How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Herbert is the most charismatic and comforting doctor I’ve been to in my life. I have a huge fear of needles , so bloodwork and shots have always been something I avoided as much as possible. Dr. Herbert is so quick and enjoyable to talk to that I didn’t even realize we were through until I was informed I was told I could leave. I recommend Dr. Herbert to anyone who’s had crappy experiences at the doctor. His receptionist is equally as wonderful!

How was your experience with the doctor?By far the best primary care doctor I've had! Dr. Herbert is a very warm person and truly cares about his patients. He is quick to respond via e-mail and I always get my labs in a timely manner with a thoughtful explanation attached so I can better understand how to read through it. His front desk staff are equally kind and personable.

How was your experience with the doctor?Great visit. Dr Herbert is wonderful. He is really kind and takes the time to get to know his patients. He isn't just trying to turn and burn through appointments. I really enjoyed my visit. He listened to all my concerns and made me understand what I am seeing/feeling. He also has surgeon experience so his understanding of things is more than your typical primary care physicians. I highly recommend.

How was your experience with the doctor?His bedside manner was incredible and you can tell he really listens to you and wants to get to know you as a patient. He referred me to some other specialists in the city since I only recently moved back and don't have everything sorted out. He was quick and efficient and he is definitely the doctor that I plan on going to for as long as possible and his location is great for NYU students!

How was your experience with the doctor?I have been skeptically of doctors from a young age because of past traumas. First off he was EXCELLENT at his bedside manner. Very friendly and kind. He asked all the important questions and listened to everything I had to say. I am afraid of needles and he was gentle and talked me thru the procedure. He followed up within 3 days with results and his recommendations. Dr. Herbert is a great doctor. Thorough and caring!

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Herbert was the most incredible doctor I've had the fortune of seeing. Firstly, he draws your blood himself - which is something I've never experienced at a doctor's office, making sure he is fully involved in every aspect of your visit/follow up. Secondly, when my results came in over the weekend, he sent me a personal email on a Friday night to let me know right away what the results I was waiting on said - so that I wouldn't have to worry over the weekend. Such an accessible, personable, and dedicated doctor. If not for my new insurance, Dr. Herbert would undoubtedly be my go-to doctor.
