Dr. Damle is great! She is very professional and adaptive. She made my visits very comfortable and worked around my traveling schedules so that my treatments were not interrupted due to a long vacation that I have planned long time ago.I’m also happy with the waiting time. Nurses are very friendly as well.

Dr. Damle was great. I waited 1.5 hours to see her. The doc office texted me to come in 30 min early then left me sitting around. Dr. Daimle said they had some urgent appointments scheduled last minute which led meto wonder why they didn't text me to tell me NOT to come in so early. None of the forms I filled out on ZocDoc were relevant either. I had to fill out an entirely new set of forms. That being said - the person who checked me in was very welcoming and nice, and Dr. Damle was terrific.

This was my first pap, and I was a nervous wreck. Dr. Damle did everything she could to put me at ease and make me as comfortable as possible. She's incredibly professional, but also has a great bedside manner. I couldnot believe how quick she was -- she made something I was dreading as painless and easy and fast as she possibly could. My appointment was three hours ago, and I've already recommended her to two people.

Dr. Damle is nice, patient, and thorough in her explanations. She talks me through everything step-by-step so I know what to expect at any moment. Her calm demeanor makes me less tense during procedures I might've been more anxious or concerned about otherwise.

I was nervous at first because I have always seen the same gyno for over 7 years. She was the only one available in the time I needed and I have no regrets. She was friendly, attentive and thorough. She wasinterested to learn about my concerns and willing to answer any questions and even asked some of her own to get to know me. I will definitely be scheduling again with her!

Dr. Damle is the best, and the staff at the office is awesome as well. Everyone is so friendly and considerate. They just got a new computer system today so they were running a bit behind, but they apologized profusely andwere clearly doing their best to put the patients' needs first despite their technical difficulties. I was able to get exactly what I came for in a reasonable time. I highly recommend Dr. Damle!

Dr. Damle was very friendly and answered all my questions. Follow-up on my concerns, however, was not good. I was supposed to receive information regarding potential costs for my treatment plan from their office and information on follow-up.No one ever contacted me again. I tried to reach out to the office via the patient portal (and had done this with another provider with the same group with a similar outcome) but never received a response. At this point, I likely won't be receiving further care from this office, as my deductible will reset by the time I would be able to set up the procedure. I had high hopes for this provider but I am unsure why I was never contacted following my appointment or after further attempts to get more information.

Lauren Damle is incredible but unfortunately her staff is not. Last time I visited they forgot I was in the waiting room and I had to wait almost two hours. This time (even though I called twice to confirm and gota text the day of) I showed up and they said I didn't have an appointment. Pretty frustrating.

I really enjoyed my visit with Dr. Damle. Despite the fact that they didn't apparently have my appointment on the books when I came in, fortunately I was there first thing in the morning and it was not a problem. Icame in at 8:15 for an 8:30 appointment and was taken back at 8:31. The desk staff and physician assistants were extremely pleasant, polite, and made me feel welcome. Dr. Damle is extremely professional and friendly. She answered all of my questions and seemed extremely present during my visit. I have not had any other doctor who provided such a quality experience.

I typically wait until after a second appointment to write reviews just to have a better sense of what a typical experience with the doctor will be like, not just the "first date" experience where everyone is on their best behaviour.My first appointment with Dr. Damle went well. She was kind, patient, and efficient. I was in and out of the office in about 90 minutes, with minimal waiting to see the doctor. I began having problems with my IUD five months after its insertion and scheduled a second appointment with Dr. Damle. There was inclement weather predicted the evening of my appointment, so the office called to reschedule my mid-afternoon appointment. Unfortunately, there was no inclement weather, so my appointment was unnecessarily cancelled and I soldiered on with the pain and bleeding I was having. I arrived for my rescheduled appointment, which was two weeks later. It was not until I arrived to the office and paid for parking in the garage that I was told that my appointment had been cancelled. No one had bothered to call me to tell me that Dr. Damle had cancelled it. I was so frustrated that I left without rescheduling. I called again today (a week-and-a-half later) to try to reschedule my appointment again using the exact same number I'd used previously and was told that there was no Dr. Damle in the department. If the doctor no longer works in that office, that also means no one has bothered to call her patients - or at least me - to let me know that I should find another doctor. Whether it is Dr. Damle herself or her office staff, I don't know, but nothing after my first visit has been a positive experience, and I would not recommend Dr. Damle until she and her office staff can figure out how to treat their patients with courtesy and respect.
