Dr. Singer saved my life when I had chronic lyme disease. He is an excellent diagnostician.

Rude front office staff always a bad sign. The Dr. went to medical school so that is good. Spends an inordinate amount of time on his computer screen, so you probably won't see the whites of his eyes. Move onto another practice. Keep a copy of every medical record that you generate at this office if you do go as they'll make it tough to get your own personal records that belong to you and are about you....also - this is a clinic - so be prepared to waaaaaaaaaaaaaait.

I came to see Dr Singer for flu and cold symptoms I was treated with 4 different antibiotics in a 6 week period, and after months of liver specialists and finally a liver biopsy, I was treated for drug induced liver disease. Dr Singer spent at most 5 minutes with me during each visit before prescribing these drugs. It has cost me thousands of dollars and my health. Please do not go to see Dr Singer or his walk in clinic. I should have sued for malpractice.

I usual see Dr. Singer at the Westport Family Health Clinic on Post Rd., His bedside manner is terrible; weather he means it or not he has a very condescending aloofness about him. I honestly am not 100% sold on his diagnosis half the time, but I'm usually only there when I have a complaint/illness I cannot shake and need to see someone last minute. I always get this Dr. His personal hygiene is also pretty bad.
