Loved the pre register online / fill out paper work before the appointment.

The office atmosphere (the office itself) was unattractive and blesk-looking. The patient room had only 1 chair. My husband had to stand in a corner. It eas small and depressing. It seemed that i was the first of several patients for the afternoon, and i felt the visit was somewhat rushed. The nurse and the doctor seemed in a hurry to move on to the next appts. While i can understand their time pressures, i was disappointed as my consult was to discuss possible surgery. I was also uncomfortable with his approach. He was a bit more blunt with me when discussing my weight. I was very dissatisfied with the whole experience. I do not wish to return to this office.

I received an excellent service by the staff, also the doctor was phenomenal, I gave me confidence and definitely I would recommend to him. He give me like confidence to have the surgery and he seems that he care and he was very understanding, he answered all my questions and he's an amazing doctor. I strongly believe I'm in good hands for my surgery.

The doctor should make the decision whether the patient needs surgery or not, in my case he gave me the responsibility to make that decision.

I would like to know ahead of my surgery if the procedure will be covered by medicare. I don't know who at the hospital to contact about that.

I felt my overall experience with Dr.Minkes was very positive. He listened to my concerns and spoke to me in a language I understood, as well as inquiring if I had any questions. Initially, went in there scared and confused but in the end left with a better understanding of my options for treatment, leaving me more at ease for what's to come. I would definitely recommend to friends and family.

I absolutely loved the service from beginning to end. I have never experienced this type of health situation in my life and for the doctor to calmly explain his reason why surgery is necessary makes me feel comfortable and ready for surgery. Also knowing my referral was submitted minutes after I left makes me feel that they understand my pain and care that I get this done as soon as possible.
