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, I have more 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 MDVIP-affiliated practice also offers services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, that go far beyond those found in concierge medicine practices.

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 better understand and solve their medical problems through early interventions and wellness counseling.

Since Dr. Zeale became my primary care doctor in the fall of 2018, I have been extremely impressed by his professionalism, knowledge, follow-up and care. I don't have one incident to relate or describe since there have been a series of interactions that have demonstrated his dedication and concern for me as a patient. In all interactions, in person, by phone or email, he is very professional… See more

I have been with Dr. Zeale for 35 years. He is someone who cares, spends time with you, listens to your concerns and offers great advice. He never rushes you and is deeply concerned about your well being. I wish the world would have more doctors like him. 

from Ramesh in NY March 5, 2024 for Peter J. Zeale, MD

On all counts, Dr Zeale personifies as an exemplary physician . He is a great listener, empathetic, thorough beyond normal in assessing your overall health. I recently received a scan report that was concerning, and Dr Zeale was able to see me to discuss the report and follow up immediately after arriving from an overseas trip . It was reassuring.

from Mary in NY March 3, 2024 for Peter J. Zeale, MD

I have been Dr. Zeale's patient since 2012. I visit his office every 6 months. It is a great comfort to know that he is available to me 24/7. He takes time to answer my questions and concerns. Dr. Zeale was the first doctor who ordered an A1C Blood test and it showed that I was pre-diabetic. Since 2012, Dr. Zeale and I work together on my diet and overall wellness to get the numbers down. And… See more

Congratulations on being selected as a top doctor by Castle Connelly. YOU DESERVE IT.

It was May 2015, and I was recovering from surgery at NYU Langone. It was a welcome sight to see Dr. Zeale stop by my bedside and ask how I was doing. It was totally unexpected on my part and his warmth and concern for my well being has stayed with me for the past nine years. His continued attention, his empathy, his willingness to listen, and his ready availability, makes him unique in the… See more
