Patient Comments (2)
Albany, NY |
Dr. Longo is good; patient in explaining your condition and answering your clarifications. Unfortunately, the entire office staff, including the receptionists, assistants are very very unprofessional. Not friendly, no patience and very rude, like they are doing you a favor. And the excrutiatingly painful long period that I was there (2hours!), they gave no updates, walked in on the doctor while he was examining and were abrupt. I would not recommend this place because of staff, not the doctor.

Receptionist who answers the phone is beyond rude. She accuses you of arguing with her when you pose a question. She NEVER returns a call as she states she will. Office is like an assembly line. No personalization by dr. You see him for 3 -5 minutes tops. Has paraprofessionals do the rest. Do not even consider asking to be rescheduled an appt., even though they leave a message on your phone instructing you to call, if you need to. If you to, (even 48hrs b4), it is considered a no show.
