The Worst!! Incompetent, uncaring and ignorant. Northwell should be ashamed letting this guy into its practice!

Do not waist your time with this doctor. I was with him for few months and its been only negative experience. He misdiagnosed me and totally scared me at my first visit. Then when I googled everything and called him to discuss he didn't even remember he gave this diagnosis to me. Afterwords he sent wrong prescription to my pharmacy - had to call 10 times to get someone to change it. Every time I had to leave my number and also my pharmacy number. Save your time and nerves and go elsewhere.

Extremely irresponsible and unreliable. I show up as a new patient and his secretary tells me his isn't in the office and they tried to call me. They never asked for my number so when I asked who she called she gave me a random number. She told me to wait around to see another doctor and after an hour the doctor said he didn't want to see me. I asked her why and she shrugged her shoulders. EXTREMELY NASTY. I told her I would not be returning and finding a new doc and she couldn't care less.

When Busta asked me if I ever fractured/broken a bone, I told him I broke my patella (kneecap). He seemed argumentative and tried to convince me that the patella is not a bone! I kept pointing at my kneecap and he slowly backtracked his position. Besides a prescription for bloodwork and a whopping bill, the only thing that was memorable from my visit with Busta was thinking how in the world can someone be a doctor and not know that the kneecap is a bone.
