Editorial review from Citysearch 12/18/2013

He and his staff are very accomodating and professional. Dr Liakeas is very professional but down to earth and can make you laugh. I really enjoy speaking with him\r He is very thorough when I go in for tests or diagnosis. He sits down to discuss with me what the problem is and he listens very well. He leaves a voicemail and sends an email very quickly after tests are done. I've never had to call for my results.\r \r His office reminds me that I live in a world class city.\r \r more

Editorial review from Citysearch 1/28/2013

Outstanding doctor. Dr. Liakeas and his staff are without exception a tremendous asset to our family. We still commute over 100 miles round trip for a visit as we cannot find remotely comparable care in our area. He routinely follows up with us after a visit just to make sure we're doing well and his staff attends to all of the relevant insurance paperwork flawlessly. I highly recommend Dr. Liakeas not only for the exceptional quality of healthcare, but also because he genuinely cares about his patients personally. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 1/28/2013

Dr. Liakeas and his staff are professionals that LISTEN, a true find! I've been a patient for 10+ years. Whether it be an annoying cold or something that's cause for concern, he can be counted on to provide the care required. more

Highly Recommended 12/2/2011

I'm writing because of my recent experience with the staff. I've been going to this office for awhile and recently had to request multiple referrals for tests&specialists w/in a short time frame. They were very responsive & quickly unraveled the sticky red tape my insurance company presented. With health concerns to deal with, it was a relief to not have to stress over this too. As anyone knows, resolving these issues is no easy task. It was nice to have an advocate on my side.\r \r more

Best Docs in NYC! 3/30/2011

The most caring, skilled group of doctor's that I've ever come across. Been there for everything, from thyroid to sinus infections. They're always so caring, they actually call you to follow up, it's like having really smart, old time country doctors, right in the middle of Manhattan. I highly recommend this. more

A great find! 2/15/2011

Staff was very nice and helpful with appointments, insurance, referrals etc. Dr Liakeas was personable, informative and took the time to listen. Not to mention a good sense of humor. Wait time was minimal. more

Since you can't tip a doc, I had to rate him 1/27/2011

Dr. Liakeas and his entire staff/office - amazing! I've been there for everything from strep throat to tendonitis to a broken toe with a massive hematoma, and have always left feeling ""healed."" The staff is friendly and very accommodating, especially when it come to scheduling last-minute, end of the day appointments. I've seen by both him and/or Dr. Grady at least 5 or 6 times in the past year (blame it on working in a school and running a marathon), and they always follow-up via email, no matter how big or small the issue. They also helped me navigate my shitty insurance in order to make sure things were covered. Also, Dr. Ian at the affiliated physical therapy office across the hall is also fantastic! Can't say enough about these wonderful docs - they make me feel like I'm at a small-town family practice. more

Best Experience I Had in a Long Time 8/11/2010

I went to Dr. Liakeas after seeing many doctors around the city who were just not right for me. I was referred by a friend who has been along time patient here. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. I first saw the PA there, Dr. Grady, who took the time to listen to everything I said. (I was told on the phone that since the office is so busy, I would either see Dr. Liakeas or the Physician's Assistant.) Once I was done, Dr Liakeas even made it a point to stop in and introduce himself to me and see how everything went. Overall, it was a great experience and I will be definitely coming back more

Just what I was looking for! 3/12/2010

I went here for my first physical in NYC, and after having an unsatisfactory and rushed first dental exam elsewhere I was worried that all medical offices were gong to be NYC paced. Not here though. Everyone was incredibly nice and mellow - it was like getting off the elevator beamed you to another place. They listened and responded to every single one of my questions to my complete satisfaction.They even referred me to a better dentist. Couldn't really have been better. Pros: mellow office, nice people, not rushed more

One of the things I miss most about NYC 1/19/2010

I really miss being treated by Dr. Liakeas, a/k/a ""Dr. George."" Not to get all New Age on you or anything, but Dr. George is just one of those people who was born to be a doctor. He's also one of those people who has memorized every detail of every Seinfeld episode. (OK, OK... this is just a fringe benefit.)\r \r Scheduling appointments was a breeze. Office staff were EXCEPTIONAL: They went the extra mile to get my insurance to cover as much as possible, instead of shifting the responsibility for navigating that huge system to me. When I was a starving grad student, one staff member gave me a pair of tickets to a Devils game he couldn't attend. How's that for service?\r \r Dr. George has a New Yorker's sense of humor. I came in with a little situational depression; he jokingly asked if I wanted to hug it out before going into ""the doctor questions."" That reached into the depths of my self-pity, and made me laugh out loud.\r \r His office environment is extremely pleasant. He's a doting father and husband. He can deftly handle Upper East Side ""entitlement syndrome."" He gives out his AIM name for ""less-than-ER-situations."" He's doesn't shy away from being contacted at odd hours, explaining that he doesn't sleep much. (Don't be alarmed: He has a lot of energy, and he's always 110% alert.)\r \r It was great to see Dr. George mentoring and supervising med students. He just seems to have a deep understanding of how his professional opinions should interface with a patient's own attitudes and preferences. Oddly enough, watching him navigate this interface may have taught me more about professionalism than I ever learned in law school.\r \r (Dr. George, if you're reading, please don't back-bill me for this. You *know* my insurance won't cover it.) Pros: honest, professional, humorous, great scheduling/hours more

This Doctor Rocks! 11/3/2009

Dr. George Liakeas is a great doctor. he always finds and makes time for me and thoroughly asks all the relevant questions and then some. This is a doc who knows to his mitzvah and how many doctors can you say that about? Pros: He cares and is very accessible Cons: That's the thing as far as I see has no Con more

dr l your the best 1/21/2009

i feel obliged to rate dr liakeas. i felt that a very thorough exam was done and also i learned a lot too including what other things dr l was thinking that most drs dont reveal. i felt very comfortable and got a good sense of what the plan was going to be. other drs including my gyn are very cold and matter of fact. if a question was asked they acted like i had no busy questioning what the dr was thinking. dr l was definetly not like that and most of all, his diagnosis was right the first time when other drs only care about referring me to someone else instead of doing their work first! dr l your the best and i will continue to send everyone in my firm to you! Pros: everything more

Great Doctor and Staff 6/19/2008

Great marks all around. George and his staff are professional, knowledgeable, and very helpful when you need them to go the extra mile for you. He works with some great Partner doctors as well if you are in need of other services\r \r thumbs up!! Pros: office, staff, care Cons: I live downtown and have to make a worth while trip more

very reliable 1/10/2008

busy doctors office (seems everybody uses him). very knowledgable and thorough. does not force visits but stays on top of you. highly recommended. Pros: everything more

Awesome Doctor 10/30/2007

I've seen a few PCP doctors and Dr Liakeas always seems to be right on mark:\r His diagnosis and action has always been spot on. I believe this is partly due to Dr Liakeas accepting a patient's feedback on what is ailing him and what the patient thinks is wrong. I know my body pretty well, having lived in it for 45 years. I am well educated and believe I have a good idea whats wrong with me when I am sick.\r Dr Liakeas does not hesistate to provide a specialist referral which is very good. (I dislike doctors that insist on numerous tests before doing a specialist referrral).\r Dr Liakeas has personally followed up with me a few times to make sure I was healing properly.\r Overall a great doctor who I will continue to consult in both sickness and in health.\r Pros: Works hard on a proper diagnosis the first time more

great doctor in nyc 8/12/2007

great experience. not like others. dr liakeas was very pleasant and down to earth but made objectives and plans very clear before finishing. he was very accessible and more importantly addressed topics thoroughly before ending the appointment. my emergency visit probably made the next person slightly delayed but i would have spent 6 hours in the emergency room just waiting to be seen. dr liakeas came highly recommended by my entire firm and lived up to his reputation. i have since recommendd him to my family and friends. \r the office was clean, professional, and ""hip"". there was no sense of sickness or negativity amongst the other people in the waiting room and the office / patients seemed to all be typical high end manhattanites. dr liakeas was dressed very high end but could clearly make anyone feel relaxed and heard. \r most of all, he correctly diagnosed me just by hearing my story and then did appropriate tests to confirm. i got my results the next day and a followup call a week later. highly recommended Pros: everything i said Cons: you almost want to get sick again just to keep in touch more


for fun i was searching people & came across the posting by jj. i laughed hysterically. i was a med student observing dr liakeas for a month and remember him telling me about patients like this. dr liakeas (who was voted professor of the year by ny meds' AOA national honor society) is unsurpassed in everyway as a dr & a person. i would know as i have worked with soo many md's & hve found him to be stellar at diagnosis / plan management / clinical acumen but most of all, i have never seen a dr who listens, cares, and follows up on his patient's as much as he does. he is super accessible and smart. what i did see were patients who would rudely insist on urgent then they would disrupt the day & other appts and keep him away from any chance at a break. (i have seen it), they would squeeze in & expect an hour of his time like this was a ""therapy"" session or something. \r what was really amazing is how many patients swore by him & told me horror stories about other drs. almost all of his patients are referrals and that says it all. the greatest thing about him was his ability to communicate and offer plans to address patients concerns. dr L makes sure to call back everyone and is the most organized person i have ever seen. this guy probably got a prescription for a medicine that didnt warrant a safety discussion but instead wanted the dr to hold his hand while urgent issues were going on. he didnt mention that he was probably called a week later by dr L to see how he was doing! as for the other dr, she is also very bright and professional & with a 5th Ave practice when not w dr L. other offices i know use assistants in place of an MDs care (and here jj ONLY wanted dr L). i guess you cant please everyone but if jj thinks he is going to find a better experience / service he should go to the doctors i have been to. i am still waiting for my gyn dr to give me results from 2005!!!!! but hey 1 bad review in 6000+ patients is pretty good i guess. good luck jj Pros: PROFESSIONAL, CARING, SMART, ACCESSIBLE Cons: EVERYONE WANTS A PIECE OF HIS TIME more

Scrip happy doctor 11/13/2006

Went to Liakeas first on a Tuesday, when I realized that he had absolutely no time to see me, and a woman who works with him on Tues and Thursdays started a whirlwhind medical exam talking so fast \r (so fast I cant even remember her name), not explaining a thing. \r \r That being a horrible visit, I decided to give Dr. Liakeas a second chance on a Monday, when the crazy woman doctor was definitely not in (he was a recommendation from a doctor that I love, how bad could he be right? maybe he just happened to be busy that day...) The second time I went in to see him, he was crazy busy... again. After waiting for about 15 minutes, he calls me and says ""I have another patient in the other room. Do you need a little bit of my time today or a lot?"" Considering that this was a follow up appointment, I said ""a moderate amount?"" \r \r No matter what insurance you have, I think its highly unacceptable to be asked that when you made an appointment well in advance. I think I probably said one word and all of a sudden he was talking SO fast, not even taking a breath, while simultaneously writng scrip after scrip of meds that I might need (but didn't want and didn't ask for)... and referrals of specialists that I don't really need to see... can we say ""dumping?"" Not one question about what my symptoms were, how I'm feeling... just some easy scips. No explanation of the meds that were being prescribed. side effects? who knows? I'll have to ask WebMD.\r \r If you are looking for an easy scrip, please by all means go visit Dr. Liakeas. Don't have the greatest insurance? Don't worry about it... just be prepared to say one word and he'll do the rest of the talking. If, however, you're looking to have a GP who might be interested in learning a little more (even 5 minutes worth) of why you feel the way you do, continue your search, this is definitely not the doctor you want to come to. Pros: What looks like a nice beauty parlor/salon in the same office Cons: everything else more
