After my physical I asked to talk to him over the phone if the results were all fine. He made mecome in person, just so they could charge me a co pay, as the results were all fine and I was out of there in 3 minutes... Do not recommend.

I really like the doctor and his quick professionalism. However, he was quick to pass on a diagnosis on my mentalhealth which I find problematic of the greater healthcare community and their simplistic views towards understanding (and not necessarily) treating mental health, given he does not seem certified in that field. Having talked with neuro-scientists researching the brain, there's much that is unknown and the doctor today professed he knew what my condition was. I don't feel comfortable with that kind of blind arrogance and encourage him to listen to patients more, and stay on top of ongoing research if he were to opine on anything outside his specialty.

Dr. Saclolo gave me a thorough exam and was very personable. I was disappointed that I had to wait over an hour to see him, I came on time and didn't get seen for an hour and ten mins.

I've seen Dr. Saclolo previously but traveling into Manhattan was hard with my schedule. I am glad to be able to see him again. He was a lot more attentive and actually able to know ongoing illnesses that other Dr's just pass off as normal.

I was in for an annual checkup. The wait time was extremely long, more than one hour - and after asking twice I was brought to Dr Saclolo, who appeared to not have had any patient for a while and was surprised by my wait time. Dr Saclolo was completely disinterested, checking off boxes. His assistant then came in and talked about me as if I was not in the room - like “does she have ....”. It was my worst experience in a doctor’s office. Will not return.
