gave me a perscription of baycol for my heart condition. I called him and he told if you don't want to take it then don't and he hung up. He did not offer another medication. A few days later his p artner Dr Simons called me and said "Don't take the Bayco;l they found it causes heart attacks.

I have been a patient of Dr Hegazi for over 25 years. I have moved away from Brooklyn but I have not changed to another PCP because I do not think I am going to find a doctor who is so patient and explain in details about whatever your problem might be. He will always suggest the best alternative. The staff is amazing! Natalie and Sandy have been there for a very long time and it is always a pleasure talking to them. There is a long wait sometimes but that is because Dr Hegazi have a lot of patients and he spends time listening to explaining to them. One of the things I like about him is the way he would get to the bottom of things he will not take things for granted.

NOT AT ALL! Called for a prescription due to current medication not being helpful and have yet to hear from this doctor. I find this deplorable as his office initially called in the antibiotic.

I've been a patient of Dr. Hegazi for a number of years. I referred him to all my family and friends, they've all made him their PCP. He takes the time to listen to you, consult with you and offer you the best treatment possible. The staff are immaculate, in all the years , I've never once heard them speak rudely to a patient or anyone who comes in the office. They're very professional and courteous both in person and over the phone. The office is always clean and comfy. I love Dr H & his Staff!
