The office is open crazy (and short) hours, is always overrun (and running behind), and doesn't handle bookings well. To his credit, he takes Medicare and walk-ins, but that makes the situation worse for you, brave appointment-maker! I made an appointment a couple weeks in advance by phone with a receptionist. Thought it was a little weird they didn't call to confirm, but had a work from home day and decided to go in. Turns out they had no record of my appointment; when I told them I had called it in, the receptionist answered, "Sorry...it's hard when you do it over the phone...." I'm really not sure what the front office exists for if they can't book appointments by phone! They promised to fit me in, but admitted it would be "a while."
Tellingly, the office was filled with retirees and unemployed people, several of whom made statements like "I've been here for four hours so far, but he's the best." "He said his nurses left a few weeks ago, so I guess he's just handling the patient load by himself now." "He always sees everyone who comes in before the doors close, but it always takes forever." I left after two hours and made an appointment with a different doctor.

Everything went well. I have been going to him for nearly 25 years, and I have never been disappointed. Dr. Sentome is very patient, nice, and he always takes the time meet with you about any health concerns.

I like everything about Dr.

. She is great because she listens to what your needs are. She doesn’t just write a prescription and sends you on your way. Her staff is good. I would tell others to go and see her. She is kind of late at times, but I would actually sit there and wait for her. I have been seeing her for over 15 years now. She is a good doctor and her husband was as well, but he passed away. So, I am yet to find a nose and throat doctor that would take care of my daughter’s needs the way he did and I can’t find one that is as thorough as he was. Dr.

is always available. When you call her office, you will usually get her answering machine that gives you her alternate number at least nine times out of ten. If she is not available, she will tell you the alternate number of another doctor who works with her and would be available. She is the greatest I have ever had. It is very hard to find a good doctor and somebody who actually sits and talks to you as well as gets to know you. I have been to a lot of doctors who never did that and I never want to go back to them. She gives you an appointment for 4 o’clock in the afternoon and it is a lot if you get to wait for 10 minutes considering other doctors. The office environment is very nice, clean and spotless. She has got entertainment for the kids, adults and the babies too. Punctuality is an issue. During the week she starts at 6 o’clock. because she is from

Island and comes all the way to Brooklyn. She is on time on Saturday’s, but not during the week. It makes sense because of the traffic and stuff like that on the weekdays. She is there at 2 o’clock in the afternoon on Saturday’s like always. You will actually have to call and find out if she has the last patient from Monday to Friday because it gets full. She normally calls and says that she is down to two more patients. She will also ask me to come to the office if I want. There is no other doctor like her in Brooklyn. The doctors in the area where I live think everybody is in the same category, but she doesn’t talk to you like that. We are not in the same category and we are different type of people and we are all the same. Some of those doctors are rude and I wouldn’t recommend them to anybody. She is normally not really late, but it is just her and she gets into talking to you. That is what really prolongs the situation when she is in the office. She gets down with you and you can talk to her about personal things. She will try to advice you. The staff is great and there is one person who is fantastic. Her bedside manner is fine. I would use her services in the future too.

She is just great! I've used for since 1996. My daughter become her patient in 2003. She is very polite and attentive. She will call you at home to check in to see how any new medications are working. She is fantastic!

office is often busy and new medical appointments are best made by calling in the morning of the day you wish to see him. Except for follow-up appointments and physicals, new appointments are not scheduled for later dates. Walk-in appointments are generally not accepted. While these arrangments may be very inconvenient, it is easy to see why his services are in such demand. He is patient, has excellent "bedside manner," provides clear explanations, and displays diagnostic as good as any doctor I have ever met (if not sometimes better). Please note that he shares his office with another doctor and you will need to specify that you wish to see Dr.

Dr.
Brooklyn Family Practice Doctors Provider Name Locked
is an excellent physician whom I have seen over many years. His diagnositic skills are excellent and he takes extra time when needed to evaluate the patient and disccuss diagnosis and treatment. As a result, he has a very successful, busy practice, which can make new appointments somewhat difficult, as described below. Making an appointment can be a little tricky, since new appointments are made by calling the morning of the day you wish to see him. This makes it hard to schedule time off work in advance. You can also expect a busy waiting room and being seen late, no matter how promptly you arrive for your appointment. You should be prepared for an hour wait. Prescription renewals are best done by stopping at the office in person, even if he does not need to see you. Call in advance or will have your file ready and catch the doctor between patients. Although some medications can be renewed over the phone, I don't recommend trying. I'm not sure whether to blame the pharmacy or the doctor, but watching the very busy medical office, I suspect I know where to look for an explanation.

seems like a good doctor and his staff is very friendly. They run their appointments on time and I usually don't have to wait more than a few minutes. His staff is pleasant and they are very helpful.

He's very thorough and takes his time and he doesn't rush me when I need to talk to him. His staff is very nice and the waiting room is very clean. There is train transportation available, as well, to the office.

My insurance covers the cost. I went into the office and she noticed some skin cancer symptoms and she referred me to another doctor who took care of this issue. I have been using her services for the last five years now. I think she is good at diagnostics and she will call personally to down a follow up. She can also speak Spanish if needed.
