Verified Patient Reviews
The nurses were very friendly and knowledgable. The doctor was professional but did not explain the medical terminalogy he was using. He also prescribed medication before even getting my blood or urine tests. How can you prescribe medication based off what the patient is describing and not confirming through results? Overall the visit was ok however i would not be returning to this clinic other then to follow up from todays appointment.
Professional and courteous, would highly recommend!
I have NEVER written a review of a product or service let alone a DR. This was literally my worst DR visit I ever had. My appointment was for 1045. I got there early in order to check in since I was a new patient of Dr. Raina. After seeing two separate nurses I was told to sit in a room. At around 1145 (an hour after my appt) I walked out and asked a nurse if it was going to be much longer because I had to go to work. She told me in was next and it wouldn't be long. Dr. Raina eventually came in. Not once did he apologize for having me wait. He asked why I was there and I told him I was depressed and having anxiety issues. He asked if I was suicidal or homicidal which I understand is protocol. I advised him I was neither and he sarcastically said " good because I am in the room with you". I was visibly having a rough time and this Dr thought that would be an appropriate thing to say. I told him I didn't appreciate that and I didn't think that was funny. He didn't even respond. He continued to be condescending and was reluctant to fill a prescription for a medication that I told him I had had positive results with. His bedside manner is deplorable.. No eye contact, extremely sarcastic, and he dismissed factual things I was saying to him on multiple occasions insinuating I was not telling the truth. I was hoping for a positive appointment due to having a rough time dealing with issues I stated above. When I left there I was even more anxious and had an overwhelming sense of uncertainty. Dr. Raina is an arrogant, cold man. Please go elsewhere. I am so dissapinted and shocked. He's supposed to be a professional? That's the way he treats someone confiding in him? Shame on you sir. I am sure many more negative reviews will follow. Hands down worst DR I have ever seen. Don't believe me? See for yourself
They were very thorough and did all the testing right then and there
By far the worst doctor visit I've had. I have never taken the time to write a review on anything before but I could not let this go. However, it took over 2 hrs for Dr Raina to come into the room to state what he thought I had wrong with me based on the hour and a half tests administered by the medical assistant before hand. Even with all of this "data" collected, he was not able to explain how he determined why he thought I had these issues. Or maybe he was just distracted from the phone call on his cell phone he received AND answered during the 5 minutes he was in in the room with me. Unprofessional and a complete waste of time.
This doctor has to be one of the rudest individuals I have ever met before, most certainly is not in the right profession.
The wait time was a little long, but the whole staff was really friendly and the office was nice. You could tell the time was long because the doctor really cared about each individual visit
Not sure if this is a real doctors office or some kind of urgent care place? I was super unhappy with my visit here. I came in for flu symptoms yet they were more interested in my mental health and if I drink alcohol.. I wasted about 2 hours of my time here to be told to just take motrin and drink water. Won't return.
I recently moved from India to here. Excellent Doctor. Very professional. Explains things very well. To the point. His humor, warmth has touched us. I strongly recommend this doctor. Nice office and very helpful staff.
Dr. Raina was very friendly and funny which made me feel more at ease since I haven't been to the doctors in 8 years. I highly recommend him and his assistants. He is truly the best physician in long island!! My whole family, my uncle, my aunt, my neices, my nephews, my grand parents both maternal and paternal come to see him and we are all truly blessed to have him.
I had a 10:00am appointment and showed up at 9:45am. It took the office thirty minutes just to find the paper work I was suppose to fill out and once I was finished I continued to wait while patients coming in after me were taken. I said something and was told after an hour of waiting I would continue to have to wait. It was a very disorganized and unprofessional office. I will absolutely not be going back.
Very thorough with no wait time in the waiting room or the medical room, great bedside manner and great staff.
Great doctor, having met with another member of the practice, they are a great team. Very thorough & doesn't like to push medication unless really necessary.
My visits are always a medical learning experience for me. Dr. Raina is communicates information to me thoroughly and comprehensively. His staff is cordial and well trained in dealing with his patients.
Would have better to stay in waiting area longer instead of sitting in an examining room and waiting over 30 minutes. Thats not fault of the doctor but staff does not need to fill every exam room and make them waiting rooms ...where 30 min becomes the norm after 30 min in front waiting room . It woukd be better to wait 45 min and 15 in exam room
Dr. Raina was very friendly and funny which made me feel more at ease since I haven't been to the doctors in 8 years. I highly recommend him and his assistants.
Dr. Raina was kind, smart, and efficient. He addressed all of my concerns and had great bedside manner. I would definitely go back.
Excellent! Dr. Raina is very knowledgeable and spent time explaining my conditions and treatment.His staff was polite and explained the tests that were ordered
very thorough & knowledgeable.
Well knowledgeable doctor but the wait time is simply ridiculous.
Dr. Raina is thorough and attempts to address any possible health issues I may have. He takes time to explain the tests he recommends and allows time for me to ask him any related questions. I appreciate that from a doctor!
Great doctor ! He listens and wants to ensure that he does his best to help you achieve good health.
I loved the office visit, and doctor himself. Nurses were friendly and fast, doctor was thorough.
Overall it was a good experience, I think I'm going to stick with him.
Thorough review of recent illness and follow up discussion . It was very informative and hopefully I will recover quickly .
High tec everyone was very nice
Excellent nurses ... Patient ... Even got me a cup of water when I was tired after a lung test . They are doing a great job . I hope it continues . As far as Dr Raina ... He is the best or as my wife always says " must be a keeper " so look for someone else .. I don't want his office too crowded !!!
Overall visit was great
Friendly staff , short wait, very thorough screening as a first time patient; and Dr. Raina spent time asking about my medical history and my reason for being there which he addressed pretty well. Saturday appts. Convenient for my schedule.
Was very late, had me swapped through different nurses, he was checking his phone while he was with me. Overall, a simple blood test took about 2 hours to complete. Needless to say your 4.5 star rating is questionable for this doctor
Perfect like previous appt
The doctor is very professional and knowledgeable although I didn't feel like he was listening to me and felt rushed
Excellent in all ways Always best to make early appointment before the crowds arrive . I have seen many doctors before but Dr Raina cares about his patient's health and takes time to discuss all .
since the office moved, there have been so many screw ups. I would never go back. they billed wrong insurance company more than once, ran the wrong blood test and always messed up the appointments. This doctor is also test happy. every-time I go its another test that is not needed.
Great doctor. Listened to all our problems and gave us the medicines for all.
Highly competent. Warm personality. Very professional. Everything I was looking for.
The doctor was thorough and pleasant.
Reception could have been friendlier and wait time was awful. Doctor was great.
Beautiful office with the nicest staff, brand new up to date equipment and a very knowledgable doctor, definitly recommend.
Better than most Dr's that overbook .
Excellent Visit He addressed all my questions
I'm very glad the doctor was willing to see me even though I was running late and was his last appointment. Diagnosis was quick and also straightforward. Prescription was quick and sent to pharmacy right away.
The visit itself was very thorough. The wait was over an hour - very frustrating!
VERY COURTEOUS AND UNDERSTANDING DOCTOR
The women who gave me the tests were really friendly and made the visit much better then other Dr. visits I have had. The Dr. actually talked to me and cared about my situation in life. I really feel like they are concerned about my health and what I have to endure.
Dr was excellent !!
I am thrilled with ZocDoc and with my choice of doctors. I will be using them as my primary care doctor going forward and have recommended that office to a friend looking to switch.
A 2 hour wait on a Monday afternoon is just ridiculous. Looking for a new doctor.
He was very friendly. Made me feel comfortable. He has a very nice MA
He has been my pcp for a long time and the entire team is the best in businness.
I liked the fact that he was thorough... All patients get an EKG and pulmonary test. I got the impression that he'd rather check the problem by doing a test before prescribing medication. That's great for person who doesn't like taking medication unnecessarily.
He's a real nice guy, but they never knew I was coming. They told me ZocDoc never emailed them. I showed them the confirmation email. I am not mad at them or ZocDoc. I know sometimes these things happen. But they still took me. Very nice staff.
Very nice guy.
