Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Cha was great. She asked questions, listened, and talked me through everything I wanted to know, patiently answering several questions at the end of my visit. Will definitely be returning.
Dr. Cha answered all our questions without us even asking. The visit was quick but I didn’t feel rushed. She was very nice and she seems like she knows what she’s talking about.
Dr Cha is very thourough. She explains everything that needs to be and is always clear about it. She took me righ on time. The receptionist is very nice and helpful as well. I recommend this place!
the staff and doctor were very friendly.
Dr. Cha's staff was extremely friendly. I probably waited no more than 15 minutes after my appointment time and was still out in an hour. She explained everything that would take place during my consultation. Dr. Cha seems very knowledgable and is professional while still being approachable.
Overall quick and easy visit. Not a long wait time, office is easy to get to. Dr. Cha is very friendly, knowledgeable, and didn't rush the appointment. Would definitely recommend.
Everyone in the office was really friendly and I was in and out of the office in about 40 minutes! I think that's a record for a doctor's appointment. Dr. Cha had a great bedside manner and was able to make me feel comfortable in a short amount of time. Her office is also really efficient and uses technology in a way that makes her patient's lives easier. I highly recommend her!
I'm a first time mommy, and I cannot be happier to have found this place to go through my pregnancy. Everyone is super nice, professional and kind. So thankful, will definitely recommend
Dr. Cha is by far the best OBGYN I've ever seen, in every way- personality, demeanor, thoroughness, patience, kindness, and technique/skill/gentleness. I will tell everyone I know to come see her!
really nice, efficient, and friendly!
Laura is wonderful! :-)
Love going to Dr. Cha -- she's so warm, friendly, professional and gets you in and out quickly. Wonderful experience every time.

Dr. Cha was so informative and nice. This is our first pregnancy and she was so kind and patient with our questions. I am so happy we chose to go to this practice and look forward to seeing her again as well as meeting the other doctors there.
amazing experience, looking forward to having her as my doctor.
Dr. Cha was great ! She was thorough and did not rush my exam. She was very kind and she made sure to tell me about the procedure very clearly.
Dr. Cha is a thoughtful and wonderful physician who takes her time and truly cares for her patients.
I loved everything about it. I was there for a preconception appointment and am rather anxious, just in general but specifically relating to trying to have a baby. She was reassuring and extremely personable. She was firm with me too when necessary but in a way that didn't make me feel stupid or bad about myself. Overall, I would highly recommend her!
The office staff was nice and welcoming, and the doctor was smart, attentive and warm, as well as very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend.
Best doctor in NYC! Dr. Cha and her staff are amazing. I'm so happy I found them!
Love Dr. Cha! So happy to finally find a knowledgeable gynecologist with a wonderful bedside manner.
This was my first visit. I am very happy overall and look forward to seeing Dr. Cha again. Thank you!
Laura is very friendly and professional.
I visited her for Annual Pap Smear. I was there for about 45mins in total. I waited for 25 mins in total, before I met her, and after an assistant checked my weight, etc., and after I put on the pink paper robe. Dr. Laura Cha was very nice. She was quick in speaking and performing the tests, and I liked the quick way. It was my first test, so I was nervous, but she made me feel it was ok, and everything was ok.
I love Dr Cha! I drive all the way from NJ just to see her! She delivered both of my kids and I highly recommend her to anyone searching for a great OB/gyn. Office is clean, staff is friendly and I never wait more than 5 minutes to see her.
Doctor Cha was awesome. However, the office staff has a major attitude issue. She was impatient and almost scolded me for using two emails in their system. Hello? ! Get used to technologyand have some sense of decency
Great experience with Laura Cha. I felt very comfortable discussing my concerns. Laura was very knowledgeable, and provided me with information that was specific to my needs rather than generic responses. The woman at the front desk was also friendly. Overall a welcoming environment, and I look forward to future appointments.
Dr. Laura Cha is very kind, professional and thorough. Would highly recommend if you are looking for an OBGYN.
Dr Cha really is amazing and answers all your questions doesn't rush you out of the office . She is attentive, caring , and I would recommend her to absolutely anyone !
I got there early and she saw me right away. Very friendly and easy to talk to - I was out of the office before my actual appointment time. Highly recommended!
Dr. Cha was very personable and made me feel very comfortable. I highly recommend her.
Love her and her entire office. Everyone is very helpful and responsive. Most importantly, I feel so well taken care of.
Dr. Cha was great. She was personable and elicited my reasons for the visit. The examination room was clean and tidy. The assistant who brought me back to the room was punctual and professional. The two ladies at the front desk ignored me both before and after my visit when I tried to check in with them. I am not even sure what their roles are in the office but if they are not meant to interact with patients, they should get an office in the back with a door.
Dr. Cha takes time with you during the visit. You are not rushed and she listens to your concerns. She is very informative and give you several options to health problems you may have. She is a great physician!
Dr. Cha has been my lady doctor for many years now, she has helped me through many a difficult time, tough questions and yearly exams. She is truly an amazing doctor.
She was great and explained all of the options. She made it clear that the visit was going to start with a chat and made sure to put me at ease. A great visit over all!
Dr. Cha was friendly, approachable and very helpful.
Dr Cha has a great bedside manner and was able to answer our questions. The office staff are friendly as well and I think that helps the entire office visit experience.
Very warm and welcoming, helpful, listened to my concerns, had things done right away. Also really nice and intelligent.
Very friendly and professional.
Dr. Cha is amazing. Approachable, kind, thoughtful, thorough and knowledgable. She has a great bedside manner and really takes the time to answer your questions. I highly recommend her.
Dr Cha's bedside manner is great! She is warm, easy to talk to and made me feel very comfortable.
Explained possible causes of symptoms thoroughly and with clarity.
Nice personality. Very knowledgeable.
Going to see an OB-GYN can be awkward, but Dr. Cha went out of her way to make me feel as comfortable as possible. She was professional, pleasant, and efficient.
Dr. Cha was wonderful! Made me feel very comfortable with her immediately (important when looking for a gynecologist!). She asked if I had any questions multiple times and did not judge anything I asked her! I would fully recommend her to anyone!
Since i was a new patient, I arrived about 10 minutes before my 4pm appointment for an annual check up. Dr. Cha was just finishing up with only other patient in the office and saw me right away. I was out the door and on my way home at 4:15! This was such a nice surprise as I'm used to waiting at least 30 minutes in any doctors office. Dr. Cha was so nice and easy to talk to. When my test results came in I received an automated message and was able to go on the website to see them. Could not be any more convenient!
Great doctor. Very attentive and more knowledgeable/ understanding than other gynos I've see in NYC.
Professional and very friendly
Dr. Cha was welcoming, warm and I really enjoyed meeting with her. She took the time to answer all my questions and address all my health related needs.
She was very professional and a great doctor!
Dr. Cha is one of the best doctors I've ever seen. She always greets me with a smile and is more than happy to answer any of my questions. I highly recommend her!
This was my first visit to see Dr. Cha and she was very friendly, professional, and answered all my questions. I had some concerns about sexual problems and breast cancer concerns and she was able to put my mind at ease.
Excellent bedside manner. Very gentle and answered my questions thoughtfully. Would highly recommend.
Dr. Cha was great! Very knowledgeable, professional, and made me feel comfortable during my exam.
Always fast, easy and thorough considering how fast it is. I was in and out in less than 30 minutes and all my blood work will be completed and the results emailed to me and Dr Cha will call me if there is anything to discuss.
I thought she was great. Pleasant to work with and took time to explain my results to me thoroughly.
Dr. Cha is a wonderful and personable professional who addresses your concerns with care.
Can only rate on first visit, but it was up to my 100% satisfaction. Extremely happy with Dr Cha's care, attention, and thoroughness.
Amazing doctor!! We are so happy to have met Dr. Cha. We are looking forward to doing pregnancy with her!
Dr. Cha is great: she is easy to talk to and very professional. Highly recommend her and her practice.
Dr Laura Cha was super friendly and very professional. Her staff were also nice and efficient. I would not hesitate to recommend.
I have been going to Dr. Cha for years now... She is always fast, efficient, caring and remembers everything. Highly recommend her to everyone!
Dr. Cha is very professional and welcoming. I went right in and my entire appointment took no more than 20 mins.
Dr Cha was recommended to me by a friend, and I can see why. She is not only a great physician, but she is a genuinely cool person. She makes you feel really at ease, knows how to crack a tasteful joke, and there is never any question of slut-shaming. Bonus points-- their phlebotomist is so good I couldn't even feel the needle.
Dr. Cha really is wonderful. She was thorough, patient, and friendly as were the other women working in the office. I was really impressed with their efficiency as well. Highly recommend her!
I found Dr. Cha to be very unprofessional. I visited her twice, and she reacted quite judgmentally when I told her that I was not exclusive with my sexual partner. She also refused to discuss a particular form of birth control because I was not consistently having sex. Last I checked, that is not a medically relevant reason -- after all, BC is used all the time for PMS reasons. I would never recommend her to a friend, and I would HIGHLY suggest that she get some sensitivity training.
As much as I hate having to go to my annual, Dr. Cha makes it as painless as possible. She's friendly, non-judgmental and makes you feel comfortable.
Dr. Cha is the most patient and gentle doctor one could ask for. Highly recommended!
I saw Dr Cha and her partner, Dr Metz for my second pregnancy, and the experience at they were both wonderful. They listened to my concerns, were always ready to discuss their recommendations and alternative options, and they were respectful of my choices. The office was always immaculate, the staff were friendly and efficient, and there was minimal wait time.
I'm definitely seeing her again! Very sweet, professional and intelligent doctor. I didn't feel rushed as she took her time with me during my appointment. Her office is small but nice and more importantly, clean and organized. I normally don't look forward to these types of exams, but Dr. Cha makes the experience much, much better!
Dr. Cha is an amazing Dr she is so easy to talk to and quick with everything. I love that you can email her anytime with questions and she answer just as easily or she will call you back pretty fast when calling the office. She delivered both my children and it was an excellent experience both time.
Dr Cha had amazing bedside manner; very professional yet easy to talk to. She asked lots of questions and had lots of good advice / suggestions without being overbearing or preachy.
Love Dr Cha and Dr Metz! Dr Cha was very thorough throughout my entire pregnancy. I felt like I was in very good hands with her. Her staff is friendly and her office is clean. I would highly recommend.
Very personable and made me feel comfortable. I'm glad I went to see her.
So here's the thing. I really like Dr. Cha, I think she's a great doctor. But her office is terrible. The people who work at the desk are rude and inefficient. I've had multiple problems with them. Most recently, I called about a medical issue I was having. I called the office, asked if I could see Dr. Cha or at the very least speak with her. The receptionist took down my information and said Dr. Cha would call me back. 3 hours later, I hadn't heard from her, so I called again. I told the receptionist I had called earlier, that I had to talk to Dr. Cha about a medical issue I was having. The receptionist was insanely rude and condescending. She was like, Dr. Cha is busy. She will call you when she can. I tried to pin down a time, and all I could get was "She'll call you when she's done with her patients." Sure enough, no phone call that day. Nada. The next day, I called the office for the third time. I explained to the receptionist what had happened the day before, and she said Dr. Cha would call me today. Not long after, Dr. Cha did call me. I told her what was going on, she said to wait a week and call her back if it's still a problem. Well this answer wasn't very comforting for me. So I made an appointment to see another gynecologist on zocdoc. She saw me the next day (whereas Dr. Cha didn't have availability for about a month and half). I got a vaginal ultrasound, and sure enough, I had a problem. Glad I didn't wait a week to find out. So basically, if you're just seeing Dr. Cha for your annual pap smear, she's great. But if you have a real medical issue that comes up out of nowhere... you better have a backup gyno.
I could easily suggest Dr Cha. She was quick, had a great personality and sende quite knowledgeable. I will definitely go back to her. The only negative was the office itself looked a bit messy and worn down and it did concern me at the onset.
Love Dr Cha. Professional but warm, asks all the right questions, makes you feel comfortable and cared for.
She was wonderful! Very approachable, professional, and timely. So glad to have found her!
Dr Cha is amazing! She always takes the time to answer all of my questions and is never rushed. She makes me feel very comfortable. I highly recommend!
She is wonderful, very professional. Can see how some people might think she's too blunt/direct but her honesty is appreciated.
Dr. Cha is patient, kind, and extremely helpful. She answered all my questions and was very personable. The visit was very pleasant. Thank you!
Dr. Cha is very professional but also laid back. I like her a lot!
Dr. Chan is very approachable. Open to discuss health and life issues. She always has my history in front of her and asks follow up questions. She has a nice office clean with a relaxing jet sophisticated atmosphere.
She was a great doctor! She was patient answering all my questions. The little brownstone office was warm and pretty clean. However, I didn't like that the tools used for pap smears were all just thrown into the exam room sink after use. I got up to put my clothes on, and there were like 5 of these tools, and some were covered in blood. That doesn't seem sanitary to me. GROSS! I liked this doctor, but I don't know if I'll go back because of that.
Very happy to have found such a great doctor.
Super professional. Felt very comfortable about asking all of my questions. Exactly what I needed. Thank you!
My office is far from Dr. Cha's office but I still make it a point to go uptown and crosstown for my annual. Highly recommended. She is very popular though so there may be a wait.
Very professional, but friendly. She listen to everything I had to say and spent adequate time with me, answering all my questions.
I love Dr. Cha! She saw me for prenatal care and delivery and she was great! My husband and I developed a great rapport with her throughout all our many pregnancy visits. She was always pleasant and answered all our questions. Towards the end of my pregnancy I was overdue and she made us feel at-ease and ready. When the time for delivery came, she exceeded all our expectations. I want Dr. Cha to deliver all my babies, but I moved to California :( My husband and I were sad to know she won't deliver our next baby, we plan to have three. Dr. Cha has set the bar really high for our next OB/Gyn. I wish her and her practice all the best!
She was a little backed up with patients, but the appointment itself went smoothly. She's very personable yet professional - highly recommended!
My first appointment with Dr. Cha was cancelled. And can I say it was the coolest cancellation ever?!? I was to be one of her first appointments for the morning. A patient went into labor the morning of my appointment. She called me at 6:30am, left a VM apologizing and explaining what had occured. She also apologized because it was the first time were were to meet and she felt terrible about that. Totally understand but babies arrive when they want to lol. The service did not call me, she did. I rescheduled. I really liked Dr. Cha. I was not seen right away but who is ever seen by an OB/GYN right away. My wait time was reasonable each time I went to see her. About 20 minutes. She is busy but took her time to discuss with me my medical history and anything else that I wanted to discuss. Did not feel rushed in anyway and also made some suggestions to me that I am happy to say worked out great. FYI, she now shares an office with the wonderful Dr. Susan Park.
It was great! She definitely makes her patients feel totally comfortable. It was my first visit to her office and I felt fine discussing everything with her etc. I am definitely switching to her permanently as my OBGYN doctor in NYC.
My first appointment with her, she seemed very nice, professional, honest and listened and answered thoroughly all my questions. Will definitely go back!
Dr Laura Cha was great. She was recommended to me by a friend and was very personable and was great about making sure I was comfortable asking her questions. She was very different from other doctors who seem to just want to get patients in and out without answering any questions. She explained what she was doing and why while she was giving me my exam and told me to feel free to call if I had any follow up questions.
Very nice and explains everything.
Quick and confortable
Amazing doctor. Knowledgable, friendly, everything a doctor should be.
I think Dr. Laura was great! Very professional and knowledgeable and also very easy to talk to. I will certainly continue using her as my doctor, highly recommended!
I've been coming to see Dr. Cha for years now. She is wonderful and always takes the time to address my concerns. She never makes me feel rushed and really listens.
I was a new patient nervous about going to the appt. Dr. Cha was easy to talk to, answered all my questions, and described everything that would happen in the exam before she did anything.
The doctor was awesome. Receptionist was a little unprofessional- talking on the phone with friends and texting while I was standing there, waiting on her to pay.
I am very happy with her, I have recomended her to my pregnant friends, and if I have another baby she will be my doctor again.
Very professional, very smart women. She took a good history and paid attention to my needs and concerns. She made excellent referrals.
She was great - explained things in detail and answered all my questions. Seemed smart and isn't the type of doctor to simply prescribe medication to cover up symptoms, without any solutions to the root cause. Highly recommend.
Great doctor, but the receptionist looks not so friendly and sincerely. I still need to fill out a form, which I assumed ZocDoc has already provided.
This was my first visit to an OBGYN and I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but the doctor was personable and made me feel comfortable so overall it was a good visit. There were two things that I didn't love: 1) In the bathroom, the windowsill had multiple plastic cups full of people's urine (I guess waiting to be sent for testing). Thought that was kinda disgusting...it's a pretty big office, I would think they could find someplace else to put these so everyone using the restroom didn't have to look at ,and smell, other people's urine. 2) I asked the doctor to look at the prenatal vitamins I was taking to let me know if they were ok and she pretty much dismissed my concern by saying, "I'm sure they're fine." But regardless, I felt that the positives outweighed the negatives and I will be going back for my next appointment.
Dr. Cha is very knowledgeable and friendly.
Great! Highly recommend!
Dr. Cha is personable, professional and truly cares about her patients. She takes the extra time and is willing to go the extra mile for a patient who might be struggling. She is such a great doctor and I feel completely safe & confident with her.
she was great, especially after a bad experience i had with another doctor. Dr. Cha was nice, communicative, and explained my situation, as well as possible ways of treatment very clearly and elaborately.
Dr. Cha is personable and professional. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a new doctor.
She is such an excellen, effecient, respectful and friendly. I was at ease talking to her. She asked me professional question in a simple language that I easily understood. She recomended some test to be done, and she told me why she think I should do. She is the dr one would dream of being attended by. I would 100% recommend her to any woman looking for Gyn doctor.
I have been going to her for about a year, and I think she is thorough, kind and you never have to wait too long for an appointment.
Dr. Cha has great bedside manner and always makes me feel comfortable during my appointment. She's thorough with her questions without being pushy and is just a friendly warm person who I don't mind seeing given the circumstances.
Dr. Cha was so personable and thorough. My appointment ran on time and I felt so comfortable. I am relieved to have finally found a Gyno I can confide in.
Dr. Cha is always fast, efficient, and friendly!!
I HAD AN EXCELLENT FIRST VISIT. SHE WAS VERY EASY TO TALK TO AND HAD GREAT EXECUTION OF THE PROPER TESTS I SHOULD BE GIVEN DUE TO MY HEALTH ISSUES. I FOUND THIS WOMAN TO BE VERY PROFFESSSIONAL.
The wait time was about 30 minutes but I expected that. She is very nice, professional and was patient with my questions.
Dr. Cha is very personable and friendly. She answers your questions thoroughly and has an excellent bedside manner.

Dr. Cha is a great OB-GYN. OB-GYN visits are always my least favorite, but honestly, going to Dr. Cha is never bad. She's very thorough and makes you feel relaxed. Highly recommend her!
Dr. Cha is one of the best doctors I have been to. Excellent bedside manner, very thorough, and attentive. Friendly staff as well.
She is kind and very thorough! Very professional but She also makes you feel comfortable during your visit!
This was my first visit with Dr. Cha, and I absolutely loved her. She was easy to talk to, friendly and informative. I would definitely recommend her!
Dr. Cha was excellent. She had a comforting and calm manner, the right balance of friendly and professional. She answered all my questions and addressed my concerns and I never felt that I was being rushed through my exam. I have seen several different gynecologists over the years and I now feel that I have found a gynecologist I want to continue to work with.
I kind of had an issue so I needed to see someone right away. My personal OB/GYN was not available for another week so I booked an appointment with Dr. Cha. When I walked in, both receptionists were on their cell phone, one who told me to wait a minute while she read a text message. The actual doctors office is kind of morbid looking and shabby. The doctor herself was very nice and light hearted. One thing I didn't like was that I was given a wide range of things that I could have. Basically, I paid a co-pay and probably some more for exams that I didn't really need for her to tell me that she didn't know. I left kind of freaked out and still unsure. Frankly,it was a waste of my time.
She is exactly who I am looking for in a doctor... specially a gynecologist: Personable, great listener, to the point, asks great follow up questions.
Very personable & thorough. I was seen quickly & had all of my needs addressed.
Took her time answering my questions and putting me at easy. Nice, cozy office. I used to go to a huge practice with several OBGYNs. I got a different doctor each time and it was run like some sort of baby factory. It was great to final be seen by a doctor that didn't seem rushed. I will definitely continue to go to Dr. Cha.
Dr. Cha was great, very friendly and open. She delivered my first baby two years ago, I have a complete, full of trust with her. I was there just for annual check up this time, but will come back for future pregnancy (if any!).
I felt very comfortable with Dr. Cha. She was very thorough. Her staff was also very polite and attended to me right away. I had did not have to wait at all.
Great bedside manner, made me feel comfortable right away.
This was a great experience! Will definitely come back again.
She is very professional and so kind. She listens and then gives her input on the situation, she is not judgmental at all and i love that aspect about her.
The staff is rude. You walk in to the office not knowing which secretary to turn to, and everyone ignores you. They didn't correct my phone number in their records when I asked them to, so I found out about a significant medical test result 1+ months after the results came through. Dr. Cha obviously doesn't look at patients' charts before coming into the exam room, because she'll ask you questions about procedures that she previously performed and other info. on medications / medical history that are already recorded in your chart. It makes me wary of her that the same information must be exchanged at every visit.
For an annual checkup, it was was good experience.
Dr. Cha was great - very direct and open. However, her two nurses were having some sort of issue with each other and were curt upon check in and check out, making the patient feel as if it were her fault. They were kind and professional when checking vitals, though.
She was a wonderful doctor and I'm gonna refer friends to her.
Dr. Cha is fantastic.
I love Dr Cha, I just wish everything as a whole was more sanitary. During an exam she touched the overhead light and then immediately touched me, which disturbed me. I also wish the staff would immediately label vials of blood to prevent a mixup. I saw unlabeled vials sitting on the office desk. Otherwise she has a great bedside manner and spends the time to discuss my concerns.
Dr. Cha is friendly and took the time out to answer any questions I had. I'm glad I found her through zocdoc.
Dr. Cha was extremely friendly and professional - I've never been as at ease with a new doctor right away before. I'd definitely recommend to anyone looking for a new doctor.
I thought Dr. Cha was wonderful! I like that her practice uses online records and she uses e-mail and the phone. I felt like she was easy to talk to and very thorough.
very friendly and takes her time to talk to you, explain things thoroughly and answer any questions.
whether you have health insurance or not ( if you must pay out of pocket) you must make your next ob or gyn visit with this doctor! she is more beautiful in person than in this picture. hard to believe i know bc this is a great photo. she's thorough, caring, and a great listener. we are lucky to find doctors who still know how to show that they care.and i am an MD myself.
Dr. Cha was great -- prompt, friendly, nonjudgmental, and quick. Highly recommend!
Dr. Cha is very friendly, fast and efficient. Highly recommend her!!
Dr. Cha was very pleasant, sympathetic, listened to my issues and suggested solutions, explaining the pros and cons. Couple of things to note, like many busy doctors, she doesn't call to let you know if test results are ok. Some people may be fine with that, I would rather hear from the doctor to go thru the results, like my internal doctor does. The other thing was her reception was very messy. The waiting room however was a complete contrast - very pleasant.
Dr. Cha and her staff are professional and make me feel comfortable, I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a new doctor!
Great doctor. After finding out that we were expecting our first child, it was really hard to find a good obgyn. Dr. Cha was the third and the last OBGYN I will ever look for. She was great, passionate, understanding, empathetic. Overall I highly recommend this doctor. Office is in the UES, nice classical music in the waiting area.
By far the best ob/gyn I have ever had. I recommend her to others all the time and everyone else is equally pleased with her bedside manner, pleasant disposition, and professionalism.
I had a wonderful visit with Dr. Cha. She was very personable and professional. Her recommendations were evidence based, and she provided a very thorough explanation of her care plan. The office room provided a pleasant waiting environment, and the staff was friendly and helpful. I will definitely go back.
I was seen right away, although I'm a new patient! Dr. Cha and her staff were very nice. Dr. Cha took time to take my family history and answer all my questions.
After struggling to find a practice with both doctor and staff who would be attentive toward my recent miscarriage needs, I found one in Dr. Cha and her practice. Will be coming here in the future and referring all of my friends!
Dr. Cha delivered my 2nd baby and she was at another practice and when I got pregnant again I changed the practice because I would love for her to deliver my next baby. She made the delivery very easy and during my pregnancy was helpful and made me feel at ease.
Doctor Cha is very nice and easy to talk to. I like her and will definitely go back.
She's easy to talk to and is eager to answer any questions. The nurses who work with her are also very helpful and I had a great experience overall.
Dr. Cha is incredibly easy to talk to. She listens carefully to concerns and answers questions without judgement. I would recommend her for future references...
love her. dr. cha is awesome
To the point and efficient with our time together. I was pleasantly surprised to be invited into her office for a brief chat regarding my medical history. I look forward to visiting her in the future.
Dr. Cha is fantastic. Unfortunately she is not able to deliver in the birthing center, but I am planning on going back to her after my pregnancy.
I went to see Dr. Cha for a regular annual exam with a pap. My experience was great. I was seen promptly after filling out some brief paperwork. Unlike many offices, they did not make me transcribe information off my insurance card. After the nurse took my vitals, Dr. Cha met with me in her office to discuss my history and any concerns. The exam was as quick and painless as is possible with these things. She also had her secretary call my insurance company to see what was covered, at my request. Dr. Cha writes birth control prescriptions for 12 months (some providers will only do 6 months), and allows patients to opt to get paps every 2-3 years as recommended by the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, assuming they have a history of regular paps and do not have any risk factors. This is truly a differentiator, as many OB/GYNs will refuse to write a birth control prescription unless patients submit to annual paps. I definitely plan to make Dr. Cha my regular OB/GYN.
Wait time was longer than preferred when the office seemed to be relatively quiet. Otherwise, Laura was great. Highly recommend.
She is extremely helpful- answered all of my questions with a smile, and made me feel comfortable. The people who are at the office, picking up calls are however, not very helpful and accomodating. I've had to call my insurance company a few times to clear up bills, because the paperwork was filed incorrectly on thir end. However, because the doctor is so wonderful, I will continue to go to her.
Doctor Cha was extremely nice. She is taking to time to explain things and always make sure that all questions have been answered. The reception staff could be nicer.
Super easy to talk to, efficiently run office. Quality experience all around.
Dr. Cha was wonderful! She was so sweet and genuine, yet also exceedingly intelligent. I would highly, HIGHLY recommend her!
Dr. Cha was extremely caring and took time to meet with me and discuss my health before the appointment, and to call me promptly with my results. Her bedside manner was the best I have had and her staff was friendly and professional. I will definitely continue to see her.
She was very good, and am switching from my previous doctor to her.
She was very nice, very professional and easy to talk to.
First pregnancy appointment with Dr. Cha and she was lovely, very relaxed and took time to answer all our questions. She also seemed really experienced and had done this a million times, so we know we are in good hands. C-section rate of about 15% which is good apparently. Benefits of a sole practitioner are that she will be seeing me for all my visits and very high likelyhood she will deliver as well (over 90% i think she said). Very happy to be with her, especially as this is my first time, she is very reassuring.
She is very kind! I feel so lucky to find her.
Dr. Cha made me feel extremely comfortable during my first visit. I plan on recommending her to all my friends.

Dr. Cha was excellent, she took the time to talk with me and get to know me a bit before my exam. Very, very nice and made me feel comfortable.
I was hesitant given that Dr Cha is so young , but she turned out to be the epitomy of knowledge, experience and professionalism. She took her time to answer all my questions, was very down-to-earth and gentle. I am so staying with her!!!
visit was great but she seemed rushed.
I thought it would be an unpleasant experience, but it was extremely quick, to the point, and painless. Dr. Cha really knows how to take professional care of her patients. I will return. ( :
I would definitely recommend Dr. Cha to friends and family members. She is very professional and makes you feel comfortable during a time when most women are usually pretty uncomfortable. I will be going back to her in the future.
Laura was lovely and extremely thorough, asking lots of questions and listening intently. She explained all my options where applicable. She was very reassuring and helpful and I would definitely recommend her to others.

She is the most lovely and helpful doctor I have ever been to! I can't say enough about her! I recommend her to everyone!

Great doctor, no wait time.
Had a short appointment, however, Dr. Cha was very nice, she made me feel very comfortable and gave me good advice. I will definitely be going back!
It was my first time to her practice after having a not so positive experience with another gyno. It honestly was like speaking with a close friend about my concerns. She was professional, non-judgmental, and most importantly - knowledgeable. I will definitely be seeing her for my next apt :)
First time patient, will definitely return.
Very nice! I would recommend her to anyone. She was very easy to talk to and made me feel very comfortable.
It was a pleasant visit. Dr. Cha was very informative and answered all my questions. The office called a few days before the visit to confirm with me which I feel is always helpful especially with a busy schedule. I am glad I used ZocDoc to find her.
Very friendly, professional and of common sense. Highly recommended
Dr. Cha was very polite and i felt at ease and comfortable with her. She was attentive and listened to all your questions. I highly recommend her and will visit her again.

Dr. Cha was very friendly and fast. I would highly recommend her and plan to return.
she is very personable and friendly.
She is an amazing doctor- I never had a female OBGYN and she was very friendly, gentle and being a woman we were able to discuss our bodies and the changes that happen to us as we age. I would highly refer her to anyone who was looking for a new OBGYN.
Dr Cha was warm, caring and a pleasure to see (and i never say that about doctors!) She really listened to me and I felt very confortable with her.
Very nice and professional, made me feel very comfortable and did procedures quickly.
This was my first visit with Dr. Cha and I will definitely keep her as my ob/gyn. She answered every question I had before my check-up and during my check-up. She asked questions about my experience with previous doctors and why I did not return to them. I think that feedback helped her to know how to approach me as her patient, which was very refreshing! She made a point to talk me through whatever she was doing, making me feel very comfortable with her. The wait time was not long either which is always a plus! I have already recommended Dr. Cha to others by word of mouth and I know that once they go to her, they will say the same good things I am saying now!
