Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Tina Urphanishvili, is wonderful, thorough and patient. I did not have to wait. She is personable, kind and funny. I wholeheartedly recommend her. Thank you! EB
Very helpful and educational, explaining every step in detail so I fully understood everything.
Excellent very professional quick fast service
Dr. Tina is very personable and professional. She explains everything simply and goes into detail if you ask. She explains why she is doing things and she is excited to work with you and not just trying to get you in and out of the door.
Dr. Urpanishvili was very very professional and kind. She explained everything very clearly and listened closely to my concerns. I've struggled with chronic pain, and it is sometimes difficult to articulate the experience to a doctor because of the overlapping causes and problems that contribute to it. I've seen doctors in the past that didn't seem too interested in listening, and wanted to give one quick diagnosis to treat one symptom. Dr. Urpanishvili really surprised me with how much she was willing to hear me out. I think the referrals she gave me will help me a lot more than doctor visits in the past.
Excellent doctor. Friendly, knowledgeable and efficient.
After almost five years of going to doctors I didn't love in NYC (ranging from terrible to meh, fine) I finally found a great doctor! The wonderful care started as soon as I made the appointment, when the office called me to let me know that I had marked my appointment as "due to illness" instead of an annual checkup. They wanted to be sure I was sick, because marking it as such carries an additional cost with my insurance. I was so happy they did, since it was actually just a checkup, and they helped me save a significant amount of money. (I don't know any medical professionals in NYC who do this.) When I got to the office, the receptionist was friendly, and Dr. Tina saw me right on time. I weirdly kind of enjoyed the visit. She was so friendly, holistic, scientific, and thoughtful in her approach to my health, making me feel valued and comfortable. She helped guide me through next steps with my insurance if I wanted to do blood tests and printed out a list of nearby clinics with short waits and ones who were open on the weekend. When the blood results came back, she promptly called me and talked me through what they meant, even though everything was fine and she really didn't need to do that. Again, I don't think most doctors would. I honestly feel like I understand my health better having gone to her, and I will 100% make her my go-to primary care physician in NYC. FINALLY! I'm so happy I found her!
Dr. Urpanishvili was very thorough and did a good job of explaining everything that she was doing. She was really great at listening to me.
I walk in for an annual physical that i need to get done for a medical service that I'm going through which is outside my insurance company. She asks me 20 different questions about that company and why I chose it and then asked about all of the previous doctors that I've seen. She then asks about insurance and since I haven't had an annual physical, I ask her to file it that way. She then wants to view paperwork about my previous doctor visits that I couldn't provide. At this point, we are 30 minutes into the appointment and we haven't even started the Physical examination yet. She looks at my face (which probably has an angry expression) and decides to cancel the appointment. When I realize that she's throwing me out of her office, I call her a racist. I've never been kicked out of a doctor's office before, even if I was in a bad mood. She then threatens to call the police (as if calling someone a racist is in of itself a crime. It's not). I leave and the administrative assistant starts yelling at me as if I'm a criminal or something.
This practice does not take bloods on site.
Dr. Tina was the first doctor that really listened to my concerns and set forth next steps that are manageable!
The doctor was really respectful.My visit was good but I would like if the clinic did blood work instead of having to go to a specific clinic.
is amazing that she is open on Saturday and also my husband for running late from his meeting and she still took him in to see.
Incredibly good doctor. Very kind and professional, and actually explained why she was doing some of the basic tests she does. Like what she checked for when she listened to my heart. I actually learned a lot!
Dr Tina was incredibly sweet and professional. She helped me figure out which treatment was the most cost effective and left without paying anything.
Did an annual checkup. She ordered blood tests. She said she will call me back when she has the results, and gave me her business card for me to call her if I don't hear back. She never called me back. I called her 10+ times and no one answers.
You are in good care with Dr. Tina. I appreciate that she takes the time to explain everything. Overall, an incredibly thorough and caring doctor.
Friendly, talked me through the entire appointment.
I love Dr Tinatin!
Friendliest doctor I've ever met. Very patient with all of my questions. I tend to have a lot of anxiety about doctor's appointments and she put me at ease right away. Would definitely recommend if you are looking for a GP.
Dr Tina is just great! She has a wonderful disposition, is thorough, kind, attentive, helpful, responsive and responsible.
Dr. Urpanishvili is kind and thourough in her examination. She is not likely to push unnecessary medications on you and provides a welcoming environment. She also offers appointments in the evening so I can make it to her after work which is a huge added bonus.
A caring and patient doctor!
Wonderful doctor,she made me at home. She was very detailed oriented and explained everything as she went along. One of if not the best first time visit I have had!
She doesnt take blood at ger office so it was pretty much a waste of time.
Dr Tina is so patient and considerate and very knowledgeable. I would recommend wholeheartedly
I recently saw Dr. Urpanishvilli, and she had the best bedside manner of any doctor I've ever seen. She warm, patient, thorough, and explained everything she was doing. There was hardly any wait time plus she has later evening hours that are very convenient. I highly recommend her!
Always a good experience!
Very professional and clearly has great knowledge. Also a very nice person!
She was incredibly sweet and helpful. Made me feel very comfortable and explained everything I needed to know with detail. I would definitely go to her again!
The doctor was warm, friendly, knowledgeable and eager to help. The clinic was clean and the assistant was also courteous. Highly recommended.
Extremely knowledgeable, professional and caring, quick diagnosis and always on the mark. In case of questions provides very thoughtful advice.
Very thorough. I didn't feel rushed. She explained everything clearly including next steps.
Very pleasant and attentive doctor. I received answers to all my questions. Definitely will come back to Mrs. Urpanishvili when I need a doctor next time.
Dr. Tina was super sweet and thorough in explaining everything she was doing for an annual check up. The only reason why I'm switching doctors is because Dr. Tina doesn't do blood work in her office and you have to go to another place, which is fine for others! She's very sweet!
the doctor was wonderful. she explained everything in detail and was clean, kind and courteous.
Will 100% go back! Incredibly kind and explained everything so well.
What a wonderful experience. I have not had such a well-listening, attentive doctor in so long. She really cares and she is so friendly as well! Thank you!
Dr. Tina made me feel incredibly comfortable and is very thorough in all her examinations. She's very clear and made sure I understood everything as she was examining me.
The reviews are very accurate! She is an incredible doctor and is extremely thorough and caring. Very happy with my appointment and to have found a doctor I can trust.
Dr. Tina was attentive, showing real patience and care. Thank You! M
Amazing. So friendly and patient. Took the time to explain everything she did and made sure my concerns were addressed. I felt very comfortable with her.
Very good advice. Felt happy after talking to her. She cared and advised in depth. She was amazing. Thank you Tina :)
She is a very caring physician who remembers you. I would highly recommend her.
First visit. Very thorough, attentive, and kind.
Tinatin was very friendly and paid close attention to everything to ensure I was comfortable. She took the time to explain all the steps she took, gave me recommendations and went above and beyond overall.
Dr. Urphanishvili had very good bedside manners and was happy to answer any questions I had regarding my annual physical.
I really liked her honesty and the fact that she explained why she was doing certain things and how it applied to what was wrong with me. She was very direct and put my needs as a patient first which I really needed.
Very nice and explained exactly what she was doing each step of the way.
I would highly recommend Dr. Tina. As a psychologist who works in a hospital, I encounter a fair amount of MD's with poor bedside manner and I was very pleased to see that Dr. Tina was incredibly thorough and really took her time to explain what she was thinking and doing during the exam. I would especially recommend her to patients who may a trauma history and really require a sensitive physician.
She was so nice! And she has night time (Tuesday) and Saturday appointments! I couldn't believe how nice she was! Thank you Doctor!
I was seen right away, and greeted very kindly by Dr. Urphanishvili. She was so sweet and very attentive to my needs. Many doctors try to rush you out of the door to see their next patient, but not her. The only downside is that she isn't able to take blood at her office, so you'd have to get that done elsewhere. All in all, my appointment was very pleasant! =]
I was able to see the doctor right away, with no wait time. The doctor seemed to be new but capable of doing her job. The office doesnt look like a standard doctors office but they are open late and able to see you right away.
Very kind, sweet lady.
She is a very special human being. It was a 9 PM appointment and she was not rushing. She was very patient and heard detail of my concerns. God bless her offering outstanding service.
The doctor was great. First visit, she was very thorough and explained everything to make sure I really understood why she was doing things and what her recommendations were.
Very caring and competent doctor. She took her time in getting to know me and my health problems. Highly recommended.
Dr. Urphanishvili is a thorough and compassionate Doctor. She called me personally before my appointment and was available to see me on a Sunday. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a PCP!
She is funny, knowledgeable and overall great! I would recommend her to anyone!
Dr. Tinatin was wonderful. Upon arrival, I was greeted by her very kind secretary/assistant. After filling out a few forms, I met with Dr. Tinatin IMMEDIATELY. She began by explaining what would happen during the appointment and continued with asking if I needed anything specific answered. Throughout the appointment she explained every part of the exam in detail and was extremely patient. I cannot speak any more highly of her!
Very caring and professional.
Dr. Tina is so incredible--really the best doctor experience I've ever had! She is truly concerned with every patient's care and takes a thorough holistic approach to understand all aspects of your life and how it relates to your care. I have already recommended her to friends.
As someone who has had horrible luck with doctors, I don't trust new ones easily. Dr. Tina was so friendly and straightforward with me. She addressed all of my concerns, answered my questions and explained everything thoroughly to me. When discussing options to move forward with the best medical plan for me, I felt that she was receptive to my thoughts/concerns/comfort level. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone.
The service was very quick and easy, and she couldn't have been nicer. I will definitely go back for any future needs
She was thorough and attentive, respectful and warm. Glad to have finally found the doctor for me near work!
She was very thorough and addressed all of my concerns.
She was very nice and thoroughly explained everything that she was doing. She made sure that I understood everything and asked if I had any questions. She took notes and was very organized. I will definitely return as a primary care patient.
Super sweet and great bed-side manner. Efficient and thorough.
I saw Dr. Urphanishvilli and she was very nice, but not very knowledgable. She wasn't familiar with my medication, which is fairly common. I was surprised by that. However, I do appreciate how thorough she was and she seems like she truly cares about her patients. Also, the office is clean but very run-down, especially the waiting area.
Great that they have later hours it helps a lot if you want to avoid missing work. Doctor was very nice and the wait was very short.
So warm and easy to talk to! Would definitely recommend and I plan to see her moving forward!
She is kind, competent, and compassionate. She listens to all of your concerns and never makes you feel like your concerns are not valid. Would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking for a fantastic PCP in the city.
She is extremely thorough, personable and attentive. The office is exceptionally clean and staff helpful. I love that she has weekend appointments. Highly recommend.
Dr. Urphanishvili was great. I would recommend her to anyone. She was thoughtful and listened to all my concerns and addressed each one.I was seen at my exact appointment time and my expectations were exceeded.
She was very nice but could not do a single thing for me, she would only refer me to other doctors and wouldn't even talk about my issues in depth. It ultimately felt like a huge waste of time.
Dr. Tinatin is the best! So helpful. So easy to talk with. Such complete exams. Highly recommended.
It was a rapid process: I got to see Dr. Urphanishvili immediately. Assistant and staff were friendly. Dr. Urphanishvili even called me after my appointment to go over items we had not discussed, which I found both professional and very thoughtful.
Very attentive, called shortly after scheduling an online appointment just to check in on my condition. Cares about her patients.
A very pleasant visit. Dr. Tina and staff were very polite, caring and efficient.. Every step of the process was explained and they took the time to learn a little bit about me as a person. All in all, that seems like good medical practice to me.
I thought she was very nice and professional. Was seen right away...and on a Sunday! One glitch. I went to see her to get referrals for a dermatologist due to a rash. I show up to Dermo and the referral was not sufficient. I thought it was a little odd that she didn't fill out the official Empire/Blue Cross Blue Shield referral form. The demo's office almost turned me away! That was the only glitch.
What I loved most of all was the time and attention Dr. Urpanishvilli gave me. She was kind, a good listener and walked me through every part of the appointment. She put me right at ease and made my visit productive, efficient and smooth.
If you are looking for a doctor whose expertise lies in areas outside of the typical chronic conditions (high blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, etc.), I would suggest another doctor. Otherwise, you will end up with many referrals to specialists.
She, as well as her assistants, were so sweet and super professional. I think I've finally found my primary.
The best doctor I have ever been to! Honest review! Attentive, caring , knowledgable and professional! Would be recommending her to everyone! Thank you!
She was very professional and attentive. Great Doctor. Would high recommend.
Dr. Urphanishvili is very nice and knowledgeable. She addressed all of my questions patiently and does not seem rushed at all. I went there after dinner and only waited <5 minutes.
best experience possible!
Great bedside manner, very nice, very informative. Would recommend to anyone else
Excellent and caring doctor. Very personable and interested in finding the right solution to any concerns I had.
This doctor is very caring and kind. She gave a lot of attention to my annual.
I would highly recommend this office! The appointment hours are great, especially for those who work during the week. I managed to get a Sunday appointment and was taken back right away. The staff was extremely friendly. The checkup was thorough, the doctor explained everything she did, and was patient with all my questions. I'll definitely keep her as my primary doctor!
Truly one of the best doctor's appointment I have ever had -- Dr. Urphanishvili is incredibly warm and welcoming and very attentive to all medical concerns you may have. HIGHLY recommend!
wonderful, informative, thorough and great hours!
wonderful, informative, thorough and great hours!
This was by far the best GP visit I've ever had. Dr. Urphanishvili is courteous, kind, and solicitous of your input and questions. She goes out of her way to make sure you feel comfortable throughout your visit and understand what she's doing and why. I honestly have had a negative bias regarding going to the doctor because of bad past experiences with doctors and staff that seemed rude or arrogant, but thankfully this visit nullified that impression. Her staff was also courteous, professional, and efficient. I look forward to visiting her again.
Nothing but good things to say. Many thanks to the team!
Very attentive , informative, helpful, kind and generous.
She is very nice and patient and explain her thought clearly.
Nicest doctor I've ever seen. She was very patient and explained everything very well. Highly recommend!
She was awesome. Very friendly, explained everything she was doing. She took her time, but I didn't feel like I was there forever. Her office staffmembers were also very friendly and helpful. At a certain point, one stayed with me in the first room before seeing the doctor and I thought that was a nice touch - not overbearing, but friendly.
Dr. Urphanishvili is a phenomenally attentive doctor. 10/10 am never going to any other primary care doctor in The City for as long as I'm here.
Very friendly and professional!
Very kind and knowledgeable, she really took time to answer all of my questions and I didn't feel rushed.
Dr Tina is very professional and a lovely person to deal with. She clearly explained everything. Her staff were also very nice and couldn't be more helpful. I would definitely recommend Dr Tina.
Very thorough and unhurried - after getting used to being rushed in and rushed out at other doctors' offices, it was a refreshing change!
Tinatin was very kind and took her time to talk to me. It has been a long time since I have had such a thorough doctor. I would definitely recommend her.
Dr. Tina was super friendly and made me feel very comfortable. She did not rush me out or jump to conclusion and immediately diagnose me with everything. We spoke very thoroughly about all my concerns. The office is very old school. She likes to keep everything in a file folder and have any other medical history faxed to her so she has it all together. Nothing is computerized but I was very comfortable with it. I only had to wait long because I was early for my appointment and the appointment before me got there at the same time. If I had not arrived early, my wait time would have only been 10 minutes after my scheduled appointment.
Dr. Urphanishvili was very gentle and thorough. Even the staff members were very kind.
Professional and very thorough
I had no problem what so ever. Dr. Urphanishvili is a very wonderful and caring doctor- She knows her stuff.
