Verified Patient Reviews
I went a few minutes early and they took me right away. The nurses were very nice, and when I was given antibiotics to drop off, they were able to give me one before I even left to get me started.
Great no complaints and smooth to deal with.
Very unsatisfied. My previous primary care provider moved and I booked this appointment with the hopes of finding a new doctor in the area. Found out it was an Urgent Care provider upon arrival. I specifically informed them the visit was to refill my prescription, which I included I informed when making my appointment. They confirmed my appointment but refused to refill my prescription when I arrived. Huge waste of time, wish I was told the week before when I made the appointment and I would not have wasted the time and money.
He was super knowledgeable and very helpful!
He was great and clear. Dr Pastula was funny but informative and very efficient! I highly recommend.
I'm only saying I would "maybe" recommend this doctor because of the facility. Despite being listed as a Primary Care doctor I was charged an urgent care co-pay, which is double.
I broke my foot on New Year's Eve and went in on January 2nd...made the appt on Zoc Doc and went to the office, they took me back to the room within 5 minutes, the doctor was in right away, they took x-rays, put a boot on and had me out the door in less than an hour... truly fabulous. Very competent staff and making an appt with an orthopedic surgeon for me. Great experience, highly recommended.
I made this appointment last minute. I was seen within minutes of arrival. The doctor was great and thorough and took time to answer all my questions. Highly recommended!!!
Didn't see this doctor, but the doctor I saw was friendly and straightforward.
incredibly efficient! would go back to this multi-doc clinic in a heartbeat!
This location is for urgent/emergency care. They are listed on ZocDoc as primary care physicians which is not correct. I came here for an annual physical and was told they could perform one if I would like, but that I should actually see a PCP and provided a good list of recommended doctors. Seems like a very good alternative to a hospital if your insurance covers you!
37 West 23rd Street is an Urgent Care Facility and this doctor shouldn't be listed as a Primary Care Doctor. Only go for this doctor / facility for an urgent care treatment and make sure your insurance plan covers it (call your insurance company, the receptionists DO NOT know this), otherwise you will end up paying the whole medical bill yourself...like me.
Dr Pastula was straightforward, but approachable and attentive. Office staff was great too! I recommend
Wonderful doctor - everyone at his practice is great! Don't even try anywhere else.
it was very professional and he was nice, polite and helpful
This is a great place for urgent care, but not good if you're looking for a regular doctor. Place was very clean, and I was seen right away.
I was blown away by how friendly, efficient and attentive the staff at CareMD was. I also needed a catscan and was scheduled immediately- as well as followed up on by my doctor. Reassuring and great experience-
Actually met with Dr. Liu, who was awesome, very professional, and expecting his 2nd child any day now. A very clean and modern office with a great staff.
Urgent care, so expensive but if you have the right insurance, who cares. It's hard to book and doc that's not a quack in NYC if you don't have one already. Get right in, long hours. Groovy.
This is an urgent care facility, so in all likelihood you will not be seeing Dr. Pastula, but one of his many doctors. It's refreshing that they can do blood work and urine tests in-house rather than referring you to a Quest Lab, etc. Open seven days a week.
Very friendly and easy to talk to.
Very thorough and nice.
