Very professional and listened to my concerns.
Professional and attentive. Made sure I left with all my questions answered
Dr. Petelin was helpful with getting my pre-employment physical and paperwork completed. Very professional and will continue use him if medical needs arise in the future. Staff was great as well !
My visit was great I didn’t mind the wait which by the way was a little long but that was only because patients were squeezed in, it happens anywhere so I was fine with it. I also know that he is thorough and listens to your concerns and comes up with a plan you are comfortable with. He’s a really good Dr
Dr. Petelin is a superb doctor with great bedside manner and technical expertise. I highly recommend him.
As always Dr. Petelin take time to listen to your concerns and make sure you have got answer to all your concerns before you leave. The nurse that do the lab work is excellent I have very difficult vessels that roles away but she got the blood directly and that’s unusual for me.
The doctor himself is very easy to talk to, guve great advice, and has wonderful staff.
Very professional. Office staff was lovely. I’m very happy I took my chances using this dr. He was thorough and top notch.
Great. Friendly. Professional. Fast.
Office staff were incredible--so kind and easygoing. Make you feel welcome from the start. The doctor was also very attentive and took the time to really listen to my symptoms. Unfortunately, he did not necessarily figure out what is going on with me, but seemed extremely knowledgeable nonetheless and did his best.
Very thorough and attentive!
It was great! Dr. Petelin is always professional and takes the time to answer all my questions.
Always a great visit. Everyone is very professional and makes me feel comfortable
He's great! So is the office staff!
Always a pleasure
Extremely informative and helpful. I was very pleased with my visit.
Dr Petelin is a very kind and very patient doctor. He klistened to all of my concerns and addressed all of my questions and made me feel very at ease.
This was my first time seeing Dr. Petelin. Between the staff and Dr. Petelin's beside manner it was a very welcoming and comfortable experience. Dr. Petelin was very knowledgeable and able to address all of my concerns. Happy to have him as my new primary care doctor.
A work in progress. If followed through,& Im listened to we will get a conclusion!
Very good, easy, efficient, and answered my questions
Dr. Petelin made me feel very comfortable during my visit. I was explained the details of my medical status and tests to be taken. It was a very pleasant visit.
Efficient, effective, empathetic.
My visit was as positive of a experience at the doctor that I've ever had. Super friendly and helpful staff (both at the desk and his medical support team) and I was very impressed by/appreciative of Dr. Petelin. My appointment was scheduled very late in the day on a Friday and the office was technically supposed to have already been closed by the time I was able to be seen. Even so, Dr. P was extremely knowledgeable, considerate, and personable and took the time to explain complicated medical terminology in a very simple and easy-to-understand way. He also made an effort to make sure I clearly understood what I needed to do next and what I should be anticipating in future visits (lots of times I feel as though Dr's assume you understand and then rush out without giving you a chance to ask for clarification). Would recommend and am relieved to be in good hands.
Dr. Petelin is very professional and very comprehensive with making sure everything is ok. He takes the time to explain what the results of blood work. Highly recommend.
It was a great visit. I needed travel vaccines for my trip to Thailand and Dr. Petelin seemed pretty comfortable providing them to me. The office was clean and the front desk attendants were very professional and attentive. Just wish everyone was a little more personable and a little less professional/serious. Other than that it was painless. I went there for a transaction and I got it.
He was certianly much more productive than other doctors I've seen in the past. I liked that he wanted to get down to bottom of whats wrong with me so he decided to take all the precautions and necessesary steps to do it. Whereas some doctors have just "guessed" and diagnosed me based off of a list of symptoms.
Dr. Petelin is attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. Conveniently-located and welcoming front desk and nurse team.
Dr. Petelin was AWESOME! He is professional, friendly, calming & thorough -- I would highly recommend him. In addition, I cannot begin to express my satisfaction with his staff as well. From the front desk to the nurse, each and every one of them was courteous, professional, and made my visit as comfortable as they possibly could. I was so very thankful for the excellent care I received that I will be making Dr. Petelin my Primary Care Dr.
Dr. Petelin was extremely thorough,attentive and very courteous! His office is very clean.His staff and Nurse practioner where very professional.Highly recommended!
Had my annual physical with Dr. Petelin. Only waited a few minutes in the waiting room. He was very professional. His office runs very efficiently and office staff is great. Had my labwork drawn right away after meeting with doctor. Overall visit only took about 35 minutes from when I entered. Great experience.
Courteous and professional - no wait time! Recommend.
It's reassuring to have a Primary Care Physician (PCP) you can rely on; more so, in fact, when that PCP is Dr. Petelin. He and his staff are always courteous, attentive, and efficient. I leave each visit in better health and with greater peace of mind.
Nice guy, seems to know his stuff.
Quick, knowledgeable, nice, listened to everything i said and considered my thoughts about my backpain
Dr. Petelin was very attentive, and listened to all my concerns.
Extremely detailed and professional!
Great doctor who genuinely cares about you and has superb diagnostic skills! Highly Recommended. Also never have to wait long.
I always feel better after visiting Dr. Petelin.
Dr. Petelin is awesome! He is very thorough and always adresses all of my concerns. I would definitely recommend him.
Dr. Petelin is very professional and always take the time to listen about your concerns. He also take the time to explain and make sure you understand fully before he leave the subject. Never feel stressed of time when i see him wich i can do at other doctors.
What a great visit! Office staff was very nice and easy to chat with. Doctor made plenty of time for me as I didn't feel rushed at all. I was very satisfied with the level of care and look forward to having Dr. Petelin as my primary care doctor.
My visit with Dr. Petelin was pleasant and efficient. His support staff are always helpful and cheerful. I'm glad I chose Dr. Petelin for my PCP.
Dr. Petelin was kind, professional, and patient. I was a bit stressed prior to the appointment. However, Dr. Petelin made me feel at ease and listened to my concerns regarding my health. He is now my primary care physician, and I whole heartedly recommend him and his services.
As usual Dr. Petelin take time to listen and explain. Can strongly recommend him.
Dr Petelin is a throw back to an ear of the type of doctor that practices medicine because he cares for people. He's very nice and is always looking out for his patients.
He was very patient when answering all my questions.
I had a pleasant visit. Staff were friendly and easy to talk to. I felt comfortable and safe.
Excellent staff and doctor!!!
Very professional and friendly!
This is the best doctor's office I've ever been to! It felt like my own private clinic. Staff were really nice, and Dr. Petelin really took the time to focus on my appointment.
Great! Very pro
All my needs were met.
The front desk staff are nice? I didn't have to wait at all. The office and room I was in was clean. The Dr took good care of me. I don't like to visit the Dr (then again who does) but Dr Petelin was nice, patient, and took the time to listen to my concern. I will keep him as my PCP.
The office was pretty dingy and the doctor didn't seem like he knew what he was doing. He brushed off all my concerns and didn't even seem like he was happy with the way my treatment went.
Had a nice visit at Dr. Petelin's office. Thorough, friendly, and hassle-free.
I walked in thinking I had a terminal infection, I left only needing two aspirin
Dr. Petelin was friendly and courteous, even though I was late to my appointment. Looking forward to utilizing him further for my healthcare needs.
Courteos and professional
Everything went very smoothly and professionally. Petelin was very attentive.
Very thorough and kind. What a pleasure. I feel so much better now that I feel like I'm in good hands
Super nice and friendly.
Dr. Petelin is wonderful! I highly recommend him.
The best doctor I've seen since I was a patient in the children's hospital!! I highly recommend Dr. Petelin
Fantastic! Very helpful and courteous.
He is very gentle and attentive. Al l staffs are friendly. Very pleasant visit.
Very efficient and helpful
Dr Andrew Petelin was great. He was very knowledgable and helpful. I highly recommend Dr Andrew Petelin and his staff.
The staff is very nice!
Great doctor and very considerate and knowledgeable. I came in during my lunch break and made it back to work on time. Staff is very friendly and attentive. I plan on making Dr. Petelin my primary care provider now as well.
My first visit with Dr. Petelin. He was very professional and took time to listen and answer any questions I had. The nurses that also run the front office were also very professional, helpful and friendly. The whole experience was very pleasant.
great staff great doctor great bedside manner he listens
Doctor Petelin is amazing! He's super knowledgeable and friendly. I wouldn't go anywhere else.
Dr. Petelin is awesome. Expert and kind.
Really appreciated his willingness to listen and also talk through things.
Prompt, courteous and efficient. Found my primary care physician.
This was my third visit with Dr. Petelin. He is very friendly and easy to speak with. His staff is also very friendly and there is never any wait time. High recommended!
The staff was friendly and helpful. the Dr. was personable and straightforward. Great experience.
Supposed to get a referral to another doctor. 3 weeks later and I am still waiting.
Hey was quick, personable, and professional. Not sure why people are complaining about him on here. It's not like he's your psychiatrist.
Everyone in the office was efficient and took the time to really understand what was going on. The nurse who I believe is a current med student, or maybe who had just graduated was the most considerate and thorough nurse I have ever dealt with. I would recommend Dr. Petelin to family and friends.
I went on a Wednesday morning and the office was empty. The wait wasn't long but it wasn't right away as the receptionist is the same person who does vitals. Dr. Petelin came out right away and addressed my concerns. I spent no more than 45 mins for my visit altogether (which is perfect for me) and I left feeling pleased.
I had a terrible visit with Dr. Petelin, it was my first one and I hoping to make him my PCP-- not any more! Dr. Petelin never shook my hand, at the start or end of our exam. Dr. Petelin almost never made eye contact with me, and was completely focused on asking questions from a list on his computer and putting my answers in. He volunteered answers or tried to approximate my symptoms as opposed to letting me describe what was wrong. Finally, and this was the worst of it all. I went in for an injured back/shoulder, when Dr. Petelin went to examine my back he forcefully pulled up my shirt, pushing my body-- I screamed in pain, remember I was going in for an injured shoulder. The WORST bedside manner I have ever experienced.
Dr. Petelin is very thorough with a keen sense of the importance of his work with the community and I would highly recommend him to anyone who appreciates a personal touch. His front line staff are among some of the best I have encountered with regards to finding a way to accommodate patients with a high degree of respect and integrity. It's great to find a doctor I trust and other professionals on staff that make me feel at ease about my health issues. In the past, I dreaded and avoided doctor visits, but after my first visit with Andrew, I knew I had found my Primary Care Provider! Four Stars!
Dr. Petelin was very thorough and kind. He was professional and prompt with treatment. The office was a little dirty, but the service is good.
He is very nice, professional and accurate. He made sure to make me feel comfortable during my visit and responded all my questions in a nice manner.
Dr. Petelin seem genuinely concerned and helpful. He researched alternatives treatments and made me feel optimistic about my diagnosis. Thank you!
Dr. Petelin is the best. Truly. In every way.
Straight and no fuzz with attentive front of house.
Thorough & informative
He's a great doctor. Very professional. Staff are super friendly.
Very helpful, kind, and everything was very fast!
Quick and efficent.
Excellent and pleasant Dr. Very thorough and took the time to explain our questions. Higly recommend.
My first appointment with Dr Andrew was awesome. He was very patient, efficient, and to the point. I highly recommend!
Doctor himself was very pleasant and helpful. Communicative. His medical assistant was the opposite. She didn't seem interested in telling me what was going on. Left me in the room after the exam was over (I was done and could leave) without saying a word, and went to the bathroom. What?!
Dr. Petelin has been a great GP for me. Thanks!
Front desk staff was warm and helpful it was easy to call and get f/u on results. Doctor was polite no complaints.
Always a pleasant experience.
A diamond in the rough in Siberia.
I was actually 30 mins late for my appointment but Dr. Petelin saw me anyway and had a instant answer to my problem.
Dr. Petelin was professional, speedy without being rushed, and attentive to my needs as a new patient. I will be going back to him.
Dr. Petelin and his staff were very prompt and thorough. They took great care with me and helped me in a professional manner. I highly reccomend!
Very professional. I was checked in quickly and the nurse is really nice. Also, Dr. Petelin was very nice and helpful. I'm glad I chose this doctor.
The doctor was very professional. He asked good questions and was thorough. His staff was also courteous and helpful. Altogether - a very positive experience and a good team.
1st appointment was amazing, Dr. Petelin was very knowledgable and worked right away on getting me what I needed. Making my 2nd appointment now. Office is small and perfect.
My visit at Dr. Petelin's office was very pleasant. Dr. Petelin and his medical assistant were very nice and caring,
Doctor was pleasant and quick, but did not seem very thorough. The doctor sat down with me and told me everything looked fine BEFORE I got my stats like my height and weight recorded, which seemed very strange. Also, I received an email telling me the reports on my blood work was ready, with no real explanations or followups from the office which was disheartening especially there was a slight abnormality in one of my stats. This doctor is very nice and seems fine if you know exactly what you are in there for or if you need a refill on medication that you have no questions about. However, I personally would be uncomfortable with making him my primary care physician who I would need to trust to help me make my decisions.
Dr. Petelin always explains all I need to know concerning my health concerns and medications I am taking. My anxieties are lowered because of Dr. Petelin's medical care and bed side manners.
he is the greatest
The office has really convenient hours, and is located right next to the subway. The nurses are fast and efficient (I hate needles, but didn't even feel it this time), and Dr. Petelin is very professional. I would definitely reccomend him.
Very attentive and respectable Doctor. makes you feel comfortable and treated.
Went for annual checkup. Quick efficient service. Labs were drawn on premesis and overall visit took only 35 minutes including lab draw.
The wait was never more then 5 minutes and Dr. Petelin is a great doctor.
He was polite and soft spoken and made you feel at ease
I was seen pretty much right away, but I also chose the first appointment of the day so I could go before work. Dr. Petelin is a bit brisk and rushed, but he is very professional, I just had a few questions to ask him and he didn't have time to spare for that. The nurse & receptionist were rude, but that's no different from anywhere else in NY. The office is really run down, but perhaps they're doing construction on it to make it look better, I thought I saw a note in the hall about that. I do like that this office has online test results.
Love the place and he a great doctor I'm so happy I found someone good
Always professional and quick
Great doctor. Great personality. Thorough, knowledgeable, and responsible.
He is hands down one of the best doctors I have met. He is courteous and professional while also being a bit personable. I would go back to this doctor.
Dr. Petelin is thorough, first doctor that checked out all my vitals in a very long time. I find Dr. Petelin to be good doctor
Dr. Petelin is sympathetic, knowledgeable, respectful, and efficient. I'm glad to have found him!
I was seen right away for my appointment. Dr. Petelin was kind and courteous. He answered all my questions thoroughly and addressed my concerns completely. I was very satisfied with my care. His nurse was very nice. I'm not a fan of needles, but she did a great job drawing blood. I barely noticed. I'll certainly be seeing Dr. Petelin again.
knowledge in his supposed field of expertise was lacking . He could not answer most of my questions or concerns .When he did offer an answer he relied on looking things up on the internet . Did not even care to examine an area of concern,Could not order the proper lab test :ordered a female test instead of for a male .A complete and utter waste of time .Pathetic excuse for an MD.
Great staff and very friendly. Was not much of a wait time and definitely recommend!
Showed up early and was showed in immediately. Dr. Petelin was concise and thorough. Definitely recommend if you're looking for a primary doctor and haven't found one in the city yet!
It was my first appointment with Dr. Petelin. He was thorough, informative, and courteous. I felt very comfortable with him and am glad that he is now my primary care physician. The office staff is friendly and efficient.
Always makes me feel comfortable and cared for.
Liked the doctor but not the area in which his office is located.
Had an annual physical with Dr. Petelin. He was very good. Polite, thorough, friendly. Took a detailed medical history, asked me a lot of questions, and documented all of my symptoms extensively. He was a bit serious, but given the nature of the job I suppose that makes sense. He did some extra testing for me because I was nervous about some of the symptoms I was having, so I really appreciate that. I have no complaints about him or the office in general.
Dr. Petelin was had read my file, was straight forward, professional. I'll follow up at the end of this month, so we'll see how it all works out and if my issues have been addressed. But for right now, first visit, I'm very pleased.
The doctor was very professional and had a calm, pleasing manner. I felt that he really cares about his patients. He even offered to call me and follow up about some lab tests.
The appointment was great. He listened well, didn't rush, was easy to talk to, and came up with a step by step diagnostic plan that I felt good about. Receptionist, who also drew blood, was great too. Recommend.
Dr. Petelin was very well informed, asked a lot of good, clear questions, and came up with a plan that made sense to me. Things you want in a doctor: precision, broad knowledge, and a desire to solve the problem. I think he demonstrated all three very well. I am still waiting for his office staff to set-up my online portal info so that I can acces my paperwork to take to my next doctor, but eh, no one's perfect.
Great experience overall!
I went in for pre-travel checkup and vaccines. Andrew was very helpful and had plenty of advice through personal travel experience. Will certainly return for any more help needed.
The doctor was great he very engaging and answered all my question in a very respectful manner.
Dr. Petelin was great! He saw me right away and was very thorough with his exam. He was very easy to talk to about what's going on and allowed me to ask a million questions. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a general practitioner!
Dr Petelin and his staff are great. Very courteous, informative, and made you feel like an important patient. I was able to get an appointment quickly using the app. Definitely recommend Dr Petelin.
He was supper great and took his time to ask me questions, I spent months with this pain but after my appointment and got my prescription, I feel way better, is a bit expensive tho for people without insurance other than that everything is perfect. Thank you Peterlin.
A kind, gentle demeanor. Smart and attentive.
Dr Petelin is a very caring doctor, a throwback to when doctors cared for their patients. His staff is equally as nice. They are very thorough and I felt very comfortable with Dr Petelin for any sickness that may arise.
Dr. Petelin & his staff were great! I definitely recommend him
It was very fast but concise. He called me the next day with follow up information to help me understand the results of some tests.
Dr Petelin was straight forward, efficient, communicative, and super nice.
He was kind, attentive, and efficient. The staff was also great.
Dr. Petelin is thorough, careful, efficient and knowledgeable. Office staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful.
I've got to the office earlier, didn't wait 10 minutes to get in. Everyone there was very nice, the doctor decided to do a blood test on the same day, I didn't wait. everything went good. I recommend.
Office isn't warm and comforting. Andrew assured me I would receive the results of my lab work in roughly a week's time. Nothing ever showed up.
Looking for a new doctor in the area. Office staff is friendly and welcoming and greeted me upon arrival. Dr. Petelin was nice and straight to the point. He made sure I was okay with him being my primary care doctor since I recently moved up to the area. He took his time answering questions and learning about my medical history. I did not feel rushed at all
Great. Professional. Courteous.
Andrew was efficient, well spoken. I may have needed someone a little more engaged but I have no complaint with the man.
The staff greeted me warmly today on my first visit. I so appreciated how communicative and swift they were in setting me up as a new patient. Dr. Petelin saw me right away, reviewed my chart thoroughly, and answered all of my questions in a friendly, precise and easy manner. I left in high spirits, because I felt so taken care of.
Dr. Petelin is so sweet, very attentive and laid back. They have every resource possible right there in office, and provide access to your results via Internet, which is super convenient.
Doctor and his staff are friendly and very professional. This was my first visit but will be returning!
A wonderful doctor with a great supporting staff. I look forward to seeing Dr. Petelin with my medical concerns, as I'm always treated with the utmost care and concern regarding my health issues.
Fine for a one-off appointment, but I'd want a more thorough and attentive interaction if this were my permanent doctor.
Dr. Petelin is very kind and professional. I'm so glad I found him.
I was looking for an Infectious Disease Specialist and Dr. Petelin was very thorough and knowledgeable in his diagnosis and recommendations for my next steps in treatment.
I thought the visit went great. Dr. Petelin answered all my questions and his friendly staff performed all the necessary blood tests.
Great visit - the doctor was very friendly and stuff was great as well. I filled out my paperwork before I got there and was seen within a few minutes of arriving. The office also provides you with access to an online portal where you can see all lab work results in full detail which is incredibly convenient.
Great office and great doctor !!
It was a good experience and I've already recommended him to someone.
There billing department was terrible. I have been dealing with this for months now and no one in the office will answer the phone. Terrible bedside manner. DEFINITELY wouldn't go to him again. When I was there, 3 or 4 people were in the office complaining about billing problems as well. I bet they are scamming or doing something shady.
Meh. He seemed indifferent to seeing me and to giving any type of examination other than a quick look. Maybe he is a good doctor with an indifferent bedside manner.
Dr. Petelin was great. He did a thorough physical and followed up with test results promptly. I'd highly recommend him.
Dr. Petelin is very professional and obviously very knowledgeable. I definitely recommend him.
Easy and quick
Dr. Petelin was patient, efficient, and likable.
I had a 8am appointment so I was the first patient. Dr. Petelin saw me right away after I filled out the initial paper work. He was very helpful and answered all my questions. He was carrying as well. I would recommend him. Location is a bit far from where I live so it would be difficult to see him as a general doctor but I went to see him for his opinion as an infectious disease Specialist.
The Doctor was dismissive of my issues. I felt rushed. No bedside manner whatsoever. The girl working the front desk was nice and attentive. I will NEVER see this Doctor again.
The doctors office was very clean and the staff was very thorough yet quick with my appointment. I really felt like they listened to my questions. I would highly recommend it.
Very professional and knowledgeable, great friendly bedside manner and took his time explaining everything.. Highly recommended!
Dr. Petelin was very helpful and explained everything thoroughly.
I felt very well informed and my immediate concerns were looked after.
Great doctor and staff. Dr. Petelin was nice, but still professional, thorough, and seemed to both have genuine care about his patients and enjoy his job. His staff was excellent as well, very nice and efficient and good at their jobs.
Awesome fast check ups
He took the time to answer all of my questions in a clear and friendly way.
Great doctor who takes his time to listen to his patients.
Dr. Petelin is great. He's to the point while still being friendly. He's helpful and knowledgeable. I've gone in for a physical and he was great, and I recently just got vaccines for an international trip and he was thorough to make sure I had everything I needed to have a healthy safe trip in terms of vaccines and medications needed etc. I don't live near his office anymore but it's worth going out of my way to see him. He's really a wonderful doctor!
Completely apathetic and unhelpful. Didn't seem to have answers or suggestions for any of my problems.
The doctor and the office stuff were very nice and professional.
The Doctor is ok but i would consider looking for better options in the future. He is wooden and unable to communicate much emotion. He did listen but I don't think it mattered too much to him. He also said that two different HIV medications were the exact same thing. I'm not sure i can trust him with my long term HIV care. The nurse / secretary was pretty nice that is the plus, also was seen pretty quickly.
Thorough and pleasant
Very efficient operation. MD is very knowledgeable.
Great and professional.
Very thorough and polite doctor. Staff was also very nice and helpful.
Dr. Petelin was very nice and informational. He was able to answer my questions succinctly.
Good doctor , communication is easy
Very friendly, professional and thorough.
Great as usual.
I am always treated with patience and respect. Dr. Petelin makes sure I understand my medicines' possible reactions and what I should do. He always stays in touch with me by phone if anything I need to know shows up with my blood work. I always feel well taken care of.
Great staff, very professional -- answered all of my questions with my current situation in mind.
After vetting several doctors and reading reviews, I decided to visit Dr. Petelin as my GP. His office staff was highly responsive and knowledgeable when making an appointment and upon arrival. Dr. Petelin's office has a professional, boutique feel. Upon meeting him, I instantly felt at ease. He welcomed my questions, was friendly and had a warm demeanor. Look forward to next year's check-up!
He laughed at my concerns. It was creepy. And uninformative. Imagine going to him in a panic and then wasting time getting to an appointment with him and him scoffing at your concerns or at possible solutions you have tried to figure out on your own, and then him not offering any in return.
very through, nice quiet office. mellow atmosphere
As usual a pleasant visit he was patient and make sure he answered all my questions and concerns
Punctual, approachable, and took the time to provide context and answer my questions.
He was texting while talking with me
He was professional, thorough, and kind as was his staff.
They were polite and professional. Highly recommend.
Doctor ordered routine lab tests to try and identify source of illness. When tests failed to return a diagnosis of issue, Dr. Petelin seemed ready to give up and hand me off to a different doctor without trying anything to further identify the issue. Dr. Petelin also said his office would set up appt. with new doctor, which his office never did.
Very efficient, very professional. I would go back, and I would recommend others see him too.
Dr. Petelin was punctual, efficient, and helpful with all medical questions and needs that I had as a new resident in the city. Will be going back.
This was my first visit to see Dr. Petelin. It was a breeze to make the apt. online yesterday for his first apt. of the day. The Dr. was quite pleasant. He focused on the reason for my visit. I had two issues and we covered them methodically. As flu shots just arrived he offered me one which saved me a future visit. I have designated the Dr. as my primary care Dr. for the future.
He was the best doctor I have seen from this hospital , so nice and understanding. Wait time was 5 min or less . Just wonderful .
I could never recommend a Doctor who doesn't listen to what you have to say and just fires clinics questions at you from a computer screen. Could not offer any medical perspectives or my ailment.
Excellent experience. Very knowledgable and easy to talk to.
Dr Petelin was thorough and personable. My first experience at this office was a positive one. I would recommend it to others.
Very professional, thorough, and helpful.
I was pleased with my visit to Dr. Petelin's office. I found him to be easy to work with.
Good like always... Nice to have the patient portal.
Dr Petelin was very knowledgeable and helpful. He explained the treatment in detail and went extra mile to ensure good results. I highly recommend Dr Petelin.
I wanted him to be more thorough as he is a specialist.
Everything was fine except that the nurse/lady at the desk was not very responsive and kept me waiting for a while before giving me my bill, because she though I was waiting on the Dr. for something even though he came out to hand me the documents I needed and wished me safe travels (a clear indication that the visit was over).
Went in for an annual checkup. First time there, so filled out all my paperwork and was seen right away. Asked detail questioned about my medical history with the medical staff and then had my physical and blood work done.
It was my first visit and I was extremely impressed with the staff & how polite they are, the cleanliness of the office. The doctor is warming and thorough which I like doesn't rush the visit and explains to you as he checking you. I would definitely recommend my family to see him!!
Dr. Petelin is very kind, exceptionally knowledgeable and he takes time to explain everything you may have questions about. Very approachable!
Dr. Petelin himself was great. Efficient, straight forward, and nice. The front desk lady on the other hand was irritated, hasty, and did not set up a pleasant atmosphere to be in. Unfortunate that she is the first impression the office has to have.
very through, nice office, no wait time
The appointment felt rushed and I wasn't satisfied with how in depth my issue was investigated.
My experience with Dr Petelin was okay. The downside with my experience was with the receptionist. They were very unprofessional and poor customer service. They had promised to handle some changes on the end of business day but did not do it. When confronted the next day it was greeted with an attitude and an employee who does not want to do their job.
He was at the front desk to greet me within a minute of my arrival to my appointment. It apeared that they were short staffed so he took care of the vitals and background so it made it easy to go into the details of my visit. Overall, I am pleased with his manner in working up my appointment and look forward to working together going forward.
Andrew is an awesome doctor. It's nice to know you can talk to your doctor about anything without reservation.
Dr. Petelin was both professional and personable; I highly recommend him.
Dr. Petelin was nice enough, but his assistant was very curt and barely spoke to me. I felt like I was inconveniencing her - I know it's Monday morning but geez.
Dr. Petelin and his team are great. I arrived a few minutes late, yet they were accommodating and quick as always. While I originally came to Dr. Petelin because his office was a block from my apartment, I've since moved, and it's worth the trek across town to see a doctor I like and trust. I recommend this doctor enthusiastically.
There was some initial confusion when the front desk attendant was unable to find my ZocDoc appointment but she managed to clear everything up nice and quickly. My time spent in the waiting room was shockingly brief. Upon first impression, Dr. Petelin was professional, kind, and thorough. He seemed quite knowledgable about all of the existing conditions and prescriptions that I mentioned to him. He admitted that he was not particularly busy that morning so he even spent a bit of extra time with me. I was very pleased with my first visit.
Dr. Petelin was fine but he didn't do anything much and didn't try to connect or ask the questions I was expecting (I had to tell him). The staffs were very efficient and helpful, especially Pamela was exceptional.
Very professional, thorough and no wait!
Friendly Office, Clean, And very timely.
everything you coukd want
everything was great, and exactly what I was expecting.!
A young, confident, growing practice.
Efficient and proficient as always...
Dr Petelin was nice enough, but was clearly distracted and seemed to rush me through my appointment. No wait time, which is great, but maybe spent 2 minutes with me, mostly asking questions that I answered on my history.
Went to Dr. Petelin for my annual physical. He listened to all of my questions. Very nice, helpful and professional.
The Dr. was very pleasant and I didn't feel rushed. I felt confident in his prescriptions for treatment. Office staff pleasant
Short wait, Dr. Andrew was great, his assistant was a little to uncaring, she did what she had to do, but her manner wasn't the best but she did the job.
Generous in time, spirit and ability. Made me feel right at ease, and prescribed me medicine that made my cough much more tolerable. Only had one visit with him so far, but he's one of the better physicians I've seen in my 8+ years of living in NYC.
Great very pleasant
Great visit and highly recommend him to anyone and very helpful as well.
Dr Petelin is always thorough and efficient.
The Dr. is observant, polite, and gentle. He quickly examines his patients and knows his stuff. I'm shocked that his waiting room is not filled, but also glad. He's NYC's best kept medical secret.
Pleasant. Personable and professional. Easy going manner...just what you want in a doc.
Always a great visit (even when the reason to go isn't). Dr. Petelin is professional, thorough, and his office runs well. I went to a concierge practice for years, but while I liked the creature comforts, I missed the consistency of a doctor who got to know me. I can see Dr. Petelin with the convenience of ZocDoc scheduling, get in and out quickly, and he answers every question. I used to live near his office- but it's worth the schlep to see a doctor I like so much.
Great experience. Doctor Petelin was thorough but I was out of there pretty quickly. Overall great experience!
He was great. I was seen promptly and my issue was resolved.
Helpful, concise, and thorough.
I always enjoy seeing Dr. Petelin. He makes seeing the doctor fun.
Dr.Petelin was great. Friendly, patient and thorough. I'd recommend him.
Dr. Petelin is straight to point and a great listener. Highly recommended. Staff here are also extremely helpful.
A Doctor who listen and knows what he is talking abou
Dr. Petelin is: amiable, professional, and efficient. I never have to wait long at his appointments; and, although the appointments are usually brief, he is attentive and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Dr. Petelin as a good primary care physician. However, on several occasions, I have had difficulty obtaining correct and timely referrals from the staff. So, I would recommend patience and persistence with that process.
Dr . Petelin was very thorough . He was accurate in his exam .I really appreciate him and how he handles himself .
Didn't seem to care about patients well being. Appears very standoffish.
Quick and no frills.
Andrew was very informative. His assistants were wonderful at accommodation. Even thought it's a small environment, it's associated with Beth israel and you're in and out. THANK YOU DR!
Overall great visit, the staff were very friendly and doctor was great!
Highly knowledgeable and thorough in his evaluation. Exemplary communicator. Patient in discussion.
My appointment with Dr. Petelin was okay. The appointment consisted of Dr. Petelin reading off a list of symptoms from his computer, entering in my repsonses, and reading me the result. I had come in because I didn't think I was using the right medication which an urgent care facility had prescribed. Dr. Petelin agreed with the original diagnosis, and only after I mentioned what I had also read online, did he then agree with me after checking his online database. Dr. Petelin was polite, but didn't really seem too involved with what was going on with me. I'd rather see a doctor that treats me like a person, rather than a list of symptoms, and for that reason I would probably not recommend. I can go through the same checklist on google by myself.
I actually enjoyed it. Great office, very good experience.
He's a man of few words. Some people might not like that, but I do. I don't want someone chatting me up while they're playing with my toys. Just check it and move on. A+ Dr Petelin
Dr Patelin was helpful, knowledgeable, and caring. I highly recommend him.
The nerse's and doctor were very profesional and very friendly. Made me feel at ease from the moment I arived
Dr Petelin was thorough and thoughtful.
There's always plenty of slots to choose from. I never have to wait in the office. And the doctor is very friendly and efficient.
He's the best!! Very concerning doctor and very caring and explains everything to you!! /the best bedside manners.
Conveniently located, I was able to be in and out in under 40 minutes total. The front of the office staff were helpful and quick. I was taken right in for the prelims and then was walked into another room where Dr. Petelin was waiting to see me! He was efficient but took his time with me. I was able to get a few referrals for ongoing issues and asked advice starting a new med. He was very nice and had a great bedside manner. I was then whisked into another room for a blood draw and was out the door. My test results came in the following day, but was not able to call the doctor back for a couple of days. Dr. Petelin explained the results and next steps. I have never had a doctor handle that him/herself.
I look forward to seeing Dr Petelin. He's professional and thorough, but friendly as well. His staff found my vein for my bloodwork on the first try this time! Much better!
I was comfortable with Dr. Petelin’s demeanor and professionalism. He explained the medical treatment and possible side effects of medication. Everything worked out splendidly.
Dr. Petelin is fine if you are in the field or knowledgeable of your conditions. I do not feel well informed when leaving his office. I may not know the questions to ask, but when i call back I am greeted by an unprofessional receptionist and still don't feel comfortable with the experience.
This is the second time I was at Dr. Petelin's office and both times I was seen right away, the staff was courteous and the Dr. really took the time to speak with me, ask the right questions and explain the diagnosis.
i actually enjoyed my dr visit today - i hope he does not get a crowd of new pts because of this review - because i was seen right away - he and pamela took such great care of me i was amazed - i am most comfortable and last week i was so frustrated about my health insurances and health care - now i am sighing relieve! thanks andrew and pamela - wonderful
Had a quick visit that was direct and easy. This was my first time with Dr. Petelin and I felt comfortable even though I had to discuss some female specific patients. Glad I chose him as my PCP. Some advice: If you have a 1PM appointment, the office is closed from 12-1 for lunch so don't arrive any earlier than 12:45
Dr .Petelin is professional and thorough. Takes enough time to not make you feel rushed. He also ensures that you fully understand everything and your medical options are presented to you in a way you can understand.
The location is not fancy, and the office is not posh, but everyone I dealt with there was relaxed and likable. And you can't beat the wait time (i.e. zero).
Doctor prescribed an antibiotic out of my insurance and then claimed he had never heard feedback from any other patients that it was expensive. I don't think so.
Very professional and thorough
He was a good attentive doctor. He makes sure what illness is bothering you, he would take care of it.
Professional and to the point. Will go back.
Dr. Petelin and his staff are excellent and I would highly recommend them. I was seen right away. Dr. Petelin was very attentive and knowledgable.
This doctor gave me attitude. Like doctors of yesteryear, he has a "doctor knows all" mentality, and refuses to listen to patients in any meaningful way. Beware of a clinician who views his ego as the most important end goal to any discussion. He's gotta be right!
Extremely fast, no wait time whatsoever.
His staff was very welcoming, I think he appropriately approached my visit reason, and took the necessary steps to ensure I resolved my condition. As well as being more safe then sorry and checking for other conditions to get more out of my visit then a simple diagnosis, script and see ya later.
Answered questions well, concise and polite.
Overall good. Nurses were a little impersonal but on the whole, everyone was friendly and got me in and out.
The whole team was very courteous, prompt, attentive and professional. Im very satisfied, and happy to have found this little oasis of an office.
Dr Petelin was really easy to talk to and made me feel at ease.
Dr.Petelin lived up to my expectations. The service at his office was excellent. Dr. Petelin was polite and considerate and very precise in his examination. The attendant on his office was excellent as well.
Excellent professional and through
Very nice and professional. Would recommend to anyone in the neighborhood.
Knowledgeable...Didn't feel rushed...
He was both professional and personable. His examination was comprehensive and informative. Very helpful with referrals. His office staff were courteous and helpful. Will return in a few weeks for a follow up visit.
I received all of my inoculations and vaccinations as requested promptly and painlessly. Doctor Petelin is great!
I think it went great. It was very quick, no waiting or anything. He was very observant and made sure he got all details necessary.
Very professional and helped go through my symptoms and did blood test on the spot.
The doctor was brief and direct, the staff was helpful while I was there but difficult over the phone.
The wait time wasn't long at all, I was called by the Dr. 5 minutes after I walked in. Dr. Petelin was polite, a bit funny but in the non noticeable way, as well as straight to the point. Will definitely recommend to my friends and family.
He was very thorough and listened while taking notes
thorough and thoughtful. will lock him in as my PCP
My visit with Andrew was great. He knew his stuff (of course, very important) and he was also very attentive. As a patient, it's always nice to feel heard and to not have to repeat yourself. I visited his practice after a trip to India resulted in me bringing home an unexpected souvenir--an infectious stomach bug. He helped make the right diagnosis, and followed up several times throughout the next two weeks to check on my condition and to update me as various test results came in. I obviously hope I don't pick up another exotic infectious disease, but if I do, I'll definitely be visiting Andrew again. Thanks so much for the excellent care!
Very knowledgable and took time to answer all of my questions. ????
Fast and professional
As always, Dr. Petelin was great. Efficient, friendly and professional.
Doctor Petelin was as proficient and professional as I was hoping as my new Primary Care Physician. I think I'm going to be happy with my decision to select him as my PCP. I hope his staff doesn't have the same problem they had today drawing blood for my labwork, everytime I go. Unable to get it, now I have to venture out again tomorrow to go to the hospital lab for them to find my blood.
Great first visit. The clinic was very calming and cool. The staff and doctor listened and made me feel valued. I had a lot of questions and they were very good with me. I just switched to here and I know I made the right choice.
Very informative and nice experience
would definetly see him again he seems very professional and exacting
Dr. Petelin was thorough and took time to explain things and answer my many questions.
Very efficient and straightforward. Professional staff all around.
I had throat pain. He prescribed a gargle. Called him two days later to let him know that it was feeling worse. He said give it a few more days. I went to see another doctor that told me I had an throat infection.
Dr. Petelin is thorough and logical in his approach, running any tests to help point to a diagnosis. He is quick to follow up with results and will refer you to a specialist if he comes up empty handed. He's doing his job, as far as I'm concerned.
Great, relaxed atmosphere. The Doctor & Staff were friendly, welcoming, & helpful.
Excellent doctor highly recommended
I was more than pleased with my recent office visit. Having not seen a primary care physician in a number of years I was grateful to find an understanding and caring person in Dr. Petelin to resume my health care regimen. He was both thorough and patient and explained everything in a way that was easy to understand. I would highly recommend Dr. Petelin to anyone.
This was my first appointment with Dr.Petelin. He was very patient and listened to my concerns. Professional and caring. I know I made the right choice in Doctors. Would definitely recommend him to others.
a real doc
Dr Petelin was pleasant and through. He made me feel very comfortable and relaxed .He asked pertinent questions around my health and family health history . He is also a good listener as well. I could tell he was a caring human being with a calm demeanor . Dr Petelin receptionist who took care of me appeared kind and gentle, very pleasant young lady ….Thank you :) !!
Dr. Petelin is great. Friendly and competent office staff, virtually no wait, and a patient and thorough exam. With an office a block from my house, I'm very glad to have found Dr. Petelin.
Dr. Petelin was really great. He answered my questions, was friendly and very professional. The office is well located and pretty. It was only my first visit but I already feel comfortable to have him as my primary doctor. The staff was very friendly and took care of all the check-in process really quick while always making me feel welcome. I definitely recommend him.
very happy with this doctor
It was excellent! Very informative. I will recommended.
good service. nice guy.
Dr Petelin is the best, highly recommend him have been seeing him consistently for over a year.
Super professional, super efficient. Very polite staff.
Excellent in every way imaginable. Very friendly and helpful desk staff and great doctor. Exceeded all expectations. Great PCP.
Very courteous and didn't feel rushed during appointment. Was seen right on time which was really great.
This review is from 3 years ago. The originally review I wrote was not approved by Zocdoc. All I can say is that I was not listened to and my requests were ignored even though the condition I went in for I have been dealing with all my life. Instead of listening to me, Dr. Petelin searched google images for the condition I had. What??? I think I know what my own illness is. This condition ended up so badly, it turned into a very series, life threatening condition and I eventually had to go to the ER for it. Had I been listened to originally and given the medicine I knew I needed, all of this could have been prevented. Please go to a doctor who will listen to your needs and want and will take you seriously. Do not go to Dr. Petelin if you have a series condition or problem and need a real treatment.
Speedy, competent service. I will go back.
