The Dr. was quite nice, staff as well. She had a mask on, I wish she could've just tell me. I figure she has it own for either the flu but filling me in would've been nice. It was very quick and professional. Cannot complain.

My visit went great. Mind you I haven’t been to the doctors in about 3 years but Dr. Alina addressed all my concerns and didn’t scorn me for not going to see her every years I should but advised me thatI should go once a year & not when I have a problem. . Her staff was very friendly & made you feel at ease. The office is very nice and so are the consult rooms.

My husband and I are new patients, we went in for a check-up. When we got there we had to fill out the paperwork, I wasn't even done filling out the paperwork before they were ready for us. When we wentinto the room, the doctor saw us right away. She really took the time to listen to our concerns and answer any questions we had. She even recommended a good Italian restaurant in Brooklyn when she found out my husband was from there. Overall she was very knowledgeable and very nice. I would definitely recommend her.

I have had unpleasant experiences with other doctors in the area, but Dr. Borkowska has been the best doctor I've been to in many years. The wait to see her is not as painfully long as with previous doctors, and Ilike that I usually get an appointment right away. What she says always makes sense and doesn't leave me with nagging questions after I leave. She is a very smart doctor, and I totally trust her.
