Manhattan Physician is now accepting new patients in Upper East Side!

As a top New York Primary Care Doctor, Dr. Marina Gafanovich, MD is offering Internal Medicine services in her private office. Our facility has expanded to provide full and robust urgent and chronic care diagnosis and treatments. We have an in-house lab and diagnostic facility that enables us to provide same day blood tests and electrocardiogram diagnostics, so that our patients do not have to leave the facility to complete a physical examination or medical clearance.

Our practice philosophy is one of “patient first”. You will never wait more than ten minutes, you will always be heard, and your beliefs and feelings will always be the most important consideration to any treatment plan. Dr. Gafanovich has always believed that attitude is everything when it comes to a patient’s ability to self-heal, and therefore will never attempt to force or coerce a patient into a treatment plan. She feels that it is her job to diagnose not only the problem, but the source of the disease or disorder. Rather than treat the symptoms of the disease, it is her integrated-humanist philosophy to treat the patient, first, and then together attack the source of the issue.

  • Testimonials

    Dr. Gafanovich is a superb doctor. When I fell seriously and somewhat mysteriously ill, she saved my life: she immediately diagnosed the illness, successfully fought with my initially recalcitrant insurance company to get a test to confirm the diagnosis, and coordinated the post-op care. In every less urgent medical task...
