There was a problem with my original appointment time (I don’t know if it was a ZocDoc issue or what), but they squeezed me in earlier in the day. They’re quite efficient at moving you through the (very thorough!) pre-testing beforeyou see the doctor, but I did then have a decent wait in the exam room before she ultimately came in. Dr. Niki was warm, friendly, and very knowledgeable, though. I will definitely be back.

Excellent service by the team - you move fairly quickly through the various tests done before you seen Dr. Silverstein. There is a short wait before you see the Doctor, but not too bad. Dr.Silverstein is excellent in explaining test results,addressing any questions you have, and keeping you well informed on what issues there are or what the test results mean. A great team and very well coordinated.

Great! However, the 11:30 AM apt. I booked online Monday, and that was confirmed THREE times before my Wednesday apt was evidently NOT actually booked for 11:30AM. When I arrived (20 min early) the front desk informed me my apt. was at noon, not 11:30AM.

I had filed the paperwork on line. When I got to the office they had only printed half and I had to do the work again. Very annoying, watching people come in the door and seen ahead of me. The computersystem should be fixed or clients should just fill out the paperwork in the office.
