Verified Patient Reviews
Per usual, Dr Essig and his staff exceeded my expectations for courtesy, clinical excellence and service. Dr Essig is not only highly personable but an astute clinician. I highly recommend his practice
Dr. Essig is great! I've seen him a few times now, once for a checkup and twice for more urgent appointments. He has always been able to see me on short notice, has never made me wait, and I'm usually in and out in less than thirty minutes. He also has a great bedside manner, is very reassuring, and makes sure to explain everything that's happening. So glad to have found him!
I've been to 3 other OBGYNs in the city until i finally found Dr. Essig. As a healthcare professional myself, I tend to have high expectations of the doctors I see and I fell in love with Dr. Essig and his staff. Great visit, no wait, and excellent bedside manner! Highly recommend.
Great! I've been going to him for years, and recomending him for years! SUCH a nice doctor, who always makes me feel at ease
Dr. Essig is a delightful person and doctor.
Dr. Essig and the staff at the office are consistently great. I was referred to this office by a co-worker and have since referred 3 co- workers and friends.
Dr Essig is the best! Great beside manner, quickly gets back to you with any issues, and always makes you feel assured/better if there are any issues. He's thorough and really great.
I felt so comfortable with him. Dr. Essig took time to listen to my concerns and answered all my questions. I am so glad I found this pleasant, patient, knowledgeable, and overall experienced doctor. Everyone in the office was so nice.
Very friendly and kind, put me at ease and answered all questions with patience.
This was my first time seeing a Male Gyno and Dr. Essig made me feel very comfortable. He answered all of my questions, was very thorough and made sure that I wasnt afraid to ask anything. I would absolutely go back.
Kindest, most thorough, and helpful as I try to figure out my fertility options.
Amazing, and very knowlegeble. I am glad i have found him. To people who complain about waiting! This is a medical office! Get over yourselves! If you do not want to wait find yourself a doctor who will come to your house and see only you! P.S. One of the receptionists is unpleasant, but i will not stop going just because of that. :)
Fabulous MD, and I'm picky. Spent a lot of time with me and really knows his stuff.
My first time there. Very very nice staff and doctor.
Very happy with my experience with Dr. Essig. He was very warm and personable, and he took time in his office before my exam to discuss all my concerns/questions, and he was great about explaining things to me so that I understood. The exam was also quick and painless. Glad to have found an OB that I can stick with!
I was a new patient and he took additional time out of the appt to get to know me. Very professional and friendly. Would definitely recommend!
Great doctor. Hight recommended
A fantastic GYN. It was my first time since recently moving to NYC and I felt very taken care of. He is a smart doctor, kind, to the point. His staff is very warm and understanding. Great environment!
Very knowledgeable and personable compared to other physicians I've seen over the years-great visit!
I hadn't been to the Dr. in a while so was slightly nervous, but Dr. Essig was very welcoming. We chatted at the beginning of my visit and he was very direct and thorough, but not intimidating. The exam itself was quick and easy and the staff was very nice!
He's friendly, attentive and the staff is warm and inviting. I would highly recommend!
Staff friendly & efficient love the online appointment feature especially love the text reminder. Dr is a true gem thoughtful attentive & patient. Dr is a keeper highly recommend him!
Thorough and straightforward. Answered all of my questions, giving me detailed explanation where I asked for clarification. Didn't rush, took time to make sure my concerns and questions were addressed.
somehow my zocdoc appointment did not go through and the doctor was not expecting me. but, the doctor still made time to see me right away. he is professional and friendly.
He is so great. I recommend him to everyone. He has such a genuine, nurturing way about him, and really makes the patient feel at ease. One of my favorite doctors i've ever been to.
Dr. Essig is very personable and has a wonderful bedside manner. He did not make me feel rushed, as most doctors do, and took the time to answer my questions.
The office itself is a little strange, but he is very personable and warm and makes you feel very comfortable.
Per usual I was impressed by the friendly, efficiemt and professoonal office staff. Dr Essig belongs to an elite group of doctors who seem to still enjoy practicing medicine and speaking to parients. He is thougjtful, thorough and considerate. I highly recommend his practice
The appointment went very well. Dr. Essig is very friendly, helpful, and thorough. My appointment was not rushed, and he answered all my questions. Will definitely be back for future checkups.
The doc is awesome. It's been a while since I've been to an obgyn and I was quite nervous. He put me at ease, made me laugh, was very clear about check ups and birth control options. The only issue was the wait but I believe it to be that I was a new patient and he needed a moment for a consultation. Everyone else was tended to very fast
Personable, caring, thorough, and knowledgeable!
I've only been to the office once but they were nice and they were much faster than the doctor's office's i'm used to which is a good thing. they also pick up the phone right away without asking you to hold, which is highly unusual. the doctor was very nice and sat with me in his office and explained some of my options. i found the reasonable way i was treated highly refreshing. the office isn't fancy but it's very easy to get to by train.
He was great! First doctor in a long time that took the time to go over my concerns. Will keep him as my OB GYN. Great friendly staff as well.
Hi! The doctor is great!!! I would recommend this professional for everybody! Thanks a lot! Have a great time!
He was so attentive with my needs and explained everything. Blown away with how good he was and the staff in general
Awesome doctor! He was extremely knowledgeable.
Dr. Essig is a great doctor. I was a new patient and he took his time getting my history and making reccomendations,while not rushing me at all. He is very thorough, knowledgable,answered all of my questions, and me feel very comfortable throughout my exam. His front desk staff and his assistants are very professional and friendly as well. Overall, I had a great experience. I will definitely be back and would recommend him to every female I know.
Dr Essig is a gem of a doctor. He knows the field inside and out. Not only is he super intelligent, he's warm and kind, and exactly what you want in a GYN. I would recommend him 100% without question!
Dr. Essig was wonderful. I went to see him after reading other zocdoc reviews and concur that he is an excellent physician. He listened to me and answered all my questions. He is practical and easy to talk to.
Very calm,professional, easy to talk with. Don't feel rushed in any way.
Very very long wait time. He was a little too chatty in consultation and exam room- thus why it's easy to see that he was running behind schedule. Once I actually saw him though, I felt incredibly comfortable around him and received great medical attention.
Love him! Have recommended him to many friends, and they've all agreed! He has a great way of making you feel at ease, and answering any questions you might have in a very open and honest way
the wait has never been more than an hour, and most oftentimes there isn't much of a wait (though you get the occasional when previous patients are late) but i will definitely choose mitchell over any other doctor. he is the most patient, caring, and professional doctor that i know. very smart and will definitely take the time to answer all your concerns :D he's a great friend and doctor; someone who possess all qualities of a great physician.
Dr. Essig is a well informed/knowledgeable gynocologist with impeccable social skill and kindness that I have rarely seen amongst medical doctors.I rarely respond to request for a review but this seems well deserved.
It was great! He's gentle and very professional. I didn't wait long to be seen. He answered all my questions with great knowledge. I will definitely recommend him to someone else.
He's was great, made me feel very comfortable and was incredibly accommodating. I'll definitely be going back.
Very thorough and explained everything to me in an easy to understand method. I was looking for a new doctor and as a new patient he treated me exceptionally well. I would definitely go back and recommend to my friends
Thoughtful, patient-centric and clinically thorough Combine hose qualities with a kind and attentive support staff and you have a great medical practice
As always Dr Essig was pleasant and helpful.
Amazing doctor, he clearly cares so much about his patients. He answers any and all questions thoroughly with an excellent bedside manner and great knowledge. Highly recommended!
Personable, communicative, extremely well-informed. I didn't feel rushed and my exam was extremely comprehensive. The front desk staff were professional and very courteous. I have definitely found my new doctor.
This may sound unbelievable, but he is seriously one of the best doctors I've ever had. He was very respectful, attentive and took the time to answer all my questions. Very smart, knowledgeable and caring. Possess qualities beyond any average doctor. I've been to four OBGYN doctors in Midtown already, and he is the best doctor I've found. Try to schedule something ahead of time for an appointment. This doctor is really worth it.
Very professional, warm. Accomodating and pleasant staff.
He is a polite, open and professional person. Very clear when speaking to me as a patient, attentive to my questions and very considerate of my crrent concerns.
Dr. Essig is so great at explaining everything thoroughly, as well as making you feel at ease. He is also extremely considerate and genuine. I would highly recommend him!!
Dr. Essig was incredibly personable and professional and really put me at ease. He went above and beyond to make sure I understood and he answered all of my questions. After spending 4 years looking for a good ob/gyn in NYC I have finally found him - and I will definitely be returning!
Dr. Essig and his staff were very professional and helpful. I especially loved that Dr. Essig brought me into his office prior to the examination to discuss any questions I may have had for him which made me a lot more comfortable with the appointment. He was very willing to answer any and all of my questions and I will certainly be going back to him in the future.
Dr. Essig was recommended to me by a friend who has been his patient for many years. I had my first visit with him today and immediately felt very comfortable talking to him and after leaving the office I know I am in good hands and am glad I chose him to perform my procedure. He was very informative and a good listener as well. I wish I had come to him sooner.
He is definitely my new GYN.
I think he is a very smart doctor and knows what he tells his patients. I had a issue and when he first told me the reason I did not believe him. come to find out he was exactly correct. He has always been very interested in his patients and makes you feel as comfortable as possible. Great Doctor!
So great and nice and really spends to the time to get to know you and make sure you are comfortable.
Dr Essig was the best gynecologist I have seen to date. I would definitely recommend him and am thankful I found a good doctor in the area!
He was very nice
