The test will identify the relevant food and substances associated with many types of inflammatory and metabolic disorders obesity, asthma, migraine, diarrhea, fatigue, attention deficit disorder, dermatitis etc….My office also offers various types of specialist such as Endocrinologist, Gastroenterology, Podiatrist, and Cardiologist. We are also up to date with technological systems such as electronic medical records (EMR), and e-prescription.

Puzzling mixed experience. Nice office. Really liked the desk staff and person who drew blood etc. They were all nice, smart, professional. The Doctor is eccentric in certain ways but I liked her. She spent time w me and really paidattention, was kind and seemed very smart. But afterwards, I called to ask them to call my pharmacy to renew a script. Each time they said OK, but didn't. I'd call back to ask what the problem was and they said they'd call me or the pharmacy back. Never did. My pharmacy also called them and got nothing. I got tired of calling. Very strange.

Dr. Gressel’s office was crowded when I arrived but I was taken promptly, 15 minutes before my scheduled appointment. Both Dr. Gressel and her physician’s assistant were professional, personable, thorough and compassionate. I was made tofeel comfortable throughout my visit and got in and out in a timely fashion - the way a checkup should be! I also found the reception staff to be friendly and instructive. Great neighborhood practice.

I have never felt so thoroughly confident that I’m getting the best possible care. Dr. Gressel exudes competence and professionalism, and she asked so many questions that felt like she really wanted to get to the bottom of issues I’m having.I didn’t get to see her for long because the office was packed, but she got as much info as possible in that time.

My experience with this doctor was not at all what I had expected - the office is small and dark, and it became clear to me quite quickly that it is very disorganized. I had a morning appointment during the weekdaythat was cutting into my workday - the appointment was at 9am and I anticipated that I would be able to make it to work by 11. This was not the case as I was made to wait almost an hour to be seen. Dr. Gressel herself is very nice with a good bedside manner, and I left the office a bit irritated that I was running behind to work, but also confident that I would return for my follow up appointment. However, I have not done so since my appointment was 3 months ago and I have yet to receive my lab results. I have been in contact with the office, as well as with Dr. Gressel herself, and the status of my lab results is still unknown. I will never return to this office, nor will I ever recommend anyone else ever waste their time and money by making an appointment here. Extremely disappointing.

She’s very good & knowledgeable. Only thing I didn’t like is she automatically sent my prescription to the pharmacy next to her before I could even tell her to send it to my pharmacist close to my home which is cheaper than hers.. hmm.

Dr. Grissel’s Office is a complete mess. The facility is small and overcrowded, the floors and wall look unclean, and they require patients to wait for inordinate amounts of time even for those who have booked appointments in advance. The doctorslook unorganized and walk into the waiting room themselves and quickly scream the next patients name. Very unprofessional. I never ended up seeing the doctor after waiting for 90 minutes, as I had another engagement to get to.

Although Dr. Gressel and the team were helpful once I arrived at the office, I have immense trouble contacting them between in-office visits. I have left several voicemail messages that were not returned. When I call during office hours, itis 50/50 that someone picks up. My ZocDoc appointments are inconsistently confirmed, so that I am left unsure as to whether or not I have an appointment. It is frustrating that I decided to pay the co-pay for Urgent Care rather than have to deal with the poor communication of this office.

Dr. Gressell is fashionable and professional. She is beyond thorough with your check up. I feared I may be anemic she tested all of my vitamins, which is very beneficial for your health and something I never knew was possible. Shereally cares about her patients and really tried to get me to stop smoking. I appreciate her practice.

Dr. Gressel herself was great. She was quick and efficient and also recommended natural remedies over writing a prescription for antibiotics. Her staff is extremely rude and unorganized. I filled out all of the forms before my appointmentand there was still an HOUR wait to see the doctor. When I asked them what was taking so long, they said they were waiting for my forms to be filled out even though everything was already signed and I had even paid my co-pay. They had a terrible attitude and weren't friendly or welcoming. If you don't want to spend 2 hours on a quick check-up, then don't go here.

It was my first appointment with this doc and she was about an hour late. Luckily the nursing staff here is very nice, as is reception. There's not much of a waiting area though, just a row of chairs pushed upagainst the wall. The doc when she arrived was very nice, and apologetic. I found it odd though that on my first visit she didn't review my medical history completely, and I had to call in to get the results of my tests.

Wait time is a little long but 100% worth it. She is incredibly professional and attentive, taking the time to really listen to health concerns and go through all the possible options. I've never felt rushed when I'm seeing her, whichI've felt in with other doctors. Dr. Gressel actually sits and talks to you.

I think the office took time because of patients being difficult and it was rarely on the end of the staff. It's a small office and it's hard to accommodate everyone when you have to deal with so many patients withso many different needs. All in all everyone was polite my visit was quick and I was able to make a follow up appointment and have my blood drawn very quick and painless. This was my first visit but it definitely left a positive impression.

Dr. Gressel is fine as a doctor but the problem is with her staff. I was injured on Feb 16th, got a next day appointment. The following week there was a follow up and I got a referral to a physicaltherapist. The paper referral was not adequate and the physical therapist wrote instructions for electronic referral and authorization. I called the Dr. and was told she was on vacation. One week later I took the instructions to the Dr.'s office and was told that they will call me when it's done. And that's the problem!! That was more than three weeks ago. Meanwhile I cannot go to a physical therapist and am in pain. I call and visit the Dr.'s office and now they are super rude. I am so upset and am looking to change my Dr. Done with her office!

I waited over an hour to be seen and then she wrote me a prescription and when I went to get it filled I found out she needed to pre-authorize it. My pharmacy tried calling her multiple times in a weekto get the authorization and her office never returned her calls. I tried calling the doctors office myself and they told me she was on vacation. I've been waiting for the prescription for over a week and have still not received because of the doctor.
