He was very pleasant, thorough and seemed to know his stuff. It was my first visit and I have not started any of the medications he suggested, so I do not know if they will work. I did not actually geta diagnosis seeing I have to go for further testing. But he did find other things I was not aware of. Would recommend him to others.

This was the easiest visit ever using the online appointment schedule through ZocDoc and my visit with Dr. Astrachan from the moment he came in the room was great. Dr. Astrachan was attentive, and took the time to listen to mysymptoms and evaluated my condition and made his diagnosis with confidence, I had been to so many professionals before my appointment with Dr. Astrachan without any satisfaction. I would recommend this doctor and give him the highest recommendation .

Dr Astrachan is amazing. He truly is s specialist in his field. I've been coming to Dr A for maybe 6 years after seeing 2 other Drs that didn't have the answer. This is the 2nd time that I have cometo Dr Astrachan with strange symptoms and he almost immediately knew the diagnosis. Didn't like the diagnosis, but now I know the issue.

Helpful visit but the front desk person asked me a personal health question across the office waiting room instead of calling me to the window which was a bit alarming. DR and other staff were professional and attentive and kind.

Very good. I was quickly and well treated by Dr. Astrachan, and I liked many things at his medical practice: the premises are clean, wide open, well maintained and welcoming. There is no blasting TV or music, which make waiting roomsso unpleasant at other medical facilities. The staff is professional, accurate, efficient and, more importantly not abrupt to patients, as is often the case. I like this medical practice a lot, and I recommend it wholeheartedly!
