Dr. Brown and her team were very pleasant, professional and knowledgeable. I was the last appointment and although I thought I'd be rushed, I didn't feel it at all. They gave me the same time and waited until my questions wereanswered and next appointment scheduled. I'll definitely be going back.

Dr. Elaine Brown was very professional and has a caring nature. Her front desk staff also behaved professionally and my wait time was less than a half and hour. This place is definitely my go to place when I need tosee a GYN, and will be returning may 5th for my next appointment which I'm sure will be quick, efficient, and effortless.

Wow. Where do I start. For one, she was in a rush, and this was not told to me beforehand. So I still went, in hopes of discussing my issues with her. I was seen by the receptionist/nurse for the basicslike height/weight and while she was not rude, she wasn’t pleasant. Typical receptionist with an attitude. After I undressed for the examination, Dr. brown came in and barely introduced herself. She quickly skimmed through my paperwork and I didn’t get any chance to discuss my reason for being there, she just jumped into the exam. Because she didn’t read my paperwork thoroughly she must’ve overlooked where I put that I was NOT sexually active. This led to a traumatic, excruciatingly painful Pap smear. She never walked me step by step. Never heard/saw her lubricate the speculum. Within 1 second the tool was shoved inside and it was so bad. I wanted to tell her to stop right away. Right before she pulled it out i cried. It was in for about 4-5 minutes and she “had trouble finding my cervix”. She wanted me to ask her questions during the pap which I couldn’t speak because I was in such pain. She just wanted to rush through my concerns. I felt violated. I even asked her to be extremely gentle but she was in a rush to catch a cab, so she didn’t care. Extremely unprofessional, selfish & I would not recommend (especially for a pap) unless you are a sexually active woman. During the pelvic exam, she told me she “felt something” and she didn’t even care to elaborate. I was the one who had to get her to speak more on it. My follow up (3 looong weeks after), I never received a call back on my results. I had to go and get them which was ridiculous because I needed medication this whole time and had to wait an entire 3 weeks for them. The follow up was sped through even though she said she’d answer all of my questions that she couldn’t on the day of the prior appointment. She told me to get a pelvic ultrasound (that I had to remind her of as if I’m the doctor) and she never even gave me the referral! Beyond careless. I previously had a male gyno and wanted to try a woman. I’m returning back to my caring male gyno! I made a huge mistake coming here!

I highly do NOT recommend this doctor and this office to anyone. There were many reviews from previous patients which caused me to see her. Going in initially she was kind and the nurses were too. Every visit after that, thefront desk lady, Alani with the different colored hair/hat (?), always showed an attitude and talked down on me because she couldn't hear me over the loud TV and gets annoyed when I asked questions. When I call the office, she answers unprofessionally (I wonder if I called the wrong # every time she answers). Some dude used to call me from his PERSONAL phone to confirm appointments and one time he answered my call and I heard him clear as day cussing out another driver while he was still on the road. I hung up and was very afraid to go back to this office again after that experience. It seems like Dr. Brown hired close family and friends to work for her so I never was comfortable all the times after my first visit. I continued seeing her only because I was searching for another doctor for prenatal care. Dr. Brown always rushed my appointments and wouldn't give me the time to ask questions. When she called me into her office to discuss test results, and I would finally be given the chance to ask questions (regarding other tests I need to take, or to fill out necessary work papers) she always had to make a comment and would get frustrated. I couldn't go to work for 1 1/2weeks because she and her nurse failed to remember to fill out my paperworks twice and when I reminded them they told me she needs 5 business days to fill them out. When Dr. Brown had patients who were in labor, the nurse wouldn't let the patients in the waiting room know, instead she waits over an entire hour to inform us that she's caught up with a patient in labor and not even in office. I would sometimes have to wait 2hrs - 2 1/2hrs just to be seen for less than 5min (even when she is in office). Their office isn't appealing/welcoming, and the rooms are frightening (very disorganized, supplies out in the open and scattered, plastics from needles or tools from previous patients would still be left on the counter). When I finally found a great doctor for prenatal care, I wasn't even comfortable to go in the office physically to pick up my medical reports because of the nurse's and Dr.'s expected attitude towards my decision. I requested several times via fax after filling out a consent to release my reports to the office and they never sent my records. I had to do some of the tests over again due to this. I couldn't trust her to be there for me at my appointments so she lost my trust to deliver my baby. All the best to whomever continues to go to her.

The staff was nice, but nothing was explained to me. The Dr didn’t even introduce herself before she started poking and prodding. My anxiety going in was high and I was hoping to ask some questions to alleviate it. There wasno time. If you want to feel any TLC I would not recommend. However, the Dr is efficient and seems to know her stuff.

The wait time was a bit extreme. I waited about 45 mins in the lobby, then another 20 minutes in another room waiting for the nurse to take my vitals. Dr. Elaine is great and comforted and talked me through thewhole process as it was my first time seeing an OB-GYN. I would definitely recommend her as a doctor, I just didn’t like waiting so long.

My actual visits with her good the only thing today was myself and my partner was there even before the receptionist. We were sitting there for about 20 minutes before he (the receptionist) walked in, then he looked at us,sat down AND STILL DIDNT SAY ANYTHING !!!! Until my partner said something to him first which I thought was incredibly terrible Our appointment was for 11 the receptionist got there around 1130 and the doctor didn’t come in until around one-ish. Now don’t get me wrong I know that it was some bad weather but we were on time…and if you’re going to be late at least have the decency to at least great us first. We thought that it was incrediblely rude.

Honestly worst experience ever !!! My apartment was for 4:05 and I saw the doctor at 6 . The nurse spoke so low I could barely hear her . She left the room open when she was with me . Thantold me to pee in a cup with no label with my name . In the bathroom there was 4 other pee cups from the patients I’m sure that’s where they test the pee . So unsanitary . I should have left right then but then she told me the doctor was going to see me soon and I had to wait an additional 45 mintues just for the doctor to run out the room while my legs in the air leaving the door open to go check on another patient . She came back in the room and didn’t even change her gloves . She was nice but that don’t make up for her unprofessional behavior . Never going back . I tried to support the community but this was just a disgusting experience .never going back

I had to wait over an hour for the appointment because they booked 4 other clients at the same time. The office was dirty, they left all of the doors open with patients in the room. The nurse did not usegloves when she took my blood. The exam room was dirty with other used equipment sitting on the counter.

I wish the doctor would call patients for results. Instead one has to go, without any notice, to get results. I didn't get my results until months later and they weren't particularly good. They're short staffed. Adding another employee wouldhelp. This was the second time I was asked to sit and wait in a dirty room. Doctor is nice but I won't be going back.

The doctor's office was very disorganized. The receptionist was also the medical assistant? I went in for the routine check up, specified what I was there for, a number of times. Since they have a health app, I assumed I'll receivemy results there. No. I called the office for my results and was told I need to come in. I was not told this from the very first appointment. Of course they'll tell you to come in, just to collect coins. I go in for my results and its not the full panel that I asked for. I had to get blood drawn again. Just for the next time I come in, they missed another testing. How hard is it to listen to your patient and test for what they want?? And the Dr was inattentive.

I will not return to this clinic. Everyone was polite, however, the entire experience was disorganized, the clinic seemed to be understaffed (one person filled both the receptionist and primary nurse role), and some of the practices were unprofessional(leaving exam room doors open with patients being seen inside). I waited over an hour to see the doctor for an exam that maybe took 5 minutes. Dr. Brown did not inform me before she performed part of the exam, and it caused me unnecessary physical pain.

I really like support my community, but after my follow up, I doubt that I will return to this office. The support staff was kind and friendly with the exception of the ultrasound tech who couldn't be bothered to introduce herself,explain the procedure or even speak to me face to face. Dr Brown was somewhat unprepared, she was not familiar with any of the information on my registration form; I thought she would have at least glanced at my paperwork while I waited 2 hours to see her. At the end of my exam she seemed uninterested in collecting urine or a blood sample. She insisted that it was up to me if I wanted those tested and then she quickly left the room.
