Doctor spent very little time with me, just ordered some tests & went on with his day. Not very thorough compared to other doctors I have seen. After ordering the tests, I never heard back from the doctor regarding the results.When I called the office, they told me he was on vacation--would have been nice to know that beforehand, or perhaps he could have had the courtesy to ask another member of his practice to follow up. After I called, another doctor from the practice looked at my test results; someone from the office called me and told me I had a "minor sinus infection" and that they had called in some prescriptions for me. At the time of my visit, I had already been on multiple antibiotics & steroids for nearly a month. Despite this, I went back for allergy testing, expecting that I'd see Dr. Briskin again--but no, he wasn't even in the office that day. They didn't offer, but I set up a follow-up appointment with him anyway--since I'm still sick, for about six weeks now. That appointment was set for today--but when I called them to ask if they had any other available times today, they didn't have me on his schedule at all. Even though I scheduled the appointment in person, and I have an appointment card in my possession that was filled out by their office person. The office staff were very pleasant; however, I will no longer waste my time with Dr. Briskin, who seems to treat patients like they are wasting HIS time.

First the front office staff is very rude. Second Dr. Briskin is a nice doctor he completed my surgery well, but after that at the follow up visit he basically rush me out the office and really didn't check me outto make sure i was healing ok. Then he doesn't fill out the required forms for me to get my short term diabibilty appoved. And then i get no return calls from the office. Also if you live out of state and get any procedure done that requires more presciptions, they do not call them in, you have to drive all over to wherever there is a doctor at to get a prescripton. Wish i would of stayed away from this practice

The office staff was very friendly and I didn't wait long at all. The doctor wasn't rude but just wasn't friendly. Every doctor is different and I don't really care if he is friendly as long as he's thorough. I workwith doctors all day so I know how tough the job can be. I don't want to sound like I'm complaining either. It's just a feeling I had when I was with him. He's not very talkative and just seemed like he wasn't very interested. I don't know him so I don't want to seem like I'm judging him. It's just the first impression I got from him wasn't very nice. I just felt uneasy. I am still going to follow up with him. Maybe it was a bad day. We will see next time.

Like a majority of medical offices, the wait time & co-pay was not worth the quick assessment/treatment. The assessment/treatment was more so a kicking the can further down the road. Nursing staff was very personable and friendly.
