Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Strongwater is rarely in the office and no one else in the practice is able to handle issues that arise when he is away. The front office makes a lot of mistakes and communication is poor. Dr. Strongwater seems like a decent doctor, but the people around him are terrible.

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.
