From the two lovely ladies who assist the Dr, to Dr. Schayes himself, this was probably one of my best visits to any Dr's office, bar none. Not a long wait at all. Very efficient office crew. The physical went smoothly. Very friendly, helpful, caring, and warm. Dr. Schayes is now my primary care physician of choice. Highly recommended!

This was my first visit with Dr. Schayes and it happen to be a pleasant one. He answered questions and informed me of some things of which I was unaware. The reception nurse was very pleasant and helpful. I have been trying to fine a GP for a long time and hopefully my search is over.

Every time I've gone to see Bernard I've had at least an hour wait. I think the wait times are excessive. The last few times I've seen Bernard he has texted on his phone during his time with me. He doesn't seem to care about the people he's seeing.

I chose this doctor for my physical based on ZocDoc reviews. He put in literally zero effort or care into my visit. He does a speed dating version of seeing patients. He grabs them from the waiting room and is in and out within 5-10 minutes with each one and then brings the next one in. He wouldn't even shake my hand when I tried to introduce myself, and instead gave me his elbow to shake lol. I told him symptoms I was feeling and he tried to sell me a fish oil pill he was pushing. I went to get a blood test and the doctors office never called me back with results and after the 5th call just told me that if I didn't hear anything back, then nothing is wrong. The entire appointment lasted 7 minutes, half of which was him walking me through how tp buy his fish oil online. The most worst physical I've ever had in my 30 years of life.

I felt very rushed as I had many questions to the doctor and he only spent 5 minutes for both of my visits. As a result initial problem I had is still unresolved and I am looking for other specialists.

I was pleased that Dr. Schayes recommended a newer type of high blood pressure medication because my current one was not working well. My blood pressure was still high. I was also pleased that Dr. Schayes assured me that I may benefit with medication for my Adult ADD, and now I can rest assure that trying medication can be safe.

Dr. Schayes was friendly and professional but it was a bit weird to have a doctor entering information on the computer and his assistant did all the general check ups (checking for my blood pressure, heartbeat). I wanted to get my blood drawn for different tests, and the doctor sent me to the Quest Diagnostic Lab. And he wanted me to get an EKG because of my family history which required a different appointment. When I went in for the EKG, the office wanted me to return again for the blood test results. I feel like this doctor's office like many others want their patients to keep returning for one thing at a time to keep charging my insurance company.
