Dr. Senechek is a very gifted, fabulous-very comforting, very thorough, very friendly, kind and compassionate. What I noticed and experienced in Dr. Senechek is, he pays attention to what I say and is a very thorough doctor and for sure many doctor lack of this. Whenever I had a problem and needed help, his assistance always quick to accommodate not just me but I often hear from others as well. Dr. Senechek has so much patience and he listened, explain everything in details and help to make me feel comfortable even he follow up with other specialist who is taking care of me to understand how the treatment is going. Bottom line, this is what a patient needs a doctor like Dr. Senechek and I can’t thank him enough for his compassion and professionalism!

Dr. Senecek is a doctor's doctor. He is thorough, clear and inspiriing. If only all doctors had the same outlook on the profession that he does we would all be better off. The term health care professional applies here. He really cares about his patients health and he is always professional in the way he talks with you. I am 72 years old and have the feeling he will try to get me to live forever.

Doctor was more talkative than most and explained the medical procedures and results, but did so very rapidly. Felt like I was being speeded along both times. The last time some paperwork was left incomplete which caused me to have to go back again.

He was rude and unprofessional, not even apologizing for my hour long wait. His assistant was a little bit nicer and at least conversational, but still not very apologetic. I got the impression that "general check-ups" weren't his thing, but I expected more after telling him this was my first check-up in 10 years (I feel like that makes someone want to care a bit more about their patient's health). I paid for a visit and blood tests and never received any info back from him about the results. It's now been over 3.5 months, and I have decided that I shouldn't wait any longer. Not worth taking a half day at work, save yourself some money and frustration.

Pretty bad. Office was the least professional medical environment I've ever been in. that didn't bother me too much actually. It felt more like a crappy college professors office than a medical office. 2 things really made it bad. First, I was running late and got there at 10am for my 10am appointment. There was no receptionist. So I sat in this weird tiny waiting room for an hour before speaking to someone. Second, I found him on Zocdoc by looking up "Travel Medicine". He was an internist not a travel med specialist, but I assumed that he had experience with travel medicine since he was listed under travel medicine. After the hour wait, he told me that he doesn't do travel medicine, I need to go to the public health clinic for that. My Zocdoc note to the doctor when I made the appointment was that I was looking for a "Travel Medicine Consolation." This was a weird facility. The Dr. is a bit off putting. And this experience was 100% waste 3 hours.

Oh a fan of this doctor or his front office. They charged me hundreds for a follow up where all he did was tell me I was very healthy and had me take vitamin d tablets. He said he would call me on the phone if everything was okay and I kept trying to call to get results and o was told by his front office to come in for my review. Months of back and forth and threats of reporting him to he state led him to say my account balance was zero, but then I got a bill from him still! I paid it off to be done with him. Never again.
