Very happy I was able to see this Dr. I made a last minute appointment. He gave me a prescription to the medicine I needed. I'm looking forward to getting better. He seemed pretty thorough. He even checked my hernia which I wasn't even there for.

Came in for an annual physical and I spent 95% of my visit with a (very nice) medical student rather than the actual Doctor. Doctor comes in for 5 minutes and just recommends PT and a follow up visit and walks away. I guess this is the state of healthcare nowadays. He's a nice guy but seemed pretty absent during my visit. Probably busy managing all the med students.

Was charged 2x- once for the physical and another for an appointment wherein all the doctor did was read test results. No bedside manner and saw the doctor for approximately 5 minutes total between 2 different appointments.

Always a pleasure seeing Dr Jean-Baptiste, he's very approachable and professional. His nurse practitioner Anika is wonderful as well. I like the North 7th offices more became its smaller & more personable but I couldn't get there by 12noon so I visited his Flatbush location. Staff very nice there as well,

Dr. B has been my doctor for several years, so I went in recently for my yearly physical and was seen rather quickly. I love how thorough he is with the blood work that he orders. I hate getting my blood drawn but his blood drawer (actual term ?) was patient, kind and gentle. I am comfortable with this office and even bring my mother for her physical when she comes to visit from out of the country! See you guys next year!!

I rebooked an appointment just to get a prescription refilled; it was noon on a friday. I was brought into the office quickly and had my vitals taken my a nurse. I than sat in the tiny patient room for over an hour until the doctor arrived and hands me the prescription. The place was dead. I saw two other patients other then myself in there.

My review may be colored a bit because the lab that this doctor sent my blood to hit me with a surprise bill, pricing as if I wasn't covered for any test at all (the cost of the bill & the tests were later declined). However, outside of that experience, I still had to wait over an hour & the bedside manner was not a good experience (it took 4 attempts to inject me and successfully extract blood).

Dr. Baptiste and his receptionist were great-- very friendly, helpful, smart and easy-going. His nurse however, should be fired. She tried to draw my blood even though I was there for a sore throat. When I asked her why she had to do this, she said they had to do it for all new patients even though there was a sign behind her that said it was required for new patient ANNUAL PHYSICALS. Worse, she clearly didn't know how to draw blood-- she fumbled trying to set everything up and then couldn't get any blood out because she forgot to remove the tourniquette after she put the needle in my arm. So then she proceed to move the needle around to try and get blood to come out. Then she just pulled the needle out and blood when spraying everywhere- the chair, the floor, the counter, my backpack because she didn't put any gauze there when she took out the needle. Then she didn't know how to turn on the light (claimed it was broken) to look down my throat and used her cell phone flashlight instead. While I was waiting of for the doctor to come in, I turned the light on easily-- she just forgot to press the button. Her bedside manner during all of this was terrible.

The wait time here is incredibly long. I honestly dont even know why they take appointments because its guaranteed that you will not be put in a room until an hr after your appointment time. And then you'll continue to wait at least another half hour before the doctor shows up and spends a max of 10 minutes with you. Dr Jean-Baptiste is a nice enough guy, but i dont have the time to wait around 2 hours just to have a prescription refilled. Its ridiculous. I found a new dr on ZocDoc while waiting in their reception area because it was already 45 minutes past my appointment time and they still had 4 people ahead of me. I wont be seeing this doctor ever again.

Dr. Jean-Baptiste is thorough and clear when discussing any and all health concerns. I was extremely pleased with him, as well as the staff. However, the only downside is the wait is extremely too long.
