I am a doctor myself. I have NEVER EVER spent 2.20 hours with a patient. Dr Laudon has just done that. He showed genuine interest in my condition. He went way beyond my medical diagnosis. He went to the crux ofmy medical issue. He was extremely knowledgeable, pleasant, and funny at times with excellent bedside manners. I was so lucky to have met and known him. If there were two of him in this world, the world would certainly become a better place.

My first two visits, Dr. Laudon and his team did my annual physical, which consisted of: EKG, echocardiogram, blood/urine lab work, sonogram, chest x-ray, etc. Dr. Laudon is very professional, listens, and provides a personal diagnosticfor each of his patients. He is extremely thorough, very detailed, and absolutely does not treat his patients like an assembly line. He is by far the best doctor I have ever experienced in my life, and so glad I found him on Zoc Doc. Today was my 3rd visit to Dr. Laudon because I have been complaining about possible bronchitis and congested cough. Dr. Laudon and his team once again came through, and provided me with a very professional diagnostic of my condition. I am extremely pleased, and I recommend him to all my friends and colleagues. His medical team office is very accessible (I work across the street) by subway, and very friendly/professional. I would recommend any patient (new or old) to make sure you dedicate a portion of your day when you make an appointment. If you want high quality service, the wait is definitely worth it.

Great experience. First, the staff and doctors actually greet people here. Second, although there was an initial wait, when they called my name, they took care of me right away (I wasn't left sitting by myself in a room for along time.) Dr. Laudon is very interesting. He is definitely a primary care physician. I felt he was part osteopath and part MD at heart, meaning that although he did a thorough evaluation, he was focused on lifestyle and nutrition (ergo integrated approach.) When he communicates, he takes notes, gives you time and offers a treatment plan. Interestingly, the notes by hand, so you end up communicating with a human being, not a guy staring into a computer screen like you're some kind of video game. (Some younger patients will probably not have never experienced this before.) All in all, my guess is that if you're looking for a Doctor for long term management, he'll definitely be a top candidate in almost any situation. --I'd conclude by mentioning that my father ran a Pharmacy, so I was always used to getting VIP treatment from doctors as a "special patient" as a kid, so take my ***** review as one from a tough critic.

As much as I appreciated his thorough approach, the entire appointment process took way too long—three plus hours. I understand taking precautionary tests and getting everything set up, however, the staff and the office’s process are both terribly inefficient.

Streetside parking is terrible, but understandable for how busy the area is. The wait, including filling out forms, was longer than I expected. When I had signed in, I was the next person, but the wait was at least 20 minutes.After taking blood and doing some tests, he really sat and tried to gauge what exactly’s going on with me. After going through a UTI and a mysterious cyst before him, I’ve been having gas problems, and he really made me feel like he cares about my health.

I can tell I’ll be sticking around to Dr. Russell for a very VERY long time.. (don’t be weirded out Doc). The man knows his stuff! And apparently so do I which he made me feel really good about. He’s funnyand very easy to talk to, and I felt more than comfortable. Some things I need to work on amongst other things is my fatigue and he was able to give me appropriate alternative suggestions for my diet that will support having more energy and the memory fog I’ve experienced all my life. He made me feel trusting in a doctor than I have ever in my life because he said EVEN if progress does not develop with these basic steps recommended, he has a game plan of more things that has proven to help and will do it all to help me . He’s optimistic and confident and very knowledgeable! he’s not giving me a run down of unnecessary medications that my body may never need, he’s giving me a healthy diet to start and continuous support in my journey and I appreciate that. Thank you Dr. Russell!! I will be seeing you again soon. P.s: wait time can be about an hour or so BUT he’s very attentive to every ones personal needs and that’s important.. great health comes with time and consistency!!

I would never go back, the office itself when u walk in is kind of raggedy with concrete floor exposed. Even the way they took my id and insurance information was outdated. They made copies and cut things out and tapedthem on folders. My appointment was for 2:15 bc i had abdominal pains. I didnt get seen until almost 4pm. When I finally was seen, it wasnt even by the doctor granted, this PA was an absolute sweetheart she was gentle, and so nice. She came to do an ekg although i was confused as to why i was being given an ekg as i came in for abdominal pain. Finally i was seen by the doctor. He spent more time teaching me how to cook than anything else, he stood very close to me which was uncomfortable. He wanted me to come back to the office with printed out copies of a ultrasound i did a few months ago instead of me emailing it to him or having the practice send it over. And when I mentioned my extremely long wait time bc he had mentioned he was expecting to keep me in there till they closed at 6:30, his response was, im not one of those in and out doctors...etc. when i make a doctor appointment for a certain time, I expect to be seen within a reasonable amount of time. No one has time to be sitting in a doctors office for more than 3 hours.

Finally , I found a Doctor that listens , took time to examine you and explains what could be going on and how to go about it. Dr. Laudon is very professional, has exemplary bedside manner, expert on his craft andcompassionate practitioner . He explains well what could be the reason of my current complaint and how to go about it. He even gave me a goal for my overall health and well being ... ( reach my ideal weight in 1 year or two! ??) The waiting time is good considering I am a new patient . The staff are equally amazing... Thank you Dr. Laudon ! God bless you!

Going to see this doctor is an ALL DAY ordeal - I spent 5 hours in this office on an empty stomach for my annual physical exam. Beyond this, the waiting area is filthy and overcrowded, many of the staff aredismissive, and the entire facility is really not hygienic or professional. For example, while I was getting an EKG, an individual walked right into my examination room where I was half dressed (and this happened TWICE!) To add fuel to fire, the robe that they gave me to put on after I undressed was a reusable cloth robe, not a fresh paper robe, which was only one of the many examples of questionable sanitary conditions in this office. Despite all this, the doctor himself is well intentioned and intelligent. He does listen to his patients and tries to treat the root cause of an issue, instead of medicating the symptoms of an issue. He very comprehensive and is well educated on the role that one’s diet plays in illness and health. However, the cost of the rest of the experience is so high that it’s ultimately not worth it for me, and I am unlikely to return.

First I'm a former Healthcare professional who admits to being less than enthusiastic when it comes to seeing physicians. That being said, I was extremely pleased to have been consulted by Dr. Laudon. He thoroughly evaluated all of my complaints.I spent three hours in the office but completed ecg, blood testing, x-rays as well as sonogram. Dr. Laudon is an exceptional physician. I was in need of a primary care physician and I couldn't have made a better choice.

He's a really nice guy and all but we talked a lot about his grocery habits more than what I came in for. I know it was because he suggested a different diet but I came for pain in my wristand ended up getting blood drawn and stuff for a normal consult. Like I said he's nice but I just wish I would've known he couldn't do anything about my problem before my appointment.

The dr was very thorough. He seemed very interested and concerned with all of my problems and worries. He didn’t blow any of my symptoms off and wants to look into every concern i have. Very thorough and took his timeeven though i was late for my appointment he gave me his full attention and complete check up without rushing. The wait time was a little long but i see why once i was in the office he takes his time and i understood why there was a long wait. After my apppointment the receptionist or helper (not sure of his position) helped me make all of my follow up appointments and made sure i had all of the referrals i needed. All of the staff was nice and professional

We're working on a wellness plan and I will be returning to work with the doctor on maintaining and maximizing my health.

This was my first time with Dr Laudon. Dr Laudon is a professional, thorough doctor who is very knowledgeable and knows his craft well. He takes his time to explain how the body works in great detail. He’s concerned about hispatients entire well being. What I really like about Dr Laudon is that he is not only concerned about putting a “bandaid”on an ailment, he tries to get to the root of the problem. I did not feel rushed. He took his time to learn about my history and my health concerns. He treats you as an individual not just another number. I will definitely return and I no longer have to shop around.
