Dr. Re is an excellent doctor. He explains what is wrong and the different treatment options. He is not in a rush to do surgery, although I have had surgery done by him and he is an excellent surgeon. My surgerywent VERY well and the pain afterwards was minimal.

When I go to a doctor I expect said professional to give me more answers than google. Furthermore, I want to know every detail before I accept a surgical diagnosis. Dr. Re seemed impatient and even somewhat condescending answering my questions.I felt like just another number in his patient roster he had to check quickly. Maybe he was having a bad day, but do to his attitude I decided to seek a second opinion, and thank goodness I found a kind and caring doctor.

I was seen surprisingly close to my appointment time which was quite nice. His staff is pleasant to work with. A digital form process would be a nice upgrade especially since there are a few forms which require the same information.Dr. Re himself is efficient. He diagnosed me quickly but I was quite confident with his findings which was quite nice because I wasn’t sure what was wrong with me coming in. He’s also pleasant. He’s a doctor you actually like seeing.

Dr. Re is friendly, and took my relatively minor problem seriously. His office is totally professional and I feel lucky that Dr's like him have stayed in-network to help people who are wealthy and not wealthy. He clearly doesn't need businessfrom public HS teachers, but he accepts the NYC employee insurance. Good for him. And lucky for those of us with sore knees..

Excellent Doc, have recommended him personally to friends. Really attentive, thorough, easy to talk to. Explains everything, takes his time with patients. Wait times have been a bit long when I’ve been there (nothing egregious), so maybe plan for that - but standard of care is totally worth it.

Dr. Re is one of those doctors that will interrupt you constantly but can't stand even the hint of an interruption. He'll just talk over you if you have a question, and was definitely in a rush to get me outthe door. His bedside manner leaves a lot to be desired . He didn't even examine me -- I never even took off my coat! Just talked at me and told me I need surgery. The ego was a bit much for me. I'd rather go somewhere they actually examine me and can stand their patients asking basic questions.

Literally the best experience I've had from start to finish at a medical appointment of any kind. Really at any appointment of any kind. I told them they were role-modeling for other offices. It so simple but so well executed. Aliand Dr. Re were amazing, answering all my questions, explaining everything to me in a way I could understand but with regard as if I were a colleague - and the best part, Dr Re kept saying surgery is the last resort, and emphasized that. For not one second did I feel rushed. And I never had to wait, appointment on time, getting xrays, ultrasounds, the results...everything was immediate. The tightest run ship around. I can only speak for Ali and Dr Re but I can't think of a single thing I would improve. Super impressed. I'd send my parents to see Dr Re - can't think of higher praise than that.
