Dr. Zbarsky is GREAT! So happy to be a part of his Private Practice at ZOV Medical, and happy to be a member of the ZocDoc community. Can't really say enough good things about Dr. Zbarsky, see more recent review of2018 visit in end of January for write up detailing experience. Would like to note - someone literally had the nerve to write that they were "outraged" that when registering for a General Practioner, the GP's office insisted that the patient get a full screening by his Nurse with ultrasound, etc, plus bloodwork to do a full work up. That is ridiculous, what a terrible review, always has been on my nerves. When applying for a General Practioner, keep in mind that you are applying for a Medical Doctor to regulate and participate in all your medical care, let alone the time they spend thinking outside of your visit, not just about the issues of your visit, but your overall health as a concern from the perspective of what in American medicine is your central point of contact. So OBVIOUSLY, your going to want to do all the ultrasounds, the liver scans and the bloodwork, how would you expect a General Practioner to accept you to his or her practice without getting at least their own somewhat clear view of what the situational presentation is with mod to low complexity for consideration to begin treatment, and to consider you for their Practice, let alone their time!!!! So do keep in mind that a General Practioner is a specialist in all disciplines of medicine, and when making an appointment with Dr. Zbarsky for the first time, when he, and if he, accepts you to his practice, please do keep all scheduled intake evaluations and tests, it only makes sense that your General Practioner get the proper imaging, lab work and "low complex" picture to begin the start of what will, if accepted, be known as a proper relationship between the General Practioner and his patient. I am an MDX, let alone a VMDX and a PHDX, and I seek counsel from Dr. Zbarsky. It is a privlige to be a part of his practice, and I do know, that over the time I have spent going to see him, let alone the kind words he imparts to me, the critical care, let alone the detailed thought that goes into every visit, every consideration, and every action at his Practice in terms of my care, are detailed in thought, oriented in perception, and well obvious outside the confined bounds of just an office visit, meaning he has accepted me as his patient, and, as I can attest for my own patients, spends many hours outside of his office thinking about my care, in order to care for me. In medicine, it is called taking the time to have patience, for the patience, to have the patience, to develop the patience, for the patience to thoroughly patience the patient. Literally. Which, in translatory affect, means, that your medical provider, especially your General Practioner, let alone someone like your Psychiatrist or Neurologist (which I specialize in), spends many, many hours outside their practice, practicing their practice, to literally, have the patience, to spend their time patiently, with their patients', in order to involve, as it is called, one in medicine, from an abstracted view, so as to care for you in a gentle, but firm demeanor, so as to provide you with the most critical, acute and proper care, but to avoid attachment, while providing counsel and advise, in order to separate, literally, from critical decision and evaluation, in order, if necessary, to (well, do a lot of things, but for instance) literally dismiss the patient, from their Practice, if necessary, let alone administer proper care - which for all of you pharmacy commercial watching patients, is not coming to an M.D.'s office and saying, "oh, yeah, i saw this ad for this medication, i think i need that". Medication is not 'a la carte' - unless you are at least an MD, you do not recommend medication or think you are going to be selecting medicine from a Doctor. That is just absurd. You have no idea of what medicine involves, let alone what a schmuck you appear to a professional in medicine if you are not a fully qualified Medical Doctor at the very least, to discuss medications with the practioner. You must understand, you do not know what is best for you. That is what the Doctor exudes his patience on, patiently thinking about the patients in his or her practice to have the patience to discipline them in medicine, with the best judgement, which is not always, nor really ever the quickest fix, though as Doctors, we would wish it could be! Sometimes it is hard to look a critical care patient in the face and tell them that all they can do is help themselves, if having the patience to literally, write this, for instance, as a reipriticial inferirioticriocriticrial indrucductial indruduction (or inludiuctal), [neurological / neurologitics syntax] for instance - talk about patience from the M.D.!!!! (who, for the readers benefit, simply "inducted" into the thought of the writing MDX, an observation to write, as his mind is gently patienting the patient, and he is thinking about my critical care situation that I face right now that he is helping me with! Literally, its like ZocDoc just changed within a few hours with the practioner's available, its really quite astounding! But not at all surprising, is the point, especially to have a General Practioner such as Dr. Zbarsky involved in my care, having called his office today, and talked about trouble finding appointments with his staff, i "inducted" myself into his lineatical line of thought, and involved him more "proactively" in my care, so he is showing more concern, and knows that, for instance, I would be using ZocDoc, so I have found colleagues of his appear literally just while using the service this evening, as he, for instance, in laymen's terms, would be thinking, 'Hey, my patient uses ZocDoc to schedule with myself, he is looking for more providers to accept his information profile, etc, and is in need of a more urgent appointment, so, as his General Practioner, I will call my associates, and get them involved on the website, for him to find,' as an example of that neurlypitical relypiticical relipitycal appapliplipal application of neurlypitics (ahhh, the beauty of neurology. no you may not have my patience, I am cash pay only - MDX). Anyway... I would ask ZocDoc to please remove that ridiculous review of Dr. Zbarsky's office of the patient who complains about not being able to have the discipline to show patience, as the patient, for the opportunity of the MD to have the patience to serve his needs in the manner that Dr. Zbarsky performs. It annoys me very much. But anyway, Dr. Zbarsky is great! I hope you get accepted. It is and always will be a pleasure to have him as an associate, let alone a colleague in medicine, let alone the privilege to have him as my General Practioner! Thrilled patient (with patience applied!).

Dr. Zbarsky is the best! Always a pleasure, and so professional, the staff, the office, and obviously, Dr. Zbarsky. This is why I choose him as my General Practioner. Be aware, that if booking as a General Practioner, it is alwaysstandard procedure to be processed with a full medical screening and ultrasound, etc. It is only proper for the GP to get a full understanding of your condition to accept you at his practice. And once accepted, if he decides to take you on as a patient, his care is THE BEST! Such a wonderful doctor. But be aware that it is a private, invite only practice, and that it is a privilege to be invited, so do be coconscious about filling out your medical history, or else your just a waste of time. So do get your full screening, in order to be put in his active patient list. And also be aware that his practice is Russian based, so that the level of care is by far superior to American Medicine, but also be aware that the staff and clientele are associates of his, and will not tolerate some dumb schmuck who is just looking for a quick visit, it is a professional, orderly affair where you must be screened, chosen and have the insurance, private, and financial affairs to afford his practice, regardless of the insurance listed. In essence, it is a private practice, by invite only. But with that said, as an MDX, and a patient of his, I highly recommend that you apply for his consideration. Not only is it worth it, as a colleague of his in medicine, I can assure you that once processed, and his practice has a complete profile on your general health and your state (inclusive of blood work), your care will be exemplary. Else, what would you expect of a General Practioner, I would say that I would dismiss you from my Practice if you did not give me the data to make proper medical decisions! But with that said, Dr. Zbarsky is a wonderful gentleman. Soft spoken, but firm. Gentle and caring. And very kind, but not to be confused with pliable in any way shape or form. If your looking for some script doctor, you've got the wrong place, but if your respectable, well groomed, well credentialed and well presented, and in need of extremely high quality care, then I would definitely recommend that Dr. Zbarsky, at ZOV Medical, will provide you with what I receive, which is EXEMPLARY CARE, End Of Line. Simply Fantastic, I can't say enough wonderful things about Dr. Zbarsky. And do have the patience to respect the patience that he exudes for the patience to treat his patients, with patience and care, the patients that he cares about so much to take on at his General Practioner Practice located discreetly and conveniently on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. - DR MWB, MDX, VMDX, PHDX (happy patient!!! :-) )

I love Dr. Zbarsky! I saw his wife for the first few years at this practice and have been seeing him for the last few. They take great care of me and I always feel like he has time to sitand chat with me, about medical stuff and general life too. He's a genuinely kind person and his staff is always pleasant too. The only thing I wish they did was electronically send scripts to the drugstore but that's not really a huge thing since there's a Duane Reade on my corner. All in all, I recommend him for your primary care needs!
