Everyone in the office was helpful and friendly, so 5 stars for that part. Dr. Patel was nice enough, and listens more than most doctors, but she's still got that brief, businesslike vibe going that most doctors do. Don't expect tobe best friends with your doctor or anything when you go here, but I had a good experience!

I have finally found a good primary doctor in NYC! After trying three different primary physicians which underestimated my symptoms just because I am “young”, she was very carefully listening to me and she at least prescribed me more tests torun in order to try to understand what’s going on. I would highly recommend her to anyone who looks for a doctor who cares about you and is willing to listen to you. Very great experience!

The person administering the flu vaccine was more caring than the internist. The greeting from first contact felt like it was being read from the computer. Overall it wasn't totally disappointing but it was rushed. The speed is great for thosethat are waiting but stinks for the patient that is being seen.

Dr. Patel and the staff were so polite and great to talk to. They made conversation (albeit not very long) with me and made me feel like I'm not just another number. Dr. Patel was happy to take me as anew patient and I enjoyed the experience! Even when they took my blood (I hate needles) the PAs where gentle and kind. This is a friendly, caring office!

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 totype 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)

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 youas a patient seems genuine and although she did not rush the appointment, she was very efficient. I highly recommend Dr. Patel as a PCP!
