I really like Dr. Nussbaum. But his office staff is very rude and at times very obnoxious and incompetent. My biggest complaint is the fact that they charge you for missed appointments.....which I actually do understand. But they'll give you a 1PM appointment and without fail you sit in the waiting room for at least a good hour. When you do finally get called in to an examining room, you'll wait at least another half hour to 45 minutes before you see the Dr. Their time is important, yours isn't!

Dr. had me on only 1/2 my recommended dosage of blood pressure medicine. When I tried to refill my meds were changed at the pharmacy. When I called the office telling them they called in incorrect meds the Dr. explained I should have been taken twice a day instead of once a day. He said "my bad" Office staff are rude, nasty, and impatient. They have spoken badly to me about the Dr. They consistently overbook and there is ALWAYS a long wait to see the Dr. (2 hours is normal)

Dr. Nussbaum nor a staff member took my BP. Office staff extremely rude and disrespectful! I would recommend the doctor only with a caveat regarding the above issues. His location is (was) convenient, for me anyway.

10/26/16, 12:30 PM, I called to confirm next day's appoint - staff member was very impatient, sarcastic, clearly unprofessional, when I could not remember the name of the MD I was scheduled to see. (I'm a new pa., older guy, memory not too good.) Staff member was reluctantly identified as 'Mary Lin' by the off. mgr 'Sandy'. I expressed my dissatisfaction to Sandy, she seemed to be in denial, apologetic and dismissive all at once, she admonished me for not listening to my voicemail; go figure???
