Verified Patient Reviews
Echoing what other reviewers have said, the wait time is long so don't go if you're on a time crunch. The facility was very clean and the nurses and staff were all friendly. I thought Dr. Boryslavska was a bit hard to hear because she spoke so softly, however the appointment went quickly and she was able to give me the prescription I needed. I'd recommend this place for people who aren't able to leave work during the day as this office has convenient after-work hours.
I have been a patient for a little over 2 years. The doctor still asked an important health question that can be easily found in my chart. The doctor did not take the time to review my chart before she walked in the room. Unfortunately, the bedside manners is dependent on the current insurance I withhold. The doctor was transparent that she wanted to maximize my insurance benefits,before even asking the reason for my visit. Apparently my coverage was much more important than the reason for my visit. In the middle of treatment she had one of her employees ask me for payment. I confirmed to doctor and team members that cost was not an issue. Therefore, I asked if a credit card can be a form of payment. The employee confirmed "yes" they will accept credit card. Then 10 minutes later during my treatment the employee approached me and confessed that the credit card was down and if I had cash (I was the last patient, they must have closed the day out) i. I sat in my chair flabbergasted. I had to run across the street to an ATM to retrieve payment for my visit. After leaving the practice I felt horrible and disappointed. Please note that for a living I work healthcare. I fully understand how insurance policies, OSHA compliance, and practice management works. I will NOT be returning. No patient should ever be treated in this way.
She was very comforting and caring. I highly recommend her. She made me feel relaxed and soothed!
Just as everyone said, long wait to see the doctor, but she was wonderful and knowledgeable once she was in the room!
The doctor was nice but I had to wait way too long for the appt. I had somewhere to be and it just was far too long to wait
Despite the long wait, I was very pleased with her. She took her time to answer my questions and was very thorough.
Dr. Boryslavska was incredible, she really takes the time to talk to you and goes beyond the initial reasons for the visit. The wait time was a bit long but I could tell it had been a busy day. I would say if you are in a hurry or only there for a quick visit, expect to spend more time than normal, and plan accordingly. However, she is definitely worth the wait. The office/clinic itself was clean and the staff was courteous and other than the wait time, everything else was superb!
She speaks really softly and quickly so I had to ask her to repeat my blood test results a couple times.
I wish the receptionist had more discretion. Had yo bring my cup of urine put in front of all the other patients
She was very sweet. I went for a first time exam and Pap smear and I explained that this was my first time, and she was thorough about all the tests that would be done. The wait time is a bit long, but not terrible. You'll get results in 10 days.
Dr. Boryslavska took the time to hold my hand while my blood was taken today because I felt like I was going to pass out. In a bad situation she made me feel comfortable and cared for in a way that I haven't felt from a doctor in a very long time.
She was amazing! Extremely gentle and made sure I was very comfortable.
Friendly and kind servive from all staff. Very knowledgeable doctor, really investigates and helps solve your ailments. Highly recommend.
Dr. Halyna is wonderful. She was so supportive during my entire pregnancy and my daughter's delivery. The wait time is rough. I think there are just too many patients for this practice.
Halyna was non judgmental, kind, and informative. One of the best gyno experiences I've had in a while!
A wonderful caring person
She is very professional and compassionate.
The best and sweetest doctor I have seen! You'll have to wait to see her sometimes but it's well worth the wait. And she'll always make time for you... It doesn't take a month or more to see her. You can usually see her within the same day or next. That convenience to me is worth an hour of my time. No problem. Also, she's great!! Always looking out for me.
It was two hours after my appointment time before the doctor came in to see me. I usually have to wait around an hour before seeing the doctor here, but two hours is just ridiculous. Very disrespectful of people's time, and they don't even apologize for the wait.
The nicest Dr. I've ever had! Attentive and explanatory and engaged. Great!
Sometimes the wait times can be long. I recommend going before 4 PM if you do not have time to wait. However, the service from the doctor and her staff is always excellent. I've been going here for a little under a year and have never had a bad experience. Highly recommend Dr. Boryslavska
I completed all of my info prior to appt, but still had to fill out all the paperwork. Long wait, which I was expecting from other reviews. Friendly staff, apprpriate visit, but it has been over a week and I am still waiting for results.
really good doctor and great clinic!
Warning for the LGBTQ community. As a doctor, I was sure she would understand the mechanics behind gay sex. She clearly does not based upon some of the questions she asked me. Lesbians, stay away.
Doctors were nice but the wait time was terrible. 1.5 hours past my appointment time.
Halyna was wonderful and made me feel very comfortable. The only downside was the wait time - 1 hr and a half wait-time is way too long!
Dr. Boryslavska was incredibly nice and gave me her full attention. She was personable, kind, and made me feel comfortable in the office. The only negative I have about my appointment is that I filled out a lot of paperwork despite having submitted my information on ZocDoc.
Dr. Boryslavska is very nice and professional. I can higly recommend her, if you have enough time for the visit. Everything what people wright about wait time is true, so be ready. But in spite of that I will definitely come back to her office.
The best doctor ever
Just wish waiting time was less than time waiting
She's absolutely the best . I've been going there for the past few years and she always very professional , caring and friendly
Dr. Boryslavska is absolutely fantastic! I feel extremely comfortable with her. She will tell you whats going on with you and will not hold anything back. I am glad I found her as my primary doc/gyne.
She was very friendly, attentive and it was clear that she is personally invested in her patients.
Very very nice and accommodating staff.
This office is very unprofessional and does not care about urgency. The doctor mistakenly wrote my birth control prescription for only 9 months and would not refill unless I came in. Typically this type of prescription is written for a full year. Insurance companies only cover 1 annual appointment a year, so this was impossible. The office did not call me back for 5 days until I called hourly. I still do not have my prescription and will not be continuing care with this physician.
Very knowledgeable, professional, and kind doctor and so is any other member of her staff. Would highly recommend
Halyna is one of the most caring doctors I've visited!
Apart from the really looooooong wait time, the experience was great. Dr Halyna is a great doctor!!!!
Great doctor! The only downside was the long wait.
As a new client, I am always nervous the first time I visit a clinic. This office was very accommodating, professional, fast, and frankly had a soothing atmosphere. Looking forward to the next time I go in!
It was a great experience. I has visited Dr. Boryslavska office once before, and it was good too, but today I was gladly surprised that they moved to the new office which is bigger and much nicer. She was very helpful and took all my worries away. And the prices on all tests I got done today are a waaaay cheaper than if I went to any other clinic. ( I don't have an insurance, so it is really matter to me) .
Amazing, very knowledgeable and explained everything as she was examining.
I had my first visit with Dr. Boryslavska and I was really amazed at how attentive and helpful she was. She listened to my personal circumstances and provided solutions that really worked - one being acupuncture and massage, also done in this office and covered by my insurance. She as well as her whole team were kind, very friendly and I felt very taken care of and reassured. Thanks so much!
Warm, professional and incredibly intuitive. She knows her stuff! And wasn't quick to offer meds- highly recommended holistic approaches first (e.g yoga, herbal remedies, etc.)-- for stress/anxiety (nothing of urgency)-- she's an active listener and just seems so wise. Love!
She seemed distracted.
Halyna is an amazing Doctor, but I would not reccommend anyone to her. The wait time is always an hour sometimes more. You're lucky if it's only half an hour. They are very unorganized and every day is a chaotic day there. BUT today was even worse because they didn't even have my name down after I made an appointment and had received an email confirming the appointment date and time. The front desk lady didn't even try to help. In the past I waited the long wait time and dealt with the unorganized mess (once they could not find my ultrasound results) because I really trust and like Dr. Halyna, but after today I'm done.
Dr. Boryslavaska was great! She was very comforting and reassuring during the entire appointment, and even provided recommendations based on what she thought was necessary if my insurance would/wouldn't cover it. Loved the experience, and will definitely return.
Wonderful Doctor. I am new to Chicago and very to happy to find Halyna. Look forward to my next appointment which says it all.
It was everything I needed
She was great!
Staff and MD were very kind, professional and caring.
Dr. Halyna and her staff are by far the greatest people to go to if you are feeling ill. They are very kind and friendly and I honestly have a good time when I am there. The place makes you feel like family! I don't consider this a setback but perhaps others would is that you do wait for a little bit. Dr Halyna has a lot of patients to see so you usually wait between 30mims and an hour but it is totally worth the wait. Just bring a magazine or go on your phone. Great place!
From my mother
Very knowledgeable, professional and gentle doctor.
I love Dr. Haylna! So smart and sweet.
Dr. Boryslavska is a great Doctor you could feel it as a patient that she has concerned about you I could say that she could able to take care everybody not only pregnant women she is my highly recommended to everybody !!!
I'm firing all my other doctors.
Office is really small and I walked pass by and saw people just sitting there! Not so nice environment! I can hear other conversation! Privacy is not so much here!
Dr. Halyna is sweet and patient. I've come to her many times under excruciating pain due to various chronic conditions. She always makes time for me. She doesn't have to but she does. Ironically, a "holistic" doctor I was starting to see (thinking she could offer alternative medicines and options) doesn't have time to see me when there is an urgent situation or even recommend someone else. Dr. Halyna truly cares. It is like going to see a an aunt who really cares about you.
This was my first visit with Dr Boryslavska. I am extremely impressed with the care I have received thus far and will continue to be a patient at this practice. Dr Boryslavska is knowledgeable, respectful and dedicated. Her staff is wonderful as well. I am so happy I found them.
Dr. Boryslavska was amazing. I hadn't seen a doctor that was so great at communicating everything that was going on during the appointment. I learned a lot about my physical self and she was very sweet and kind when discussing my personal life as well. I felt very comfortable with her for it being a first visit :) Glad I finally found a new doctor for these needs.
She was awesome! She had just delivered a baby the night before and still came to work to care for her patients. She really wants the best for her patients. Will definitely be going there again
Dr B was friendly, intuitive and professional. I will be returning.
Dr. Boryslavska and her staff are all simply wonderful. I have never had such a pleasant experience at a first time doctor before. Her professional and courteous demeanor put me at ease right away, and I'm so glad that I've found her. Thank you, ZocDoc!
It was a little bit of an odd location getting there by public transit. I had never been to the Ukrainian Village, but needed to see someone quickly. It was definitely an interesting experience, but the care I received was great. It took a little while to be seen, but the doctor was very thorough and ended up having me do blood work for something completely unrelated to what I came in for. Definitely more of a holistic doctor which is great to come by. It's also wonderful she has such late hours on Monday. Very patient centered, which is awesome to find. Will definitely go back (even though it's pretty far away)
Great doctor, very patient...and understanding.
I requested a doctor in the loop and somehow ended up in Ukrainian village, the doctor was nice but had a very thick accent and rough English, hard to get medical advice when you can hardly understand. I visited the doctor for a skin condition I wanted her to look at and she tried to insist I get blood tests done for white blood cells, thyroid and etc. She also questioned giving me a Pap smear. It seemed as though once she saw I had insurance she wanted me to take every test possible. The who experience was nuts
Very helpful and detail. She was knowledgeable about my concern
This doctor is amazing. Yes, i had to wait abt 40 min but it was worth it. Halyna is very nice and caring, made me feel very calm and comfortable.
This clinic advised me to my friend, I went and did not regret.
Dr. Boryslavska always gives a thorough examination and really listens to your concerns as a patient.
Halyna is a perfect doctor, but waiting time for her is horrible, even if you have appointment! Some people really don`t have a time for waiting. If so why should we do this appointment, if we can just come?!=)
Dr. Boryslavska is so gentle and caring. I love that I didn't feel rushed. I have been struggling with weight fluctuations and acne for years and Dr. Boryslavska was the only doctor to suggest that this may be an internal issue. She was thorough with her examination and I cannot thank her enough!
She really cared about me.
Dr. Halyna has a very caring and personable demeanor. The only downside is the wait is long and she is extremely busy so you'll be in for a wait. However, so far it's been worth it as her attention and knowledge is a breath of fresh air.
She's a wonderful doctor who truly cares. Be prepared to wait awhile.
She was very nice and answered any questions I had, when I finally saw her. She has a pretty thick accent, so I had a little bit of difficulty understanding some of the words she was saying. I had a 50 minute wait in the waiting room, then the nurse took my weight and blood pressure, then another 20 minute wait before the doctor came in for a quick consultation. She mentioned that they would be moving locations accross the street soon, to a bigger place, to hopefully cut down the wait time.
She is terrific! Listens, efficient and immediately took blood and urine sample. I can come back the next day for a sonogram! Appreciate that I didn't have to go to different places for blood work and sonogram. Very pleased!
She's is very thorough and makes you feel very comfortable.
She was very well spoken and made me feel comfortable
So welcoming and was very thorough. Would highly recommend to any of my friends!
Lovely, caring lady, provided excellent care. Quite motherly, even :)
It took a while to be seen, but Dr. Boryslavska was great!
Thank you , Dr B. You are the best
She is very nice and friendly. She makes your feel very comfortable and is good at asking the right questions to pull more information out of you.
I felt very comfortable
She was amazing and treated me so well! She will def be my family doctor since I'm new to the city. Highly recommend her!
Dr. Boryslavska was extremely caring and thorough. She really listened to me and provided excellent care. I am very pleased with Dr. Boryslavska and the rest of her frindly team.
Dr. B is a good doctor, she explains the details to her patients and answers all of their questions. I recommend Dr.B if you don't mind long waiting time. However, the waiting area is comfortable.
Very attentive,nice and professional!
It was great!she took the time to treat me for other things.it was awesome.having blood work done without feeling it.:)
The greatest MD!!!
Dr. Boryslavska was so kind and thorough as were the nurses and receptionist. I got in right away (made my appointment the day before) and my follow up is in less than two weeks. Plenty of availability. I did have a wait quite a while to be seen but that didn't take away from my overall impression of the clinic. I've been searching for a good caregiver and I believe my search is over!
Very professional, caring and understanding!!! I highly recommend this doctor to other people!!!
Great as usual!
Dr. Boryslavaka was amazing she was one of the nicest doctors I have ever met with. She was very helpful and clear with what procedures she was going to do. I will definitely be going back to her!
I should have known that the wait would be so long once I realized it was a family care clinic. The staff and doctor were kind and caring though and that's always better than having a quick and smooth visit with an office that has curt staff. I didn't include 5 stars all around because of the wait and because the time with the doctor felt a little rushed. Though it was rushed it still felt thorough so I would probably recommend her to a friend.
Dr. Boryslavska was extremely helpful - she asked a lot of questions and really wanted to get to the bottom of my issue. She provided a lot of options for me, and was extremely kind throughout the process.
Wonderful doctor who put me at ease!
Very friendly staff.
Dr. Boryslavska and her amazing staff treat you like you were their own daughter. I can't tell you how many times they have shown up for me and looked out for me. It's truly a family care clinic, in that they care like family would. I've sent all my girlfriends here, and I'll never see another doctor in Chicago if I can help it. She's the best, honestly and truly.
She is so very nice and knows her stuff. Always available to help and answer any questions or give you more information. Referred me to her back specialist once for back pain!
Dr. Boryslavska is a very experienced, kind, and caring doctor, with a wonderful helpful staff. I am extremely grateful to them for taking care of me. So glad my friend Katia recommended her to me!
She is absolutely the BEST doctor I ever meet. Very friendly, professional ,she took her time with me and answer all my questions. I would definitely recommend her to everyone.
Was very, very rushed but the doctor & nurse are amazing!!
Dr. Boryslavska is amazingly genuine, knowledgeable of women's health. She has such a vibrant spirit. Highly recommended.
Halyna Boryslavska was incredibly kind! She made me feel very comfortable and well cared for.
First time parient. She is very sweet and cares about your health more than other doctors I've been to. I going to make her my permanent doctor.
Visit was amazing, never met a stuff nor doctor that took their time to meet your needs!
I went for my annual ob/gyn appointment. The wait was long to start. I had some questions and I know one was answered incorrectly. I did not hear about my abnormal test reslts until six months later, so I followed up with a different doctor.
Good doctor but long waiting time. This might be a result of overbooking. An hour long wait to see doctor, with 30 of those mins in exam room alone without any update on doctor.
She was very nice and very helpful and really cares about your health.
Wonderful doctor !!
The doctor and staff were great. Dr. Boryslavska was knowledgeable and had a great bedside manner.
She is an amazing doctor. I was seen right away and she was so nice and understanding. I'm def. making her my permanent doctor. :)
Dr. Boryslavska is wonderful, I highly recommend her to pregnant and new moms!
The wait time varies, on some days I am seen right away, but some days there is a wait. The office is very accommodating if running late which is really nice. The doctor and her staff are so sweet and caring. Every time I see Dr. Boryslavska, I feel like she is genuinely concerned with my well being and does everything she can to address my situation. I've never felt more comfortable with a doctor and it is so awesome that she is a general practitioner and ob-gyn.
Very efficient and listens well to my medical concerns. Also, very good at treating what needs to be treated at the time as well as explaining in terms that I can understand.
I have had the pleasure of being Dr. Halyna's patient for almost seven years now and I absolutely love her. I feel I found a hidden gem by finding her! She is beautiful inside and out and truly cares about her patients. Her patients' health is extremely important to her. The staff is also always so friendly and courteous.
The doctor was fantastic, however the wait time was ridiculous. I wasn't seen until 45 minutes after my appointment time!
Horrible wait times. She is sincere and caring but rushes through the appointment. She must overbook herself. Office is always busy and wait times long.
She Was excellent! Very nice, warm, and would ask a lot of questions to be sure of the possible causes of my issues. She provided a lot of great feedback and advice and very attentive.
She was very sweet & focused on me! :) It was over a half hour before I saw her, BUT I was also able to book a same day appointment. Halyna is very popular~ it's a small office but the staff is helpful.
Very professional, compassionate and knowledgable.
Dr. Halyna was very personable when the actual visit occurred. However, there was more than an hour wait for the two visits I had scheduled. After 40 minutes they'll bring you into a room. It'll be another 15-20 minutes before you actually see the doctor. I was supposed to receive results from my last visit by the end of the week and it's been well into the second week without a call. I may see Dr. Halyna again, but I'll have to make sure to block out two hours for any future appointments.
This woman is amazing. She is the only doctor that has made me feel comfortable. Heck, I actually look forward to my next appointment Her whole team is stellar and I cannot recommend them enough.
Great doctor. Excellent! Wish she were closer so I could stay with her but too far to be practical since I live in IN.
I will not be returning. It took over an hour to see the technician, and then another 20 minutes after that for the doctor to come in. I came to get a birth control prescription, and she didn't give me any type of exam whatsoever. The entire experience did not seem at all professional.
Dr. Boryslavska is sweet, knowledgeable, and quick I felt at ease and was comfortable the whole time. I will definitely be seeing her again. :)
She is a great Dr sometimes the wait is long but she is worth the wait she very caring wants the best health for you keeps track of everything has a great memory in health and personal conversation nightly recommend her
First, be prepared to wait. Second, be prepared for a really old-fashioned and conservative visit. I shared with her that I was NOT responsible enough to take the pill and I only came to to try another recommended form of contraception, and she refused to give me any prescription except the pill because she said other things are "unnatural" (um, hello, so is birth control) and that I would want to have babies soon and it's better if I just take the pill. I was 20, and I assured her that wasn't in my plans. She told me it would be, and wrote me for the pill. Really unprofessional and unsatisfactory.
Dr Halyna Botyslavska was very personal able. I felt comfortable, the process didn't take long at all.
I have been going to Dr. Boryslavska for almost two years until one day I called to fill a prescription and was told that she would no longer see me because she had patients with more serious issues to deal with. There was no notice from her office to find a new doctor or offer any advice for transitioning. Not even an offer to refill prescription one last time since. I even called back to confirm that she did not cut me off due to anything in my medical records that made her feel she could not see me any longer as a physician or that she could not refill the medicine. I have consulted with medical professionals and have confirmed this is against the code of ethics since the reason why she "cut me off" had nothing to do with my health but her personal preference. I will plan on filing a formal complaint against Dr. Boryslavska and her office.
She is a very nice doctor and really cares about her patients!
She is very busy, but made time for my last minute appointment. I plan on making her my primary care doctor.
She was really nice and made me feel very comfortable. She also seemed to know exactly what I was going through and gave me a sense of hope.
Dr. Boryslavska really took the time to explain my test results and make sure I understood.
I really liked her. Very friendly and knowledgeable. Felt very comfortable asking her questions and she's very helpful.
Very busy office, nice staff and excellent physician. Highly recommended.
I would highly recommend Dr. Boryslavska! She was comforting, understanding and took her time to answer all questions. She was a little difficult to understand due to her accent, but she repeated anything I needed.
It was such a blessing to find a kind, competent gynie! This is the fourth time I have had a Bartholin cyst issue and she treated it in the most effective manner. She is sweet, professional, timely, and experienced. She is the kindest doctor I have ever been seen by; her extensive experience is immensely apparent. I am so relieved to have found her; looking forward to working out my gynecological issues with her; she is now my primary physician.
Wonderful doctor with amazing service and flexible hours!
She was very sweet and very attentive and so was the rest of the staff. I didn't have insurance but she quickly referred me to someone who would help me out.
She was extremely nice and professional. She made me feel comfortable and thoroughly went through my health history to recommend a long term treatment plan for my health concerns. I am really happy I found a new doctor.
The best doctor I have ever had. If she moves, I'm going too. So wise and caring!
A pleasure, which is not something you often say about going to the doctor.
Will be going back to her. Amazingly sweet and knowledgable!
Very detailed, focused, and really takes time to review your charts!
I absolutely LOVE her. She makes you feel comfortable and right at home. You can tell she really cares about her patients and is honest. I am so glad that my husband and I choose her as our primary physician.
I have been searching for a good doctor for years and have finally found her! She is simply amazing and truly cares about her patients.
She was nice and gentle. She calmed my nerves and listened to all my concerns.
It was worth the wait . She was so thorough and kind. You could tell she is committed to doing whatever she can to help you. I will be making her my primary and telling others too,.
Dr. B has a wonderful bedside manner and really listened to all of my concerns and issues with compassion. She did a full range of preventative tests and really individualized her advice to me. I would highly recommend her if you are looking for a general practitioner who will listen and figure out what exactly YOU need.
Great doctor. That was my second appointment with Dr Boryslavska and I'm very impressed with the entire visit .
She is very nice
The wait was long, but the doctor is super professional and knowledgable. Worth the wait.
She is so easy to talk to, and really made sure to answer all my questions fully.
Professional, compassionate, and friendly.
A thorough and inquisitive doctor. She helped me with a variety of issues and I now feel much healthier as a result. I do wish she would have presented me with all of my options as far as medications instead of making my decisions for me. The wait times are also upwards of an hour even with an appointment (I waited more than an hour and half past my appointment 3 times, once because she was was 2 hrs late to the office without phoning her nurses), but I believe this has to do with her being a multilingual doctor.
She is professional, knowledgable, compassionate and thorough
She spends time with you and does not rush you inn and out
She is very thorough and straightforward which I like. Very nice and thoughtful. Went above and beyond to make sure I'm healthy.
Loved the Doctor, the wait before I saw her was very long though. But worth it :)
She is very nice I love the fact that she is not rushing to get you out the door. she explains everything very well answers all your question I do recommend her she is going to be my MD
She's amazing! I've never felt more comfortable at a doctors appointment!
Super sweet and super nice!
She is amazing. Very comfortable, fun, and professional. I have never felt so comfortable with a doctor/gyno before. I'm 22 and have had about 8 different gynos. Shes a keeper
Very attentive and asked lots of questions and answered all questions I had thoroughly.
Great doctor who really cares for her patients. She keep me calmed and relaxed when I was stressed. She gave me alternatives which I appreciated. When results came in she called right away to review the results and was proactive regarding follow up appointments. I felt as if my health was under control while a patient of Dr. B.
Staff was so friendly and so nice. Dr. Boryslovaska was very nice, attentive, conversational and professional. She made me feel like she really cared about my health and well-being and it was the first time I had met her. I would recommend her to my friends.
She was very kind and helpful.
Dr. Boryslavska did a wonderful job when you did my physical.
Dr. Boryslavska was very kind and understanding about my fears of seeing doctors. It's been ages since I've had any work done, and she didn't set out to lecture me. I'd definitely recommend her, especially to someone looking for a new doctor in the neighborhood.
She was very nice and seems like a good doctor. I arrived at 10:20am on a weekday and proceeded to fill out the first visit paper work. In that time another patient came in. I completed the paper work by 10:35am and gave it to the front desk. Shortly thereafter another patient came in. Both of these patients were seen before me. At 11:15am I voiced concern about the amount of time this was taking. They led me back to an exam room, tried to give me repeat paperwork and got me set up to wait for the doctor by 11:30. The Dr came into to see me at 11:55am. I was there over an hour and a half before even meeting the doctor. I was very frustrated and very uncomfortable. She apologized and was very kind. At the very least it would have been appreciated if they had managed my expectations by saying "We are behind" or "There was an emergency" or "You can expect to see the Doctor in 25 mins." I really wanted to have a better experience.
Very friendly as well as her staff.
I've actually been seeing Dr. Boryslavska for almost three years now and I absolutely love her and her staff. She is an absolutely wonderful person who makes me feel at ease and has actually tried even helping me with a skin problem I've dealt with for years now that no dermatologists have been able to treat and have given up on me. She truly cares about her patients well-being. I refer all of my friends to her practice.
Dr. Boryslavaska is wonderful! She truly cares about her patients and wants to make sure that they are taken care of.
This was my first visit. I felt comfortable and extremely well taken care of. The receptionist was polite and patient with my questions. The nurse who took care of me discussed my concerns prior to seeing Dr. Boryslavska and then followed up on them afterward while doing blood work (if you are having blood work done here, expect to barely feel the needle). Dr. Boryslavska herself is very intelligent and humble. She has a sweet, supportive and thorough bedside manner. She also clearly demonstrated concern for my overall wellness beyond the immediate reasons I was there. Her office sees men and women so I'm definitely bringing my husband here, too!
Waited an hour to see the doctor. Received an uninvited lecture on locking down a man in a strangely matriarchal tone. She also criticized my psychiatrist's choice of prescription I take and insisted I be on something else. Weird, uncomfortable experience. Won't be going back for next year's exam.
As I rated her above, I liked her very much.
Great doctor who was very polite and made me feel comfortable. Will recommend to others!
It was amazing! First time here for a regular check up, Pap smear, and blood-work.. She made me feel extremely comfortable. So much so, that if I were to ever get pregnant I wouldn't hesitate to have her deliver my baby! On the down side, her English isn't 100%. I still regret nothing from this visit
I thought that she was very genuine. She really cared about what was going on and spent quite a bit of time making sure that she covered every possibility of my symptoms. I had to wait a while to see her, but she was so thorough that it was definitely worth the wait.
My visit with Dr Boryslavska was amazing. She made sure I had nothing wrong with me. She ran all the necessary test that were needed to help me out in the long run.
she was great!!!!
Dr Halyna is very professional. She was very helpful, asked a lot of questions. I would highly recommend her.
She was very helpful and encouraged me to look into my health further which was appreciated. Seems a little old fashioned at times but was a great doctor for a simple check up.
It was great. It was wonderful. I received answers on every question. Very, very professional.
This was my first visit with Dr. Boryslavska. She was thorough, considerate, professional, knowledgeable, and incredibly helpful. I was pleasantly impressed, especially with the typical fear of doctors, and I will now be going to this establishment for any medical need that she handles. The wait time was less than 15 minutes and they stayed much past their closing time to ensure that I was able to get a prescription filled. Easily worth the trade-off.
The best Dr I have ever seen! She was attentive and very knowledgable. I was made to feel comfortable instantly. I will be a loyal patient because is amazing!
A very knowledgeable doctor! Thanks!
Excellent! I hate needles and I did not feel more than a little prick. Already recommended her to multiple girlfriends!
She was wonderful! I will definatly be sticking with her! Only complain would be the wait time at the end of the visit but other than that I recommend her office!
I was late to my appointment, but was still able to see the doctor with reasonable wait time. I had just a few forms to fill out even though it was my first visit thanks to the online pre-visit forms. Everyone in the office was friendly and I was able to practice listening to Russian even though I chose to speak in English. Dr. Halyna was very friendly, thorough and exuded an air of confidence. I felt like I received great care in my visit today and am happy with my choice of GP.
She was fantastic. Some of the lab protocol seemed a bit sloppy but I was so SERIOUSLY impressed with the Doctor. She was so kind and really listened to every single thing I had to say. I asked her if she loved her work an she said , yes! I had a fantastic experience. This is my doctor from this point forward.
Very good! Friendly and professional
Such a wonderful Obgyn. Dr. B takes her time and you never feel rushed. She was able to diagnose an issue that had been overlooked by previous Obgyns. Well worth the extended wait time you are sometimes faced with.
Very friendly, genuinely caring and helpful.
She is so sweet and supportive! She would tell me how strong of a person I was and I felt like she's knowledgeable and kind. I trust her as my doctor!
She was so focused on giving me an allergy test, that she nearly ignored my primary concern. Also, if you indicate that you have 5 alcoholic beverages per week she dives into alcoholism discussion. Again, this took several minutes away from my primary reason for the visit.
Very Professional facility. The paperwork was intense but I can only assume the more they know the better they can treat you :) I would recommend this facility.
Dr. Halyna was a very personable a thorogh doctor. She was sweet, considerate, and understanding. She explained each exam and result to me.
I really enjoyed her and will see you each time!
Dr. B was great. Very professional, very kind, wonderful bedside manner; very gentle, but thorough exam. I'm in medicine, and she was extremely thorough. Highly recommend!
She was very friendly and very gentle. Her medical assistant was calming as I drew blood. Great experience.
She was very patient and listened to all of my concerns. She made me feel comfortable enough to ask any questions. She assured me she would do her best to help me with everthing i was worried about. Priceless!
Dr. Boryslavska and the rest of the staff were very warm. I felt very comfortable talking with her and she effortlessly put me at ease with humor and grace. This office is not fancy, which I actually love. It is down-to-earth and professional and just what I was looking for.
Dr. Boryslavska is a wonderful doctor. She made me feel at ease and was incredibly easy to talk with.
She was very humble and easy to talk to. She made the visit comfortable her and the staff that she has. She answered every question that I had. I loved the fact that she accommodates people who work with the late hours that she has. I will definitely see her again
I thought her bedside manner was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. I definitely recommend her if you are in need of a doctor.
Great! I will be back for sure. Had a good 25-30 min wait but besides that everything was wonderful!
She was very thoughtful and had spent a lot of time with me. Very thorough and highly recommend her. The staff was very nice as well.
She mad me feel so comfortable and was insanely friendly and answered all of my questions. I'm sure the wait would have been less but that day she didn't have a nurse, so that's understandable. Very professional and polite. I will be going back to her for all of my needs!
Dr Boryslavska was so kind, gentle, informative and fast! The staff was super nice and helpful! She genuinely cares about your health and well being! Very satisfied with my visit!
She was detailed and answered all my questions and concerns.
She's awesome , she's was down to earth , very knowledgable and carring , made me feel very comfortable .
Very professional, lovely woman.
One of the nicest doctor I have ever met! Perfect work knowledge. Highly recommended!
Dr. Boryslavska is a wonderful, caring Doctor. Her staff are all very kind and patient.
I felt some comfortable in the office and all of the women were so nice. I would definitely recommend this office to anyone.
I love Dr. Boryslavska. Sometimes it is a little difficult to understand her and her employees (they are Ukrainian I believe) but they are all so sweet and patient.
Dr Halyna made me very comfortable. She took her time to answer all my questions and concerns. I felt so much better after my visit to her. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a OB GYN.
Dr. Boryslavska is always pleasant. She makes me feel comfortable about treatment and asking personal health questions. I will be going to her office for a long time.
Dr. Boryslavska was wonderful! She knew I hadn't been to the OBGYN in awhile and could tell I was a bit nervous. She patiently walked me through everything that she would do and asked all the pertinent questions. You could tell she really cared about the health of her patients and not just getting them out the door. Her staff was also extremely friendly. I highly recommend her!
Dr. Boryslavska was friendly and very knowledgable
I thought she was exceptionally pleasant. She was so sweet and helpful. She has a very strong accent but I didn't have any trouble understanding her. I will definitely see her again:
It was great !
Dr. Boryslavska was very caring and helpful.
You can only enjoy going to a gyno so much, but she is a very genuinely sweet lady and I felt very comfortable with her. I definitely recommend.
knowledgeable and very comfortable :) just make sure to bring cash or check with you because i had to go to the atm they didnt take credit/debit cards
She was the only doctor I've ever had who took the time to ask me questions about myself, not just my body, and to explain to me what my insurance would pay for.
She was wonderful! Went out of her way to make sure I felt comfortable and confident with my experience there. She even did on site, unplanned blood testing for me just to be sure I was as healthy as possible. Definitely going back there.
Dr. Boryslavska, MD was very attentive and made me feel very comfortable. I sometimes couldn't understand her accent very well, but she would ask me if I could understand her. Overall, a great experience. I will certainly return in the future.
I booked my appointment at 4:30 and wasn't brought back until 10 after 5. Aside from the wait time, my time with the doctor was great. She was patient, listened to all of my concerns, and took time to explain things, in detail, to me. Such a refreshing experience after seeing doctors run in and rush out of exam rooms.
My visit was extremely pleasant. I have been to at least four different obgyn's in the last year and half and I have to say my visit with Dr. Boryslavska was on a level of its own. She was so pleasant and explained everything to me. She seemed trust worthy, and caring. I would definitely reccommend her to anyone who appreciates a doctor who truly cares about your well being and doesn't just see you as "another patient."
The office is just her, I think. So the wait was maybe an hour and a half - but they did have awesome candy there. And Dr. B is so sweet. She acted like she could-have-been one of my aunts or something; so nice! Very Polish, like the rest of that neighborhood.
Very professional, very caring. Good support staff too.
It alway's a great visit! She is a wonderful doctor!
Dr. Boryslavska has been one of the best OBGYN I have been too. Yes you may wait a bit during your appointment, but she is the only doctor in the practice. I have been to several other OBGYN and it takes for ever to get an appointment and it takes for ever for a plan of action! I knockout two appointments in one day, one for a pap, and one for an ultrasound.
She's an amazing and caring doctor. I travel 45 min just to see her!
Great bedside manner - answered lots of questions. :)
She is fairly knowledgeable. Definitely more your neighborhood Ukranian doctor in the sense that she is likely to "prescribe" nontraditional homeopathic-esque "drugs." Sometimes she writes a prescription for over-the-counter medicine without telling you that it is OTC, which makes for an uncomfortable conversation with the pharmacist. But to clarify, if you require traditional drugs she will definitely prescribe you them. She helped me with an infection a previous doctor did not realize and she is good at what she does.
This visit was a terrific experience. The staff was very nice and caring, the wait time was short, the facilities were clean and beautifully decorated, and the doctor was fantastic. I Absolutely love her and her attitude to me as a patient. She was professional, very thorough and answered all my questions. Highly recommend this doctor!
Let me preface by saying Dr. Boryslavska is a very sweet, attentive doctor and given different circumstances I would recommend her to anyone. That said, I have struggled multiple times with this practice. My initial wait time was over an hour and fifteen minutes. Dr. Boryslavska is EXTREMELY busy and spreads herself out between two locations. In reality she should hire a 2nd doctor or probably not be taking new patients. I moved to Chicago 6 or 7 months ago and read the excellent reviews so I decided to go here. The doctor is great--when you are lucky enough to get a hold of her. For example, you have to call multiple days in a row in order to ensure a prescription is faxed to a pharmacy. Most importantly, the language barrier is a huge struggle. If English is your only language and you do not speak Russian or Polish, you will have great difficulty communicating with the doctor and staff at this facility. Since clear communication between doctors and patients is critical, I only recommend Dr. Boryslavska to Russian and Polish-speaking patients. While I like this doctor, I will be trying to find new primary care and ob-gyn physicians who are more accommodating in the future.
Dr. Boryslavska is excellent. Despite the hour long wait, my visit was pleasant! The staff is great too.
I've seen Dr. Boryslavska several times for women's health services. I find her to be very knowledgeable, caring, and thorough. She even called me late on Christmas Eve to follow up on a medical issue. I first chose Dr. Boryslavska because of her location, which is close to my home, and her hours, which allowed me to set appointments after work, a flexibility which seems rare among physicians. The wait can sometimes be long, but the quality of care and the flexible hours offset it.
She was great! Just had to wait for a long time. It was worth it. She is thorough, warm, and intelligent. Didn't miss a beat. Really liked her and will be back.
She's wonderful very professional answered all questions and concerns...
Dr.Halina Boryslavska is very profesional person. My visit to her was very succesful. Her stuff is kind and polite. I recommend her to everybody!
Dr. Boryslavska was very friendly and made me very comfortable. Her staff was excellent as well. Highly recommended.
Everyone in the office was very helpful, I felt very comfortable with expressing the purpose for the visit. Chances of going again are very likely.
This being my first trip to a gyno, I was a little scared of what to expect. Dr. Halyna and her staff were great. Everything was professional and she made me feel very comfortable. She was very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions so I could understand them and more. Although I sat in the waiting room for almost an hour, I still didn't mind. The receptionist was very friendly and I will definitely be returning to see Dr. Halyna in the future.
She was absolutely amazing! I'd recommend her to everyone
Well, I've been seeing Dr. Halyna for almost three years now. I will never go anywhere else. She is pleasant and great at her job. I have never had a doctor I liked or appreciated more. When I have babies, she will also be my physician. I also enjoy Marta, the office administrator and the nurses. Everyone is so kind within the office and I truly feel like they care.
I had a really pleasant experience, especially for a gynelogical exam. The staff is really pleasant and friendly. Dr. Boryslavska will be my regular doctor!
This was my worst visit to a doctor. I did not have any major problem. But she scared me with the possibility of having a problem and what could that problem lead to. She might be a good doctor but did not give me any mental comfort.
Loved how caring Dr. Boryslavska and her staff are. Very kind and gentle women. Took time to really understand my complicated situation and educate me about being healthy. Oh, not to mention they offer message therapy which is AWESOME!
She was really rough and rushed through the appointment. They also didn't accept my insurance even though she was listed as accepting it.
A very good doctor, very thorough.
SHe was pleasant and very detail. She is a good doctor and I hope to stay with her for my medical care
I absolutely love Dr. B. She is great.
Very friendly and attentive staff, clean facilities, and the doctor's great bedside manner and attention to my concerns all made up for a very positive initial experience. The wait time was the result of this being the first day back after the holidays.
Great doctor, staff very friendly, they really try and get to know their patients
Dr. Boryslavska is the best docotor I have ever been to, hands down. Her nurse was also the bomb. They treated me like a real person, actually listened to what I had to say, cared about my full health instead of the isolated thing I came in for, and were super nice to me when I almost passed out from drawing my blood. Dr. B even made me some tea to get up my blood sugar! I love these ladies!
I can't believe I just stumbled upon this office online, and they turned out to be a 5 star place in my neighborhood. I am very pleased with the service thus far!
