I think he's great. He actually listens, which is not always the case with doctors. He took blood himself, fast and painless. He did the EKG, also quick and to the point. His facility includes an inhouse sonogram person, and she was good too. I highly recc Dr. Orbuch.

This was my first visit and I have to say that I was very impressed by Dr. Orbuch. He was kind, thorough and very informative and I did not have to wait at all. Where other doctors brushed off my distressof getting bloated and having pain after eating certain food, Dr. Orbuch understood and cared and is sending me for further testing. I have no complaints whatsoever. I highly recommend Dr. Orbuch!

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.

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, takeshis time and is connected to many other great doctors in the city to help you get fast and helpful referrals.

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 muchconfusion. 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.

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 ofthat. Luckily they were still able to see me, but booking an appointment through Zocdoc was a waste of time.

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 sometests 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.

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 studyover 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.

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 himand 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 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-inwas 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.

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 timeis 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, thepractice 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 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 bevery 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.
