bethpage, ny |
I picked Dr. P's name out of a book 15 years ago and consider myself extremely lucky. Although the wait times are sometimes more than I'd like, it's because of the amount of time he spends with each patient. He is very knowledgeable, keeps up with the newest research, is very personable and can explain like I'm 5 years old without attitude or condescension when needed .
Amityville, NY |
Absolutely horrible Dr's office. I would not have bothered to write this review if i was not a health care professional and so incredibly appalled by the way this practice handles itself. There is ALWAYS a billing error and my insurance in consistently over charged. There is ALWAYS over an hour-long wait after your appointment time. The office is filthy, archaic, and some rooms look like they're being used as a storage room for the owner's personal belongings. Do yourself a favor and avoid.Gross
