Patient Comments (1)
South Ozone Park, NY |
Dr. Ghaffar was pleasant but I will not go back here, Her staff however was unprofessional and the PA's bedside manner was unacceptable. When my medical history was being taken the door was left wide open with no courtesy for my privacy, the receptionist and whoever was in front heard everything. Then one time they forgot I was in the waiting room and sent two patients who came after me ahead of me then came in the room and said "OMG your still waiting?" what incompetence. Don't waste your time.
