Like anywhere now a days office waiting can be long. If you want great care and a doctor with staff who listen and respond to your calls this is the place. Bring a book you been trying catch up on or tablet and relax cause the care given is what's more important.
in Purchase, NY |
After I received X-rays he told me I had a chipped elbow and I was fine, and not to put pressure on it and it would heal. I brought my own sling he told me to come back 6 weeks. I receive a bill for $1,200 and that was separate from the X-ray bill. Except for reading the x-rays and seeing me move my elbow he did nothing.When I call about the bill Dr. Cristofaro tells me that’s what his time costs for taking up a seat in his office and I should blame Obama. He is Overcharging and Rude to people
in NY |
Unprofessional, uninformed, and arrogant. Doesn't treat patients as customers. Patient left unnecessarily with a large scar.
