    in Saugerties, NY |
    made appnt with all ins info given, 10 minutes before appnt, after a 2 hour ride, they tell me they don't par with my ins, they REFUSED to submit it...I end up paying $400 and get a bill for an additional $100, totaling $500 for not even 10 minutes of seeing the doctor and the first words out of his mouth was you will need to find a doctor that accepts your ins...his office made my appnt with my Ins info given to them!! Their mission statement is a JOKE. What a disgrace!!!!
    in Mt. Vernon, NY |
    His bedside manner and expertise were excellent. He genuinely cared, was patient, affable and quick. Staff went the extra mile to take good care of me. Even called maintenance back to resolve air conditioning issue while bringing a personal fan to exam room from another location. Will recommend him and his wonderful staff to others.
    in Hopewell Junction, NY |
    Completely impersonal. Barely spent anytime listening to my son's complaints. Took an xray and did not review results with us.
    in Bellmore, NY |
    Would never recommend. He did not have compassion for for our son, no respect for parents and very dismissive. Rude
    Yonkers, NY |
    Dr. Nelson had no interest in caring for my daughters. Misdiagnosed both my daughters for ankle and knee issued. They are now getting treatment for their pain elsewhere.
