Dr. Pesala listened to me and offered comfort even when I was stressed (I don’t do well with shots!). He answered all of my questions and made great referrals. I have not feel comfortable with a PCP in a long time,and I hope to continue to work with him.

Another great appointment with Dr. Pesala who treated my illness and also thought to give me the lab orders for my annual physical so we can have results for that appointment ahead of time. I appreciate the reminder of it aswell as the efficiency. He also recommended and administered the flu shot. I was able to make an appointment right after work and was seen as soon as I arrived.

Dr. Naveen Pesala, is the first doctor in the NYC area that I felt has put my health above the priority of his title or the management of his office. He is invested in my wellness first which is refreshing and self-esteem inspiring.

They cancelled my original appointment last minute (the day before) because it was a day before a long weekend so that annoying, but otherwise the doc was great! Didn't have to wait at all for the appointment, got all my vitalschecked (standard physical). I also had some questions about diet/wrist pain, he answered them patiently. However, all the labwork had to be done at a different location and that was quite inconvenient so this whole process took twice as along as a regular appointment would have been.

I saw him about three times...and every time I saw him I always left with a bad taste in my mouth because of how he never seemed to care about any of my concerns even though they were essentially emergencies. Lasttime I'll be seeing him... he has great availability times and sees you very fast but honestly his thought process is not...the best. Don't try to argue with him if you choose to see him.

Always a quick and thorough exam! Each time I’ve visted, there’s been literally no wait time. Dr. Pesala uses a portal where you can view his notes, your medications, and lab results. I think it’s very innovative.

Like a number of others here, I was uncomfortable. He is knowledgeable and cordial, but I felt rushed in a very quiet, slow office. I think he saw me early, but still rushed. He paid more attention to checkboxes than anythingi was saying. He even tried to change my answer to one of his questions, writing down his own inaccurate version at first. It really did feel condescending. I can't go back, which is unfortunate. He's nearby, knowledgeable, and there's no wait. And I still feel a strong need to move on after one visit.

Dr Pesala is my favorite doctor. Very professional office, appointments always on time. Dr Pesala sees patients himself right away, there is no spending 20 min with the nurse, no filling out endless paperwork. He knows his patience, knows theirinsurances and is aware of what is covered or not covered by their insurance plans. He listens to the patient, thorough with the exam while being cognizant of patience's time. Best medical office.
