GREAT EXPERIENCE THERE

Thank you so much Dr. Burstyn for coming in on your night off to deliver my son--as always you were calm and made me feel so comfortable. I was so grateful to have you there. You have been such an amazing doctor and we appreciate the care you provided me with.

TERRIBLE POLICIES AND PROCEDURES THAT ARE INAPPROPRIATE.

I cannot even tell you how severely disappointed I am in the "Manager" (who never even told us his name) of Dr. Burstyn's office (her husband). We never even were seen by Dr. Burstyn so I cannot tell you anything about that because we were refused care because of a form we would not sign. The form indicates that even if it is an INN network provider, if some ambiguous amount of time goes by and they do not get paid--they can BALANCE BILL YOU. Which is not allowed for INN providers-EVER. So not only should the form never be an issue, the fact that he tried to get us to sign it in order to be see is asinine. The fact that nobody reads what they are signing these days is even MORE DISTURBING. NEEDLESS TO SAY, THE FIRST IMPRESSION WAS TERRIBLE. WE WILL NOT BE GOING BACK. PEOPLE SHOULD BE MORE AWARE AND NOT IGNORANT OF THE THINGS THEY ARE SIGNING. THEY SHOULD NOT EVEN BE ALLOWED TO HAVE PATIENTS SIGN THAT FORM EITHER.

10 STARS

I would give her 10 stars if I could. My quality of life changes drastically because of procedure she performed. I did not expect such a drastic change after suffering for 3 years. God bless her, her staff, and their families!!
