The Doctor and the Nurse were perfect! my only issue was The receptionist needs to be fired, her attitude is so nasty! despite the things the women are going through, no one should have to deal with her disgusting attitude. Iwouldn't return because of her. She's the first person we see when we walk in meaning everyone there should be greeted with a warm welcome and a smile on their face. I even hear her talk to her coworker about patients. Unprofessional much?! Hire someone who has a bubbly personality, and who is happy with their job. Not Oscar the Grouch.

So far, the visit was satisfactory. The office is nicely set with modern and inviting decor. It was welcoming from the beginning with the receptionist, Kathy, who was also knowledgeable about some insurance issues I experienced. The team was thorough with examination and testing. They were responsive to my questions.

This office forces you to leave a card on file with them in the event that you cancel your appointment in violation of their cancellation policy. This is the first time I’ve ever had to do that. I also heard thereceptionist tell someone over the phone, presumably the doctor, that I am a Medicaid patient. I don’t know if this affected the care I received or not, but I would like to know why the type of insurance is more important than having it in the first place.

I arrived at 12:50 for a 1pm appointment and was not seen until 2:15. People who arrived after me were seen before me. When I did see the doctor, it was only for 5 minutes and she left before I wasable to ask any questions. The purpose of my visit was to ask questions about test results and I was not given the opportunity to ask any.

Shockingly awful experience. First time patient, waited 45 minutes to even be seen. Had blood taken for testing and was never contacted with results to this day. Doctor Kakossian was nice, but mentioned my ovary ultrasound showed signs of PCOSbut refused to elaborate, and brushed off my follow up questions, saying I was on BC so it didn’t matter. Office then failed to renew my BC prescription, and it took more than two calls a week to the office for more than a month to finally get a new prescription. However, this new prescription was only for ONE MONTH of refills. So I had to go through the entire calling and requesting a new prescription again, causing me to lapse in my medication. The receptionists are just incompetent and incapable of filling out a prescription correctly apparently. I am not going back to this doctor again.

This was a bizarre experience. I chose this place given they had a lot of availability when I really needed an appointment and were open on the weekend. To start: the lady at the front desk was beyond rude, and Inoticed that this happened to every person trying to check in. Her coworker actually jumped in to intervene when I was talking to her, and I’m thankful she did. Its not as if I expect her to even be friendly, but I don’t expect to be treated with such scorn. Anyway, they charge a lot up front. When I questioned the lady on this, (given I always just get charged my standard copay) she stated no follow up bills would come like most places did. They did by the way..... I get called back and my blood is taken in what I assume was a storage room. All their metal medical instruments are literally laying on a towel on the counter (after being cleaned perhaps?). This is NY, so I’ve seen some unique working spaces in drs office; however, I was beyond creeped out back in this room. It naturally led me to question thier cleanliness and organization as well. They then led me to a more traditional exam room, and I finally saw the doctor. Surprisingly, she was fine and seemed normal. Although I was told I would be contacted with my test results, I had to be the one to hunt them down several weeks later. Needless to say, I would never go back, and I wouldn’t recommend them to anyone.

I initially requested an appointment for my day off last Tuesday and without consulting with me; the office rescheduled me for a Monday at 10 am. When they called me to confirm I changed the date to 11/12 at 10 ambut was running late. I called the office and alerted them that I was going to be late. When I came in to check in, the rude Spanish receptionist told me you had a 10 o’clock and I replied yes I know but I called to say I was late. The nasty receptionist needs to be retrained she has zero customer service skills. This is how loose patients, I’m sure the doctor is lovely but please do yourself a favor and invest in a competent receptionist since that is the first face people come across when they come to your practice.

The office made me wait quite a while even after my paper work. They forgot to do my physical exam (height and weight) and tried to reschedule the night before my appointment. They were also wrong about my co pay on3 separate occasions and tried to charge me. I liked Dr. Kakossian though! She really knows what she’s doing and is quick and good at answering my questions.

The doctors takes my insurance (UHC) but is not in network, there is a difference that the office did not clarify. Would check your out of network insurance coverage prior to seeing the doctor as the office has billed my insurancean unusually high amount for my one visit that basically was a standard annual check up.

Although my experience at Dr. Kakossian's office was fine, I would highly discourage anyone from visiting her because of my experience following up with her. She wrote me a one year prescription which is essential to my health, and after twomonths, she stopped renewing the prescription. My pharmacy could not get ahold of her, and I called five different numbers for her office over twenty times. I was unable to leave a voicemail and no one called me back. I still have not heard back from them, and now will have to seek treatment from another professional in order to get the same prescription. This is highly unprofessional.

Absolutely phenomenal and knowledgeable doctor! I made my first appointment to Dr. Kakossian online through ZocDoc and I right away received a call from the office to confirm my insurance information. Therefore, before I saw Dr. Kakossianmy insurance information was confirmed and all set. I also received a call day before I had my appointment to confirm that I will be there. I came little early to complete all paper work and as soon as I finished I was told to change and wait for Dr. Kakossian. To be honest it was my first time seeing gynecologist and I was very nervous, shy and even scared. But as soon as I changed Dr. Kakossian came into the room and as soon as I started talking to her I felt more confident. She explained to me the whole process and that it will not be painful (my main concern). I really appreciate her approach and how she made me feel calm and confident. I strongly recommend Dr. Kakossin especially if it is your first time seeing gynecologist. I am very glad that I decided to see Dr. Kakossian and I strongly recommend her since she is very knowledgeable as a doctor and very nice as a parson. =)
