I went for a new-patient physical and was a nervous, nonsensical patient, and Dr. Kakoulas and her medical assistant were super patient and kind. I had to wait a little longer than I think is normal because of a scheduling miscommunication and having to get and extra test done, but it was great to be able to have everything done in the same building on the same day. I love the online communication!

She went out of her way to make me feel comfortable. She asked many questions and dedicated enough time to understand my history.

Dr. Ruden is an excellent doctor. He is attentive, caring, and highly skilled. However recent changes in the staff at his office have created some challenges. The staff there tried to cancel my appointment an hour before I was due there claiming there was a “glitch” with ZocDoc, despite the fact that my appointment was confirmed a week earlier. They neglected to send my prescriptions to my pharmacy and I had to call multiple times to get them sent. They did a terrible job taking my blood, resulting in a number of large bruises. Furthermore, it is almost impossible to reach a person when you call, you are simply passed from answering machine recording to recording. Dr. Ruden himself is great but the office really needs to do some work to get back to its prior level of service.

Dr Pate was truly amazing! I’m looking into having surgery, and she really helped me out with a lot of questions I had. She wasn’t rushing to go see other patients, she took her time and I truly appreciate that! The staff was super friendly and her office was squeaky clean. Location is huge! The travel to her is worth it. I found my new primary doctor!

The wait was about 25 minutes, but I didn’t mind considering his wonderful office staff got me a same day appointment. Dr. Yaffe was kind, courteous, very friendly yet professional. He got me the medication I needed, explaining how it would work, and what the time line for recovery looked like from my GI issue. He also gave me a plan B- to come in for an endoscopy in a weeks time if my issue does not resolve. Really wonderful to have such a great experience. Not many doctors these days balance such experienced medical practice, with fantastic bedside manner. Dr. Yaffe most certainly did! I hope I never need to go back, but if I ever do- I will Know I’m in the best hands!

Dr. Pate was friendly and made me feel comfortable. She listened to my concerns and suggested logical next steps. I was able to get an x-ray and bloodwork done on the premises immediately after my appointment which was very convenient.

Dr Pate is very warm, listens carefully and asks thoughtful follow up questions. All the procedures are explained and they were helpful in setting up my referral. Highly recommend Dr Pate for anyone looking to find a family physician!

Been a patient of Dr. Rosen for a couple of years now and my experience never brought me to a point where I would want a new doctor. She's very nice and most importantly, competent. She listens to you (even when I know I was ranting!) and makes you feel that you actually matter. Thank you Dr Rosen and to your team!

I recently became a patient of Yaffe Ruden & Associates and couldn't be more pleased. Dr. Yaffe is responsive and knowledgeable, and the concierge service provides a whole new level of access and individual attention. The staff is always welcoming and diligent; I had a particularly good experience Karim Wahib in the orthopedics department. The recent addition of Manhattan Cardiology is another benefit given the extensive expertise of its doctors and staff, especially George Welch and Alyssa Topilow. I am so pleased to have discovered a physician group with such high standards!

I highly recommend this medical practice to everyone, they always excel in every aspect compared on my previous experiences with other medical center. With Dr. Soomro as my physician, I am lucky to be here since the place is excellent in dealing their patients and I heard they use much updated tecnological machines. I'm now confident in my health and in future aging as long as I stay with Yaffe Ruden and Associates

I have been a patient of Dr. Ruden for almost 5 years and every time I go to his office, I am always amazed at the service that they gave because of its efficiency. Equipment's used in different tests are in good condition and well checked every day. Staffs do their tasks well, competent and well organized. I am a living testament and a proof how the best Dr. Ruden is, in accordance to his great job done to his patient's. He is ASTOUNDING!

If I could review Dr. Christine Kakoulas separately, this would be 5 stars. I just recently went for my second visit here: An annual exam. Dr. Kakoulas is the most thorough doctor I've ever seen. She takes a full history (it seems that's a rarity, at least in my previous experiences) and truly listens, incorporating her findings into her physical exam. Her diligent exam technique saves lives in that her breast palpation (finally, a doctor that actually touches you during the exam!) catches masses early when something can be done about it. I trust that she's got my best interest in mind and I don't plan to go anywhere else for my annual physical. The phlebotomist after this year's appointment was also excellent. I gave her my traditional heads up that I can be a difficult subject (low blood pressure, tiny veins, tend to pass out) and she had the samples in no time. I never even had a chance to get clammy and try to pass out. Respect. The reason I did not give 5 stars was due to my experience last year during my first visit. Checking in was very tedious, there was a language barrier with reception, and they completely misspelled my name, despite my entering it digitally for them. After the always-excellent appointment with Dr. Kakoulas, they took blood and urine samples (it is so convenient to have this on the premises) but mislabeled the samples with the still-misspelled name. I noticed this and stayed to make sure they corrected it before I left. They assured me that was taken care of. Upon receiving results, they said I still needed to submit a urine sample. I said I had, I had even stayed to make sure they labeled it correctly, and I did not have time to come back in and give them another sample. I requested they cancel that portion of the tests. Months later, I was billed for the urine test that was never run. It took about 3-4 months of calling the doctors office and my insurance to finally get that cleared up. Overall, the office is good. I feel like Dr. Kakoulas is a gem and I couldn't be happier that a friend recommended her.

Dr. Soomro is phenomenal. She spent a long time getting to know me and talking to me about my medical needs, both in terms of physical and mental health. She was very thorough in asking questions about my medical history and in answering my questions. She was warm and friendly and I felt totally comfortable talking to her about things doctors have been dismissive of in the past. She was very thorough and detail oriented throughout the exam; she listened to everything I had to say and did not rush at all. Also, it's a small detail, but the vaccine administered to me was the least painful I've ever had. I am happy I found such a wonderful doctor! About the office/staff/etc.: after finishing my intake paperwork I only had to wait about 5 minutes until a nurse brought me to a very nice exam room (small, but very up-to-date and clean). She did the usual height, weight, blood pressure check, etc. and then I waited about 10 minutes for the doctor, which is much less than I'm used to. After the appointment I received my referrals from the front desk staff, closed out, and went next door to have blood drawn. It was all very efficient and everyone was friendly. The waiting area felt clean and comfortable.
