While the front desk staff is unlikely to give you the warm fuzzies, Dr. Pate's staff was courteous and reasonably efficient from the moment I walked in the door. I went in as a new patient for an annual exam and to get a blood draw for my biometrics (for my insurance). I waited approximately 15 minutes before I was taken to an exam room. The assistant who took my vitals was very pleasant and told me what my blood pressure and pulse were and that they were normal, without my asking, which I appreciated since sometimes they don't say a word and you never really know. The nurse practitioner was also very pleasant but was rather young for my preference as a middle-aged woman and I felt a bit pressured by her to have certain preventative procedures done (mammogram, dermatology scan, etc. ). I relented and agreed to let them do an EKG, which they recommended as general procedure. There was no mention of the result. I was in the exam room for an hour before I saw Dr. Pate but she was the 4th practitioner I saw today (after medical assistant, nurse practitioner, and EKG tech) so there were no excessive wait times when I was in the room alone. Dr. Pate was wonderful. She has a very professional, yet warm and personable manner. She made me feel very comfortable, like talking to a friend. I am new to NYC from California and I was a bit nervous about seeing a doctor who was more brusque than I was accustomed to, but with Dr. Pate there was no need for worry. I didn't have much to say since I was only there for the biometrics, and so I didn't spend much time with Dr. Pate, but I got the feeling that she would have been very willing to discuss any concerns I had, had I had any. We discussed some preventative health measures I might want to consider, but I did not feel pressured by her at all to take action. While I felt pretty neutral to slightly negative about other members of the staff, I would wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Pate! After I saw Dr. Pate, I went right upstairs in the same building for the blood draw, which took about 5-10 minutes. It was really great how easy and quick it was!
