    Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.

Time to change doctors

Dr. Jalowsky is not respectful, of the time of patients -- waits are often more than an hour. He does not listen to the patient and changes medications prescribed by specialists in specific fields of medicine. He has repeatedly ordered blood tests that have given the same results. It is time to change doctors.

Don't Go To This Clinic

If you take important medications, do NOT go to this clinic. First, Dr Ruben increased a medication by 50 MCG for no reason and didn't tell me. Then when I saw Jawolsky because my Ruben was sick, he okayed a refilled one if my thyroid meds in FIVE TIMES STRONGER than I normally took. Since it is a small white pill, I didn't notice. THREE MORE REFILLS went in, one by Ruben at this clinic. He didn't notice the mix up with my other thyroid med OR this one. SO, SEVEN MONTHS of the wrong dosage and wondering why I feel so bad has left me angry. I already left the clinicclinic (to get an accurate diagnosis of a paralyzed diaphram) when my new SMART WONDERFUL DOCTOR, found the problem. Was it Jawolsky? His substandard office worker? Who knows? What I DO KNOW is IF they do this with HEART MEDICINE, someone could DIE!!!

Rude, Doesn't want patients with insurance forms

My first visit, he was rude and threatening. No humor. Said my being a patient depended on me not coming in with any more insurance forms. 10 minute exam on first visit. I requested a physical for insurance purposes. My last doctor went on sabbatical and never returned so I had an insurance form needing a doctors signature. I quit him before it cost me more time, pain and after reading these bad reviews that seemed right on.
