So he tells me at 12 noon that he sent my prescriptions to the pharmacy. I go to the pharmacy at almost 7pm & they tell me he never sent in the prescriptions. Had to call the overnight service and waitfor them to get him on the phone. He’s terrible.

This office is absolutely terrible! The younger staff at the front desk does not know the first thing about professionalism, courtesy, and proper dress code. Dr. Alapatt is a great doctor, however the office and staffing is atrocious! I shouldn'thave to wait 2 hours after my actual appointment time to see me. The younger doctor Dr. Fadi El-Atat was reprimanding his staff in a very unprofessional matter in front of the entire waiting room. The front desk over books all of these patients, which could extend your appointment out by hours. Aside from Dr. Alapatt, this office is an complete and utter disgrace!

Other than making inappropriate comments and showing too much interest about patient' personal life, the doctor was decent.

I was at the office on time. Despite receiving confirmations for my appointment the receptionist unapologetically and rudely let me know they were not expecting me and the doctor was going for a meeting. I had taken time off work tobe there. She also let me know that i needed to fill out paperwork again despite getting a notification from zocdoc that my details had been sent to them.

Always thorough, always kind, always a great bedside manner. There's always a bit of a wait, but for a good doctor in the tri-state area, it's worth it.

Staff and doctor are very direct and professional. Friendly and take care of your needs attentively. Only issue is the wait time to be seen so plan to wait awhile before being seen. Besides that they work well.

He harped on one thing and one thing only and was not at all willing to hear about my other problems. He barely examined me and used his phone to check my eyes and throat! he was more concerned with his ipad.
