What Our Patients Are Saying
Talking about David Berlin, M.D.
"An great clinician teacher who has an astute flair of clinical judgement. He deeply understands the theory behind clinical practice. He has a genuine, approachable character."

Talking about Dana Zappetti, M.D.
"Very easy to talk to - did not rush me - very thorough"

Talking about Fernando J Martinez, M.D., M.S.
"Dr. Martinez is one of the best physicians I have seen in New York. He combines great clinical expertise with compassion and warmth. Though he is a pulmonary specialist, he is concerned about all aspects of his patients’ health. Unlike many specialists at teaching hospitals in New York, he does not exhibit the “God complex” so many doctors in Manhattan have, and will coordinate with other physicians at Weill-Cornell and other hospitals as needed to get his patients comprehensive medical care."
