Verified Patient Reviews
I've been suffering from an extremely stuffy nose for two years without having a clue what the cause was. Dr. Bernard would not stop investigating until he found the cause of my suffering. He totally went above and beyond to help me. Him and his team were very good at working with my insurance. I was provided with the best information on how to avoid another allergic reaction. After leaving his office i was finally able to breathe out of my nose for the first time in two years. I cannot imagine a better doctor. Thanks Dr. Bernard!!
This doctor and all his staff REALLY have their act together! Very organized, efficient and prepared from start to finish - even calling my insurance to see what financial responsibilities would be befits the visit - w/o my asking. Dr. Feigenbaum is very professional and really knows his stuff, but still caring and friendly . Highly recommend!
Exceptional Doctor and staff. Professional, timely, caring and thorough. I highly recommend Dr Feigenbaum.
I was actually seen earlier than my appointment time. Dr. Feigenbaum was truly exceptional, very logical, and explained things to me clearly and step by step.
I think he is an excellent doctor. He dealt with my issue with care and didn't force me into any services. His suggestion as to which service to use showed honor and integrity.
Great! Dr. Feigenbaum was really attentive and listened to my concerns. He was informative and personable. He came in knowing my medical background and could tell he reviewed my medical records that were sent over prior to my appointment which is refreshing. I look forward to working with him further to address my allergy symptoms.
When i well got to see the Dr it was great Meryth
Excellent!! Very patient and informative. Great w communication and allows you to email him directly with questions you may think of later... Sidenote: Patients in waiting area spoke highly of him, too.
Dr. Feigenbaum was awesome! Great bedside manner and knowledgeable. He made it a pleasant visit!
Probably the most thorough and honest physician I've ever seen. He's big on punctuality from both ends, spends a lot of time with his patients, and provides well researched follow up. Amazing!
This was honestly one of the best medical office experiences I've had. From scheduling the appointment, to Stephanie corresponding to make sure I got all the forms prior to coming in to the actual visit, it was excellent.
Dr. Feigenbaum was very accommodating and prepared. His assistant Stephanie was very nice and also completely prepared. Dr. Feigenbaum gave me an honest assessment and showed that he did not want to do anything that was not necessary and showed that he did not want to unnecessarily run up a large bill. He wanted to make sure that I was comfortable and made me feel that I was able to make choices regarding my care. This practice really cares about the customer experience.
Awesome Dr and staff!
So far so good. I am working with him and he has provided me hope my asthma problems can be resolved.
Warm and attentive staff that is extremely service oriented. Dr. Feigenbaum is really concerned with your wellbeing. Definitely will recommend to my friends
Very professional, knowledgeable and able to communicate with the patient in a logical, understandable manner. Top doctor! Would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Feigenbaum to anyone who needs a lungs specialist. Also, very efficient and professional support team.
Everything went great! I went in for my asthma and felt very informed and like we had a good plan of attack for managing it when I left. Everyone was very friendly and personable and their later office hours were really helpful for me. The Doctor even followed up with an email after my visit with some more information and to reach out if I had any questions or concerns. I highly recommend Dr. F.
Dr. Feigenbaum is extremely professional, but has a very friendly demeanor. He is quite thorough, and both he and his staff ensure their patients fully understand their diagnosis and leave the appointment feeling comfortable. I would highly recommend Dr. Feigenbaum to anyone having trouble with their allergies.
Great visit. The staff was attentive and helpful and Dr. Feigenbaum listened carefully and provided good insight and treatment options.
He is a very kind doctor makes you feel comfortable and is very easy-going and patient.
Great and Intelligent Doctor!
My appointment was at 4:00, at 3:59 I was there, one minute later I was in! Dr. Feigenbaum is a very professional doctor and as soon as I met him I knew that he cared about his patients. He was very informative and answered all my questions. I think that doctor Feigenbaum is a great example of how every doctor should be!
Highly professional and knew right away what we should do about my husbands problem. Was very interested in his case and sent us to another doctor who could take care of the problem. We definitely would go back to him if we needed an allergist in the future.
This is an amazing practice. Best experience I've ever had with a medical appointment (and I'm 62!!). The staff is awesome and Dr. Feigenbaum lives up to all of his positive reviews. Highly recommend!
Great staff leading up to the visit. The doctor was able to put me at ease as I was very anxious about my situation. He helped me figure out how to approach the problem and find a path moving forward. I feel that I can reach out with questions and get clear answers.
Every positive thing that I read about him is correct. On time, great staff, great doctor. Thank you.
I took my son today and overall experience was great! We were seeing right on time, even with 3 of his assistants on vacation! Dr. F is very knowledgeable and were able to answer all my questions. And most importantly as we were leaving my 8 year old said "Mommy, I like this doctor!"
He was very professional and super helpful. He cared about more than just my allergies but my overall well being.
Definitely a different experience
I found Dr. Feigenbaum to be professional, thorough, and personable. He confirmed to me that the nasal spray I had been using was appropriate for me, and instructed me in the best technique to use it. I had been needing that instruction, and I believe the spray will now be more effective for me. He consulted with me about whether to do allergy testing or not, and let me make my own decision. I decided to participate in the allergy testing, and nothing showed up. I was glad I did it so that I know that I have no allergies to air-born allergens.
Most folks would say any visit to any doctor is not on their list of wants. Having said that I'd gladly go back just for the friendly banter, and great group of people that work here! I'm not gonna lie, this visit was FUN, no joke, it was a pleasant atmosphere and made me feel at easy and as comfortable as being at home just hanging out, whilst getting poked with multiple forms of allergens. Everything was explained and made understood to me, and there was no pressure to have a return visit or gimmicks.
Great from the moment we walked in. Dr. F. made sure we knew what w as s going on and explained each test or reason not to do a test. Over all he and his staff were great and very informative, they will be a tremendous help with our allergies.
Very caring :)
I felt very comfortable with my visit. Dr. Feigenbaum was very informative. I enjoyed his sense of humor.
Smart, thorough and thoughtful.
Very well received, and right on time, a first for any doctor of mine! Was very informative and friendly, would definitely recommend to my family and friends.
I absolutely loved my experience with Dr. Feigenbaum. He and his staff were clean, organized, on-time, and friendly. He took his time with me to truely understand my prior history as well as throughly diagnose my condition. He took the time to explain his procedures and his recommendations on treatment. He printed out materials to help me better understand possible causes of my symptoms and had me leaving the office with a clear and comfortable game plan for addressing my problem.
Very responsive to questions, was prompt, organized. All questions I had about the test conducted, the methodology and any problems the test had were answered straight out and further research topics pointed out to me. Promptness is promptness, the patient after me did not have to wait and everything was on time. Detailed notes were taken at every step of the process, sped up by the involved intake form I needed to fill out before.
Very knowledgeable and professional. Highly recommended.
Comprehensive and complete.
Dr. Feigenbaum is a scholar and a concerned practioner. He took a comprehensive P&E and established a rapport with me. He discusses follow up and what to expect. He takes the time necessary to finish the exam.
Dr. Feigenbaum seemed pretty thorough, but he was training a couple of new assistants at the time so was a bit distracted. It is always hard to tell how good a doctor is after one visit, I will have to wait and see how his diagnosis works out over time. I will be back, of course.
Dr. Feigenbaum is an amazing doctor. He takes his time to get to know you and your concerns. No rush at all. Also, he is extremely knowledgeable, organized, friendly and uses all the newest technologies. Don't be surprised if you get a call or two from the doctor before your appointment. Dr. Feigenbaum will not pretend to have all the answers to difficult questions, but he will research it and get back to you with the information. I highly recommend Dr. Feigenbaum and wish that more doctors were like him.
No wait, very professional office, great staff
Greeted by name as soon as I entered the door. Sent me forms (very comprehensive ones) before the appt. Really thorough, lots of good questions. Friendly staff.
Dr. Feigenbaum was great. You could tell he really cares about helping you and was extremely knowledgeable.
Absolutely perfect! Took his time to get to know all symptoms and explained clearly where it's coming from and how to treat the medical issues.
Dr. Feigenbaum offers the option to send your intake forms and insurance information to him electronically in advance of your appointment. I did so and he confirmed receipt of my forms and reviewed them in advance of my appointment. As a result we didn't waste any time and I was able to see the Dr. exactly at the time of my appointment and we were able to immediately get to my area of concern (allergy issues). Although Dr. Feigenaum was quick in starting my appointment, I did not feel rushed in any way. Dr Feigenbaum spent ample time reviewing and discussing treatment options and alternatives with me. His nurse was in the room during my appointment and between the two of them, they conducted my allergy testing, updated my electronic charts, issued my prescriptions, gave me sample medication and covered dosing, and answered all my questions. I don't intend to discount Dr. Feigenbaum's skill as a doctor by praising his efficiency so effusively. His efficiency means that during your appointment his attention is devoted solely to you and resolving your medical issues. I wish every medical practice ran as well as this one.
My experience with Dr. Feigenbaum was excellent. The doctor personally calls before the appointment to clarify procedures, symptoms of visit, and directions to the office. He also asks that the patient fills out detailed forms about the symptoms before the visit to expedite the process. Everything at the office went similarly smoothly. Dr. Feigenbaum and his assistant were thorough in explaining the causes of of my symptoms, my diagnosis, and my course of treatment. Dr. Feigenbaum seems very open to communication whether it's over the phone or via e.mails/secure website link. Highly recommended!
Dr. Feigenbaum was very thorough and gathered all of my relevant medical history prior to testing. He explained each procedure as well as the diagnosis, making sure I understood both the causes, symptoms and treatment. I'd highly recommend him.
Loved the attention to detail and in general the attitude of both Dr. Feigenbaum and his nurse Emily. No wait time at all, never felt rushed and he really showed interest in my symptoms. Would definitely recommend.
One of the best in the country ....
I am not good with writing elaborate review but all I want to say Dr.Feigenbaum has a great attitude, very respectful. He was very good with explaining everything in easy to understand language. We discussed treatment options, my comfort lever with the treatment before anything was prescribed to me. I wish all doctors had such a great attitude E.
All around great experience
As soon as I met Dr Feigenbaum I felt welcomed. I appreciated the amount of time he spent with me, the questions he asked; I felt that Dr Feigenbaum listened and considered my answers to his questions. We discussed and agreed upon a treatment plan and follow up visit.
He is very thorough and detail oriented. Always returns phone calls. A+++
Cant say enough good things about Dr Feigenbaum. So happy he is back in NYC!
Dr. Feigenbaum is wonderful. I went in for a general allergy consultation and in the process he discovered I had an urgent blood pressure issue. At 25, this was not something I was expecting. He stressed the importance of taking care of myself, recommended I see his own PCP and has aided me through the process of dealing with this unexpected hiccup. Dr. Feigenbaum treated me like a peer; he explained what was going on and we worked together. I would strongly recommend him to anyone!
Great visit! Doctor explained possible causes and went into technical details that made me feel comfortable with diagnosis. Great bedside manner.
Overall I my visit with Dr. Feigenbaum went very well and he listened to my concerns and addressed them effectively. My only issue was the initial intake was performed by his nurse and not by him. During my examination with him I felt like he only glanced over the written intake and I had to remind him of certain facts to ensure I was treated effectively. I would suggest the first visit intake would be performed by him to ensure patient & doctor understanding. I assume this is done to save on time and to alleviate patient wait time - which I did not have.
Great experience with him. He was very attentive and spent a lot of time discussing my allergies and working to help find a solution.
Very pleasant. All of the staff were very kind and thoughtful of my time. I will go back again
I was very impressed with the professionalism and thoroughness of this practice.
Very knowledgeable doctor. Minimal wait time.
Another excellent visit. Waiting time is because this was during a peak in allergy season. VERY highly recommended.
So far so good. He and his nurse, Louis, took their time and listened to what I had to say and spent the time necessary for their advice to be worth the most.
The entire office staff, including Adrian, Brandon and Dr. F's secretary (sorry, I forgot your name... AND Dr. F are so friendly, positive and thoughtful.
Finally, a doctor that is interested in investigation-- who asks a lot of good questions and wants to get to the bottom of my ongoing skin issue! Dr. Feigenbaum is inquisitive, intelligent, friendly and takes the time. I would recommend him, definitely.
