Patient Comments (2)
in East Elmhurst |
I highly recommend Dr Atallah-Lajam to all my family and friends. He is a great cardiologist and surgeon. His demeanor and knowledge defines him. Courteous and very thorough every time I come to see him. Though we recommend him please be wary of some of the office staff. I have been greatly disappointed at the Mount Sinai office staff. Front desk service is the worst I've ever seen at any doctor's office. Making an appointment feels like a gamble. Be prepared to wait on the phone and office line

I have already been on hold for 31 minutes and haven't spoken to a receptionist yet. Waiting to change an appointment, most likely they will have none by the time I get to speak to some one. Horrible.
