Ratings for Dr. Claire Targoff
Wonderful doctor who has been accurate on all calls. Extremely skilled and has a second nature [intuition?] for testing you for the right things - She diagnosed many issues I'd been living with but never knew. It was nice to have a name and reason for feeling the way I did. Dr. Claire is kind, patient, smart, compassionate and funny. I feel I've hit the jackpot with her. Top ratings!
Dr. Targoff has been extremely helpful through out my bout with Lupus. She also was the Dr. that order the test that discovered I had cancer. Had the cancer not been discovered the results may have been different. She is very attentive and caring.
Dr. Targoff is a nice caring lady, she does her best to make me feel better and is up to date on recent studies. The downside of going to her is, the office is a bit disorganized and its hard to get an appointment and a call back. As far as Dr Targoff's punctuality, she does her best to be on time but never is, unfortunately. She can be a bit cranky at times as well if things don't go exactly her way and she forgets things and looses information that was previously given to her. And as far as listening goes she likes to be the one doing all the talking and misunderstands what is being said to her a lot. As far as insurance goes, I think she doesn't like patients that are on medicare, she did tell me that Medicare is a pain in the butt to work with, therefore I think she doesn't treat me as well as those who are not on Medicare. it shouldn't matter what insurance I have, if she accepts it then she shouldnt complain. Overall I think she would be ok if you don't mind all the of the cons.
This was my first appointment and I really liked Dr. Targoff. She listened, took a detailed history, and did a thorough physical exam. She seemed very knowledgeable and up to date on the latest treatments. Her office staff was extremely helpful and helped me locate my insurance information since I did not have my insurance card on me (my purse had been stolen prior to my appointment). I am a real baby when it comes to blood tests, and the person drawing the blood was great and very caring. I had a very favorable impression of Dr. Targoff and her team, and hope that she will be able to help me with my RA.
