Truly and honestly one of the greatest decisions I have ever made was to give this place a shot. I was in a dire search to find a gynecologist due to some personal issues (mind you, it's my first time evergoing to an OB-GYN, so I had no prior experience.) I found this place through a co-worker who raved about her FABULOUS experience and how much she loved this place, and so I then gave it a shot. Why not! I was a few minutes late because you have to take the Q23 bus towards Elmhurst, but I walked in and the ambiance was breath taking. SO NOT your typical mediocre/ehh clinics that are usually within Queens. Walking into this place was like walking into a spa-like entrance, very calm, very high tech, very NYC vibe. The receptionists was nice and situated me in right away. The bathroom, omg, it was so high tech with their Japanese toilet with heated seat lol. (can you tell I was just in complete awe? lol) Anyway, the ambiance, the amazing assistance, and the high tech machines are just a bonus added to THE amazing doctor Gohar. He was calm, straightforward, very detailed, and NON-judgmental! Everything that I was looking for in a gynecologist. He is a total opposite of what I had experienced with previous ob-gyns. Dr. Gohar does not push anything to you that you don't need or don't want to do, like I said, he is not judgmental at all. He lets YOU be in control and just guides you, that's what I prefer with my doctors. The wait took quite a long time due to the fact that the ultra sound technician was sick and so the doctor had to do it himself but I didn't mind because they check in on you and let's you be aware of the progress. Also the assistance were funny, they had me laughing! Give this place a shot, you won't regret it!

I look forward to many visits with Dr. Gohar. He is so nice and is very informative throughout the entire checkup. I honestly don't have one complaint which is really rare these days.

I have nothing but amazing things to say about Dr Gohar and his office staff. From the front desk receptionist whom was so nice and sweet, to the nurses and ultra sound techs, they were ALL sweet and made me feelvery comfortable. I am not a fan of male ob-gyn but that have changed upon meeting Dr Gohar, his bedside manner is amazing, he spoke to me and my partner very warmly and made us feel very comfortable. he went over my full medical history in great detail, never did I feel rushed. He was even nice enough to translate to my partner when he didn't fully understand everything. A+ for that. This is an amazing Dr and am so glad that I found him. An office is nothing without the front desk, and the medical assistants etc, and they all went above and beyond. Amazing staff. Thank you everyone for making me feel comfortable. Bejos

Dr. Gohar is a true professional. This is my first pregnancy and from the moment he walked into the examination room I felt very comfortable with him. He is friendly, has excellent bedside manner, is very thorough in his examination, andtakes the time to sit with you and go over everything you need to know and answer questions. He does not rush. The office is very clean and it is also very sleek and modern. The nurses were all very friendly and helpful. The office manager actually took the time to review my insurance plan the day that I booked my first appointment and called to follow up with me to confirm that they accepted my insurance and laid out all the details with my deductible and what each visit would cost me until my deductible was met. I've actually never had any doctor experience that was this transparent, and it was a breath of fresh air. I'm going to be spending a lot of time with Dr. Gohar and his staff in the next few months, and I know I made the right decision. I would highly recommend them.
