Palm Bay, FL |
Office wait time 1hr 15mins for which only his unprofessional ARNP Jill Polet will burden you w/ her impersonal presence. 3hr wait for your endoscopy after arriving 1hr prior as required. You see the Dr. for about 5mins. When you wake he walks away & says to follow up with his NP. Jill is cantankerous, rude, & her impatience interferes with simple listening skills. Confronting her will lead to her disparaging you and dropping you as a patient. Her excuse, "30yrs in this career does that." Retire
We understand frustration when any of our patients have an unexpected wait time, and we truly do value all of our patients' time. As a Specialist office we can never be fully prepared for what patients may express with our Providers in the exam room, and there are times when our Providers have to give very difficult news to a patient which may be result in a longer visit. We always strive to provide quality patient care, and are always open to receiving constructive criticism.

I cannot believe this place is even in practice. I have never seen this doctor despite trying to. It is pretty obvious that nobody in this practice reads despite multiple pieces of paperwork required submitted in addition to a grilling by a staff member about the same things you gave them records and hand written notes about. As a lifetime professional with advanced degrees I have never seen such an unprofessional mess in my life. A total waste of my time and money. They should be shut down

He is the biggest joke in Melbourne..he might make a living at washing dishes or road work where he don't have to have social skills

Fine Dr. He does what doctors like him are supposed to do. I fail to understand some of these reviews. It's his staff that needs work in terms of their bedside Manor which was, at the time of my procedure less than desirable. But I'm not here to grade them. I wish I could. But they are not the Dr. So cute the man some slack

First experience there was a miscommunication concerning whether a polyp was cancerous. Still to this, I'm still not sure. Went back for a follow up a year of so later, and made an appointment with his PA. Went to appointment 20 minutes early. Filled in paper work, had interview for pre consultation. Then waited another 40 minutes and still hadn't been called to see PA. When I went I went to receptionist was shown no consideration for having to wait so long to see the PA.

My experience with Dr. Koretsky was excellent. It was a difficult time finding out just before the holidays that I had a 5 inch tumor and it was thought to be pancreatic cancer. Due to the ultra sound findings the Doc got me in for a procedure in 24 hours. Had me scheduled in Orlando for a new procedure within two weeks and within weeks I was in surgery to remove the tumor.. I could not have been more happy with the expediency and decision making of Dr. Koretsky
Dear Paul, We are grateful for your trust and to know you have been satisfied with your patient care within our office. Thank you for taking your time to leave us feedback!

Difficult office to deal with. Dr spends no time with patients. NPs handle everything. Seems all about volume and $.
