Patient Comments (6)
New York. |
Rude. Impatient. Hurried through the examination and got frustrated and dismissed as he couldn’t cope or didn’t know how to diagnose. Louzy Doctor. Waited over an hour in the waiting room. Can’t believe he had a practice. I am so upset and hurt. Still waiting to be seen by another doctor. He didn’t care to treat a patient. How non caring dinyuh have to be.
Great Neck, NY |
He was so rude and obnoxious as was the rest of his staff from the receptionists to the nurses. The one nurse that was actually being nice, he ended up yelling at her in front of me for almost sending me to another exam room accidentally. I happen to have very sensitive eyes, He was impatient really hurst my eyes when he was applying drops in them. The person that answers the phone and is located in the Hicksville office was really nice too.
Plainview, NY |
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.
Roslyn, New York |
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!
Great Neck, NY |
I like the physician. Professional and knows his stuff- not warm and fuzzy. My kind of Doctor.
