Hands-Down the Best Doctors in NYC
Our picks for the best doctors in NYC …speaking from experience.
Dr. Raphael Kellman
Your new GP / Primary Care doctor who can do everything
Dr. Kellman is a wonderfully curious and thorough doctor. When other doctors tell you the most obvious, and often incorrect, diagnosis, he digs deeper to find out the real cause, and to fix the underlying issues. He’s incredibly patient and explains everything in scientific detail, so you actually understand what’s going on with your body.
He specializes in setting up individualized treatment plans that include oral and intravenous nutritional supplementation and detoxification support, diet modification, exercise plans, stress management; all based on the results of specialized functional testing.
He’s also the author of The Microbiome Diet, a bestselling book about how gut bacteria and nutritional absorption affects our health. Here’s a video of him talking about it, and another (longer) video where he’s interviewed about gut health. And if you just want a quick introduction, here’s Dr. Kellman talking about his practice:
My first appointment with him took about 90 minutes, he created a complete health profile on me, and he did a slew of tests on me (I mean, enough for 15 vials of blood to be taken). He tested me for environmental toxins, genetic detoxification issues, heavy metals (from makeup and seafood), etc. The Kellman Center is in midtown Manhattan, but lots of his patients come from out of town to see him or get IV’s at his clinic.
