Verified Patient Reviews
I very much enjoyed my appointment. I was seen early, my care was very attentive, the bedside manner was pleasantly comfortable.
Dr. Bregman is knowledgeable, compassionate and very thorough. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an MD.
Not only Dr. Bregman patiently addressed my questions at the appointment, he also promptly responded to my email afterwards.
I found a real great family doctor!
I have been a patient of Dr. Bregman’s office for several years now. I like the attention and curtesy extended by the staff and doctors during my visit. I like the excellent care I have received from Dr. Bergman and other physicians and nurse practitioners in this office. At one instance the immediate response and care I have been given by this office actually saved my life. Thank you Westside Family Medicine and Dr. Bergman.
Dr. Bregman is wonderful. Very friendly and relatable. I highly recommend him!
Very easy to talk to.
Dr. Bregman was very kind and treated me well. He was open about listening to my concerns and provided multiple ways to treat my ailments!
Dr Bregman was thorough and pragmatic, but also down-to-earth and open to answering a bunch of questions. Between the Clara (spelling?) and ZocDoc mobile platforms, a first time visitor with bloodwork, etc was probably as efficient as it could have been. He will definitely be my PCP from now on.
Excellent experience. Dr. Bregman and the entire staff were very friendly. Highly recommend.
THE DOCTOR WAS REALLY FRIENDLY AND KIND. HE LISTEN TO EVERYTHING I SAID AND MADE SURE HE UNDERSTOOD. HE WILL DEF. BE MY PCP
Haven't had a bad experience at West Side Family Medicine. Every doctor is nowledgeable and accommodating.
Fantastic doctor with useful insights and pragmatic approaches to improving health and wellness. I cannot rate any higher.
Dr B. has been my primary care physician for over ten years. I can’t imagine having a better doctor. He is personable, professional, and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.
I’ve been seeing him for a while. He’s very caring & dependable and no-nonsense
Dr Bregman was my first encounter with a Dr in NYC, and I thought he was excellent - well informed, professional, a listener, ad sympathetic. Thumbs up!
The office has a very nice relaxed vibe about it. Bertie is a mensch; good sense of humor and not totally dug in about non-AMA approaches to healing.
Had a great first appointment with Dr. Bregman. Great bedside manner and took the time to listen to me as I explained why I decided to come see him. Would absolutely recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Bregman has a great bedside manner. He listens thoughtfully and completely and answers questions patiently and completely. Can't recommend him highly enough.
Dr Bregman and his team were knowledgeable, courteous, and left a me with a great first impression. I look forward to going back.
Very professional and fast
Always thorough, professional and prompt.
I've been seeing Dr. Bertie Bregman for several years. I first met him in 2006. Due to an insurance change, I was not able to use him for primary care for several years. But I recently changed providers, and am thrilled to be back in his office. He is incredibly well-informed, and straightforward to deal with. He listens to what I have to say, and asks just the right questions to get to the bottom of things. The office is run very efficiently - appointments happen on time, billing is accurate. And when he himself is not available, the other physicians in his practice are equally competent. I can't say enough positive things about Dr. Bregman and Westside Family Medicine.
He was very punctual. Wonderful bedside manners. He had great advice, was time efficient, and kept an open mind about questions I had to ask. Thank you!
Dr. Bregman is great, very thorough and knowledgeable. He answered all of my questions, walked me through all of my options and made feel very comfortable.
Great visit! Very quick
Very helpful staff. Dr. Bregman seems very knowledgeable and considered a variety of ways to address my questions.
Disclosed information the office shouldn’t have to someone else
Dr. Bregman is honestly the best! I wouldn’t want to see any other primary care physician.
He's very pleasant and seems thorough. I appreciate his use of technology such as Klara to share information with me. He even recommended an app for yoga! I must emphasize that the ease of scheduling an appointment through ZocDoc is one of the big reason I went to this practice. So convenient! And I'm not just flattering the company. It's a real help.
He is the best.
Bertie was fantastic - very knowledgable and nice.
Dr. Bergman was great. Answered all of my questions and was extremely courteous. Lab results also came back immediately and he communicated very efficiently.
Very professional and trustable doc
Great dr, highly recommend.
I have been a patient for sometime now and I would not have it any other way. Professionalism, respect, efficiency and a great sense of comfort is what I experience when ever I have a visit.
Looking for a doctor for the whole family and we have found one!!! Rachel and Bertie are both warm human beings who make us feel listened to and taken care of. And a very well run operation with smart, capable, helpful staff.
Dr. Bregman was very careful, attentive and personable. He answered all of my questions. He contacted me back to follow up on my lab results. I am very glad with my PCP choice.
The receptionist and nurse were curtious and efficient. The doctor was friendly, patient and supportive.
I came in to see Dr. Bregman to get a new prescription for my asthma medications and to have my eczema flare up looked at. He listened to me talk about my concerns, then checked out my lungs and skin. He was great! He suggested a food allergy test, which my last doctor denied when I suggested it. He just made everything easy and quick, which I think every NYer appreciates.
Friendly staff, attentive and thorough doctor. Highly recommended!
First visit was direct and too the point. We talked about health problems and goals and how to get healthier going forward.
Very detailed and inquistive about my concerns. pleased with his approach and care plan in regards to my health
Dr. Bertie Bregman is so warm, concerned, experienced and personable. As a patient, who has been with him for years, I couldn't ask for a better doctor!

I thought Dr. Bregman was a great and very kind doctor. He gave me a great examination. Highly recommended!
Dr. Bregman was punctual, friendly, efficient and thorough. He was able to conduct a short visit without any sense of rush and made me feel like we could have spoken about anything had I needed to.
Dr. Bregman and all the doctors in this practice are fantastic. I just can't say enough. They offer holistic care and take time to answer all questions. Best doctor I have ever had. By far.
Dr. Bregman is an excellent professional with a lot of experience and is a doctor I would recommend.
Experienced, Patient, Thoughtful and Committed. The BEST!

Dr. Bregman really relates to young people well. He gave my son a shot before he even realized what was happening. My son gives Dr. Bregman a big thumbs up.
Dr.Bregman was excellent. He took his time to diagnose and answer questions. The office staff is very efficient and friendly as well. Highly recommended.
Really personable and thorough. Great experience overall with him and the staff
Aside from the intake coordinator calling 50 minutes!! before my appointment to ensure I actually needed to be seen by Dr. Bregman -- everything else went pretty standard.
Wonderful, smart, and considerate physician. The best we could hope for as a family.
I switched from my long time PCP who no longer took my insurance to Dr. Bregman after a few tries with different doctors. Dr. Bregman was thorough, took time to get to know me and discuss my history. I was very happy to have found Dr. Bregman and this practice. The staff are great too.
Dr. Bregman was as wonderful and kind as everyone else has said he is. A true pleasure, a great doc.
Great! Dr. Bergman is super personable and professional while providing real insight into your health.
The staff is Great as is Dr, Bregman. I'd like to stay with the office.....as long as I have insurance!
It's been a difficult time and Dr. Bregman took the time to actually listen and it felt like he understood what I was saying, not just hearing me. He also helped me transition a large number of medications I am currently being prescribed to a different pharmacy which should be seamless.
Very professional and personal
Dr. Bregman was great. He went over everything with me and laid out a plan to help improve the issue without treating it with meds.
Through, as always.
He is very easy to talk to, a good listener, and has a great bedside manner.
Excellent office, very professional but also friendly.

Dr. Bertie is amazing!

Dr Bergman was friendly, professional and well informed. He gave me a referral and explained what to expect.
Dr. Bregman is the best. Nice guy, very smart and booked up, very communicative and responsive. Basically the best doctor I've ever had, tied only with his colleagues. This is a great practice.
Fav Doc in the world!!!
Dr. Bregman was friendly and approachable. He asked questions to get to know me and actually listened to my answers. I appreciated his attention.
He was fantastic and so kind! He gave me tremendous advice and was very patient.
He's a great doctor and makes me a better patient.
went for a physical. He was very thorough and asked many questions which was great (cause you know your mind always goes blank at the doctor's office) Even recommended some exercise tips during the winter months . Glad i moved to their neighborhood.. Found my new primary care physician :)
excellent manner, I felt I was talking with a real human who listened and paid attention to me, rather than someone just staring at a computer monitor.
Dr. Bregman continues to impress me with his professional and warm manner. He takes time to listen to his patients and provides solid medical advice. His exams are thorough and he actually spends time getting to know the patient, a rarity in the medical world nowadays. I have recommended Dr. Bregman to several people who now use him as their PCP. His office staff is professional, helpful, kind and courteous. My experience time and again is a positive one.
Straightforward and comprehensive. Even as one of the last patients at the end of a long day he took the time I needed and was very informative and congenial.
Most pleasant, efficient appointment I have ever had!
My family loves him! Great doctor, thorough, caring, lovely person, what more can we say?
Be sure to confirm which office your appt is at if you book through zocdoc
Dr. Bregman was very professional and had great bedside manner. I would highly recommend him.
I booked my PCP appointment with Dr. Bregman based off of other patient reviews, and was definitely not disappointed. He was personable and very knowledgeable, and had great bedside manner. I was able to book the appointment last minute, and was seen right away. I enjoyed meeting his staff members, who were also great. Definitely would recommend him to other patients.
He's great very personable and answers all my questions fully and with detail.
Everything from start to finish was perfect!
Very knowledgeable and great bedside manner. Would highly recommend.
Dr. Bregman is great. Saw him for several years when I lived on the UWS. Great bedside manner, very attentive. Wish I could have stayed with him but we moved to Brooklyn and the trek was too far.
Dr. Bregman is very thorough and personable. I never get the feeling that he's rushing out to meet with another patient or that my questions are going unanswered.
Great visit! The office had all the services I needed. The doctor was very helpful and was good at listening.
I was looking for a new PCP and Dr. Bertie Bregman came highly recommended via reviews on ZocDoc and I cannot agree more. He's extremely personable and was willing to answer all my questions with patience.
First time visit - very satisfied. Dr. Bregman has a great attitude and helpful staff.
Dr. Bertie Bregman is a brilliant doctor and he is tops in his field. My whole family sees the docs from West side Family Medicine (my wife, myself and my 2 kids) and we all feel that we are in very good hands......
My visits with Dr. Bregman are always excellent. He really knows his stuff, and I'm always impressed with the fact that he is so knowledgeable and well versed - and accomplished - in techniques and procedures that other PCP's will always send you to a specialist for. He obviously loves his work and it shows. Reminds me of the "general practitioners" that I grew up with when I was a kid - the ones who tackled anything and everything, and were also knowledgeable about everything!
Dr Bertie Bregman was so friendly, professional & informative!
I went in for a routine sick visit, they had me in and out within 20 minutes of my appointment time. Will be visiting again in the future.
Excellent doctor, very professional, answered all questions and approached all subject manner in a nonjudgmental way. Highly recommended.
He was very precise and attentive
A caring and knowledgeable doctor who took time to give extra advice.
Helpful, professional, kind, and knowledgable. Lovely little office space too. So happy I booked this appointment!
Dr. Bergman really talked to me and showed concern for my health and overall well being.
Dr. Bregman is a professional. Friendly, very easy to talk to, thorough. He took the time to explain things and answer my questions. Just as I was about to leave he caught me and asked a few more questions and ran some simple tests that he thought of after our initial meeting just to check on some new ideas he came up with after the examination. I'm very glad to have found a good doctor and will continue to rely on him for future needs.
great doctor, great staff!
He was very nice and concerned. Very polite and friendly. He had even read past notes from my previous visits. My husband came with me and when I introduced him to Dr. Bregman, he congratulated me because he had read that on my last visit I was engaged. Even though I had previously met with another doctor.
Dr. Bregman was professional and courteous. He answered all my questions and I did not feel rushed, A great doctor with a friendly office staff.
My doctor visits was great I'm satisfied own that I have my doctor
Prompt. Helpful. Will definitely be my PCP going forward.
Great advice.everyone at this office is really thorough and professional. HIGHLY recommend if you are in this neighbourhood.
I was there on time. No wait time. They got all my information thru ZocDoc. My health care provider card is on their screen when they pull up my record. Quick on everything. Setup me up with Klara for future communication. Definitely recommend him!
Dr. Bregman is wonderful. Great bed side manner, listened to my situation and gave helpful and knowledgable information. He did the test needed and didn't try to get me to do more than what was required to assist me in my medical needs. I love the doctors at Westside and highly recommend Dr. Bregman and this office.
Dr. Bertie Bregman is a real 'mentch.' A genuinely good person. Bright and humble, dedicated to helping his patients, with a clear grasp of the medical situation and a sweet personality. Highly recommended!
I'm a new patient and very impressed. Much better experience than my last in NYC. Will stay with them for future appointments.
Totally liked this doctor. Excellent bedside manner. Knowledgeable. Professional.
Dr. Bertie Bregman has been my primary care doctor for the past ten years, and he has also been the doctor for my daughter and my husband (who also is a physician and who has fairly high standards). There's a reason why my whole family has trusted Dr. Bregman for a decade: he is unfailingly kind and encouraging, he has a great sense of humor, and he offers intelligent, sensible, and down-to-earth guidance that has kept us all healthy and happy. In an era when most of my interactions with physicians feel rushed and impersonal, Dr. Bertie (as my daughter calls him) takes the time to get to know his patients, which allows him to offer care that is unparalleled in quality and attentiveness. We feel blessed to have him as our family doctor.
Courteous & Professional Staff Was in to see Dr. B within 10 minutes of my arrival at the office Highly recommend Dr. Bergman ...
Dr. Bregman's manner is always congenial and professional. His diagnosis is always clear and comprehensive. His office staff is now also very pleasant and engaged.
Dr. Bregman is a very good doctor. He answered to all my questions and listened to all I had to say without rushing me. His staff is very friendly and professional. The blood test on site is practical and the nurse was really caring.
We have been using Westside Family Medicine for the whole family and we really like everything about this practice and particularly Dr. Bregman.
I had a great experience with Dr. Bertie Bregman - clearly a very knowledgeable doctor and great bedside manner. He explained things clearly and understandably, was very thorough, and made sure all appropriate tests were run.
Dr. Bregman is not a very warm friendly doctor. He is not very knowledgeable about holistic medicine.
Great doctor with excellent bedside manner! I will be going back.
Great doc! Highly recommended
No wait time, very nice office, very personable
Felt unheard, rushed and judged.
Dr. Bregman is excellent. I went for my usual 6 mo. follow-up and to renew my Rx, but he was, as usual, very thorough and asked all the questions necessary to ensure that I was on track with my health. The office and med staff are always very personable and polite and it's always a good experience when I go there. Highly recommend him and his staff for your medical needs.
Was taken back within 5 minutes of arrival. The staff was very professional and warm. Dr. Bregman was thorough and really took the time to get to know my medical history, and I didn't feel rushed at all. Great office, great doctor!
Personable, professional, and smooth
Great! Dr. Bregman is very professional and makes patients feel very comfortable.
Dr. Bregman and his office was great! Arrived, got checked in right away, signed me up for their messaging service. Was less than 5 minutes before the nurse came to get me and then I saw the doctor right away. He was able to diagnose me quickly and then prescribe me the appropriate treatment.
Great doctor! Warm, friendly, knowledgeable, funny, and caring. Will definitely use him as my primary care doctor.
The best . I feel in very good and competent hands
That if he solves the staffing problem, he'll have a practice that reflects his talent.
Dr. Bregman is knowledgeable, practical and efficient. I also really appreciate his efforts to make a personal connection toon with his patients:....
Dr. Bregman was very professional but also personable and a great listener. I felt at ease being treated by him and safe to share any concerns I had. He did a great job of explaining what he was doing - clear but not overly talkative and descriptive. I'd highly recommend him!
Dr. Bregman is very upbeat and positive. Good check-up. Staf is also great.
We have seen Dr. Bregman a few times for our daughter and he has always been great and is very helpful.
Dr. Bregman is an excellent doctor. So thorough, not an alarmist by any means, and all decisions based in medical literature. Cares about the whole patient. Super nice guy to boot. Highest possible recommendations!
Highly visible professional, friendly
Dr. Bregman is the best. Thorough, friendly, attentive and great overall.
Office was organized and the visit was good. Dr Bregman pays attention to the details.
Very happy with Dr. Bregman. The office could use a little brightening and cosmetic work though.
Friendly, professional and thorough, as always. Would recommend him to anyone!
The online appointment setting made it quick and easy to get an appointment. I got to the office at my exact appointment time & was taken back right away by the medical assistant. She was very friendly as she took my blood pressure, temperature, etc. I only waited a short time for Dr. Bregman. He was just as pleasant as the assistant and answered all my questions. I am very happy with the entire experience and will definitely have Dr. Bregman as my PCP!
Took me right on time, spent as much time with me as I needed, I didn't feel rushed, answered my questions. Over all was a great visit.
I was satisfied with my appointment and will return again happily!
Both Bertie and Rachel Bregman are smart, compassionate and personable doctors. I really trust and like them and feel lucky to have found them.
Personal, professional, calm. Felt very at ease at this first appointment with Dr Bertie Bregman
Terrible doctor. Dismissive and condescending. Ignored my serious symptoms and told me to just take Tylenol. When I called at 2pm the day after my visit to report I was getting worse he didn't bother returning my call until after 6pm and then told me to just go to the emergency room rather than offering to see me for a follow up or prescribing anything. He couldn't have called me back earlier in the day? Or stayed open a little late so I could see him again? Sending your patient to a ER because you're too lazy to treat them is really the lowest of the low. Dangerously dismissive and terrible doctor. Would never see him again ever. Avoid at all costs.
Can't say enough good things about my doctor. He's a pro.
Dr. Bregman was professional, thorough, and efficient. I plan on seeing Dr. Bregman for any of my medical needs as long as I am in New York.
Dr. Bregman is very professional while still being extremely personable. He is very invested in your health and well being, while also being invested and interested in you as a person, i.e. your job, hobbies, interests, etc. I would strongly recommend him to anyone who is new to the city or is in need of a primary care doctor that will be just as personable as their small town home doctor was.
They don't come any better than Dr. Bregman! He is a brilliant doctor and a mensch! What more could you ask for?
He was very helpful with the numerous questions I asked !!
Dr. Bregman was very personable and has a great bedside manner. Highly recommend him as a primary care physician.
A great communicator and excellent advice!
Very professional. On time. Friendly.
Very attentive staff. Everything is well explained! Love this place!
I was looking to establish a primary care physician in New York and Dr. Bregman was very thorough in his patient intake and was also very personable and down to earth. I would definitely recommend.
Wonderful. Fells like family.
Highly professional and caring
I had a great experience with Dr. Bregman.... until I got the bill. I was tested for a lot of things that my insurance did not fully cover. It would have been nice to know the pricing specifics before he went ahead and ordered the tests.
I have had good experiences with several of the doctors and nurse practitioners here, however, I consistently have trouble with the front desk when there is any follow up needed. They are not responsive and they also aren't helpful on the phone. I routinely have to call them several times, and when I do speak to a human being, I don't get any reassurance that they care about helping me or that they have any intention of following up on my question. I am currently looking for a new primary care physician practice for this reason and that is the reason I said "maybe" for whether I would recommend this office in future.
I've been seeing Dr. Bregman for several years and he is great. He spends time with you and listens to what you have to say.
Can't praise him highly enough. Friendly, direct, and the perfect combination of common sense cutting edge medical knowledge.
Friendly and highly professional.
Dr. Bregman has a very easygoing manner. He was very reassuring and intuitive. He took the time to understand my issues and provided good, sound advice and next steps. The office staff is professional, courteous and provide excellent customer service. The office is spotless and comfortable. The use of technology to maintain medical records and order prescriptions makes everything easy start to finish. I would highly recommend Dr. Bregman and this practice.
Amazing doctor with great bedside manner!
I had a really great experience with Dr. Bregman this morning. He was personable, answered my questions clearly and was thorough. His staff were also incredibly nice and they were running early!
He is a excellent Doctor. Can't recommend him enough!
This was my first doctor visit in a decade. I was seen quickly, within minutes of arriving at the office. The doctor and nurses were pros. I'm happy I went here.
Compassionate, helpful and committed!
Dr. Bregman is polite, friendly, and has a great bedside manner. He's logical and practical, and knows up to date apps for helping track health and fitness.
Dr. Bregman is very personable, patient, and listens well. He took the time to thoroughly examine me, listened to my concerns and possible explanations for a skin rash I had mysteriously contracted. He didn't know the answer--neither did the dermatologists I went to for a specialist's opinion, but I was most appreciative of the time he took to try to help me and felt I was in excellent hands for an upsetting and unexplained medical problem. He sort of reminded me of the old time doctors who cared about their patients and didn't just process them. Caring, smart, and a good communicator!
Great bedside manner, easy to discuss sensitive issues, will walk through medical explanations, glad to have him as a GP.
Dr. Bertie Bregman was great. I was impressed by his professionalism and thoroughness. Dr. Bregman listened to my concerns and addressed them. He was easy to talk to and I didn't feel rushed. The office staff was friendly and professional.
This was, without question, the best doctor's visit I've ever had.
This doctor goes the extra mile!
He looks you in the eye and really listens to what you say.
I love Dr Bertie. I never have to wait very long to see him, I never feel rushed in his office and feel that truly listens to my concerns. He's not a pill pusher either and that earns a lot of points in my book.
My whole family has been using this great family practice for several years now and we have been very satisfied with all the docs in the practice. But Dr. Bertie Bregman is truly outstanding. It is extremely rare these days to find a "GP" or "family physician" who is so well versed in medicine and is so capable of treating issues for which other GP's would refer one to a "specialist". He targeted and treated my extremely painful, chronic hand injury today, and I appreciate and am greatly relieved that he took immediate action to get me better as quickly as possible, especially since my work depends 100% on the use of my hands. I got specifics / protocol to follow up with and was asked to check back after a couple of weeks, to see how things are progressing. Thank you, Dr. Bregman!
Dr. Bregman is so attentive. He addresses each of your questions carefully. He's still really efficient, and has a great attitude. The staff here is courteous, and you're seen right away! No wait time. Will definitely be going back.
To the point. Very thorough. Addressed all issues and concerns. Great communicator. I highly recommend.
Great, positive attitude. Got back to me right away with my results and answered any questions / concerns. The administrative support is lacking a bit, since it takes you a while to get in contact with the receptionist. But other that, I've had a very good experience and will be seeing Dr. Bregman again!
Professional, good bedside manner, was seen right away. Clean bright office.
Quick appointment. Nurse was able to take my height/weight/BP as soon as I walked in the door. Dr. Bregman asked all the relevant questions I would have thought to ask, and gave me detailed information for what to do at home and when to follow up.
This is truly how a medical practice should be run. Extremely efficient and friendly members of their team take the time to listen to patients. I've seen two physicians at this office, Dr. Mathes and Dr. Bregman, and both have been phenomenal in their bedside manners. As a medical professional myself, I highly recommend their practice.
Dr Bregman was smart, caring, and thorough, with realistic advice for life style changes I can adopt to improve my health.
Very kind and efficient. I'll be back.
Very accommodating and nice office staff. Very welcoming. Dr. Bregman answered all my questions thoroughly and offered some great advice. I felt extremely comfortable dealing with both Dr. Bregman and his staff. I would highly recommend.
Nice demeanor, nice offices, quick visit- but thorough..
Dr. Bregman is outstanding. He is the first GP I have ever been to that I actually wanted to stick with.
Everyone in the office was very nice and friendly. The nurse and Dr. Bregman were both very thorough and obviously showed that they cared about my baby and myself. Dr. Bregman asked a lot of relevant questions and provided me with information that I needed and then spent some time answering any questions that I had.
Very professional and empathetic - thorough with his questions.
Very nice experience with Dr. Bregman and the other doctors in the office.
Very professional. Efficient and thorough.
Dr Bregman was fantastic! Worth the wait.
Really really happy about this experience
I love this Doctors office period - I have been a patient of theirs for a couple of years and so has my daughter - I just love them and can not recommend them enough! Awesome bedside manner and never in there for more than 45 minutes! They take the time to explain things and really get to know you - the place is also very clean - living in NY you REALLY come to appreciate that!
Great listener, warm demeanor, easy to talk to
He is a consummate professional
I met with Dr. Bergman for a routine physical. Both he and his staff were very pleasant. Based on the care I received, I'm comfortable saying that he seems to genuinely care about his patients; he wisely took extra time to re-check some of my vitals that seemed every so slightly outside the normal range, and found that the initial measurements were skewed. I will return as a regular patient.
Very professional and kind! Highly recommend his team.
Dr. Bregman is the Best. Knowledgeable. No wait time. Wonderful bedside manners. What else can you ask for when you need a doctor.. I surely recommend him!
Quickly saw me and established
First visit for me with Dr. Bregman and it was a very positive experience. I was seen on time, he answered all of my questions, did a thorough exam, and gave me some health suggestions.
He was very thorough, inquisitive, and casual.
Great doctor! Excellent bedside manner. Quick test results and explained everything! This office and doctor is a keeper!
Really friendly, professional and calm doctor. Was attentive in my explanations of my symptoms, administered a throat culture test right away and prescribed me penicillin that completely wiped out my problem. I highly recommend.
As usual Dr Bregman goes the extra mile!
It was great! Everyone on the staff made me feel welcomed. I arrived at the office 45 minutes early and I was attended to immediately. Dr. Bertie Bregman had tremendous bedside manner. We had a lengthy conversation about my history. He gave me his complete attention. I think I am going to be happy with my new doctor.
Dr.Bregman and his staff are always so kind ,professional and efficient.I appreciate them so much!
I was seen right away. Three day wait for my appointment, which was outstanding. Dr. Bergman was quick and personable.
I had the same Dr for over 20 years but then moved to NYC. My wife had already begun using Dr. Bregman. I'm glad I did too. All my fears about changing doctors were allayed. Very thorough, he listened intently and took his time. Extra pleasant staff too.
Bregman is very friendly and helpful. He never makes me feel like my questions are dumb or unnecessary. He's always got a smile on his face, and he remembers what we talked about the last time I was in his office, even things not having to do with my medical stuff.
Dr. Bregman was very personable and attentive. He was able to diagnose my bronchitis and give me the prescriptions that I needed. I like it that I don't ever have to wait long in this office. It is in and out. I have seen two doctors as Westside and one NP and they are all very professional.
Dr. Bregman was very professional and proved he cares about a patient.
The best doctor.
We love the doctors at this office, and today, even the staff was efficient, courteous and professional. I hope this trend continues, because the doctors have always been great, but the staff left a lot to be desired in the past
I would definitely recommend Dr. Bregman.
I have been seeing Dr Bregman since Sept. 2012. I like that he listens and takes good care of my health. The office location is very convenient for me. I highly recommend!
Been a patient of Dr. Bregman's for a while; good doc. Easy to talk to. Office is well run; the staff are very professional and friendly.
My ideal of a doctor.
Friendly, low-key office. Dr. Bregman is easy to communicate with and the staff is helpful and friendly.
Very personable and easy/comfortable to speak with.
I recently changed and I see a difference in my care should have done this a long time ago.
His office and staff are wonderful and efficient . I was welcomed to the practice as a new patient. Dr Bregman is thorough and made me feel comfortable. He really cares.
Dr. Bregman is great! so personable and knowledgeable.. The only doctor I feel comfortable with..
I went to his 110th street office. It was great! They had me in the room before I was even finished signing in. Dr. Bregman is really nice. He was quick, he answered all my questions, he made sure that i had everything I needed. I came in a week later for a follow-up at his other office (not as nice, in my opinion, but just as quick), and I felt like he remembered everything from last time without having to look at the chart. When I needed a prescription sent in, it was ready for me by the time I arrived at the pharmacy. When I needed a referral, they emailed me a recommendation. The office is very efficient and the staff is very friendly.
A great doctor and office.
Fantastic. I needed a new primary care doc and I couldn't be happier. Thorough, personable, and smart. I wish I had known about Dr Bregman earlier
Dr. Bertie Bregman made the entire check-up experience very comfortable and informative.
Excellent! Very easy to talk honestly to!
Professional, discrete, most helpful and friendly.
What a great experience! I can honestly say I have never had such a thorough checkup where I left feeling like all my needs have been met. I was reccomended by my husband and I am glad I chose to make the switch. I will tell anyone to go to this Dr Bregman and his team! I'm actually looking forward to making another appointment! I will sleep well tonight knowing I have a family team of Drs who are here to serve their customers fully and truly.
Great first visit! Very knowledgeable and thorough. Dr. Bregman is very personable and caring. All of the staff were friendly and professional.
I went in for my annual check up. Dr. Bregman is relaxed, personable and professional and in turns makes you feel immediately comfortable. He appears genuinely interested in your medical history. You're not just another number. His nurse who administered the various tests was also quite professional and able. The front desk staff could be friendlier though. Overall, a positive experience.
It was what I expected. Dr. Bregman is an excellent physician!
Very personable doctor. Wish I had known about this practice earlier. They offer same-day sick appointments, and the office is very efficient. Got me in and out without much wait time at all.
Great! I see the Nurse Practicioner here; she is excellent.
He is the best in every way. Friendly, kind, very smart, very efficient without rushing you the least bit.
A very friendly office. Bertie Bregman is personable and very skilled at his job. Although my appointment moved quickly, I was never rushed. When I got home, my prescriptions had already been prepared by my pharmacy, and the info pertaining to an appointment with a specialist was also in my email.
Everyone in the office is very professional and helpful. It was my first time meeting with Dr Bregman and I found him to be very thorough and helpful. He answered any questions and concerns I had. I left the office feeling so happy that now I have a wonderful Dr that I can rely upon for professional advise. How nice to find a caring professional!
Excellent doctor, listens, asks questions and gives me time to explain any symptoms. That's why he's my doctor!
As usual was excellent!
Dr. Bregman is an extremely nice guy/Dr. He doesn't make me feel guilty about my medical issues. He's made suggestions in the past and if I've decline them he hasn't pressured me to rethink them. I really appreciate that about him. This is one of the reason I will continue to visit his office.
most professional and knowledgeable family Dr and well as pediatric care. he spend enough time to find out everything about the patient and get to know everyone.
Great! He listens and is efficient but thorough.
Very positive and satisfied.
Great doctor, so pecient ans so proffesional
He's always great! He listens well, then makes suggestions and recommendations rather than issuing commands.
My first visit at Dr. Bergnan. He was attentive. He listened, asked questions, cared for details and suggested tests. Very pleasant doctor and overall very good experience.
A wonderful doctor
Bertie is very helpful, honest and very thorough in his evaluations. I think that it's hard to find a doctor in NYC that you can trust but I trust Bertie and would highly recommend him.
Perfect! that's why I keep coming back.
The front desk people are rude. After being called saying that I was late for my appointment, which they had down as 3:40 when my appointment was at 4, I arrived at 4 p.m. and after showing them the confirmation email from ZocDoc, they still accused me of being late. It was their error, and instead of apologizing they acted annoyed. This is the consistent service I receive at the front desk. Dr. Bregman is great, but he should clean house up front.
Awesome Doctor all around. Quick service, great bedside manner. No complaints at all!
Dr. Bregman is both caring and professional. He listens well, is responsive, but does not over-treat.
Excellent care, kind, answered all questions, informative, careful with my infant when giving vaccines and examining
Best service I've ever had. Very understanding.
Very impressed and happy with Dr. Bregman, he was friendly and courteous. Generally a fan of the doctors here, though the office can be hard to reach on the phone and their availability can be spotty.
Dr. Bregman is a gifted practitioner with knowledge and skill.
As usual, kind, courteous, and attending.
It was good. I felt reassured and well cared for.
Dr. Bregman was very attentive and professional.
This is how it should be!!!
Loved the efficency of the office, came in took my co-pay, was immediately escorted into an office, blood pressure, weight and temp was taken and then was brought in to the Dr. Bregman. He spent 20 minutes with me, gave me some recommendations and we made another appointment for a total physical (came for a specific issue, not a physical exam.)
He is superb!
He listens carefully, is thorough, and detailed in his explanations. He is also very personable. I'm lucky to have him as my doctor.
This guy is great.
Professional, thoughtful, thorough, courteous.
Excellent, this doctor is really great!
Very courteous and friendly. Listened to me and didn't seem rushed.
Best experience you could have. This is a good Doctor.
Very professional, knowledgeable, thorough, friendly and patient, Dr. Bregman has our family's highest recommendation. We cannot imagine how a doctor can be any better or more efficient. Dr. Bregman is #1.
Dr. Bregman is wonderful doctor and a mensch. I should be careful what I say, he may become too popular and then I'll never be able to book and appointment! :)
Knowledgable and kind. Great bedside manners.
All my visits have been great. He doesn't make me feel bad about any of my conditions.
Top notch, as always!
Very friendly and patient. I he won't impose unnecessary treatment. I overall great experience.
Professional and responsive. Took the time to listen to my requests and provided helpful suggestions.
Was seen right away. Dr Bregman was listened to my concerns and I did not feel rushed.
Very professional, very nice, very capable. He was thorough but also didn't keep me forever. This was my first visit, I came away impressed
Generally good doctor and experience if you take your child for well child check ups.
He is a highly-skilled and compassionate doctor who takes the time to listen to his patients. This is a great practice.
Dr. Bregman is compassionate and knowledgeable. Highly recommended!
It was excellent!
Phenomenal service and care, as always.
Friendly, empathetic and intelligent! A great doctor
Pleasant, patient, knowledgeable
Best family practitioner....despite moving out to Brooklyn, I still commute to the upper west side for Dr. Bregman!
Dr. Bregman is knowledgeable and friendly. He was working immediately following Hurricane Sandy (Oct 31- Nov 1, 2012); without question, that indicates dedication to his practice and his patients. Moreover, his Internet and phone were down because of the hurricane. Nevertheless, he made the best of the situation. I was a new patient and he agreed to see me, which is outstanding, I believe, given the circumstances. He asked me many germane questions to tap into my medical history and recorded these indicating he is a serious medical practitioner. For these reasons, I recommend Dr. Bregman. Sincerely, Dr. Ari Sherris Teachers College Columbia University
My visit was excellent and quick. I was close to 30 minutes late and Dr. Bregman still saw me with no delay or issue. He answered my questions and cleared up my confusion on a few issues. I will miss the ease of visiting his office when I move to Texas next week.
It was fantastic, I highly recommend him.
He is very understanding and knowledgeable. The office runs like clockwork. Truly a pleasure.
He is a good Doctor.
I always feel in good hands when I see him. He listens and has good insight. Over the course of the year he not only looked after me in a very personable and professional manner but when needed he referred me to some really great specialists. I owe him a lot.
Very good attentive doctor.
I had to wait an hour and ten minutes to be seen by the doctor. I really like Dr. Bregman, but the wait time was highly unprofessional.
Good, although I was pressed for time during my lunch hour.
Everything was great, but I found the front desk staff very unprofessional. The one assistant didn't even bother to get out of her chair to come collect my copay, and then another one said I didn't have a copay after I had written a check. Then they proceeded to speak amongst themselves in Spanish, which I find to be rude when it's clear the patient is an English speaker.
Great! Would recommend!
Dr. Bertie Bregman was excellent. He even called me a few days later to personally check on my progress. Thank you, Dr. Bregman.
I was very pleased with that experience. No long wait at all, while inside, no rush to finish the appointment. Worked for me!
He has a very calming way about him. He is very nice. Very knowledgeable. I hate going to see doctors but his attitude makes it easier for me to schedule my next appt. I'm glad he was suggested.
I think that he is a great doctor and very professional. Thank's
Since I lost my health insurance, Dr. Bregman has gone out of his way to find the most cost-effective treatments and prescriptions. Here's someone who's actually doing something concrete to control health care costs.Best doctor I've ever had.
So bright, direct and thorough. Bertie really knows his stuff.
He is wonderful--kind, sincere, smart and thorough!
Very good, no nonsense, physician.
Dr. Bregman can make anyone feel at ease. He is the best doctor I've had yet.
Very professional and attentive.
Dr. Bregman listened to what I had to say about the history of what I was experiencing and was quick to offer advice and a solution. I appreciated that he listened without judgment.
Dr Bregman is very professional and has a pleasant bedside manner. He listens well and takes time to explain things.
He is concerned, patient, and direct - I recommend him without reserve
pleasant. I have no health issues so I can't tell anything about his skills, however, if Ii had a medical issue, I'd probably go to see him
This is my second visit to this practice and I am very impressed. I was seen by the doctor right away (and I was a little early). I got all my questions answered and I got some good advice. Very professional and very friendly. Thank you!
I'm very satisfied with my latest experience. The appointment was on time and this doctor is great. Extremely professional and knowledgable.
Great visit. Dr. Bregman is very kind and attentive.
Always takes his time with me and I never feel rushed. He asks great questions & is thorough. Takes late appointments which is very helpful.
Wonderful and caring man. Easy to talk to and never rushed.For the first time in my life I dont dread that annual visit to the doctor.
Very friendly, thorough and efficient!
Very friendly, great experience overall.
The doctor is great. But the administration could improve. I booked on line an appointment on the 110th street location. But the doctor turned out to be at the 70th street location.
Great doctor; competent, congenial and patient. Showed genuine interest; all visits were pleasant with minimal to no waiting time. Highly reccomended.
Nice experience all around. Highly recommended!
I have always liked Dr Bregman. He is courteous, efficient, personable and easy to talk to. Very glad he's my doctor.
I am always pleased with how my appointments go with Dr. Bregman (and the other doctors at Westside Family Medicine). Dr. Bregman has a great bedside manner. I like how he talks through treatment options with me. I feel like he really treats me and my situation in a way that is specific to me and not just as a routine matter.
The doctor is very nice and very professional.
This was my second visit to Westside Family Medicine, yet, my first time as a patient of Dr. Bregman. He was very professional and thorough. He took time out to explain various terms and conditions to me, and showed genuine concern. He is definitely someone who I would recommend. Additionally, his staff were very professional and caring to my needs.
Dr. Bregman is truly a kind and caring doctor. He is thorough and there is no feeling of rush.He has also got a great sense of humor. I highly recommend him.
Doctor was very professional and nice and knowledgeable.
Today was my first appointment with Dr. Bregman. I got there early and they actually got me in 20 minutes early. Dr. Bregman is great. Seemed to be very thorough, great bedside manner. His staff is every bit as friendly as he is. Overall, very happy I selected him as my PCP and I'd definitely recommend him to anyone else looking for a doctor.
Professional and friendly - highly recommended
Dr. Bregman is Great! Highly recommend him!
Dr. Bregman is terrific. Friendly, knowledgeable, laid back and extremely professional. I cannot recommend him West Side Family Medicine enough!
I enjoyed my visit with Dr. Bregman.
Doctor Bregman is supremely professional as well as having a reassuring presence that inspires confidence and makes one feel comfortable and cared for.
The Bregmans are the best. I trust my GP entirely. Very professional and very competent.
Very professional. Very friendly. Will visit again.
Always a pleasure to meet with Dr. Bregman. Sees me right away, clear and helpful when explaining things, and is to the point! Highly recommended.
very pro, right amount of attention and very dedicated.
Doc. Bregman is a great professional and takes time to ask you many questions related to your health condition. He always makes sure that you are healthy and has always given me referrals to great specialists. He is a thorough doctor and knows how to take care of his patients.
He is superb. I can offer nothing but praise.
Dr. Bregman is has a great bedside manner, is very friendly and gentle. He takes his time in both listening and providing advice and I have never felt as if he was rushing to the next patient. His offices are very comfortable and clean. Overall, he is the best physician I have ever had. I would highly recommend Dr. Bregman. I have been his patient for about 3 years now and have had similarly great experiences on all prior visits.
I liked the Doctor very much. His nurse was terrific too.... never have I had such a successful blood draw. The office staff seemed young and vague in their duties. Very sweet girls, but I didn't feel they were clear with me or on the ball. The Doctor had ordered am MRI for me, but when I asked about their arranging it they acted as if they had no idea. It would not have been taken care of had I not brought it up or pursued it.
Very good bedside manner. Thourough, but not excessive. Very good experience.
Dr. Bregman is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and courteous. This was the first time I left a doctor's appointment eager to recommend the physician. The office staff are considerate and attentive. An outstanding health care experience.
Good first visit. Looking forward to the follow up.
Dr. Bregman took his time. Its been a long time since I've seen a doctor who didn't always seem like he/she was in a rush to get me out the door. Dr. Bregman listened to the questions I asked and answered them thoughtfully.
Dr. B is awesome, if you are thinking about getting a new doctor, or changing doctors, you cannot go wrong here. Even though I try to diagnose myself in advance of every visit, Dr. B is willing to hear my assessment of my health issues before he offers his professional opinion. He is usually right, but I've had previous doctors who will blow me off and ask if I have a medical degree. With Dr. B, I feel like I am an active participant in my overall health and that makes me want to come back time and time again. I've talked to other patients in the waiting room who, like me, met Dr. B and his staff when they lived in the UWS. Then, after moving to Brooklyn to get more space or have kids, they still trek all the way back. That tells you something since most New Yorkers hate to be inconvenienced.
Just what I expected. No need to wait for more than 10 minutes is very important to me since it says the doctor respect my time as well as his.
Excellent! My wife and I try to avoid those doctors who are seeing 10 other patients at the same time, never sit down with you, and stand with one hand on the doorknob slowly opening the door to leave WHILE you're trying to get answers to your questions and get more information. These doctors are NOTHING like that! And the nurses and staff are equally attentive and don't make you feel like you're getting rushed. HIGHLY recommended!
Excellent physician, personable, kind, thorough, asks questions and engages. Everything was thorough and to the point! Glad he's my doctor. I felt taken care of.
Like the doctor very much; wish he were reachable between visits via phone more easily for small things.
Great doctor. He's always available when you need him. The procedure that he did which was to unclog my ear was painless.
It was our first time. We were delighted!
Pleasant and professional
Best Doctor ever!
Doctor Bregman was very helpful, as usual.
Extremely pleasant doctor and staff. It was my first visit and I was extremely pleased with the service.
Very helpful very knowledgeable. Great
Excellent, very consultative and thorough.
This was my first appt with Dr. Bregman and I was extremely satisfied. He was friendly, professional and knowledgeable. My overall wait was less than 5 mins. His office staff was very pleasant and helpful with check-in and scheduling a return visit.
The visit was fantastic! The office ambiance is bright and friendly. Dr. Bregman and his staff was wonderful, patience, and attentive. When reading my blood pressure, the results came up high the first two times. I reassured them that I don't suffer from high pressure. So, they were patience enough to try the third time and the reading was correct. I would highly recommend and would see Dr. Bregman again for any ailment.
Everything went fine. Everyone was very pleasant and friendly with me. I was only there for a yearly physical, so not a huge deal. But it all went well.
Dr. Bregman was great! He was very professional but still very welcoming and interested in anything I had to say. His staff were incredibly personable as well.
A great combination of professional and friendly. highly recommended
My experience with Dr. Bregman was great. He is very nice and easy to communicate with. It was easy to make the appointment and there was no paperwork to fill out - Dr. Bregman did the medical history directly into the computer. The office staff were very kind and welcoming.
I really cannot say enough about what a positive painless experience I had with dr. Bregman. I'd recommend him and this site
My wait was long because i made my appointment the same day, and i was also a new patient. He and his staff actually stayed late to assist me. The courtesy, level of professionalism and treatment i received made it all worth it. Highly recommended.
He's intelligent, warm, and thorough. Very much recommend him to anyone. verything you want in a doctor and more.
