About Dr. Gregory J Bombassei MD
Dr. Gregory J Bombassei has the following 2 specialties
- Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism
An endocrinologist is a physician with extensive training in understanding, diagnosing and treating conditions related to the endocrine system. The endocrine system regulates the balance of hormones.
Conditions of the endocrine system involve an over-abundance, or deficiency of a certain hormone. While there is a range when it comes to the amount of a hormone that is deemed normal in a human, these specialists determine whether a person's amount of hormone is indicative of a health concern. Two conditions this specialist might treat are diabetes and obesity.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Like other never was able to see him due to rude office staff. My first appt, I had to wait 4 months for and after 2 months, was called and told I had to reschedule. I was then told that I would have additional months added on to wait to see him because they had to reschedule. When I said that I did not want to wait that long for something that was not my fault I was basically told too bad, find another dr. Really?
Never was able to get in to see him

Apparently this doctor is very popular because to get a regular appointment takes months. My husband, right before his surgery, got squeezed in during a cancellation but missed his appointment because he got stuck driving in a snowstorm. We called to apologize and reschedule and never heard back from them. Left multiple messages asking to reschedule but never got a return phone call. Finally got hold of someone who said that my husband had disqualified himself because of being a 'no show'. I can understand that policy, but I don't understand why they couldn't call me and let me know that instead of leaving me hanging for over two weeks while I tried to reach them.
