Cranford, NJ |
OMG because of his staff I had to come back for another visit, PAY MY CO-PAY AGAIN and do the actual tests. When I called to make an appointment the staff NEVER TOLD ME I HAVE TO STOP TAKING MY ALLERGY MEDICATIONS 3-5 days before the visit. I logically understood that I should not take my meds before the visit, so I did not take my 24 hour medication the day before. This is just so unfair. Why do I have to pay co-pay again for their mistakes???

He is very nice doctor. He isn't in a rush to get you out of his office. He takes the time to find out exactly what is wrong. I would recommend him to everyone looking for an allergist.
