Dr. LaVine makes you feel super comfortable and is very thorough!
I've seen Dr LaVine at least 3 times now, and each time has been the same great experience. No wait time! Dr LaVine herself is wonderful. My insurance changed recently, and out of my new options I specifically picked the insurance that covered Dr LaVine...that should tell you something!
She is very nice and polite and answers every question. Staff is very friendly and always smiling. Loved my visit.
I always feel like I'm being rushed out the door.

Nancy LaVine is a great doctor, really thorough, genuinely interested and compassionate. She took her time to ask questions and answer to my concerns. I real gem in NYC.
Doc is awesome and the staff is super friendly!!!!
This was my first appointment with Dr. LaVine, and I was really impressed with how empathetic and thorough she was during my examination. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Dr. LaVine.
Takes her time with you. Asks questions. Listens.
Dr. LaVine is amazing. I saw her for the first time several months ago and decided I had finally found a primary care doctor that I could stick with. When I had to change my insurance recently, I specifically picked a plan that covered Dr. LaVine--that's how much I like and trust her! She is friendly, thorough, knowledgable, and was very clear about what my next steps should be and made it easy to follow through on them.
I think that Dr. LaVine, does an excellent job; and I would highly recommend her.
Good, would definitely come back.
Dr. LaVine is really easy to talk to and has a helpful and caring personality.
She was friendly attentive and trustworthy.
She and all of her staff were great. Took her time and asked and answered a lot of questions.
Dr. LaVine is consummately professional, thoroughly informed, delightful and warm. I recommend her to anyone looking for an excellent internist.
Dr. Levine is pretty cool. I was a little intimidated for like 3 minutes of meeting her, but she's very direct and answers questions very quickly. She basically just asks you why you're there to see her and doesn't try to waste your time and if she can't answer your questions she'll direct you to someone who can.
Fantastic. Professional and thorough. Clean, modern office too!
She is great: very professional, thorough, very smart, down-to-earth and approachable, takes time with me and doesn't rush. She also encourages me to ask questions. I highly recommend her!
Dr LaVine was professional but friendly. She diagnosed me with something that many doctors would have overlooked, just because she was willing to talk to me about all of my symptoms. Highly recommend.
She was great. The office was clean, quiet, new and I felt really comfortable there. Dr. Lavine was really thorough and the appt was really fast. She was knowledgable and straight-forward, listened, answered all of my questions and didn't rush me at all. but I was out of there 35 mins after I turned in my paperwork, including drawing blood and getting my referral from the front desk. Reception was courteous, not distracted or helping me while on the phone, not goofing off with other employees. I was really pleased. Definitely better than most, but they did screw up my referral even though I double-checked and asked questions (not the right ones, I guess). I was later able to call back and they fixed it right away and even called back to confirm that the fax was sent and received. I have made Dr. Lavine my GP and recommended her and the office to others. The other doctors seemed similar. Nurses and phlebotomist were friendly, efficient and quick.
The visit was so easy and thorough. I was in and out in less than an hour and was able to touch base on the few things I needed, in addition to a regular check up and basic bloodwork. Everyone was really great.
Dr. LaVine was friendly and approachable. She really made me feel at ease as a new patient and I felt comfortable asking her questions.
Dr. LaVine was an awesome find! She is a kind, compassionate soul who was able to give a comfortable, quick physical as well as diagnose some of my more challenging health issues over the past few months. The rest of her team is excellent as well, always accommodating rush appointments and stepping in to help when Dr. LaVine is not available (which is rare)!
Dr. LaVine canceled on me yesterday. I got an appointment with Dr. Edwards.
She is wonderful! Her nursing staff were great as well. Definitely recommend!
Excellent Dr.! Took the time to ask questions about my physical and mental well being. Very thorough. Also no wait time! Would recommend her to anyone
Terrific visit, very efficient, got right to the point. I will see this doctor again as my primary care physician!
She's awesome! Incredibly patient and very thorough. Love her!
Fantastic primary care doctor! Very kind, approachable and thorough!
Great! She was wonderful, helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly.
She was superb. I went to her with a potentially scary issue, and she was very friendly and calm. Not only that, but she made a point of saying hello when I came back a week later to meet with a specialist. I've never liked a doctor more!
Great doctor with a great bedside manner. Recommended.
Very pleased! Small town attention in the big city!
Dr Lavine was awesome. Prompt, professional, friendly and extremely efficient. Asked all the right questions and led me in the right direction for further care. Highly recommended.
Friendly Doctor and staff
Dr LaVine was very nice and professional. I will definitely be going back.
I was very pleased. Dr. LaVine is very thorough, thoughtful and responsive.
She was kind, down to earth, and really listened to my concerns. I'm so relieved. It's taken me way too many years to find a good doctor in this city!
very knowledgeable, professional, nice, listens carefully to concerns and is thorough in addressing them
She was great and all of the staff in her office were really friendly. I was surprised by how quickly I was seen - the whole appointment took less than 45 minutes (including paperwork). She listened to all of my questions and was really friendly and attentive. Would definitely recommend her to others.
Doctor LaVine was very personable and friendly. I voiced all my health concernes throughout the appointment and she listened attentively and took notes. I had heard horror stories about doctors not being supportive of vegan diets, but Dr LaVine was very open and encouraging. I highly recommend her and will definitely be returning to her next year.
Visit was great however, trying to resolve a prescription issue between my insurance and the doctor's office. My insurance needs the doctor's authorization and uurse is slow to respond and help resolve issue. It's going on day 4 and still no resolution.
It was thorough and efficient and she made me aware of a shingles Vaccine I was elligible for. Than you Dr Lavine!
Thoroughly delightful and highly professional. My first visit (I just moved to NYC) and with no reservations I authorized her to have all my medical records transferred to her office from my former (for 23 yrs) physician. She covered my history, listening closely, and asked succinct and to the point questions. She was responsive to my concerns and gave me the feeling she would be available and highly capable should I ever have a serious problem. I recommend Dr. LaVine without hesitation.
I had a great experience. She is very sweet and very smart. She was thorough and her staff was attentive. I am really pleased with her.
Great person. Wonderful personality. Willing to listen, understand and assure. =)
Dr lavine is highly professional, efficient, and pleasant. A lovely doctor.
I always enjoy my visits with Nancy. She is very thorough and honest and down to the point. She takes the time to listen to you and your history and really gains an understanding of who you are by asking questions, understanding your pains, and thoroughly examining different symptoms that might lead to the larger problem. I definitely recommend her. In fact, I have sent others to her who also agreed that she is fantastic.
I always love seeing Dr LaVine! She's super pleasant and personable. She makes you feel like you're speaking to a really smart old friend. :) Adore her!
Very efficient office, but still makes you feel like they have your best interests in mind. Dr. Lavine is very thorough and knowledgeable!
I had a pleasant time. Good doctor. No wait time. Lab results were given next day itself. Zocdoc was very helpful for booking an appointment.
The office environment is very pleasant and staff are very friendly. Dr. Nancy LaVine is very detailed oriented and easy to communicate with. The facility seems to be updated and overall relaxing.
She was thorough and easy to talk to. I liked her manner and felt that she knew what she was talking about. I also liked the office. It is very new and quite state of the art.
Dr. LaVine is fantastic and I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Nancy was fantastic. I felt so comfortable divulging all of my family history and going through every little thing I thought was wrong with my body. She was very attentive and asked many questions throughout, all the while taking notes and documenting. She spent a great deal of time understanding my history and my family history. She was very personable, didn't seem to be rushed and spoke straight forward. I would (and have) highly recommend her. Having just recently moved to New York, I was a bit skeptical finding a great doctor but I have to say I really lucked out.
Dr. LaVine is great and very attentive. The only problem is that these days it is impossible to get an appointment quickly. Her next available appointment is always more than a month away. That's file for checkups, but it's a problem when I need to see someone quickly.
She was very attentive and answered all of my questions in a thorough manner. I felt really comfortable and I thought she was great.
Dr. Lavine is a wonderful professional. She is thorough and personable who I highly recommend.
My visit with Dr. LaVine was great! Everyone from the ladies at the front desk to Aisha who took my blood pressure and gave me an EKG were super personable and friendly. Dr. LaVine had a great bedside manner and really took the time to listen to my concerns. She was also very proactive about asking if she could help with a particular problem that I hadn't even mentioned to her during my physical. I would definitely recommend Dr. LaVine to my friends :)
Dr. LaVine was incredibly thorough, attentive, and kind. Wonderful beside manner and the appointment did not feel rushed. She was completely engaged the entire time and made me feel at ease. Her staff was very kind as well. My flu shot and blood work took no time at all, despite my anxiety, and her nurse was thorough and friendly. Great experience!
This was my first visit to see Dr. LaVine. I chose her based on her profile statement and user comments here on ZocDoc. She was very compassionate and really listened to me talk about my issues. I felt like she really wanted to help me and not just get me in and out the door and collect a payment. My overall experience with the administrative staff and nurses was also very pleasant one.
Dr. LaVine and her staff were cordial, prompt and professional. Their space looked newly renovated and modern, felt cleaner and fresher than any doctor's office I've ever been in. The nurse who took my blood pressure even apologized and said it was a "busy day" when I had barely waited 5 minutes-- definitely a good sign. Cheers to Dr. LaVine and her staff for such a positive experience!
Fast, intelligent, amazing bedside manner. Took years in New York to find a doctor I feel good about.
Office was running right on time. Front desk staff was very nice. They draw blood/vacinate on site. Dr. LaVine seemed very thorough and was very nice. I went for an annual physical.
The doctor was very funny, nice and professional. She was very attentive and asked lots of questions and really took her time I didn't feel rushed at all. She is a very good doctor and I would recommend her. She really listens to you and asks alot of questions.
Dr. LaVine is a personable and conscientious physician. The office is modern and clean, the staff courteous, friendly and professional. Dr. LaVine also fills prescriptions electronically, which is quite convenient. Very pleased with my experience and would recommend to friends.
She was nice, but left me feeling uncertain as to what the next steps should be to resolve my issue.
I have gone to see Dr. LaVine twice now and each time she was super straight forward, friendly, and running pretty much right on time! She took the time to answer all of my questions and remembered me when I went back and asked a lot of follow up questions. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a Dr. in NYC!
Dr. LaVine was really great. Very kind, made me feel extremely comfortable, listened to me patiently, asked the necessary questions when needing more in-depth details which showed that she was really listening and genuine. The only little thing that i wasn't pleased with was that some of the nurses at the front desk had some bad attitudes and weren't exactly beaming with professionalism. Other than that the facilities were super clean and modern and definitely made me feel confident about being there. Very happy to be Dr. LaVine's new patient.
So easy to talk to Dr. LaVine.
Dr. LaVine, Nurse Dawn and the receptionist were all very friendly and professional. I did not have to wait at all to see Dr. LaVine, and my entire visit was very pleasant.
Dr. LaVine was very friendly, thorough in answering all my questions, and did everything in her power to make sure I was receiving the best help concerning my situation. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. I look forward to seeing her again!
Super nice, easy to talk to, and actually cares. Finally found my general practitioner in NYC!
She is an amazing, warm person, a caring and professional doctor! Treats you with respect and sacrifices as much time and attention you may need. She called me herself with test results the following day after my visit! I'd like to see EVERY doctor treat their job with such compassion and professionalism!
I brought a book to read during my wait and didn't even get to finish one page! Dr. LaVine saw me right away, listened to my concerns, and gave me plenty of time to ask questions.
Dr. Nancy Lavine was excellent,caring, professional and very thorough. She seems to enjoy her job and most of all to look after her patients health issues. I will definitely recommend Dr. Lavine to relatives, friends and colleagues.
Dr. LaVine was so nice! She was very thorough when asking about my medical history and lifestyle, and wasn't judgmental about anything I divulged.

Professional and to the point.
She was extremely helpful and attentive. Actually my appointment was rescheduled to a month earlier!
Thought Dr. LaVine was professional and thorough and very courteous.
Dr. LaVine was really terrific. She made me feel really comfortable. It was my first visit but I would highly recommend her.
This was probably the worst experience I have had with a doctor in over 10 years in NYC. Dr. Lavine was cold and dismissive - I felt like I keeping her from something she'd rather be doing. Her office staff was rude and not client centered. Their billing office is completely incompetent - I am still getting bills months later, even though my insurance company paid them as soon as they were received. My visit left me feeling disrespected as a patient and a customer. In short, if you value your time, your health, or your credit rating, find another practice.
I really like her. She is very presonable, direct, clear, caring and honest.
Dr. Lavine is a very thorough regarding her questions and patient care. would highly recommend her!
It was the first time I'd been to the doctor in quite some time so I was nervous. Everyone in the center, especially Dr. LaVine, was courteous and made me feel at ease. Highly recommend!
highly professional and easy to work with.
Dr. LaVine was attentive, polite, personable and seemed to genuinely be concerned with my well being. After not going to a doctor for almost 9 yrs she made me totally comfortable. The entire staff was awesome! I recommend the facility and definitely recommend Dr. LaVine!
Everything you want in a doctor: caring, knowledgeable, thorough, etc. A great doctor.
Pretty darn good
She came recommended for a reason. She answered all my questions & concerns with minimal wait time!
Nancy was great- very personable, nice and knowledgeable. The staff at BI was super polite and took me right at my schedule appointment time. I would go to Nancy again in a heart-beat!!!
I am pleased with Dr. LaVine and the rest of the practice. I have been a paatient for a couple of years now.
Dr. LaVine was thorough and speedy. She asked follow up questions as necessary and made me feel very comfortable and welcome to her office. The only negative is that I had to wait about 25 minutes to get my blood drawn - and there was only 1 person in front of me. But otherwise, very professional staff.
She's been my personal physician for several years and has done a terrific job of taking care of me.
She was pleasant and very knowlegable. I needed some additional medical info and she provided it. It was my first visit but I liked her very much. I hope to continue with her.
Dr. LaVine is always friendly and takes time to have a thorough conversation, following up on things from the last appointment.
Dr. LaVine is a pleasure to talk to, answered all my questions and made appropriate changes to my meds. My checkup was done in a timely manner by technical staff.
Office was very professional and well run. Dr. LaVine herself was polite and thorough. The lab technicians who did blood work were fantastic as well. Very friendly staff in general. Highly recommend.
She is a very good doctor, knowledgeable, up-to-date on important medical information, and also very nice. Perhaps she is a tad too impatient, but I understand because I am impatient too, and try to remind myself that a doctor may have to deal with a lot of challenging issues day in and day out. I like Doctor LaVine.
Left good impression. Asked lots of questions and demonstrated her knowledge in inpointing the likely cause of my mediccal problem. Took her time with me to answer all my questions. Happy to have her as my GP.
She's an amazing dr. Very helpful!!
My favorite doctor! extremely thorough, easy to talk to, very understanding.
Excellent and thorough. She treats you like an adult and shows respect. My labs were taken at the same office, and the results were provided to me within 4 days after the appointment.
Nancy was fantastic. I had my first visit with her and she spent a ton of time going through my medical history and even took the time to help me track down a doctor I had seen previously whose contact info I did not have. Very patient and fantastic bedside manner. She seems like she really cares you as a patient.
She was very nice and professional. Also there was virtually no wait time; I was called back right at my scheduled appointment time.
Brilliant doctor, very helpful and compassionate.
I though Dr. LaVine was excellent. She is very thorough and knowledgeable, easy to talk to, and friendly. I felt very comfortable with her.
My visit today was fabulous - I got there early and Dr LaVine saw me right away! She was friendly, professional and thorough while also being very quick! So I walked away feeling confident in my check-up and without the hassled feeling of having to wait - was fantastic! Thanks!

Dr. LaVine was a breath of fresh air. In this city its hard to find a doctor who isn't trying to rush through your appoinment, but Dr. LaVine was attentive, friendly and asked me questions that, not only answered the necessary medical inquiries, but also allowed her to get to know me a little bit . She was very sensitive to my concerns and I am so happy to have found a great doctor in the area!
I thought Dr. LaVine had good bedside manner and took care of my matters quite efficiently. The office staff was friendly and I was quite pleased that I was seen at my appointment time.
I would recommend Dr. LaVine to anyone. I saw her about a month ago and look forward to my next appointment. She is very kind, attentive, and informative.

Very nice and professional.
The doctor was wonderful. Very intelligent and attentive, without being overly 'fluffy.'
I have never had such a satisfying doctor's appointment in New York! Dr LaVine was incredibly thorough, respecting my concerns and discussing each in detail. At no time did I feel rushed or brushed off as I generally do when stuffed into a sliver of a doctor's time slot. It was a huge relief and ZocDoc's seemless process made it all the more easier.
