Patient Comments (6)
Great Neck, NY |
I've been a patient of Dr. Kushner for years now, but I just visited the Farmingdale office for the first time. I had an amazing experience: the office is clean, crisp, and brightly lit. The office staff are friendly and helpful. My wait was negligible and as always, Dr. Kushner addressed my issue in a professional and efficient manner. Highly recommend!
Hempstead, NY |
I have many dysplastic nevi and need to have full body exams each year, so I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Kushner. Upon being brought into the exam room, I analyzed the cleanliness (as I always do) during the down time. The computer was dirty, the razors were opened in a pouch that suggested they were sanitized; instead of thrown away, and there wasn't a hand washing sink in sight. Dr. Kushner's appearance couldn't make up for her dirty office. Her "full body exam" was a total of 2 minutes.

I called Dr. Kushner's office for an emergency and they gave me an appt for the same day. I never expected to get an appt so quickly since I had never been to see her before. the staff was friendly office was clean and the wait time was minimal. Doctor explained everything in detail and very thorough.
