The admin staff is horrible. They say they will take care of your medication, but they don’t. I left a message twice about not being able to receive my medications and even the pharmacist expressed her annoyance with me about the office not being reliable. Also, the wait time for the doctor is ridiculous. They always claim “emergency” when they are late. If it’s an emergency, go to the hospital.

College Point, NY – Feb 04, 2016
Shady. The building is old and musty. My appointment was today. They called me Friday to try to change it to another date. I said no. They said I would still have my slot. I get there 20 minutes early. the waiting room is filled to capacity ( about 20 people) and there is a line formed outside the door. I go to sign in and the receptionist said I had a long wait because the doctor came late and there were 4 people ahead of me. I came from Manhattan for this? rude!!!! Never saw dr.
