Dr. Degenhardt took the time to walk through my blood work in very detailed manner, and answered any questions I had. He also made suggestions on my diet change based on my food log, finding ways to accommodate my cuisine preference. I like the fact that he prefers my own attempt at diet change first before jumping to changing my medication.

Dr. Degenhardt is one of the best primary care physicians I've ever had. I so much appreciate his focus on preventative healthcare, and the fact that he is trained as both a Western doctor, and in Eastern medicine (acupuncture, for example) as well. He brings the best of both approaches to his practice and I am healthier as a result.

Front desk could be more welcoming...otherwise: Dr Degenhardt is wonderful! He takes the time to understand your concerns and really asks the right questions to get to the bottom of things. I really appreciate his natural approach to medicine as well - instead of putting me on more medication, he's helped me get off a few prescriptions instead. He's excellent!

Dr. Degenhardt was extremely knowledgeable and thorough. Even though I only went in for a travel vaccine, he took more time to learn my medical history than either my primary care physician or my gynecologist ever have. Frankly, he was also more helpful. Would definitely recommend.

I went in looking for a new physician, saw some good reviews on this ZocDocs for Dr. Aran. I was excited that there's a sports medicine and holistic element to the office. However I really had an unwelcoming experience..... the front desk was typical NY, preoccupied and was as un-warming as the waiting area. The Dr was more then 30 mins late (already at 11:30am). I needed a physical, haven't seen a dr in over a year. Found it amusing that he asked me what my height and weight are for his notes, instead of accurately obtaining it. He inquired about my sexual orientation only to go on a really unwarranted descriptive rant about how chlamydia and gonorrhea can be everywhere. All in all, he seemed cocky and a bit full of himself. He didn't seem thorough considering I was a new patient. I would not recommend or go back.

I've seen Dr Degenhardt several times now and on each visit he's been very thorough, genuinely listened and then clearly explained and justified his thoughts and advice. His questions & treatment advice has always focussed on lifestyle first, and medicating last, which I have found really welcome & refreshing for the US. The front desk can be busy (it's Manhattan!) but I've found the team friendly, efficient and to have a great attitude.

I was in and out of there so fast! Aran was so, so knowledgeable about the necessary vaccines I'd need for the trip I was taking. He made sure I was well aware of what I needed, but didn't bother with anything I didn't. I also usually panic to an incredible degree when getting shots, but he cleverly distracted me by asking me questions about my trip while injecting so I didn't focus on it at all. It was really great.

As an athletic person who is constantly exposing myself to potential sports related injuries, having Dr. Degenhardt as my primary care is the best medical decision I've ever made. His approach to all of his treatments are highly practical while always airing on the side of conservatism. He is extremely thorough in his explanations and openly discusses his reasoning for a diagnoses, it shows a level of confidence in his knowledge that I don't often see in doctors. I highly recommend his services!

This was my first visit to a general practitioner in NYC, and I was not disappointed. I expected a very short appointment to address my concerns, as I feel most doctors are rushed and always too packed in their appointment schedule. Dr. Degenhardt proved me wrong! It took some time to get into the examination room, which he apologized extensively for. But instead of rushing me out, he spent ample time addressing every aspect of my health concerns/problems and even explained his reasoning behind the questions he was asking me. I think the appointment lasted almost an hour and a half, and that was all face-time with Dr. Degenhardt or with an NYU student (who I gave permission to be present at the beginning of my appointment), not waiting in an examination room all by myself. For a doctor who spends genuine time addressing concerns, I would highly recommend Dr. Degenhardt!
