We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Cramped waiting room; crowded. My son waited over an hour to see the dr. for his first visit. Seems like they overbook.

I CAN'T EVEN! I've been going to Gendel, I can't even call him a doctor. He will NOT call in refills of my blood pressure medicine or Beta- Blocker which you can not stop taking cold turkey and this doesn't seem to phase him at all. It's blood pressure meds folks not pain pills. During the Covid 19 quarantine. He was making me and from what I heard others say, come in two to three times a week, you know that's all about the money. His waiting room is to small no one was six feet about and the staff weren't wearing masks. During this time since I'm sure business was down he tired to schedule me for all kinds of tests, even did my physical at that time. All my friednds and family were doing their appointments via Zoom ( you guessed it Gendel isn't their doctor) I've read other reviews about him not refilling blood pressure meds and I just don't get how a doctor can do this and better yet get away with it.

I have been a patient of this practice for nearly two months. I found it through an internet search after my former doctor of 15 years stopped taking insurance. The entire staff here at Dr. Gendel's practice are kind, respectful, and most importantly thorough and efficient. Brenda a d Diana are upfront. They greet you with a smile and assist with all check in and out matters. Maggie is the RN. I dont think I have ever seen a harder working nurse at a doctor's office. The same is true for Brenda and Diana. I have been seen by both Dr. Gendel and his PA Gulnara. Both get down to business. Their thoroughness is laudable. If you are looking to have a social visit, this practice isnt for you. They always ask for all reasons for your visit and then handle each one with the same degree of urgency. Gulnara is incredible. I decided during the first visit to see this practice for all general medicine needs. Smartest decision ever. I highly recommend Dr. Gendel's practice.

Dr Gendel has been my primary for several years and I will hopefully have him as my primary for several more. He is a very kind, knowledgeable and respectful physician that truly has gone above and beyond for me and many others. Thanks Doctor Gendel.

Terrible in everyday. There is a reason Russians have that attitude you will sense it when you sit with him. He does not know crap about suboxene but chose to push it for the money in it and u will know when u see the waiting room. staff is rude he also made a pass at my daughter and like is it sexual battery when its a licensed physician?

Dr. Gendel is a wonderful physician. He is sometimes misunderstood and can seem a little stern, but the truth is he wants to see his patients do well and succeed. If you do the right things and stay honest with him, you will have a kind, thorough doctor by your side. Diana and the staff are also kind and helpful. I look forward to my visits.
