Nice enough doctor, but the waiting was atrocious. Not the most professional front office staff, but you can tell that theyenjoy working there.

Awful experience with this doctor. He mocked my tattoos (at two separate appointments) and when I tried to talk to himabout how that felt he wouldn’t listen and shouted over me like a defensive child. He also shouts patient information down the hallway. Don’t expect privacy or respect at this office.

Dr Bertelle is great, and his staff are wonderful. There are many bad reviews saying they felt the staff were rude or the wait time was too long. The practice has been open for a while, its Brooklyn, and its asmall building - its going to be a bit crowded at times, and the Dr. is in high demand so yes, sometimes there is a long wait. The staff do so much and are very accommodating when able, and do their best to make sure every patient is seen - sometimes they might not be super friendly, but I'd much rather someone be real with me than act fake nice. At the end of the day, the Dr. listens and always makes sure all of your concerns are taken care of. Come prepared with your insurance card and all relevant info needed and things will go smoothly.

I came in about 15 minutes early to fill out the new patient forms. The man talking to receptionist before wanted to see the same doctor I was scheduled to see. She advised him that he wasn't in and they wouldgive him a call as as soon as he got into the office. He leaves the office and I walk up to the receptionist and greet her with a good morning, she doesn't even acknowledge me. A few moments pass until she sticks her fingers in the air and says give me a few moments. She could have greeted me and said I'll be right with you. that was really rude. The tiny office was filled with about 6 woman all indulging in personal conversation. As the receptionist handed me the forms, she received a phone call (personal) she preceded to answer the call and ignore any further questions I had. When I went to hand in my insurance card and my photo I.D the ladies in the room were talking about their breakfast and lunch options. I finally spoke out and said I'll leave my I.D here, one of them turns around and says oh I didn't see you there? How could you!? If you have your back turned to me? My review is based off of 3 different visits. Every time with similar experiences. Beyond the receptionist, the doctors are a mess. They yell down the hall anytime they need to communicate. It’s really unorganized. The biohazard bins are overfilled. It’s just a complete disaster. The only reason I came back on 3 occasions was due to medical issue. However I’m definitely not returning or would ever recommend this doctors office.

It was a great experience, the beautiful women at the front desk made my experience absolutely delightful, also Rosie was phenomenal. You can tell she knows her stuff and is very dedicated to her job. The next thing I noticed aboutRosie is she is very intuitive, she flows through the office with different patients quickly and effectively while not rushing any clients. This building has history I can see a very high amount of regulars. Anyways this is a great sign thank you

They were very kind and extremely worried about me. Their nurse had extreme patience while taking my blood and even brought me some ginger ale after. She even had another doctor help calm me down and all were very kind. Great staff.

My experience is based on two appointments with Dr. Bertelle. The first time I waited 1.5 hours past my scheduled time to see the doctor, the second I waited over two hours. **Remember the waiting room scene in Beetlejuice...?** Dr. Bertelleis knowledgeable and concerned with his patient's well-being but I find it hard to see past the downsides of a mismanaged office. The front desk is inefficient and pushy with their requests. The entire office runs on outdated paperwork that patients are required to fill out over and over again. **Where does it all go?** The level of mismanagement and confusion between doctors, staff, and nurses is concerning. Also, don't expect to hear back about results.. FYI: Cash/Check only for co-pays.

Dr. Bertelle is great. He explained everything and made me feel a lot better. He is very thorough and although he already knows what is wrong with me he ordered a full work up to make sure it isn't something more. The wait was over an hour though.

Dr. Bertelle runs his office with his family. His daughter is the PA and his wife also a doctor. His office does not have long hours for the summer so you may have to reschedule accordingly. Dr. Bertelle is very nice,friendly and informative. He does not rush you for anything and if you need something extra he accommodates and listens patiently.

I've been living in the city for a few years now and have been putting off finding a local doctor. Finally bit the bullet. Searched on Zoc Doc and Dr. Bertelle had such great reviews. The staff is fantastic. Dr. Bertelletook his time asking questions and super friendly too. But if you're booking for a Saturday morning appointment, expect a VERY long wait. Was at the office for 2+ hours before I was finally seen. Also had to fill out all my info even after filling it all out on ZocDoc already. But for not having been to the doctor in awhile, Dr. Bertelle was fantastic!

Havent been here in about 4 years and just visited today; Bertelle hasnt changed one bit. 5 star all around and actually cares about fixing the problem rather than pushing you out the door. As a result of his attention todetail- you will have a longer wait time than usual.

The wait time was about 30 minutes after signing all the documents. The staff is very friendly and super friendly and kind to their older clients. I went in for an annual physical. The doctor and his wife were great. Lorraine,the wife took care of me and set me up with additional exams to take a closer look at my heart. I love this place and I am glad to have them as my primary doctors.
