How was your experience with the doctor?I felt that Dr. Bekhor was thorough, professional and caring. i was seen right away without waiting. Dr. Bekhor reviewed my chart that was submitted through ZocDoc. He asked about my symptoms and carefully examined me and then prescribed medications and set me up right away to be seen by another colleague. He administered a flu shot right away after telling me of it's importance. Another appt was made for follow-up to see if progress was made. The office staff was friendly and warm. The office was clean and in a lovely location across from Washington Square Park. I strongly recommend Dr. David Bekhor because he did good by me! I am happy to say that Dr. Bekhor was thorough, professional and caring, thank you ZocDoc.

How was your experience with the doctor?I came in with my husband today and realised what a complete waste of time it was! He is apathetic and is more concentrated on texting on his phone than listening to the client. He didn't even want to listen to what I had to say, dismissed my concern and told me that i don't have what i was diagnosed with while having the lab work results right in front of him , ( which clearly stated that i do. ) He told me that I should go back to the doc that reffered me to see a infections disease specialist in the first place and re evaluate my condition. Now I was appalled at how nonchalant he was towards the entire visit. I traveled for 2 hours to see this so called specialist just to be sent home with no help from him.. I came out crying my eyes out because I know something is terribly wrong with me and all he suggested was an anti histamine for an CRE infection. All i can say is IF YOU NEED HELP DO NOT COME HERE, DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AS I HAVE.

How was your experience with the doctor?Very impressed. First time visit and not only was I seen straight away but he was thorough (this was a travel risk evaluation-we went over a Day by Day itinerary to determine likely risks in the areas I would be busy and I felt totally comfortable with his professionalism. He administered the agreed upon shots and I was out of there. I strongly recommend him.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr David was excellent and thorough with providing travel medical advice. Due to the nature of my visit, the appointment and medicines was not covered by insurance so... tread at your own risk. The receptionist was not engaged - I stood there for almost 5 mins before she looked up and acknowledged my presence.

How was your experience with the doctor?Before seeing Dr. Bekhor, I had a bad experience with an unprofessional doctor. I was speaking to Dr. Bekhor about much of the same issues that I did with the previous doctor, so I was a little more on guard than I usually am. Dr. Bekhor instantly made me feel comfortable. I didn't feel judged, embarrassed, or uneasy in any way. Dr. Bekhor was also very thorough. I also appreciated that when I was called in I was brought directly to Dr. Bekhor. I didn't have to explain things to a nurse or anyone else first. He also had all of the information that I filled out on ZocDoc and used it. This was all great to me because I don't like when I take the time to fill something out or explain to someone what is happening only to have the doctor then come in and ask me to repeat it all again (which happened at the last doctor, who also used ZocDoc). This was my first visit and I have already recommended Dr. Bekhor to someone else. I am absolutely comfortable going to him again.

How was your experience with the doctor?We were seen right away. The place was very busy but the staff was still courteous and professional. The doctor did not rush us through our appointment (like many NYC doctors) but took time to discuss various treatments and recommendations for our trip to Africa. We were very pleased with the service and professionalism of this staff, and fully recommend them for anyone looking to travel internationally.

How was your experience with the doctor?Best primary care doctor visit I've ever had. I arrived on time, Liliana (I think) checked me in and I was seen by the actual Doctor exactly a minute later. He saw me for half an hour and this was literally the first time I've had an actual Doctor get my vitals, talk to me, weigh me, answer any of my questions and actually feel respected as a patient, instead of having a nurse do all the above and maybe see the doctor for a minute, like most of my previous visits have been. Amazing bedside manner, very friendly and professional; seriously, I've never before felt like recommend a doctor (and his office, everybody was very polite, prompt and respectful) before I even complete my visit. Amazing service all around

How was your experience with the doctor?The wait time at this office was very reasonable. Dr. Bekhor was kind and unhurried when talking to me. When I had a concern outside of his area of expertise, he gave me a referral to a specialist. Before doing anything, he checked for me that it would be covered by my insurance. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience.

How was your experience with the doctor?I don't like to post negative reviews, however being treated at this office has left a bad taste and a lasting negative impact on me.I should start by saying that I am a health care provider myself.  I lived and practiced in New York City until 2014.  I saw this medical group up until about 2011.  However, like I said, they've "damaged" my health history, and left a rather lasting effect.  I agree with other reviews in the fact that Dr David Bkhor seems to be well trained and knowledgable, however he does not realize that he treats people with health issues and not just health issues.  He doesn't really care to hear what you have to say about your health concerns.  He cares to write down a diagnosis that he thinks fits best (easier to bill that way).  I couldn't agree more with the review that said Dr Bekhor, should have stuck to research.  Being smart, does not make one a good doctor.  He may be smart, but he's a terrible healthcare provider.Let me brief and to the point though.Office staff is rude and oftentimes unhelpful.  Dr Bekhor will list every one of your slightest concerns, as a major medical issue.  In our world of healthcare, there is a code for every diagnosis.  Problem, is you may be stuck with that diagnosis or rather misdiagnosis, as it happened in my case.  I came in for quick physical, and was given 6 diagnoses, as I found out later on an insurance application.  I've had more than 10 physicals since that time and everything was absolutely fine.  When I called, Dr Bekhor refused to speak with me.  When I made an appointment and saw him, he refused to listen to me.  He said that maybe two of the 6 I don't have, but the other 4 diagnoses are correct since HE had SOME concerns about about those things?  He handed me a prescription on which he wrote in one line that "patient does not have these two conditions".  When I faxed it to the insurance company, they thought that this was a joke.  To make a long story short, DO NOT SEE DR BEKHOR.  Terrible bedside manner, terrible staff, and poor quality of healthcare.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Bekhor helped me through my stay at Mt. Sinai while I was suffering from a gastric infection. He is extremely knowledgable, attentive, and willing to answer any and all my questions. Following my release from the hospital after a weeks' stay, I had a follow up appointment at his office. Dr Bekhor is now my primary care physician.

How was your experience with the doctor?Finding another doctor and another practice are highly recommended. The review below from Max S. where he recounts that he received a termination letter from the practice - while remarkably unbelievable - is actually in this instance quite plausible.   I do not put this past Dr. Bekhor's personality.  Doctor Bekhor is a remarkably intelligent man, trained at McGill, and for those who don't know it is one of the finest schools in Canada comparable to the best schools in the US and Europe. He has missed his true calling however, and he should be better applying those skills and his great intelligence to a career in research.  Why do I say that ?  Because he is devoid of bedside manner, at least as I can tell from my time with him.  His demeanor with me included being aloof, impatient, verbally hostile to his assistant and staff, disinterested in what I had to say, and on one occasion he snapped at me (because of a misunderstanding his PA caused), and on a few occasions he was genuinely patronizing.   For one appointment I was late 20 minutes; I called the office over an hour in advance of the appointment time and stated I was being kept late at another doctor.   When I explained this to the secretary that answered my phone call, she said that being 20 minutes late was no problem, thanks for letting them know.  I signed in when I got there and sat in the waiting area.  I was kept in the waiting area for more than ninety minutes.  So much for "no problem", and in fact is was impossible NOT to take that treatment as a passive aggressive statement on the part of Doctor Bekhor.  As another professional person, it did not sit well with me that he presented the attitude that, as a medical professional, a doctor's time is more valuable than mine.This man is an infectious disease specialist and his patients are all in situations that are both physically and emotionally draining.  We don't need to be treated like this.  I have had the same primary care physician for 15 years, the same cardiologist for 10 years, etc.  I don't capriciously blow through doctors because of petty offenses.  These here have gone far beyond one little instance or two. Also in the other review's border-line racist remarks have been made of his office staff.  Sadly, I must concur that these are accurate observations.  Additionally, they made billing mistakes with my insurance.  I wish Dr Bekhor well, and hope that he makes a career change that better suits his talents.  Until then, I can not recommend him as a doctor, no matter how intelligent he is.
