Dr. York has been my Rheumy for the past 3-4 years. He is honest, straight to the point, and his experience allows him the ability to avoid a bunch of unecessarry testing and procedures. Dr. York is an outstanding physician, and I will continue to see him until he leaves the practice. With the exception of the wait times, I would recommend Dr.York to family and friends.
West Bloomfield, MI |
This a.m. I had a new patient app't at 9:45am with Dr. York. He kept me waiting almost an hour. Once in the room, Dr. was preoccupied and alarmed that his laptop computer was frozen, and he cut me off when I was answering his question, 'what brings you in today?' Apparently the entire WSU system went down. He explained that I had two options: reschedule, or have a very limited appointment with me. Really? You can't treat a patient without your laptop? I do not have confidence in this dr.

He never spoke with me, had his interns "handle" me. He insulted and ridiculed me in presence of interns. I would describe him as a "wannabe Ben Carson".
Farmington, MI |
Wait Time was actually TWO HOURS!!! after my scheduled appointment! Unacceptable. Going to another specialist.
in detroit |
He appeared lost in his ability to connect with me as a patient and my desire to get well my services seemed rushed as though he were disinterested and a true course of action for treatment I would tell anyone to whom had him as a doctor to run find anyone else but dr. York
