I was a first time patient going in for an general check up at the end of the work day. I arrived 20mins ahead of appointment time to fill out the onboarding paperwork as a new patient. I wasn't expecting anykind of special/impressive welcome. The secretaries were to my surprise nice/friendly even at the end of the day in small & cramped office space with tons of paperwork files behind them. I wasn't called back to see the doctor until 45+ mins after my initial appointment. This was not a surprise but was still frustrating especially after reading one of the signs on the wall, "Patients are seen by their appointment time, not arrival time." When I finally got to see Doctor Volpe, I couldn't have been more warmly welcomed and heard during my initial intake. After spending 30mins with him, (not your typical 15) I got the sense that he gives that kind of respect evenly to all his patients.

Solid guy who answered all of my questions and definitely made me feel at ease for starting a new round of prescriptions. Fit me in right away when I thought I had a chest cold that wound up being pneumonia! Big fan of Dr. Volpe.

This was my first visit with Dr. Volpe having just moved to the area. I was led to consider him due to the positive comments I had read on ZocDoc. My experience lived up to those reviews. I am very impressedwith his knowledge and interest in me as a patience. I am very happy with my selection of a primary care physician.

I'm a new patient and thought I was seeing Dr. Volpi today but he was not in so in was scheduled with his nurse practitioner. Although she was very sweet, for my first visit I would have preferred to see Dr.Volpi. I waited over an hour as well but the other patients in the waiting room informed me that it's not common to wait that long.

Dr. Volpe was very professional yet easy to talk to. He apologized for being a little late but he really wasn't. I walked in to the office, completed paper work and was called immediately. He didn't rush through the appointment. ThoughI don't need a doctor regularly at this point in life, I feel very comfortable going back when needed. The office staff was extremely friendly and down to earth, as were the other patients in the waiting area. It felt like a neighborhood gathering.

The wait time was ridiculous. My appointment was at 9 am but I wasn't seen until almost 10:30 am. On top of that, Dr. Volpe just strolled into the office at 10 am like he wasn't ridiculously late. As a doctor,he is pretty nice but he needs to run his office a lot better. Also they compact you all together in what is suppose to be a waiting room but its really just six chairs arranged by tv closely packed together. I wouldn't recommend this doctors office for those who have lives. Had to call out of work because of how long he took.

Dr Volpe was very personable and had great bedside manner, he took his time talking with me about all of my concerns. There were only two problems with his office, one was the waiting room was not large enough to holdall of the patients who were waiting so multiple people had to step outside and second I waited over 2 hours to go back to a room after my set scheduled appointment. I would recommend the do toe without question but the office I would not
