This doctor changed locations and by doing this I was forced to make an appointment to see the doctor to get refilled. took me three weeks to get an appointment even if I said it was an emergency. I received acall the day of the appointment to informing me that the doctor has to perform a C-section when I come in early. I quickly agreed and left my job early rush to the appointment only to find out that the doctor had left already. His very unprofessional staff never had the common decency to call me let me know that the doctor is not here. So there I am no refill and about yo go on a two week vacation. Love the Doctor, but his workers make him look unprofessional and I am currently looking for a new doctor.

Ridiculously long wait time of 1.5 hours, no concern for patient's time and it was obvious that they intentionally overbook appointments (I arrived a half hour early). No apology from doctor for long wait. Doctor was rushed and recommendedme to Planned Parenthood (I don't need clinic services) rather than another gyn. Disappointing experience.

The wait was a little longer than I was expecting (40 mins). It was a busy Saturday and the waiting room was full. However, the staff and the doctor were friendly and professional. Worth the wait.

The front desk staff was nice and welcoming although they were very upset I didnt have a physical insurance card, even though i had every bit of information they needed. The doctors visit and exam was a little rough, and iwas sore for a bit after, more than three weeks later, I finally get my test results back and they want me to come in for a follow up visit. I have been reading their yelp reviews and other patients have been saying that they have been brought in for follow up, after follow up trying to make more copayments and i wish i could just discuss them in a different manner, unless there are further tests that need to be run. I will probably search for a new obgyn soon.

This doctor is a geat doctor. At least that's what I thought in the beginning until I got pregnant. When I was pregnant I continued going to all my appointments, then when I reached 5 months I was scheduled for anAnatomic exam and I was supposed to find out the sex of the baby. Then the day of my sonogram appointment the secretary called an hour before my appointment to say she is canceling my appointment because my insurance is not active. Every time I went to my appointments my insurance was always active but I didn't know that the renewel date was coming up. The reason I got mad is because the secretary called called an hour before my appointment, she had no sympathy being that I'm pregnant, she didn't give me the option of paying out of pocket or billing me till my insurance comes back on because she was in such a hurry to close the phone in my face. My insurance told me they will cover my bill once the It comes back on but the staff refused. Then when my mom called back the secretary said if i want the sonogram exam done so bad just go to the ER or DOSHI DIAGNOSTIC and hung the phone in my moms face. They act like I was going to run away and never come back to pay my bill, like I'm pregnant where will I run too. It's sad that they prefer money over a woman and her baby's health. Can't wait to leave.

I really can honestly say I had the best GYN visit ever. The office is immaculate. The Medical Assistants were very nice and professional. My wait time was 30-60 minutes only because the Dr had gone to the hospital to performan emergency c-section before my arrival. During this time I was asked twice if I would prefer to see another Dr or wait for Dr Kwayke-Berko. I chose to wait. So very very happy that I did. The most painless GYN exam ever. Even though I'm sure he was running behind schedule due to the hospital emergency, he was very patient with me as well as answered and explained all my concerns. Would highly recommend him.

I actually got to see the doctor himself. It was a really quick visit with the doctor. He went through my ultrasound and told me how far along I was in pregnancy. And because of my age need to go seea genetic counselor regarding high risk. He did not examine me like other ob-gyn doctors have which I don't understand. At every visit the doctor should measure your belly and listen to baby's heartbeat which for the second time has not been done to me yet since I've been seeing doctor. I did get bloodwork done and he gave me prenatal vitamins but they weren't prescribed. Usually my doctor would prescribe prenatal vitamins with iron because of my anemia. And the vitamins the doctor prescribed to me is actually a sample pack. I'm confused. My next appointment is in the next two weeks so I'll see how that goes and if he doesn't listen to baby's heartbeat then I'm better off going to my old ob-gyn.

I really enjoyed my visit. I felt as if the staff and the doctor overall were very personable. However, I would leave feedback for the doctors to remind the nurses to be as professional as possible with their body language inthe treatment room. I felt as if the doctor handled my situation well but the nurses face made me feel worse and it came across as unprofessional and inappropriate. I definitely would go back to see the doctor but the nurse that was with him needs to be spoken to about her professionalism when in such a sensitive environment.

All of the receptionists and assistants were fantastic. The office space is welcoming, clean and crisp. The best part about this practice is that everyone is extremely nice and personable. Although I didn't get to see one of the male gyno's,the female one that attended me made my first gyno appointment ever easy. I would definitely recommend this practice to all of my friends and family.

The doctor himself was not professional nor seems concerned about the patients needs. The other staff and doctors in the office are very attentive and friendly. My midwife who delivered my baby was AMAZING. She was confident without appearingarrogant. She was patient and made the delivery of first child a wonderful experience to remember. Would I recommend this particular doctor? NO! But i recommend the other doctors in the office. The office is clean, wait time is short, and the staff is professional.

I LOVED this Doctor. He was very professional, very knowledgeable made me feel extremely comfortable throughout the entire time. The only downside is that his all female clerical staff, (i'm assuming medical assistant) are not exactly the friendliest, but they weren't the ones in my privates, so it's ok! :)
