still coughing

Have had a cough for 6 weeks. Tried everything otc, got worse, saw this doctor. He rushed, told me to try all the same medicine I have been on, and that was it. Waste of time. Horrible to have a doctor who pushes you out the door.

Friendly And Listens To Patient

Dr. Ondash is friendly and makes the patient glad to be there and doctored by him. He gives great advice, AND LISTENS TO THE PATIENT. To me, that is important in any Dr./Patient reltionship. In fact, he's about the only Dr. I have ever had that has listened. He spends all the time needed with a patient.

For Dr. Ondash and Staff

Dr. Ondash is Mom's doctor and we love him and his staff. Mom has always had a short wait, the staff is pleasant/efficient and Dr. Ondash is experienced and takes time to make sure all my and Mom's questions are answered. He saw her frequently in the beginning and it makes me feel better to know Mom is in his care.

pick one symptom

I had several symptoms and took the time to make a list so that I wouldn't forget anything. I hoped that having the full picture would help diagnose what was wrong with me. When presented with my list I was told to pick one as he didn't have time to look at all of them. BTW I had a gluten allergy. This doctor didn't have a clue and was rude. That was my last appointment with him.
