About Dr. Stuart L. Saftchick

As a general internist, and primary care physician, I place emphasis on a comprehensive approach to the patient as an individual and view illness in terms of its relation to the entire body- as opposed to specialists who view an illness in terms of only the organ system they treat. If there is something going on in your body that I am not sure about, I know the right people who can take care of the problem, and will refer accordingly.

When you finally receive good customer service you wonder when you gave up expecting it. Dr Saftchick's office renewed and refreshed my PCP experience. And less than a 30 minute wait for the last appointment of the day is unheard of in my experience.

For urine sample they gave me a paper cup from the water cooler and told me to write my name on it, and leave it open on the table after I was done. When I went to pay my copay, theytold me they don’t take credit card or FSA card, only cash. When I asked for an itemized receipt, they gave me a hand-written one from a store-bought receipt book, with only the amount, nothing else.

Without hesitation, and as a relatively new patient, I would recommend this office - both the doctor and the staff. One is made to feel warmly welcomed, appreciated and cared for by all - from the front desk to the back office. I am delighted to have found this practice.

Terrible! I waited nearly 2 hours only to be told they didn't have the shot i needed. I had made an appointment but he takes walk-ins too and ignores appointment times. Very rude! i was given test results from 2 monthsago that I had already received, but clearly the doctor forgot he had already given them to me. Since those tests i had started new medications. i tried to tell the doctor the new medications I was on but he didn't care, did not update the chart or anything and then to add insult to injury he asked me to miss shool again to go up to his Bronx office the next day and get my shot there. of course i didn't want to waste another half day so i got a new doctor! One that actually takes my medical condition seriously and keeps updates from specialist treatments i receive! Also the blood work he ordered was incomplete and did not include the detailed tests I am supposed to have every month. never again!!

The office staff are friendly although a little talkative (maybe to much). They talk to much at some point one of the girls of the desk lost one of the patient's insurance. Overall it was a good experience with the doctorwho seem interested in what was I saying, he asked a lot of question and I think that makes a good doctor. However the wait time was horrible, unbelievable and ridiculous. I had my appointment at 4:30pm and I saw the doctor at 6:10pm.

He does not take you seriously...or atleast me anyway..I mean he maybe good, he has great manners but I felt that he wasnt truly listening to me and my needs. I changed PCPs and could not be happier that I foundsome one else to be my physician. Thank you zocdoc!

He's a very concern Doctor. He listen to your complaints very carefully and repeats to make sure he understood what you said. He sits down with you in his office to discuss with you the plan to get you back into health and he is very nice and polite.

He talks to you like you are a person, not just another patient he wants to get rid of as quickly as possible. This is a rare thing among GPs in Manhattan.

I guess u have to build a relationship with the doc. As a new client I would of thought he would ask more questions about my health. Not to sure if I'm going to stay with him. I had doctors be a Little more concern.

Doctor was good but wait was over an hour. Would probably not go again as it seemed like a lot of the patients were waitlists and the office didn't do a great job managing booking times.
