Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Herbert and his assistant are incredibly personable, efficient, and comprehensive in their care. I'd highly recommend them to a friend.
Just perfect, as always ...
A great first appointment. I enjoyed meeting Dr. Herbert and felt that he was genuinely interested in making a connection with me as a new patient.
I saw Dr. Herbert today for my annual check-up. He was how he always is: friendly, funny, engaged. He asked smart questions and listened carefully to my answers. Finding him was like finding a car mechanic who only fixes what needs to be fixed and who treats you like an old friend. I feel lucky to have him as my doctor.
Dr. H is the man!
Went for an annual physical. Excellent bedside manner, took the time to get to know me an even did blood work himself.
I found Dr. Herbert on ZocDoc and was extremely impressed by the bedside manner and also professionalism from the doctor. He updated me quickly with results and also was understanding and attentive to any concerns I had. I am extremely lucky to have Dr. Herbert as my PCP now.
Dr. Herbert is THE best! So positive and caring. I’d see him again in a heart beat!
Always a pleasure to visit Dr. Herbert and staff.
Dr. Herbert was professional, friendly and helpful. I'm happy to call him my new general practitioner!
Dr. Herbert is the best doctor I've ever visited. He's friendly, knowledgeable, and compassionate and he's helped with with a wide variety of ailments. Going to the doctor can be scary but I actually look forward to visiting him since I know he'll be upbeat, honest, and helpful without judging or scaring me.
Would highly recommend.
Best primary care physician I've had in the city. Very experienced, and a wonderful bedside manner and attitude. I've never felt rushed like I have with so many other NYC doctors.
The office was especially busy on the day I saw Dr. Herbert, but he still took his time with me, listened to my concerns, and gave me a thorough examination. I highly recommend Dr. Herbert!
One of the best first time experiences with a doctor. He calmed me down, was very personable and professional, didn’t rush me and answered all questions. Really quite an amazing doctor.
Excellent doctor. Excellent care. Highly recommended.
It was very nice and personal. There weren't a ton of nurses or assistants that handle the various parts of the process, it was mainly Dr. Herbert and that was a nice change.
Receptionist was nice and Dr Herbert was very attentive. I highly recommend him.
I would definitely recommend Dr. Herbert and will return in the future without hesitation.
Extremely helpful and easy to talk to, couldn't ask for a better experience.
This was my second time meeting with Dr. Herbert. He's very laid back, easy to talk to, old-school in the best possible way. I always come away feeling well taken care of.
Amazing doctor. Such a good listener and so knowledgeable.
Efficient, got to the point, some humor.
Dr. Herbert and Ronnie were very friendly and helpful.
Dr Herbert is kind and knowledgeable! Highly recommend
Dr Herbert is very knowledgeable and helpful. Highly recommended!
Dr. Herbert is efficient, thoughtful and organized. He always treats me with respect and listens to what I have to say. He answers questions readily, both in person and via email. I have confidence in his knowledge and experience.
Dr Herbert and Ronnie are the best!
Dr. Herbert is a great guy. Very nice, very personable. I was there for the first time for a physical. He really took his time to talk and get to know me. His receptionist is very sweet too. So glad I found Dr. Herbert and will definitely be my PCP moving forward.
Doctor is really nice and friendly. he carefully listened to everything i said and then provided me suggestions. i would definitely recommend him.
Dr Lawrence is amazing, very attentive, lovely personality and caring. However the smell of smoke in the clinic is unacceptable. Unfortunately I don't think I can go back there because of this. It's festered into the walls and carpet to a degree unimaginable.
Excellent physician and one truly great guy!
Very helpful- dr herbert listens to you and helps you formulate a plan for treatment. I am always comfortable talking with him.
Very friendly and puts you at ease.
Wonderful attitude. Attentive to all my questions & concerns. Provided exceptional care. Would highly recommend him!!!
I was greeted warmly by Dr. Herbert, whose bedside manner is impeccable. He answered all of my questions and seemed genuinely interested in my life. Thank you for making my first visit to a GP in years easy and comfortable!
Haven't been to the doctor in a few years, so I had several things I wanted to discuss. Dr Herbert was very friendly, patient, and knowledgeable. He went above and beyond to address any questions or concerns I had. Highly recommended.
This was my second visit with Dr Herbert. He's a very nice man, professional and i am happy to have him as my doctor. His receptionist is lovely and thoughtful. I cant think of anything negative to say about my experiences with them and will def return.
Would be happy if he were able to take emblem health again We are long time patients and now forced to change when we don't want to
Dr. Herbert was extremely kind and seemed very knowledgeable. Staff was very friendly as well. I was just going in for an annual checkup, but he took his time talking with me and trying to get know me. He also knew my insurance well and made sure I wasn't going to be charged for anything I was expecting. He even drew my blood himself, which felt like going an extra mile, as I'm so used to being ushered down a hall and waiting for an assistant to do that. I also really appreciated that, because he was linked up with Zocdoc, I was able to fill out all my information ahead of time, and didn't have to sit filling out tons of new patient paperwork when I arrived. Really liked Dr. Herbert and will definitely go back.
Dr. Herbert was excellent, thorough and very friendly. He is a very thorough and comprehensive clinician, and very nice on top of it all. I would highly recommend him to everyone!
Very nice and friendly guy! He was talkative through the entire checkup and made me feel comfortable being there. I will definitely go back to him in the future!
I can't express in words how incredibly thankful I am for Dr. Herbert. I was struggling with severe throat/tonsil pain for 3 weeks and finally woke up and decided the pain was so bad I needed to make an appointment. It was a straight 10/10 on the pain scale, had never felt anything so awful. Got in straight at 10AM and met with the doctor. He was so kind, compassionate, helpful, and calmed me down immensely. He took a good look at my throat and was able to diagnose what was wrong. He sent me to the ER to meet with an ENT specialist within my network (oscar), and I was better within hours after their care. He followed up the next day with a phone call to see how I was doing. I have struggled to find a good doctor in NY and I can assure you Dr. Herbert is 1,000% my new Primary Care guy. So thankful for him and his help.
Dr. Herbert is my favorite primary care doctor in the city. He's friendly, attentive, and no-nonsense when it comes to treatment.
I am a long time patient of Dr. Herbert. He is always professional, extremely personable and knowledgeable. He deals with the problem at hand and is non-alarmist in approach. I actually look forward to going to the doctor when the appointment is with Dr. Herbert. Great staff, too!
Dr. Herbert was awesome. I, barely had to wait to see him. His bedside manner was excellent. He explained everything about the visit and what to expect regarding follow ups in very clear language.
Very good on all levels. I would highly recommend him.
I had my first appointment with Dr. Herbert today and he is great. He is very easy to talk to and I trust that my health is his primary concern. I will definitely stick with Dr. Herbert.
Doctor Herbert was great. Attentive, thorough and friendly.
Doc Herbert was friendly, informed and super helpful. Glad to have him as my primary physician.
absolutely wonderful experience, as always. :)
Dr. H is the best doctor experience I've had to date. What a friendly and professional guy!
I am a current patient of Dr. Herbert. Love his easy-going style, his positive attitude and great communication skills! He is very tech-savvy and responds quickly to any and all emails! Great doc!
Dr. Herbert is quick, professional, and nice. He knows what he's doing, and got me in and out of the office very quickly. He's also just fun to be around- he's amusing and fun to chat with. Definitely a great experience, and looking forward to using him in the future.
Fantastic. Front desk receptionist was friendly and after my visit I definitely feel like a cared-for patient. The doc knew the ins-and-outs of my insurance and Rx which was a huge plus - and was friendly, good-humored, and professional. I felt very taken care of. Office was a little tired looking but easily accessible via public transportation (good location) Would reccomend to anyone!
Highly professional, time-efficient, and personable. I didn't have to wait for very long, either.
I had a really positive experience! Easily one of the best doctor visits I've had in my life. Dr. Herbert is so personable, really takes the time to get to know you. Old school in the best possible way.
very friendly! great doctor
Dr. Herbert was fantastic - friendly, smart, energetic, thorough, and helpful. He was conversational, asked questions and discussed my situation with interest. The office was running late but they were friendly and apologetic about it. Very happy with my visit!
I loved the doctor and his office.
Very friendly, direct and straight forward. Open to questions. Knowledgeable enough for my annual physical so it was not a challenging situation, but seemed experienced enough to deal with escalation issues as well.
Dr.Hrebert is great and friendly doctor and knows his stuff.
Quite simply, very good on all levels.
Always a little to no wait and a joy to talk to Dr. Herbert -- a quirky and jolly man.
I waited about 30 mins to be seen while Dr. Herbert and his receptionist struggled to catch up on work after the holiday. The appointment was ok. Dr. Herbert was very friendly, if a little inappropriate with his humor. He did all the required work for the checkup during the appointment. Upon learning my profession he made it a point to show me his acting reel I was told that my blood work results would be ready in a couple days but after a week I had not heard anything. I emailed (as per his request) but did not receive a response. I called the office and the receptionist told me all was well and that I would be getting the results via email shortly. I did not. After another email and call I received the test results 3 weeks later. Separately, I had been prescribed medication by Dr. Herbert. When I reached out about potential side effects and some advice about how to proceed, it took several emails and another 3 weeks to get a response. Clearly this behavior is not acceptable.
Dr. Herbert was very friendly and professional. He asked good questions and listened very carefully.
Dr Herbert was professional, friendly and very easy to talk to. I get very nervous at the doctor's office, but I didn't this time. This guy is my new guy 110%.
Fantastic, best doctor i've visited in 6 years in New York. Friendly and funny with a clear understanding of how to treat me. Knowledgeable and thoughtful and kind. I will definitely return and recommend.
Dr. Herbert's the best!
Great guy and really easy to talk with. Very helpful and I will go back as needed.
Great doctor and very helpful when in need of help.
Old offices but great doctor!
Nicest doctor I've ever met
Very helpful, well mannered and attentive. My concerns were all answered and met with proper help and diagnosis. I have always returned for my general physical.
Great freindly atmosphere. Quick visit less than 10 minutes in waiting room. Knowledgeable doctor. Highly recommended
Very friendly with good bedside manner.
Great knowledgeable doctor. Reminds me of how doctors used to be , good bedside manner, thorough, and caring.
Wonderful! Extremely Recommended!
in the tradition of muhammad ali, dr.herbert is the greatest
Great first experience, will definitely be back, hopefully on my own time
Per usual, Dr. Herbert and staff were pleasant and efficient. Always a great experience when visiting this doctor's office! Highly recommend.
Great doctor. Would highly recommmend. Have found my general doc in NYC.
Very helpful, it was tough finding a primary care physician (as I am knew to the city) but once I saw Dr. Herbert I decided that he is the right doctor to go to, I would highly recommend him!
As always, Dr. Herbert is attentive, nice, understanding, and explains things easily. If you need a GP (which everyone should), then he is definitely the way to go!
Wonderful appointment, great staff, excellent bedside manner, friendly and easy appointments. A thoughtful, efficient experience! Will be returning without a doubt!
Dr. Herbert was very personable, quick, and thoughtful. Highly recommend.
Dr. Herbert is fantastic! No matter how strange the symptoms, he always knows how to fix them.
Really enjoyed my appointment with this doctor. He was warm and very flexible. Plus I trusted his judgment.
Best doctors visit ever. He is extremely pleasant. I only had a checkup and it was my first time but he made me feel very comfortable and was even joking around with me by the end. He was excellent!
Straight forward, manners and interaction were friendly. Dr. Herbert makes patients feel comfortable. Social etiquette aside, he was very concise and transparent in communication about what your visit entails. Everything from what he's doing and why, also whatever questions you have he'll answer honestly. Insurance coverage, so you know what your accountable for and whatnot. All around one of the best comprehensive doctors I've had in general. Also I'm a first time patient and will continue to return.
Dr. Herbert is awesome! He is extremely thorough and is happy to answer any questions you might have.
Dr Herbert is a rad! I travel at least 35 min just to get to his office. That says a lot. Best doc that Ive dealt with since moving to NYC
Dr Herbert was very friendly and helpful. He addressed all my concerns and questions with professionalism and intelligence. Very knowledgeable.
One of the most pleasant doctor's visits I have had in NYC. Despite the fact that it was a busy day, everyone was lovely from reception on up to the doctor, himself. He seemed to take a general concern in my questions and concerns and reassured me that he would would do everything he could to work with me and my insurance which was somewhat limitedl
Great doc - will definitely go back!
Very thorough and kind doctor! Would most definitely recommend to anyone I know. No wait time at the office!
Dr Herbert was quick, friendly and a great communicator. He was able to connect with me via email post appointment, which made any follow up super easy. Huge fan.
Dr. Herbert was great! He took his time and asked a lot of questions to get to know me. This deep care for each patient did mean he was running late, but I'm so happy he took time to cover all of my concerns.
Great doctor! Very thorough!
This was just a followup visit with Dr. Herbert, but I'm very pleased with the doctor and his practice and look forward to having him as my primary care physician.
very un welcomig
Clearly cares about his patients a great deal. Friendly, funny and a straight shooter. I recommended Dr. Herbert to my boyfriend, and we both decided to keep him as our doctor!
Dr. Herbert was wonderful! The wait time was almost none, and he was quick yet thorough. He genuinely listened to my issues, was very friendly and did a great job of distracting me with stories as I get nervous when having my blood drawn. I will definitely keep him as my doctor!
Efficient, clear, really friendly guy.
Dr. Herbert was very personable. I often bring a lot of questions to my doctor visits, and Dr. Herbert gladly and knowledgeably answered all that I came prepared with. I would definitely recommend Dr. Herbert to other patients.
This is my third appointment with Doctor Herbert and I can say that He has phenomenal bedside manners. What I like about him is that he really seems to care about his patients, and he's always ready to answer any of my questions with comprehensive answers. I will definitely keep going, and will recommend him to everyone I know looking for a great physician.
Great doctor, highly recommended!
Dr. Herbert was extremely friendly and made me feel very comfortable. I found a new doctor!
Dr. Herbert was fantastic! As soon as you walk into the office, its a very friendly and professional atmosphere. My appointment was at 3 PM and I was in around 3:20PM. Dr. Herbert himself is professional, friendly and very easy to communicate with. This is probably one of the only medical clinics I would recommend in the city as I have been to a few already. Dr. Herbert even gave me a business card for a gynecologist that he highly recommends should I ever feel the need to see a female doctor about any health issues.
He was no more comprehensive than he needed to be and I could tell he has a genuine interest in whole body health. All I have to say is I hope leaving this review doesn't make him too popular so I can go back :)
Dr. Herbert has a terrific bedside manner, and is a thorough physician. Highly recommended.
Dr. Herbert was seriously the sh*t. Professional, efficient, personable, good sense of humor - really have nothing to complain about. I trust him after only one visit and will definitely go back to him if I need anything else. 10/10
Very personable and friendly. An overall good experience.
Dr. Herbert was kind, funny and down to earth. He's very honest and personable. Great first visit!
Dr. Herbert's staff was friendly and helpful. Dr. Herbert made the appointment comfortable and was easy to talk to. I highly recommend him to others!
Dr Herbert and his staff are all very friendly and helpful.
Friendly, professional and thorough. Recommend!
Dr. Herbert was great, especially compared to some previous doctors I have seen. He took time to listen to me completely and gave some explanation and sound advice
I hate usually hate going to the doctor, and don't get me wrong — it's still not my favorite, but Dr. Herbert was awesome — he's super friendly, relatable and laid back. And best of all, not rushed at all.
First visit and was very pleased. Dr. Herbert is meticulous, thorough, and has a great personality. He was not rushed at all, took his time doing a complete history and exam. Highly recommend.
Intelligent, good bed side manner
Dr Herbert is wonderful! Thorough, polite and kind! His receptionist is lovely as well.
Dr. Herbert was very friendly, understanding, and thorough. He made me feel very comfortable and I trusted his judgement right away.
Dr. Herbert was incredibly easy to talk to about all my concerns and he knew what to say to make me feel comfortable and relaxed. It had been several years since I had seen a PCP, and I cannot be happier with finding Dr. Herbert.
HE WAS WONDERFUL! Great guy!
Wonderful office. Both the Front Desk and the Doctor were very kind. It was fast, efficient, and personable. Highly recommend this office.
This is a great doctor and listens to every concern you have. He is very knowledgeable about all aspects of medicine!
Amazing doctor ! Puts a lot of care into his patients and doesn't rush through the check up! Makes sure you are comfortable and cared for. High recommend !
Honestly a great doctor. He's very diligent and helps when you are explaining a self diagnosis. He's very cautious and anal but makes you feel very comfortable.
He is probably one of the few doctors I have ever gone to that actually listens to you and seems excited about diagnosing you and have you feel better. I'm very grateful to have met Dr Herbert and will definitely go back to him.
Very warm and friendly doctor. Took the time to get to know me as a person and made sure he was accessible after the appointment. Highly recommend!
Great experience, very quick, very nice people.
He's great. The receptionist is great. I'll go there all the time now.
Best primary care physician I've seen in NY.
I went to another doctor, gave him a specific preop assessment form to fill up that a hospital was for my surgery. Anyway, this doctor still filled up and faxed in his own thing.I was about to miss my surgery until I went to Dr. Herbert. The forms were due the day I went to him. He himself faxed the forms I needed sent and personally showed me the receipt that it went through. He was very laid back and personable. I'll make sure to be back for my annual!
Very good service, had to wait for about 20min but overall very pleased
As a new patient coming in for a regular check-up, Dr. Herbert was timely and professional. He was very informative and made it easy to have a conversation. Would definitely recommend.
He make me feel welcome and comfortable
Super short wait time and incredibly nice doctor and staff.
Dr. Herbert is great! He's friendly and concise.
Dr Herbert is one of the best doctors I've ever seen. Very thorough and kind and makes you feel completely at ease. Highly recommend.
January 4th was my last appointment. Reasons: Misconduct from Lawrence G. Herbert and the Nurse. I reported the misconduct to the Board via mail. From my experience - Businesses in New York continue to do as they wish.
Dr. Herbert was swamped with patients today, so I had to wait almost an hour to be seen. However, his professionalism and bedside manner, not to mention the convenient location from my apartment, more than made up for it.
Dr Herbert has an excellent bedside manner and a friendly demeanor that puts you right at ease. He seems happy to go a bit further to make sure his patients get the best treatment. Not only that, but I was in to have blood taken and barely noticed it was being done!
Efficient, but not rushed; relaxed, but detailed. Perfect.
Second time there. Great experience. Great Doctor. Great staff. Great everything!
I love Dr. Herbert and miss him DEARLY. Moved out of state and worry I won't find anyone comparable. So funny, high tolerance for neurotic questions, very knowledgable about asthma, all around great. Staff is very kind and helpful too.
A brilliant doctor who gets you. Wonderful experience. Highly recommended!
The office is falling apart, doctor went out to smoke before my office visit.
Always friendly, easy to talk to about any issues freely.
Dr. Herbert was AMAZING- made me feel very comfortable and was very informative. If you are looking for a great primary care Dr, he's your man!
Dr. Herbert was great. I waited less than 5 minutes to be seen, they actually used the forms I filled out ahead of time online (other doctors have made me fill out forms again, even after filling them out online) and he addressed all the issues I had. Another plus is that his office emails results instead of making me come back in to get them. He was also familiar with my insurance policy so he knew how to bill correctly so that I wouldn't mistakenly be charged. Overall, very competent and would recommend.
I think he's a very personable Doctor, and was very informative. He seemed to be very knowledgeable but since this was just my first visit I'm still finding out how he works. All in all, visit #1 was better than my last few doctors visits.
Great experience, thorough Doctor, highly recommend!
Absolutely wonderful. He is kind, caring and very knowledgable.
I would recommend anyone to this office. He's an old fashion doctor. Does everything himself. love him.
Lawrence Herbert, MD is a wonderful doctor with excellent bedside manner. I recommend him to everyone looking for a new primary care physician.
he is the greatest
Excellent doctor! He was really professional, attentive and, most importantly, He didn't rush. I felt really relaxed during the whole visit. I recommended him to my wife and friends. Great experience!!
Dr. Herbert was amazing! I truly felt as though he listened to my concerns and had very good advice to give on all issues. He was objective, knowledgable and one of the best doctors I've seen in a long time. I can say with certainty he is the doctor I plan on seeing primarily going forward :)
Dr. Herbert was so great, felt very comfortable around him. Very professional and attentive. Would recommend him to many others.
Excellent, thorough, attentive. No concerns left unattended.
Excellent visit all-around. Dr. Herbert s attentive and willing to listen to everything I had to say about my medical history. He seemed willing and ready to entertain any of the questions I posed to him and made me feel assured that he would look into all the possible scenarios regarding my condition. A truly friendly and comforting demeanor, I'm glad I decided to go see him!
Very professional. Did not rush. Would come again!
I have always had bad experiences with doctors plus I'm a hypochondriac so going to the doctors isn't something I enjoy. I cannot stand giving blood plus I'm anemic so I pretty much am about to pass out after the second tube of blood is being filled. Needless to say Dr. Herbert makes me feel super comfortable, he is non-judgmental and knows what he is doing. He understood my scare of doctors and his "chill" demeanor made me chill the heck out! Also he took my blood while I was laying down and its just so much better that way. Every doctor should be like him honestly. Will be back and back again.
I am an NYU student living in the City who needed a personal physician I could trust. Dr. Herbert was helpful and made me feel comfortable. Great sense of humor too.
Very nice, personable and made me feel relaxed. Would visit again!
Dr Herbert was friendly and easy to talk to. Highly recommended!
Far and away, the best Primary Care Physician I have ever been to. Such a wonderful bedside manner that makes you feel like an old friend. His courteousness is only matched by his sheer professionalism. Highly recommended!
Amazing physician - I come from a family of doctors and have been around them since childhood. Dr. Herbert is certainly one of the most pleasant physicians I've come across.
Dr. Herbert was great, very attentive, friendly and listens to any of concerns while relating to you and making you feel comfortable.
Excellent service as always.
This was a great visit (aside from long wait time) - Dr. Herbert listened to my health issues and was super friendly and helpful, and also got right to the point, which I appreciate. Excited to come back.
He was terrific guy, felt really comfortable speaking with him.. Highly recommend.. A true professional..
Amazing doc. Really caring and "gets it". Goes above and beyond for his patients. Highly recommend.
Excellent overall treatment, fantastic visit, lived up to the hype. Highly recommended.
Dr. Herbert was one of the best doctors I've met with since I've been in NYC. I had been pretty stressed about some health issues and he did a great job at both clarifying what was going on as well as helping me feel confident that all was in good hands.
just a really kind and knowledgable doctor
Always really helpful and friendly. Very comfortable to ask him any questions I have.
The best there is.
He was great, really professional, and put me at ease. I have recommended him to a few of my friends.
Dr. Herbert was just as others have said. Down to earth and easy to get along with. He made me feel very comfortable. (Don't be put off by the office. It is not fancy as some new clinics are. This looks like the office your mom used to take you to as a kid)
Why can't all doctors be like this? Dr. Herbert is awesome. Very informative and personable. Extremely helpful with all of my medical needs but in a way that makes it seem like you're longtime pals too. I despise visits to the doctor but this was by far my best experience with one. Would definitely recommend!
Dr. Herbert is simply the best. He is kind and funny and always willing to answer any question and make himself available via email at any time. I appreciate his accessibility! Ronnie at the front desk is lovely and helpful too!
Dr. Herbert is fantastic! I have lived in NYC for a long time and am thrilled to have found just an amazing primary care doctor. He is responsive over email, which is an added bonus if you are ever traveling and need some health questions answered. He truly cares about his patients. I would recommend him to anyone!
Awesome. Friendly, upbeat, easy to talk to. Great office. I found a doctor I can stick with!
Wouldn't trade Dr.herbert for any other MD.
Top notch guy.
Dr. Herbert is a fantastic doctor. Very helpful and down to earth. Highly recommended.
Very helpful, very knowledgeable, and a really great guy
!st time there. Very comfortable...down to earth Doctor. Listens. Someone I liked right away. He is my new Doctor for sure.
What a great experience. Dr. Herbert spent a lot of time with me asking in depth questions. He did all the stuff a nurse would normally do which I liked because I felt like he cared about my experience. I definitely recommend Dr. Herbert.
Efficient and pleasant checkup.
Dr. Herbert was incredibly warm and friendly. I really felt like he listened and tried to make me comfortable by relating to what was going on with me. He eased my mind and made the appointment a surprisingly enjoyable experience.
Dr Herbert was professional, personable and very helpful! Will be back again!
As always excellent.
Very comfortable waiting space and the staff is wonderful!
Excellent doctor Great bedside manner's definitely recommend them
Dr. Herbert is very professional and a listener! I greatly appreciated him hearing me out on all my health questions and concerns. So many doctors don't do that these days so it was greatly appreciated. Dr. Herbert is truly genuine. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Herbert is the best and I will curse the day he retires. He is very easy to talk to, listens intently and most importantly knows his stuff. His office is very diligent about getting back to you regarding test results, etc. His assistant/receptionist is wonderful and very accommodating.
The best. Highly recommended
Such an amazing doctor. He was super personable and knew exactly what I had. Also just an all around nice guy thats super smart and listens to you. I am so happy to have found him and he's the type of doctor you have for a long time.
He is very personable, listens very well, and is not quick to judge your symptoms. I like that he is very clear, no bs, with his delivery.
Dr. H. was great! I grew up in a small town where the doctor usually knows you and your whole family thus giving you a feeling of comfort and attention. I had that same feeling with Dr. H. Didn't get the "herding cattle" feeling you get with many city doctors. He also talks you like you're a person, not an imbecile. Highly recommended!
My experience was great! Went for an annual check-up with some concerns regarding my sinus issues. I was prescribed a useful spray that helped a lot. The Doctor's follow up of test results were via email which was super convenient. Will be going to Dr. Herbert from now on!
My beloved Doctor Lawrence G. Herbert, is professional, very, knowledgeable, attentive and friendly.
Great doctor - would highly recommend. Dr. Herbert was personable, down-to-earth, seemed like he knew what he was talking about, and thoroughly answered all of my questions. I'll definitely return for my next primary care visit. Friendly receptionist too.
It was my first visit Dr. Herbert and I am totally satisfy - he is really very helpful and experienced! Highly recommend!!!
Really excellent manner, polite, helpful, clearly cared about my health and wellbeing. Glad to be a patient!
I truly think Dr. Herbert is the best doctor in all of NYC. He is so kind and thorough. He explained all my test results in a very detailed way but using layman terms to ensure I understood. Highest recommendations.
I can't recommend him enough. Easily the best doc I've ever had in New York -- and as anyone who lives in New York can attest, it is both important AND difficult to find a great doctor. He has gone above and beyond, too, corresponding with me via email and answering specific questions. Dr. Herbert has invested so much time in my care, and I can't express how appreciate I am. He's a great guy overall, and I'm glad I found him.
Dr. Herbert is everything you would want in a doctor - he is kind, personable, patient, and thorough in both his examinations and explanations of any health related information and lab results. I am so very happy to have Dr. Herbert as a primary physician.
Dr. Herbert was fantastic. Not only is he extremely personable and easy to talk to, he personally took care of my blood test and reached out within a couple days about my results. Just an all around nice, down-to-earth guy who clearly knows what he's doing. It's a shame his office is so rundown, because it doesn't at all reflect the level of care you get at this office. I would definitely recommend him, as long as you don't need a fancy office.
Kind, thorough and extremely helpful. Highly recommended.
Excellent! I am so happy with this guy.
Very approachable, knowledgeable, unrushed doctor. Shame the premises seem so run down - in need of a refurbishment.
Very personable doc. Put me at ease and took plenty of time to listen. Never felt rushed which is nice in NYC.
As always, an excellent Physician who is very perspicacious and responsive regarding the basis of patients' presenting medical issues and psychological presentations.
Dr. Herbert was great - incredibly personable and definitely puts you at ease. The only negative was that the wait was a bit long, not sure if that's the usual or if the office just happened to be particularly long that day.
I had to get a physical for an upcoming surgery. Dr. Herbert made me feel completely at ease. So glad to have found a great GP in the area!
Great doctor. He gives all patients the attention they deserve AND doesn't keep them waiting in the waiting room. He purposely doesn't overbook for precisely that reason. I couldn't have asked for a better overall experience, and I'm so glad to have found a good nyc doctor.
He is so awesome and chill! I'm glad I can finally say I have a doctor who isn't judgemental about my lifestyle and I feel comfortable talking to :)
Excellent appointment and all around check-up. Highly Recommend!
Had a great experience. The service from receptionist was on point. Dr. Herbert was very down to earth, efficient, and knowledgeable. I am looking forward to my future visits and would definitely recommend this Dr. to someone else.
Excellent doctor and assistant was excellent as well!!!!
This guy is a physician in the highest sense of that word. He cuts trough any nonsense and treats you like a peer. I've been to his office 4 times and each time I leave encouraged and comforted.
Dr. Herbert was very friendly, personable, and helpful. I needed some tests rushed for a travel visa, and he made sure that I would get all my results in time before my trip (sent me PDF copies over email!). Thank you!
Professional while also being very personable, Did not seem judgemental and was very easily approachable, all very important when selecting a new doctor.
I've been a longtime patient. Doc is simply the best combination of excellence in medical care and personable service provider.
My visit was excellent! I am very excited that I have found a new primary care doc. He made uncomfortable/embarassing things very easy to talk about and he listened well. Overall, an excellent experience. I cannot say enough good things about this doctor!
Knowledgable, friendly, yet very professional . Nice , large office .
Great ! Quick easy personable !
Dr. Herbert was very personable, efficient, and professional. He made me feel as though I was cared for and about.
Nicest and friendliest doctor I've met yet in NY. Never felt rushed and made conversation easy, allowed me to ask any questions I had without making me ever feel like I was annoying him or taking up his time.
Really friendly staff and the doctor was professional, helpful and also really friendly.
Great location. Wonderful staff and doctor. Felt welcomed and well taken care of the whole time.
Doctor Herbert is the best
Great visit, great staff, my favorite doctor!!!!
The visit went well, the previous reviews were right on target.
Warm human being, very thorough.
Easily one of the best doctors I have ever had. Not only is he incredibly knowledgeable, but he approaches you as a friend. One of the nicest individuals you'll ever meet. Whenever I had a question, no matter what time of the day or night, he always responded promptly. I can safely say as long as I'm in NYC, I will never use another primary care doctor. Dr. Lawrence is the best!
I arrived about 15min early and the doctor was working alone but my wait and new patient intake was seamless. Other reviewers gave Dr. Herbert very high reviews and I thought it was an exaggeration. He had to be the most patient doctor I have ever seen. He listened, answered questions, gave me next steps and made what can be a not-so-fun visit more than bearable. I am sure to use him as my regular doctor.
Very professional doctor. The office and atmosphere was inviting and comfortable, I was treated promptly as well. He didn't rush any thing, listened attentively to all my symptoms and history. I feel I can definitely return and depend on him for any future general medical needs.
Dr Herbert is a great guy who really cares. highly recomended
Everything was excellent, highly recommended!
Dr Herbert definitely lives up to these good reviews! He is professional, efficient and very friendly. By far the best experience I've had with an NYC doctor.
One of the best doctor i ever visit in my entire life.u could talk about any problem with Dr.herbert...A+
Dr. Herbert is the best. No nonsense, but very patient. I went in for a basic check-up and he spent about 35 minutes with me. Very compassionate guy who really cares for patients.
I didn't realize what I was missing in a doctor until visiting Dr. Lawrence Herbert's practice. Not only an excellent doctor, but also an extremely nice person. He took the time to listen to my symptoms and concerns, and may have even cured my severe fear of needles. Great doctor. Highly recommended.
I thought Dr. Herbert was very kind and thorough. I did not feel at all rushed - he took the time to discuss all of my concerns. I am horrible with giving blood - he drew it personally and was swift and put me at ease. Dr. H is up to date with modern technology practice and will be emailing me blood test results over the weekend and mentioned I could email him back with any questions any time.
The visit was great, they got me in immediately. Dr. Herbert was very kind and personable. The visit was comfortable and easy.
Very smart, capable - almost makes going to the doc fun!
Helpful and communicative at and after appointment.
Great doctor and great staff!
Dr. Herbert is one of the best primary care doctors I've visited. Very warm and friendly, awesome bedside manner, and very professional. He spends the time to get to know you as a person / patient, and best of all, he seems to truly enjoy his work (whereas other doctors seem to simply go through the motions). If I had to nitpick, his office and equipment could use an upgrade (though he has a nifty stethoscope). I've never been this impressed or pleased with a doctor visit before. Highly recommended!
Perfect, as usual
Great Doctor, knows his stuff and explains well. Very down to earth and made me feel better about being a little under the weather
Just perfect as usual.
Amazing, kind, and professional. Often lets me email him with concerns and let's me avoid the co-pay. By far the best GP I've ever had!
Dr. Herbert was awesome as I expected based on all the great reviews. ... I went to office worried and left with peace. Awesome Doctor and I will definitely visit again :)
Dr Herbert is great! Went with a sore throat and what I feared was strep. My appointment was at 4, he saw me by 4:15, and I had my prescription for antibiotics filled at the cvs across the street by 5. He's super personable and made me feel at ease that I'll be healthy in a few days.
Great doctor so nice !
Dr. Lawrence Herbert was very friendly and down to earth, yet thorough and informative. The visit was a very pleasant experience.
He is a great doctor for young men.
a very competent and approachable doctor with great knowledgea in many fields. make you feel comfortable with a no-nonense attitude, yet very thorough and genuinely interested in helping people.
He is the best doctor I have ever seen! Don't hesitate to ask him about any medical problems or issues you are facing. He is very understanding! He actually listens and tried to find solutions did my problems via email a few days before my appt so he could be coming up with a game plan! Where On earth is there another doctor who gives that much intent attention to his patients? He gives his knowledge and expertise selflessly and genuinely wants to help, even if there is no possible gain involved on his behalf! Truly amazing!
It was my first visit. I am very happy with it. Very professional , make you feel comfortable . Dr take time with you make you feel like a patient not just a number. I am happy with the Dr. Lawrence Herbert . Thanks. Vicky
I've never had a doctor just sit and talk to me about life! He was literally the nicest man alive. And I just feel like you could ask him absolutely anything and feel completely comfortable. Makes being sick just a little bit better!
Doctor Herbert is a thoughtful and thorough doctor. I have seen him several times and he has always made me feel that he was genuinely concerned for my well being. Unlike other doctors, Dr. Herbert always gives his undivided attention, taking the time to talk to me in depth about symptoms and other issues that might be contributing to my health problems. I can recommend him without hesitation.
This was my first visit to Dr. Herbert so he was very thorough learning about my medical history as well as having a nice personal chat. He was knowledgable and professional.
Really great doctor and knows what he is talking about. Great bedside manner and demeanor. Staff is also very nice.
It was perfect
Dr. Herbert was great and very friendly.
Friendly and efficient
Professional, curteous, efficient- great family physician who listenst and treats your problems.
I thought it was great.
Doctor Herbert was attentive and thorough. I have had some questions and problems with prescriptions since my visit and he has been very quick to answer my calls and assisted me with all my problems.
He was great - really professional and super nice.
Dr. Herbert is the quintessential physician in that he possesses the clinical skills coupled with an understanding of his patients personality dynamics resulting in the provision of an excellent level of quality of care.
knowledgeable, compassionate, wonderful person
Very kind and clear.
Dr. Herbert took his time and explained things clearly to me. He was friendly and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend him. He also has a very nice and efficient administrator/assistant.
Really was interested in you personally.
He is a great Doctor...He explain everything
Doctor is great - very thorough and a pleasure to deal with - but billing staff are completely incompetent. I visited once in 2012 and it took more than 8 letters, phone calls with office and insurance company for them to bill correctly. I went again in early 2013 and I am facing the exact same issue. It has been a year, and have changed jobs (and so do not even have the same insurance) and they still cannot work out how to bill correctly. in Summary doctor is great - but billing/reception staff are terrible. Unfortunately I will be unable to go back because of this. This is a real shame - doctor is a 5 star - but I have to give a much lower rating because the overall experience has been a nightmare.
Nice guy. Very personable. Treated my symptoms well, which is prettying all you can ask for when going to the doctor's office when you're sick. I have found my new primary care physician!
Great Doctor - Highly knowledgeable! Really took the time to assess my condition and explain to me what's going on.
Dr. Herbert represents the true essence of how a physician should practice; competence, attunement with patients, kindness and empathy.
Dr. Herbert was professional, informative, and took the time to make me feel at ease during the appointment. Definitely the sort of doctor who enjoys what he does!
Dr. Herbert was incredibly nice and helpful. Would definitely go back to him.
He was amazing and friendly. Will surely go back there.
Dr. Herbert is very easy going and he listens when you tell him what's wrong. He took care of it in no time at all. I highly recommend this doctor.
I thought Doctor Herbert was amazing. He was very knowledgeable and really took the time to listen the reason for the visit. He was thorough and made sure to take all the steps needed to make a proper, initial diagnosis. He's also a great conversationalist! I definitely would recommend him to anyone.
Great, knowledgable, nice doctor. I found my new PCP.
Dr Herbert is great. highly recommended!
Dr Herbert is very friendly and I will recommend him to my friends.
A very nice man, but office was generally unclean, and smelled very heavily of cigarette smoke, which makes it hard to feel good about the care you are getting. He will cut your rate if you are uninsured.
Wonderful personality. He is very professional and I will recommend my entourage to him.
Dr Herbert was incredible nice and attentive. I would return to him any time. He was very considerate of the fact I don't have health insurance while maintaining quality care!
Dr. H. is tops. I an new to this area and he made m feel as if he my GP for the 10 years. And knows his biz like nobody's business. Highly recommended!
Finally A Primary that I feel very is efficient. This Dr. does more than simply care.
Even though I waited a bit longer this time than last time, I would still highly recommend Dr. Herbert. He's just great!
Dr. Lawrence is fun and he makes you feel so comfortable. When you leave his office, you are half recovered. I will recommend him to all my friends. He is a very good doctor.
Dr. Herbert was professional and helpful to my needs. He answered my questions, explained, and prescribed what I needed. Thank you Dr. Herbert.
Dr. Herbert was an absolute doll. I would recommend him to any one in an instant.
Dr. Herbert is very professional with fantastic bedside manner. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a great gen. practitioner whose knowledge extends far beyond general medicine. And his reception staff are tops.
Dr. Herbert was so friendly and professional. He went above and beyond to accommodate me and check me thoroughly.
He's the best! :)
He was very kind and friendly. He made me feel comfortable.
Dr. Herbert was great -- a very friendly, personable doctor. I was taken aback by how much time he took to get to know me in addition to assessing my medical history and visit.
Excellent doctor and very helpful front desk. Almost no wait, listens and explains in detail what he's doing and what he's seeing with no frills.
I am new to the city and a was looking for a Dr and am very happy that I found Dr Herbert, he was very friendly and took the time to understand my health history and made some very helpful recomendations. He is definitely going to become my regular GP
A very nice guy. Booked it the same day and got in right when i was supposed to. A very pleasant experience over all. If you are in the east village i would highly reccomend him.
my visit was good the dr is a goodman good dr. i like he's fish tank in the waiting room
Needed a local doctor fast. Dr. Herbert very nice and personable. He answered all my questions and put me at ease. I just wish he took my insurance so that I could make him my GP.
Wonderful Doctor -- really listened to me and took time with me!
Dr. Herbert was great. Very friendly and took time to listen, despite a busy day. It's true I needed to wait 20 minutes, but he was apologetic, as was the admin up front, and his pleasant demeanor more than made up for the slight delay.
Dr Herbert was extremely helpful as i saw him for 2 appointments over the course if 3 days. Both times he took me in earlier than I was scheduled and he was friendly and informative about my symptoms. He even explained my symptoms to my mom over the phone! If you are looking for a general practitioner he is great.
Amazing doctor - highly recommended. He's super nice, great diagnostician, and a great listener.
super rad Dr!
My visit to Dr. Herbert could not have gone better! Everyone was so friendly, and I really felt like I was taken care of by a seasoned professional.
Dr Herbert is a wonderful doctor. He doesn't rush or hurry along to get to other patients and always has time to speak with you one-on-one to address your concerns. For the first 8 of the 10 years that I have lived in NYC I had many unsatisfactory appointments with doctors in my health insurance network. Often they were rude or dismissive and didn't have much time to explain things to me (and I am a healthy person). You won't be disappointed with Dr Herbert.
great doctor. very friendly. makes me feel at ease and is a hands on dr.
Dr. Herbert was wonderful! He is truly a God send! A doctor who wants to truly help! Thank God and Dr. Herbert and his staff!
Dr Herbert was great and very professional. He was thorough and took care of my issue with no fuss. I was a tourist visiting New York for a short time and was very relieved to find Dr Herbert on ZocDoc so clise to where i was staying. Would definitely recommend him.
My only complaint is I didn' expect a general practioner to charge a specialist copay. I probably should have called to inquire. Even paying a specialist copay, I was overall very pleased. Everything else was great.
great doctor, outgoing and friendly. will highly recommend
Great guy - Great overall experience.
Dr. Herbert is wonderful. He was friendly, very attentive and took his time to go over my medical history. He also got back to me the next day with my test results. He is obviously a great Physician and I am very pleased with his medical services. His office was clean and his staff was courteous as well.
Funniest, most calming, and overall best doctor experience I have ever had... Highly reccommend him. What a neat, nice, intelligent, and professional man!
He's a good friendly, good doc. The office wasn't very busy and he saw me almost immediately.
Dr. Herbert is great. He took meticulous notes on my medical history and recommended a new course of action.
I was so nervous about seeing a new doctor and Dr. H was so nice, professional, thorough and I left feeling much better. He even gave me some cold lemonade and Tylenol to ease my 102 fever! He pretty much knew all my symptoms as I rattled them all off almost in tears. I'm always so reluctant to go see a doc but he and the office staff made me feel very comfortable and prescribed the meds I needed. I'm def. going back to this office.
He was super Nice and sweet
Convenient Location and excellent bed-side manner. Devotes time to each patient and answers any questions patient might have. A truly excellent Doctor visit experience overall! The office doesn't take credit cards though... so make sure to bring a check book or cash before your visit! :-)
I was very happy with my visit !
Very personable. Assuaged any fears. Accessible via phone or email. Positive experience overall.
Very easy to talk to and was thorough. Would definitely see him again!
Very smart and friendly guy, his nurse is nice and he answered all of my questions. I'll definitely go to him for years to come.
The office staff here was very friendly and accommodating to fit me in for an appointment. Dr. Herbert was an extremely genuine and caring professional- he took the time to listen to all of my issues without rushing me! He then proceeded to explain the diagnosis as well as how long it would take to recover. He got me through the appointment with a positive outlook through his sense of humor. I have found my new Primary Care doc!
Dr lawrence is a wonderful doctor who treated me with the upmost respect and made my visit to his office pleasurable even if he did stick a needle in my arm. I have recommended him to my daughter so I am sure you will see her one day. I would also like to pass compliments to your receptionist as she was a lovely lady, a great front person for your practice. Already I am feeling much better and I would like to thank you again - maybe one day in New Zealand. Regards Nancy Teale
When I walked into the office I immediately smelled cigarette smoke. I thought it might have come from outside because the windows were open. However, when doctor Lawrence came to examine me I smelled the cigarette smoke on his fingers. Also, I asked Dr. Lawrence for a write up of my visit for legal purposes( I was injured by a personal trainer) this was NEVER done. I called every week asking for it. I called every week for 5 months and never got anything from the Doctor, the secretary told me that he was "very busy" and "tends to forget things" I do not agree with his smoking habits, I believe any medical professional is well aware of the dangers of smoking,and also his NON-participation in giving me my medical records is unacceptable.
Very nice, warm, and professional.
