Dr. Harboe-Schmidt was very pleasant and did a thorough exam after evaluating my history and symptoms. Even though I was waiting a while and the office seems to run behind frequently, he still took the proper time to make sure hefully addressed my concerns and made the proper recommendations. I definitely will rely on him as my new PCP in NYC.

Dr. Harboe-Schmidt was compassionate and knowledgeable. I have a fairly complex set of symptoms, and he took the time to go through them with me. He is the best PCP I have had to date. In addition, the office and thethe staff are amazing. In particular, Melissa and Wismelda at the front desk really made my day better. I did not have my insurance card on me and needed to change my PCP. Melissa dealt with the situation like a wizard, all the while making me smile. I overheard Wismelda's concern when another patient's vitals were not taken in a timely manner -- she made sure he was seen right away. The staff here really care, and are just great at what they do. Ms. Maria was my phlebotomist, and drew blood for a number of tests painlessly. She definitely made that part of the experience nicer! Everyone in the office smiles; it's a very pleasant atmosphere. All the staff I had interactions with were sincerely cordial and helpful, and I look forward to my appointments there. As a bonus, the coffee is good and the music is awesome!

I had a great experience with Dr. Erik. It had been a very long time since I’d been to a doctor and I was quite nervous but his calming demeanor and willingness to listen put me at ease. Answered all ofmy questions matter of factly and gave me concrete advice. The staff were friendly and helpful as well, and no issues with wait time.

This was one of the best experiences I’ve had in a nyc clinic. The staff at the front desk were extremely polite and helpful. Dr Erik genuinely listened to my symptoms and ordered tests right away. I’ve been to so manydoctors trying to find the cause for my symptoms but he is actually trying to figure it out. My nurse Cherry was lovely! I was able to make appointments for the tests I needed right away. The great part about this clinic is that they also do your blood work right there and have specialists and tests in house so you don’t get sent on a run around the city. This will be my only clinic from now on.

The doctor was great but this office is complete mayhem. Calls you 5 times before each appointment asking you to confirm (even after you confirm), it’s like a urgent care in poverty stricken neighborhood - the way their running things. Everytime you show up you spend about 3 hours - communication between the doctor who orders the tests and the nurses who set it up is a mess even though they have a system + they are literally 4 feet from each other. You have to schedule 5 appointments to do the tests. It’s a NIGHTMARE

Best doctor I've ever seen. Came for annual check-up. Gave immediate feedback and explanations for everything he was checking for. Made sure he addressed every concern before we wrapped up and was genuinely ready to talk about anything. Providedrecommendations that were clear. Only negative was that my appointment was set for 7:40am but the blood specialist doesn't arrive until 9am which so I waited for a bit after my appointment but given how good the doc is, it's really a de minimis issue.

The office staff were incredibly friendly as well as accommodating plus the Doctor was nice while very professional. This was my first time at a Doctor’s office where I was brought into an examination room and the Doctor was there forME. It was not your typical wait in a closed door room in silence type office and I really appreciated that.

I thought Dr. Harboe-Schmidt and his nursing staff were very professional. There was a slight wait, but also they were thorough and didn’t rush so this made sense for an end-of-day appointment. I’m looking forward to continuing with this practice for primary care.

I came to office after 4 days of bad food poisoning and waited over 30 min to be seen. The dr wanted to take a precautionary ultrasound and I went to confirm with the front desk that it would be coveredby my insurance. The first receptionist had no clue and it took the other one 20 minutes to finish up with another patient to answer me during which time the dr had left. I had to return the next day and pay another co-pay because of this. Poor service overall while the dr was professional and listened to what I had to say

The office was very disorganized. Long wait times and lots of harsh words exchanged among employees. The office didn’t use the medical questionnaire already filled from zoc doc. The forms for personal information also had very little space.I couldn’t help but think what would happen if people had longer names. The only perk of this place is that they are open late.

Terrific doctor! Amazing listener. I really felt like he genuinely wanted to help me rather than merely to appear smart or authoritative. Would definitely visit him again. However, there was a hiccup at the front desk with my insurance thatmade my appointment start about forty minutes late. It's possible that this was an understandable mistake, but I hadn't ever had this problem in any other office (although I used the same insurance), and from other reviews it sounds like problems with the receptionists are fairly common. Based on my experience, I highly recommend Dr. Harboe-Schmidt, but can't confidently recommend the office itself.
