Review of Dr. Agnew

- in New York, NY |

I was crying when I came in. At the end of my rope after seeing a doctor whose bedside manner left a lot to be desired. They got my in about an hour after I called for an appointment, calmed me down and did a quick in-office procedure. From the front desk staff to Suzanne, the nurse practitioner, to Dr. Agnew––everyone here is kind, knowledgeable, patient and incredible. Five stars. If you are suffering, call them.

Review of Dr. Garbus

- in Deer Park, NY |

You won't find a better or more compassionate physician. Dr. Garbus and his staff put you immediately at ease. I am always treated with respect and courtesy. Dr. Garbus performed a surgical procedure on me several years ago and I see him yearly for a check-up or as needed. Technically, Dr. Garbus is brilliant, but he is so much more than that. Dr. Garbus truly cares about his patients. He clearly educates you about your condition and explains all care options. Dr. Garbus is the best!

Review of Dr. Agnew

- in Floral Park, NY |

Dr. Agnew performed my mom’s surgery, which gave her a new lease on life. Dr. Agnew is a wonderful Dr. She is kind, compassionate, and extremely capable. She made my mom feel comfortable with a very embarrassing situation. Also if you want a doctor that returns your calls promptly and is consistently reliable, Dr. Agnew is the doctor for you.

Review of Dr. Garbus

-New York, NY |

Dr. Garbus is a wonderful doctor. His congenial personality and easy going ways go a long way to easing a patient’s stress. He thoroughly explains everything. The main issue is that both times I’ve been here I’ve waited over an hour. This is unacceptable. My appointment shouldn’t be 2 hours including meeting with the doctor!!!!

Review of Dr. Agnew

- in Franklin Square, NY |

Wonderful bedside manner from both the assistants and Dr. Agnew. She took her time and explained everything to me. She answered all my questions and really helped me with what I should do moving forward. Very knowledgeable, caring and kind. I will def use her for when I may need her in the future. As a new patient I only waited about 20 mins as well.
