    HORRIBLE! I wanted a second opinion from someone closer to home on Long Island as opposed to Manhattan where i normally see REAL doctors. I gave it a chance and patiently waited 2.5 hours! Which is unheard of! Mr Hershon, (i refuse to call him Doctor), goes on to tell me everything I was told before, which is fine. But then he proceeds to draw blood and at the exact secon he placed the needle in my arm, i felt a cramp run down my arm, which I told him immediately but he had no response. I did

    I waited two and a half hours before he finally sauntered in and asked what brings me in.
