Dr. Kushnick took his time , was very knowledgable and explained everything thoroughly. His staff were excellent as well. The only minor complaints were that the elevator was slow, and the TV in the waiting room was loudly blaring celebrity gossip.

I thought he was friendly professional and straight to the point. I told him about the pain in my ear. He cleaned it out and checked inside my nose with a camera. He gave me a prescription and I'm very hopeful that I will get better.

Office staff sent a minor bill to the wrong address repeatedly (unbeknownst to me), resulting in its being sent to collections. Very frustrating. There's no excuse for a poorly run office.

The lady at the front desk gave me the wrong fax number thus I waited over an hour to be seen to only be told they never received the document being faxed. That whole time the fax number was wrong atthe lady nonchalantly said “oh yea it is missing a number” after waiting a whole hour. She is not equipped clearly to deal with such matters. She is probably going to be the one who reads this review and not post it!

Doctor Kushnick saw me promptly, I just wish he had listen to my complaints the less than week prior regarding my throat and ear pain, which we know now was the beginning of a very painful tonsillitis infection and I could have been saved another trip to the doctor.

Friendly doctor. Simple diagnosis that came with a pre-prepared recommended treatment info sheet. Front desk, check-in, and wait time was fine. However, waiting for the elevators to reach the office will put you behind schedule. Show up earlyin that case to keep your original appointment time and snag your spot in line.

The doctor was friendly (although I felt a little weird that he rubbed my back) and helpful. However, I had a fiasco in getting my prescription. The assistant said she’d call it in but didn’t: this was before a holiday weekend.I had to go back to the office from pharmacy and knock on the door because the office was closed. I had tried calling—no answer and no options to reach doctor in the message. A cleaner for the building had told me no one was in the office. I was going to leave when another patient arrived with the same problem. She was more persistent in banging in the door, and lo and behold, out comes a medical student! The doctor apologized for his assistant and called in the prescription. Overall, I liked him well enough to return but would not because of this fiasco.

My husband found something in his throat and was beside himself thinking the worst. Made an appointment for him with Dr. Kushnick as he was available on the same day. My husband came out so relived and full of praise fordoctor’s support, professionalism and patience. There was just a few minutes of wait time. Dr. Kushnick is really a wonderful doctor.

Super nice and accommodating office staff, and I was seen quickly even though my appointment was at the end of the work day. The doctor listened carefully to my concerns and responded thoughtfully, if a bit dismissively, but ultimately did make a solid follow up plan for ongoing care.

Dr. Kushnik was very professional yet made me feel comfortable. He thoroughly read my intake form and answered all of my questions. Wait time was pretty efficient once forms were completed. The Brooklyn Hospital itself has seen better days(only one elevator working in a 19-floor building) but aside from that my visit was excellent.
