Great doctor. Rather than popping in quickly on multiple patients prepped by assistants, she sees one patient at a time and listens. Like doctors did 40 years ago ... highly recommended!

Fantastic doctor! I was very nervous as I have not seen a doctor is quite some time, but Dr. Shustarovich made me feel relaxed and comfortable. At the end of the appointment that appointment anxiety went completely away and I was able to have piece of mind once again.

Dr. Shustarovich is one of the first doctors I've met in years that seems to still see patients as a whole individual and plan care accordingly. She's friendly, thorough and attentive. I was very pleased with my experience and felt Ireceived a standard of care that's hard to come by these days!

Even though I checked in with my info and insurance pre-appt thru ZocDoc, it took the secretary sometime to figure out my copay, so I waited for 45 to be seen by the doctor. I didn't appreciate the fact that theyonly take cash for copayments. That is a great disappointment because it makes it difficult to track my payments. It was worth the wait. The doctor is was very pleasant, attentive, and thorough.

Upon arriving, I was told that I don't have an appointment through zocdoc (even though I did, and even checked in with my info and insurance pre-appt). Then, the secretary took over 45 minutes to figure out my copay, so Iwaited over an hour to be seen by doctor. The doctor was very pleasant, attentive, and thorough. The office was small and a bit outdated, but overall clean.

Absolutely terrible! The doctor was 45 minutes late for my appointment in which she didn't even acknowledge nor apologize for. Additionally, she has a massive window in her office, without any blinds or curtains, that faced several other officebuildings. This wasn't an issue until I was asked to undress and change into a dressing gown with nowhere to hide! Afterward, she stayed in the room while I redressed. This was an incredibly uncomfortable and infuriating experience.

I only waited a few minutes even though I got there right at my appointment time and was a new patient. The Manhattan office is barebones but she really took the time to listen to me and ask me about myhistory and concerns. I was there for a physical and she authorized some blood tests based on my family history that other doctor's said I shouldn't worry about, even when I specifically asked for them when I haven't been feeling great. I'm not a hypochondriac by any means but these are things I'd like to monitor and the doctor was on the same page.

I did not feel the doctor tried to get to know me or my physical or psychological situation. She dismissed necessity to even measure my blood pressure. After questions on seeking psychological advice she recommended Valerian root drops. Onewould expect an advice on the list of doctors or practices or other resources. I came out after the appointment even more frustrated than before seeing the doctor. She was recommended by a friend, so hopefully this was one off the pattern. But I would never recommend this doctor to anybody and will never return.
