I went to see dr. Lovely and they set me up with a physician assistant. They couldn't open my x-ray reports from the CD and they had no records that they were supposed to have faxed over from Albany Med. They told me they would research it and get back with me Monday. I called them a week later and they said they still have it reviewed or gotten my record yet the secretary was rude and nasty on the phone to me and was yelling. They told me again I'll call you in 5 days.with a different md!! :((

Dr. Lovely is a compassionate physician who really talks to you and listens to you. He operated on me in 1998 and will be during surgery again this February 2016. I just love him. He really cares for his patients and treats them like people...
