Whenever I need to make an appointment it's never a problem The staff are courteous, professional and caring Dr Best has always been on point with my medical conditions and treatment (which are many) I can ask him anything and not feel embarrassed There are many primary care physicians in Suffolk County, but I choose to travel from Patchogue to Pt Jefferson to receive care Why ? Because just like his name, he truly is "The Best"
