Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Dyksterhouse immediately made me feel at ease when he walked in the room. He was professional and personable. As a gay patient, he asked appropriate questions that made me realize I was in good hands. I felt more comfortable with him than other doctors I've had in the past. Additionally, both the woman at the front desk and the woman who took my vitals and blood were friendly and helpful. Overall, one of the better doctor visits I've had.
Dr. Dyksterhouse is awesome. Very easy to talk to. I didn’t even wait five minutes for our appointment to start. Very professional. Highly recommended.
Great first appointment
Doctor Dyksterhouse was incredible. Would recommend to all friends and family looking for a doctor.

Dr D. Is always really great. He’s so nice, helpful, and takes the time to talk to you and answer any questions you have. Always very impressed!
Great first visit. Super friendly and easy to talk to. Answered all my questions and didn't seem like he was rushing through anything. Wait to see him was a bit long but that seemed like an exception more than the norm and he was very apologetic about it.
It was my 1st visit with Dr. Dyksterhouse after my previous Primary Care Dr. @ Mt. Sinai moved on to other pursuits. The 226 W. 14th St. office staff gets high marks for efficiency & professionalism, which is increasingly rare in group practice settings. I scheduled an "annual physical" to get to know Dyksterhouse & was extremely pleased with his thoroughness & communication skills. He was friendly & not rushed & took time to get to know me. I feel very fortunate to have selected him as a replacement for a Dr. of whom I was very fond. I look forward to an ongoing relationship with Dyksterhouse & will be happy to re-visit 226 W. 14th's offices.

Very thorough and great bedside manner
Dr dyksterhouse is a great doctor. Very kind, knowledgeable and professional.
He was attentive to me, as I stating my problem and concerns about my visit. A friend recommended him as easy and relaxing to talk to, which I found to be totally true. This allowed me to give a clearer narrative of what I was dealing with, so he could recommend the best course of treatment. I have since recommended him to other friends of mine.

Very thorough, took time to ask questions and discuss. Personable and pleasant.
It was a simple visit to have blood drawn for some tests required to renew my prescription. Everything went like clockwork.
Dr. Dyksterhouse and his staff were kind, quick, and thorough. I had been looking for a new primary care doctor and I am happy to say that the search is over. I was taken to the exam room right on time, the Nurse and everyone at the from desk were welcoming, everyone listened & seemed to genuinely care about what I had to say, and I left feeling more fulfilled than I have in the past with other doctors. I highly recommend Dr. Dyksterhouse and his team. PS: My bloodwork results came just a couple days after the apointment.
I went to Dr. Dyksterhouse looking for a new primary care physician. I had issues getting in touch with my old physician so I wanted someone who was easily accessible. He was extremely friendly, helpful and is easy to get in touch with through his portal.

Kind, attentive doctor.
Love love love him!
Before I left the Mount Sinai Beth Israel Medical Group office where I saw Dr. Dyksterhouse, I asked the receptionist how I could give positive feedback about my experience, so I'm glad I have this opportunity to do so. The service I received there was immediate and friendly and Dr. Dyksterhouse was the best! Friendly and thorough, with fabulous 'bedside manners'. I would recommend him to a friend in a heartbeat!
Great bed side manner, very knowledgeable, super friendly and thorough. Would highly recommend him!
Dr. Dyksterhouse is very personable and thorough. The appointment wasn't rushed and he efficiently addressed all my questions. It's easy to speak with him frankly and he has great empathy. I was quite pleased by my first experience; he was highly recommended by Dr. Gottlock who is moving out of state.
It was amazing! he was a referral from my last doctor who moved out of the city and I have to say it was a such a great experience. Dr Dyksterhouse made me feel comfortable, seemed concerned and genuinely interested. It didn't feel rushed or like I was just a stop along his day. I'd highly recommend him to anyone.
Doctor appeared disinterested in my medical issue and was relectuant to presue a diagnosis. As a result, my underlying condition was undiagnosed for an extra six months. Doctor did not take the time to explain any treatment options or any potential follow up. Would not recommend to visit this doctor.
Excellent visit. The staff is kind and competent.
The doctor was very friendly and put me right at ease. He listened and helped answer every question or concern I had. Very happy I found him.
Really friendly doctor! Super professional and informative. Happy to have finally found a doctor I can see regularly.
Very professional and friendly doctor. Appreciate a non-alarmist doctor who is straight to the point!
Very friendly and helpful. Dr. Dyksterhouse is a great doctor for those with an LGBT angle
I went to Dr. Dyksterhouse for a second opinion about blood pressure medication. I have tried several different pills but have had bad side effects from them. He came into the exam room and I showed him a list of the drugs I had tried and what the side effects were. He said I had already tried all of the available drugs and the side effects I was having were not side effects of those drugs. He was cold and condescending. I was so frustrated by his attitude that I started crying. He said that our doctor-patient relationship was not going to work out. When I agreed he said "Well" and turned around and walked out. No one came in after that and I just sat there stunned for a few minutes and then left the building. I still feel upset by this visit.
Dr. Dyksterhouse is a wonderful doctor who really cares about his patients!
Really good visit, very clean practice, seen straight away - efficient and professional.
The office is very clean, the staff are professional and friendly. Dr. Robert made me feel very comfortable, answered all of my questions, and also made himself available to me via the patient portal.
Professional. listened well. Truly attentive.
Smart, nice, and he took the time to address all my concerns.
He was very personable, professional, and responsive–just a pleasure. He even laughed at my jokes.
This was my first visit with Dr. Dyksterhouse. He answered all my questions carefully and thoughtfully. You get the sense that he loves being a doctor and he respects and cares for all his patients.
First Dr. appointment in quite a few years, and it was super smooth. Zero wait time in the office. Had to fill out a few forms even though I submitted forms online through ZocDoc, so I would arrive a few minutes early if you're a new patient, but even so, I didn't wait at all. There's a lab onsite so getting blood work also took less than 5mins. Dr. Dyksterhouse himself was friendly and receptive; seemed genuinely curious about the few concerns I brought with me. 10/10 would return.
Incredible experience - very thorough, super engaged in my consultation.
It was pretty awesome. I had a lot of questions and both the staff and doctor were GREAT. I'm not going anywhere else lol. I am even recommending my co-worker as my appt. was 8:30am. I was at work my 10:15! That's pretty fast.
This was my 2nd visit with Dr. Dyksterhouse and he has been great so far. I can tell he really cares about my health and providing a good and caring experience.
Dr. Dyksterhouse and his team were welcoming and very professional. Dr. Dyksterhouse spoke in a manner that was personal and conveyed his interest in doing what is best for his patient. Highly recommend!
First off, I was seen by the doctor almost immediately which is unheard of. Dr. Dyksterhouse was very friendly, attentive to any issues and quick to offer suggestions.
Great listener and took his time with me.
Office staff were super nice and helpful. Dr. Dyksterhouse listened and was thorough.
Excellent visit with the doctor. Very thorough and answered each and every question I had. I never felt rushed. The only thing is that all of the "paperwork" I filled out on ZocDoc, though it said it was sent to the office, apparently their system does not ingest it. So I had to fill out everything again in paper form. Not the biggest inconvenience, but still more time than I would like to spend on doing such.
Robert Dyksterhouse was caring, smart, and practical. I will continue to make appointments with him in the future.
This is my GP and he amazing. Very professional, wonderful bedside manner. I highly recommend him if you can get in.
Robert seems professional, he was able to answer all my questions and to the physical exam quickly.
Personable, approachable, and highly competent.
Dr. Dyksterhouse was very knowledgable and made me feel really comfortable.
First time at the office. Didn't even have time to fnish my paperwork and was already called into the exam room. All staff from front desk, nurses, and doctor were all very friendly and efficient.
What a great visit, listened intently, made sure he reviewed and updated my history, was very understanding. Excellent doc!
Dr. Dyksterhouse is one of the best doctors I've ever had. The whole office is so wonderful and friendly. I see them for hormone therapy (I am a woman and trans), and I couldn't feel more respected or cared for. I can't recommend him highly enough. He's made me feel safe during an uncertain time.
He was extremely through and alerted me to something that I didn't even think was an issue.
Everyone in the office is very nice and professional. I was seen right away. Dr. Dyksterhouse is wonderful.
De Robert Is very professional and kind. Excellent treatment!!
He was professional, knowledgeable and made it a very comfortable visit. I will absolutely go back.
He is so easy to talk to and addresses all of your concerns. No complaints at all! This is how a Dr.'svisit should be!
He was very patient, polite and caring. He seemed to really take the time to listen to my issue, and made me feel comfortable enough to discuss my issue completely. One of the best doctors I have ever been to- highly recommend!
Don't see Dr. Dkysterhouse if you want a doctor to help you in an urgent medical situation! I have been a patient of Dr. Dyksterhouse for a couple of years. I found him unempathetic, but the location was convenient. However, recently I contacted the doctor through email and then by phone to request a recommendation to an ophthalmologist due to something being stuck in my eye which was causing me a lot of pain. He told me to go to anyone who was available that day. He did not help me at all even though I was in tears on the phone and had never had an urgent medical issue under his care before. In fact, he said "there is nothing that makes me feel that you need immediate treatment". I was shocked that he said this (and still am). Luckily, I was able to secure an appointment at NYU and the doctor found 2 pieces of foreign matter in my eye that were removed immediately. I hope that you never have to find a specialist in NYC in an urgent situation on your own. If you find yourself in this situation, you will want a doctor who has relationships with other doctors so that he/she can help you to be seen right away. If your doctor doesn't call the "doctor line" to the office or clinic and you don't have a relationship with the kind of specialist you need, it is extremely difficult to secure an appointment. Luckily, there are still good people in the world and the front desk person at the NYU ophthalmology department could hear that I was in pain and told me to come right in.
Dr. Robert was amazing. He is an easy going doctor how explains everying clear y prpfessional. He makes you feel that he is extremely interested in whats going on with you. I highly recommend Dr. Rober.
Dr Dyksterhouse is an excellent doctor. I highly recommend him.
Best doctor I've found in NYC in 11 years! Treat yourself.
Great bedside manner - he talked to me like a person.
Such a good dude. Easygoing and fun to talk to, which always makes a trip to the doctor a little more pleasant. Plus he had cool shoes.
He was very quick yet thorough; not too warm but got the job done. He assessed and resolved my concerns right away without my needing any follow-up or revisit.
Couldn't recommend more highly - was able to get an appointment last minute on a Saturday and be seen really quickly. Everyone from receptionist to nurse to Dr was great.
I like the facility it has many doctors in one place and a lab in house. First visit with Dr Dyksterhouse - efficient, thorough, gentle bedside manner, very highly recommend him and the facility
My first time seeing this doctor and I was pleased with the care and information provided
Very professional and attentive. Asked great questions and made the experience more tolerable than expected.
Great doctor. Everything was thoughtful and an overall great experience.
Great bedside manner. Saw me right away. Even the shot and the blood work seemed to hurt less than usual. Great visit.
Really liked him. Very friendly, personable, helpful.
Kind and professional. Explained the entire process of my routine physical.
Doctor Dyksterhouse was honest, helpful and very accommodating!
I have been seeing Dr. Dyksterhouse for about a year. He has a very calming and thoughtful presence, and I always feel I have his attention. Moreover, I have found him to be an excellent Doctor!
Dr Dyksterhouse is just right for someone like me --- a doctor resistant woman over 70. He is relaxed, but thorough --- friendly, but professional. I have seen him several times and each time leave feeling confident that I have received good advice/care.
He was friendly, professional, and attentive. I had an overall good experience!
He is my regular Doc. Just making appts through ZocDoc cause it was after hours. He's the best.
Great doctor! Very helpful and knowledgeable. He's definitely my favorite at this location
Very pleased. Dr. Dyksterhouse thoroughly reviews the results of the last visits including the information from other Drs.who have performed other exams. The complete discussion of all the results leads to a solid achievable plan for continued work on areas of concern in the continued management of my health and well-being. Dr, Dyksterhouse is very personable and engaging, His preparedness for my appointment was impressive. Highly recommend him.
He was comprehensive, thoughtful, and made me feel completely at ease. Great experience!!!
Robert is an excellent physician who clearly cares about his patients and everything about my consultation with him personally was excellent. It's only his practice/office that I have an issue with. I cannot recommend his practice because it still forces people to fill out paper forms when they arrive, even after filling out the same redundant information online. Not only does this practice hurt the environment at large through an unnecessary waste of paper, but it's also incredibly frustrating for me as the patient because I choose doctors largely on the basis of convenience. This is the first interaction patients have with the doctor's office, and it's absolutely terrible. Not to mention the fact that now my information is sharded across all the healthcare professionals I see, locked up in cabinets that will never be used. ZocDoc does a very good job of standardizing medical forms and not using their tools is backwards and ignorant. I'm sorry to be so harsh, but it's my honest opinion and it's something I'm very passionate about.
Good visit. Was on the quicker side, but covered what needed to be done
It's incredibly rare in my experience to find a doctor whose office staff is as pleasant, efficient and professional as they are. In fact, it's virtually unheard of....until now! Everyone I met at Dr. Dyksterhouse's office, from the front desk attendant to the phlebotomist, was exceptionally welcoming, courteous and well informed. What a rare treat! I Why in the World would I go anywhere else after receiving the gold standard in service. Oh and did I mention that they post your lab results to a secure website so you can view them along with info like the date and time of your next appt? A tech savvy, professional and friendly doctor's office....priceless!
Great contact, listens well, clear explanations. Highly recommended.
Dr. Dyksterhouse was awesome. I often feel like doctors are rushing me in and out of an appointment, but Dr. Dyksterhouse took the time to get to know me, learn about my family history and listen to my concerns. He was professional, friendly and by far one of the best doctors I have been to in NYC. I highly recommend him!
Dr. Dyksterhouse was a good listener and - unlike many doctors - was not in an incredible hurry to get me out of his office. He answered my questions thoroughly and was also very kind, which I appreciated.
love this office, I never wait very long - easy to get an appointment and I love Dr. Dyksterhouse, he's adorbs. EXcept if you book through zocdoc - it's wise to call and confirm your appt - the office did not have a record of my appointment. Luckily they squeezed me in anyway with no problem.
Cold as a fish. No bedside manner or empathy.
Dr. Dyksterhouse was wonderful. He listened very patiently to my long tale of woe, and never made me feel rushed or pressured. He took my concerns seriously and treated me with respect. I would definitely see him again if the need arose, and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a great doctor.
