I went in for an annual checkup, with my wife, and explained briefly what was making me feel not so well. Dr. Cannizzo didn't mind the presence of my wife, asked me a bunch of questions to get to the bottomof everything, addressed all my concerns with full attention and checked for minor detail things that I couldn't even think about at the time. He examined my body head to toe for moles (I have plenty), and other basic physical exams, ordered a blood test, and we chatted about family history. He recommended specialists that can address my problems and did it without pushing anything, or anyone I wouldn't feel comfortable about. Some doctors ignore some of your problems, or tell you that you are actually feeling something else, but not this guy. Great doctor! He is now my primary care doctor in my new health care plan.

The wait was non-existent. The office was clean and very organized! The staff was quick, diligent, and very personable. Dr. Cannizzo was SO diligent and really went out of his way to help me with my upcoming trip to South America.I came in to just request altitude pills and walked out knowing that I'm WAY more prepared than I was prior to walking in. Had such a pleasant and great experience.

Dr. Cannizzo made my short list of 5 doctor's who accepted my insurance. His office staff was by far the most professional when I called for information (which is why I choose him). When I went for my first appointment (yearlyphysical) I found a very modern, clean office with a great staff. The doctor was amazing (for me just the right age - not to young and not to old). Very knowledgeable, relaxed and friendly. Was super happy I choose Dr. Cannizzo as my new internist. Highly recommend him.

Dr. Cannizzo was very attentive and thorough. I had to go on a business trip in a few days after my appointment and he arranged an important procedure for me on the same afternoon. He was very caring and didn’t wantto take any chances before I got on the plane and travel to a foreign country before he had the results from my procedure. I’m recommending him to my husband and my close friends.

I do not recommend this doctor. 1. They forgot about me, so I had to wait in the check-up room for over an hour. 2. The whole point of my appointment was to find a primary care physician who can continuemy maintenance medication I have been on for years. First, the doctor implied I should go off my medication (that has been working or 5+ years), because "I don't want to be on it my whole life. Thanks doc, I'm just picking and choosing when to have mental illness. You're right... it's just phase. No, my entire family has mental illness, and I will never accept being shamed for needing anxiety/depression medication from a professional. 3. I had to remind the doctor at the end of my appointment that I needed medication called in. Still, the doctor never called in the medication I needed. Once I ran out, I had to call the emergency hotline two different times, which was an ordeal in itself to try to justify why I needed my meds and explain the incompetent behavior. 4. I was also supposed to see a skin doctor at the practice. I called to cancel, because the lady at the front desk told me, "Don't worry, he's really quick." Not what I want to hear about a dermatologist checking each mole for skin cancer? Anyways, I called the hotline again, because no one was picking up the phone at the office. The hotline person said they would cancel the appointment. They didn't, and it now showed up in my file as a missed appointment. 5. I have already called twice to get my medication sent to my mail order and requested it at the appointment. It has not been sent in. I call today, during their "office hours". Phone just rings and rings, then my call is dropped.

The staff are super friendly and gentle. Dr. Cannizzo himself is very gentle and explained very thoroughly what he thought my conditions were. I didn’t feel rushed like I do at literally every other NYC doctors office (times money and theymake it very clear you’re just ushered in and out to pay their rent). Will be seeing Dr. Cannizzo as my regular doctor going forward. Plus the office is extremely clean and well decorated— newly built in March 2017 they said.

Dr. Cannizzo is a very thoughtful doctor. I am a new patient and made an appointment for a fever, aches and cough. The doctor was thorough in his exam and quickly determined I had the flu. He immediately called in aprescription so I didn't have to wait at the pharmacy for it. He asked that I keep him posted on my recovery. Overall, this doctor knows his stuff and is excellent at explaining conditions. Plus, his bedside manner is wonderful -- kind and calm. He was very patient during my visit and took the time to answer ALL of my questions. I didn't feel rushed at all. More importantly, I felt reassured.
