Verified Patient Reviews
I have been to see Dr. Eng previously and he is such a good and thorough Dr. He takes his time and explains everything to you. I appreciate his work ethic and will continue to use and refer others to him as well
He's probably the most through doc I've interacted with in NY. His bedside manner is textbook.
Dr. Eng was very friendly and professional. He knew what he was talking about and was to the point. I would definitely recommend him.
A tru professional, the staff were timely & respectful, l visited at a satellite location but it was maintained,. I would recommend this doctor & his staff for sure,..
Nice person, efficient and thorough.
Overall, Dr.Eng is great. I've been seeing gastro's since I was very young and he's so far the only one who seems to have a real interest in covering all bases and figuring out a plan from there. He's very friendly, thorough, and so far so good. My only hesitation on if I would recommend people is the office staff. There's quite a few people at the front desk, but only one is for him. They are usually never there and someone else has to go looking for them. I've also called a few times to get a follow up or for results and it goes to voicemail. No voicemail I've ever left has resulted in a return call. It's really a shame because he's cool and the office is nice.
I am very happy with my visits and treatment by Dr. Eng. I was seeing another Gastro who was not as attentive and did not provide me proper diagnosis or treatment. Dr. Eng did very little talking other than to ask me questions our first meeting and he listened very intently to everything I said. He changed my treatment and ordered some tests to make sure we were doing the right thing. His bedside manner is calm and friendly and professional. I would 100% recommend him and his staff.
Office staff was prompt, I was taken on time. Dr. Eng was very friendly, explained what my upcoming procedure would entail. His directions were clear & concise.
Dr Eng is kind and knowledgeable. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
He is the best!
Dr. Eng was very professional and treated me with the utmost respect. I would definitely recommend him to my friends.
great bedside manner. took the time to listen to my questions and come up with a plan to diagnose.
Staff was efficient and polite. Office was clean, modern and well appointee
Professional, informative, to the point, and resourceful.
I felt comfortable that Dr. Eng was extremely knowledgeable and that he had my best interest at heart. He also provided insights beyond the scope of my initial visit reason, which I appreciated. Very Convenient office located off of the 23rd street 6 train. The office staff was friendly and I did not have to wait that long for my appointment.
Great personality. Very thorough-
The doctor himself was excellent...knowledgeable, caring, responsive, and open to all questions. The office staff, however, while efficient, was almost too much so...a bit brusque and rushed, lacking in personality or warmth...more important when the reasons for visiting a gastro are often quite personal and unsettling.
Dr Eng is excellent however the office staff timeliness and service is not good. For this reason unfortunately overall experience is not ideal.
Second time seeing Dr. eng he is so personable and through, precessional and very knowledgeable.
Michael was super courteous and really nice. I loved how he took the time to explain the entire process and was reassuring at the same time.
My visit with Dr. Eng's office was among the most pleasant I've ever had with a medical professional. The office staff was abundantly helpful, patient, and expedient. Dr. Eng himself was warm and made it clear that my problems were also his own. He had an answer for everything and never once made me feel uncomfortable with questions (something I've found to be rare among the NYC doctors...). I felt I was given more than enough time to cover all my issues and never felt rushed throughout the process. Everyone involved was very informative, went out of their way to provide resources for me, and gave me ample confidence that I was in the right hands. Although I certainly don't look forward to being ill, I do feel at ease to know I'll be coming back to Dr. Eng and his team with my health concerns.
Dr. Eng took the time to answer all of my questions (and I had a lot of them). Dr. Eng personally followed up on the phone after all procedures. The staff at his practice are knowledgeable, friendly and caring. I highly recommend Dr. Eng and his office.
The doctor and his crew were very nice and helped me to do everything I could do in one visit due to the fact that I have a baby and it's not easy to come with her. The doctor explained everything and was very nice to me. He made me feel that I'm in good hands.
Dr. Eng was very informative. Mentioned multiple options for procedures and actually listened to what I had to say and responded with great answers. Really enjoyed my visit.
Great doctor. Just not worth waiting hours for. Appointment was at 9.30a and wasn't seen until 11a. Not the friendliest and most informative receptionists either - they are actually rather rude and unhelpful. Would advise elsewhere.
Dr. Eng actually cared about my issues and took (lots!) of time to hear my story. A very thorough, kind, personable doctor, I feel that I can trust my condition will be taken seriously by Dr. Eng through many avenues of exploration. This has not been the case with other doctors I've seen, so I was thrilled to find him.
He was lovely and warm. Very professional .
I am very happy being Dr. Eng's patient. He is through and has nice bedside manner.
I had seen Dr Eng in the past. I find him to be an excellent physician and of course made sure to contact him first when I needed treatment.
Dr. Eng is amazing. He takes his time and answers all your questions and is very cautious.
Dr. Eng was great, really nice and knows his stuff. His staff was super helpful and efficient. I had to go in 4 times, initial appointment, 2 procedures and a follow up (could have been done over the phone or email, just another copay from me). Only complaint was the wait, for one procedure I waited over an hour to get in - not fun when you're starving and sitting in a cold room with a robe on.
Dr. Eng is the best! He always takes his time listening and asking questions and it very thorough and cautious. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Michael was a very thoughtful, attentive doctor. Listened to symptoms and wrote a lot down, which is always a good sign. I found all the staff charming and informative.
Dr. Eng was very warm and engaged.
Dr. Eng is so patient and kind. He assessed my situation and explained my options and what we would be doing thouroughly. His staff is also so kind the nurse I had was so patient, im terrified of needles as was the anesthesiologist. I can't recommend him enough.
Dr. Eng was incredibly friendly and helpful. I felt reassured by the end of the visit and he provided a detailed plan for further tests and visits. I would recommend Dr. Eng to anyone seeking help from a Gastroenterologist.
Very thorough. Very personable. Willing to go the extra mile to help you. I felt very comfortable in an uncomfortable situation. His support staff were quite friendly as well.
The office was so professional and I was taken care of within the timely manner.
I really wanted to like Dr. Eng because he was pretty thorough, asking a lot of questions to get to the bottom of my stomach troubles, but I can only give him 3 stars because he just couldn't stop suggesting (in an oddly smug manner) that I was probably pregnant. This went on repeatedly for several appointments even after I got short tempered with him about it - he brought up pregnancy three times in one visit and when I made it very clear that I was not pregnant and knew it for a fact, he told me every female patient who had ever told him that was wrong and ended up being pregnant. It wasn't until my endoscopy showed that I had a bad case of gastritis (which perfectly matched my symptoms) that he FINALLY stopped telling me I was pregnant.
He is a great doctor who deals with care and sensitivity, yet very precise and thorough. You feel very comfortable with his advise.
The first time I saw him he was nice, but the second I saw him I waited over an hour. I understand Fridays he's backed up but it was a really long time and I'm not one to complain. Also, I asked questions after my procedure and he said I should make an appointment to come back for a 3rd time because I wouldn't remember....Excuse me? I could remember everything clearly and said I could write it it down in my phone. I was perfectly capable of getting up and remembering everything. He didn't really give me any good advice...just told me a few tiny things that I already knew that wasn't helpful. Also, both visits he forgot to write me a prescription to help with my pain. It really just seems like he wanted to move onto the next patient/wanted money$ for a next visit. I'll be going to a different doctor next time.... Also, I was told my insurance would be covering my bill and I received a "new" bill in the mail that does not state what these charges are. "AMYLASE" and "LIPASE". If you're going to charge people at least leave a short note/sentence as to what these things are....There's a TON OF SPACE ON THE PAPER.
Dr. Eng himself was compassionate and very professional during the examination. However his staff was very abrasive and difficult to work with. It is also hard to get a hold of them over the phone. Given that I would most likely be communicating with his staff to coordinate prescription refills, appointment dates and medical results, I will not be returning.
Great Dr. direct about treatment plan. Great dr referrals as well. The office was a little strange. If you want a super nice facility, this may not be your cup of tea.
Dr. Eng is wonderful. He was very professional and made me feel comfortable right away. I have now had 3 appointments with him, and will happily be booking more.
Dr. Eng is very knowledgeable and very sweet, made me feel very comfortable when going in for a consultation.
He was friendly and listened to my concerns. He was also very punctual. Great experience.
Dr. Eng and is staff are wonderful, highly recommend this office.
After being seen into the examination room I had to wait a little while before seeing the doctor, but this gave me time to think about what questions I wanted to ask. This turned out to be good planning because once he came in he moved very fast and I may not have been able to ask my questions if I didn't have them in mind already. To his credit he was amiable and professional while being brisk and casual throughout, and he did answer all my questions to my satisfaction. The assisting nurses were also friendly and professional, and I left feeling like I had been taken care of.
Very caring doctor. He took a lot of time to understand my problem and recommend a solution. The follow-up after the appointment has also been excellent.
Seemed money hungry. Reccomended alot of tests that HAD to be done by him, even though I lived out of state. Took forever to see me. Refused to accept tests conducted by other doctors for this particular problem. Apparently alot of people reviewing like being cash registers. I don't.
Dr Eng has a great bedside manner and made me feel comfortable discussing very uncomfortable topics - and generally very thoughtful and helpful during the visit. Will definitely schedule follow ups with him.
Helpful physician that explained things well
Great experience, professional, very knowledgeable.
Courteous staff. Efficient, clean, professional office. Doctor Eng highly competent, friendly, attentive, and good bedside manner.
Was very nervous and Dr. Eng made me feel very comfortable by answering my questions patiently and thoroughly. His attentive attitude helped lower the anxiety I had about my procedure. Definitely recommend Dr. Eng and his staff.
Dr. Eng has excellent bedside manner. Very kind and thorough.
The office was very clean and friendly. Dr. Eng was extremely professional and personable. Would highly recommend his office to others!
Friendly Doctor and Staff, clean facilities. Seemed to be more thorough that other GE's that i've seen
He has given me a plan of what we are going to do to see what is wrong and that has made me feel better.
I love Dr. Eng. He always takes the time to listen and asks questions. He's very cautious and helps you figure out what's wrong. I even sent a friend to him years ago and she loves him too. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Eng also doesn't take my insurance despite it being listed on ZocDoc, but tried to work with me to do as much as he could for as little cost to me as possible.
Dr. Eng took the time to listen to my whole story from start to finish. I didnt feel like he was rushing me. He gave me different treatment options to choose from and was happy to talk about each in detail. As a bonus, he hooked me up with a free sample that would have cost me alot of money to buy at the drug store.
Never offered alternatives or followed up on my pain issue. I had to call the office myself just to get my test results. Seeking homeopathic recourses as I was only told after biopsies that I had "a lot of inflammation" and then nothing else even though I have occasional sharp pain. Absolutely no follow up is disappointing.
He was awesome. Dr. Eng seemed to know my symptoms before I even finished my sentence. He was very informative and assured me we'd work towards a solution.
I am very happy to say that Dr. Eng was amazing. He listened to all my concerns and symptoms, took thorough notes and then gave me a plan to work on everything. Fast, but complete. Thank you!
Super helpful and really wanted to help me!
Dr Eng was very thorough in gathering prior history to help diagnose.
The doctor is GREAT but his admin staff is just okay.
Awesome doctor - knowledgable and easy to relate to. GREAT experience....!!
Great visit. Very engaging to nerdy and reason of visit as well as patient's medical concerns so as to provide sound medical feedback. Is patient and listens well. Provides informative feedback and next steps.
Dr. Eng was friendly during my brief (10 minutes) appointment but straight to the point and knowledgeable. The appointment felt rushed. I wanted to ask him a question but he was already out the door. I spent 35 minutes waiting for my appointment. During that time, there were forms (10+ pages) in addition to what I filled out on Zoc Doc Dr Eng's receptionist was unattentive and rude. The nurses on the other hand were very friendly.
Dr. Eng was very nice, and took the time to listen to my concerns. He seemed very eager to find an appropriate diagnosis and actively work with me to treat my condition. Dr. Eng seems to genuinely care and has excellent bedside manner. This was my first visit to this facility, and the wait time was a little long, but otherwise everything was very clean and nice, and the staff were very polite.
Dr. Eng seems like a great guy who truly cares. Highly recommend!
After colonoscopies, the debriefing should be done in from of the escort.
Professional. Focused. Needs to work on the waiting time.
Very professional and thorough. Felt very comfortable with him and good office atmosphere.
DR. Eng was knew what he was talking about. Described issues and he layed out all the options right away to determine the issue. However, I didn't like how fast he and his staff was to book a colonoscopy before any of the "easier" tests came back. I ended up cancelling that when one of the other tests proved positive.
Dr Eng was great, thorough and helpful. However, I waited a full hour and 10 min :(
Dr Eng listens to you and really explains things very well. I am still yet to do a procedure with him soon so I will be looking forward to see what is really going on. But with the service he had provided so far, I'd definitely recommend him
He is informative and very friendly. Dr. Eng answered all my questions and was very thorough!
Very personable Doctor with great bedside manner - he made sure I felt comfortable and answered all of my questions without making me feel rushed.
Dr. Eng is a pleasure to visit and has excellent bedside manner.
Very spacious and clean office with plenty of examination rooms, though space is shared with another doctor. Also conveniently includes an operating room for a colonoscopy, endoscopy, or other procedures if need be. Dr Eng is a great doctor with a wonderful personality! He is very knowledgable in gastroenterology and is willing to answer all questions. That is however, if you can find the time to ask them. One of the only problems I had was that he seemed to always be in a rush, possibly to fulfill his schedule. I personally prefer a doctor to be more personable and take some time to know a patient and his/her problems, especially when dealing with digestive & colon issues. Other than that I had a nice experience and would recommend him for any gastroenterology needs.
I had persistent stomach aches and came to Dr. Eng for help. He immediately recommended very serious tests for my stomach troubles. He also raised significant alarm bells around what the condition could be based on "cases he had seen recently". The tests would be time consuming and I decided not to continue. It turned out that with a healthy diet and reduction of stress, all went away. I am concerned with how quickly Dr. Eng jumped to serious conclusions and wanted to run procedures.
I have had to visit Dr. Michael Eng's office numerous times in the past two months and every time is better than the last. The office staff is very friendly, the nurses take you right away and are always a please and Dr. Eng is helpful, persistent in finding the correct diagnosis, and altogether a joy to work with. He stops at nothing to find the right answer to your symptoms and if he isn't 100% sure in his diagnosis, he does not hesitate to tell you to get a 2nd opinion. I would recommend Dr. Eng to anyone in need of a gastroenterologist.
Awesome bedside manner, very well-informed, a great overall experience ...!!!!
Couldn't have been better!
Dr Eng is incredibly compassionate and speaks to you like a human being. He listens to your concerns and cares. I ended up getting a life changing diagnosis and he was the 1st to consider it and test for it. I'm still being tested for other issues, but he made the process much less scary and do able. Highly recommend and easy to get into. The waiting room can feel a bit chaotic depending on when you go do to sharing the space with another office. Overall though they are great and convenient.
Excellent specialist. Dr. Eng is knowledgeable, and is able to adequately explain the situation unlike some doctors that tell you "not to worry about it". I would recommend him to close family and friends.
Dr. Eng is always friendly, helpful, and thorough. He goes the extra mile to get to the bottom of whatever is going on.
First time here. Very nice, clean office. Filled out paperwork and was called within about 5 minutes. MAs were friendly, Dr. Eng was in about 2 minutes later...very personable, great bedside. Was very knowledgeable, listened to all my complaints, made recommendations, explained, why and did a quick physical exam. Didn't feel rushed at all and I was in and out in 45 minutes, tops. Highly reccomeded!
Dr. Eng was so pleasant to work with! He made me feel comfortable and explained everything to me thoroughly.
Would like shorter wait times. This last one was an hour and 32 minutes. Office visit was maybe 10 minutes. My issue is something that takes a lot of trial and error and though it's hard to give direct advice I do wish there was a little more care. I just feel rushed and lost.
Great experience! He saw me promptly, had excellent bedside manner and was clear in explanation and advice. Highly recommended!
Brilliant, communicative, comprehensive. Perfect visit and procedure.
He was really thorough. He took his time and was very friend.
Great practice. Friendly and courteous staff.
Amazing he was the first GI doctor to finally want to figure out whats going on. He was attentive and thorough.
Friendly, understanding, and makes you feel comfortable even for a first time visit.
The wait time was my referring physician's fault, as my referral had not been sent as they said it would.
Dr. Eng made me feel as comfortable as possible given the circumstances of my visit. Wait time was minimal on appointment days but I did wait an hour to go into an endoscopy appointment. He was honest with me and didn't give any diagnoses until he could fully prove it, which can be hard for digestive woes. I would (and will) see Dr. Eng again.
Thorough and right to the point. He answered my questions and explained his recommendations.
Was very nice and easy to talk to. I felt very comfortable discussing my problem with him. Definitely the easiest doctor I've ever had.
We had one visit a year ago, and the wait was pretty long for an appointment at 830am. We scheduled an important follow-up meeting a month in advance and his office cancelled on us 2 days before. Not impressed.
Very friendly and thorough Doctor. Definitely would recommend him to friends and family.
Great doctor, explained everything without being condescending. Awesome bedside manner, even at 6 pm! Would certainly recommend to others.
Dr. Eng was friendly, patient, and eager to reassure me while explaining his diagnosis. He was thorough and immediately ordered tests to check out my condition and determine exactly what was going on. He was very proactive and helpful.
I was very impressed with the time he spent explaining everything to me and remaining patient with all my 100 questions. He is very knowledgeable and professional. The staff is great and friendly. Highly recommended.
Great Experience! Clean office, on time, well mannered staff, & fast appointments. I Couldn't ask for a better experience.
Seems like a decent guy, but really didn't appreciate being rushed in and out every time I saw him. It always seemed like I was supposed to feel lucky to get two minutes with him, and he always hurried me through any questions I had.
Quality provider. I'm not sure whether I needed to get all of the tests done that were recommended - but I know he was taking every precaution to ensure that I didn't have an ulcer or something more serious.
Would not recommend - billing department is sketchy was triple charged and took 3 months to get a refund of over half a grand.
Dr. Michael Eng was very friendly, inquired about my stomach issues and made some recommendations but ultimately could not provide any feedback without further testing. He was great and I would see him again. However, I arrived at 3:15 for my 3:30 appointment and was not seen until 4:25pm. In addition, the other tests that I need was to be scheduled at earliest two weeks after my visit, which I think is quite a lot time for an urgent issue. Their office doesn't seem to be as efficient or is overbooked.
Dr. Eng is the best! He is very empathetic, understanding, and provides great care. He asks great questions and actually listens to the answers.
Just another money-hungry city doctor. Upon first appointment, though I CLEARLY stated the daily oral medication I use has been extremely successful and I experience no pain or symptoms (my regularly-scheduled procedures have revealed it has been very effective in correcting the problem) he immediately suggested I try an additional supplement to go along with it, aka 'i'm getting sponsored by this pharmaceutical company to recommend this and push it upon patients who may not even need it." He proceeded to bring those up a total of FOUR times during the appointment. I did not go to med school, but I am pretty sure the saying 'don't try to fix something if it ain't broken' comes handy in all sorts of situation, medical ones included. Even if it is indeed a medicine I should consider adding to my diet according to whatever medical logic, I suggest he at least TRIES to hide the dollar sign in his eyes when talking to a patient. THERE ARE NO PRICING SPECIFICS, unless your definition of specifics is do not mention the word "dollar" in my review. I HAVE NOTHING TO EDIT, there are no prices listed.
I never leave reviews but had to leave feedback for Dr. Eng. I have been to many gastroenterologists and have never come across one as thorough and caring as Dr. Eng! He is patient, gives you complete details, and makes you feel comfortable. I highly recommend him!
Dr. Eng is fantastic. Not only was he calm, collected, polite, and friendly, he was very interested and investigative in my specific issue. I've had several appointments with him and they never fall short of amazing. His front desk and nurse support team are all great too. I highly, highly recommend him and his office.
Wait time was too long. Suggested that I see another gastroenterologist.
Love Dr. Eng, he is warm, listens, really knows what he is talking about. He will tell you exactly what you have, and won't BS you on what you really need to do to solve your problems.
Dr. Eng has an excellent bedside manner and he seemed genuinely interested in finding the root of the problem. He's very polite and friendly and made me feel comfortable during the examination.
Dr. Eng is incredibly helpful and really goes the extra mile. He made sure to test for anything that could be going on rather than just assuming everything else that I hadn't come in for was alright. Because of this, he was able to help me even more than I'd originally suspected by getting as much information on me as possible, both verbally and via testing. Dr. Eng is also decidedly not the type of doctor to discount research you might do on your own. Obviously, nobody should try to diagnose themselves via the internet, but we all look up our own symptoms. He will listen and let you know what sounds right, what sounds not so right, and why. He has such a great bedside manner overall, and his staff are incredible as well.
Him and his staff were very nice and professional. However, he would not do a colonoscopy and endoscopy at the same time. He wanted me to come in for two separate procedures even though I would be under for both. It is a very common thing to get these done at the same time. I can only assume this was because he would like the extra money for seeing me twice. Would not recommend going to him.
He made me so comfortable, even when discussing uncomfortable topics such as stomach issues. Was very accommodating when I became squeamish during a blood test. Walked me through every step of treatment and made me feel like I was in great hands. Would recommend to anyone who has never been to a gastroenterologist but wants to solve stomach issues.
Was very knowledgeable and comforting.
My first visit went well and I thought the doc and staff were attentive. However, after few appointments I felt like I was used to rack up a bill of various medical tests; once that was done, I was completely discarded.
Dr. Eng was professional and listened to me. He recommended I get a colonoscopy and removed polyps while I was under. Overall, I think he's a great doctor.
Dr is great, but waiting for 90 minutes for a consultation is a bit excessive. Personnel taking blood samples are not the friendliest ones.
Dr. Michael Eng is very personable. He will chat with you for a few minutes after the procedures even though he has other appointments. He will call if there is anything suspect and his staff will also call you pre and post to check in. He is also very thorough and intuitive. He was correct in predicting my diagnosis and sent me on tests to be sure.
Great doc, very energetic, explained everything in detail, raising appropriate amount of concern and awareness as the required. Very Courteous. Highly recommended.
For the uncomfortable nature this kind of practice can bring out in a person, the staff and Dr Eng were not just professional, but rather kind, considerate and warm. I'm so grateful to have found such a professional doctor, who made me feel like a person, not just a patient.
He was great! The office staff is also so sweet and understanding!
I love Dr. Eng, he is smart, takes the time to listen, puts you at ease even when delivering not so great news, and transparently answers your questions. Plus he always tries to lighten the mood which is always appreciated.
Overall a good experience but it seems Dr Eng runs a mini-hospital where you're just a tiny cog in the machine of tests. I got the impression he's very test-happy, more so than other docs. I'd rather him spend a few more minutes discussing other options and not rush into endoscopies, etc.
The office staff could be a bit friendlier. Dr. Eng was very thorough and helpful.
Dr. Eng is a fantastic doctor that really cares about his patients. His office is never over crowded like I've seen with a lot of NYC doctors that over book themselves and make their patients wait a really long time. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a good gastroenterologist
I think Dr. Eng is great. Extremely knowledgeable and also very kind, which makes it easy to talk to him and explain your problems. I have been going to him for years. Lately, though, the wait time has been awful, which is unfortunate when you ask a friend to pick you up from a procedure and the end time is 3 hrs delayed.
I don't know about Dr. Eng. I think he is relatively knowledgeable and professional, but I was also turned off by his lack of recommendations on how to treat my health. I went in with abdominal pain, he wasn't sure what it was so he lined up several texts, including a colonoscopy. The office couldn't give me a colonoscopy until A MONTH from my appt, and I had no idea how to manage the pain for a month while I was waiting. I asked him what I could do to alleviate the pain, and he said he didn't know because he didn't know what he was treating. Ok. When I started to feel better before I had my colonoscopy, I asked him if I should still go through with it. He wouldn't give me a straight answer. It was also a combination of his office and the place he recommended for my CAT scan that didn't really look out for me on cost. I ended up doing everything because I had "approval" from my insurance, but I didn't realize I would be paying a couple thousand (WTF) on my deductible. So I'm not sure if I would go back again.
Great doctor and very professional.
Though the reasons that bring me to Dr. Eng aren't the most pleasant, he makes the experience as relaxing and informative as possible. I recommend to Dr. Eng to anyone with digestive concerns.
Dr. Eng took my concerns seriously and seemed to know the medicinal information but seemed like he was in another world. I had a few appointments within a month and two procedures done within a week at his office. I went for a follow up for both procedures after the second one and discussed it. Then I said, "what about the first procedure" and he was like, "didn't we talk about that?". That answer was quite off-putting. After that I asked for prescription for some cream and he said "the over the counter stuff is fine", not remembering that he previously gave me that prescription after one of the procedures. I understand doctors are over booked and have loads of patients, but then take better notes and pause a second outside of the examining room to review those notes. Those two instances of him not quite knowing what was going on really soured my experience.
Very thorough and attentive. Answered a lot of my questions and truly put some thought into treatment and next steps. Nice to not be hurried through.
Very personable and didn't make me feel uncomfortable even when I wanted to climb under the table talking about certain issues. Was very clear in explaining possibilities of diagnoses and the steps he would be taking. I was overall very satisfied!
Dr. Eng is friendly and light hearted. I also think he is a thorough doctor. I would say it is difficult to get in contact with his staff or to leave a message for Dr. Eng. I called three separate times asking for an email of my appointment and didn't receive one (not scheduled through zocdoc).
Well considering he stuck his finger up my butt- great.
Very professional office very pleased with Dr. Eng..
Immediately recommended additional testing, seemed like he was chasing fees.
Smart, friendly, and super approachable, I immediately got a great vibe from Dr. Eng. He seems to really care and gets right down to business-- discussing treatment options and doing his exam. Highly recommended.
Dr. Eng was very thorough and did a great job of explaining what he was looking for and the why behind that. He did this all in a very easy to understand manner.
VERY PROFESSIONAL, AND LISTENED PATIENTLY TO FIGURE OUT A SOLUTION THAT BEST FITS MY NEEDS.
Concise, Professional - inspired confidence
He was extremely thorough and welcoming. I felt comfortable with him right away, and I look forward to continuing to use him.
It was such a pleasant visit. I was seen as soon as I was done with paperwork. Staff was very nice and dr Eng bed manner was excellent and thorough. Total visit time 45to 50min.
He is very nice, and really cares about what is going on. He made me feel very comfortable, and is taking every step to help resolve my issues.
great doctor, felt comfortable and confident with him and the office staff. I once had some concerns about a procedure and not only did he call my cell and answer my questions personally but he called me back a little later because he didn't feel he had covered it well enough and wanted to make sure that I fully understood and was comfortable. Extra effort like that goes a long way in my book :). Only concern is that when you call it can be hard to get someone on the phone and there was an incident where one of my appointments for surgery was delayed by almost 2 hours which was very frustrating. Hopefully was just a one time thing, otherwise a wonderful experience. I would definitely recommend him.
Very thorough and friendly.
Took my problems seriously. Calm, reassuring, and easy to work with. Office seems to run on time judging by my past few visits. Would definetly recommend.
The doctor was very nice and his staff was nice as well. He took his time with my 84 year old client which we appreciated.
He seemed nice but he was 50 minutes late.
I never leave feedbacks, but for Dr. Eng, I must. I had a great experience at his office today. He listens; he explains; and he is very attentive. Those can be a rare quality in medical professionals. He is also personable and pleasant. Highly recommended.
He's great, as usual. Very professional and thorough.
Awesome pleased comfortable safe.
He was polite and concerned for my well being. He really listened! I look forward to getting better with his advice.
Dr Eng is thorough and a very caring doctor.
A great, brilliant doctor who is kind and sympathetic. I've recommended to him to many of my friends.
He was honest, efficient, and thorough. I scheduled a colonoscopy with him for 4 weeks from now. The office staff is friendly and the gun is in the same office so it was very convenient.
Exellent doctor show concern about my health I felt comfortable
Dr. Eng was very pleasant and thorough. I would recommend him to anyone.
Could do without the wait time and irritable front desk staff. Fortunately Dr. Eng's fantastic bedside manner almost makes it worth the wait.... Not particularly but almost. Office is seemingly overbooked and staff seem to rush you along when their not dragging their feet of course. However dr. Eng does not exhibit such behavior, at least not to patients. He's very kind and attentive and genuinely focused on healing and diagnosis. If you're willing to the overlook the other nuances, you'll be in the care of a great doctor.
Very pleasant and educational.
Office staff was friendly and attentive. Not a long wait time. Dr. Eng was very professional and took the time to explain my procedure and answer any questions.
I was very satisfied with the experience with this doctor I would highly recommend him.
The nurses who took my blood didn't do it properly and as a result I was left with a bruise.
In addition to the delay, the forms I was asked to sign could have been improved.
This was my first visit with Dr. Eng and he made me feel very comfortable and at ease. I'm confident in his abilities and trust that he genuinely cares about figuring out my diagnosis. Highly recommend!
I think he's great. Super smart, not in a rush, caring, careful, follows up with you.
I was referenced to Dr. Eng by my PCP who suggested I have a specialist consultation re my gastro troubles. Admitting that I have an n of 1, I felt very rushed by Dr. Eng who rather than trying to discuss my symptoms / issues prescribed a battery of tests including a colonoscopy within 5 minutes of speaking with me. I got the distinct impression that I was a fee machine for him. Follow up has been poor as 6 weeks later I have yet to hear word from his office re results and next steps etc.
Really pleasant Dr. Knows what he is talking about and is very friendly. I am happy I found Dr. Eng who is now going to be my GI!
Overall, very positive, but he could have taken a little more time to explain when to take the medication he was prescribing.
He was very patient with questions and went out of his way to make sure I understood the diagnosis.
Such a nice doctor! Probably the nieces doctor I've visited in NY. Was very thorough and honest and really cared about my well-being, and he took his time with me, wasn't rushing me out the door. Highly recommend him!
He's the best! Patient, practical, and easy to talk to.
Great doctor , personable & a straight shooter!
Just wish his follow up was better. :D
Very thorough and created a very relaxed atmosphere. Also explained everything very well and answered all of my questions. I would highly recommend.
Very nice, patient & personable.
Really took his time. No rushing me out the door. I really felt like he wanted to get me well.
Dr. Eng is great! He is extremely personable and very knowledgeable. I felt very comfortable going to him.
Warm, courteous and reassuring of the profession ... Was helpful and answered all question to my satisfaction ...
Enough time to do my paperwork and then right away. Thorough, spent time to understand my case history. Very professional and easy to work with.
Very professional and friendly.
He was great, friendly, and super professional. Highly recommend him!
Dr. Eng is incredibly thorough! He is incredible. When talking to me he asked me to sit in a chair- eye to eye- as opposed to the examination table, really contributing to his already awesome self! I still have more appointments with him but I already feel comfortable and the medication he has prescribed has me feeling wonderful. I waited all of two minutes after filling out my forms to see him! Courteous front office- caring, attentive nurse
Very personable physician and well-run office.
Only my first visit but I felt completely comfortable with Dr Eng and his staff. Easy visit.
Great dr, correctly diagnosed a condition which was not obvious at all and it turned out to be a life saver (literally). Great staff, personable, professional.
Dr Eng was really nice but a little rushed. I had an afternoon appt and there were a lot of patients there so I can understand. The receptionist went out of her way to help out and was really friendly! Much appreciated.
Dr. Eng was very thoughtful and professional. I look forward to working with his office in the future.
It was one stop shopping. Everyone was very nice. I can most if not all of my tests done right on the premises. I was very happy with the service.
Before going to see him I was at another doctor's office, that I waited over an hour to be seen! When I came here, everyone from the front desk, to the nurse, to the doctor were super friendly, helpful, and attentive. I would definitely recommend.
Good doctor thorough and listens Staff is very nice
He brings his "A" Game every time.
The service was quick and efficient. Dr Eng was patient with me but also got right to the point about my treatment. Very thorough and clear.
Very straightforward and listened to the details of the other doctors.
Great visit, doctor saw me promptly and was very responsive to my needs
Wonderful service but the guy's super busy.
Always available, easy to talk to, and very good at explaining things. He's patient and takes thing seriously but isn't afraid of the humor his profession evokes. :D
Dr. Eng himself was excellent, but both times I visited the office I waited over an hour past my appointment time before I was seen. The first time they actually forgot that I was in the waiting room. I would recommend Dr. Eng, but beware of long wait times.
Very thorough and nice doctor!
Such a caring and thoughtful doctor. Carefully listens to everything you have to say and engages with you, asking you questions while answering your questions. Best of all, when I was leaving, Dr. Eng shook my hand and assured me that after all was said and done he would have a diagnosis for me and we would get me on a track to feel better.
Dr. Eng is Manhattan's best gastroenterologist. Strongly recommend for regular check-ups and/or procedures. Had an endoscopy done with him a few years ago - was easily to schedule, no waiting time, quick and easy, no pain after. I've gone back a few times for questions regarding gall bladder pain. He's very knowledgeable and thorough.
Michael Eng is great! He's calm, patient, and really makes you feel completely normal in a potentially uncomfortable situation.
very approachable and respectful
Dr. Eng has an incredibly professional bedside manner that makes you feel very comfortable in usually awkward and unpleasant situations. He has given me two great referrals and his office always returns calls and informs you of your results promptly.
I found him to be thorough and knowledgeable. After surfing zoc doc for a doctor I kept going back to Mr Eng
My visit was great...very quick and painless. He gave me great samples saving me a trip to the pharmacy and look forward to follow-ups in the future.
Dr. Eng is great! Highly recommend!
Dr. Eng was extremely helpful. He was able to schedule an endoscopy for me very quickly and made me feel secure through the procedure. He is willing to talk and help, not rushed.
I have been a patient of Dr. Eng's for years now and he and his staff has always been great!
Great Dr. who seemed very interested in helping get to the bottom of problems. Great listener, and incredibly thoughtful.
A Pleasure as Always! I have been seeing Dr Eng since 2008, I was referred from my PCP. He has a great bedside manner and will always be glad to answer any questions you have and get the matter of the GI issue you are having. I was suppose to switch my GI doctor for another hospital/doctors I am with in the city but you can't find a doctor like Dr Eng, he is a rare commodity in NYC!!
The doctor strongly exhibits both the desire and the knowledge/ability to help the patient. He does not rush the exam but rather listens carefully and answers all questions posed to him and works with the patient in designing a course of action. He inspires confidence in his ability.
After my appointment I found myself saying ''what a wonderful doctor' out loud. I found Dr. Eng to be kind, intelligent and very thorough, I really felt he went above and beyond.
All around a great doctor, staff, and office.
I thought the administrative staff was very helpful and nice, and Dr. Eng has a great calm manner and informative. Very engaging.
I'm very happy to have found him. He really took the time to sit and talk with me and get to know me a bit and to explain things. His demeanor was warm, friendly and professional and I left feeling very good about the entire experience. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.
Dr. Eng was extremely friendly, easy to talk to, and informative. I highly recommend him!
The doc's warm and friendly personality was greatly welcoming and calming. Explained things thoroughly.
Best doctors appointment I've ever had. Great doctor and staff. Very professional and patient. Takes his time with you and puts a lot of effort in trying to help. Seems to genuinely care about his patients. Will definitely be referring more people to him.
Very impressed. He was knowledgeable and able to explain the diagnosis in a simple and understandable manner. Very courteous and professional.
Dr Eng is incredibly knowledgeable and professional. He's a super nice guy, who genuinely wants to develop a plan to get you better ASAP. Super proactive and takes his time, So glad I found him!
Just another NYC doctor looking out for your money. He kept pushing me to get numerous expensive procedures that never solved my problem. Go to another doctor!
super nice, friendly, no nonsense.
He recommended I do many expensive exams and then told me that he thought my issue was GYN related and left it at that. Turns out it was a GI issue that I ended up having to figure out on my own.
Got the sense that he's just another typical NYC doctor taking advantage of patients. Came in for one problem and was treated for another, which was probably unnecessary and much more expensive than I had planned. Although he recommended another doctor for my actual problem, I couldn't get an appointment with him and my original problem remains unresolved.
Great doctor! One of the best visits I've had with any sort of physician in a while. He was efficient but he also took his time and went through all of my questions. I'm actually excited to have an endoscopy done with him, if that's at all possible?!
Note: The doctor was delayed due to an emergency and the staff kept us updated and let us go out and come back. This did not negatively impact our experience with Dr. Eng nor his staff. It is what is expected from time to time from a dedicated doctor.
Dr. Eng is thorough, patient and never rushes an appointment. He always explains everything well and goes through all the options. He even remembered me well from the last time I saw him a few years ago.
Worst staff ever
Very nice very personable and very smart. Also very quick to take action it seems. I had multiple references and an confident in his ability!
Dr. Eng is very professional, listened to all of my concerns, and is determined to get to the bottom of my problems. He is actually my "2nd opinion" and I truly wish he was the first Doctor I went to. I would recommend him to anyone!
He was very professional and came up with a thorough plan of action.
Very personable, acknowledges the concerns and needs of the patient, as well as the desire to get results quickly.
No follow up. Had to inquire several times to get results, etc.
I needed to see a doctor last minute and he was open late but the service was still good. Got right to business and though I have more tests to do I think I have found a gastroenterologist going forward!
Great insight and feedback
the only big delay was in finding my file--turned out it was under my maiden name; once that was done, I was in & out. Great staff, great doc! Remembered me from almost 3 years ago.
Made me feel very comfortable in a very uncomfortable situation. Very professional
He is the best! Super friendly and very knowledgable. He has helped me enormously with my stomach issues and always makes you feel at ease.
He made me feel comfortable about an uncomfortable situation and right away set me up with lots of testing. He seems motivated to figure out what's wrong as fast as possible.
Dr. Eng is great. He patiently explained my options. While I was there he conferred with the specialist that he had recommended me to and then patiently clarified that doctor's conclusions and answered all of my questions. Dr End is definitely my go to "Gastro Guy"...
Very professional reception staff who were very helpful in scheduling additional appointments. Dr. Eng was very thorough and clear in his explanations.
Dr. Michael Eng was great and very professional. Unfortunately, like many reviews here pointed out, his staffing is exactly the opposite. Forgotten followups, waiting days for call-backs and having to follow up multiple times were all part of my experience.
friendly and helpful staff. their was a technical issue with the zocdoc appt but they were able to accommodate. Doctor seemed good and dialed in. he prescribed a number of tests to have a closer look. overall, really good experience.
Pretty basic. Not for complex problems.
This was the 2nd worst experience I have ever had with a doctor and a doctor's office. Every single thing was absolutely terrible, from the wait, to the constant noise and commotion at the front desk, to the open discussion of patients' (3 different ones) information, to the doctor on his cell phone in the next room practically shouting for a full 20 minutes, to making me move to a different exam room which was exactly the same (maybe they wanted to distract me from the 90 minute wait), to the promises of faxes, prescriptions, and calls that were not kept (until I called a number of times, and still, each of these "promises" - 8 separate ones in all - had at least 2-day wait periods). The Doctor was distracted, asked me the same questions more than once, and although he was very nice and actually seemed to be knowledgeable, he was rather high strung, which made me more nervous. The woman who took my blood was very calming, but that only served to accentuate the incompetence, disorganization, and consequent frustration of this protracted experience (7 days for one complaint).
We actually were fit in on Wednesday before the scheduled appt, which was a huge relief for my family. He made his recommendations and we were on our way. Peace of mind, is as much a healer as any antibiotic! The staff was cordial, attentive and very accommodating. Thank you, Dr. Eng :)
Dr. Eng is Great. He is attentive, informed and worked to address my concerns about my health. He is a keeper for sure...
Professional and thorough. I would recommend him to others.
thorough, friendly, informative, with great bedside manner. personable. highly recommend.
Dr. Eng has a fantastic bedside manner and is extremely easy to talk to about embarrassing issues. I highly recommend him!
He is so personable, so professional, and very intensive and concise. He got right to the point, considered all potential possibilities of the issue at hand and quickly scheduled tests to find the resolution. He explained the matter at hand very thoroughly and in a way that was very easy to understand. He listened very well and I would recommend him to anyone. Very friendly!
Very professional and explanatory.
Doctor is very knowledgeable and I liked him during my visit however his behavior after I left the office proved that he completely doesn't care. I needed to schedule a procedure and his assistant was suppose to call me next day with available times. Noone called. I called myself and spoke to receptionist who promised me that someone will call and schedule the procedure however no one called back again. Then I called again and specifically asked for doctor to call me back but he never called. I am very disappointed! I wasted 3 weeks waiting for Dr Eng to schedule the procedure while he never bothered. I could have had all done long time ago with any other doctor. I want nothing to do with Dr Eng and would not recommend him to anyone. His behavior is unprofessional and shows he really doesn't care!
Professional, smart, willing to consider alternatives
The front desk staff I dealt with was great - but apparently this was his satelite office so not sure if this was a different person then some of the other's I've seen people complain about. Dr. Eng was very nice - took plenty of time to talk to me, didn't feel rushed at all.
He was great, very informative, amiable and attentive!
I liked Dr. Eng. I found the front desk very chaotic and his primary staffer was pleasant enough but seemed ratled and disracted in person as she did on the phone. Not a listener either
I really liked Dr. Eng (I'm a new patient) and thought he was easy to talk to. However, I did find his office staff to be rude and unfriendly.
Waiting for the results, but in the meantime, he was very professional, asked lot's of questions and made you feel comfortable as a patient.
We have a follow up appointment but so far all is great!
He was very professional and very personal at the same time. He knew what he was talking about (or so it seemed, he had an explanation for everything). I was surprised he had such a short wait time yet I wasn't rushed at all and he even asked at the end of my appt whether I had any questions for him!
Dr. Eng was very knowledgeable as well as approachable a person. He broke everything down to actual facts and then made a solid recommendation.
Dr. Eng was is smart and personable. All in all a very good experience.
He was a pleasure to deal with. He answered every question I had without rushing me out of the office.
this was the first time i saw Dr. Eng and he was great!! hes so friendly and really puts you at ease. you can see he knows what he is talking about and i am definitely going back. only waited like 15 minutes which is not bad at all. if your looking for a gastro doctor more downtown def see Dr. Eng!
Dr. Eng is very professional, very knowledgeable and caring. I have never felt rushed or unheard and he took the time to carefully explain everything to me.
I highly highly recommend Dr. Eng. Not only was he incredibly thorough and knowledgeable, he was attentive and friendly. I went to him for a second opinion and ended up making him my primary gastroenterologist.
Dr Eng is very professional and has a wonderful personality with a great sense of humor. He was very thorough, answered all my questions, and was very compassionate. I highly recommend him!
Dr Eng was extremely professional, quick and thorough. He sat down with me, asked questions and asked if I had any after examining me. I felt very comfortable with his practice and staff. Everyone was nice and place is very clean. Again, I can't get over how quickly I was seen. Great friendly practice! I have to follow up with him so hopefully this will be the beginning of a great dr/patient relationship.
I would highly, highly recommend Dr. Eng to my friends and family. He was warm, concerned, caring and had wonderful bedside manners. His office was professional, clean and pleasant.
Dr. Eng is really friendly and thorough. Even though my abdominal pains turned out to not be GI-related, this never would have been determined if Dr. Eng had not done an exhaustive number of tests. The nurses and staff are friendly and very efficient. I would definitely return to Dr. Eng with any future GI problems.
I love dr eng and the staff!! He's very knowledgeable and caring! I highly recommend.
Professional and courteous. Respectful of one's privacy (which is important in the line of work).
Great doctor. He listened and actually took the time to answer all my questions.
attentive & informative doctor. would definitely recommend to others
Dr. Eng is lovely and very professional. He has a dynamic bedside manner and really gets to the heart of your concerns. His nursing staff is professional and friendly. What is a concern, however, is the enormous wait time involved with the appointment. I arrived early to fill out paperwork and it took the front desk staff over an hour to process it and make a chart. Really? That long for a few papers to be placed into a file. They were very nice and courteous, but my suggestion is that you be prepared to wait because that is what you will do. That made the process frustrating for me so it's a toss up in terms of returning. I likely will, because I like Dr. Eng, but I could do without the ridiculous amount of time I spent sitting there. My appointment was at 2:30pm. I was not seen until after 4pm.
Dr. Eng knows his stuff, but is also easy to talk to and takes the time to explain to you what's going on. He and his staff are friendly and reassuring. I highly recommend him.
He is good and through however he is a little bit neurotic and sent me to the er and said he would make sure they treated me properly 9 hrs later I am still sitting there so I left against medical advice, went to see him the next day and you could tell he was not happy with me, regardless of the poor treatment I had, he made it seem like it was going to be easier because he called ahead, not the case
Dr. Eng was very knowledgable, professional and friendly. His office staff was also very helpful and kind.
Dr. Eng is truly an amazing doctor. He has taken care of all of my needs even the ones that I was not aware I had. Very professional, caring, and has a great sense of humor.
Michael Eng is truly professional! He really listens, cares, and is amazing at what he does... This was my first visit in and I was extremely impressed. A++!
Very thorough and wonderful bedside manners.Had two normally uncomfortable procedures done with him and they both went smoothly and pleasantly.I highly recommend him and gladly accepted his apology for running behind.
Excellent. Very fast. Very efficient.
very personable, very quick....one of the best first visits with any doctor
I think Dr Eng is the best I am so happy that Dr Maria Marcu recomended me. Thank you so much for treating me exellently.
Front desk staff was very rude and uninformative.
I've been a patient of Dr. Eng's close to 3 years now. He's very thorough, and knows exactly what's needed for the condition you may have. I've also recommended patients to him, and they are very comfortable with Dr. Eng. Thank you Dr.Eng!
Dr. Eng was very friendly and seemed to know his stuff. The office staff and nurse assistant were all nice and efficient. I don't know if I'd make this my go-to practice, though. The office seemed a little run-down.
Very friendly and professional.
The doctor is good, his support staff seems a little absentminded, though (i.e. I didn't get a receipt when I paid the copay, they weren't able to verify scheduling when I was leaving)
Great bedside manners, perhaps one of the best in terms of Dr's I've ever visited. Took his time with me and paid attention to what I was saying
I felt as if I was being taking care of. Great Dr.
