No discussion whatsoever.No comment on existing condition.No comments on medications. Visit was a waste of time

This was my first visit with Dr. Saleem since my long time Cardiologist retired.

3 out of 5 stars

Felt very rushed by Dr. He failed to review my blood work and had do leave as he had not reviewed the results of a test I had taken that morning a half hour prior to seeing him

My appt was for 11:15. I wasn't taken into a room until 11:50. At this point I knew I had another appt @ 1:00 in East Hampton, never expecting my 11:15 appt to be so late when I told the dr. I had another appointment, he rushed me through and I felt wasn't being given the attention I needed.

Rushed. Dismissive. After vidit summary incorrect. Was great in the hospital but not great in follow up appointment. Switched to another doctor in the practice.

Dr Saleem is good.

4 out of 5 stars

Doctor rarely looked at me, but always kept his right ear towards me which I found disconcerting at the time. But when I received his written report, it was clear that he had been paying close attention to the many pertinent questions he asked me - so I wonder now if that's his better ear.
