Awful. The doctor is very condescending to patients and spends very little time with the patient.

First visit. Dr. Fuchs is very kind, gentle and thorough and goes out of his way to ask questions and offer insights. He seems to know a lot - as one would hope! But he's also quite intuitive in his questionsand observations. All of the staff were kind and very professional as well. Nothing they did seemed perfunctory.

Most of the women that work there are very good, but Dr. Fuchs is not. I think that it might be that he overbooks; that might be part of the problem. He's biting off more than he can chew. The waitingroom is packed as can be, and it's usually a very long wait. On top of that, he's a cardiologist AND a internist, and I didn't like that I saw him for both. He's being forgetful. He went well over a year without giving me a stress test. That's not a good sign for a cardiologist, especially for someone who had a massive heart attack and has a stent in his L.A.D. artery, where there had been more than 95 percent blockage. That is the case with me. He doesn't seem to take things like that, which are very very serious, particularly seriously. He is also very moody; one time, he's kind of nice; the next time, he's kind of sarcastic. I'm tired of his unpredictable mood swings. I've noticed that he's gone downhill during the time that he's been my cardiologist and internist, which has been about three years. At my first appointment, he seemed like a real nice guy with a great sense of humor, but the last few times, that doesn't seem to be the case. Also, just as previous patients or ex-patients have written, he hardly is in the room with you for more than a minute or so. This didn't used to be the case. He's become very arrogant, and I don't care for that type of personality. He simply has too many patients. As I said, most of the gals that work for him are nice, but I haven't found the doctor himself to be nice lately. This is why I'm discontinuing going to him. And the fact that, as a cardiologist, he hasn't given me a stress test in a year and a half is kind of shocking. No more; I've had enough of him.

As a cardiologist, he is on the money, as a PCP, not so much. He has never examined me once. I had to beg for an x-ray. He suggests many tests that he wants to do, and never does them. It's very frustrating.

Great experience with this doctor. I was seen so quickly that I didn't even finish filling out my paperwork before my name was called. Everyone was very nice and informative. The doctor was great and made me feel at ease and in the right hands.

I sat at that medical office for over an hour, before someone even noticed me. The first thing I did was put my name on the list, but why was people coming after me, being called in before me? The suiteonly had two doctors, and one of them was out. It was cold in there, one of the receptionist isn't bedside mannered at all, it smelled bad. I was just annoyed. The doctor is good, but I would only see him again if he was in a different office, with a different atmosphere. I feel like I wasted my time.

The doctor initially gawked at my story of a previous vertigo attack and proceeded to give me a standard examination loosely tied together with an anti vertigo prescription. I saw the doctor for a total of 5 minutes with 99% of the work done by his nurses.
