Unsure if my appointment went really well, I was just going for annual physical. It was also quite difficult to schedule later appointments.
I cannot adequately express my frustration with this “urgent care” ( the doctor also serves as my GP, but that will no longer be the case!). For the second time in a row, when I arrived for my appointment before 10 am, the doctor was not even in the building. When he strolled in half an hour later, there were still 4 patients to see before me. Let me reiterate that this is the SECOND time he has not even been in the building when I showed up for an appointment. And also that for TWO AND A HALF HOURS there was an urgent care with no doctor. Also, I had to ASK if he was there yet because no one bothered to tell me I’d be waiting a long time. All I want from this place is my medical records and then never to go back. If Zocdoc can help me obtain a copy of my chart I would be very grateful because they didn’t seem to understand that I’m allowed to have them.
he is great. his staff is not so great.
Very professional, always a very short wait too.
He's very professional He educated me and my condition and addressed all my concerns.
Great doctor! Made me feel comfortable, he answered all my questions. I will definitely recommend him! The wait wasn't bad at all, maybe 10 minutes.
He's thoughtful, patient, and has an excellent bedside manner. Highly recommend.
Dr Valmond is a great listener, asks insightful questions, and I never feel rushed. He shows compassion and genuine care for me as a patient. I've been seeing him ever since I moved to NYC and am very happy with him as my primary doctor.
I like Zocdoc for the convenience but this office cannot function with zocdoc appointments. I showed up and they said I wasn't in the system. A girl came in behind me who had also booked with zocdoc and they told her the same thing. The receptionists were incredibly rude and made it clear that booking with zocdoc did NOT get you on their schedule. There are at least three people in the waiting room w appointments at the same time as me.
The. Worst. Unless you like sitting in the waiting room for 45 minutes past your appointment time while the doctor gets a sales pitch from a cell phone rep.
The waits in the office were 30mins+ despite booking appointments, the visit felt rushed, i was put through a large amount of seemingly unnecessary but pricey tests (without prior discussion) and my problems ultimately persisted even after the treatment.
Incredible guy! Took his time with me and was very informative, down to earth, and super professional. Thanks Dr Valmond!!
Disregarding the arrogant bedside manner and his slavish devotion to medical terminology to the point of obscurity, my main complaint is that Dr. Valmond never responded to my other doctors request for information and consultation, despite several attempts.
I am very happy with Dr. Valmond. He is very courteous, attentive, and generous with his time. I highly recommend Dr. Valmond!
A nurse interrupted our visit on more than one occasion.
He was excellent! I came in with an issue that I was very concerned about. He explained to me and assured me that he thought it was not serious. He took a blood sample and I received call the next day with results that were explained to me as expected. They had also scheduled an appoint for an ultra sound to follow up. I did the procedure and waiting for a call which I am sure will come as soon as the results come in. Dr. has an amazing bedside manner and I would recommend hime to anyone!
Maybe bad timing the second time I went there. The wait was about 45 min long. I was sent to another place to get x-rays two doors down and it seemed like a total disconnect. I waited there for another 20 min. When everything was done I went back to his office. The rude receptionists who is always talking down to you, told me he would call me with results. It's been a full week and the doc has yet to call me back. My injury is still in pain:( I called back yesterday to check up and once again the rude receptionists made me wait 30 min on hold to tell me she will have the doc call me back. I'm still without a clue of what to do.. Big waste of my time and money this go round.
Dr Valmond was extremely professional, courteous and reassuring. He provided sound counsel and advice and immediately put me at ease. Highly recommend him!
Great doctor, very on point. Wait time was normal, around 25-30 minutes. I went there at 5pm on a Friday. Will be coming back.
Dr Valmond is a very knowledgeable and kind doctor. He definitely takes his time to hear my needs and try to understand root causes. He is very patient with his explanations, as well.
Doctor was very professional and cared a lot about my well being
The doctor is professional,really nice and helpful, I would recommend him! But the waiting time is SUPER LONG! If you don't have time than consider somewhere else.
The nurse was personable and took time to understand my concerns. Dr. Valmond was straightforward and responsive.
I'm from out of town and made my appointment the night before. Dr. Valmond was great - answered all of my questions and spent more time with me than I expected. The wait time was nothing out of the ordinary and his assistants were also very kind. No issues with my insurance either.
Dr Valmond was courteous, on time, and helpful during my appointment. Highly recommended primary care physician. 5/5 stars.
Very smart, very patient.
Very unprofessional staff, and the waiting time is ridiculously long. Staff keeps telling you it is only a few minutes, very deceptive tactic when you have to wait for over an hour before you see a Doctor. Never again. If they are understaffed then hire more doctors for that location .
Great doctor. Professional and courteous. I had to wait longer than expected, but it was worth the wait.
I was not impressed by Dr Valmond. I had two appts with Dr Valmond. In the first he was fairly dismissive of my concerns but ran some kidney tests on a long-standing issue. I had to come back for a follow up to discuss my test results - someone on the phone told me they were abnormal and that I had to come in. I was naturally anxious that whole week anticipating the results. When I arrived I was his first patient of the day, and yet he was over 1 hour late for my appointment. He didn't apologize, and worse, assumed I was someone else and when he was wrong, started guessing at who I was e.g. "you're the one who was in the peace corp", "you're the one who...". When I told him he was making me very late for work and could we please discuss my results, he admitted he had not looked over the results and had to go find them. He then said they were not abnormal, so I was rather upset he had made me come in for almost 2 hours and worry all week over very little. His bedside manner was somewhat patronizing. I found a different nephrologist, and do not plan to return to Dr Valmond.
Very organized and professional office and staff; front desk, med assistant and MD. Dr. Valmond was very pleasant, understanding and helpful. Asked many questions and did a thorough evaluation
He's fantastic. Best MD in the city
Excellent. .i was relieved and very happy that I met such a wonderful,good manner ,and friendly and real professional ,highly qualified doctor.. I will stik to him and tell my friends and the whole world of this supetb Doctor called Augustus. Valmond. God bless you.
Simply phenomenal. My wait was 5 minutes and I was taken care of like I have been going there for years even though this was my first time! The nurse was super friendly and professional. She made me smile and feel comfortable when I told her I haven't had a physical in over ten years. The doctor was even more amazing! He asked all about my history and really got to know about me. He took his time and got to some key issues in my health. I can't say enough about how great my experience was.
He was very nice and conversational.
Very attentive, spent lots of time and really seemed to care. Was a new patient visit and will likely be my PCP from here on out.
Dr Valmond was incredibly professional as well as pleasant. I enjoyed my visit, particularly the numerous conversational digressions from official questions.
Very good experience. Professional office. Responsive. Helpful
it was fine nothing to write home about, short and sweet. If you are looking for that in your doctor I would recommend him.
I was meeting with Dr. Valmond for the first time for a general consultation. I was a bit irked at a wait time over an hour, but the actual appointment was fantastic, he was concise, considerate, and well spoken. I'm happy and will return if I have any other medical ailments.
Dr . AUGUSTUS VALMOND is a great Doctor. ..he's one of a kind. He takes your health serious and he just don't write you off and move on to his next patient.
Good guy. Seemed like the visit was a little rushed but overall good experience
Dr. Valmond might be the best doctor in NY. Very relatable, professional, and efficient with his time. I plan on going back for any appointments I may need on my future. Also his nurses are just as well equipped and professional as well. Easily the best time I've had at the doctor's office in years
Super awesome doctor
I had this doctor before and he's very good. My only complaint is that I filled out the medical history paperwork on line and the office never got it so my husband had to fill it out again at his apointment
Terrible experience. I will never go back, between the wait, disorganization, and lack of knowledge I would not recommend this office to anyone.
Great doctor ; after this visit this will be my primilary care physician . Thanks for all your help . See you in a month - MJ
Doctor was very clear and precise
Really appreciated thoroughness and professionalism. Dr. Valmont listened and made sure to ask if I had questions. Extremely helpful.
Dr. Valmond was professional and kind, took all of my concerns to heart, did not strong-arm me into any decisions about treatment, and was informative. The office seemed a little hectic, but all in all a pretty painless experience.
His office never called in my prescription for antibiotics. What a waste of time after waiting almost 2 hours to see him in a tiny cramped waiting room - if you could even call it that. Oh and the best part was while I was waiting, one of the medical assistants brought out a urine specimen bag that had become uncapped and was waving around this clear plastic bag full of urine - in view of the waiting patients. Completely unprofessional.
Excellent doctor, explains everything, explains options, makes recommendations, totally relatable and professional.
Was referred to see an office... whose number was no longer in service. Appointment was in a small room, only saw the Doctor for 5 minutes. Nurse was friendly, but ultimately nothing was accomplished and was a waste of time.
A true professional and even better human being. If you want a doctor who cares and listens, he is your man.
The doctor was late for my appointment for more than 40 min. It is very unprofessional. I understand that there could be delays in public transportation, but at least keep you patients updated so that they are not wasting their time waiting for you at your clinic.
Being that I have had my previous doctor since I was a child in my hometown, I was very nervous to find a doctor in New York City that I would be able to feel comfortable with. After researching and looking for a doctor, I'm very glad I chose Dr. Valmond. His staff were very kind and personable. During my first appointment, I felt at ease and comfortable with explaining any concerns or issues with my personal health.
Dr. Valmond is truly great. He has great communication skills and is really kind.
Great bedside manner and very pleasant. Answered all of my questions in a detailed manner and made me feel very comfortable. Will most certainly recommend.
It was a pleasure meeting Dr. Valmond, he was very professional, kind and informative. His staff was very personable as well.
Let me start with the fact that I'll definitely be going back to visit Dr. Valmond, he was amazing! The office - not so much. I got there, and they didn't have any of the information I gave on zoc-doc and had a super annoying electronic system I had to fill it out in. The whole operation seemed messy and disorganized and after waiting 40 minutes I went out to ask if they forgot about me. I was about to say never again and then the Dr. came in. Dr. Valmond has the best bed sides manners I've ever witnessed. He asked me all the right questions, suggested additional tests to run to check on items, and had a solid follow up plan. Seriously the best doctor I ever had. So if you can deal with the wait and the office situation, I highly recommend this dr.
It was frustrating that I filled out the lengthy online pre-visit survey, then had to fill it out all over again in the office.
Very helpful, took time to listen and offer opinion.
I filled out the paper work via Zocdoc so I didn't appreciate that I had to fill out the same medical paper work all over again but other than that the doctor and staff were really great. Dr Valmond himself is very nice and very helpful, the office even called to check on me.
