Verified Patient Reviews
I can't rate Dr. Pacifico more highly. I have had many doctors in my life, and he is hands-down the finest. Dr. Pacifico's staff is also attentive, kind, professional, respectful, informed. The wait time was minimal, all questions were answered, and I received a complete physical, where other doctors in my life have cut corners without explaining why. Thank you, Dr. Pacifico, for taking so seriously your most honorable calling.
His personal manner and his promptness and clarity in explaining procedures.
Doctor was not thorough or knowledgeable. Deferred all questions to his referrals of specialist when questions and concerns raised were minor. Rushed services. Will likely go to another primary care physician.
Dr Pacifico was very professional. Wait time was minimal (only a couple of minutes) and I felt totally comfortable during my examination. Would recommend. Thank you!
Dr. Pacifico is very thorough and listens to you. He makes recommendations and has excellent bedside manner. The office wait time is always no more than 5 to 10 minutes. They are respectful of your time as they urge you to be respectful of theirs and other patients.
Dr. Pacifico was very professional. I am healthy and just went in for a physical so I didn't require much time with him, however, in the short time we spent for the visit, I felt very comfortable. When I called back for my test results, he called me back within 15 minutes and explained things very well. I highly recommend him and will definitely be coming back here for all my future visits!
Just awesome all around as usual.
This was my first visit to meet Dr. Pacifico after my long time PCP had retired. His office was organized and the receptionist was helpful and courteous. I was called in to the doctors office shortly after completing all my forms. A PA took my blood pressure, height and weight and temperature and told me Dr. Pacifico would be in to see me shortly. In less than five minutes Dr. Pacifico came into the office and spent about twenty minutes discussing my health history along with any specific concerns. He was thorough and professional and answered all my questions. I never felt rushed and I was very comfortable with him. I would highly recommend him based upon my initial meeting with him.
Very polite and professinal. Greeted me with a warm welcome and a smile. Answered every sigle question I had with great detail!
It was my first time and he was very pleasant and attentive.
Dr. Pacifico is extremely professional, kind and always answers my questions in detail (I never feel rushed). I highly recommended him, simply the best!
Dr. Pacifico was one of the best doctors I've seen in a while. He was extremely patient and took all my concerns seriously. He has a very gentle, kind demeanor and made my time there worthwhile. Thanks, Dr. Pacifico!
Great friendly doctor.
Dr. Pacifico is thorough, diligent, and professional. He will answer any questions thoughtfully, and in an easy to understand manner. He is a pleasant gentleman. I highly recommend him.
I've been seeing Dr. Pacifico for 3 years and he never disappoints. He's always right on point and very diligent. He personally calls me to discuss my test results within a week every time I see him. I would highly recommend him. He's the best.
Dr. Pacifico is outstanding!
I went to see Dr. Pacifico for an annual physical. I was seen immediately after filling out my new patient forms (which was also a breeze). Dr. Pacifico conducted my physical thoroughly and professionally. He has great bedside manner. I will definitely be back next year.
Very pleasant, confident, knowledgeable.
Dr. Pacifico is awesome! He actually listened to me and then explained things to me. I would definitely recommend him. Also, the nurses were very nice and friendly.
great and friendly profissional
Dr. Pacifico was certainly professional and efficient with my annual checkup. As long as you're honest with your history and latest conditions, his evaluation of you will go very smoothly and easily. He's approachable and easy to communicate with, so I look forward to years of smooth annual physicals with him!
There was barely any wait time, the visit was extremely efficient.
Dr. Pacifico was amazingly well-mannered, listened intently to everything I said and provided actual, real feedback and possible solutions. He was considerate of my time and treatment options, and made me feel extremely comfortable that I was in capable, competent hands. I've been through multiple doctors in the past several years due to insurance changes and the like, but I have finally found a doctor that I would go out-of-network for.
This office is completely mismanaged. They switched doctors without my consent and I waited an hour and a half to see the doctor. The staff up front kept telling me I would be seen soon or that I was next. If you have time to kill then the practice is a fine one to.visit.
Thoughtful, listens well, with great patient care and advocacy skills.
Always friendly and willing to provide judgment free advice. The staff at NYU Langone are professional and cordial. Best Dr. office in NY IMHO.
Thorough and caring visit. Virtually no wait time. Very efficient as always.
Good beside manner, professional and respectful doctor.
Dr. Pacifico very nice person and great professional surely I recommend him to anyone nice to have met him thanks
Dr. Pacifico is great. The Miller Practice as a whole is excellent.
Very professional and courteous. He listened everything I had to say and provided helpful advice.
really great bedside manner, and knows his stuff. listens to the patient, and doesn't rush you out. Great appointment! Highly recommended PCP!
The doctor was very kind and attentive. He listened to what I had to say, showed that he actually read my chart, and he even brought up concerns that I might have had before I did!
awesome as always
Dr. Pacifico and his staff were super professional and efficient; they made my experience really quick and painless. Made an early morning appointment for a basic checkup as a new patient, which can sometimes drag on, however even though I arrived a bit early they were able to get me started even before my appointment time. All in all I think I was in and out in under 30 min, which given my basic needs was exactly what I was looking for. Highly recommended.
Dr. Pacifico is a good listener and very knowledgeable. I found my the perfect doctor thank you Zoc Doc
Very quick, timely, nice, knowledgeable and great assistant staff - everything I'd want in a doctor. Will be back.
Fist visit, seems like a nice Doctor attentive and courteous.
Definitely a rebook and first choice for the future.
Well I only had a very short check-up, but he was really nice!
Dr Pacifico Is a great Dr., and the entire office is superbly professional, efficient, and friendly. You can always expected to be greeted with smiles and helped right away. I happened to arrive arrive a bit early for my appointment so the got me in early. I also wound up needing an X-Ray, and he checked on the possibility of accommodating me immediately, which they were able to do and did. Could not have been more pleased with the experience.
I found Dr. Pacifico to be kind, friendly and warm. Absolutely lovely man. Smart, efficient and soft-spoken and up on the latest technology. I felt immediately comfortable and confident. I highly recommend him. The girls who work in his office are super nice and also very smart! They helped me with the sign in tablet and they helped me call my insurance and register Dr. Pacifico as my new primary care physician. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
Dr. Pacifico was very thorough and caring. He LISTENED, which is very important to me. Very professional.
It was great. The office is paperless which is nice but its almost robotic at the front desk.. hand print, photograph, say your social out loud... It seemed like a lot at first but the fact that they handle it all as soon as you walk in, in an effort to eliminate paper, I appreciated that. I was seen moments after I finished filling out the paperwork and I didn't have to wait at all in between the PA and Dr. Pacifico. He didn't rush me. He listened to all of my concerns and didn't make me feel like my questions were silly. He let me know that I could call him anytime and follow-up with any questions that may come up later. This was my first visit with him and I will definitely be going back.
Dr Pacifico was excellent. His bedside manner was top notch as I feel that that is important to me. He was very polite and listened to all of my concerns and addressed them in a professional manner. He also made me feel at ease. I would definitely recommend him.
I've been seeing Dr. P fit over 20 years. By far the best doctor of any kind I've ever had.
What a great doctor!!!!
It was good
Dr. Pacifico is knowledgeable, friendly and knows how to ask the right questions and listen to the answers.
Dr Pacifico was very informative and compassionate.
thorough and respectful
Dr. Pacifico is the best doctor I have ever been to. He is so kind and knowledgeable. He always listens to me and I genuinely feel he is truly trying to help me. Almost every doctor in NYC is rushed, abrupt , makes uou wait exorbitant lengths, etc and Dr pacifico proves it is possible to be humanistic, make time, and truly be caring in a sea of fast paced madness. He is also exceptional with knowledge far beyond that of the average primary care doc. I cannot recommend him highly enough-i wish he was every kind of specialist in addition to a primary care doctor! THIS is the kind of person who should be a doctor and I am so grateful to have him help me.
Great, reliable professional who I have been going to for many years.
Very friendly and professional.
Just a simple, pleasant visit to to get general consultation about what I should be getting for my trip to Peru. I can't say more than that since I had no medical problems that needed to be treated.
Second time visit and he's been great since day one. Don't mind coming from queens for his services. Awesome and very professional
Dr. P is the best hands down, along with a couple other doctors at the miller practice. I come all the way from the Bronx because he is worth the traffic and/or busy MTA traffic. He is very attentive at the same time he takes his time it feels so efficient and quickly in and out. he makes me feel so comfortable!
Swift, accessible, smooth visit. Seen quickly, and great bedside manner!
in & out-- so fast!!! he is awesome! The office is awesome!
Very personable and timely.
Attentive and throrough
Dr. Pacifico is very friendly and easygoing, communicates well, and listens well. The nurses and the phlebotomist were very friendly, introduced themselves, and explained what they were doing. Wait in the waiting room was less than 15 minutes. My insurance recently changed, and I'm glad to have found a great primary care physician on the first try! Highly recommend!
Professional and good bedside manner
Exellent and on time
Dr. Pacifico is great! I have a somewhat interesting allergy and he has taken the time to get to know me and my allergy concerns and can always answers my questions or find the answer. He has excellent bedside manner. I have been going to him for years and will continue to do so!
I saw Dr. Pacifico for an annual physical and it went very well. The office staff was friendly and prompt. They took be before my scheduled appointment time and I did not wait in the exam room any longer than 5 min. before the Dr. entered. He completed a thorough exam and addressed all questions/concerns that I had. I will be returning here for sure.
Couldn't be happier with this experience. I spent a lot of time researching doctors around midtown and Dr. Pacifico was a favorite among many people. My high expectations were met. His support and admin staff is also fantastic – kind and on top of everything. Also worth noting: this is the first time I've given a blood sample since I was a teenager when I didn't get extremely light headed or faint. Both the doctor AND the nurse brought me cups of water after I said I've had trouble in the past, and the nurse was very nice to me and talked me through it and it was over before I knew it.
Dr. Pacifico was thorough and made me very comfortable. He answered my questions, didn't rush, and set up a plan for me. I highly recommend him.
Dr Pacifico is the best. You won't be disappointed. Guaranteed.
Dr. Pacifico is the best!
I have read some of the reviews about how reception is not very friendly or even rude....I have found the absolute opposite. This visit was amazing from the time I arrived to the time I left. I dealt with 4 different people on his staff and reception and each one was very pleasant. I was seen within 10-15 minutes from the time I walked in the door and I was a new patient. All my tests for Pre-op visit were done from the same office. Now, on to Dr. Pacifico.....wonderful person. I felt very at ease. He listened and offered suggestions to all of my concerns. All in all..... I have found my new PCP. I highly recommend the Doctor and the office.
Superior doctor and superior nurses. Never have to wait - consistently greeted at appointment time. Extremely efficient.
Dr. Pacifico is thorough. Although, I am rather young and relatively healthy, he takes the time to properly test the situation before just counting it as anomaly.
Dr. Pacifico was very good. Went for an annual examination and he was very thorough and was also a good listener. He definitely took his time - no rush.
As always, he is super...professional, caring, attentive and personable. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Pacifico!!!
Dr. Pacifico is always happy to spend as much time with me as I need to make sure I'm comfortable with his advice and diagnosis. And he never makes me feel bad for having questions or wanting to know more.
The office is great! Everyone is professional, and they upload your results onto an online portal, so everything is available quickly. Dr. Pacifico is very kind and professional. I'm so glad I found him!
Always positive. He always explains the prognosis in a non clinical way. He's the best. Couldn't leave a message on #1 as the button doesn't work,
really good doctor
He's a great doctor. He's very busy but always has time and a relaxed manner. I highly recommend him. The only reservation I have is he might get even more patients!
Great Doctor! Really nice.
Outstanding professional. He just became my 'permanent' physician.
Really helpful, polite and friends.
Very professional and understanding
I moved to New York a few months ago and needed a new primary care. I found Dr. Pacifico through ZocDoc and with all of the positive feedback I've seen in the reviews, I decided to choose him as my new PCP, and I'm glad I did! He had a very professional demeanor and was very thorough with answering all of my questions. I definitely recommend him.
Dr. Pacifico is great. He listens to all of the patients concerns and asks all of the right questions. I have been seeing him for 3 years now and he never disappoints.
Dr Pacifico is extremely friendly and makes sure you feel totally comfortable with what he is telling you before you leave his office. Anyone looking for a knowledgeable and professional new Primary Care Doctor shouldn't hesitate to make an appointment with Dr Pacifico,
A great doctor, very thorough and helpful.
Great guy .
He's been my primary doctor for years now and he's fantastic. I often hear people complain about their doctors and always refer them to him. Highly recommended.
Dr Pacifico is attentive and very personable...He does his best to make you feel at ease and also thoroughly assess your needs. I would highly recommend to anyone needing a new doctor.
I have been fortunate to be under the care of Dr. Pacifico for over two years. I could not express in words what an outstanding professional he is!
A+ Looks like I just found my new PCP
Always professional and informative. He is the best and so are his staff.
As always very professional. He's my favorite physician. His bedside manor and level of professional are above reproach. He's the best.
Good Doctor, freidnly, takes his time, explains what he's doing.
Dr. Pacifico is fantastic. His bedside manners are superb and he takes his time to hear you out.
I'm a big fan of Dr. Pacifico, he would still be my primary if I hadn't left the NYC area.
Dr. Pacifico has been my primary care physician for over a year, and he has been great every single time I've visited. He is kind and knowledgable, and takes the time to answer questions thoroughly. It's especially hard for him because my mom wants to go through every minute detail, and Dr. Pacifico is quite understanding and patient. I needed a referral for a podiatrist for this visit, and I got it quickly and seamlessly.
Dr. Pacifico is great! He's very nice and friendly -- excellent bedside manner and very thorough when going through test results. I will continue to refer friends and family members to him! He has also given me great referrals for specialists.
Dr. Pacifico and the office staff were very professional and efficient. I didn't have to wait and all of my expectations were met.
The staff kept me waiting over an hour. Why? Not because the doctor was busy, but because they just forgot about me. The staff is completely inept. Al the time they were eating and complaining loudly about this and that and not even doing their job.
Great visit, very friendly and informative. I would highly recommend.
I've had a very hard time finding a good doctor in the city. Doctors in New York tend to be rude and rush through the appointment. Dr. Pacifico was kind, easy to talk to, and had my undivided attention at my appointment. Very pleasant.
