I went to see Dr. Alavi at Marinelli and Feldman’s office. The young nurse is HORRIBLE. She is arrogant, rude and hurried. She did everything possible to try and humiliation and embarrass me. She disclosed information about my illness within hearing range of other staff members and patients. SHE VIOLATED MY CONFIDENTIALITY. She has no regard for your dignity or privacy. I will not be going back.

Love Dr. Marinelli. He is a very patient, knowledgable and compassionate man. He has a wonderful bedside manner. No problems at all after my surgery. Answered all my questions and made me feel at ease. I will definitely refer friends to him.

Bedside Manner
Spends Time with Patients
Dr. Marinelli lacks compassion and has no patience with grown women whose pain and discomfort thresholds are low (with regard to uncomfortable tests). If you are at all anxious about having a catheter jammed up your urethera, this is not the doctor for you. He will not show any interest in helping you overcome your fear or discuss the procedure with you at any length, especially if you call over the telephone. Most of the time you will be with his nurses. Be prepared if you are a fusser, like me, to be scolded, berated, or belittled by Dr. Marinelli, who will tell you that you are the only one who has ever responded "that way." Not a nice man. Shame on him. If you look closely at his background, you will see that the medical institution he attended has only one star. I guess they left out education on patient-doctor communication or how to reassure a nervous patient.
