Went to this doctor because on Zoc Doc they were in my network. When I arrive they inform me that I am out of network after waiting for an hour for my appt. I was then told to go for anMRI in which I made an appt for 3 days later. When I arrived at the facility for the MRI they informed me the doctor office never called to preauthorize the MRI. All of the receptionists are very unprofessional and can’t simply do their job correctly.

Dr.Lerner is good at his profession but his staff on the other hand is clueless to much unprofessional chatter to care for the patients needs such as booking radiology appointments and following up with the patient before the schedule appointment to give further information or instructions

Dr. Lerner listened to what I had to say. He provided straight answers and feed back. He kept it simple for an initial visit, I am quite stable currently but did need to connect with a pain management doctor. I lookforward to him developing a helpful treatment plan of care, and establishing a mutual respectful doctor/patient relationship.

The Dr. was a listener and took the time out to ask questions. He didn't rush and made me feel at least hopeful that I can be helped with this pain. Suggested MRI's and Injections. A good start. Asked 4 urinalysis and have to go back next week.

Not only were the Front desk employers extreamly comforting , but Doctor Lerner when out of his way to take me as a first time patiant ! The first apperance of the office is house like feeling, rather then a medicaloffice. The whole experince was very professional, and would recommend Dr Lerner to others even if its a distance away. Sometimes its worth going out of your way for proper services/ treatment! Thank you Eric H
