My problem with the fluid on my knee is still present. Unless you live local or have a lot of spare time on your hands this isn't the place to go.

We were very impressed. He knew just how to treat my case. He and his staff were very knowledgeable and professional and thorough. Since we were traveling far from home it was most important to be able to make next-day appointmentsfor my first and follow-up appointments. Highly recommend Dr. Kagan.

I Think Dr. Kagan is a great doctor, but because of the inefficiency of zocdoc is why I had to wait so long for the doctor.

I have seen Dr. Kagan on several occasions; he is always efficient, personable, and professional. On my most recent visit "they" were running an hour or so behind; however, the staff was responsive to patients' concerns and readily apprisedthem of wait times. Having worked in health care myself, I am conscious of timing - sometimes things run afoul of neat schedules and I am comforted knowing that my physician and his staff devote time as needed, not always as scheduled.

The office staff and physician were very pleasant and professional. The waiting area was crowded, I had a 3pm appt, was not seen by the physician's assistant until 4:40, left the facility at 5:04. While I understand that physicians get backed up, this was not respectful of my time.

He was efficient and professional. As were the PA's. The person taking my history however had me feeling like I was over-reacting to any pain and inconvenience. Overall a good visit. Glad I went there
