Only gave one star because i cant leave zero. Horrible dr. Cannot get a word in edgewise she is so full of herself. Mishandled my case when i needed surgery, she said that according to a graph she printed on the internet i was not a candidate for surgery! Couldnt believe what i was seeing even after i was trying to tell her how horrible i was feeling. Second opinion lets just say strongly disagreed. Dont walk from her. RUN

Very difficult to schedule an appointment with staff
Hempstead, NY |
It is really really hard to schedule an appointment. The staff ask me to send in a blood work, which I will do. When I asked when I will be able to schedule an appointment, she said it will be depending on my blood work and see how emergent the situation is.I said my blood work was done a while ago so it probably doesn't show the emergency. So the staff asked me to see my primary doctor first. blablabla. I want to schedule an appointment with Dr. Bredefeld. Why do you ask to see another doctor?

I have been a type 1 diabetic since 1989 and have seen many endocrinologists over that time frame, Dr Bredefeld is by far the best I?ve ever experienced in all those years. She is very caring, listens and takes her time to explain all the issues and answers every question. I am very fortunate to have her treating me for my condition but I must add that the entire Staff at Winthrop are all of the same caliber as Dr. Bredefeld and I highly recommend all of them as well.
She listens. Takes the time to educate and cares. I have been a patient of hers for several years. She is up to date on her medical information and stands behind,her research findings. She is polite and respectful. Absolutely recommend her.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
