Up until about 2 weeks ago Dr David Hodes at Palisades Pulmonary in West Nyack was my primary care Dr for about 5 years, as well as my wife's. But I've mostly only seen his nurse Lorraine Olivero Dr Hodes had told my wife "if you or your husband ever have something that can't wait, always call me and I'll find a way to fit you in, be persistent". Well, about a week ago I developed shingles on my left eye and my ophthalmologist told me after his visit, to see my primary care Dr right away. I called DR Hodes a few times and finally got a call back not from the Dr but the receptionist, telling me to go to the emergency ward. I said that's unacceptable. Dr Hodes finally called me back, yelling at me right from the start and said I was ignoring his professional opinion by not going to the emergency room. He then said I could go to his nurse practitioner and he'd "stick his head in". Ah yes, his nurse, Lorraine Olivero. I didn't want to see her anymore because the last time I did, she offered for me to come to her house at night for 'energy healing' $500 in cash. I don't know what kind of voodoo that is but I wanted no part of her from that minute forward. The Dr then drags me to the post office to pick up a registered letter saying I could no longer be his patient. Jeez, I think I might cry. This man's dishonesty, pompousness and rudeness should be known

Dr. Hodes is definitely not fast; you'll wait and get seen after your scheduled appointment time 9 times out of 10, but he's awesome! Brilliant doctor and diagnostician who really cares about his patients. He came highly recommended by (medical professional) family and friends. Esp for those with pulmonary issues.
