Patient Comments (2)
in Albany, NY |
Office is unresponsive. Scripts IF & WHEN they are finally sent are often inaccurate. Getting the scripts fixed is next to impossible since Eleanor the Dr's helper never admits mistakes and refuses to fix anything. This last time was the final straw. They refused to correct a prescription for insulin that I was running out of! 4 days after I requested a call from the dr. and corrections to 2 scripts. Dr. never called and scripts never fixed. Complained to office manager and kicked out! RUN!!!
Always have to wait at least 30 min up to 1 and 1/2 hours in room. He is matter of fact. Doesn't take time to ask how you are feeling. Stuck on lab numbers. Not willing to be progressive. Stuck on synthetic drugs. Would not recommend him.
