This so called doctor shows more concern for his staff which by the way is extremely rude than for his patients.

I saw Dr Brandt and discussed with him my concern about being on plaquenil too long because it can cause you to too lose your vision. I wanted to be switched to another medication. My lab tests clearly say I'm positive for lupus. He tried to say the lab tests were normal and I can take medication if I feel like it but if I don't want to it doesn't matter. He didn't refill my prescription, I had to get a prescription from my primary physician. They refused to switch me to another doctor RUDE!

Today was supposed to be my first appointment with Dr. Brandt. After driving all the way to the office, I walked into an empty lobby with the lights turned off. Dr Brandt had decided to take the day off, and did not feel it necessary to call his patients to alert us to not drive in. I cannot think of a more thoughtless, rude, insane thing for a doctor to do. I am going to make it my number one priority this week to let every current and future patient know what a horrible office this is.

I've been a patient of Dr. Brandt's for about 2 and half years. He's an excellent doctor, I just wish his staff was up to par. The North Bergen office rarely answers phones (my pharmacist even had difficulty getting through), so scheduling appointments isn't the easiest task. It's a shame really because his Jersey City staff is always so courteous when I get transferred to them, if it wasn't so far away I'd transfer. I'm actually looking for a new rheumatologist.
