Verified Patient Reviews
Dr A is lovely and very friendly. She gives you time to express concerns but isn't overly proactive. She does a good exam and will refer you out for other services but doesn't seem to be a strong diagnoser. The office staff is competent but not overly friendly. The nurse I had today was rushed and spoke too fast and was hard to understand. I get they say the same thing to every patient multiple times a day but they need to slow down. I only visit once a year so need your instructions to be clear and not rushed.
Questionable hygiene in the examination room. Dusty equipment and dirty floors. The doctor took not time to provide information, but seemed to be happy to rush out of the door notifying me that next time I will be seeing one of her colleagues. My total visit took 2.5 hours due to waiting time and multiple standard pregnancy tests. I really do not feel like coming back and will look for another doctor.
Great physician! Would recommend to family and friends.
Very professional. Great bedside manner.
Everything was very straight forward and quick.
Dr. Abeshaus is very caring and thorough.
She was very helpful and understanding. When my first choice of contraceptives did not work and I steering towards another choice, Dr. Abeshaus recommended another choice better suited for meeting my standards of protection.
I have been going to Lisa for all 4 years while living in Jersey It has been a great experience. The office is beautiful and the staff professional
She is very plasent and a great listener ,always ready to explain any question I may have
I felt so comfortable when I first met her, that I kept calling her Lisa, instead of Dr. Great eye contact, listened carefully and confirmed my diagnosis. She was also pleased to learn that ZocDoc was so very helpful.
Dr. A. has a lovely disposition and put me at ease right away. I was very comfortable with her and will continue to refer her to friends and family.
This was my first visit with Dr Abeshaus but I felt very comfortable.
I was excited because of the great reviews, but I felt she was rushed, cold, and judgmental. Definitely won't be going back. :(
Quick easy and informative.
Dr. Abeshaus is so kind, I love seeing her. She is quick and gentle and remembers (or writes down) personal discussions from past visits. When I discuss concerns with her she listens carefully and solves the problem right away, taking my desires into consideration. Highly recommend.
Follow-up afterwards was nearly impossible
Great first visit. Easy to talk to, not rushed, very pleasant.
She is the perfect doctor, she really cares about your well being and her staff is very friendly and professional. I only sat down for 5 /6 minutes and was called and and was down with my annual appointment within 30/35 mins including the waitin for the doctor,exam, pee test and blood work...So they are really awesome!!
I was very happy with Dr. Abeshaus and the staff. I would recommend this office..
I had a good experience , the Dr. Abeshaus inspired much confident, her patience to hear all health problems made me feel confortable.
Dr. Abeshaus made me feel at ease; I am often very nervous just before a gynecological exam, and she was very comforting.
She is very nice and will explain anything
She made me feel comfortable and at ease.I will be coming to her again in the future. If you or someone you know is nervous about seeing a "female doctor," this is the doctor to go to. She made it seem so casual. I left feeling happy I visited with this doctor.
Dr Abeshaus is not only professional and knowledgeable, but easy to talk to. I can raise any questions without feeling uncomfortable, and her answers are clear and understandable (no need for a medical degree!). I recommend her highly.
Dr. Abeshaus was friendly, knowledgable and efficient, and so was her staff. I went for an annual exam and was in and out within 45 minutes. I highly recommend her and her team.
I was very much impressed. I was seen on time. I love my new Dr. She showed concern for my Health. I think I will be very Happy here. The Staff was also pleasant. I was in and out, but not rushed.
Highly recommend - quick, gentle and informative!
Nothing but good things to say about my visit. I was brought into the exam room within minutes of checking in, before I even finished my paperwork. The nurse who took my vitals was very pleasant and efficient. After changing into the robe, I waited about 90 seconds before Dr. Abeshaus came in. She was pleasant and personable, asking me about my summer plans, but was also very fast and efficient with the actual exam itself. She inquired after various aspects of my health and listened carefully to my replies. She gave me plenty of time to talk about whatever I wanted to talk about while also keeping the appointment itself quick and painless. I'll never go to another gyno!
The doctor and the nurse were very helpful and nice, and the staff was nice. However, the waiting time was a little longer than I expected. I waited about 20-25 min. The office was very confusing to find. If the staff has told me about how to get there from the parking lot, it would've been helpful. Overall good.
She was quick and efficient. She made me comfortable mentally and physically.
Very professional, asked questions & made me feel comfortable.
lisa is great and easy going.. love her nice touch
Great doctor! Was through and explained everything to me. She answered all my questions and was very professional. It was a super easy and relaxed appointment.
They are very professional and friendly and also dont waste anytime. Dr.Abeshaus is very helpful and all about your best interest.
I absolutely love Dr. Abeshaus! Her and the staff were very friendly, accommodating and calming. The office was beautiful and very clean. The wait was minimal and I would highly recommend her to anyone!
Very professional, confident and Friendly.
Very professional and helpful. Office staff was nice as well.
the doctor was very professional, friendly and made me feel comfortable.
waited no more than 5min. didnt even have time to check out my email on my phone...2nd time seen by the doctor and nothing but positive experience and she is very gentle. love her
Lisa is the best OBGYN I've ever had. She takes the time to listen and resolve any issues!
My appointment went well. Very little wait time, probably 10 minutes at most. Dr. Abeshaus was very professional. Her bedside manner was good and she was very nice. She answered my questions and I was in and out. I would recommend her.
Great very professional and made me comfortable after the visit coz she answered all my concerns. I would love to go back next year for my annual exam.
I had a 7:00 PM appointment and was back in my car by 7:12. No wait time, I was the last patient of the evening. The exam was routine and performed quickly. If you have any concerns, you will need to bring them up to Dr. Abeshaus yourself - she will not ask you. Good if you want to be in and out and get your prescription refilled; I would not recommend if you have actual concerns.
She was professional and friendly. However the staff and the front desk did not make you feel welcome and this was my first visit. I did my paperwork on line and they loss it. The doctor was an hour late in seeing me.
Good. Clean. Comfortable.
Doctor was good and listened. Appointment got off to a rocky start but improved as I finally met with the doctor.
Dr. Abeshaus is extremely knowledgeable and patient. She answered every question I had. She is a wonderful doctor!
An excellent experience! Virtually no wait time, receptionists were nice, pleasant environment and office. The assistant and doctor Abeshaus were professional, nice and effective.
She is very friendly, welcoming, shes professional but not in the sense where you cant ask any questions. Shes very accommodating and explain everything. If she sees concerns she will let you know right away and discuss what steps she will take. If any questions or concerns she insisted to call her right away.
She is super nice and helpful. She helped me with the problem I was having.
I waited for an hour to see the MD and just spent 5 mins Max with her.
Lisa Abeshaus is always VERY nice and VERY professional! She always hears out my concerns to the fullest extent and offers only options that are in my best interest. Making an appointment with her is always a simple process and the appointment itself is always quick, easy, and care-free. Absolutely one of the best!
I was a little underwhelmed. The doctor was very professional, made me feel comfortable at my first visit. At my second visit, the nurse was very irritated that I had not enclosed the reason for my visit to the secretary who scheduled me. I felt that my privacy was not respected. At my old office, they never pushed me to share the reason for my visit with the person scheduling me over the phone. I work in the healthcare field-in a very small, boutique type office and I feel that this sort of environment is much more personal. I have seen doctors who have managed to carry this type of caring, personal, and homey practice into a larger patient base. I didn't feel that I was part of a practice, but rather visiting a "healthcare center"
Excellent, professional, great listener, regarded every concern and addressed my concerns, made suggestions and gave alternatives to surgery. Ordered necessary bloodwork right away and ultrasounds. No wait for the blood work. I feel very fortunate to have the accepted health insurance to have an excellent practice to refer others to. My spouse was impressed also.
The doctor was good for a 10 minute visit. My issue was having my evening appointment rescheduled by her office on 3 different occasions. After the final attempt to reschedule on her behalf I canceled and went elsewhere. Why offer evening appointments if it doesn't fit her schedule?
very nice and professional woman. my experience was very comfortable. I've seen obgyns who were more personable but that's a matter of personal taste. I have no complaints and will definitely be a permanent patient! Her professional manner was very pleasing to me.
Dr. Lisa seem to know what she was doing and gave me options. Will surely use her again. However her assistant on 2/20/13 needs some lessons in customer service, boy she was so abrupt, like she had better things to do with her time than to attend to you. That was my first visit there and was dreading the Dr visit, was hoping she was better than her staff & luckily she was beautiful.
Dr. Abeshaus was OK. She took a little time to listen to my concerns.....seemed a little bit rushed, but overall not bad.
quick, to the point and efficient. highly recommend!
Dr. Abeshaus was pretty straightforward and had more of a business feel to her. I do not mean this is a bad way, but if you are looking for a girlfriend kind of doctor this might not be the doctor for you. I like her though. She does not waste any time and gets right to it. For me this is good since I don’t have much time for small talk. In terms of knowledge, she seemed to really know what she was doing, and she seemed knowledgeable and experienced. I think this is a great doctor for people who just want to get things done right, but not waste any time. This was my first visit with her; perhaps I will right another review after my 3rd or 4th visit. In terms of the office, the location is a big business building. The area is nice. It is accessible by public transportation. Now for the most important part, the office itself has more of a business kind of feel to it. Sometimes when you go to a medical place it feels, filthy like you might catch something (like the ER of an hospital), Other times it feels annoying (when there is a lot of children), sometimes it can feel warm and cozy (some small practices), well this place had a business feel to it. The receptionists seemed to be quite busy; I was still helped in timely manner. The customer service could have been better, but it was just ok. I do feel I would like the reception to be a little more discrete. Like when they ask, “what are you in for?” it is too loud and they repeat what you say without lowering their voice; I personally feel is none of anybodies business why I am in and I do not need to be promoting it. So that would be the one thing I would change if I could. Other than that, I think I like the office and will keep going there.
Dr. Lisa really listened and was timely.
This is my first time visiting with Dr. Abeshaus. She was easy to talk to & was completely thorough, especially with my family history.
Thorough, friendly and answered all my questions.
Wonderful doctor (and beautiful facility in West Orange!). Very friendly, definitely put me right at ease. Not at all judgmental, very down to earth, provided lots of information. Would *definitely* recommend Dr. Abeshaus.
She was ok. It was a long wait for a 5 minute visit.
It's a good one and more comfortable this time
Dr. Abehshaus is thorough and patient, never seems rushed. She suggests a course of action and explains her reasons. She is also efficient, so the appointments don't take a long time and she is always on schedule.
Great doctor, less than friendly receptionist.
Dr. Abeshaus was a kind and caring professional. She didn't seem rushed or disconnected. Eager to answer all questions and make health care suggestions tailored to my needs. I'd highly recommend her care.
Super nice and sweet. Took time to intoduce herself and explain everything to me. Definitely will return.
