What People Say About Dr. Henry Brystowski, MD

Dr. Brystowski was very dismissive from the beginning of my first and subsequently last appointment. When he walked into my room he said,” You look fine to me. Why are you here?” What kind of rheumatologist diagnoses a patient on looks?! I had been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease years ago by a different doctor. I went into remission. I relocated, started having symptoms again and searched for a new doctor. His demeanor was that of someone in a hurry and completely annoyed. He didn’t ask me any real questions and was very dismissive. He ordered several lab tests without explaining anything. Several labs came back abnormal and he never followed up. I decided to never return. I do not recommend this doctor. Maybe it’s time for him to retire.

I was very impressed with this doctor, appointment time was very fast, he listened ,explained and took necessary tests to diagnose problem. and followed up with a phone call . which very few Doctors would do. His staff was very pleasant, professional and the x-ray tech was very pleasant . I would highly recommend Dr Brystowski

Wait time was very long. Also saw doctor on a Friday morning and office was suppose to call in a script, but failed to do so. when office was contacted about this was told only doctor can call in scripts! Ask to speak to a manager and was told no!!!! Also never did any blood work. Also the receptionist was very rude. Will never go back to this Physician again!
