How was your experience with the doctor?Have been going to him as a primary care dr and also as a GI. Had to have a colonoscopy, they put me into twilight sleep and I never felt a thing. Diagnosed a serious case of anemia that another dr had missed.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Orbuch is truly my favorite Doctor in the world. He's gone above and beyond for my care, is very patient, and takes the time to educate his patients. I haven't met another doctor with his level of competency, skills, and kindness. I couldn't rate him highly enough. He's the best.

How was your experience with the doctor?The staff members at Dr. Orbuch's office were very friendly, both on the phone and in person. I didn't wait very long to see the doctor and when I did see him he took the time to listen to me and answer all my questions. I'm very happy I went to see him.

How was your experience with the doctor?he listens, tries to pinpoint the root cause. I have seen him several times in the past 10 months, and he's been pretty "on point" about everything. Appreciated.

How was your experience with the doctor?he was very knowledgable and addressed all my concerns. I've been dealing with intense stomach pains on and off since 2015 and he's the first doc to acknowledge that this is an actual problem and we've laid out an action plan. I came with recent blood work so he could take a look at it instead of having to do it again.

How was your experience with the doctor?I’ve gone to another gastroenterologist who wasn’t very active in trying to figure out what’s going on. Dr. Murray was patient, he listened to everything and did a few tests to check for everything.

How was your experience with the doctor?I think he's great. He actually listens, which is not always the case with doctors. He took blood himself, fast and painless. He did the EKG, also quick and to the point. His facility includes an inhouse sonogram person, and she was good too. I highly recc Dr. Orbuch.

How was your experience with the doctor?This was my first visit and I have to say that I was very impressed by Dr. Orbuch. He was kind, thorough and very informative and I did not have to wait at all. Where other doctors brushed off my distress of getting bloated and having pain after eating certain food, Dr. Orbuch understood and cared and is sending me for further testing. I have no complaints whatsoever. I highly recommend Dr. Orbuch!

How was your experience with the doctor?The office and Dr. Murray Orbuch were very professional. My only problem was although I had made the appointment with Zocdoc and filled out a bunch of paperwork online ahead of time, the office did not seem to have any of that. Luckily they were still able to see me, but booking an appointment through Zocdoc was a waste of time.

How was your experience with the doctor?I was referred to Dr Orbuch after my doctor suddenly retired. As a long term IBS sufferer I was worried that a new doctor may not treat me seriously. Dr Orbuch was great, very friendly and sympathetic and immediately suggested some tests and treatments that I had never tried before. He even called me at home over a weekend to see how I was doing after trying a new medicine. I highLy recommend him.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Murray was amazing. He was SO knowledgeable, very understanding and patient and felt like he truly took the time to evaluate my whole person, before trying to nail down the issue at hand. Am so glad to have found him and 100% trust his expertise as a health care provider. ONLY complaint is 1 of his front desk employees was quite rude, and was very impatient when I asked re the wait...after I had been waiting mid day in a very crowded waiting room for over an hour.

How was your experience with the doctor?I would highly recommend Dr Orbuch as a doctor. He was thoughtful and offered time and insight. Unfortunately, I would strongly advise against making an appointment because of the terrible service of the reception desk. The rudeness at check-in was easy to overlook but having called 3 times for almost a week waiting for a reply on a prescription question, it is discourteous and unacceptable. Even asking, "what should I expect next?", her response was "I don't know". I said "ok, so should I expect a return call from you or dr or do you recommend I call back later or tomorrow?" Her reply again was "I don't know I just take the messages". Still haven't received a call back and now starting from ground zero with a new doctor.

How was your experience with the doctor?I booked my appointment with Dr. Orbuch on ZocDoc and sent my check-in forms ahead of time. Shortly after, I received a confirmation. Awesome! The ZocDoc web portal worked great, but when I got to the office for my appointment, the practice manager had no record of me. I had to fill out my forms again and wait an extra 15 minutes. This wasn't so awesome. However, the practice manager was super nice and moved some other patients around so I could see Dr. Orbuch right then. I sincerely enjoyed visiting with the doctor. He took his time, asked great questions, and took diligent notes. His bedside manner is excellent - he seems to truly care about his patients. Dr. Orbuch gave me clear and thoughtful advice and an easy plan on how we would follow up on my consultation. I look forward to seeing him again, though I hope he and ZocDoc can figure out whats wrong with the scheduling issue.
