His late policy & office staff are ridiculous. As a new patient no one told me how horrible their parking situation is in their Hackensack location. Maybe 12 spots (some of which are handicap) for an entire medical building. I had to circle many times before I finally decided to park in the hospital parking lot near by. Needles to say, I was 25 minutes late and he REFUSED to see me. The front desk told me I had to reschedule. How many times do patients wait for drs way longer than that.

The doctor was rude, condescending, said the pain I was experiencing was all in my head (3 herniations, 2 bulging discs). He walked into the examination room after I was waiting for 40 minutes and without even looking at me says, You better not be here for medication, because I won't be giving you any. He concluded the visit stating, just go to the gym and get in shape. The staff was rude, ignored me, let 3 people cut in front of me at check out, said I couldn't leave until i checked out.

Very disappointed in the way I was treated by the doctors assistant, Diane. She has no empathy for patients and should not be in this line if work. Will not return to this doctor.
Oradell, NJ |
After advising my husband and me that the procedure he was recommending was no risk, my husband is now in worse pain than before. That indicates that he either didn't know what he was talking about or botched up with the hospital procedure or lied to us. Whichever the case may be, stay away from him.
