Dr. Primas is an exceptional physician who is available at all times. He is very thorough, knowledgeable and personable. I would thoroughly recommend him for both regular care as well as travel and emergency care.

Dr. Primas is the very best! I have been surrounded by doctors since I was very little, worked in medicine & have yet to meet an internist & urgent care doctor quite like him. He is thorough, attentive to detail, caring and compassionate. Oftentimes brilliant physicians lose their ability to relate to patients or treat them with patience and empathy, not Dr. Primas!

He takes comprehensive steps & evaluates patients by covering all the possibilities. He doesn't rush you out of his office or dismiss your symptoms. The diagnosis and suggestions always go above and beyond just basic treatment.

And though having a doctor treat you with warmth and kindness is not mandatory for quality care, it's a gift when you are treated by a doctor like Dr. Primas. A man who isn't just brilliant, but possesses wonderful qualities as a human being. I cannot sing his medical expertise or personal praises enough. Thank you for everything - the world is a better place because of you!

Outstanding Doctor!
In my experience Dr. Primes has always made me feel better when I'm sick. He's professional ,efficient, attentive,comfortable and always helpful.
He doesn't generalize illness. He really puts the time and gives detail about the situation.

He's passionate about helping people and very genuine. I'm lucky to have found an Incredible Doctor that I trust. Many many thanks to Dr. Primas. you are the best!!!!

I tried calling but his answering service was the WORST! I tried asking a simple question about whether during business hours the service answered or I could ask an insurance question to staff and the service wouldn't actually listen, kept interrupting, put me on hold, and was so condescending it was disgusting. Like working for an answering service means you're smarter than the rest of the world? It took three calls to get the question answered and was so difficult - for such a simple question that was well founded since I was calling AFTER the start of business hours and the service was picking up - that I would never see someone who hired such rude people to handle his affairs.
If you can actually deal with the answering service, you're a better person than me. And Dr. Primas, consider hiring a different service.

Business Response:

Dear Jessica. I am terribly sorry to hear about your interaction with the answering service we use when we are not in the office. Do you happen to know the time and date that this incident occured? It would be helpful for us to be able to identify the particular operator so we can bring it to the attention of their direct supervisor. Please feel free to contact our office @ 212-737-1212 to assist us in rectifying the situation. Thank you for bringing this to our attention so that we can mitigate this situation in the future. Please let us know how our office can be of any assistance to you as well. Kind regards, Dr. Primas

We were in NY a couple of weeks ago and I developed a heavy cold, which then affected my sinuses and my ear. Dr. Primas gave me a very thorough examination, and then prescribed antibiotics and cough medicine. I was well enough to fly home two days later. I was very impressed by Dr. Primas and it was a huge relief to be able to see someone so quickly and be dealt with so efficiently. Thanks, Dr. Primas!

My youngest daughter, Phoebe, and I were in NYC visiting a friend. When our plane was landing, Phoebe had some serious ear pain, but once we were on the ground all seemed well. Until around midnight.... all of a sudden, she was in intense pain and had developed a fever, also. I called down to the front desk of our awesome hotel (London NYC) and they said they would contact the hotel doctor. I rec's a call from Dr. Primus in less than 10 minutes! I was impressed already! He was on his way to care for someone who had been injured while filming a music video and would see us at about 1:00 - 1:30AM. Imagine my shock when he knocked on our door not quite an hour later. He decided to come check on Phoebe before going to the set. Dr. Primus is simply the most amazing physician. He was clearly very busy and needing to be somewhere else, but he gave my child the most thorough examination, all the while speaking very softly to her and calming her. He discovered that the pain Phoebe felt as our plane was landing was her ear drum rupturing. Can you imagine the pain she must have been feeling? Such a little trooper. Dr. Primus spent over an hour getting Phoebe settled and giving me the information I needed in order to schedule her for surgery. She would have to have another set of tubes in her ears. We went to NYC for a week and ended up staying almost three. Dr. Primus and the doctors he referred us to were all amazing. Dr. Linda Daly did the sugery the following day. Talk about knowing how to get things done...Dr. Primus knows how to take care of you whether you're from the farthest reaches of the globe or NYC. I wish he could be our family doctor, but he IS in NYC and we ARE in AZ. Still, I know a great doctor if we're ever unfortunate enough to fall ill in NYC again! That staff at the London were amazing too, but it really was Dr. Primus who saved the day! Thank You, Dr. Primus! You ROCK!

Dr. Primas is a great doctor. I first saw him back in '99 or 2000, when I was feeling ill on a weekend. Ever since then, he has been my primary doctor. Its easy to get an appointment, often for the same day, if not, then the next. The wait time is never long, and he honestly feels bad if there is ever a wait. His diagonoses have always been top notch.

The only con is that he doesnt take insurance, and even though he does keep his prices down, that can make it prohibitive to see him for things that are not needed urgently.

I have gone to Dr. Primus twice now on a weekend when my doctor was not available and I could not wait to be seen. There has never been a long wait and above all Dr. Primus is very knowledgeable, efficient, has a great bedside manner, and once when I needed to be referred to a surgeon, he was able to send me to a nearby doctor that was also available on the weekend and again an amazing doctor that I was so glad to be referred to. I have been to many doctors in my day and Dr. Primus is at the top of my list. \r
Thanks for being available on the weekend!

I visited Dr. Primas over a weekend where I felt very ill and my regular doctor was closed, but my illness did not warrant a trip to the emergency room. It was really a perfect experience. Dr. Primas is professional and thorough with a nice bedside manner, and there was barely any wait before my appointment began. His offices are pleasant and easy to reach. It is great to know he's available.

Dr. Primas is a very amiable person who blends his friendly personality into his medical care. However, his handwriting was a little sloppy, so I had a hard time getting the proper medication.

We were so happy to have Dr. Primas pay us a visit when our son was sick!!! It is terrible to go out when your feeling ill and I dreaded having to drag my son out when he was so sick. It's wonderful to have a great doctor visit you in the comfort of your home. He was so good with my son and thorough! He arranged for the prescriptions to be delivered. Being sick is never good but is now comforting to know we have Dr. Primus to call when needed! Thank you soooo much!!!!

I fell terribly ill on a recent visit to NYC. As a Brit Expat living in LA, I'm always nervous about healthcare in the U.S.! After speaking with my hotel, Dr. Primas was recommended. I am happy to say that I was pleasantly surprised! Dr. Primas was attentive and patient - I never felt rushed. I don't write reviews, but believe me, this whole experience was so refreshing and at such a critical time; I couldn't help but write. Thank you Dr. Primas!

I fell ill during a recent trip to NYC. My hotel's concierge desk had Dr. Primas come straight to the Hotel. He was kind, considerate, and very professional. \r
I understand that alot of hotels in NYC use him- and I can certainly see why.

Dr. Primas is most likely the top doctor in New York City. I had the opportunity to visit his comfortable, serene office for travel medicine purposes. I was impressed with his knowledge, thorough attention and consistent follow-up. He appeased my concerns and made the entire process easier for me. Dr. Primas is exceptional.

Dr Primus is one of the best doctors my wife and I have ever had. He is exceptionally sincere, thorough, and has a fantastic bed side manner. My wife was treated at home, and he even called every day after for a week just to see if there were any concerns with her health.
I for one was very sick of the apathy and ruthlessness of the family practice situation here in New York City.... Dr Primus has restored my faith in the medical practice whole-heartedly. Dont hesitate as Dr Primus is a very high quality
