Dr. Valmond has appointments opening starting at 9AM even though when speaking with his assistants, I learned that he does not usually even come in until nearly 10AM. Hence, I was sitting and waiting for him to show up for myappointment for close to an hour. The actual checkup was fine, but the biggest issue was that I received a surprise bill in the mail for the treatment that showed that while Dr. Valmond was in network, the laboratory contracted to process the bloodwork drawn by Dr. Valmond was out of network. Furthermore, the claim that was filed by the laboratory (which I am assuming Dr. Valmond must specify as part of the procedure of sending the bloodwork to be done in the first place) was labeled as "non-routine," and thus was much more expensive than what should have been a "routine" checkup, leaving me with a large balance bill even after disputing the out of network charge. All in all, this caused a huge headache receiving a large surprise bill, having to call the insurance company to clarify these charges etc. that could have been avoided well in advance had I been notified (as per New York state law) about the fact that the laboratory conducting the bloodwork was indeed out of network. To be ensure integrity and patient-provider transparency, I think either Dr. Valmond, or the team of assistants at the medical facility that I visited would do well to take careful heed of a given patient's insurance lest they be slammed with a surprise bill like I was.

This is my second time here and i will not be returning. Both times when ive come the woman at the fromt desk is rude and dismissive, and both times that ive shown up they have no idea that i havean appt. the first time i came i had to wait over an hour to be seen and this last time at the 45 min mark i asked how long the wait would be and the rude lady told me another 45 min, at whick point i said im leaving. There was no let me check with the doctor to cofirm How much longer, no would you like to reschedule. As im walking out she says i dont know how you made a friday appt, we dont usually take appts on fridays. The doctor is nice and his nursing staff is friendly but this disorganization om scheduling and rudeness from the fromt desk i wont be coming back.

Except bedside manner and as helpful as can be. Was a CitiMD employee, I wish ZocDoc was more open about these clinics as they aren't the most helpful for specialists.

- Him and his nurses/assistants were patient and clearly explained what the next steps were throughout the appointment. - I haven't been to the doctor in a while, so I was understandably nervous, but everyone there made me feel feel socalm during the appointment. - If you're looking for a kind attentive doctor in NYC, go here. Why waste your time on a doctor who is just trying to get you out the door? - *Also*, the office is in an urgent care facility, which got me nervous at first. But, quality of care and the facilities inside were really nice inside.
