Dr. Jennifer L. Bonheur's Ratings
I am a senior citizen, and I thought after my GI of many years retired I would never be pleased again. Then, through a friend, I met Dr Bonheur and I know the future of my health is in the VERY BEST of hands!! Dr Bonheur is the rare mixture of the Drs of the past, who take time, interest, show compassion, get involved and return your calls, with the knowledge of the latest and most advanced medical practices available, all at her fingertips. Dr Bonheur treats you as a WHOLE PERSON- which is amazing to find in this day and age of medicine and medical specialties. I am scheduling a colonoscopy, without fear, (for the first time in my life though I have had many), because I know I am in the very best of hands. Dr. Bonheur is an EXTRAORDINARY Dr who is calm, understanding and respectful of the fears a patient may have . I am approaching a proceedure that I used to dred , this time, without panic , knowing that she will be there for me every step of the way, and it will take place in a state of the art facility. With all the possible Dr's in NYC, I was so very lucky to find her. Dr Bonheur was the BEST gift my friend ever gave me. Her entire staff considers the patient first and I feel secure and cared for just being a part of her practice. I have been around the block with Dr.s quite a bit in my life , and with Dr. Bonheur handling my medical well-being, I don't feel like she considers me as just another senior citizen , I feel like she sees me as an active , productive woman with a lot yet to do. That, along with her amazing medical skill and knowledge is her gift to her patients. I am confident that Dr Bonheur will help me to stay healthy, well and have a long and healthy life in the years ahead. It doesn't get better than that !!
When my friend raved that Dr. Bonheur was the best doctor she'd ever met I thought it was hyperbole her comments didn't do Dr. Bonheur justice. I echo the other writers here--would that we could clone her. At a time when doctors barely spend five minutes with you, typically in the most impersonal way, Dr. Bonheur is a throw back to a time when doctors really could be viewed as healers. She spent 30 minutes with me for a simple pre-colonoscopy consultation really talking with me. Further, Dr. Bonheur combines her readily evident intellect with warmth, compassion and gentleness that give one full confidence in her abilities. The reality, no one likes to have a colonoscopy but if you need a gastroenterologist she is THE doctor to see. In a word--exceptional.
All the reviews written about Dr. Bonheur on this site state the absolute truth. I only wish that I could clone her so that every doctor in Manhattan (and many that I have seen)both male and female could be like her. She is thorough, very intelligent, extremely compassionate, kind, actually believes you without judging and is just an all around fantastic doctor and wonderful person. I have a couple things going on health wise, and she has treated me extremely well from a GI point of view as well as listened about my other issues. She is also not an alarmist, talks to you in a soothing manner and puts you at ease which is the kind of doctor I require for my personality. Dr. Bonheur is an absolute gem.
Dr. Bonheur is without a doubt one of the best doctors I've ever been privileged to see: brilliant, kind, compassionate, patient, and meticulous. Her book knowledge, which is comprehensive and detailed, is matched by her procedural skills. She should get a Noble Prize in colonoscopies. I know many people are suspect of online reviews, thinking the writer may be a friend or relative of the subject, but I can assure I was professionally recommended to Dr. Bonheur, met her once at her office and then had my procedure. I will be using her for any other gastroenterological concerns that may arise. And the Endoscopy Center is new, spotless, with a competent and friendly staff. My colonoscopy turned out to be a pleasure.
It is next to impossible to find a Dr.that cares, listens and takes time to get to know you as a person. Dr. Bonheur does all that as well as being an amazing diagnostician that treats the "whole" person. Her office is well run and there is practically no waiting time at all. What a pleasure all around!! You can feel her respect for her patients and her concern for their health, and she is always responsive to ideas for treatment and on top of all new information. I can count on Dr. Bonheur to ALWAYS return my calls and schedule me more quickly when I don't feel well. She is an amazing doctor and a wonderful person. Finding her for treatment in NYC was certainly my lucky day.
The best doctor, of any kind, I have ever been to. Patient, knowledgeable, experienced & thorough. My initial appointment lasted over an hour. Was not rushed at all. Will only do tests if there is a medical need. Explains what she thinks your medical condition is and explains her plan of treatment. Office is effciently run. Waited less than five minutes to be seen. Was taken in directly to see her. None of this being brought to the back where you wait. Would highly recommend.
A doctor who actually treats you as an individual instead of a number. She takes the time to go over your case with you. If you have a concern or question for her and if you leave a message for her she will return your calls. She respects the fact that when it it is your time block it she will only devote her attention to you the patient.
Dr. Bonheur is not only the best doctor I've ever seen in New York City, but the best doctor I've seen anywhere. She is so thorough, patient, thoughtful and kind-- I always leave her office with a renewed sense of hope. She truly listens and clearly explains treatment options and decisions. Her office staff is also very professional and courteous. I cou'dn't recommend her more strongly!
Dr. Bonheur has been my GI for quite a few years now... previous to her I had gone to her partner Dr. Kim. Both are exceptional. I do prefer Dr. Bonheur personally because of her open-minded approach. She is always willing to consider alternative medicines and geniunely wanted me to feel better. My whole family goes to her now and whenever anyone expresses a need for a GI I refer them to her immediately and they have always been beyond impressed. In addition, she has made superb recommendations to other dr's.. my general pcp, obgyn, etc. I trust her and I trust her taste. She is A+ top notch and if you need a great GI she is really the best one you could find.
