Verified Patient Reviews
This office is always outstanding. Dr. Like as follows up to make sure I'm feeling better. It is a great experience.
I scheduled an appointment and when I called to confirm the office said I didn't have an appointment, kind of annoying
Paul Hogue, PA was great. Very informative. Answered all my questions.
I never leave reviews, but they are the absolute best.
I was seen right away. Office staff was fantastic. Dr. Liakeas and Dr. Gouzoulis are very personable. I highly recommend this practice!
Dr Liakeas was awesome! I was afraid I'd have to go through many doctors before finding my permanent physician... not here! Very comforting office, bedside manor, overall nice & smart guy!!
Best doc in nyc
He was great! Friendly and efficient, but took the time to really work through my case!
Love this doctor's office. Great people from reception to examination rooms. Always feel cared for, respected, and safe there.
Quick and professional.
I couldn't be more pleased with the service and the accuracy of my treatment and diagnosis.
It was my first time ever visiting a doctor in the States and needless to say, Dr. Liakeas' high ratings on zocdoc deemed true and I was particularly impressed and relieved that the receptionist also made the patients fill out a follow-up form so that the doctor can follow-up in a couple weeks to see how the patients are doing, which I've never seen any doctors do in my experience!
The most seamless experience with requesting a vaccination. Very fast and painless.
Excellent physician. Highest recommendation.
Dr. Liakeas's office is always very clean and the front office assistants are always very professional. I never have to wait longer than 5 mins and the Physician Assistant is very nice, attentive, and professional. Dr. Liakeas is also very nice and always takes the time to ask questions about yourself.
Dr. Liakeas seemed knowledgeable and kind. He gave me three shots that didn't hurt at all even though I'm afraid of needles. Before I knew it I was in and out of the office. I will be using him as my primary care going forward!
Dr. Liakias is very nice and helpful. He is a good doctor. He and his team does a great job!
My first time there. Receptionist was friendly and his PA, Lydia, is professional and great listener. She took all my info and asked the right questions. Dr. Liakeas is knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable enough to call or come by anytime. A rare trait!
it was very professional and efficient. minimal wait time
Such a great visit! The wait and appt were extremely quick (which I greatly appreciated as I was in the middle of my work day.) Dr. Liakeas was very welcoming and easy to speak to. I will definitely be coming back to this office.
Fast, thorough and pleasant
Very nice doctor who takes time to discuss with you and seems interested to find a solution and not to rush. Waiting time a bit long but it was a busy day for their office.
He barely checked me- it was mostly the medical assistant who looked at my condition.
Made me comfortable with his outgoing personality and he took the time to walk thru my prescriptions and future potential concerns. I would certainly go back.
Every one was very kind and very professional. It was my first visit, but I look forward to continuing a relationship with them as my PCP for time to come.
The Doctor and his staff were very professional and I especially appreciated the fact that they treated me with respect and courtesy
Amazingly seen immediately. Service was awesome.
His wife came into his office and was having a personal conversation with him in the middle of our appointment - pretty awkward. I was also seen by a med student and the doctor barely examined me. He's nice, but not the most professional.
Never got a call back with the results. Called to follow up and they said they would get back to me
Really great PA and was super friendly and accommodating!
I had a great visit, but it seemed a little rushed, to the point where a few of my symptoms were ignored. I would go back but ask for more time.
Extremely nice and easy to converse with. Been very helpful. Highly recommended!
It was great. He is personable and I would see him again.
Very professional, very helpful, would definitely come back again
My visit with Dr. Liakeas' office was great. The doctors were easy to speak to and I felt extremely comfortable.
Very professional, quick and friendly. I met several of the staff and they were all very kind and accommodating. Doctor took time to meet me face to face even though I came in for a routine visit.
Very welcoming! Truly interested and helpful.
I definitely recommend this doctor! I was a first time patient and was seen within ten minutes of my arrival. I have a cold and was worried about a possible sinus infection and am flying to CA on Saturday. I was taken care of and given many treatment options to take care of my sinus problems now, during my flight and when I am away! I have waited for a doctor for an hour before . . . this was so awesome!
I usually end up seeing a physician's assistant when I go to Dr. Liakeas but I like all of them that work there. I love that they follow up with me a day or two later via email to make sure that whatever they prescribed is working or that I feel better. The office is very nice and clean and the doctor and the PA's are all really nice and will go out of their way if you're not feeling well.
I am into a more holistic approach to care, and I think Dr. Liakeas and co are really more traditional bunch. They are smart and professional and competent, but I think I need something more hippy-dippy herbs and oils. It's not them, it's me.
The medical staff are a breath of fresh air. They listen to your concerns and talk you through whatever it is you are there for. Bedside manner is perfect. I have been going here for 3 years and have never had any issues with any of ailments, sicknesses. Something to note, the few times I was sick, the Dr. called himself to make sure I was improving. A nice touch. The support staff is also very pleasant and accommodating.
Dr. Liakeas and his team are nothing short of phenomenal; highly recommend!
Always quick and helpful. Dr. Liakeas is very personable.
Very insightful and not rushed. A pleasure.
Nice clean modern office with convenient midtown location. All staff were cordial as well as quick and efficient.
I was able to see the doctor on very short notice and receive symptom-relieving treatment for my illness, which was a plus. However, there was a very long wait before leaving the waiting room, and even once in the doctor's office, there were a few times when I was left in the room alone for extended periods of time. Dr. Liakeas has a unique bedside manner that I have not experienced before; he's prone to joking about most everything, which likely makes some patients more comfortable being in a doctor's office. Though certainly light-hearted, this sometimes gave the impression that my case was not being taken seriously.
Dr. Liakeas is the best and his office is run like a well oiled machine.
Dr. Liakeas and his team provide "concierge" style medical service and they are great at what they do. They work well together, I always feel cared for, and most importantly, I have always received effective treatment from them.
Fantastic physician with excellent bedside manner - compassionate and takes time to listen. Every positive review here is exactly accurate. I couldn't be happier with Dr. Liakias and his team.
This office is great. Everything is quick, everyone is personable and they are very professional.
Doctor pinkas was so knowledgeable so compassionate and understanding because its was desretpency WITH my narcotics medication due to there's different dates wich was mistaken made me look not telling truths when i was he got yo bottom of it fit it saw Me gave me my meds were others DOCTOR thought something fishy going on i Would had GONE believe sonething not right he didn't believe me got it straith he the best found my new pcp recorded to you
Amazing :-) great doctor
Quick and helpful. Got a referral to a specialist.
Excellent doctor and very through! Always friendly and answers all my questions!!
Great first time visit. Good honest advice and not rushed.
Great practice. The doc and his PAs are very professional and thorough. Would definitely recommend.
He has been my primary for a couple of years now. I've never had to wait more than 20 minutes to be seen and most of the time it is under 10. I went in for a physical this trip and I was immediately seen even though I showed up 15 minutes early. Always prompt with good bedside manner.
I was very satisfied by my visit. The staff is very polite and knowledgable and the doctor very professional. By the way, the office and the surroundings are beautiful and spotless!,
Very friendly staff that were warm and made me feel very comfortable and I was able to be in and out of there within 30 minutes. The office is beautiful and well kept with a great view of the city. I will definitely be coming back!
He and his staff are the best!
It was a great experience! Dr. Liakeas is knowledgeable, funny and patient. He has a great team that works with him as well. So glad I found him on Zoc Doc!
Very professional, pleasant and welcoming. I definitely recommend Doctor Liakeas's office to anyone looking for a good primary care doctor.
I probably went on a day that was busy for the doctor's office. I saw this doctor had a lot of great reviews, so I may just have gone on the wrong day. I was seen in a "SPA room" because the consultation rooms were full. Nobody took my vitals (even though I thought I was running a fever). The doctor spent less than 5 minutes with me and I felt like I could not finish a sentence when trying to say something. I was asked if I had medication allergies (which I do) as I was walking out of the room, and had already been handed a prescription. After making a comment at the front desk, I was told that the reason why the visit was so quick was because they had seen a lot of cases like mine lately so they knew what it was (which is fine), but also that they were trying to get me out of there fast since " a young professional like me probably had to get back to work quickly" (I actually had the afternoon off and did not ask anybody to rush, nor make this decision for me). Since I complained, I received a call and a couple of follow up emails from the doctor. As much as I appreciate that he made an effort to reach out to try to make me feel better about the visit and answer my concerns, it was a little much and too late.
Dr Liakeas was very helpful and listened to my entire story. The staff were friendly and the office is in good shape. They had a lot of staff running around so it seemed a little hectic but it was a very good experience.
I've been to a number of General Practitioners in the city and Dr.Liakeas is definitely the best.
Very professional and made you feel comfortable. Listened to my concerns and thouroughly explained how they were going to proceed. The office was decorated very nicely. Looked like a spa when I first walked in!
Dr Liakeas was really good about following up, i was waiting on results for my blood test and he made the effort to call the lab on a saturday. and was great about emailing me my results over the next few days as they came in.
I've been living in Manhattan for 8 years and have been on a never ending quest for a good primary care physician. I had given up hope until I found Dr Liakeas and his team. Everyone genuinely cares and their follow up is great. I will recommend them to anyone looking for great personal care.
I've been with this Dr. For years! He's the best!
Saw Paul, one of the PAs, and also met Dr. Liakeas. Both were great. They knew what they were talking about and were eager to help. Reception desk staff were very friendly and efficient. If another malady befalls me (or for any other reason) I'll definitely be returning.
Excellent experience every time!
Great Doctor and staff. I will use him as my regular Doctor going forward. Highly recommend Dr. Liakeas
He talked my ear off (a bit), but he had a lot to say about the studies behind the condition and it's clear he's up-to-date in his knowledge. He made sure I understood my options.
Very friendly and professional team ! I highly recommend them !
My pre-travel consultation/vaccination appointment was actually with one of the practice's PAs - Paul Hogue. He was personable, thorough and very informative. Quick but didn't rush me. Answered all my questions and offer advice I didn't even think to ask for. I met Dr. Liakeas at the very end and he was also very warm and welcoming (the ladies at the front desk could follow the trend a little more). I only intended to come for the consultation but based on my experience I think I'll come back for my annual check up.
Everyone was very pleasant and answer any questions i had. I know its a doctors office but i didn't feel rushed. I like the office.
I met with Paul for my annual physical. He was very knowledgeable and answered all of my concerns.
Dr George and his office is so great! They really care about their patients and the service is good! Highly recommended
At first I met with a PA, Paul who was amazing! He was very helpful and made me feel extremely comfortable considering the fact that I was a new patient. When I met with Dr. Liakeas I knew from there that this was going to be my new family of doctors!
Great doctor, Great staff -- very friendly and accommodating. Recommended.
Lydia was so nice and helpful. Will definitely go back
He's a kind and thoughtful doctor
Great doctor. Very friendly, thorough, and always follows up.
love the office, best doctor in NYC hands down
Straight and to the point plus a convenient location from work. I'd definitely come back to him again.
Great visit! Fast and efficient!
Doctor made me feel very comfortable; I was encouraged to ask questions and express concerns -- Indeed, a great experience!
Saw me on time, was attentive, answered all my questions. And funny too!
Honestly, I don't think you could possibly have a better PCP. Dr. Liakeas and his team are kind, professional, knowledgeable - the kinds of people you actually enjoy seeing. I would highly recommend this physician to anyone.
George and his team are wonderful, much more thorough than any other doctors I've seen! He has a great sense of humor, making you feel at ease, and everyone there goes above and beyond to make sure you feel taken care of. Highly recommended.
great doctor, highly recommended
They are the best!!! I love Lydia she is so awesome. Always listens and never makes you feel silly for asking lots of questions. Best Dr. office by far!
He answered my questions and concerns to my satisfaction.
Excellent, all around. Dr. Liakeas and his (new) office are a shining example of a something that has become quite rare: a pleasant doctor's visit.
very professional and good attentive listener to your problems and medical concerns. follows through with feedback of test results within a day or 2 via email or by phone immaculate office and friendly competent staff
Very thorough and knowledgeable. Also EXTREMELY accommodating.
Great experience overall!
Best general practitioner I've met in Manhattan.
Really nice guy. Helpful staff.
Dr. Liakeas absolutely rocks! He is super professional while at the same time making you feel very comfortable because he is very personable. He doesn't waste any time and answers all your questions and concerns. He's wonderful! I will be back for my annual physical shortly. Also, the office is beautiful and clean like a gallery. Very pleasant experience!
Very efficient. In and out quickly. Explained his process and then left the rest of the talking up to me. Was training a student and correcting how she filled out things on the computer. I thought that could have waited until after.
Seemed very rushed, to the point where I felt like he was just making assumptions. Came in complaining of cold-like symptoms and no voice for 2-3 days. Shined light in my throat and gave me antibiotics. Didn't take blood pressure, listen to lungs/heart...nothing. I was in and out in maybe 5 minutes. Almost a month later now and I'm still sick (am seeing a different doctor soon). Didn't seem like a bad guy, but didn't seem interested either.
A lot of the time when I make an appointment with the doctor, I end up seeing one of his physician's assistants instead. I like both the ones that I've seen so that's totally fine with me (and Dr. Liakeas is nice too). The wait time wasn't bad and everyone there is nice, so I'll definitely be back!
Dr Liakeas is one of the best doctors I have ever seen. He truly cares for his patients. I was finally able to see Dr L as the first 2 times I saw the NP, who was amazing as well. The phones/internet/fax were all down this day but Dr L personally answered some calls on his cell phone from patients. He has the patience of a god as he spent a while explaining all the options to a patient on the other line. He then spent as much time with me as I needed and did not rush one bit. He made me feel like he cared and was genuinely interested to hear what I had to say. I cant imagine going to another doctor as my PCP, Dr L is truly one of the best!
Love everyone at this office.
I booked an appointment with Dr. Liakeas but I was actually seen by one of his nurses - she was friendly, knowledgable, and didn't rush me through. Dr. Liakeas checked in to see if I had any questions or concerns, and personally ensured that I was being well taken care of. I will absolutely return to this office, and I'm considering making them my primary care team.
Very thorough. Very pleasant. Overall a good experience. Would go back again. Will probably make them my primary care physician.
The doctor was on the phone, an assistant saw me. She was allright for my basic needs but the doctor was like a smooth talking businessman more than a professional. They promised I would have my lab results in 3 business days as this was critical for me but when i called after 3 business days they said they have no idea when the results will be back and they have no control over timelines. They were not even apologetic about making a false promise to get business.
Fantastic doctors, highly recommended.
Great guy, very personable. He explained everything to me, which was helpful.
Very thorough and professional.
Front desk staff could have been friendlier/more helpful.
Despite booking an appointment with the Dr. on ZocDoc, I saw a physician's assitant (Lydia Emnott) instead of Dr. Liakeas. That was appropriate for my issue and Lydia was very professional and helpful. The new offices are very nice. Just be aware that you might not get the doctor you book.
I think Dr. George was great. He has a great sense of humor (I like to laugh) and he was right to the point. I however think the receptionists there could be a little nicer. Maybe a smile (gosh! it's Friday)...apart from that I would definitely see him again.
Dr. Liakeas was very friendly and took time to listen, before thoroughly explaining the best course of action for me. Highly recommended.
His diagnoses have always been fast and accurate. At first, I thought he was rushing me out of his office, but he's actually just very fast. He's also followed up with me over email after every time I've seen him, which I appreciated.
A different doctor saw me actually but Dr. Liakeas came in, answered my questions, and left promptly. I actually like his followups, he is very quick to answer emails and to follow up with necessary prescriptions.
The doctor's have wonderful bedside manner, the new office is gorgeous, and I love going there!
His office was busy, like many offices in midtown. He took time out to check in with me even though I stressed I was in a rush, which I appreciated. Staff was very friendly and office was very nice
I like how fast he gets things done. Living in manhattan, he keeps up with the demands.
They recently moved to a newly renovated place. Love the atmosphere there and also Dr.Lydia. The whole team is very professional - I felt being in good hands.
As always dr liakeas and his team are great. Definitly recommend.
Excellent Doctor. Thorough, pleasant to speak to, professional. HIGHLY RECOMMENDABLE!
At the age of 43 I have finally found a doctor that I LOVE and that really cares. Everyone there is amazing.
George was very efficient and understanding of what easily could have been an embarrassing matter. I was pretty scared before seeing him, but he eased my mind and cracked a few jokes that were very appreciated. Great guy.
Awesome doctor. No time wastage and quick results the following day.
I have simply never had a better experience with a PCP than with Dr. Liakeas & his team. Dr. Liakeas is not just very knowledgeable, he is extremely caring and conscientious. I could not be any happier with his work and am happy to give him my very highest recommendation.
Very friendly and knowledgeable-- highly recommend.
I waited for 40 minutes to see the doctor. Dr.Liakeas saw me in the waiting area and said I'll be right with you -- and appeared after 40 minutes. I just had a nagging cold and wanted to check it out. He spent 7 minutes with me in total .. and gave me some pills and sent me on my way. He gave me a nasal spray as a consolation for waiting that long. The doctor himself seemed knowledgeable but definitely the practice is not well run. He was distracted the whole time because they were moving offices and had to take a call because his contractor called while he was speaking to me. He rushed out and hastily gave the prescription in which he didn't even write my name correctly while I spelled the name out to him because he was so distracted. He blamed Zocdoc for showing availability even while he was fully booked. Not.going.back.
Excellent doctor, very efficient, good communication with patients.
Dr. Liakeas is the best, like a doctor you wouldn't believe existed in Manhattan anymore. I'm moving out of state in two months and I may have to consider traveling back in for my checkups because he's JUST THAT GOOD.
Great Doctor! Friendly, upfront, and reliable.
Awesome. The RPAC Lydia is so nice, efficient, and helpful.
He got me in and out quickly, without feeling rushed at all. I went in for travel vaccines and he went through all the different vaccines and prescriptions I may want. He made a couple jokes and was very pleasant.
Excellent Doctor. I visit today for the first time and get a really good impression. The doctors are very professional and considerate. Thank you.
Fantastic doctor with great personality! Looking forward to returning for a follow-up appointment.
This place was amazing. It turns out that I click the wrong option when I made the appointment on here but they were willing to take me in. They were so nice and sweet and just amazing. I did have to wait a little bit but considering I messed up and didnt call for the physical, they were very accommodating.
Dr. Liakeas is one of the best.
Be sure to call their office before booking a Physicall check-up through ZocDoc as it is not offered. I thought it was just left out by accident on their drop down menu but it's left out intentionally for their particular reasons.
Very pleasant experience.
I really liked his team. Very professional and smart. I only came in for an annual physical, so my interactions were mostly with staff other than Dr. Liakeas, but when I did interact with him he was funny and caring. Would recommend.
Dr Liakeas was excellent- cut straight to the issue and diagnosed quickly. Not nurse to screen you pre doctor coming into the room. He followed up with an email checking on my progress. Highly recommend!
Very satisfied with the level of professionalism, the efficiency, the friendliness of Dr. Liakeas and his staff.
George Likeas is the best doctor in New York.
Excellent, as usual.
Excellent guy, very professional yet human in nature and direct. Looking forward to continuing to go to him moving forward as my primary doctor.
As always Dr. Liakeas and Dr. Gouzoulis were great. Is always a great relaxing visit to the doctor. They are very approachable and make the atmosphere relaxed so you can openly ask questions
I like this guy - very matter of fact. I take a lot of interest in researching health topics, my wife is a veterinary specialist, and I'm generally pretty literate about medicine / biology. He's the first doctor I've seen who talked to me like another intelligent adult instead of a complete idiot. Plus, he was prompt, friendly, and laid back all at once. It's a matter of personal preference but I really appreciated his personality. He forgot to script a med for me, but followed up immediately via email and phoned it in to the pharmacy of my choice. Very convenient.
Great doctor - really trust the whole team. Very thorough and great beside manner
Super Friendly and helpful!
Dr. Liakeas is friendly, knowledgeable, competent, reassuring and funny. In addition to that he has an excellent team of doctors and administrative staff. Very trustworthy. Highly recommend
Apparently their system doesn't sync perfectly with Zocdoc, so heads up, but I was actually seen 15 minutes early. Great experience.
Dr. Liakeas was wonderful and explained everything to me in great detail. I didn't feel as though he rushed through my visit and he came back after I had my blood work done to discuss next steps. He recommended I see a specialist and followed up via email with a few names.
Always have a great experience here!
visit was actually with one of his team member. Very professional, straight forward diagnostic. George swang back at the end to make sure everything was alright and that he agreed with the prescription. Quick, efficient visit. you should go there!
Quick, to the point, laid out the options and sent me back to work. Will get blood results in 2 days. Definitely appreciate the speedy appointment.
no wait, helpful doctors!
great experience. would def go back!
This was a huge improvement over going to urgent care. Also, George and his team took the time to probe into my issues, and successfully determined that I had bronchitis, after the previous ENT that I saw gave me the wrong medication.
It was such a positive experience. I've never left a doctor's office in such a great mood
So friendly and considerate. Really took the time to get to know me and dig deep. Offered to help me with issues that I see specialists for. Highly recommend.
This seems to be a growing office that concentrates on teaching and connecting with patients. Dr. Liakeas had great bed-side manner and shows sincere interest in his patients thoughts and feedback. His P.A. was also very kind and the med student seemed to be very competent.
The best doctor that I have had in 15 years...sad to leave NYC!
I'm glad I went to the doc this time because I had something I would never have guessed! The student doc came in and asked me a bunch of questions, then Dr. Liakeas came in and just announced what I have. He took a quick look too and then told me all the reasons that it's not what I thought it was and I'm feeling a little better after a day of the meds he prescribed.
I love love love Dr. Liakeas! He's definitely the best doctor I've ever been to. This guy is funny, and just overal super cool. I'm always nervous when I go to the doctors but he made me feel so relaxed and comfortable. The dude gets five golden stars
Great front desk. Office manager makes you feel like a real person who matters.
Brusque and straightforward bedside manner (this is New York City after all), which I found comforting as a form of confidence, but I could see other people taking it as being curt. Reception was speedy and made sure I was in and out in a timely manner. Gave me 2 courses of medication: viral/symptomatic and antibiotic, and the latter ended up doing the trick pretty well, so I'm happy there!
Personable, yet efficient.
Excellent, as usual
Lydia was great! I always have a great experience with George, Lydia, and Helen! They are friendly, understand, perceptive, and smart. I am so glad this was my first and only pick for a GP office. Thank you guys so much!!
Very efficient office and friendly staff.
This office has Been efficient for me twice now. I waited less than 30 minutes both times and one time I didn't even have an appointment. The doctors are very friendly and Dr Liakeas is understanding and effective with his diagnosis. Great practice, ill be back.
The office is completely disorgnized! Too few staff and way too many walk-ins. I was cared for by his assistant, he walked in for maybe a minute and stood by the door the entire time. I did liked the doc and the staff because he seemed nice and the diagnosis was good. But folks, please get more prefessional! Geez
Very professional and friendly.
Love this Doc office. Quick, friendly and knowledgable!
Lydia was great!
These guys rock! Went to this NYC establishment (referred by colleagues - who made it clear they were annoyed by my constant cough). When I first arrived I was pretty skeptical because the elevator is a claustrophobics worst nightmare. Then when you walk in it was pretty cold so made it seem eerie with all the other sick people. The doctor was in a jovial mood which created a domino effect towards the rest of his staff. They made fun of each other. I guess thats what doctors do to pass time. I received a voice message asking how I was doing. I was not feeling any better! When I called the office they told me to come right in. I truly respected the doctor when he told me I didn't have to pay my outrageous $35 copayment because I was just here a couple days ago, he gave me samples and even had his assistant find me a coupon online. Received an email the next day asking if I was better! The icy feeling melted as soon as met them because of their southern like hospitality.
Very professional, courteous and useful, as usual.
The staff is clearly capable of running the office, but there has not been a time I get out of this office under 1 hour. I went to Dr. Liakeas several times a few years ago when my office was only 2 blocks away from my job. Since we moved locations I have not needed to see a Dr. during my lunch break until today. Instead of finding a new Dr., I just decided to take the 5 minute subway ride to my old office area. He has implemented ZocDoc which at first impressions would seem like a tool to speed up the process. I did my address change, I scheduled my appt, it showed promise. Then when I got to the office it was the same old routine, 10 chairs in the waiting room all filled and at anytime you had 2-5 people standing, waiting. I arrived 10 minutes early thinking I could get out faster. It proved to be worthless. After waiting 30 minutes past my scheduled appt, I got up and asked Gina how much longer, and as usual they are only given so much information to provide patients so she said I had one person in front of me, but not sure how long it would take. Five minutes later that one person eventually was called, and 10 minutes later he came out. I have now been waiting over an 45 minutes past my appt, and I'm thinking I may still get in during my lunch break. Nope. After waiting some more, Gina tells me their was an emergency in the back with a patient. Now, the only two doctors who are in, are both occupied with an "emergency" case. No one came in between the time I was waiting and the one guy ahead of me, so what emergency are they having that is lasting 45 minutes to occupy one Dr and now the other. One patient that was called 2 patients before me had started coming out, so I gave the doctors the benefit of the doubt thinking this guy was the "emergency" case. So as he grabbed his coat, looking quite fine, I asked him, "were you with both doctors?" His response, "No, I was just doing a physical with one". All of the sudden 3 patients are called to enter the 3 empty exam rooms. In my opinion, there was no emergency, it was just lunchtime. I get you have to eat, but seriously while people are waiting??? And by the way, you schedule an appt using ZocDoc and you think it will speed things up, but it wont. Gina told me the doctor's schedule wasnt updated with ZocDoc so all the appts you see available are most likely already taken and you just double booked. After waiting 1 hour and 40 minutes, from 11:23am to 12:51pm for an 11:30am appt, and add in the time to see the doctor, checkout and travel to and from work, I wasted over 2 hours of my time for seeing the doctor for 8 minutes. Needless to say, as good as his practice and skills may be, I am not returning, and have found a doctor closer to my new office location. Kind of inconvenient trying to explain to your boss why your one hour lunch break took 2 hours.
I felt rushed and I felt like he was talking too much. I included a brief description of an embarrassing personal problem I was having (involving my genitals) and he just started explaining possible causes of the problem, not asking me questions about what I was feeling, how long I'd been feeling it, et cetera. When the interview ended he gave me a thorough breakdown of next steps I could take, and gave me referrals to other doctors, which went well. The medical student and intake person were both very professional.
I didn't see the doctor; I had made the appointment just the night before on ZocDoc and I couldn't believe I had an appointment Te next day. I was seen by Lidia, I believe she's his medical assistant. She was fantastic. Very nice, knowledgeable, and explained everything to me patiently. The front desk staff was Gina, and she was wonderful to watch work. She ran that office expertly. I will definitely go back (though I hope it's not too soon for obvious reasons).
He was great - will definitely be making him my PC Dr.
Dr. Liakeas is a very warm, human doctor. He tries to understand the position of the patient understanding their fears. I went today for an intense stomach pain he discussed my case with other doctors in the office. It was an hour appointment and I got as much attention as possible. I highly recommend his practice. He has a team of doctors so you might not get doctor Liakeas every time you go but they are all good professionals. I look at it from the positive side, in fact having more doctors in the office there are more appointments available.
My favorite doctor's office!
The doctor and the staff were great. I will go back if I ever get sick again.
Terrific, as always.
Dr. George and Lydia were incredibly sharp, kind, and sweet. They gave an explanation for the cause of my problem, presented me with options while, at the same time, also suggesting the most pragmatic (and correct) solution. <3 I couldn't have felt more comfortable and more assured. Very highly recommended!
The only thing that sucked was the wait time. I know they're busy, but I was on my break from work! He and Lydia were great listeners, gave me lots of options, and were very honest and straight with me. Thumbs up!
Great office visit and I am glad I found a local doctor to use now.
this place felt like not like a doc office but a business.
Excellent service, friendly and courteous staff and valuable medical advice. Highly recommended.
Dr. Liakeas was one of the most efficient, professional, and helpful physicians I have ever seen. I booked an appointment with him because I needed some travel vaccinations and saw on ZocDoc that he specialized in travel medicine; however, I will now most certainly return to him for general health issues as well. He was incredibly helpful in going through each immunization and explaining their details. He notably did not "push" one optional specialty travel vaccination - he outlined the pros versus the reasons why most people don't get it, then left me to think about it, fully informed. He was incredibly helpful and patient in addressing my multidude of questions.
I have seen 3 doctors at this practice, and every one has had great bedside manner, been very knowledgeable, and addressed any questions/conerns that I had! They also always follow up via phone and/or email after the appointments, which I've found very comforting! Office is spotless. (Added plus- you can generally get same-day appointments.)
He is great and professional, however the wait was a bit long.
I think I found my new general practitioner. I hope on long term they'll keep being as good as today!
everybody in this office and on his staff were super kind. i'll definitely go here again.
Everything was fantastic!
Flu shot done in 30 seconds after I stepped into the room.
Longish wait time, but very personable doctor with rapid service.
He is amazing. Knows his stuff, and is never too busy to make sure you have all the info. you need. Not to mention, will ALWAYS take you if you have an emergency.
Dr. Liakeas is the best! His office runs efficiently and he is funny and pleasant.
I could not possibly be happier with Dr. Liakeas. The reviews here are accurate, and everyone in his office is just terrific.
I have never had such an attentive, professional experience with any doctor like this. I am always seen on time, I get detailed information on my diabetes and anything else I inquire about. The correct tests are always ordered and I've never waited more than 2 days for the results! Have you ever had a dr's office call you to make sure you started taking a new medication? or remind you that you have to go see the specialist they recommended? THEY DO. His NP, Lydia, is awesome! She's my main source of contact and she's great. I can't say enough good things about the entire staff.
His PA was extremely effective at meeting my immediate needs. Exam, testing, shots, etc. This is a credit to Dr. Liakeas effective management and good judgement of people. However, Dr. Liakeas seemed hurried and told more anecdotes than asked questions. For a new customer in any business, this is insulting. If you need your flu shots or lipo, the office is clean and quick. If you need a doctor, I recommend you look elsewhere.
Professional and friendly staff!
Best doctor I've had. Unfathomably above and beyond.
I mostly met with another doctor there, maybe his assistant? They were nice. I got blood work done and a few days later Dr. Liakeas emailed me two PDF's— one with all of my test results, and one with what each test meant and what the healthy ranges are.
Yeah, he was off the charts good. I read all of the good reviews and was pretty skeptical, but he followed through. I just got back from an appointment with him and I plan on using him for many years to come.
He is one of the best in that he takes time to get to know you, and cares about you as a patient. I am very happy going to him, and he has really been a life saver as far as my experiences go with doctors in NYC.
First time seeing a doctor in this country. The experience was perfect and all my apprehensions were gone in seconds.
My visit went extremely well. The wait time was short and the staff was pleasant.
Wonderful service, as always, and he saw me right away. Got me all up to date on immunizations for an upcoming trip.
I now use his office as a primary care doc. The wait can suck but at the same time, I walked in there few times with out an appointment and they squeezed me in. They are very quick. I am not sure I would go there for serious issues, but I feel it's a good place to start if you are having issues or have a cold etc. They dont waste your time which I appreciate.
Great, quick, professional and entirely helpful. A bit crowded but still entirely helpful.
Excellent service - fast and efficient!
Very professional. Cares a lot about his practice. Great doctor.
I have spent YEARS searching for a doctor I wanted to see more than once, and I'm happy to say that I've definitely found the best. He's a very personable doctor who goes above and beyond the typical "duties" of most doctors nowadays. I feel very confident in his abilities and enthusiastically recommend him.
Awesome DR, answered all my questions and quick results of bloodwork done.
Very friendly and thoroughly explained everything. Will go back again.
Dr. Liakeas is very friendly and efficient, and I look forward to seeing him again.
A PA helped me with the general appointment and was great!
Dr. Liakeas was great, saw him for pre-Trip Travel vaccination and advice. Was very helpful.
Dr. Liakeas was great. I went to see him for a cold, which I was worried might be a sinus infection or something more serious. He listened as I explained my symptoms and asked questions. He didn't tell me to take antibiotics right away, which I thought was good since so many doctors are quick to do that. Instead, he told me to take some OTC meds first and if I didn't get better in a few days, I should fill a prescription for an antibiotic that he gave. What's even better is the day after my apt he followed up with an email to see how I was feeling! He is accessible and said I can call him or email him anytime. I would definitely see him again.
He was thorough, quick, and explained everything in a refreshing manner.
