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.

He is an awesome doctor who communicates well and thoroughly answers any questions. The only problem is the long wait... appointment times don’t really seem to matter, I hope they can improve here!

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?

The wait time at this office is terrible and kind of cruel to people. They need to learn a better way of scheduling so they not getting yelled at by patients loosing their patience. Otherwise once you’re in and seeing the Dr he’s great and very nice.

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.

Horrible Experience. The doctor was kind and considerate, but that pales in comparison to the 2 and 1/2 HOURS I spent in the waiting room. The environment is a dirty large apartment, with a TV that's too loud and I nearlywalked in on another patient's appointment, because the secretaries left before arrangeing my return visit to hear blood work results. I would see the doctor again if he worked in a different office, but as it stands, I don't even want to hear my results if it means I have to go back.

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.

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 lessthan 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 annualcheckup 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, whodraws 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 surehe 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.
