I waited an hour for an appointment that I had previously booked in advance. There was to much going on at once with the front desk. Once you got inside to see the doctor, he was straight forward with questions justlike most doctors. Scheduled for an exam to make sure diagnosis correctly. Second visit was better. On time with appointment and less confusion.

The wait was horrible. I made a 3:00 pm appointment and I got there at 2:45 pm I didn't see the doctor until after 4:00 pm. Horrible experience if I didn't have to go back for a follow up call I would never go.

i do not like giving unsatisfactory reviews,however when it comes to my health I feel that "going with your gut" is extremely important. I will be honest; I was not impressed at all. I came prepared with my notes from myrecent visits, medications, dates of my prior hospitalizations, and mentioned that I was looking for a doctor with his specialty and I just felt that he was extremely dismissive, trying to link my concern with sexual activity, not wanting to really hear any of my prior history other than the very basics, even talking over me when I was trying to give my answers. I understand that he is the only specialist on staff at that medical clinic, but I did not feel that I mattered one bit as a patient. Not to mention, the waiting room was packed with people, many of whom sounded as though they were literally dying of tuberculosis, and the whole clinic seemed very scattered and disorganized. I was told to fill out more paperwork even though i had already checked in and filled out paperwork though zocdoc's website- what was the point then?

I spent more time filling out forms than actually dealing with the doctor. I will find another doctor for a follow up. Overall, I really didn't like the place, from the receptionist to the two assistant doctors i had to deal with before entering to the doctor's office.
