What People Say About Dr. Paul Pechman, MD
Reply
He's at his private practice seeing patients when he's supposed to be on-call at the hospital... Technically he is on-call, but he doesn't respond to texts. The nurses know this but can't do anything but leave message after message. Dr. Pechman left my dad as NPO for a week and managed to get him into such a weak condition that even a team of specialists at Mount Sinai couldn't save him. Currently filing an official complaint.

I made an appt for a new consultation after moving to the area. After being rescheduled twice due to the doctor's schedule, I waited over an hour before leaving the waiting room and cancelling my appt. If he is too busy to keep a schedule, perhaps he shouldn't take new patients. Perhaps it is an office issue, but I found this lack of a good first impression to be a big red flag.
