Verified Patient Reviews
The doctor really just wanted to argue about politics during my appointment. No doctoring occurred. I would not recommend this guy.
Dr. awe man made me feel comfortable and was very helpful. I'm happy to go back to see him.
This doctors office is really rude to the patients. If you have a question about going straight to the ER or making another appointment with them they won't pass the message to him to call the patient back.all they will tell you is if you think you need to go to the ER go to the ER but they won't ask him for you even though you are a patient
- Had to wait for 1:20 so their scheduling needs some work. - Had to re-fill out all the paperwork I spent time filling out online in ZocDoc again when I arrived, so they are not integrated there. The lady at the front desk told me "Oh, you filled in forms online? Well our forms are different, so please sit down and fill these out." - I came in for a physical exam and travel consultation, I had not been to the doctor in over 4 years. We talked about travel meds (of which he was not that knowledgeable). Yet he did not do any type of physical examination. Nurses took my height, weight, pulse, blood pressure but that was it!! My guess is he was running late for his recurring patients and wanted to get on to them. Maybe in more focused specialties he could be better but as a primary care doctor I was unimpressed.
This doctor is a fast talker and quick witted. I see why not everyone will like him. He is obviously smart and very good at his job. One of the few doctors I trust.
Awesome guy...really friendly
The office is pretty neat and clean...the staff are okay..Dr.Webman is friendly and easy to approach...spent time enough to asked questions and concerns..I will highly recommend him to anyone who will need his care.
I was very satisfied with the doctor and staff especially since my appoint, made thru ZOCDOC, was not on their roster. I offered to reschedule but they were very welcoming. I saw Dr. Webman quickly and he was concerned and helpful.
HORRIBLE!!! the doctor was AWFUL!! not only after waiting AGES to see him, though I had an appointment after all, he finally came in & did NOT want to address my issue, let alone help me with it. he wanted to ramble on & on about other things that had nothing to do w/the price of tea in China! Seriously, this guy is kind of out there & on top of a looooooong appointment & getting ZERO help, their fees are highway robbery! It was a complete & utter waste of my day & I would never recommend him to anyone, ever!
He was very kind as I talked about my stomachache and how I thought it was stress. Dr.Webman was very kind as he questioned me and right away used his experience to suggest what steps I should take . I am very happy and it even helped with my hormonal acne!!! He really does care!
Took time to talk to me and explain things.VERY NICE!!!! Highly recommend!
As a new patient, I arrived half an hour early to fill out all the paperwork. I was told to sit and wait and so I did for nearly 15 minutes BEFORE I was given the forms required, which by the way, were completely standard boiler plate form with completely generic questions totally unrelated to his specialty. After filling those forms, another 15 minutes went by before I was taken to a room by the assistant to measure my weight and blood pressure, the latter of which took her 2 tries with an electronic machine. Apparently the wrap that goes in the arm was to hard for her to install properly. Later I was taken to another room and asked all the questions that I had already answered in the initial forms. Again! Not to be surprised I got very annoyed with the lack of professionalism and experience of the assistant. She then left and told me to wait that the doctor would be in "soon". I waited for about 20 more minutes before I started hearing the doctor right outside chatting the staff up for another 10 minutes before walking in the room. No apologies for his delay, no "sorry I had an emergency", nothing. At this point, I was about45 minutes past my appointment time and the dr. shows up with one of the buttons in his shirt missing which left me in full view of his belly button. Completely unacceptable. I took everything I had not to run out the door, which is what I should've done from the beginning when my gut told me so. His questions were as inane as the assistant's and his "filler talk" totally irritating. I mean, if you are an hour and a half late, sorry but I don't fill like talking to you about the political situation in cuba and who wrote what book. Oh! Forgot to mention that in the middle of the consult we were interrupted 4 times by the staff; twice for signatures and twice for him to take a call. I guess the have to "catch him when they can". Needless to say I won't be going there again. EVER! And you'd should stay away from his practice.
This appointment was average at best. The doctor (once I was seen) was somewhat accommodating, but I felt that his bedside manner was sub-par. On several occasions, I felt somewhat insulted by the Dr. I also thought it was strange that he was yelling at and counseling his front desk staff in front of a full waiting room. This should have been done in private or after closing. Although my exam accomplished what I needed, it was likely the least thorough exam I have ever had (which says a lot as former government employee).
The entire appointment felt like I was keeping from something, it was very rushed and he kept cutting me off after asking me questions.
