It was a thorough visit
Visit was very good. His professionalism is great.
The office workers were pleasant. Dr. Scrimmager is accurate and very helpful and not judgmental as some doctors can be.
Very thorough doctor. I've gone to him for years. My parents see him as well. However, be prepared to wait at least a half an hour...
The office was not very nice, and Dr. Schrimmager was very quiet and inpersonable. The visit was efficient and I got what I needed, but will be looking for a different GP.
Dr. Scrimmager has been my Internist for a number of years, and his service has always been top- notched. What I appreciate most is his attention to preventive care.
My time spent with the doctor was excellent. He looked into all aspects of my health, asked questions about new feelings and gave insight to my problem and suggestions for better self-cre.
It was great. Extremely professional
Amazing patient doctor
Great customer service by the receptionist. Overall, very professional.
As usual the doc was thorough.
Very disappointing experience He apparently lost my blood test, never call me back or give me any update and still waiting for the results after one month and half by calling his office twice a day. Absolutely unacceptable
Very go visit, we reviewed my most recent test results. Also, he spoke with me about the need to follow-up with prevention techniques. This is what i like about our visits he encourages me to stay vigilant.
Dr. Scrimmager is always on his game. We have cultivated a great doctor patient relationship that leaves me feeling very comfortable. I couldn't ask for a better primary care physician!
Dr. Scrimmager was very pleasant and professional. The wait time was reasonable. He discussed his concerns and explained the importance of keeping appointments and good health.
Excellent doctor and a pleasant person.
My appointment was good as usual. What I like about Dr, Scrimmager is that when I describe a symptom or problem; he shares with me the need to treat it and to follow up. I need that kind of encouragement as I tend to procrastinate.
The appointment was early in the morning. The doctor was on time. Everything went well...
I went to get a check-up and I think he forgot to do the actual check-up. Told him about my sinuses, he had no advice. He kept checking his phone the whole time. He mentioned that I had an enlarged throat (whatever that means) and asked me if I stopped breathing while I was sleep (and I'm like not that I'm aware - I can't really monitor myself while Im sleep!). I had to remind him to take my weight and height. Then he brought in a little cheap scale. He didn't do anything that I remember getting done the last time I had a physical except check my blood pressure! Not to mention the elevators weren't working so I had to walk up 6 flights of stairs only to find out that he was actually in the other wing of the building so I had to go back down 6 flights. Furthermore he took blood samples from me and stated he would call me in a week but I have yet to hear from him.
Relatively short wait, courteous and professional bedside manner. Answered all my questions and has reassuring tone.
Doctor Scrimmager is a very diligent doctor. He keeps me informed on my health issues.
He always treats me with the utmost respect and custom tailors his treatment to my specific case. I couldn't be more pleased to have found Dr. Scrimmager!
As always it's a pleasure when it comes to my visit with doctor Leon Scrimmager. Doctor Scrimmager is a caring, thoughtful, and a very thorough doctor when it comes to his patient's. He's very diligent in explaining the health issues of his patient's, and what they need to do to correct their health issues. I am very proud to have a great doctor like him. keep up the great work doctor scrimmager.
As always he keeps me informed and his recommendations towards my health has always been on point. I count on him to keep me healthy and I value his word.
Very gpos visit.
the office wasn't crowded so, I was able to enter a room less than five minutes of arrival. however, it took a while before I actually met with the doctor. over thirty minutes passed my appointment and I'm not sure if that's due to the doctor being on break or still with another patient.
Very Pleasant with my visit. Just not to happy with his Nurse.
very informative, and helpful.
Dr. Scrimmager asked how I was feeling and listened. He made a recommendation and emailed my local drug store with a prescription and made it quite easy for me.
Never responded to my phone calls about blood work or follow up even after using the portal and leaving multiple messages with his secretary. I eventually just stopped trying.
I was late I admitted this 10 min late. The Dr had a young lady that was new sitting in for his receptionist that was out for lunch. Since she did not know how to access zocdoc I was asked to wait. Which I did for a while until he came out and she told him I was waiting and he said well he has to wait until 3 pm. This was after I waited 20 min already. He did not look at me at all. The office needs to be more organized and professional
Dr Scrimmmger is very helpful always give detailed responses to any question I ask. Looked him up on Zoc Doc. He has been my primary Dr for over a year.
Very Calm. Very direct and speaks well.
I had a complete physical and he referred me to other medical personnel. He also accepted my insurance.
Very good visit. The Doctor listened to my concerns, and made recommendations.
I am very pleased with Dr. Scrimmager. I find him to be very thorough and professional.

Very knowledgeable, explains options well,
He's very attentive and he listens,he's been my Dr for along time and I would recommend him to anyone.
It went well. Dr. Scrimmager helped me work out a medication schedule that will give the maximum relieve of my condition.
He is a consumate professional. His office / staff was pleasant and efficient.
The address should list the office number. It took a while to find the exact floor.
Longer than expected wait time was due to the office technician not coming into work that day. MD himself drew bloods and processed lab samples.
Dr. Scrimmager has been my doctor for the pst 15 years. I have referred at least 15 other friends and family to him. I trust in the care that I receive from Dr. Scrimmager.
My follow up visit for the first of the year was great as always. Dr. Leon Srimmager is a wonderful doctor. I would recommend him to anyone whos's looking for a wonderful doctor.
Friendly, professional, caring atmosphere. It's like talking to a close relative ( who administers tests).
I was very dismayed when I arrived a half hour early for my appointment, only to be greeted by two staff members leaving the office. As I attempted to enter the office the two young ladies turned me away explaining that they were going to lunch so I would have to come back at 2pm when they would return. That I believe was very unprofessional. Two staff should not be go to lunch together leaving an office unmanned especially while the office is expecting patients. I did not like having to go back out into the cold to "kill time" until 2pm. Further once I arrived the doctor did not get in until 3pm. My overall impression was that the environment was very insensitive and sent the message that the patient's own time was not very valuable.
He;s been my Doctor for a long time, he's always through and he educates me and connects the dots if I am having certain symptoms.
I found my visit with Dr. Scrimmager to be very efficient, through and informative.
I had a good visit with Dr.Scrimmager. I found him to be very thorough with questions and answers.
He is the nomba 1. A
Very professional and attentive
My visits with Dr. Scrimmager are always thorough and informative.
Dr. Scrimmager is a kind and gentle doctor. Most doctors I've seen spend 5 min with me and get me out as soon as possible. Dr. S takes him time. He carefully listens to your concerns and provides you with various options. He isn't there just for the money. He truly cares about his patients. Dr. S isn't on my insurance panel so I have to pay him out of pocket. One day I came in without a penny to my name. Not only did Dr. Scrimmager let me pay him on my next visit but when my next visit came he didn't charge me for my previous visit. No doctor had ever done that for me. Dr. S is mild mannered. He speaks softly and quietly. Isn't very good at eye contact. He almost seems a little awkward socially. But as far as his bed manner, his knowledge of his craft so to speak, his patience etc he is truly the best. And I highly recommend him to anyone seeking medical help. I hope this review helps.
The office is kinda "eh" but its clean the staff is nice and so is Leon. I was placesed with my viset and he was super through with my examination
Dr. Scrimmager is very attebtive and always has the right diagnosis. His years of experience and his bedside manner assures me that I am being taken care of. Highly recommend him
My visit with Doctor Scrimmager went well. He was very explanatory, caring, and professional.
Ive been a patient of Dr. Scrimmager for 3 years and he is a very kind and patient doctor. He listens to you and explains clearly what you need to do going forward. I highly recommend him!
Dr. Scrimmager was a bit of a mess. Although he helped me get better, his office was old and run down, and he himself just seemed very untidy. I wouldn't see him again.
A great doctor very informative he will be my primary from now on
I liked the Doctor and he was very sweet and very good. However, it seemed like a Doctor friend of his came to visit in the middle of my appointment and he took 15 + minutes out of my appointment-visit time to chit chat with his Doctor friend, even after the nurse was done with my "vitals". This was discouraging.
Very positive! "A plus plus" in all areas of medical specialization! Dr. Scrimmager illustrates a warm, caring professional demeanor and attention to detail. Very knowledgeable and an effective communicator! He provides useful information / referrals / advise that pertains to his client's health. Highly recommend!
