Verified Patient Reviews
Wait time was long, and appointment was boilerplate -- nothing was wrong, but definitely less inquisitive than my favorite doctors. May try someone else next time but would go back in an emergency.
Dr. Gahr has a wonderful and open personal demeanor. She put me at ease right away and was happy to answer all my questions and anticipated many of my concerns. She knows her stuff and has a great deal of practical advice. I always leave her office with a high degree of reassurance and comfort. Her staff and colleagues are wonderful too.
She was very informative and nice. She told me she would give me prenatal pills to try out since we are trying to get pregnant in the near future but she must have forgotten. She also let me know ahead of time she does not deliver babies, which was good to know.
Dr. Gahr took the time to hear me, answer my questions and reassure me about fertility concerns. I felt a huge sense of relief after visiting this office.
She is fabulous. Took her time with me, listened to my concerns and answered all my questions. Good natured and a great doctor. Go with her!
She's got a great bedside manner. Easy to talk to and very efficient.
Dr. Gahr was probably the best doctor I have ever seen in my entire life! She was extremely professional, patient, asked a lot of questions, and truly was present during the entire appointment. Although it is not in her job description, you can tell she truly cares about the wellbeing of her patients. Highly highly recommended!
Knowledgeable and patient GYN, takes the time to review your history and concerns with you, and very thorough in examination.
Fantastic! Dr. Gahr was personable, understanding, and even funny! I would highly recommend her.
The overall visit was thorough, and didn't feel rushed. That said, I waited for over an hour in the reception area before being seen without any updates. I wish doctors/staff were a bit more apologetic when this happens; it's unfortunately all too common.
Dr. Gahr is very nice, but I was waiting for more than 45 minutes before I even went into a room which was frustrating
I loved Dr. Gahr. She was very kind and thorough. The wait was approximately 30 minutes but this is standard at almost any office due to insurance verification.
She is a great doctor. I have a lot of confidence in her.
I have been to gynos before where I have had to wait hours to be seen! I was so happy to arrive and find out that Dr. Gahr does not overbook herself, so I was able to be seen shortly.
Dr. Gahr is the best - so warm and friendly, really makes you feel comfortable and takes your care to heart. I am really glad I found Dr. Gahr and highly recommend
My second time with this doctor. She is really patient and helpful. Did a great job answering my questions and spent time thinking through what my options were.
Absolutely love Dr. Gahr!
Dr. Gahr was great. However, I didn't particularly get a good vibe from the receptionist and admin staff who were unfriendly and mean. For example, upon hanging up with a client, one receptionist complained about the client within earshot while there were other clients in the waiting room. It's just not a pleasant experience knowing that they could also bad mouth me when I'm not there.
Great first visit. Highly recommend Dr. Gahr
I was very comfortable and the visit was very professional.
Though there was a small wait, Dr.Gahr was everything I needed in a doctor. Couldn't recommend more highly.
Nice doctor and informative :)
Dr. Gahr was amazing. She REALLY listened and gave very helpful feedback.
I love Dr. Gahr. She is very attentive and personable and was very happy to answer all my questions!
I just wish i didnt have to wait 45 minutes to be seen when i have an appointment.
Dr. Gahr is extremely professional with an excellent bed side manner. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a GYN.
She was thorough, great bedside manner, and the staff was very nice.
Dr. Gahr is very thorough and knows her patients well. She tasks the right questions and is priactive. I trust her judgement. I have been her patient for almost 18 years.
Dr. Gahr was wonderful. She answered all my questions and made me feel really comfortable through the whole appointment.
Dr. Gahr is personable and treats her patients like they're her only priority throughout the appointment, which is unfortunately rare in the context of NYC doctors. She actively listens to her patients and takes the time to provide complete answers to settle any concerns and/or ensure the patient is educated enough to make informed treatment decisions. The staff are pleasant and efficient, and I was not waiting long at all before or during my appointment.
Very professional, put me at ease, asked follow up questions, exam seemed thorough- not as much as I like but well enough to give my overall experience **** 4 stars.
Dr. Gahr had good bedside manner, though I did have to wait 20 minutes past my midday appointment time to be seen. She talked through my needs and shared her opinions honestly, ultimately giving me a lot to think about before coming to a decision. I appreciated the thoroughness.
Love her, she answer your questions and any concerns you may have..,
Though I had to wait a bit, I really liked Dr. Gahr. This was my first visit. She was very professional and also very easy to talk to, and I didn't feel rushed at all despite that fact that she seemed to be running a little behind.
Liked her a lot. Very nice to talk to. Seems very knowledgable.
Dr. Gahr was extremely warm and welcoming, going to the Gynecologist is never fun but she made me feel extremely comfortable and talked to me about all of my concerns and needs. The wait was a bit long to get in but her bedside manner is well worth it, I would recommend her to my sisters and friends.
Dr. Gahr is a personable, friendly and knowledgeable physician. She is one of my favorite doctors.
The office is quiet/nice/standard, located in a convenient office building in Midtown. Receptionist was quick/efficient. I was taken back to an exam room almost immediately. Then I waited alone in the exam room for roughly 40 minutes. Despite the wait, I really liked my experience with Dr. Gahr; as pleasant as an OBGYN appointment could be, considering. She has a very nice, thoughtful demeanor, and made me feel respected and comfortable (in what is an uncomfortable appointment type in general). She thoroughly addressed all of my concerns and offered solutions/recommendations that felt promising. She also made me feel welcome to call her office regarding any further follow up issues. Although waiting at the doctors is a pain, I feel like it is mainly a necessary evil especially in order to see a great doctor. I will plan to see Dr. Gahr in the future.
Dr. Gahr was great! All of the good reviews were accurate! I decided to see someone new because my doctor retired and the new person I was seeing was very cold and judgmental. As a twenty-four year old woman, I need a gynecologist I can be open and honest with. Dr. Gahr was very understanding, took time to explain everything, and answered all of my questions. We had pleasant conversation the entire appointment and I hadn't even realized the proceudre was finished! I would definitely recommend Dr. Gahr!
Love Dr. Gahr - she has been my GYN for more than a decade and always provides the best of care. Her candor and good spirited nature always make the visit pleasant even when I am not feeling my best.
Love her! she makes me feel so comfortable and very quick.
Dr Gahr is wonderful. Her bedside manner is fantastic.
Dr. Gahr is caring and straight-forward and knowledgeable. Her front-office staff and nurses are also helpful and friendly. The wait time is a little long, more than 30m, but the office is comfortable enough, and for me it's worth the wait knowing I'll be treating with respect and will receive good care.
Very professional. Definitely recommend to my friends and family.
The office location was conveniently close to my work and I was able to schedule an appointment on Friday for Tuesday. The wait time in the middle of the afternoon was short. Dr. Gahr is time efficient but also available for many questions I had. However, she could have spent more time and energy explaining options to me in a clearer way regarding an urgent health concern I am having. Dr. Gahr is great for check ups, but perhaps not the best for giving personal advice.
Dr. Gahr is approachable, warm and an absolutely fantastic physician. I am lucky to have found her!
Dr. Gahr was very nice, personable, and relatable. She explained what she was doing, and why, and made me feel at-ease. I would recommend her to other women looking for a doctor for their routine OB/GYN needs.
My appointment with Dr. Gahr was great! She was very thorough in explaining what she was going to do next. I like that she seemed very calm too. Also, I felt comfortable enough to be honest and ask any questions and concerns I had. It's a clean and very nice office also, and the front office staff well they could a bit more engaging, but they were polite which was all I cared about. And most of all, I wasn't kept waiting, however, it was a while before Dr. Gahr returned to the exam room after I had changed.
I had a great first appointment with Dr. Gahr. She was patient, and provided lots of information that I needed. I didn't feel like the appointment was rushed as I have with past doctors. My appointment did start about 20 minutes late, which would be my only complaint. I will definitely be going back and would recommend her!
Dr. Gahr was very professional and patient. She took the time to answer my questions and explained everything thoroughly. She's also gentle which I very much appreciated.
She has been my gyn for many years, I have followed her though 2 different practices, she is outstanding!
Dr. Gahr was wonderful. None of my friends/colleagues were able to recommend a good gynecologist in the city, so I went with Dr. Gahr based solely on all the positive ZocDoc reviews. I was happy to discover that they were all correct. The office was a pleasant environment and Dr. Gahr was so thorough in answering all my questions (of which there were many). I would definitely recommend her and plan to see her for all my OBGYN needs.
Deborah was nice and efficient. However, I was annoyed waiting in the waiting room and then being moved to the exam room to wait for an additional 30+ minutes. I was seeing the Dr. before work and would have liked to be able to make it to work sooner. If I had known how long I was going to have to wait, I would have made an appointment for an hour earlier! It was a morning appointment and I did not see any other patients come into the office while I was in the waiting room so I do not understand the reasoning for waiting so long. Deborah did briefly apologize for the wait, but it was a little too late.
Dr. Gahr has been my girldoc for the last 13 years and I would not change OB/GYNs for anything! She's really thoughtful and has a warm bedside manner that makes asking questions and discussing options easy. Amazing doc!
After a horrific visit with another OB-GYN, I was relieved to find a caring doctor like Dr. Gahr. She's warm, and very down to earth. Yes, you may have to wait to see her but it's case & point that she takes her time to thoroughly answer any questions/concerns. I don't think you could ask for more of a Gynecologist.
Dr. Gahr took the time to address the fears I had expressed to her, and performed a thorough examination. I couldn't possibly ask for more!
Dr. Gahr is wonderful. Easy to talk to, attentive, overall great experience.
I liked her, very down to earth and was open to questions. However I waited almost an hour for a routine check-up. If I was an hour late to my appointment, not sure if they would have seen me? Double standard.
She's awesome & so was the staff, it was my first visit and I will definitely go back!!!!
Appointments do not feel rushed, and she shows more than the typical level of concern for patients.
Dr. Gahr was very professional. I found her warm and easy to talk to as well as very knowledgeable. Her staff was also very friendly and helpful. I will definitely go back to see her again.
Dr. Gahr is very nice, professional and understanding. I would highly recommend her.
Dr. Gahr made me totally comfortable! She answered all of my questions and concerns thoroughly, and even though I had some questions I considered silly, she was never condescending. Not to mention that the exam was comfortable (at least, as comfortable as it could be) and fairly quick, though still incredibly thorough. I'd definitely recommend her!
Very comfortable. Didn't rush me, which was really refreshing for a doctor's visit.
Always makes me feel comfortable. She is very personable and gentle. Love her!
Excellent doctor, asked relevant questions, great bedside manners, very polite and informative. I highly recommend Dr. Gahr to anyone!
Very professional, friendly and amicable and patient!!
It was great. She was very attentive, informative, and just great!!
The doctor is very professional and good but her reception needs improvement maybe its because they are three people and clients do not know which one is for Dr Deborah that is were you spend too much time .Let them advise clients the waiting time so that you do not rush for an appointment where you will stay for more than an hour
Amazing Gyn, personable,diligent and kind.
Finally a great gyno in NYC with a courteous and professional staff, clean and modern office and a doctor that is easy to talk to!
She was very informative and patient with my questions.
I love Dr. Gahr. She takes the time to talk with you and answers your questions. I never feel rushed. She's warm, caring and a great doctor.
Dr Gahr, is by the far the most engaged, thorough and competent MD I have had the pleasure of seeing, she remembers you as an individual, addresses your concerns, actively listens and explains everything, I have recommended her to many other friends, family and colleagues.
I personally visited dr Gahr for an ongoing issue I was experiencing (BV). She kept throwing different medications my way and wasn't able to diagnose the cause. After countless rounds of prescriptions to "quiet" the issue she suggested I see someone else. Disappointed the doctor couldn't be more helpful and reach to the bottom of the issue. Went on a high dosage of birth control in an attempt to figure out the issue - started losing hair due to it. Overall for a regular check up I recommend her otherwise steer clear!!
Dr. Gahr wa great! As was the rest of the staff. I was called in quickly, and the doctor took the time to answer all questions. Very glad I found her.
1. She told me that she did not do deliveries anymore on my third visit to her clinic. She could have told me this beforehand. 2. There is no way to get your patient records electronically. It is sent either via fax, postal mail or one has to collect them personally. The doctor does not have an email address nor does the office. 3. When eventually the patient records were sent via fax, the doctor's notes were not included, which was not very helpful. 4. I had to ask questions and only then I got some very short answers. I would much rather prefer detailed explanations and solutions to the problems I have. Bedside manners were ok. I don't think I will be seeing her again.
Dr. Gahr spent so much time answering my questions (and I had a lot of them), and really provide objective responses. She never once had the "I'm the doctor and I know best attitude." I would highly recommend her to my friends.
I was dellightful and friendly with high knowledge.
She was exactly what I was looking for in a new OB-GYN. She made me feel completely comfortable and was super helpful answering any questions I had.
The Dr. was very kind. I was in a lot of pain due to an ovarian cyst and she was very gentle and understanding. She took her time and gave me a lot of information
Dr. Gahr is one of the best. I have been seeing her for years. Her new office is nice too. She really takes the time and effort to make you feel comfortable and answer all of your questions.
I love Dr.Gahr. I have been going to her for years and she is a very understanding and very pragmatic doctor. If you have an emergency she is also available! The only downside is there is always a wait time, but it is worth it.
Dr. Gahr was very friendly and very intelligent. She addressed all of my concerns and gave thoughtful advice. The wait time was a bit long and at one point there were several people in my room trying to fix a computer error while I was in my gown. She did apologize for it and it did not take away from the visit. Highly recommended.
Dr. Gahr was great! I would highly recommend her. As a first time patient with her, she made me feel very comfortable. She made sure to explain what she was going to beforehand and during the exam. I will definitely use Dr. Gahr again!
It was my first visit to Dr. Gahr. She was wonderful and came highly recommended.
She was great! She made me feel comfortable and explained everything to me. And, the office was clean and receptionists were extremely friendly and pleasant. I highly recommend.
She was super friendly and sweet. Makes you feel really conferable.
Great doctor! So glad I found her. Very professional. She makes sure to take time with you and make you feel comfortable. Beautiful office.
It went very well. Will be back again and use her as my regular gyn doc.
I had a great visit! Dr. Gahr made the visit very comfortable and she was very easy to talk to.
She's the best.
Dr. Gahr was great. She listened to my concerns and gave me several options to consider. This was my first visit and I will definitely continue to see Dr. Gahr.
She is the best!! I am very comfortable with her.
She was really wonderful! She took the time to listen to my concerns and was very friendly. I would highly recommend her.
I have been a patient for over a decade, and trust my girl parts with Dr. Gahr. She always answers my questions and makes me feel comfortable - even during the not so fun bits. I recommend her to anyone looking for a OB/GYN.
Very satisfied with the practice and the Dr.
Love her! Dr. Gahr spends time with you...she is open, honest, sincere. I have been with her since I moved to NYC in 2002, including during a pregnancy. You can't find a better physician anywhere.
she was great.
Scheduling was simple. Dr. Gahr was prompt, kind and gentle. She explained everything and answered all of my questions and concerns. Her staff is nice and makes you feel welcome. Kudos to Dr. Gahr... her bedside manner is exactly what I needed to calm my nervousness. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to my mom or best friend.
I absolutely love Dr. Gahr. She spends so much time talking to me and making me feel better about whatever is on my mind. She's the best obgyn I've ever gone to and would recommend her again and again.
Great bedside manner and calming presence. Very candid and "real" which is especially important for this type of doctor. I had to wait an hour in a gown which was not ideal or comfortable. Her staff didn't close doors for my privacy when interviewing me and seemed harried/understaffed.
I've followed her to a third office location!
she is very comprehensive and nice!
She is so friendly. You can ask any questions to her and she spreads the positive energy.I am impressed. I highly recommend her to all my friends.
I am a long-time patient of Dr. Gahr and I absolutely love her. She remembers all my details, is kind and caring, and is an excellent doctor. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
She was friendly, professional and thorough. I felt she listened to my concerns and took them seriously. She was careful to explain what was happening during the exam.
Dr. Gahr is fantastic and her office staff were very helpful and accommodating.
I had a really good experience with Dr. Gahr when I had to go in for a difficult test. She was really helpful and answered all questions with care. Her office and labs are really up to date and sparkling clean. I would recommend her very highly.,
I like her very much. But there was an issue with my insurance (NOT her fault), and they said they would submit it anyway, but that I might get a bill for the visit.
Dr Gahr is wonderful. She takes her time with you and is very easy to talk to. I highly recommend her. Her staff is professional - they answer the phone promptly and the wait is 5 minutes.
Dr. Gahr was great made me feel very comfortable and was easy to talk with. Staff was great as well!
Great doctor. She is friendly, professional, and down to earth.
She was a great presence, and good at answering questions.
Hesitant to leave Dr Gahr such good feedback -- may be harder to get an appointment! She was wonderful.
She was very helpful, gave me plenty of options for treatment and was very friendly.
She is a great doctor! Excellent bedside manner and she treats you with respect.
Friendly, easy to talk to and obviously very experienced. Made an uncomfortable procedure as comfortable as it could be.
After trying 3-4 obgyns in NYC I think I've finally found the right doctor. Dr Gahr is absolutely fantastic, spoke to me in detail and took the time to answer all my questions. She has a great personality and for the first time in NY I felt like a doctor actually cared to make me feel comfortable - I've always felt rushed through appointments with other doctors and they seemed like they couldn't care less. It was refreshing to finally see a warm doctor who knew what she was talking about. The only con was the wait time, it took almost an hour to see her, but she didn't rush through the appointment at all - so I was glad to have waited.
I like Dr Gahr, but she is very disorganized. I have been a patient for three years and every single time I see her there is a problem with my billing and it is difficult to get it cleared up with my insurance company.
I feel very comfortable with Dr Gahr. She gave me more information than I have gotten from my previous dr, who ive been seeing for over 5 years.
I had a pretty good experience overall for my 1st visit. The ladies were all nice. The Dr was easy to talk to. I think i understand how one may feel overwhelmed when the Dr suggests extra tests than you normally have during a visit. the examination was pretty quick otherwise. The wait time in the exam room was maybe 10 min...not terrible but i was getting anxious. I won't mind visiting again.
Dr. Gahr was amazing! She made me feel like I'd been there a million times. She answered all my questions and more. It was really a great experience for me and I would highly recommend her!
The secretaries and nurses were quite unorganized and understaffed, but I thought Dr. Gahr was fantastic -- really smart and efficient and made me feel very comfortable.
Doctor is very kind and easy to talk to. Office environment is confortable and staff is kind.
She was great, made me feel as comfortable as possible during my annual exam. The office is also very pleasant, as are the support staff.
I've been going to Dr. Gahr for about 4 years or so and she's always great. Highly recommend her!
I had an uncomfortable and unprofessional appointment with Dr. Gahr. She seemed inexperienced and instead of suggesting that I should wait to see another doctor she awkwardly fumbled through my appointment, only to incoherently deliver bad news. Awkward and lacking an acceptable bedside manner. Additionally, practice seemed disorganized.
Dr. Gahr was excellent. This was my first visit at her office and she was one of the nicest doctor's that I've ever met. She was thorough and she took a hands on approach to my situation. She had to refer me to another doctor but she took it upon herself to call the doctor and schedule me an appointment. She was excellent!!!
I love Dr. Gahr. She's very easy to speak with and makes the entire process as quick and painless as possible. I was devasted when I had to switch doctors due to my insurance.
She does not rush you. She is sympathetic to your needs and concerns. She is warm and non-judgmental, which is important. Very thorough exam and she answers all questions. The whole staff is a pleasure.
Dr. Ghar was excellent. She has a great bedside manner and answered all of my questions. She gave me excellent care.
Dr. Gahr was great! She has a very calm demeanor and I felt totally comfortable with her.
By far the best GYN doctor Ever! She makes you very comortable to talk about anything and relax during any precedures. Shes GREAT!
I finaly found a good Dr. as Dr. Gahr. I like her clear answers and gave me a detailed explanations of my condition.
She's great -- funny and thorough. Great staff and nice office. Go there now!
She's great! Very personable, intelligent and just all 'round a doctor I feel comfortable with. Would definitely recommend her.
She was great. Very understanding. I felt well taken care of
She is extremely professional and caring of the patient's needs. She is also very understanding and kind.
She is very pleasant and the staff was very accomodating. Office is clean and in convinient location.
I thought she was wonderfully easy to talk to! She provides an atmosphere that is comfortable and tries to work with your needs and wants. Highly reccomend her!
Dr Gahr answered all my questions and really spent time discussing my concerns. Great Bedside manner! Her receptionists were all very nice and I appreciate the reminder call.
She has a great bedside manner. I was very comfortable.
wait time was very bad (nearly 2 hrs), but Dr. Garth really takes her time to talk and listen to you - so it is worth it.
You are just another patient to her. Doesn't take time to explain things, is pretty much in and out and isn't really sympathetic to complications. All she said to make me feel better was at least you have insurance!! This is before anything that was wrong with me was confirmed!
She is a very accommodating Doctor. Intellident and soft spoken.
Dr. Gahr was great. She had terrific bedside manner and was very thorough. I highly recommend using her. She makes you feel very comfortable.
The doctor is fantastic in every way.
She is the best Gyn I have ever been to!! Very friendly, answered all my questions, and showed me the attention I needed!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Dr. Gahr was extremely sweet, completely put me at ease, and was patient with all my questions. The rest of the staff was also extremely nice. I'd highly recommend her.
I really have a wonderful experience. Dr. Gahr was very relaxed and immediately made me feel comfortable. I would highly recommend her.
This was a very good experience. She was very kind and willing to answer any questions. She made me feel comfortable.
Dr Gahr was very nice, gentle, and answered all of my questions in great detail. I would definitely go back to her, but my insurance recently changed and her office doesn't take my new policy. Boo!
Like another reviewer said, you just another patient to her; The technique and equipment in her office were nice, but she didn't explain much to me about my condition in an enthusiastic way as to show how she could help to solve this condition. All I remember her saying was to take birth control pills and that leaves a sense of her lacking of knowledge on other treatment options. The waiting time was long, and when I called back to ask for a copy of my test results, I still didn't get them as of today. NOT recommended.
Dr. Gahr is fantastic. I was very nervous but she was very assuring and very nice. She is very down to earth, asks question and listens to the answer. She is the kind of doctors everyone hopes for. Every on at the office was friendly.
Great doctor but really long wait time..clean office
She was great; I would totally recommend her!
This was my first time using ZocDOc and I was nervous about what I'd find... Dr. Gahr was fantastic. She spent a long time going over my medical history and answering my questions. I felt very comfortable with her and will definitely be returning.
she was great; responsive, pleasent, engaged, informative. I would totally go back!
Dr Gahr is very personble and took the time to answer all my questions without me feeling rushed. As a Dr, shes very approachable and down to earth which I really appreciated. The office is also very clean, organized and modern. The nurse was very nice too. Very comfortable atmosphere.
I really liked the doctor, but it was two and a have hours until I saw the doctor and 3 hours by the time I got back to work. Preposterous!
I was very satisfied with Dr. Gahr and the entire team and the whole treatment. I highly recommend Deborah and the whole office. And ZocDoc is a fantastic service, makes scheduling so much easier and less frustrating. Great experience!
Dr Gahr was great. She was very friendly and helpful and answered all my questions. The only issue was the wait time. I waited over 1 hour to see the doctor and a 20 minute exam took over and hour and a half.
Dr. Gahr is great. She is friendly, appraochable and easy to talk to. It was probably the fastest and most pain-free annual exam I have ever had. Dr. Gahr didn't rush me and answered all my questions in-depth. I felt much more educated about GYN issues when I walked out of Dr. Gahr's office!
