Ratings for Dr. Richard E. Honigman
My children have been seen by Dr. Honigman for years and we love him. He is awesome,funny,and very caring. I like how he always greets my boys according to their personality. Dr.Honigman is great and his office staff are excellent and respect your privacy. A+++ for them.
He is not very good with children. He whines. His office is a mess. When he doesn't know the answer to something he says it is a mycoplasm. On the other hand, Dr. Levine is THE BEST. Only requested to see him and the staff knew that. I miss him and wish he did not leave.
Went to him until about 8 yrs ago. He was not very comapssionate, or kind. He handled my child[ren] rough, and for 4 yrs told me not to worry about it. Then, he started saying we have a problem. Also, once when he was the doctor on call, he hung up on my husband, saying he couldnt be bothered with my sons ear infection problem! My husband took him to an emergency room,where an inner ear infection was diagnosed. When we came to his office for a follow up, he apologized for hanging up on my husband. Not long after, my children stopped being his patients. The receptionists used to make excuses for him. He was divorced twice-thats the reason, bad divorces??? Dr. Levine is sooo much better at dealing w/kids.
He rushed not just my son and I, but the rest of his patients out, he isn't very compassionate about children's normal behaviors such as crying when they get a shot, or being irritable when they are sick. I'm a pediatric nurse, and I was floored at how incredibly and unnecessarily rough he was with my infant son when handling him during an immunization. The top was when I was told by an ENT that the Dr over medicated my other son for much too long for an ear infection, refused at my request for a referral to an ENT, and caused a temporary (close to permanent) hearing impairment in my now four year old. He did far more damage than good with his lack of knowledge and prescription pad. He was rude, quick with me and spoke down especially when questioning anything he was telling me in regards to my son's health. I was much less than impressed and would not advise anyone to see this doctor. However Dr. Levine is wonderful, & was my pediatrician back in the day, & the staff is fabulous too.
