Dr. Medina is amazing - he's very good at listening and is incredibly empathetic. During exams he's gentle and explains every process clearly before he performs it. I see him frequently due to various GI issues and he's great at working with new symptoms as well as providing more options for medications and procedures. The secretary is also very kind and helpful. Overall they have a great office.

My experience with Dr. Medina was at JFK Hospital in which he was the attending physician during my stay. He was very soft spoken, comforting when I was actually thinking and thing the worse. Very Happy with the level of service but most importantly sense of empathy.
