From the second I walked in the door to the second I left, I knew I was in great hands. Crystal at the front desk always has the brightest smile and welcoming attitude. The nurse (didn't catch her name) was verythorough and kind. Dr. Kaplowitz is the best doctor I have ever had. He genuinely cares and spends time with a diagnosis rather than trying to get as many patients in as possible. He ALWAYS follows up which I have found is rare with any physician anymore. Highly recommended!

This is a friendly, extremely knowledgeable MD. He has a wider range of medical knowledge about a variety of areas, than most MD's I have met. I was very impressed with his thoroughness. He doesn't rush you and explains things fully.His fine staff are very professional, polite and thorough as well. I was looking for an MD who can quarterback all of my specialists and get a wide view of my overall health.

Dr. Kap is a very knowledgeable, friendly and thorough doctor. I believe he genuinely cares about the well being of his patients and he is constantly curious to ensure nothing is being overlooked. He also takes the time to explain whathe is thinking and is happy educate you on the "why" and any risks involved to make sure you make an informed decision about your health.

David Kaplowitz genuinely cares about getting to bottoms of what ills you. I have never seen a doctor that is so willing to check every angle to make sure we are seeing the full picture. He can show you the pathto being/staying healthy but it is up to you to walk it...I'm still trying to curb the salt.

I have never been so impressed by a physician in my life. My appointment was VERY long, but I am a new patient, so not at all unexpected. "Dr. Kap" is very personable, and extremely thorough. He comes across as thoughhe is rooting for you to be healthy, and will do everything he can to get/keep you at your ideal state of health. He listens, asks questions, and addresses your concerns. No matter how long it takes. I have worked around physicians for most of my adult life, and in my experience, you can tell when a physician went into the profession for all of the right reasons. It is obvious that Dr. Kaplowitz is such a doctor. He is not only clinically skilled, but a truly decent human being. A word about his office and clinical support staff: Extremely courteous, efficient, and knowledgeable. True professionals who actually answer the phone when you call the office. This, I have discovered, is a rarity in NYC. Getting an appointment was relatively easy, so if you are looking for a new doc, I highly recommend Dr. Kaplowitz.

Dr. Kaplowitz is awesome. It's rare to find a doctor in NYC that takes his time with patients and genuinely cares about your wellbeing. He's very patient and if you have a mysterious illness he'll take the time to help youfigure out what it is or refer you to a specialist if need be. I believe in the old school way of medical care (doctor gets to know you, you can get in touch with them easily and make an appointment last minute if you are sick with something like the flu).. this is Dr. Kaplowitz.

Doc is extremely thorough in getting tests done to assist in understanding the full picture. He then takes real, great time to get to know the patient, their history, their story, where he actually listens. Then diagnoses and meds, when necessary,are carefully considered and discussed and explained, in depth for full understanding before any prescriptions are given out. His staff is amazing and caring to, which is extremely important! I can honestly say that I believe (with a myriad of physical and psychiatric issues facing me), that Doctor Kaplowitz in no small way, has not only improved the quality of, but also, saved my life!
