Dr. Jurkowitz is disorganized and lacked concern for my medical issue. He is very disorganized with stacks of patient records on his desk. His demeanor is that of a tired lack luster person &lazy. He refused to fulfill the authorized referral by doing any legitimate exam, instead he took a ink pen and ran it up/down my arms & legs (3min) mumbling abt wanting my medical history. Found out he did a Lit Rev based on my records in lieu of real examination. NO integrity, bad treatment; wasted my time

This was the worst experience I've ever had with a doctor in my life. I should've walked out when I saw the extreme disorganization of files and records in his office. There were piles all over the floors, on desks, it looked like a hoarder?s home. Then he was arrogant and snarky, not acknowledging my concerns about why my doctor recommended I see a Neurologist in the first place. Ultimately, he told me to get an MRI for M.S., which I had no symptoms for or issues about.
