Very nice and made my experience comfortable
I would high discourage anyone from scheduling an appoint with Dr. Klapholz or any other physician that is associated with New York Cardiovascular Associates. Even though he was friendly and thorough, NYCVA might be the most dysfunctional organization I've encountered. I have tried calling their office at least 30 times over the past two weeks and not once have I spoken to a human being. Once to return their call to confirm appointment and another time to see why the prescription that was supposed to be sent to my pharmacy still wasn't received after two weeks. After calling several different phone numbers, trying various options within the phone menu, and leaving a few messages, I still haven't gotten through to the office. When I showed up for my appointment, they had no record of my appointment through Zocdoc or the fact that I had left a message. I ended up spending two hours at the office for what should've been a max 30 min appointment. If you value your time and sanity, please go anywhere else but NYCVA. You can thank me later.
I am pleased with my choice, Dr.Klapholz is a highly professional, I'd recommend him. I plan to continue my visits, so far greatly satisfied with his services.
Dr. Klapholz was very patient and explained everything to me clearly. Didn't recommend unnecessary tests. Everyone at the office was very friendly as well.
The doctor is a professional and an exceptional person, smile on his, understanding and helpful
Although the clinic is spectacular, the receptionist when you first come in is not professional at all. It seems she's just doing her job just to have a job. However, this is about Dr. Klapholz. He took care of me immediately. My appointment was at 8:00 a.m. and I was there bright and early. He seems thorough, knowledgeable, and ordered some exams for me to take. He seems to deal with the medical aspect of your issue which is totally great as this is why you are there for. However it would have been nice if he listened more since this was my first time as his patient and think that he shouldn't rush the process in his office.
Never responded with the xray results. I still have the symptoms I visited him for with no respite. Will look for a different doctor
He's the best. Super thorough, timely, approachable and I feel 100% taken care of.
I told Dr. Klapholz about my history with sleep apnea and that I needed to get another sleep study to get a new CPAP machine. He recognized that I was aware of my history and he sent me straight to the sleep lab. He was warm and kind during my appointment, albeit quick. I did wait a good 45-60 minutes to see him after my appointment time, and this was after I had already been rescheduled. His front desk staff was kind and respectful, which I found to be comforting as a transgender patient with discordant document information. The office is clean, well maintained and professional. The sleep lab is located a floor down, and it was helpful that I did not have to get a referral to another office to get retested, which occurred during my last sleep assessment. The staff there were able to accommodate my busy schedule and work with my insurance.
9am appointment but had to wait for 90 minutes to see the doctor. The receptionist was nice and quick. The assistant inside the patient only area seems unhappy. Doctor is very friendly, but the wait time is way too long. Recommend to have 8am appointment if you really want to get it done quickly.
Excellent practice for busy professionals with an 8AM appointment slot. Dr. Klapholz could not be nicer or more accommodating.
Dr. Klapholz was very helpful in identifying and diagnosing my issue with Hypersomnia. He listened carefully and took notes as I gave information, and he quickly got me set up with a sleep study at the Sleep Lab. That was a not fun experience, but that's to be expected. His bedside manner is kind and thoughtful, and he is very knowledgeable. The office is well-run. I have never had to wait more than 5-10 minutes to see him. At my last appointment they were able to print off my records and files quickly while I waited.
OMG a totally wonderful, warm and professional experience!!!
The wait time was way too long and the women at the front desk seemed to be socializing for the most part. They were not as efficient and professional as they should be.
Great doctor! I truly recommend him for sleeping problems.
Finally, a really great doctor.
Very thorough, very interested. Rare that you find someone so caring
Dr. Klapholz was great. I didn't have to wait much at all. The doctor seemed very empathetic and listened to me and my concerns. I felt he knew what he was talking about, and wanted to do more than get down to business, but really help me feel better. He made suggestions, and listened when I expressed my opinion about it. I generally don't like doctors because of their horrible bedside manner, but Dr. Klapholz is definitely one of the best doctors I have encountered in that respect and knowledge.
They rushed too much with me,at first i though wow that's great no waiting time,but i was in n out in less than 10mns...doctor did not performed a pulmonary function test on me,he just relied on imaging reports from the ER to say i was ok it was just allergies...and still gave me an inhaler and steroides. The rush was soo bad that i didn't finished the paper work and left.they had to mailed them to me to fill n sign and mail back...i did not and will not... They don't deserve to get pay for that so called visite
Dr. Klapholz was attentive and focused on me. He took time to explain possibilities clearly and seemed very practical. I'm happy to recommend him to others.
Dr. K was direct, concise, and forthcoming during my visit. He seemed very knowledgeable and made a couple of different recommendations for treatment. His office is also very efficient and functions like a well-oiled machine!
Great experience, nice office, courteous people and very knowledgeable doctor!
Dr Ari Klapholz, es un excelente Dr. Tomo el tiempo para escucharme, y responder mis preguntas. E, incluso habla algo de espanol. Se presento extendiendo su mano, y dandome su nombre y saludando de manera atenta y muy profesional. Dr Ari Klapholz, fue muy claro y especifico en las indicaciones y tomo su tiempo para chequearme, sin prisa. Dr me llamo por dos veces, me espero para atenderme aunque era tarde ya, mientra yo estaba siendo atendida por otro Dr en la misma clinica por otra cita que tenia el mismo dia. Dr Ari Klaphoiz, en ningun momento me reprocho que no habia entrado a su consultorio cuando me llamo. ---Ni siquiera lo menciono. Se concentro en darme atencion de primera. Dr Ari Klapholz, es un Dr agradable, en su trato, en todo. lo recomiendo.!
Dr. Klapholz was great! Very professional -- he was very helpful and did not recommend any unnecessary procedures.
The staff was awesome and very professional as was Dr. Klapholz, thorough, precise with his exam and eased my fears to which was so not legitimate at all. Bedside manner a plus!!
Thank you forms quick and easy visit!
He is a caring doctor. Easy to talk to. he actually listens to what you have to say. Taking a sleep study next week.
I felt that Dr. Klapholz has a nice bed side manner and is knowledgeable.
I waited for about two hours, but it was totally my own fault!
World class doctor.
very professional, friendly staff and clean well designed modern offices with plenty of room to sit.
the front office was efficient. Dr Klapholz was friendly, thorough, knowledgable and kind. Great visit!
The office staff is right on. I came the wrong day and they did all they could to get me in even with the doctors busy schedule. Dr. K answered all my questions and prepared me for my sleep test. Finally a doctor who gets to the root of the issue instead of the mahy visits it usually takes to get an answer! Highly recommended
Dr. Klapholz was great! He really took the time to sit down with my husband and I and discuss my husband's health issues. As a nurse myself it is refreshing to see a doctor who takes time to approach a patient as a person and not just a diagnosis. His assessment was thorough, caring and holistic, while at the same time he was knowledgeable enough to rule out unnecessary testing.
Dr Klapholz was warm, friendly and made me feel confident in his diagnosis. He also made me feel like anything that came up would be totally manageable, which made me feel a lot more at ease.
Excellent doctor and service
The doctor was great. Listened to all of my issues and was very polite. The wait was a bit long so make sure to allot enough time to see the doctor.
was seen quite quickly. Dr Klapholz was very personable took his time explaining all to me,from diagnosis to medication which he prescribed.Would highly recommend Dr Klapholz.
Someone from doctor office supposed to call me back on whether a device is available for pick up the next day but nobody did.
Dr Klapholz was patient and made me feel at ease. He gave me the appropriate time to explain my illness and concerns. He gave me great tips to better treat my illness. I was very happy my visit.
I was absolutely satisfied with my experience. Very nice guy and had good advice for my situation.
Caring, competent Doctor who takes the time to explain everything to his patients. Good guy and Great practice.
He's very nice and knowledgable. I moved here from Texas so I needed a new sleep doctor for my narcolepsy and he checked certain vitals my old doctor never asked about (which I thought was fantastic).
Everything about the place was very professional. Unlike some previous reviewers here, I found the staff extremely helpful, friendly and efficient. No waiting at all for an early morning appointment. Dr. Klapholz actually thanked me for choosing to visit them (first time I ever heard that from a doctor). He took a thorough history, was friendly and caring and made a persuasive case for at least trying CPAP, which I had up until now avoided like the plague. He answered all my questions, gave explanations in laypersons terms, did not try to avoid the reality that CPAP is no fun to wear at night, but asked that I judge the results first and then make a decision. I was then sent to a technician to demonstrate the different CPAP alternatives, who also was highly professional and answered all questions. I highly recommend this facility and this doctor.
he said he wanted to set up a lung biopsy & someone would be in contact. w/ me. I waited 5 days & no one called. I called the office & they had no idea what I was talking about. I called 4 times to speak to someone. I'm still waiting.
Dr. Klapholz was really nice and asked a lot of questions. I am a little concerned that he did not run any basic tests because I'm young and should be reasonably healthy; keyword SHOULD. But I liked him enough to set-up a follow up appointment since I'm not feeling any better, and the office was able to fit me right in.
Very nice and knowledgeable guy!
I went there super early, so i can't guage promptness. But everyone was nice in the office. And the doctor himself listened closely to my concerns, explained well, did tests, and explained the results. He was never dismissive of my issues or perceived issues. Very thorough and thoughtful.
The MA's always seem cranky/uninterested but that doesn't bother me the important thing is that the doctor is awesome and extremely helpful he explained everything thoroughly, showed me how to use my medication which no doctor has ever done, explained my lab reports in great detail, and in general was just super nice to me so I really do appreciate everything. He is an awesome doctor, really. If you need to see a specialist I HIGHLY recommend you come here, he will guide you through every step of the way.
Dr. Klapholz was awesome!
Front desk and MA's are whatever just all bored and impersonal but the doctor and his student assistant are sooooo sweet!
very professional with a calm and friendly demeanor.
Dr. Klapholz is so sweet! I went in very nervous, i've never had these kind of health problems before (yaaay growing up!), but he definitely put me at ease. When he noticed how nervous I was with the inhaler (which i'ven ever even seen before) he took the time to explain everything so kindly and patiently. I'm very grateful. His student assistant was super sweet too. Hopefully I won't have to follow up too many times but he's definitely my doctor for these sort of things from hereon-out. Very professional. Very knowledgeable.
Dr. Klapholz seemed knowledgeable and professional. However, his office is completely incompetent. They put you on hold for long periods of time, forget to follow up, and do not do what they promise.
This was my first time meeting Dr. Klapholz. He was very informative and explained all the test and results. He listened to all my concerns and answered all my questions. I was seem right away no wait time.
I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Dr. Klapholz. He was attentive, a great listener and asked pertinent questions. I will certainly be returning. Also, the facilities are impressive. There is a Quest Diagnostics on the floor below in case you need to do blood work. Very convenient.
A great experience! Quick sharp and efficient, the way these things should be.
Dr. Klapholz is absolutely wonderful. He took the time to get to know me and my situation and immediately ordered a breathing test, which none of my other pulmonologists in the past have done on the first day. I found out that my lung function is great. Dr. Klapholz took the time to explain to me what all of the numbers meant and where I fall. He is a really good doctor. Extremely intelligent!!!! I would definitely recommend him to anyone that needs a polmonologist. I was in and out. I was taken even before my appointment time because I arrived early. Additionally, all of the staff are absolutely wonderful as well. They are very nice and are there to assist you. Go to Dr. Klapholz I guarantee that you will not be disappointed.
Very convenient setting up appointment. He was also very thorough and honest. My appointment was at 8am and I was in my office my 9am.
He was really pleasant and comprehwnsive in his asseaament. I felt I got good value for my money.
Dr. Klapholz is knowledgabe and very insightful. He didn't just try to figure out the problem I said I went in for but gave me a complete check up. His office staff didn't have access to ZocDoc files though so the check in process wasn't as seamless, but it wasn't bad either.
Dr. Klapholz has the bedside manner doctors used to have long ago. He will, personally, call you at home to check up. Great man!!!!
He was very knowledgeable and had a great bedside manner. He gave me some great ideas to improve my health.
I was generally disappointed by my visit. I went to the doctor for a persistent cough and literally just told me to come back in a few weeks if I still have it then. It was a waste of time, he should have told me not to make an appointment beforehand. If this were a retail operation I would certainly ask for my money back.
Great location, very friendly doctor and staff. Dealt with my issues quickly and professionally. Found a new permanent specialist!
Very friendly and kind, asked lots of questions, office is brand new and quite nice.
Dr. Klapholz is one of my favorite doctors. He is kind and approachable and very thorough in his explanations, which I really appreciate.
Really smart doc. Was very detailed and patient when interviewing me about my symptoms. Nice guy too!
I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Klapholz. He was patient and kind. I was seen quickly for an early morning appointment and his staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Thankfully, everything is fine, but if anyone I know needed to see a Pulmonologist, I would DEFINITELY recommend him. His whole practice seems fantastic.
It was great Dr. Klapholz was very peaceful and calm and very informative in diagnosing my Asthma condition and explaining my X - Ray and prescribing a spacer to be used with my inhalers and changing one of my meds used with my nebulizer. Both of which I feel are already helping me.
My appointment with Dr. Klapholz was truly a joy, even considering the manner of meeting him. He was very understanding of my situation and was able to set a plan of action that made me feel comfortable and cared for. I showed up on time for my appointment, as the documentation on ZocDoc inferred I would not have to do it at the office. This was not the case and therefore I was very apologetic to the nurse who said not to worry and was all around very warm and kind. The office assistants seemed to be more concerned with their chatter than their work - even with the doctor which I was a bit shocked about. I'm very glad they are enjoying their new iPhones I suppose. All in all I would highly recommend Dr. Klapholz. I have a follow up appointment already scheduled.
A clean, well organized, thoroughly human office!
Yes, I did wait over an hour to see him, but I think it was worth it. As someone who was going to be a doctor themselves, I have to say that I'm glad to have found him. This was my first visit with him, as well as being a first visit to a sleep doctor. He is attentive, patient, funny, knowledgeable, knows how to explain things to you in a way you can understand, and I felt very comfortable with him. He takes his time to get all the information he needs from you. I look forward to going back to his office! Thanks ZocDoc for helping me find him!
Yes I did wait over an hour to see him, but it was well worth it. He is a wonderful doctor. He was attentive, thorough, patient, good sense of humor, knowledgeable, good communicator, and he really takes the time to understand all of your problems. This was a first time appointment with a sleep doctor, and I look forward to going back!
Great visit. Friendly, thorough informative service all around.
I've only had an initial appointment with Dr. Klapholz so I may need to update my review later, but so far I am impressed with how quickly I got in to see him (it may help that my appt. was very early in the morning) and with his calm and friendly manner.
Knowledgable, thorough, personable, answered my questions, and put me at ease.
I think Dr. Klapholz is very competent and took all of my concerns seriously. He offered alternate solutions and treatments that other doctors hadn't covered yet. It was also great that all of the tests/xrays I needed done could be completed in the same center. However, I was told to arrive early, and did, but wasn't seen until more than an hour after my appointment time (about 90 minutes after I arrived).
Very nice man ... Efficient and thorough - ran a few short tests but was quick and painless. Thanks Doc!
Professional and warm. Thank you!
Dr Klapholz himself is very good. However, the staff at this office has put my care into jeopardy several times. First, the doctor prescribed me one dosage of medication, and the nurses at the front desk called in an entirely different dose to medco. I had to wait days before they were able to change it, and I still haven't received my medication I was prescribed 2 weeks ago. I called today to have them call in a temporary prescription to my pharmacy - a simple request. This has not been done either and the office hours are over. This is not a good way to treat patients.
Fantastic experience all around. Looking forward to a long relationship.
Great visit. Listened to my concerns. Clean, modern office and kind helpful staff.
Dr. Klapholz is friendly and listened to all I had to say. His staff is also very nice and makes you feel at ease. I had my results for the breathing test right away and was out of the office quite quickly. I recommend going here.
Dr. Klapholz instantly put me at ease. He explained everything with clarity. His staff is personable as well.
I was very surprised to notice that three patients that came after me were introduced before me, although I was in the office on time for my appointment (which was 9:00 am). When I inquired, I was told that those patients had their appointments scheduled for a time earlier than mine. I felt that this could not possibly be true, as I find it hard to believe that three patients were scheduled between 8:00 and 9:00 am (the receptionist told me that they had started working at 8:00 am).
Very very nice guy who asked a lot of good questions, was thorough, and also gave me other referrals I needed.
Very professional. Performed thorough examination. Prescribed therapy that treated my condition rapidly. Very confident in his abilities.
Dr. Klapholz was wonderful - down-to-earth, kind, and willing to really take the time to explain things to me. The office staff was also very nice and efficient. I would highly recommend Dr. Klapholz to anyone!
Great doctor--very helpful, prompt and knowledgable.
The office was well put together, and Dr. Klapholz did a thorough work-up on me. Very attentive and detailed - I would definitely recommend him to anyone I knew who needed his specialty.
I loved the treatment and the speed, I was in and out
If you are planning on making an appointment, dont bother coming on time or earlier. Rather come at least an hour late which should be perfect. It fascinates me how Doctors time is more important than patients time. I really dont appreciate being made to wait over an hour when I have the common decency to ensure that I have arrived on time. In fact, I had even agreed to make my appointment earlier at the Doctors rooms request to accomodate them. Should have kept my original time. Wait time - over an hour
