Patient Comments (3)
West Babylon, NY |
OFFICE STAFF / incompetent & unprofessional !!! WARNING :
in New York, NY |
Dr Polena did a cardiac catherization at Huntington Hospital. He was so warm, professional and good that I would recommend anyone to him.
in Centerport, NY |
The office staff is nasty and unreliable. After being hospitalized for a syncopal episode, the front desk staff told me to follow up with my PCP. I obviously didn't feel comfortable with that so I left a voicemail for the office manager who called me back minutes later and asked me to come in immediately explaining that the office staff should've never told me to follow up with my primary. The front desk also told me I couldn't have copies of my records because my chart is in storage...
