Verified Patient Reviews
Professional and courteous. It was quick.
Felt very comfortable with Dr. Crespin.
Had a problem saw Dr Crespin few days ago problem solved who can ask for anything more.
I had a severe gastro problem - bloating to the size of Santa Claus when I ate ANYTHING; no bowel movements and little urination; and severe and constant pain.I found a local Gastro, who was very nice, He took my blood pressure, blood and stool samples, examined me thoroughly and booked me for a CT Scan after discussing some options of what it may or may not be that was causing this sudden illness. However, his office later informed me he did not take my insurance, so I needed to find another Gastro. I saw Dr Crespin because he was listed as a PCP AND as a Gastroenterologist, and I needed both. He refused to take me on as a PCP and without touching me booked me for a 2-days-later colonoscopy, telling me to drink only fluids and then a large amount of some laxative the night before. Being over 50, I said OK, but still needed my initial illness treated. I had the colonoscopy, he returned and said I was "all clear" and sing-sang "we'll be in touch" as he strolled away from my bed. "Hey", I shouted, "I still have this problem - I can't go to the bathroom without a laxative the day before, can barely urinate and am in constant pain and bloated.!" "Try Prilosec" he shouted back as he left the open ward. Prilosec is for acid reflux, not a gastro-blockage, which it transpires is most likely a parasite in my case. He has the bedside manner of a goat who sees you as another money-filled opportunity to do a colonoscopy...and nothing else. Don't be fooled by his Harvard Degree on the wall - all the gangster's Lawyers in Jack Lemon/Marilyn Monroes's movie "Some Like it Hot" were "Ha'aavrd Men" - and they were money-hungry goats too! PS, the very nice gastro, who did not take my insurance, actually phoned with my results. Now THAT is a doctor who cares and believes in "First, do no harm..."
Dr. Crespin was great, efficient, and knowledgeable. He addressed all my concerns. Staff was friendly, too.
Detailed and through was able to review the labs i brought in. Gave me some treatment for several days which i will use and see if it solves a chronic problem.
Very good doctor, highly recommend.
I visited Dr Crespin two weeks ago because of an illness. He took blood work and advised I would receive results by the end of that week. After 1.5 weeks, I still had not received results so I called his office to ask them to provide the results. I finally received the e-files but still have not been contacted by Dr. Crespin or anyone from his office directly regarding the results and a treatment plan. I called the office this afternoon and was informed by someone who sounds like he is at a call center that Dr Crespin would give me a call when he is in office. But yet still no word.... Two weeks with no follow up is unacceptable. I am planning to take my results to my previous primary care physician.
Great doctor. Really like him. EXTREMELY knowledgeable.
I've seen many Doctors in my life but this is the first time a doctor BARELY looked at me. He was training a young woman and explaining things to her about me instead of explaining things to me. It was the strangest experience. Dr. Crespin seemed like a decent person. He did not though take my history adequately. I find when a doctor does an odd thing he does not want me as a patient. I would never recommend him.
Clean space, very helpful assistants, experienced doctor who answered my questions.
The doctor was not very personable or welcoming. It was very much question and answer.
Excellent experience. Dr. Crespin is attentive, caring and has a wonderful bedside manner. Highly recommend!
Excellent doctor. Personal, really cares about patient and is quick and to the point.
Unprofessional. After having a high school student examine me (and offering mo explanaion of what he or she were doing), he began googling my symptoms. He also promised go call in a prescription for me THREE times and never did, and never returned my calls to his office
Dr Crespin is a fantastic doctor! Incredibly professional, and very empathetic. He knows when he can help and when to refer you to other specialists. I'm so glad I found him!
Excellent! Seems very knowledgeable, took time and asked lots of questions. Highly recommended.
I AM HAPPY I FOUND HIM, SO FAR SO GOOD.
Very Concerned about my health and scheduled me for a test right away
excellent doctor, very pleasant staff...
My wait time was virtually nonexistent. The checkin process is automated and extremely thorough (but paper is available as well) and included information which Dr Crespin reviewed prior to my appointment. His bedside mannar was great. Overall this was a great experience.
My visit with Dr.Crespin was great and reassuring . All my questions and concerns were answered thoroughly . His admin was very profressional and helpful . The wait time was incredible .
Knowledgeable, friendly, and time efficient.
The doctor is very nice and friendly but he wasn't able to figure out the problem to my stomachache. He simply prescribed some pain relief medicines for me. The wait at the office was also quite long.
Dr Crespin's office is well-run and very efficient. I was seen right away. His office does blood draws which is a major plus for me because I don't have the time to go to a lab for a separate appointment. All my results come through a portal, which gives me easy and timely access to my medical records
The doctor is kinda rude and didn't pay attention to me - he was texting while talking to me, and even made calls. I had to repeat myself several time because he was texting someone. The worst is.. he didn't tell what is wrong with my stomach and gave me medicines without doing any checks on me... I felt confused... Anyway, maybe it is Friday and he was hasty.
The receptionist was so nice and helpful, check in was an absolute breeze. Their new office is great and comfortable and clean. Dr. Crespin was kind, efficient, and understanding.
The doctor was very knowledgeable and practical. He heard what I was feeling and prescribed me medication. He doesn't talk or explain much but he's really efficient.
Had a great first appointment with dr. Crespin! For our first time meeting he listened to all my concerns took the time to go over different ways to help me and I didn't feel rushed while sitting with him. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a new dr.
I was at the least glamorous of Dr Crespin's offices but was seen immediately. The front desk staff are cordial and professional. My prescription was waiting for me by the time I got to the pharmacy. Highly efficient
Dr Crespin was very friendly and a good listener. He puts medical terms in a way that is easy for anyone to understand.
Dr. Crespin was very professional and made me feel comfortable during such an awkward exam. He seems knowledgeable and doesn't rush you.
Very professional and knowledgeable doctor. Highly recommend.
Just had my first consultation with Dr. Crespin. He was kind and understanding, and communicated everything I needed to know clearly. Though the appointment was quick, I never felt rushed and walked away feeling like he thoroughly understood my GI issues. Highly recommend!
Doctor Crespin is probably one of the smartest doctors I know. He is one of those people that when you have a conversation with him you realize how brilliant he is. being new to the city I went to 3 doctors who all told me they couldn't help me to go to someone else. Doctor Crespin knew of a medication right off the top of his head when I was describing what was happening and it has given me a renewed work-life/ home life etc. also his office is run very efficiently the three times I've been so far I have been in an out in an hour.
Dr. Crespin is highly knowledgeable, with excellent bedside manner.
He was great, knowledgable and professional!
It was nice to see someone I knew before the visit
Dr. Crespin is a pro.
I've visited Dr. Crespin many times, both in his capacity as a gastroentrologist and a general practitioner. In every case he has been incredibly helpful and the advice he has given has been on point. He is very responsive to questions on ZocDoc and by email which is very rare and much appreciated.
Quick, efficiate, nice, knowledgeable!
He is through and kind and he knows what he is doing
Very nice staff,love the technology at signing in. Doc Crespin listens to your concerns, he's very thorough and I didn't feel rushed,as if he needed to go to next patient, first visit .
For the past few days my chest/sternum hurt every time I ate or drank something. I was able to book an appointment on Thursday evening for Friday. Dr. Crespin was great - the office has computerized boards in their rooms so he could zoom in and show me what was happening (ulcer, heart burn) and answered all my questions. If things didn't get better, he said he'll fit me in first thing Monday morning. Just incredible!
Got right to the point and assured me I was going to be okay. He patiently answered all my questions. Very thorough!
Thoughtful and gentle, he was great and I'd definitely go back and highly recommend.
I was a little disappointed in the lack of follow up I received. Went in because of a condition I've been dealing with for a while. Agreed to have blood sent to the lab... then nothing. No follow up... Nothing. If nothing was wrong great, but a phone call would have been nice.
Dr Jeffrey Crespin is great.
Dr Crespin dealt with my issues in a comprehensive and timely fashion. I would highly recommend him to any one looking for an a caring knowledgeable doctor.
Jeffrey was very easy to talk to and made me feel comfortable about the switch to his practice after moving to New York. I will be going to him as my primary care physician as well. He does it all!
Overall, not recommended. Reasons: 1) There is no follow-ups after the examination or procedure, they just give you the paper results without explaining why does it mean. We are not professional, we need to know what does it stand for. 2) After the examination, as a patient I did not feel any better and I think this is the doctor's responsibility to make their patient recover. Thanks.
Good overall experience
If you're visiting him for primary care in hopes for a diagnosis here is what you need to know: Not relatable. Not thourough. Doesn't listen.
Dr. Crespin was very thorough in his history taking and examination and he made some follow up testing. He is also a very kind doctor.
I did not have a good experience. First, he Inflated the blood pressure cuff, but forgot where was the stethoscope. Second, he drew blood, but did not know where to put the blood tubes. In the meantime, the needle was still in me. No alcohol pad, and no gloves were used. Third, there was no time for me to speak with him about all my concerns. Instead, he jumped to conclusions.
Unfocused, short attention span, not very caring or into getting to the solution of the real issue.
This was my first visit. The staff and Dr. Crespin were very professional and courteous.
Dr. Crespin was helpful and supportive as always. I've seen him several times since moving to NY, and he always listens and provides useful advice and, when necessary, referrals. Great doc!
My wait times at Dr. Crespin's office are always minimal and his staff is always kind and professional. His bedside manner is great, he is attentive and always leaves me plenty of time to ask questions. I always get lab results back in a very timely manner too. I've been seeing Dr. Crespin for years and highly recommend him.
He's a cool guy and a great doctor
Dr. Crespin is terrific and thoughtful.
Great experience. Dr. Crespin was friendly, timely, and knowledgeable. I felt very comfortable with his ability to provide appropriate medical care
The doctor visit was smooth and to the point. He was easy to talk to and clear about his views. He was also efficient in all of the procedures (just a normal check up). The receptionist is terrible though. Very unfriendly, bad attitude and looks like she could not be bothered to be helpful. Really had no concept on how to do her job.
Very nice, accommodating, and to the point. Had a thorough, quick and fulfilling visit. I plan on returning.
Great. to the point.
Dr. Crespin is an excellent physician. He is extremely dedicated to his work and is invested in the success and well-being of his patients. The office on East 61st street is lovely and well-appointed. Finally, Dr. Crespin's staff are friendly and supportive. This is a great practice!
seemed unprofessional, did not listen to my concerns.
Absurdly messy and unprofessional office environment. Dirty and disorganized. Scary
While the office visit was fine, it has been three months since my visit and I am still waiting for my blood results. Additionally, the contact number seems to be disconnected and I have no way of following up with this clinic. Terrible follow through by what could have been a good doctor
Was Great! Big fan of Doctor Crespin.
Great! So happy with my new doctor: caring and personable. Very nice and helpful staff: nurse and receptionist.
Dr. Crespin is an amazing doctor! He is professional, experienced, and brilliant, and unlike other physicians of his caliber, he takes the time to actually listen to his patients. I highly recommend Dr. Crespin.
A bit of a longer wait time than usual burn always a pleasure with Dr. Crespin!
Dr. Crespin was great: very thorough, yet efficient. Did not waste any time and I was in and out in about 45 minutes - but did not feel at all rushed. Overall was a great experience and would highly recommend.
He didn't seem very well prepared for my appointment, and his record system is a bit jumbled, but he took time to answer my questions.
He was nice and helped me figure out an insurance problem without me having to reschedule.
I cannot say it was perfect. Due to my general doctor writing the referral incorrectly, And then Dr. Jeffrey would not take me in until the referral was faxed over. That's why sometimes you know when the doctors passion about what he does or they just in it for the money.
Not the cleanliest space, felt a bit rushed, overall satisfactory but wouldn't return for a second visit. The staff was friendly and attentive.
Dr. Crespin saw me almost immediately. I had an efficient, yet thorough appointment, and really appreciated his bedside manner.
He is curtious and professional, his understanding of conditions made me feel better .
To the point. Thorough. Got me to a referral doc whom I really like. Good experience
My first review ever at 46. I'm a tough judge. This doc is great. Seen him for years. Highly recommended.
Dr Crespin was very professional and informative.
I had a very pleasant experience with Dr. Crespin. He is nice, to-the-point, and knowledgeable. I will definitely be back to see him for future appointments.
I arrived early; wanted to get paperwork completed. My appt was 3:30 PM. He was right on time. Very friendly and informative. I would return
No wait time. Very friendly and knowledgeable. Will be seeing again in the future.
Very fast yet efficient.
Offices are pretty bad, but the doctor and his staff were fantastic.
I had a great experience. The staff was friendly and efficient. My wait was minimal and Dr Crespin was incredibly professional and friendly.
The doctor was not paying attention at anything I was saying, he just heard one thing and prescribed a medicine to cover that symptom (not to make it better).
Very satisfied with my visit. The staff are very nice and the doctor listened to everything I had to say.
A good physician. Appears to have expertise and skill for my procedure.
I am a returning patient, his manner is caring and professional he ask questions and listens to your health concerns.
Dr. Crespin is a great doctor. I was seen right away, we discussed any and all concerns. He asked me several follow-up questions. He was thorough, professional, and very kind. I highly recommend this physician.
Efficient and well mannered as usual. 61st office is a nice space. Great doctor.
Never going back to see this nut job!
Dr. Crespin took time to listen and answer all of my questions. He was thoughtful and attentive.
He's a great doctor.
Great doc. Really like.
Very solid doctor -- competent diagnostician, organized, thorough and kind.
On the quieter side, was not terribly sociable but nice and straight to the point. Was in and out with a prescription in 20 minutes.
Very thorough and intelligent - made me feel very comfortable.
Doc was professional. Not sure why ZocDoc did not share my insurance and health info to the provider. I need to fill out the info at office all over again.
The doctor was very professional and asked for the reasons i chose to come for a check up. He greeted me in the waiting area while i worked on the check-in tablet.
There was no time wait whatsoever. Dr. Crespin and his colleague who took my vitals were both great. I felt i wasn't rushed out of the office, i got a chance to ask all my questions and i will be going back next month for a follow up. I would definitely recommend Dr Crespin to friends and family.
I went in for a physical and everything went smoothly. The staff is kind and Dr. Crespin was pleasant and consultative throughout the check-up.
Very professionnal, attentive and didactic.
I felt like he had been my director for years. He really made me feel comfortable and at ease. His insight was impeccable. His willingness to help was so refreshing. He answered every question and provided additional information which was very important to me be able to do more research on my own.
This was my first visit. Dr Crespin is an excellent physician.
Nice guy. Very informative.
My wait was a bit longer than expected because I was 20 minutes late for my appointment. Appreciate the staff and Dr Crespin fitting me regardless. Fast and efficient. Love it.
He was very short with me.
Great doctor. No nonsense.
Dr Crespin is friendly and highly competent.
His staff esp Alex was great
Dr. Crespin is great. Always quick and very professional.
An excellent doctor who i both attentive and kind.
Friendly, informative. Able to answer all of my questions.
really is helpful his staff was great and I was helped as a patient and as a person
Dr. Crespin is very friendly and professional. His office near Columbus circle is small and unassuming, but cozy. I've been seeing him for about a year and a half now, and am a very happy patient!
Mr Crespin was great. The wait time was a little long but it seems that's the general case in most offices.
Professional and very knowledgeable.
Amazing compassionate doctor with a great bedside manner. Answered all of my questions thoroughly and intelligently. Highly recommended.
My visit was very disappointing. Dr, Crespin seemed like a nice guy, but I was confused and frustrated when, after explaining my symptoms, Dr. Crespin said "Well, if you Google it..." and then proceeded to show me a website that listed a possible condition with my symptoms. I understand that dr's use Google, and I also reference Google for my own job, but I didn't expect to be paying for and seeing a specialist if he's going to be referring me to Google. When I asked about a possible lifestyle change which may help my symptoms, the dr. produced a crumpled paper and half explained what was on it, in a very general way leaving me with no clear answers. Again, I can follow up and do my own research, but I would expect more from a specialist. He also didnt seem to be interested in a particular treatment, just generalities. Maybe I expected too much, but I wouldnt go back
The registration process was honest and easy, and the doctor's visit itself was very professional and kind. Doctor Crespin has excellent bedside manner and was very helpful.
Dr. Crespin was very good and took time to answer all of my questions. The entire staff in his office was also very professional and helpful. I don't know if this is the norm, but I was actually seen by the doctor BEFORE my appointment time (I arrived early to fill out paperwork as a new patient). I was very happy with my visit and will definitely return in the future.
Dr. Crespin was prompt, extremely knowledgable and made me feel feel very comfortable. He answered all of my questions and concerns and I would definitely recommend!
Dr. Crespin in an expert GI doctor. He answers questions patiently and spends significant time with each patient.
No complains. The doctor and the rest of the team made me feel comfortable, safe and in good hands.
I love Dr. CRESPIN!!!!!
From start to finish, was very impressed. Check-in was seamless and relatively painless. Physical exam was thorough and each test was explained before/during. I would highly recommend Dr. Crespin.
Kind & knowledgeable. Asked pertinent questions. Sound recommendations.
It was excellent and went well, the Doctor is of high experience and very human and patient.
Front desk assistant was very pleasant. Dr. Crespin was polite, quick and to the point.
I was impressed that Dr C was able to accommodate me on such short notice. His staff was very kind, helpful and efficient. Everything ran smoothly with his electronic check in, hardly any wait time and he took his time to hear me out. I was able to tell him what was going on, he was able to educate me and provide me with various routes on how to alleviate what i was experiencing. He was able to send the meds i needed to the pharmacy while i was consulting with him, set me up with a patient portal so my results and himself would always be accessible and my pharmacy was able to verify my prescription on the spot. I would recommend him to friends and family. My mother just set up a pre appointment for a screening colonoscopy. I trust the doc and he will be my "Go To" whenever my health is concerned.
Good listener - spent plenty of time reviewing and explaining to me my condition
Dr. Crespin was very personable, engaging, and knowledgeable. I was taken care of and out of the office in under 40 minutes, which I really appreciated. I'd highly recommend him if you're looking for a new primary care physician!
Never before have I felt so neglected by a doctor. First, the door to open the office doesn't work. It appears to be locked so when you press the buzzer to be let, an exasperated staff member barks, "It's open!" over the PA. The wait time was to be expected for a first (and last) time patient. I waited about 45 minutes to be seen. Dr. Crespin himself was fine. I was diagnosed and given a prescription. The real issue came when I went to fill my prescription. The pharmacist needed to substitute a component and needed Dr. Crespin's permission. It was at this point that he made himself unavailable. The pharmacist attempted to make contact with Dr. Crespin multiple times throughout the day and left two messages with his staff. When I went to pick up my prescription 3 hours later I was forced to attempt to contact Dr. Crespin myself. When I got through to his office I was told by his staff that he would call my pharmacist within 15 minutes. I called back in 20 when he didn't. I was then told 5 minutes. I called back in 10 when he STILL hadn't called. This played out until his office closed and I was sent through to voicemail. So here I am with an untreated condition, and I will NEVER see this doctor again due to the unprofessionalism of his staff.
LOVE LOVE DR. CRISPIN!!!
It was good up to my satisfaction
He is a busy doctor. He might have all the knowledge but he is not organised. He doesnt have the patience to listen to all that you have to explain(which is the most important). It took me 2 weeks to get my lab results and that too I had to maker many calls. I wont go here again.
As is always the case, Dr. Crespin is a fabulous diagnostician, incredibly knowledgible, always timely and has a wonderful bedside manner.
Easy to talk to and no waiting room time.
I love Dr. Crespin I've recommended him to everyone I know who is looking for a Gastro Doc....He's the best!!!! Frank his assistant is awesome!!
Knowledgable. Great listener. Highly recommended.
Beautiful new office on 63rd street. Waited all of 20 seconds before Dr Crespin was ready to see me. He's eet knowledgeable, thoughtful, and really listens well. Highly recommended.
I went to the midtown office which is a bit cramped but the service was good and the doctor was very prompt and thorough.
Friendly and professional, though the visit itself proceeded a little slowly.
I got blood work and the doctor has yet to call me about my results. I have been calling and leaving messages with his receptionist, and still nothing!!!!!!
He was very good. He saw me very fast and explained everything well. The procedure was performed expertly.
First time visit. They had electronic records system, so check in was very quick. The doctor was very understanding and provided the medical care i needed right away.
Doctor Crespin seems to be careless... Towards the end he was checking his smart phone while I was putting on my jacket but still asking him questions... Examination was ok..
Very professional and was very helpful. I downloaded the new patient forms from the site so there was no paperwork to fill out when I arrived and I was seen in a few minutes. Quick exam but very thorough. Will definitely recommend to friends.
He was great! Very friendly and knowledgable and has you in and out quickly. Highly recommended.
Dr. Crespin was very kind. He listened to my concerns.
I found Dr. Crespin to be extremely professional and look forward a lasting relationship with his practice.
Excellent visit - quick and professional. Would highly recommend for a midtown GP.
Great Doctor and you never have to wait long!
I had a great visit with Dr. Crespin. He listened to my problem as it had developed over time and was open to ideas. I hope to have a great experience with the follow up if necessary.
Felt rushed; the doctor ran in and out of the exam room a bunch of times. Good doctor, though, even if the visit was a bit hectic.
I never received my blood report and just confused with the whole set up.
I am so glad I visited him. He is very patient and spends time to listen to your condition.
I left the consultation with the pb I had when I arrived. No call to share news from my medical exam.
Friendly, knowledgable, and very helpful
Dr. Crespin is a cracker jack diagnostician; as such he zeroes in on the problem very quickly. Although I like the convenience of seeing him at his 47th st office (which is a maize of space), his new office on East 61st street near 2nd Avenue is AMAZING! The office is brand new, stylish, sleek, and best of all, at it's center is Dr. Crespin!!! I've had many doctors with many specialties, and Dr. Crespin is the best.....with his knowledge, office management, and bedside manner.
Really positive experience... Dr. Crespin is very smart and friendly. He took the time to explain everything in layman's terms and answer all of my follow up questions. Very responsive via e-mail/phone.
Very friendly team. Dr Crespin was a great help
He is the most amazing doctor I have ever deal with and I would recommend anyone to go see him. He is a true professional
He answered all my questions and suggested a reasonable strategy. I did not feel rushed.
Friendly and provided me with clear and detailed information related to my ailment.
I went to the doctor because of a bad cold and was afraid I had bronchitis. His office in conveniently located in midtown. Doctor performed the exam, did everything that was needed.
Dr. Crespin didn't listen to my concerns. I saw him because I have moderate to severe lower back pain that occurs 2-3 times per year and I wanted to find out why I have this reoccurring problem. My pain starts at random, not while heavy lifting or by doing anything abnormal. Dr. Crespin just assumed I wanted pain meds and wrote me a prescription after just 3 questions or so. Perhaps he saw my visit as a good opportunity to make up time as he was falling behind on his appointments or maybe he is just used to drug-seeking behavior and didn't care or both. I went in seeking a diagnosis for my back problem and perhaps a physical therapy prescription but left with a pain med prescription I don't plan on filling and an unneeded bill for visiting a doctor.
Efficient without feeling rushed. Smart physician with good bedside manner. Highly recommend.
he was good but i waited for almost half an hour to see him
I was just in for a physical so it is hard to judge, but he was professional. offer insight, and did well.
Dr. Crespin is by far the best PCP I've ever had. His offices are always very clean, and his staff is always extremely nice and helpful. He sees me right away every time I schedule an appointment. He always knows what the proper treatment should be for any ailment I've had, and is very reassuring and pleasant.
Fast visit, quick diagnosis, no wait. Overall a great experience.
Dr. Crespin is a superb doctor!
I was seen by the doctor right at the time of my appointment. He answered all of my questions and seamlessly renewed my prescriptions. I was in and out in a jiffy!
Great guy at the front desk. Efficient. Good doctor.
Dr Crespin has been my doctor for a few years now. He is thorough and will take care of your needs.
This is my third time seeing him-highly recommend!
It wasnt bad it was more good but i seen better looking offices, when he drew blood he miss my veins a couple of times his phlebotomist was able to get my obvious veins but he cool i would give it 4 stars not 5
Did not strike me as particularly knowledgeable - used Wikipedia in front of me for my diagnosis.
Great customer service from his assistant. Excellent treatment from Dr. Crespin. Overall, very professional and knowledgeable. My new primary care physician.
This appointment was rushed and the examination was poor. He asked me basic questions, told me take probiotics and that was it. I had to ask him to draw blood and have a blood test done - I was still in so much pain the next couple of days that I had to see a different doctor, who diagnosed me with a stomach virus, prescribed me medication and now i'm better. I wouldn't recommend this doctor.
Friendly, warm and extremely professional. Also fast and efficient!
The office itself has papers stacked everywhere, which felt off to me. Dr. Crespin gave me was kind of rude on the phone when I asked about my results. Not an amazing experience.
Dr Jeffery was extremely helpful and very friendly. I recommend highly.
Fantastic Doctor, explained everything well, and the procedure went perfectly
Office staff was friendly, paperwork was minimal especially considering it was my first visit, and Dr. Crespin was prompt and highly professional. Very highly recommended.
DR. CRESPIN IS A GREAT DR., HIS RECEPTIONIST IS ALSO VERY NICE. THIS APPT. WAS AS I SPECTED, FAST AND DIRECTLY OVER THE POINT.
It was my first time visit and I appreciate Dr. Crespin. He listened, reviewed my previous medical records and went through them with me. I was happy he took blood and gave me a sample to test to see if it will help with my problems. He answered all my questions regarding future tests and ways to get me back to great health. I am due back in 2 weeks and I look forward to my improvement.
A very capable and affable doctor, but his facilities (on 47th St) were cramped and in poor condition, even by NYC standards.
Doc didn't make eye contact, he was in rush. Overall not a good experience. Didn't provide correct explanations to the problem
Very friendly and patient. No wait time.
Very prompt, professional, and great bedside manner. Excellent followup.
Great--very friendly and thorough.
Efficient and informed
Not from NYC, had an issue - Dr Crespin was readily accessible, no wait at appointment time and he addressed my issue.
Really nice and great bedside manners.
Great! He was efficient and knew what he was talking about!
Frustrating. Listed concerns, received some answers. Did not go over everything needed, felt rushed. Now have to go see another doctor for confirmation of what was not covered.
Really smart guy I felt very comfortable with him during my first visit there. Would definitely recommend.
I love Dr. Crespin his bedside manner is the best!!!
Very knowledgeable and very helpful addressing all my health concerns. Would recommend.
Dr. Crespin was kind, thorough, and really seems to care about his patients. He is best doctor I have found since moving to the city, and I would recommend him to anyone!
Would of been better off going to a Walgreens Pharmacist for advice.
Pleasant bedside manner. He responds to his emails within 24hrs, I had a colonoscopy performed. I would definitely return to him in the future .
Short ,sweet, and to the point. Great doctor for those tight on time.
I had a 4:30 appointment and was seen at 4:40pm. Dr. Crespin got straight to the point, did his diagnosis and explained what was going on. I will definitely be back.
Dr Crespin was great. I'd recommend him to my friends. He took me right away and answered all my questions.
This was my first visit and everything went quickly and easily. I filled out a few new patient forms and was seen right away. Dr. Crespin was thorough and pleasant. I am not one to visit doctors frequently but will definitely be using him as my GP from here on.
Dr Crespin was friendly and helpful. He had my data from a visit almost four years ago, which was helpful.
Office in cramped, old and oddly situated space. Doctor seemed distracted by something else, and intent on getting me out as soon as possible.
Very attentive and objective. Will certainly return.
I love Dr Crespin but when I made an appointment at 830am I figured I wouldn't have to wait a long time. Unfortunately, I wasn't seem until 9 :( which made me miss the train I was hoping to catch so I was 45 minutes later to work then expected. Other than that, he always answers all of my questions and gives me free samples of my medication which is really nice. Worth the wait.
My visit with Dr. Crespin was excellent. I was a new patient and the digital registration was smooth and easy to use. Ask soon as I completed check-in process the doctor saw me immediately. He was really nice and professional.
Terrible doctor!!! Would not recommend. Office dirty and did not follow up on my result.
Very nice guy, however I did not feel like he wanted to be there. He quickly asked a few question, examined me, and then had an open discussion about my symptoms outside of closed doors with his secretary next to him, which I felt was an invasion of my privacy. I appreciated his quick recommendations for over the counter products which will save me money on my prescription items, but the overall experience felt rushed rather than personal. Overall, nice doc, however the experience was little less than ideal.
Dr. Crespin was always attentive and very helpful with all my medical concerns.
Great doctor. Went for a routine physical and Dr. Crespin took the time to answer all my questions. I would highly recommend him to a friend.
Very friendly and helpful, and great at listening.
Dr. Crespin was attentive, professional, and polite!
Professional, knowledgeable, approachable. Procedures were explained in understandable terms. Was able to schedule colonoscopy to fit into my schedule. Waiting room was small and packed with people, but there are four doctors sharing reception and most for waiting for the other doctors. I got in relatively quickly and office consult and exam rooms were clean and comfortable with views out to Central Park.
He's great! He really cares about double-checking his advice and using visuals to explain the background. Highly recommend.
He's very nice and knowledgable. His staff is great too!
Dr. Crespin is a great GI specialist and very current on research in his field. I appreciate that he takes time to answer questions and explain about medical problems. He is the only doctor I know of who responds promptly to emails and texts from patients. I have recommended him to others, and they have also been impressed. He has several offices in Manhattan, in different midtown and uptown locations, both West and East Side, which is convenient.
Staff is professional and courteous.
Dr's office was small - not the cleanest, looked like an apt. building. The rooms were very tiny, cramped and didn't feel clean. The office is weird - I wouldn't want to come here for anything else, just needed a quick annual check up. The Dr. was nice, friendly quick and knowledgeable. The staff in the front was nice - I smelled cigs and that was a big turn off for me. I'm very big on appearance, office layout and CLEAN is big for me.
First time I made an appointment with Dr. Crespin, I made a mistake and thought he was a primary doctor. However, he was nice and prescribed the medicine I needed. Always the wait is short. The receptionist is always efficient in office and over the phone. Next time I went back for vaccine for traveling. Dr. Crespin was very nice again and explained me about vaccine very kindly and professionally. After the vaccine, Dr. Crespin's office submit claim from to my insurance company early, so I received the EOB pretty early. I appreciate this because some doctors' office submit claim form very late like I almost forget about the visit. Most of office has problem. Even though the doctor is nice, the staff is not good. Or vice versa. However, everything is great about Dr. Crespin's office.
Dr. Crespin was very personable and explained a lot of the issues I was having in great detail. I was seen within 15 minutes which was impressive. Also, I was glad that they have after work hours as most New Yorkers don't leave work at 5pm. I would recommend Dr. Crespin.
Messy and unorganized. It was just a different experience. But he did do his job and diagnosed me correctly. People at front desk were really kind.
Dr. Crespin is an excellent physician. He is well read and well versed on the most current and effective treatments. Moreover, it is obvious that he respects and cares about his patients.
Courteous and professional, listened to what I had to say and did not rush me. His assistant was also a professional and very helpful. I recommend this practice.
Excellent preparation. I was following up on something I had seen him about almost 6months ago and he knew about the whole history.
Check in was easy with a digital tablet. My appointment with Dr. Crespin was on time and he didn't rush through the exam. Great experience!
I wanted information and got it. Very open and helpful.
Dr. Jeffrey Crespin was great! He performed allergy testing on me and explained everything!
Overall a good visit. He was very helpful and listened to everything I had to say. He seems to be very direct and straightforward in his advice/diagnosis.
First appointment as I hadn't been to the doctor in a longtime and needed a new primary care physician, so went in for a basic physical. Office personnel was very professional and courteous. Dr. Crespin himself was very knowledgeable with a great bedside manner. Listened attentively, addressed my inquiries in a professional manner and in general made me feel at ease.
Professional, kind, answers questions in good detail
I have never been to a doctor who is as nice as he is knowledgable. I would recommend anyone who has access to his office to go see him. Johnny
Dr. Crespin was really helpful and didn't rush me out of the office.
Dr. Crespin is personable and efficient. We spoke about my general health and health background before my annual physical. He is frank and to the point when answering questions. And he invites questions and doesn't rush the patient. This was my first visit. I was looking for a Primary Care Physician and found one in Dr. Crespin.
Had a great experience with Dr. Crespin.
Really friendly and helpful!
this is a great doctor, thorough and professional and has a great bedside manner. My only complaint would be that I was seen at least half an hour later than the time slot I had booked.
I've been a patient of Dr. Crespin's for several years, and find him to be such an ace diagnostician that I would never use another Dr. for my primary care. He has several office locations....I've read negative things about his E. 47th St office but considering its proximity to home and work, I go there most of the time and it is a reasonable facility.
Excellent care. Highly recommended.
Painless blood work! The office layout is a little confusing but with fantastic tech to remind you and follow up.
Great doc, very knowledgable.
Wonderful physician. Very quick wait time and visit.
Dr. Crespin is fantastic. He's prompt, professional, knowledgable and very friendly. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Crespin is a gentleman and seems like a very down to earth person.
As always Dr. Crespin is thorough and an ace diagnostician, with a mannerism that is extremely congenial while remaining ultimately professional. He never speaks "medical mumbo-jumbo jargon", rather speaks in clear and explanatory terms. Since he has a few offices, it is always possible to see him at the time and place that is convenient for me.
Friendly staff, and great doctor. Was seen very quickly. Dr Crespin was extremely knowledgable and courteous. Excellent experience overall.
No complaints. He was very friendly, and he took the time to ask me in detail about what was going on and explained to me a number of possibilities and possible solutions. Would highly recommend him.
Don't be put off by the office! Dr. Crespin is great. I went for a consultation and he really listened to and analyzed every detail that I spoke about, recommended possibilities based on my symptoms, and prescribed some follow-up tests. I left feeling like I was in good hands!
Though the office could be brighter and roomier, the doctor is very professional, friendly, thorough and takes the time to answer any questions. I would recommend him.
Very good, he was patient and didn't rush at all and a nice guy.
Great bed side manner. Took time to answer all my questions and ensure that I was comfortable. I did not feel rushed and that I could take all the time I needed. Office staff are excellent. Polite and accomodating.
Dr. Crespin is really great! He's very knowledgable and easy to talk to. I will definitely be coming to him regularly.
Dr crespin took the time to thoroughly explain what was going on and the procedure he was going to preform. I am very pleased to have found him and gotten an appointment on such short notice. I would definitely recommend dr. Crespin.
I've been a patient of Dr. Crespin for more than three years. He is extremely thorough, attentive and professional. He always takes the time to answer my questions and I've never once felt rushed at his office. His receptionist, Frank, is warm and helpful too. I've always had a great experience visiting Dr. Crespin. What really sets Dr. Crespin apart is that he is a genuinely kind and compassionate person who cares about your well-being. I consider myself fortunate to have found this doctor. I highly recommend Dr. Crespin!
So happy to have landed so well He's a good doctor and I am most grateful to have found him through zocdoc
jeff is a great guy first. then he s a great doctor. he's helpful.
He squeezed me in at the last minute even when I was the one who made a booking mistake. Great guy!
As always, Jeffrey is competent and caring. I highly recommend Jeffrey as a Primary Care Physician and as a gastro specialist.
- Horrible offices: old , dark, very small, almost depressing - The doctor spent time with me and was nice but was not very attentive: while I mentioned very clearly thta I have strong pain, I had to run after him at teh end to have a pain medicine. - Did not feel very reassured after the consultation. Took an appointment with another Gastro...in 2 days
I felt that Dr. Crespin was uninterested. He only disclosed information after probing continuously, and I felt like he was just waiting for me to leave so that he could move on to his next patient.
My visit was pleasant and although I had to wait a few minutes after my appointment to be seen, Dr. Crespin was very attentive and addressed my questions/concerns very well. The only thing I would say is it would be good for the doctor and office to better delineate the procedure for a routine physical and let the patient clearly know (by way of a brochure for example) his/her choices. Great visit though!
Their billing procedure is ridiculous! Dr. Crespin refused to give me heartburn medication without doing an endoscopy. He then charged an exorbitant fee for the endoscopy and continued billing for various new charges months after the fact. They use an outside billing office which is only reachable between 10 and 2 for a few days a week. They are impossible to get in touch with, and on the rare occasion you do make contact, they are unable to provide answers. Unless you want months of annoyance in dealing with this, avoid Dr. Crespin at all costs.
Visited in March 2014. Maybe my case was very simple, or maybe I didn't explain all my symptoms particularly well. He didn't seem concerned by the fact that I have some symptoms that are unusual for the diagnosis. He was pleasant and seemed like a nice man, just didn't give me a lot of confidence in his recommendation.
This was my first time here and I had a great experience. I was in the market for a new primary physician since I was not that happy with my last primary physician. He listed to my concerns and treated me with the utmost respect. I will definitely be a returning patient
Very professional and caring. Takes a lot of time with patients. Very happy with my visit.
Great 1st visit. Prompt and courteous. Answered my questions, thorough and didn't feel rushed.
Really polite staff; automated data capture & may meant eradicates paper - very slick operation, but still has the human touch.
I liked him I
Dirty office, didn't use gloves when taking blood.
Went to Dr. Crespin for a physical and he took his time explaining everything. He was personable and I felt well cared for even after the appt. quick to be seen for my appt as well. thank you
Dr. Crespin takes his time with his patients. Office staff are a pleasure and there's never a wait time. Listens, collaborates with his patients and explains clearly his reasoning behind expert medical treatment.
he seems to be patient and listen to your complaints
Dr.Crespin was both professional and a pleasure to meet. He handled all of my concerns and alleviated my anxiety about finding a new doctor.
Really good, Dr. Crespin is really professional.
He was very informative, made me feel comfortable to discuss my issue.
As always: comprehensive, thorough, and Dr. Crespin is a cracker jack diagnostician. I am appalled to read negative comments about him due ONLY to one (of 4 ) office he shares on East 47th St. The office IS peculiar, but I see him there when I need to get in and out and off to work by 9:30 am. If one is particular about the office setting, see him at 800 Fifth Ave, or his other offices. And his g.i. procedure space on W. 55th St is state of the art, beautiful, water views, quick, efficient and everything you'd wish for if going for a colonoscopy or something similar and want to be relaxed during the procedure.
little to no wait - took the time to sit down and thoroughly address my concerns.
Dr. Crespin is smart, funny, and easy to talk to. Highly recommended!
Excellent. Will take calls / questions whenever he can and assist you with all your needs. Great to be able to reach a doctor of his caliber.
So far the coolest doctor I ever visit with most technologie savvy accountant and front desk. No nonsence like long wait for test results, outfashion checks mailed. Outstanding follow-up. He does listen to what you say, explain why he suggest a particular treatment rather then give you prescription right away.
Approachable, listens, & efficient. Got things done and was open to what i had to say. Look forward to a healthy relationship with him, as i am a new patient
Talks a little fast but he was courteous and knowledgeable
Absolutely fantastic! Dr. Crespin met me in the waiting room (which I've never had before) for my annual checkup and did all of my tests himself. Answered all of my questions and was very knowledgeable as well as kind.
First time visit to Dr. Crespin and will not hesitate to continue using him as my primary care dr. The staff was extremely friendly. Dr. Crespin asked questions outside of the problems I was having and was very thorough.
Dr. Crespin was professional and easy to talk to. I would highly recommend him.
Extremely knowledgable and personable. One of his office locations is a bit dodgy, but his staff is friendly and helpful. I saw him immediately after finishing my paperwork.
Really impressed. And I'm hard to impress. Liked him very much. No hesitation in recommending.
Very thoughtful, attentive and sharp.
Nice person. Straight forward.
Dr.Crespin is very smart, and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Never once did I feel like he was judging me. I had to take a test that was sent to the lab. I heard back from him personally within 48 hours, telling me I was fine.
Dr. Crespin is a remarkable Doctor who treats me with respect. Never a wait and always very personable and extremely intelligent.
I've always had a good experience with Dr Crespin. Always on time and never rushed.
Great Primary Care Physician!
as always, comprehensive, on target, a super diagnostician
Fantastic doctor! But that office is pretty disgusting. Supplies, inventory, and everything else jammed into every book and cranny. It looks like they're remodeling the whole office, except I think it's always been like that.
Can tell he really works hard to figure out what's wrong and makes you feel so comfortable!!
Very informative and very knowledgable in his profession.
The doctor is knowledgeable and efficient and very pleasant. Would highly recommend him. Office situation is a little unusual, but otherwise everything was fine.
Through and helpful as always
Dr. Crespin always makes me feel very comfortable. He is open to all my questions and concerns.
I had a wonderful experience at his office and with his staff
He is a great doctor and very helpful.
The appointment was just for a general checkup, which was fine. Dr Crespin was professional and pleasant. The office is a little strange, particularly the entrance, but fine inside.
No wait time and the doctor appeared knowledgable. There was no nurse and the doctor does all of his own bloodwork. The office is in a great building, but is rundown and not at all updated. This was my first appt. For me the doctor and medical office need to be great and as such I do not know if I would recommend a colleague to come here.
I am very pleased about having found this doctor. I am generally wary of doctor visits, but Dr. Crespin combines professionalism and seriousness with a very pleasant demeanor that makes the patient feel very much at ease and feel acknowledged.
First visits with a new doctor can be uncomfortable, but Dr. Crespin was very relaxed, kept the exam moving without rushing it, made sure I didn't leave with any unanswered questions, and overall put me very much at ease. Highly recommended.
I have a very positive impression and was impressed by the way the attention is dispensed.
Great Primary Care Physician for adult males
Very professional and pleasant
Very knowledgeable, didn't feel rushed, was very professional and prompt.
Friendly, courteous, and responsive to all kinds of questions.
Very good experience overall. Dr. Crespin was on-time and thorough. The only complaint would be that the office was a bit run-down.
very rewarding with no fuss or nonsense,
Dr. Crespin is very thorough and spends the time necessary to make me feel comfortable regarding my test results.
He is very thorough and gives you a print out of all the results from any tests. Open to questions, will suggest specialists if need. Thought he was a fine doctor and have already suggested him to a friend or two
Dr. Crespin is very professional, knowledgeable, and courteous. He's even available via email in case you have any questions. The appointment today was a general well visit and it went very smoothly. I highly recommend seeing Dr. Crespin.
He was very nice, and answered all of my questions.
Very knowledgeable, explained everything I needed to know, and listened to every concern I had. Also, Frank at the desk was courteous, and went above and beyond to make patients feel at home!
He seemed like an excellent and very knowledgeable doctor but the facilities were terrible. They should definitely move offices.
Non personal, Not clear information, not solve the problem
I generally never write bad reviews, but after being promised I would get my test results in 2-3 weeks, his assistant having told me he would personally call me about them, it's now been about two months and no word. I keep trying to call the office but the number is rerouting to a different phone and all I get is a generic voicemail.
Dr. Crespin and his staff are fantastic. He is knowledgeable, caring and attentive. His scheduling coordinator phoned me 30 minutes prior to my appointment to let me know the doctor was going to be a bit late because he was in surgery. He also followed up the next day on a prior authorization for a prescription. And I am no longer in horrible pain. Definitely worth the round trip cab ride from Carroll Gardens.
I think that Doctor Crespin will definitely find out what's wrong and come up with a solution!!
I don't think he cared much to help me out. I had to call the office three times to get my test results. They said the results would be ready in two weeks and that they would call me, but it took 5 weeks and I had to hound him. I had to press him for details as well. Also, I didn't feel like he believed that I was feeling ill. Maybe he was having a bad month...
Knowledgeable and helpful. Presented many helpful ideas and proposed treatments which we'll now try. Will update once results & followups occur.
Dr. Crespin's office staff was friendly, and the doctor himself seemed very professional and competent. I plan to return to Dr. Crespin for future visits.
Very positive. I am a big fan of his approach and professionalism.
I did not like the facilties, it does not give a good impression of cleanliness and the environment was too informal.
Friendly, seemed well versed in my ailment. Considering using him as my regular doctor.
Dr. Crespin was professional. My visit was short, so I cannot critique or recommend some one as of now. I will see in my future visits.
told me that he will give me some information but never do. I have been there 2 times but still not getting the information.
timely, professional and caring...
It was a good visit, i was in and out in less then half hr.
I was running a little late, and when I got to the doctor's office, I was greeted with smiles and warm welcomes. I didn't have to wait at all for my appointment. Dr. Crespin was very nice and accommodating. He offered great advice and was very professional.
It was a brief visit but we convered the reason why I was there to see him. Having an exam on the 15th to determine cause of my discomfort. Hopefully it will not be anything serious and Dr. Crespin can help me with that.
He was very thorough and great at answering all my questions though he didn't volunteer much information or advice. He did all the examination and blood work himself. The office could be better organized and they were unable to take my credit card. I felt like their IT and space were pretty crap but the important things were handled very well.
very professional, kind, great doctor.
I was amazed when dr. Crespin was ready to see me right at the scheduled time and then spent the entire half hour with me. I can't remember the last time I saw a doctor without waiting and didnt feel rushed. Definitely impressed
No waiting, attentive and thorough as usual
I went for my annual physical and had a very positive experience. I hardly waited, and Dr. Crespin was very professional. P.S. I'm not sure what happened with the reviewer who said Dr. Crespin didn't do blood tests on Saturdays - I went on a Saturday and got my blood drawn and my results back in a few days.
Dr. Crespin was very nice and listened to me. Had exam and did blood work all within 30 minutes. Office could use a tune up but the receptionist was very nice and accommodating.
Efficient, attentive, and thorough. Thanks!
Dr. Crespin was very attentive and addressed all my concerns thoroughly and thoughtfully. I appreciated the electronic tablet check-in system which I felt is better than traditional pen and paper.
Fast and very caring. He called me right away with my xrays results
Very nice guy. Was very good about giving detailed answers to many questions.
Terrific. Managed everything himself which is great.
I was able to get an appointment quickly. Frank, the receptionist is professional, patient, and highly qualified. I was taken in to see the doctor in a timely fashion. Dr. Crespin took time to listen to my history, had a great bedside manner, and I will be keeping him as my GP.
Very smart, likable guy.
Very knowledgeable about gastrointestinal problems. Easy to reach about follow up questions.
he was very calm and composed. I would recommend him anytime!
Dr Crespin was patient in listening to all my concerns and offered a concrete plan to the deal with the issues that I raised and following his advise really helped me.
He was professional and friendly to me. He answered all my questions and listened to me. No complaints here. Love the computerized forms. More docs need to start doing this. Makes everything much quicker.
Dr. Crespin is brilliant, sympathetic and sharp as a tack. If you're sick and you need a thoughtful diagnosis and an actual solution, you go to him.
emailed me test results without any explanations. tried to call him for explanation and he left an unclear voicemail instead. tried calling him back multiple times but never received a call back. terrible etiquette. i will not be coming back.
He is busy driving me out than paying attention
Dr. Crespin is very down to earth and no-nonsense. Even though his office is a little hole in the wall around a corner and behind things, the medical center where he did his procedure was a beautiful new facility with a fabulous staff. He provided a clear printout with pictures of my interior. Comprehensive and helpful. Thank you Dr. crespin.
Great thorough, intelligent doctor. VERY nice staff, computerized new-patient files makes it a breeze
consistently one of the best physicians I have been to. Fabulous diagnostician and great manner
Quick and thorough. Would visit again.
He didn't seem to show much care in my health concerns. He seemed very spaced out and not present with me. He also didn't explain himself very well. Confidence is everything and he needs to work on that. I didn't feel assured and I had to go talk to another doctor.
Very nice guy with a good sense of humor . Cool office location with courtyard outside . I will most defenteily be back. Thanks zocdoc!
Dr Crespin was amiable and to the point. I would return to him, and recommend him to friends.
Easy, fast, efficient care.
Dr. Crespin was very friendly and helpful, had gone to him for a second opinion on some stomach pain. Even followed up with him over email and he responded very quickly
Very thorough, discussed options, on time. definately recommend.
Nice. Polite. However, didn't really tell me anything I didn't already know about how I was feeling. Office receptionist was nice. I went to the midtown location and the building was extremely rundown and old. Not what I expected. Almost didn't stay due to the office appearance.
I only keep going back because I don't feel like starting my gastro process with someone else.
I have seen several doctors about my condition and Dr. Crespin has been by far my favorite. He was happy to explain each approach and did not disregard alternatives.
He is an extremely friendly and smart doctor, definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for a long-term doc!
Dr. Crespin is great - always very patient, open to my concerns and questions. Willing to keep working with me to find a diagnosis. His staff is great too - friendly and kind -- makes me feel comfortable.
Dr. Crespin is always friendly, knowledgable and thorough.
I find him to always be resouceful to my health issue's.He listen's to my complaint than we both address the issue. That is what I like.
I found Dr Crespin to be courteous and knowledgeable. He wasn't always as responsive as I'd like him to be (ie: I called him because I needed a refill on my medication and it took close to 2 weeks for him to do it).
Dr. Crespin is patient and kind. He made me feel very comfortable, and gave me advice others doctors hadn't about my condition. He is highly recommended.
Excellent as a general primary care doc; very convenient.
Very professional and clearly an expert.
Very courteous, professional and patient. I was a little nervous and know that I aked him the same question more than once but he took the time to consider and answer all of my questions and explained his thinking clearly and thoroughly.
Polite, courteous, and informative. Great doctor!
Dr. Crespin is professional and thorough.
Very professional and knew what he was talking about.
Very nice, very easy to talk to. Considering what has to happen when you see a Gastroenterologist, and this being my first, I left feeling reassured.
He was not very helpful with my situation. Just told me to pick up stuff at the pharmacy. He was nice, but I am still having issues
excellent diagnostician, very personable, prompt, offices in convenient locations, he take my insurance, what more could I ask for?
Dr. Crespin was prompt and friendly; and although he seemed rushed at the end,given my recent experiences consulting two other doctors in urgent-care situations for my issues, it was a relief to have a doctor take a reasonable amount of time to listen to me. He seemed thoughtful, non-alarmist, truly interested in being helpful, and willing to admit to the limitations of medical understanding (I don't mean his own per se, but that of the field overall), which I appreciated. I'm glad to have found a primary care doctor I'm comfortable consulting when needed.
Im a first time patient and had.to.cancel.1st appt, his office has been more than helpful and attentive to my needs
Very professional and pleasant
Dr. Crespin has been my physician for several years and I think he is tremendously knowledgable, a great diagnostician, and an all around credit to his profession
Extremely awkward bedside manner and did not provide much feedback or advice for treatment. Would not return.
Great appointment. Took time to speak with me, was not rushed at all and gave good information.
You can tell Dr. Crespin really cares about his patients. He is very attentive and listens to you. He is a rare find!
He took his time to talk with me and hear all of my history. I felt as though he listened carefully and wasn't just looking at me like a number. He was able to give me an appointment for my colonoscopy quickly due to his many hospital affiliations. My only complaint is that the office really needs to be redecorated and organized!
Very smart and knowledgeable. Pretty much knows the book on gastrointestinal medicine. Need to ask a few followup questions, but is a great encyclopedia.
As always, Dr. Crespin was patient,professional and willing to answer all my questions.
Has been my pcp and gastro doc for 10 years.
I felt that there was no personalization - just repeating a script that he'd probably repeated to all other patients. I've been switching PCP's for years now trying to find the "right" one. He was not responsive when I expressed my concern for finding a doctor. Anyone reading this review and can reco a PCP to me, I'd be very welcome!
He is of course the best Dr. for either your stomach pains or if he is willing to take you on as your PCP. Bedside manner is wonderful, he listens , and I never feel rushed. Also, in my experience I feel that he truly remembers each of his patience, beyond just looking at a chart right before you enter. His reception staff is friendly and professional as well. In this day, I feel lucky to have such a person as my PCP.
Very good. Office staff were very professional. Once I had registered was seen pretty quickly. Dr Crespin took time to review my details. Very friendly and professional.
Dr. Crespin is both my gastroenterologist and primary physician for over a year and he has been great with every aspect of the appointment.
Always knowledgable and very good about explaining medical issues in a language you can understand.
Dr. Crespin explained everything in an understandable and professional manner. He is friendly and concerned.
Today I was in and out in 15 minutes!!!! Best visit ever!
I like Dr. Crespin a lot. He is very caring. Does blood work himself. I highly recommend him.
Small office- no space in his examining room but was friendly and professional
He is very friendly and was able to see me and diagnois me right away.
I was so anxious before this appointment, but once I met with Dr. Crespin, I was immediately put at ease and thoroughly educated about the relationship of my symptoms and the diagnosis which he quickly arrived upon. I can't offer a more enthusiastic endorsement!
A fine doctor who promptly and effectively addressed all of my concerns
He is very good. Highly recommended.
This office is very dirty and cluttered which I found unprofessional
He was unable to diagnose my issue and he googled one type of test which I had read in past reviews and left me somewhat concerned.
he is a really caring and great doc. took his time and I didn't feel rushed or just a number. He has great bedside manner and would recommend him to all my friends and associates!
I have good feeling after this visit. The doctor knows really well what he is doing. I will come again if needed. I would recommend this doctor
Dr. Crespin was okay, not great or terrible but what made the experience much more intolerable is the office and staff. When you go there, please be careful because they have the worst record keeping I have ever experienced in my life, someone there by the name of Frank is the type of person who over promises and under delivers ALL THE TIME when it comes to anything related to paperwork/record keeping, either he is overwhelmed or they are just not organized enough over there. A doctor is only as good as his staff and his staff is terribly unorganized.
Incredible-I was deeply impressed. Perhaps one of the most personal and caring physicians I've ever met.
I have NO idea how/where these "Excellent" reviews came from for this doctor, but do NOT be fooled like I was. The office is outdated, there is no privacy (as you speak to the front desk, you are literally speaking to everyone in the office), there is no real set-up at this office. Even the examination room doubles as a file room. The bathroom doubles as storage. Just horrible. Horrible. Horrible. Horrible! This is my second visit to Dr. Crespin. The first was for a Physical. My wait time was so long (25 mins) that he then "No longer had time to give me a full physical" which, in all honesty was fine by because I had to get back to work. He simply drew some blood and told me to make an appointment for the following week. When the results came in - then he would give me a full examination. I did so, and came in today for my results (and the remainder of my physical). The physical was BOTCHED! I've never felt more rushed in my life. I could have done that examination MYSELF! He barely looked at me, let alone examine me. My test results were lacking (I requested my yearly HIV & STD test - these results were no where to be found) The urine sample that was take was never used - under urine results, everything read "Test Not Performed". I'm sorry but what exactly was my money taken for? Everything I request is just ignored? Then when I try to call the office and speak to him directly, it is like trying to call and speak to the President himself. I could go on - but I'll stop here. Needless to say, I will not be returning to this office and would recommend NO ONE to go there.
I have certainly been to better and CLEANER offices. I honestly thought I was walking into someone's storage room. Although the staff is somewhat personable, I cant get over the fact that the exam room looks like someones library. It also took over 3 weeks to get test results. Would not recommend.
The man was highly professional and attentive even though he was fighting a cold. Personable, very frank and knowledgable. I'll be coming to see him again.
He was reluctant to really explain the nature of my symptoms and how the (very expensive) meds would alleviate them. He needed to look up the dosage on his computer, which I guess is a go od thing but I've never incurred a physician who didn't just know. Also weird that the office is tucked within a gated apartment community and my credit card was processed on an iphone.
He is very friendly, very good memory, takes time with his patients and he knows his specialty.
I have finally found a Gastroenterologist who takes extra care to follow up treatments in progress via e-mail. He also speaks simple language to understand what is going on and how to tackle health issues. Highly recommended.!
He was personable, efficient and down to earth. He spoke "doctor-ese" but then translated to english/ people-speak. Highly recommend him.
The layout of the practice is a bit odd since it's located in one or multiple apartments. The furniture is dated and the walls could use a new coat of paint. Having said that Dr. Crespin was very professional and absolutely friendly. Highly recommended.
He was personable and professional. He answered my questions and in no way made me feel rushed or hurried.
Dr. Crespin always goes out of his way to provide prompt, complete care. He makes everything easier, I really appreciate his help.
The office is messy and it looks slightly unprofessional when you walk in (I was concerned when I first got there), but he is actually very professional, to the point and helpful.
Excellent Dr. - I highly recommend Dr. Crespin.
I had an appointment at 8:00AM and Dr. Crespin didn't walk into the door until 8:45AM. Due to his lateness, he seemed to rush me out and wasn't thorough in his examination at all. This was one of the worst experiences I've had at a doctor in New York.
Dr. Crespin was very professional, yet understanding throughout the duration of my visit. He spent quite a bit of time with me addressing my history and symptoms with sensitivity and genuine concern. His administrative staff was also very welcoming. I would highly recommend seeing this doctor if you are suffering from anything GI related!
Good Doctor, best part is his weekend hours, which is very convenient for those busy during the week. I would recommend him to a friend.
He was very knowledgeable and is working to find solutions. I would recommend.
Friendly and excellent service. Dr. Crespin and his staff made me feel very comfortable and made sure no details were missed.
Very knowledgeable and up to date on information. Took lots of time, listened to my opinions and took them into account with the treatment plan.
Dr. Crespin was great! He actually seemed interested in finding out more about my health as a new patient, and I didn't feel rushed at all.
very professional. would highly recommend
Very professional, was actually seen earlier than my appointment!
This was the best doctor experience I've had since I was a child.
Dr. Crespin is definitely a friendly caring doctor. I went to the office for an annual general check along with some questions for my GERD troubles. He explained everything very clear as he is a well known expertise in this area. I would consider to chose Dr. Crespin as my primary physician.
Dr. C is a great PC and his new Upper East Side Saturday office is a great location!
Online paperwork? Check! Appointment started on time? Check! Dr. Crespin listened without rushing me and clearly explained treatment options? Check!
The actual appointment and checkup were great but it has been nearly a year and I still haven't received my results via email as promised at the time of my appointment despite my repeated phone calls reminding them to send it to me. Each time I received and apology and was reassured it would be sent, but I still have not received it. I will note that Dr. Crespin did leave me a voicemail after the appointment telling me everything is normal/fine, but I would like to have the details of my physical. Overall everything was great with the exception of the lack of follow up despite my repeated phone calls.
Dr. Crespin is very personable easy to talk with. He offers clear and understandable explanations and answers to questions. He does not make the appointment feel rushed.
Very professional, affiliated with great hospitals.
My overall experience after seeing Dr.Jeffrey Crespin was great. It felt good to walk into a tidy office with helpful staff. His receptionist confirmed my appointment with a phone call which showed me the importance they put on showing the patient they care. He also directed me to the doctors website where I was able to fill out all the new patient information before I arrived to his office, making the process a breeze. The doctor was very meticulous with everything and seemed to ask all the right questions regarding my health. He was able to instill a high level of confidence by showing that he is a master of his craft with superb bedside manner. I felt comfortable from the moment I walked in, and felt an immediate level of trust. I would definitely see Dr.Crespin again and plan to.
Very friendly and nice.
Very professional, also quite accommodating and available.
Very meticulous with his work, took the time to provide me with necessary explanations, friendly, made me feel comfortable.
Dr. Crespin was too involved with small talk. He kept asking me what school i went to. When checking my breathing, he just lifted up my shirt without telling me what he was doing first. I felt almost violated. The exam room was small and cramped, i could see people walking on the street right outside the window. The trash was overflowing. I was VERY uncomfortable. Also, the office looks like some shady, sketchy, black market office in a renovated apartment building. The waiting room clearly used to be a living room, the kitchen was the nurse's office. The receptionist was wearing jeans and Jordans. If I was more sick than just my cough, I would NEVER go to this office again.
Dr. Crespin was very nice individual. He certainly listen to my complaints with out rushing me through the exam. I would certainly continue my care with him.
I went to Dr.Crespin as a GI specialist. Now my primary physician has left the country and I decided to stay with Dr. Crespin as my primary. I feel very comfortable talking to him and the wait time is close to none.
Dr. Crespin was extremely professional. He saw me right away, listened to me and all my problems and then went from there to providing me with the best patient care I have experienced in NYC. I will definitely be returning to him from now on!Excellent bedside manner and very knowledgeable!!!!!!
Dr Crespin is super helpful with awesome hours (even on Saturday!). He's very nice and really cares about his patients. I highly recommend him. Much easier to reach by email (via zocdoc site) than by phone.
I thought my visit with Dr.Crespin went very well, it could not have gone any better. He saw me right away and took very good care of me. He did not rush me and he really listened to me about the reason I was there. I would highly recommend him as a highly professional caring doctor.
Dr. Crespin is very knowledgeable in his craft and is very tech savvy. I would recommend him as a good gastro doc.
He was very distracted. Did not listen well. And the physical exam was less than adequate. I did not have a good experience with him.
Dr Crespin failed to tell me how much I would pay for a procedure where he needed a help from anesthesiologist and my bill was so outrageously big it took me almost a year to settle it. He said he will handle it and never resolved it despite my monthly calls which he then started to screen and ignore. I would not recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Crespin was very nice and attentive. I enjoyed my visit to the office. One thing though, they have a chandelier in the office and only one of the six available bulbs in the lamp were functional. It makes for a pretty dreary waiting area and it's something they should fix.
Per usual, Dr. Crespin is punctual, helpful and super kind. Great Primary Care Physician, more than just a GI doc.
Really nicwe and personable. His office, however, was really small, messy and cluttered...makes me nervous.
I thought he was good and attentive, unlike my other doctors.
Amazing bedside manner. He was very personable, kind, informative, and thorough. I felt very comfortable throughout my entire visit. He is by far the best doctor I've ever been to. He even sent me an e-mail in response to the notes i left for him on zocdoc when I booked the appointment. Definitely coming back to Dr. Crespin!
Every experience I have had with Dr. Crespin has been a positive one. He is absolutely thorough and listens sincerely to all of your concerns. I immediately felt comfortable with Dr. Crespin. He is so amiable and friendly. I am so happy that I have found him and I know that I am in good hands with him..
Very personable. Listens carefully. Thorough and detailed thoughts and opinions.
Prompt, efficient, answered all my questions, took great care of me.
Dr. Crespin made me feel comfortable throughout my visits.
I really appreciated Dr. Crespin's help. He was friendly and thorough.
I did a good amount of research before I went to Dr. Crespin. He is professional and very knowledgeable. He takes his time with every patient and leaves no issue unconsidered. Without a doubt he is one of the best doctors around. Would certainly recommend him.
Dr. Crespin has been my primary care physician for over six years. He is a very knowledgeable doctor and gastroenterologist.
Dr. Crespin is a thoughtful, very knowledgeable, and very caring doctor. If you were my sister, this is the doctor I would recommend you go see.
Dr. Crespin was amazing for the consultation. He spent a LOT of time with me, was thorough and answered all my questions. He also provided me with information regarding my fathers condition and suggested referrals.
I had a good experience and will definitely return to him in the future.
Dr. Crespin is very nice and relaxed. He took his time and let me talk about all my concerns. He also gets lab results back very quickly.
Nice and pleasant and seems genuinely concerned
I choose Dr. Crespin b/c of all the really good reviews here on ZocDoc but now I realize that ZocDoc prompts users for a review after the initial visit. Dr. Crespin was attentive during my first and only appointment. It was after, when he prescribed a medication which my pharmacy was having problems with when the issue occurred. For the next 4 days I called him -but never got through to him (I asked his answering service to please tell him to call my pharmacy to straighten out the issue). Day after day they assured me they were in contact with him, that he would call me back and/or he would resolve the problem. None of this happened, how difficult is it to make a phone call? After 4 days I found this type of behavior inexcusable and refuse to put my health in a professionals hands that cant be bothered.
Very informative and very helpful. Has scheduled follow up treatment. Dr.Crespin was very professional, very knowledgeable as well as very understanding. His explanations were clear and to the point. I am grateful to have been put in touch with him.
Very Happy with Doctor Crespin after my first visit. Multiple offices and no wait time in the uptown office. He even has Saturday hours.
I thought it went well. He was very friendly and made me feel comfortable speaking with him.
Dr. Crespin was thorough yet quick & efficient and listened to what I had to say.
Dr. Crespin has been a very patient, knowledgeable, and thorough GI doctor. He is very quick and responsive to my questions and has made it a mission to diagnose me.
He is very warm, friendly, and interested in your well-being. Also an interesting guy.
As always Dr. Crespin was terrific. He's patient, thorough and never rushes you out of his office. I particularly like the fact that he has evening & Saturday hours which so many other doctors do not.
Poor intake, not very observant, does not ask questions. General failure at securing patient information. Seems preoccupied.
Dr. Crespin is very professional and knowledgeable. He was attentive and his multiple office locations make it easy to schedule an appointment for your convenience.
Have been a patient for a few years and Doctor Crespin has always been accessible and responsive to my needs (and occasional fears). Highly recommend for time-pressed type-A's who want straight talk and thoughtful medical advice.
Dr. Crespin never disappoints. He's patient, thorough & has a terrific "bedside manner", something not found often these days. I also like the fact that he has extended hours that are convenient for working people & several locations.
Dr. Crespin did a very good job of making sure I got the proper diagnosis -- he made sure I got my CT scan promptly, made sure I saw a good surgeon as quickly as possible, and called a couple times to follow up with me after surgery. I appreciate his attentiveness.
Dr. Crespin is a warm,compassionate, patient doctor. He takes time to discuss concerns & I am grateful for his extended hours & availability whenever I need to see him.
I was very pleased that I was able to see Dr. Crespin on a Saturday afternoon. He is only Dr. I know of who's willing to work on the weekend.This on top of the fact that he's a wonderful doctor & is always patient & compationate.
Great visit. Very nice, informative doctor. Explained everything in detail and listened to my concerns. Definitely making him my primary care dr.
Dr. Crespin is very professional, prompt and helpful. Dr. Crespin has great bedside manners and takes time to address all of my questions. Best doctor I've been to since I've moved to NYC.
Although Dr. Crespin was professional, he rarely returned my calls. I would leave several messages, but he would not call back. I could not get answers to my questions nor get help when I needed it. I stopped going to him.
Dr. Crespin is serious about his ZocDoc appointments. Seemed to be quite busy when I arrived for my appointment, but he was right on time. Was helpful in answering any questions I had, friendly, and made my first check-up in years a lot less stressful than I thought it would be. Will definitely be back for future needs.
professional, helpful and informative
Would have liked him to ask more questions about my lifestyle, diet, etc.- a more thorough intake.
I'm relocating to Australia and wanted to get a full physical before I left. I went to see Dr. Crespin and had a great experience. I was seen immediately, he was extremely friendly, and explained the different tests. Highly recommend.
My visit with Dr. Crespin was excellent. He is just my kind of professional. When I got to his office, I was next. Then he saw me, treated my issue, satisfied my questions and I was on my way home.
Great bedside manner, approachable, seems knowledgeable.
I think he is a very knowledgeable doctor in his field. He does procedures and does not want you to be in any pain, he makes you feel safe and not afraid. I and anyone else is always afraid to be doing a procedure because you don't know what the outcome will be. He reassures you. I think he is also very smart and has insight on a lot of things.
Dr. Crespin is prompt and professional. I have been going to him for years for my stomach problems. He calls me back with my lab results and takes the time in the office to answer my questions.
Dr. Crespin has a great bedside manner and is very attentive. My procedure was painless, and his office followed up with me afterward. I highly recommend him!
I waited about 1 hour and 45 minutes for my appointment, and after explaining that I had another appointment that I needed to be at in 45 minutes, I was seen immediately. If they could fit me in immediately, why were they leaving me waiting in the waiting room?
He was great to speak with and answered all my questions. I have an upcoming procedure with him, and feel very comfortable relying on his experience.
Jeff Is GREAT GREAT GREAT!!!! A wonderful doctor who really cares!
Dr Crespin is the absolute best! Highly recommended.
I like my doctors to be smart, and he seemed very smart. Nice too.
Dr. Crespin acted in a professional manner and showed a willingness to discuss different preventive procedures.
My husband and I were both very impressed with Dr. Crespin and his office assistant during our last visit. Both of us were in and out without any issues and had no waiting time. We will be using Dr. Crespin in the future!
Felt confortable with this this doctor
Professional, courteous, knowledgeable
Very frank and easy to talk to. Offers constructive advice and makes the patient feel as ease.
The doctor saw my straight away and the office appeared very organized. He explained everything in a clear manner and was happy to answer any questions I have. An all round great doctor.
Dr. Crespin was very bright and down-to-earth. He spoke to me like he respected my intelligence and was willing to take the time to answer all of my questions.
I've used Dr. Crespin before and find him to be an excellent doctor. He spends the right amount of time with his patients and listens to his patients concerns.
I have been to see Dr. Crespin several times now, and would highly recommend him. He is patient, listens, and answers all my questions. I have never had to wait longer than 10 min to see him, but usually get in right away. He is a very intelligent man, and has been willing to go into detailed explanations for me. I am so glad to have found a doctor that with have an actual conversation with me.
Very nice experience. Easy to schedule, straightforward discussion, nice front-desk staff. Convenient and professional -- just like ZocDoc!
Excellent service and very professional. Very pleasant experience
I liked Dr. Crespin very much, he was very easy going and listened to what i had to say and he in turn was very knowledgeable about my ailment. He didn't try to push any prescriptions on me and gave me a manual option to try first to see if my syptoms cleared up before running expensive test/treatments on me. He also called to check up on me which very few doctors do and I appreciated it.
I was extremely pleased with the services provided by Dr. Crespin. He was thorough in discussing my medical history, in responding to questions I asked & in providing treatment. I was grateful to have found him on zocdo.
Dr. Crespin was completely professional, knowledgeable, and efficient. He answered all my questions in perfect detail and helped me understand my symptoms better. Highly recommended
I do not like going to the Doctor, but I really liked Dr. Crespin. He was professional while being friendly and unpretentious. Great bedside manner!
Efficient and thorough. Very pleasant to talk to.
a supportive and informative first meeting
This was my first visit with Dr. Crespin, I went during my lunch break for a 12:30 sick appointment and I was in and out with antibiotics by 1:00pm. Dr. Crespin has great beadside manners and I felt very comfortable, which says a lot for someone who never goes to doctors!
Gastroenterologists are generally brilliant by default. That sort of goes without saying. What sets Dr. Crespin apart--and why I trust him implicitly--is because he is considerate, attentive and never condescends.
My visit was quick, I didn't have to wait too long or fill out too many papers. I promptly received doctor's consultation and appropriate medication.
