More than 1 hour wait past my scheduled time but the doctor was efficient and observant.”
Despite the long wait I was happy to see doctor Shapiro...he’s very nice and very knowledgeable...I went to a dermatologist that was closer to where I lived and was treated for a skin fungus which was the peeling and cracking of my skin which started in February the medication given made it worst and I decided to visit vanguard once again where I was told it was actually an allergic reaction two weeks later and my chin Is much better and there is relief”
They were on time”
I had to cancel my appointment due to my schedule conflict. It was easy to reach out to a receptionist though and cancel it.”
The experience was amazing, the treatment I received was a success and the service was very helpful. I would highly recommend”
Excellent work from the doctors/PAs, I've seen Dr Shapiro and PA Mithal. However, the front desk staff are very chatty. They are always on their phones texting and/or talking out loud to each other about their personal lives. Found out from their conversation that they both live in Brooklyn, something I do not wish to know, but had no choice to listen to. Came in for a visit and the front desk staff was using the company phone to talk to a technician who "walked out" (yes I saw her walk out of the office) to get Dunkin Donuts breakfast. On top of that, the receptionist and technician were asking the patients how to get to Dunkin Donuts, very unprofessional. Not only was the receptionist playfully cursing on the phone, but it seemed like they stopped taking patients in until the technician came back from Dunkin Donuts with their breakfast.”
