What People Say About Dr. N Simon Tchekmedyian, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I am very sad to post this, but i think people should know. I am not rating the Dr. but the office staff. I never visited the Dr. or should I say I could not. All thanks to his office staff who displayed their incompetency with being unable to secure me an appointment. Without going into much detail, the office staff did not call me back for an appointment upon reviewing my chart. Their fax machine was broken, for over 2 weeks. Knowing this they expected to receive fax's from my Dr.s office who sent them fax 4 separate times. Apparently, they didn't receive any. They promised to call me back in 10 minutes and never did. Upon asking them for their lack of interest in making sure patients can secure an appointment, a lady's response was, we have a lot to do, so we can't fix the fax machine and help patients; we are a busy office. Hope the Dr is made aware of this and he is able to fix this for his practice.

If you want to wait an hour every time you go in - if you want to be stuffed into the most crowded, unpleasant room for hours at a time for chemotherapy - if you want the incompetent nurse to stab you numerous times before she can find a vein every time you go in - then this is the place for you.
