Overall, Dr. Ginsberg was helpful, and friendly and answered all of my questions. I would have appreciated more detailed information about the medications he prescribed. Unfortunately, the office staff were very unhelpful when I followedup about a prior authorization needed by my insurer after the visit for a cream that was prescribed. I was first placed on hold by the office receptionist for almost 20 minutes and had to call back. I was then assured that the p.a. would be processed asap. However, when I followed up with my insurance provider the following day, they said that they still had not received it.

I get easily frustrated when it comes to doctor visits because they all seem to be a money factory of just pumping a high volume of customers through the door and minimizing face time. I really liked that Dr. Ginsberg tookhis time to listen to me and explain all of my concerns in detail. I really appreciated that. Most importantly, I felt comfortable with him and I would see him again.
