Dr.Bobis is a great doctor but the wait time is really excruciating. I has to wait over 2 hrs just to be seen and this was not a walk-in. Also the medical assistants in the office like to gossip and chitchat about patients which is really unpleasant and an eyesore.

Really really really loved my first visit to this doctor, because of my time with him. But everything else was a nightmare, the wait was RIDICULOUS & by the time I did get seen the nurse who drew the blood wasalready gone. So I did not get the chance to have any testing or blood work done after waiting over 4 hours... but he’s great at what he does, he’s smart & very caring and involved. I will be returning, will just make sure I get the earliest appointment possible to avoid any other long waiting time.

I traveled all the way from Brooklyn for Dr. Bobis. He was both my fathers, and my doctor for a little over 3years in a Brooklyn location. I absolutely love him! He really shows that he genuinely cares about your health,and remembers you too! He takes his time with you which is very rare to find in doctors now. Expect to wait - a long time, but totally worth it.

I left a previous review for Dr. Bobis which I wish I could delete now. I have seen him three times since the first appointment (not all scheduled through Zocdoc). The second time I went to his office, I discovered thatI hadn't even seen him the first time. I was sent in to see a different doctor and no one seemed to notice! The second time, and two subsequent times, I have had to wait 3-4 hours each time. Dr. Bobis told me that the wait is so long because he spends a lot of time with his patients. Spending a lot of time with your patients is laudable but it doesn't explain why he schedules so many people. He complained to me that Zocdoc puts appointments every 15 minutes, but I can't imagine there's not a way to control that. After my last visit two days ago, I have spent a half a day sitting in his waiting room. I won't be returning. Last time I went, I spent some of the waiting time searching this site for a new primary care physician. I think he's a good doctor. He's very direct and he answers questions. He seems to care about his work. But scheduling more people than he can see is an insult. He either doesn't care about making the site work for his patients or he doesn't want to slow the money coming in. It doesn't really matter to me which it is, I'm done waiting.

DR. Bobbys is extremely nice and professional loved him. BUT the office is horrible, I waited over 3 hours to be seen even though I had and appointment. I know is not the doctors fault but the management of this officeis horrible. They allow walk ins with no regards for appointments.

EXTRA long wait times but it’s obvious that’s because Dr. Bobis takes his time and really cares about his patients and I certainly can’t fault him for that. He’s a great doctor and his staff are friendly and kind. I hopethey get their booking in order (they were having trouble with double bookings in the system) but I’ll continue to go because everyone’s so nice and thorough.

Dr. Bobis was a good doctor, but the office was HORRID. I had a 10 AM appointment and I wasn't seen until 12 PM. I continually asked the front desk when I was going to be seen and what was goingon, but it wasn't until I told them that I was leaving that they actually brought me in to see the doctor. It was honestly UNACCEPTABLE conduct. Too bad that a good doctor like Dr. Bobis works in an office that is so completely mismanaged like the one I went into today. I am so totally upset by the situation.

I wait about two and a half hours before I was seen and I went for severe allergies and got sent home with medicine I already had. It defeated the point in me going I think. However, if you have thetime to wait the staff had great bedside manor and the nurse practitioner I saw was very knowledgeable and friendly.

Well worth the wait, he has a busy little office there and it's obvious why! We spent time talking over everything that was wrong with me and talked about what could be going on and the best route to recovery. Inever felt like I was being rushed or like he had anything better to do. I will definitely be returning.

As good as a doctor Dr. Bobis is, the wait time is beyond ridiculous. I have always waited over 3 hours to be seen by the doctor. This is simply not feasible for someone who needs to keep on a schedule.

I never write reviews on any sites, but something is really off here. Dr Bobis seems like a wonderful doctor and because of that, I hesitate to write anything negative, but I would only recommend him to someone with the caveatthat they may be waiting for hours. The reception staff told me it could potentially be 5 hours. After an hour, they assured me I was the next patient, so I stayed and waited another hour and a half. Their booking system schedules appointments 15 minutes apart yet he spends around 45 minutes per patient. A couple of patients got fed up and left. On a lighter note, the waiting room was like a bad movie set in a dingy hotel lobby with a blaring TV, a man snoring, cellphone chatter and a woman beside me having a conversation with herself. I felt like I was at Bellevue.

The wait time is terrible, my appointment was 1:40 pm and wasn’t seen by 4:40 pm. They take their time with you but some of the questions they ask are unnecessary and should only be asked for a check up, notfor the issue you going for. This would save time. The nurse who helped me was very kind and helpful.

I have seen Dr. Bobis three times. Every wait has been more than 90 minutes past the appointment time. He is very thoughtful and easy to talk to and genuinely helpful, but I will not be back. The first wait was95 minutes. The second wait was 2 hours. The third wait was over 3 hours. Worse, I scheduled a followup with him for a week later (which was his idea) to renew my adderall prescription and check out an ear infection and upon arriving the lady at the front desk told me he isn’t in the office today at all. I’m here now, in the waiting room, who knows for how long, to see a nurse so that she can tell him I was here so he can fill my prescription, but I won’t be able to get my ear checked and need to schedule another appointment. Why would I continue wasting hours of my time waiting in this seriously ugly waiting room if I can’t even expect to see the doctor I scheduled an appointment with?

I scheduled an appointment for 9:30am with Dr. Bobis. I walked in, right on time, and sat down to wait. At 11am I left. If you think it is okay to wait for an hour and a half to have ageneral consultation, then this is the place for you. Otherwise, I would try to find somebody who might appreciate your business a little more. Everyone was polite and the office was fine, if a little bit on the homely side, but I felt disrespected by how little it seemed to matter that my entire morning was wasted sitting in a waiting room. I don't expect to get in at 9 30, but I do expect the wait to be less than an hour long when I make an appt, days in advance. No other business could survive this way.

Dr. Fernando was extremely thoughtful and easy to talk to. He strikes me as being very knowledgeable and genuinely concerned with my health. The wait was long, about 90 minutes, and I wasn’t expecting it, but in the future I willbe sure to make time for it since I suspect it’s due largely to his commitment to thoroughly evaluating his patients. In other words, well worth the wait. I would recommend him to anyone looking for someone you can trust to prioritize your health, both mental and physical. I felt genuinely cared for.
