What People Say About Dr. Samuel Markind, MD

Do not subject yourself or a family member to this "doctor". Read all the reviews and you will get an accurate idea of what he is like. How he is allowed to practice medicine and harm people is beyond me. Being a weary caregiver dealing with this office and him is beyond what anyone should have to take. Just find a better office and people who actually care. They do exist--just not at Associated Neurologists sadly.

Definitely pay attention to the truthful and negative reviews here. Patients are trying to prevent what happened to them from happening to someone else. Dr. Markind is extremely rude, nasty, inefficient, money hungry, in bed with Big Pharma and totally unconcerned about the reason you are there. Just avoid him and this practice. It is not about patients. It is about money.

I'm a registered nurse, so I know a little bit about medical, however, I know alot about myself. This rude ignorant man wouldn't listen, actually told me to stop talking!! He's beyond dispicable and a fish has a better personality.

As a cancer patient, I see all types of Dr.’s on a regular basis & have never encountered any Dr. with such a condescending & pious demeanor. I brought my mother here to be checked after having been in the hospital. He immediately cut me off in conversation & did not wish to hear from me, more importantly, he failed to read her PCP records brought in from her visit the day prior which held crucial info. Today, he accused me of withholding information that I never had. Extremely rude & insulting.

Wish I could give him a zero. Incredibly disrespectful. No empathy at all. Or really much basic human decency. He was dismissive of my concerns. Refused to see things from my perspective. Clearly didn't care about me or what happened to me. Like the possibility that I have a tumor is just some daily inconvenience to him. His lack of awareness about the vulnerability that you feel as a patient is frankly concerning. If he was a fish I would've thrown him back.

He was fine. Spent a reasonable amount of time with me. Listened. Offered reasonable treatment plan and explain it. Bedside manner was just fair: he wasn't warm but wasn't a jerk either. His PA is great. Experience was fine overall.

If I could rate no stars I would. Horrible doctor who misdiagnosed me with CIDP and MS. He put me through several painful tests including a spinal tap and nerve study. I went to another doctor at Yale New Haven that told me he was wrong. I have MS and not CIDP. Awful bedside manner.

Terrible bedside manner and doesn't care about patient. Just gives you more drugs verses finding root of the problem. Threatened to hang up on me. Very unprofessional!!!
