St James, NY |
Great great Doctor... but good luck trying to get through to the office to speak to someone at the office if you need help with urgent matter. Literally spent 90 minutes calling and pressing every prompt to no avail. they have a call center that handles all their calls but only for scheduling appointments they cannot help you if you have a real problem or you are trying to contact the doctor. Cannot call office directly and get a live person

Love Dr Fastenberg!!! He's he nicest and so thorough. He is worth the wait!! I've always had psoriasis since I was 13 and went to numerous dermatologists in the smithtown area some were ok some not ok. I now live in merrick and I will only go to dr fastenberg and have seen him for the past 8 years. When I didn't have insurance he was kind enough to hook me up with samples and always a wealth of information on any new medicines that might help. I recommend him to all my friends and family!

I had my first appointment with Dr. Fastenberg. He was friendly, thorough and attentive to my questions and concerns. He made me feel relaxed and comfortable. A week after a biopsy, he called me to make sure everything was okay. Will definitely be seeing this doctor again.
Absolutely Terrible & unprofessional. I was referred to this office & needed an appt ASAP as per doc.I was given mis-information, complete run around, even spoke to the office manager who was rude & not helpful.I had my primary care doctor speak to them directly when He sent the referral over to get the info they needed. Call to schedule they tell me they don't have the info they need What?u just talked to the doc. a week later I call to Schedule now tell me they don't even take my insurance!
