Verified Patient Reviews
I've been to Dr. Bagner many times before and he's always been a very patient, caring doctor. I must say that, during this last visit, I felt he was either a bit checked out or he had too many patients scheduled or something, because I very much felt like he was trying to get through my appointment as quickly as he could. I asked a few questions and got very curt answers. It certainly isn't a reason not to go back to him since this was the only time I've ever experienced that situation with him, but it would have been nice if he'd felt more present in the room.
Best doctor ever. Been his patient for years.
I have seen Dr. Bagner and he is GREAT! took the time to talk with me and listened, not a lot of Drs will do now a days. This last appointment I was disappointed as ZocDoc scheduled the appointment and was confirmed, but when I got there, Dr. Bagner was not in the office and the staff advised I should've called to confirm appointment even though it was confirmed with ZocDoc. I guess the two systems do not communicate with each other.
I was afraid to sound like a complainer, but I did have quite a few issues I wanted to mention. The doctor did not make me feel like a complainer which put me at ease. I felt he was pretty thorough.
Very nice and professional
Dr. Bagner and his staff were very professional and thorough. Highly recommended.
Overall are great person and doctor.
He is the best primary Doctor I've known.
Hes the best GP Ive ever had. Hes got excellent bedside manner and hes really knowledgable. You never feel rushed. Most of all he remembers his patients. I told him about something last year that was going on, totally unmedically related, and he remembered and asked me about it this year. Awesome human being!
Review of medical history and through follow up.
Dr. Bagner has been my PCP for more than a decade, and I find him alert, pleasant, very up-to-date about medical research, attentive to my concerns and issues I may need to consider. And his diagnoses turn out to be correct, with efficacious treatments.
Dr Bagner is so compassionate and very informative. He is very caring and takes the time to explain and answer all my concerns.
Visit went well, as always. Wait a bit longer then normal, and something was wrong with ac, but that has nothing to do with Dr Bagner and his staff are always professional. I highly recommend Dr Bagner.
A recommendation from a friend and he will now be my new Doctor.
He was OK when I met him in person, he seemed very rushed and spent a total of 5 mins with me. Dr Bagner discussed running a few tests and let me know that the clinic staff would be in touch to schedule. 2 months later I receive a bill for my visit. No follow up from the clinic or Dr Bagner at all. Wouldn't recommend Dr Bagner or the clinic.
Very friendly and empathetic doctor - will definitely make him my new physician!
I am very pleased with the quality of care and attention I received from Dr. Bagner. He took time to listen to my concerns and provided clear and informative insight to my issues and next steps. I never felt rushed. He is an excellent doctor, I am glad I found him!
Impersonal but satisfactory.
I highly reccomend Dr Bagner. Its a terrific doctor.
Dr. Bagner has always been an amazing doctor! I've been going to him for years. He takes the time to really understand his patients concerns, needs and provides great solutions. You can see that he really cares for his patients which is amazing especially with how many people he takes care of!
Dr. Bagner is my primary care physician and has been for more than 10 years now. Hes the best.
I've been going to Dr. Bagner for over 7 years and he is just the best. He is relatable and takes his times explaining things- and he actually cares. He always gives me a ring back when needed and just overall, the best.
It was an excellent visit. The doctor was very informative and thorough.
Dr Bagner listened to my concerns and performed the necessary checks but I felt that my appointment was rushed.
I have been a patient of Dr. Bagner and he is great. He was quick to have me leave which is a little unusual for him for a follow up appointment. I don't like the day before confirmation phone calls from the front desk confirming the appointment and they try to pry and find out the real reason of the appointment. For example "I see you listed this on zocdoc", and after I clarified "ok I will let the doctor know" as if I want to waste the doctors time and come over to play...no thank you-no one has the time to do that.
Dr. Bagner was thorough, concerned, polite and clearly explained the issue I am dealing with. He is a real gentleman and a highly competent doctor.
Dr. Bagner did a great job treating me. He is very nice and easy to talk to. I have had a great experience with him.
He was very friendly and was a good listener.
Went as expected
I have been seeing Doctor Bagner for years and now must of my co-workers go to him as well. I have recommended him highly.
As always Dr. Bagner is a compassionate, creative, kind Doctor. I think he is terrific.
As always, Dr. Bagner listened sympathetically and answered all my questions to my full satisfaction. He is a fine physician.
He listens to his patients
Dr. Bagner is great! He's been my primary since I moved to NYC in 2005. Dr. Bagner is genuine, attentive, and very knowledgeable. Regarding the latter, I appreciate that he's up on the most current studies and he explains it in every language with respect, rather than a superiority complex. Whether it's an annual physical or simply a follow-up for medication, Dr. Bagner always takes his time during my visits; he doesn't make me feel like I'm just another person taking up his time. I'm really grateful to him and his medical staff. I always recommend him when friends/co-workers are looking for a primary doctor.
Always attentative with good feedback. Listens and responds with practical and knowledgeable answers.
Visited Dr. Michael Bagner based on a recommendation from a neighbor and had been looking for someone in the neighborhood. I was thoroughly please with the office itself, the staff and of course the Dr. I think I just found my new primary!
Always perfect. Dr Bagner is clear, direct, thoughtful, concise, with a sense of humor. I always feel like I'm with someone who is know,edgewble, caring, and knows what he's doing. His medical technician and the front desk staff are friendly, efficient, and sensitive as well.
Quiet office, knowledgeable staff, great doctor...what else is there to say?!
Very knowledgeable and technical! Best general physician I've had to date and will definitely stick with him.
Very pleased with short wait time.
It was great. A very positive experience
Pleasant, efficient, extremely competent - a very customer focused physician.

Fantastic, thorough, and cares. I love him!
I love Dr. Bagner! He's been my PCP for a few years now and I've excellent experiences at his office. The front office is very professional and polite. Appointment times are almost always right on time! Dr. Bagner himself is excellent. He's patient, has excellent bedside manner, very informative, and overall a really nice guy.
As always, the visit was very professional, pleasant, helpful, informative, clarifying, and relieving.
Efficient office, thoughtful team. Highly recommend.
Dr. Banger was thorough in his examination and gave me good health tips I will follow.
It was of the highest professional quality as usual and I really appreciate what he does for my health and well being.
As always, I love my Dr. Bagner. Professional, thorough, knowledgeable, clear, caring, direct, provides alternatives, is prepared, the front desk is efficient and friendly, the physician's assistant is relaxing, thorough, and knows her stuff, too.
It was a good visit. However, the clerical staff may be inadequate since my pharmacy says they have failed to send my multiple prescriptions.
Excellent bedside manner. Not a doom or gloom type of doctor. Highly knowledgeable, and willing to listen to what you as the patient have to say. I highly recommend.
As always, a very pleasant and thorough visit. Dr. Bagner takes the time to explain his diagnosis and makes sure I understand everything he's telling me. One of the friendliest doctors I've ever had.
Warm and friendly. Answered all my questions and gave me advice specific to my age, weight, gender, etc.
Dr Bagner listens and is knowledgeable.
Dr. Bagner was very friendly and professional. He made me feel at ease. I am happy I chose him as my primary care physician
He is gentle caring and compassionate. Listens attentively and keeps accurate records of all my tests and visits.
Dr Bagner and his staff are the best
I went for a physical and he didn't really do any of the necessary things that usually come along with a physical exam. He only checked my blood pressure and made me breathe in and out. That was about it.
This was my first visit with Dr Bagner. The doctor had great bedside manner and was very personable. He took the time to answer my questions and explained what he was doing. The office was clean and the front desk associate was friendly. Highly recommend!
always a pleasure
Excellent experience. I am so happy to find this doctor and his medical office. Professional, efficient, courteous, knowledgeable and patient. Went during what was obviously a very busy day and waited only 30 minutes. Doctor and his staff saw me immediately thereafter, did what they needed to do and had me out of there in less than an hour. Dr. Bagner was extremely helpful and delivered a good wellness examination.
First visit - to establish Dr. Bagner as my primary care physician. The staff, including Tulsa, handled my intake and support of the doctor efficiently and professionally. The doctor had an unhurried style and offered explanations of various courses of preventive diagnostic tests professionally and at my level.
I hadn't had an annual physical in several years, and am so happy with my choice of Dr. Bagner as my new primary care doctor. He's calm, really took his time answering all my questions, and gave me better advice than three separate specialists I had seen about an issue I've had for years.
A quite helpful visit. As usual, very fine patient care by Dr. B.
Dr. Bagner has been my primary care physician for several years now. He continues to be someone I trust and genuinely enjoy seeing. He's thorough, very approachable, and doesn't rush. I appreciate that he's cautious, when necessary, but also reasonable about when medical interventions are truly appropriate and necessary. I think another major strength of his how he keeps on top of the latest research in health and is able to break it down to you to easily understand and apply.
Dr. Bagner has been my primary care physician for years. I can not say enough good things about him. He is attentive, listens, & provides overall great care.
As always - professional, well informed, accurate, thoughtful, thought provoking, incisive, and efficient.
Great Dr and a professional. Have been going to him for many many years. Always a pleasure. He's a good and trusted dr. And I highly recommend him. Thanks
Very happy with my choice of dr Bagner. They took me right away for vitals and then a short wait to see dr. Less then 10 minutes. Great bedside manner and he was very attentive. Highly recommend!
I had to switch a prescription last minute and he got it done
My doc dropped out of my insurance plan, so I went to Dr. B, as he is my husbands doc. Definitely glad this all happened, he was great, no nonsense, and very cool to talk with.
I love Dr. Bagner!
Dr. Bagner was terrific, he spent quite a bit of time with me and was very personable.
I was actually supposed to be 15 mins earlier than my appt and I was 30 mins late. Dr. Bagner still took me anyway which was super awesome!
Dr. Bagner sensed the seriousness of my condition and spent a lot of time trying to diagnose it. I really appreciate it.
Annual physical went very smooth and was very pleased with the visit
I've been seeing Dr. Bagner for the better part of 7 or 8 years now. In NYC where there's a medical group on every other corner, that says plenty. I appreciate that he's straightforward and doesn't sugarcoat his advice or reactions; yet takes the time to explain *anything* you ask (I ask a lot of questions).
great as always. very thorough.
Dr. Bagner has a great bedside manner, and has always been responsive to any questions or concerns.
I really appreciated his willingness to listen and let's-check-it-out attitude. Plus, he fast response via email. Would definitely recommend. Also, I waited less than five minutes each time I went in. My only complaint would be the front office staff sometimes isn't on top of everything.
Very knowledgeable, excellent bedside manner , great staff . I'm convinced and highly recommend!
Thorough exam, detailed explanation and overall efficient visit.
I think highly of Dr. Bagner. I was not too pleased about waiting for an hour to see him. Inasmuch as it was a first, I am aware things come up and so assume it was unavoidable.
Best Primary I have ever had!
Been going to him for 4 years...he is terrific!
I really love Dr. Bagner and his entire team. They are very nice and calm, I never feel pressured or rushed, but also my time is never wasted.
A long wait with no updates as to the doctor's status and I missed my next appointment as a result. Otherwise, he seems like a fine doctor.
This wonderful Doctor saved my life the visit before this one. Took me on time and answered all my concerns and has me on the correct medication for my condition. Would and have recommended him in a heartbeat.
I've been seeing Dr Bagner for years - he's excellent. Many of my friends see him too.
Comforted to know that I found a great doctor when forced out of using prior doctors because of these crazy insurance problems we have.
Very professional and personable. Glad to have found an MD who I can stick with for years to come.
My first visit was for an annual physical. I found Dr. Bagner to be a warm, friendly and extremely knowledgeable physician. He was patient and spent quality time answering all my questions. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a good primary care physician.
As always, I was totally satisfied with my visit with Dr. Bagner. He always provides the information I request.
I've been seeing Dr Bagner for at least 8 years now. He's kind yet professional, open and honest and also friendly and personable. The staff at the practice is on point and the facility is very clean and well run. I've lived all over NYC and have never thought about leaving Dr Bagner and the Roosevelt/Mt Sinai practice.
I love this doctor. I have been seeing him for about a decade. You rarely wait long to see him, and he is very thorough. I've never felt rushed. Really nice guy.
Always have excellent care from Dr. Bagner. It is clear he truly cares about your health. It did take a while after my appointment time to see the doctor.
Dr. Bagner is great!!
Probably one of the best doctors I've ever been to. He's extremely thoughtful and patient and really takes the time to talk to you and understand what's going on. He also explains everything super thoroughly so you understand exactly why he's running a certain test or prescribing a certain drug. I've had other doctors be rude, dismissive, or chalk all my symptoms up to stress (I once had a doctor respond to a mention of insomnia with "Nobody in this city sleeps. Deal with it), but Dr. Bagner actually listens with an open mind.
I really liked his attention to detail and ability to quickly focus on what was most important. The office staff was also super friendly and the whole appointment was a great experience.
Dr. Bagner is patient, easy to talk to and concerned for my health. He seems like a very caring guy. Such a difference from most physicians I've seen. Takes his time (unless I just caught him on a good day!) listens attentively and asks questions. Left feeling heard.
Very professional and scientific but still human and personal. The ideal disposition for a GP.
My experience at Dr. Bagners office is always great. Very peoffecional staff all around and a friendly atmosphere.
The best. Kind, generous with time and info. Lucky to have found this doc.
I've been going to Dr. Bagner as my Primary Care Physician for years. He's a very busy doctor yet somehow always manages to take as much time as needed to discuss everything with me. He's very responsive whenever I have follow up questions after a visit. Just a friendly, kind, good doctor who knows his stuff. Highly recommend!
Dr. Bagner is excellent! He's been my PCP for a few years now so this review is long overdue. I went in yesterday for a general checkup and a long list of questions. He was so patient and thorough, answering all my questions and helping me with the issues presented to him. The staff is polite and professional. You never wait more than 5 minutes after your appointment and they are very thorough. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone looking for a PCP (they also have other doctors there so worth a look at their site).
I went on my lunch hour I got there before my scheduled appt. and I waited a very long time to be seen. What is the point of appointments if you will not be seen at your appt. hour?
Overall the visit was satisfactory. Dr. Bagner seems like a nice and knowledgable guy. He mentioned he works with professional athletes. I went in for a physical and the visit did seem rushed. I am in good shape physically, so he essentially told me I was okay based on his visual observation. It seemed like he skipped some pretty important parts of a physical (like checking for lumps.. etc.). He was nice in offering health advise but it was nothing that I couldn't look up on Google. I wished he was a little more thorough. He did consult me on a condition and give me information to bring to the specialist. I also received blood work. He was definitely a nice guy and assured me that I was welcome to come back and see him again if I still felt my problems were persisting. Maybe I'm in great shape and he is right! Again, it was a satisfactory visit. I'm sure I'll go back, but may be more vocal in my desire for a more more thorough screening.
Excellent experience. Doctor was informed and patiently explained the logic behind his recommendations. Whole visit was efficient and respectful. A+
Dr Bagner seemed very professional and took time asking questions and is a good listener.
Very brusque and did not address medical issues
Went in for a new patient visit and physical. As soon as Dr. Bagner walked into the office I knew I liked him. He was both professional and approachable. Took the time to listen which is something I can't say about all other docs I've been to. Definitely brings a personal touch to the job. Would highly recommend
Good bedside manners.
Dr. Bagner is the best, period.
He took his time to explain everything to me
I've been seeing Dr. Bagner as my PCP for over 7 years and every time it's a pleasure. He is patient and is attentive to my questions.
Dr. Bagner is very professional and has a pleasant bedside manner. I have been going to him for years and I would recommend him.
Dr. Bagner is a knowledgeable, responsive, and well-mannered general physician. I strongly recommend using him as a GP.
Dr. Bagner was very polite and informative. Nurses made me feel very welcome and comfortable.
pleasant even though not there to discuss pleasant things.
Very good communicator. Has extensive knowledge and very open to help
Everyone including the doctor was very helpful but I had to wait 1.25 hours before being seen, during my workday.
Very thorough in his explanations!
My experience at Doctor Bagner's office is very friendly and efficient. I enjoy returning to the office because of how great everyone is and i feel comfortable in the space, which is usually not the case for me when i go to the doctors. I am lucky to have found such a great practice,
I was late, so I had to wait while he took care of his ontime patients.
Waited more than an hour and office staff did not warn me that he was running behind. Appointments used to feel very thorough but past two have felt less personal and more rushed. Will likely start seeing someone else.
Good bedside manner. Efficient to the point but listens to all Qs
I was kept waiting for over an hour before I got to see the doctor. This was an anomaly, usually I'm seen within 10 to 15 minutes.
he takes time to listen, is pleasant and caring a wonderful Doctor!
He's the best - highly recommend him! :)
Dr Banger is very caring and professional. I highly recommend him as your primary care doctor!
Dr.Bagner is very thorough and answers all my questions. He's great
I always feel like I hit the jackpot with finding Dr. Bagner. He's a top-notch professional, I trust him implicitly, and he's friendly, helpful and patient...like t.v.'s Marcus Welby, M.D.
Great doctor, very responsive, and listens.
Genuine, caring and extremely thoughtful. Absolutely wonderful primary care physician!
He's the best!
Dr Bagner is an excellent provider and I'm delighted to have him as my primary care physician.
My visit with Dr. Bagger was great. He answered all of my questions and concerns that I had.
This was my very good first visit. Very good Doctor and staff.
Good man. Good doctor. Listens to and answers questions.
I went for a basic annual physical with bloodwork. It was a big plus that they did bloodwork in the office, as my previous primary care doctor required me to go to a separate lab a few blocks away, which was always a pain. Dr. Bagner was very nice and took the time to chat with me and go over my medical history, remind me to exercise, etc. I'm definitely planning on going back to him when any medical issues arise and for future checkups.
Dr. Bagner has a great sincerity in his bedside manner! He provides a great experience in a situation that most are not comfortable in(I mean who enjoys going to the Doctor!). I've been a patient of his for years and I can say he has always been very thorough in examinations. He asks questions as well as answers concerns. He will also call you back(within a reasonable amount of time) if you have to call him for any reason and if you need an RX his staff is pretty diligent on getting that done for you as well. Overall experience and service is 5 star for me!
Dr. Bagner is awesome. I live about 1.5 hrs away but I still travel into the city to see him because he is THAT good. It's worth the trip!
Seemed very rushed and dismissive of my symptoms.
He was professional and friendly. The receptionists were also friendly, which oddly enough is very rare.
Dr. Bagner is a really great doctor. He's caring, and listens to your concerns. I never feel rushed. My favorite thing about him is that he is not a pill pusher. He tries to fix your problems by making healthy changes in diet and adding exercise, before he will prescribe anything.
He did an excellent job helping me with both of my ears. The right equipment, and the expertise. I do have severe knee pain and could use a prescription for this pain--it is hard to walk, climb onto the bus, and rise from a chair. This is the only 'issue' I have with the good doctor.:0)
Dr. Bagner is wonderful. He looks, listens, and thoughtfully works with you( the patient) to come up with a plan that makes sense. I particularly like that he is open to trying new protocols to see if they help and will switch them as necessary without making the patient feel at fault. I am very happy to have found him.
The intern and nurse who took care of me were very kind, friendly, and helpful.
It was a pleasant visit. The recepsionist was very friendly and pleasant. Dr.Bagner was nice and professional. I would like to recommend him as your General Practioner.
Very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. Overall great experience, great doctor.
I don't like going to Drs.' offices. It was imprinted at an early age that Drs.' offices were negative places, but Dr. Bagner's office is a friendly space with nurse Tulsa and nurse Gersan!
Everything was fine.
Easy, quick. Referrals needed were given. Polite and affable fellow.
The ability to check in online saved me a lot of time filling out paperwork. The location was convient and I was seen within 10 minutes of checking in. Once the nurse saw me I waited less then 5 minutes for the doctor to come. Overall felt very comfortable and informed.
Excellent check up. Quick paced, but informative.
Dr Bagner is very professional, he takes his time to listen and find the best solution to my health concerns. Excellent doctor!
Dr. Bagner has been my Dr. many years. He is a caring Doctor and really understands my needs as a patient. I highly recommend Dr. Banger to anyone who is looking for a good Doctor.
Dr. Bagner is an excellent doctor. He takes the time to really listen to you and explain things. I no longer live near his office and make the trip in just to see him
Very detailed. Not rushed. Easy to talk to. Very knowledgeable. Staff is very nice, friendly and welcoming.
Dr. Bagner takes the time to listen to your concerns and address them in a very clear way. A true professional.
It was a visit for a physical and I don't feel that the exam/exploration of my issue was adequate. I was expecting to be referred to a specialist for one of the issues that I had and I wasn't. There were other issues that I will not discussed since I would like to discuss with him on my next visit to determine if this relationship will work.
Dr. Bagner has always helped me. He monitors my dosages and is prompt handling refills. He always answers my questions.
I've been a patient for 7 years now. Dr. Bagner is great.
Dr. Bagner is a professional who will take his time with you to deliver the right treatment. I have been a patient for years, and I have been very satisfied with his expertise, and with the office staff and nurses. I highly reccomend this office.
Dr. Bagner has been my primary care physician for years. He is always super friendly and helpful.
Dr.Bagner is great but the wait time is awful!! You can get here 20 mins early and they still won't call you!! Ironically if your late they some how give ur appointment up even though they probably wouldn't of called your name yet.. Great doctor poor operating skills!
He is excellent doctor
It was great. Staff at the front desk was super nice and there was no wait time. The doctor was friendly, listened to what I had to say and made sure I understood all the instructions and procedures. Will definitely keep him as my doctor.
Really personable. Quick response to electronic communication.soething I was never able to do with other doctors. Highly recommend.
Seems very knowledgeable; able to quickly assess possible problems/solutions.
Dr.Bagner is a great doctor who listens to you and is not in a rush to see the next patient.
It was excellent, he was very nice and attentive to my needs
i absolutely my doctor ive been seeing him for about 7 years now, I try to switch doctors once because i relocated and immediately came back....sure there are day you have to wait to get in but thats how it is for great service
He is great and understanding and very kind.
He is so thorough and listens to me. That's exactly what I want in a primary physician.
Smart, capable, no nonsense doctor.
He's the best! Thorough, thoughtful, kind, and happy to explain and discuss things.
Dr. Bagner is an outstanding physician. His bedside manner is only matched by his ability to answer any medical patient questions in a clear and concise manner.
Good doctor, no complaints
It was very quick--just the way I wanted it since it was simply a follow-up and I was taking time out of my workday to go for a vitamin shot.
Dr. Bagner is the best!
Dr. Bagner is very insightful and takes the time to understand your concerns and what you need. He'll give you options and work with you. He's in high demand so the only downside is sometimes having to wait a couple of weeks to see him.
He was very friendly and seem to care about my concerns. He listened and I felt as if I had been seeing him for years.
Once again, I'm so impressed with the office. Dr. Bagner is kind, patient, and knowledgeable. He is definitely my new PCP.
Professional and gives good answers to questions. Pragmatic and not alarmist. Uses science vs gut feeling on recommendations. Definitely a pleasant experience for an annual physical.
What a great doctor! I was very comfortable talking with him and left feeling well taken care of. Thank you!
He was very warm, caring and took his time explaining and asking questions. I was pleased with his plan and look forward to my next visit in a few weeks
I really enjoyed my visit with Dr. Bagner. wonderful bedside manner, he asked alot of questions
No complaints. I'm not one to complain about anything. Everything went well. Good job from everyone from the front desk to all the people in the back. Nice job Ellen.
Dr. Bagner is great. However, I needed to wait 15 min after I checked in at the front desk ( have visited there three times), and needed to wait another 15 min after I checked in with the assistant.
As always good. My 3rd time now and he is my go to guy.
Dr. Bagner is one of the best doctors I've ever been to. He's not only knowledgable, but he's also approachable and able to explain things in a way that's easy to understand as a patient. 10/10.
He is the best primary care physician I have ever had. I know when I go to that office I will wait a bit, but I don't mind. The reason I bring it up is because of being asked above about my wait time. I don't want my doctor to feel rushed. I don't mind waiting because I know when he comes in to see me, I am getting that same attention. He is extremely attentive and caring and understanding. You really get the sense that this man loves what he does and loves helping people. It's a breath of fresh air in the non emotional, rushed, cold city we live in. Go Dr. B!!
The patient flow at Dr. Bagner's office was generally pretty slow. I was called in at 10:45 for a 10 am appointment, the nurse took my blood pressure and then left me for another 15 minutes before Dr. Bagner came in. He was kind and friendly, albeit a little chummy for my taste (maybe I'm just unfriendly, haha). He was informative and asked the general questions before leaving to send in the lab technician to do my blood work. I waited for her for another 10-15 minutes. Over all, what should have been a quick and easy routine appointment took an hour and a half (for about 20 minutes of real face-time). Dr. Bagner was nice and I trust his professionalism, but they should look to improve their efficiency.
Was not taken back for over an hour after my appointment time. Waited another twenty minutes for the doctor then. Heard someone else in the waiting room get told to come back in an hour. Not at all convenient for a lunch time appointment.
Excellent manner, listened to what I had to say, was not an alarmist, scheduled appropriate tests, very confident to deal with him.
He has a good bedside manner. He asks questions and listens well.
Dr Bagner understand my needs and issues in relation to my health.
Love him. He's kind and empathetic while maintaining a strong professional air.
Very helpful, very knowledgeable.
Excellent care from a very professional physician. I am very comfortable asking any questions and getting an experienced qualified answer from Dr. Bagner.
Dr. Bagner is the best!
He's very caring, very friendly and very thorough. A total professional and extremely knowledgable in so many areas. I feel very lucky to have found him. He's a younger real-life version of t.v.'s "Marcus Welby, MD"...a genuine neighborhood doctor. Today's visit was my annual physical, and Dr. Bagner covered everything under the sun! Thank you!
Dr. Bagner is great! Easy to talk to and when he answers questions you know he cares. He also is very knowledgable about insurance which is a great bonus!
Great doctor! He really listened to my problems. The staff was very friendly.
Dr Bagner was efficient yet thorough with his diagnosis. He recommends working from home since I was diagnosed with strep throat but said I should be getting better after 24 hours of antibiotics.
Very attentive and welcoming!
I'm an educated buyer, but Dr. Bagner helped me understand several issues in a new way, things that other doctors never mentioned. Highly recommend.
Dr. Bagner addressed all my little concerns in my physical. He was patient and was positive about the strides I'd made in regards to weight loss.
He's a very nice, competent doctor who is thorough with his diagnosis and treatment. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Bagner is a great doctor. He always has time to listen to you. He is always up on the latest research. You can be sure that you are in good hands with him.
Dr. Bagner is incredibly approachable and easy to talk to. He's also very upfront and honest, which is much appreciated. I recommend him to everyone.
As always, my appointment was thorough and informative.
Very personable and smart. Works well with hypochondriacs like me.
It was ok, pretty much what I expect from a general practitioner. Felt like I left w/ more questions than answers though, which was annoying. Dr. seemed to be rushed and just going through the motions. Hadn't been to a general doc in over a decade, so guess I expected a little more. But, pretty much confirmed my suspicions that Drs don't try to keep people healthy. They just like treating those who are already sick.
Everything is fine but the waiting (30 mins) is frustrating.
Excellent, as usual.
Dr. Wagner was an excellent doctor. He took the time to listen to my concerns and his staff was very friendly and professional.
Dr. Bagner was thorough without being tedious and very personable. Even though it was my first visit I felt comfortable with him immediately.
Dr. Bagner is an excellent primary care physician. He is very receptive to patient input, and knows his patients. For example, he told me my heart murmur is louder than it was previously. I haven't seen him all year, so this is someone who pays attention.
He is a wonderful doctor.
Dr. Bagner is an excellent doctor that is open to questions and always provides a comfortable atmosphere.
He's been my PCP for over 7 years. The nicest person and listens to you! He actually cares about his patients. Great guy.
Sat in the waiting room too long (+30 minutes) for roughly 3 minutes of the doctors attention. Lame ratio.
It took me about 3 weeks to get an appointment for a physical. Overall, I was quite impressed with Dr. Bagner. I waited about 20 minutes to be seen, but he spent at least 20-25 minutes with me. He is well read with the latest trials and research and is quite familiar with non-prescription supplements. I feel my questions were answered and I received a thorough check-up.
Excellent as last time. He is super sweet and knowledgeable.
Dr Bagner has always been excellent in my opinion. Great bedside manner and you always feel as if he cares about you and your issues.
Bagner's the man. Everything a doc should be. Decent humor too! :)
MORE INTER ACTION WHIT PATION
Hes a little chatty but overall great!!! Definitely will be coming back :)
Really great doctor! Very professional and pleasant bed side manner. Dr Bagner addressed all my concerns and made me feel comfortable.
This was my first time visiting Dr. Bagner. I waited for about 15 minutes before I was called into the room. Dr. Bagner was very nice and thorough. He had a medical student in the room (he asked me before he brought him in and I said it was ok) and though he explained a few things to him as he went along, he kept his attention on me. It was just a checkup but I had a good experience there.
I was very pleased with Dr. Bagner. I was very early for my appt. because my fiance had an appt. before me. They actually saw me early! I felt very comfortable with Dr. Bagner, and I really enjoyed his nurse practitioners! The whole experience was as enjoyable as a Dr. visit can be. I think I have found my primary doctor, and that is a relief.
I was very impressed with Dr. Bagner's efficiency, competency and amicable demeanor. I highly recommend him.
I don't understand how I ended up with 2 ZocDoc files. This messed up the appointment entirely and needs to be fixed. Really messed Dr. Bagner's rhythm up big time. I know websites can have their glitches. Please fix. Thank you.
He addressed all my concerns in a friendly, professional manner.
Dr. Bagner came highly recommended and did not disappoint. Not only was he easy to talk to, but he was thorough, knowledgeable, and willing to allay all of the concerns of a self-declared hypochondriac. His staff was also incredible helpful and friendly.
He's great in being willing to discuss the current medical research findings about the topic on hand.
So nice to have a doctor I like & can talk to.
Great as always
He was great, he listened to my health concerns and suggested helpful tips.
Very nice and personable. I just went in for a checkup/physical, which I haven't had in years. I was kind of worried he was going to find all kinds of stuff wrong with me but I'm pretty healthy. Anyway, overall a good visit, I might have to start doing it regularly!
Dr Bagner is not only very thorough, he also does a great job explaining everything to you thoroughly and in simple terms so you understand it. Never seems rushed and always makes you feel like you're his priority, so I would highly recommend.
Great guy...extremely smart!
It was a very nice experience. He seems like a very good doctor and I'm happy with my choice.
Dr. Bagner is the best. A good listener, well organized, on top of all the latest medications, open to trying new options and truly a Doctor who strives to find solutions. I think he is top notch.
Got a physical. On time and to the point. Gave some good advice for general health.
Thorough, listens. :-) I am glad he's my doctor.
Always a pleasure to see Dr. Bagner. When I ask a question, he always treats my questions as relevant. I've been with him a few years
I am really happy of my visit with Dr. Bagner. He covered all my concerns.
Seemed very competent. Gave me info my specialist couldn't.
Awful I will not be returning. Awful office assistance.
Dr. Banger was very helpful in explaining the medication that he was prescribing, going through the side effects and outlining alternative medications and their pros and cons. He was very thorough and knowledgeable.
I have been seeing Dr. Bagner for over 6 years. Dr. Bagner is very knowledgeable, considerate, and objective. I highly recommend him.
... Very busy but takes the time to listen....
It was an easy and efficient visit. I came in for prescription refills and consultation, but needed to schedule a physical exam as well. He was able to order blood work for me and had the time to check me out and talk to me about some issues for my age and weight. Helped save me time as well as get me through the process for prescreening for upcoming procedure.
Great visit, happy to choose him as my pcp
As always, Dr Bagner was totally professional and made me feel very comfortable. I waited less than 5 minutes for the Dr. to see me.
He really takes the time to see how you are doing and makes you feel at ease. Very smart.
Yes, he is great doctor!
My visit with Dr. Bagner was great. He took the time to talk with me regarding any concern that I had and made me feel extremely comfortable. I always feel very at ease when I go to see him and would definitely recommend him.
Yes, I would use this doctor again. He was professional and through.
Very efficient and yet thorough and took the time to explain everything to me. Just what you need in NYC.
Yes I would.
I was seen as soon as I finished my paperwork. Although it was just a routine check up, Dr. Bagner was easy to speak with and clear in his communication. I will be likely visiting him again for my next check up.
Dr. Bagner was running late the day of my appointment and therefore I waited 45 minutes before I was seen by him. The actual appointment was fine. My exam only required regular blood work to be drawn for my annual physical.
Dr. Bagner is fantastic - he seemed a little rushed when he first came in, but warmed up a bit and has a great bedside manner. Thorough explanations, good use (and not over use) of humor, and very personable. A nice guy and a great doctor - I definitely recommend him!
Dr. Bagner is wonderful. Very professional and he genuingly cares for his patients
A pleasure as always.
I have been a patient of Dr Bagner for a few years now. He is an excellent physician. He has diagnosed multiple issues I've come in with quickly and accurately. He is personable and listens to what is really bothering you.
I dislike going to doctors, but Dr. Bagner is very personable and clear, quite easy to discuss my medical life with.
I don't go to the Dr often but Dr Banner is great. Very down to earth, friendly, and efficient. He will always listen to your own "self-diagnosis" and tell you if you're right.
Didn't address my needs at all, even when I specifically asked about a treatment, he completely ignored it.
After using the same family doctor for many years and experiencing a lot of frustration, I decided it was time to change my primary doctor. I'm glad I found Dr. Bagner on ZocDoc. He was extremely thorough and professional and I was out of his offices in 30 minutes for an annual physical. Highly recommended.
Dr Bagner is always a pleasure to visit
Dr. Bagner had a good bedside manner. He was friendly, but direct. Gave me tips about getting more healthy while also being really detailed when explaining some problems I was having. Was my first time in the office, so my long wait was to be expected. I'm glad I found him, and will definitely be going to him as my primary care Dr. in the future.
I have been going to Dr. Bagner for 7 years now - he is great. He spends time with you, does not rush you out, and answers your questions thoughtfully. Because of the time he spends with each patient, you should be prepared to wait 30-45 minutes when you visit. It is worth it.
Great doctor, sometimes longer wait than I'd like. Never leave upset though, he's fantastic.
Dr. Bagner had helpful suggestions and listened well. I will definitely be returning.
Dr. Bagner is a caring physician. He takes time to talk and get to know you.
Pleasant as always.
Spent time with me. Thoughtful and caring.
It was exactly what I expected. Very courteous and polite! The office are is very clean and nice. Dr Bagner was easy to talk to and answered any questions I had. Definitely a great find on my part and future office visits for the long term.
I love Dr. Bagner, and I've been seeing him for years. But unless you get the first appointment of the day, bring something to keep you occupied. The only reason my wait wasn't more than an hour is because two people ahead of me in line, who had already been waiting upwards of an hour, rescheduled their appointments. I don't fault Dr. Bagner for this, and once I'm inside the exam room, I appreciate the time he takes to listen to any issues I have, but the wait times are absurd.
Dr. Bagner was prompt and professional, and was able to answer my questions. He was also considerate and asked whether or not I wanted to receive an immunization because I'd have to pay out-of-pocket, which shows me that he cares about keeping his services low-cost if possible. i had to wait for my appointment to start for about 50 minutes, but this was because of confusion with my insurance and not specifically an issue with the office.
Great doctor nice office great service
He's very professional and detailed.
Dr. Bagner is great because you don't feel rushed. I feel like he was very thorough and always friendly. I've gone to him a few times and will continue to :)
Important to make sure people are who they are before moving on. I thought I heard my name only to find out that I was not the person called.
I've been going to Dr. Bagner since I moved to NY 7 years ago. He's such a great, caring physician. He is very patient and will explain in detail any questions you may have. He truly loves his job and a kind person! One of the best doctors in NY.
Dr. Bagner is not only concerned about your physical health, he is concerned about your mental health as well.
It is always a pleasure meeting with Dr. Bagner. He's very reassuring and detailed. He inquires about any concerns I may have and gives a few different suggestion to how they may benefit me specifically. I highly recommend Dr. Bagner!
Very thorough. I never feel rushed.
He is knowledgeable, patient, very responsive and overall attentive and caring. I'm very happy with Dr. Bagner.
Dr. Bagner is very rational and scientific; he gives great explanations. I like that he doesn't suggest useless tests when what he sees indicates that they aren't necessary.
My highest recommendations! Dr. Bagner is an excellent physician who is extremely helpful, friendly and takes great care with his patients. A+
Great doctor that honestly cares about his patients.
Dr. Bagner is an excellent physician in every respect. I would recommend him unreservedly.
Dr Bagner appears to be a very competent doctor, and he is all ways up on the latest research. I would recommend him with out reservation.
Dr. Bagner is extraordinarily personable and is just a breath of fresh air. He's also outstandingly smart, but able to explain medical things in plain english. I'm very fortunate to have him as my doctor!
Great visit. He is very thorough and knowledgable. I highly recommend!
Very helpful, down to earth, communicative and non-judgmental. Great visit.
Great doc. Intelligent, caring, well-informed and patient. Really takes his time to review your history and answer any and all questions you may have.
Dr. Bagner was very knowledgeable, very friendly, and very generous with his time. I would recommend him in the strongest terms.
Good doctor. I went for my annual checkup and didn't really have anything wrong with me other some minor things that Dr. Bagner provided helpful tips on how to manage them. Office staff was professional, < 15 min wait time.
A fantastic guy, great bedside manner
Very personable. Took time to explain things. I've already recommended him to family members. Happy to have him as my PCP.
Dr Bagner is smart: competent and caring. I would strongly recommend him.
When I made the appointment through zocdoc I filled out some of the symptoms I have been having lately. But apparently that information wasn't made available to the doctor. Personally I was concerned about leaving private medical information in a web application form. But if were to do so, make sure it is only used by the doctor. I my case it was a waste of time because the doc was not aware of this info and I had to repeat eveeything during the visit.
Great, as always! Dr. Bagner has been such a great find in my life. I'm always really happy with him!
Everything was great. Just had to wait a decent amount of time (45 min).
Dr. Bagner is terrific. I highly recommend him.
He is absolutely wonderful in any way a Dr. can be!!!!!
Dr. Bagner is always pleasant and a great listener. I highly recommend Dr. Bagner.
Incredibly professional, knowledgable and cares about his patients. Dr. Bagner was recommended to me and I feel it's only fitting i do the same.
Finally a great impression on the 1st visit! He was patient and kind and actually took the time to listen to my many concerns.
It took me forever to find a physician in NYC and Dr. Bagner was worth the hunt. Fantastic, thorough, great "bedside" manner and follows up.
Dr. Bagner is amazing. If he were to leave the practice, I would follow him
Michael had a great attitude and was extremely helpful on my first visit. I was very pleased with how professional and understanding he seemed to be.
Was excellent, he was very patient and answered all my questions.
Dr. Bagner is wonderful! A truly knowledgeable and compassionate caregiver, he listens attentively and then clearly articulates his thinking and the course of action to be taken. He made me comfortable and confident that he is there to help me tackle the problem at hand. He was recommended to me by a good friend and I have since recommended him to family and friends and will continue to do so!
Great service as always. Happy with my primary doctor. thanks.
Dr.Bagner is very honest and insightful. I found the information that he gave me to be very useful to my well being. He gave me great tips on how to have a healthier life style. He was very polite, friendly and informed.
He is excellent.
I saw him last about 3 years ago and I remember him being a bit more personable and interested.
Dr. Bagner continues to impress: knowledgeable, warm manner, and willingness to spend time explaining any issues I have. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
Great! Thoughtfully thorough in his approach from diagnosis to treatment. His pleasant personality puts you at ease. I highly recommend Dr. Bagner and his staff.
Receptionists were very kind, but waiting time was long.
great doctor love him
I occassionally have to wait more than 30 minutes to see him, but he spends a lot of time going over any issues or concerns in detail. He may be incredibly busy, but he genuinely cares about finding the right treatment or habits for his patients' health. I also find it wonderful that he knows what drugs cost and wants everything to be as affordable as possible without sacrificing quality.
Great, no complaints. He was attentive, engaging and had a sense of humor. I would recommend him to others.
He's thorough and caring.
Very satisfying and reassuring that I was in great hands.
My experience with the nurse practitioner and Dr. Bagner were both really great. They answered my questions and were patient. The only thing I did not like was the wait time. I got there 30 minutes early for my appointment, waited 1 1/2 hours just to see a nurse and then waited 15 more minutes after the nurse just to see the doctor. The whole experience took much longer than it had to and it's not the first time I've had to wait that long there.
Thorough and informative.
Doctor was attentive and interested in making me well. I thought he was thorough and had the abiltiy to detect any health trends from my previous appointments that were overlooked by my previous physician.
Dr. Bagner is able to see you about your issues, but doesn't hasn't too much time to get to know you our your medical history better. But you will be seen for the issue at hand.
I love Dr. Bagner! He's seriously the best. Great visit, as always.
Good visit as always. Just wish he had more time to explain things before moving to the next patient.
He is very thorough and I feel like he really listens. He also comes off like a real person that you can talk to. I've gone to him twice and both times had great experiences :)
Compassionate, understanding and quick.
Dr. Bagner has excellent bedside manner. I just came in for an annual physical but he was extremely courteous and helpful in all of his instructions and in addressing my concerns. The office I went to looked a little dingy and not upgraded, but for my purposes it suited just fine.
The staff were very professional and helpful. Recommending coworkers to get their physicals checkup with Dr. Bagner. Very short wait time if you have your forms in order.
Really liked Dr. Bagner - I needed some immunizations for graduate school, and he took the time (even though it was late in the day and I was one of the last appointments) to talk through the pros and cons of each of the optional immunizations, as well as go through my medical history and any concerns I had. Would highly recommend going (but do schedule early in the day - they were running about 20 minutes or so behind and since I was 15 minutes early to fill out forms, it was a bit of a wait)
Dr. Bagner was friendly and engaged. I have recommended him to other individuals also looking for a doctor in New York.
I've only seen him once so far, but Dr. Bagner is easily the best primary care physician I have gone to. He's knowledgable, friendly, patient, and really listens. The staff at Roosevelt Hospital Doctors' Offices are also fantastic.
Fantastic doctor. Smart, great bedside manner, and quick/efficient. Highly recommended.
Good thorough check up. Good bedside manner.
great general physician choice
Dr. Bagner was very nice. The appointment felt a bit rushed but I would definitely go back to Dr Bagner.
Dr. Bagner is very informative and caring. The experience is ideal for my needs, specifically if something is wrong he will take time to address the issue and if everything is okay it's a short visit. I typically see him once a year.
He came highly recommended from my GYN and he's straight forward and knows his stuff.
Wait was long but otherwise a great visit. He is great answering any health questions you may have. I was also very happy with how fast my test results came back. They were conveyed in an excellent manner so there was no doubt what the results were and what the next steps should be.
I love Dr. Bagner. Both my sister and I have been going to him for years now. We are so glad we found him. We really listens to our needs and never seems in a hurry. So glad he's now on ZocDoc, but hope too many people don't discover him because we want him to ourselves! ;-)
Dr. Bagner was great, although it seemed he had a lot of patients to attend to and was a bit rushed. Everything else was great, nice office and staff were friendly.
It's a doctor visit, not Disneyland, what sort of expectations am I supposed to have?
I love Dr. Bagner, he's great!
Dr. Bagner was one the best docs I've ever been too. I went for a general consultation, full physical, and to address a recent medical issue. I was also looking to switch GP's and within 3 minutes I knew I would be returning. He spent over 45 minutes with me, discussing my medical history and took care to explain what he was going to treat me with and why one method over another. He has the proper medical knowledge about everything we discussed and had a real solution for each issue, with possible alternatives as well. He diagnoses to solve the problem, not the symptoms and was extremely easy to talk to. Highly recommended. Office staff was friendly, professional, and helpful as well.
Dr. Bagner was personable, patient, knowledgeable and took the time to address all of my questions and concerns. He immediately made me feel comfortable. I would absolutely recommend him to friends.
Pretty good first time visit. It was a basic physical, so not much to say. The office itself was a little busy, but overall good experience.
Dr Bagner had a professional and unrushed manner. I immediately decided to make him my regular doctor.
He was wonderful. Explained symptons and medications. Didn't feel like he was rushing.
Dr Bagner was very friendly and made me feel very comfortable. He took his time to discuss any issues I had but was also very efficient.
Great doctor. I'd highly recommend him!
Dr. Bagner was efficient and professional. He had a disarming quality while remaining focused and direct.
Dr. Bagner is a wonderful doctor, I can only say great things about him! He has a fantastic bedside manner and easily understood when answering questions. I have never left his office wanting to get a second opinion, which I feel is the most important quality with a doctor’s visit. Dr. Bagner also takes the time out to listen and is extremely pro-active and quick thinking with sick visits or any issues that come up. He also calls back quickly with any concerns. There is a reason why he has a patients choice award, more doctors should follow in his footsteps! I highly recommend him!!
