It was good. Dr Sultana bedside manner have improved significantly since my last visit over a year ago. The staff were friendly and professional. Downside of visit, I told the front desk that I had completed all forms online, she told me I still have to fill the same forms in my handwriting.

He is a great Doctor. He is so knowledgeable and he really is focused on figuring out what the issue is. He ran several test including imaging just to rule out. He patiently explained with pictures of the kidney and with his model kidney on what is going on. The front staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

I highly recommend Dr Reynolds. She was warm, thorough, and really listened to my son’s whole history before making any recommendations. Dr Reynolds also followed up the same day with a phone call to answer a question I had later posed to the receptionist. She really cares about what is best for the patient.

Danya Reich is the best doctor I have ever had. She is my general practitioner and my gynecologist, and I feel so comfortable with her. She really listens, without judgment, and she has a great personality. I've never had a bad experience with her or anyone on her staff.

Loved Dr. Lin. He was so thorough, a great listener, and extremely patient. He genuinely cared to listen to my history and health concerns. I was amazed that they offered an in house EKG as part of his physical exam. He is an excellent doctor with phenomenal bedside manner. I have not been to a PCP in 2 years but going to him will change my routine to be more regular.

Dr.Rachunow has excellent bedside manner and really made me feel at ease during the visit. I only wish I could've gotten my blood work and weight evaluation on this visit, as I don't have a lot of time to make multiple appointments. Finally, the front desk asked me for my weight information in front of other patients and colleagues, which I felt was unprofessional. Granted, their evaluation and screening rooms were taken, but a patient's health information should be kept private.

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.
