Dr.Nitkin is extremely knowledgeable and he solved an issue (or what I thought it was an issue) that other doctors couldn't do for me in over a year! I am so happy to have found him and I would highly recommend him!!!

Dr. Nitkin was pleasant and professional, but I felt a bit rushed. The office staff was efficient. The one standout was Agnes who did my sonogram. She was friendly, informative, and obviously loves her job. Overall, I would say the visit was satisfactory and I would recommend Dr. Nitkin for routine care.

For the right personality type, this doctor is a great find. Women who seek a doctor that is quick, efficient and deal with personal topics in a non-emotional manner will love this doctor. For those who need a doctor that will respond emotionally and inquizative will be disappointed here. Dr. Nitkin is very knowledgable, up to date and accurate judge of character. His staff is experienced and polite but not overly helpful as overwhelmed with tasks and swiftness of appointments. The office is surprisingly clean (compared with most other doctors who accept Medicaid) with an attempt to make the rooms less sterile: low lighting, wall paper, pictures of flowers, etc. Tip 1: you can only get results in person by appointment. If this does not work for you, find a different doctor. Tip 2: Appointments start at noon, with several people scheduled at same time, so first to show up/put name on list goes first. And yes, often run late but in/out in 15min. So you end up on time.

My appointment with Dr. Nitkin wasn’t pleasant today. Maybe he was having a bad day. I felt Dr. Nitkin was in sensitive and insulting. I made the appointment to get my Pap smear results and to discuss my menopause symptoms. He informed me that I’m not going to feel the way that I did when I was fourteen years old. I’m a soon to be 59 year old woman who had a total hysterectomy in 2014. I’m very much aware that I’m not going to feel that way I used to. The other remark was the reason that I’m suffering from menopause is because I’m fat. I consider Dr. Nitkin to be a great doctor, but I feel he can be a little more sympathetic when his patients try to explain their medical issues.

I love Dr. Nitkin! He's super funny and charming. You would assume that going to see a gynecologist might be a little uncomfortable for you but Dr. Nitkin is so friendly and makes you feel comfortable. He is very professional and knows his stuff! If I could give 10 stars I sure would!

Overall, Dr Leon Nitkin was friendly and put me at ease. However, I didn't feel very good about the visit after leaving his office. - This might be just me, but a nurse was present during the consultation, which made me uncomfortable. She just stood there while I was asked personal questions, and even when the doctor examined me. I thought it was invasive. - The nurses, doctor, woman at the front desk, all spoke in Russian in front of me which I thought was quite rude. - My doctor spent more time telling me a story about a previous patient (which sounded like a soap opera) than trying to help respond to my questions or offer me a potential treatment. I felt disregarded. He also kept calling me "sweetie". - Towards the end of the consultation, Dr Nitkin answered the phone while I was still in his office, speaking with him. He said he needed to take it, and that I should see myself out (in the middle of our conversation). So I had to awkwardly gather my things, and was given a thumbs up when I tried to say goodbye and ask another question. I've never had that kind of thing happen to me with a doctor before. Very puzzling.

Dr. Nitkin is an excellent doctor. Sometimes you are seen in a reasonable amount of time but sometimes it's a long wait. It seems that everyone is booked at the same time so everyone comes at the same time. If they used zocdoc along with real offline booking everyone will be happy. Lol. He is worth the wait though.

I went to him for a second opinion and while I loved him, I was not exact keen about his u/s tech. She was a bit rude. He however, was extremely helpful and made some awesome suggestions. He may have saved me from an unnecessary surgery. I just know that a wack staff can bring an amazing doctor down and therefore the jury is out on whether I will make him my GYN.

This is the worst doctor that I have ever been to. I was pregnant and was having a miscarriage. The woman doing the sonogram was nice and professional. The doctor on the other hand was horrible. I was waiting to go into his office. A couple went in first to the adjoining procedure room. The nurse then advised me to come in also to his office. That was a red flag because I'm pretty sure the previous couple could hear what was going to be said. The door to where they were wasn't even closed. He tells me the results to the test that I was pregnant and indeed was having a miscarriage. Then he says that I could come in the next day to "get this over with". He spoke to me like I was a child (I'm 25). He told his nurse "schedule this teenager for tomorrow at the other location" Excuse me? WHAT?! Then I asked about prenatal vitamins because I was trying to get pregnant and he tells me those are garbage, what you can do is lose 30 pounds because skinny women have better pregnancies and chubbier ones do not. Mind you.. I weigh 145 and am 5'0. He also said whoever tried to get you pregnant didn't do a good job. The couple in the other room heard everything he was saying to me, I have never been so embarrassed in my life. He was completely out of line and I would not recommend anyone to go here.

I got to the appointment on time. I was told there would be a wait time because the doctor had come in late. When I walk into the waiting room there are six patients still waiting to be seen. I wish someone had called me before I travelled so far to get here on time. Receptionist was rude and curt . I will be looking for another Dr.

The doctor had no idea what a fem cap was (a cervical cap) ignored my requests to be measured and told me to get the smallest size ( which would have failed). He recommended I use an instead menstrual cup as barrier protection birth control, which is not its intended use and does not work. Wanted to give me a PAP (even though one was done 6 months ago) and ULTRASOUND (for what?) and then sent me out quickly with a prescription for birth control pills (which i told him i didn't want ) and the fem cap which he had to google online. Also wrote "GOOD GIRL" on my chart and preceded to tell me all these facts about birth control pills which I was not interested in hearing.

Honestly i always go to hospitals for ob/gyn, but i had to see a Doc that same day. Me searching the internet looked up walk in clinics. I found Zoc Doc i made my appointment online and filled out my paperwork online with no problem. Once i get there it was about 10:45, the very professional receptionist told me that the doc gets there at 12 noon that is there schedule, so i was like ok im in Downtown Brooklyn im going to do some SHOPPING! lol. So many years of me going to Downtown BK and never knew about this place and it was right when you come out the train. When i get back to the office i fill out paper work because i never been there before, i waited until he called me he was EXCELLENT. I wish that i would of known about him. He is honest: He tells me that the birth control shot is not good for anyone because later on it could create cancers in your body, it makes you gain weight, etc. He was insightful, gave me tons of information that he printed out from his computer, again i say doctors don't usually do that, this man cares ???????????? Most doctors don't care and say its ok just for the money. When i go in the office it doesnt seem like much but never judge a book by its cover this is a very intelligent Doctor. I loved him! Most places you have to wait for an ultrasound for another day but they have there own ultrasound tech that he could ask for an ultrasound whenever he wants that same day, more offices should be run like this. Definitely not going to be my last time, he is my new Doc lol. Thanks Dr.Nitkin From: Raquel R.
