I was terrified to have a thyroid biopsy to evaluate nodules. Dr. Minkowitz’s assistant set the tone with his friendliness as he questioned me about my medical history. He set me at ease. When Dr. Minkowitz started to set up the procedure, his excellent bedside manner continued to reassure me. The procedure itself was only five seconds or so, and in his competent hands was very tolerable.. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Minkowitz is incredibly kind, professional and unquestionably an expert. His biopsies are painless and the results are promptly delivered! His demeanor puts nervous patients at ease despite the fear involved with such a procedure. There’s no one I’d trust more to perform my biopsy.

I've been monitoring thyroid nodules with Dr. Minkowitz for several years . Though previously benign, this year one presented unclear so the Dr recommended a Gene test to establish whether need for further action. The insurance denied the test based on wrongly accumulated info: wrong biopsy date and finding. Dr Minkowitz refused to help me, refused to clear up the misunderstanding, refused to resubmit my info. He wiped his hands clean of me after 4 years of affiliation. It was suggested I see an endocrinologist which turned into another fiasco: they deal with the results of the test...finally a kind secretary at Minkowitz said she would resubmit my paperwork today. My stress level is beyond anything I've ever experienced. A close family member is in late stage Altzheimers and I suffer from a mental condition which normally is under control. I just want this whole matter to be over.

Dr. Minkowitz performed a needle aspiration on three nodules found on my thyroid. He said the aspirations would be painless and they were. He told me I would feel minimal discomfort (5 seconds of pressure) and he was right. He then took the cells and viewed them under a microscope immediately and reported that with a preliminary view he could see no abnormalities, but said he did have to conduct a more extensive view. I am confident in his findings. The office is well run and stick as close to the scheduled appointment as possible. I would highly recommend Dr. Minkowitz.

Made me wait 3 hours. When I asked how much longer do I need to wait. They said 4 more people before you.

Today was my 1st time visiting Dr. Minkowitz in his Staten Island office, I would highly recommend him,his bedside manner is very courteous and kind, supportive,especially for a person like me who is so afraid of needles, in which he did a biopsy in his office and a sonogram of my thyroid, no waiting time as far as my scheduled appointment was concerned, ultimately his staff was great,as was he!!

Dr. Minkowitz is a kind and friendly doctor. Made me feel calm during a really scary procedure for me. I must say that there was no wait time and the fact that I got the results right away was a plus. I will definitely refer him to my friends and family. Very satisfied.
