Patient Comments (2)
New York, NY |
She rushed my appointment and I felt like I couldn't ask her any of my questions/concerns that I had. I waited about 2 hours just to have a 2 minute consultation and for her to say " see me again in 2-3 weeks" Seems like she schedules a lot people, but doesn't have enough time for them. Overall, I don't recommend. I feel like she really doesn't like her job much.

AVOID. I waited 1.5 hours before being escorted into an exam room to wait some more. During that time, I heard every patient complain, loudly, about long wait times. I witnessed the receptionist argue with patients, mix up one patient's insurance card with another patient's paperwork, and tell a disabled patient to move her chair because it was placed inconveniently instead of asking her if she needed help. It was an incredibly insensitive comment because the patient couldn't stand up or walk. O
