Patient Comments (5)
in Westbury, NY |
I've been seeing her for the past 4 years. From the moment I met her I was so impressed with her knowledge and her ability to explain my diagnosis to me. She never rushes me, always taking as much time as necessary until I am satisfied with both the reason I came in to see her and the plan (that she includes me in) is totally understood by me. She has a wonderful bedside manner and makes herself available to communicate with me either by phone or email always getting back promptly.

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

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.
