Dr. Zeale couldn't be more of an intelligent, reliable, and compassionate physician. I can always count on him to tend to my needs whenever something may arise, which is extremely comforting. As a young girl living in NYC, I transferred to becoming a patient of Dr. Zeale's after I grew out of pediatric care. I was so impressed with how comprehensive his exams are, the amount of… See more
My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
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.

My wife and I have been very fortunate to have found Dr Zeale to be our family physician in NYC after we relocated from Texas. We are grateful to him for his very thorough treatment and wellness management through the last three years. He is a great listener, and has become like a good friend. His availability 24/7 is a great peace of mind

Your patience and comprehensive explanations, not to mention your sense of humor, are so so appreciated. When you discovered I didn’t have Prostate cancer you called me immediately - on a Sunday. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I feel blessed to be your patient.
Hi, Dr. Zeale. As you know, I joined MDVIP only because I did not want to lose you as my doctor. Now that I can't get to New York to see you, I sometimes question my membership. But I really like the way you communicate and make sensible choices and, with this structure, can take more time with me than the other doctors I occasionally see in Woodstock and Anna Maria, Florida. The… See more
