If I could give 0 stars I would. We had an 8 am appointment. At 8:30 there were 4 other patients in the waiting room and the "Doctor" still had not arrived. His RUDE staff WHO WERE NOT wearing masks (even though they have a sign posted requiring them) had no idea when he was coming and suggested that he might be stuck in traffic somewhere and one even joked that "if she had the diploma she'd take a look". This was ONE OF the worst experiences we have ever had with a doctor. JUST AWFUL.

Drove an hour south to visit clinic. Saw three "receptionists" chatting away, one sort of did work. Took my license and medical card, told me to have a seat. WARNING: THE SUFERN OFFICE DOES NOT PRACTICE SOCIAL DISTANCING NOR DISINFECTION OF THE SMALL WAITING ROOM!! Waited an hour before she BEGAN to check me in. I left before that. MY time is valuable too! The Dr has patients waiting while he performed surgery in another room. Any OTHER Doctor would make a day for surgery and a day to see patients. 20 people waited in a 10ft x10 ft room. Get a larger office!

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..
