Best Doctor Ever!!!
Self-verified patient of Dr. Herbert A Insel - Posted on April 5th, 2020
Dr. Insel is by far the best Doctor I have ever encountered. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable but he is a warm and caring human being. He spent an unbelievable amount of time with me and I never felt rushed. He addressed all my issues and answered all my questions. I felt like I was in the presence of a family member. He did a comprehensive cardiac exam on me. He performed the echocardiogram on me himself on the first visit and did not designate it to a technician. I received my results that day in his office where he spoke to me at length about his findings. Upon calling his office to make this appointment, I was spoken to by a warm, friendly receptionist who worked with me to get me the soonest appointment possible at the time that worked best for me. In addition, when I called back the following week to ask a question, I was again treated in the same warm, friendly manner. I was transferred to Dr. Insel who immediately picked up the phone and addressed my concerns. It a rare thing, in this age of automation, to be able to call a Doctor's office and be treated in this personal manner without having to leave a voicemail. I would trust my life and the lives of my family with Dr. Insel!

My internist referred me to Dr. Insel about six months ago, I was anxious and concerned. Dr. Insel is an excellent physician who was very thorough and put me at ease, carefully diagnosing my problem. He takes time with his patients and there is no such thing as an unnecessary question. I felt comfortable asking him about all of my concerns. I am delighted to recommend him to friends and colleagues.
