29/03/11 1 3 3 2 The reviews are very accurate about the staff. I am actually surprised that in todays society a doctor would allow this type of unprofessionalism. The staff is so loud and the office is pretty dirty and equipment is very old.

13/11/07 1 1 1 2 My wife and I moved in Nassau County last Year.We were approved for Medicaid and United Healthcare as a primary insurance.Dr.Nussbaum was affirmed as our primary phisician from Department of Social Services.We brought all this paperwork to his office.We wanted to see our 'so called' primary phisician to say hello.We also repeatedly told him that we have a Medicaid.He assured as that will be no charge for the visit.He tricked as in a way that he took a blood pressure.A couple days later he charged each of as $50.00 for a visit and on the top of it he sent it to the Collection Department.He cheat us and blackmail us.It's a shame that that very greedy doctor is approved primary phisician in our area.
