Brooklyn, NY |
Excellent doctor, very patient and professional. His staff is also very helpful and professional at all times. Highly recommended.
in Brooklyn, NY |
i was a patient many years ago when i was a child/teen. now in my 30's. i had always been my own advocate and done my own research. i asked for a blood test because i believed i had hypothyroidism. he said i dont and i didnt need it. after i insisted and insisted, he caught an attitude and said take the test. well, the test came back and i was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. if i wouldnt have insisted, i would never have known. he didnt take time to listen to me and i would never recommend him.
