How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Kini, her PA, and nurse were all very kind and friendly people. I felt my concerns were addressed and the visit was productive in determining next steps for treatment. My only complaint is regarding logistics in that there seems to be little communication between reception and the physicians and the systems used (e.g. Zocdoc), which creates a less seamless experience. I booked a gastroenterology consultation through Zocdoc and the receptionist seemed to have no knowledge of it and assumed I was coming in for an annual check-up. While I clarified with her that it was a consultation, the nurse that I first met with assumed the same thing and I had to clarify again. She insisted that this was an internist practice and I assured her that I scheduled the appointment with an internist anyway. The confusion left me worried that I wasn’t going to be able to get my concerns addressed, but it seems they cleared it up by the time the PA came. Lastly, the doctor outlined next steps, but when I went to check out at reception, they had no clue what I was supposed to be checking out for and expected me to provide them with that info. It seems odd to me that the onus falls on the patient to execute next steps when the patient could easily misinterpret/forget what the doctor ordered and not get the right treatment. I had to have the receptionist check with the physicians to make sure as I didn’t remember all the details. This is probably the biggest area of improvement in my opinion, as I’ve never experienced it at other practices.

How was your experience with the doctor?This office cares more about money than their patients. As soon as I got in the office the receptionist stated to talk about having to pay $150 on top of my copay, mentioning my Deductibles and other finances, without asking what brings me to the clinic. The charged the copay while I was in the waiting room, without even seeing the doctor. It makes me feel like they though I was untrusted worthy, which I never felt in past clinics. The whole visit was super impersonal. Would not recommend, will not do there again.

How was your experience with the doctor?My appointment was a disaster due to many reasons. I waited for an hour and saw the doctor only in passing when I was leaving the office. The waiting room was packed and on the sign-up sheet I saw another patient who had an appointment with the same doctor at the same time as I did. Upon realizing that they double, if not quadruple, book the doctor, I could tell that I was going to be there for a while but chose to wait because of all the good reviews I read here. I was taken in 30 mins after my appointment time, first seen by someone who introduced herself as a "nurse" but didn't even know about certain illnesses, she measured my blood pressure with an auto monitor and has become the only person who has measured my blood pressure and didn't ask whether it is normal that my blood pressure is that low. She asked me to change to have EKG and disappeared. They didn't even ask whether I wanted to have EKG. Anyhow, I told them that I didn't want to have EKG because I just had it in May. Then I continued to wait. 20 mins later the doctor's PA showed up. At that point, it was already 55 mins into my appointment time. She gave unsatisfactory answers to a couple of concerns I had and left to get the doctor. After an hour, when I decided to leave to be able to make my next appointment, I saw the PA and the doctor speaking on the hallway and the only thing the doctor said was whether I didn't want to have blood work!

How was your experience with the doctor?It was so so great. Mannn I've been looking for a decent PCP in NY and finally found one I hope to continue with! In the past, I've had doctors who have told me the wrong information, had no bedside manners, or only wanted to get me to pay for procedures I didn't actually need. Dr. Kini was very thorough, kind, warm, and had my best interest in mind. It felt like talking to a family friend. It was only a brief consultation, but I felt I can trust her to guide me through resolving this health issue. I highhhhly recommend this office! And look forward to my next visit in a few months :)

How was your experience with the doctor?I have not been a patient of Dr. Kini's for long, but the times I have been at this office, I have gotten nothing but good treatment and respect as a patient. I have also been seen by the PA Patrice, and I am also pleased with how she's listened carefully to all my symptoms and health history. Often patients aren't listened to enough, or they are dismissed as if they don't know what they're talking about. But I have never felt like that here with Dr. Kini and Patrice. I am grateful to have found actual caring, highly professional, and very knowledgeable doctors in whom I can put my trust to help me manage my conditions.

How was your experience with the doctor?This medical office kept me waiting for 30 minutes past my appointment time before calling me into a consultation room. The staff was unapologetic and insensitive. In addition, only after I had been called into the consultation room did the staff inform me that the vaccination I had explicitly scheduled was not in stock and that I would have to run to a pharmacy to get it. As my appointment was on a workday, I did not have enough remaining time to complete the simple vaccination. In total, I wasted one hour visiting this doctor’s office. I would not recommend this office to anyone unless they have nothing better to do and have cleared their day’s entire schedule.

How was your experience with the doctor?This was my first time at this facility, with that in mind I arrived 20 mins before my appointment time anticipating paperwork. My visit was twofold- came here for an annual physical and I haven’t been feeling well lately. Ten mins after my appointment time of 2:30pm I was led into an exam room where I was seen. It was a great experience overall, I think I’ve found my new PCP! Karina, Carlie and Dr. Kini were all very thorough, talked me through everything and I felt very comfortable. At no point did I feel rushed which is surprising given how busy this office seems.

Overall, it was a very good experience.

How was your experience with the doctor?The doctor was great. However, I only got ~5 mins of her time and ~15 mins of time with her assistant (Dr Carli Johnston - was great - also highly recommend). The remainder of the 2.5(!!) hours I spent at the office was taken up with waiting in line and getting shuffled between different stages of paperwork. Highly frustrating.

How was your experience with the doctor?I have been without a good primary care doctor for a few years now and I went to see Dr Kini while quite ill. I found the staff and care to be through and great. My only issue is that the office is a bit difficult for me to get to while sick, so I’m still hunting for a primary care doctor a bit closer to home. If I can’t find one though, I’ll be using Dr Kini.

How was your experience with the doctor?This was my first visit to this office and first encounter with Dr. Kini. I was seen by both a PA and Dr. Kini afterwards. My visit was quite long, but it was because it was my first visit and I had to do a sonogram, which was done on the spot! That was very convenient for me. Also I have quite a lengthy and varied health history, so they wanted to be thorough and find out the best things to do for my care. I am autistic and I do not like going to doctors. I found the busyness of the practice stressful and anxiety-inducing, but I think the level of care I got was excellent, and that is far more important to me than 30 minutes of mild discomfort. I felt like everyone I encountered took care to not make me feel more uncomfortable/exacerbate my stress. I also felt Dr. Kini was attentive and interested in learning about my experience as a newly diagnosed adult with autism; she was not judgemental and was open to learning from a patient. Overall a positive experience. I hope to stay with this practice long-term.

How was your experience with the doctor?The doctor and staff were very nice, however, my appointment took the better part of three hours. You have to almost check out and get paper work for your blood work, then go to a separate room. A good portion of the time I spent waiting in room one could’ve been used to do my bloodwork. It doesn’t seem like time is of the essence here.
