The office is only open one day a week. And so literally a week's load of patients are all crammed together for one afternoon. So for customers it's a logistical nightmare.

The visit was HORRIBLE. Upon arrival I filled out the necessary paperwork they would have put me in a room they put me in the room with the physician assistant who I didn't want to see when I requested to see the doctor that I made the actual appointment with the doctor came in did not introduce himself barely look at my knee or the MRI that I brought and then told me that he can refer me to see a knee doctor. I stood there looking confused since prior to my appointment, he knew that I was coming for a consult for my knee. And if he felt like he did not want to be bothered treating me, then why did you take my Co pay. I went to this office after reading reviews, however after personally coming from there today, I now know that the previous reviews are DEFINITELY FALSE!

Never again. The professional is on Zocdoc, but does not respect the appointments. Yesterday his office cancelled 2 hours after confirming the Zocdoc appointment. Today his office had a different appointment time than the Zocdoc confirmation. Very unprofessional and disappointing.

I was hesitant before I went to my appointment today due to the reviews. Everyone commented on the long wait. I had a 9:00 appt. with Dr. Katsigiorgis and was taken in at around 9:15. Everyone in the office was pleasant and courteous. The Dr. came in within 10 mins.that I was brought into the room.He was very professional and greeted both myself and my husband. He was a good listener and examined me and reviewed my MRI in a very reasonable amount of time. He explained my options and gave me details.I did not feel rushed. I did print out my paper work at home off the computer before I arrived but I still feel everyone was very efficient. The only thing I might add is that the office and examining rooms could use a big update in decorating. Everything else was great!!

Dr K was the best the rest of the experience sucked my apt was 4pm and I got out of there at 6pm to think you are going to bill me please note that I will be sending you a bill for my time as no one in your office cares about the waiting time that I had to go though,i was told you just have to wait that really isn't a good answer.To book 15-18 for 4pm is a little much

He is a nice enough guy, i guess...kind of hard to tell much in the three minutes that you see him. We were there waiting for a little over two hours and then seen by the nurse practitioner. After they sent us into an xray , Dr Kats came into the room to say he needed an Mri. They do the Mri on premises and told us we could wait another hour to get it done the same day. Like idiots we chose to wait around some more. After another hour went by, they told us they were behind and it would be another hour. To make a long story a tiny bit shorter, we left and are getting the Mri somewhere else because we couldn't stay. So if you are planning on seeing the doctor...make sure you can devote your entire day to the five minutes that you will be seeing him!!

It was definitely a high-volume office, more than usual. When I mentioned that my HIP center did not have an orthopedic on staff and that was why I was referred there, his response was quite positive. He said lucky for us. He handled the situation with such composure. Luckily, he had a great support staff. It was a long wait, but I was reading a good book on my Kindle so I did not mind.

I thought that Dr. K was very nice and professional. The office is the only problem. When you go for an appointment, expect a 2-3 hour wait. The office is packed and standing room only. There are at least 25 people ahead of you. The office also has additional seating on the bottom floor which is usually packed as well. The parking in the building is terrible.

The worst office I have ever dealt with! I arrived ten minutes early for an 11:15 appt and there were 19 scheduled appointments for the same Dr ahead of me. The receptionist was abrupt and the wait time was several hours. She acted like she was doing me a favor! No effort was made to let me know about expected wait time before I arrived Clearly the office is run like a cattle mill! I was able to find a doctor who respected my time after lodging a complaint with my insurance company

It was a mad house, due to emergencies. The girls in the office were spectactular. I would have had a nervous breakdown. Amellia was fantastic, such poise and control. The girls in the office who helped me with my knee brace were great. The others at the main desk were clearing up the mess and doing a fantastic job. Having three offices together in one day. They deserve a RAISE.
