This is my 3rd or 4th time seeing Inessa, she is always so great. She does not make me uncomfortable at all which makes it even easier to tell her what is wrong. Just awesome!

Very personable and efficient practitioner. Was in and out of the office in a matter of 30 minutes (from check-in to finish). Answered my questions in a thoughtful manner and didn't pressure me to get expensive blood work or other unnecessary procedures done.

I've been seeing Dr. Krel for my primary care for 2 years. My needs require a monthly in person visit and I've never had a negative experience. I'm always seen right away, I never feel rushed once I'm in the roomwith her and the office communicates well with my pharmacy. I highly recommend!

I’ve seen Inessa seven times and she is the only medical practitioner I truly care about returning to. Well educated and up to date on medicine beyond what I’ve experienced with other FNPs and even MDs. She is extremely kind, compassionate,and cares about her patients. She always remembers our last visits and is so helpful. She will always ask if you have questions and take the time to explain anything. She manages my mental health medication better than any phsyciatrist I’ve been to (and bills at a PCP rate), always addresses my concerns, and provides me with several options. I never feel that she is pushing one treatment option on me, but rather that she explains all possibilities, pros/cons, partners with me to create the best medical plan for me, and closely monitors mental and physical symptoms. She is very proactive and each visit is completely comprehensive - I feel fully comfortable trusting her with my care. For simple medication issues, she always offers to let me call in, as opposed to billing an appointment and requiring my time. When I had a brief uninsured period, she told me to call in if I needed anything and assured me she would still help me out over the phone. She truly brightens my day, and I always walk out of her office with the peace of mind that I am actually receiving help. I feel prepared knowing that I have an intelligent practitioner to work with me towards better health. Despite this being a small office with a limited administrative capacity, the doctors do as much as they can to help out and are often able to save you a more expensive trip to a specialist. They embody the future of primary care practices, which can help a lot of low-income patients by integrating more expansive services into their practices. I’ll always check in with this office before seeing a specialist, and there’s no bullshit for the sake of profit; they will tell you before the visit if they can do something over the phone (simple refills, medication adjustments) and save you a visit, or if you’d be better off seeing a specialist for the problem you’ve described. Plus, you can generally book same day appointments via zocdoc. Also, unlike most doctor’s offices in the city, there is almost never a wait time (and never more than 15 minutes), no shuffling of patients, and no rushing even if you’re the last appointment of the day. I’ve also seen Dr. Eidgah when I’ve been physically sick and Inessa is out, and he is equally fantastic. Both kind, qualified, patient professsionals - what an ideal and pleasant doctor’s visit should entail.

Inessa is super helpful. She is straight up and genuine. I do have to agree with the other reviewers; The support staff could be more professional. They didn’t acknowledge me at check in until they finished their personal conversations, andwhen they did speak up, they were cold- like I was interrupting them. One woman was sick with a runny nose, and she continued sniffing and wiping mucus off of her nose without cleaning her hands. All while performing vitals.

On the second visit for the same condition, Ms. Krel made an error in the prescription. When the pharmacist tried to contact the office, they were told Ms. Krel had left for the day. I had to personally take the prescriptionback to the office for the supervising physician to rewrite. This was a big nuisance.

Visit itself was great, was in and out in 20 minutes. Issues occurred later when 1) the receptionist gave me attitude for requesting a different prescription and then later to send the prescription to a different pharmacy and 2) my labresults did not include results for all of the tests requested because of negligence on their part.

The receptionists could be nicer and more approachable and the nurse who sees you before the doctor should introduce herself to you before sticking a needle in your arm. I had to ask her for her name. However, Inessa is thebest. Very attentive, listens to understand, and you feel as though she takes you seriously.

The visit was fantastic! I had a great experience seeing Inessa. She was great at explaining everything and also asked if I had any concerns or issues. The visit was very quick, and the MA/nurse Carmen was amazing. I've always hadissues with blood draws, and she made sure I was comfortable and monitored my status while she was performing it. Thank you so much! I'm glad I finally found a new primary care doctor who I will return to!

Inessa was kind and polite like always. However, the front desk staffs made me feel unwelcome. Both ladies didn’t acknowledge me when I came in and walked up to the window until after about a minute. When they did acknowledge meand check me in, they both seemed really annoyed that I was there. I was tempted to tell them “sorry that my presence caused you to have to do your jobs.”

It was one of the most painless appointments I've ever had. I went in for an annual physical and it was very pleasant. I filled out my paperwork and was seen within 5 minutes. Blood work was extremely fast and didn'thurt at all. Dr. Krel was super sweet. She asked a few questions, checked my vitals and I was out in under 30 minutes.

She took little time to see me and I felt I was bothering her by asking a bunch of questions about my condition. When I went to pick up my medicine the pharmacist told me there is an off brand thatdoes exactly the same as the medicine she prescribed me but for half the price. I had to call back and wait another day to get the different medicine since the office had to process the change. Very frustrating as I had planned to take the medicine that day if the doctor had not prescribed overpriced medicine.
