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!

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.

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

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.

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.

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 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.

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.
