The waiting time was too long. I had an appointment for contraceptive. My appointment time was 12:10pm and I never see the doctor until 1:45pm and I was there before 12 noon.

I waited almost three hours to be seen and then he nonchalantly walked into the office apologizing for being late. I had somewhere to be which is why I scheduled my appointment early in the morning. I didn’t leave his officeuntil around 1230, my appointment was for 9am. WAY too long to be in a doctors office to only be seen for 5 minutes, IF THAT.

I was very impressed with the service(s) provided. The staff members were more than cordial during my visit as a 1st time patient. Maria was beyond excellent as I observed her interaction with other patients. I was able to experience thesame professionalism during my interaction with Maria. Dr. Ajah exhibited patience and professionalism in addition to reminding me about self-care & medical follow-ups. I appreciate being able to use Zocdoc to link with this service provider & Thank You to Dr. Ajah & his team.

Does not take the time to review patients symptoms and concerns. Worst obgyn. Diagnosed me with an illness yet he prescribed something for me that would make my illness worse. I am lucky i went to another doctor. It could have been worse.

Be advised the doctor does not come in till 10:30 zoc doc lets you book as early as 9:30 don’t lol. I was very very pleased with my visit. I was in at 9:30 and out before 12 (I booked myappointment way too early and still came out faster then I would have at my pervious gyn. Please ignore the reviews saying he’s too old straight up bullsh*t. He knew what he was doing made me feel comfortable and address all my concerns. So happy I found a gyn with reasonable wait time and such great bedside manner!

The office was a big turn off for me. It wasn't welcoming neither was the staff. Neither one of the medical assistants introduced theirselves at all didn't ask me any questions about my past history. I'm not sure if I seendr ajah because it didn't look like the picture but the physician didn't introduce his self either. I was completely turned off. The only reason I stayed was due to an emergency but I won't be returning again. Just wasn't a pleasant visit.

i hate the wait time. they literally saw me an hour after my appointment. but i love that doctor so much. i get seen by the female GYN and i love her so much. the second im in a room withher i know im safe and in good hands. so while i hate the wait time with a passion i dont want to leave. its too hard to find a doctor that takes care of you like she does.

Though The Wait Time Was Long , It Was Understandable Being That He Is A Delivering Dr .. Once It Was My Turn I Was Seen Rather Quickly The Dr Had Amazing Bedside Manor And Made Me Feel At Ease .His Staff Is Quick And Efficent And Maria At The Front Desk Was Absoultely Amazing , i Work At A Drs Office So I Know About Long Waits And Maria Was Grateful That I Was Understanding . She Went Above And Beyond To Help Me When I Had My Script Sent To The Wrong Pharmacy .. She Is Quick and Knowledgable Too , i Easily Felt As If I Had Known Her And The Dr For Years .. Good Staff , Great Office I Highly Recommend Just Be Patient Its Worth The Wait If You Want A Good Dr !

Eventhough your appointment is booked for 9am, the doctor doesn't show up until 11am so you are stuck sitting around in the waiting room for over 2 hours before you are seen! This didn't happen at my first visit because Iactually saw a female physician. However today, October 19 2016. My morning is spent being frustrated because I was told by his staff that he doesn't arrive until 11am! Beyond pissed off!

Having to go there half an hour before the doctor came first in line...then one of the workers who been sitting there talking decided to do an allergy test on me around the same time the doctor came in it took15 mins for it to be done she said it will take 10 mins....lost my spot waited for the doctor while I was continuously feeding the meter because I didn't want to get a ticket like I did the last time I was there...I ended up leaving because I spent 3 dollars in quarters had to leave because the doctor took too long....

Hello, So the first issue I had with this office was how outdated and dirty the waiting room looked. It had really turned me off. The receptionist was rude. I walked over and said good morning she literally didn't speak back.I checked in and took a seat within 10 seconds of sitting she told me to come back and give my insurance info which was so annoying! I had just sat down! She clearly needs another job because this isn't her thing! She never changed her gloves one time. She took my blood and filed paperwork with the same gloves which was disgusting. Doctor Marcell on the other hand was soooo nice and welcoming. We figured out what I needed and he was very professional. He's a great doctor that needs a new FOH staff. She is the sole reason I will never return.

I personally did not like the doctor, or the office. The doctor seemed like he did not have much knowledge about the machinery he was using. The bathroom did not look clean, the light was not working so therefore they madeyou lock the hallway door and do your business in the bathroom with the door open. Also the bathroom was unisex, and I've seen cleaner and better smelling bathrooms in the mall. I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. I read a few feedbacks before I went, saying that the waiting room smelled moldy, well I thought the whole place smelled like that. The nurses were very nice though!

The service was awful my first appointment there is had to wait over 3 hours. Once I was called upstairs I had to wait additional 45 minutes because each room was not equipped with all the equipment for an annual. Oncethe room was available my bedside manner was only 5 minutes with him telling me everything is OK you can schedule and appointment for 2 weeks for your results.. No questionnaire about nothing such as when was my last pap smear, if I ever had an STD, if I want an HIV test, or even if I want birth control all these test I had to bring up and push.. My second appointment 2 weeks later for my results I arrived 30 minutes ahead of time was the first one there and my wait time was over 2 hours for the receptionist to tell me once asked that the doctor will start seeing patients in another 20 minutes.. I grabbed my belong I ngs requested my medical record and left.. They even had the nerve to ask me if I want to reschedule I kindly said no I will find a new doctor and left..

I've had 3 appointments with him so far, the wait is ridiculous and the first time I was here he did a Pap smear for me asked me literally no questions about my sexual history and then said okay you cango. It was a 2 hour wait with a 3 minute interaction. I had to ask him to do blood work then the medical assistant stuck me FOUR TIMES just to get my veins. Then you had to have an appointment for your results. Another hour and a half wait and a one minute interaction and he tried to rush me out. I had to stop him and ask him for birth control. THEN he wrote me only a two month prescription for birth control when I thought it was 3 months. They forced me to make another appointment again here right now waiting with a filled up room for another one minute interaction just to get another prescription for birth control. Ridiculous office. Over books and terrible patient interaction.
