Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Kornafel is very honest and very informative. I don’t appreciate doctors that sugarcoat things, especially when it regards to my health! Love her straightforwardness! She always makes me feel comfortable. I recommend her to my lady friends and lady female members.
I am not one to write reviews but I felt obligated to do so for Dr. Kornafel. This doctor was recommended as a specialist by my existing doctor, and I have never met someone that is so enthusiastic and so obviously passionate about their practice. This woman undoubtedly loves her work and clearly cares deeply for her patients. I had read some reviews generally complaining about "bedside manner" on Yelp, but look -- no one wants to get bad news, regardless of the delivery. No one likes hearing they have a problem. But sometimes (most times), that's the entire point of going to the doctor -- to figure out if you have any issues making you unwell, and get some help in fixing them. I for one prefer to be told that information straight with no sugar coating. I'm not there for a therapy session, I'm there to figure out what my issue is (or might be) so it can be addressed. And by the way, I did not find anything "rough" or "rude" or otherwise objectionable about the delivery of news I got. She is fantastically interested and caring, highly knowledgeable, and kind. I also saw some Yelp reviews complaining about the waiting room decor. To me this is shocking. For me that is so, so low on the list of things I care about when I go see a doctor. The office is absolutely not right out of a design mag, but that's OK in my book. I would much rather a humble office with reasonable fees where the focus is so obviously on the care of the patients rather than decorating. I would recommend her to any family member or friend.
Dr. Kornafeld takes the time to talk and answer questions with straight talk. Great staff, too.
Very sweet lady. Made be feel super comfortable.
Very attentive, shared great information and listened to all my concerns. Will definitely be back.
Dr Kornafel is a fat shaming, insensitive, condescending doctor. She doesn't talk unless you ask her specific questions even though she knows what your medical issues are, I'd rather her give me facts on my sexual health rather than my physical health because that is her place and nothing else. I am still so hurt and angry with my previous experiences with this doctor that I'd like to let it be known how awful she really is. She doesn't care about the patients feelings and just cares about doing to protocol and leaving. And if they eventually see my reviews they have to know it's not OK and it's traumatizing in itself to go through something like that. We deal with a fat phobic culture enough as it as that I want myself and other girls to feel like they have a safe space with their OBGYN's doctor. This is not acceptable bedside behavior and should not be tolerated. Also it would be really nice to have a print out of each specific things we are testing for and seeing the results on paper rather than just over the phone. thank you
She was great! very helpful in explaining everything. Made me feel very comfortable.
Dr. Kornafel is a funny, passionate, genuine person. I really enjoyed my visit and will be looking forward to any future visits.
Dr. Kornafel made me feel really comfortable and answered all my questions. I really felt like she was listening to what I was saying/asking...something I have found many doctors don't actually do (in my previous experience with other docs.)
I had a great experience with Dr Kornafel. She was sweet, knowledgable and gentle. I felt extremely comfortable with her and I was relieved that I found a doctor that I feel good about. The office was close to the freeway which was really convenient for me on my way to work. The bathroom and offices where also very clean. And the staff was very nice and had me in and out right away.
She’s a great OBGYN. She’s extremely professional and friendly. She explains everything in detail and spends time listening to her patients.
I love dr kornafel. Shes very easy to talk to and get advice from. She really explains things and always answers my questions in a way I understand. I recently moved and when i came back into town for the holidays I was able to get an appointment for my yearly check up. I highly recommend her!!!
Wonderful and sweet doctor! Takes extra time to care for you.
My visit was honestly therapeutic! Dr. Kornafel is so very knowledgable, caring, and open! Will visit her for all needs that I can!
I love Dr. Kathleen... she is a great dr. Makes you feel really confortable always... i highly recommend anyone to come to this office and see her.
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!
She was great and funny and smart.
I was terrified and thought I was basically infertile. KK made me feel much better and I'm going to work with her to get pregnant.
Amazing. So much knowledge and insight. Very personable and honest! She's a straight-shooter, which i love, so, we hit it off right away! I'd recommend her to anyone!
The doctor took her time to carefully explain my diagnosis, the various tests, and possible treatments. She was friendly and respectful. Her office staff was courteous and helpful.
Dr. Kornafel is very easy to talk to - has a fun, and knowledgeable way of communicating, and my appointments have all been such pleasant experiences! I highly recommend her. Her staff is very kind, and helpful as well.
Dr Kornafel was the perfect dr for Ashley. She talked slowly was very friendly took her time talking to her . The exam she explained what she was doing moved slowly took her time . Ashley was very happy with the visit and wants to come back to see the dr. Thank you.
Very thorough and informative first visit. I like this doctor a lot!
Straight & to the point; no nonsense manners; very knowledgeable. I read alot of Yelp reviews & reviews here before selecting Dr. Kornafel as my OB/GYN. She's the only doctor I trust for OB/GYN issues, since 2015.
I really liked my visit with Dr Kormafel. She was very nice wanted to know my concerns. Her bedside manner was excellent. She made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I would recommend other patients to visit her. The staff was very friendly and helpful also.
She is very good at breaking the ice quickly and making you very comfortable!
She made me feel comfortable and kept good conversation, she put in effort trying to get to know me.
I always wait a very long time but she's worth it.
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!
I had a great experience today. I haven't been to the doctors in over a year because I always have a terrible experience with how I am treated. Dr. Kornafel is very down to earth. She made me very comfortable right away and I would recommend her to anyone.
She's very nice and compassionate
I am returning patient because of my insurance changed I couldn't go to her for couple years but I am so glad that I got my favorite Doctor backw.
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.
Dr Kornafel is the nicest most intellegent doctor. She makes the visit pleasant and quick. Any questions or concerns you have she will alleviate and answer. The front desk woman is super nice and efficient. Highly recommend!
The office used a lab that was out of network for my insurance. I assumed they would check before sending it out, but I had to pay an extra amount on top of my co payment.
I am truly so thankful that I waited to get checked up by Dr. Kornafel. She was very detailed/informative and is actually really funny too! Made my time there very enjoyable and I will 100% be making her my primary OBGYN doctor.
Dr. Korbafel was an absolute pleasure to visit. She thoroughly explained all the things that we're going on with my body and was very informative about how to take the best care of it. She will definitely be my regular gynecologist!
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).
Dr. Kornafel was pleasant. She used term that we can understand when she explains.
Dr Kornafel was great! Very helpful, kind and attentive. Glad to have found her.
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!
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.
Dr Kornafel make us felt comfortable and she explained everything in the most simple way possible. She was ready to listen and gave her best advice. The staff (the receptionist) are not really welcoming & we were rush to fill the forms.
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.
As a new patient, the staff that greeted me were very nice. Also, Dr. Kathleen is very knowledgeable and professional.
She's one of the nicest doctors I've ever met
She is really nice and thorough.
I enjoyed the visit with Dr. Kornafel. She is very knowledgeable and caring towards her patients.
Amazing! Very personable and made me feel comfortable on my first visit.
Kathleen was very friendly and understanding. She listened well and treated me with care and concern. I highly recommend her!
Made me feel so comfortable right away, great personality. Really happy I found her!
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.
Dr Kornafel is very professional & direct and very likable
She is a great doctor. She was extremely informative and friendly. She made me feel very comfortable. I would definitely see her again and also recommend her to others.
I really appreciate the level of comfort, efficiency, and the kindness of Dr Kornafel. She's a wonderful woman her really cares about her patients.
I have never had a doctor who really takes the time to connect with patients. Dr. Kornafel has so much empathy! I highly recommend her and have been seeing her for 3 years.
Always professional and friendly
She is very nice, informative and very clear in explanation...!!
This doctor is phenomenal! Have you ever sat down in the doctors actual office to go over your results? We spoke in her office prior to the exam (which is so awesome, especially at an OBGYN where it can feel so impersonal and awkward but its nothing like that with Dr. Kornafel) and when I went back to receive some not so good results, again, we were in her private office. It means something to have your doctors full attention and talk to them outside of the exam room. I felt heard and protected because she knows her stuff. I guess I thought they only did that in the movies! She cares, like she genuinely cares. Dug deep into my medical background even requesting records from my home state from years ago so she could better understand my medical history. I have seen hundreds of doctors in my life and Dr. Kornafel is the absolute best, hands down, period! My second favorite thing is that the lab is ON THE PREMISES! There is no "here ya go, now go drive around and find a lab a so you can take another day off work to get your blood work accomplished" NOPE, the lab is there and blood tests done at that time. She is straight to the point, highly intelligent and asked me questions that I had never even thought of. Highly recommended!
I LOVE THIS DOCTOR! I am not a fan of docs or dentist but this woman is absolutely remarkable! Not only because of how thorough she is but then she takes the time to go over your results with you! She is amazing and one of a kind so you would be lucky to have her as your doc!
Very good visit. Just came in for my annual checkup. Dr. Kornafel is very knowledgeable and was great at answering any of my questions. The office staff were very nice too. We had a chat while I waited. For parking, they validate, but there's also easy parking in the neighborhoods nearby.
Every single time I go there, I have to wait at least half an hour to be seen, which is always a big inconvenience. However, Dr. Kornafel is great at her job.
Very professional and caring!
Dr. Kornafel is amazing! She took the time to answer all of my questions thoroughly and in a manner that I understood. She explored different treatment options with me and explained each one in depth. She made me feel at ease and like I mattered. When doing the ultrasound she made sure to explain to me what exactly we were looking at. I have been to several ob/gyns in the past who were dismissive and treated me like an idiot. You won't get that kind of treatment here. She is friendly and very warm. Very knowledgeable. She really is amazing. Couldn't say it enough.
I like Dr. Kornafel but have never been a big fan of her staff. They aren't very friendly. On Saturdays there is no one there to verify insurance. Also they wanted me to pee in a cup but didn't have any drinking water. Never have I ever been to a doctor's office where they don't offer water.
She was great and to the point. Very thorough and helpful.
Love Dr. Kornafel, though her office is somewhat dated and understaffed. No one answers the phones and the one girl working the office seemed to be stretched pretty thin. It's obvious the office hasn't been updated or cleaned in a while.
She's a great doctor that madevme feel very comfortable.
My first visit with Dr. kornafel went well and I thought she was direct and really funny. She drew pictures for me and explained everything out and was super helpful. The second visit I thought was going to be fine because she was coming in on a Saturday to make sure I could be seen and it did not go well. I couldn't tell if she was upset with me personally or her staff, but she was rude and not professional in the least. She told me to take out my Nuva ring prior to the visit which I did, and then proceeded to berate me for bleeding when the point of my visits were due to abnormal bleeding. She then got angry with me for pointing out that it is difficult to call the office (since no one ever answers) and proceeded to tell me how little money she makes and can't afford a full-time staff to take care of things like phone calls. She then wrote me a prescription without explaining anything and when I asked her if I should call within the next month if I continue to have abnormal bleeding she told me no one would be available because she is leaving for vacation with a horrible attitude. Finally, as I was leaving and looking to her staff for how I should pay for this worthless visit she proceeded to talk about her staff and how they don't do their job and that they would probably bill me. I have never seen someone in her position act this unprofessional and I have never imagined having such a horrible doctors visit. She has no bedside manner and I wouldn't recommend her to anyone.
The doctor was very nice and seemed on top of things, I liked her and felt comfortable in her care -- but her staff was disorganized and I kept getting random bills for stuff ACA is supposed to cover in full. Things seemed to move at a snail's pace while I was there.
The Waite time is due to Dr. Kornafel thorough time with her patients. She is detailed and is down to earth. Great bedside manners. I'd recommend her to anyone seeking a gynecologist.
She is great! I will definitely be seeing here again.
Love the doctor, very informative, approachable and cool. After all it's not easy meeting someone for the first time and putting your feet into the stirrups! Highly recommend!
I loved her. She really takes her time with you, you never feel that she is rushing, she talks to you like a human being. She is upfront, honest, no BS, funny, and relatable. SHe is also VERY thorough and knowledgable. The exam is what an exam is... a little awkward as always, but she makes it totally fine and calming. I am so happy to have found a gyno that I like. Shes terrific.
She is always very informative and is prepared beforehand for any questions I may have. And also fun to talk to!
Reading all the reviews, I really wanted to like her... But I've determined Dr. Kornafel is not for me after my second visit. My very first visit about a year ago - I came home thinking Dr. Kornafel is very direct, straight forward, and down-to-business. She was pretty tough, hard and frustrated at times when I couldn't remember all the dates, but I was ok with her approach. My second visit - I went more prepared with all the dates and I wanted to communicate everything I thought was important for her to know... But I felt like she didn't want to hear any of it. She was very frustrated and I felt like I was walking on eggshells more than last time. I was planning on doing fertility with her, but I thought why go through the torture when it is going to be a very personal experience. Maybe she can be a nice person to some people she likes, but I didn't think that was going to happen with me. And the reason why I decided to leave a negative review... I asked for my test results to be emailed to me. The office manager agreed to send it about 3 weeks ago. Since then I called and left messages 3 times (and discovered that no one ever answers the phone at the office...so inconvenient), but there are no return calls or emails from them as of today. I have insurance but it is still expensive to get tests done... I really hope I get my test results ASAP. It's starting to seem very unprofessional.
Dr. Kornafel was really thorough with the exam, and listened to all of my concerns without any judgement then totally addressed them! It's sad to say that I haven't experienced that in many years, it's obvious she really cares about what she's doing and the patients she sees. I'm very happy to have finally found her.
Loved Dr. Kornafel and I loved her staff! I've been floating around LA trying to find a good gynecologist and I feel I finally found one! Dr. Kornafel answers all of your questions and gets right to the point while still having great bedside manner. Loved her staff as well!
She was very nice and straight forward. I liked how thorough she was and she gave great answers to any questions I had. I would definitely recommend her!
After my first consolation, my husband did the recommended test Dr. Kornafel ordered. Two weeks later, I called her office for the results and to schedule a follow up appointment. I left three messages. NO ONE CALLED ME BACK. It's been over a month. Dr Kornafel is great, but her OFFICE STAFF SUCKS. I am looking for another Specialist. I hope she reads all of the Yelp Reviews about her office staff. She could have a business that patients love.
Great staff and doctor. They got me in right away, she listened to all concerns/history, super thourough and an excellent bedside manner. I'm recommending her to all of my friends and I'll be back!
My visit was great. The staff is friendly and answers any questions you have. Dr.Kornafel is very professional, concise but still willing to explain each step of a procedure. I appreciated the detailed explanations answering all my questions.
I love her, she always has a conversation with me and makes me feel comfortable before any procedures.
She was very informative and drew a diagram so that I can visualize what she was talking about. Showed me pictures and was very detailed. Looking forward to more visits!
Dr. Kornafel took her time to explain things and even draw things out for me to have a visual of what she was trying to explain! I did not feel rushed and she answered all of my questions thoroughly. She also met with me in her office first prior to the exam room, which was nice. She is very professional yet manages to not seem so intimidating like most doctors. Visiting your OBGYN isn't the most pleasant thing, but she made me feel very comfortable and I will be seeing her routinely. The girls up front were also very helpful and nice. The office itself, however, could use some upgrading.
This office is one of the best. Wonderful staff, very kind, understanding and professional. Dr. Kornafel has a wonderful bedside manner, communicates extremely well and always answers my questions with clarity.
She was really great at explaining why and what she was doing and making you feel at ease.
Kathleen was wonderful. She was thorough, funny, and explained everything clearly. She also took the time to meet in her office before the exam so we could take a quick look at medical history and discuss any concerns before disrobing. It makes such a difference to have that proper introduction and build communication that way. I was also grateful that she has Saturday hours and that I was able to book an appointment just 24 hours ahead of time. Free time is rare for me, so when it arises I need to make my appointments quickly to get everything squared away. Her office was warm and professional, the location was easy to find with parking that was a breeze. I'll be happy to recommend her to others, including my own family.
Great doctor, very clear and supportive.
She was very informative and took the time to talk to me before the procedure and exam.
She's great! I don't live very close to her office anymore but I continue to see her because the level of care is so excellent. Totally willing to make the drive for my annual because she's the best obgyn I've seen.
She is very professional.
It was a pleasant visit. She apologized for the wait and made my second pap smear comfortable and less awkward.
Kathleen is super personable and open. I felt very comfortable speaking to her. She kept a light conversation going while she did the check-up, so I didn't feel anxious.
She is very kind and very professional. She takes her time and is very thorough. One of the best Drs I have seen.
Felt very rushed and like she just wanted me out of there from the moment she walked through the door. Never asked me the standard "how are you" or relevant questions about my symptoms. Didn't even ask me when my last period was or other symptoms, recent history since last year. Cut me off short when I tried to explain my other concerns and brushed it off saying she knew already what it probably was. I felt written off with a quick prescription.
Dr. Kornafel took time to get to know me personally and build rapport during my first exam with her. She was very easy to talk to, very efficient, asked if I had any questions, clarified points in my medical history, and spent just the right amount of time with me.
She really listened to my concerns and came up with a comprehensive game plan for how to address the issue at hand.
Great first visit very happy with her explanation and time spent with us . Will defiantly be starting a ivf cycle as soon as possible Can't wait to get started
Dr. Kornafel was very friendly and personable. I felt at ease speaking with her. She took the time to explain everything that was going on and was very gentle throughout the process.
What an amazing Doctor. She is so comforting and sweet. She talks to you throughout the process to make you feel more at ease. She is very compassionate and caring. The front desk was also very attentive and great.
She was wonderful! Made me feel very comfortable in what can often be a very awkward situation.
Very nice lady, made me much less nervous for my first ever exam. Would absolutely recommend to anyone.
This was my first visit and I was very impressed. Dr. Kornafel was charming, took her time and was very informative with questions I had. Would highly recommend this doctor.
Dr. Kronafel is fantastic! She made me feel comfortable and was very sweet. Sure the office was a little slow, but Dr. K was worth it!
I think Dr. Kornafel is the best doctor that I've ever had. She really listens and gives clear and thoughtful advice. I'm so glad that I found her.
Long waits but without the office being busy. Last appt I waited over an hour to be called in, without any updates or apologies. I asked after 45 minutes whether I was forgotten about and was abruptly told the dr. was with a patient, but I never did see a patient leave by the time I was finally called. The dr. is nice enough, but I doubt I will go back because of the amount of time spent waiting.
This was my first visit and my appointment was for 11am. I waited until 1215 to see her. it seemed to me that she didn't like me to ask question and a one point she said to me that she had to move along . I guess I was there for 15 minutes. She is rude, bad energy and I won't go back there ever again. I am being honest.
She was great! And funny/personable too. I like to know that doctors are humans too!
Kathleen and I had a great conversation about politics, aging, and society...and then she made me get in the stirrups. Very professional, very personable, am definitely going to her for all my gynecological needs.
She was great. Very easy to talk to about very personal things. I actually look forward to my follow ups :D
Dr. Kornafel was very kind, professional, gentle and just truly a pleasant person to deal with. I was very impressed and felt very welcome as a first time patient, and well taken care of. I would certainly recommend her!
She takes time to listen. Provides a very detailed treatment plan. very professional. highly recommended!!
Dr. Kornafel is great and her staff is very helpful. Highly recommended!
Dr. Kornafel is the BEST, she is friendly down to earth and likes to educate her patients on what's going on. Whether you've got a long term plan in the works (or in the oven) or tired of seeking refuge in "Dr.Google" this is the Dr. You need to go to.
The good thing was i did not wait long.
Dr. Kornafel was great and I am definitely going to go back to her. The one complaint I have is that the nurse was pretty condescending and rude so it wasn't a perfect experience.
She was very informative and made me feel very comfortable. Honestly, the best pap of my life. Highly recommend Her!
I'm very happy with my visit.
Professional and addressed my questions and concerns.
I will definitely go back to see doctor Kornafel.
Dr. Kornafel was absolutely fabulous! This was my first time talking to a doctor about infertility issues. She really took the time to explain everything, gave me information that was legible, plus slips for bloodwork and referrals. She was very easy to talk to. I recommend her to anyone!! Staff was also friendly and helpful. Make sure you get there a good 20 mins before your appointment though because the paperwork is extensive.
I cannot recommend Dr Kornafel enough! She spent an hour with me and the exam was the most thorough and informative I've ever had. She's warm, personable, patient and very knowledgeable. I only wish I had met her sooner!
Quite frank and personable OBGYN!
nice and short wait
I like her a lot. She's a keeper.
She was very personable and very matter-of-fact!! I felt very comfortable with her, and would absolutely recommend her to anyone that I know!
In my opinion, her bedside manner works for me--but I can see how people might find it "too blunt" ((particularly in LA)). I like to have all the information available to me whenever possible, and she will give it to you straight. She doesn't seem to have a ton of tolerance for people who don't have an understanding of what she might consider to be the basic science behind her area of specialty, which is a little disconcerting given the fact that that's why we see a specialist...but like I said, that kind of attitude happens to work well for me, even if it does feel like you're frustrating her a little but not being completely knowledgeable about the topic.
She was wonderful! Addressed all concerns and answered my questions. Made me feel very comfortable!!
Although I did have wait a while to see her she spent at least 30 minutes with me and went well out of her way to get me extra information. I think if you are looking for an informative and detailed visit she is your gal!
As a new patient, the future looks very promising with answers to many obstacles.
Good thing is all the diagnosis is done in a single visit rather than going to different locations for different tests, let it be blood work, ultrasound and others.. Can save lot of time and the doctor responds to all the queries nicely.
Absolutely fantastic doctor. She takes the time to get to know you and your lifestyle which makes you feel so much more comfortable! Very knowledgable and passionate about her work. She explains everything and is very thorough. I somehow felt healthier after leaving the office!
She's so great. Definitely my new gyno!
Dr. Kornafel put me a ease right away. I can honestly say that my visit with her was the most thorough and pleasant doc visit I can remember having in ages. I would highly recommend her.
I highly recommend Kathleen Kornafel. She made me feel comfortable immediately. She is personable, funny and genuine. She is smart and straightforward and seems to really care about her patients.
She was very patient and didn't rush me and gave me the time to explain my problem, she tried to help me as much as possible. She's great!!! Highly recommend her!
Very thorough. I appreciate that this is a small organized office. I felt I was given the time to explain the purpose for my visit and received answers / recommendations with confidence. Thank you.
I absolutely loved Kathleen! She was easily my favorite OBGYN ever. Super friendly, informative and easy to talk to. Wouldn't recommend anyone else - she's the best!
I think this was a great first visit. She was understanding and answered my questions.
I just love this doctor! She is very personable and caring and really takes the time to get to know what your concerns are.
Dr. Kornafel was wonderful. Being a first time patient, her and her staff were friendly, and I felt comfortable being there. I would definitely recommend her to my friends.
She was very thorough but got to the point quickly. Short wait too!
I was apprehensive about seeing a Fertility doctor. Concerned they would want to immediately prescribe some meds for me and send me home to 'wait and see'. I was pleasantly surprised at the helpful and kind receptionist immediately. Upon being escorted into Dr. Kornafel's office, my husband and I really appreciated the personal time she gave us which allowed us to get to know her better and feel comfortable with her. She didn't rush our appointment and took the time to answer our questions straight forward with no fluff and that's how we typically like it. She has a wonderful, light-hearted personality and gave us more positives than negatives. If you are looking for a doctor who will give you the time and provide direct answers and not beat around the bush...make your appointment with Dr. Kornafel today. We left feeling like we had a plan in place and the outlook was positive which gave us some hope.
Dr. Kornafel was amazing, very professional and very respectful.
She was very knowledgeable, warm and friendly. Her whole staff was extremely helpful and I would recommend her to any of my friends.
Doctor provided excellent service. She made it worth waiting for which was unusually long. She provided useful information throughout the appointment.
She took the time to get to know me. She was kind, informative and really listened to me as well as took my personality and my background into account when talking about treatments and medical advice. A great person and a great bedside manner. I just moved here and I will definitely keep her as my new gynecologist.
Dr Kathleen explains very well about your condition.. Still got follow up, hope it works in much better way..
Very professional yet personable. She made me feel very comfortable. Answered all of my questions and I was in and out within an hour. And somehow the nurse who drew my blood managed to do so without me barely feeling a thing! Already recommended Dr. K to my friend.
Loved her! Knowledgable, professional, and personable, what more could you ask for!
Friendly and personable. Explained everything clearly and answered all my questions. Appts are readiky available (my previous ob/gyn had a 6 month waiting list for a pap). Will definitely keep her as my on/gyn.
Dr. Kornafel was extremely personable, friendly and asked lots of questions regarding myself and also my health. She was quick but took her time and I never felt rushed at all.
She was great! I highly recommend her. She took her time with me and answered all my questions.
Dr Kornafel was very attentive. She answered all my questions, spent time explaining things, very professional and nice..would recommend her and am happy to have her as my physician.
Awesome doctor. I've been to about 3 other doctors regarding a particular concern, and she's the only one who took the time to actually try and figure out what's going on right then and there. She gave me very clear and concise information that really cleared a lot of things up for me.
I loved Dr. Kornafel! She was so kind, gentle, informative, and spent a lot of time with me!
She was absolutely wonderful and everyone that works in the office was very friendly and helpful.
I really appreciated her. The only problem is that I went to her for an OB visit, but she is not an obstetrician. She specializes in gynecology and fertility, but doesn't deliver babies or oversee a pregnancy all the way through. She was still very helpful and gave me recommendations for OBs. She didn't make me feel like I shouldn't be there.
Dr. Kornafel was extremely pleasant and friendly. By far the best experience I've had in a doctor's office.
