Dr. Markoff is one of the best doctors out there. I feel extremely lucky to have found him. He is kind, extremely knowledgeable/capable, and truly takes the time with each patient, including getting back to you about results. I'm not aneasy customer, as medical stuff is my kryptonite, and he and his office staff are absolutely amazing. Very patient and understanding, super responsive. Seriously, one of the best practices I've discovered in NYC.

Dr. Markoff is very thorough, cautious and patient. An excellent surgeon, he did my hysterectomy a few years ago, the surgery went very well with minimal bleeding so that I could recover quickly. He is intelligent and calm, the type ofdoctor that I trust, knowing that I am always in good hands.

I had two troubling incidents with Dr. Markoff. He prescribed me a new birth control pill, and it gave me the worst cramps I've ever had. I called to request being put on my previous medication, and he dismissed my painand said that wasn't normal, and that they'd pass in the next month or two. It did take two months to pass, but I did not appreciated the dismissal of my own pain. Secondly, during the exam he suddenly gave me rectal exam with only a few moments of warning. I've never had an OBGYN do this, and I felt violated.

I’ve been coming here for over 5 years and have had 2 children delivered by doctors at this practice, and one’s more on the way. I trust them and love that they make sure you meet all the doctors before yourdelivery date, so that you’re not surprised by a new face if your doctor isn’t not on call the day you give birth. The receptionists and nurses are very sweet too. I love this practice.

I have been a patient of Dr. Markoff for about 25 years. He has delivered all three of my children. I have twice been a surgical patient of his due to a large fibroid and a miscarriage. He is absolutely thebest doctor I have ever been to. His kindness and compassion are so comforting. His ability to listen to concerns and discuss your health care are outstanding. I completely trust his medical skills, opinions and advice. I look forward to my annual visits because it's always a pleasure seeing Dr. Markoff.

Dr. Markoff is a highly competent doctor. I've seen him for just under three years, and he delivered my son via c-section (which was necessary due to preexisting medical issues). He's a consummate professional. He's definitely patient, direct,and he doesn't make me feel silly for any questions I ask about my health, pregnancy, or delivery. I've seen people ding him for not being warm enough. Though he isn't the warmiest and fuzziest doctor, I find him to be kind and easy to talk to, which is what I value.
