    If you are willing to put up with rude, inept front office personnel, this is the place to go. Walked out after confrontation and arrogance by clerical manning the front desk. No one should have to be subject to this. Have gotten a new doctor.

    Office saw me as an emergency. Treated my condition and helped me. Very professional. Recommend
    Syosset, NY |
    Failed to diagnose that my eye was bleeding internally (examining me twice in 10 days). Had I not gone to a different doctor, I would have been blind in that eye!

    I like the physician. Professional and knows his stuff- not warm and fuzzy. My kind of Doctor.
