Once I checked in, I was immediately brought back to the exam room. I did not have to wait even one second. Once I was in the exam room, the medical assistant was in the room taking my blood pressure withinabout 30 seconds. So, the office is very efficient! In addition, Dr.Pulcheri is the best- she knowledgeable, she always takes the time to listen to my concerns, and she takes all of my concerns seriously. She does not brush them off. In addition, she is pleasant, friendly, and easy to talk to. I highly recommend Dr. Pulcheri.

I arrived early and was seen right away. She was friendly and had a good sense of humor. I felt confident In her care and will continue to see her. She was even the one to perform basic things that aMedical Assistant would perform. I appreciated it because I felt like she got a full understanding of my history. Wonderful.

Dr. Pulcheri is honestly the best doctor I've ever had. She's thorough and never rushes. She's very inquisitive which sometimes throws me off guard because at times doctor's rush and make it seem like you're wasting their time. Not Dr. Pulcheri.I've been a patient for over two years and will continue to sing her praises whenever Zocdoc asks for a review.

She's amazing. Not supercilious, but just down-to-earth and infinitely respectful. I'm definitely not the easiest patient (anxiety, obese, white coat syndrome, etc.), but she never once minimized my concerns, and listened patiently andconversed with me about my options. The handshake at the end almost felt like a hug. My comfort was cemented when she took my vitals (including blood pressure and bloodwork) herself, as she thought i might be more nervous with an assistant. Honestly, I look forward to seeing her again. Can't remember the last time i had that feeling. So relieved to find a good doctor, finally!

I recently moved to New York and did not have an internist I could go to for check ups as well as illnesses. I scheduled an appointment with Mara the day before. When I arrived, the staff were all verynice. The appointment was on time and Mara was amazing! The entire visit she listed to me, addressed all of my concerns/question and I felt she addressed everything better than most doctors I have seen. Also she seemed generally concerned for her patients well being which made the experience even better for me. I will definitely be going back to see Mara!
