Review of Dr. Malamood

- in CORINTH, NY |

I wanna start by saying this is the worst Gi i have ever seen and I've seen alot. Dr Malamood if you can even call him a doctor was very condescending towards me, did not review any of my images from the hospital and rushed out the door on several occasions. I suffer from chronic pancreatitis and this jerk literally told me that i was seeking drugs and theres nothing he could do to help me. No procedure or surgery or nothing this guy is a joke. Please do your research and don't go to Dr Malamood

Review of Dr. Gusten

-

OMG, finally a doctor who actually listens and takes time with you and doesn't consider you a difficult patient if you have questions. My visit with him was so refreshing. When I apologized for being difficult because I am used to doctors labelling me such, he said I was in tune with and aware of my body and that I researched and had knowledge about my problems and that was good. He also carefully explained everything to me instead of acting annoyed and impatient. Keeper!

Review of Dr. Gusten

Dr Gusten is extremely cautions and careful. He clearly cares a great deal about his patients and their health outcomes. When asked, he will go in to whatever detail necessary to explain conditions and options.

Review of Dr. Malamood

-

If you have an appointment cancel now. I have severe stomach,problems, may die or not I'll never know.. Late because office mix up accused of lying berated for five minutes because late. Doc, said too much info to go over, if I was so late please take time to go over my record. I tried to leave and counseled on constipation so he could bill my insurance. I had to wait three months for the appointment. Total bully, throwing his weight around. Can not picture this's guy even a Doc. Run away!

Review of Dr. Belova

-Malta, NY |

Dr. Belova is terrific. She's clearly well trained and skilled. Her advice is sound. She is also especially kind and ever cheerful. Given her speciality, that's an unexpected combination. I bless my good fortune in finding Dr. Belova. I went to her carrying fear and dread based on a scary ,family history. She has left well cared for and confident. God bless her.

Review of Dr. Northrop

-

I would not recommend this doctor to my family. She made me feel like my stomach and intestinal issues were all in my head. After seeing a specialist who took the time to talk to me, I was finally given a diagnosis and a treatment plan. Felt like she didn't care about me at all.

He is an excellent doctor with a great staff. He explained the procedure very well and then explained the results and gave me some things I can do to keep myself healthy. Overall a great experience.

Review of Dr. Boyar

-Clifton Park, NY |

Great Doctor! I have been to see him for a couple of years now and really like him. His staff is very patient, understanding and helpful. Dr. Boyer is very patient and very knowledgeable at what he does. I have had lower and upper GI problems for years prior to seeing Dr. Boyer. Now after be treated by him for the last 3 years I am fine. He also believes in having a healthy system by eating yogurt, taking probiotics and just plan eating right. I would highly recommend him!

Dr. Gusten is attentive, and provides great insight into problems. He is not insulted when you present him with possibilities, but takes them into consideration. Post care treatment is top notch.

Review of Dr. Defrancisco

- in Saratoga Springs, NY |

I was assigned Dr. DeFrancisco by Saratoga Hospital Emergency Room two years ago for chest pain and stomach pain, I can't tell you the amount of visits to him or the emergency room but as of today I am still suffering in pain and Dr. DeFrancisco's answer to me is "it's in your head", this I was told as I was down 30 lbs from no appetite and pain, I asked if he thought I could have Cancer? "NO" his response, well at the age of 53 I have cancer, and Dr. DeFrancisco will take my call. KARMA!
