I started my private practice in 2003 with the purpose of offering individualized and more attentive care than it would usually be possible in a hospital setting. This allows me to offer reasonable fees and cash rates, particularly in today’s environment with increased direct patient’s expenses. For example, my rates for self paying patients are among the lowest in Manhattan ($300 for the initial consultation and $150 for follow-ups). Also, being an independent physician, gives me more freedom to set an accommodating schedule. My practice regular business hours are 8am-5pm, with after hours and Saturday’s visits routinely available. I value my independence and relationships I have built with my patients over the years.
