Patient Comments (3)
in Kew Gardens, NY |
Very good doctor.
in Woodhaven, NY |
The definition of money hungry doctor. They tried to bill my insurance for services I do not need!!!!! They also denied appointment to provide me with required vaccines for my job. Their policy is that they don't do just vaccines!!! I truly hope the medical field becomes more humbling and true to HELPING others.
Richmond Hill, NY |
They are nice but not very efficient. I had issues getting my physical, they charge me for my own medical records. They are not good at following up. For example, I had lab work that showed a severe vitamin D deficiency and I had to wait to be seen for the prescription. The office staff should be able to complete some parts of the medical forms and the doctor reviews and signs. I would prefer a more aggressive approach. They always have appointments available though.
