Patient reviews for Dr. Margaret Kearns-Stanley
I had to wait well past my appointment time because everything seemed to be running behind. The office seemed very unorganized. When I was finally called, the doctor's assistant (or resident I think) came in, she asked me a few questions and had a very judgmental tone the whole time. When she took my blood and examined me, she didn't put gloves on at any point. They handle vials & urine cups with no gloves. Dr. Kearns had no bedside manner and was very matter of fact, also judgmental. Did not feel welcome at all.
She is very thorough and helpful. She’s soft spoken and feels very comfortable to talk to about medical concerns. The wait time was not too bad as far as doctors go.
Excellent: she listens well, is very knowledgeable and thoughtful, and really cares about her patients.
This was my first visit. The doctor was kind and nice.
Great and compassionate doctor who takes time to listen to you
I am so happy to have found a PCP!! I have been looking for someone for years and Dr. Kearns-Stanley is exactly what I wanted in a PCP. Calming, judgement free, efficient but I didn’t feel as if I was being rushed. It was a great experience! Now just waiting for the follow up and I have no doubt she will continue to be wonderful with her treatment strategy!
She is amazing!!!!
I love love love her. She listens, explains, she cares...she is engaged with her patients.
Great doctor - So attentive kind and gentle. It was well worth the wait - I gather this doctor often runs late but I assume that is because she takes the time to listen to her patients. Really really glad I was recommended dr Kearns. Only complain will be about the reception staff - one of the three receptionist was curt and unhelpful. It was a hot day and she refused water to me as well as a seemingly pregnant lady. I understand there is no water cooler in the office but there is no need for the curt and dismissive attitude.
I had been squeezed in the last minute...that was a positive for me.
It was a very good experience.
My primary care doc for 6 years and 5 stars as always!
I loved her perspective on health. It’s clear that she is keeping up to date with the latest and was willing to help me navigate trends vs good practices.
I chose this doctor because I desperately needed a new anti depressant and something else for anxiety because I have pretty bad social phobia. She listened to me then prescribed two medicines she thinks will work, and I'm so excited that someone finally listened to me and prescribed something specifically for anxiety instead of just pushing more anti depressants at me. She is super nice and I'm hopeful that I'll feel better soon.
Have been using MK-S for around 8+ years and she is awesome. She is respectful of time, appointments typically are very close to on-time every time, she spends the amount of time you need and answers questions thoroughly. She also maintains a very well respected list of specialists to refer you to if you need a specialized follow-up. Highly recommended!
Great doctor! Very friendly and listens very well. Only drawback is the waitime and the office is always crowded. But as it confirms she is a great doctor so that's why the waiting room is packed.
She is very attentive and kind and never rushes. Great doctor! I feel so lucky that my I found her practice when my family moved to NYC four years ago.
Margaret was very friendly and took her time to answer any questions that came up.
I have been a patient of Dr. Kearns-Stanley for several years and she is terrific! I love the ease of scheduling appointments with her through Zocdoc. I had an early appointment this morning and she saw me right away. She is personable and I recommend her for anyone who is looking for a general physician.
Pleasant experience all around. I was in & out quickly, & the doctor is attentive & friendly.
Dr. Kearns-Stanley is a sweet doctor who is very down to earth and very professional. She takes her time and I felt very comfortable with her.
She and her team are the best!
Dr Stanley listens and answered all my questions. Wouldn’t go to any other doctor but Dr. Stanley. Trust her work and judgement.
She was Increible!!! She was nice, kind, caring and answered all my questions! I highly recomend her to everyone and anyone!!!!
It was a great experience. I was attended to as soon as i walked in, staff was friendly and efficient. I was taken in my one of the assistant doctors and all info was handled, and then the Doctor came in. She is very pleasant and if bed side manners are important to you, she is great! Going to keep her on as my GP!
The wait was a bit long (35-45 mins) but honestly I didn't mind. My main concern was that the overall exam / appointment was not thorough in the slightest. I was there for an (OBGYN) annual as a new patient. I got the feeling like the doctor was not properly prepared to conduct an annual; there were tools, devices, and clutter on the main countertop (and not ones needed for a pap exam). I was not asked about any current medical concerns or medical history, which I felt should be somewhat relevant as a new patient. Plus someone almost entered the room (very literally) mid exam (FYI there are no locks on the doors), which for a female check up was quite disconcerting. To be fair, I chose to see a family doctor rather than an OBGYN, so perhaps this contributed to my experience? Although she was friendly enough, I will not be back for a second visit.
Dr. Kearns-Stanley was great! Efficient and very friendly, and my 9:15 appointment started around 9:30, so not bad - going early in the day worked out well.
I love Dr. Kearns-Stanley. I saw 2 PCPs in the city before I finally found the right one for me. Great bedside manner - she is personable, kind, and takes her time with her patients. It's always a joy to see her.
Very short wait time at the office. Dr. Kearns-Stanley took my vitals herself (rather than a nurse) and was so thorough and patient in answering all my questions. She has a very calming demeanor and is great at assuaging any nerves or concerns you might have. Got me in and out of my appointment without rushing and made sure I was comfortable the entire time.
Went in for an allergy consultation. Dr. Margaret Kearns-Stanley was very helpful in my diagnosis. She was professional, great bedside manner and was super friendly. I think I finally found the right Primary Care doctor for me!
She's great! Highly recommend her to anyone.
Fantastic first appointment - such a relief to find a great doctor to establish as primary care. Beside manner was great- answered all my questions and was extremely helpful - felt very comfortable. Office staff was helpful and office was very clean. Have already shared contact information with my co-workers.
I can't believe I haven't written a review before now. Dr. K-S has been my PCP for some years now. I love her. She listens, asks thoughtful questions, answers questions thoughtfully, she seems to really care about her patients. Though I book my appointments, I usually have to wait, it's a busy office - but she's great, her staff are nice too.
I arrived 15 minutes early to complete my paperwork (most of which had been done online). Receptionist was highly professional, if not particularly friendly, so I do not understand the somewhat negative reviews about the office staff. The waiting room is a bit small and I could see if would be unpleasant when crowded (which it wasn't when I arrived), but it was clean and comfortable. Dr. Kearns-Stanley establishes a good rapport quickly, which was important to me since I am a nervous patient. She seemed to be confident in her diagnosis; it remains to be seen if the treatment prescribed is effective. I will definitely return for my follow-up and withhold judgment until then.
I have been going to Dr. Kearns-Stanley for four years now and each time she has been warm, direct, and funny!
I went to Dr. Kearns-Stanley for a vaccine and she was happy to chat with me regarding my questions about the vaccine. So personable!
Dr. Kearns-Stanley was very nice and easy to talk to. Appointment didn't feel rushed, but also didn't seem very thorough (this was for a routine physical.) Office wait time was over 30 minutes despite my having filled out paperwork ahead of time.
I have been to this office twice. Both times I have waited for over an hour for my appointment. The second time I needed a prescription called in and the pharmacy never received it.
I am a, needless to say 'nervous' patient...Dr. Kearns-Stanley set me at ease right away and I feel I now have a good partner to get me back on the Healthy Wagon!
Excellent, hands-on doctor. Highly recommended for teens and adults
Great experience, answered all my questions. Front desk was very polite and professional.
Would highly reccomend this doctor to anyone looking for a safe, personable experience. She was kind, patient, and extremely friendly. Felt very comfortable.
Dr. Kearns-Stanley was great - knowledgable and comfortable. Exactly what I was looking for in a primary care physician. Office was easy to get to. Perfect
Simply the best - she is efficient but also friendly. Not too chatty. Set me on a successful treatment plan for my chronic UTIs - the first doc to figure it out after seeing 3-4 others.
My favorite doctor.
Dr. Margaret had a smile the entire visit and it puts you at ease. I saw her for my annual physical which is pretty routine - blood work, blood pressure, listen to the lungs, etc. Her bedside manner is warm and friendly.
She was efficient and informative and made good suggestions for actions that would improve my health.
It's always a pleasure to see Dr. Margaret's smiling face! Though I feel like her office doesn't schedule her correctly because the last few times I've gone I've had to wait 30+ minutes after my appointment time.
She's so great. She's been my primary care physician for about two years now!
I've been seeing Dr. Kearns-Stanley for a few years now and am so happy to finally have a primary that I trust. She is thoughtful, thorough, and never, ever rushed. Recommend her so highly.
