Great doctor! Very through and nice. Listens to concerts and no hesitation to do further test.
Great experience! The office is beautiful and easily to get to. I was called in right at my appointment time. Dr. Pate is amazing! Friendly, informative, prompt. Made me feel at ease and answered all my questions thoroughly and genuinely. Nurses and staff were wonderful too. Everyone was engaged and helpful. Best experience with a GP I've had.
Dr. Pate was kind, welcoming and made me feel very comfortable on my first visit to her practice. She provided me with a great list of referrals and was very thorough. I'd recommend her to my close friends.
Very thorough but efficient appointment, great bedsides manner and easy to talk to. Was a great first visit, will definitely be returning.
She was very sweet and efficient. I would highly recommend her as a PCP.
Dr. Pate was great!! She was so friendly and very thorough. This was my first time to Medical Offices of Manhattan so she took the time to go through my medical history and discuss everything that was concerning me. I felt very well taken care of!
Dr. Pate is exactly what you want in a primary care physician. She took careful note of my overall health and was considerate of my situation. She clearly explained the medical decisions she recommended. Dr. Pate has truly terrific bedside manner and her staff are a pleasure to work with.
Amazing doctor!!! She was very thorough and attentive. She made sure I felt comfortable with the information and walked me thru next steps with great recommendations. I will definitely be returning to Dr Pate and recommending her to my friends/colleagues.
The lobby/check in area was not busy but the nurses looked like they were crazied with busy work. Reception nurses weren't the nicest, go 30 mins before your appointment because you have a lot of check in details to provide. I saw an intern for a majority of my appointment, she was nice and thorough. Doctor was amazing but the wait was too long, it took me 1 hour to finally see the actual doctor and she came in at the end. The lab needs to be cleaned and more professional.
Very through and made me feel comfortable. She will be my PCP from now on.
First time going to see this Doctor and I felt like I had see her before,. her staff were wonderful and they explain step by step what need to be done.
Friendly, thorough, and made me feel completely at ease. I actually didn't HATE being at the doctor for a change!
Very engaged, good listener.
It was a wonderful experience. Dr Pate is friendly and has wonderful bedside manner!
Fantastic doctor experience. She was extremely communicative and thorough; paid attention to details of my concerns and didn't dismiss anything. The visit was efficient but I didn't feel rushed. Called me personally to followup.
Always struggled to find a general physician - Dr Pate fixed that.
I enjoyed every aspect of seeing Dr Pate. She was friendly, thorough in explaining diagnoses, and made sure you had no questions when you left.
I waired for an extremely long tkme even once they called me in. The stwff was insensitive to my cocnerns. I would not go back or refer friends
First visit to a PCP in a number of years for an annual checkup. Registration at Dr. Pate's office was quick and easy and very convenient because of a new device based registration. When I was finally in the exam room Dr. Pate was very friendly and easy to chat with with. After an EKG which revealed and out of the ordinary result she immediately requested an ultrasound just to confirm any suspicions. Overall a great experience for a first timer and I would definitely recommend her to other patients.
Smart, attentive, and thorough staff. A fantastic first time visit.
Very friendly staff and they all show they like helping patients. Thanks!
I really liked Dr. Pate. She was friendly, easy to talk to and reasonable. She spent a good amount of time with me and worked through all my issues. She ordered an ultrasound that I had at the time of the visit and I even got my labs done before I left. Overall I felt really confident in her care.
Dr. Pate was absolutely wonderful. I cannot say enough great things about her. And the rest of the staff were fantastic as well. While they were fast and responsive, I didn't feel rushed. They explained everything along the way and were just lovely. If you are considering seeing Dr. Pate, don't hesitate. I was referred to her by a colleague whom also spoke highly of her. I feel as though I am in great hands!
I really enjoyed how thorough the nurse practitioner was in taking all of my family history and concerns which allowed for a prompt visit with Dr. Pate. The NP was great and instantly made me feel comfortable and taken care of. Dr. Pate was also caring and helpful in referring me for the followup appointments I needed.
I had an excellent appointment with Dr. Pate. She was extremely thorough and took the time to listen to every single issue I was having. She ordered only the necessary tests and did not push medicine because I was unsure. She provided me the information I needed to do my own research. I am looking forward to my next visit in a month!
Dr. Pate and her staff were great! This was my first visit as a new patient and she addressed all my concerns and considering that I am a bit of a hypochondriac, she was patient. Her beside manner was very warm, confident, and efficient. I'll definitely be returning. She was friendly, approachable, and I am definitely satisfied with my visit! On a plus I was called right away by the nurse after I arrived.
Dr. Pate was amazing! It was my first time seeing her and she not only took the time to really listen to my concerns, she asked me a ton of questions and made me feel so comfortable. She even found and was able to run tests for an issue that was completely different than the one I'd come in for - something my former primary care physician (who I'd seen in July and had been a patient with for 10 yrs) never once mentioned to me. I'm so happy to have found Dr. Pate and will continue seeing her.
Great experience from the entire staff. The office is very well organized and people are cheerful and efficient. Dr. Pate is amazingly smart, warm and sharp. I am thrilled!
extremely nice thorough and knowledgeable
Dr. Pate (pronounced pay-t not pah teh) is great, knowledgeable and incredibly empathetic. I went in for an annual physical and she took great care of me. The nurse that took my vitals, blood, and EKG was also great. I trusted them enough to share my troubled psychological past. The only complaint I have against the clinic comes from the way they handled my sign in. This was my first time with Dr. Pate so I made sure to arrive on time. The receptionist had me sign my name and time of arrival on a list. I asked her if there was anything else that I needed to do and she said no. 10 Minutes later she tells me that the forms I had filled out online through Zocdoc were irretrievable and that I needed to fill them out again on a pad. This took me 30 mins. I called Zocdoc and they told me that my forms had been printed earlier; Dr. Pate also had the forms I filled out online. This receptionist was very rude and she lied to me--I wasted 40 mins! She is one of the Asian-American looking ones. Beware that on your first appointment they will waste your time/arrive 30 mins earlier.
Dr. Pate was friendly, thoughtful, and earnest. She clearly cared about making sure we covered all of my concerns, those I knew about and those I didn't, and ensured I left with everything I needed to feel comfortable about my visit. The staff at her office were equally skilled and friendly. Pretty sure I found my new PCP.
She was great! Felt very comfortable with her.
Very knowledgeable and thorough staff. Dr Pate was very friendly and proactive on wanting to rule out / refer to other specialists as needed. Definitely recommend.
Love. Love. Love.
Very thorough, pleasant staff and a good bedside manner. Didn't feel rushed, and a lot of things could be done onsite or very close by, so it was convenient.
I usually dread going to the doctor, but Dr.Pate and her Very thorough, caring and friendly team made me feel comfortable. Positive experience, indeed!
Great nurses and NPs. Thourough annual physical - they did more than any other doctors office I've visited which was reasssuring. Highly recommended. Dr Pate was friendly, easy to talk to and knowledgeable in a lot of subjects we discussed related to my health.
Wonderful, but that's not even enough to describe her!
She is nice and professional but didn't spend a long time trying to diagnose me. Still would go again because it seems as if she knows her stuff.
I really liked Dr. Pate. She was very helpful and understanding, and listened to all my concerns. Her nurse practitioner Sue Zhu was great too. I will definitely be back! My only constructive feedback - after filling out the zocdoc medical history in detail, it wasn't used by the doctor's office and I was asked to provide it all over again when I arrived for my appointment. A big of an inconvenience but not a deal breaker.
It was amazing love her and her staff !
very attentive, informative, caring, patient - spent the time to ask important questions and really took the time to learn and better understand the pt.
Very thorough, kind, and patient. Great support staff - would recommend!
Dr. Pate is one of the best doctors I have seen. She is very kind and very intuitive. She was able to find a problem that I did not know I even had. Recommending her to my friends!
I was immediately comforted by Denise's warm, friendly demeanor and her overall personality. I was addressing a specific issue as well as searching for a new primary care doctor. Denise listened to my concerns and was so patient and understanding. She asked me many questions and I liked that she was not dismissive. She made me feel safe and reassured. I honestly would recommend her to anyone. She certainly understands that personal health can be greatly augmented by positive experiences with a doctor. I am definitely selecting her as my PCP.
Dr. Pate and the whole team was a perfect fit for me, and finding the right PCP! I have the biggest phobia of needles, and cried the whole time but Dr. Pate and her team really made the process comfortable and assuring. The office was well kept and the whole staff were very friendly. I look forward to visits in the future!
She was very kind and helpful! Excellent personality, smiled the entire time and was super friendly.
Raine was professional and even saw me earlier than my appointment, which was clutch for my schedule. Her instructions were on point and effective.
My visit with Dr. Pate was awesome! She was friendly and very thorough. For my first physical in years, she exceeded my expectations and listened to all of my concerns without rushing me or the appointment. The office staff were equally personable. Overall a great experience. Highly recommended!
Appointment was excellent! Everyone I saw was friendly and knowledgable, while keeping the whole experience very quick and efficient. That's generally a really hard balance to strike! I had a series of follow up tests that the doctor recommended, and those were done right away, in office. Saved me the trouble of having to book them and come back in, or go to another location. Note to ZocDoc: I pre-filled all of my forms through the site, but about 30% of my answers didn't seem to go through, as I was asked to reenter them while I was confirming the rest of my information. Not a huge deal, but if it's a quick fix it would probably be helpful for future patients who don't have things like their spouse's SS# memorized
Dr. Pate was so nice and attentive. I went in for a physical and really felt like I was being taken care of. Would highly recommend!
Dr. Pate was very friendly and addressed all of my questions. The office is clean and high tech. All of their forms and devices are digital and automated which is a big plus. Only hiccup was the front desk scheduled an appointment to see a specialist after I already mentioned I had to head back to my office for a meeting and wouldn't have time to meet the appt. I made an attempt to reschedule but was put on hold for so long I had to hang up and leave for my meeting. I received a very rude call from the doctor (at the specialist office which is separate from Doctor Pate) for missing the appt which was unprofessional and could've been avoided....otherwise I had a good experience at this office.
Dr. Pate is so amazing. She always makes a point to make me feel special - like remembering where I work, even what projects I have going on! At the end of the appointment it took me self-control not to give her a hug goodbye! She always explains things to me in a very positive, non-condescending way. She's the best.
Dr. Pate is awesome. She is very nice and put me at ease. Only thing I did not like is having to play phone tag with her office. Everytime I called I would have to leave a message and wait for a call back. I do not know if this is standard practice in medical practices but it was a bit frustrating. I will definitely return to Dr. Pate
Dr. Pate is not only an excellent doctor, but she is surrounded by kind, smart and caring staff. I was treated with respect and a warmth I haven't experienced with other doctors in the city. In addition, the appointment ran on time and the office space was gorgeous. I recommend her as a primary care doctor.
Perfect! She listened very good and asked smart questions to find the issue. She is fast and meticulous. Great experience.
I thought Dr. Pate was excellent. She was kind, interested and approachable. I would definitely continue seeing her. She took my ailments seriously and was very thorough and communicative. I would say I thought it was strange no one asked about my sexuality or more explicit questions about my sex life when I mentioned several times I was coming for an STD test, but maybe next time. Otherwise fantastic.
Dr. Pate was wonderful and immediately put me at ease. I realized I had to write a review after telling several of my family and friends how awesome she was. Thank you!
I really like Dr. Pate and will return. She had great bedside manner and seemed legitimately interested in getting to know me and in making sure I was healthy. They did erroneously charge a co-pay which was quickly voided, but be vigilant about charges. The office was very efficient and all of my follow up items were handled very quickly!
Dr. Pate and her medical team were very prompt and thorough. I had my annual physical with her as a new patient and I would recommend their office to anyone,
Great bedside manner, pleasant personality and attentive to my concerns. Dr. Pate took the necessary steps based on the issues I shared with her. I've since recommended her to other friends and co-workers.
asked a lot of questions and took everything very seriously, very nice and positive
Amazing doctor. Sympathetic, helpful, really warm. It's really apparent that she cares about her patients and wants to help them get to the bottom of their health issues.
Everyone that I saw in the office was very nice, friendly, professional, and "present" (mentally and physically). They seemed very interested in what was happening with me, and getting to the bottom of it even though I was just a first time patient.
She instantly made me feel really comfortable. Our conversation felt very casual and helped me remember details of my, and my families, medical history that I had forgotten when filling out my forms. Excellent bedside manner, and I hope to see her again. --also all of the technicians that I met with were incredible too. A very friendly staff!
Dr. Pate is great. The front office staff leaves a lot to be desired, showing a lack of professionalism and acting in a rude demeanor.
Dr. Pate is amazing. She is so easy to talk to you and is very thorough. She made me feel completely comfortable, almost as if I have known her forever. In addition the rest of the staff were incredibly sweet. Going to the doctor can be daunting but the staff and Dr. Pate made it a very painless experience. I have found my PCP!
This was a pleasant visit from star to finish. The Dr's assistant was kind and warm and made me feel comfortable right away. I had anEKG and Ultra sound on my heart and the women that ran the tests were so sweet and professional! I am so glad I finally found a doctor in NYC
Dr. Pate is great. I highly recommend her. I was seen right away. Her staff was very friendly and helpful. Beautiful office and very clean. Everything seemed very streamlined and organized
Fantastic experience. Big Dr. Pate fan
Very nice staff and awesome doctor. I went in on my first(and only appointment) because I wanted to try a new version of my old medication. (the old medication gave me unwanted side effects, I was wanting to try the new version to see if the side effects were as bad.) After discussing the options over with her, she told me it would be much better to just continue on the old medication, which I didn't agree with, and am still a little upset about. I should have been more assertive, yes, and told her that I absolutely did not want to go back on my old meds, but I did tell her about my old side effects and how much I disliked the drug. Overall, that one disagreement turned me off, but that doesn't mean that she's a bad doctor. She was great to talk to, and so was her staff. The asian nurse assisting her asked me if I had had a bad week, because I seemed a little sad. She then asked me to tell her about it, which was really nice because I don't really get to talk to my friends about my depressive issues. She was awesome, whatever her name was! Loved her.
Excellent service by the entire team. The office has a team approach, which is great because there was no wait time. I really enjoyed Dr. Pate's enthusiasm and warmth! Wonderful practice.
Upon my first visit to see Dr. Pate I was asked to confirm all my documents and information previously filled out on ZocDoc. Paperwork was minimal which is a plus for me! I also opted to store a credit card on file to make check-out a breeze. My vitals were taken by the nurse and I was also seen by the NP to go over some of my family history and issues. They were extremely thorough since this was my first visit (a general health/physical) to get baselines. Dr. Pate was in last but did not rush our time together and was extremely nice and relate-able. I felt like I could talk openly to her which is important to me. I have found my new doctor!
Dr. Pate and the office staff were attentive, helpful, and reassuring. The registration and laboratory process is very smooth, one of the most well organized medical visits I've ever attended!
Dr.Pate has a great bedside manner - she was kind and thorough, and explained all of my tests and results to me clearly and made sure I didn't have any questions.
She was very nice, caring and friendly. She explained everything with great detail. Would definitely recommend.
Dr Pate was great - friendly, informative and pleasant. I'm happy to be a new patient of hers.
So impressed with Dr. Pate and her office. Glad to have found her and am looking forward to seeing her regularly as my primary doctor. Would readily recommend her.
Dr. Pate was wonderful and extremely pleasant. Our visit was thorough and I look forward to building a relationship with her!
I can not say enough about Dr. Pate. If you are looking for a doctor who listens to everything you have to say and makes you feel comfortable and "in it" with you, you will love her. She connects with her patients and treats them like people. She is upbeat and understanding. Every time I see Dr. Pate, I leave feeling better about myself and better about what's going on with my health.
I came to Dr. Pate needing a general physical, but also requiring evaluation for a recently diagnosed condition. She and her entire staff were polite, expedient, and made me feel comfortable. I highly recommend.
Really impressed with everyone I met, from nurse to nurse practitioner to sonographer to Dr Pate. I felt like I was in great hands and btw just found this practice via the very positive reviews on zocdoc.
It was my first time visiting this practice and I had a very positive experience. Both Dr. Pate and her nurse practitioner had excellent bedside manner - very attentive, thoughtful and personable. I could tell the NP had communicated effectively with Dr. Pate before the doctor came to meet me, which made the "hand off" efficient and was a sign of good communication. Dr. Pate also personally provided me the names and contact information of specialists she recommended me to follow up with. I'm confident to continue visiting her as my PCP.
I found Dr. Pate very warm in personality and very thorough as a professional. Had been looking for a great physician. My search has ended.
Dr. Pate and her team were so welcoming and warm on this dreary NYC day. All my questions were answered and I received a thorough and complete physical, without feeling uncomfortable or unsure - which is rare in my history. Thank you, ladies!!
She was very thorough, and asked a lot of questions which I liked. She has a great bedside manner and the office itself runs very well. As a new patient, the check in was fast and easy. Definitely recommend them!
I haven't had a check-up in a very long time, and frankly I've always been a chicken when it comes to going to a doctor's office. With that said, Dr. Pate and her team were very thorough, compassionate, and made it a point to help me get on track to a healthier me. The wait time was minimal, I showed up 15 min early, filled out my paperwork, and in 5-10 minutes I was getting called in. Glad to have found a great doctor finally!
Seriously, one of the best doctor's offices I have ever been to. Every single employee I interacted with was pleasant, professional, and incredibly helpful. Dr. Pate repeatedly came and answered my questions when many doctors would not have even bothered coming in to see me at all. Every nurse or techinican I interacted with was friendly and seemed very knowledgeable. I HIGHLY recommend Medical Offices of Manhattan! Go, go, go!
Dr Pate is funny, warm and welcoming. She instantly put me at ease and was confident and knowledgeable in how she explained things. The appointment started right on time and everyone who worked there seemed efficient and relaxed, so there was no sense of stress to get the patient out the door.
I went for an annual check-up and Dr. Pate was great. The offices were also nice. However, the whole process took 2 hours and 15min. The process consisted of checking in, getting vitals taken, to getting an ekg, to seeing the doctor, and finally getting blood drawn. There was about a 20min wait between each of these steps.
Location: really great and close to the trains Forms: unfortunately their system is not linked to ZocDoc, so I had to re-fill my forms in the office. This is where it got annoying because they made me use some silly electronic pad which wasn't very responsive. Wait Time: my wait time was pretty standard for rural offices. I've become accustomed to being in right away, so having to wait for about 20 minutes wasn't exciting considering I was on my lunch break. Nurses: They were really nice and helpful. Exam: It was super thorough. She actually ended up finding a small heart issue, even though I went in for a routine check up and follow-up for my kidneys. She addressed my concerns and my issues. She did blood work and went above and beyond my expectations and purpose for being there. Overall: Excellent. I'm really happy I found such a great doctor! I'm still so shocked that she went as far as examining my heart, for which I am grateful.
The office is very well run and efficient. I was told to come 15 minutes ahead to fill out forms, which I did. The appointment started right on time. the only surprise was that I saw 3 other staff members before I even saw Dr. Pate. Firat was a tech who took my history and vitals, next was a nurse practitioner who was the person who really did my exam. Then there was a test, then finally, Dr. Pate came to discuss the results of the test and the nurse practitioners exam. But all staff were excellent in their care.
Dr. Pate was great. She was efficient, thorough and very nice. Would definitely recommended her.
Dr. Pate is absolutely awesome! She is extremely approachable and was very fluid in addressing the issues at hand. Not for a second did I feel uncomfortable to ask her any question (no matter how silly), which is CRUCIAL in my opinion when dealing with health concerns. She was compassionate and informative throughout the physical examination process, and explained medical terms clearly to be sure I understood everything that was going on. Highly recommend.
Amazing! Best office I've ever been to and Dr Pate is outstanding, thorough, and very sweet. Highly recommend!!
Great experience besides wait time in the lobby and for the doctor.
Every time I try to do anything it's just a complicated mess. I updated my pharmacy at the last visit and they still sent the Rx to the wrong one (which my insurance doesn't pay for). I've now been without my medicine for a few days because of this and have wasted time running around from pharmacy to pharmacy trying to figure out who the doctor sent my Rx to. I additionally asked for my blood-work to be done at Quest Diagnostics, and they ignored my request and tried to get me to do the testing on-site, which would cost me additional money. My first appointment ever included an EKG which I had never had before and could not afford. When I told the doctor I didn't want another one, they still tried to perform it again. It was only after I told multiple people that I did NOT want that test performed that they finally listened. Communication at this facility is lacking and it's more frustrating than it's worth. Another time, I had an appointment scheduled via ZocDoc and when I showed up, the entire facility was closed. I had to reschedule, wasting time and travel. This is the last time I use this doctor's office. Seeking medical help should not be this difficult.
very personable, knowledgable and caring. would recommend to a friend.
Denise was amazing! So nice and understanding. She was very thorough and helpful. I will say that both times I have visited I ended up being there at least two hours. This past time I went because of illness and a free the exam I was instructed to get an X-ray and quick blood work done. The next day I called for results and the office was extremely rude, unkind, and unhelpful. She wouldn't give me any information. It was frustrating because the radiologist had informed me the X-rays would be sent to my doctor in a matter of hours. Unfortunately, that encounter with the office has really changed my opinion of them, and has made me less likely to go back.
Dr. Pate is wonderful! Would highly recommend her as a Primary Care Physician.
Very friendly and caring. Adresses all concerns and questions. Takes time to get to know patients. Excellent service.
Dr. Pate is great. She has excellent bedside manner and very pleasant. She also takes her time with you. Highly recommend her!
Dr. Pate was pleasant and thorough. She listened to all of my concerns and explained the tests she recommended. Everyone at the office was professional and courteous, and the bloodwork at the lab next door was painless and quick. I would recommend Dr. Pate to anyone looking for a doctor.
Dr. Pate and everyone in the office made me feel so welcome and comfortable - I'm always a nervous wreck when going to the doctor. Everyone paid close attention to my concerns and questions. I would highly recommend!
Dr. Pate is very thorough and makes you feel comfortable right away. She's warm, energetic, and positive with a great attitude. She's a good listener and you can tell she really wants to understand the full picture of your health before she makes any decisions about treatment. I definitely recommend her!
She was very nice and professional. I appreciated her attempt to explain what was going on with my body.
She is a thorough and amazing doctor.
Seeing Dr. Pate was a pleasure!
Very thorough and professional but friendly. I'm an RN so I'm pretty picky about what I like in a provider.
Dr. Pate was so sweet, lovely, and knowledgeable. I felt 100% comfortable and confident choosing her as my PCP.
Denise is so sweet and energetic. Very easy to talk to and made me feel very comfortable confiding in her.
She was amazing. She sat down and actually talked to you instead of running in and out of the room. She answers all your questions and addresses all your concerns.
I had such a wonderful experience with Dr. Pate and the staff. Everyone was very friendly and made me feel at ease. They explained everything in advance and even checked with my insurance first before doing any tests. The appointment took a little long that I expected but I was appreciative that they were so thorough.
I liked Dr. Pate and felt she was a competent physician. This practice makes the mistake of having good medical staff and poor support staff. The front desk staff was rude and not helpful. Website to get test results is not working and trying to get my blood-work results is like looking for a needle in a haystack. Three calls and no return call.
I really liked the doctor and the staff. Very polite and very nice. I got into the room at 3.40 pm and only got to see the doctor herself almost at 5 pm. So if you are trying to see Dr. Pate during you lunch break - probably not a good idea. The wait didn't bother me, because somebody was constantly coming into the room and I had an e-book with me. Highly recommended!
Great atmosphere. One of the cleanest doctor's office I've ever been to. Saw 3 different people, but all were very nice. Dr. Pate recommended me for a physical therapist, and it helped my neck issues out a lot. Very inviting. Loved her. Will def have her and her team as my primary doc!
I liked Dr. Pate and the office, but I had some reservations. Everything was well-organized, modern and professional. I think that I may need to recalibrate my own expectations. A detailed background was done by a nurse. The way the room was set up she had her back to me the whole time, not an ideal situation when speaking about how your parent died. Then a Physicians assistant came in and asked follow up questions and took some measurements, she was the one who thought about which further tests to consider. Finally, the doctor came in to speak with me. She ordered some tests and later came back to interpret results. The EKG was done in the same room. She then referred me to a local place in the NYU system for follow up tests. Dr. Pate seemed sweet and thoughtful, but when she wanted to make recommendations it seemed odd coming from her since she is not the one who had gathered any of the data. However, I took the recommendations because they seemed sensible and cautious. I loved the fact that the office called to give me test results. It has been years since an office did that. With other doctors I have either had to go in or call myself. All in all, I would recommend her and the office.
Very professional and clean environment
Fantastic! Stop perusing and schedule an appointment.
She made me feel safe and relaxed and made sure to go through all the points of the exam with me thoroughly which made me feel at ease.
Dr. Pate was so nice and sweet! She walked in with a big smile on her face and asked detailed questions. I needed to wait for a few minutes between each test, but all staff were very nice and courteous.The office is also very clean and organized. The overall experience was great! I definitely am sticking with Dr. Pate from now on.
Dr. Pate was wonderful! Very sweet and informative. The office was clean, organized and the staff were very polite. Overall it was a very nice experience.
Denise Pate was fantastic! Very thorough and answered all my questions and really took the time explain to me questions I had. I will definitely be returning. The office staff, PA, and nurses are also top notch and very helpful. Definitely recommend!
Very professional and personal. I would highly recommend her!
It was my first appointment with Dr. Pate, so I had to fill out the registration paperwork, otherwise, Im sure they would have seen me "right away". For my first visit, I was very pleased that Dr. Pate took the time to ask me many questions and really dig into my family history. She performed a thorough exam and her energy, attitude and overall bedside manner was very comforting. I will definitely use Dr. Pate for any future needs.
Could not recommend Dr. Pate more highly! She was extremely attentive and informative, and actually took the (significant) time to sit down with me and explain everything I could ever want to know. Went in for a routine check-up and she made sure that I felt 100% comfortable with every test/examination and explained the results. She has a fantastic bedside manner and instantly put me at ease.
Dr. Pate was friendly and took time to go over my concerns. Aside from my orthodontist way back, was one of the best medical professionals, if not the best, I've seen. Genuinely concerned for my overall health and took time to explain, especially since this was my first physical in 7-8 years.
beautiful office, great staff and i loved dr. pate- she is officially my new pcp!
Dr. Pate and all staff were warm, professional and compassionate. I highly recommend!
While the front desk staff is unlikely to give you the warm fuzzies, Dr. Pate's staff was courteous and reasonably efficient from the moment I walked in the door. I went in as a new patient for an annual exam and to get a blood draw for my biometrics (for my insurance). I waited approximately 15 minutes before I was taken to an exam room. The assistant who took my vitals was very pleasant and told me what my blood pressure and pulse were and that they were normal, without my asking, which I appreciated since sometimes they don't say a word and you never really know. The nurse practitioner was also very pleasant but was rather young for my preference as a middle-aged woman and I felt a bit pressured by her to have certain preventative procedures done (mammogram, dermatology scan, etc. ). I relented and agreed to let them do an EKG, which they recommended as general procedure. There was no mention of the result. I was in the exam room for an hour before I saw Dr. Pate but she was the 4th practitioner I saw today (after medical assistant, nurse practitioner, and EKG tech) so there were no excessive wait times when I was in the room alone. Dr. Pate was wonderful. She has a very professional, yet warm and personable manner. She made me feel very comfortable, like talking to a friend. I am new to NYC from California and I was a bit nervous about seeing a doctor who was more brusque than I was accustomed to, but with Dr. Pate there was no need for worry. I didn't have much to say since I was only there for the biometrics, and so I didn't spend much time with Dr. Pate, but I got the feeling that she would have been very willing to discuss any concerns I had, had I had any. We discussed some preventative health measures I might want to consider, but I did not feel pressured by her at all to take action. While I felt pretty neutral to slightly negative about other members of the staff, I would wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Pate! After I saw Dr. Pate, I went right upstairs in the same building for the blood draw, which took about 5-10 minutes. It was really great how easy and quick it was!
Horrible! She was rude and completely uneducated. I would NEVER go back to her again! Worst experience, very unprofessional and has an attitude problem
Dr. Pate is extremely courteous and has an absolutely amazing personality. It is apparent she loves her job and it clearly shows. I would highly highly recommend her and I cannot emphasize that enough.
The whole experience was professional and quick. The team of doctors were efficient, friendly, and happy to field questions. The only hitch was that the preliminary medical information that I submitted on Zocdoc ahead of time had to be repeated for the chart. Dr. Pate is definitely now my primary care doctor.
Very kind, very informative. Highly recommend.
Dr Pate was enthusiastically recommended to me by a colleague, and I am so glad I went to her. I am a nervous, high maintenance patient and probably every doctor's office worst nightmare, but Dr. Pate and her staff kept me at ease throughout my visit. The exam was very thorough and nothing felt rushed, and everyone was warm, professional and patient.
Everyone is competent and friendly, from the women at the front desk to the nurses to Dr. Pate. I highly recommend!
Dr. Pate and her staff were excellent! All were very kind, took the time to listen and made great recommendations. Dr. Pate is down to earth, cheerful and proactive about addressing my symptoms. I highly recommend this practice. The office is clean and modern and the administrative staff was friendly. The entire process was easy and positive.
Although Dr. Late was very nice and helpful, I felt her nurse practitioner ordered several unnecessary tests while I was at the office. I'm all for precautionary testing, but I don't want to be poked and prodded just so they can bill my insurance.
Dr. Pate is super friendly and very patient!
The entire team was great! Everyone was nice and helpful. Dr Pate and NP Libby were amazing - answered all my questions. Highly recommended!
The office is clean and nice. The receptionist does not even look up the computer to greet you and was rude. Did not really took the time to explain to you anything. More busy with the computer and answerin get phone. When I paid in cash the first thing she said was She does not have any change and that was it. Kind of ruins the vibe of the place. NP and MD was nice and professional.
She was very sweet and personable.
Very thorough. Spent most of the time with nurse practitioners but they were very knowledgeable and spent time answering questions.
Dr. Pate is amazing. Her bedside manner was excellent. So friendly and uplifting. Made going to the doctor actually enjoyable. She was thorough and professional while still being warm and relatable. Highly recommended!
Dr. Pate was great. It was my first time there and the check in, check out process was very efficient. The facility is clean and well organized and I was pleased with my over all experience.
Despite the wait, Dr. Pate was great!
Denise is kind, knowledgeable, and thorough. I would recommend her to friends and family. The office could do a better job of following up and getting back to voicemails in a timely matter, but that's on the clerical side.
She is by far the most thorough and least intimidating doctor I've ever seen. She was amazing--I told all my co-workers about her and they are all going to make appointments with her.
Ecellent! Highly recommended.
Dr. Pate and her team were highly professional, receptive to my needs and approachable. I had an EKG, Allergy test and a sonogram of my heart all done by different members of the medical team in addition to my yearly physical. The staff made sure to check with my insurance before moving forward with any diagnostic test that might not have been covered. Huge plus. Additionally, the staff made me aware of accurate wait times for each diagnostic test and made sure that was a time frame I was comfortable with before proceeding. Each of the staff members were thorough and took the time to explain the procedures while giving me a breakdown of different things we were seeing in the images. Doctor Pate came in at the end to go over the results and talk about a plan moving forward. I was able to get bloodwork done up stairs and they also have a dermatologist come in to the office twice a month, so if their location is convenient for you it could mean less running around.
Dr. Pate is fantastic! I've found my new GP.
She is a great doctor! The staff is very nice and helpful too!
dr pate was fantastic - her whole 'entourage' of nurses were so kind and knowledgeable. dr pate was also the first to notice that i have a heart murmur so it was extremely comforting to know how thorough she was on my first visit. have already recommended her practice to my colleagues!
The Receptionists were rude, however I think that her assistants were very nice, although they do most of the "grunt" work. I was there for almost three hours from start to finish and after being seen by her assistants, who performed the tress tests, etc. I ended up waiting close to 30 minutes before I saw Dr. Pate, for which I saw her for about 10 minutes. With that being said, she is a very nice Doctor and she was very apologetic about the long wait. I'm in my mid 40's and I'm used to a more "hands-on Dr" Sadly, I'm not sure if I will be seeing her again.
She was friendly and reassuring. I'd want to continue seeing her.
Love this office! They are very thorough and attentive
Everyone at the practice was friendly, from the receptionist to the doctor. It was the most thorough annual physical I've had. Every issue was answered.
Very helpful and friendly staff. Took the time to go through all necessary steps for new patient intake and physical exam. Dr. Pate is very bubbly and welcoming, and her PA Yelena was also great. Extremely convenient to have the lab right upstairs for any necessary bloodwork.
Very impressed with Dr. Pate and her staff. Did not feel rushed. Appreciate that my prescription was immediately filled and available by the end of the day. Nice office.
She's awesome, as is her whole team. I was a new patient so was already nervous, and I was going in for a whole host of issues. So given that I had to sit for at least an hour, naked, in a tiny hospital gown, I couldn't have been more comfortable. Everyone was so nice and I was reassured that my concerns and potential ailments would be addressed. We were going to figure this out together. Really taken care of.
Had 2 appointments. First one, saw Dr Pate for 5 minutes of a half-hour appointment. Mostly small talk. The RN Joseph was very good, but my interaction with Dr Pate was minimal (and consisted mostly of small talk). Second appointment was a follow-up for a specialist referral. I was a series of questions by a series of nurses, did not see a Doctor, and was given the name of a specialist but no referral since my insurance doesn't require it. At best I would consider this a walk-in clinic, rather than Primary Care Doctor office.
I felt in capable and caring hands.
Dr Pate is patient and thorough. Great bedside manner; develops patient relationships.
I loved everyone at this practice although Dr. Pate did not perform the check up. She came in at the end to explain the results to me.
Very good Doctor...the staff was courteous and proffesional..very complete physical.
Wonderful, down-to-earth doctor who took great lengths to explain everything. Helpful, kind, and efficient staff. Too long of a wait.
I've been looking for a doctor in new york for a while now, hoping to find a replacement for my wonderful hometown doctor. Dr. Pate was amazing and I'm so glad I found her.
She was really great. Very thorough. Would recommend her to anyone!
She and her team are amazing and very thorough. Made me feel very comfortable through the entire visit, were very friendly and easy to talk to, referred me to other doctors and everything was explained to me. I'm glad to have found this medical facility.
She was great. Very nice and very thorough. She also works with a very nice staff. All of the ladies took care of me and were very professional.
Nice, easy to talk to, answered all my questions.
Dr. Pate is amazing. I can't recommend her enough. She is friendly, compassionate, professional and most importantly will get down to business immediately. I came to her after injuring my back and had been in pain for at least 3 weeks. She immediately ordered an MRI, referred me to a spine specialist and then started me on Physical Therapy. Her entire time worked efficiently and quickly to get me the treatment I needed asap. I'm glad that I don't have a great need to see a medical doctor on a regular basis but I am so glad that she is there when I need her!!
I couldn't be happier Denise and her entire staff were courteous, professional, caring and helpful. I will recommend her to my friends and family.
very kind, listened and responded to my concerns thoughtfully. I'll definitely be back.
Very professional, kind and good listener. The Doctor made you feel comfortable even in an uncomfortable situation. She reviews all the records even after I left and she made sure I follow indications correctly. Thanks, Denise.
This was the absolute first time I have EVER felt completely comfortable in a doctors office. I highly reccommend Dr. Pate and all her staff.
She's very nice.
Dr. Pate is really friendly and great!
Dr. Pate has a lovely attitude and shows genuine concern for her patients. The entire staff I encountered were generally friendly and helpful. The only disagreeable part of my experience was the wait, especially around blood work (if that's applicable to you).
The office and staff is great as well as Dr. Pate and I am so happy chose to see her.
Dr. Pate was great. She did a through exam and her excellent bedside manner made me feel very comfortable. I appreciated that she was conscious of my insurance before making any diagnostic referrals to avoid unnecessary exams. She was genuine and empathetic. After my appointment I felt reassured that I made a great selection in my new PCP.
The sign in process was extremely efficient with the use of tablets. All the staff was fantastic and very helpful. The nurses were very respectful and upbeat. Dr. Pate was fantastic, energetic, and very nice. I would highly recommend this office and Dr. Pate. The facility is top notch and very clean.
Great experience ...
Incredibly thorough! She diagnosed a health issue that I have had for years, but was totally unaware of, and so did all other doctors. I only didn't enjoy to intern that she had, she ran through all of her questions so quickly, that it overwhelmed me and created a great deal of anxiety. Dr. Pate came later, and was wonderful though. Fortunate to engage with her.
Everyone at Dr. Pate's office was friendly and efficient and did their jobs well. I liked Dr. Pate a lot. She is incredibly personable, approachable and knowledgeable. I'm very glad to have found a new PCP!
Denise was wonderful! Really caring bedside manner and left no stone unturned in her questioning and follow up tests. Appreciated having my concerns taken seriously and an ally in the diagnosis and treatment process.
Mostly saw/dealt with PAs. They were fantastic. Dr. Pate is great, too.
I was really pleased with my visit and happy to have found a primary care doctor. Both Dr. Pate and the nurse practitioner I saw before were very down to earth and thorough. Answered all questions and made the whole experience enjoyable.
Very professional and energetic team. Answered all of my questions and was in-and-out in a reasonable time given the nature of the visit. My only qualm was that all of the info that was filled-out via ZocDoc (family info, insurance info, etc.) had to be done again for their records once I arrived. Why can't this be sent by ZocDoc to the practice?
Dr. Late and the nurse practitioner was great. My only gripe is the ultrasound tech took forever.
The wait time was long, took some time to be seen, but Doctor Pate was great and I LOVED the nurses.
My visit was great.
I have always had an issue with finding a primary care doctor. Dr. Pate is so thorough, compassionate, and so caring! She's not like other doctors that just wants to shoo you away. She was very informative, she took the time to explain and answer all my concerns. I had a list of 10 questions and she was so patient and knowledgeable. She's excellent and the office is excellent and well mannered.
Dr. Pate is a down-to-earth and charismatic physician. It is evident that she truly cares about her patients. Her staff are friendly and helpful.
I wanted to change my long-term primary care provider because it often took 2-3 months to get an appointment, there was always long in-office wait times, and I felt that she disregarded many of my concerns as well as my family's concerns. That was not the case at this office. The front desk check in was easy and efficient and I was taken to an examination room within 5 minutes of completing the paperwork. The entire staff, from the receptionists to ultrasound technicians, to Dr Pate were very kind, made you feel comfortable, and saw me in a timely fashion. Dr Pate has excellent bedside manner, listened to and addressed all of my concerns. I didn't feel rushed at all. I came in for a physical and I was truly delighted to note she was providing comprehensive and collaborative care that is often mismanaged within primary care these days. I also have to commend the PA Yelena who was the initial provider. She took a thorough medical history and examination, had wonderful bedside manner, and seemed like a very competent care provider.
She was really cool and thorough.
Dr. Pate and her staff were friendly, efficient and very professional. My first appointment as a new patient was great and I look forward to remaining under her care. Highly recommended!
I'm 31 years old and been to a ton of doctors - this was probably the best experience I've had - every part of it
She is very personable and intelligent. Completely trust her medical judgement and diagnosis.
I think she is a fine committed and caring doctor. Communications through the office are rather difficult however.
Dr Pate was absolutely amazing! It was my first time seeing her and she'll definitely be my primary care doctor from here on out! She listened and genuinely cared. She explained each step thoroughly and she really had a grip on things!
Discret, professional ,trait forward .. The way I like it!!!
I'm glad that I am able to continue my relationship with Dr. Pate, who was my primary physician at NYU and now I'm seeing her at her new office on E. 51 St. Dr. Pate's personal warmth and compassionate attitude, combined with her medical expertise, are the reasons I've followed her uptown and continue to see her as my primary physician.
Great staff and great care!
She was great! She's a realy good dr. I live her!
This was an amazing experience from start to finish. I was seen right away. Check in was a breeze. Absolutely every person I encountered was warm and treated me kindly and professionally. Dr. Pate is lovely, personable, warm and extremely thorough. I needed a prescription renewed and my pharmacy texted me that it was ready while I was still at the doctors office!! I have found my new PCP!!!
Dr. Pate and her NP, Lauren, are phenomenal. They always take the time to have real conversations and always listen to my concerns. They respect my time, try to avoid multiple trips, and respect my autonomy. They are compassionate and allow me to be involved in my care. I am so thrilled I found this team!
Pleasant experience. Staff was nice and helpful. Dr Pate and her PA Yelena were superb. Office was clean and up to date. Phreesia electronic sign-in was smooth as well.
Dr. Pate is thorough, kind, and caring. She took her time and listened to me. As soon as I was taken in, someone was with me the entire time, I barely waited and had all tests done in the same room with no wait time. Everyone from the front desk to the blood work team was kind and knowledgeable. Very excited to have a new primary care physician that I enjoy going to.
Highly recommend Dr.Pate as a PCD
Dr. Pate is really great. She truly cares about her patients and is very personable.
Dr. Pate is one of the only Doctors I actually want to leave a review for. Her and her staff were really wonderful, and complete professionals. I'm glad I finally have a doctor I can trust to go to that I know will listen to my concerns and take the time to conduct a thorough examination. It was a real relief to talk to her and her staff.
Great staff and Dr. Pate is a delight. It was my first time at the office and meeting her, and it was just a comfortable and seamless interaction. Not only did I feel comfortable in her presence but she addressed my concerns and handled them with professionalism and ease. Truly caring and knowledgeable. An absolute delight. One of the best docs I've come across.
This was my first appointment with Dr. Pate and she is just as nice as can be! I had my yearly physical and she was very thorough and answered all of my questions. In addition, the office was very efficient in terms of checking-in and processing New Patient forms and it seemed like everyone working there was on the same page. Some practices struggle with effective communication, but I had to see several different people for a variety of tests and everyone of them knew what was going on and didn't rely on me to tell them why I needed a test or what test I was supposed to get next.
Dr. Pate was very pleasant and helpful, and so were the other members of her team. Her examination was thorough, and she addressed all of my concerns. I would definitely recommend her.
It was really good! I am a new patient and had a annual check up and it was a very thorough check up!
I was very nervous to go to the doctor given my medical history, but Dr. Pate made me feel super comfortable immediately. I had a lot of questions but she answered all of them and was super patient and kind. I loved how she took every question I had seriously and I never felt rushed. So glad I found myself a doctor!
The nicest staff I have ever met in a doctor's office! I didn't even mind the long wait they were so nice. The offices are new and beautiful too. Dr. Pate is great.
So glad to have been able to move over from NYU Langone to MMC....
Excellent. For the very first time in my life I felt someone care about my health complaints. All her team was friendly, professional and helpful.
Very friendly, super clean office and great staff!
Very Professional and respectful staff. Every person who attended to me was very polite and friendly!! Dr. Pate was very helpful. She gave me the answers that I needed for my treatment and was very good at helping understand my situation. It's been a while since I've met a Doctor that showed and made me feel that they genuinely care. Dr. Pate is amazing!!
Very professional and good bedisde manner
I went for a travel consultation with Dr. Pate since this was listed as a service she provides. I was disappointed when I got there and the physician's assistant did the consultation and all she seemed to do was look up the info on the CDC website and ask me what my travel book recommends. I guess I was expecting some more expertise. I then waited a long time for someone to come back and give me the shot. This time it was the doctor. The doctor, the PA, office staff and the medical assistant were very nice and helpful. For travel consultation, It just wasn't the kind of expert experience I had pictured, but perhaps my expectations weren't realistic.
The experience was great and comfortable.
Dr. Pate was lovely. I came in with a couple of concerns and she addressed them thoughtfully and clearly. The staff was friendly as well.
I've had a fear of doctors and avoided them for years. From the moment she walked in I knew I would be in good hands.she listens to your concerns and gives great advice
Being Australian I was a little apprehensive about finding a doctor in a new city and hearing so many horror stories about the medical system in New York. I really had fantastic service at the center from the front desk to Dr Pate. She is really lovely and personable and I highly recommend seeing her for whatever you need. She makes you feel very comfortable and is thorough and extremely caring.
Great bedside manner, very warm, and listened to my questions and concerns. Nice experience.
This was my first time going to the doctor in a long time. I waited less than 10 minutes after signing my consent form to be seen. I did see quite a few professionals (4), but the visit was extremely thorough. Dr. Pate was very professional, but also very friendly! Hard to come by in NYC. She was open to answering all of my questions, and easing my concerns.
Dr. Pate was super friendly and had a great bed side manner. I didn't feel rushed at all not mention she was very thorough. I would definitely recommend.
She is very nice. Highly recommend.
She took the time to speak to me when I was going through a very tough time. Great office! Great doctor.
Dr. Pate is professional, thorough, and has helped me immensely. She's the best!
Wow! I had such an amazing experience. Dr. Pate's entire practice is so nice and thorough. I don't remember the last time I had such a pleasant experience at physical examination. I highly recommend Dr. Pate. I look forward to booking future appointments with her.
All the staff was very friendly and easy to talk to. They all really showed genuine concern including Denise Pate and when the conversations got technical with her and her staff, they stunned me with their knowledge. A++++ all the way!
This practice is absolutely fantastic. I am rarely, if ever, compulsed to reivew anything, but felt my experience extremely worthy of doing so. The staff was completely thorough, friendly, and put me at ease after having not been to the doctor for quite some time. I highy recommend Dr. Pate and her team.
She was great! Dr Denise Pete came only at the end, but all the other physicians were really professional, personable and made me feel very comfortable. I got a lot done during my appointment, which was great since I didn't have to waste any times making appointments for ultrasounds, blood work, etc.
Dr. Pate is amazing, I will continue to see her. She makes you feel comfortable and as if you've always been her patient.
My appointment with Doctor Pate was excellent. She didn't rush me, answered my exhaustive questions, and even checked if my insurance would cover various procedures. I am so pleased to have finally found a doctor in NYC I feel good about. I felt no judgment and she took the time to explain what everything means.
Warm and empathetic physician. Felt well taken care of by Dr Pate and her staff.
My experience was great! Everyone from the front desk receptionist, the PA, doctor and blood work tech were very friendly and knowledgeable. The facilities were clean and I did not spend too much time waiting around. I will definitely be making Dr. Denise Pate and the group at Medical Office of Manhattan my primary care team.
Overall very good! I liked everything about my visit.
I really appreciated that when i was super sick with an infection/flu and called the doc office experiencing dizziness and other symptoms while on medication, Dr. Pate herself was the one to call me back. She always made time in a busy schedule for me, which is a first in my experience with GPs.
Dr.Pate is the greatest Doctor I ever had...She is what every Doctor should be. "The real deal".
Loved Dr. Pate. She was extremely friendly and made me feel very comfortable. Beware of the lab that she sends you to if you need bloodwork...there is zero privacy and if you need to lay down like I do there is no option for that. Dr. Pate was really helpful though and is allowing me to go anywhere I want for my bloodwork.
I have finally found a Primary Care Physician I like! What else can I say. Dr Pate and all her assistants are very caring and professional. There was a little bit of a wait, but it was worth it.
Really professional and friendly staff!
I had a great experience with Dr. Pate and all of her staff. The office is clean and modern. The nurses and PAs are very efficient and pleasant. I had not had a physical in about 10 years prior to this appointment. They asked thorough questions about my medical history, gave a thorough examination, and painless immunizations. I am the ultimate wimp when it comes to shots and blood and Dr. Pate convinced me to do them and caused me zero pain. Very pleased with the overall experience.
Dr. Pate is great and so friendly, I definitely recommend her. Her PA, Yelena, is also wonderful. I ended up needing an echocardiogram so the tech came right to the room, which was very convenient.
Dr. Pate and her nurse practitioner were very good. They were kind and knowledgeable and professional. I got in quickly, which is always a plus. I highly recommend this office and this doctor.
Dr. Pate is amazing. I went in with abdominal pain, and though we haven't figured out the cause yet, she's been thorough, responsive, and, above all, kind. I have some anxiety issues, and she was completely understanding. I would highly recommend her as a GP to anyone, especially women, looking to establish one in NYC.
Everyone was INCREDIBLY nice from front desk to assistant to Dr. Pate. Definitely recommend! Wait time was not bad at all either, a big plus when you're working.
My vist with Dr. Pate was very professional and very personal.
(Excuse all spelling), Raquel- she took my vitals and medical history & Jelena- the medical assistant who pretty much did my entire check up were great! Very sweet and made me feel comfortable. I saw Dr. Pate for just about the last 2 minutes before I left for my bloodwork. Although she was very friendly and nice, all she did was talk to me for 2 minutes and listen to my breathing. She said she already spoke to Jelena and everything seems good. The visit was thorough and they seem to have cool updated medical devices to check temp and BP, but I do wish I had more time with the Dr. Instead of the medical assistant.
Spent 2.25 hours there getting a physical. Talked to 4 different people that asked me the same things. Dr. Pate is very friendly and knowledgeable, but I don't want to come back to this place. It feels too impersonal.
Sh had been my Dr. for years and I absolutely love her.
Dr. Denise Pate and her staff took such good care of me. I hope my insurance works with her forever :)
After a few issues with my primary doctor, I was looking for a new primary but Dr. Pate happen to be out that day so I was seen by another doctor. I felt the visit was a bit rushed but I'm sure the doctor had a very full plate under the circumstances. I have had to call a few times to get a response. (in fact still waiting for a call back from yesterday morning) but have decided not to return and will continue with my original primary doctor for now .
The support staff is incredibly helpful and polite (unlike many other medical offices I have experienced in NYC)! They also "squeeze" me in when feeling ill and helped me out of a "tight spot" when I was sick (related to travel). The PA is also great! Even when the Dr. is very busy, I feel comfortable seeing her instead.
Great! I'm very happy to have her as my doctor.
Amazing. Treated like family. Upbeat doctor and friendly staff.
Great made me feel extremely comfortable.
Dr. Pate is always incredibly thorough and very knowledgeable. She is very warm, attentive and has a wonderful personality. She obviously cares very much about her patients.
Dr. Pate was helpful and even drew me a diagram to explain further. I appreciate a doctor that's willing to do that. The physician's assistant Yelena was also great. She was personable which made the visit more comfortable. I think the front desk assistants need to be more organized though because they kept opening the door to see who was in the room (like they couldn't remember). Also it would be nice for them to say hello or good morning. The lady who was there when I arrived ignored me completely and then asked a coworker to help me because she was "too busy." It was rude and a bad first impression, especially since I'm a new patient. Ultimately, the doctor is what I care about - and I like Dr. Pate. But how you're treated upon arrival at the front desk definitely matters too.
I love Dr Pate and will follow her all over the city. Her new office is very nice.
Dr Pate was very nice, however, I do not know if I would return. I originally went in because of extreme fatigue and saw 3 nurses before seeing the doctor. They did cardiac ultrasound and ECG because of chest pains (that I had linked to anxiety). In the end, it was anxiety. I felt like it was a lot of unessecary testing and time for the doctor to see me and tell me everything was fine, but she recommended seeing another doctor.
All the staff was very helpful and efficient.
Ok overall, but some billing issues.
Dr; Pate was her usual concerned and thorough self. Unfortunately, the technicians who were to do tests on me were very busy, which extended the visit much longer than would have been ideal.
She was amazing, she takes her time with You and she is really sweet
I had an great experience with Dr. Pate at Medical Office of Manhattan! After I checked in, I had a short five minute wait in the lobby. The PA that I saw before Dr. Pate was friendly and thorough. Dr. Pate was warm, knowledgeable, and an excellent listener. She articulated her thoughts and my diagnosis clearly and with user friendly language. I did not feel like she was rushed at all. I recently moved to New York, and, after my positive experience with Dr. Pate, I know that I've found my PCP!
Dr. Pate was great, but unfortunately it took a long time to be seen, which is not conducive to a lunch break doctor appointment.
She was very thorough. Excited I found a new PCP I love!
So far, so good. I enjoyed speaking to Dr. Pate and the NP, Joseph, who both have great bedside manner. I look forward to seeing them again. Staff are very professional in this office, which happens to be brand new (still waiting to receive their artwork). The office policy is to keep your credit card on file, and they use the "Phreesia" data entry tablets so that patients enter their own data into the client database.
Dr. Patebis is my PCP from NYU, very happy to have followed her.
Fantastic. By far the best doctor experience I've had since moving to the city 3 years ago. She seemed very knowledgeable and friendly. Minimal wait time. They were able to get me in for a CT scan the same day, as well. Everyone who works there was great. Definitely recommend.
I actually met with one of the office's PA's. She was fantastic, but the office was not run very well. I had to wait 45 minutes after the scheduled time of my appointment to be seen.
Dr. Pate is very patient and super friendly.
I was extremely impressed with everyone that I saw during my visit. From the receptionist at the start, to all of the techs I saw, and especially Dr. Pate. Her bedside manner is fantastic, and she takes a lot of time to explain issues and procedures, and is happy to answer all questions. All of the techs I saw (I had two minor procedures done in the office) were very professional as well. They introduced themselves, and also very clearly stated what they were going to do before doing it. Outstanding. Thank you!
I highly recommend Dr. Pate and the office. She's excellent, thorough, thoughtful and helpful.
I first met with a nurse who was not friendly and had poor bedside manners; she was not very professional and did not make me feel comfortable knowing this was my first time visiting. The second doctor was the physician's assistant who was extremely nice and asked a ton of questions. He was very thorough and wanted to make sure we covered everything that I had concerns about. When Dr. Pate finally came into the room, we spoke for a few minutes but she seemed rushed and didn't have time to speak with me regarding my visit. In the end it worked out that I really liked the second doctor who saw me, but since I had originally requested Dr. Pate I was disappointed how the visit was handled.
She was incredible! Knowledgeable, caring, she clearly explained her thought process and possible diagnosis options and engaged me as a partner is discussing a range of tests, procedures etc. She was very warm and approachable and encouraged and thoughtfully addressed any questions or concerns I had. She took extreme interest in understanding my medical history, symptoms, and lifestyle goals (I am currently training for the NYC Marathon). I would highly recommend her to family and friends.
She had excellent bedside manner. Listened intently to my concerns and explained everything very well. Highly recommend.
So happy to have found my PCP!
Dr. Pate is a knowledgeable and friendly doctor.
Dr.Pate is a very good doctor. She is cheerful and polite. She literally saved my life. I was limping for a week - it turned out I had a big piece of glass in my foot. Dr. Pate removed it quickly with a needle. She is also prompt with her responses to exam appointments and test-results inquiries.
She was friendly and listened to my concerns.
Dr. Denise Pate is great! She was very patient and thorough. I had a question about vaccines and she took her time to answer and also double check online to make sure I needed the vaccine for a specific country. She never rushed through the appointment which I appreciated.
I went in for an annual physical. The staff was friendly and thorough - they answered all of my questions. I was very pleased with my appointment and would highly recommend them.
Overall I had a positive experience with Dr Pate, however I had to wait a lot at every stage. I had to wait to be seen, then wait to have my info taken, then wait for the physicians assistant, then wait for the sonogramist, then wait for the Dr to finally see me, then wait for the blood test, then wait for a referral..and on and on. When you have to wait for at least 20 minutes at each step, it sucks up a ton of time. All told, my appointment took 3.5 hours and I was not a complicated case by any means so be prepared to get settled and hang out for a while.
Great service to have all the checkups and blood drawing facility in one office.
The problem is the medical practice's forced protocols. They will require you to sign a binding contract to make you pay for anything beyond your insurance's responsibility. What is the meaning of accepting one's insurance if you force people to give their credit card to pay the difference? Are doctors becoming like hotels where you have to give your credit card to use their minibar? If one wants to extort people one should not deserve to be called a doctor.
Dr. Pate was very warm and thorough. She made me feel extremely comfortable during the entirety of my visit. Will use her as my GP going forward. Highly recommend!
The staff is super friendly and I felt like they did a thorough physical. Really like this place.
Highly recommend. Dr. P and her stuff very extremely polite and effective.
This is more a comment on the nature of the American health care system. I came in for chest pain and cough, it should have been a 20 minute exam and an X-ray. I ended up with a EKG, ultrasound of my heart and carotid artery, most of which was done by the physician's assistant. Dr. Pate saw me for maybe 45 seconds. While I have great insurance, which is why I'm sure these these were run, it as a tad excessive.
I think Dr. Pate is awesome! She was very through and friendly.
Great office, very professional staff, thorough visit. Dr. Pate is just awesome. Making her my new PCP as a result of this visit.
Excellent, start to finish. Support staff was great too. Just went in for a physical.
She was very nice and she answered any questions I had. She's a very sweet lady
Very attentive and thorough!
Very personable and made me feel very comfortable.
Great...went for sore throat today...going back next week for a long overdue physical
Well I didn't spend most of the time with Dr. Pate. I spent most of it with her nurse practitioner, Maria but she was lovely.
Dr. Pate is very professional and knowledgeable. My experience with her was very pleasant. She listened to my concerns and offered her recommendations with lots of explanations. She took her time to answer my questions. She also explained step by step why she recommended having certain tests and exams done prior to writing some prescriptions.
As I had just lost my doctor of 10 years, I was hesitant to be seen by a new person. Dr. Pate was comfortable, and answered all of my questions as we established the "getting to know you" dance. She made feel very confidant in the decision I made when I picked her.
Denise was smart and friendly! I would recommend her to anyone for her professionalism and how she takes the time to fully explain everything that a patient should know.
Dr. Pate and her assistant(resident?) were very good. She had a good bedside manner. Her assistant (also a doctor?) was extremely knowledgeable. However, the wait was very long and in addition, they had an intake procedure on portable tablets, which required the patient to sign some contracts that made me fundamentally uncomfortable. They also seem to have a standard procedure of putting you in one of those hospital gowns, which is not pleasant.
My expectations were truly exceeded at Dr. Pate's practice. While the front staff was just okay, Dr. Pate and her P.A. were absolutely excellent. They were incredibly friendly and very thorough. I feel like my primary care exam here was more thorough than any exam I've ever received in the past. They answered all my questions and concerns without rushing me. I feel like I got very individualized attention. Also, when my pharmacy was being slow, they went above and beyond to continue to push my medication through. I highly recommend.
Very kind doctor, and assistant. I'm switching to have her as my PCP. Outstanding patience, friendliness, professionalism, and a very interpersonal approach.
I love Dr. Pate! She is thorough, trustworthy and very easy to talk to. I have been seeing her for going on 4 years and I would recommend her to anyone.
Loved Dr. Pate and Dylana, the NP. I will definitely be going back!
Dr. Pate is wonderful! So caring and genuine. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
Dr. Pate is very knowledgeable, attentive and warm and will take the time to answer your questions. She has a wonderful, friendly demeanor which makes it a pleasure to be one of her patients.
Dr. Pate was lovely but the visit itself was much longer than I anticipated. I arrived 15 minutes prior to my appointment and waited for a while to be seen; then, I had to wait an additional ~30 minutes to have my blood drawn. Apparently many things were double-booked. None of this was Dr. Pate's fault - the office was just incredibly busy and there needed to be more staff helping with the blood drawing process.
Denise was great, attentive, energetic and easy to talk to. She said she would have a referral for me and had one by the end of our session. Very efficient!
Excellent first visit with Dr. Pate. She is very thorough and really met every expectation I had for the appointment.
I was very impressed with the entire medical staff/office. They are professional as well as caring. The level of customer service is superior!
I was several minutes late but did not have to wait at all, and as always, Dr. Pate was genuinely interested and kind about my health issues.
My visit with Dr. Denise Pate was great. She made me feel very comfortable. She was incredibly nice, sweet and very knowledgeable. I will definitely keep her as my doctor and would recommend her to my family and friends.
Dr. Pate is awesome! She has a great personality and energy around her that makes you feel at ease. She was also super knowledgeable and helpful with any questions I had. Highly recommend!
Dr. Pate is a wonderful doctor! Wonderful listener and very compassionate. I have never had a primary care physician who I felt so comfortable with right away. She has quickly become my long-term doctor! I recommend her highly.
Dr. Pate was very thorough. She answered all of my questions, went through complete family history and was able to pick up on things she found concerning that she wanted to look into just to be sure. She was very kind and her bedside manner was great. She was professional but also was relatable on a "human" level (it was very easy to talk to her and be open with her). I've found my primary care physician!
She was great and very personable. I really enjoyed that she was so thorough and it seemed like she really took her time and asked questions. However, the nurse that took my blood seemed so rushed and short- definitely did not make it a pleasant experience.
She was literally the nicest doctor I've ever had. I was only there for a new patient exam, but she was pretty thorough. I'll happy to finally have a doctor!
Great annual check up visit. Dr. Pate was super easy to talk to and put me at ease, since it has been many many years since I had a regular doctor visit. The was almost no wait to see her (less than 5 mins) and the nurses and desk staff were also very nice/helpful!
Very friendly and offered practical suggestions for improving my health
I get nervous around new doctors, but Dr. Pate was lovely and kind and made me feel very relaxed. I highly recommend her!
Very impressed with my first appointment with Dr. Pate. She was very professional, friendly, and thorough. The office staff were polite and friendly. Highly recommend this doctor and clinic!
