I scheduled a consultation with Dr. Medoff because I'm new to the area and looking for a PCP. I'm in my 20s and aside from autoimmune issues, I'm fairly healthy. Dr. Medoff began the consultation talking about how he doesn't fully understand how to use phones and "apps" and how crazy the concept is that he can use a cell phone to call his mother in his spare time. I figured, oh, a nice old guy who kind of rambles - not an issue. Then I began to explain my reason for the appointment, stated my medical issues, and asked if he felt he could serve as my PCP.

Overall: Dr. Medoff is outdated in his medical thinking and extremely judgmental. He stated my autoimmune issues would go away if I "worked on it." He never reviewed my chart or information I filled out as a new patient prior to seeing me and when asking questions, he would jump to conclusions without forming the correct question to get the answer he wanted. I was just introducing him to my medical issues, almost like an interview, and asking if he felt he could manage my care. He stated he couldn't manage a person who thought they were a victim. What?!

Example: He asked if I was still seeing a Physical Therapist for my recent knee surgery (an issue I stated I was not expecting him to manage). I stated no, because insurance only pays for you to go so often and besides that, it is rather expensive. His conclusion: "So why aren't you continuing your exercises? I don't see patients who consider themselves victims. If you don't want to help yourself, I can't help you." Me: I'm still doing the exercises, just not seeing the therapist - which was the question you asked me. Don't jump to conclusions. [[I must admit that by this point he had already offended me and I was agitated with his assumptions]]

Dr. Medoff, from my brief experience, does not think "outside the box," is not current with technology, and has no issue stating his thoughts (which to me, as a new patient, seemed extremely judgmental in manner and not conducive).

Do people write reviews when they have great experiences? Not necessarily. But this experience was so bad I had to interrupt his rambling about how I'm to blame for my issues, state he is not the correct doctor for me, shake his hand, and leave. For me, I value a doctor who I can be open and honest with without the fear of judgments being brought upon me.

If you want an old-school, perhaps traditional thinking doctor (aka: new to technology and medical advancements), who lacks a certain bedside manner, then he's your guy.

This is a natural doctor who spends time talking with the patient and does not over-medicate. He knows his stuff.
