Ilona is amazing! I was pretty angry that my appointment was 30 min late and I was missing work for the appointment, but she's really good at what she does and is really professional and smart.

This place is pretty meh. I was trying to get an IUD, already had a consultation with my Primary Care Provider, and had to come in to Dr. Carlos' office for another consultation. I asked that they just call my PCP, who's in the SAME building, and save me a trip. They would not do that. So I took off work early to come in. I walk in and the receptionists are all sitting around on their cellphones. It took several moments for one of them to even notice I was there. Then, I had to provide my license, insurance card, and credit card for payment. In between the receptionist asking for one of these cards and me actually handing it to her, she stopped paying attention to me. So I'm sitting there, holding my cards out (this happened twice) while she's looking at her iPhone. After a 50 minute wait, I got in to see Dr. Carlos and she filled me in on basic IUD information, which I already got from my PCP. I had no questions and already knew the information, and she kept talking in a patronizing tone to me, as if I were a child. Lastly, she said it might be MONTHS before they can get the IUD that I need in stock. So i essentially said screw it, called Planned Parenthood, got it inserted that week, and had a wonderful experience there. Tldr: don't waste your time here - go to Planned Parenthood.

Dr. Carlos' staff was not friendly. I felt like I was a bother to them. Dr. Carlos is just way too fast. I felt rushed. Shes super fast and I forgot half the stuff I needed to discuss with her.

She's very straightforward, no small talk or fluff, which I don't mind, but could rub some people the wrong way. I appreciate the office because they will check with your insurance about coverage BEFORE scheduling you for a procedure, so you don't get trapped into paying for something you can't afford.

Dr. Carlos is kind, patient, understanding and gentle. I have traumatic issues and she listened without making me feel rushed. Her office staff was equally polite and generally treated me like I was important. They were careful in getting my information and I will definitely be returning.

As other patients said before, she looks as if she were in a hurry. She told me I would have the results within a week and had to call twice 3 weeks later to have an answer... poor service...

I felt very rushed during my appointment. I had a miscarriage and the doctor just asked me a few question, didn't give me a chance to tell her in details about everything that happened to me. She just wanted to jump right to conclusion and sent me out so that she could meet with the next person.

Ultimately - they got the job done. I felt very comfortable with the staff from the secretary to the CNA to the RN to Dr. Carlos. As a new patient, I had to repeat multiple answers to questions regarding patient history, which was an annoyance but completely expected. One thing I didn't prefer was the discussion I heard in the hallway when the door was closed. Repeatedly, I got to hear the information disclosed between the entire staff and probably the other patient in the neighboring room. Although I knew that their conversations were for my own benefit, but the judgement in their voices was slightly overwhelming.

I had to wait a little while to be seen (25 min), but then once I was called back to an exam room the appointment was very quick and efficient. I was able to be in and out in a reasonable amount of time so that I could get to work, but I didn't feel rushed. Dr. Carlos was very friendly, and so was the staff.

Dr. Carlos was wonderful! I felt very comfortable visiting her for my yearly gyno visit and will definitely be back next year. The wait was a little longer than I had hoped since I made an appointment (I waited about 40 minutes) and I had to get back to work. Other than that, my experience was great!

I really like the Dr, but the office staff could definitely use a little polish. No one checked me in when I signed in, though someone was sitting right there to do so. 25 mins later someone noticed, and said "No one checked you in?!?" Then started a long check-in process. When I said I could have been done with all this if I'd been checked in earlier, she said they didn't have a room for me anyway. Felt a bit irritated about the whole process, especially because a patient that came in after me went in before me, but honestly think it would have felt a lot better if the staff just handled it by having a little better people skills and being more diplomatic.
