in Ridgewood, NJ |
He was thorough but quick. A little too quick. I felt like he was rushed and didn't feel comfortable asking questions since he was in such a hurry. I understand that doctors are busy BUT try to focus on each patient individually and give each of them the time they deserve.
in Ridgewood, NJ |
Very responsive-always in a day or so. Very willing to look at research-I mentioned a procedure-he quickly reviewed the abstract, and was willing to use it. Responds patiently and rapidly. Flexible. Great technology in his clinic-my information is easy to access on patient portal at Valley. Excellent staff-concerned and caring. Excellent care.

I've been a patient of his for more than 10 years and I not only adore him, but his whole staff as well! Caring doctor-lots of knowledge and never made me feel ignorant because I do not speak science!
