Patient Comments (4)
in Brooklyn, NY |
I got cataract removal surgery on 03/28/17 that has been performed by Dr David Pinhas. Something did not go so well, I had to visit a doctor for eye drops change, need to have a another procedure on 05/16, 2017, which is understandable, but the eye still hurts, irritated, I keep calling the office several times, no response from the stuff, front desk secretaries absolutely unprofessional, irresponsible, it is so frustrating, and in the end of the day I need to visit another doctor

I was a patient of Dr. Pinhas for over 15 years, due to my schedule I could not attend his office as often, when I called the office on 10/31/2016 with an emergency front desk was extremely rude, nasty and very disdainful, I told them that I have emergency and I really need to see the Dr. they told me that because I have not seen Dr. for more than a couple of years they can not accept me and I have to register and make an appointment as a new patient, so I insisted that they ask a Dr. to see

He has compassion and caring. Just loves to get to the root of the problem and make you well.
in Staten Island, NY |
Despite many calls I made having a few conversations with office staff by the name of Veronica and other, faxing authorization form and confirming such on the phone, scheduling an appointment, when I have arrived in time on the date of scheduled appointment I was not allowed to see a doctor. I was told that my insurance is not accepted. I was turned down without saying sorry and admitting their mistake.
