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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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+.
