Patient Comments (5)
in Boynton Beach, FL |
Same complaints as others. The office staff is extremely rude. One time, I checked in and was waiting over 1 1/2 hrs when I got up to see where I was in line. The secretary didn't have me listed and insisted I didn't check in. Really? I just walked into a doctor's office and just sat down to wait? Dr. Spitz may be knowledgeable, it not caring for compassionate. He doesn't return calls and doesn't care enough to follow up, like he says he would. Cannot recommend!

If you have an hour to wait to be seen then go to him, if not, find someone else.
in East Williston, NY |
Had a 4 o'clock appointment as a new patient. I left my job 2 hours early to take a train from Manhattan to get back in time for my appointment. At 530, I was told there were still 2 people ahead of me. I left before being seen, as other patients informed me that this is typical of his office. One of the two ladies at the front desk was also extremely rude.
in Roslyn |
Office staff at entry are rude and unprofessional. Woman at desk was cleaning her phone and making herself comfortable instead of helping they three patients standing and waiting. Now waiting 45 min for my appointment. Had I not paid my copay, I would leave. Complete disrespect. Plus, after 5 months still unable to cure my condition. Will not be returning.
in Brooklyn, NY |
his scheduling appt is for cattle call making people wait with his experience looking at my rash he should know but instead took biopsy to charge more....because he did not give me an answer from the lab except its probably a food alergy.....this is what i get from a 40 years experience
