Verified Patient Reviews
You have to come early for your appointment but the doctor takes his time.
Always a wait.. but regardless a very good service by doctors who know their stiff ....
If I could explain the entire story of my visit with Mr. Fashakin you probably wouldn't believe me. Long story short, I wouldn't advise anyone to schedule an appointment with him. I never go to the doctor so I went with four simple things to address (allergies and such). After getting to my second bullet point he cut me off, wrote some stuff down, typed on the computer and prescribed me some medicine. He prescribed me some medicine with no explanation for anything and after I asked about something else I was dealing with, he told me verbatim "I don't know, I'm not God." Office wait was also two whole hours. Dont go.
He needs to be on time.
bed side manner was horrible
IT WAS NOT A GREAT VISIT THE FRONT DESK WORKER ARE VERY RUDE.
The doctors facility was extremely unorganized. The nurse at the front desk didn't do my required check in since I was a new patient until I asked her to do it. The doctor saw where I worked on my insurance card and said I should have no problem paying his fee because of where I worked. The doctor prescribed me 2 different type of medications since I told hi my issues. I asked him if he would like to get my historical information from my previous doctor since I just moved to the neighborhood and he told me me no because I told him all he needed to know in the 10 minutes of conversation we had. I took blood work and he never called me back to discuss my results or request for me to make a follow up appointment since my symptoms have been ongoing for 2 years. He charged me and never provided any feedback on what any next steps should be. I called him for my results and I was told my chart was closed therefore they could not discuss my results with me but I would need to come back for a new doctor visit to get a referral and get checked again. This doctor is only interested in receiving payment for horrible services.
The office opened at 2 I was here at 2 for my appointment it is now 4 pm and the doctor is still not in the office to see me . The staff keeps telling me that he is at his other office and will come soon but I waited for 2 hours and he's still a no show this is really inconvenient for me because I only have one day off and he is not even here to see me .
This is the most Unprofessional doctors office I've ever been too. they are highly unorganized, and they don't like to take responsibility when they mess up! My daughter went there for a routine physical. First off I got there 20 minutes before my appointment time and they already had 20 patients waiting to see the doctor! I asked about my appointment and they said they didn't have it in the system even though I received numerous confirmations about my appointment! the receptionist proceeded to explain to me that its not her fault, its the "other girls" fault that manages the Zoc Doc appointments. I let her know, that I didn't care about the excuses I just wanted to see the doctors, and I did......2 HOURS LATER!!!!!!! fast forward 3 days later, my daughter had to go back and read the results of the PPD test and so we go back to fill out a form that she needed for summer camp, and they tell us that they can fill it out unless I bring my daughter back in to do a vision test. I told them they did the vision test when she was there! The girl who did it didn't put the results in the file!!!! I am just disgusted with this doctors office. don't go there unless you want to leave completely frustrated. on another note, I actually liked the doctor, but if I have to deal with all of that to see him, its not worth it!!!!!!!
He knows exactly what he's doing and will diagnose every aspect and relative condition to your problem in a short time ... Staff is good and are professional...
Explain every thing so i understand what he was talking about
Appointments must be irrelevant to these people. It took 3 hours from the point I walked up to the front desk to seeing the doctor. Office: Small, crowded, dirty, smells bad Staff: Rude, dismissive, lazy, incompetent The only reason I came to this place is because my regular doctor wasn't available and I needed a prescription fast. I checked in online and sent all the information forms before coming here and for some reason they didn't have anything aside from my name and number. I had to fill out the form again, answer the same questions to a nurse who took my weight and blood pressure (even though I told her I only needed a prescription) and then answer the same questions to the doctor. Aside from this the doctor was quick to examine me and told me said I could pick up my prescriptions. I was in his office for less than a minute.
worst doctor and not helpful .
Your office is wack
The office staff is very unprofessional. They're unorganized, unprofessional, and very rude. The doctor yells at his patients. Making an appointment in this place is a joke, its first come first serve. I'm waiting in the office and the doctor didn't haven't seen a a patient in an half an hour.and when you finally see him he's getting ready to make breakfast along with half his staff.
Dr Fashakin was fair...knowledgeable
I had to wait a long time to see the doctor not because the office was slow,the patients were late, all came late before me and delayed patients seeing the doctor
It was good
Medication doctor gave me was excellent
Thorough, caring, will answer any question you have, so the more you know yourself, the more detailed info the Dr. is gladly willing and able to provide for you! Its always good to understand health and illness so that you can ask your Dr. intelligent questions and I believe that this Dr. appreciated my preparedness
I was looking forward to my visit and establishing a new doctor based on Dr. Fashakin's reviews. However, when I arrived 15 minutes before my appointment the office was overflowing with patients. The front desk seemed in disarray and when I finally made it through the line to check-in I was greeted with an aggressive "I told them not to take any new patients." The employee then through her arms up and stormed away before coming back and telling me to try to take a seat if I could find one, it was going to be a while... I hope the office demonstrates a more professional tone on a day-to-day basis. Sadly, I won't be going back to find out.
Dr. Fashakin is so relaxed, knowledgeable, and professional that one feels at ease right away. He seems to truly delight in his work. He was thorough and unhurried; very rare qualities these days. The receptionist, too, is wonderful. She is approachable, relaxed, and capable in all she does. This is a great office :)
Dr. Fashakin is a very pleasant and charismatic doctor. He did yell at me because I wasn't sitting in the "Next Patient" chair, but what was I supposed to do? Tell the lady already sitting there to get up? I actually found that funny rather than insulting so I just laughed and brushed it off. During my visit with Dr. Fashakin, he seemed to be knowledgeable about my condition and was attentive while I explained my issues. I only say "seemed to be knowledgeable" because I still have to give his treatment time to work. I hope it does! My visit with Dr. Fashakin was a bit brief but he had a growing number of patients waiting so it's understandable. As for the office itself, I am less enthusiastic about it. The office needs a serious upgrade. It was very messy and unorganized. The staff could also be more professional. They weren't rude, but their lack of professionalism even led to their inefficiency. The receptionist referred me to another assistant just to call my pharmacy, then the assistant referred me back to the receptionist so that the receptionist instead could do it. I didn't appreciate the back and forth for such a simple task when neither of them were busy. Lisa, on the other hand was very helpful and was willing to assist me so she instead updated my pharmacy info after I decided to call myself. There was also an issue with my ZocDoc appointment. I checked-in and completed my paperwork online and the receptionist said I was not in their system or schedule. The mishap with the scheduling didn't affect my appointment but I guess it's best to call and confirm with the office when you book thru ZocDoc until they get the hang of it. All in all, I would definitely visit Dr.Fashakin again. He was very welcoming and understanding. I just wish the office was more inviting.
Dr. Fashekin is a very good doctor, however, I believe all doctors should be on time. He was one hour and twenty minutes late today, and booked a full schedule.
He's AMAZING . He treats his patients so nice warm smile and welcomes you. He's very helpful don't let the appearance of the office turn you away he's extremely nice and smart!
Very. Friendly to my wife and son. Also great sense of humor
I thought he was a nice guy and I would go back again.
Sexist sign on the wall, I was very uncomfortable. Extremely long wait time, doctor seemed to want to get me out of the room as soon as possible. To top it all off, he wasn't able to help me. Did not provide care for all that I need.
The staff were very professional and courteous. The wait was not long and they processed me through as quickly as they could. The doctor was very clear and informative.
It was too many ppl ,and not enough staff, had a lot of patients,but the wait was the worst.
The doctor was nice and excellent.he answered all my questions.he always took care of his patients but the only thing I don't like is the appearance of his office its awful and doesn't related to a doctor office he should renovate his office plz change the look of your office.you are excellent doctor don't let this little thing affect you position
Its was fine just like most doctor's offices.
Did not call in prescription. Have to go to emergency room to get meds for allergic reaction.
I did not like the wait time.
The Dr. was a good doctor. Very personable, but! I made a 2:45 appt through zocdoc the night prior. The reps at zocdoc called about 2 hours before to confirm my appt which I thought was pretty cool, but they notified me that they were unable to reach the office so I might want to call to be on the safe side to reaffirm. So I did, and when I called they had no appt for me, kept putting me on hold, the called kept getting disconnected, and when I wasnt getting disconnected, 4 different people were putting me on hold and asking me the same questions, whats your name, what time appt, we dont have anything here. Finally someone said for me to come in now, which I was doing anyway. When I arrived, it was as if noone had an appt and everyone was a walk in. No one there were held to there appt schedules. From my 2:45 appt I finally seen the Dr. about 4:15.
It was good
He was very good and explain everything in details and his staffs was good too. i recommend to everyone.
By far the worst experience I've ever had I rescheduled only due to the fact that it is imperative that I have my physical done
The assistant was very unprofessional . It was a very cold day there was no heat in the office. And I had to take my clothes off. The assistant did not use gloves when drawing blood . When I ask her she said she was being very careful that she do not stick herself. I told her it was not really about he what about the patient ?. She said well you are right . She did not was her hands for one second .
It was a great visit and they were fast ... I'm bringing my whole family here...best doctor visit ever..
It was great
Not a big fan of this clinic at all. Clinics interior and exterior is dilapidated. They do not even have guard rails for the elderly to walk up the stairs. The Doctor is unattentive and was watching television for the first few minutes of the visit. Your information is discussed at an ear shot if other patients. Would not come here again.
First impressions are important. I almost missed the office because the signage was a bit obscured. Once inside, I was still a little unsure. The assistant pulled up my pre-registration through zoc.doc, collected copies of my insurance info, took my vitals and verified my complaints. I was in to see the doctor withing 45 minutes of arriving at the office. Dr. and Mrs. Fashakin were very polite and thorough. Yes, his wife sat in on the consultation. I love the family affair type atmosphere. He seemed very knowledgeable about many of my issues. Made it clear we would tackle them head on, one at a time. He seemed very interested in getting some resolution for me. I am aware that I am not an easy patient but i left feeling like this was a doctor I would like to continue seeing.
The visit went fine the staff are not too friendly but did their job the dictor was great fast and corteous but the wait was terrible i waited for over an hour to get seen !!
Overall very good I find him to be highly knowledgable concerning my health issue
Dr. Fashakin has been my doctor for many years. Over 10 years I would say. However, I never had serious medical conditions that needed immediate attention before. Until now he had been ok but recently I received urgent lab results. (the lab wrote emergency results please contact patient) and he didn't look or care to contact me about my results. I went in for something else and it happened that his PA stumbled across my urgent results. I waited 20 days before I was told my my urgent results and in the mean time my symptoms worsened. Sadly I will be changing this doctor because I feel that he has taken on too much responsibility and can no longer give each patient the attention they deserve.
Dr. Fashakin has been my doctor since I am 10 years old. I am now 27 years old and I would never change him. He is a wonderful doctor and really cares about his patients. I recommend him for both pediatrics and adults.
It was satisfactory, but I felt a bit rushed when seeing the doctor and realized only after I had left that I had forgotten for lack of time to mention one of my other health concerns. But I will bring that up at my next visit. Overall, it was quite satisfactory except for the fact that I did feel the Dr. Did not have enough time for all his patients. Of course the office was closed when i Arrived early for a 4pm appointment. and the doors did not open till 430. Stuff happens I guess. At least I got my basic prescriptions that I needed and seen by doctor and a follow up appointment. These days this is good... twenty years ago things were better.
I will like to see him when I am ready to. The reception was okay.
Waste of time.
visit with doctor good to get in and out,but office is very dated and dark.
