I have been a patient with Dr. Alfred Hurwitz for over 18 years. He has been a family doctor for over 25. He is thorough, compassionate and goes above and beyond.
He does not even need to open my chart, for he always knows who I am, my past health issues, and they go above and beyond the gastric areas.
He takes the time to return all phone calls, and his office staff will always squeeze me in if something is urgent.
I have never had a problem with his office staff. They have always been kind, communicative and professional.
Dr. Hurwitz is the last of the Patch Adams left. His bedside manner should be studied and learned by 99% of other physicians in our valley.
He always takes the time to ask about my family, I don’t have to go through a ballard of questions, because he remembers how many children I have, the personal issues I have faced and never cuts my time short during my exams.
He is calm, positive and takes the time to speak in uncomplicated sentences, so you understand just what your health issues are, and how they can be treated.
I am the 3rd generation to be blessed to have him as my healthcare provider.
I highly recommend him and his office staff, however, I do know that his practice is quite full, so if you can get in to see him, consider yourself blessed.
My advice response regarding any negative comments, have your referring physician call for you to get an appointment.
And if your physician will not call for you, then you might want to advise them to rent the movie Patch Adams to learn how to be a real doctor, not just by title and passing an exam.
There is so much more to it and Dr. Hurwitz has all that and more.
