Review of Dr. Grewal

- in Valley Stream |

I saw Dr. Grewal - April 2018. He agreed "Laminectomy" surgery's what I needed. He said "my office" will get in touch once we get surgery approval/date and "May" he was booked full, so probably June. I waited, never got a call. So "I"called, found my "Surgery Request Approval" form was blank sitting in my folder & was never submitted. Long story short, Dr. Grewal moved on to his own practice, his new staff didn't even know if he still took my insurance. Have apt with new orthopedic surgeon.

Review of Dr. Kubiak


Since I have to place a star consider it a negative one. What kind of a doctor tells the patient I am not going to see you. His claim was that his xray machine was not working so he wouldn't even see me. He couldn't care less that I had a fracture. He could've looked at the film from radiologist with the report I brought. Why didn't you tell me before I came that there was an issue with the xray if you would not even see me. Terrible person.

Review of Dr. Kubiak


I came in for a fracture which needs to be taken care of right away. After dealing with the headache of them getting my referral which took an hour then they tell me that the X-ray machine is broken and the doctor would not see me. They couldn’t tell me this before. It tells you the character of such a doctor. Some.are there to take care of patients and some are just nasty and arrogant who couldn’t care less that I have a fracture and have been waiting without notifying me before

I went to the deer park location. this place is terrible. looks like the average wait time is 2 hours!!! the worst part is it is in a. basement with no elevator for people who suffer from back and knee pain. the employees are miserable and so are the patients. avoid this place

Review of Dr. Kubiak

-Bronx NY |

Avoid this place at all costs. I got hit by a car when I was 8-9 years old. Ive had knee problems ever since and was supposed to get surgery. I came here now, at age 22 years old for the pain i go through every single day. Most times I cannot even walk because the pain is unbearable. The woman who works there told me the MRI says there is nothing wrong with my knees. and to go therapy. I am getting a second opinion. The staff also has a disgusting additude and seems bothered and rushes you!

Review of Dr. Hecht

- in Medford, NY |

This guy is the most un professional doctor. I went to him for an emg he was so rude and talked to his staff like they were idiots. As for me he I feel like I was rushed and he didn't even ask symptoms or how I was feeling. I have not 1 positive thing to say about this guy. He should lose his license or go to some kind of sensitivity training.

Review of Dr. Hecht

-New York, NY |

I have never been to a doctor so rude and un-personable. He walked in the room and never even acknowledged that i was there, just started talking about my test results. Never asked how i was doing, the level of pain I was experiencing or discussed solutions for healing and comfort. He originally did not believe i was even truly injured until the MRI proved him wrong. He had the nerve to say "I guess your not just imagining this!" will not be returning to this practice.

Review of Dr. Hecht

- in New York |

I needed Physical Therapy and had to see Dr Hecht in the Shirley office, What a rude, condescending man!! He spent maybe a minute with me, didnt ask me anything, I coudnt say anything all he did was talk down to me when I tried to explain how I felt. Not to mention how nasty he is with the staff. Everybody in the office is afraid of this man! while there he manage to not only be condescending, nasty and rude to me but everyone in staff. I love doing physical Therapy there. Refuse to see him
