Verified Patient Reviews
I didn't have to wait long at all and he was very nice and asked a lot of questions about my allergies, which was reassuring.
I think everything in this office was perfect! The location was easy, the front desk lady was super nice, the doctor explained everything to me in a detailed manner and gave me good advice on what I needed. I will def come back!
He asked a lot of questions which he explained can be linked to my problem. Will do some testing and find the best match to make me comfortable . Can't ask for more than that
Dr Menikoff is kind, thorough, and straightforward. Highly recommended.
He was very professional, asked good questions, provided good information and helped navigate the best way to figure out my daughters allergy.
Painless shots - not a common thing. Easy, pleasant office.
Dr. Menikoff is a top allergist. He's a real doctor, who takes his time. Listens and doesn't rush you. He has empathy and a sense of humor and his injections you don't ever feel. This city is getting so hard to live in, fumes, toxins, chemicals. Everyone needs a good allergist, and this guy is tops!
Old fashioned, solid doctor. Knows his stuff. And most, very, very important, gives painless allergy shots!
He's a very good doctor. A straight shooter, with a droll sense of humor. He has a lovely receptionist, Judy, a clean office, a TV, for those not wanting to text away on their phones. And, he's in nice Fifth Avenue building, just up the block from Washington Square Park.
Very professional. I felt very confident his years of experience and careful attention.
I was so impressed with this doctor that almost want my friends to develop allergies just so they can meet Dr. Menikoff. He was so personable and spent time really getting to know what my situation was and how we were going to treat it. All this and a great sense of humour to top it off
Dr. Menikoff was very professional and quite insightful. He was very informative and was receptive to all my questions. Although as it turns out, I'm not allergic to any of the common airborne allergens, he was able to offer information on why could have triggered my acute symptoms. The office does not accept debit/credit card payments, only cash or cheques, which seemed a bit archaic and I wish I were privy to this before arriving since most offices do accept plastic. Since Dr. Menikoff wasn't yet available at the time my appointment was scheduled, I opted to walk 12 blocks to the nearest bank to get some cash for my copayment, by the time I came back to settle the payment, he was available and I was seen immediately. The experience with the doctor was pleasurable...the receptionist could be a bit more welcoming though
He's a wonderful, old fashioned doctor. Attentive. Kind. Funny. And really knows his stuff. I highly recommend.
Dr. Menikoff has been my allergist for over a year, and the last three months I've really needed him. An astute and honest clinician, and a caring doctor, with a terrific sense of humor, and the ability to give painless injections. His receptionist Judy is lovely and helpful. His office is on the first floor, right off Washington Square Park. Dr. Menikoff is first rate in all way.
Excellent communication and patience. Provided thoughtful advice.
Very thorough. Honest, and gave me options. He was also patient and explained my allergies, and remedy options.
Good visit. Assistant was accommodating with my insurance being out of network. Doctor was straight forward and proposed a plan for me to deal with my spring allergies. Only first visit, but so far I am pretty happy.
love him! he takes some getting used to but once you get to know him you'll love him too.
Very clean office with excellent staff. Incredibly minimal wait time and everyone was very professional. Highly recommended.
Dr Menikoff is a terrific, old fashioned, smart, kind doctor with a sense of humor, and gives painless allergy shots. What more could you ask as we head into spring?
He was very helpful and gave me a lot of good recommendations!
He was very patient and took all precautions to rule out any possibilities even though my situation was minor he took it seriously. I love that he explained everything in lamens terms.
he was very informative, and helpful and i soon have another appointment so should go good as well.
Very frank, with a brittle, wry sense of humor that you may have to be in the mood for.
Very nice office and location. Extremely experienced allergist and very professional. Been in the profession for almost 28 years!
He cares about the patients. Not just about $ and referrals. Very nice and genuinely concerned for my well being. Treated me for a short term emergency issue but addressed my long term allergy problems and was able to squeeze me in for a follow up allergy check up and after that an allergy test.
Dry sense of humor, but highly professional and patient. Answered all questions but felt like an interview as I was made to sit across his desk instead of an examination room.
He's a wonderful, old fashioned, kind-hearted doctor, who's knowledgable, thorough and like the other reviewers say you do not feel his allergy shots,which is a big, big plus and reason to recommend him. This is a respectable doctor's office, not an allergy mill, like some of the others places I've visited, where a nurse handles you and you don't even get to see a Doctor. Here you are seen by the Doctor every time you visit. A First Rate Allergist.
Dr. Menikoff is an attentive, excellent doctor. And, important to me, his allergy injections are pain free! You don't even realize you've had one. The office is neat and clean. There's never more than a few minute wait, but that's OK, as he has always has good gossip magazines in his waiting room, which are always a treat.
I've seen him twice now and will continue to see him for my allergies. He's professional, intelligent, thoughtful, kind, explains everything, and gives painless injections! He's also got a slightly wry sense of humor which I appreciate. His receptionist is lovely and his office is a block from Washington Sq Park. I heartily recommend Dr. Menikoff.
Smart, gave me all the time I wanted to discuss background and symptoms in his office prior to exam room. Very competent
Dr. Menikoff has literally changed my life. I can see how some other commenters can see his as a bit abrupt (I personally don't but different personalities, etc.) but he really does have a heart of gold and I appreciate his no-nonsense approach. He has helped me deal with my terrible allergies and allowed me avoid another nasal polyp surgery. I refer everyone to him - he's the best!
Dr Menikoff is great. He's extremely knowledgable and very comforting. I have never been in such a well run doctor's office before. I feel like I am in a small town not Manhattan.
it was a mixed bag. bedside manners odd/strange to say the least. but was seen right away and given advice that worked to cover my symptoms but not necessarily get to the root of my problems (chronic hives)
Dr Menikoff was ready for me when I arrived and spent a lot of time going over everything. I felt very informed and like I finally met a doctor who wanted me to get to the bottom of my allergy issues. He's very accommodating and very knowledgeable. There was a slight confusion with my follow up visit but other than that it was a great experience. I'd highly recommend him.
I thought Dr Menikoff was very patient, very knowledgable and very helpful. He made me feel like he was on my side and was going to help me get my allergies in check.
Extremely knowledgeable man! Wonderful doctor ! I will recommend this doctor to any of my family and friends looking for an allergist .
Good doctor and works really fast. Not at all like the typical Brooklyn doctors who overbook purposely just to see more patients. I highly recommend Dr. Menikoff.
Waste of time and my co-pay
Was really great with my two kids; had them speak for themselves and took a lot of time explaining things to them and letting them ask questions. Highly recommended!
Dr. Menikoff was extremely knowledgeable and explain exactly what was going on with me. He was, as he described it, "conservative but not alarmist." When you have a concern about an allergy, the last thing you want is to have your physician act equally as concerned. Dr. Menikoff explained that my case was not interesting clinically, which is probably more reassuring than just about anything else he could have said. He spent time to explain things and answered all of my questions.
He is very upfront about everything. He takes the time to explain concepts, and always gives the client choices. No wait and a respectful receptionist, can't ask for any more.
The office did not have a record of my appointment and neither did the doctor, but he saw me anyway.
The visit with Dr. Menikoff was very good and thorough. He answered all questions and took his time and was not rushed. The only problem was that the office had no record of the appointment..they did fit my wife in though. Please look into this for me. Thanks, Peter Fanuele
UNPROFESSIONAL. He made snap judgements about why I was getting headaches without even performing a physical exam or asking me a series of questions. Also suggested that getting tested was a waste of time. He took a phone call with a patient while I was in the room and was also rude and short with them.
I felt more informed about what my medical status and he was very professional and understanding
Doctor Menikoff is one of the best medical professionals I have ever met. He's patient, listens and explains the course of action. Highly recommend.
I think it was wonderful. He went above and beyond for me. I am truly grateful that I am using him as my allergist.
In general, I do not feel comfortable when a doctor does not consult with his/her patient before doing something. You know what I mean...you are sitting there, waiting to talk about your medical situation and the doctor just starts preparing tests? This guy gave me the wrong tests - I requested food allergy tests, he ran environmental allergy tests. I went back many times and never felt that I got any actual diagnosis for what I went in for: a breathing issue. Also put me on more than one medication at the same time. Hundreds of dollars later, now I know I am allergic to ragweed and dust mites. Great. Not going back.
I would recommend Dr. Menikoff to anyone looking for an allergist. He is well-informed in his field and knows exactly what questions to ask to figure out what to do next. He also gave me ample time to ask my own questions. He responded to my questions to the best of his knowledge and was very honest. Also, the wait time was almost non-existent. I filled out the first-time patient paperwork, sat down and got right back up (and then sat down in the doctor's office).
Very knowledgable, accessable, and professional.
Dr Menikoff is the best, highly recommended.
he is a very carelss dr. When I went to him the second time bc of the same problem that I was having, he asked me to call him next time and not make an appointment (in a very unprofessional way)- I was having severe skin sensitivity and hives, and all he rec was over the counter Allegra, WITHOUT even any blood work to find out what really is wrong with me. I would NEVER go back
He listsens to what you have to say and knew just how to help.
Dr. Menikoff is very friendly, accessible, and a great listener.
Dr. Menikoff saw me right away, listened to my entire history, and was able to prescribe exactly what I needed. I walked out feeling better already after having him diagnose and treat my asthma symptoms. He's been amazing in follow-up as well. Highly recommended.
I was favorably impressed with his range of knowledge, his ability and willingness to listen and to explain. I felt I was in good hands.
Very attentive and thorough.
I would highly recommend Dr. Menikoff!
Dr. Menikoff is very professional and super nice. He was attentive and responsive to my issues, and I'd highly recommend him.
