Dr. Germinario has been my primary care physician for a few years now and I like her a lot. She's very good....personable, competent, thorough. I really like her.
Went as a new patient with a list of concerns. None were addressed and I wasn’t examined. Wasn’t aware this was more like a health clinic. Staff was extremely rude and condescending to me and other patients.
It started with her staff. When I arrived, I stood at the receptionist window to let them know I had arrived. The lady sitting closest to the window, looked up at me and continued a conversation with the remaining staff. No "hi", "can you give a second", nothing. I finally interrupted their conversation to let them know I was had an appointment. To then she gave me standard forms to complete, I was seen my the nurse about 15 minutes after followed by the Doctor. Although, I enjoyed her bed side manner, I still will not recommend her to anyone for the simple fact that she just likes to milk the insurance. I went in for a my annual physical and the first time she "consulted me", the second visit she did blood work, the 3rd visit was sharing the results of the blood work. , the 4th was supposed to be the actual physical but then her office called me that they wanted to do additional blood work and that it as going to have to be pushed back and I just gave up and decided not to go back. The point of an annual physical is to do all the exams then and there, this shouldn't have taken possibly 5 visits to just do a physical. The day she wanted to share the blood work with me she should of conducted the exam. It's hard I work full time and I can't take off nearly 5 days all in 2 week or less increments. Stop juicing the insurance and get your patients out the door quickly.
I found her to be very easy to talk to and professional. She told me straight out her procedures and what she wanted to do. Follow up was also very quick and easy. I found the staff to be wonderful and pretty fast in taking me in.
My visits with the doctor herself are always great... but if I was able to reach the office staff in the first place, I wouldn't have had to come in at all.
The doctor herself is sweet and helpful - it's the office staff thats a mess. Every time I've made an appointment through ZocDoc for Germanario, I ALWAYS get a call from the office staff either telling me the doctor isn't in that office on the day that I booked or the doctor is on vacation or the doctor won't be in at that time. I always either have to go to a farther location or reschedule to a different, later time. Apparently they don't keep their Zocdoc schedules up to date, which is a bit of a disappointment because you never know if the appointment you booked will be the appointment you wind up with after its all said and done.
I just wish she had later hours- since I am working. I am going to have to switch doctors.
Great doctor but considering she works two locations, hard to schedule for her.
