I walked in, went straight to an exam room, and the doc was in not 5 minutes after I changed. She spent her time with me & bedside manner was great! I have never had a gyn experience quite like it. Never going anywhere else!!

I waited too long for my appointment - 20 minutes in the waiting room then another 10 in the examining room. For the beginning of the day that was too long to wait. The doctor, however, was congenial, respectful and attentive and had a good bedside manner. I highly recommend her, but be ready to wait.

She was great! I've never been to an OB/GYN where I was in and out in less than one hour! That alone was amazing! She was extremely pleasant, efficient and professional and prescribed a test that I have to schedule. I was extremely apprehensive, but when I met her I felt completely at ease, considering no sane woman could possibly look forward to going to the Gynecologist.She was terrific and her office staff was lovely. I would definitely recommend her and will return next year.

Unfortunately, I did not have a good experience with Dr. Useda. At the time, I had to find another OB-GYN on short notice as my current doc dropped my insurance. I felt that she was not concerned with my symptoms, which were fairly minor at the time. However, when I expressed that I wanted to do further testing, she said, "What do you want me to test?" As I recall, I'm not the one that completed med school. Overall, everything else was fine and regular pap came back normal. Will be transferring to an alternate GYN for the new year.

Unfriendly and brusque. I went for an annual exam. Although I have a GP whom I see regularly she asserted opinions beyond OBGYN issues. Asked me if I'm on a diet.

She was ok but not what I'm looking for in a gyn at this point in my life. She was nice & friendly but seemed distracted, in a hurry. We didn't really talk. General treatment. I'm looking for someone who really sees ME.

I was concerned about the doctor's bedside manner after reading the mixed reviews. If you need a very warm & fuzzy personality to make you comfortable - then she's not the doc for you. That said, I liked her just fine, found her to be no nonsense, but perfectly approachable. I made the appointment last minute while my regular doctor (who I've been seeing for over 20 years) was out of town. Never having seen her before, I was totally comfortable with Dr. Useda. She was thorough, professional, and gave me good advice. I would recommend her.

This was my first visit - Dr. Useda was very friendly in screening me for background information and getting my exam done quickly and efficiently. She asked me about my upcoming wedding to distract me during the exam and it worked. I always get nervous at the doctor's office and she put me at ease. I had an 8 am appointment and I made it to work on East 69th Street by 9 am.

Whenever I have seen Dr. Useda she has been unpleasant and condescending. I am inexperienced in dealing with medical and insurance issues, and she has made it more difficult at each step. Instead asking me to communicate my needs more clearly, she immediately gets defensive and makes me feel stupid for asking about anything. I didn't think doctors were supposed to make you feel worse. I would definitely avoid visiting this doctor.

Dr. Uceda was cold and insensitive in the way she asked questions and talked to me. She scolded me for not hanging my clothes behind the door, which I found extreme. She was imposible to relate to and felt like a disconnected machine in a bad mood at work taking it on her client. I would never go back to her and would never recommend her.

Dr. Useda was friendly and knowledgable. I am fairly young (late 20s) and healthy, so I didn't really need anything more involved than the routine pap smear test, and she was efficient & quick with it. It was a pleasant visit and I would recommend her to other women who need their routine pap smear/gynecology check-up.
