Made a couple of appointments in the past, for me and my children that i was unable to keep. ie: Not being allowed out of work on time, snowstorms this past year etc.... I even called in advance to cancel the appointments, when i was unable to make it. I called again to schedule an appointment and i was told by the receptionist that i was now considered a "walk-in" When i asked what that meant, she explained i can just walk in. I went into the office yesterday got x rays taken, and Dr. Minkowitz came in and gave me my exam. When the exam was over he said with a very huge additude (which he needs to have being he is so small in size) That i had three cavities from the last visit and two new ones. He then said, "I had better make my plans" I figured he was having a bad day and shrugged it off. While walking out to the front desk with him, I asked if there was anyone there to schedule my next appointment ( Everyone in the office had been gone by this time) He looked up at me and basically told me (raising his voice) that i am considered a walk in due to my history of cancelled appts.. I said "okay so when can you guarantee you will be here when i "walk in" so i can get my tooth filled? He said :i do not know you would have to call the morning of and see if i can take you" He then proceeded to try and lecture me about the cancelled appointments as if i am 12 years old.

I thought i was hearing things- I said you are kidding me right? You charge my insurance i pay your salary, i owe you no explanation as to why i cancelled any appointments, and you act as if you are doing me a favor?" Treating me like a second class citizen because of missed appts? He tried raising his voice again, which is when i told him his additude sucked too boot too. HE raised his voice some more (which i didnt hear what was said) Then he walked his short stumpy body to the back of the room. He lost 3 patients because of this.. He basically, refused to treat me as a patient.. Even in the past, the staff has been nasty and full with additude. I DO NOT recommend this dentist / midget to anyone in the Maspeth area. The only good thing about the place is that its clean and which is why i dealt with the additude in the past... He may think he is powerful and almighty in his office but when he steps outside he becomes even smaller than he is. If he thinks he is going to charge my insurance for the exam given yesterday which is my annual allowance he has another thing coming.. There are so many dentists in this area. I advise strongly not to choose this one.
