This was my first appointment but I was pleased with the overall visit. I was seen within minutes upon arrival, the staff was polite and helps the office run efficiently, and Dr. Jean-Baptiste knows his stuff. I will be back!

The office rescheduled my appointment for 15 minutes later and I was seen right on time at the later time. The med student who saw me was warm, courteous, and well-informed. I then waited quite a long time (over 30 min) to see the doctor, who was professional and responsive, although he didn't introduce himself. The office staff were great.

Dr. Gary Jean-Baptiste was nice himself, but I only said about 4 words to him. His nurse was very kind and educated and worked quickly but it is a training place for students studying to be doctors. All the students there were very unprofessional and the one that came to me didn’t know much of what she was doing and openly admitted to me that she didn’t know what what she was doing. So this place seems like a hit or miss depending on the student that does your exam. Also please expect to be there for at least 2 hrs.

He doesn't seem to care about his patients. Didn't remember my name or condition even though I had seen him two days prior. Hurried me along without asking any questions or seeming concerned for my wellbeing. Would not recommend this doctor to anyone.

Love Dr. Jean-Baptiste. It was a full waiting room full of sick people, so it took a while for him to make him way to my waiting room when I finally got called back. But normally, when I go to see him, the wait time is not that long.

The doctor was very kind and professional, as were the nursing staff. They also play really great music! However, I went in for a simple physical and the entire process took 2 hours. Lots of waiting in the waiting room, waiting while in the examination room, waiting for the nurse to come, waiting for the doctor to come. I heard other patients getting frustrated as well. My appointment was during the day on a weekday so after work hours might be even worse. Not a good place to go if you're pressed for time.

You will wait between 1 and 2 hours minimum. I won't be coming back. Dr. Baptiste is fine, competent, but the operation is absolutely in shambles.

I liked him, very professional and listened well. I did have to wait in the examination room for about 20 minutes after the nurse left and before the dr came in but other than that, the visit went great.

This place severely overbooks for how understaffed it is. I had an appointment for 1:30. Got in, filled out some forms and then waited 20 minutes to go to the patient room - despite the fact I was the only person in the waiting room, I walked by 6 rooms each one had other patients sitting on the bed waiting to see a doctor. It then took 45 minutes for the doctor to come see me. He spent 2 minutes with me and then we walked out to order a prescription. He seemed nice and I’d go again if that wait wasnt so brutal given the little time we actually spent together.

Overall my visit here was very good. The receptionist, nurse (or PA), and Dr. Jean-Baptiste were all friendly, knowledgeable, professional, and helpful. They all took time to answer my questions and concerns, and Dr. Jean-Baptiste in particular did a great job answering my concerns about the medicines he was prescribing.

While the doctor was fine (routine physical), it was incredibly painful to see him due to the fact that there is a grossly incompetent receptionist working the desk. After waiting in the room for 30 minutes, she told me the doctor had "stepped out". After demanding a refund and asking for them to contact my work to ask for my hours off to be reinstated, she walked away texting on her phone - while I was talking mid-sentence! She stood in the back of the clinic texting and I assumed she was trying to locate the doctor. I asked her if he gave any sign of when he would be back and she said "oh he's here" while her phone gave away that she was just talking to people on facebook chat. So not only did she not communicate that he would be stepping out "while I filled out my paperwork" (that I had already filled out online), but she failed to communicate that he was already back! Beyond unprofessional and refused to apologize or make clear any part of the process. If she was the person who called me the day before to confirm my appointment but hung up on me mid-speech I wouldn't be surprised. I will absolutely never in my life be going back here for care, until they can revise their hiring practices of staff.

Appointment was very quick - did not wait long to be seen. Was disappointed by the lack of quality in equipment used for general check up/intake information. Did not feel the MD appropriately provided me with the care I needed, yet I'm sure I'll still see a large bill sent my way in the near future. Only came here because of location convenience, but definitely would not return if it weren't for that alone.

I came to this office looking for a doctor that took my plan from Puerto Rico that is supposed to have coverage in the mainland. When I went they told me I had to cover it out of pocket cause they couldn't verify if my plan could cover it. I didn't have much time so I did it and they gave me an invoice that I could take to the insurance to claim it later. They took over an hour to attend me. The lady was fairly friendly, the doctor was kind of impersonal and never really told me any specifics about what to do and what not to do when taking the drugs prescribed, etc. He told me the results from my test would be available in a certain amount of time, so I called at that time later on and they told me they take longer than that, and that I should call, not expect a call from them. Never again.

I came to the appointment 30 minutes early and was still not seen until an hour after the appoitment time. Dr. Jean-Baptiste's bedside manner was decent at best. I'm not sure if I will keep him as a PCP.

I usually visit my doctor once a year for my physical. I require referrals for preexisting conditions and once I convey this over the phone to the assistants they are more than on the ball and willing to accommodate me.
