My Vist to Dr Ezra's office was excellent. I checkout his reviews on here also on google and he had a high rating. Now I see why. When I first arrived his Receptionist/nurse Stephanie pleasantly welcomed when I entered. I orginallywent to see Dr. Ezra's for my concerns with my Kidneys after meeting him I decided to have him as my internist too.. After filling out a small amount of paper work ( aprox 5 min) I waited approx 15-20 min before I was moved into an exam room, approx 10 min wait before the doctor entered ito the exam room. What I liked most about the Dr. was he introduced himself and greeted me with a hand shake. Most Doctors I have been to, come in and just start asking questions without a formal introduction, making you feel uncomfortable. Excellent bedside manners. A very thorough exam was performed. I will switch the rest of my family to Dr. Ezra.

This was my time visiting a doctor outside of a big hospital so I was a bit skeptical going here. I showed up a little early and had to fill out some paperwork which was straightforward. The check in experience simpleenough and took about 20 minutes until he saw me My first impression is that he was friendly and respectful. He asked me about myself and my reason for the visit. He then broke down what we would be doing and he was attentive. I expressed some concerns and he addressed them immediately. Overall I had a great experience and will return.

I was very upset that the office would not take my pay flex card for payment. They want cash or check. I don't have checks, I use my bank card and credit card for everything. My bank charges $78 dollars fora book of checks. My pay flex is a tax savings. I am upset that they are not up to date with modern technology such as credit card payments or Apple Pay or Capital One Wallet. I never carry that much cash on me. Plus they didn't seem to have my medical history from Zocdoc. Thats one of the reasons I like Zocdoc, all of my medications and dosages and surgeries and other information is all right there. I like

Excellent! Took the time to really listen to all of my mothers issues and made a plan to take more tests to evaluate her status. He spoke to us clearly and with respect and made us both feel comfortable. It wouldbe better if the exam rooms were a bit more sound proof, but other than that- I am totally happy with the care my mother is receiving so far.
