The nursing staff is arrogant and disrespectful to immediate family members. The hospital willfully violates the demand in the HIPAA law and regulations, that require hospitals to establish verification methods to speak with family members over the phone. The so called "Compliance Officer" at the hospital stated that the Tisch Hospital has decided to violate federal law, by creating an illegal internal policy of not only to refuse families over the phone from obtaining medical conditions of their loved ones, but also they have decided to ignore federal law by not establishing any telephone verification systems whatsoever. My father entered the hospital on October 22nd, 2015, for routine heart valve transplant through catherization. Although, all my my fathers vitals were weak, and did not appear to be recovering, he was ummarily discharged from the hospital, only to suffer a near complete organ failure do the the defective implanation of the new heart valve.Did the hospital discharge my father so that he would not die at their hospital, thus adversely effecting their heart valve survival statistics?Fortunately, St. Francis Hospital on Long Island aggressively treated my father until he regained most of his strength, and all of his organs recovered significantly, especially his heart.

The staff of Dr. Matthew Williams is rude, insulting, and disrespectful to family members of his elderly patients. Dr. Williams intentional angered an elderly patient just days after his surgery, about immediate family contact with his office staff. This caused the elderly patient much grief, and could have led a new medical crisis. All of the above immoral, and unethical actions of Dr. Williams and his staff, are in clear violation of the New York Board of Health. What kind of cardiologist would intentionally anger an elderly patient, while recovering from heart surgery?
The doctor was attentive and accountable, but the tendency for whoever answers the phone to lie to you to make you go away is fairly unacceptable. On Friday, the physician told me he would request that my lab results be put in priority, and told me to call back on Sunday for results. I did, and the receptionist told me I'd have to wait 3-5 business days. The doctor called me back on Monday morning and left me a voicemail telling me the results were in and to call him back for results. When I called back a few hours later, the receptionist again lied to me and said the labs weren't in yet. The physicians here seem fine, but they need to get new staff up front ASAP.
"I was diagnosed with an infection of plantar warts. I asked around and a few of my coworkers recommended NYC Podiatry Center. The doctor that saw me was very nice and his staff was courteous and timely. I had to go for a few repeat procedures - thankfully the warts were successfully removed. I give these foot doctors thumbs up!
I used there service a couple months ago and I swear they were fast and professional no hassle at all, I will not waste my time at another ER again here in the city.
Best Place to go when you need a doctor and its not life threatening. Great doctor. Great Staff and no wait.
I had foot surgery here, and the surgery…I had foot surgery here, and the surgery room was impeccably (clean). My son whom has Transverse Myelitis (a rare neurological condition - https://vimeo.com/21806274 ), some doctors never heard of sadly enough. Many doctors do not know the symptoms of TM, nor how to treat it. At this particular hospital they either knew, or found out while my son was there - whatever the case, they treated my son for his symptoms. The care was great. The doctors, nurses, and staff were professional, kind, good listeners, and knowledgeable. My son did not have to wait very long to see a doctor. The nurses and staff kept checking up on him. The ER was very clean. My son (TM symptoms) and I (with foot surgery)l got TOP NOTCH CARE HERE.
