I went in for annual physical and end up getting a massive bill. It was not explained to me why I must go through those tests and at no point of the appointment I was given the chance to deny thetests. I think this is unacceptable in terms of clearly communicating what the patient is getting into.

This doctor took several tests and hasn't returned any results in a month. I've called several times to get in touch with the doctor to get my results and each time I got a new excuse as to why the doctorcouldn't either (1) provide me the results or (2) why he hasn't responded to my request to be called.

The visit was ok. The doctor asked some questions and suggested the tests I should do. The waiting time in-between tests were around 20~30 mins, and I was fine with that. HOWEVER, it has been about TWO MONTHS since my visit,and I have not received any feedback or official results from them. I have called them 5 times for the past month, and their replies were always the same "ok, the doctor will call you back.". He NEVER calls me back. I need the results to show to my primary care doctor, thus I have to postpone my appointment for a month, and I do not know when will I receive the result. NOT RECOMMEND THIS OFFICE.

The facility is very old, and the lady at the front desk got all of my insurance information wrong. I received a bill and it was because she had input the wrong characters (this was not done over the phone). Iwill most certainly not go back to this doctor/practice.

Howard was very easy to get along with, which made me comfortable having the conversation that we did. That said, could've used more context and preface around some of his questions - particularly about my family's cancer history.
