I was searching for a new Primary Care Physician after my long term PCP retired last year. A close friend recommended Dr. Raffinan and I was pleasantly surprised with my first visit. It was by far the most thorough and attentive initial checkup I have ever experienced in the U.S. Dr. Raffinan had great, holistic advice to offer and I am confident that he'll help me be the healthiest version of myself going forward.

Dr. R is the best. You really don’t find doctors like him anymore. He has amazing bedside manner. He really listens to all your concerns, documents everything and talks through options you have. He’s extremely practical, which is not something you find in a doctor. I’ve been coming to him for over a year and have recommended many of my friends! 5 stars!

Dr Raffinan is a very pleasant doctor with a broad medical knowledge. He is very thorough, listens to every detail and takes them into account in his diagnosis. He takes his time with you to understand you and does not rush through. Overall one of the best PCP's I have seen. My experience with the office staff was also very positive.

I would recommend Dr. Raffinan to anyone and cannot believe how amazing he is at his job. I’ve been turned away by multiple doctors and specialists saying there’s nothing wrong and he took the time to listen, break everything down, make suggestions, and offer any possible help. Thank you!

The most thoughtful doctor I've encountered in Manhattan. He saw me promptly, took the time to review my medical history (new patient), and didn't rush the appointment.

Dr. Raffinan ticks a few boxes for me. He's a holistic practitioner, and is devoted to preventive steps as he is with dealing with problems. He talks about nutrition and fitness, and contextualizes treatments in terms of quality of life. He was thorough and seems so far (this was a first visit) to be a grounded and knowledgable practitioner. He's going to be my go-to doctor for now as I gain more experience with him.

Always a short wait when I visit Dr R. Have always had great experiences with the staff. Hate having my blood taken for tests but its always super easy here - despite my poor, nervous attitude. Dr. R is easy to talk to and has great advice. Very pleased with my decision to switch to him.

The prescribed drug doesn't work for me at all. I still coughed for a month after visiting the doctor. He didn't give me a confirmed answer about whether I was having flu or just an allergy. He said, "might be either"...

This was my first time coming to the Dr Raffinan's office. It was such a wonderful experience. From the moment he walked in the door he listened to everything thing I had to say, asked me questions, and gave me solution options. I felt very comfortable the entire time. I can see why everyone respects him so much!

The office is asy to find and travel to on the subway. Do not drive here, parmi ng is impossible. Office is clean and comfortable with an ethusiatic compassionate staff. Dr.Raffinan is an excellent listener and provides reasoned feedback and reccommendations. I'm excited I've found a new Doctor I feel great about. Maybe now I'll start going more than once every five years.

Had a great visit with Dr. Raffinan. I got to my appointment 10 mins early and was seen right on time. The doctor spent almost 45 minutes with me discussing my medical and family medical history and all of my acute and ongoing health concerns. I felt like he was really listening and not trying to rush through it at all, which left me feeling comfortable with his diagnoses and advice. Found my PCP!

Went for my annual physical. First time here and expected long processing time to fill out forms and such. Did not take very much time at all - very nice. Woman at front desk was very professional and nice. Nurse who took my vitals was great. I'm not very good at giving blood and she did an awesome job - and dealt with my stress very non chalantly, which was nice. Doctor did a thorough review of my history, checked me out and we had a good discussion about issues and causes. Very personable and professional. I felt very comfortable discussing health issues with him.
