Patient Comments (4)
Brooklyn, NY |
I arrived 10 mins early for my appointment. The waiting room was very small and completely packed, with not one available seat. A few other patients and I had to sit in small folding chairs, practically on top of each other. As it turns out, the doctor wasn't even in the office yet. After an hour of waiting, and no promise of being seen any time soon, I had to leave. I then found out that almost all patients in the waiting room were scheduled for the same exact time. Completely unprofessional.

Doesn't want to be bothered with patients who's diagnoses not jumping at him. Dr. Iswara spends more time with his back to you typing into computer than talking to you. Does not diagnose gives antinausia meds as bandage.
