I've been a patient of Dr. Axelrad for about 16 years. He's very professional and easy to talk to. He puts you at ease which is important when talking about some of this stuff. The televisit went just fine. Very prompt and just like talking to him at the office. I've had four colonoscopy procedures with him over the years which went smoothly....staff was very nice and calming, no issues with procedure or anesthesia.

Dr. Axelrad is a fine physician. The problem is the the totally inept office staff. Making an appointment is a time consuming process of calling and waiting. Also three times I had to answer the same questions and complete the same forms. HIRE SOME QUALIFIED STAFF, PLEASE!!!
