Patient reviews for Dr. Roya Fathollahi
Great bedside manners, no waiting time, no hassle with paperwork. Excellent experience.
Fast and easy for an annual check up. Friendly staff.
It was nice and quick. She was informative and careful.
The office is lovely and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. Dr. Roya has a lovely demeanor and is able to provide many references. I was able to ask her anything I needed. The exam felt a little rushed if you’re a person who likes have a full conversation with your doctor. But, I would recommend her to others.
All of the staff was so friendly and kind! They were efficient and resourceful.
I came in for an annual visit but also to address potentially having anemia. I appreciated Dr. Fathollahi's detailed questions and her specific recommendations for other specialists, dietary changes, and supplements. She also did thorough blood testing to not only check for anemia but explore what type it may be and what other areas I may need to increase supplements or change my diet for. I'm also vegan and appreciated that her recommendations followed my diet rather than telling me to eat meat or dairy. I am definitely pleased with the thorough examination and recommendations.
Thorough, knowledgeable and so lovely. Took the time to understand my medical history and discuss treatment options. Also gave me referrals to other recommended practitioners that she trusted. Felt comforted straight away after the distress of my debilitating illness this week. I’m so glad I found this doctor as all the other GPs I’d seen didn’t seem to have the same care. Also zero wait time and the most professional and friendly reception staff I’ve encountered in Manhattan!
Nice, reassuring, quick, knowledgeable (to me), comprehensive
This was my first visit with Doctor Fathollahi and I had a great experience- The receptionist was friendly and the check in process was fast and easy. I waited less than 5 minutes to be seen by Dr. Fathollahi and when I was called in, she went over any concerns I had. During the exam, she explained everything as she was doing it- which was great. Highly recommended!
Great visit. I was seen right away as soon as I checked in. There is a phlebotomist on staff who was able to do my blood work while I was there (didn't have to go to Quest) and they called me with the results less than a week later. Dr. Fathollahi is very thoughtful and took the time to take my medical history, and give me some recommendations for issues I was having. I haven't had a PCP in a long time but I plan to go back.
She is very patient and professional, and pays sincere attention towards her patients.
Very professional and warm
Dr. Roya was very pleasant and calm. Everything was very quick. But what really stood out to me was her amazing nurse. I wish I got her name. Absolutely wonderful, warm and friendly. Not only did i receive my blood panel results in a convenient app, but i recieved a call right after as well to go through it with me.
Very nice doctor. Listen very attend to her patients. Recommend it 100%
The office is great and there was no wait time. The desk staff were excellent. The doctor was pleasant but she was also very rushed. She didn't want to hear my experienceof treatment recommended by another doctor as she had already made her mind up of my condition. I would have liked it if she had listened more, and felt less rushed (I was out in 7.5 mins).
Dr. Fathollahi always makes me feel very comfortable during each and every appointment. She was with another health group when I first visited her and decided to follow her to this location and am really glad I did so. I used to dread going to doctor appointments but under her hands, I always feel welcomed and comfortable.
Fabulous and thorough doctor. Cares a great deal about her patients. Office staff is very helpful and attentive.
Dr. Roya’s was thorough and made me confident in my decision to try her office. The entire office visit was quick and sufficient. Good bedside manner!
She was very nice and listened to all that I had to say, and was very sweet and knowledge. I brought in some medical papers I brought in from the ER that I didn't know mattered or not and she took a look at them either way. It all felt very comfortable and professional . One of my top primary doctor visits ever Thank you so much!
Quick, accurate, though perhaps a little rushed. The front desk in particular seemed very very busy / chaotic. Dr. Fathollahi was professional and kind, however.
Dr. Fathollahi is incredible- she is thorough, understanding, and non-judgemental. I am so happy to have found her and have recommended her to numerous friends. She’s an awesome primary!
She was not very talkative. It would have been nice to have a short conversation especially considering the fact that it was the first visit. However, she was super nice and professional.
Thorough, caring, and professional—Dr. Fathollahi is definitely a doctor I look forward to working with in the future.
Very personable and helpful, thanks!
Dr. Fathollahi was incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, and really put me at ease during the whole appointment. The front desk staff were also very helpful and friendly. Highly recommend
This was my first time visiting Dr. Fathollahi. I had read a bunch of reviews and can honestly say most of them are true. Although I did not get seen right away, Dr. Fathollahi apologized for the wait. She was very sweet and understanding. She did talk a little quickly but made sure that I had time to ask questions. She was thorough, quick, and took care of everything. I felt comfortable with her. I am definitely planning on returning :)
Excellent experience! They saw me right away and everyone was caring and professional
Polite, efficient, helpful, will repeat.
Dr. Fathollahi is warm, efficient, and helpful, as is everyone else at Manhattan Specialty Care.
I showed up 30 mins early and dr. Roya took me almost immediately. She proceeded to apologize for my wait even though I had literally been seen 20 mins earlier than scheduled. My experience was wonderful.
She was the sweetest doctor. Very engaged, informative, and caring!
She’s the best! Always so detailed and kind :)
Dr. Roya was very sweet, and professional. I like how quick my appointment was, and how friendly her staff is.
Dr. Roya was just fantastic!
I loved my visit with Dr. Fathollahi. My appointment was at 11 a.m. and I was called into her office at that very moment. I had a full physical with blood drawn and left by 11:30 a.m. It was thorough and she offered quite a lot of referrals for my issues. I highly recommend her. She is great! Thank you!
Professional and staff is very courteous.
Dr. Fathollahi was a great doctor. She saw me shortly after my arrival and even apologized for that little delay. She and her staff showed great care for my health and wellbeing during my visit. I think I will switch to her as my primary care doctor!
Efficient, courteous and on time.
Have been seeing Dr. Fathollahi for 3 years now and have even followed her to her different practices. Really appreciate her as a doctor - she answers all of my questions and is extremely patient and thorough.
Everyone was so nice and attentive!!! Definitely coming back ??
Dr. Fathollahi was very helpful to answer my questions and gave me great input during my annual examination. This was thorough and she really took the time with me.
Everyone was extremely nice and professional. Dr. Roya was knowledgeable; however, I was asked the general questions at 50mph. As a patient, I felt rushed. The interaction was robotic. Perhaps Zocdoc is growing her list of patients tremendously and she has many more appointments per day. I asked for a pregnancy test due to an irregular menstrual cycle. When I received a callback from the office to follow up on lab results, this representative did not mention the results of the pregnancy test but everything else. I asked about my pregnancy results and the nurse was unsure, stating Dr Roya did not mention anything so it must be okay (??).
I just went for an annual checkup. No wait time and I was out with 20min. She asked me a series of standard health/lifestyle questions and then did the standard check up procedures (blood pressure, listened to heart, etc). They ran a blood test right in her office and I was off!
Everyone in the office was great!
Dr. Fathollahi was amazing. Very attentive and explained everything I had brought to her attention. Pleasant experience and highly recommend her practice!
Dr Fathollahi was so warm and made me feel comfortable right away- she asked specific questions and also gave great advice and direction for special needs. I highly recommend her and her entire team/office- a very easy and enjoyable visit.
Office staff was very professional. Check-in process was smooth and efficient. I only had to wait about 10 minutes before Dr. Fathollahi saw me for my annual physical. She was very thorough and asked me all the standard questions as well as leaving time for me to ask her any questions. I like that they use an online Patient Portal that tracks my lab results. Overall, a good experience with a medical facility that seems modern and up to date with the latest technology and procedures.
Super quick, nice, and helpful!
