    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.

    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.

    This office got us in, but it took a while, and then ended up scheduling an endoscopy, during which he was tested for allergic reaction and for celiac disease. I later found out he should have had an ultrasound (less invasive, no anesthesia, much cheaper) FIRST, and they scheduled that after - as a and quot;let's rule it outand quot; thing. In addition, they hadn't told me they were testing for celiac during the endoscopy - that test is invalid if the child has not had wheat daily for at least 4-6 weeks, and he hadn't had any because of a previous allergic reaction. He ALSO should have been off his Prevacid for a few days, and I was told he didn't need to be when I asked. So unless I repeat the test, putting my child under - AGAIN - the results are invalid and of no help. We still don't have a resolution on his gas pains.

    The annual visit was not an issue, but because of the changes in Health care reform evidently IUD's are now covered and are in quite high demand, so I ended up having an initial appt for this procedure being changed multiple times due to the office not having the ability to keep them in stock. They would make an appt then call to change it over and over again, which was very

    I am satisfied with the care my family gets from them. I haven't have any serious medical problem so basically I go for physical examination every year. I am not treated for anything. I have no complains.

    After a comprehensive hearing exam, the Audiologist said that I had a mild to moderate hearing loss. She recommended that I try behind the ear hearing aids with the speaker in the ear canal. Prices and benefits of different hearing aids were discussed and I was given a 45 day, no risk, evaluation period to try a set. After a couple of weeks, she fitted and programmed the aids for my unique hearing loss pattern. At a couple of followup appointments, she fine tuned the programming based on my feedback and living situation. My immediate and continuing reaction has been that these hearing aids are perfect for me.
    These are my third set of hearing aids. My first set of hearing aids made my own voice sound distorted and they did not work very well. The second set had a huge problem with feedback. The newest ones have eliminated both problems and for the first time in my adult life, I feel like I can pick up most of what is going on around me. I credit both improvements in technology and the Audiologist at Center for Hearing for this improvement. At every point in the process, the Audiologist (Terry Russo) was careful to listen to my needs and concerns. She was very responsive to the things that I thought were important, while not loosing sight of the things she knew were important from her experience. She is very professional and clearly knows her craft. She was able to tell me about the prior hearing aids and how improvements in technology could address some of the concerns I had in the past. Although, hearing aids are an investment, this office is set up to make the expense as manageable as possible and a great value overall.
    I would highly recommend this office or their office in Clifton Park if you are thinking about hearing aids.
