I have gone to the office in Bellmore 4 times - each time I waited over an hour and a half to see the doctor. The office is completely disorganized, and when you do ask when you are going to be seen, they always tell you "you're next," but then proceed to call back more patients ahead of you. Also, two of the times I went there, the nurses didn't even realize I was pregnant (even though it was on my chart which they had in their hands, and I was there for specific appointments related to pregnancy AND had confirmed the pregnancy in that office on my second visit).

The only reason I continued to go through my 4th appointment was because I needed to get my ultrasound results. When I complained to Dr. Glasser, instead of trying to persuade me to stay, she blew me off and could have cared less about what was going on with me and my pregnancy. There was very little care put into my visits there, and my husband and I were very dissatisfied with the level of care we were receiving. I have since found another doctor who was appalled at the level of care I received at Long Island Women's Health Care. Anyone who is pregnant should not have to sit in a waiting room for over an hour and a half to see their doctor, or to get an ultrasound done - and neither should ANY patient for that matter. When you're pregnant you shouldn't be stressing out about a doctors appointment and when, or if, you're going to be seen because the office can't keep themselves on schedule. I highly suggest looking somewhere else for another doctor - do not go here.
Pros: convenient location
Cons: waiting time, poor patient care, unhelpful
