Very Attentive

Dr. Samuel was very attentive for how busy the clinic was. Sure the wait time was long, but it's a walk-in clinic in NYC. You can't expect instant service. When he did call me in, he was very patient and helpful. The actual checkout was 15 mins and I got the prescription I needed.

Dr. Samuel Alstein doesn

Sam is a decent Doctor but that is about it. He is very impatient and he pushes me out the door. No genuine care at all. You will wait weeks to get prescriptions filled or an appointment. I have left 9 messages in the last 2 mos but not one return call. The staff are very un-helpful. When he was on 61st it was much better. I just dropped him as a Doctor. Imagine if it was high blood pressure pills!?
