    The doctor is a wonder human being. He is caring and compassionate. He has great bedside manner, he explains everything so you know exactly what is going on. I wish he would change his Brooklyn receptionist, she is the total opposite of the doctor. She always complains about everything and never has time to even make an appointment for you when you need a follow up, terrible work ethic. I hope my comments do not reflect negatively on the doctor he is excellent.
