He went right to the point according to my chief complaint! The issue was they had walk ins who were seenbefore me who scheduled an appointment and a lot of confusion.

I arrived 15 min before my appointment and was not seen until an hour after my appointment was due - there was an issue with my insurance. I understand things happen but they should inform patients of why it’s taking so long. When I was getting blood drawn, the door was left wide open which is not appropriate. I was then asked if I even wanted to see the doctor. I told the nurse that I was there for a physical so yes, I would like to. The physical itself was fine. The doctor checked everything she was supposed to and more however it’s been two weeks since my appointment and I still have not received my test results. The office said it would take a week, I called back the following Sunday and no one answered nor called me back. I called again and again and no one is calling me back which is unacceptable. I understand that if “nothing is wrong or concerning” they won’t call but I have a family history of high cholesterol which I know I now have. My parents are also doctors so I explained I won’t need to come back to get the results , they can email it to me - still no test results. If you are going to get a physical, I don’t recommend this practice.

So weird!!!!! I came in and was seen by the nurse practitioner who was very friendly. Things got so weird after. A lady dressed in black with really long fake lashes comes to me giving me her opinion about my health. Then she asks me for my hand rubs the center and touches her necklace. She then takes me to doctor Ilya who is dressed in black as well, with a really thick gold chain, and really long black loose hair. The lady and him had a disagreement in front of me about my availability and she continued to give her opinion about my health. Come to find out she was his wife who sat in the room to question me in private. I don’t believe she had any expertise. How would I know if they both wore all black and did not have a white coat such as the nurse practitioner did.

I was impressed with Dr. Burshteyn's bedside manner. He was very attentive and sensitive to my comments. He also considered my insurance policy coverage and worked around it to lower the final cost for my medication. Just one minor note: The office staff had lunch during my visit (at their desks), so the waiting room smelled of pizza and soup, and not of the usual sterile clinic-y smell. I was a bit nauseous when I arrived and the food aromas made it a little worse. I probably wouldn't have noticed if I wasn't nauseous though.

They had me waiting 3 weeks for a physical. The lab results came back 3 days after my visit. Never received a call from the doctor office. I decided to come in and check the physical was the same way I handed it to the doctor.

I walked in and instantly thought “WTH” the receptionist just looked up and didn’t bother saying hello until I said good morning. Then! the doctor steps to the front desk this man had a flashy blouse like top (picture flashy Versace in the 90’s) with a Cuban chain hanging out of his shirt. Oh and “blouse” was opened so you see a bit of his chest with his of course Cuban link chain exposed. No way. No bed side manners and I haven’t even signed in? No thanks. I don’t mind paying for warm greetings as I walk in. And I like my doctors a little boring when it comes to attire and professionalism.

He listens to all your concerns and makes sure they are addressed before leaving. He works with you to come up with the best possible solutions. I had two major surgeries and he insisted I see him for my follow ups. He ran test to make sure I was on the proper road to a full recovery.

Hardly any wait time but he was ready to send me to physical therapy without an MRI. The physical therapist sent me back to get the MRI consent. I got the MRI and they sent the results to my doctor but he claimed he never got it and had scheduled an appointment with me to basically tell me that he didn't get the MRI documents. When I said I would call my insurance company, the MRI documents magically appeared. I was prescribed some medication but the pharmacist was confused that the doctor didn't give any instructions for the medication. When I brought it up to the doctor, he told me to go online. So, no, I won't be returning to a doctor who basically told me to get my information on WebMD.

Dr. B. is excellent. He addressed all my concerns and made sure they were handled appropriately. I have seen him 3 times so far. Once was to get medical clearance for a cosmetic procedure. He ran all the necessary test and did all the blood work without me even asking. He then insisted I came back to see him post sx for a follow up to make sure everything went well. I had to have another medical procedure (non cosmetic) and he was right there to do the follow up. He can seem a little abrupt but he's really a sweetheart. I am happy to be in his care.

He couldn't even help us nor diagnose what the problem is. If I didn't hand him the results from the ER he wouldn't be able to tell us anything. He pretty much read us the report from the hospital. I don't need to see a Dr. that would do just that, I can do that myself. Then he offered an ambulance service (to make extra money). So disappointed with the reviews he got from others since its obviously inaccurate!

The visit was overall good, the Dr. Was really nice and accommodating I only had one issue. When we got there the waiting room was essentially empty except for one other person and full of empty seats. The reception desk called me and my Fiance up to the desk to ask a couple questions and one of there employees (with black inch thick eye makeup in a circumference around her eyes, seriously not trying to be rude it was a little scary) this employee while on a personal cell phone call (extremely loudly) went into the waiting room to the one chair my Fiance left her purse on and our sweaters, without saying excuse me or asking or saying anything at all took it upon herself to take my Fiance purse and sweaters and pick them up and move them to a different chair so she could sit in the chair we were using ... completely rude and disrespectful you don't touch a strangers purse or personal belongings never mind that she was petty enough to do that cause she wanted that chair!!! Uhh if you go to this Dr beware of the larger woman, blonde hair and clown face. Other then that everything else was really good!
