Verified Patient Reviews
I feel very fortunate to have found this practice! Dr. Behar is a terrific, highly skilled, caring clinician and her staff are all quite professional and kind. It's comforting to feel like someone is truly watching out for my health, for a change!
She is wonderful, I did not mind waiting a little bit because the only reason for the delay is that she truly cares about her patients. She is an amazing doctor.
Very EXCELLENT patient rapport and clinical skills. Very experienced knowledgeable and personable.
One of the best doctors I have ever seen. She was so great at assessing what was wrong and made sure to do extra tests to try and get to the source of the problem. I didn't feel like a number in her office, but an actual human being treated.
Dr Behar is welcoming, kind, accurate, careful, good listener either in collecting informations as well as in giving the necessary explanations and answers.
she is smart, honest, funny and explains everything!
love her! totally personable, extremely thorough and knowledgeable. very trustworthy - proactively helpful. can't say enough good things!
Very professional, sense of humor, very relational in her approach. Answered all questions engaged in a collaborative relationship.
Unprofessional, shoves you out of the door and cares very little about her patients.

Dr. Behar was very thorough, listened carefully to my symptoms. She made me feel comfortable right away; I will definitely recommend her.
I really like going to see Dr. Behar. She always takes her time to explain in laymens terms whats going on with my body and medications. I really appreciate her friendly bedside manner and I never have to wait long in her office which is a definite plus! She also responds quickly to emails
Dr Behar was AMAZING. She was not only funny and caring but extremely informative! She explains things in very easy to understand terms and is very comprehensive in her approach to care. I would highly recommend her!
I absolutely love Dr. Behar! She genuinely cares about her patients and goes above and beyond to make sure they are okay. I know I will get the absolute best care when I go to see her, and I recommend her to all of my friends.
IT WAS THOROUGH AND CARING.
She is wonderful and really cares :)
Dr. Behar made me feel immediately comfortable. The appointment was quick, but didn't feel at all rushed and she was incredibly personable the entire time.
She is great! I would highly recommend. In this crazy world where no one has time for anything, she makes you feel important and takes her time with you! Very impressive.
She's terrific - very thorough & attentive. Everything you would want.
Informative and thorough. All my questions answered. My next yearly appointment is in February 2014.
Excellent. She gave me a good explanation of what was happening to my body after examination and taking tests. Gave me prescription and future appointment.
She is very thorough and addresses all of our concerns. This is also just a really great office in general. I have never had a great doctor in the city before coming to NYU Women's Langone Health Center.
She's the best!
Dr. Behar was really present when she was with me, she had good questions to ask and gave me some strategies for improving and maintaining my health. I also really appreciated that she followed up my concerns with specific tests in order to address them. I will say that she seemed very busy and did leave the room a few times for an extended period, but I think it was only because she was ordering more tests for me. The nurse Marisa was very gentle and kind and always confirmed the information I gave her before entering it into the system. Some drawbacks included a lot of wait time. I sat for about 25 min before they called me into the room and then each time either the doctor or nurse left the room, I felt like I waited a while. The practice is busy and seems more like a hospital, but the people are friendly and helpful (though they could be a bit more communicative in letting me know what to expect). Overall it was a good experience with minor inconveniences.
Dr. Behar spent A LOT of time with me. She listened to me and offered very useful and understandable advice about my diet. She is very knowledgeable and approachable. I would HIGHLY recommend her!
She is a thorough doctor, taking time to check everything and ensure you feel comfortable enough to really speak your mind and voice concerns.
Very caring, informative, and professional.
I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Dr. Behar. She made me feel at home and was extremely comforting. She was genuinely concerned about my well being and gave me a lot of helpful suggestions for my illness. I will definitely be going back to her for all of my primary care needs.
Dr. Behar took time to explain what was happening and my options for next steps. She was efficient and called me later on in the night to go over my imaging and ensure I was alright. Really excellent physician
Dr. Behar is one of those doctors one rarely comes across nowadays -- especially in the hectic, fast paced city that is New York. I've seen Dr. Behar twice now (both on short notice), and both times she was comforting, informative, personable, and thorough. She took the time to answer my questions, and not once did she make me feel rushed. Dr. Behar really is a gem, and I would recommend her to any of my friends (and especially to young females).
