How was your experience with the doctor?This is literally ridiculous. So disappointed. The first time I went to this office the staff was so rude, they are always on their phones. anyway I was just going to see my doctor. Dr. Zane Martindale is such a good man, friendly and so respectful. He's awesome. Highly recommend. After I got my results, my bill was a mess Westside Family Medicine said that United Health Care didn't want to pay for my bill, that they didn't want to be responsible for it. But the truth was that I wasn't using UHC anymore I CHANGED IT a month before I went to see the doctor. So I was using Emblem Health as my only insurance active. It took me 5 months to resolve the issue. So I was like I need to see the doctor, so I made an appointment to see him. the day of my appointment I got a long text message at 5:53 AM (Who does that?) saying that I have to call my insurance and let them know that i have to switch my PCP to someone that I don't even know, when on my insurance card says clearly that my PCP is Dr. Martindale. I couldn't call my insurance that day because I was on my way to work that's why I choose the time I was able to go. So I canceled my appointment after they told me to do that, also there was no need to do that. I have never done anything like that with my last PCP. NEVERSo at the end of the day I got charged $40. for canceling my appointment. All I have to say is that "It's an easy way to make money" not ok in any way.. Now I'll call my insurance company to choose another PCP even tho I was completely fine with Dr. Zane it is what it is. So SAD.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Bertie Bregman is just great. Everything you would want in a Doctor. He has helped me through some rough patches and I look to him for guidance. Maybe the best bedside manner I have ever experienced and so knowledgeable.  All and all, he just has a good practice.

How was your experience with the doctor?Let me start off by saying that Dr. Gaur is the best doctor I've ever had. Patient. Considerate. Thorough. Thoughtful. A really rare find of Primary Care Physicians in the city of New York. Arguably the best doctor I've had. However, the practice's administration is terrible.1. I had to cancel a ZocDoc appointment. I did so AND followed-up with a call. Was told I wouldn't be charged the $40 cancellation fee. Wrong! Was charged and billed as though the agreement never happened.2. I previously paid a co-pay of $20 which wasn't recorded. So now my total due is $60! 3. Can never get "Olga" from billing on the phone. It's always, please send a message on Klara and we'll get back to you. It took unnecessary energy to get this rectified. I believe they are committing levels of fraud that go undetected. Not by me though! I will fight tooth-and-nail for every $ they charge me incorrectly. Took about 3 months to get this above situation resolved. 3 entire months. 4. I recently (10-17-2019) received a bill for $150. Why? Because a visit 2 months ago wasn't input with insurance correctly. This was supposed to be a wellness visit (100% covered by insurance). I received a message stating that the practice billed it incorrectly and it will take 4 weeks to rectify. It's terrible what's happened here. They used to be so good (been with them for about 6 years).5. This is a 50/50 split of blame here. I have bad allergies to my cat and asked for a medication to be refilled for me on their online platform. They didn't prescribe it initially and was told that it requires a visit. No problem. As a New Yorker, we're all busy and all on the go. I asked if I can do a phone consultation or video conference consultation for a simple allergy medication. Their response? "That will cost $50". My deductible is met. My co-pay less than half of that. Thanks Westside Family Medicine. You do not deserve Dr. Gaur. Shame on you for being greedy, employing staff who haven't been performing well over years and just terrible management. As soon as number 5 happened, I immediately found a new doctor that same day at NewYork-Presbyterian Hopsital Medical Center closer to home. They don't deserve Dr. Gaur.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr Bregman is a great doctor.  The entire experience was seamless, from booking on their new online platform Qwell, to the receptionist greeting me in the waiting room, to the professionism of the medical assistants.  Dr Bregman is smart and has a great bedside manner which put me at ease the whole time.  I am lucky to have found such a great doctor at Westside Family Medicine.

How was your experience with the doctor?I give this place a five star, mainly because of Kimberly Dy, whom I recommend highly. My review from another post:Kimberly Dy is an exceptional nurse practitioner. I highly recommend her over any practitioners--including general practice MDs.I have seen Kimberly for a little over two years--approximately 5 visits--from regular physical checkups to other medical issues. Initially, I wanted to see an MD, but I found Kimberly to be more caring, knowledgeable, and thorough than MDs/practitioners I had visited in the past. After my first appointment with Kimberly, I recommended her to my spouse, who would eventually see Kimberly for the annual physical checkups and other concerns. We both consider her our PCP (Primary Care Physician) and went to her for all general care one would get from a PCP.In one instance, as an example, I saw Kimberly for an unknown/relatively uncommon symptoms, and she impressed me by asking whether I experienced other detailed/specific symptoms all from memory--as alluded to above, she's very knowledgeable and thorough--I did look up those symptoms prior to the visit to appreciate her asking relevant questions. Kimberly did not think there was anything to be worried about based on my responses to her questions, gave me samples to try out for two weeks, and gave a referral to a specialist in case I wanted to make sure. (I did eventually go to the specialist, and found out there was nothing to worry about, just as Kimberly had suggested.)To summarize, Kimberly Dy is an exceptional practitioner and patients should definitely at least try her out, for medical care or any conditions for which one would normally see a PCP.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Bregman and his staff of doctors are great.  There are several doctors and physicians assistants that work here, so it's relatively easy to get an appointment, even same day.I like how the doctors take lots of time to understand any concerns.This office used to have issues with administrative communication, but they've solved the problems with their innovative secure messaging system.  Now I am able to easily communicate directly with the doctors and ask follow-up questions.Also, their electronic appointment system makes it super simple to book an appointment - I can even select a specific doctor if I want.

How was your experience with the doctor?I've been coming to WFM for several years for sick visits and check-ups and I've always been able to easily get an appointment (even on the same day), the doctors (I've been Dr Bregman and Dr Gaur) have taken time to talk through any issues or questions, are great at explaining what's going on clearly and they are always responsive to my health concerns. I could not recommend this practice more highly.

How was your experience with the doctor?I'm updating this review. Doctors were good. Billing is not. After 16 months a bill was resolved. It just took me calling United Healthcare regularly for a year for them to reopen the claim that was closed when WFM billing didn't respond to them. Confirm all billing BEFORE you see a doctor and I'm sure your experience will be fine.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Gaur has been a wonderful primary care doctor. He's very patient, answers all of my questions and I never feel hurried or rushed. He has a great smile and a wonderful disposition. I honestly don't understand the low rating for Westside Family Medicine on Yelp. It's completely unwarranted. Dr. Bregman and his staff are all fantastic! I live in the Northeast Bronx, but I gladly commute into the city to get the expert care that I always get at Westside Family Medicine.

How was your experience with the doctor?I've been coming to WFM for about 11 years now and cannot say enough about the medical staff. Both Jeremy Stoepker (MD) and Kimberly Dy (FNP, MSN, NP) are warm, knowledgeable, and comprehensive as hell. They're A-level.Unfortunately, Dr. Stoepker is leaving the practice, which is a real shame. He's by far the best doctor I've ever had and his understanding of LGBTQ health is unparalleled. I have half a mind to relocate just so I can keep him as my GP (half-joking). Thankfully, Kimberly Dy is an incredible NP. I'm lucky to have her as my go-to...and, from what I've heard, the other doctors are all excellent.  There have been times when the administrative staff sent me to an incorrect location or lost my appointment entirely but these issues seem to be less frequent since the implementation of "Klara" as their primary mode of communication. Bottom line: Superb doctors, excellent NP, and an improving administrative system/staff. I recommend Westside Family Medicine to all of my friends in NYC.  Oh!...and the phlebotomists, in my experience, are rockstars!

How was your experience with the doctor?The nurse poked my arms 4 times for the blood work. They couldn't find my veins, I left with two needle holes on each arm and bruises.   They asked me: "Is it usually difficult to get your vein?"    No, it's not. I do regular blood work at a hospital, and I've never been poked more than once.

How was your experience with the doctor?All of my reviews are in relation to primary care and minor sicknesses for a young adult. Everytime I have been at westside I have had very little wait time. I also like that they are digital and I can communicate via app and text with quick responses from thier team on my phone. All of the primary care nurse practitioners were extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient. To me more so than MDs I have delt with in the past. They seem to have a good digital database system where all of my previous records are kept and I never have to redo paperwork. There has been no instance where I have been randomly charged with fees for services that were not communicated to me beforehand. For primary care I have been very satisfied.

How was your experience with the doctor?I have seen NP Kennedy several times over the past few months - both for me and for my 2 children.  She has always been incredibly professional, engaged, thorough, thoughtful and super competent.  I actually didn't know that she was not an MD until I had been to se her several times and finally took notice of the "NP" designation on zocdoc.  She does everything an MD would/could do, and she's got great hours.  I've been choosing her over the doctor we typically see. And did I mention that she's super responsive! She always super good about responding to messages.  Unequivocally recommend her!

How was your experience with the doctor?The doctor I deal with are great.My main problem with this company is the customer service and there policy information. They say you can cancel within 24 hour not to be charged a fee. If I make a same day appointment and can't make it I still get charged. How does that make sense. When will the 24 hour pass. The system Klara is unreliable because you have work with different chat when you can't just speak to one person at a time...They need to get there operation in order when it come to that app.
