Patient Reviews


"In all of my years going to a doctor, I've never felt so instantly comfortable and listened to. Doctor Insel is kind, patient, thorough and has a bedside manner like no other. I think the best part of my experience with Doctor Insel is that I didn't feel like another patient; I felt like a friend he cared about. It was such a wonderful experience to go in suspecting you may have heart issues and to be treated with kindness and professionalism."

- David F. (ZocDoc)

"Dr. Insel is a true professional. Very thorough in going over any conditions or symptoms to diagnose a specific condition. Makes you feel relaxed and will say an occasional joke to help. He will help you to understand anything which to the amateur can be confusing. Staff is also friendly and courteous. Office space is clean and modern."

- Jared T. (ZocDoc)

"Dr. Insel and his team were very friendly, professional and good at what they did! They conducted an EKG and a few other tests and Dr. Insel explained everything extremely clearly and calmly and proposed a few follow up steps without any pressure. I would highly recommend Dr. Insel for anyone looking for a cardiologist in NYC!"

"I had the good luck to find Dr Insel again after a number of years of separation due to insurance issues. He is competent, thorough, warm and attentive as ever. The serious problem I had was quickly diagnosed and swiftly dealt with. I cannot thank him enough for the care with which he keeps me on a healthy path. Pleasant environment and pleasant mannered staff as well."

-Aperte D. (Yelp)  


"I visited Dr. Insel after a issue I had a bit of scare hiking a mountain. I immediately found him to be caring, and compassionate, with great bed side manner. He put through a series of tests, and all throughout seemed genuinely concerned with my well being. Smart, and witty, I enjoyed the time he provided to me. I also saw a pulmonary doctor and wish he was half as personable as Dr. Insel. In short, he seemed intelligent and capable, and at the same time not clinically cold like you sometimes get in a doctor. He just has a great friendly way about him."
