Very professional office and staff. Dr. Kurtz is friendly and discusses all the options with you in an open and non-pushymanner. It was my first visit there, so he took the time to sit with me in his office before the exam to talk about history, regularities, concerns, or answer any questions I may have had.

Doctor visit was fine. After the appointment I went to check out and was asked to wait for a minute. I sat down and waited. Clearly they forgot about me and the desk ladies were chatting and chatting until I finally asked if I could check out and they acted as if I had not been waiting for over 10 minutes! No apology. A bit unprofessional. No one else was being helped.

I was highly impressed with the friendliness and professionalism of the office staff. I was also impressed with the doctor. I wish the follow up (of the office staff) would have been more timely, but once I called and told them how disappointed I was, the response was excellence. My only problem going forward with using this office to replace my long-time physician who no longer takes my insurance, is that they seem to have one phone number for all their offices and the telephone response is far from satisfactory. Example? I had visited the Midwood/Brooklyn office, and my phone call was answered in the Park Avenue office. They would not connect me, said they'd have the person I asked for call me right back, but that didn't happen. I had to try several more times, at different times and the next day, until I finally spoke to the person I needed.
