Dr. Paul Kubiak is far by the worse physician I have ever seen. No bedside manners. Did not examine me. I had to ask if he checked my X-ray. I would not recommend anyone to him!!!

Dr. Paul, works in a busy area, but I did not feel as if my appointment was rushed, to ‘treat the masses.’ He listened to everything I had to say and gave a swift diagnosis.

I went in there expecting the worst, most doctors see that I'm a diabetic and blow me off. this doctor however actually took the time to listen to me and make sure that I felt like I wasn't crazy. and on the plus side he was funny.

I think I was overly hopeful for a more comprehensive initial exam. Very quick intro w dr. Told to wait for ins auth for mri and to start PT ASAP. Feels weird to be told to start PT before figuring out what the exact prob is first....

Dr. Kubiak was ok, when he finally saw me. He explains everything well and I will see him when he gets new staff. I've gone for about 2 years, staff have always been hit or miss on their mood and customerexperience. But when I was in an accident and needed to see someone, they refused to even talk to be until i had my no fault PPW. I explained this had just happened the day prior, I was in pain and needed to see someone, they refused to even speak to me on the phone until i had a police report, claim number, adjuster, all this that ended up taking 8 days to get. This MD is good but this practice and staff arent worth it.

I called the office to confirm my appointment for 3:15 pm. When I got there, the doctor hasn't arrived, and there were already 10+ patients waiting in the room. They take walk-ins, and they don't honor appointment times. Do not gothere unless you plan to wait in line on a first-come first-serve basis.

Terrible, I had a 2:30 appt he arrived in the office 4:45.When he saw me, it was the results of a spinal MRI. He said go to physical therapy. Never explained the results of the MRI. I asked for pain medshe said no. Never asked how I was feeling or of I had any questions. Like having a robot Dr. The total exam room time was maybe 3 minutes. Saw several patients outside all complained that he gave them about 2 minutes of time and ignored their questions. If you can find a worse Dr. with worse bedside manners he must be you will have to travel far and wide. This is the 2nd time I saw him where she came to the office more than hour after his 1st scheduled appt. This was on 5/22/18 Neil S.

The front staff were very professional and courteous. Dr. Kubiak had a horrible bedside manner, rushed our appointment and didn’t really allow me to express my concerns. He also didn’t answer any of my questions and rushed me out of theoffice. I wouldnt recommend this doctor to my worst enemy.

He was rude and unwilling to explain or listen. He would offer no other options and basically said I can leave if I didn't like his treatment offer. I felt disregarded and dismissed. I will NEVER recommend this doctor to anyone. He's cold, mechanical and very rude.

I feel his answers were very short, He wasn't very helpful. His Bedside Manner & Empathy was awful. I would not recommend this Dr for any services. He overbooks, where I feel he doesn't have enough time to accommodate all hispatients. He in & out of each room quickly and his waiting area is full to its capacity. They make appointments, however, its first come first served. You can have a 9am appointment, sign the list first, you'll be able to get seen before, someone who has an earlier appt, which is dumb.. The reception area the ladies are rude also..Terrible experience..

THIS DOCTOR IS THE WORST DOCTOR WE HAVE EVER DEALT WITH. We set up a 4:15 appointment via Zocdoc, got there on time, but there was a large line of people there so it took almost a half hour to finallyget the forms to fill out. We filled them out quickly, immediately got to the room to see the doctor, and were very hopeful - it was about 4:48 by the time we got in the room. The doctor comes in, and we start to explain the issue but he literally dismissed everything as just being normal issues, nothing to worry about, but come back in a week to check in. We try to ask about things we're worried might be related, and he just cuts us off and says "no, no, you're here for the one thing, we can deal with that next week". Literally, 5 minutes total before we're shoved out the door - we got to our car at 4:53. WORST EXPERIENCE. DO NOT GO HERE.

The office staff is extremely unprofessional and unhelpful. I was seen in the ER on a Monday and waited for an appointment on a Friday. I could barely walk and upon arrival was told I needed a referral. I called theER doctor and was told the ER visit should have been enough for me to be seen, but they still refused to see me because they were not affiliated with the hospital I went to. The insurance company too said that had they put in effort and called them, I could have been seen and given the medical care I so desperately needed. There was no reason for such incompetence and laziness on the part of the office staff. They did not even try to help when the mistake was theirs to begin with--they should have told me I needed a referral in the first place.

Absolutely the worse experience ever!! After being told that it was okay to ask questions regarding my injury, I was subjected to ridicule and hostility when I pushed for explanations. Not only did he comment about my weight, he became increasinglymore frustrated as I asked clarifying questions to the point in which he asked me to stop asking questions. It was like having Trump as a doctor. ABSOLUTELY THE WORSE MEDICAL EXPERIENCE EVER!!! I guess it's ok for him treat minorities any way he wants because he still gets paid. Let's not even get started on the horrible reception staff that are no help at all!!
