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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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
