Dana barged in to the room as i was changing into my "gown" to tell me i don't need to be there before me even explaining what my visit was for. It wasn't till i asked if i could at least tell her what was going on with me that she decided to have a look and not only that criticize me and belittle me. Dana was rude, and very unsettling. Now i am no doctor but i would think the idea isn't to scare your patients yet Dane felt the need to tell me i had a disease before even getting the results. I felt rushed, and judged and confused. I had a stressful week till i got my results (from another Doc that was great) and could finally ease my mind. All in all, i do not think i will come back to see Dana.

I have had more then one bad experience with Dr Saltzman and would highly recommend not going to her. The office is completely unprofessional and I had to wait over an hour because they had forgot about me. Dr Saltzman had made me get a physical otherwise she wouldn't prescribe me my travel medications. When she personally took blood from me she stabbed me multiple times in both arms, bruising me, I think it was after the 5th try she managed to get some blood. They then sent it to the wrong lab that my insurance does not cover and had a huge bill that I had to sort out with them. To sum it up, don't go there. I am so happy I switched to another doctor.

Nice & clean office and short waiting time but Ms Salzman was very rude, I felt very uncomfortable with her. Then she hurt me during my pap smear, I started bleeding & she didn't even tell me until I got up again and had blood running down my leg. She said that everything was fine and sent me home but I kept bleeding for another 6 hours. Very unprofessional and unacceptable.

It was my first visit, I did not had to wait long time. She listens and care about her patients, very friendly. Always asking questions if I have any other concerns. Besides the routine check-up she also ordered an EKG to see how my heart was doing, no other doctors ever done that with me. Through app I was able to get an appointment right away in few days, and when I call the clinic they sent me the application online. I think is great that way I did not had to wait too long filling out paperwork while waiting.

Came in for a pre-op. Very professional from reception onward. I got my prescriptions refilled, my EKG, and was completely done within 45minutes from arrival and this was my first visit. Sr. Saltzman recommended that I do my annual check up in a month because it is free with my insurance and I haven’t done one this year. The office is very clean and I had a great experience. No surprises with NY State of Health, HealthFirst insurance.

I've had such poor experiences with primary care physicians in the city, but I'm relieved to report that I've finally found one I'm excited to stick with! Dr Saltzman is so thorough and spent way more time with me than expected. Her staff is wonderful had no problem drawing my blood (usually doctors complain I have small veins). Highly recommend! She's one of the higher quality doctors on here listed under healthfirst.

I've been coming to Dr. Saltzman for 3 years now and have always had a great experience. I was referred here by a close friend, and I recommend all my friends to her now. Dr. Saltzman is a well-informed and very competent doctor. I come here with all my primary care as well as women's health concerns. Recently I began acupuncture for smoking cessation, and I was able to quit entirely. Dr. Saltzman's care has always been very thorough, and her attention to detail and personal investment in her patients' well-being is why I continue to come to her. Additionally they cover all the bases for what you want in a doctor's office.

I came to see her because I was sick/fatigued and had been for quite sometime. Once we figured out the cause on my second visit she spent 5 mins telling me how dreadfully sick I was and to get some vitamins. When I asked for a brand suggestion, or advice in choosing of the vitamins she shrugged and told me I’d have to figure that out. When I tried to get details on my health she chastised me for not listening and left the room with out any signal the visit was over. I had to go to the front desk to ask if we were done.

what a welcoming staff & environment! I was able to pre-register online before I arrived & pretty much saw the doctor as soon as I signed in. Dr. Saltzman was kind & attentive & was thorough in my exam. All in all a refreshing experience in a time when you usually have to wait long for an impersonal experience in many other doctors offices. Its was much more relaxing here.

Viles of blood from previous patients left on counter in my tiny checkup room, door left open during multiple visits. Doctor barely looks at you, if you even see her. Extremely rude front desk staff as well as physicians assistants. Will never go to this office or doctor again, but last visit the PA told me I was "lucky they were so accomodating to my prescription needs"? Still unclear as to what this means, but there is no justifying such inappropriate and unprofessional comments.

I stopped going to her long ago, but have never had a worse doctor experience in my life, and feel like people should be looped in before booking. Total lack of attention, rude staff; given refills for medication I was never on in the first place. Office tries to constantly upsell you on checkups - including full bloodwork, physicals and gynecological exams...? - without asking when the last time you had it was.

Would not recommend this doctor or the midtown health and wellness center. Barely got the time to interact wth the doctor. She was careless and had very little attention to detail. I wondered to myself several times how she hadnt lost her license by now. I saw her twice and she never even concluded the brief 2 minute conversations. Instead she'd just leave the room. The receptionists are also very disorganized. Really quite shocked and disappointed that one could find such low quality care in new york city.

I should have read the reviews on this doctor before I saw her. I just decided to go with her because she was close to my job. First off, the medical assistant was completely unprofessional and if I wanted to be harsh- uneducated. I understand these people are still in school and are still learning, but not only is professionalism common sense, but i'm pretty sure it was mentioned in most of your classes. Someone who mentions he decided he wanted to be in the medical field when he "saved a girl on the street that was passed out with her TOTO'S OUT"- no, you should not be in medicine if that is how you want to refer to a female. Furthermore, I had an ECG done on me- not my first. However, when a male is performing this, there should be a female in the room and was there a female? Nope, there wasn't. Finally meet Dr. Saltzman, she did not want to give me medication for my severe sinus infection because I told her Amox doesn't work that well anymore. She tried to get me to buy a herbal solution. Like no, that is not why i'm here. If I believed in that or wanted that, I would easily have bought that at a herbal store. The number one thing that has motivated me to write my first review about a doctor is that IT HAS BEEN MORE THAN A MONTH and I have called TWICE about my lab results and emailed. Nothing. I heard nothing. I got a letter in the mail explaining the bill to me, it said I have to pay out of pocket if a claim doesn't get approved. I'm sorry, last I checked you were in network? Why do I have to pay an out of network cost for a physical??????? She is seriously looking for a lawsuit- if not from me, from someone else.

My experience with Dr. Saltzman is below 1 star. Luis examined me and he was absolutely wonderful and sweet. Saltzman came in looked at me and said "you're fine" and walked right out. i had to yell out to her to let her know i needed a prescription! she came back scribbled a name and left saying she would call me back with my lab results. of course, she never called me back. i got a FINAL WARNING bill 3.5 months later saying i owed a hefty amount, which then i was told when i called that there was no balance. that bill now went into collections and its turns out it was because they never processed my insurance information (even though they're telling me I filled it out incorrectly... thats the point of handing over my insurance card... so that they can verify) and I was "paying out of pocket". my insurance should have covered this visit! Aside from their awful system, and the doctors lack of edicate, the front desk people are LOVELY, helpful and super patient with my frustration. they showed compassion and will hopefully sort out this bill since it should have been covered by insurance.

I really love Dr. Saltzman's support staff. They are lovely people. I went to see Dr. Saltzman because I wanted a PCP who is integrative, and Dr. Saltzman has provided me with supplements which are helpful and offered nutritional counseling. I guess I long for the days when doctors really seemed to want to know their patients and seemed to have an idea of how to connect with them. I feel like Dr. Saltzman's constant reminders that she will charge her clients if they do not show up for their appointments is off-putting. I feel like I was blamed for having gained weight when weight gain is both a symptom of my disease and is also a side effect oft the medication that I'm on. I feel like a lot of victim blaming happened in my first couple of visits with her, which were when I was initially diagnosed with Graves-- I was given the impression that every thing from my high blood pressure to my weight gain were MY fault when they were/are actually a result of the Graves. I absolutely can't believe the level of guilt and self-hatred that I internalized from those two visits before I became angry enough to give verbal feedback about my experience. I don't think that my feedback here is going to result in any kind of change-- it is clear that medical professionals in NY are compensated well for sub-par acknowledgement of their patients as human beings. Still, it is extra disappointing coming from a professional who self-identifies as integrative.

I had the worst experience with this office.I never give negative reviews but this woman cannot continue her unprofessional care. I first went in September of 2016 for my annual check up and the only thing that happened was my blood getting drawn. Then I finally went for my physical another day, mentioning my stomach pains, she said it was nothing. She also conducted my annual pap smear, where I again mentioned my stomach pain and cramps, where she once again said its all normal. I went for acupuncture for the my stomach discomfort and waited for 30 minutes to get into a room and then left in there for over an hour, where I just took the needles out myself and left. I then did allergy testing thinking maybe I am allergic to something, and that took forever. Finally after months of waiting for my results, calling and emailing I finally went in to get a copy of my lab results for everything, of course because they are so smart they messed up my lab work and I had to draw my blood again to redo the testing. Her own staff members think she's an disorganized. I finally visited a real doctor and came to find out I needed surgery to remove fifteen fibrosis and it was the cause of all my symptoms. This is after months of listening to non-sense from Saltzman. If she would have recommended a specialist and not say it was in my head six month ago, maybe I wouldn't need a big scar across my stomach from surgery now. Learn from my mistake, if you care for your life you will not go to this woman.

I left my visit with Dr. Saltzman, or rather I should say my visit with the medical assistant Luis, feeling great. Luis was professional and kind. I saw Dr. Saltzman for all of 5 minutes at the end of my appointment which unfortunately was a clear indication of how available she would be to me in the future. I had the hardest time getting a hold of Dr. Saltzman for lab results. On more than one occasion I was told Dr. Saltzman would be contacting me with the results but she did not. Ultimately they were provided by Luis. When I reached out with questions over questionable results, I was told I would need to talk to the doctor as expected but I still cannot get a hold of her. I have called and emailed to no avail. This is very concerning. If you want to be seen in and out with no follow up, this is the place for you. If you want a doctor who cares to follow up on serious matters, go elsewhere.

Not professional. Desk staff is pleasant and helpful but doctor sent my lab results to an out-of-network lab despite covering my insurance. Now, I owe a lot of money for routine testing. Wait time was bad. Google Search told me more than the doctor did. Do not see this doctor if you care about your health.

I've never written a zocdoc review - or even a yelp review - despite using both services for years now. I also haven't visited this "doctor" in quite some time, and for good reason. It occurred to me that other people might benefit from this WARNING: If you would like to avoid the most unprofessional, uncomfortable, inefficient and generally questionable “doctor's” environment, do not come here. I ended up using this office for basic prescriptions, purely out of laziness (close to work, didn’t want to deal w/ hassle of changing doctors) for far too long. Every time I left I swore I’d never go again and finally held myself to that. Dr. Saltzman’s ever-rotating front-desk staff (Whom she would speak poorly of behind their backs) was extremely rude, slow-moving, untrained and unprofessional. Dr. Saltzman herself-always in a rush- would spend no more than three minutes with me per visit, often leaving the door wide open, usually with other people’s vials of blood sitting on the counter (sounds crazy in retrospect)...during which time she would do two things, without fail: 1. Ask me when my last physical was, trying to upsell me on getting another in her office that day (read A LOT of this same feedback in other reviews) 2. Ask me if I was still taking the medication she had mistakenly listed on my chart from a YEAR prior…which I had never even taken before. Ever. Her PA was no better; truly the nail in the coffin of my never returning. She got major attitude with me after I mentioned I’d waited an hour for my appointment, commenting that I should be more patient and friendly, especially when doctors were doing me the favor of writing a prescription. She made me feel like a shady criminal for needing a basic medication. In preparing to change doctors I requested detailed bills for my visits which revealed that she was billing my insurance a different amount every time I came in…even though I came in for the EXACT same reason every, single, time - Prescription Refill. When I confronted the front desk about the issue, they became very squirrelly/evasive of the topic and promised they would correct it though they were fully incapable of explaining why it happened. In short, I truly cannot say enough bad things about this place. Blows my mind that it wasn’t shut down years ago, can’t believe I went as long as I did, scares me that a person like her can have a medical degree. Good luck.

General ignorant doctor. Asked me if I wanted to get cancer because I hadn't had a pap. I had just found out I was pregnant that morning and she said my baby was not going to develop properly because I follow a plant based vegan diet and spent quite a bit of time telling me I have to eat eggs. Very rude and opinionated.
