      I spent for two and a half hours in a waiting room. Had an appointment for 9 am...came to the office at 8:45 and was invited only at 11:35. The doctor was too busy to see me on time. The people sat even on the floor. They were scheduled with no sense to the reality. The air conditioner didn't work. The stuff is rude and disrespectful ...disgusting... chewing the donuts. Stay away from that location on Washington Heights. The doctor is good but the command he pick to work with is really bad..
