Jericho, NY |
Unprofessional, rude, inappropriate comments, disorganized, sloppy office, terrible Doctor. Avoid this Doctor .
in New York |
This Dr.is rude, obnoxious, and doesn't return your calls in a timely manner. He's extremely disorganized, can't ever find anything as his office and paperwork is in such disarray . He's always sipping coffee or soda in the office and burping as he speaks. Very unprofessional ! He doesn't let the patient speak , always interrupting and sarcastic . His billing company made several mistakes and when I tried telling him he told me to deal with his billing company, not his issue. Terrible!!!!

Dr. Cusa acts as though he has all the time in the world to spend with you. He is never rushed with me and answers all my questions. He got me on a program which has me feeling much better. I highly recommend this dr.!
