Patient Reviews (2)
in Rock land, NY |
I brought my 3 month old child to dr. DeFelice because he was having severe difficulty eating and was experiencing what appears to be horrible reflux. Dr. D was extremely dismissive of my concerns and was uninterested in giving any form of real evaluation or diagnosis. She acted as if my concerns were unfounded even when I explained the severity of his discomfort. She perscribed more Meds, even though they were not working. if you would like a real Diagnosis DO NOT use Dr. Defelice!
The end result of her prescription was my child ending up in the ER the next day nearly dead from allergic reaction. The office visit was fast. Everyone was courteous except for the Dr. Was called in by a woman that I didn't even realize was the dr until she sat at her desk and began with the questions. Never introduced herself or asked if I was ok with another dr(assumed resident)..had to remove my child's clothing in one room put them on and take them off again in docs office.. Thx but no thx!
