Verified Patient Reviews
This was by far the most frustrating healthcare experience I've ever had. I hate writing negative reviews, but this was so bad, I think possible patients should know — especially since all reviews before were 5 stars. I was going in for possible pneumonia and was able to see the Dr. fairly quickly and get the proper tests needed, and was immediately prescribed a very heavy antibiotic (Levofloxacin) that a previous Dr. I had seen that day did not want to prescribe to me until pneumonia could be confirmed. Considering the side effects and the fact I did not know what I had, I was a little concerned. I voiced my concern but was told to take anyways. After I went to get my xray the day after I was then to follow-up with the Dr. for a report on my lungs, but when I called no one answered and there was no voicemail. I called several times for the next two days to his office and not once did anyone pick up. Mind you I was still taking antibiotics for something that I may or may not even have. Fast forward to another two days and I get a call from the Dr.'s office saying they have canceled my appt and I would receive a call back to reschedule. I never got a call back. I then called back several times to try to reschedule with no luck. The next day I call and get someone on the line and they tell me they may not be able to see me for another 4 days, in which I'd be out of town. I request for my results to be read to me over the phone in which they say this is not possible — however this is a completely routine thing that I've never had an issue with. I call back and a different receptionist then says she may be able to get the Dr. on the phone with me but can't confirm and I should make an appt to come to the Queens office instead of the Manhattan one. (Mind you in the middle of the workday, completely out of the way.) At this point I'm beyond frustrated and still have no idea what I have. Another day goes by, (now I'm on the last 2 days of antibiotics), I call, the receptionist says she'll call me back at 11 a.m. and I explain to her every time I've called and they've said they'll call me back they haven't, she promises me she will call back. Surprise, it's 11:45 am and still no call. I call back, and finally get the doctor on the phone in which he says I probably have bronchitis and to just finish up the medicine. I ask for what symptoms to look out for if the problems persist, if I should have even been prescribed such a heavy antibiotic, when I should be able to start working out again, and he can't give me a clear answer on any of these. I voice to him my frustrations and concerns of his practice and he replies with 'I'm sorry you feel that way'. I didn't want to write a negative review, but the fact that every person I communicated with over a week did not seem apologetic in any way, and was not able to give me straight answer, forced me to do so. You should never, ever have unclear, murky answers when it comes to your health. TL;DR: This practice is the most unhelpful when it comes to following up, getting results, and you WILL get stuck with over a week of cluelessness and bouncing around from one receptionist to the next with each one giving you conflicting answers. If you want to be treated like trash, you've found the right place.
Billing is a mess and the specialist I was referred to subsequently implied the prescription I was given worsened my ailment.
