Verified Patient Reviews
She was very compassionate and understanding considering I was seeing her for the first time for an illness. After this first visit I am planning to see her in the future.
She answers all of my questions and gives me a better understanding of my overall health and what I need to improve it.
My appointment with Dr. Patel felt rushed and I felt as if she did not really try to get to know me as her patient. While I understand that most medical offices use an electronic medical record system requiring providers to type their notes (and therefore face the computer), Dr. Patel barely looked at me. I left the office feeling like my visit was a waste of time and I wish I would have seen a different provider. Overall disappointed in the bedside manner.
I think Dr. Patel is great, I have been seeing her for many years now. She maintains both her intelligence and her empathy despite the restrictions of the system in which she works. (stated as someone who worked at Sinai for a couple of decades)
Dr Patel is amazing, attentive and caring. I always feel confident that whatever my needs or conserns may be, Dr Patel will make sure everything is taken care of!
She is patient and kind
Amazing! Professional! Kind! Efficient! Thorough! I highly recommend this doctor.
Very thorough! Skilled and knowledgeable and pleasant! Great doctor!
Always a great experience with Dr. Patel
This was my first visit with Dr. Patel and I only needed a well visit, however Dr. Patel was very thorough and spent a lot of time asking me questions about my overall health. Her bedside manner and concern for you as a patient seems genuine and although she did not rush the appointment, she was very efficient. I highly recommend Dr. Patel as a PCP!
My first visit with Dr. Patel was good. She took her time listening to my health problems.I didn't have to wait but a few minutes to see her. And her staff was great also. Bernard B

Dr. Patel is a top notch professional and a real human being, every visit has been satisfactory
Thorough, extremely likeable, frank about necessity/non-necessity of certain tests. Doesn't hesitate to give requested recommendations or answer any question. Installs trust and again, warm and professional. I'd recommend her in a second. Office staff very efficient, novel in my My Sinai experiences
Dr. Patel has a great bedside manner, is very easy to talk to and friendly. She's patient and takes her time listening to your concerns without rushing you. She's thorough, methodical and diligent about diagnosing the problem and coming up with a treatment plan. I highly recommend her!
Excellent Doctor, very attentive and responsive to patients questions and concerns
She was very nice, listened to all my concerns, and made me feel very comfortable.
She was very thorough, asked questions, listened to my concerns, she made me feel very comfortable and spoke with me about my options and follow up.
as always, both Dr. Patel and her staff were great. I have suggested Dr. Patel to some of my co-workers and their experiences have been just the same. Easy to get an apt and always on time. most importantly, no matter what issue brings you to her office, she takes the time to talk with you, educate you and you can tell she truly does care!
Dr Patel is intelligent, patient, and has an excellent bedside manner. I recommend her highly.
Very prompt and professional. Exactly what I was hoping for in a general practitioner.
Dr. Patel is very warm, direct in the way she communicates and she's helpful with answering any questions and/or referral recommendations.
I have been looking for an internist for 3 years and I am so happy with my first visit with Dr. Patel. She was friendly and professional. She listened to me, asked appropriate questions and I did not feel rushed. The office staff was nice. Give it an A+
Dr. Patel is caring and professional. I trust her! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a great primary care doctor!!!
No waiting time. Very thorough care. Clean facilities.
Dr. Patel was kind and the wait time was extremely short. I sat down for approximately 2 minutes and was called in.
She listened to my concerns, went over all results, gave me a some suggestions and was generally concerned and suggested eating better and exercising. I would recommend her to any colleague who needs a great physician.
Great. She was straight to the point and helpful
This was my second time seeing Dr. Patel. She is professional yet warm. She has a great bedside manner and is thorough. Dr. Patel took the time to listen to my concerns, ask me questions and answer my questions. Going to see any doctor makes me anxious and Dr. Patel helped to assuage my fears.
Dr. Patel was really great -- she's the first doctor I think I've ever seen with whom I felt completely at ease about being honest.
as always, I had a wait time of less then 5 minutes, her staff was efficient and caring, and most of all, she took all the time needed. She explained things clearly and knows her stuff. If you are looking for a Dr, you could not do better than Dr. Patel. I work in public health and see the good and the bad...she is tops on the good list. Patricia P.
She made me feel very comfortable. I plan on continuing to see her as my primary physician.

Dr. Patel was very attentive to my needs and questions. She was professional and prompt with communicating all test results.
I was seen right away. The doctor was easy to talk to and very thorough, which I appreciated specially since this was my first visit. I have no complaints.
It was very good, professional.
Ms. Patel was extremely professional, friendly, listened to my concerns and addressed every question I had written down to ask. She was straight forward, which I appreciated very much. She offered me suggestions and next steps for continued support on a healthy lifestyle. I would recommend her to friends and family!
Sadly this appointment has been cancelled days before, as the intention that suggested this appointment was of no concern to follow through. But all in all Doctor V. Patel, is a very good Physician, as I hope to see here in the New Year. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to her and her staff.
It was my first visit with her as my new primary care doctor. Now, I'm what many would say is in very good health and I watch what I eat and get regular exercise. I felt that Dr. Patel dealt with me with that in mind. Based on what she saw in my vitals and from conversation she didn't feel I was a patient that she would be worried about. I say all this to express my feeling that on one hand she didn't spend enough time in a thorough check-up, but on the other hand she didn't really need to because I am pretty healthy. So, just feeling a little unreasonably dissatisfied. But what more could she have done? Next time I'm going to make an appointment with the psychiatrist because obviously something is mentally wrong with me.
Dr Patel is not only an excellent clinician, she is also warm, compassionate, and easy to talk to. I never feel rushed
My husband and I are both physicians and use Dr. Patel as our primary care doc. We have been very happy with her. She is thorough and pleasant. I recommend her to everyone!
She was very friendly and professional
Dr. Patel was very thorough, took the time to answer all of my questions and make me feel comfortable. She addressed every concern I had.
Great visit. Approachable and friendly physician.
Dr. Patel was very pleasant, professional and efficent. She is a great doctor,
I am very happy to have chosen her as my my primary doctor and I look forward to my future visits.
I love her!!! Vinisha is patient, kind, extremely thorough and reviews your history with you, listens very carefully, shows empathy when discussing personal disappointments and makes suggestions. She saw me right away. Vinisha keeps me on track!!
The doctor was okay. The best Doctor at this practice was Doreen Mensah but she is no longer there. I went to get a doctors note and the front desk was closed I was told by one of the workers who was near the front desk that they close at 5:00 pm and I left around 5:20pm I find that a bit unprofessional but whatever . I felt the doctor wanted to rush out since I was her last patient. I will try her again. Everyone deserves a second
Great and knowledgable ......
Dr. Patel is an excellent clinician. She was thorough and showed compassion. She is very personable, did not appear rushed and made me feel I could bring up any concerns I might have. She also gave me clear instructions on how to contact her should I have any questions after my visit. This was my first visit to her office. The office was very efficient. As a new patient, the registration took only minutes. I myself am a primary care physician. I highly recommend Dr. Patel
Dr. Patel is an amazingly thorough and caring doctor. It's hard to find a doctor that has a great bedside manner along with being an excellent clinician. It's usually one or the other, but with Dr. Patel it's the full package.
Very professional. The wait was about 10 minutes. The staff smiles and are very professional dr. Patel is very attentive and listens to you when your talking. I definetly look forward to my appointments and recommend them to all my family and friends. You will not be disappointed.
One of the finest primary care doctors I have ever had. Whole experience (administrative staff, facility, nurses, doctor) could not have been better - and it is that way each and every time I have seen Dr. Patel for the past three years.
She was very knowledgeable in attending to my health related needs. clean environment and professional service was definitely apparent during my visit. I will most likely be returning to this office in the future
Great , she was personable and professional
She was very professional and answered all my questions and concerns without hesitation. The best thing about my physical is that I feel like she was actually thorough and did not just give me the 5-minute run down that some physicians in the city do.
The front office ladies were very pleasant and greeted all patients. I sat for less than 15 minutes and went in right away. Medical Assistant Marlene took my vitals and blood work, she was Excellent and Personable. Dr. Patel, came in shortly after Med. Assist was done with initial intake and she was Absolutely Amazing. She took her time gathering prior medical history, operations and meds. Very methodical in her approach and treatment which lends to her soft and very efficient demeanor. As for ZocDoc, this was my first time using this method to search, secure and register for a Dr.s' appt. Zocdoc was very helpful each step of the way. My appointment was at 3:40 pm, I received an email & text reminder and confirmation which included both the address and phone # of Dr. In addition, they offer travel directions whether driving or utilizing public transportation. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Vinisha Patel, she is kind, patient and very thorough. I also Highly recommend Zocdoc, I was a little apprehensive because all communication is via email/text but I'm very pleased with the consistency and accuracy of the team at Zocdoc.
Greatly appreciated the time with the doctor. No wait time and the office is so clean. Would send others here. The best thing is if something is wrong, there are a team of doctors to get more specialized attention.
Extremely pleasant, helpful, and dedicated to helping me. Could not have asked for better help.
Dr. Patel is an excellent physician. She listens to her patients & is very thorough
I've never had a visit go so quickly! They called me back before I'd even started my paperwork (which they gave me plenty of time to finish later). I would say my total wait time over the course of the visit was maybe 2 minutes.
Pleasent, knowleagdble, and helpful. Dr. Patel is a very nice doctor who I would return to see for any futrue issues.
I love Dr Patel! She is caring and warm and actually listens to her patients! I've been going to Dr Patel for years and I have referred several people to her because of her attentiveness. If you visit Dr Patek you won't be disappointed, and the nurses, and assistants and front desk staff are all equally nice and accommodating! The office is beautiful and always clean! It's truly a positive experience seeing Dr Patel.
Dr. Patel is kind and courteous and has a great memory. I have had two appointments with her 6 months apart and she remembered specific details from the conversation we had in my first appointment, that wasn't medical, related in the second appointment. She was able to help me with what I needed and even though her office is out of the way for me to get to, the quality of care she provides makes it worth the extra effort to go uptown.
I love Dr. Patel. She is very attentive and you can really tell that she cares!
Very thorough, logical & realistic (in a good way), and helpful.
Dr. Patel is great. She actually remembered my visit from last year. How often does THAT happen? She doesn't let you just sit there, Dr. P engages her patients and gives you ample opportunity to discuss any issues you may be having. She's awesome!
I appreciate Dr. Patel's efficiency, her ability to listen and to be open. Ultimately her manner allowed me to feel that I was truly contributing to the decision making process regarding my wellness goals. I did realize, after leaving, that I forgot to address a few other concerns. I'm looking forward to getting them answered on her client related email site; MYMOUNTSINAICHART. I also left with her notes of the visit. All's good!
As always, Dr. Patel was friendly and professional. No wait at all and the visit was quick and efficient.
This was my first visit and I could not have been anymore pleased. Dr. Patel was friendly and helpful and there was no wait time at all. I am very happy that I have found such a great doctor in NYC.
I really liked !
Dr. Patel was very nice and friendly. She was welcoming and calm. She understood my concerns and gave me options on treatment. Her nurse was also very helpful and I liked that all blood work was done in the office at the time of my appointment. Dr. Patel took her time and did not rush through the appointment. I plan on making Dr. Patel my primary care physician in NYC!
I felt comfortable straight away and she really listened when asking questions about my general health and family history.
Dr. Patel was very knowledgeable and considerate. She went above and beyond by giving me several specialist referrals and worked with my insurance. I will be back.
As always she is both extremely professional and personable. I am very happy to have Dr. Patel as my doctor!
Dr. Patel was very kind and listened to my concerns with compassion. I didn't have to wait at all. The entire staff was very efficient and kind.
I liked her, she was very attentive. I will definitely share my experience with everyone i know.
Vinisha and her staff were very pleasant and professional. It was a refreshingly hassle-free experience.
Very easy talk to . I felt comfortable
The doctor was very efficient and followed up on information shared in previous visit.
I really liked her. She listened to my hesitation to be super medicated and respected my desire to try natural remedies to my ailments first. She didn't push anything on me. I'm happy I found her as my PCP. She is also great responding to your questions on the online portal for Mount Sinai.
She's awesome! Made me feel very comfortable :)
She has always been an attentive, thorough doctor, who cares about more than just your medications and blood work.
Since she's been my established Doctor, all visits has been extremely pleasant. I highly recommend her to everyone.
Doctor Vinisha Patel is very nice, listened to me patiently, and she did the physical examination very carefully. she also gave me many advice.
She is kind
I was very impressed with Dr. Patel and the office as a whole. I had essentially no wait time, the nurses were helpful and friendly, and the office was clean and neat. Dr. Patel was very professional yet comfortable to talk to. She was caring and did not rush me whatsoever. I will definitely return.
Great. Good listener. Quick. Direct to the point. Had the right questions. Blood test was quick too. I was done in 20 minutes for the yearly checkup.
The doctor was very thorough and mindful of the issues being presented. She addressed all ailments and gave a program that was easy to understand and follow at home.
I was very pleased with Dr. Patel today. It was the first time I had met her, I had not seen a Dr. for many years and was nervous and embarrassed. Dr. Patel did not judge me for my negligence, she took time talking to me to find out if I was having any specific problems or concerns, listened intently to my heart, lungs and abdomen, ordered all of the appropriate blood tests for someone my age such as cholesterol, thyroid, kidney, liver, etc...tests that I should have begun having regularly years ago, she scheduled me for a colonoscopy (also, long overdue) and arranged for a radiology appointment for as soon as I left her office. She also offered to contact me tomorrow, a Saturday, with the results. When I told her I would be working, she made sure that I was set up with special online access and password to view my results and her own input regarding the results of my tests. She is clear headed, practical and relatable. Her offices are clean and the other staff members were pleasant and conciencious. Meeting your potential new Physician for the first time seemed it would be awkward, wondering if you'll be comfortable opening up to them about your health concerns but Dr. Patel's demeanor was calm and assuring. I definitely recommend her.
I was very happy with my visit Dr.Patel. She was very concern with the issues that I spoke with her about.
The doctor was professional, thorough, and very personable.
Friendly and professional, Dr. Patel saw me promptly and concisely addressed my questions and concerns. Will continue to see her.
Not sure how I felt about this doctor...
She was competent and efficient. Appeared skeptical of some of the symptoms presented during the appointment, but listened thoroughly to every one. Definitely would visit Dr. Patel again with any future concerns.
Dr. Patel was very help with answering questions that I had during my visit.
Dr. Patel was friendly and very kind.
Dr. Patel and the staff made my first visit comfortable for me which is rare with most places. The staff was very polite from beginning to end which showed a great deal of professionalism. I would definitely recommend her to anyone in search of a great doctor!
Overall it was a Great Visit. They called me in before I even filled out paper work. Dr. Patel asked a lot of questions. Made me feel welcomed. I think I found my new PCP.
CALM, REASSURING AND ATTENTIVE.
I think she listens and is helpful and I soothing and I really feel good about seeing her
She's a real person and a good doctor. Very pleasant and knows what she's doing.
Dr. Patel was friendly and was concerned about my family history. She made me feel comfortable. I was called in to see her before I finished the paperwork. I especially liked that I was able to see my blood work results the next day online using My Chart. I will refer my husband.
I was very happy with Dr. Patel's thoroughness and with the courtesy of the office staff. I felt that all my concerns were addressed and that she took time with me. I plan on going through Mt. Sinai for everything now. Thanks zocdoc!

She was the nicest and warmest MD I've ever seen! Highly recommended.
