Patient Comments (5)
Staten Island, ny |
Dr Lapenna is very knowledgeable but it's getting to the point where I am thinking of switching doctors because of the unacceptable waiting time. If you have an appointment and you are the 3rd person then how can i be there for over 2.5 hrs waiting. More than an hour of that in the room you are in waiting to see him. Then when I see him I'm there 15 minutes max.. Staff is also rude.

I would recommit definitely. HE IS THOROUGH AND CAUCUS AT THE SAME TIME. ..

Dr. LaPenna is thorough, however, the wait of 3 plus hours is horrific. That is why I had to change doctors. I had to leave after waiting almost 2 hours because I would have been waiting another 2 hours. On average people wait 4 hours.

Dr. Lapenna is my Internist and I must say without a shadow of doubts, he rock's, his compassion is unmatchable, as a long term survivor of Lymphoma, if not for his excellence and expertise as one of the most skilled physician's I've ever met, my new secondary Cancer DX would have gone unforeseen. Recently having total thyroidectomy, not only am I blessed to have my Med team of Drs @Sloan Kettering....I give a big shoutout first and foremost Dr. Lapenna. HE SAVED MY LIFE!

This office is run so poorly I am surprised he still has patients. I have never been in the office with a wait time of under an hour, like the patient time is not important to him and my last visit that I had my 4 year old with me was almost 2 hour wait and if I did not have a serious chest infection I would have walked out. My last appointment sealed the deal for me to never go back, I sat in the exam room over 30 minutes listening to him socialize with a male patient in the room next to me
