She was welcoming and helped me explain exactly what was wrong. She gave me a clear treatment plan and referrals if I need to follow up. I waited in a massage chair for about 10 minutes, but didn't mind!

I have never, ever met someone as professional, thorough, knowledgeable and friendly as Dr. Kogan. I am 53 years old, and have met many doctors in my lifetime. She says what she means and she follows through on everything soquickly! When I went to the pharmacy to pick up my prescription, the pharmacist assistant said to me, “You are with Dr. Kogan?Everybody loves Dr. Kogan!”

Such a great visit! First, the office is so quiet and clean with many seats in the beautiful and clean waiting room. I needed to see a doctor for a bad cold/flu and she had availability right away! She listened tomy concerns and I was in and out in a fashionable time. Her bedside manner made me feel like I was in great hands and I left with a prescription and a follow up appointment to do a full check up in the coming weeks! I highly recommend Doctor Kogan!

Finally I have found a doctor that is caring and personable. Dr. Kogan is alway pleasant and explains things in a simple manner- I had a blood test and instead of having to call and leave messages for results-Dr. Kogan calledme herself and left messages on my voicemail to call back-Not once, but until she was able to reach me. When we did finally touch base, she spent time on the phone talking and explaining each area I needed to adjust in my diet and through medication. When I returned for another appointment-Dr. Kogan repeated her method and called me leaving voicemails on 2 different occasions. She is honest with her opinions and always amicable. My two year search is finally over. I can't recommend Dr. Kogan enough.

Very nice, very competent! Took her time to answer all of my questions and get a history about me before treating me. Would definitely go back! There was a bit of a wait to see the doctor but it was becausethere was an emergency. Everyone was very kind about it, and did as much as they could to make those waiting feel comfortable.

Not only did she not recommend anything above and beyond what a standard doctor would, she also failed to deliver my test results before leaving down. She has no receptionist or other doctors in her practice to fill in while she'saway. So...I just have to go see another doctor now.

This was the best experience I've ever had with a primary care doctor. She was so through. She took blood work there (for a small feel), checked my lungs and did an EKG, as well as the standard stuff. She reallylistened to what I had to say and was so friendly. Her waiting room even had a massage share!

DO NOT GO HERE. This is one of the worst doctor visits I have ever had. I waited for over half an hour before seeing Dr. Kogan for about 5 minutes. She did not check anything about me except my weight.Then she wrote me a prescription for something that she does not believe in. She gave me a speech about how I should not take this medicine before writing the prescription. Then over a month later, I am still getting calls from her staff that my insurance will not cover my visit. They want to charge me the full price for the visit. I have been on the phone with my insurance about 6 times now and they continue to tell me that they will cover it. To deal with insurance issues, Dr. Kogan has a completely miserable 70-year old woman who says everything like she is attacking you. I have never been treated in such an unfair and undignified manner. Dr. Kogan may be knowledgeable, but her staff is garbage - so so rude! ALSO, if you look up Doctor Kogan, you will find reports of insurance fraud. Stay away from here!

Dr. Kogan was so warm and friendly as was the receptionist! Was greeted with a warm, friendly smile from both. I had written about my symptoms on zoc doc ahead of time and the receptionist actually read it and called meto discuss preparations for my upcoming appointment. Dr. Kogan also read my file before meeting with me. I did not feel rushed at all and I loved that she has Saturday hours. I highly recommend Dr. Kogan!

I picked Dr. Kogan because she a) took my insurance and b) already had great reviews. I'm VERY happy I chose her because she was the friendliest and most professional doctor I've had thus far in NYC and I've already gonethrough 2 other primary care physicians. I'll be moving from Hell's Kitchen to Tribeca, but I have every intention to keep her as my doctor. The reviews about her on ZocDoc aren't lies. She really is awesome. She just had this very positive aura. She was warm, friendly, and informative and I really enjoyed meeting her.

I have had issues with the previous doctor's office I went to (for too many years) and was thoroughly pleased by my first visit with Dr. Kogan! While there was a wait [she had mentioned when she first saw me, 20min after my appointment time, that Saturdays are crowded days], the receptionist was wonderful and answered my many questions. When it was time to see Dr. Kogan, was was very warm. I was surprised that she did everything -- took the vitals, did my physical, drew blood, etc. She also really took the time to get to know me and my background. I recommend her to anyone!

The experience with Dr. Kogan was unfortunately not a good one due to what I see as false advertising. I booked the appointment with her on Zocdoc, where she claimed to accept Aetna Insurance (this has since been changed to notbe the case on Zocdoc after my repeated calls to them on the matter). When I arrived in office, there was not clear communication on the fact that she was OUT OF NETWORK, even though they checked my insurance card. In my opinion, this should be clearly communicated by any doctor's office anywhere, rather than taking large payments from people who otherwise have perfectly valid insurance. After all has been said and done, I'm in the hole substantially (when it could have been not at all if I had gone to someone nearby who accepted my insurance). Additionally, I have received very unapologetic/dismissive behavior from their billing office on the matter. This was just the icing on the cake and it is no way to treat patients.

Dr Kogan is great. She will spend a lot of time with you and makes you feel very relaxed. I felt like I was talking to a friend rather than a doctor which is a welcoming change. Also her receptionist isvery nice. I went in being very nervous to find a primary Doctor. And left thinking what a great office this would be to work in.

I came in for an infection, which Dr. Kogan correctly diagnosed. However, she prescribed me one day of treatment, instead of the 7-14 days recommended by the Infectious Diseases Society of America. Thankfully, when I contacted Dr. Kogan, she immediately fixed my prescription.

Dr. Kogan was great! I was in to get the results of some pretty extensive tests but I was glad to have some face to face time with her to ask questions as they came up. I also was not feelingto well so it was nice to have her check that out at the appointments. I did purchase some homeopathic sinus meds and another supplement from the office that she recommended and they were a bit on the pricey side. But other than that, I look forward to continuing to work with her and having her be my primary care doctor.

Dr. Kogan was very kind, caring, and concerned about my reason for visiting. It was my first visit and her and her staff did an amazing job of really getting to know me and my past medical history. After using walk-inclinics since I've moved to New York, I think I have finally found a primary care physician I like.
