Peter J. Zeale, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I have been practicing general internal medicine and taking care of patients throughout the New York City metro area since 1983. I believe the essence of providing quality care is building close and personal relationships with patients and their families. This happens when there is trust, open communication and a mutual commitment to a healthy lifestyle.

In my personalized healthcare practice, similar to a concierge practice, I have time to work closely with all of my patients and tailor their care to their unique needs and goals. For the past 25 years, I have been recognized as one of Castle Connolly’s “Top Doctors” in New York.

My office is conveniently located on the lower west side of Manhattan, and I am affiliated with New York University Medical Center. I care for patients in the immediate area, as well as surrounding neighborhoods, including Chelsea, Gramercy, Midtown, Tribeca, Flatiron, Murray Hill, Union Square, East Village, West Village and the tristate region.

I take pride in having an exceptional and attentive office staff who know my patients on a personal level. As a private doctor, my patients have peace of mind knowing I am available for same-day or next-day appointments, as well as by cell phone for urgent needs. In addition to primary care, I also focus on prevention and treatment of hypertension, diabetes and high cholesterol. I aim to partner with my patients to understand and solve their medical problems through early interventions and wellness counseling.
