Patient Reviews (2)
in Elmsford, NY |
Dr. Strongwater is an excellent physician and previously it was very easy and convenient to make an appointment, however, since joining with NY Presbyterian the policy is if you were a prior patient seen more than 2 or 3 years ago, you need to first make an appointment for the consultation, then re-schedule weeks later for a physical, Even after advising them my son would be traveling in from California and only here for 3 days next month they were unable to make an exception. What a shame.
