The Dr is great. Very thorough. Unfortunately the wait is just too long. I had a 10:30 appt, I got thereat 10 and wasn't seen until 2:30pm. Apparently this is an everyday occurrence. Definitely need to take a full day off to come see him. Once you do see him, he is great.

Dr Bobis is incredible and I have never before received the kind of care that he provides. He is thorough, listens to you and goes above and beyond to help. I am a regular patient of his, and only come back because he demonstrates so much professionalism and empathy. The wait times here are awful. I’ve waited between 1.5 hours to 4 hours to be seen. There have been times that I’ve had to walk out because the wait is so ridiculous, even after booking my appointments through ZocDoc. I think there’s an unspoken rule of walk-ins, so that even if you book the first appointment of the day, the waiting room is already packed. It’s such a shame and would’ve been much better if they were transparent about appointments and wait times. If you come here, plan to take the day off from work.

Dr Bobis is incredibly thoughtful and thorough. My experience is that he treats his patients with empathy, treating each one of us as people, not just patients. The wait times can be trying, but it is also a direct result of his willingness to put real human interaction ahead of inhumane efficiency models into his practice.

Honestly, the wait time was not his fault, the client before me definitely gave him a tough time, but it was definitely worth the wait to see him. He is great at what he does, makes you feel welcome, and easy to talk to. Very clear and concise, and a strong recommendation for anyone looking for a primary care physician.

I had a great experience as a new patient! Dr. Bobis spent nearly 45 minutes taking a full history and answered all my questions. The office staff were also very nice. The only downside was that I did have to wait but only for about 15 minutes or so. Overall, I would definitely recommend a friend to Dr. Bobis.

Dr. Bobis has all the expected knowledge of any modern physician. What sets him apart is kindness. Dr. Bobis actually pays attention to the word "care" in healthcare. He explains everything thoroughly and empathizes with whatever issues you may be having. This is one of those rare doctors.

The staff is really nice and pleasant but no one in this office takes appointment times seriously. No one. They will tell you you’re next and then 20-30 more minutes will go by. Sometimes they even say they called you and you must’ve missed it (which is absurd because the waiting room is quite small). Again, Dr. Bobis is really nice and the staff are also friendly but waiting an hour just to get my blood pressure taken by a nurse and then another hour just to see the doctor is insane—especially considering I only came to get a prescription refill and the test results from my last appointment. I had to rearrange my entire day for this one appointment and this happens all the time with them. It’s shameful.

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 chit chat 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 was already 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 that I 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.

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 hope they 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 going on, 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 the time to wait the staff had great bedside manor and the nurse practitioner I saw was very knowledgeable and friendly.
