Dr. Maddineni had great bedside manner, listened very carefully to my concerns and took her time explaining things to me. She preformed precautionary tests which helped me feel much better about my reasons for seeing her. I had a great experience and will continue to see Dr. Maddineni as my primary care physician.

I would recommend Dr. Raffinan to anyone and cannot believe how amazing he is at his job. I’ve been turned away by multiple doctors and specialists saying there’s nothing wrong and he took the time to listen, break everything down, make suggestions, and offer any possible help. Thank you!

Dr. Hailu is wonderful! Thorough and honest, and has great bedside manor. She made me feel very comfortable right off the bat. She spent a good amount of time asking questions and getting my medical history and my family’s before we jumped into why I was there. I really appreciated all the knowledge she had to offer and all the tests she wanted to run to ensure we got down to the real cause of my symptoms. She gave me clear directions for my next steps and her staff was on the same page with everything. She is also very pro preventative care which I think is a huge plus in a general medicine doctor. Regarding the office, everyone was polite and accommodating. Paperwork was digital and easy, and the pre-appointment communication was clear. Highly recommend!

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.

He was extremely friendly and listened carefully to what I said. He didn't judge my lack of getting regular preventative care; it was more the feeling of "let's have that done, shall we?" but it felt very empathetic. Overall a very good visit.

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.
