Patient Comments (4)
Huntington Station, NY |
After spending over 1 hour in the waiting room, I waited another 15 in the exam room. Then she left again for another 10 minutes. I was at her office for for over 2 hours and only spent 10 minutes with her. Not helpful at all. I found Dr. Budnick to be condescending, unhelpful and uninterested in my medical problems. I do not recommend her.
Commack, NY |
I went to this doctor upon referral from my gynecologist because I was having problems and he believed she could help me. I have an unusual autoimmune disease, so to be fair, my case is a little complicated, but, she was more interested in talking to her fellow than listening to me. Upon exam, she was very rough for my condition, causing me much pain and bleeding. She also had a preconceived idea of what was wrong and when her hunch proved not be true, she couldn't wait to get me out.
Dr. Budnick is a very thorough in her exams. She puts the patient first, gives options for each option their benefits and risks. She addresses all concerns the patient may have. I found her to be very professional and had complete trust that she would individualize my treatment that suited what would be the best outcome for my body.
Long Island, NY |
Very unpleasant from the beginning. I sat in the waiting room for over an 1-1/2 hour. This happened On on all 4 visits. Be prepared to wait.Once situated in a room, I sat there in a paper gown for another 25 minutes. If what ails you is not cut and dry, she doesn't seem to want to be bothered. Horrible bedside manner. I am sceptical as to who left the previous glowing reviews as the wait time alone is off the charts. Thumbs down!
