Went to Liakeas first on a Tuesday, when I realized that he had absolutely no time to see me, and a woman who works with him on Tues and Thursdays started a whirlwhind medical exam talking so fast \r
(so fast I cant even remember her name), not explaining a thing. \r
That being a horrible visit, I decided to give Dr. Liakeas a second chance on a Monday, when the crazy woman doctor was definitely not in (he was a recommendation from a doctor that I love, how bad could he be right? maybe he just happened to be busy that day...) The second time I went in to see him, he was crazy busy... again. After waiting for about 15 minutes, he calls me and says ""I have another patient in the other room. Do you need a little bit of my time today or a lot?"" Considering that this was a follow up appointment, I said ""a moderate amount?"" \r
No matter what insurance you have, I think its highly unacceptable to be asked that when you made an appointment well in advance. I think I probably said one word and all of a sudden he was talking SO fast, not even taking a breath, while simultaneously writng scrip after scrip of meds that I might need (but didn't want and didn't ask for)... and referrals of specialists that I don't really need to see... can we say ""dumping?"" Not one question about what my symptoms were, how I'm feeling... just some easy scips. No explanation of the meds that were being prescribed. side effects? who knows? I'll have to ask WebMD.\r
If you are looking for an easy scrip, please by all means go visit Dr. Liakeas. Don't have the greatest insurance? Don't worry about it... just be prepared to say one word and he'll do the rest of the talking. If, however, you're looking to have a GP who might be interested in learning a little more (even 5 minutes worth) of why you feel the way you do, continue your search, this is definitely not the doctor you want to come to.
Pros: What looks like a nice beauty parlor/salon in the same office
Cons: everything else
