Very good and passionate doctor
in Brooklyn, NY |
I am very satisfied with my visit to this doctor. The doctor is very knowledgeable, has a lot of experience. He is very kind and sympathetic. You can draw a blood on the same premises on the same day of your visit . I got the blood results back the next day with the doctor's comments on them. The doctor referred me for a renal sonogram which was done very conveniently at the office on the same day. The results came back in 5 days, which is also unbelievably fast.

Doctor himseld is nice and caring. But in order to get to him you will have to deal with his office workers. I would say this people do not know anything about being professional. Dear friends, this office very professional in hiring unprofessional workers. Dont be surprised if you come to your apoitement and you are not on the list. They practice this often. I wasted my month on waiting, my day of work and end up with nothing. Choose other place, this place does not care for you. At all!!!!!!
