Dr. Rajeev K Babbar has the following 1 specialty
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

First of all New York Downtown Hospital in itself has very very very poor service. Often everyone is extremely rude; however, if you meet a good doctor which is not always easy, it is worth going to the temporary rudeness and unprofessionalism of the staff.Unfortunately this is not the case with Dr. Babbar. While I've seen a share of doctors whom I would not recommend to my friends, I never felt this much distaste against a physician. Dr. Babbar has very poor bedside manner. Often treats patients as if they are "intrusive." I had to repeat my symptoms several times on different occasions not because he forgets but because he simply does not understand that those symptoms seriously affect me. As a matter of fact, he once said "you should not be feeling that or the pain" instead of trying to see what the issue was. I went for second opinion and am being treated correctly for the symptoms. Had I not treated it right now it could have been worse. I don't expect doctors to be a problem solver of a genius in every illnss out there but there is a strong difference between a doctor who is concerned and interested in finding a solution instead of treating your illness as a nuisance.Dr. Babbar does not have the professional ethics of a doctor who cares for their patients.
Dr. Babbar is the best doctor I've ever had. As an adult, I never really had a doctor - until I suddenly was sick and needed to see someone (to get medication and a note for work!). I'm soooo glad I found Dr. Babbar. He is so knowledgeable and puts you at ease. He spent 20 minutes going over my medical history and listening to my symptoms before prescribing me medication. When I went in for a physical, I was there for an hour with Dr. Babbar and the nurse because he is so thorough. He called me two days later to go over my results. The nurses are fantastic too. I tell everyone - get your physical done with Dr. Babbar!BTW - This office is inside the hospital - Dr. Babbar shares this space it with several other doctors. The waiting room is a little congested, but this is to be expected with many doctors working in one space. You can't get an appointment after 4pm until you've been a patient at least once (only major downfall).
