Dr. Dropkin is great! He is friendly and helpful. There was almost no wait time and the front desk people were sweet. Also the lady who took my blood made it totally painless and was nice about my fear of needles.

Dr. Hinnant very much lived up to her reviews. She listened and took the time to talk to me about my concerns. She is caring and not at all dismissive. I've had a really hard time finding a primary doctor until now!

Dr Raffinan is a very pleasant doctor with a broad medical knowledge. He is very thorough, listens to every detail and takes them into account in his diagnosis. He takes his time with you to understand you and does not rush through. Overall one of the best PCP's I have seen. My experience with the office staff was also very positive.

Visit was smooth. Examination did seem a bit fast though, and while the experience was a good one, I would have preferred a more exhaustive assessment.

From the tidiness of the facilities, nice greetings from the receptionists and warmth of the staff to Dr Gonzalez's genuine bedside manners, I would definitely recommend him. He took his time to listen to all of my concerns and help me address them; and it never felt rushed in any way. The wait was none and they are also pretty tech friendly when it comes to communication with the patient- again, recommended!

She was helping two patients at the same time, that made me wait too long. At the end she did not talk with me about the outcome, the assistant just handed me a letter with instructions. But I am very satisfied with the appointment.

Family Doctors in NYC

Family doctors are primary care physicians that cater to the medical needs of every member of a family. This field of medicine does not limit its practice to specific organs or diseases but aims to provide overall care to all patients, regardless of their gender or age. According to the American Academy of Family Physicians, “family physicians are distributed more proportionally to the U.S. population than any other physician specialty.” Family physicians specialize in managing common complaints and diagnosing underlying diseases in patients. Being primary care providers, family doctors have a constant, long-term relationship with their patients.


Family physicians are medical doctors, and they go through medical school to obtain Doctor of Medicine (MD) degrees. To specialize in family medicine, doctors are required to complete a residency program. Typically, the duration of a residency in family medicine is three years. After the residency, residents are eligible to take a board-certification exam by the American Board of Family Medicine.

Areas of care

Family doctors aim at providing comprehensive care to one and all. The areas of focus include:

Choosing between family physicians and pediatricians

While both family doctors and pediatricians are qualified to treat children, certain factors may play a key role in determining which one you should pick:

  • Family doctors can treat every member of the family, saving you multiple trips to doctors’ offices. Family doctors complete their residencies in several medical fields, including pediatrics. This makes them qualified to care for patients of all gender and age.
  • Pediatricians are also primary care doctors who specialize in managing the overall well-being of children. They complete three years of a pediatric residency. As their main focus is children’s health, they can be better equipped to deal with kids. The only drawback could be that the patient would have to change their healthcare provider by the age of 18.

Other factors that could affect your decision include convenient location, finding doctors that accept your insurance and choosing a doctor based on availability.
