Medical Specialist reviews in Schenectady

    After my blood clot dr. vassolas delegated my care to 2 of his more experienced partners, Drs. Nolan and Armenia. They presided over my treatment for my 2 months hospital stay. The last time I had an appointment with dr. vassolas he sternly reprimanded me for 'a quite a disturbing set of events.' I left his office feeling that I really disappointed him after living through the 3 months (including Sunnyview rehab-learning to walk again) as he totally recommended my placement in a sub acute care center. He said I would never be able to take care of myself. Luckily I have 2 children who challenged Dr. Vassolas' recommendations.

    It was a very positive experience.  Dr. Metwally was so sweet and comfortable to talk to.  The sedation was wonderful!  I would recommend this practice highly.
    They do book initial appts several months out, that is the only issue.

    Over the years they have improved re technician compassion/bedside manner and staff friendliness. Sometimes you have to wait, but today not long.
    I have gone there for several routine and non-routine procedures. Today I had a test done which wasn't pleasant, but the technician, Lynn, made it more bearable.  I feel that she is very thorough and answers questions well.
    It's hard enough to go thru medical procedures, but if you have a provider who is empathetic about what you are going thru, it makes it easier. The non-hospital environment of this facility is a plus.
      But thought she should have worn gloves for this procedure.

    She is a NP who is better than any MD I've seen in over 10 years.  She is extremely educated and very well at articulating what her thoughts are.  She has been patient with me and has made my life extremely better.  After, CT Scans, MRI's countless physical therapists and chiroprators I still couldn't get any pain relief in my neck.  I do not like narcotics nor muscle relaxers as they just mask the problem and can lead to even bigger problems with chronic pain.  Such as addiction.  After seeing her today in tears and just a mess, she recommended an acupuncture.  THIS HAS MADE MY LIFE SUPER WONDERFUL NOW!!  If your out there searching for answers and find that doctors just give you the run around, I highly suggest you see Marissa.  Not all PCP's have the ability to heal but if you find that one special want to tell the world.  Just give her a try and I promise you won't be disappointed.

    Terrible experience all the way around. Office is like a cattle call run by surly staff. My prescribed tests were never scheduled and they were rude when I called to ask about them. They could not conclude any diagnosis, and I'm still sick. On top of all that I had a UTI for which they changed the prescription and that was not cured either.

    Coming from a completely medical family (father internist/cardiologist, mother RN, brother pediatric pulmonology) I know what it is to "give good medicine" and this place certainly knows how.
    Albany Gastroenterology is a large group, but that does not mean it's impersonal.  With one small exception, everyone I worked with there was professional, exceedingly kind, and focused on the patient.
    I had an endoscopy done.  For those that don't know, that's the little tube camera the goes down your throat and checks out your esophagus and stomach.  Most people are apprehensive, and I was no exception.
    Dr. Orris is one of the "big names" there, and while he wasn't jolly/cuddly friendly, he was cordial and very sharp.  His appointment scheduler made sure I could get in quickly but without impinging on my work schedule (I am an entrepreneur who travels a lot; if I don't travel, I don't work and don't get paid).
     The experience today was almost flawless.  I had my procedure done in their surgical suite upstairs from their main offices.  The only complaint I had was with their receptionist, who, when I said I was here for an endoscopy, flippantly said "Better you than me." Absolutely uncalled for, unprofessional and unfeeling.  We reported her to a couple of people for a reprimand and some sensitivity training.
    But she was the only bad apple.  Lindsay, my prep nurse, was cheerful and very patient with all of my questions.  She paid close attention when I explained I'd had a double mastectomy and that no IVs or blood pressure cuffs could be used on my right arm.  She marked the arm clearly so nobody would make a mistake.  She was the one who placed the needle for the conscious sedation drip, and take it from someone who has had a lot of surgeries and a lot of needle sticks -- it was smooth, easy, and barely a pinch.  She's really good.  She listened to my apprehensions and was willing to work with me with whatever it took to make sure I was willing to go through with the procedure.
    Next, we have Paula; another bright and cheerful nurse (but not "fake cheery" -- I know what that's like!), again at the top of her game.  I explained to her that if I was afraid that there were certain key phrases and affirmations she could say to me and it would calm me down.  She loved the idea, took my typed list and clipped it to the front of her materials.    When we got into the surgical suite itself, and I explained that I had trouble with throat-numbing materials, she agreed with my suggestion to "up the Versed" before I took them.
    And *PING* that is the last thing I remember!  Apparently I did beautifully.  Could have fooled me; I didn't even know when they started.  
    Michael, my third nursing partner, was very solicitous and made sure I was warm enough, had water, and was clear in the brain and steady on the legs before I got dressed and went out to meet my husband.
    Dr. Orris came by with his findings (how lucky! nothing awful) and instructions, and we were sent home with pretty pictures and descriptions of the procedure, and some instructions.  (Trust me; unless you are a doctor, your insides look pretty weird, but it's always good to have the information for your own medical file.)
    This is medicine the way it should be practiced.  No, none of us wants to go through "getting scoped" but these folks can be trusted to do a great job.  HIghly recommended.

    They have been very good. They are primarily in-house rehab, but they also do hearing aids and ancillary things like that. It's in the middle of a rehab center, so it's a busy environment. That occasion when I was over there with her and one other occasion about a year ago; everybody has been very professional and very helpful particularly with an elderly person who was very hard of hearing and in moderate dementia. They were very good with her. She has only been over there twice for hearing aid evaluations and fitting. I was only there to be with her while she was going through the process. She will probably use them again in the future.

    I've been going there since I was a little kid.  It is a huge building, but they are good in getting back to you.  They are really fast about getting an appointment.  I've never called and not been able to be seen on that same day.

    They're very convenient. They're located just a couple of blocks away. They're very nice. If you have a health issue, they get you right in. Everybody there was super friendly. Overall, I was very happy.

    Dr Baldauf is difficult to get in to see the first time but the wait is worth it. He takes the time to do a thorough exam and listens to what you tell him. He identified the problem as arthritis after a thorough exam and did not rush to a conclusion.
