22/05/14 1 1 1 1 Alan's practice is abysmal: 1. His hours are terrible - he works a max of 20-30 hours/week, and most mornings doesn't go into work until 11, and the one morning that he goes in at 8, he leaves early. 2. Staff is unfriendly and unknowledgeable about what health insurance plans they accept. 3. Alan himself, while only working limited hours, does not spend his time reading up on current literature and studies, and therefore is not up-to-date with the most recent medical findings; when I know more than he does, its a problem! 4. Alan's bedside manner is horrendous; I am someone with thick skin that likes things told how they are, but Alan misrepresents the facts, and treats you like an idiot when really, he feels insecure because he lacks knowledge that his patients already have. I do not recommend him  Respond

13/02/13 4 4 5 5 Dr. Engelberg was my Primary Care Doc for about 8 years until my insurance changed. He's a straight shooter, and clearly very bright with a keen, slightly dry sense of humor; personally I liked him. I never had a major health crises while under his care, so my experience was limited to fairly basic health maintenance, but I always felt like I was in good hands. Office staff is clearly busy, but they always got everything done. Definite recomend.
