Don't be fooled, this place is a JOKE!!!

Hi Folks, I usually don't take the time to post ratings unless I truly feel that I need to warn the public of how BAD something is. This place is an absolute JOKE and I can't believe the good reviews I've seen. You wait and you wait and you wait and then Dr. Broomberg comes in gives a quick diagnosis and then sends you on your way. He gave me very little instruction and I felt absolutely lost after leaving that place. I'd like to also note that he was chatting about the patient's cancer issues in the room next door and how bad it was . . . as he was working with me. How unprofessional!! Another note, the front desk is closed from noon - 2PM (and they don't return on time). Apparently they need a 2 hour lunch. Last time I went in to get tested for diabetes and they lost my file and basically told me I was misdiagnosed the first time. It's frustrating just talking about this place. Oh and I just recently went in and Dr. Broomberg is now gone for 1 month. His replacement wreaks of cigarettes . . . . very reassuring to know your doctor doesn't care about his own health.

A very uncaring and unprofessional doctor and staff!!!!

I was with this doctor for a year. Suddenly, my herniated disc in my neck got severely worse and the pain was beyond belief!! I needed some forms signed and faxed back to me for my disability and the staff, Carrie, kept telling me for 3 days that it was ready and she would be faxing it to me within 30 minutes. On the 3rd day, I called them 3 times to see why it never was faxed and she lied and said she never told me that and that I was disruptive to their office for calling them 3 times in one day!! She is lazy and very uncaring about the pain her patients are in. They told me on the 3rd day they were discharging me as a patient and not to call them anynore!! Wow!! What caring and professionalism is that!!?? Never go to this doctor if you are in severe pain because they don't care how you are or what you are going through!!
