Dr. Marina Gafanovich warmly welcomes you to her conveniently located Upper East Side practice.
This medical practice opened its doors in 1961. It was founded on the premise that a doctor can and should treat the patient rather than the disease. This humanistic approach was originally championed by Dr. Eric Cassell, who established this practice and was well known in New York City for 40 years of providing superb medical care. His successor, continued the same standard of medical care for another 20 years. This personal and dedicated practice was then entrusted to Dr. Marina Gafanovich, who was chosen for her intelligence, first-rate Internal Medicine skills, and compassion toward her patients.
From your first step into the office, you’ll experience a warm and friendly ambiance which transforms a visit to the doctor into a less stressful experience. Our devoted, multi-lingual staff is highly trained to attend to your individual needs and minimize your waiting time. We are equipped with the most sophisticated diagnostic medical equipment, aimed to efficiently and thoroughly define and identify our patients’ problem areas.
Our office provides on-site phlebotomy, chest X-rays, ECGs, and other services (please click here for a list of all of the tests we perform at the office). This enables us to effectively screen and prevent diseases. In addition, we provide efficient pre-operative clearance for our patients. We address issues ranging from comprehensive physical exams to common medical problems such as hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes, coronary artery disease, peripheral vascular disease, weight loss, smoking cessation, stress management, gout, arthritis, and asthma/COPD. We also offer strategies for primary disease prevention such as screening for colorectal, breast, and prostate cancer.
We know that you are entrusting us with the most precious work – keeping you and you families healthy! Our office is dedicated to providing you with the best, most professional, and compassionate care in New York City.
