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.

Went for an annual physical and had a chest x-ray, blood work, EKG, echocardiogram, and breathing test done. Dr. Antosofsky is terrific! Great listener, genuine, and doesn't rush you at all. Staff was great as all, efficient and got me through all the tests in a timely fashion.

Dr. Antosofsky was very helpful, the remainder of the staff however was not. I had to wait an hour for an xray and watch 7 people go ahead of me. When the nurse had asked the technician where my papers were she was very rude.

I would avoid, if possible. I've had two relatively routine visits with Dr. Antosofsky, and yet his office was just really careless and made things needlessly complicated each time. It's just not worth it to go back. The first time, I was starting out at a new University in the area, and just figured I should get a check-up and choose a new primary care that isn't a pediatrician. As a sexually active student, during the visit I figured I should ask the Dr. for an STD test as part of the check-up (even though I knew it would be negative). That was a mistake. Antosofsky seemed bizarrely aghast (/randomly judgmental) about what's always been a totally routine test my previous Dr.'s even offered to me if I forgot to ask. I really learned to regret asking for the test, as during the entire process I had to explain multiple times to not just Antosofsky or nurses, but inexplicably reception(!) that I wanted an std test. Moreover, they apparently didn't bother to even submit the paperwork to my insurance (which makes no sense) so 1 month later I get a bill in the thousands for a procedure my insurance of course covered (and then, of course, have to call reception then get transferred to billing, explaining each time that I'm calling about an std test). Now 6 months later, this next appointment (for routine vaccinations), has basically the exact same problem. His office apparently doesn't carry one of the vaccines, so he writes me a prescription for the vaccine and tells me to go to a pharmacy to get it (which sounded weird, I've never picked up a prescription of a literal vaccine injection before). Unsurprisingly, I get to the pharmacy and he made a mistake. Only Dr.'s are meant to give the injections, so of course the insurance won't cover it unless it's received at a Dr.'s office, and I apparently completely wasted my time and need to make another appointment. Now normally this would be easily fixed by just calling the office to let them know the pharmacy/insurance says they need to order the vaccine themselves and can't prescribe it... Nope, not easy at all in Dr. Antosofsky's office! I inexplicably have to explain the details of my (100% routine) vaccines again and again, as I'm transferred 3 times--which honestly, I don't even understand how they can have so many phone lines for such a small office--before finally being told, someone would "talk to the office manager who orders vaccines and call you right back". Of course, I never get called back. If I can't get the person who basically orders the pens on the phone, I can't imagine being able to easily talk to my Dr if I had any important issues or questions. Honestly, going to Dr. Antosofsky is like a horrible mix of landing in both a Dostoyevsky novel and a 20 hour customer service call with Time Warner Cable.

Doctor is great but the office is very dirty and disorganized. It really wasn't a clean facility so that's never a good feeling when you're at the doctor's office as you question how sterile they keep the right things and follow good procedure to prevent germ spread...

This was my first visit with this Dr. He was referred to me by my co-worker and I was so pleased with him, he was very kind and pleasant. He is very thorough. I enjoyed my visit and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a primary care. He is going to be my primary care doctor from now on. My appointment was for 3 and I got there at 1:47 the office was very busy but I was in by 3:00. Tuesdays are very busy. The person who took me in was very nice also. I am pleased

I called and booked an appointment immediately because I felt terrible. I had a fever, headache, vomiting, and horrible aches. After going to the appointment I was told to call back tomorrow to get my blood results and see what the doctor could do for me. I called the next day at noon and they told me I missed him. I called the following day and they transferred me to a machine, I never got s response. I wasn't called back until Monday... 5 days after my appointment and by then I had already suffered through the virus on my own. It was completely unprofessional and left such a bad taste in my mouth.

As a college student needing a quick annual check-up, everything was very satisfactory and professional--no complaints. Although it doesn't strike me much as the type of place that would work out well for someone looking to get to know their doctor very well. Despite being a private practice contained in only 1 floor, it really gave the feeling of a large impersonal hospital trying to move you in and out.
