Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Orbuch and his staff were great. He is very knowledgeable and personable and explained everything very clearly. He was great at making sure I felt taken care if my problem persisted. I would highly recommend him.
Nice office, helpful receptionist and got in to see the doctor less than 20 minutes I'd say which is fairly quick for a first time patient. Dr. Orbuch has an excellent bedside manner, friendly approachable and knowledgeable. Gave thorough explanations and recommendations for my issues. I'd recommend him.
The office and Dr. Murray Orbuch were very professional. My only problem was although I had made the appointment with Zocdoc and filled out a bunch of paperwork online ahead of time, the office did not seem to have any of that. Luckily they were still able to see me, but booking an appointment through Zocdoc was a waste of time.
I am so happy I am working with Dr. Orbuch. He truly cares about his patients and has made sure I've been comfortable throughout the diagnosis process. His bedside manner is amazing, and I wish he was my primary! I highly recommend him to anyone.
I had a mixed experience with Dr Orbuch. Wait time was not a problem and his bedside manner was quite good too. However, his ability to explain the next steps caused problems and required follow up visits as there was much confusion. Additionally, some of the medication prescribed was inappropriate (there were better alternatives), which we later both agreed on. I have since terminated the relationship and am now looking for a new doctor.
Dr. Murray is fantastic... he is very easy to talk to and is aggressive about trying different tactics for addressing your problems.
He's great. He even made a personal phone call to follow up.
Dr. Orbuch is great and very considerate. The only issue was the ~90 minute wait time.
The doctor is very nice and personable and I appreciated that he was very observant, asked a lot of questions and thought holistically about the various problems and ordered a series of tests to investigate further and find the underlying issues. Highly recommend.
It was awesome. He really takes care about your issues and is listening to you. He organized an MRI for me for the very next day. 5 Stars. So glad I found him.
I was referred to Dr Orbuch after my doctor suddenly retired. As a long term IBS sufferer I was worried that a new doctor may not treat me seriously. Dr Orbuch was great, very friendly and sympathetic and immediately suggested some tests and treatments that I had never tried before. He even called me at home over a weekend to see how I was doing after trying a new medicine. I highLy recommend him.
Dr. Murray was amazing. He was SO knowledgeable, very understanding and patient and felt like he truly took the time to evaluate my whole person, before trying to nail down the issue at hand. Am so glad to have found him and 100% trust his expertise as a health care provider. ONLY complaint is 1 of his front desk employees was quite rude, and was very impatient when I asked re the wait...after I had been waiting mid day in a very crowded waiting room for over an hour.
I had high hopes after reading reviews and Dr Orbuch was friendly enough but he didn't seem to be taking me seriously and spent most of the time talking about my travels (being from England) and advising that I should study over here as I never went to University and was 'clearly a very bright young lady'. I found him to be slightly obnoxious and condescending, I was due to have tests done and return but I never did and found another Dr.
He was the best doctor I've had in NYC thus far.
Short wait time, caring and inquisitive doctor, would definitely recommend!
He's an excellent doctor. Very thorough.
I would highly recommend Dr Orbuch as a doctor. He was thoughtful and offered time and insight. Unfortunately, I would strongly advise against making an appointment because of the terrible service of the reception desk. The rudeness at check-in was easy to overlook but having called 3 times for almost a week waiting for a reply on a prescription question, it is discourteous and unacceptable. Even asking, "what should I expect next?", her response was "I don't know". I said "ok, so should I expect a return call from you or dr or do you recommend I call back later or tomorrow?" Her reply again was "I don't know I just take the messages". Still haven't received a call back and now starting from ground zero with a new doctor.
Doctor was very profesional. Would highly recommend him to everybody.
Dr. Orbuch is excellent. Very thorough. Asked lots of questions about my medical history. Good humored - didn't brush off my small concerns.
Fantastic. I think he might have solved root of my problems in one visit. He was personable and took his time answering my questions. Highly recommend.
Dr. Orbuch is very knowledgeable, professional and thorough. I highly recommend him!
Very nice, very helpful not only with my health problems but a few others in my family. Drew blood from my himself, which allowed us more time to discuss my health issues.
Appointment was great! I would love to find out the results of the tests that have been done, but it has been two weeks and no one called me. So i called myself, and the phone number is not working! So how am i supposed to contact this doctor????
Patient, to the point and pulled no punches. Thorough and insightful.
i liked him. The wait time was abit long, and the forms i filled out online did not mean i didn't have to fill out more forms at the office. Overall, he was kind and patient and a good guy.
Dr. Orbuch has an excellent bedside manner. He clearly cares about his patients, and unlike most doctors that are just trying to see as many patients as possible, he took his time to explain and answer all my questions. Wait time is a bit long later in the day, so try to go early if possible!
I booked my appointment with Dr. Orbuch on ZocDoc and sent my check-in forms ahead of time. Shortly after, I received a confirmation. Awesome! The ZocDoc web portal worked great, but when I got to the office for my appointment, the practice manager had no record of me. I had to fill out my forms again and wait an extra 15 minutes. This wasn't so awesome. However, the practice manager was super nice and moved some other patients around so I could see Dr. Orbuch right then. I sincerely enjoyed visiting with the doctor. He took his time, asked great questions, and took diligent notes. His bedside manner is excellent - he seems to truly care about his patients. Dr. Orbuch gave me clear and thoughtful advice and an easy plan on how we would follow up on my consultation. I look forward to seeing him again, though I hope he and ZocDoc can figure out whats wrong with the scheduling issue.
I've been seeing Dr. O for years and now my entire family and extended family sees him plus a few friends and their families. He is an old school NYC doctor in the best possible way in that he's thoughtful, takes his time and is connected to many other great doctors in the city to help you get fast and helpful referrals.
very caring and professional.
Great! Would definitely recommend him!
I had been seeing another doctor for years and was not having very much success with the medicine combinations prescribed for my condition. A friend of mine suggested I see Dr. Orbuch for a second opinion. I found him to be very thorough and insightful. He took the time to discuss my symptoms before ordering other tests. I am feeling very optimistic for the first time in a long time.
Dr. Orbuch is great! He listened to all of my issues and made sure I recieved the right treatment. Wait time was a little long 30-45 mins or so. But once you see him and get consultation you'll feel happy that you visited. Thanks Dr.Orbuch!
I waited over 2 weeks for test results, calling to reach the doctor, while still experiencing symptoms and pain.. My calls were never returned after both calling the office and his work cell phone. Eventually I had to pick up the test results and bring them to a different doctor to be reviewed. I would not recommend him.
Dr. Orbuch is super knowledgeable. Talking to him, its clear hes a very smart guy, so you become confident in his management of your situation. Since my first office visit with Dr. Orbuch, my gastro condition is significantly improved compared to the years before changing doctors.
The visit was okay, outside of the fact that they had not record of my appointment being made.
Dr. Orbach was professional and polite. He listened to my symptoms and made valid recommendations. I trust his judgement.
Dr. Murray Orbuch was absolutely amazing. He was very personable, spent more time with me than any other doctor I have ever seen. He asked questions I would have never even thought of. He also tested me for things that other doctors over passed. Highly recommend.
Very attentive and good listener.
Terrible bedside manner. Rude staff. No follow-up or call-back on results after 2 months! I had to repeatedly call the office and ask for results. Avoid this place at all costs.
An expert doc with a classic demeanor.
He's a great doctor.
Very personable. He explained possible problems and even more importantly solutions. His staff was extremely agreeable and Dr. Orbuch followed up with results when promised.
My visit to Dr. Orbuch was excellent. He was very professional, knowledgeable and had a great bedside manner. He rally took care of me and even follow-up after the visit. I would highly reccomend him if you are in need of a gastroenterologist.
It was good. He was very patient and tried his best to help me. It did take him a while to figure out what to prescribe me.
Very Caring and informative
Dr. Orbuch clearly explains the reason for tests and medicines. This transparency in my treatment makes me trust and appreciate him.
My favorite doctor of all time. Thought I had a GI problem...turns out I was pregnant. haha! I didn't know he could also be my primary doctor. Glad I don't have to see too many docs now. Knows his stuff, great demeanor. Highly recommended!
Murray has the best attitude of any doctor I've yet met. He knew I had a broad set of issues and a lot of context to give him, so he made sure we had extra time to go over my illness. He found out things (empirically) that no other GI doc had managed to find. So highly recommended, I already have colleagues who see him too.
I had an amazing appointment with Dr. Orbuch. He was professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. He is very skilled in his field, teaches at NYU medical and is affiliated with Mt. Sinai hospital. After my exam, he brought me to his office for a conversation. He was very clear and gave me much more information and a greater explanation than any other doctor has every given me. I feel like I am in great hands.
Very pleasant, informative and friendly .
Great doctor very nice and had good recommendations!
Very helpful visit.
Great bedside manner. He was very attentive to my overall health. He does not rush you out of his office he likes to know his patient and there history. He offers advice in every category and will refer you to other physician he feels are just a concern about their patients as he is. Wonderful doctor I wish there were more like him.
Very thorough, patient, and good communicator. Listened and responded to all of my concerns.
They couldn't access Online check in info so I had to do it again. Not a big deal but. ... dr was good for 1st time visit. Ill wait for follow up to decide
Dr. Orbuch is courteous with excellent bedside manner. His broad knowledge of general health was very helpful. I left with immediate recommendations and appreciated his direct instructions.
I have been to Dr. Murray and he was amazing, as always. He has incredible bedside manner, and most of all he really takes his time determining what the best treatment is for you. This is my 4th visit and I will keep coming back.
Dr Orbuch is also an internist so I was able to check off two important appointments in one (I went for a GI checkup as I am nearing 50). I really appreciated the time he took to talk with and also listen to me.
Professional and attentive. Highly recommended.
I have had a few visits with him and he is a great doctor. This time I think he was running a bit late due to an earlier patient, but these things happen.
Very forward thinking doctor. He's focused on FIXING the problem unlike many doctors who seem to focus on maintaining it. He found a solution to my medical issues that no other doctors had seen and now I'm healthy and off my medication!
I would definitely see him again. The wait was a bit long in between, but otherwise he was really good.
Great doctor! Very knowledgeable and doesn't rush. Highly recommend.
Very thorough, knowledgeable, comforting and kind.
It was great! Everyone was very friendly in the office and they helped me get all the insurance stuff sorted out after the fact.
great visit, very nice and helpful.
Dr. Orbuch is the BEST doctor I think I have ever been to. I have tried other doctors on ZocDoc with mixed success, but I really can't rave enough about Dr. Orbuch. First of all, he gave me a call directly to answer my questions before I even came in for the appointment. When I got there, I was seen immediately and Dr. Orbuch gave me more than enough time to really get to the root of the problem. He found a solution that neither of my other 2 doctors proposed, and he could explain to me why it worked at a molecular level (he was a chem major)! He is a funny guy, very knowledgeable, very helpful, and treats you like he cares. A+.
Friendly, attentive and knowledgable. Highly recommended
Dr Orbuch was great. Very professional and thorough.
He talked me out of having a procedure done, which was a pleasant surprise considering that's the way he makes money.
Dr. Orbuch was very friendly and took his time in caring about my case. I have been to many offices that shuttle people as if it was a factory but Dr. Orbuch showed genuine care and he was very knowledgeable about his field. I have an excellent experience and would highly recommend him to everyone.
Excellent Doctor.Loved my experience here.Im glad i waited.
Very attentive and caring.
He apologized for the long waiting time and was very professional, friendly and attentive. He gave me all the time I needed and I felt I'm in the best possible hands
He was proficient, sensitive and concerned.
One of the most positive experiences I have had with a doctor in NYC. Very knowledgeable. Took time to answer my questions. Adjusted his level of detail based on my understanding.
Very professional and helpful. Apologized after I waited for 5 minutes! Very pleasent experience!
This was my first visit and I was very impressed. He took his time, had me sit down and explain my symptoms. All in all, I was very impressed.
He took the time to really understand my history and symptoms. He even called me the evening after my endoscopy to see how I was doing. I couldn't be happier.
