Both doctors are too old and should not be practicing, Nera Sakowitz totally sucks, she's only worried about scheduling unnecessary diagnostic tests so they can bill the insurance companies, they are frauds and ripping off the system.

Horrible just horrible ! they refuse to release records unless the doc speaks to the doc himself. What kind of office doest utalize or have receptionist. how many docs you know that can come to the phone everytime when he wants records on a patient. Maybe a small practice with 2 employees but this office is disgusting and poor excuse. The license needs to be revoked ASAP. Disgusting !

Dr. Nera Sakowitz is the most rude, unprofessional, condescending, arrogant, obnoxious individual I have ever came across. According to her staff she googles patient symptoms and treatments. The office is so messy and gross, the staff clueless and the doctors worried about insurance claims more than patient care.. total garbage!

The worst run office I have ever experienced. The office takes blood tests and EKGS and never gives you the results. It is utterly amazing that anything could be found in this office including patients files. The office staff needs to change their attitude toward their patients.Will never go back.
