South Windsor, CT |
Most arrogant doctor I've ever seen was my wife's visit but I was with her and my blood pressure must have been high he was rude belittling and treated her like she was on trial omg I did everything I could not to lose my temper he was such a jerk and his office was the same way.

I read the reviews and thought I'd trust more in his medical experience than the opinions of people who left reviews. There were 5 other people in the waiting room when I arrived, I waited a half hour and asked the others how long they were waiting. The flood doors opened, with them telling me of their past experiences of how long a wait there always is. Words like "unprofessional" and "rude" were thrown around. I left, never to return. There are lots of other doctors out there!

He's always at least an hour late & doesn't listen to his patients.

Dr. Krinsky likes to hear himself talk. What should be a 15-minute appt. turns into 40+ minutes. Upon seeing a copy of his notes, he is inaccurate & judgmental. At times he is rude & doesn't answer questions asked. After 3 vists (I'd seen his partner for 20 yrs) I'm seeking a new neuro doc. Dr. K never performs a neuro exam; just reads my chart aloud, going back many yrs. which isn't pertinent at this juncture. When I did a headache diary as requested he never looked at it. I wouldn't recommend.

He has a very pretentious attitude and doesn't take interest in patient
