Disappointed. Long wait time in waiting room when only one other patient was waiting (almost an hour). When I was taken in, I did not get to see Dr. Kastner until the end of my appointment as I was seen by the resident instead for the appointment. I was never asked whether I want the resident to do my appointment. Office was old and practice is in the process of moving in the coming months. Only one bathroom which everyone must wait to use.

Dr Kastner is professional and empathic. The staff is helpful and welcoming. The wait in her office is way too long. I will have to request the very earliest appointment possible in the future. If an office is running more than 45 minutes late a patient should be informed

Extremely professional yet personable. Dr. Kastner is easy to talk to yet keeps a professional atmosphere during the entire visit. It's easy to trust someone with your feminine and overall well being when they're as passionate and genuine as Dr. Kastner.

My visit with Dr. Kastner was great! She was very thorough, courteous and took the time to explain everything. The office was very streamlined in terms of filling out paperwork and getting everything in the system. The wait was a little long to be seen, but well worth the wait. Would definitely recommend her to anyone!

Everyone in Dr. Kastner's office was friendly and accommodating. This was my first visit with her and honestly, these kinds of appointments are my least favorite. However, Dr. Kastner and her staff helped soothe my anxiety and the appointment went faster than I had expected. And Dr. Kastner is so nice, we had a few laughs and pleasant conversation. I have NEVER laughed at a GYN appointment before. But she is efficient as well. Suffice it to say, as long as I remain a Long Islander, Dr. Kastner will be my doctor.

Dr. Kastner is great. However, she is way to busy/over booked. Unfortunately her staff is busy/rude and unhelpful. So the combination is just a bad experience. Especially well you are dealing with such a delicate topic of your body.

Dr. Kastner was thorough and engaging. She welcomed questions and I didn't feel like she was rushing me out of the office to see other patients. I did wait a very long time to be seen though, when there was hardly anyone in the office. I'm hoping it was just circumstantial, as it was my first visit.

She was friendly. She was not rushed, she listened patiently to me and answered all my questions. She asked about my life outside of my reason for the visit. This tells me she cares and sees me as a person, not just a patient!
