Verified Patient Reviews
The front office was a bit disorganized in enrolling me in their system, but they remained friendly. Ms. Krel however was quite attentive and totally responsive through my meeting with her. Her warmth was infectious.
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, and when 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.
She was wonderful! Super quick and efficient, incredibly respectful and listened to everything I had to say. Would highly recommend Inessa!
She was very nice and professional.
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 prescription back to the office for the supervising physician to rewrite. This was a big nuisance.
She was wonderful. Very thorough, patient, kind, and knowledgeable.
I booked the appointment for same day. The office contacted me in advance to let me know they are a primary care team, and not strictly speaking dermatologists. I took the appointment anyway, and they were able to diagnose and treat my infected finger.
Very nice and professional
Quick and efficient with out feeling like I was rushed out. They were very thorough in explaining what they were doing. Also they were very good at making sure to give me time to bring up any issues I may have had.
My check in was fast and easy and Inessa was great and really nice. I'd go back the next time I'm not feeling well.
This is a great doctors office. I highly recommend—Dr. Krel is so professional and friendly and is straight to the point with diagnoses.
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 lab results did not include results for all of the tests requested because of negligence on their part.
Fast, but not rushed, everyone from receptionist to nurse to Inessa were friendly and nice all around, clean office. Totally pleasant doctor going experience.
It was very pleasant.
Inessa was friendly and knowledgable. However, I still did not get my urine test results! My visit was on December 4th. Today is December 18th! cheers.
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 the best. Very attentive, listens to understand, and you feel as though she takes you seriously.
I really loved the atmosphere of this office. The stuff are very friendly and helpful. Dr. Krel is kind, smart and professional. Highly recommended!
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 had issues 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 is great! She is so kind, calm, and makes me feel very comfortable. She is attentive and a great listener.
As always, I had a great visit with Inessa Krel. She was friendly and great bedside manner. She listen to all my concerns, checked me out and provided treatment. I 100% recommend her to anyone looking for a PCP.
My visit went really well. Though the wait time was a little longer than expected, inessa Krel was very professional and caring. I would definitely recommend!
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 me and 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.”
Knowledgable and understanding. I felt taken care of with Inessa!
This NP was thorough in her assessment and had a great bedside manner. She didn't rush me and spent all the time with me that I wanted. I would see her again!
Quick visit, as seamless and painless as you'd expect from a physical. I did have to wait about 10-15 minutes later than my appointment time, but after that it was super smooth and easy. Would recommend!
She is great. Very nice and helpful.
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't hurt at all. Dr. Krel was super sweet. She asked a few questions, checked my vitals and I was out in under 30 minutes.
Very sweet and helpful!
It was ok, I was went in for a consultation for acne and she was not very knowledgeable and wanted to put me on an antibiotic for up to six months. It was not very helpful. I guess I should not have gone to a nurse practitioner for such issues.
Nice and easy.
I have seen Inessa once before, and both times were amazing. She is extremely helpful and was able to help me clear up acne within my first visit. Beyond that, everyone in the office is very friendly and attentive. Definitely going to continue to see her as needed :)
Inessa is very friendly, a good listener, and obviously wants the best for her patients. I would highly recommend her!
Inessa was great. She reviewed my note beforehand so was very well prepared when I was seen. Everything was quick and efficient and she gave me options about my treatment. Her office was a little hard to find, but once I found it, it was one of the smoothest apts I've had.
Inessa was super helpful and nice. The office was clean and the staff was very friendly and welcoming. I was seen almost immediately with no problems :)
Inessa was absolutely lovely and very quick. It did take me a little longer to get to see her since it was my first time there ( closer to 30mins start to finish) but other patients got in and out of there within 15 minutes!
Inessa Krel is personable, friendly, and professional. Her history and physical exam were very comprehensive and pertinent. I couldn't have asked for a better experience! She was empathetic, caring and answered all of my questions with patience. The facility is clean, bright, & spacious. The staff are very professional and helpful.
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 that does 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.
Didn't feel like it was a real physical.
Inessa Krel was fantastic, but the office staff are TERRIBLE. They overcharged me for my visit and refused to refund me.
Inessa was great! She was attentive and very thorough. Inessa took the time to describe my problem and how she would treat it. She prescribed only the meds that were absolutely necessary when performing test in her office. I was even able to call her after the visit with a question and she was very accomodating over the phone. The office staff were friendly and helped me figure out my insurance. Highly recommended!
Nurse Krel did not inspire confidence. She didn't take all my vital signs; she skipped taking my temperature even though I was exhibiting many signs of a fever and later found out I was running 103. She gave me antibiotics without running the adequate tests, which I found irresponsible. I wouldn't recommend.
Inessa was kind and efficient. I couldn't get an appointment with my usual provider this week, and was glad to be seen quickly. Office was clean and nice. Will likely return!
Absolutely horrible! Never sent over my blood-work results. Forgot to test for half of the relevant things. No call or explanation of the test/action items for what was abnormally low. Just a plain PDF.... A complete waist of time.
Reception staff as well as Dr are friendly and efficient.
Inessa is very intelligent and always helpful!
super sweet - love her and this office! so quick!
Inessa is fast, knowledgeable and friendly. I would highly recommend her for any general medical needs.
Dr Krel was very nice and easy to talk to. She wasn't able to help me with my issue, however she refered me to another doctor, which was very helpful! I will absolutly consider going back to her for any general needs.
Inessa Krel is excellent and very supportive. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. She exceeded my expectations. She was empathetic, caring and answered all of my questions with patience. Staff was excellent. The office is going through renovations it looks very welcoming and modern. I recommend this practice.
Always a great, quick, seamless experience.
Went for an annual physical - service was relatively quick and was seen without waiting for too long. Inessa was nice but can't comment too much about services since my physical was very quick - I was in and out within 20 minutes, which is great, but also I feel that the visit could have been more thorough.
I felt so comfortable with her, She is super informative and asked the right questions. So pleasant and professional. The staff is very friendly. The office is going through renovations and it's a big improvement. Highly recommended!!!!!!
Being that this was my first visit she was very nic pleasant and professional also showed interest in my concerns about my Health. I would definitely recommend her.
The office was kind of a mess which made me nervous to be there. Usually doctors offices are organized and feel quite sanitary. Inessa Krel was nice but seemed rushed. Didn't go into much detail on my medical history or what I was there for.
Inessa Krel was great. My appointment was quick and easy. The staff was able to get through my appointment in less than twenty minutes and I had my prescription right away.
Inessa Krel is personable, friendly, and professional. She cares about my well being, and I feel comfortable discussing whatever issues I have. I feel confident that she will give me an honest and reliable answer. The office was clean and the staff was very helpful. I highly recommend this office.
Inessa was nice enough, but the office itself seemed very cluttered and not so clean. There was equipment sitting on the ground unplugged and needles (in sealed bags) were scattered around the room. To be fair, there was a sign that said they were under construction, but I didn't see any construction - only things in disarray. I was at the office about 1 hour, but only talked with Inessa for 5 minutes, then I was referred to radiology for xrays and that kept me there for another hour. 2 hours total was way too long.
I saw Dr. Krel for an annual physical, and she was great! The appointment was quick but thorough, which is exactly what I want when it comes to annual physicals. She was easy to talk to, answered all of my questions, and I felt completely welcomed as a first-time patient in her office. Will definitely be returning to Dr. Krel!
She was very pleasant, although the visit was very short--the paperwork beforehand took far longer than the visit itself. Very helpful, though.
Inessa is very friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. I would highly recommend her to anyone for their general medical needs.
Very good experience overall, can highly recommend Inessa. Needed to see someone quickly as I was feeling very sick and my usual primary care doctor had no availability. Found Inessa on zocdoc and got an appointment two hours later. Once there I waited less than five minutes for my appointment, all the paperwork was done on an ipad (rather than filling out gazillions of pages and repeating your name and social 20x in the process). Inessa was very friendly, explained all the procedures in detail and answered all my questions.
she is so sweet and real with you! Love her totally reccomend
She's a wonderful person, I felt really comfortable talking with her! Very professional! Her front desk was very friendly as well, and the office runs efficiently and smoothly. My appointment with Inessa Krel NP was by far the best experience I have ever had with the medical profession. She was courteous, thorough, professional and friendly, answering every question and putting any concern to rest. She was efficient without being rushed, which I certainly appreciated. As long as I'm in this area, I will have her as my primary.
She was so patient and understanding! Hard to find these days. Will definitely recommend her to others.
I went for an annual physical and it was a great visit with Ineesa. She was very nice and I felt very comfortable with her in that she took her time examining me. The staff is also very friendly and I didn't have to wait at all. Highly recommended.
She was so quick and very helpful!
Inessa was amazing! She was attentive, empathetic and very understanding. She took the time to listen to all my concerns and addressed them. She was very friendly and easy to talk to. I never felt rushed! Will def. go back and I will recommend her to all my friends.
Despite being attended to immediately...she took a total of 5 minutes to diagnose me. Didn't explain anything about what she was observing to me and sent me away with Advil as the cure to my excruciating sore throat and saying I had an upper respiratory infection after checking my breathing for maybe 2 seconds. Never have I been rushed out of a doctor's office in this manner. I was in so much pain I was crying and she almost seemed annoyed by this.
She was great! I was seen right away. Made me feel very comfortable. Inessa listened to health issues with patience and concern. Great bedside manner, I highly recommend her!
