Verified Patient Reviews
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 to get 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 and concerns 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 to 10 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.
She was amazing, informative and I? recommend her!
Office is well run and the staff efficient. Dr Gurwitz is very knowledgeable and professional.
Short wait time, very friendly nurse, warm and inviting environment, and the doctor was in my room only 5 minutes after I was escorted to the exam room. I highly recommend her! I was in and out in 30 min.
Very professional and answers questions With honesty ....
Dr. Gurwitz is an amazing doctor. I would not go to anyone else. She is always interested in your concerns and has an informed answer.
I was seen BEFORE my appointment time. I really appreciate that they value my time. Wonderful, professional, and very nice staff.
I had a great appointment with Dr. Gurwitz, I've been seeing her for years and she has always treated me well and given me great advice.
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 to see 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.
She was very kind, an excellent listner and very help.
Friendly staff and doctor. Saw me right away and nurse/doc was informative. I recommend this doctor.
Minimal wait to see the doctor. Exam was professional, but quick (which is much appreciated).
I have known Dr. Gurwitz for 21 years. She delivered my oldest daughter 21 years ago on March 19 when she was on call for Dr Wendell Schorlemer. She is now my Ob/Gyn since his passing. She is a wonderful and caring Dr!
Very pleasant visit. Dr. Gurwitz is very professional and answered all my questions and concerns. Highly recommend!
Great doctor! Have been going to her for years.
Open minded and accommodating to patient's requests. Would recommend her.
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 in her 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 did not do an exam. Just sent me home with birthcontrol.
My appointment was great! The staff is very friendly and efficient and I like the individual attention Dr. Gurwitz gives her patients. Highly recommend!
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 first to complain. The young girl that checked me out was ruder than the girl at the reception window upon arrival.
She had to deliver some potentially bad news and cut to the chance. Which I liked.
I've been seeing Dr. Gurwitz for roughly 18 years. She has also been professional. It has always been easy to get an appointment.
Facility seems kind of cold, front desk personnel not very welcoming. Nurse was great.
Considering these appointments are never fun add in surviving Stage 3 breast cancer and every visit is nerve wracking for me Dr. Gurwitz makes it easy. I appreciate the gentle nature and get down to the facts approach. Get me in and get me out! That is the perfect doctors appointment; when is the last time that happened to you?
Professional and thorough
She is an awesome doctor.
Great. She's been my doctor for almost 20 years.
Always prompt. Takes time to ask of any issues or questions.
Quick and thorough
The Doctor and staff were efficient, answered my questions, and met all my expectations. I found them to be pleasant and I would recommend this Doctor to others, because for a routine appointment I just need to be able to get in, get checked out, and leave, My experience with this doctor met all my expectations.
Always a wonderful experience.
Visit was quick and efficient.
Very quick and thorough
Courteous and insightful!
Very professional and personable. Takes time and listens. Kind and caring manner. Definitely recommend her!
It's always efficient and the doctor's assistant is very nice and thorough.
I've been going to Dr. Gurwitz for several years now and would definitely recommend her. Her staff is also a delight.
It was fast got out and went back to my day
I think she is a wonderful person/Doctor....I highly recommend her.
could have been a little more personable. She got in and got out.
Dr. Gurwitz has been my gyn for many years. She is efficient and kind. Her office staff is professional. I have recommended many of my friends to her. Donna G
I liked her. Dr. Gurwitz is very professional. That is what I want. Get it done. Don't need a bunch of chit chat. Tell me what I need know and everyone moves on with their day.
This office is nice. It's also owns key , friendly . She is professional with a great bedside manner
She is not personable at all and acted as if I was wasting her time. She didn't seem to care about why I was there or my medical history. The office staff and nurses are the very opposite, always pleasant and friendly.
Dr. Gurwitz was awesome she made me feel very comfortable
Very quick but also always addresses any of my concerns. Best part is this location has lab and radiology services so I'm not driving place to place to get things done. Also, hardly any wait to see MD.
She's very cold and unpleasant. Although I have seen her for many years, each time it seems she doesn't remember my medical history. It's as if she doesn't even glance at my chart before going into the examination room.I will not be returning with this doctor.
I've been coming to Dr Gurwitz for about three years just for annuals. I usually am in and out pretty quickly but I think I am going to find another doctor. She is not very personable and I thought I was just expecting too much but after this last time, I think I am ready to find someone who shows more interest and is more willing to thoroughly answer my questions.
She was very patient and took the time to answer all the questions I had for her. It's my second time getting my annual exam with her & I'll continue to go back :)
professional, pleasant, fast, willing to listen
I arrived early and was seen at least 10 minutes prior to my visit which was great. The visit itself was very quick and to the point, which is always appreciated. Dr. Gurwitz answered my every question and addressed any concerns very well. She's great!
I'd delayed going to an obgyn for way too long. This was my very first visit and now I feel silly for procrastinating so long. The visit was quick and pleasant. Received great info on mirena from Dr Gurwitz as well.
friendly with very much professionalism
She was very informative and refreshing definitely has a gentle personality. Her services were quick and easy.absolutely love this office!
I was about 15 minutes early for the appointment and they took me in early, too! Dr. Gurwitz is very professional and competent and answers all questions asked.
it was ok
Quick efficient. No nonsense.
It was quick very routine. Dr Gurwitz was pleasant. I have seen her before no problems.
Dr. Gurwitz is very professional and accommodating. My Mother and I both go to her and she as well as the entire staff is awesome!
I like her because she keeps it real. She looks after your best interests, answers all questions and doesn't rush you. Plus she always has new hot celebrities posted on the ceiling to distract you. Today was Mark Wahlberg & Ryan Gosling!
Very knowledgeable and professional.
Dr. Gurwitz was friendly and cheerful during my visit. This was a yearly check up and was handled efficiently. I had a couple of questions ready which she answered confidently. Actually, my first visit last year seemed a little rushed and impersonal for a first visit but both times it seemed only half an hour from signing in to walking out, which is refreshing! Even though I am moving, I may keep her as my gynecologist and come back in the summer for the annual exam!
Excellent Doctor: professional, knowledgeable, courteous, great bedside manner, on time. She's the best.
Great vist. Very professional and all of my questions were answered.
Friendly staff and Dr. Hurwitz was nice and fast service .
The staff was very nice, patient and made me feel comfortable.
For the last 16 yearsI have seen Dr. Gurwitz and I would not change that. She is a very professional phhysician who tells you things the way they are and she doesn't beat around the bush to answer your questions.
Love Dr. Gurwitz! She is thorough, efficient, and very personable--always willing to spend as much time as you need to answer your questions and address any concerns.
Everything went smoothly. The online check in helped to make this an easy visit.
She is wonderful, it took me a while to find someone with a beautiful personality. I am very pleased.
i never have a hard time getting an appointment and she is a great Dr.
Couple of recommendations for the clinic: Please provide tissue after annual pap smear. Also, consider providing a feminine pad or pantyliner after endometrial biopsy.
Dr Gurwitz was very quick, patient, and thorough. Her staff were all so kind and professional. They all made you feel very comfortable! I would highly recommend Dr Gurwitz and her staff!
The doctor was great her staff was also very helpful and quick.
It was a 1st visit for teen girl; bedside manner less than expected
This was my second visit with Dr. Gurwitz. She is professional and not very personal. She was hasty during the appointment and it made me feel like I couldn't ask questions or have a discussion with her. She never sat or presented herself comfortably.
I've been a patient for over ten years. I have always been very satisfied with the Doctor and her staff.
I was seen in a very timely manner and the whole experience was relaxed and efficient and fairly quick.
Dr. Gurwitz is great, professional, knowledgeable, not chatty in obviously uncomfortable situations. She gets it done very quickly and pain free.
Alot of female gyns are rough in their examination and leave you spread out on the table while they talk to you. Not so with this doctor. I appreciated her technique and consideration of such a delicate process.
The only thing i have to point out is that the front desk ladies could be a little more sympathetic and make eye contact every now and then... Dr. G and the lady who took my pressure very polite and professional.
Was the fastest Dr visit I've ever had. Didn't have to wait forever to be seen, was in n out in less than 30 minutes. I don't need a Dr to make me all warm and fuzzy and chit chat, I like to get in and get out and that's exactly what she did. I'll definitely be staying a patient.
Dr. Gurwitz office staff did not welcome me upon my arrival. I filled out the sign in form and they simply took it from me and proceeded to give me the usual forms to fill out; no hello or anything; all business. Dr. Gurwitz is pretty much the same way, she is all business, if you are looking for a Doctor who makes you feel warm and fuzzy, you won't get that here. But if you want someone who will just get down to business, then this Doctor is for you.
I've gone to Dr. Gurwitz for years for well woman exams and she's quick and no-nonsense, which has always been fine for me. However, as a Medical student who has now been around other ob/gyn doctors and realized what these appointments really should be like, especially when it involves preconception counseling, I won't be going back to her again. I'm 30, and her exact words to me were, "come back in 6 months if you're not pregnant yet, because you're 30 and we need to make sure nothing is wrong with you." Aside from that it was take vitamins and don't do the cat box. There was also no mention of when I would get my pap results or who to contact to get them. That's it. No thanks. I'll be looking for a new ob/gyn.
She has been my physician for 5 years and delivered my daughter in 2012 via c-section. She is very quick and painless with her gyn exams and is extremely nice. Some people may not respect her bedside manner because she doesn't always sugar coat- she gives facts and is to the point.... I love her and have recommended her to many friends who are now her patients!
Perfect--love a doctor that can get you in and out in a timely manner.
I love Dr. Gurwitz! She is friendly and personable and makes an uncomfortable situation bearable. I recommend her to all my female friends in need of an obgyn!
She is a kind and caring doctor. She gets you taken care of and out the door with a sense of dignity and calm.
Very professional, friendly and caring.
I read many other reviews about the visits with this doctor being very quick, which was definitely true. It wasn't a terrible appointment, but I did feel her to be very impersonal. She was in and out of the room with me in 5 minutes. I did not feel very welcomed, as this was my first time seeing her. She did not smile once and seemed like she did not want to be there. Also, she did not ask me any questions about my medical history, which most doctors do ask, even if they have seen me before. I guess she covered everything that I needed done, but I don't think I will be back to her. I'd rather have someone that seems more caring.
I've been going to her for many years and she has been great!
Quick in and out. Answered the questions I had. Provided me with a sample of my prescription, as I had already run out. Desk personnel and nurse very polite.
Office was COLD! Walls were bare and unkept. I am not used to a doctor's office looking so bland. Office staff seemed unhappy and like I was a burden to them.
Good doctor. She is straightforward and down to business. Probably not the doctor for you if you want somebody that will sit and chitchat. In my opinion, she uses her time efficiently. I can't complain that I took more time waiting on this doctor than what I saw her, since I waited for less than 10 minutes.
she got the problem fixed the 1st time....!
I've been seeing Dr. Hurwitz for many years and will continue to see her. I have recommended her to two coworkers. Love her.
Dr. Gurwitz was very kind and reassuring. She asked me several times if I had concerns or questions. She took the time to talk to me about my feelings and offered a helpful solution. Thank you, Dr. Gurwitz!
Dr. Gerwitz was wonderful both times I visited. She was quick, professional, and readily answered any questions I had. Unfortunately, her office created a bit of a nightmare for me with my insurance company. My health insurance coverage changed in between visits. No problem, right? It was easy to update the information in office prior to my appointment. The office staff filed the claim correctly w/ the current provider; however, they did not forward the new insurance information to the office where my lab work was processed, like they usually do. Hopefully, this was an isolated incident. Otherwise, Dr. Gerwitz's has some clerical issues to straighten out.
Would like a warmer and more personal feeling from office staff (less computer interaction).
I have been seeing Dr. Gurwitz for several years now. She is an excellent physician and really takes the time to listen.
she is great. very smart. she knows what she is talking about and is a very calm person. highly recommended.
Felt rushed. I also felt the questions I had that were important to me were not to her.
It was easy to schedule my appointment through ZocDoc and when I arrived at the office I was seen very quickly. The visit was very quick and to the point and my concerns weren't really addressed. I was told I needed some lab work and results from another doctor were going to be faxed. At the check-out desk I had to remind them that I needed labs and was sent to the back to find my nurse and ask. It's been two weeks and I still don't have my results. I've left messages and spoke with someone who promised a call back the next day...it never happened. Follow-up has been horrible and I'm thinking of switching doctors because of it. The office used to be great about following up, but they are really slacking. A little care and courtesy would be nice, especially when my health is concerned.
I've always liked Dr. Gurwitz. She is very professional, answers all of your questions, isn't "chatty" which to me is preferred in an OBGYN, very quick in doing procedures, even when I've had a procedure that should be painful- she makes it very fast and literally pain free. I arrived 35 mins early and they took me in at least 20 minutes before my scheduled appointment. Thank you!
I was a new patient; my long time doc had retired recently. If you want to get in and out in less than 30 minutes total, then this is the office for you. If you prefer/are used to a little more extensive exam and interaction, then you probably should look elsewhere. I also did not find the staff to be particularly professional in either appearance or demeanor and the office itself looked tired and worn.
Doctor was pleasant and attentive.
Catering to the older woman, this doctor is a serious, no-nonsense kind of gal with a "just-the-facts-ma'am" demeanor. She is very gentle but to the point. She skips the annual thyroid check and does just the basics during the annual appointment, which was worrisome but means my total visit from walk in to walk out was only 15 minutes!! That was quick!
Dr. Gurwitz is a great doctor. I came in with several medical concerns and she had a solution to them all without pushing medications. I really like that. I would refer all my friends to her.
Very professional, quick, and polite about the entire visit. She gave me good information without overwhelming me...Would definitely recommend.
Didnt wait long at all. Just moved to the area and while the appointment was quick and painless I prefer my GYNO to be a bit more warm and personable. Didnt ask any more questions that what she was I guess required to ask. I went in for a pap but was possibly pregnant and she didnt take the time to ask about symptoms etc. just was a quick in and out appointment.
She is an excellent doctor!!! I would highly recommend her.
Good. She is nice and gets to the point, when I had a question..helpful.. I'm in and out, just the way I like it. Staff is friendly.
Wonderful! She was very professional, attentive, and caring. This was my first visit, and I will definitely return.
She was not very warm and asked no real health questions. Very perfunctry
I like how much the office uses technology for appointments and communication with patients. That is really great. I also really liked Dr. Gurwitz. I was only dismayed at how long I waited -- Will see what it's like on average the more I see her. I had a 9:30 appointment (arrived at 9:15) and didn't get called back until after 10am. I waited longer than the time I was with the doctor. So I hope that improves because I liked her!
Dr. Gurwitz is great!
I will not recommend. I will be looking for another Dr
She's professional and ontime. Love it!
it was fast and easy
Dr. Gurwitz was professional in every way. She told me what she was gonna do before the exam, and did just that. I was nervous about the whole pap smear thing because it was my first and Dr. Gurwitz made me feel comfortable. I would recommend her to anyone that needs a great a respectful GYN.
My visit was great!! The nurse was really friendly. Dr. Gurwitz and her nurse and office staff made me feel really comfortable during the visit! She was really professional and kind. Which is really important when you are feeling nervous. You never know what to expect. I didn't have to wait at all and it was really easy. I will go back to her and refer others as well.
I got to my appointment a little early, so they were able to see me basically as soon I as I got there and signed in. I waited for mayb 10-15 minutes.
Don't go to this clinic.
She was very nice and professional, quick and precise.
Dr. Gurwitz is very knowledgeable and professional. I will definitely be back,.
Timely and professional. You can't beat that!
Dr. Gurwitz was very professional and pleasant. However I felt very bad for her that she has to work with her front office staff. They are the most unpleasant Dr.'s office staff I ever encountered.
I was in and out of her office in less than 30 minutes. No wait time at all.
Overall went well! she was nice and knew what she was doing
She was excellent! I have been receiving OBGYN services for over 35 years and she is the best. She was professional, the exam was PAIN FREE and there was no waiting. It took longer for me to un-dress and re-dressed, than it took for the entire exam. If you are looking for a GOOD OBGYN doctor, she is it!
I have never had a doctor visit experience such as this. I was very comfortable and felt welcomed immediately upon entering the office. And for a pap-annual?! Wow! I am so glad I found you. I have already told my friends about you and hope to continue seeing you for all of my lady needs in the future.
My visit met my personal and medical needs--annual exam!
Dr. Gurwitz is fast and thorough. She makes sure you are doing o.k., performs the exam and you're done. I was in and out of her office in 30 mins. She makes an uncomfortable exam quick and easy and NOT so un-comfortable, which is appreciated.
