I show up to the appointment and her front desk team informs me that they called to reschedule my appointment... they turned me away because I was a first-time patient with an after 5pm appointment, I shouldn't even have been allowedto schedule the appointment if that was the case . They were not accommodating at all... Very dismissive. They need to work on or update their communication.

Dr. Lachtchinina was very patient and thorough with all the medical concerns I’ve brought up during my visit! However, as other reviews have mentioned, the wait time was very long - I arrived 15 min early to my appointment yet wasstill seen an hour after my scheduled appointment time. I had no problem with this as I didn’t have anything pressing going on, but for anyone who has a schedule to keep I would hesitate to recommend based on the wait time. Otherwise I am satisfied with my visit overall.

Dr. Lachtchinchina is an awesome doctor. I told her that although I rarely ever get sick in the winter time, I got laryngitis twice this year. I was recommended specific multivitamins, and recieved a physical. I am very pleased with the doctor.

Great combination of friendliness and competence. She's nice and friendly, takes time to explain things in detail so you can understand what's going on, and isn't in a big rush to prescribe something and get you out the door. All-around good, confidence-inspiring experience.

First, I’d like to start off by pointing out the “long” wait time is mostly due to the fact that there is only one doctor is this small clinic. If you’re fine with maybe waiting a little longer than expected forhigh quality care, then I highly recommend Dr. Lachtchinina. She was incredibly involved and interested in what I came for and how I wanted to be treated. Her bedside manner is impeccable and her explanation of each diagnosis is incredibly helpful. I decided to give Dr. Lachtchinina a visit due to all of the positive reviews and I am so happy that I did!

My interaction with Dr. Lachtchinina was good. I have no complaints about that. However, my biggest complaint is the wait time! It really is unacceptable to keep people waiting for over an hour on average to be seen. Keep in mindmany people do not have the ability to dedicate an entire afternoon to what will be a less than 30-minute appointment.

Dr. Lachtchinina has been my PCP since 2012. She has always been accurate on her diagnosis and treatment, very caring to every aspect of good health. She listens attentively to the patients symptoms and always gives explanations useful to dealwith illness and medications. She will ask about all health aspects and supervises preventive and follow up tests. Very warm and caring personality, I am glad to recommend her without hesitation! Lynda R.

Dr. Lachtchinina found out what was wrong with me when nobody else could - not even the specialist I saw numerous times. She is really kind, friendly, highly intelligent, and very knowledgeable. You can tell that she stays on top ofnew developments in her medical field, yet she is easy to talk to. She explains things thoroughly and treats me as an individual. I feel as if she includes me in decision making and shows concern about all issues, no matter how insignificant they seem to be. I am VERY glad I found her!

I went for my first time in Sept to see this Dr. Lachtchinina with very high expectations. After waiting over 60 minutes I was seen by the doctor who went over my concerns briefly. The wait was horrible considering appointments arescheduled for a reason. It is ok to wait 20 minutes because a patient took extra time than anticipated. It is NOT ok to have someone wait 60+ past their appointment time. I feel compelled to write this review because I recommended my boyfriend to go see Dr. Lachtchinina hoping the wait time was a one time thing but he had the same experience. After waiting for over 45+ minutes my boyfriend had to leave without being seen because 45+ minutes past appointment time the doctor had not yet seen him. Dr. Lachtchinina you have a potential for a great practice but please do not dissuade patients by overbooking. It's not a pleasant experience to wait almost an hour after appointment time.
