Went in for a sore throat and the visit wasn't really what I expected. There were issues with validating my valid insurance which held the appointment up for 30 minutes. While the nurses seemed quite nice, after their forth question aboutmy marital status, then birth control. I mentioned that I was a lesbian. Then I was asked if I had a vasectomy. Seriously, I was asked if as a woman if I had a vasectomy. It was uncomfortable and offensive. The doctor ordered a strep test via the nurse even before coming in to see me, which felt very impersonal. In the end the doctor saw me for 4 minutes max with nothing more in added value than what I came in with. Not a good experience.

Her nurse was unorganized and did all the work for her. The nurse asked me many questions and didn't even know what my very common medication was for. I was waiting for over 40 minutes and I even arrived early formy appointment. After I was already in the appointment, the nurse informed me she was only a general physician, and I told her that zocdoc had recommended her for skin issues (sometimes general doctors tend to be interested in a field even if they didn't do a residency so they tend to know a lot about it. When the doctor finally did show up, she spent maybe 5-10 minutes with me and was pretty rude and kurt with me and then rushed me out the door. When I mentioned the reason I'd come to see her, she asked me what I wanted her to do about it. She did no tests or anything. I also told her I didn't want antibiotics and she prescribed them anyway.

The office was very easy to locate and nice looking. However, the receptionist served as what I believe to be a nurse. She did not introduce herself, seemed very unknowledgeable. While I was in the room she googling about pregnancy hormones.In addition she burped in my face twice without saying excuse me. The doctor at first seemed to be very nice when she first came in the room, however when i began to ask questions she became aggravated and annoyed and told me to google my problem to get more information. I will be looking for another doctor and hopefully one who is patient and seems to care about your health.

In past appointments I have seen Dr. Govil's Physicians Assistant. She is lovely & takes plenty of time with each patient - making sure they feel heard. Today, I had my first visit with Dr. Govil. Although the office was completelyempty of other patients, the doctor spent less than 10 minutes with me, referring me to other doctors without doing any investigation of her own and only checking my breathing and looking in my throats for my "physical". For my next appointment, I may request the PA specifically. If she is not available, I will probably look for a new doctor.

ZocDoc reviews are definitely not accurate(I prefer Yelp). All of the doctors here are either 4 or 5 stars which certainly isn't right. One word to describe her practice is "Unprofessional", they checked my weight, temperature, and vitalsout in the open which I do not like, a little privacy would be nice. Staff and PA were ok, the PA constantly kept cutting my off when I would explain something, it seemed like she was rushing everything. Dr. Goval seems like a good doctor, I definitely wouldn't come back again though.

It's convenient to make an appointment online and usually you can see Dr. Govil on the same day or the day after. The office is nice and clean and I happen to work nearby the place. Those are the only reasonsI keep going back there even though I really shouldn't. Dr. Govil and her staff treat you as if they are doing you a huge favor by seeing you. They have just terrible bedside manners and I feel a sense of negativity at this place. The assistants who take your vital signs don't really care what your vital signs are. Sometimes they don't even take check your vitals and put random numbers in. Really, do you think consumers are that stupid? Dr. Govil doesn't care about your stories or your inputs. She isn't even listening when you speak half the time. I really WANT to refer my friends and family to this place because it's convenient and the office itself is really nice. But I can't get myself to do so because I don't want them to be treated like clueless children by Dr. Govil and her staff.

It was my first visit with Dr. Govil and her staff today. Since I'd filled out everything online it was a relatively smooth and quick visit. I found the office space to be organized and clean and her and the staffto be professional. In my case, I had some unwanted skin tags to be removed and she made it relatively painless experience. She was informative about the procedure and what I should anticipate. I would recommend her for both dermatology and general physician needs.

I am very disappointed in my service. I got a physical here and forgot to bring the form that my employer requires. I brought it back later and was told I would be charged even though I already paid for theservice. Not to mention the horrible cough that I have had for a month which I tried to get treated at this office but was turned away due to it simply being "allergies".
