I don't know what's going on with Dr. Sivkin's office, I'm finding a new doctor! She is getting rid of her friendly staff who has always been very kind and helpful; she goes through co-physicians yearly, I think Dr. Sivkin can't get along with anyone she hires, and her newest physician treats patients and the staff like dirt under her feet! I wasn't fully respected when I saw the new doctor who acted like she's all high and mighty and apparently she's just out of medical school. I want someone with more experience, and much friendlier to patients and the staff who fill her appointments! Dr Sivkin talks so fast I can't understand what she's trying to tell me about my results, and she was very rude to her own staff, in front of the patients in the front area. I think she wants to pay as few people as possible, and make her staff run in circles trying to do things all at once. I had to wait 50 minutes for staff to make phone calls for me cause Dr Sivkin said I need to see a specialist at Yale. Her staff would have helped me quickly, but Dr Sivkin didn't give them all the information about my results so they could make an efficient phone call to a specialist. The office phones kept ringing so the staff was constantly interrupted. Then other patients were leaving and needed follow up appointments, so again the staff was interrupted and everything was crazy there. I felt really bad for the staff who was working hard, while one doctor, Fran sat in the back on her lap top, and Dr Sivkin was drinking a Pepsi or something. The doctors are pretty harsh. I also don't understand why they don't update their waiting room. The saggy sofas look like they're 30 years old! Dr Sivkin made me come back too many times for simple results she could've just phoned me about, but she refuses to make calls about any results - good or bad - and I had to keep shelling out expensive co-pays. The staff work hard, but Dr Sivkin is letting them all go, so frankly this place SUCKS! On to new care somewhere else!

Dr. Sivkin talks so fast you can't understand her. Very uncaring and cold. Can see why she went through many partners at her practice. Front staff not helpful

They barely ever answer any of my questions over the phone, and I've had to make way too many appointments. They don't always adhere to the customer is always right policy here. Although I have seen them apologize for some mistakes it doesn't happen very often. They barely acknowledged me and rushed me in and out of the office. They are nice but WAY overbooked and the staff is clearly overworked. They should really allow for more time in between appointments if they want to keep any business. Not only did they not welcome my questions, they just dismissed them as unimportant. I felt like they didn't really care about helping me.

They paid close attention to me and all of my questions were answered. Their staff is very friendly and professional. The office was easy enough to find. I'll definitely be going back. I didn't have a bad experience.

The staff was friendly. The Dr was very rushed and didn't answer all my questions. It was pretty hard to find the building, but I eventually found it. If I couldn't find anyone better, I'd return again, but I'm hoping I can find better service somewhere else. The furniture seemed like something from a yard sale - old and not comfortable ... Dr Sivkins was OK. No one called me about my results. 2 of the women in the office were extra nice. I had to go 3 times just to find out nothing was wrong. Made me worry for n reason.

The staff is warm and supportive; Dr Sivkin is very friendly and approachable; easy to talk to and I never feel rushed. I always feel as though she knows exactly who I am, no matter how long since my last visit.
