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.

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.

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.

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.

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 .

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.

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.

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.
