I left my former gynecologist because I was uncomfortable with them and didn't like my visits with them. I was nervous going to my first appointment with Dr. Ovitsh but he was extremely friendly and made my visit very comfortable. Hewas very patient with me when I explained my history with him. I'm excited to continue seeing Dr. Ovitsh.

Dr. Ovitsh made me feel at ease with all my questions/concerns and was thorough in his explanations. His calm and positive attitude was very reassuring. Not sure about the rest of the staff but I can say that the nurse who drew my blood was very nice as well.

Dr Ovitsh is the kindest doctor and is very thorough in his examinations. I had left the US 4 years ago and upon returning have come back to see him. He is so patient and clear with his explanations and doeshis best to put my mind at ease in challenging circumstances.

Dr. Ephraim Ovitsh was very kind and made me feel reassured. I was seen fairly quickly, and they had printed my forms that I filled out previously using ZocDoc (which was super helpful). I felt like the doctor listened to whatI had to say and took me seriously. Overall good, non-stressful experience!

Dr. Ovitsch is very kind and gentle. Amazing bedside manner! The person managing his front desk could take a page out of his book. She was rude the entire time. Would it hurt to smile a little and say please?

Dr. Ovitsh was extremely pleasant and friendly. I moved to NYC not too long ago and was used to seeing a familiar female OBGYN for all these years so I was a little nervous having a male examine me but hewas fantastic and made me feel very comfortable. The staff were all very friendly too.

Gentle but competent treatment by the doctor throughout the visit. For the woman who feels she can only see a "lady doctor" (for female health issues), you have nothing to fear with Dr. Ovitsh; he is every bit as sensitive andcaring as any (good) female doctor I've encountered. Pleasant staff and nice warm office atmosphere, too. I no longer dread going in for "my annual"--not in the least; I know I'm in good hands here.

I got there about 10-15 minutes early and was brought in 10 minutes after my appointment time, which was great. It was my first visit, but I immediately felt I made the right choice. He really made me feel heard andwas prepared to run tests based on the blurb I sent when I booked the appointment. He really paid attention to what I was saying and made me feel immediately welcome. Highly recommend!!

The office is pretty old & looks a little dingy, which is the last thing you want when you see an OB/GYN. That said, Dr. Ovitsh is incredibly professional, efficient, and competent. Would recommend if it's a convenient location for you.
