I had the pleasure of meeting Dr Dokukin when he took over for Dr Finklestien ( Rest in Pease Dr Finklestien) Dr Dokukin is a very warm & caring Dr, he listens to his patients and doesn't rush to get to the next patient he may have, he has been my Dr ever since and hopefully for many more years to come,,,can't forget the staff,,,there like extended family to me,,, if you go in not feeling to good you will most likely leave laughing or at least with a smile on your face :)

Dr Dokukin is a paid Dr on a utilization review board. My case came before him and he denied my Dr's medical request for an epidural and pain cream. He feels it necessary to appease his bread source rather than do the right thing as a Dr. I have had 23 epidurals over several years. They are not enjoyable. I asked my Dr for aternatives to pain pills because they are giving me mood swings and straining my marriage. This Dr has denied me the very thing he would request if I was his patient.

Scheduled to see him for two weeks. Showed up for the appointment only to find he never sees patient at that location on that day of the week. The appointment and location was confirmed twice prior to our arrival. He was contacted by an associate 3 times and refused to call us to rectify the situation. I work in the same industry and would never treat someone this way. Apparently his lack of scheduling ability and concern are our fault. His callousness speaks volumes.
