Dr. Metzger is so pleasant!! I didn't go in for anything specific, just as a preliminary visit, referral and general check-up, but I am glad I just picked him for my PCP. He's a 5 minute bike ride from my office, and his staff is pretty nice too.

Couldn't have been nicer. Has a very comforting demeaner and left no doubt in my mind that he knew what he was talking about. Of course there's always a bit of a wait when patients return to the same doctor, but that's because he was worth it.

Without a doubt the best doctor I have ever been to in NYC. Extremely professional, intelligent and caring. I am generally wary of 5-star reviews but Dr. Metzger has earned them.

Very friendly and seemed to cover all the bases. I've only seen him once and it was just for an annual checkup, so I can't really evaluate his treatment when you're ill. But he was very nice and I will definitely see him again.

After my first visit with Dr. Metzger, he is now my primary care provider. Not only did he answer all of my questions, but asked thorough follow-ups to get the full picture of me as a patient. Although the wait timewas longer than I'd like, his attentiveness made up for it. Also, the recommendations he gave for specialists were appreciated and right on the mark.

Very pleasant first time experience with Dr. Metzger. Seems to be very knowledgeable as a primary care. I felt very comfortable with him as I am young adult and he is fairly young as well.
