Verified Patient Reviews
The Dr. took the time to go over my blood work and even re do a test that was concerning. He had a good bedside manner and the staff was courteous and professional.
He was very through and explained everything to my mom! He takes his time with his patients!
Doctor was great. Just wish they hadn't been running so behind. But I will go back, worth giving practice a second chance.
Wonderful bed side manner. Just a nice man and happy to help get to the bottom of any health issue. This doctor loves what he does for a living. Passion shows.
He was thoughtful and thorough. I highly recommend him. His staff and medical assistance are very kind and professional as well.
The office staff were very pleasant and I felt very comfortable with Dr. DeFabritus.
He is very good.I highly recommend Dr DeFabritus.
I came to this office based on the reviews but I was disappointed by the office staff. The office hours say 8:30-4:30 but every time I tried to drop off a sample at 3:00, they were getting ready to leave. Also, very unprofessional as they spoke in a derogatory manner in front of me while I waited about personal issues. Never again.
He explains so you are able to understand. He treats you respectfully.
Professional, Courteous and Thorough. I would definitely recommend Dr. Defabritus for Kidney problems or just as a primary physician. "He's a good man, Jeffrey. And thorough."
pleasant and professional. Recommended.
Sort of a long wait in the office but the ladies at the front desk were very pleasant. I had lots of anxiety as I normally do in doctor's offices but he was very nice and everything was fine.
Dr. Fabritus was extremely kind, patient and funny. He thoroughly explained the procedure that I would undergo...and when I forgot the instructions he provided to me ..he patiently assisted me over the phone. There was no wait time in his office and he scheduled my procedure quickly and provided the results instantaneously. I was extremely pleased with the service I was provided.
I was asked to call for the results of a urine test and told which day to do so. I complied. Too bad I didn't receive a call back from the doctor or his office staff to give me the results which leaves me to be in wait or play telephone tag with a busy doctor while also running my own business where my availability is limited. Mind you, I'm having a urinary tract problem which I am trying to figure out so it doesn't escalate. This doctor apparently doesn't do uretha issues, if that is what the problem is. Perhaps the doctor isn't taking my issue seriously and really didn't understand that the results of my test are important to me so I can continue to do the process of elimination to find the root of my physical issue. Just for the record, I thought a nephrologist handled bladder, uretha and kidney issues. This doctor told me he thought I might need a urologist and that he would provide a referral after the test results are in. Next week I am out of town at a conference and I take my urinary tract physical discomfort and worry with me about prolonging handling the course of treatment. The lack of follow through on the urine test I am very dissatisfied with.
Excellent first impression. Methodical , a good listener and very precise.
The staff was very courteous and professional.The doctor was very clear and precise.And most of all extremely knowledgeable.
There was no wait time. Spent about 30 minutes talking about my health and answering all of my questions. He's patient and knowlegeble. Great experience.
relaxing & reading the available magazines.
Very good, however, the office did not have my appointment on record from Zocdoc.
I couldn't have asked for more from Dr. DeFabritus. He took his time to listen to me, fully discussed my blood work and talked me through the next steps. He even asked "what other questions do you have?" Never heard that before from a doc.
He was very thorough in all things important: asking questions, answering questions, explanations in layman terms, gave his undivided attention the entire time. His staff was very friendly, courteous and didn't make one feel as though you were a burden that they had to deal with. Highly recommend!
Knowledgable doctor, nice staff, less than 5 min wait, -- rare in NYC.
I did some research before I picked my new PCP and boy was I glad! He seems like a great doctor, really easy to talk to and very professional. Highly recommended.
