How was your experience with the doctor?This was the most unprofessional experience I’ve ever had with a medical office. This is no reflection on the doctor, only the organization and communication efforts of the office itself. Atrocious.

How was your experience with the doctor?This office should be ashamed of how they conduct business and self-refer for procedures and treatments that patients don't need. The doctor was nice but realizing what they were doing of how quickly they move things in and out of the room to scare you into expensive treatments that they say is 'covered' meaning they'll take you for all your worth at your deductible. Ask questions and refuse anything the minute they start rolling machines in.

How was your experience with the doctor?Absolutely horrible service and very unprofessional. I walked in for my CONFIRMED 1pm appointment and they told me they left a voicemail notifying me 30 mins prior that they had to change the appointment to 3pm WITHOUT MY CONSENT. I was already on the subway on my way there and had no service to answer this phonecall. Thanks for wasting 2 hours of my life. Never again, what a joke of a doctor's office.

How was your experience with the doctor?I went for a new-patient physical and was a nervous, nonsensical patient, and Dr. Kakoulas and her medical assistant were super patient and kind. I had to wait a little longer than I think is normal because of a scheduling miscommunication and having to get and extra test done, but it was great to be able to have everything done in the same building on the same day. I love the online communication!

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr Pate was truly amazing! I’m looking into having surgery, and she really helped me out with a lot of questions I had. She wasn’t rushing to go see other patients, she took her time and I truly appreciate that! The staff was super friendly and her office was squeaky clean. Location is huge! The travel to her is worth it. I found my new primary doctor!

How was your experience with the doctor?I have to start by saying that Dr. Pate was incredible. She made me feel comfortable and was knowledgeable. She also made sure that if her staff missed something that it was confirmed to be taken care of. Unfortunately, as a new patient, I did not get to see much of her and. I can't say the same for the office itself. I have called 6 times this week and last week to get a referral that Dr. Pate's assistant or PA had written for me. The checkout desk claimed they could not print it so they would email it. Emailing something to me which is important for my life (OBGYN and Mental Health referral) should not take 9 days and hours of my life on hold or calling them multiple times a day. This is unacceptable and I truly hope someone will do the right thing and try to send these to me asap/

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Pate does a great job of balancing professionalism and warmth. I felt like a respected client (vs. a number or a "patient"). I also felt that she genuinely listened to me - and to my body - and made her recommendations based on that. Her office staff is excellent, as well.

How was your experience with the doctor?I moved to NYC from Chicago in August 2017 and delayed finding a doctor because it seemed so overwhelming. If I would've known my experience would be so wonderful, I wouldn't have put it off for so long! Dr. Pate was thorough, informative, energetic, and genuinely concerned about my wellness. I'm happy to say that I don't need to search for another doctor. I've found my primary care physician. Thank you, Dr. Pate!

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Pate was attentive & caring. She listened to me gripe about previous treatments with other MDs and was thoughtful in her consideration and referrals to other specialists. The facility is organized, and the front desk is equipped with Phreesia touchscreen apps for easy check-in. I waited for her for about less than 15 minutes between exams. It's a cardiology place, so they push to check your heart (ultrasound & EKG) so keep that in mind for insurance reasons. Overall, it was a good experience, and I will most certainly be back.
