Patchogue, NY |
Doesn't have a clue. Had to go to another dr to fix what Dr hamburg did and was supposed to do.
Coram, NY |
I would not recommend going to this place if you have sleep issues. I have sleep apnea and was given a cpap machine by Dr Hamburg. His office never sent the computer chip to ensure i was being compliant, which is more an issue for him and insurance than for me because I use it every night. He never told me I needed follow ups nd to have my cpapa machine checked or tuned every once in a while. There was no follow up AT ALL from his office. They NEVER INFORMED ME THAT I SHOULD FOLLOW UP

Prepare to spend at least an hour waiting around for your appointment, and its usually more than that.
This office is the WORST. Rude and unprofessional is an understatement. I came here for a sleep study and the entire process was a nightmare, from having to wait for my appointment for over an hour almost every time, to the staff treating me as if they were doing a favor by seeing me. They screwed up my insurance billing, could not care less about wait times even though I constantly lost work time, and everyone was just miserable there. The doctor either doesn't know or more likely doesn't care
Hauppauge, NY |
Terrible experience. Unfortunately this office has gone down over the last 3 years, since Dr. John Riccardelli has left, the appointment times are not kept, the support staff is rude and the word professional is not even their vocabulary. Calls are not returned. The staff acts as if they are doing you a favor by working there. Dr. Hamberg is running around like the Mad Hatter trying to keep the office going but does not appear to know what exactly is going on.
