Very personable and caring doctor.
Great doctor, very pleasant. Took time to talk through my questions and explain his reasons for doing (or not doing) certain things. Showed a genuine interest in me. Very thorough without making a routine appointment excessive. Will definitely see him again.
Dr. Ford always takes the time to understand what is going on. Very thorough in his explanations as well.
I've already recommended him to friends. He was great! The office staff was lovely and efficient as well.
He really took his time to go through my history and family history to identify any watch-outs. He was very thorough and followed up with a personal note with my test results.
outstanding physician - great demeanor, very caring, spends as much time as you need to manage your situation. The best doctor I've ever had
Dr. Ford was amazing! He was very thorough in his exam as I was a first time patient and he really takes the time to get to know his patient and make you feel like more than just another patient in a long line of patients. I would highly recommend Dr. Ford.
Dr Ford is an excellent doctor. He is very knowledgeable and caring. I will definitely come back to Dr Ford and will get my family to start to visit Dr Ford too.
Really easy to talk to. Never felt at all uncomfortable. Very knowledgeable. Didn't feel rushed. Would definitely recommend to others.

Doctor Ford was one of the best Primary Care doctors I have been too. Did not feel rushed, explained everything in detail, and answered all of my questions .. If you are new to the city and need a PCP go to him!!
Great personality and technologically up to date, you can view your medical information online and correspond with your doc via e-mail which is ultra convenient for re-filling prescriptions, getting referrals and test results since it's through a Weil Connect secure server (haven't tried that yet though).
I liked Dr. Ford's cheerful thoroughness and the attentive way he listened to me.
First visit. Great personable and detailed manner. Explained the detail behind some of the drugs as well as the anatomy, which i appreciate, as a scientist I like to understand what my Dr is considering and why. Very impressed and feel very confident that I will get top quality care from Dr Ford.
The best doctor I've ever had in my entire life. Hands down the nicest guy and he truly cares about his work and you as a patient.
Good visit, friendly and efficient.
I am an MD so my perspective may be different than that of someone from another profession. Entering as a new patient, first visit I am happy to say that I had a 5 star experience from my initial contact with the reception staff through my signing out process. Dr. Ford is very personable, efficient and thorough. He anticipated questions, discussed options and explained his recommendations. His nurse was just as nice and capable. I booked a new patient appt for my partner on my way out because internists like Dr. Ford are a real find.
excellent, patient, and thorough.
Very efficient, thorough, and knowledgeable. Additionally, his staff (both reception and nurses) were friendly and prompt, and they utilize the newest technology in testing, record keeping, and prescription management.
My visit was FANTASTIC. I am sincerely impressed with Dr. Ford and so thankful to find him as my new PCP! The office staff was great, no wait at all, spotless office. Dr. Ford's bedside manner is exactly what you would want from a doctor, and you can tell that he genuinely cares for his patients and our well-being! I have already recommended him to a friend.
Best doc out there!!!
I haven't been to a doctor in 5+ years so was a bit nervous for my physical. Dr. Ford put me to ease right away and spent much more time with me than I anticipated. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great primary care physician.
Dr. Ford is a fantastic physician and a warm, caring person. I cannot say enough good things about my visits with him. Every time I see him, he gives me his full attention and talks through issues very thoroughly. He lets me ask questions, and takes me seriously.
He is an amazing doctor. Listens to you very carefully. I am definitely going back to him.
Excellent bedside manner and great overall doctor.
I was really taken back by how wonderful this initial visit with Dr. Ford was. As other patients have pointed out, Dr. Ford really does listen. He is very personable and takes the time to explain things and answer questions. He actually works with you to address any issues or concerns. I am really happy to have found him and look forward to being his patient. I recommend him highly.

Dr. Ford is excellent!. He cares highly for his patients. He answered all of my questions and made me feel totally comfortable. Caring, detailed doctor.
Dr. Ford is honestly great. He was recommended to me initially from a friend and he will undoubtedly be my doctor from here forward. He's thorough, careful, and makes sure to explain everything he does. He's willing to answer any questions that you have and is also hilarious.
Mike has en excellent bedside manner. Friendly, thoughtful and asked good questions.
Caring, detailed doctor. I have been looking for a PCP since I moved here 8 months ago. I found him on ZocDoc and am really glad I did. He genuinely cares and has a good sense of humor.
Great facilities and experience. The nurses and Dr. Ford were extremely friendly and attentive. They really took the time to listen and I did not feel rushed. I highly recommend this doctor and facility.
Loved Dr. Ford! The office staff was super friendly and Dr. Ford was extremely attentive and spent a lot of time with me understanding my symptoms and thoroughly explaining prescription options. Most doctors are in and out of the room and throw prescriptions at you. Dr. Ford was attentive and truly caring. Best part was I got an appt in the same day. I will definitely be switching to use Dr. Ford as my primary care doctor.
Great bedside manner and very attentive but became a little backed up in the morning
Best bedside manner of any doctor I've been to. Good sense of humor.
Hadn't been to the doctor for a physical in 3 yrs so I was like here goes... What I found: Facility is state-of-the art. Can access health information online and on iphone. I like that as I am tech person Front office staff is very professional, not the borderline ghetto crew you can sometimes get. Dr. Ford and I had a conversation and I could tell he was trying to establish a connection which he did in the end. Genuinely like this guy.
Great appointment! Will definitely be returning to Dr. Ford in the future.. Glad to find a good Doctor in the city..
He was professional, friendly and knowledgeable.
Very nice person -which's make him an excellent Dr.

The visit was great. Dr. Ford was amiable and made me feel very comfortable despite my long hiatus from visiting the doctor's. His nurse was very sweet too.
I saw Dr. Ford for an annual physical and he was fantastic. Caring, interested, smart, intuitive, easy to talk to, took a lot of time to get my entire medical history. The best medical care I can remember receiving - highly recommended!
Dr. Ford took a good amount of time, was very thorough, and seemed to genuinely care. I highly recommend him.
Very nice and affable, I was impressed with the quality of care and attitude.
Dr. Ford was very professional and knowledgeable- and put me at ease almost immediately. He cared about my family history and my overall well-being, not just the symptoms I had when I came to see him.
I agree with all the other comments I have read, in addition he has a very practical way of looking at your overall health situation. Also, if you like to manage your own health along with your doctor the online access to your file is great or a least a new twist to me.
Very knowledgeable, thorough and obviously concerned about the patient.
Very professional, knowledgable. The office was great. Will definitely go back.
This was a truly exceptional visit. He spent all the time necessary to answer all questions and explain everything. Very charming, attentive and knowledgeable physician.

Dr Ford was very professional and extremely easy to talk to regarding medical questions. He has a very calm and comforting approach that makes your Dr's vist that much easier.
There aren't enough stars and ratings to express how wonderful Dr. Michael Ford is. There is no one better, as far as I am concerned. I had never seen him before, but had a sore throat and was in desperate need of a doctor's care - I didn't have a physician in NYC so I made an appointment on zocdoc. Dr. Michael Ford was incredible from start to finish - he was sympathetic and truly seemed to care about how I was feeling. He explained everything start to finish and slowed down/re-explained things when he could tell I was having trouble understanding. He was passionate and informative and when I asked him about things unrelated to my throat he was happy to discuss and explain. I will be returning to Dr. Ford for a regular physical and look forward to having him as my general physician from here on out. He is the greatest. OH, AND HE'S VERY FUNNY TOO!!!! :-)
Great patient care!
Dr. Michael Ford was the consummate professional. Friendly, engaging, asked lots of questions, extremely knowledgeable and eager to discover the root cause of the illness I was experiencing. I am deeply appreciative to have been treated by Dr. Ford. I only wish he lived in San Francisco! : )
First time visitor who made an appointment <12 hours ahead of time. Very pleasant bedside manner and spent time discussing & explaining tests, etc. I'll be going back for my routine checkups!
Wonderful doctor and very kind person!!!
Very thorough and great bedside manners!
very personal and accommodating
Incredibly smart, thorough, and insightful with a kind and patient bedside manner--that's a rare combination! Other staff were efficient and professional. Overall, this office is the best I've visited in NYC.
Great doctor. Very thorough.
I like him very much- my second visit.
Very nice. Did not feel rushed in our meeting, all my questions were addressed. Wait time was more than I liked, and if it was a habit I might consider seeing someone else, but Dr. Ford was great and I'll definitely see him again.
Very knowledgable, attentive and patient
Very personable and professional. Really takes time to listen to patients and won't rush you along. Well worth the wait time.

He answered all of my questions and made me feel totally comfortable. He was knowledgeable, super nice and had a great bedside manner. Overall it was a great experience and I highly recommend him.
