Great doctor, I am short of adjectives to describe the way he handles the patients. He spends lot of time with patient, thoroughly understands the problem and patiently explains the condition and preventive mechanisms. In my personal opinion, If you select him for your cardiology consultation, you will appreciate the decision for your life time.

Dr Insel had been my doctor previously (2005 through 2008) so I already knew that he is well regarded as a cardiologist. I was out of the country for past 3 years but now I'm back again in NY and as a result chose to return to him.

It was the first visit but my best first visit ever. The staff was very polite too which I almost never encounter. I would have liked a full physical but he did take care of my most pressing concern. I am keeping him as my primary doctor. Oh he is funny too.

Dr. Insel was very professional and explained every step of my heart exam. I am very young but have a family history full of Heart health issues so I came to Dr. Insel as my first Cardiologist to do a full check-up to make sure I am okay. He made me feel very comfortable even though I was so nervous and had no idea what a Cardiologist appointment would be like. The office needs a little re-vamping but as far as him as a doctor I will definitely be returning every 3 years to ensure my family's heart issues don't catch up to me.

Dr. Insel's bedside manner would be the primary reason that I would return. He spent a total of an hour doing a few diagnostic tests and then discussing at length questions that I had. The facility is not the newest and could use a bit of a facelift, but Dr. Insel's knowledge and concern about my well being is definitely reason enough to return and highly recommend.

Receptionist and Doctor were wonderful but unfortunetly the medical assistant that did the initial exam/tests was horribly rude and unprofessional. Overall positive experience with a knowledgable and caring doctor.
