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!!

alfred B- Very professional, knowledgeable and pleasant. A pleasure to have a one-stop shop where the sonogram is done by the physician himself as well as a biopsy . No need to go to a separate lab.

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.
