She's great but just really hard to get an appointment. No availability.
I liked Dr. Bregman. She was very thorough and very professional.
Dr. Bregman was professional, highly competent, thorough and very caring. She saw me on time, never seemed rushed, was thoughtful and also warm and friendly. I give her my highest recommendation.
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 nurse who took blood for my blood test was awesome - I'm terrified of anything intravenous but she was quick and kept me distracted! Thank you!!
It was a pleasure meeting Dr. Bregman and I'm happy to have her as my doctor.
Seen very quickly, lovely person, very professional and helpful.
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. Bregman is 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 emergency the 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.
She was wonderful! Very friendly and informative- would definitely recommend her!
Dr. Bregman and her staff were both very professional and welcoming. Dr. Bregman answered all my questions, and addressed my concerns. Highly recommended.
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 the full 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 and welcomed. 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.
Nice people all around trying to provide good service.
All professional, all pleasant. The person taking my blood was terrific. I did not even feel it.
She is really great. I love her!
Dr. Rachel Bregman is AWESOME. I was early so I got seen BEFORE my appointment time (!!) I had come in with some confusing information from other doctors and she clearly and efficiently figured it out and explained it to me. I would highly highly recommend her as a primary care physician.
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, are very 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.
Dr Bregman was very thorough on my first visit. She was great about answering all my questions and allaying my small concerns.
very good. She is professional, tentative, and take time to explain.
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 was nervous 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 longer have 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!
best doctor I've have ever had. she is easy to talk to and is always willing to answer any questions you.
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.
i trust her.....she s a professional with a good bedside manner....i highly endorse her....
I was seen very promptly and felt that Dr. Bregman was very friendly, professional and thorough.
Dr. Rachel is great. Friendly, knowledgeable, and had me in and out of the office quickly. I would highly recommend her and everyone else in the Westside Family Medicine practice.
She was the first Primary Care Doctor to really try to get me to get all the checks with the right specialists for my entire body. She even has been helping me find a way to lose weight and she has been very sensitive and really seems to care about her patients.
Dr Bregman is great.
Dr. Bregman was very nice. She seemed genuinely concerned and caring. This was my first appointment with her.

Dr. Bregman is an excellent physician who is also empathetic and takes the time to really listen to you and make personalized recommendations. I recommend her highly.

Easy to talk to, thorough and sensitive to concerns.
She's very personable, very knowledgable about medicine, and is very focused on your needs.
The best experience I had with doctors offices I was lucky to find Dr. Rochelle she is amazing!
Dr. Bregman is wonderful. She is kind, personable, and takes time with her patients.
She's professional with great bedside manner. I don't live or work anywhere near her office but continue go to her because I'm very comfortable with her and have a great experience every time.
Very professional and knowledgeable. Office nurse was careful to provide all readings-- blood pressure, glucose, anemia.
She was efficient, respectful, and addressed all my concerns.
She is a great doctor, cares about her patients and takes the time needed to make you comfortable.
She was thorough...professional and very personable. She listened to all my concerns and was generous as she was thoughtful in her feedback.
I thought Ms. Bregman was great.
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, and lacks any feeling that the people working there have interest in a patient's health
Very impressed with doctor and her staff--was seen in a timely fashion and treated with respect! I will definitely spread the word :)
Dr. Bregman was very courteous and informative.
It was a great experience. She is a good doctor, and is highly recommended.
It was my first visist with Dr. Bregman and I would highly recommend her. I found her to be very thorough as well as professional and approachable. I booked an appointment for her services as an OB/GYN and made an appointment for her services as a general practitioner on the way out.
Dr. Bregman was polite and professional. My appointment was scheduled for noon. I was called to the exam room by the nurse at 12:05. Dr. Bregman met with me at 12:15. The exam was thorough and she took a careful history. She also gave me the next steps I should take in my own preventative care. I appreciated that the practice was able to do lab work on site. No more having to take another day to go to a lab in order to get blood drawn for routine tests.
Fantastic doctor and fantastic service. I am glad I found this doctor and would recommend her to anyone.
I thought it was a great experience. She was very informative, I did not feel rushed and the office was very clean.
She was thorough and professional, took the time to answer my questions and address my concerns. The staff were kind and helpful, and the office was very clean and organized. I would definitely recommend Dr Bregman and the practice.
I was quite pleased with this experience and the doctor was great.
While I had to wait a while, Dr. Bregman's attention to detail made it worth the wait.
