I have been a patient of Dr. Insel for a good number of years (over 20). He has always been inquisitive regarding my health and thorough in the pursuit of finding what is needed to stay on a healthy track. Once evaluated, after his examination and running whatever tests he thinks are pertinent, he sits with you and goes through all the results. He puts a tremendous amount of care and thought into his diagnoses. Then goes over everything in a concise manner, then gives you his recommendations. The staff is very accommodating and equally caring in the entire process. In my opinion, you won’t have a better association.

Dr Insel is the kind of doctor you always wish you had! First of all, it helps when your cardiologist greets you with a big smile, always good for the heart! When I share my concerns with him, Dr Insel sets up whatever tests are indicated, and afterwards sits with me to discuss the results, clearly state what I need to do re lifestyle, exercise etc, and encourage me to go for those healthy changes. He runs risk calculator software to assess my specific risk factors, and give a fact-based projection of whatever in my health profile heightens my risk of stroke or heart attack. He gives it to you straight, empowers you to take responsibility for your own health, knowing he’s always there with his warm and funny encouragement, listening skills and seasoned expertise to consult with. He’s a wonderful human being who happens to be a great cardiologist. And his staff always takes great care of me, too. Thank You, Dr Insel !!!

I have made Dr. Insel my regular doctor – as well as my cardiologist – despite having to travel into the city to see him. He’s healthy himself and knowledgeable in all areas of physical health — not just the heart. He’s wise, patient and invested in your overall health – not just a prescriber of medicine. I would recommend him to anyone.

I have been a patient of Dr. Insel for approximately 30 years. He literally saved my life. When I had chest pains, he paid attention even when the EKG showed no irregularities. I eventually had a bypass. I cannot stress enough the admiration I have for him. He is kind, and always listens to what I have to say. If I call him , he always calls me back the same day. Besides being my cardiologist, he is my Internist and I truly believe my friend. I also like the fact that I never have to wait in his office to see him. If my appointment is 9:00 AM. I am taken at that hour. So many doctors do not think twice about having you wait for long periods of time before actually getting to see them. When I go to the office I am also greeted in a friendly environment. His receptionist Rita is one of the nicest people I have come across. She is never too busy to speak with me and is very courteous when I call for any reason. When I go to his office I feel as if I am visiting friends: not just a doctor’s office.

Very personable, with great breadth of knowledge, and a model of how a humanistic healthcare provider should conduct oneself and what medical students should ascribe to as they embark on their medical careers.

“In all of my years going to a doctor, I’ve never felt so instantly comfortable and listened to. Doctor Insel is kind, patient, thorough and has a bedside manner like no other. I think the best part of my experience with Doctor Insel is that I didn’t feel like another patient; I felt like a friend he cared about. It was such a wonderful experience to go in suspecting you may have heart issues and to be treated with kindness and professionalism.”

I also saw a pulmonary doctor and wish he was half as personable as Dr. Insel. In short, he seemed intelligent and capable, and at the same time not clinically cold like you sometimes get in a doctor. He just has a great friendly way about him.”
