Absolutely Disgusting!!! His receptionist were nasty he was was 50x worst then them. He wouldn't let me explain why I was there he rushed me out of his office before properly hearing my issue. He kept saying I'll write you anote. While waiting to be checked out, his other patients heard me talking to the receptionist about his rushing my out, they all said he was nasty to them as well and said the Dr. Told them it's not their turn to speak and he doesn't want to hear from him. I mean they couldn't have been nastier

the office staff was olverwhelmed.For some odd reason the doctors office were in the basement with the only way down was a steep stairwell,scary as hell when your gait is off.To get to it you had to open a heavy glassdoor into a little breezeway that is so narrow two people cant pass at the same time,causing. the overcrowded lobby to literally step back to wait for yourself to pass .The one good thing was the very pleasant PA.The doctor himself poked in for two minutes,blowing off all questions and then informed me he Wasnt a pain doctor,there wasent one on the office but I needed physical therapy three times a week whick he had just upstairs and handed me a copy pf doctors names he thought did pain management but wasnt sure and didnt know if they took my insurance,I could call around.it felt like a scam and having to pass through the so called PT office with four old machines and twenty people waiting for their turn,I just walked out. The smell of feces from the filthy restroom filled the entire area..Did I meation he never laid hands on me.

The desk was a little unorganized when i got there with paperwork (filled out some forms I didn't need to), but they were very nice and helpful. After about 15 minutes I was taken back by a technician to have X-raysdone. I waited for Dr Hecht for about five minutes before he came in. He was very nice and patient. His examination and our conversation was brief but to the point. Great experience

The Dr. is great, professional and courteous. But just the wait time is over 2 hours. They have around 30 people come in at the same time. And then you have to wait to be called.

He wasn't able to help my situation but made sure that his equally nice office staff called another doctor who saw me right away about a mile away, who was able to help.

I chose to make an appointment with Dr. Hecht after reading other patients' feedback involving his experience, knowledge, and bedside manner. The office so efficient that even though I was there early because I knew I would be filling out paperworkas a new patient my appointment was completed within 10 minutes. I did not feel rushed and had a conversation with the doctor after reviewing my x-rays that made me feel comfortable addressing all my questions. The office got clearance from insurance company and set up an appointment with another office while they searched for the most immediate appointment that would be conveniently located. I wish every doctor's office and business was run this well. Though it was efficient on time, the entire office cared, including the doctor. He even monitored the status of my insurance approval of the tests for the other office and the appointment being made at the other office.
