I waited for 2 hours and 10 minutes before I was seen. Prior to my appointment, I completed my intake forms online. It turns out the office doesn’t have access to them, so I spent 20 min filling out their extensivepaper forms. (That was considered fast according to the front desk staff). Then I had to provide a urine sample. The bathroom was filthy, no hooks to hang my coat, no paper towels, and no clear place to leave my sample. I had to wait in long line in the middle of a crowded waiting room holding my urine sample. The waiting room had Law and Order SVU blaring on the tv, which was uncomfortable and triggering. Plus, there was also an anti-abortion protester in front of the entrance.

I was running late so that might have had something g to do with the long wait. I suppose they just got me in where they could after being twenty minutes late due to a train delay! Very nice overall and very helpful.

Dr. Halstead is a great doctor, and she made me feel really comfortable. The wait time to be seen was unfortunately pretty bad - I was seen more than 2 hours after my scheduled appointment, and even after being called intothe examination room, I waited another 20 minutes to be seen by the doctor.

I made an appointment for 2 pm and upon arriving I was told it is first come first serve and the wait was an hour. I asked why do you all take appointments and the receptionist replied “I don’t know”.

She was well spoken but her staff was less than pleasant. Heard them talking badly about a patient. Would hate to hear who else they talk about. They are all either over worked or just plain rude. Thought this location wouldprovide good service but I was totally wrong. Dr. Halstead is nice though.

I had a mostly positive experience here. The wait time was short, the actual doctor I saw was nice and efficient. However, I went for a sonogram at the recommendation of the doctor (they were able to do it the sameday in like 15 minutes!) and the technician was pretty insensitive and not very gentle. Would probably go back, but I’d also speak up a little more

Once I got to actually see her I could see why people love her. The office was very busy and wait was long but she's highly professional, is quick to communicate and share information, and asks important questions. You dont feellike she's running down a checklist when she talks to you, so if you have concerns come prepared to address them and get the most out of your time with her.

She is a good doctor bc she really cares about your health. She puts your health first (not just bc this is her industry profession), and she is disappointed if you don’t put in the same interest in maintaining good healthfor yourself. You will know this once she sees you. Be prepared to be accountable for your health habits . Most doctors can disconnect well from patients, almost seeming robotic, but she is a passionate professional. Glad that I found her on ZocDoc. 10 stars. I am looking forward to making sure that I take care of myself better so that she can see my investment in myself.

Doctor's office was clean and neat. Waiting area and bathroom needed some care. They were supposed to call me Saturday. I did not receive a call. No complaints about that yet, they may have been busy. Overall, I really liked thedoctor. She was professional and seemed to put me at ease with information.

I won’t be going back. Waited over 2hrs to be seen then rushed through a 10 minute consultation with her which was interrupted by the radiologist. She turned an appointment that was meant to be about happy news, into one of the worst doctor experiences I’ve ever had.

Terrible visit. I went for a general check up and they took forever to call my name, I got to the office for a 4pm appointment and left at 6:20pm, noone seemed to care for others time. when i went todouble check and make sure i hadnt missed my name being called, the woman told me they had already called me, even though i assured her they didn't. turns out she had confused me with someone else. this place is highly unprofessional and I wouldn't recommend coming AT ALL!!

I was recommended to go there, what my Friend forget to mention was to a ask for another GYN because Halstead was rude, clearly I had a taste of it. Went there for a Pap smear, I also wanted to inquireabout birth controls, she seemed bothered my questions, would answer my questions with a question, my visit was rushed and she was uninformative, horrible bedside manner , if it wasn’t for the picture on ZocDoc I wouldn’t even know what Dr. I saw until I asked. I will not return there again!

Dr. Halstead is very direct/to the point, which can be slightly off putting, but she is knowledgeable and capable, which is what matters most. She changed my medicine recommendation based on our conversation and my weekend plans, and I appreciated that.

Dr. Hale stead was impatient, condescending, interrupted me while I was explaining my issues and had NO compassion. She appears to be overworked and seems irritated by her patients. The women coming to see her deserve better than the unprofessionalattitude she gave me. I didn’t even stay for an exam or the sonogram that I needed. I left after speaking with her. I will not be returning.

She’s knowledgeable. Her bedside manner is really rough especially for the field she’s in. She knows what she’s talking about but she’s extremely rough in character. She also lacks professionalism. I heard her from across the room speakingabout the not so pleasant odor of a patient in a not so pleasant way. This was my first GYN visit ever and I was overall disappointed.

I filled out tons of paperwork, peed in a cup, and waited over an hour for them only to tell me that they don't take my insurance. I showed them my insurance card when I first got there and they didn'trealize until after I've been waiting for an hour. It was a total waste of time.

Too much paperwork especially when I got asked the exact same question by the doctor who wrote the answers again on another paper?! Waiting time is not acceptable when I set an apointment to avoid the wait: almost 2 hours. Waitingfor the doctor to come half naked is very unpleasant, I should be asked to get undressed by the doctor after I met her, not before she enter the room and I met her for the first time. A nurse showed up and told me I wouldn’t meet anyone else after I asked so I had to insist to see the doctor I booked the apoinment with!
