I have been going to Dr Singer ever since he opened his doors. He he an excellent diagnostician, and a very caring doctor. More than once he has gone above and beyond when treating my dad (92 years old). It is also very nice to know you don't need to wait days for an appointment. The office was once walk-in facility, but now it is a full-fledged internal medicine practice. I highly recommend this doctor.
Dr. Singer was the first doctor to diagnose my sleep apnea problem. He gave me an at-home test, which confirmed his diagnosis. His office then arranged for me to receive a CPAP machine and get insurance to pay for it. The results have been life changing. I highly recommend Dr. Singer for his professionalism, knowledge, and caring attention.

Dr Singer is Amazing! All the stars in the sky would not be enough! In addition to normal flu visits or colds he recently diagnosed a very serious disease I had called leishmaniasis and worked w the CDC to plan best treatment spanning 4 mos--saw my case through til the very end. He is a Lifesaver. HIGHLY recommend Dr Singer

Dr. Singer is outstanding. He is an excellent diagnostician. Over the years My wife and I have had problems which required fairly rapid care. Dr. Singer was able to rapidly determine what the problems were and how to rapidly cure them or define the problems better with additional imaging, blood or other testing. Some examples include diverticulitis, prostatitis, meniscalbtear, unusual arrhythmia, etc. Dr. Singer asks you the patient the right questions and reviews the history.

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.
