Dr.Calof spent a good amount of time talking to me. She seems like a sympathetic person which definitely helps the patient experience. Although I did not feel like she fully addressed my thyroid issues at first in the session until I pressed the matter as my thyroid was fluctuating and it was affecting my sleep and energy. She has been but I wish that what I have to say could be taken more seriously at times and not overlooked. That could be said for some other doctors too.

Was told to arrive at 12:30 for a 1:00 first time appointment. Sat in waiting room until at least 1:15 and there was no one at the front desk. Once I was called I did like the Dr. very much and the staff was helpful. But why have me get there 1/2 hour before my appointment only to sit for 45 minutes before anyone showed their face or acknowledged me?
