Dr. Alexander Istomin, MD is the most caring doctor I have come to know out of 55 years. He is objective while listening to what the patient has to say and works together to resolve situation with my health. Dr. Istomin has always pointed me in the right direction when help is needed outside his office for specialty help. His staff is always great.

Literally the best doctor I've ever been too. I'm 55 years old and have had chronic back pain for about 5 years and every doctor I've been to just wants to prescribe me narcotics and push me off to the side! Not this doctor. He was very concerned and compassionate about my situation and promised me he would help me get off the narcotics and live pain free!!! He even scheduled me steroid injections within 2 days of my visit!! That's something my last doctor never did in 4 years!

Dr. Alexander Istomin is very reliable and kind. He knows how to treat people not only with medication, but also with words by talking with patient. I had terrible coughing,- I had pneumonia, that is gone now. When I first came, he diagnosed the disease and immediately started the treatment. Besides it, he is very educated, has great knowledge and always had for me pretty good advices for my health. I am really glad that I found in New York such a nice doctor. I recommend him and will recommend!

I have been with him for 14 years. Two kids later! He took great care of me. Professional and yet, a good sense of humor! His staff is wonderful too! Back then, two friends of mine who were nurses recommended him! NO REGRETS! He is the best! Also, if you ever need a referral for any other doctor, he has never let me down and all of his referrals have been wonderful!

Dr. Alexander Istomin, MD is patient, amiable and thorough. A top notch professional, he never makes me feel rushed and my symptoms are never trivialized. He has good bedside manner. He listens to your concerns, big or small, and makes careful suggestions that seem to be in your best interest. I complained about some aches and pains and he suggested a wait and see approach which I appreciated, unlike other doctors who may prescribe you something just to look like they're being proactive.

This was the first time I saw Dr. Istomin. His bedside manner was excellent as he took the time to hear my medical history and really listen to my health concerns. He was knowledgeable, professional and very nice. He took care of my health need and even ordered some bloodwork. Dr. Istomin was very thorough and I felt confident in his diagnosis and treatment. I will definitely come back and plan to have my family be seen by him. Very pleased!
