I do not usually give reviews unless it’s something far beyond my tolerance. Waited more than 1 hour. The doctor is not patient at all and only spent 1 minute talking with me about my symptom and 5 minutes recording. He’sgot a horrible manner as well and does not care about the patients at all! Stay away.

waited over an hour for the initial apt and left before seeing the doctor after a 90 minute wait for the follow up. The Dr. himself was fine but this practice has no respect for its patients time.

Even though it was my first time and I had to fill out the usual paperwork, I felt well attended and the personal is great. Dr. Berkowitz is professional and he gave me confidence that everything will be right. I have a follow-up appointment in a few weeks.

They should separate the patients by cases the ones that come from Worker compensation, Car Accidents, of the private insurance ones. Almost two hours to see the doctor, and just 20 minutes of evaluation.

Everything is dirty, I waited for 4 hours. They had 40 people in the waiting room with bad air conditioning so it gets hot and smelly. You just see the personal gossiping and the doctor walking around. The X ray machinehas to be hit for it to work. The receptionist blames the main office for programming too many appointments and said that is always like that. The worst doctor I have ever seen.

The doctor and nurses and staff were wonderful. However, the wait time was crazy. Bring a snack.

First thing Dr. said when he walked in was I notice you have 3 areas of concern so pick one as I will not treat you nor am I willing to treat you for all 3. That sums up my review
