Verified Patient Reviews
Exceptionally attentive, great communication skills and engagement.
Very impressed with Dr Cannizzo's thoroughness, he cross references every bit of detail and data, you leave knowing you have seen a professional who really cares for your all round health...
Great experience, great information great everything all around.
Very professional and personable.
I felt like he asked a lot of questions, not only about what's going on physically but in my life as well - that's a good thing, and feels like a more holistic approach. The office itself is really nice, up-to-date, and clean.
Very Thorough and takes his time.
Dr. Cannizzo was very pleasant and professional. He took the time to really explain things and made sure that I didn't have any unanswered questions. The offices were clean and the staff was friendly.
It was an awesome experience. I was seen promptly. Everyone at the office was extremely friendly. Dr. Cannizzo was very thorough and patient while going through all my concerns.
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 want to 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.
Dr. Cannizzo was very thorough and while he did not necessarily have the answer to what was causing my ailment, he ran several blood tests to try to get to the root of the problem. Wait time was a bit long, but the office is clean and new.
Super friendly, thoughtful, thorough doctor. Looking forward to my next appointment.
Great! He is very thorough. Excellent bedside manners.
Very patient and helpful with all my questions. Highly recommend doctor Cannizzo to anyone looking for a new doctor!
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 continue my 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.
Very friendly staff with great professional advice. The doctor was very patient with me when I was asking questions about immunizations and travel shots as well as calling my insurance company to make sure they were covered. Highly recommend!!
Professional, thorough, comprehensive Would recommend Dr Cannizzo
Had a great experience with Dr. Cannizzo and the entire Mt. Sinai team. Will certainly look to make Dr. Canizzo my GP.
Awesome doctor and staff will definitely be coming back!
Office was new and clean. Dr Cannizzo spent a long time diligently and thoroughly addressing all my questions and concerns. Never felt rushed at any point. Very down to earth and definitely knows his stuff. Very responsive and detailed with my test results.
Dr. Cannizzo and his assistant were extremely helpful and efficient. Highly recommend!
Dr. Cannizzo's office is very clean, neat and professional. Clara, at the front desk, was very welcoming and assisted me with getting started. Dr. Cannizzo was very professional and warm. I felt like he was caring for a friend and not a patient.
Dr. Cannizzo is easy to talk to, straightforward, clear and professional. Will be using him as my new general practitioner.
I found a gem in the heart of NYC!!!!!! I hope this can be my primary care doctor for many years to come.
the Doctor and his staff were very thorough. The Doctor answered all my questions as well as did all the necessary testing. I will definitly recomend Doctor Cannizzo to my coworkers.
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 they make 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.
Great staff wonderful doctor Thank you !!!
Great Dr. Long wait but super nice guy, would recommend!
He is amazing!!! The nicest DR I have ever met. Takes his time with you, makes sure to take the extra step in knowing you are okay. Very thorough. I highly recommend!
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 a prescription 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.
Visit was excellent and it was good to be able to bring Dr. C up to date on my health.
He was great. Very attentive and thorough.
Dr. Cannizzo was thorough, asked me a ton of questions, and made sure that I understood the prognosis and potential side-effects of the medication I was being prescribed. He seems like a really genuine doctor, and his staff was incredibly friendly as well.
Absolutely one of the best experiences with doctors. Dr Salvatore is so professional and nice. He pays attention to a lot of details and really cares the patient.
Dr Cannizzo was excellent, he listened closely to everything I told him and provided various nuanced suggestions for treatment and diagnosis. Would highly recommend!
I had one of the best experiences I've ever had with a NYC doctor with Salvatore today. He was thorough, took his time and seemed engaged with all of concerns and questions. I would gladly go back to him and recommend him for others.
He was great. The nurse and the office manager were both very nice. He took his time and made sure he understood everything. The time I waited before seeing him was 40 mins but worth it.
I visited Dr. Cannizzo for a physical, my first appointment with him. I was pleased with his attention to detail, thoughtful reaction, and effective responses to my questions. He is a pleasant and welcoming doctor.
Went in for an annual physical. Very nice staff and Dr. Cannizzo has a great, straightforward approach and manner. I’m a person who’s prone to a bit of doctors office anxiety but I felt comfortable the whole time. Nice and clean office. Recommend this doctor highly.
Dr. Cannizzo was great! He was very friendly and very thorough. I would recommend him to my family and friends.
I highly recommend this Dr Cannizzo. Thorough medical examination within minutes of scheduled appointment time.
Dr. Cannizzo is amazing. He is the most thoughtful doctor I’ve ever had, aside from my pediatrician. You never feel rushed or like just another patient. He takes the time to chat through how you’re feeling, thoroughly exam, and then make reasonable and informed diagnoses. Not to mention that the whole staff is extremely friendly. I go to the doctor more often than most people, so trust and comfort ability is very important to me. At my previous primary, I would never see the doctor, only the PA. I always felt slight judgement when I went in for things and that I wasn’t being heard. I’m so happy I found Dr. Cannizzo and feel relieved that I’m in good hands. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone!
Very quick, no wait time. Dr was friendly, professional and very tuned in to all details I was giving. I was impressed.
Had a visit for annual check up; first time visit to this doctor. Dr. Salvatore is knowledgeable and caring doctor and is a patient listener.
Staff was courteous and pleasant and Dr. Cannizzo listened, discussed and made me feel comfortable being there. He is both caring and professional. Highly recommend the service!
Everyone was very friendly. My appointment was for 9am and I was seen right away. Dr Cannizzo answered any questions I had, explained everything well and offered recommendations.
Dr Cannizzo was great. He was friendly and easy to talk to. He made sure we covered off all the areas I wanted to discuss in an efficient manner. I would recommend him to others.
I feel comfortable, relax while interacting with Dr. Salvatore.
Salvatore was great provided excellent recommendations. I would highly suggest him.
Dr Cannizzo was professional, thorough, and efficient. I was seen immediately (despite arriving early since it was my first appointment), and his staff was incredibly polite and helpful. Dr Cannizzo took plenty of time to understand my symptoms and explained all of the different steps we could take based on his diagnosis. I have been trying to find a new GP I like and I will definitely be returning to him.
Dr. Cannizzo was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about my condition. He also took the time to listen to my concerns and did not rush me out the door like I have experienced with other doctors.
Amazing doctor. Highly recommend!
Imagine how would be your perfect primary doctor. That's how exactly Doctor Cannizzo is!
Dr. Cannizzo is thorough and takes his time. He gives a detailed explanation and takes time to answer questions. He has a very nice manner.
The whole experience was seamless, and the staff was extremely friendly. Dr. Cannizzo made me feel welcomed. He was very attentive and kind. Will definitely be going back for my regular check in's!
It was my first time coming here and he was incredible! He was so easy to talk to and all of the nurses were so nice. I immediately got the attention I needed, as well as a super fast referral. I'll definitely be making Dr. Cannizzo my regular doctor.
Dr. Cannizzo was so friendly and really listened to what was going on with me. The appointment was very efficient, which is always nice when you're not feeling well!
He's hands down one of the best and easiest to talk to.
Patient, nice, and super helpful. Did not rush the appointment at all. He even took the extra step in calling his colleague at Mt.Sinai West to see me later in the day to assess a potential emergency situation.
I had my first-ever appointment with Dr. Cannizzo today, and man, he is a gem. So kind, so smart, so warm. He made me feel like he had all the time in the world for me, like he would sit there for five hours if that’s how long it took to answer my questions. On top of that, his staff is lovely, and the office is brand-new and impeccably clean. Five enthusiastic stars! ??????????
Extremely nice, welcoming, smart & caring!
Dr. Cannizzo was extremely professional, and attentive in his care. He asked deliberate questions that evoked purposeful responses that I felt provided him with an understanding of the kind of care I required. He's very strategic in his approach, yet gentle and spent the appropriate amount of time with me to gain an understanding of my needs. I'm grateful to have found a good doctor.
Dr. Cannizzo was very professional and thorough. The offices were very nice, everyone was polite, and I felt taken care of. The wait time was a little longer than I hoped for but Dr. Cannizzo stopped by to apologize and didn't take it lightly. Overall I'm glad I found a new doctor close to home!
