The wait time was fast and it was a quick appointment, which is great. However, the doctor made me feel like I was wasting her time and that my symptoms didn't matter. I was asked no medical history and it seemedlike the only reason she actually examined me was so I would leave. I was really excited to come to a place for women's health (as my last visit at another center went horrible) and this just made me lose a little more faith in medical professionals.

I was excited to see Dr. Gurwitz as a new patient, but she entered the room looking angry, with no smile. I almost asked her why she had such a hostile looking expression. She introduced herself and although professional, she hadno bedside manner. It wasn't until the end of the visit that she finally smiled a little bit, but I felt very unwelcomed as a new patient and probably will not return to her office. If she was having a bad morning, it definitely showed. I was very disappointed in her demeanor. I think she really needs to think if she's happy in her practice.

Dr. Gurwitz is friendly and cheerful. She answered my questions and she recommended a prescription to help strengthen my bones. I got a text from my online pharmacy that the drug had been ordered within a couple of hours. I wasin and out of the office in 18 minutes! I did not feel rushed because I was seen immediately and she did what she needed to do and answered my questions!

Dr Gurwitz is a terrific doctor. She delivered my oldest daughter 22 years ago and I just took her to Dr Gurwitz for her first Gyn appt. My appt was at 10:30 and my daughter's was at 9:30. We were bothfinished and out of there by 10:30. My daughter loved her as much as I do!

Dr. Gurwitz was very cold and less gentle than I would have liked in her examination. I think she spent about 4 minutes with me. Her tone was unfriendly and her body language made it clear that she just wanted toget out of there. The office staff were all great, but I was really unimpressed by the doctor. Did not seem to care at all.

Dr. Gurwitz is incredibly quick and efficient. I had some concerns about my medication, we took care of those first before anything else. My entire appointment was about 15 minutes. Even with the short appointment, I felt like my questions andconcerns had been addressed. Since she's not incredibly chatty, you won't be prompted to remember questions you may have forgotten during the course of a conversation. So make sure you tell the intake nurse everything you want to discuss and she will let Dr. Gurwitz know so you don't miss anything in your appointment.

My appointment was at 3pm and I got there early just Incase there was a wait. I came in and immediately was able to check in and give all my information. I would say my total wait time was close to10 minutes. The nurse called me back to do my vitals and she was really nice and pleasant. Directly after I got escorted to an exam room where I was instructed to get ready for the doctor. Within 3 minutes Dr. Gurwitz was in the room and going over my history/ performing my exam and talking about other concerns. I was out of my appointment before 330... totally impressed and so far I’m glad I chose her practice.

I was seen within 5 minutes after turning in my paperwork confirming my information! The front desk receptionist was courteous. Once I went to the back, the physician assistant was friendly and professional. Within a few minutes I went in tosee the doctor. Once she came in, I was out the door within 15 minutes. It was very efficient and I was able to go back to work in a timely manner. Everyone was professional, efficient and courteous. Dr. Gurwitz is a good listener, reassuring and very knowledgeable.

Dr. Gurwitz and her staff are competent and efficient, which is important to me. I did not have to wait long. She is an introvert and not very chatty, but when I ask her questions she is thorough and caring inher responses. Once I begin a conversation with her, she opens up and talks more freely. My prior doctor was very outgoing and nurturing, and Dr. Gurwitz took a little getting used to because her style is so different. But I trust her skills and her judgment, and I have developed a good relationship with her.

Dr. Gurwitz is wonderful along with her assistant. The girls in the reception area need an attitude adjustment. Very rude and not personable at all. A shame something isn't done. As I can see from other reviews, I'm not the firstto complain. The young girl that checked me out was ruder than the girl at the reception window upon arrival.
