How was your experience with the doctor?He’s the best Primary Care Provider I’ve ever had in NYC. He was super attentive, didn’t rush the appointment, made excellent referrals, the wait was less than 5min to be seen, and the office was very clean (which is hard to find in NYC!). I’d highly recommend him!

How was your experience with the doctor?If you have to go to a doctor, I highly recommend Dr. Pesala. I'm usually quite scared and put off by doctors. I try my best to avoid them. Dr. Pesala and his front desk team were very welcoming. I didn't feel intimidated at all. I felt like he genuinely cared about my reasons for being there, and he very clearly explained what he did and why did things. It was a very conversational exchange from the time I walked in. It was a very uplifting experience. Many thanks again to Dr. Pesala and his front desk team.

How was your experience with the doctor?Was super friendly! Very relatable and had a great sense of humor. I usually really hate needles but he was very gentle and it didn't hurt at all AND he tried the veins in both arms because I was dehydrated. And it didn't bother me one bit. I highly recommend him.

How was your experience with the doctor?I found Dr. Pesala very last minute as I had to change to a state health insurance plan recently and my previous PCP suddenly didn’t cover the plan I chose. It was very easy to book an appointment with Dr. Pesala and I was even seen early! I did most of my paperwork and had labs sent in before I got to the office but I was very concerned that I would not be able to get urgent medication I needed prescribed to me during the visit because of my rushed appointment to see him. It was the most painless, simple doctor’s visit in quite some time and he called my prescription into the pharmacy as soon as I left. Very grateful to have found him and would recommend!
