Specialties

Dr. Angel M Alcantara has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.

Horrible

If you want to have an appointment time that you can put in your schedule, you have to show up at 8am so that you can be the first person in line at the door. Then you wait an hour for the receptionist to open the door at 9am. Then you sit in the waiting area until Dr. Alcantara shows up at 10 or 11. If you were first in line then hopefully you'll be out by noon. If you're not first or second in line at the door, then who knows when you'll get out. Also, as stated in an other review, he wants to see you every month and won't provide refills for stable conditions. Shame on you, New York Presbyterian for associating with such unprofessional behavior.

One Star

This doctor only cares about money. Does not give refills to force patients to come back & pay for a visit whether they need to be seen or not. Gives appointments for 9:00 AM & shows up to the office at 11:30 AM - All the times & never returns calls. He is a good doctor but needs to reorganize his business practices.
