He was haughty, unprofessional, chauvinistic, and carried a deplorable God-Complex. His secretary was extremely rudeas well, and the mentality of their practice was entirely outdated. It was all utterly egregious & one of the worst experiences with the medical professional I’ve ever had. I would never recommend him to anyone. And pray to God for his retirement or that he loses his license before anyone else has to go through what I went through.

As a note, the reason for my visit was for my annual checkup. I had just moved into the area andneeded to find a new doctor. While I definitely agree with the other reviews describing Dr. Seskind's thoroughness, that also got me in trouble. Due to how thorough he was, he scheduled numerous tests for me, and I, being much less knowledgeable than him, trusted him to perform these tests as procedure. Unfortunately, the cost of the number of tests that he performed passed my deductible, and so I was left with an enormous bill that I had to pay myself, without the help of my insurance agency. At the time of the checkup, I was not informed that these tests would have exceeded my deductible. Over four months, I disputed this bill with his receptionist, not knowing the above information. The receptionist replied that the reason I had to pay was due to the fact that they were outside of my insurance network, even though it was initially approved through this Website's pre-visit step, and that she would help me dispute this claim with my insurance agency. However, one month, by chance, Dr. Seskind picked up the phone when I called, who then told me the above information, which was a much different story than what the receptionist told me. So at that point in time, not only did I owe that large sum of money, I was also months overdue in my payment. So, explaining my ratings: 1. I would never go back because of my bad experience. As a result, I rated him one star. 2. Dr. Seskind's bedside manner during my actual checkup was actually quite good. Very thorough, and he definitely knew what he was talking about. However, during my conversations regarding my bill, he frequently called me a "thief who was stealing his services" and to "pay up, you debtor." As a result, I rated him as Awful." 3. Waiting time was less than 30 minutes - straightforward here.
