My first visit was a revelation. Doctor did the most complete questionnaire, history, examination and lung function tests. Staff was incredible my pharmacist had the new Rx while I was still in the parking lot. Doctor explains things very well

Very efficient and to the point. I love the fact he gives you a copy of everything he said. In one visit he diagnosed part of my problem and gave steps to correct. The diagnosis and steps worked! He ordered a necessary test and found an issue my primary care doc had never even looked into. Both my husband and I are very pleased with his care and would highly recommend him.

Not all needed information was given prior to appointment. Office staff very rude, office polices and procedures are time consuming. Appointment is buffered by 45 mins, this is not communicated.

I recommend Dr. Mintz to everyone that I know --- he is kind, professional, thorough, and leaves no question unanswered. He and his team always make an effort to find an appointment time that fits my schedule, and will always call when there is a cancellation. I really appreciate that I never feel rushed during an appointment, and that he is discerning between what a patient NEEDS and what would be a (usually very expensive) nice to have. Fantastic experience.

Dr. Mintz has been my doctor for over 15 years. Anybidy you stay with that long must be good at what he does. Very informative, thorough, caring. Does not run a bunch of tests just to cover himself. Has kept my asthma and other allergy /breathing / sinus issues in check. Highly recommend!

The assistant couldn't read very simple medication I wrote, and had attitude about it. The other comment about listening is correct. I tried to explain why I was there when asked in the best way I could and when I got to the second sentence explaining what I think is happening, again as experience, he cut me off and said something to the effect of... If you're going to diagnose this, I'll go swimming. No thanks. I know there's another issue and he did not diagnose it.

very efficient and thorough, reminds me to do immunizations and other items. I had been to three doctors prior to Dr. Mintz for the same issue, he solved the problem and have been symptom free for three years. Friendly and professional.

Will not communicate with primary care doctor. Asks a question and then talked over me while I was answering the question. Fairly rude.
