Horrible, they never answer the phone when you call or return your phone calls when you leave messages. One receptionist who answered the phone was very rude and hung up on me without even ending our conversation. There are never appointment slots available and they always want you to come in for a refill. Horrible service.

I've been trying to get in touch with the Dr. Vando Harlem office for weeks. I've left voicemails, sent emails, Facebook messages, left comments on their Facebook wall, my pharmacist has tried to contact twice, and called the other location...no response as of 7:13pm on June 17th. According to another reviewer, the Harlem office has closed. Where was the notification? A little letter, call, or email to let your patients know would have been a kind gesture so we could make other arrangements. I have no medication and my therapist's recommendation for a new doctor can't see me until July. This is completely unacceptable! I will be filing a complaint with the NY Dept of Health.

Harlem office closed and my NP provider left the practice. The office NEVER informed me, RARELY returned my calls (LITERALLY 1:10 calls), never scheduled a follow up, refused to refill my medication without an appointment and never actually offered me an appointment. Currently out of medication and hoping I can find a new doctor in the next few days. INCREDIBLY irresponsible.

Waited almost 2 hours, only to be seen by a nurse to do an intake, demanding a urine test and a referral to get bloodwork. I made an appointment with the MD and was not told this over the phone. My appointment was rescheduled numerous times. The front desk/phone staff were incredibly rude and refused to take any responsibility for the lack of efficient scheduling. In addition I saw insects crawling on the furniture in the lobby, which may have been bedbugs.

I have to give this Dr. a 5 star. He really knows how to help. I feel much better and he has given me all the tools that I need. Very professional and kind. I waited for 20 minutes for my appointment which was not long at all.

I traveled an hour to Dr.Vando. After waiting for an hour at the actual office, I was informed that I would need to do several medical examinations that I was never aware about. Additionally, the front desk continued to explain that there was only one patient before me when there were five.
