Great doctor!

I would hope Dr. Chertok reads some of his reviews. He is a very good doctor and has a solid reputation. The problem is his staff, Melissa to be exact. I am not the only one who thinks she is incredible rude and outright arrogant. After talking to other patients of his I get the same feedback. She may run a tight ship, but she has caused some of his patients to seek medical treatment elsewhere.

Well read. Excellent communicator. Teaches. Integrates all current information into his treatment while incorporating medical practices that are tried and true. Does not let pharmacy reps into his office. Gets med updates on his phone every week.

Dr. Chertok is the best doctor in town. He spends time with you, working with you toward wellness, using all his experience and intelligence and sometimes looking up new info on his computer. He is AWESOME. All of the staff in the back are terrific--out front is a different story. I have gone to Dr. C. for 12 years and have considered changing doctors because I so dread dealing with those awful people, especially Melissa. A shame.

Patient Care Manager is terrible, no class, hasty, not friendly, not courteous, not cooperative. Dr. Chertock is among the best doctors I have ever seen. However, My wife and I no longer see him because of very bad experiences with Melissa, the Patient Care Manager.

Staff

Dr. Chertok is a great doctor. He is our family doctor and we are very happy with him. If possible, try your best to avoid Lisa the girl out front. Very poor attitude. Unhelpful and down right arrogant. It's a shame because of the great practices that Dr. Chertok has. I do not know why she is still there.
