Dr. Inna Yuryev-Golger was very kind and gentle. She was very thorough and sympathetic. The wait time was not astronomical, and I was out of the office in a timely fashion. I felt she listened and understood my plight. I highlyrecommend her and will frequent her office, as I feel very comfortable with her.

Dr is great but front office over schedules every appointment. You are NEVER seen at your appointment time no matter what part of the day you go. They lag at least an hour behind and seem to see no issue withthis. Make sure you have at least half a day to spend waiting and then being seen.

Dr. Inna was completely distracted each time I met with her, answering her phone and having a difficult time remembering my name. Additionally, she would speak over me when I was explaining symptoms or derive some behavior motivation that wascompletely off-base. Every time I left her office, I felt unheard and was not confident in my treatment plan. I would not recommend Dr. Inna as a professional and strongly urge you to find alternative care.

My visit was not bad I felt that I could have been given more of a chance to speak with her rather than feel as if I was possibly being judged or possibly not understood but for the most part shewas professional and wanted to do things by the book which I agreed with the right way either way comfortability is important to me and I feel that is the one thing that possibly was not fulfilled completely I've only had one visit so hopefully things are better in the future.

An excellent psychiatrist. I do not mind when she looks at her computer screen to type in current updates as this is protocol and always reengages with eye contact. I find it unfair to rate her badly because she was lookingat her keyboard when typing! From my point of view an outstanding pharmacologist. Always reminding me she is here for my benefit, and virtually always acting humbly. So much more goes into the treatment of a patient than what most patients comprehend. A highly respectable doctor who is clearly in the right field of work. Many thanks for her time, understanding, and sincere and authentic personality. A gem in the sea of doctors.

Waited very long. You should never wait in a Psychiatrist office. There was no eye contact with doctor. She read the questions off her computer and typed them in. Recommended meds right away with what I think not enough current infoIf you're looking for someone to write you a script. Then go here. If you're looking for someone to help you do not go here!

Really was looking for help with my anxiety and focusing problems. Her advice to me was to stop drinking coffee. Not very helpful to say the least. Definitely am going to someone else. She seems to be against prescriptions and ismore about holistic self help. Not really what I was looking for.

I was asked many questions so that I can receive a proper diagnosis. I cryed during the questions and she consoled me. The language barrier was there, but not difficult. She wanted to understand me and wanted to help me. Ifelt very comfortable and secure and safe. I believe I recieved a proper diagnosis. I was contimplating on seeing a Psychiatrist, but I am happy that I did. Overall she was very nice and concerned for me. I left feeling more knowledgeable of my myself. Very satisfying :)

I can't be too specific because of the review guidelines, but suffice it to say I 100% did not feel listened to, my input was not considered, and she arrived at an out of nowhere conclusion after reading me formulaic questionsoff her computer for about a half an hour. when I expressed concerns about this, they were dismissed, she talked over me & tried to push me into a plan I was not comfortable with. I left feeling vaguely bullied, confused, and demoralized, which is the opposite of how one should feel after seeing any kind of mental health professional.

I think Dr. Yuryev-Golger is committed to her patients. She is very professional, personable, kind and knowledgeable. She was also VERY attentive to my past history and really spent alot of time with me to get to know my issues andproblems before making recommendations on how to treat my condition. I thought that was great because I have been to other psychiatrists in the past who simply want to write a prescription and brush you off so they can see their next patient. I really appreciated Dr. Yuryev-Golger in how she made a genuine effort to evaluate the root core of my problems- something that no other psychiatrist has done. We had a wonderful session which was very productive and I look forward to my follow up appt in 1 month. Thank you very much for helping me.

Dr. Yuryev-Golger is a great psychiatrist. I have been a patient of her's for over 1 yr now am I am so glad I found her. She has really helped get my condition under control. I used to take alot ofdifferent medications but she stopped some of them which actually made me feel much better. She is very kind and genuine and devotes enough time in our sessions to make me feel that she truly understands what I am going through. She takes the time to get to know what I am feeling, and allows me to explain my feels even if I dont always know how to express them. I have had fluctuations in my mood and anxiety but ever since I have been her patient, she has been able to keep everything under control. Her staff is very friendly and helpful as well and I can say this from the many experiences I have had with them. I highly recommend Dr. Yuryev-Golger. She is great!

I've never written a Zocdoc review before, but my experience with Dr. Yuryev-Golger was so bad that I have to share it. I saw Dr. Yuryev-Golger about a month ago and didn't love her, but decided to see her again becausemaybe she could prescribe the right medication for me, which is all I really needed because I have a therapist already. The first time I saw her, one of the other people working in the office came in and interrupted the session twice, once to take a 20 from her and again a few minutes later to give her change. She was fine with it, it seemed routine to her. The second time I went, the front desk told me to just go straight back to her office. She wasn't in there, but someone in the office next door told me she'd be back and just to wait. I sat in there for 20 minutes, and her desk was like, unethically messy. There was a prescription pad unattended (!), and a bunch of other papers and books and just tons of stuff strewn all over. Finally I asked the person in the office next door to go find her because she apparently didn't know I was there. When she came in, she didn't remember me at all. She asked me to write my name down so she could look it up on the computer and refresh herself with my file with me sitting there. I think most doctors do that before the patient is sitting in the office. She couldn't remember why she had prescribed me what she did, even after looking at the file. Her phone rang twice during the session, and she answered both times. Doctors' phones always ring, and they NEVER answer during sessions! Especially when the patient is in the middle of struggling to explain (for the second time) the nature of their depression. I've never picked a fight with a doctor or anyone else in my life, and that's not an exaggeration, but I was really upset and distracted by this and told her I thought it was really rude for her to answer the phone during the session. Her response was "I'm not bothered by you being mad at me because I know I didn't do anything wrong." Seriously! She said that!! She also claimed I hadn't told her last time what other medications I was on. I know that I did, but even if I hadn't (and I let her know this), that would be really bad practice because you need to know all of the medications a patient is on before you prescribe them something (and she did prescribe the last time I saw her)! Also, I don't think this is clear on Zocdoc, but her first language is Russian, and her English is not great. For me, it's very important that a mental health provider understand what I'm saying when I'm talking about my experience, and she was unable to do that in English. I think it's partly a language barrier and partly just that she's not a good listener. She might be a good fit for some, but you have to be ok with constant interruptions and her thinking it's a manifestation of your mental illness when you get upset with her. I also recommend that you are fluent in Russian if you go to see her.

The doctor was absolutely lovely. It's unfortunate that I had to wait well over an hour before being seen, but she made up for it. She is professional, but friendly, and was almost motherly in her demeanor. We had a goodconversation and I left feeling like I got the help I needed.

Inna will give you the medicine you choose but she's not very polite. She was very condescending to me about my anxiety and told me to "stop being dramatic," which is like, super not comforting when I get the same stufffrom my family and finally got the courage to seek out medical care because I cant sleep and I cry in the bathroom at work every day. She argued with me about the baselessness of my phobias in a way that makes me feel like I did something wrong, and just generally made me feel bad about myself. I mentioned missing the services of my psychiatrist in Taiwan and she said "you're not in Taiwan anymore." Really unprofessional and rude. If you need medication and thats it she's good, but if you are sensitive and looking for a kind person to help you out, I super don't recommend.

She was very cold. She asked me questions, input my answers into her computer and barely made eye contact with me. I felt like she was submitting all of my symptoms into a program for a diagnosis instead of speaking meto see what is wrong. Her advice to help me sleep at night was " don't think about anything".

I found this doctor to be very knowledgable but rude, disrespectful & not at all compassionate or understanding. I went to her twice and was taken aback by her abrasive both times. Also I waited over an hour and a halfto see her because the front desk staff forgot I was there.

The front office staff needs to be more attentive of the waiting time of patients with appointments. I know that some patients need more time with the doctor than what the appointment book allows but they need to communicate to thedoctor that there are others waiting to be seen. Otherwise, Dr. Yuryev-Golger is great and extremely attentive and apologetic for the waiting time.
