Verified Patient Reviews
Doctor's assistant and many employees at the front desk were subpar: unnhelpful and rude. Doctor was nice and straight forward, maybe casual.
The doctor is great. I very much appreciate his direct talk and not recommending certain procedures and medication because it is mostly profit making but genially helping. I felt comfortable talking to him about some really sensitive topics. So that helped a lot! However, the office has a lot of work to do. I waited for 40 minutes until they decided to give me some paperwork to fill out, nurses/assistants would come in and not explain why and how certain things should be done. I felt like nobody I telling me anything and at some point I was not sure what I was waiting for. The whole appointment took three hours. However, the doctor is wonderful and could not recommend him more.
Doctor Borcich is very knowledgeable professional. He took time to answer all my questions and concerns. I highly recommend him
Extremely thorough, caring and helpful. He really listened and gave me lots of information. Excellent experience
Dr. Borcich is a really nice guy. He's straight and to the point and made me feel comfortable dealing with some uncomfortable issues. I would recommend him to my friends.
Dr. Borcich was warm, friendly, easy to understand and listened to all everything I had to say. It is sometimes awkward talking about gastrointestinal issues, but he was very professional yet easy going at the same time.
waiting time is way beyond my understanding
Really thorough consulting; Patient for explaining everything to me; Great communication skill.
Great doctor. I appreciated the time that he took to understand my symptoms and how it relates to a concurrent condition. He is very experienced in his field and imparts confidence in the diagnosis by taking the time to communicate how he came to the decision.
Dr. Borcich was very professional, took his time with my mother, asked questions and gave his professional opinion. I would recommend him
Dr. Borcich spent a great deal of time listening and speaking to me about my visit. He was thorough and polite, and made it seem like I was his only patient. Really good experience.
He is personable, professional, knowledgeable, articulate, and easy to tall to. His staff was helpful and sweet. Overall a great experience.
Though the staff was friendly, they were not competent. Two women required three tries to take my blood. I was in the office for 2 hours and 45 minutes, including the initial wait time.
I greatly appreciated Dr. Borcich's help. I am still a little confused that he is on the website for my insurance but said he was not actually able to treat me because my insurance did not match with his practice. He did help though in setting me up with a doctor to get looked after which I thought was tremendously kind of him. I unfortunately did not particularly like the doctor he sent me to but nonetheless am happy with the reference on short notice. Dr. Borcich is the first doctor in a long time that had great bedside manners and was very personal and approachable. He actually examined my condition with care and detail which I have not seen in a while. Thank you for your help.
Great doctor - took the time to understand everything, interpret and explain recommendations. Mentioned several studies/data and was very thoughtful.
Dr. Borcich is the best doctor I have ever seen. He is knowledgeable and displays genuine concern. He goes beyond the call of duty and is exemplary of what a doctor should be.
I had an all around positive interaction with Dr. Borcich and his staff. I have seen him four times and each time I was promptly seen, treated well and efficiently. He is a very nice attentive doctor, who was available by phone for issues between appointments and even called to check in on me. He was friendly and comforting, as I was trying to deal with a newly diagnosed issue and feeling unsure. I know before I went I read that the office kept people waiting but I never have had to wait more than 5-10 minutes before I was taken into a medical room. I am grateful for Zocdoc for connecting me to such a great doctor.
Wait time was quite long, however I was 20 mins late to the office, so that might have contributed
I'm sure Dr. Borcich is a good Dr. as he had a good bedside manner. However, I had blood work done and was told that the results would be back by the middle of the following week. I called to get my results and was advised that the dr would call me back. It took a total of 4 calls over 4 1/2 weeks to get the results mailed to me. It took him another week to actually call me, in which he left a rambling voice message asking if I had gotten his last message. There was no message, he just didn't follow up with me. Completely unorganized practice. He never billed my insurance company either!!
Dr. Borcich was recommended to my aunt by another doctor I know. I will say that he is the best internist out there. He is an amazing doctor and person and he may have just saved my aunt's life by getting us to the right place given the difficult situation we are facing at the moment. He is truly a very helpful and caring doctor and person. five plus stars for him. The only thing and I hate to have to include it here (but I will to suggest improvement in the office staff) is the disorganization in administration. The office is very cluttered, and staff is all over the place. When we got there, they didn't even know we had an appointment and the doctor was clear he didn't even know his schedule started at 8:30 am which was the time of our appointment. I work in the medical field and I know Dr. Borcich deserves a much better, much more professional administrative and management team. The front desk staff (all of them) are awful and don't know what they're doing. Apart from that, Dr. Borcich is worth the patience and understanding because he is the best! A special thank you to him personally for being a true and wonderful healthcare professional.
Very professional and actually spends time to understand symptoms instead of rushing to judgment.
Friendly efficient office staff. Dr. Borcich was upbeat, kind and very informative. Located in one of New York's nicest buildings.
He was very and listened very intently to my issues. He seemed knowlledgable and friendly. The only downside to my visit was that I was the first patient of the day and I waited a long time to be seen. It seems the receptionist made an error and didn't mark my appointment. This isn't really his fault though, and he was apologetic. Hopefully this won't happen again for my next visit. Otherwise he was great!
everybody was extremely helpful. My appointment did not feel rushed. Dr. Borcich is thoughtful and careful. I thank him and his staff for making me feel comfortable and listened to,
From the onset I felt like I could trust him and that he cared about my well being. The staff was very professional and caring as well. I feel that I am in great hands.
Dr. Borcich is very knowledgeable, caring and thorough. He gives you as much time as you need at your appt. This sometimes impacts wait time, but I am happy to wait knowing I will have the time and attention I require to fully address my health concerns! He is very honest and upfront. He is involved in a lot of research and really makes you feel as if you are part of the decision and treatment process. He and his office are fully committed and dedicated to ensuring your health insurance company grants you the care and medications necessary.
Staff is very irresponsible and inefficient. They always place you on hold and ask to call you back but never do. When you ask that something be done on your behalf (which by the way is why they get paid to sit there and why i pay high insurance rates), they are quick to say "sure" and hang up but nothing ever gets done. The doctor himself is good, it's just the people representing him are awful at their jobs. I expressed my concern to one of his staff (Jenny) who kept lying to me and saying she'll call me back but never does and all she did was say "okay" and hang up on me. I would recommend doctor Borcich just not his office staff.
Great Doctor. Staff was very nice. Doctor took a lot of time to explain options.
My visit was a joke. I waited over an hour for the doctor to come in and then I was asked to go into the doctor's office and talk to him on the phone while he was walking into the office. If I wanted to talk to the doctor over the phone I would have just called vs. paying a co-pay fee to see him. When he finally came to the office an hour later I spoke with him for a total of 10 minutes. Anytime you call the office afterwards they are on lunch and don't pick up the phone from 12:30-1:30 and then close the office at 3 PM so they basically are never working. would NEVER recommend this doctor to anyone ... you are better off reading web MD than going to him.
Very thorough and professional. Thank you!
Made me feel very comfortable. Seemed to care. Liked him very much.
I arrived at the office 30 minutes prior to my appointment, allowing my to have enough time to fill out any paper work. For the first time in months, I felt like I was finally in the right place. I waited a little bit to see the doctor, but when the moment came, I was surprised to see a doctor who actually took his time with me, he made me feel like I was in good hands and that he knew what hes doing.
very patient and caring and listens
Very knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. Very good physician
Excellent doctor. He took the time to give me a full examination and listened intently to all concerns and gave helpful feedback. Nurses were very good as well.
1-Maybe it was just my experience but Ive seen him twice now, once for an office appointment and once for a procedure, both times I waited over an hour to see him. 2-I just didn't feel comfortable asking him questions, I felt rushed and he felt condescending. I think he's a good doctor and will do the job competently but at the end of the day, Id like to feel comfortable talking about one of the most important things, my health.
The doctor is okay but during my visit his staff interrupted us about 5 times. Office is a bit too chaotic.
If going to the doctor can ever be a great visit this was.
Really great doctor, took the time to listen to everything I had to say. My only complaint was the wait, but it was ultimately worth it.
Very personable, seemed to ask a lot of questions and really consider how they could lead to a certain result. Felt the examination was professional and thorough. Would recommend.
Highly informative. Doctor evidenced sincere interest in me as an individual and was very generous with the time he spent exploring the issues I presented.
Dr. Borcich is an unusually thoughtful doctor who gives patients all the time they need. Judging by my experience, that means you may wait past your appointment time, but when he sees you he will give you his full time and attention.
He's s a great doctor, very pleasant, personable and professional. I highly recommend him.
He is a great doctor.
Although the wait was a bit long (this is due to the shared office space rather than the doctor I believe), my appt. with Dr. Borcich was definitely worth the wait. He was willing to take the time to explain things to me and has a very kind disposition. He seems to have a very integral understanding of gastroenterology and was able to help me a lot.
I liked Dr. Borcich very much. As a new patient he took the time to ask questions about my medical history. He listened to me with interest when I spoke. His demeanor was professional yet friendly and I felt that he was a confident doctor who would care for my medical needs. I felt reassured and would recommend him to anyone.
I think Dr. Borchich really tries to give an accurate diagnosis. I did not felt rush during the appt which is a pleasant change for a doctor's visit. My complaint resides in the fact that he sees multiple patients at once. My appt lasted more than an hour, more than half of which was dedicated to waiting for him to be done with other patients. My last gripe with this doctor is that I am still waiting for my lab results which have been in for more than 2 weeks. Every time I call, he is unavailable and I am always told that I will get a call back. This is a nightmare for a patient who feels unease about his/her health. Overall, I do enjoy the staff that works there, but I think the doctor should try to be more responsive to reasonable requests such as delivering lab results.
He took the time to understand my history and make decisions that were best for me. I would highly reccommend him to anyone !
He is extremely professional, kind and paid careful attention to my health situation. After visiting other doctors for more than twenty years I finally felt that I found the right doctor. I more than highly recommend him to everyone. I felt so comfortable with him that I wanted to stay a bit longer. He is simple the best medical doctor I've ever met in my life.
Had a Colonoscopy and it went as well as one goes the doctor was very detailed in explaining the results of the procedure. Did not feel the same about some of the staff the young woman who took my insurance info was somewhat dismissive when I attempted to explain coverage and therefore made a mistake in charging me incorrectly that was later corrected. Other than that everyone was really good.
