The check in process was not good. But I guess this is true at most clinics. The doctor was good though. Confusion around what would be charged and what wouldn’t.

My visit at the office was great. The staff is very friendly and nice. The front desk was great, even the lady who drew blood work on me was awesome. Dr. Erik was just great. He was attentive and definitely didn’tmake me feel rushed or like my questions didn’t matter. I think I found my new PCP

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

Dr was wonderful. Actually listened, great feedback, thorough and efficient . The ladies in the front and nurses were lovely. The wait was far too long but once I spoke with them they rushed me right through. Annual physical total time there nearly 2 hours.

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.

The entire office is clean, relaxing, and appealing. The staff is amazing, professional, and so helpful (with great humor)! I felt so good after seeing Dr. Jens Erik Harboe-Schmidt. He listened completely, encouraged me, and eased a lot ofworry. Medical professionals in NYC can be a hit or miss—trust me, I’ve been burned a few times. Dr. Erik is the real deal. Stop by, and see for yourself!

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.

Dr. Jens Erik Harboe-Schmidt is very attentive and thorough. I really enjoy my visits with him and even followed him from Brooklyn to Manhattan when he switched offices. He doesn’t rush to prescribe medication, rather, first he likes to get to the root of the issues.

I haven’t been to the GP ever in my adult life, I was a bit nervous but Mr. Schmidt made me feel so relaxed and really listened to my needs and fears. He really took my whole anxiety away. The officeis very busy with other doctors and patients and I truly feel he’s the best asset they have. A great doctor to trust

Nice doctor, excellent MA, beautiful office. Off-putting receptionists. Something was a bit off about their attitudes. Not very friendly and almost too bossy/demanding. Would love to see this doctor again but definitely not looking forward to dealing with the front desk staff again

Very thorough and attentive. Listened well, asked great questions, discussed a variety of approaches and their pros/cons. Despite being incredibly behind schedule, I never felt rushed or that my care was in any way compromised. Solid Doc!Staff was friendly and competent, although with so many doctors working in this practice, getting seen can take some time. Plan accordingly.

I was pleased with my visit with Dr. Jens Erik Harboe-Schmidt. I hadn't been to the doctor in many years. He was personable and concerned to find out what was going on with my recent illness. He also recommended other specialistsas needed. I left the office feeling positive and with a definite plan for the weeks ahead. When I arrived, I had to spend time on the phone straightening out some business with my insurance provider(also helpful), so the doctor didn't see me right away. To be fair, I'd give 5 stars on all my most important concerns during my visit at this medical group.
