I was told to arrive at 12:45 for a 1:00 appointment. When I arrived and went to the window, I was told to sit down and a sign was then placed on the glass that said, “Will return at 1. “When I was placed in the exam room, I had to wait about 30 minutes before seeing the doctor. After examining me for a blocked ear, he gave me Flonase and advised me to come back for a hearing test. I am not sure I agree with the need for this.

He was inconsiderate, without much listening attention. Brought a female person inside that he didn't introduce or asked permit ion for presence. The place needs dusting, all over extension cord plugs and around the instruments. Performedthe necessary checkup but didn't really give care and consideration to reassure me as a patient.

Dr. Hecht was wonderful and would recommend him to anyone asking about him. The only downside was I was able to make my appointment on line with ease, it was close to an hour before I got to see the Dr. Didn't appreciate the wait, almost walked out.

I felt that he listened to me and treated me accordingly. He has ordered tests to get to the bottom of my problem. I felt like he cared and didn't rush our appointment.
