Dr. Lerner was professional, efficient and knowledgeable. But, If they could be a little more on time and courteous of ourtime and the office was in a more convenient place, everyone would feel a little better about their appointments.

Dr. Lerner was forthright and direct. He captured all the nuances of my case with many well thought out questions. Aftera back-and-forth conversation, he arrived at diagnosis and treatment. I got referrals and follow-up appointments for treatment. Great visit.

Appointment was rescheduled because the PCP's office failed to submit the referral and was unreachable. Dr. Lerner's staff handled it very professionally and tried again. Ultimately, the appointment was rescheduled, but this was necessary because of the problem with the PCP office and was not their fault. I have been there before and would recommend this doctor.

The wait time was more than unacceptable. I was able to watch a 90 minute movie and still had not been seen. This would be acceptable if once I saw the doctor that the visit was lengthy, informative and one that addressed the problem on this visit. I have to come back in two weeks. Let's hope the wait isn't the same.

The doctor might be amazing but it is not ok to wait over 2,5 hours with a huge sign in the waiting room 'absolutely no drinking or eating'. If you don't have spots don't force it, delete the availability from zocdoc!! It's not that difficult, I wasted most of my day on that stupid waiting time!

Visit went well. Took time to listen without rushing. Also took time to explain other possibilities, in the event other avenues would be necessary for treatment.

I will definitely come back to see Dr. Lerner. I could tell from my first visit to him, that he is a true expert in his field. Anna and Kally ( medical staff ) were very attentive and helpful.

Dr. Lerner is efficient and knowledgable, but the wait time was awful. Was not seen until 12:15 when I had an 11:00 appt, and that was only because the nurse bumped me up.

Making the appt.was easy via ZocDoc.. The wait was forever. I came in on time at 1pm.. I was called into the office at 230 pm. Waited for like 13 minutes. Basically my actual patient to doctor interaction less than 15 minutes. Should have been waiting for only maximum 45 minutes less than an hour but this was uncalled for. Too long of a wait. Kinda weary going back for my follow up:-(

The doctor ordered a test, but never followed up with me after I had the test done. He also said he would have his office call me to schedule further tests, but his office never called. He was nice, though, and he did prescribe me a medication for my headaches. The lack of follow-up, however, was disappointing.
