Patient Comments (5)
NYC |
Detailed comprehensive doctor.
in New York, NY |
His staff won't squeeze you in if you get sick and need to come in! He is fine for scheduled appt but can be very inconsiderate if you need him in an emergency. Even the girl who answers the phone with the accent, just to identify because there are 2 girls, she can be abrupt and rude. Fine for routine yearly checkup but if you need him on a day you do not have an appointment, they will not let you come in. That is when you really need the doctor. Any doctor can see you for yearly check up
Forest Hills, NY |
A superior physician, who is extremely knowledgeable, careful, and takes the time to explain things thoroughly. My father, a retired surgeon, uses him as well and gives him the highest recommendation, which he does not give lightly.
New York, NY |
Extremely diligent in listening and diagnosing problem.
Spends extraordinary amount of time with patients for diagnosis and treatment. Very patient in explaining technical details and answering questions. Expressed great concern for patient well-being.
