Verified Patient Reviews
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 i was 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.
Dr. Kwakye-Berko was very professional and answered all my questions. It was my first Papsmear ever and he did a very good job putting me at ease. The whole process was quick and painless. The receptionist was also very warm and informative.
Very informative and professional. Love love love ....my new Ob.
My visit was excellent.
Very professional and personable. He explained everything and not judgemental
He's the Best!
Dr. Frank Kwakye-Berko is very friendly and he made me feel comfortable. The appointment was quick but I did not feel rushed at all. He also took the the time after my check up to answer all of my questions thoroughly. I was in and out the office in under 30 mins.
Amazing staff. Awesome doctor answered all my questions correctly and was very professional. Beautiful office too.
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 perform an 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 was pleasantly surprised by Dr Berko, he was patient and very informative. The staff was friendly and the facility was clean. I didn't feel like I was being pushed out like cattle. I intend to make this my permanent gynecology office.
Zocdoc had the wrong address listed here and I went there and had to travel all the way back to his new office -.- but everything worked out because I would have never considered this office if it was not in my zip code. But when I finally reached the office I forgot about all of that..He is great ! Service is great ! Inside appearance is great ! Staff is great ! Medical assistants everybody is great ! Will definitely be coming back again..
The staff were very friendly, and the doctor was very comforting, and professional.
Dr. Kwakye-Berko was awesome! He listens attentively to my complaints. He walks me through my procedure step by step. I will definately recommend him to my friends.
I appreciate the fact that he listened to all of my concerns. We talked through different options I never knew about before. He made it a comfortable experience for me. I thought the welcome packet was a nice touch.
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 see a 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.
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 an Anatomic 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.
Extremely smart and kind, would definitely recommend to a friend.
He was very professional , He has excellent bedside manners it was a relaxing visit.
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 in the 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.
A doctor that wants his patients to understand their problems and what steps can be taken RE: diet, that helps u help yourself. His manner was so professional and yet personable. He teaches as he helps one learn better what the problem is and suggests how to be an active participant in ones personal healing process..
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.
Advanced office. Quick process with online info submittion. Friendly staff
It has taken me a long time to find a great Gyn. And now that I have, I'm never leaving. My first visit was in 2012. I have since moved to CA, and have come back every yr for my apt.
Best OB-GYN I have ever been to, and I have been to many. He was polite and professional and very receptive to my questions and concerns.
Wonderful experience. Dr. Kwakye-Berko was friendly, made me comfortable, and answered all my questions.
It was great, did more than what my first obgyn ever did.
I love going here but if you don't want to wait for hours then make an early appointment
Overall, being seen in this office for the first time was a wonderful experience for me. I'm really hoping that this will be my last stop in looking for an OBGYN. Great Job!!!
It was pretty awesome. The female staff helped me with setting up my account to the office so I can review my information online. They welcomed me and gave me a bag. They have this awesome system where you tap a button on the wall to let them when you are ready to be seen. I was congratulated on my pregnancy and given some information and some prenatal vitamins to hold me until I picked up my prescription. The nu
a doctor who was patient, understanding my concerns regarding my health.
I scheduled my appointment via zodoc and when I went in they didn't have me in their system...thankfully they were still able to see me and it wasn't a long wait!
ALWAYS AMAZINGLY PLEASANT AND CONSIDERATE.
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! :)
Fast, pleasant staff. Highly recommend this doctor.
Wonderful wonderful ...In & Out.....Very kind ,Loving & Respect able people
I felt very comfortable with Dr. Frank Kwakye-Berko and he answered all my questions. I would totally refer people to him.
I would recommend this doctor as well as the facility to a friend. Everyone was very polite and the technicians as well as Dr Frank Kwakye walk you through every step. I will definitely be going back for my follow up.
It was great except for the wait time. I arrived at the office at 11:50 and leave at 1:43. Other than that it was a very good experience. I am happy with my new gynecologist.
Very professional and sweet mannered . Made me feel confident in him . Great doctor !
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 appearing arrogant. 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.
My visit was great. He made me feel really comfortable and answered any and all of the questions I had.
Dr. Kwakye was absolutely excellent! It's awesome the way he talks to you before the stir-ups are even pulled out. It really made the whole procedure totally painless. I was really reassured that I was in good hands. He answered all my questions, before and after, and illuminated things that neither previous visits to other doctors nor extensive online research ever did. They have a cool "patient portal" which you can choose to sign up for that allows you to see test results and send inquiries directly to the doctor. I haven't tried it yet, but the (very amicable!) receptionist explained everything and was very forthcoming about helping me sign up if I needed it. Just a note: this office stocks Paragard IUDs but no Mirena. I was referred out to a Planned Parenthood, but Dr. Kwakye volunteered a lot of information about what to expect and how to prepare and when to see him after, so I still feel immensely supported!
Dr. Kwakye is always a pleasure. His bedside manner is impeccable. I hope he will continue to be my doctor forever.
He is the BEST!!!
He is a very warm and personable doctor. His bedside manner is excellent. His office staff is also great. He explains everything that he is doing and makes sure that you are comfortable. It was a wonderful experience! I highly recommend this doctor!
Very professional, the staff made me feel very comfortable in disclosing personal details as well as making me feel confident that my health is in good hands.
Clean, Professional, great experience overall.
He is a knowledgeable doctor one who is patient! He informed me all my options while remaining compassionate! He also listened to all my questions and answered accordingly.... This is definitely my GYN from now on! Even his nurse was friendly ;)
It was great. Nice, quick visit for a regular checkup. I have no complaints
This was my first visit with Dr. Kwakye-Berko and I had an excellent experience. The staff there was very friendly with smiles which makes a big difference. The Dr. Was very gentle and kind. He made me feel very comfortable. I love the fact that they have a computer system where you can log in and view your results that is a definite plus. Overall the experience was wonderful. I believe I will be switching to this office.
I was in and out of this appointment in 40 minutes. The office is clean and the staff are very professional. I would definitely recommend again.
Very professional and safe environment. There was a female nurse in the room, which I appreciated. He did a great job of explaining and talking through each step.
Fast, professional and polite. It was a great experience
He was awesome! So was the rest of the staff I will be coming back of course!
I think it was good. He explained everything he was doing and going to do at the visit. He also answered all my questions i asked and was very specific about them. I'm glad i found him and would recommend him to a friend and family member.
Dr. Frank kwakye Berko was wonderful and i highly recommend him to everyone!
I arrived early, because it was my first visit. I expected to wait to fill out papers; but after that was done the receptionist did not add my name to the list, to be seen. I had to question her. I noticed so many people, whom came in after me were being called; this was annoying. But after the interveiw and seeing the Doctor I was very Pleased. I'm glad I choice this office and I was able to walk Home when I left. One thing, signs all over do not use cell phones yet everyone was talking; annoying.
A bit dismissive of my concerns.
Best OB-gyne I've ever been to. I am a physician myself and very discerning. His bedside manner is incredibly warm and understanding. My pap was over before I knew it - I had to ask him if he did it (how embarrassing, as a doc myself -- we laughed)! I also asked for an IUD and got it the same day with almost no pain, no questions asked! I had some concerns with my IUD 2 months down the road and he saw me right away. He reassured me and made sure everything was normal, and he was right. I highly recommend him to all women.
It was comforting and not rushed. It's a nice facility. I like the system they have in place where you press a button to notify the doctors that your ready to be seen in the exam room
I really like the environment and everyone was friendly and helpful. The appointment just took a little longer than I thought it would but overall I would see this Dr again.
Very professional. Explains everything in detail. The staff is nice and make you feel right at home. This was my first visit and I will continue to go to Dr. Kwakye.
Been there three time and all three time I saw different doctors. The service was great but only wish I could have only one doctor.
Very professional and nice felt right at home. Everyone one was kind and I'm glad i picked them for this interesting journey
It was great, the technology is very up-to-date. It was an overall great experience.
Dr kwakye is such a wonderful person he listens and cares about u o would recommend him to any one he is the best
I think the visit was great, he was very professional took the time out to explain everything in details but what was most important was the greeting I received as been a new patient and the time he took to get to know a little about me. He will be my official OBGYN for now on. Keep up the good work
Very profesional and kind
I think it was great he is a very nice doctor
very friendly, personable and thorough
This was my first visit and I want to come back without a doubt. He was very professional and he put me at ease. The way he explained things to me was very helpful because he said it in a way that the average adult would understand. Very knowledgeable. I already recommended him to my mother.
Through Zoc Doc
Very nice doctor! Reception very nice too, the assistant for the first general questions was not very friendly (maybe bad day for her) but the doctor is great and the organization is impressive. I highly recommend this place.
My date with Dr. Kwayke was great. Actually I seen another Dr by the name of Dr. Ebo. She is also a great doctor. She makes sure she takes her time with each patient to make sure that she fulfills all your needs. I love these Doctors.
He was amazing. I enjoyed it.
Very professional and friendly. The front desk and nursing staff are great as well. Everyone really made me feel welcomed and well taken care of. They made my first prenatal visit a great exerience.
Overall the service was satisfactary. I have a hectic schedule and I depend on Zocdoc to connect the dots when it comes to my medical concerns. thank you

I like the way he took the personal time to talk with me and my mom and he listened the personal attention was very good. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
They are high tech and fully paperless which is wonderful to me. They were able to send my prescriptions to my pharmacy so that by the time I left the office and got there it was ready for me to take home. However, I don't feel like my concerns were heard. I feel like they were brushed off.
The were really nice and I felt comfortable in that space.
He made me feel comfortable
