Not much of a private setting when speaking about yourself, it can be heard from the waiting area in front of office.

The receptionist staff was absolutely horrific. They were rude, not helpful and rushed me out the door 5 minutes before my appointment because the doctor decided to leave early this afternoon. They would not even do their job and look upmy insurance which says was accepted on this website. AVOID OFFICE AT ALL TIMES!

I was a little disappointed with service. I went in for an Annual physical, but was mislead as who would be my pcp. On this site it shows the picture wilLiam R kalafatic but my pcp will be his father williamH kalafatic, no doubt he probably only wants to see his speciality cardiology, shouldn't list yourself as a pcp as well. Doctor gave good advice on weight loss, which I wanted but no one took my weight or height in till I asked? Also doctor took my blood pressure and checked my breathing, but didn't check my ears, eyes or throat? I did my urine test, the bathroom smelled and was no soap to wash my hands. Nurse gave ppd shot, kept bleeding and now I have a bruise ( never happened to me before)

Doc was effecient in addressing my concerns and is very straight forward which I like...too early to say whether I would recommend him to others, but he seems fully focused on getting to the source of a problem to provide a solution. I'll see how it goes!

I called the doctor's office just to let him know that I would be 15 minutes late. Once I arrived, I was seen right away by the medical assistant who was very professional and made me feel comfortable on my firstvisit. Dr. Kalafatic examined me and asked all the right questions. Never was there a rush by either Dr. Kalafatic or his staff. I have scheduled a follow up appointment. 5 Stars all around.

I wouldn't go back. The wait time was entirely too long. The staff was not professional or helpful at all! The doctor was too dismissive and it was a complete waste of my time.
