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.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Zeale

from Eileen March 29, 2017 for Peter J. Zeale, MD

Dr. Zeale, I so much appreciate your perfect combination of patience, support, and urgency in my struggle with diabetes. Thank you so very much.

from Mary March 24, 2017 for Peter J. Zeale, MD

I met Dr. Zeale in 2012 and have found Doctor Zeale and his staff very approachable, professional and accessible.

I receive a very thorough exam and feel I can discuss anything concerning me
with the doctor. He actually saved my life because he was the first doctor
to give me the A1C blood test and in so doing found that I was pre-diabetic. We work together in monitoring… See more

from Jair March 22, 2017 for Peter J. Zeale, MD

It actually goes against my principles to pay for MDVIP, but it is a tribute to Dr. Zeale that we do so just to keep him as our GP. I've been with Dr. Zeale for 27 years (through multiple different health insurances) and he has always been a meticulous doctor who takes his time to listen to his patients and examine them.

from Aurora March 21, 2017 for Peter J. Zeale, MD

Dr. Zeale is the most caring and thorough doctor. My husband (Henry Ferrero) and I thank our almighty stars for being his patients for decades. My only regret is that he may retire before I die. Can't imagine any replacement measuring up to Dr. Zeale and willing to put in longs day 24/7 like he does.

from muriel in NY February 8, 2015 for Peter J. Zeale, MD

I have great confidence in Dr. Zeale, and consider myself extremely lucky that he is my primary doctor. He is an excellent diagnostician, recommends top-notch specialists when needed, coordinates reports from all my other doctors and confers with them regarding my health. His notes are especially excellent as is his research and knowledge of all new trends etc. Dr. Zeale's office is… See more

from Joanne in NY February 26, 2014 for Peter J. Zeale, MD

Doctor Zeale alerted me to my need for a pacemaker and helped me to make the connections for the Holter device and then an appointment with the surgeon who did the procedure. I feel so much better now and I wonder if I would even be alive had I not had a doctor who was so caring and persistent. He also has a wonderful manner and knows and remembers everything about me. Whenever I count my… See more
