The staff & office have A lot of issues!!! THEY ARE RUDE AND VERY LAZY..WHEN MY CHILD WAS VERY SICK AND I CALLED FOR HIM TO CALL IN A SCRIPT FOR HER SYMPTOMS THEY SAID SHE NEEDS TO SEE THE DR OK I SAID CAN I BRING HER OVER THAT WAS ABOUT 5:45 PM ON A MONDAY IN WHICH THEY ARE OPEN TO 7 PM THE PERSON AT THE FRONT DESK WHO WAS VERY NASTY SAID WE ARE DONE FOR THE DAY I SAID BUT AREN'T YOU OPEN UNTIL 7, HER COMMENT WAS YES BUT HE HAS 2 MORE PATIENTS AND IS NOT SEEING ANYMORE TONIGHT.....THERE WAS NO ONE THERE WAITING TO SEE HIM EITHER YOU CAN'T GET A REGULAR APPOINTMENT AND DEFINITELY CAN NOT GET A SICK APPOINTMENT... I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO NO ONE EVER!!!!!!EINSTEIN MEDICAL CENTER IS HORRIBLE!!!!
Contacting this office is horrible. can't get thru. they don't return calls. Dr. Scaven is OK but it is now becoming virtually impossible to remain at this office. Because of this i would never consider going to Einstein Hospital in a million years because they staff this place. They obviously couldn't care less about patients. Small improvement in staff in last year but still unacceptable and the worst of all doctors offices i have ever dealt with. Stay away. I wish I had!
Every item they ask u to select such as ease of appt, bedside manner, follows up, ect.. are all EXACTLY WHAT DOES NOT HAPPEN AT THIS OFFICE. The office is impossible to get into, and even though u have a 15 minute past your appt time to still be seen, i have been told its too late when it was 5 minutes and 7! after weeks of waiting for things that were not to be put off as they needed testing weekly.. Nothing changed once i told the dr. I told him in confidence things i wanted to be honest about and brought all the paperwork to show from past doctors. I was more than honest! Instead i too have been treated like a non entity..waiting for hours(several times) in the waiting room even as he took many who came in after me, and i sat alone as all went to lunch only to be seen last..more than one time.. I get the feeling he dont like me and he lets it be known ..HOW RUDE.. i have never been disliked by anyone or dr.s that literally let me know by their treatment of me. If the board saw how i was treated with all my ailments and diseases he would be fired. NOBODY DESERVES THAT,BUT ESP. ONE WHO HAS SOOO MUCH WRONG WITH THEM! He looks at me as if i am crazy when i say anything to him, so i dont even want to talk .. just get my referrals and get out of this office soon as i find a normal dr.(after this experience i am scared to get another him, and office so inefficient! I have had tests, perscriptions,ect. that we are told to call in and will get a call back by the next day..never happens! I have been with out the medicine i need for days sick in bed as he cant get me in or call me back...i have had serious surgery only a few months ago and cant get in to get a referral and ck up since they didnt have appts. and when i finally got to the long awaited appointment it was a snow day and was told they were closed. i understand that, but three t imes last year i was told on days i had appts. that i didnt... He purposely makes one try to feel like an idiot but i realize he is the only one that is making himself look like one, for many of his waiting patients have complained to me about their own experiences and could see how i was treated as he came into the waiting room after hours of waiting speaking to me like i was a pesky patient. i have been nothing but too easy going..obviously maybe being a squeky wheel would get me further..now he only is referring to his team of drs. when i have specialists in those fields for years. I went to a few and they were just as odd...I am not just a yearly visit person, to them he is probly great with just small things like shots and looking at ones throat... but with all my health issues i need a dr with sincere caring and no game playing..and trust me he plays games with the waiting and coming out to the wait room to think he will say something that is only a big no no for him, even the staff looked sick as they saw the treatment i was getting after an all day wait. i was told he loves to help and loves getting to the bottom of things.. well, that was wrong. HE HAS MADE ME SICKER, BACKED UP ON ALL MY REPORTS, REFERRALS AND MEDICATIONS.. this is a dr, and office i would love to see get inspected on their treatment of others... oh, and he loves patients who tell him dirty jokes and insane things as i hear those patients love him and with them he laughs,,,where is the dr here......sadly, he lost a great patient and several others who i referred prior to my treatment. His loss as i can easily find anyone better than him and any office much more in tune with their drs.(i dont blame them but all the staff that he probly confuses also) I tried and tried..but this patient is giving up as i should have a long time ago!
I have been to this office only a handful of times, and making an appointment was more of an ailment than what I was actually going in for. I have countlessly tried to make an appointment with Dr. Scaven, but am always shoved off to another physician. And again this year I have tried on NUMEROUS occassions to make an appointment; once they called and it was cancelled the day before my appointment. Then I tried many times to make a new appointment, they said they will call me back, yet they call my homephone when I was at work instead of my cell phone, and when I called I got the office's voicemail, and no returned call! This office is a nightmare, I honestly do not know how they are still operating.
