Bad doctor! He seemed more confused than I was about my symptoms. Seems very inexperienced, stay away!

Dr. Kushner is great. He took the time to listen and explain. I’ll definitely go back to see him. The receptionist at the front desk is horrible though. She’s rude and has terrible bedside manner.

Dr. Kushner gave me an experience I have not encountered with other physicians recently. He was very kind and had this genuinely caring persona. I would definitely recommend him to others and I am glad to say he is now one of my doctors.

Dr Kushner is fantastic, but ZocDoc sucks because none of the information I entered was available to the office and I had to re-enter everything by hand on paper forms. What a waste of time.
