How likely are you to recommend Dr. Underberg?

(Select your rating)
Dr. Underberg is confident, knowledgeable and caring, and always upbeat. And more importantly than anything, he listens attentively and patiently, never rushing or distracted. More to the point: he saved my life by referring me immediately to the emergency room when I had the main artery to my heart almost completely blocked, after another physician had suggested that it could be treated with lipid medication at home. His chosen specialty in lipidology is just one area in which he is recognized as an expert; his overall knowledge of all matters in internal medicine is astounding, and it seems that after every conversation with him he imparts some new medical insight that had never been previously known to me. In the office for an appointment, he will take his time and perform a thorough examination and consultation. Dr. Underberg is a rarity. It is for that reason that he is my Castle Connolly personal concierge doctor. Yes, I would recommend him to my family and friends.
