I went with very specific questions & he did not take them seriously, choosing to focus on things that were not health concerns. I only had limited interactions with him and, maybe he's a great doctor in other respects, but I did not have a positive experience with him.

Dr. Ratner is wonderful! He has a sensitive bedside manner in addition to his expertise. If I ever had to leave NYC, I would make the trip back to continue to be monitored by him. I trust Dr. Ratner completely andensure that he is copied on all medical reports I receive from all my doctors, even those not related to my cancer diagnosis. I recommend him with all my heart.

Dr. Ratner is such a nice, kind-hearted guy. He's patient and listens to you, he takes his time with you and expresses legitimate concern. Doesn't rush you out like so many NYC doctors do.

This was my first time with Dr. Ratner, and I had a minor complaint that did not require a long consultation. This is the only reason why I haven't given him five stars - because I simply do not know himthat well. However, he was pleasant and very thorough. I suspect that were I to see him on a regular basis, I would feel very well taken care of.

I have been looking for a goof primary care doctor for a while. I saw a couple doctor's who had insane wait times and didn't seem to care about their patients. Dr. Ratner and his staff were great! I would definitely recommend.

He was terrific. I am awaiting a diagnosis, but he (and the second doctor whose name escapes me) were thorough and warm.

Extremely professional, genial, compassionate doctor. I did not come with any serious health issue but merely to establish a relationship with a PCP, and I do not regret my choice. Wait time was 5 minutes or less. He had a fellowworking with him as well, Dr. Futuri, who was very capable, through, and professional. Incidentally, I fainted when the nurse tried to take blood from my arm, and both Dr. Ratner and Dr. Futuri rushed into the room to make sure I was ok when I regained consciousness. They also went out of their way to make me not feel embarrassed for fainting at the sight of (my own) blood. That experience alone convinces me I made the right choice.

He had a great bedside manner. Sometimes doctors can seem a little grouchy or dismiss concerns. He did not do this and genuinely seemed to care about my health and take me seriously.
