Verified Patient Reviews
Nice doctor and staff, and they took me right away.
My visit with Dr Ostrowski was wonderful - no wait time, brief and thorough. Excellent bedside manner, and competed all aspects of the visit himself. I would recommend to anyone looking for a PCP, or even in my case for just a checkup.
Really great visit. He is easy to talk to and listened to all of my concerns which is all I needed.
Excellent clinician. Very caring, knowledgeable, and attentive to patient needs.
Was super fast and informative. He made me feel very comfortable and answered all of my questions and concerns.
Very professional and made you feel comfortable
Wonderful, felt comfortable and left informed.
Seemed too chill
I found Dr. Ostrowski extremely friendly and thorough. I highly recommend him as he seems to truly care his patients' well-being.
Dr Ostrowski was knowledgeable and patient. He gave me ample time and attention to listen to my symptoms and explain what he thought would help and why. Moreover, he was very energetic and funny, so I actually had an enjoyable to in my office visit. Will definitely go to him again.
Very kind and efficient.
It was a really pleasant and thorough appointment. He asked a lot of questions and also had concrete answers to my questions. I feel like I'm on the right path to get the treatment I need.
Fantastic bedside manner. Extremely accommodating late hours. Got me in and out and to the pharmacy with no wait.
I've been a patient of Dr Ostrowski's for a few years. He's helped get my asthma under control and has an excellent bedside manner.
Dr. Ostrowski is the kindest, most personable doctor I’ve ever had! I truly trust him and he is beyond tremendously helpful.
Dr. Ostrowski was great! He was very warm, knowledgeable, attentive and gave me honest answers. He asked a lot of questions which is always feels assuring. Highly recommend!
Best primary care doctor in NYC!
Polite professional. Very helpful and great bedside manner.
Great Doctor! He was very thorough, didn't jump to any immediate conclusions-- instead, he first listened very carefully, assessed many facets of my situation, then was very thoughtful about avenues of treatment. Quality patient care.
Highly recommend. Always kind, patient, and very knowledgable. Front desk staff are also very sweet and helpful.
I have been a patient of Dr. Ostrowski for about 14 years now. He has always been extremely nice and very easy to talk to. He speaks fluent English and Polish as well as Spanish. The wait time at his cozy office varies, but usually I'm seen within 5-15 minutes depending on how busy it is. He has never misdiagnosed me, has always been very open and ready to explain everything about whatever illness I come to him with and about the treatment. He is a great doctor to have as you Primary Care Physician. He is also an amazing pulmonologist. I had asthma for many years which lead to bronchitis and pneumonia almost every time that I came down with a cold. Not only did he help me treat my asthma by controlling and minimizing it's symptoms over the years, but he also actually cured it! My lungs finally sound clear and the breathing tests show that I can take deep, regular breaths unlike the shallow wheezing that had me glued to my inhaler all the time. There's no illness, nothing that I can't come to him with and not be embarrassed to talk to him about. I highly recommend Dr. Ostrowski to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, nice and kind doctor that provides real and fast results
Dr. Ostrowski was great. Excellent experience. Genuinely felt that he was looking after my best interests.
Highly recommanded. No waiting, great listening from the doctor to understand the issue.
I thoroughly enjoyed my visit .
Dr.Ostrowski was very caring, and thoughtful. He asked tons of questions very concerned about my health history. There was no wait, he was very helpful. I would definitely see him again. He was a generally a great guy, and I felt comfortable and that was interested in my issues.
Super kind doctor. I have been going to him for years after finding him on Zocdoc. He's one of the only doctors I've kept going to consistently in NYC as I've had a hard time finding good doctors here. Very knowledgeable and has helped me through my sleeping issues as well as other health issues as they've occured. His front staff is also very very sweet and supportive.
Just a great experience!
Dr. Ostrowski was excellent, very knowledgeable, and he asked a lot of in-depth questions to really get a sense of the problem. I will definitely be back to see him.
Nice and caring guy!
More interested in squeezing money out of your insurance than helping you.
Answered every question I had. Knew exactly what steps needed to be taken. And I was in and out. Will be going to him from here on out
Dr Ostrowski is a very professional Doctor.
Quick and easy process with nice doctor. Seemed a bit rushed when speaking but overall very good
He is a very nice and calm doctor.
Quick, to the point, no fuss. In and out in less than 30 minutes.
My visit was very professional.
Dr. Ostrowski is my go-to. He always ensures that I am getting the right help I need. He's extremely knowledgeable and I know I can trust him not only in treating my sleeping issues, but any other related health issues as well. Highly recommend!
He is the best. What else can I say? Obviously intelligent because classical music was playing in the waiting room. The man waiting across from me told me he had been seeing him 10 years and that he was the best docor. This was completely unprovoked by the way. He was not a know-it-all or adversarial in any way unlike other doctors. He was good humored and thorough. I am glad to have finally found a doctor I like.
Nice guy and knowledgeable.
Extremely thorough. Spent the session talking to and examining me instead of typing into a computer. Gave some excellent feedback.
He was very caring and offered a very personalized attention. He asked me to write him emails with the progress and he helped me through it
He is very thorough and listened to my concerns. Referred me to other doctors that helped me out as well.
Friendly and efficient.
Dr. Ostrowski has very personalized care and gives great individual attention. Really like him!
Nice guy, listened to me and understood. Good small talk.
He is an excellent doctor. Andrea Dillard.
He was very nice an very attentive...
Dr Ostrowski is extremely nice and caring. I fully recommend visiting this physician.
Dr. Ostrowski has great bedside manner, very personable and made me comfortable throughout my visit. He also makes receiving results, etc. very convenient for his patients.
Dr. Ostrowski is such a kind and patient person! He is warm and friendly and makes a trip to the doctor so much more pleasant. The wait is never long and I can tell he cares about his patients. He called himself once he got the results for the blood tests I take for my annual physical and gave me results for all categories. Very professional and kind doctor!
Extremely pleasant experience! Dr. Ostrowski inquired about any and all health issues and addressed each and every one of my concerns, no matter how small or bizarre. He also did not rush me at all, which I felt was quite rare. He was extremely friendly and I felt very comfortable. Really couldn't ask for more.
I didn't have to wait, and he not only took me seriously but we developed a rapport so quickly it felt like he had been my pcp for years
Dr. Ostrowski is a humble and prudent doctor. He addressed my concerns in a step by step manner.
Very professional !
Professional, thorough, efficient, and a personable bedside manner. I can't think of anything they could do better. Possibly the easiest medical experience I have ever had. Will recommend this doctor to everyone.
My visit today was very professional and tthrough. I have recommended Dr Ostowski to family and friends.
Very quick to see me and all my questions answered. Highly recommend.
Dr. ostrowski is a very sweet doctor. His mannerism made me feel comfortable and he truly listened to what was bothering me. He genuinely cares if I feel better.
Wait time was less than 15 minutes. Dr. Ostrowski was kind, sympathetic, and professional. Highly recommend.
Very nice, knowledgable and thorough. Great overall experience.
Last appt on a Friday. And I 100% feel like he was there for me and my concerns. New insurance, and even though he is out of my way I will totally come back whenever I need general care or respiratory care. Last time I felt this much kindness from a doctor was my family doctor as a child
The Dr. and staff were pleasant, thorough and courteous. I would recommend Dr. Ostrowski.
Has a great sense of humor, is very kind, and always very thorough. Again, will keep him as my primary care doctor and can't recommend him enough.
Most thorough I have ever had
Dr. Roman was EXTREMELY friendly, professional and attentive. I felt he went above and beyond what I went in for and would definitely see him again. The only downside is his office, very outdated and not so welcoming at first glance, but given the level of service I did not mind after the visit.
Outstanding, awesome Doctor
Very sweet and knowledgable doctor! He was able to suss out what my problems might be with my sleeping and focus issues and even took the time to do a full physical check-up (I came in on the weekend very early mind you - which is not the first choice time for anyone i'm sure), which I needed as well. Can't recommend him enough!
He took me in on the same day, within an hour! I had horrible sinus pain and a very bad, lingering cold. He asked for a thorough history, examined me, and gave me my meds. I feel better already.
Wait time is minimal. More importantly, Dr. Ostrowski is extremely intelligent and thorough. I am happy to have found him.
Dr. Ostroski was very informative and professional. I will certainly be going back to him.
Gave me antibiotics when I had the flu. I had the feeling he gave me medicine just so I felt like I was being "treated"
Best PCP I've been to in NYC, he took his time, was friendly, went through everything in detail, and even got me in to see a specialist the next day - who previously told me a 4 week wait. Definitely my new PCP, he's fantastic.
quick, and efficient in-n-out kinda guy with an old school attitude.
Great guy - busy, but extremely helpful.
Dr Ostrowski is a great doctor, asks the right questions to get to the problem and offer a solution
Dr Ostrowski is great! He is friendly makes you feel welcomed and is willing to answer any questions at all. I'm glad I found my Pcp!
Great. He texted me about my results which was a little too casual for my taste but it was extremely efficient. Very personable and makes you feel comfortable throughout the entire visit. Would recommend.
Always great. He's a professional and knows his stuff.
It was great. Dr. Ostowski was super nice. It just seemed like he needed more help. He was doing things the nurse would normally do.
Dr. Ostrowski was efficient, informative and pleasant. I highly recommend him.
I really like Dr. Ostrowski. He is a little scattered and preoccupied, but underneath that he is attentive and caring and matter of fact and takes time to address my questions if he can.
Roman was extremely friendly and accommodating with his time. I was impressed by my first visit here.
Very eficient and relaxed. I'd recommend to anyone who's looking for a primary care provider.
Very relaxed, and wanted to make me better. Great doc!
Dr Ostrowski was very friendly and saw me right away. I explained my symptoms and he knew what the problem was immediately. I felt safe in his care and he made sure I was well informed about what I should do next. I will definitely use him in the future.
Dr. Ostrowski was very thoughtful and professional. He really took the time to talk to me about how I was feeling and check physically as well.When he diagnosed me, he explained to me exactly what was happening so I understood the diagnosis, and he also fully explained the medication he was prescribing including all potential side effects, etc. I will definitely go back the next time I am ill.
Great bedside manner.
Dr. Ostrowski was very friendly and took me seriously. He ordered the necessary tests and I feel confident that he can help me.
Dr. Ostrowski is wonderful. Every appointment I had with him he as taken his time with me and listens to all my concerns. He has even called up a specialist for me to schedule an appointment. I feel like I am in good hands with him. Happy to have found him.
Jestem bardzo zadowolona
Dr. Ostrowski did a comprehensive and thorough examination of my medical condition, and provided me with his professional view of the matter, medication and recommendation - all of those at the rate that I can afford. The doctor used modern testing devices in his office, and despite Manhattan location, the cost was affordable. I also trust dr. Ostrowski's professional opinion, and I know that I can always visit his office again if I have another problem. I am fully satisfied with my visit, and I will recommend this doctor to my family members and friends.
Very impressed. Very little waiting, 10:30 appointment for a checkup, was out by 11, but it didn't feel rushed at all. He was very thorough, we set up a follow up visit regarding some chronic conditions (asthma related, for anyone else with asthma) and his bedside manner is excellent. Very friendly. It's been what feels like an endless search to find a decent doctor, and I'm very very glad I found Dr Ostrowski. Highly recommend.
Dr. Ostrowski was very genial and attentive and also very fast. No complaints!
He was great. Dr. Ostrowski is extremely professional and has taken care of me on several occasions. He goes above and beyond!
I think he is an excellent doctor! He does not rush patients. He is thorough and has always been very professional.
I've been with Dr. Ostrowski for a few years and since he already knows me, he makes it an easy process for me. I usually don't have to wait long. He is straight to the point and I'm in and out. Most of my appointments are follow ups but if you want to him to check up on something, he will give you the time. For this particular appointment, I arrived early and he saw me in less than five minutes of me waiting and I was done.
He was thorough, very informative and friendly! He showed his professionalism in all aspects
Fast, painless and very professional
Excellent. Dr. was thorough and made sure to do everything I needed to get well: no nonsense.
Wonderful Doctor with a great manner and calm. Timely and sage care and advice for a difficult day.
Dr. is Polish,but speaks perfect English. Very thorough; not in a rush. I will be sure to keep my follow up appointment.
Doc Ostrowski is very nice and professional.
He is attentive, considerate, and an overall great doctor.
The doctor was very nice and very quick, though I didn't feel rushed. He has a very nonchalant attitude that I really appreciate but might not be for everyone. Thoroughly enjoyed my experience though and he was very thorough.
Dr Ostrowski was very attentive and took his time with me. I didn't feel rushed and he made sure all my questions were answered before I left his office. He also gave me personal referrals for 3 specialists unlike other places that just give you a packet of papers with no guidance.
The office looks like it's from a Columbo TV show from the 80s but I didn't have to wait and Dr. Ostrowski was very nice and helpful. I had my blood tests done at his office and he called me three days later with the results. It was a very good experience.
Went in for a quick physical checkup. Very easy and doctor was relaxing and attentive to any questions I had.
Dr. Ostrowski is a little quirky, but he's very nice and he seems very intelligent. I believe I will make him my new primary gp.
Great doctor. No complaints!
I enjoyed my visit and I usually don't like going to the doctor
I really appreciate and enjoy Roman's manner of being, but recognize it may not be to everyone's taste. He seems a little disorganized and scatter-brained to the casual observer, but he is actually quite sharp-eyed, has a good sense of humor, very caring, takes time to answer questions, and asks a lot of questions too. His approach is more wholistic than the average physician's approach. Also, I hardly ever have to wait long. I enjoy this office and recommend Dr. Ostrowski.
dr ostrowski was kind knowledgeable and amazing. he's a wonderful physician that sought to my needs right away
Dr. Ostrowski is great, on the ball, personable, and takes his time with you. This was my first time seeing him so for my annual he sat me down, listened to my medical history/concerns, and then did a full exam. Will definitely go back!
Great all around.
While the wait was a while, I understand why, because he listens to his patients. After many issues over a while he asked enough questions to diagnose an underlying issue. I rarely have met a Dr so interested and wants to make sure you get better
He is a nice guy, but a little scatter brained. He needs to remember patients names and what they were talking about a moment before instead of jumping all over the place and forgetting his recommendations.
Dr Ostrowski is very kind and timely. Most often the wait is under 30 mins; once it was more than 30. Location is quite nice, office is clean, and he's always generally busy - a good sign.
Very kind and sweet
The doctor was fast, efficient, and had great bedside manner. He made me feel comfortable and relaxed the entire visit.
Sincere individual, thorough with his care, and easy to talk to. Highly recommend!
I've been going to him for the past two years. Today I needed a physical. He was okay but I felt rushed. That's my only issue. Everything else was good.
The receptionist was awfully rude. I asked her questions about my co-payment and she kept yelling at me "check your insurance card!!!!" even after I told her that there is no such information on my card and this is why I am asking you to check. She wouldn't bother but just yelled "then check your insurance document". I would not recommend anybody to deal with this mess.
I will be back for all of my medical needs. Everything was exactly what you would want from a primary care doctor.
He was great, he's an old fashion Doctor that we don't see or hard to find these days. He was all ears to my concerns.
Nice guy. A little scatterbrained but nice enough.
He is really great. He asked a lot of questions and really listened to me. He really cares about his patients.
It took a little bit to see the doctor but I was told that there was an emergency, and even other patients stated the wait was never like that before, so I understand. Doctor was so nice and understanding and open, definitely my new GP
Really great visit. Ostrowski was friendly and knowledgeable.
Very friendly and approachable. Answered all of my questions clearly with utmost professional manner.
Very great doc Resourceful and not rushed. Detailed and thorough!
The doctor made me feel comfortable He has a very pleasing and engaging manner of conversation and is very helpful.
Mr. Ostrowski was very nice and funny! He was patient and took the time to even educate me on sinus infections. I will definitely be going back to him :-)
it seem to me that he was rushing a bit.
Very straight forward and knowledgable. Easy to schedule with and pretty funny guy. He is now my regular Doctor.
This is who you want for your general physician. He's really attentive and seems genuinely concerned for my health whenever I've seen him. If he has to write a prescription, he is really careful to make sure he's giving you something with the fewest side effects possible and explains the prescription MUCH more carefully than most doctors I've encountered. I can't recommend him enough.
He is so great I am compelled to write my first review. First doctor I've ever had who genuinely seemed concerned about my health and not try to rush the appointment.
Very quick. A little scatter-brained and always seems to be alone most of the day, but no mishaps so far. Trusts his patients, and made me well again, so he does his job quite well. Very satisfied. Also discusses your health with you well, and if he doesn't know something, refers you to someone who should know.
The doctor and staff were friendly but I felt like I got the bare minimum level of attention during my consultation. I also had some blood work done and when I went to pick it up after 2 weeks was disappointed to learn the doctor had not looked at the results. The office itself is cash-only and do not offer any type of online portal for accessing any test results, which I found to be a bit out dated Overall the service was good and I felt like the doctor knew what he was doing.
He does not accept credit cards. He didnt address the reason for the appointment and did a referral to address only one of the symptoms.
Doesn't seem very serious about the appointments. I asked for a blood test and had to email repeatedly on the results. I still not have received any data. The most I got so far was a "they were good" response from his iphone...
Very good and thorough.
He was very polite, very good bedside manner. He helped me with my sinus infection, and even taught me a bit about what was going on inside my sinus. Evidently, in olden times pre-antibiotics, they would pierce your cheek with a needle to remove the...um...fluid? I am lucky enough not to have to undergo such a procedure. A fine doctor, 10/10 will see again.
It was very informative.
Dr. Ostrowski was nice and a great guy, however I had two problems with payments. 1) He charged me a copay for a physical despite the fact that my insurance does not require them for physicals. 2) He sent my bloodwork to an out of network lab so the full amount wasn't covered by my insurer.
Wait was short. Came in for swollen tonsils. He didn't do a culture test, but was sure it was tonsillitis. Medication cleared me up, but I still think he should've taken a culture.
Cute, outdated office. Long wait. Dr Ostrowski is friendly, knowledgeable and patient.
Dr Ostrowski is very nice and professional!
Dr. Ostrowski got me right in and got right to the point. Friendly with a humorous side and easy to be around.
He was very friendly and answered any questions I had. He also recommended different vaccines that I originally hadn't thought about getting prior to the appointment. Will definitely see him again!
Great visit. Gave sound advice and comfortable from the start.
Easy going, comfortable doctor. Very professional
DR. Ostrowski was great. He was very quick but thorough. He made me feel comfortable and was very kind.
He was great. And I have lots of fear about going to the doctor.
Very nice and helpful
He was great, very knowledgable and thorough. Waited to be seen for about 15 mins after my appointment time.
Excellent. A small office, with no frills, but it's cozy and friendly and it was a refreshing touch that the Doctor saw me himself and performed tests himself, without a nurse. The Doctor seemed very knowledgable, and was very kind. He was able to figure out what was going on with me and have me on my way in a breeze without any issues. I'll see him again.
Very caring and polite.
Very efficient and nice.
I have given blood ~30 times. This was the first time that my vein was punctured, inducing a hematoma and pain. It seemed somewhat careless. Furthermore, for my first visit to an MD in the U.S., I was surprised at how many other things I was pushed into performing (allergy tests, unnecessary sampling of additional blood data beyond my primary reason around the standard STD check). Roman Ostrowski's manner is good, but I was not comfortable with the actual work.
Super friendly staff and doctor . He is my new doctor for everything!!!!!!!
Dr. Ostrowski is great. He's very personable and friendly. Literally the kind of guy you'd love to grab a beer with. Definitely recommend him.
Dr. Ostrowski was terrific. He is intelligent, thoughtful and down to earth. I went to see him just for a pre-operation physical, but I am going to continue going back to him as my primary care doctor.
Fantastic doctor and warm, wonderful staff.
Really nice guy, really professional, very efficient - what a great visit to the doctor. Highly recommend!
Great doctor. A little hurried though, still had questions to ask!
Dr. Ostrowski was very thorough and competent. He was easy going, but still professional. Overall, he is a good doctor. His office could use updating.
Went here as a new patient and was very impressed with Dr. Ostrowski!
He was very professional, nice, and madee Very comfortable.
It was ok
Helpful, knowledgeable, efficient, and very pleasant!
I had a full physical. He was very friendly and professional and took his time to get to know my medical history.
Office seemed out of date and unprofessional, but I was happy that the doctor worked directly with me from the time he got me from the waiting room. The consultation felt rushed and he never confirmed any official diagnosis, but quickly provided me with solutions.
It was pretty good, the doc was very nice and courteous. My only concern or area of improvement would just be his ability to relay EXACTLY what was wrong. He was a bit laissez-faire during the visit.
Dr. Ostrowski was very easy going and had a very efficient manner about him. He made me seem a little rushed, but he was helpful in quickly diagnosing me and getting me the prescription I needed.
Excellent, conscientious primary care physcian. Very satisfied with my visit and would highly recommend to anyone. Asks thoughtful questions and does most of the work himself instead of offloading you to a nurse or clinic. Just like the good old days...
He was a nice guy, very helpful, and makes you comfortable asking questions you might now want to.
Professional, informative, Friendly, and helpful.
He was really nice and seemed very capable. I had a nasal issue and he screened me for asthma just as a precaution. We didnt really figure out the problem but he gave me several options on how to proceed. He also had illustrations to help me understand what was happening. However I felt like I didnt explain my symptom too well because I wasnt really asked the right questions- I had congestion, but we were kind of discussing runny nose the majority of the time. Everyone in the office was nice. I would probably go directly to specialists in the future for specific issues.
Will make a followup appointment in February upon return to NY.
As soon as I sat down with Dr. Ostrowski he began asking questions about me and how I was feeling, immediately gave me a few referrals and had me do a few test right in his office before I left, (allergy scratch test, breathing test & one other I forgot what was for). It was a great visit, best I have ever had. His staff is great and I didn't wait long at all.
Great. Personable, attentive, and happy to explain everything. Takes his time, but in a good way.
Friendly. Professional. No wait. What's not to like?
Dr. Ostrowski takes his time with his patients. He asks and answers as many questions as you need. He is a knowledgeable doctor with much experience. The only negative, was having to wait about 40 minutes to be seen. Nevertheless, I know it is because he took his time with the prior patient and did the same with me.
The staff were generally nice and Dr. Roman couldn't get be friendly and comforting. It was like chatting with an old bud!
Great, no complaints. Nice guy and pretty much no wait despite being first time patient
Dr. Ostrowski is absolutely fantastic! He knows his stuff and made me feel comfortable. I hate going to the doctors, but I will look forward to going from now on. WOULD RECOMMEND FOR SURE!
Wonderful doctor and delightful, sweet staff.
Nice guy. Didn't feel rushed. Nice staff.
Just great-- such friendly staff, too!
Great doctor. Would book again and recommend to friends.
He was open and available on Saturday morning. Answered my questions and provided the information and medical guidance I was seeking. Very informative and I would go back to him in the future.
Pleasant and receptive. He answered all my questions thoroughly. I recommend him.
He wasn't able to help me with my request - but he kept me there talking for a while, and I really just wanted to be on my way.
Very friendly and no wait to see the doctor. Would definitely recommend going here. As another reviewer said it's cash only but no big deal.
Dr. Ostrowski was very professional, and I greatly appreciated his care. He took the time to provide the extra tests he thought I should have right there in the office, asking me if I had the time to wait around for them instead of him being too busy and asking to reschedule. His office isn't the most modern, but he is great.
I honestly don't know why he doesn't have more patients or maybe I met him on a very slow day. He was immediately attentive. His assistant was running late and he took care of me the moment I arrived. He listened to my issue and checked every possible cause. Let's see if this changes at my follow up in two weeks. I definitely recommend him
Very nice, thorough, and attentive.
Not terrible. He was gunning pretty hard to become my pulmonologist, which wasn't at all related to the point of my visit.
don't accept cards, seriously?
He was great!
It went very smoothly, the doctor was friendly and good about making me feel comfortable with the experience. The best part was that he really took the time to examine me and explain everything fully. Even though I just had food poisoning, he was sure to treat me with respect and to ensure that I understood everything that he was doing and what the situation was regarding my illness, rather than rushing and trying to get to other patients as quickly as possible, though he also didn't waste my time by belaboring any points. Great experience, I will be going back.
Very glad I chose Dr. Ostrowski as my PCP, he's very personable and professional. Would recommend to everyone.
Nice guy, small office but clean. He was professional. Will go back again.
He was FANTASTIC and is now my new primary care doctor
Dr. Ostrowski is incredibly thorough, experienced and listens well to patient concerns.
Very straightforward, un-rushed practitioner. Asks good questions, listens well, and has an easy sense of humor. Would recommend in particular for young, generally healthy clients looking for a doctor in the city that they don't necessarily need to form a life-long bond with. Not that you couldn't, I'm sure, but this is how I have been using Dr. Ostrowski and it works very well for me. Your mileage may vary.
easy, informative and quick!
I thought this went very well. The Doc answered my questions and I didnt wait very long.
Fantastic doctor. Very sweet staff!
Great Visit. Nice doctor and kind staff.
The examination room had a sharps bin that had the cover removed and it was overflowing with needles (some covered with a rubber protective tip, some not) and tubes that still had blood in them. Overflowing. Right next to the sink. The doctor also tried to refer me to another doctor friend for a problem that I said (repeatedly) I didn't have.
great doctor , very nice and friendly .the staff is great too .I am happy I found such a great md in the city
Needed to refill a prescription for medication I've been taking for 5+ years. This doctor basically told me he doesn't like prescribing it and to take my business elsewhere.
Very helpful and the Rx prescribed took care of my problem.
good, polite, standard but clean
Very helpful, explained every test that we did and why also all the possibilities. Very kind, gentle and informative. I loved his bedside manner and for the first time in EVER I didn't even feel the needle while he was taking blood. YAY Dr. Ostrowski.
Very attentive and even gave me a sample of the script I needed!
While I liked him and thought he was generally knowledgable, I went for an annual physical and felt that it was much too rushed. He cut me off every time I tried to speak and made it impossible for me to describe the issues I've had as well as family history. He only let me get in a response to two questions and since it was my first time there, I don't feel that he got any information that he could make a valid diagnosis off of. He just kept saying I was very healthy which was good to hear but hard to believe when he didn't really know anything about my history. He kept trying to rush me out the door after my brief exam and I had to stop him three separate times to explain that I need refills on prescriptions and to ask him for his advice on vaccinations for an upcoming trip overseas. Might go back if I'm really sick since it's close to my apartment but in terms of a physical, I would go somewhere more thorough.
Great Dr. Made me feel exceptionally comfortable and was very thorough. And the receptionist was an absolute doll.
I made my first appointment with Dr Ostrowski as I had terrible stomach pain and was looking for a doctor near my place. He was very attentive and professional and noticed straight away that something was seriously wrong with me. He sent me quickly to ER as he suspected that I needed urgent surgery and he was right. I am very grateful to him as my situation could have gotten worse if I had waited any longer. His staff followed-up with me after the operation to make sure everything went well - as the hospital never contacted them - which I really appreciated too.
When visiting w/Dr. Ostrowski you have his undivided attention. If a referral is needed he gives you the best doctor for the concern being addressed.
He is great, always seen right away and he is thorough and fun.
Kept looking at his computer screen while talking to me. The only good thing out of this appointment was that he gave me the refills on the meds that I needed. They do not accept credit cards so make sure you have cash or check.
This appointment went very smoothly!
Friendly, thorough, efficient. I will be using Dr. Ostrowski as my primary care doc going forward.
All my visits at Dr. Ostrowski's office were pleasant. He and his staff are very friendly, thoughtful and they make you feel comfortable. Highly recommended!
nice person - he seemed a bit rushed
I liked Dr. Ostrowski very much. He seems very experienced and knowledgable. He was a bit harried on the day I visited him, but still maintained an inner calm, and asked a lot of questions, and was already thinking ahead about things I had planned to ask him. He showed concern for my well being without being sentimental, and was very efficient.
Very very friendly. Made me feel comfortable right away. Would definitely recommend Dr. Ostrowski.
Dr. Ostrowski was great! He didn't waste any time once I got in to see him, was thorough in his evaluation, and was very professional.
Very positive - they took me even though I was running 25 mins late!
Scheduled a very last minute appointment with Dr. Ostrowski (made a 9:30am appointment at 6am the same day) and couldn't be more satisfied. The office confirmed the appointment by 8am. Dr. Ostrowski was thorough, attentive and had a great bedside manner. I'll be going back to see him next time I need to see a doctor.
Very good and quick service.
I was very happy with my first visit to see Dr. Ostrowski. Him and his staff were very friendly and accommodating. He listened carefully and I didn't feel rushed like I have in the past with other doctors.
Dr. was nice enough, but didn't make eye contact with me. Also, they only take cash/check here.
Roman was very nice and his staff was as well. It was nice to make an appt on Saturday night for Monday morning and have it confirmed by 8AM by this office staff. They also saw me within 15 minutes. The only thing is he was kind of vague about my illness but then again it was most likely a flu which is hard to define. he gave me a prescription for Z pack and wrote me a doctor's letter to be out of the office sick for 2 days. very nice man and quick but not rushed.
Tremendously great doctor, patient, very kind, very practical--would highly highly recommend.
He is super nice and friendly & so is his staff; the waiting room is comfortable.
Excellent doctor. No wait time at all. Very professional and patient. Very sweet nurse/receptionist as well.
Absolutely fantastic. Made an appt for 9:30am but called the day before to see if they could accomodate me earlier and they did. Such a thorough doctor, answers all my questions patiently and thoughtfully. Clearly knows his stuff. Highly recommend.
Very friendly and informative! Helped me understand my illness.
Made an appt at 5:30am due to an emergency-- the office called me right at 8 to accommodate me at 9:30. Very professional staff. Doctor is truly caring-- highly recommended!
Doctor Roman Ostrowski was very considerate an helpful. He listened to me and worked with me to find a treatment that worke for me.
He was great, very Intelligent guy and easy to talk to. Felt like a friend right away. I highly Recommend him. Oh and his staff was cool too, there was the 'family' vibe in the office.
It was my first time visit.Very good impression.
Great doctor, I would highly recommended
Very nice and very professional. I really felt like he cared about me and my issues when he examined and talked to me. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family.
Usually my visits to doctors are accompanied by frightening feelings and guilt for my unhealthy lifestyle. Doctor Ostrowski put me totally at ease with his prudent rationality and unexpected congeniality. Quite a rare find in a city full of capitalists in a rush.
Very good doctor. Sharp mind. Nice personality.
I actually made this appointment for my husband, but he tells me that the visit was fine.
Good doctor. On my first visit, went above and beyond what I needed (a referral) to give me some additional preventative tests and care. Will be seeing him from now on.
Very kind, helpful. He was professional yet familiar in a way that put me at ease. I felt that he was very happy to be helping me out, and though he was quick to work with me I did not at all feel rushed.
I am so glad. I was able to b seen right away, what a Service!,. The Doctor
very comfortable office, great doctor: smart and sincere.
Saw me right away...was so sick I came in on the wrong day but he treated me anyway! Office is a bit dated looking and everyone speaks Russian.
Great intentions I believe, and very nice, but he was not very thorough. He never even took my temperature, and took a fleeting glance at my throat.
Very efficient visit. On time, no waiting, just had to fill out half a page of info, hand them my insurance ID and the Doc accompanied me to the exam room. Annual physical took 30 minutes.
Excellent and one of the most caring doctors I have seen. Would recommend highly!
I am very satisfied with each visit. Doctor Ostrowski is a very nice man, fully participating in your problem with careful patience and the expertise. The friendly office staff will try to work you in the same day for urgent appointments.
The waiting room and particularly the exam room was not modern, a little shabbier (don't want to say dirty, as he did use proper sterile techniques when drawing blood) and more disorganized than I would prefer. Before the Doc came in, I was thinking, "yeah... I won't be coming back here" based on the condition of the room. But he was indeed very nice and took time to talk and ask questions. So. Not sure if I'd be going back, but he did seem good and I also noticed some other patients who were very happy to see him.
He's pretty funny for a doctor, and thorough. The waiting room and examination rooms aren't very modern or professional.
Dr. Ostrowski is passionate about his profession which makes me feel taken care of when I visit him.
He is great and he makes me laugh when I don't feel well.
good doctor and very good at explaining things....
Very nice,understandable,professional,great doctor, I would recomend him to everybody.
Pleasant visit! Bit of a wait late morning on a Thursday. One or two patients in prior to me. Dr. Ostrowski was thorough and direct. I was a new patient and the staff moved quickly to handle paperwork. In and out in under an hour. Booking the appointment via ZocDoc was a breeze. Every doctor should be on it.
Couldn't be any better. Dr. Ostrowski was extremely friendly, polite and prompt. I appreciate his knowledge and care.
excellent. genuinely interested in the patient, takes his time, no rush, very thorough.
Classic, family doctor approach...what a doctor should be. A rare find in NYC!
He was very nice and thoughtful. Took his time with me and listened.
Nice guy and explains everything
Great Doctor! Haven't been to a Doctor in years and made me feel very comfortable. Would recommend.
Extremely professional and understanding. Very easy to talk to. A good listener and good at explaining. He put me at ease despite my quite embarrassing condition.
Dr. Ostrowski is very very thorough and professional and very friendly. I was sick and needed an emergency appointment. he was available and made me feel assured and cared for.
Dr. Ostrowski went above and beyond for me, I have never had a Dr. who took so much time out of his schedule or actually TREAT me!! Amazing.
Overall the doctor is good, but the clinic is very poor when it comes to returning phone calls
very professional and friendly
I found this practice only because it was the closest to my house and I was too sick to go anywhere I was recommended to go. The experience was fun actually! :) The doctor was very caring and talkative and I felt very comfortable. They where in the middle of renovations however so it was a bit messy in the office. Lots of love tho. Best part is that I already feel better as promised after a shot (with a biiiig needle that made me faint).
He's a very good doctor, I would recommend him because he shows concern.
This doctor is very service oriented. Good guy!
Very friendly and thorough in investigating a discrepancy he found in my blood pressure. He called a specialist acquaintance of his to verify his diagnosis which was very helpful. I had to subtract for the wait time because he apparently doesn't block out his unavailable time slots on Zocdoc and just overbooks, so I waited 30 min to be seen. Very satisfied.
Dr. Ostrowski was friendly, efficient and he had a very scientific manner about him which inspires confidence.
Very polite, professional, and saw me right away. Didn't try to convince me to start seeing him as a PCP either, which was something I would have expected.
I was pleasantly surprised to see this doctor for the very first time. He came in to the office with such an up beat demeanor. I mistakenly booked a time to see him when his office was closed and he made time to see me anyway. He was very informative and very thorough in the examination. He was not quick to judge and make a diagnosis without proof. Overall a very good experience.
FANTASTIC. wonderful doctor!
