I’ve seen this doctor for years. I love him. However, i saw him 2 weeks ago. I waited for 55 minutes beyond my appointment time before he entered the building! He said there was a lot of traffic. I rolled withit. However today....again....after waiting 45 minutes, he still wasn’t in the building. I asked what was going on (maybe he was just sick). Another doctor saw me. The other doctor logged information in my file saying he educated me about things he did not. Smh. I emailed my doctor, politely expressing my dismay. No apology. No response. I used to think the world of this man. Sadly, it’s time to put my health care in some else’s hands....someone who respects me and my time since Dr. Carpenter no longer does.

Dr Carpenter was friendly, personable and thorough. He asked a lot of questions, made recommendations, and made me feel well looked after. His staff is very friendly too, and they made me feel very at ease even when getting blood drawn(which I hate!) The facilities are really clean and the office is lovely too. If it weren't for the wait, it would have been amazing!

I was the first patient of the day, The wait time was horrible. I don't know what the issue was because my insurance was cleared a week before. Receptionists were ok. The doctor was good, I don't have any major health issues so it was a simple visit.

Dr. Carpenter was very down to earth. He is young and you can tell from his demeanor. However he knows his stuff just as much as every other doctor that Ive visited. Its a unique combo and As someone looking for a primary care physician I appreciate it.

I tried a number of different doctors in New York before finding Dr. Carpenter. I've been a patient for the past two years and am very happy. Dr. Carpenter is incredibly thoughtful when answering questions and explaining the underlying medicalreasons for his suggestions in a way that's easy for me to understand. He even helped me avoid some of the predatory billing practices that past doctors have tried to use on me (unnecessary tests, medication that's way too strong, etc). You can tell he puts patient health over trying to bilk insurance for money, which is such a relief. He also focuses on holistic care and has a number of good specialists he trusts that he can refer me to. I'm very confident that my health is in good hands, and as bonuses, the online portal is modern and easy to use and the office is clean and well-located.

Long wait time along with the fact that despite leaving 3 messages I didn’t get a call back. Each time I called I was on hold for 40 minutes. I had a serious issue and not calling back is not acceptable.

Dr. Carpenter is relaxed and easy going. Casual professional is a good way I would describe the overall experience. Not stuffy or sterile like sometimes a visit to the doctor can be. Brooklyn hip even.

Dr. Carpenter did not seem professional. He was dressed in street clothes (ripped jeans and a T-shirt) and acted too casual and even a little awkwardly jokey. Not what I'm looking for in a doctor.

Great doctor, very personable, and he listens. He takes great notes and refers to them in your next visit as a follow up. And luckily, he usually has a lot of times available on Zocdoc to make an appt. Office isbright and clean. Nurses are all very nice. Only complaint: Don’t expect it to be a quick visit. The last 2 times I was there, my appointments were at 7:45am and 1:15pm and both times I was out an hour and 15 later. They take you into the private rooms quickly but the doctor doesn’t come for a long time. Both times I’m pretty sure he was a half hour late coming into the office in the morning and then from lunch. And there’s no service in the private rooms so you just stare at the wall or your pictures on your phone.

Dr. Carpenter was, by far, the best internist I have ever visited. He was at once professional and warm, insightful and inviting, precise and thorough. I spent upwards of 45 minutes with him and felt that he took a genuine interestin my health and well being. As well, the nursing staff was awesome and a real joy. The staff at this facility takes their jobs seriously, but they don’t take themselves seriously and I personally love that. Doctors offices shouldn’t be unapproachable, cold institutions—and Dr. Carpenter and his staff did everything they could to ensure their office wasn’t anything of the sort. Excellent.
