The visit overall was perfect. Dr. Kandel was patient, thorough, friendly, like usual. She is brilliant and knows how to address my issues. I have complete faith in her and her practice. There is not one negative thing I can say about her, in all of my visits with her, which have been many over the years. She takes a preventative approach to everything as well, which I love. She responds quickly with telephone questions and results, even late at night. She explains everything concisely, and with ease to understand. I hope she never retires... well for my sake.

The Front end people are very nice and helpful. I love Dr. Kandel's nurse .... She always remembers me and really cares. Dr. Kandel knows me so well and is always helpful and gets to the bottom of what is wrong. Thanks to All. Wait time was long but I know they can only go as fast as they can and need to give everyone the time they need.

I always have to wait at least a half hour in the waiting room and an additional HOUR in the exam room waiting for Dr. Kandel. I mentioned to her about the long wait and she made a sarcastic response about her being worth waiting for....really? My time is valuable too. She is always overbooked and in a hurry.
