DO NOT SEE THIS DOCTOR!!!!!!!!! A complete waste of time. Very cold and uncaring. He will do the minimum to see you coming back to bill your insurance. Does explain anything, treat you like you're irrelevant. Absolute worst.

I have a 4:45pm appointment today. Was running a few minutes behind so I called the office. No phones were being picked up. I literally arrived at 5:52pm and I was told that since I was Dr. Krespi's last patient of the day that he wouldn't be able to see me. While all of this was happening, another patient in the waiting room came up and was complaining aboug how they've been waiting for over an hour. Ridiculous! Go to NYP Weill-Cornell Doctors, so much more professional!

Make sure you ask about the cost upfront. A family went in to check her tongue. Dr. Krespi did a 10 minute exam, said she was ok and it cost us almost $1000. It was not made clear what the cost would be. In fact, my wife thought there was no charge after talking to the receptionist.

I used Dr. Krespi for a nasal surgery. I had a deviated septum and hired him to fix the problem about 4 years ago. He did absolutely nothing and I'm still having breathing issues. Horrible doctor. Don't use him.

I came in with severe facial pain. He spent 3 minutes with me, put a scope in my nose, said I didn't have a sinus infection and should see a dentist - it was TMJ and then he walked out the door. I suffered all weekend , Googled dealing with facial pain. On Monday saw my dentist who said it was a neuralgia. A few weeks later I received a bill for $262 from Dr. Krespi- separate charge for exam and scope. Have been disputing bill for 4 months. He and his secretary will not speak to me.

Very rushed and not caring at all. All you get is someone who doesn't even close the door and is half way out during the entire appointment (which lasted no more than 5 min). He didn't answer any of my questions: I would either get a shrug of his shoulders or an I don't know. After asking about a specific medicine, he said he can give me a prescription if I want. If I was going to self diagnose myself and decide on my own medicine I would have saved myself the time and copay. Very disappointed

I would not recommend this doctor. The appointment was rushed, he was literally half-way out the door before I could ask one question, he provided almost no input to my ailment, he rushed and was rough with performing procedures, and didn't even care to check my medical history or name for that matter. The whole appointment was highly uncomfortable, rushed, a waste of time and a waste of co-pay.
