Patient Reviews (5)
in Flushing |
the doctor started out being very cordial , but as the visits went into overdrive it turned out that the office policy for authorizations was completely not acceptable(being done only once a week) and as a patient in pain, a total waste of time. The original promise of the hospital was changed two months after seeing the doctor. The final insult was 20 minutes before surgery to be told that he could not do one of the procedures because Medicare would not approve it, leaving the spine vulnerable!

I, for various reasons, had to have multiple back surgeries. He was always caring and available and even if it took until late in the evening, always saw me at the hospital and stayed in his office until the last patient was seen. I highly recommend him.
