Bad experience

My daughter has severe Eczema, so we were referred by her pediatrician. The first appointment we waited forever for a 5 min consultation to set up testing. The woman who conducted the testing on my 20 month daughter was not at all friendly! The office staff are not friendly either. The testing went ok, but when I asked a question the woman acted as though I was bothering her. I wish I could say the follow up with doctor was better. We saw Dr. Z and waited almost 90 min for a 5 min appointment. He did not even examine my daughter. When I asked if I could ask a question he told me he did not have time and to ask it on the patient portal. I paid my specialist co- pay for what!? I was highly Disappointed with the whole experience. He wanted to follow up to check on her eczema and I didn't bother scheduling it. She has a dermatologist, I refuse to waste anymore of my time or money!

Patient

I was misdiagnosed by this practice for 1 1/2 years. I was being treated for asthma yet I actually had coronary artery disease and ended up having a heart attack. The practice admitted it was their job to distinguish between asthma and heart and "they missed" it. Needless to say, I do not recommend this practice

Drug Reps

Dr Z as an allergist is ok however the office and Dr Z have zero respect for patients time! Sat in the office for over 1 1/2 hours after my appointment time 2 years ago as drug rep after drug rep went before me and never returned since.

Not the best experience

Lincoln Office is very disorganized and staff appears to be unprofessional and rush through testing/procedures. Dr. Z has little respect for patient or staff-pouts that he can't find his water bottle! Use to be good when he first set up practice.
