Wait is longer than 2 hours on days you are seeing Dr. Olanescu. However, if you are seeing someone that just goes over your pap smear results, it could be a 30-60 minutes wait. Waiting area is quite big for adoctor's office, but suitable for this practice since at least 10 patients are waiting overtime their appointed time. Once, the doctor had left this specific office to "operate on an urgent case," but people waiting were not notified until hours later. Appointment is very rushed. I have waited 2-3 hours to be given 4 minutes of her time- not enough time to express all the concerns I have, questions I need answers to.

I never received my prescription. I was asked back to the room and sent back to the waiting room multiple times. There was no gown for when I changed and the doctor never left the room while I undressed.

Worst appointment. I scheduled my appointment for 145. I got there early for my appointment only for the receptionist to tell it was going to be a 1-2 hour wait because I'm not on schedual. But they did confirm my appointment.So I asked receptionist for help and she a horrible attitude . You shouldn't have someone that doesn't have patients to work in medical office. Especially when your in the wrong

So many ppl are waiting for the line and just one assistance in the front. And she told me to wait for her for one or two hours. Then why should I make an appointment if I have to wait forthat long time..? And her etitude was like its totally up to you to wait for her or not. Even looked like she is kinda tired of talking to ppl. So disappointed even before I meet the doc. Plus, they didnt even know that I made an appointment there at all. So bad.

When I arrived they said that I wasn't on the list of patience for that day. They asked me how I booked my apt and I told them thru Zocdoc and showed them the confirmation for the apt. I had made.They advised that sometimes the information from Zocdoc doesn't feed over into their system so they would have to add me to their list of patience to see that afternoon. I ended up waiting almost an hour because of this. The Dr. was very kind and knowledgeable and I liked her very much, but I will not be returning. I was told that they would be running my ins to make sure that I was covered under the treatment they wanted to give me and I never heard from them again. I called 3 times for an update on both my lab results and whether or not ins was going to cover the treatment and each time they said a nurse would call me back. Now, it's almost 3 months later and I have yet to receive a call back. Very disappointing. Especially since I am now covered under different ins. and really liked the Dr.

The worst office I have ever been. I can explain why: 1. The receptionist asked me for a reason of my visit right in the waiting room. The answer that I came for a annual check wasn't satisfactory. She wanted toknow what problems I have. This is huge HIPAA violation! 2. They discussed another patient's case in a hallway so I heard every detail - no comments on that! 3. They did ultrasound only on one side. -What is supposed to mean?! "One ovary is fine, so we don't care about another one". 4. I can't get resoults of my tests by mail or e-mail even if I did a request; an appointment only and in two weeks ?? 5. I came there at 1:30pm and left at 4:20pm! 6. Lady which did ultrasound didn't change gloves from previous patient. - Thanks god! She didn't touched me 7. they don't care about the quality of a service and don't perform a normal inspection, their goal is just collecting money from insurance companies. What is going on?! They are not afraid to be sued at all! I am going to make an appointment in another office next week. I don't trust those guys.

The place is nice enough, but very busy and disorganized. Why I'm giving such a bad review is the billing process. I received the bill from a 3rd party who cannot process the payment, the statement says you have to makepayment in person at the surgery, which is wrong. Eventually try calling and they take the payment but it never gets pushed back to the billing company. Despite paying I still receive the bill, the billing company eventually returns my call and asks me to call the doctor to get proof. I then have to call the doctor and they can't help, just take my number. Eventually sort the problem by having. to sent my statement to prove I paid. Wasted annhour of my time at work, because of course all this needs to be done in office hours. Won't be returning.

Absolutely horrible and unprofessional. I felt so unwelcomed and doctor doesn't give a flying hoot. Saw her for less than 3 minutes. She walked out of the room and gave me no direction as to what to do next. Front deskstaff has no idea what they're doing. I specifically asked for no papers to be sent home as was told no info would be sent to my house, next thing I know there's a letter in the mail with my test results. No system in place.

You may have to wait a while, but that's because Dr. Olanescu genuinely cares and spends time with her patients. So do her nurses and full staff. I've seen some of her staff hold crying patients and rock them and talkto them until they felt better. She understands and loves women. I'm lucky to have found her.

Had to switch doctors because the wait is HORRIBLE! Even if you show up early for your appointment, it doesn't matter. The front desk ladies are nice but are pretty slow with their paper work so the process also moves very slow because of them.

Terrible experience..I was the first appointment, however I waited an hour an a half to see the doctor.She allowed 5 mins of her time to do a test and never saw her afterwards.I left with a prescription for 2 antibiotics thatI wasn't sure what they were for.Another thing was that a Pap Smear test result would arrive in 3 weeks, never heard such a long time.Anyways,I am more concerned to why the antibiotics were prescribed but I guess I have to wait 3 weeks to find out and not only that but I was told I would see the office manager not even the doctor, whom I have told her I was planning to have a baby and that was the primary reason of my visit.I'm totally confused with this lack of communication,will go back for results and probably choose a different doctor.I'm sorry,first impression was terrible????

Service average. The place is very crowded and the waiting time is more than 4 hours for a simple checkup. The staff is very stress out because they are very busy or they do not like to work there. Therefore, Isuggest you to look for another doctor. Bad, bad …feeling about that place…..

Everyone was very pleasant and welcoming HOWEVER I had a 10:35 am appointment and wasn't 'finished' with my visit until 2pm! I didn't even get into an exam room until noon. Everything felt very rushed. There was very little explaining ofanything. I made the appointment to start taking birth control and I wasnt really walked through my options. I was asked whether I wanted the patch or the pill and I said I'd been thinking about the pill and that was the end of the discussion. I was also made to do things (urine sample, ultrasound) that don't feel like they are common, routine procedure. I am nervous that these won't be covered by my limited insurance and I will end up paying for exams I did not need!

I never could've imagined waiting so long anywhere. 2 and half hours before being spoken to by anyone. I had to push another appt back when I had already set them two hours apart. She barely said two words to meand I never got to ask her any of the questions I had. She never even said bye. I would never go back, and hope everyone reads my comment so you don't have to go through what I did.

Made a 10 am appointment. Doctor didn't arrive until after 11:30. The assistants and nurses were all nice enough but gave me the impression that this kind of thing happens regularly. I did not see the doctor until 1:15 pm. Iwould have left if I didn't need a new bc Rx. I also had a scan done (at the request of another doctor), and I was never contacted with the results. bedside manner wasn't terrible, but I couldn't get a question in, and saw her for no more than 2 minutes (and I'm unfortunately not exaggerating).

Doctor had left the office without notifying anyone. They had me switch rooms three different times. During mid sonogram, the medical assistant's phone rang, and she left me on the table covered in gel to have a conversation. It was a horrible experience.

I will not be going again. The wait was super long, over 3 hours when i had an appt, she was completely over booked!! After waiting for 3 hours, i saw her for maybe 1 minute, literally. Also, no point infilling out Zocdoc paperwork, because i had to fill out everything all over at the office. WILL NEVER GO BACK!

I was there for approximately 4 hours. I saw the doctor for 5 minutes. I briefly mentioned wanting to do a procedure. She told me that shows I am well informed, then finished up the pap smear, walked out and hadan attendant come in and give me a paper to give to the receptionist to schedule the procedure appointment. Um? Ok? I guess this is happening? No way... Never again for this place. Operates worse than a clinic.

Dr. Olanescu and her staff are all amazing. Every one is so friendly and welcoming. They really care about their patients. The only complaint I would have is the wait time. She has so many patients, but this mist be agood sign. Everyone wants to see her because she is the best. I don't mind the long waits with an office as great as them.

I will start off with a positive - the nurses are sweet, it was Halloween and they gave candy to the entire wait room. I say entire wait room because it was packed with people since 10 AM and the Dr.was not even there yet. I waited two hours, even though I had a 10 AM appt. The receptionist were not familiar with the actual rights of the in network insurance and were giving me misinformation. When I informed them I did know my rights they backed off. I got what I needed to get done (annual checkup) but it wasn't a pleasant experience.

Unlike many of the reviews here, I did not wait as long as I though I would, maybe 30-35 minutes since I arrived. My time with her was very short though. Less than 3 minutes. I saw her aides more thanI saw her. After she told me her diagnosis, I didn't even have time to process my thoughts and think of questions that would help me understand what was going on. I never saw her again after she left my room. I just got my prescriptions from her aide and then it was done, just like that. Although she was very friendly, she didn't give me a chance to ask more questions to understand my condition.

I waited for 3 hours, only to be seen by the doctor for maybe 2 minutes. She is very nice but didn't answer or discuss anything with me that I previously told the nurse I wanted to discuss. I won't nevngo back there, the wait is horrible way overbooked for one doctor.
