late by 1/2 hour then showed up 1 hour late. Waiting room (20-24 capacity) is over packed with people waiting and waiting. Dr. Shein appears competent once you finally see him. Unless you cannot find a decent doctor or don't mind waiting for hours

Review of Dr. Shein


I have NEVER had a worse experience than I had with Dr. Shein.Waited for 3 1/2 hours,then he was rushing us out! He didn't ask questions,I had to suggest treatment for my Dad, which he administered, quickly and without any compassion. My Dad now has a giant bruise above and below the injection site, which he has NEVER had before when being treated. He then proceeded to talk into his phone to dictate his chart which is complete RUDE and didn't even speak to us or allow us to speak. HORRIBLE DOC!

Review of Dr. Bergang

- in Staten Island, NY |

I've been going to Dr. Bergang for years. I feel lucky to have found someone so experienced, knowledgeable, and compassionate. She is a doctor who is willing to listen and who takes time to explain everything. She's been there for me, keeping my pain at bay, always concerned and very patient.
