Patient Comments (1)
in Queens,NY |
From the first visit he was impolite/rude. Without even informing me of my diagnosis he told me what I needed to do. On my second visit, he had a waiting room full of patients and he came out to ask the receptionist what time he was scheduled for lunch. She informed him and he said bye and was about to leave. Later in the waiting area in front of patients he asked me what's up. A staff member told him he was not supposed to talk to patients in the waiting area and he ignored her and kept talking
I do believe this comment was intended for a different provider as I have never, in my entire career, ever treated patients as this one describes. I go out of my way for patients all the time and make sure they are satisfied after each visit with me. I pride myself on my patient rapport. Thanks-Dr Gewirtz
