Dr. Glenn J Muraca has the following 1 specialty
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Don't like how it's just a pharmacy and referral service. Does not give you a diagnosis until you go to a specialist. I can't stand Wayne, the office manager. The office staff is inefficient. Never have your results, but tell you to make a visit anyway. How can you do that? And you get a quack in a box. You make an appointment with Dr. Muraca, and get someone else because he has bankers hours. All they want is your money.
The office is inefficient and unprofessional. I am on hold forever, and there are so many doctors there, you get one pulled out of a hat, and rarely get Dr. Muraca or his partner, Dr. Marciano. I was a patient of his, and got the runaround for results, when they were RIGHT THERE! They told me they weren't, lied to my insurance when I filed a grievance against them. Charging 75 cents per pg for you to have your medical records is ASININE! And they are giving me a hard time sending them to my new doctor! That is a quality of care issue!
I recommend Doctor Muraca because he listens very carefully and with his diagnosis/prescriptions I was able to get better in a week. I had seen other doctors however they weren't even able to diagnose my illness. I recommend him to anyone. I completely trust him. His office is a bit far to Manhattan but finding the right doctor whim I can count on is worth the time. His office follows up and I thank all the staff.
Very experienced and caring Doctor. A rare breed in this day and age of medicine. Better than any physician in his field
