Specialties

Dr. Nathaniel H Himelstein 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.

Awards have to be a joke

Wrong diagnosis and meds over and over, looses data in file. Doesn't update file from visit to visit on what there for or medications. Does not like or want to give referrals to specialists. Says one thing and writes down something else. You have to talk very slow and loud for him to hear you and then the data is still written down wrong. Office is very sloppy. Needs to have retired 10 years ago.

Four Stars

Definitely needs a new front office staff. They don't listen authentically, they're not forthright, they don't answer questions, and they make a habit of trying to be off the phone in three seconds or less. I had difficulties with the person before, called to mend things, and got off the phone more upset than when I had dialed. This is definitely NOT someone a patient needs to deal with.

Great Doctor

Been my doctor on & off (due to insurance) for 36 years and he has always taking the time to do what is necessary without the corporate bull that a lot of Dr's are doing. He will take time for you and not just give you 5 -6 minutes like most.
