Everything was great! I came in for my annual physical - Dr. Bregman was very thorough and spent a great deal of time with me. She recommended a few blood tests and let me know the results very quickly. The nursewho took blood for my blood test was awesome - I'm terrified of anything intravenous but she was quick and kept me distracted! Thank you!!

This office is really well coordinated and wonderful. The intake was quick and directed me to a lovely medical assistant/nurse who was patient with me as I was squirmy with needles. Great venipuncture skills and painless vaccines. Dr. Bregmanis down to earth, easy to talk to, demonstrates great listening and asks the right amount of questions. I've seen Marina and others at this site and its always a great experience.

She's super-easy to talk to and spent a lot of time getting to know me. I guess it remains to be seen how this all works if I actually get sick (she only sees patients on Thursdays, so in an emergencythe odds are I'd been seen by one of the other doctors), but as a primary-care doctor for routine visits, I feel very happy to have found her. Also happy that she's in Morningside Heights, which is rare for doctors.

This doctors office has overbilled me and my family for our visits consistently. We get bills and calls monthly and the office refused to apply our insurance. Ever since this first visit we have been receiving bill after bill for thefull amount of service and no matter how many times I provide the insurance info (which no other doc has had problems with), I get another bill for the same full amount and calls saying that I need to "pay what is owed". It has even started to feel like harassment, and Yell reviewers actually complain about the same thing. Patient beware.

Doctor Bregman was excellent! She made me feel very comfortable and took the time to listen to my concerns and ask questions. All the other girls in the office were very nice and pleasant too. Everybody made me feel comfortable andwelcomed. I did not have to wait long to be seen. I highly recommend this office and Doctor Bregman to anyone who's looking for a primary doctor.

I am continually impressed with each subsequent visit to both locations of West Side Family Medicine. The practice owners, other primary care physicians on staff, nurse practitioners, and physician's assistants don't rush patients, arevery thorough about overall health, have superlative bedside/lab-side manner, and make everything as painless as possible. I used to dread going to doctors of any kind and avoided them unless I had an acute, immediate medical issue, but WFM makes the experience as pleasant as possible and, thereby, makes me more willing to take all steps necessary to take care of my health. Rachel Bregman is far and away the best PCP I've ever worked with.

I am new to this practice and this was my first visit with Rachel Bregman. I felt really comfortable with her and thought her beside manner and professionalism were fantastic. I haven't completed a physical in a long time and wasnervous about this visit but she was able to ease any anxiety I had right away. I would highly recommend her as a great all-around general physician.

I am saddened by my experience at WSFM.I have been waiting since October for the doctor to sign off on my blood work and to discuss it with me. I called on multiple occasions and explained that I would no longerhave insurance after November a and needed to know the results prior to just in case follow up was necessary. To date, I still haven't received a call from the office and my insurance ended today. I wouldn't recommend anyone who is looking for a new doctor and I will most certainly be switching PCP. Unacceptable!

I think she's a very good doctor. Her office staff should be MUCH more professional in their demeanor and front office activity. Eating McDonald's and loudly talking about patients (we can ALL hear you) in the negligible 'waiting area' is ridiculous.

1st and major concern is that the copay is paid BEFORE service rather than care or concern for the patient. I've never in my 60 years been in a doctor's office that has such little regard for patients. Sterile, cold, andlacks any feeling that the people working there have interest in a patient's health
