He treated me for ulcerative colitis. He didn’t do a thing for me except load me with medicine. The waiting room was always crowded and always two hours minimum. He had this horrible god complex too.
Staff is rude ... I was told to come in early and waited 2 hours to see the physician ... the physician was wonderful for the 5 minutes I was seen but after that the staff worker that codes the prescriptions had an attitude and was slamming things ... doctor was also being shadowed by someone young who I had no idea who he was ... I didn't know if he was qualified to be there . I couldn't even review all of my issues . A shame a great doctor Should have to suffer because of staff

Worst office staff in the world. Not sure if Dr Megna is aware of the unprofessional staff he employs and how quickly they are to not make you an appointment if you have any balance that is due. What kind of doctor's office turns you away for an appointment that they said was medically necessary, because of a no show that they claim from 2013, but can't show me the registered receipt letter that I supposedly signed telling me they charged me $100.00 back then. Disgusting people!!

Incredible doctor and staff. They always have time for you. Dr. Megna is exceptional. He's very kind, thorough, and willing and able to help. He's down to earth, and is always going to go the extra mile. Don't believe any of the reviews that say otherwise. If you have questions all you have to do is ask, and he will elaborate. I've been seeing dr. Megna since I was 16, and I will never trust any other Doctor the way I trust him.

Dr.Megna doesn't have bedside manner,not friendly doesn't explain the diagnosis well I have to google everything, he was highly recommended to us.. My husband have stageIV Esophagitis erosion he handed us the findings and rushed us out. I'm not sure if I should go back to him.
in S. I. NY |
I had a severe problem with my esophagus and Dr. Megna was the only Doctor determined to fine a solution. He did. Everyone tough I would die but I didn't. Dr. Megna became my Guardian Angel. The last time I saw him, he say I would know when to call him. Well 8 years later I did and because it was 8 years, HE REFUSED TO SEE ME. SO HERE I AM IN THE HOSPITAL WAITING FOR STRANGER AND PRAY HE CAN HELP. MEGNA WAS MY GUARDIAN ANGEL OF MEDICINE BUT TODAY HE IS JUST A REGULAR Joe. No Guardian Angel!!!
