What People Say About Dr. Joseph Cardinale, MD
Reply
This is a doctor/practice review of Orlin and Cohen (Specifically Dr Cardinale from Merrick). I met him for the first time on my birthday Aug 15. We agreed I needed a shot to my spine for pain. I was scared and said I would call him asap when I get my nerve up. He said no problem. I called back in October to schedule the shot. I was told I had to see him again because his notes didn't say I could have the shot. I waited a few week until Nov 2 to see him again. I explained that I lost weeks (in pain) to see him to again discuss the shot we already agreed on. I said it's a $40 copay everytime I see him. He left me in the exam room to speak to the office mgr who agreed to write off/ adjust the copay because he didn't write good enough notes. He even said, I am so sorry, it was my fault. I was scheduled for the shot 2 weeks later I think. I have been receiving bills for the day he said would be written off. I have called every time and to no avail. The customer service reps

As a Healthcare professional it was a major disappointment that I was treated as a # in a factory! No compassion/empathy, or listening skills toward my pain. In-correct information is passed on to insurance company, including wrong location of anatomical concern. I was requested to seek a consult with another specialty as requirement to pursue the recommended treatment by Dr Cardinale. He was to f/u so all would be approved to proceed; which he never did even after many phone calls/e-mails.
