Dr. Provert is a very pleasant person. He has great expertise paired with an excellent bedside manner. My blood test reflectedsomething abnormal that he addressed and explained to me. He was careful and respectful in his communication: his goal was to advise me. He sent me for a CT scan and reviewed the results with me. Dr. Provert speaks to the patient as a person with feelings and questions where some other doctors treat patients like objects with symptoms. I feel very well taken care of and confident that everything was thoroughly investigated and that all is well. I highly recommend Dr. Provert with no hesitancy or reservation whatsoever.

Consider the amount and type of patients visiting the ZocDoc offices and the broad range of people seeking help, educated and informed ( or not) about their medical issues, one would like to believe that a doctor would patiently and carefullyweigh his or her knowledge of the facts carefully. In addition to listening with care and attention about what is actually happening in their own bodies. I am afraid that neither happened during my visit and I have no intention of ever returning.

As always, Dr. Provet (who has been my Urologist for nearly 20 years) was caring, listened to my questions, and responded with very sound advice on an issue I currently had. He is the consummate professional, whose opinion I have completetrust in. It is obvious to his patients, that he is on the cutting edge of his profession.

Dr. Provet is very professional and to the point. He does not order unneeded test and is very conservative with medication. If you need it , he will explain the benefits and draw backs and provide you with his opinion based on your medical record and your symptoms.

Dr. Provet's office is very busy; He is rushes through the exam and doesn't show empathy for his patient. He doesn't explain what he is doing and doesn't give the patient enough information. I was there today and I amvery uncomfortable; for my next appointment I have to wait 8 days! This doesn't seem right.

According to Zocdoc reviews; you would think Dr. Prover was a decent physician. However, my experience echos a few other 1-star eaters in that he was extremely rude, condescending, and appeared annoyed at my questions. The visit was under 10minutes although my medical bill does not reflect that. I came to Dr. Provet for an issue I was extremely concerned about and it seemed as though he pushed me off to get an x-Ray and had no time for further interaction. Horrible bedside manner and professional demeanor. Would never recommend!

John is a superb physician. He is extremely knowledgeable and experienced, wastes no time, but doesn't skimp on patient care in the process. He attentive, suggestive and supportive and follows through until he is certain the patient has beenproperly and at the very least adequately treated. He listens to complaints and if the patient seems skittish, he makes sure he follows up. I choose all my doctors very carefully and since this is NYC, there's no reason to keep one you don't like or one in whom you don't have confidence. John has performed successful surgery on me in addition to providing ongoing treatment. He gives me confidence and I wouldn't trade him for another. I just hope he doesn't ever retire!

This is the second time seeing Dr. Provet and I find him to be very condensing. I wanted to really just be able to ask him questions that I have concerns with and he dismisses my questions as if they areof no concern to him. He gets angry and slams his fist on the table when I am talking to him as if I am annoying him. Honestly we go to several amazing doctors in the city all highly respected and never have I been treated this way by someone. If he feels he is above everyone perhaps he shouldn't see new patients.

John is an excellent physician and surgeon who I have known and used for years not only for myself, but I have recommended him to others as well. He is old fashioned as in he actually talks to his patients andto determine their conditions and their needs. He has performed surgery on me so I know how he "operates' in that environment and has asked all the right questions during our visits. He offers advice and counsel and has his office dutifully follow-up. He also exceeds to his patient's wishes. Today he suggested that I return in one year, but seeing that I wasn't happy with that he immediately said we'll continue 6 months as we've been doing. He is the physician you want.
