I left before seeing the Dr. He walked in late. Then took his first client. The walls are thin and it was annoying to hear mumbles of the conversation. Disappointed for being my first time considering too see a psychologist.

Dr. Espaillat took over an hour to see me, although he was a good doctor once I actually was able to have a conversation with him. I'm giving him one star because of experiences since. First experience: - I'm 11 minutes late for an appointment due to traffic. He leaves the office early that day because he's tired of waiting. - My RESCHEDULED appointment is canceled THE DAY OF after I've rearranged my day and work schedule to make the appointment. I'm only returning because I need a prescription filled and then I'll be finding another psychiatrist. I have to believe not everyone is as unreliable as Dr. Espaillat.

Wait times for a brief five-minute follow up were a minimum of 30-minutes. My most recent scheduled appointment was for 10am on a Monday morning (the first appointment of the day). At 10:40am, I left the office as Dr. Espaillat still had not arrived. On another occasion, raining heavily outside, he sat in his car waiting for the rain to stop as his office was full of patients waiting for their appointments - another one hour wait for a simple follow-up. Needless to say, I will not be continuing visits with Dr. Espaillat.

Wait times can be long, as mentioned by many other reviewers. However, Dr. Espaillat is very warm and friendly. His medical background, affiliations, and credentials should speak for themselves as well. You will not find a more qualified practioner.

Never on time, has reschedule some appointment, and cancelled others. Even one time, he didnt show up. In terms of competence, maybe he's ok but it makes it difficult to rate positively his service when his patient time doesnt seems to be important or taken into consideration. I'm seriously thinking about seeking another doctor.

Dr. Espaillat was pleasant & professional. As a new patient, he made me feel comfortable while reviewing my medical history and the personal questions asked that aide in diagnosis and treatment. He seemed genuine and showed concern for me. I am glad I found a doctor that makes me feel they care about their patients and long term health.

Very scary visit. There was a formerly disgruntled employee who was able to barge in the waiting room and start screaming about money she was owed. Waited over two and a half hours to the point that I had to cancel my other appointment I had taken a day off to have. Was seen for 30 minutes, asked very leading questions about suicide and depression and given 3 prescriptions. I only went because I need some basic stress management tools to deal with my job and my husbands work stress.

He is professional and has a way of asking questions that is non-judgmental. On the particular day that I came, it happened to be very busy with a long wait, but the waiting room has enough chairs to accommodate everyone. The receptionist was also very professional and helpful. Besides the wait, I had a positive experience, and I would recommend Dr. Espaillat.

First of all, he was 2 hours late. All of his morning patients were there before he was. I was able to leave and get breakfast, and when I returned he was still not there. And after several appointments, he refused to work with me on my medication. He wanted to prescribe me what he wanted to prescribe me regardless of what I said. It gave me the impression that he's paid by this one drug company to hawk their product, that he has a stock of samples for. I did not feel like I had any say in my own treatment, it was up to this guy and the drug company fueling his pocket. It's ridiculous.

I have a problem waiting over an hour and half for my appointment time. That is what appointments are for. I even called before my appointment to make sure they were running on schedule and the receptionist told me yes we are on time you can come on now. The doctor was not even there yet and the waiting room was full. I had to wait an hour an half. I'm sorry but I am a busy person and don't have time for doctors that don't respect others time. I also feel that all he wanted to do was push meds on my son.
