AWFUL !!! There is no other words to describe this place but AWFUL! None of the receptionists are nice. They are all rude and act as if your problems dont matter. Trying to make an appointment is a joke. They hangup on you multiple times or just leave you on hold for 15 + minutes. The wait to see Dr. Haimovic was 4+ hours. Yes, I said 4+ hours. My appointment was at 2 and I did not get into the office until 6:30pm. Then waited in his office for an additional hour. When I finally saw him he made everything short and sweet as if he didn't care about my situation. He was very insensitive. Didn't leave that office until 9:00pm. The whole experience was horrible. I really don't understand how they remain open with such rude and insensitive staff and doctors. I would never ever recommend this place to anyone!

Today was my first appointment with Dr. Haimovic. He was incredibly warm, attentive, engaged and personable. I heeded the advice of many and scheduled my appointment for 6:30am. I was seen by 6:45 (after I filled out my paperwork). He wasable to call the MRI facility and schedule me a convenient appointment just a few days away (since my condition was not an emergency), and was able to schedule me right away for a sonogram. Due to the thoroughness of his examination (this is a good thing!) and his desire to examine all possibilities (another good thing), I had two sonograms performed after my appointment, which took a little while. He then read the results and had his nurse convey those results to me, so that I did not have to wait for him to have a break in his patients. I would recommend him to everyone-- if you are concerned with accuracy, bedside manner, and being seen by an incredibly competent doctor, you might have to sacrifice expediency. Do not expect to be in and out of this office in 45 minutes. However, if you want to leave knowing that you are in good hands, you've come to the right place.

Got to the appointment 20 early then waited over almost 2 hour to be seen, then was sat in a office for another 30 min. Once I finally got to the doctor everything was so rushed! He might as well havepushed me out the door. Then once I left I realized I was never given my prescription for a very important blood exam I need done. No I must drive 30 min out of my way again to the office or they can mail it but the way they function I probably will never receive it! I work in healthcare and have never had patients wait / treated like this nor have I ever experienced this with any other Doctor.

Absolutely the best! with the walls of awards to prove it! First of all he makes early appointment I was seen at 6 am which was perfect cause I had work and need to be seen right away. The staff wasso friendly for having to be up so early!!! He was so kind and showed extreme concern. Asked me a bunch of questions, and made funny comments to make me comfortable since I'm sure he could tell i was nerves. Then he took me to a room where he examed me (which none of the other neurologist have done). He finally gave me the answers I was looking for and booked me right away for an MRI since his office has an MRI center on a Sunday! (didn't have to wait weeks for an appointment). His office made me comfortable since he has walls full of plaques saying for years his been voted best neurologist in nyc. When I left he said to me "don't give up on me, cause i won't give up on you, I will help you." I was touched since I've had horrible doctors for years that had not cared. I see why he is the best! And should be rewarded every month!
