in Staten Island, NY |
The doctor is brilliant, kind, honest, and meticulous in his surgical technique. He does not have great people skills, but I am willing to look past that because he is so good. The office has just changed management, rude receptionist is gone. A lot of new assistants hired. The place has been renovated. I highly recommend
