    My wife both go to different offices and the quality of the work doesn't differ in either office. They're expensive, but we have a good health plan and you're going to get really high quality stuff all the time. You don't have to worry about it. The only one time I had anything wrong, it was very quickly corrected and taken care of. They have really fantastic web applications so you can download your health data and all sorts of stuff. They're very progressive, in terms of availability of documents and stuff like that and test results. It's not like when you go to a regular doctor and they have you see a specialist that you have to drive across town to see one. All my information is readily available online. I could download and have all my tests and everything for the last 10 years. Not many doctors give you that stuff.

    He is very thorough and good. My mom has used him since 2001 or 2002. He is an Indian doctor. The waiting time to see him is not very long. He spends time to talk with us and we can ask questions and he will answer them. Any concerns we have, we can put them to him and he will answer them. His office and staff are beautiful.

    He takes his time with me and listens to what I have to say. He is very good on follow up and I have had him personally call me at 7 p.m. and tell me he had contacted the pharmacy to get a prescription filled that I needed. When my husband passed away he called and offered his condolences. When my son became ill and had to go to the emergency room the emergency nurse asked who he was going to see as a doctor. When he told her Dr. Rosenthal she said he was a very good doctor. He practices with a podiatrist and a chiropractor; there are three of them together. The podiatrist is the foot doctor for the Florida Panthers hockey team and he is very good. I went to him for my ankle. He practices three days a week some weeks and 2-1/2 days a week on others so sometimes it is hard to get in to see him. They are all very nice in the office. I have never had to wait very long. He is very concerned, remembers things and asks questions. He is a very nice man. So far he has always given me the best treatment I have needed. I have only been going to him since my husband passed away, which is two years, but so far I am satisfied.

    He has a lot of good nurse practitioners. They have very flexible hours, which is awesome! They see everything from pediatrics to geriatrics, so the whole family can come here. They are really easy to work with and Dr. Patterson does a lot of research. They do a lot of their lab work in house, which saves a lot of money.

    They are wonderful and they have been around forever. Dr. DeFreese has the best bedside manner. If you are concerned about something, he will sit and talk with you to figure out the problem without running you through a battery of tests. If they are needed however, he will not hesitate to do that as well. The office staff has the greatest group of women to work with ever. I have been going here for 18 years. They are absolutely phenomenal.

    I've gone to this medical practice for my annual exam for the past 6 years or so.  If you can't get in to see a doctor, the NP is great, too.  Convenient location, nice offices, and a friendly staff have kept me coming back.

    Before meeting Dr. Stinson and his team, I was the poster-child for avoiding the doctor's office at any cost. Not so anymore. The folks at Stat Medical genuinely care about their patients -- the whole patient, not just the body part that's giving you a problem.

    Their staff members are very friendly. They did everything on site and were able to perform blood work; I liked that. They could improve on their weight time but I know that it is because the doctors take their time with everybody so I have to wait a little bit and go past my appointment time.

    My experience with him is very good. I can get in when I need to see him. He spends a lot of time with me. He is attentive and knowledgeable on the things I needed to see him about. His staff is really good. You don't wait around in his waiting room long. He is very good.

    I was introduced to Dr. Wideck of this office from our NYC ENT at Columbia. On paper, Dr. Wideck has wonderful qualifications and frankly, is an extremely nice person. He is an extremely qualified doctor I am sure. My problem is his lack of availability and his office staff.

    My first appointment went great, albeit I called for an appointment in June but my daughter couldn't be seen until August. Since this was just an appointment to get established, and there were no pending issues, I had no problem with this. He examined my daughter, took her history, they copied her files from the NYC doctor and he requested she have a hearing test as well as a CT scan done before her next appointment in November. When we left the office, we made our appointment for the day before Thanksgiving to have the CT scan, hearing test then see the doctor all in one day (which was convenient as my daughter was off from school).

    Then in September, my daughter developed an ear infection. I called for an appointment, was told Dr. Wideck had no availability until October. I explained it was for an ear infection and was told there was no way he could see her (I was accustomed to her NY doctor seeing her whenever she had an issue) I asked if there was another doctor in the practice that could see her, which was accommodated. That doctor saw her and wrote a prescription for an ear drop but then said we needed to see Dr. Wideck with her issue (duh! that's what we were trying to do). When we got home, the prescription medication burned her ear terribly. I called the office and the doctor she saw wasn't in any longer so I asked to speak with Dr. Wideck whom I left a message for. Explained that my daughter was in, who she saw, what rx she got and I just wanted to know if it was normal if it burned. I asked that he or his assistant call me back on my cell phone as I wasn't home. I got home to a voice mail from his assistant stating that she couldn't respond to any medication questions and I should make an appointment to come in to see Dr. Wideck if my daughter had an issue. Really? Did you even listen to my message or pull her file? And it was after 5pm so their office was closed. I wound up calling my doc in NY who explained that the medication should burn the first day then ease up as we went along.

    The same routine went on in October as her ear infection never fully went away. Saw another doctor in the practice who prescribed another drop but then again, told us we should see Dr. Wideck. We explained that we couldn't get an appointment until November and we already had an appointment in November - could he help us get an appointment earlier? No, we had to go through the booking desk which of course, couldn't help us.

    Then, in early November, I got a call that Dr. Wideck wasn't working the day before Thanksgiving and we needed to reschedule. I explained how frustrating that is being that I had to pull my daughter out of school since he only works between 8-3:30. So we kept the CT scan apt and the hearing test apt on the day before Thanksgiving but then saw the doc the following week, first week of December.

    This appointment was the icing on the cake. First, his nurse comes in with an empty file and says, and quot;so you were referred by Dr.Wirtschafter?and quot; (this is a doctor in their practice who my daughter saw with her ear infection). So I said, and quot;No, my daughter is an established patient with Dr. Wideckand quot; She said, and quot;really?and quot; and quot;why don't I have a fileand quot;? I don't know, you copied like 100 pages the last time I was here for her file. Then Dr. Wideck came in, and quot;so, what can I do for you today?and quot;. Um, we are here to follow up on the CT scan and hearing test you ordered. and quot;The tests I ordered?and quot; I then had to re-explain how we were referred from our NYC doctor, his friend from medical school, we were already in blah blah blah. He then left the room and looked at the test results (which I am accustomed to seeing as well during our visits but OK, guess it's a secret). Then he came back and said he didn't like what he saw on the CT scan but wanted to get a closer look at her ear. Which he did, and then had to suction out a lot of debris from her ear (which was probably the result of her ear infections that she had in Sept/October). After all of this, I explained to him how I would really prefer my daughter see only him in the practice and was there any way when she had an infection, that he could fit her in? (her issue is recurring cholesteatomas which basically, grow when an infection is present so if they're not treated quickly and properly, they can grow and cause major issues, such as bone erosion and could require surgery). He went on to say how he wished he could clone himself and he doesn't manage his own schedule but if I ever had the need, to call his assistant. OK big blow off with a smile. On our way out, he said he really wanted to stay on top of her ear and see her in 3 weeks.

    So, when I checked out to pay my co pay I said he wanted to see her in 3 weeks. First appointment available - January 20 (It was the first week of December). So when I explained to the girl he needs to see her in three weeks and that it was ridiculous he wasn't available for 7 weeks - here's what I got - EYE ROLLS and the statement and quot;What would you like me to do? I don't control the hours he works!and quot; Really? I wanted to reach across the counter and pull out her weave. Seriously, this nasty girl should NOT be working with the general public.

    I left and that afternoon found a new ENT/Neurotologist who specializes in my daughters problem. An ENT who works more than 30 hours a week and who explained that whenever my daughter has an issue like an ear infection, he would INSIST that he see her asap as to not complicate her condition any further. THANK YOU.

    I would not recommend this practice to anyone. Sorry
