The staff was friendly but Dr. Aptekar was awful! It was my first visit with Dr. Aptekar and he was very rude. He would ask me questions and then cut me off, he kept trying to argue with me and at one point told me that "he's not my servant!" I could not believe the unprofessionalism and will NEVER be back!!

There was a little schedule snafu but all was rectified and went on from there. Everyone was very kind and everything was fast (once I was back there talking to Dr. Aptekar) but also courteous and kind.

Amazing doctor, highly recommended. I felt comfortable after only a minute of him entering the room. The receptionists were a little lacking. At one point they yelled across the crowded waiting room to two patients that they were sorry for the delay, but were waiting for an open Ultrasound room. Borderline HIPAA violation. Very unprofessional. Also asking each other the amount to be charged to the person standing in front of them. Cackling loudly across the room to each other. One patient went up to pay and the receptionist told her she was all set. She had to tell the receptionist that she had not been back to the doctor yet. However this was neutralized with the amazing professionalism by Dr. Aptekar.

Very informative as well as funny. Normally my visit would be very upsetting for most people. We weren't upset but if we were he would have put us at ease with his humor.

dr. aptekar was kind and professional and very knowledgeable however the office staff was so rude to me I don't think I will ever revisit the office. Heather was especially rude to me, she actually raised her voice at me on the phone when i had questions about my bill and would not return my calls. It is unfortunate that a good doctor is surrounded by rude office staff.

After 5 different OB-GYN's over my life, Dr. Aptekar was easily my favorite. He was straightforward without being condescending. He was knowledgeable, very skilled, and spent plenty of time explaining things to me.

I went in because I was worried about cysts. He treated me like I was overacting since there's not much you can do about it. It was the first time I had gone to the doctor about cysts. He was to the point, which is good, but I did not feel welcomed.

Dr was great, i just felt a little pushed to see a colleague in the same building and when i said i wouldn't at this time he rushed to leave the room, it seems like this is something that happens to me frequently at doctors offices!
