Dr Soma has a great bedside manner. I appreciated that she answered my questions thoroughly. I also like Dr Soma forward and modern way of booking appointments online. However, I would like to get results electronically instead of or in addition to via traditional post. Seems like this would be in alignment with her online profile system. The best way would be for her to be able to integrate here internal electronic system with and external interface so that patients can see their record, including results from any tests.

Dr. Soma Mandal has been my primary care doctor and also my husband’s for over two years. She has allways been a good help for me and for my husband whenever we needed her: very helpful, knowledable, sensitive and organized. I could not ask for a better doctor.

I had a truly positive experience. Dr. Mandal saw me on time, was articulate and efficient throughout the exam and I was treated quickly, thoroughly and courteously…an experience I have been long without in the New York health care system. The office was clean and warm and welcoming. It was an all around pleasant visit,which is remarkable considering how desperately unwell I was.

This was my first time seeing Dr. Mandal and I plan on keeping her as my primary care physician. I came to her with a slew of concerns to which she carefully listened, prioritized and addressed in a very immediate and direct manner. She even provided contact info for each of the additional specialists that were suggested.

I went to see Dr. Mandal for a routine physical. I had not had a physical in several years because, as someone who has suffered recurrent miscarriages in the past few years, my attentions have been focused elsewhere. I found her very professional – she asked all the right questions, was thorough, and did not make any assumptions (about tests I had already had, approaches different specialists had taken, etc.). I found her very personable. In short, I found her a wonderful doctor and I plan to return to her.

Thank you for this opportunity to express my opinion � it�s refreshing. My visit to your office was a pleasant surprise. You facility is neat, clean and appears well organized. Your staff was professional and cordial. Dr. Soma Mandal was professional and engaging. Although I was only there for a flu shot � a 5-minute appointment � I was treated with respect and efficiency. I would recommend Dr. Mandal to anyone who needs a primary care physician. In fact I have asked my wife to visit your office to evaluate for herself.

I chose Dr. Mandal’s practice because of the online scheduling system. It’s not the most modern-looking UI, but I’d never come across one before and now I’m astounded that not all appointment-based businesses use it. Face it, it’s silly to have to check your schedule against the office’s schedule over the phone and having to translate what you each see on your end. Dr. Mandal more than lived up to the promising start, seeing me on time and taking the time to answer any questions I had throughout the visit. She also gets back to you on any emailed questions really quickly.

I went in for a flu shot recently and was greeted warmly by Dr. Mandal. When I got home, I pulled up my shirt sleeve to take off my band-aid and noticed she had given me a Spiderman Band-Aid. It’s a very subtle thing, but it really brightened my day. Every experience I have had with her I have felt listened to and cared for, which I don’t think happens as often as it should in medicine. She is always very professional and thorough, but still has a personality (i.e. Spiderman Band-Aid). I feel extremely lucky and thankful to have Dr. Mandal as my doctor.

You never feel like you are being rushed. If you need an outside referral, she always refers you to another doctor who is in your network. She is a great doctor. I can’t say enough good things about her!

After seeing many doctors in the New York metropolitan area for a variety of reasons, I can confidently recommend Dr. Mandal’s practice to anyone seeking a private health care professional. Dr. Mandal operates in a wonderfully comfortable facility, which feels more like something you find in a small town rather than a bustling city. Extremely easy scheduling, plenty of timing options, and extremely easy billing options are among my favorite things that Dr. Mandal’s office offers. But aside from easy scheduling, is the fact that Dr. Mandal is simply an extremely professional, extremely informed, and extremely easy doctor to talk to; all winning points in my book. I am glad to say I will not be changing doctors anytime soon, and hopefully Dr. Mandal won’t be going anywhere soon either!

Dr. Mandal is truly an anomaly in this city full of frantically busy doctors with no time for their patients. She listens so attentively that she remembers conversations from your last visit, and always follows up in a timely fashion if you have pending lab results. If you want the mind of a scientist, the efficiency of the Tokyo metro and the caring of Doc Baker from “Little House on the Prairie,” this is your woman. I have never had a more pleasant experience at the doctor’s office.

I am a tough sell when it comes to MD’s. When I decided to look for a new internist, I spent time researching the internet and came up with Dr. Mandal. She strives for a relaxed and trusting patient-doctor relationship, returns calls, and actually listens to her patients. Recently I recommended her to an acquaintance who is anxious about blood tests and doctors. He was calmed by her presence and delighted with her approachability. Soma Mandal is different. Her micro-practice is the opposite of what we have come to expect of our physicians.

I have never been so satisfied in my life! Run–don’t walk–to your next visit!

Dr. Mandal is hands down the most pleasant and attentive doctor I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. In a city full of arrogant primadonnas rushing to their weekend homes, Dr. Mandal is an oasis of patience and knowledge, with a bedside manner that will easily put the most nervous of patients (such as myself) instantly at ease.

Dr. Mandal is very efficient and never keeps you for more than one minute in the waiting room. She makes it easy for you to schedule an appointment online, too. Her office is small and homey, so you never feel like you are shedding your clothing under a bright fluorescent light to be scrutinized. She is also very thorough and asks you questions to bring up topics you might not want to bring up yourself. All around she is a great doctor.

Dr. Mandal is so great, is easy to talk to, is attentive and is ALWAYS available. I love the homey feel of her office and the hands on approach that she takes with her practice. You never feel like just another patient being shuffled through a crowded germ infested office. Even though she has many patients it is clear that she takes the time to review your file and ask questions about things you talked about the last time you were in whether it was last week or a year ago. Her personal and extremely professional approach is so refreshing and exactly what you’d want from someone who is looking out for your health!

I have been a patient of Dr. Mandal’s for over 3 years. She is by far the most thorough and thoughtful doctor that I have ever seen. When she sees you she is very focused and listens to your concerns. She is also very careful and thorough. She is great at making sure you get to and see specialists who share her philosophy of patient care. I feel fortunate to have a doctor who has the time and patience to help me navigate what is often an unwieldy system of healthcare in the city.
