I know it's a long review, but it's because he's awesome!!I had booked an appointment with Dr. Insel for a general cardio check up/at the time I thought I was having severe chest pain when in fact I was probably having a panic attack about stress.The office is very nice, convenient location, no wait time and the staff is very friendly. Dr. Insel was amazing, he listened to everything I had to say which means a lot to me because I am on the younger side and most doctors tend to not listen to me (he even let my older sister stay with me through the entire examination).Dr. Insel gave me a thorough examination, ran blood work (in office - which is great to not have to go to a separate location for a lab), and explained my results (which I had in a week) very clearly and booked a follow up appointment for 6 months. Probably the fastest turn around I have ever experienced with a doctor. Dr. Insel also ran more tests than any other doctor I had ever gone to, he really did more for me than any doctor I'd seen previously. I left his office very pleased and felt that I had a good clear understanding of where my health was. I wish he could be a PCP!!! He will always be the Cardiologist I go to and recommend to everyone. I greatly appreciate that he doesn't just want to be your doctor for one visit when an issue arises, he wants to have a relationship with his patients.I cannot express enough how great of a doctor he is and he's funny, he made a Star Wars joke - definite A+

Dr. Insel is by far and away the most impressive doctor I have ever visited not only in New York City, but anywhere. He is so warm, thorough, and incredibly knowledgable. He is just an all around brilliant physician and highly recommend him to anyone as both an internist and cardiologist.
