Patient Comments (2)
Deer Park, NY |
He is rude and apathetic and completely lacks what anyone would call bedside manners. I have never met a medical professional so rude in my life and the sooner I get my grandmother out from his care the better. The only thing good about him is that he takes her in when she calls and the other staff are nice. But I can find much better service elsewhere.
Syosset NY |
Very caring and listen to my problems before making a diagnosis Took care of my complaints which my previous doctor was unable to resolve
