Total quack. I had to remind her to take my weight during a physical. She had to ask me how to spell my medicine. Two hours in the waiting room. Worst medical experience ever.

Clearly stated my reason for the appointment when I booked it through Zocdoc and her office confirmed the appointment. I waited for over an hour to be seen. She is listed as a primary care practitioner but was not able tohelp me at all and sent me off with a bandaid- seriously.

Wait is especially long for new patients, even with an appointment and having completed all forms online ahead of time. Staff was super friendly, but Dr. Briones rushed through my appointment and left me questioning my choice to come see her.

The doctor herself was great, however her office staff were very unorganized and unprofessional. Waited nearly an hour and a half for my scheduled appointment, and only was rushed in once I informed the staff I had to leave. The physicalitself by the doctor wasn't bad, though when her staff tried to draw my blood they poked me 4 times before calling the doctor in, and she was unsuccessful as well. Very uncomfortable.

I did not like the wait but at least the Doctor spent more time with me that I waited. That is what is truly important. If I had waited 30 min and the Doc only spent 15 min with me Iwould be upset but she took her time with me, she talked to me like a real person and I felt confident in her ability to help me. I was impressed by her and I felt comfortable..

I felt that my wait was a bit long, about 45 min or so, but felt the nurse was very sweet and had a good bedside mannner. Dr. Briones was very friendly and professional. She gave me good advise as tohow to lose weight and insisted that I get a colonoscopy.

I was happy to have found a doctor within my network and within the area I was looking for. I was not pleased with the approach of her receptionist or how they handled my requests. They had scared me by sayingthey didn't recognize my insurance (BCBSM) and I might have to pay it all out of pocket. My entire experience felt extremely uncomfortable, all the way down to the exam room and needles I was poked with. All-in-all, everything ended up being ok, but I will never return.

Dr. Briones is great, and I do recommend her, however, the wait time is ridiculous--be prepared to wait at a minimum, one hour, most times longer.

She did not explain any testing she was ordering. I came in for a problem and she claimed she did a physical. She/her staff did not take my temp or pulse - only weight and BP. She did not look inmy eyes, ears, or throat. She did not check my relfexes. That is not a physcial. Poor patient care.

I was looking for a doctor that was not part of a large corporation with hundreds of doctors and thousands of patients, long waits and inefficient billing systems. A few quick minutes with the doctor and a diagnosis of a diseasethat will require continuous visits and continuous billing... Dr. Briones is exactly the opposite. A personalized visit with a doctor that is listening to you and interested in your health. I would definitely recommend her.

Dr Briones was very pleasant and a nice to deal with. However her specialty lies in weight loss (she runs a weight loss clinic) and not in internal medicine. Although, to be fair, she is still licensed to practice internal medicineand technically gave me what I needed. It just wasn't a good fit for my needs and I think her clinic could have been advertised better.

Taken in fairly quickly for vitals, seen shortly afterward. Dr. Briones is extremely pleasant, listened to my concerns, and made suggestions for tests and specialists my previous doctor never offered. There was a longer wait at the follow-up,but, having no clear answers from bloodwork (she ordered more blood tests than my previous doctor was ever willing to order), Dr. Briones wrote referrals to those specialists and ordered more tests, rather than dismissing me.

I went to see Dr. Briones because i desperately needed a primary care physician. I was formerly a patient at Mt. Kisco Med Grp and unhappy with the factory-like feeling of being a patient of theirs. I was looking for aphysician close by and who would offer a more personalized experience. I found it that with Dr. Briones! Her office is a nice place to visit. Great parking and centralized location in Mt. Kisco. Her staff is warm and at the same time professional. Dr. Briones herself was friendly and good at making me aware of the important medical musts for a woman my age (34). Also great was Dr. Briones herself called me to reschedule my wknd appt due to an expected snowstorm.She has late weeknight appointments so I was able to be seen the same day. Looking forward to my follow-up visit.
