The doctor gave me prescriptions for 2 completely different type of birth controls and told me to go on blogs to choose which I thought was best. The nurse called me 8 times after my visit and confusion with the pharmacy since this office lists the wrong number- each time she yelled louder and was increasingly more condescending.

Despite listing the precise reason for my appointment when I booked, when I saw him, he refused to perform the device (remove birth control from my arm), made me feel bad for getting it in the first place and told me to go to Planned Parenthood which was an enormous waste of my time. Curt and unhelpful.

This was a terrible experience. The office at 375 Jay Street is run down and dirty looking. The reception area looks extremely disorganized. The receptionist was noticeably flustered and often rude. I told her that I filled in all of my information on ZocDoc. But it didn't appear that anyone read my information or even my reason for visit! I had booked an emergency visit for nipple pain. They treated me like I was there for an annual visit including blood work, PAP smear, etc. The receptionist charged me a copay before I was seen by the doctor. The waiting room was so packed that people were standing because they didn't have enough chairs. I waited for ONE HOUR AND 45 MINUTES before the doctor saw me. The doctor rushed through a bunch of routine questions with me, and assumed I was there for my annual check up to renew my birth control. I felt like I wasn't given a chance to speak! I finally managed to say that I was experiencing nipple pain. He sends me into the exam room, gives me a paper sheet and tells me to undress. The nurse opened the door while I was topless in the exam room and was shocked to see I was in there. She kept the door open as she turned to ask the doctor why I was there (other patients could see me in the exam room!). The doctor told me my diagnosis before looking at my nipple. I felt that he was not thorough, and I did not trust his word, especially since I wasn't able to tell him everything that I felt I needed to tell him about the situation. I needed to wait to check out with the receptionist. She tried to schedule me for a follow up appointment. We argued back and forth because I said that I didn't need a follow up appointment and she said that I did. After announcing to her (in front of everyone in the waiting room) that I was there due to nipple pain, I finally got her to understand that I didn't have any tests done and I didn't have a routine visit, it was an emergency visit AS I WROTE IN MY ZOCDOC INFORMATION and that I would NOT be coming back. I was embarrassed. The whole interaction made me very uncomfortable.

This place is very outdated and almost dirty. They should do something with that super tiny exam room. I am petit and could barely move in there and the nurse was right next to me whole time while I am changing. Such an displeasurable experience. And also, people included a doctor and staff are all stubborn and rude. They don't listen just command you. Absolutely not my type of doctor's office.

I had a pretty terrible experience here. Dr nitkins employees (all women) were generally great, but he was unprofessional and demeaning. I felt like I was being talked down to, my concerns were discounted and ignored, and I was basically forced into scheduling a procedure for a new IUD that I neither asked about or wanted. If you are at all sensitive to blatant misogyny, do not go to this doctor for any of your women's health needs. Ever.

I arrived at 12:40 for my 12:45 appointment but I wasn't seen until 1:50. Apparently, the receptionist was stuck trying to figure out my health insurance but I would've appreciated it if she gave me an update instead of making me wait over an hour to see the doctor. Once that was sorted out, I was called in pretty quickly. Dr. Nitkin was very professional and answered all my questions. He scheduled me for a follow-up sonogram the next day, and it was only then that I really enjoyed my experience. The nurse technician was SUPER friendly and walked me through the entire process. She made an effort getting to know me, asking questions and talking to me so I wouldn't focus on the ultrasound until after it was done. Then she explained the results as best as she could and told me I'd receive more results in my follow-up appointment. To sum up, I really liked the nurse here. The doctor's okay. Will probably come back again just because the office is so close to my work.

The receptionists at this practice are exceptionally rude, to the point of being heartless. I was keeled over in pain and treated like a nuisance, both on the telephone and in person. The doctor made many inflammatory statements that turned out to be completely untrue, and sent me away with a prescription. I ended up in the ER a few hours later and was diagnosed with a severe infection in my colon, something that this doctor completely missed while speculation I had an STD or uterine infection. If I had listened to this doctor I could have actually died from sepsis. Overall an incredibly horrible experience from start to finish.

All staff were kind and quick to assist. The only thing I would mention is that as a patient you can hear some things the doctor is discussion with other patients in adjacent room, which may be off-putting for some.

Basically called me fat without really using the term. I came to see a GYN, but felt like I was talking to a dietitian... Even offered me some diet pills. If you are not a skinny twig, DONT GO SEE HIM. Any sign of excess fat, we will deem as overweight and unhealthy. AVOID

At first I was a little skeptical because the office doesn't look very professional and the receptionist area seems a little disorganized. I was then reassured when I talked to the doctor...but then became weary again when they took me into an old, dimly lit exam room. I would definitely not recommend this place. I had an annual PAP exam and an ultrasound. The office then proceeded to send me three different requests for payment (of pretty large sums) via the insurance...I honestly think they're scamming the insurance company. I'm going to find another doctor.
