Hands-Down the Best Doctors in NYC

Our picks for the best doctors in NYC …speaking from experience.

Have you ever left your doctor’s office thinking, “Oh I forgot to tell him about this!” or “S/he really didn’t hear me. I don’t need this prescription!” Or perhaps, you felt rushed, and left without really addressing what you came in for.

Hands-Down the Best Doctors in NYC

Well, there’s another doc in town, a doctor who listens – a naturopathic or integrative doctor. Naturopathic and integrative doctors attempt to find the root of problems within the person, and subsequently treat their patients with natural remedies, before instantly turning to a prescription for medication. A great example would be someone suffering from migraines. What’s actually causing these migraines? Is it an overload of hormones? Can we adjust that naturally?

I recently wrote about the issues with modern medicine and doctors today. If you’re curious why you feel sluggish, or your health issues are persistent, the doctors that I list in this article will have the answer. Instead of prescribing a “band-aid” prescription solution (that will likely cause even more health issues from the side effects), these doctors practice homeopathic medicine.

What is homeopathic medicine? Basically, instead of putting a bandaid on the symptoms with a prescription (which is likely to cause even more problems), the homeopathic approach is to do tests and use natural supplements to figure out the actual root cause of the health issues. ie. WHY do I have a rash? What is causing it?… and then treat the cause, instead of the symptoms.

    I love this! I’m always believing in the saying that prevention is always better than cure. Having a check up is essential to prevent any health issues from worsening and help you to full recover. When do you visit your doctor? when you’re hurt and have injuries? of course you’re thinking that it’s the right time to visit and seek for medical care, that kind of mentality is wrong. it is also important to visit a professional and clinic for checkup and consultation even if you don’t have diseases and not sick, to know if you’re are okay and prevent diseases if detected as soon as possible.To keep you healthy and prevent yourself from getting sick, it is necessary to schedule regular check up with your doctor to maintain your ideal well being.

    Thank you for sharing this with us! it is rare for me and for my son Carl to visit a doctor and have a check up because i’m always making sure that we are always eating right. It is essential to look for a doctor who’s trustworthy and reliable. Ensure that you are in the right place, in the right hands of people whom you will trust with your life and well-being. Our health is utterly important. It is important to get involved and educated even with some of the common health issues.

    Agree! doctors are always all ears and available to answer the questions of their patients. they are ready to give their patients some tips. It is important for them to explain the diagnostics of the tests and they will explain it in a way that you can clearly understand it. I also think that they will also seek out and ask for their customers experience for them to improve and make their service even better. You are in utmost importance. A good doc and staff will do everything to minimize the stress level and calm you because it is their duty to help you feel comfortable; not to make their patients feel awful.

    Absolutely right! whenever you’re with your doctor you shouldn’t feel rushed because you’re a patient and you are asking for treatment. One of the traits of a good doctor is that you are always able to ask him/her questions and get feedback.
    A good doctor talks to you and discuss about the findings and make recommendations. if there is abnormality your doctor is ready to discuss these details with your options. Your doctor is always making sure that you clearly understand her and will ask if you have questions before leaving the clinic.

    I’m so glad I live in Canada and don’t have to worry about the cost of going to a doctor or getting charged for diagnostic tests. Obamacare is better than what you had but it’s too bad that the US didn’t go the public healthcare route.

  7. Great list! It can definitely be hard to find good medical care.
