    We waited for 2 1/2 hours and were never seen by the doctor. An emergency came in which I totally understand but this was not the only excuse. We were told the computers were down and then that he had no nursing staff today. Totally unprofessional!!!! Will meet use again.

    This Doctor is literally a humanitarian that truly understands the human condition and potential. Please go to visit him if humanly possible or make it possible!
    in Rego Park, NY |
    Dr. Godfried was late 1 hour and 45 minutes, didn't apologize, there was no real introduction or proper greeting and when he read the existing x-rays that were in the system he provided us with an erroneous calculation of the spine's deviation. Upon my husband's request he concluded that he made a mistake and that the spine deviation was different that the one he calculated at first.
