Dr. Garroway is a nonsresponsive uncaring doctor. I left a message for him 4 days ago and he still has not responded. He suggested a treatment that is inappropriate for the patient's age. No one at the office, nurse, medical assistant, has been helpful. In fact they have all been terse and rude.
Dear Tovah, We apologize for the experience you had with us. We strive to make every patient interaction with our doctors and front office staff the best it possibly can be. If you feel you have not received the proper care and attention you deserve please reach out to Vanessa, our Patient Relations Manager, at 516-536-2800. Thank you.
