I immediately felt comfortable with Dr. Kornafel and loved her humor and candid talk without judgment. Also being in my mid-thirties, she had a very informative and honest conversation abt fertility options and risks associated with waiting longer and took the time to explain what she saw in the ultrasound so that I could understand my own body. I highly recommend her and will definitely keep her as my permanent ob gyn and have already recommended someone else to her!

Oh my god I love Kathleen Kornafel and I never thought I'd say those words about a Gynecologist ever. I learned about Dr. Kornafel via zocdoc, but was still unsure if I would have a good appointment since I've found other doctors through zocdoc and have been less than thrilled. Dr. Kornafel blew me away. (And I promise this is a legit review, this isn't some paid thing. I'm just gushing with happiness over here so let me have my moment.) So, some backstory, I had been to another Gynecologist out here in LA and I was told that I might have HPV, but he didn't give me any insight whatsoever to what that meant. He just said I might have HPV and that I would need to do some follow up tests in a few months. And that was it. I was horrified and felt like I was so stupid for having HPV. I felt like I was probably going to die, etc. etc. And I told this to Dr. Kornafel and she was SO WONDERFUL about explaining to me what the heck HPV is and what HPV means for me. She even brought out a book on it (which I've unfortunately forgot the name of) and drew me diagrams of how HPV effects the cervix & cells within you. Dr. Kornafel was so amazing during the exam, as well. She was great at making me feel at ease, making jokes and telling interesting stories. She explained clearly what she was doing and even showed me my eggs on that ultrasound machine. She was thorough with all of my options and made me feel like a person which is just so important when you're getting a gynecological exam! I think she definitely tells you how it is, but she tells you also all of your options and makes her points clear. (I'm saying this only because I see some other reviews on here that say she's blunt. But I think you have to be blunt when it comes to your vaginal health. Our society doesn't talk nearly enough about vaginal health, still, so Kathleen Kornafel is a breath of fresh air during these crazy times.) Any way, Kathleen is the best. And I definitely recommend her to all!

Dr. Kornafel is great! She is very straightforward and professional. Her staff is the only reason I hesitate to recommend her to anyone. They are uncoordinated, lack knowledge and are uncommunicative. For example, they called me for my follow up appointment and told me to come in 10 minutes early for first time patient paperwork. I am still waiting on a call to schedule a surgery (it has been more than 24 hours after they told me they would call).

She's very, very thorough. She's very blunt but you definitely want that in a doctor. Wait times can be long but that's because she takes time to really address every patient's needs. She made me feel incredibly comfortable through the whole appointment. If I could have her as my primary care doctor, I would in a heartbeat!

While Dr. Kornafel seems like a good doctor, I felt that she was unprofessional. She talked about her yelp review and herself during my appointment, rather than listening or asking about me. In addition, her office billed my insurance incorrectly and never returned my calls to fix their billing mistakes. They actually billed my parents insurance, which I did not even provide information for and had not been on for a year. I was overall disappointed with the professionalism of this office and I will not be returning.

I was blown away by my visit to Dr. Kornafel's office!! I avoid these types of doctor appointments because they are uncomfortable. I have been wanting an IUD so I decided to suck it up and found her on Zoc Doc. The office is quaint and very homey. The office staff were so kind and made small talk with me while I waited. The woman who took my blood pressure was very lovely as well. I met in an office with Dr. Kornafel and discussed the IUD. Not only did she explain my options but drew diagrams and explained absolutely everything to me! I felt like I was her only patient and we had just met. We went into the exam room. The part I was dreading. She came in and started cracking jokes and had small talk with me through the whole exam. I kept waiting for the really bad or uncomfortable part but it never happened! I can't believe I am saying this but I am literally looking forward to my next appointment with Dr. Kornafel. She is amazing.

While I did find Dr. Kornafel to be overall a nice person and means well, I did find that several topics of discussion were not appropriate, such as religion, politics, etc. I personally wasn't offended, but she wouldn't have known until it was too late since she hardly skirted around her views on religion and politics. She lucked out that we shared similar views, but it still made me uncomfortable. Also the office looks extremely outdated and I wasn't given a way to handle the cup I had to pee in so that it would be clean when I handed it over. The whole experience was very awkward for me. I move a lot and therefore I've been to several gyno's in my life and this by far was the most uncomfortable experience.

The most thorough GYN I've gone to. Gives lots of info and makes sure to take her time with her patients. I always leave feeling as though I was heard and learned something about taking the time to care for my health. Makes you feel like you have a relationship with her about being preventative with your health and as if you have a teammate looking out for you.

Doctor Kornafel is a rock star. Really cool, easy going, sweet, humorous and professional. I am terrified of doctors and feel embarrassed of how scared I was when I came in. Definitely going to come back again and feel much less nervous. Everyone who works there was very sweet and professional as well.
