Verified Patient Reviews
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.
Very friendly staff and doctor!
DR. Metzger is caring and knowledgable. I plan to remain a patient for years to come.
Excellent and thorough at my first annual physical with this doctor.
Very prompt and helpful, good listener, efficient while being thorough.
I can see why he has great reviews. Made me feel really comfortable. He took his time, didn't rush the session and answer all my questions. The staff are friendly and helpful also. Will recommend Dr. Metzger to anyone looking for a doctor.
Excellent professional knowledgeable concerned doctor. Would highly recommend.
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.
Super nice guy and really helpful.
Very friendly, makes you very comfortable, and doesn't waste any time. Would highly recommend him
He is an outstanding doctor
Really took the time to listen to me. He apologized for the delay. I am very happy to find a new doctor that I like.
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.
I highly recommend Dr. Metzger. He seemed to genuinely care for what was ailing me and honest about his thoughts on treatment. He explained everything thoroughly, giving me options on how to proceed. I feel like I am in very capable hands and trust his opinion.
My visit with Dr. Benjamind Metzger went very well.
Very nice, pleasant and professional. Nicest doctor I have ever been to. Waited 40 min to see him and 20 min for nurse to take my blood. Other then that 5 stars.
Very small waiting room, somewhat overloaded receptionist - all good once I finally saw the doc, though.
Dr. Benjamin Metger is enthusiastic and cares about his patients. He was wonderful!

The entire staff was extremely nice and helpful. Dr. Metzger seems very knowledgeable and I'm looking to choose him as my Primary.
he is amazing! connects personally and clearly cares about his patients and loves what he does! i wouldn't have anyone else as my PCP ever!
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 time was 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.
He's one of the best doctors I've ever visited.

Reception had not verified my insurance (even though I had scheduled the appointment and provided insurance details more than 10 days before), and they did not ask about it when they called for confirmation 2 days before the appointment. I had to wait for ~1 hour for them to verify my insurance provider.
Though the wait time was longer than I would have liked, his bedside manner more than made up for it! Dr. Metzger seemed eager to get to know me and made sure to answer any and all questions I had.
Excellent interaction. Great bedside manner and very informed and caring.

I really recommend him

Everyone in the office is very friendly. I highly recommend DR. Metzger.
An outstanding internist who took the time to listen to me and was thorough in his assessment and recommendations. Additionally, his training in nephrology and understanding of "areas" beyond his field are unique. Dr. Metzger took extra time with me after a very trying day and took into account the "whole picture" asking all the right questions to decide on a course of examination and testing (blood panel) to rule out general medical conditions. Thank you!
Very knowledgeable and a nice guy.
Very efficient doctor. Listened to all my health concerns. I love the fact that he actually sits and go over your lab results with you. I have found my doctor for life. I would recommend him.
Great sense of humor! Wait time is unfortunate, but ubiquitous in NYC.
Very nice & compassionate doctor.
Dr. Metzger is great. I have been to see him a few times and he has a great personality and makes you feel very comfortable.
