I had an appointment for 1045am and wasn't seen until 2p. Although the nurse and the receptionist were pleasant, the doctor was not very apologetic for the wait time it felt rushed. I waited 3 hrs to be seen for less than 10 min. I will be looking for another primary care doctor

This office has a very friendly staff, and even though busy, has a spacious waiting room that doesn't feel stuffy or sickening like so many other places. The 1.5 hour wait for my appointment was rapidly offset by the best annual checkup I have ever had in my life, conducted by a stellar Nurse Practitioner of the office who was more thorough, enlightening, engaged, than any MD or NP I've ever come across, and made me feel completely comfortable and unjudged. Somewhere else, you can wait the same amount of time to have a fifteen minute once-over. I feel like this is the experience that people seek when they say "I'm going to the doctor for my annual." Thank you all!

I decided to see DR. Bobis based on his great reviews despite the wait time complaints. I thought maybe it was a little exaggerated but boy was I wrong! My first appt was at 10:30am and I wasn't seen until 1pm. My results follow up appt was also scheduled at 10:30am and I am yet to be seen ( it's currently 1pm) to get my results!!! I would have liked to make him my permanent doctor because he is a great doctor and very professional but the wait time is a deal breaker for me. Make sure you take the day off from work or any errands if you are going book him. This is with no exaggeration.

It was quite a wait....but worth it, to see a doctor like Dr. Bobis! He is lovely and really shows concern, plus, he seems to really know what he's talking about! His office staff is lovely as well, and Rosa, who draws the blood and does EKG's, is a real gem! I will definitely keep seeing this doctor.

Pros: Okay. This doctor will be the most thorough doctor you have ever experienced in your life. He will sit with you for an hour going over everything and afterwards you will go through tests, if needed, just to make sure he has as close to a 100% depiction of your health. Never, ever, have I had such a pleasant experience in NYC with a doctor nor have I felt my health was in better hands. Cons: Wait time... Because he treats every patient so diligently. You will be there for hours. Not 1, not 2, maybe 3+ hours waiting. My appointment was at 10: 30 m and I was seen at 1: 30 pm. Bring the lord of the rings trilogy with you, because you might finish it before you're seen but hey, at least you'll be your healthiest self.

Dr. Bobis is the kind of doctor you dream of -- patient, kind, super smart, graduate of one of the finest medical schools, listens well and explains things perfectly. After just one visit I have decided that he will be my primary care physician. The day I met him was a lucky day indeed.. As for the complaints of long waits,-- in New York City long waits are very common. Bring a book..

Again. Great doctor but the wait time is ridiculous. You shouldn’t wait over 2 hours to see a doctor. Especially just to get results which last just a few minutes.

I have never felt more cared for, more listened to, and more respected by a doctor in my LIFE. I’m not sure what his intentions are for getting into medicine but I believe he has a passion for treating people, especially those who may not have access to high quality doctors in Washington Heights. Full disclosure: I waited 2.5 hours to see him. This is not someone you want to see in a time crunch. And to be honest, it’s unprofessional. I have two theories for why this happens: there is a doctor who works in the same practice that rushes patients and averages no more than 15-20 minutes per patient, no matter the issue. Dr. Bobis is newer to the practice and I believe he’s trying to make a statement by being extremely attentive to patients. When I was waiting, alongside 10 other women, the other doctor in the practice was available and had been for a few hours. No one in the waiting room wanted to see him because Dr. Bobis offers far superior care. My other theory: Dr. Bobis appointments are ONLY 15 minutes apart on ZocDoc. They should be spaced at least an hour apart but the receptionist team continues to schedule them too close together. Anyway, there are wonderful doctors in the world and this is definitely one of them. If you’ve been shuffled around by doctors who don’t care about your issues, he is one to see....if you are willing to wait 2-4 hours.

I been seeing Dr. Bobis for about a month and a half. I recommend him to everyone. He is caring, kind, smart, he knows his stuff and over all he makes you feel like there's hope when your sick. I went to him when I was feeling really sick and I have to say after being treated by him; I feel much better these days If you need a doctor then stop looking and go to Dr. Bobis!!

Dr. Bobis was very kind, respectful and informative! I had an amazing experience with his student intern as well. I was surprised by their professionalism while retaining a down to earth, homey vibe. The practitioner who drew blood was also phenomenal! I’m not a fan of needles but I didn’t feel the prick nor when she removed it! My allergy testing hurt more and that didn’t even hurt! And she drew four vials! This office is amazing, fun and friendly! Thank you guys so much! There was a bit of a wait but considering how many patients were in the whole process was very efficient!

Ok so I was there last week (11/21) and wasn’t seen by Dr. Bobis because he was on vacation, I was seen by the Nurse Practitioner, she was awesome. Had a great experience. Today (11/29) my experience was the worse! My appointment was scheduled for 10:15am so I arrived at 10:00am because that’s just how I was taught by mom. Didn’t get seen until 12:35pm!!!!! To me it is extremely unacceptable to make anyone wait that long to be seen specially when they make an appointment!!! What’s the point of making an appointment if you’re not going to see someone at their schedule time! I understand waiting 15 or maybe even 30 minutes, BUT TWO AND A HALF HOURS!?!?!? Come on!!! Mind you Dr. Bobis was out again so I had to see another nurse practitioner!!!

Although it was my first time seeing Dr. Bobis, the reviews on him are true to the T. He is thorough no doubt about that. He takes the time to get to know the history and assess his patients. You can tell he's genuinely concerned for his patients and truly cares. The only downfall is the ridiculous wait time. For someone that has worked at a doctors office before their system in scheduling needs to improve. I know it can be difficult especially if done by zoc doc because it's separate from the office schedule. But overall for it being my first visit with him I can say I am satisfied. I have never had a doctor spent that much time even though he was behind to understand my concerns. Oh and can't forget about the older lady who drew my blood!!! Amazing!!! May god bless her hands. I normally have a bruise the next day after getting my blood drawn but with her you can't even see where the needle went in. Overall I will make Dr. Bobis my primary for good.
