Review of Dr. Askanase

-New York, NY |

She is very busy, when she will always find time to take care of her sick patients. Few physicians are this dedicated to their patients nowadays!!

Review of Dr. Askanase

-newyork, NY |

She was very rude no bedside manner at all. She may know what she was talking about but there was not a patient bond there at all. She basically said people have worse sytmtoms then you deal with it..... will not go back

Review of Dr. Dwyer

-

Misdiagnosed me. Had me on medicine I didn't need. I really felt he didn't know his stuff or is just tired and disinterested. I do not recommend to others.

Review of Dr. Dwyer

-NY |

Not interested in discussing test results and doesn’t hide his patient disinterest. I’ll discuss test results in detail with my GP and get a different referral.

Review of Dr. Dwyer

- in new york, NY |

I complained about the joint pain, and his answer was - "you are getting old". Really? Any recommendations, any pills, any suggestions???? and on the top of useless appointment he charged me more than $600 and did not accept my aetna insurance. Unbelievable!

Review of Dr. Geraldino-Pardilla

-

I had the unpleasant experience of visiting this "Dr" today at Columbia Doctors for Rheumatology. Webster's can't hold enough words to describe the complete unprofessionalism I had to endure for the entire 8min consultation before I left. She was rude, cocky and told me all my symptoms were completely normal without looking at my history. There's nothing worse than a 36yr old doctor who talked more than she listened. I would NOT recommend this hospital or provider. Horrible experience...move on

Review of Dr. Bathon

-New York |

On the first visit with Dr. Bathon she took the time to discuss all aspects of my case, was friendly and thorough. On the second visit, she remembered things we said the first time and confirmed that I did not have RA. She said I did not need a follow-up appointment, but that if I felt I needed her help in any way I should contact her. I highly recommend her.

Review of Dr. Askanase

-Astoria, NY |

Dr. Askanase treated me for undifferentiated connective tissue disease for a year. This was my first diagnosis, and she put me on Plaquenil right away. A year later, my arthritis was better, but I was still in significant pain. She prescribed 2 NSAIDs (somehow overlooking the fact that I was taking both at the same time) and eventually suggested I try a new drug that might put me into remission. After a few minutes, I realized she was describing Plaquenil--the drug I'd been on for a year already
