The appointment occurred about 1 1/2 hours after the time scheduled about 3 weeks prior; not sure whether that is areflection on the scheduler or the doctor. It was my first meeting with the doctor, and it remains to be seen if the recommended course of treatment will work.

The doctor dismissed my input and I suffer every day after he did surgery on me. When I told him thatI consulted other doctors, he said, in front of a female medical student, a word that ZOCDOC felt not appropriate to display. He further labeled me as doctor shopping in an email he sent to me later.

The wait time was longer than normal. It was due to a computer glitch from the online appt made through ZocDoc. Once the administrative steps and paper were completed, it took little time for Dr. Argintar to see me and deal with my medical problem.

I have had chronic ankle instability for over 6 years and no doctor ever took me seriously before Dr Argintar. He immediately got me an MRI and ran me thru all options. He offered referrals for consults for surgery. I am extremely pleased.

It was great. He's progressive, looking to alternative treatments rather invasive surgeries and injections. Liked that he didn't treat me like I was ignorant about my own body, and validated what pain I was experiencing.

Not happy about what I was told about the recovery timeline after surgery and the actual reality of the recovery. I was under the impression I would be walking in 2 weeks. Looks like I won't walking for much longer.

Good visit but I think I spent less than 10 minutes total time with the doctor. It felt like a rushed visit although I was happy that he ordered x-rays right away before making a diagnosis. The facility was very niceand clean and the reception staff was very friendly and helpful.

Dr. Argintar was extremely professional, was able to assess the issue quickly and make a quick referral. The reason for the wait was that the building’s fire alarm went off and the building evacuated briefly. Front desk staff were friendly.

I think he is very knowledgeable and is very quick to assess. He spent all of 20 minutes with me and rushed off to his new appointment. I felt a bit rushed. Off to Xray where I waited for the tech,who I think was new. Got 2 Xrays and then waited for Dr. Argintar to share his feedback on my xrays. He's very knowledgeable and very quick to assess but again. I felt rushed after a 35 minute wait. But I would recommend for his diagnostic acumen and a pleasant bedside manner.

Dr. Argintar and his second were great. I felt very comfortable with them. Dr. Argintar thoroughly explained what was wrong with my ankle, showed me on th that MRI and really made me feel a lot better, that it just neededmore time to heal. I will come back to see him again if I'm not better in 6 weeks. I left smiling. Thank you doctors.

Doctor Evan Argintar is a very good doctor. However, even at his office there are always long waits -- very typical in the USA. All the doctors in the hospital were almost over 1 hour waits. It seems that the people(formerly MedStar Hospital office) who schedule the appointments and the office staff expect that it is what the public has to do to see a doctor. However, I have lived in over 10 countries long-term and worked in another 25 short-term, and never had to wait so long as is expected in the USA. Americans have no idea how it works in other countries.
