A terrible doctor. I went in for back pain and what was clearly shown on my MRI to be a ruptured disk. He ignored anything to do with my back and said he wanted to test me for Lyme disease. I refused. Back issues later confirmed with a top neurosurgeon at ONS GREENWICH. STAY AWAY FROM HIS GUY.

This provider has no bedside manner and no respect for patients. He is rude and has consistently kept my parents waiting excessively (minimum 1 + hours) with no explanation or comment. Condescending. I urge anyone to find a doctor who remembers why he went into medicine and who is compassionate. This provider is far from that

Walks in and says to my father (who has dementia and Alzheimer's) “So has your memory gone down the drain yet”? I called prior to the appoinment to discuss some issues that were concerning me regarding my father, and I wanted them to be addressed at the appointment. I was assured that Dr. Xistris would get these notes and go through these concerns thoroughly. Not only did he not address any of my concerns, he didn't offer any help or guidence on how to deal with anything. WORST DOCTOR EVER

Dr. Xistris -unprofessional- didn't shake my hand or even introduce himself. He asked me several questions over & over - giving him the same response over & over. Clearly he was not listening to me. My follow up visit was rescheduled TWICE. He was rude and very unattentive. No bed side manners at all. No empathy. Never even addressed my other concerns. Put me on a prescription - took 3 phone calls and 2 days later to get called in - and it didn't help me at all. I have no faith in this practice.

Dr. Xistris is GREAT! I saw him for the 1st time today with complex issues that are often hard to communicate to doctors. He spent a very long time with me & I felt like he "got it"--he got me. I feel like I have an intelligent, compassionate, sympathetic ally in him & I rarely feel like that with docs. Another doc in the area ordered tests for me that he said I do not need. He knew many docs I've seen in the past & guessed correctly at some of the rough experiences I've had. Gentle & friendly!

After doing several Emg's with other doctors, Dr. Xistris was able to figure out the problem. I was then able to have my surgery.
