Verified Patient Reviews
Incredibly professional and kind, exactly what you need in a dr. Would have no hesitation to see her again and again. Thank you Dr Mara!!
MD Pulcheri is wonderful. She took her time with me and listened to all of my concerns. She throughly answered my questions. I look forward to my next appointment.
she's so incredible and really makes you feel safe and is incredibly helpful and diligent.
Dr Pulcheri was thorough and spent a long while getting to know me as a patient. A very kind and caring person. She listened to my concerns and I was confident in her recommendations.
My visit with Dr. Pulcheri was great! She answer all of my questions and concerns. She is friendly and kind, would recommend her to all of my friends and associates.
Both the doctor and the staff were very warm and welcoming. The doctor took her time with me and made sure to answer all of my questions thoroughly. I would recommend her to anyone.
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 and conversed 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!
The staff was professional and warm, and I did not have to wait at all to be seen even though I was a first time patient. Dr. Pulcheri is super sweet and was very knowledgeable in terms to getting my medical records up to date for graduate school starting in the fall.
Excellent!! Dr Pulcheri is very thorough, professional & friendly. Great communication & Puts patient at ease.
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 very nice. 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!
I've been going to Dr. Pulcheri for 4 years now and she's great!
No wait time. Friendly and professional staff. Listened to all my concerns. Great bedside manners. Highly recommended.
Best doctor ever!
Very thorough and very knowledgeable. This was my first time seeing her and I felt like she had been my family physician for years.
She was simply amazing!
Very refreshing medical experience! Thorough examination and medical background check. The doctor took the time to hear all of my concerns and was very attentive.
Dr. Pulcheri was excellent! She was very efficient, asked a lot of questions and took a lot of notes. Also, her staff was very friendly. I arrived about 15 minutes early and was walked back by the nurse within minutes. I highly recommend Dr. Pulcheri!
great office + great staff!
The whole office is very friendly and the wait time was very short, only a couple minutes!
Dr. Pulcheri is lovely and good listener. She does care for your health other than your money.
Doctor Pulcheri is really professional. I arrived 30 minutes early and everything was ready, and even with me being early I had to wait less that 5 minutes to start the exam. The exam was thorough but quick. Really great doctor.
Es muy profesional y muy amable y te pone antencion en todo lo que le dices..... excelente
I have been going to Dr. Pulcheri for the past 3 years. She is great!
My visit was more than I expected. She took time with me and was very thorough; making sure I understood. She told me what to do and that she would give me a call the next day re: test results before prescribing medication. The office environment, her assistants, scheduling of follow- up visit and other recommendations was impressive for a first time visit.
Dr. Pulcheri's office is amazing. The first few times I went, I was seen by the PA, Joelle. She is the sweetest person. She remembered details about me from visit to visit and seemed genuinely concerned about me. She was very thorough in her explanations of tests she was running and any discomfort I might feel during them. When I expressed I had felt dizzy, she didn't take that lightly and immediately kicked into action to figure out the cause. Dr. Pulcheri is equally nice. She gets right down to business while still being friendly. She also remembered things about me, which I found surprising for a busy Manhattan office. When something ended up being concerning on one of my tests, she didn't hesitate to explain what it meant and try to keep the results into perspective and keep me calm about the situation. It wasn't a HUGE problem, but I felt myself starting to freak out and she could tell and helped me relax. If I still lived in NYC, I would go to her for as long as I could.
Everyone in this office is so kind and professional. They even squeezed my daughter in after my appointment because she was complaining of a sore throat, though we did not have an appointment for her. We are very happy with our experience here.
Very kind, easy to talk to.
She was kind, quick, and listened to what I had to say. Highly recommend.
Very professional and courteous staff. I was in and out in under 40 min and received a full physical. Would highly recommend Dr. Pulcheri.
I have always had a wonderful experience with Dr. Pulcheri and her entire office. They are friendly and professional and very responsive to my questions. Dr. Pulcheri is a pleasure to interact with and she has the ability to be fast while still giving you full attention, answering all of your questions and take care of you completely. This is something that I have not always experienced at other doctor's offices and the main reason why I love Dr. Pulcheri so much. I highly recommend her!!

Dr. Pulcheri was outstanding. She was super quick and made me totally comfortable. I highly recommend

Dr Pulcheri is Amazing!! very warm and friendly. She listened to all of my concerns and made me feel at ease. She did a very thorough assessment and all the necessary work! I found my new PCP!
I thought she was overall a really great doctor. However the office itself was a little unkept for my standards of a doctors office. It did feel like an apartment.
Wonderful doctor! She listened to my questions and was very thorough. Her office staff are friendly and swift. Very clean. Glad to find such a good doctor as my primary care and ob/gyn!
Excellent bedside, thorough, knowledgeable, pleasant. Would highly recommend.
Dr. Pulcheri took the time to talk to me about any ongoing health concerns that I had. She has a wonderful bedside manner. Highly recommend!

She is great. Unfortunately, she is becoming a "concierge" doctor soon therefore not necessarily the best option for new patients any more
Excellent doctor, highly recommend, will return in the future for sure
I love Dr. Pulcheri, she is so fun and informative and just like me. You can tell she really wants to get to the root of the issue and is very patient in explaining everything. I always feel so comfortable there.

I never have to wait around, and Dr Pulcheri is an excellent Doctor with a fantastic personality.
I've been to Dr. Pulcheri multiple times since my first appointment booked through ZocDoc. She's very kind, very knowledgeable, and I feel confident whenever I leave her office. I'm never in the waiting room for more than 10 minutes and the receptionists are also friendly and helpful.

genuine and friendly. Will go back
She is very nice!
This was fast, clean and exactly what I needed. I did feel a little like the doctor was in a rush and did not take any time to see if I had any other concerns or needs, I did have some questions but ended up deciding not to ask because I felt as though she was in a rush, but overall a positive experience.
Dr Pulcheri is fantastic. She is very knowledgable and thorough and always makes me feel at ease.
Very knowledgeable and helpful.
The practice team were very friendly and prompt and Dr. Pulcheri was professional but very personable and kind. Gave me plenty of advice and answered questions throughout my visit and never rushed me.
Dr Pulcherri is always personable, prompt, and thorough.
Excelente profesional. Explica todo claro, seria y simpatica al mismo tiempo. Uno se siente comodo. Es muy calidad, punto importante para un medico clinico. Habla español y portugues.
I arrived very early, which is probably why I had to wait. I didn't find the nurse who saw me initially to be very competent. Although Dr. Pulcheri seemed very competent, I didn't find the staff to be the same.
Dr. Pulcheri was kind and efficient, taking a genuine concern into my daily life beyond my health. I am excited to have found her!
I cannot speak highly enough of this doctor or this office. I've been going here for over a year for physicals, annual pap and breast exams, and when I'm sick and don't want to go to Urgent Care. Everyone who works in this office is polite, friendly, and professional. I've never waited more than a few minutes to be taken back. Dr. Pulcheri answers all of my questions, makes suggestions and referrals, and actually listens to what I'm saying. I love this office!
Very kind, professional, thorough.
I liked her.
Dr. Pulcheri was great! I have been looking for a PCP for a while and no one has taken the time to listen to me and my concerns because they all thought I was to young to worry. Dr. Pulcheri made me feel very comfortable and was very easy to talk to. She is very knowledgeable, she answered all my questions, referred me to a few specialist. She's a keeper!!!!!
She was great! Super nice and professional!
La Dr. Pulcheri ha sido muy clara y muy amable en el trato y contesto todas mis consultas. Muy recomendable!
She was very nice and respectful, and I appreciated how thorough she was during the visit.
Dr. Pulcheri is great! I'd highly recommend her to anyone. She has a great bedside manner and made me feel comfortable right away. Very personable and professional as well. Glad to have finally found my NY doctor after a few tries!
Dr. Pulcheri was very nice and professional. Her staff were also quite professional and did not ignore me or treat me as a nuisance to their day as many other receptionists have done in the past. I quickly filed all of my information with her and waited a bit before she was available. All in all, I would say that the experience was relatively quick, efficient and that she helped me understand what was wrong in a effective and clear manner.
Dr. Pulcheri was informative and funny. Will definitely make her my regular physician!
Always felt extremely comfortable and well taken care of when visiting Dr. Pulcheri. Only reason I'm changing doctors is because I moved. :-/
Kind, efficient, excellent
Dr. Pulcheri was great! Very thorough, attentive and professional. So glad I found her!
Dr. Mara was amazing. I was seen right away and both the nurse and the doctor were extremely pleasant. I felt extremely comfortable. Dr. Mara was very thorough and easy to talk to. I am not a fan of visiting the doctor but I can say I will def come back to Dr. Mara.
Can't recommend her enough. Very patient and thorough.
Dr. Pulcheri was fantastic. I arrived 30 minutes early and they took me right away. She was sweet and professional and took care of everything I needed. I was finished even before my scheduled appointment time, which was great. I highly recommend her!
She was great! Kind, informative, and very helpful
Really sweet, attentive and someone I felt comfortable with immediately. She had to refer me to a radiologist, and reception was able to get me in the same day. Overall, I've always had a good experience at this office.
She was very helpful and asked questions for things I hadn't thought of to mention. She was very understanding even though I was late due to traffic. I will be very happy to stay with her as a permanent pcp.
Dr. Pulcheri and her staff are friendly, efficient (while still explaining things completely) and completely thorough. She really takes time to explain all questions fully and has a very friendly bedside manner. I have recommended her office to a few friends and they are all very happy with her.
She is always so pleasant. I never feel rushed, and she actually listens!
Mara was very calm and comforting. I saw her for my annual gynecological exam and PAP smear. She was gentle, kind, and explained everything clearly. I would recommend her.
At first she seemed a little "tense" and for a split second I thought that maybe the "chemistry" wasn't there, but she was probably just concentrating and it was not a negative feeling really.. We then started talking, and right away she was very professional, really friendly and warm, funny too, and most of all, just a "normal" human being (in a good way!), and a very knowledgeable doctor (it seemed to me). She asked many questions, explained things and answered questions. I felt bad because I brought my 2 year-old alond, and on top of that there was a sensitive issue to address but Dr Pulcheri made me feel very at ease. Quick and painless, 100% recommended.
Very good doctor.
Both she and her nurse were lovely. They had me come back in for a follow up in person to discuss next steps for health care. Great experience!
Very friendly and listened to everything I had to say. More like having a conversation than her just hearing my symptoms and diagnosing me right away
Lovely bedside manner. Very thorough and knowledgable.
I met with Mara for the first time today and had a great experience. I was there for my pap smear exam and Mara was very gentle with me and super kind. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a new physician.
I have been looking for a PCP for quite some time, and not just any pcp, someone who would really take the time to listen to me and my concerns. Dr. Pulcheri did just that. Her office staff is wonderful, the nurse very pleasant and the doctor herself was super awesome. I waited less then 5 minutes in the waiting area before being called into a room. I have had only one visit with her and already recommended her to two of my coworkers. I would highly recommend Dr. Pulcheri and look forward to my next follow up visit.
Dr. Pulcheri and her assistant were wonderful. She listened carefully and made sure to cover any previous illnesses I've had. Blood work was done during the appointment. I was thoroughly impressed!
She was great! Listened to my needs, to the point and team was great as wel!!!
She was very friendly, ask me a lot of questions but was straight to the point. Answer all my questions and concerns even when remember a question after my consultation. Definitely recommend her, they took care of really fast. The nurse was great as well very friendly.
The visit was excellent. The doctor Pulcheri ask questions and listen and at the end of the visit she ask if I had any questions. I would recommend her to my coworkers and friends. She is courteous and professional.
My appointment with Dr. Pulcheri was great. I liked that there was minimal paperwork and that I could complete it prior to the visit. The office staff was friendly. I waited about 5 minutes for the nurse and then another 10 for the doctor. Dr. Pulcheri was personable and pleasant. She spoke quickly but was thorough and offered many opportunities to ask questions. Overall an excellent experience and I will definitely continue seeing her.
Dr. Pulcheri is friendly and very thorough. You can tell she really cares about her patients. I've gone back to her a few times for various reasons, and I've never had a problem getting an appointment in a short amount of time. She's also great about talking on the phone and will call back within a day. Everybody in the office is kind and efficient!
Comfortable and profession experience. Dr.Pulcheri is very sweet and spends time to understand your history, questions, and any concerns.
She is great. Very friendly and thorough. The staff was good too.
My first time here as a new patient. Office was charming, clean, and orderly. The receptionist staff was polite and organized (big plus for that). Even though I was 10 minutes late, I was seen right away by the Nurse Assistant, who was courteous and professional. My experience with Dr. Pulcheri matched other reviews from this website. She was very professional, easy to talk to, and concerned about the me--the patient. She also really took her time to talk to me, listen, and did not try to rush the exam--which is really important. I've experienced that at other Park Ave. medical practices and was very turned off by that. If you're looking for a new PCP, go here.
I went for a pre-operation check-up, filled out simple form online prior to visit. There were no other forms. Dr. Pulcheri is lovely, great bedside manner, smart, caring. She asked lots of questions about my health history, listened carefully while I went on about everything I could think of, never made me feel rushed. She will be my new primary care doctor!
Took a genuine interest in the patient, and offered a careful solution. Very pleased!
She was great, sweet and friendly. Asked me if I had any questions before the visit was over. She was also thorough and caring. I would recommend her to my friends.
I've never been so impressed by a physician's treatment, professionalism, accessibility, and bedside manner. Dr. Pulcheri and her sterling support staff are beyond courteous, caring, and helpful. I've never been loyal to healthcare professionals--I bounce around from PCPs and specialists--but there's a first time for everything! I've already recommended her practice to a handful of friends. Thank you, Dr. Pulcheri, for making an unfortunate time in my life so much more palatable.
Dr. Pulcheri was very prompt, warm, and friendly. I will definitely be coming back, and recommending her practice to my friends!
I walked in and the receptionist was very professional. As a new patient, I was given paperwork to fill out and the waiting time was minimal. When I was taken into a room, a nurse asked and clarified my reason for being there. She took detailed notes and Dr. Pulcheri didn't make me repeat myself when she entered the room. Dr. Pulcheri asked some more questions and explained anything I didn't understand when she was talking.
She is incredible! I have been seeing her for a while now, and I am very very pleased with her!
Dr Pulcheri is great. Happy to have her as my primary care doctor!
Efficient and thorough
Very professional, very kind, very friendly and makes you feel very comfortable!! I'm now changing doctors to see her for all my medical needs :)

Mara Pulcheri is the best doctor I ever had. She is patient, thorough, kind, and extremely smart. I'm grateful for the time I had under her care.
Dr. Pulcheri is thoughtful and kind. I have had trouble finding a PCP that I feel comfortable with, but that is not an issue with Dr. Pulcheri. She is great. Also, I almost always get seen immediately. The longest I had had to wait is 5 minutes.
I appreciate that Dr. Pulcheri did not brush away my concerns. She actively listened and provided a care plan with which I was comfortable. I recommended and will visit Dr. Pulcheri again.
very nice and friendly! Will be returning
Mara was great; very attentive, personable and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend!
I have had many doctors in my day and I can say with complete certainty that Dr. Pulcheri is by far the best. She makes you feel very comfortable and confident in her treatment recommendations. I strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a doctor.
She gave me a great impression that she was confident about what she was talking about. But she was also very friendly and very personable.
Dr. Pulcheri was friendly, attentive and very thorough. She listened to and appropriately addressed my concerns. This was my first time seeing her, but I will definitely continue to see her in the future as my Primary Care doctor.

Very professional, short wait time, knowledgeable, no rush and great supporting staff. A complete package!
Doctor Pulcheri was extremely professional and kind. She was efficient and took the time to ask about any issues I currently was experiencing.
Both Dr. Pulcheri and her staff were extremely friendly and professional. They took the time to answer all of my questions, but they also saw me right away and were quick to ask their own questions and take their tests. I got in and out of her office extremely quickly AND got all my questions answered - ideal!
Dr. Pulcheri was so nice (even funny!), compassionate, and thorough. Best of all: I don't think I waited even 3 minutes to get started!
Dr. Pulcheri was great. Didn't have to fill out excessive paperwork and she helped refer me to other doctors for follow up. Super nice!
I've only been seen by Dr Pulcheri once, and she was great. The other times I was seen by NP Joelle Koplin, who is very thorough and very nice. Very happy with this clinic.
Dr. Pulcheri was excellent - extremely professional, thorough, and she seemed to really care. The nurse who helped me was also great. Highly recommend.
Mara is 100% the best doctor I have ever been to. As someone who suffers with severe anxiety when having to deal with anything medical, Mara comforted me, which is something no doctor has ever done for me before. She cares about her patients and even gave me a hug at the end of our appointment. Highly recommended!
Very personable and knowledgeable. Cared to ask questions and know background, which is much appreciated
Efficient front office experience, appointment started RIGHT on time, all assistants and Dr Mara herself were very pleasant. I never felt rushed. I was able to ask all my questions and enjoyed speaking with the doc. Will definitely visit this office again!
Professional and Friendly office. They show you that they really care. Dr. Pulcheri is absolutely awesome.
She is Excellent
very knowledgeable and helpful. she listened to my symptoms and was super nice!
Im hesitant to brag about Dr Pulcheri because once word gets out how amazing she is, she's going to become in high demand
Dr Pulcheri is fantastic. My wait time was about 5 minutes, and once she came in she spent a good amount of time getting to know my history. She is one of the more personable doctors I've ever seen. I highly recommend her!
Dr. Pulcheri is very professional. She is great at creating rapport with patients which makes you comfortable addressing any problems that need to be discussed. She is also direct about health issues and addressing them directly. I am fortunate to have been seen by Dr. Pulcheri
Everything goes smoothly. It is prompt, professional and all around great service :)
I loved that the office staff were nice and friendly. This is not a factory, where there are a ton of doctors, this is personal. I waited about 5 minutes after sitting down. I didn't fill out any paperwork regarding my medical history, Dr. Pulcheri and I just spoke. She was very thorough, knowledgeable and kind. I was with her for more than 30 minutes! Most importantly, she laughed at my jokes!
Dr. Pulcheri is an amazing clinician. She is warm, gentle and knows her stuff. I neer felt rushed. She answered all of my questions and gave great recommended courses of action. She was also very respectful of time. More doctors should take note of these things. Overall a wonderful experience.
Doctor was great we talked and she listened to everything i had to say.
She is amazing ! And I felt very comfortable to speak with her about very privet things - usually it is hard for me. I apprucuate the information and the answers she gave me to my questions about my body now and in the future. She was Prophesional ! And very very swee and nice !!!! I am very satisfied .
This was a good visit. I went in earlier this year for a cold/ flu, had the rapid test for the Flu and was prescribed Tami flu- I have not gotten sick since.i would go back,
Dr Pulcheri is very nice, caring and knowledgeable. While many doctors rush the patients nowadays, Dr Pulcheri made sure to listen to all my concerns and let me ask questions. I felt very comfortable when I talked to her. Great doctor!
She is the BEST. GOOD DOCTOR WITH A GREAT SOUL. Thank you so much. She speaks spanish as well!!
Excellent visit. Staff and assistants are wonderful; Dr. Pulcheri was so attentive and patient, listening to all of my questions, making sure I was comfortable, and having lots of great ideas. She's a keeper. I'll be recommending her to all of my friends.
I was very happy with my experience with this doctor.
I absolutely loved everything about my visit, she is so caring and thoughtful and thorough, I never felt as well taken care of during a general consultation as I did with her. Her staff is kind and caring as well and there is a pleasant atmosphere in the waiting room. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a GP in the city!
When she begins the exam, Dr. Pulcheri has excellent bedside manner. She explains things well and overall seems to be a good doctor. I will be a returning patient. The profile picture is an accurate representation.
Excellent doctor who is not only highly knowledgeable, but extremely kind and caring. She took her time speaking with me, getting to know me and my concerns, and talking me through everything. She made me feel very comfortable, and I will definitely be seeing her as my primary care doctor from now on!
I've only seen her once, so I don't want to jump the gun as far as long term care, but this was the most pleasant, thorough, professional doctor appt I've had in NYC. Leaps and bounds above everyone else I've seen. Many thanks!
She was thorough, friendly, kind and knowledgable
Dr. Pulcheri was amazing! She spent 30 minutes talking with me and was extremely understanding of my concerns. She really made me feel like a person she cared about, not just another patient to deal with as quickly as possible.
One of the best doctors I've seen.
After relocating from the Midwest to NYC, I was nervous to pick a doctor, but after reading reviews on Dr. Pulcheri, I decided to give her a shot, and I am SO happy that I did! I arrived almost 30 minutes early and was greeted by two very friendly receptionists. Since I had already checked in online I didn't need to fill out any paper work upon arrival. All I needed to do was hand them my insurance card and take a seat. By the time I had picked up a magazine to read while I waited, they called my name and I was already in the room getting checked in. Dr. Pulcheri and her staff were incredibly thorough and asked me every question doctors usually skip over. She also prescribed me medication that most doctors aren't even aware is available for patients, which I am ecstatic about. Dr. Pulcheri also took my blood sample herself because her assistant was too busy! I was so comfortable with everyone and my visit was quick, thorough and headache free!! I am recommending Dr. Pulcheri to all of my friends and associates!
I felt very comfortable, at ease!
Dr. Pulcheri is really professional and is thorough. She makes sure that everything is done the right way and explained everything to me.
Mara has been very attentive in every visit. I saw her twice this year for my annual preventive care. In the first visit, we spent great length talking about my health, family illness history, current activities, mental wellness, etc. She demonstrate great bedside manners, not rushing the visit. The second time, was a follow up and by the time we met, she already had reviewed my blood results and we went thru all figures.
She was very attentive, didn't make me feel rushed with my questions, yet she still completed my yearly exam quickly and efficiently. She was very friendly, and I'm hoping I've found a new primary physician.
excellent experience. She and the staff are polite, informative and nice. More importantly, the office is very clean and neat.
Dr. Mara is wonderful. She is easy to talk to and quite personable. I felt very comfortable with her, and will absolutely be keeping her as my Primary Physician.
Extremely happy with her care and bedside manner. She took the time to get to know me and was genuine. She took my concerns into consideration. I would highly recommend her.
Love her. She is super friendly and very helpful
Dr. Pulcheri is very friendly and made me feel comfortable and at ease even though I was in pain when I saw her. She asked me whether I want her to do the exam or to refer me to a gastrologist, which is nice I think for a doctor to ask her patient. This is the first time I saw her but I left her office happy.
Very friendly and knowledgable and I feel extremely comfortable talking to her. Highly recommended!
She is super nice! Very helpful!
Dr. Pulcheri was great. I set up my next appointment right away.
Dr. Mara is caring and extremely pleasant
She explained symptoms and treatment well. (However I am not good at speaking and listening English, I could understand what she explained easily. Of course I had checked and understood the basic GYN terminologies before the exam.) She listened carefully what I said and answered all of my questions.
Mara is extremely knowledge and very friendly. I look forward to going back.
She was great - I was immediately comfortable discussing what was going on. Very thorough and ensured I felt all my questions had been answered.
The entire staff was friendly, not something I've found when visiting other doctor's offices in the city. Dr. Pulcheri was very nice and explained everything in simple terms.
Dr. Pulcheri was quite friendly, and very knowledgeable. She and her assistant were very thorough and professional. Being a dentist myself, it is a great pleasure to find colleagues who go beyond the call of duty and make the patient feel comfortable and at ease. I would highly recommend her to my friends and dental patients alike!
This was my first time at Dr. Pulcheri's office and I am definitely going to make her my primary care physician. She is very personable and does a phenomenal job explaining medical terms in simple English. Everyone in the practice including the receptionist and nurse were also very attentive.
Dr. Pulcheri is friendly, understanding and warm while being professional and exuding a sense of truly loving her job. I highly recommend Dr. Pulcheri.
Very thorough, great listener, answered all my questions and took time to go seek out the answer to a question she didn't know off the top of her head
My appointment with Dr. Pulcheri was amazing. She and her other staff members were exceptionally friendly and helpful, and Dr. Pulcheri spent so much time with me helping me to understand a somewhat scary condition. It was my first appointment with her, but she treated me like I had been her patient for years. She took so much time and care to make sure I understood what was happening and asked me a ton of questions so she could better prepare next steps for me. I really felt so well cared for, and I will absolutely be going back to her for as long as I need a doctor in NYC.
She's such a great doctor. She really takes the time to sit with you and make sure all your questions are answered.
Today was my first appt w Dr Pulcheri and I am already going back in a few days for a gyn visit. She saw me right away and is a total sweetheart. Felt totally comfortable and at ease talking with her. Absolutely recommend her!
First visit with Mara, she and her nurse were extremely nice. She was informative and engaging, quick but explained everything carefully.
Dr. Pulcheri was great. She was a great listener and very sincere. Dr. Pulcheri was so nice and genuinely cares about her patients. I'm glad I found my new PMD.
She is extremely nice and makes you feel very comfortable. No complaints - will definitely be making future appointments with her.
Efficient. Kind. Matter of fact. Direct and accomodating.
