Patient Comments (5)
Horrible. Made the most crooked incision on my c section and I'm left with so much pain months and months later. But the worst part was he messed up my son's circumcision so bad that I had to take him to a pediatric urologist and he probably has to be recircumcised. Absolutely awful !!! Would not recommend.

I've seen him for years and he delivered my son- very diligent and detailed oriented I would recommend him to others
in Garden city, ny |
Was extremely disappointed with his professionalism and attitude toward his patients. He disagreed with a decision I made regarding my own health and rather than understanding he developed an attitude and spoke down to me. Then he continued to criticize and insult me to his staff when he left the room. I just happened to overhear it.
in Merrick, NY |
Excellent Doctor. Professional, caring and very thorough. I would highly recommend him!
New York, NY |
He came in did not introduce himself. Seemed distant and unconcerned. Abrupt cold and abrasive. The older Indian nurse who worked there was no better. Her general attitude was what does she want as if I bothered her in some way. For some reason she couldn't stop laughing under her breath. Very unprofessional. Simply awful. Would not recommend.
