explained everything very clearly

I received great care by Dr Mezei and his team. [...]

excellent .


I have had some complications with my pregnancy, and am very thankful for the referral to this provider. He provided a clear explanation and ideas of intervention, and answered all my questions very knowledgeable. All the staff were polite and provided great customer service.

In follow up to a diagnosis I received through this specialist, I was sent to another facility for surgery. The surgeon's office gave me specific instructions for following up with Dr. Mezei's office and provided that information to Dr. Mezei. Despite those specifics, the front desk staff declined to schedule my follow up appointment as requested and were quite dismissive when I called. only when I insisted they check with Dr. Mezei did they agree that I could schedule an appointment. While I understand that they were trying to follow their usual guidelines, the responses were frustrating and I don't believe it is their call to determine the level of care needed for patients.

Dr. Mezei is great! He cares & listens thoroughly. He is an asset to providence.
