The hospital looked like something out of a horror movie. The waiting room was even worse. The rude woman at the front desk had the same answer to every question that I asked: "I don't know" (but picture it being said in a nasty tone of voice). My appointment was at 4pm and I didn't get seen until 5:15pm. Why do they even take appointments? They should just say "come in and put your name at the bottom of a long list of people and wait in a dirty sweaty waiting room and maybe you'll get seen". The doctor: He did have a very nice demeanor, but I was disappointed with the treatment I received. He looked inside my ear and said it looked "perfect" after I explained to him that I've had on and off infections and swelling for months. After I insisted that there was definitely something wrong with my ear, he told me to take decongestants. I'm not a doctor, but I had a feeling that they might interfere with another medication I was taking (this medication was clearly listed on the chart I filled out). Low and behold, I found out through the internet and through other doctors, that decongestants do in fact interfere with my medication. It's a good thing I did my own research and asked for a second opinion or I may have been at risk for a heart attack or seizure. Thanks, doc.

Dr. Kushnick was helpful and has good bedside manner, but I was left to wait more than two hours because they were backlogged from having had an emergency earlier in the day. No one at front desk communicated that with me and I had to keep asking when my turn would be, without receiving an answer.

Disappointed ZocDoc information was not sent to doctor. Had to fill out paper work. They were not aware of my appointment which is why my wait time was over an hour.

Dr. Kushnick had a great bed side manner which a lot of physicians lack today. More importantly, I was seen quickly.

Dr. Kushnick was great - nice bedside manner, cordial, and I felt confident in his care. My issue was minor (clogged ear and ear infection) so there wasn't much to it - he cleaned out the ear and gave me an antibiotic - but it was all in all a pleasant experience and I would recommend him. I saw lots of complaints about office wait time, so I took my laptop and worked on the free wifi while I waited...I was about 15 minutes early for my appointment and was seen approximately 40 minutes after I arrived. Not great, but not awful. Once I saw him I was in and out in 10 minutes.

I've had sinus issues throughout my life and this was my first time seeing an ENT outside the physician group I grew up as a patient in. Dr. Kuchnick was easy to talk to, sure to review my medical history in detail, and able to diagnose my problem through a thorough exam. I felt comfortable in his care, and trust his expertise. Additionally, the hearing exam technician was lovely also made my feel comfortable throughout. Though his office and the building at TBHC is older and a little worn down, the care was top notch. I would just remind future patients to withhold judgement while waiting, the staff clearly know what they're doing.

Waited for two hours to get a minute of his attention. Also he send me to other clinic, for which he didn't give me referral. He said I don't need it. But when I went to the clinic I actually need it. Than I called office. They were constantly putting me on hold. They promised to fax referral. I was waiting for two hours and didn't get anything. So I waisted day of my life waiting.

Horrible! Don't do this to yourself! They schedule way more people than they can take. The minimum wait time is 2 hours and when you ask the receptionist about the amount of time you need to wait, she just tells you to reschedule if you can't wait. The doctor is super nice and efficient but he is not worth the wait. I WILL NEVER RETURN again.

I thought Dr. Kushnick very capable and confident. He had good bedside manner and dealt with my issue quickly and to my satisfaction. However, I have been billed for a co-pay already paid in the office and that is detracting from my experience. If a resolution is reached quickly and to my satisfaction, then I will revise my review. However, medical bills are a major problem/issue related to quality of health care and this should not happen.

Dr Kushnick did his best to be quick and efficient, but the 2.5 hour wait is absurd and the waiting room is a chaotic madhouse, where the counter attendants frequently disappear after announcing much shorter wait times. Why not simply schedule less people and in turn see everyone on time?

sUe had too many patients & he didn't apologize that wait was so long. He seemed like doctor that was overworked by the hospital. He is only ENT doc in Bklyn Hospital. I would have liked to ask more questions but my visit was maybe maximum 15 min. I waited 3 hours all together but left office 4 hours later. He sprays nose with something that numbs your nose mouth etc. then ask u back inside office where he examines you. nder some other circumstance he may have different bedside manners. He was cordial.

I arrived fifteen minutes early for my appointment and waited two hours and thirty minutes before being seen. The receptionist was very nice, but the "nurse" who brings you to the back, takes height and weight (not sure what for at an ENT), and books follow-up appointments was incredibly rude. Next, Dr. Kushnick has interns with him who just stand and gawk at you during your appointment. He didn't even ask if it would be okay. Additionally, the facilities were disgusting and out of date. Upon seeing the doctor, he told me I was fine, even though I explained pretty sever symptoms. He wrote a prescription for ear drops, and sent me on my way. This office was totally unprofessional and unsanitary. I wouldn't suggest anyone go here. Especially for something as sensitive as ENT.

I heeded the feedback left by others and brought a book, expecting a long wait time. Actual wait time was 45 minutes past the appointment time and I was prepared, so I didn't really mind it much. Exam was thorough, he asked good questions, gave me the answers I needed about my condition. Would definitely see him again for any ear/nose/throat related issues.

Dr. Kushnick was pleasant and professional. I did not appreciate the wait. I had a 1:45 p.m. appointment and was not seen until 3:40 p.m., and no one on staff messaged anything about delays to those of us waiting in the reception area. I don't know if ZocDoc overbooked, or if someone called in absent, but regardless, it would be nice if the receptionists could be more honest and transparent about delays with patients. Again, Dr. Kushnick was excellent.
