If it were possible I would give Dr. Zachary Bregman 10 stars. During the course of my adult life I have had many experiences with doctors both for myself and my family. Living in the metropolitan New York City area Ihave always felt that we are fortunate to have access to some of the world’s best physician’s. In that regard I believe that Dr. Bregman is among the “Best of the Best”. From my first visit to his office to this day the professionalism and care he and his staff have provided has been phenomenal. I find him to be genuinely concerned about my health and well being. He is extremely knowledgeable, intuitive, and thorough and takes the time to sit down with you to discuss every detail of your visit. The staff is wonderful. They are not only professional but warm and friendly and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. I can’t speak highly enough of Dr. Bregman and his staff. My family and I are fortunate to have found such a skilled and caring physician.

I went for a standard physical about a year ago, when Dr Bregman discussed another patient's medical record with his nurse infront of me. While the visit was sufficient, I felt it unprofessional to be disrupted in the middle of myappointment and unethical to discuss another patient overall. Would not recommend.

I was and still am unhappy about my visit. He had a medical student following him and I didn't appreciate how condescending he was to the student. He made the student hang up my coat and drilled him on terms frommy medical record. I didn't feel heard or like the doctor was listening very closely to my concerns. He sent me to get an X-ray when in my records from the past, it showed that ct scans were what identified findings. His office was also dingy and cluttered. The only positive part about the visit was how nice the receptionist and nurse were.

Today was my second visit with Dr. Bregman and I could not be happier. Initially, I went to him with a bacterial bronchitis after my former GP prescribed me an ASTMA inhaler(!?) for it without spending the time investigating what thecause was. I was unhappy, stressed and felt the need for a second opinion and that is how I found Dr. Bregman. He prescribed me the correct medication, I started taking it right away and felt better within 24 hours, bronchitis was gone in 3 days and I never even purchased the expensive ASTMA inhaler prescribed by my former doc. I was impressed with Dr. Bregman's manner and decided to switch to him as my GP. He went ahead with a general exam/blood/urine work, took the time to get to know me and asked all the right questions. At the follow–up he explained me the test results in details, gave me valuable advices of how to improve some of the numbers and live a healthier lifestyle. I highly recommend Dr. Bregman and his team!

Doctor Bregman is one of these rarely seen professionals in the US that would not make you feel like you went to chat with a suit wearing businessman that will just prescribe you pills and charges the insurance hundreds of dollarsfor it. He spent the time to get to know me and asked me all the right questions. Took various tests that were needed, made me feel comfortable, gave me a direction and advices and I left his office feeling much much better! I would would highly recommend Dr Bregman! Ev

I went to Dr. Bregman's office for a general checkup and had some additional medical concerns. This is a tiny office and they have a cute beagle who walks around sometimes. The staff got me checked in immediately and I wasquickly in the exam room. The assistant was very nice and walked me through the standard physical procedures quickly and expertly. Dr. Bregman seems very smart and experienced but has a no-nonsense manner - He commented on my concerns quickly with no small talk. I was very comfortable with this but if you are looking for a doctor who is a little gentler or friendly this might not be a great fit. Overall my first impressions were good and I plan on returning.

I'm so thankful I found Dr. Bregman and his team. I was feeling horrible over the weekend and he saw me right away. His team was really accommodating and even cleared a room for me to lay down while I waitedfor my x-ray results. Dr. Bregman was so thoughtful and made sure I got my x-rays done quickly. He explained everything in such detail I felt much better about my diagnosis afterwards. I really could not speak more highly of a doctor in NYC. Thank you thank you!

Needed a pulmonary 2nd opinion and chose Dr. Bregman. I had to wait over an hour, and while I was sitting there I had to listen to a very unprofessionally acting nurse/front desk staff lady yelling and cursing into the phonewhile checking someone's insurance status. Looking around the waiting room, everyone else seemed quite uncomfortable with this situation too. After an hour or so I finally saw Dr. Bregman. His office STANK (there is no other way to describe it, sorry). No open window, his office door closed, no fresh air. I almost left immediately, but chose to wait it out. Dr. Bregman then constantly interrupted me, asserting his "I'm the doctor and know better than you" attitude, telling me far-fetched stories and going off on a tangent which had NOTHING to do with the reason of my visit. Eventually, after about 40 minutes of lecturing he then decides to become my new primary care physician and fills out addtl. forms with questions all related to "new patient" data. Dr. Bregman has a very domineering personality and the overall visit was VERY unpleasant. Needless to say I'll never return back to his office. On the positive side, his nurse who administered the lung breathing tests and took blood work is a VERY nice lady.

I've been going to Dr Bregman for years. He has a BIG personality which might not be everyone's cup of tea, but for me it means that every appointment is entertaining. He truly cares about his patients, knows A LOT, hasgreat intuition, and will spend as much time with you as it takes. Which also might mean that your waiting room time might be a bit longer.

Dr. Bregman is nice enough, but doesn't seem to really listen to his patients. I went in with a complex problem and a referral for a specific issue with a specific, objective diagnosis. He disagreed, wanted to spend a lot oftime and my money on other tests which I did, and finally since his test results came back as fine (disregarding other very abnormal blood labs) asked if I wanted a psych referral. I'm sorry, but I'd spend my time with someone who has graduated medical school a little more recently.

Dr. Bregman is a straight-to-the-point type of guy, which I really appreciated but may be a turn off to some. He was very inquisitive and thorough with my medical history. There are a lot of doctors that just look at testresults and immediately jump to a diagnosis without much thought. Dr. Bregman definitely takes his time and asks a lot of questions before jumping to any conclusions, which I also really appreciated.

Dr. Bregman was very personable, and an excellent doctor. I have been under the care of a doctor from Murray Hill Medical for a week- and in bed not getting better that whole week. Dr. Bregman asked a lot of questions,did a thorough exam and was confident in the diagnosis he gave- as am I.
