Verified Patient Reviews
She is super nice and professional. Highly recommended! I already introduce her to my friends.
The wait was absurd. Several people came in with appointments after mine and were seen and went home. I waited patiently for an hour and half and finally asked if I could come back and was told they were waiting on my insurance verification. So I called my insurance myself, spoke to someone right away and they offered to speak to them to verify and then suddenly the story changed- they were able to verify. Then the staff acted like they were annoyed with ME. Poorly handled. Dr Jaffe herself was quite pleasant to talk to and once I finally got to see her the visit quick and enjoyable.
Julia was great - nice, normal, quick, and to the point!
Really kind, nice doctor. She was very attentive and didn't make me feel stupid about any questions I asked. She just felt like a regular person who also happened to be a great doctor.
This was my first time to the office. I was seen on time and the appointment was efficient and comprehensive-a hard balance to strike. Dr. Jaffe answered all my many questions and I would definitely recommend her.
I returned to a second appointment for a concern and I really felt comfortable and understood by her. I’m planning to stick with her.
Dr. Jaffe was great and very efficient yet conversational. However, ended up having to wait at the office for an hour and 15 min. Would not recommend this location for that reason, but maybe it'd be better if it's not the first visit
Dr. Jaffe is no-nonsense and super practical. Her professionalism and bedside manner was much appreciated. She's got a great team surrounding her as well.
She is straight to the point and very matter of fact. She won’t sugar coat things but she will take excellent care of you.
If you want to be in and out quick, this is the place to go. Dr. Jaffe and the rest of the staff were really nice, and the place is very clean and nicely designed. Dr. Jaffe herself was straightforward with me, and also explained other options if I needed. And the staff was nice enough to let me know how the billing worked and how the claims would show up. If you’re new, it’s best to go in very early because they need to take your info. I ended up waiting for 45-60 minutes because my insurance didn’t seem to initially cover, so if you have a problem with waiting, go early.
Friendly and efficient. Felt slightly rushed, but overall a good experience.
Julia Jaffe was very professional and good for someone who just wants to get in and out with no fluff. Perfect for a person who loves getting haircuts from people who don't say a word and just know what they are doing and get it done well. The visit was quick and done before I knew it. I, personally (since I was nervous), would have liked someone to be a little more light hearted and joke around to loosen the tension, but that is totally preference. The wait/secretaries were probably the part I would give a low rating to. The information was just mumbled to me, the forms not super clear, no estimate for how long the wait would be, and it seemed like the employees were not happy to be working there. And I waited over an hour after my appointment time to get put into a room, to then wait longer. I understand that having to smile at every customer and repeat the same thing for hours is not fun, but I more hope the employees are treated well and enjoy their job to a degree. All in all, not a bad visit, but hope this helps other when deciding if its a good fit!
Dr. Jaffe is a professional Physician with good bedside manner, who was helping me find the best options for my health. I would recommend her to anyone needing a new OBGYN.
Dr Julia Jaffe was very professional and helpful. I highly recommend. She answered all my questions and provided me with great recommendations in every area I asked her about. Also, time of visit was great, In and out but definitely not rushed. Highly recommend!
Dr Jaffe was very friendly and knowledgeable. She went above and beyond explaining each option as well as telling me about an IUD that is buy one get the second free, which could mean 10-14 years of birth control. She wasn't worried about trying to make me come in for any unnecessary visits and calmed all my fears about my nexplanon removal I was very nervous and she even waited just so my boyfriend could be there in time since I'm very squeamish. That was amazing And the nurse was also amazing and had nexplanon twice with her removal a week ago and she showed me what the healing would look like potentially and both her experiences. I will definitely be going to them
A caring and thorough Dr. She answers all questions and doesnt make you feel rushed. Highly recommend!
Dr. Jaffe is great! She is super informative and patient.
I think my appt overall went well. I wasn't thrilled about the service I received - mostly because I felt the DR was dismissive or short when I asked a question or she gave me an answer. But she was attentive to my concerns, didn't make me wait, and was open to me coming back. The office wait was 10-15 mins - not including the time I took to fill out paperwork (so if you're a new patient come before your appt time to avoid a set back).
Excellent quick and easy visit!
The practice lost my labs!!!! I have never had this happen before. Dr Jaffe then said I come could come in to leave a sample again and when I said I would not pay the co-pay again for their mistake, she said call billing very abruptly. I will not be coming back here and recommend others steer clear.
I would suggest getting to the office early if it's your first visit as there was a bit of a wait, but the overall experience with Dr. Jaffe was wonderful.
My visit with Dr. Jaffe was great she made me feel comfortable and she returns calls herself. I will be going to her until I can't anymore.
Jaffe and her medical staff were 100%, but the front desk experience was pretty offputting.
My appointment started about 20 minutes after the scheduled time, but only because I was the first appointment of the day, and they needed some time to set up. Other than that, I highly recommend this office and Dr. Jaffe, the nurses were very helpful and friendly, and Dr. Jaffe took the time to talk me through different birth control options, which I appreciated.
Great doctor, to the point and informative. I? did wait 45 minutes and the desk ladies were a little brash. They said they did not receive my insurance ID number ahead of time, though I? sent it through ZocDoc and also called them 30 minutes before to give it again.... but the visit was positive.
She was so kind and friendly and really eased my fears.
She’s great! Very personable, has great bedside manner. The other staff members were kind, polite, made me feel at ease.
Only had to wait because they were verifying my insurance. Otherwise was in right away after it was verified. Everything was great and plan on going back to her.
She’s amazing. Very professional and knowledgeable and made me feel extremely comfortable.
Dr. Jaffe was great!
She was wonderful. Personable and easy to talk to. She offered clear answers and created a comfortable and open environment in which to have delicate conversations and questions. She also seemed to genuinely care about her patients.
Doctor was great, however the office told me that they had not received my insurance information ahead of time (although it was sent through Zoc Doc) and that I would have to wait up to 45 minutes for my insurance to be cleared. I was later to work than expected since I was not seen for over an hour upon arriving to the office.
She was great, personable and to the point.
She was very friendly and she helped and talk with me about my situation very professional good
Very professional, very trustworthy.
Return customer! Dr. Jaffe remains caring, considerate, and seemed genuinely interested in my well-being. Wait time to get in took about 30 minutes--but I was the first appointment, and once I was with someone everything from there was very speedy.
She did a great job on the procedure itself, but when I had my IUD put in she just left afterwards so I could change and the nurse had to find me later on the floor, unable to move from pain and about to vomit/pass out. The garbage I had to vomit in had bloody tissues in it, right near the top, I'm fairly certain it was my own blood but that really should be in the biohazard bin shouldn't it? Definitely didn't help me feel less woozy. I was warned the procedure would be painful but I had to find out later either from the nurses or online to eat first, take pain killers ahead of time, use the bathroom first and to make sure you have a ride home etc. It felt really humiliating and like I was being really dramatic. To hear that fainting, vomiting, diarrhea etc happen sometimes would've made me more prepared and way less embarrassed. I read about other people having a nurse stay with them right after to make sure they were ok and I would've really liked that. A nurse was with me eventually and was really nice about it.
Very attentive, and patient. Excellent doctor! Highly recommend.
So rude and not caring. Was aggressive and tried to make me feel dumb. She mood swings, not professional.
Really liked my appointment with Dr. Jaffe. She's extremely conversational, definitely puts you at ease & is very knowledgable without being condescending.
Julia Jaffe was professional and very easy to talk to. Refreshing.
Incredibly knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Made me feel comfortable as did the other physicians assisting and doing bloodwork.
I always love seeing Dr. Jaffe - super friendly, helpful, and answered all of my questions about the form of b.c. that I wanted.
She was very personable and informative. She took the time to answer all my questions and made sure I was incredibly comfortable during the exam. The wait was minimal in the office and everything was very clean. Highly recommend
She was amazing! Very easy to talk to. Informative and kind.
Best doctor I've ever been to!
She was great! I was very nervous and had a lot of questions. She was very friendly and down to earth & answered all my questions . I never felt rushed. Overall great experience! I highly recommend!
Dr. Jaffe was very warm and kind, very understanding, and helpful. Overall, the staff was friendly and polite and the rooms were clean.
Julia Jaffe is lovely, so nice and helpful and made me feel totally at ease. I would recommend her to anyone.
I enjoyed my visit with Dr. Jaffe. She was effective and very thorough. I liked that she was young and approachable. Sometimes with OBGYN appointments it's easy to feel uncomfortable sharing personal information, but she made me feel comfortable and was very understanding. I like that she came in the room to meet me first before giving me time to get ready for the exam. It made things more personal and made me feel more open to talking about why I was there. I would recommend.
She's very informative but seems to act as though it's painful for you to be there, I felt this more so with a follow up appointment where I felt really rushed. Also particularly frustrating when you have an 8am appointment and you see the doctor walk in at 8.15. Hardly patient oriented.
Long wait (an hour and a half), and the front desk assistants unfortunately were not very friendly.
The wait was 50 minutes in the morning - not ok!! The waiting room and facilities/rooms in general aren't very nice. There are a lot better OB/Gyn places in the city. This place is good cause it's easy to get an appointment, but I will not be going here again.
Doctor was fine. She answered questions and spent a bit of time explaining what could be the issue, which I appreciated. Front desk staff are not the warmest, and definitely could improve in reception.
Excellent bedside manner, very pleasant and friendly. Made me relax and was very knowledgeable. Highly recommend.
Dr. Jaffa is a friendly doctor who is attentive to her patients and extremely helpful.
Dr. Jaffe is awesome. I love her. Straight forward, quick.
I had a really good experience- I was seen right away, Dr. Jaffe was very nice and helpful and took time to talk with me.
Dr. Julia was great! She was knowledgeable and caring. I would see her again.
Dr. Jaffe was excellent - explained everything, answered my questions, and had a wonderful bedside manner. I am so happy I found this office!
She was very nice and answered all of my questions.
Julia was awesome, easy to talk to
I loved Dr. Jaffe! Super friendly and eased a lot of my worries. Would reccomend her to any of my girlfriends :)
My experience with Dr. Jaffe herself was fine - pretty standard. Unfortunately, I was not seen my anyone until 12 (my appointment was at 11) - and this was after I came in early to do my paperwork. While I would've thought there was some kind of emergency, the doctor informed me that they typically get behind during the lunch hours. If that's the case I suggest they don't schedule patients during these hours considering we all have lives and also need a lunch break.
Dr. Jaffe was very nice! While the appointment felt a bit rushed, and the wait was almost 1.5 hours, I would go back.
Didn't have to wait more than 5 minutes and Dr. Jaffe was awesome! She listened to my needs and took time to answer all my questions - even if they didn't directly apply to that day's appointment. She also let me add on a procedure I didn't have scheduled for that day. Really happy with her, the office, and overall experience.
She was great! Friendly and professional at the same time.
Dr. Jaffe was brusk and seemed to do nothing more than a cursory check of me - despite concerns.
Waited over an hour to be seen and the visit felt very rushed.
Dr Jaffe was very professional and helpful while still making me feel completely at ease. I'm a little old to be going to the OBGYN for the first time but she talked me through the basics and alleviated my fears
Doctor didn't show any condideration about the issue I had.
The doctor was nice and professional but overall the visit was quick and felt rushed and I don't think I got all the information that I needed. Had to wait close to an hour before my appointment started and found that the front desk staff was curt and somewhat condescending.
julia jaffe was efficient and very nice. i would Definitely recommend her! the appt was hurried, but i think she was trying to help me get out of there asap. which makes sense considering i waited an hour and half. i signed in at 3:15p for a 3:30p appt. i didn't actually get called back and see the doctor until 4:40p. julia apologized for the wait and i appreciated that and the receptionists were very nice. one Big con was the women who took my blood pressure and weight. no bed side manner, she actually seemed annoyed to have to deal with me. then i heard her tell dr. julia jaffe that i had left the waiting room and that is why i wasn't in sooner - which was wrong and some what deplorable. she barely looked around the room i was the only one in the whole room at this point, sitting next to their one plant in the office just right of the reception desk. i hadn't moved in over an hour. i wouldn't recommend her or this office if you are on any kind of time constraint.
I really liked Dr. Jaffe. She was smart, sympathtic and worked on an action plan for my issues. I highly recommend her.
I dont notmally write reviews, while the visit in itself was not horrible. I had an appointmebt yeterday was told ny medication would br sent to the pharmacy, called the office spoke to the doctor spoke to the front desk, no one has sent my prescription. Called about 5 times was put on hold for about 10-30 mins each time. Only to be given an excuse about my medication each and every single time. While writing this review im actually still waiting for someone to send my prescription... i thought all it takes is someone going on the PC and sending it to the pharmacy.. did not know it was such a tedious task...
Very productive and helpful.
Quick, courteous, professional--it was exactly what a doctor's appointment should be like. Dr. Jaffe explained everything she was doing and was very polite. Between her and the rest of the staff I felt welcome and comfortable and would be absolutely willing to come back for another appointment, should the need arise.
She was very informative and pleasant! The office is very clean and I didn't wait long.
I needed an asap appointment before heading out of town and grabbed the time slot thru zoc doc. The office was very busy, but everyone was professional and I was seen a few mins after filling out the new patient paperwork. They called in the prescription a little later than I was told, but not the end of the world considering how many patients they had that day.
Dr. Jaffe was helpful and easy to talk to!
My visit with Dr. Jaffe was great. She spent an unhurried while with me, and was patient with my slew of questions and concerns. I would definitely recommend her practice and will continue to frequent Gramercy Gynecology.
I was surprised by how kind, helpful, and patient everyone at this office was from the front desk to Dr. Jaffe. I don't like going to the doctors and especially the OB/GYN, but this visit really changed my mind. I felt comfortable, respected, and heard.
Pleasant and to the point!
