The doctor was very profesional and nice. I didn't like the fact that to do blood work I would have had to walk over ten blocks to get my blood drawn at a lab. I wont be returning to that office.

Dr. Shusterman is a great doctor and I respect him greatly, but unfortunately I will be switching PCP due to the incompetence if his staff. It seems they do not relay any appointment information to him since he never has anyidea what I am there for. I am in the process of obtaining a special assignment at work that requires me to provide extensive medical information and certain tests. I relay this information to the front desk during a phone call to confirm my zocdoc appointment, and I am assured that "everything is in order". I ask about my new insurance and wether or not they'll take it and again, I am told that "everything is in order". When I arrive I am not even asked to provide insurance information but to pay a co- pay (which my insurance claims I don't have to pay). This doesn't bother me as much. What bothers me is being told by the doctor that they don't perform the test I went there to get. Why did no one tell me this? Why was I told that "everything is in order" when it clearly wasn't? Those my friends, are questions we'll never know the answer to. But one thing is certain and that's the fact that I won't be returning there.

Dr Shusterman is lovely as always . He's very knowledgeable and patient. He listens to all my concerns and answers all my questions. He's the best and highly recommended.

Dr Shusterman is an excellent physician. He's a great listener. I love him. Unfortunately, his front desk assistant is not pleasant at all. She needs to learn how to be nice and listen to the concerns of the patients without beingrude and blowing them off for no reason. I have been reluctant to visit the Dr even if he's my primary because of his one staff member

Dr Shusterman is amazing. He's a great physician but, he secretary Berta is not pleasant. She has no telephone manners and is condescending when speaking to me. I asked her a simple question and she was nasty to me. She yelledat me and treated me as if I was trash. Being a medical office manager myself, this type of behavior, unfortunately, reflects poorly on Dr Shusterman even though he's an outstanding man and medical doctor. I am truly considering looking for another primary care physician just so that I won't have to ever deal with that irate woman.

While I liked the doctor, I'm not sure about second visit (just to save some time) because they don't have sample collection facility; I've to go to separate place for that. Last PCP I've visited collected at his own place andsent to labcorp. It's super convenient. Also I had to complete good number of paperworks even though online checkin. Overall, experience is good and I'll recommend him.

Make sure not to show up before 5:30PM. That's when the doctor arrives. Do not book an appointment for 5:00, unless you like waiting.

I waited until 6:45 for my 6pm appointment. No one said anything about the doctor being late. The room was stuffy and filled to capacity. Patients were eating peanuts in the waiting room. I collected my copay and left. These peoplehave little regard for their patients. Please do not recommend these people to any one. I find their service lacking. The doctor is fine when he is on time. The receptionists are another matter. No manners, very abrupt and treat people like they are dirt. I resent being treated like that.

I don't think I was given enough opportunity to say exactly what I felt was wrong. This was my first appointment however, and I guess I should wait and see what happens when my test results comeback.
