Dr Diaz has been our General Practitioner and my Pulmonologist for Asthma for ten years. He has maintained a high level of personal attention and care, carefully considering our medical well being over a long period of time. He has been a terrific advocate during a couple of unexpected hospitalizations, intervening on our behalf, with meticulous follow up afterwards. He always offers a sense of humor and humility during office visits. Highly recommended.

My experience with Dr. Diaz has been nothing short of spectacular. After years of chasing a coughing remedy with many other distinguished NYC doctors to no avail, he solved my problem in my first visit. Dr. Diaz also treats you like an adult. He explained things to me via a computer screen demo and made me feel like I understood the problem as never before. I heartily recommend as a pulmonologist as well as primary care internist specializing in pulmonary function.

Nice guy but typical office visits consumes 1/2 day waiting, getting the phone answered is is pure luck, Bottom line the office is understaffed and overbooked. Don't bother

Dr. Diaz is always both friendly and knowledgeable. He doesn't push unnecessary treatment and always talks through options. I've been going to him for 6+ years so far and have yet to have a bad experience.

I chose this doctor because of his location; I thought I would be able to visit during my lunch hour. The front desk receptionist was extremely rude from the initial phone call and visits to follow. On both my visits I waited over an hour for a five minute doctors visit. When I discussed my displeasure to Dr. Diaz, he suggested I find a new doctor... and so I did.
