Overall quick visit. The initial paperwork had questions that I hadn't seen any previous doctors asked, and I wondered why not, they seemed relevant and necessary. Much appreciated. Dr. Betancourt was kind and informative. She also had very warm hands, which is always much appreciated.

Dr. Maria is the most amazing doctor. I searched through ZocDoc for about a month for a OBGYN and after a long search I came across her profile. I did hesitate but I still schedule my appointment. I can in today a bit nervous but after meeting her talking to her I couldn’t be happier. She made me feel comfortable. She explain the procedure she was good to do with me during my visit. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. She’s very caring and she listens to any questions you might have. Her entire staff is friendly. Very welcoming. 5 Star Doctor.

I had been appointed to dr. Betancourt only once out of a few times I visited her practice, but all my experiences were great. The nurses and front desk were always very helpful. However, if you are pregnant or planning pregnancy, this practice doesn’t have their own sonogram equipment, which is inconvenient if you can’t get an appointment elsewhere on the day you need it done, or if you have to wait for results to come in and schedule a follow up... it becomes impractical.

Honestly I have never felt more uncomfortable - I have never experienced pain or discomfort during my annual appointment or colposcopy and I did both time I visited Dr. Betancourt. She was not gentle and when I told her the tools she used were hurting me she did nothing to adjust or help the discomfort. It was honestly a traumatizing experience, and I have never felt this way before when attending other OBGYN offices.

I don't like that they make you go down the hall to provide the urine sample, instead of the perfectly good bathroom they have in the office.

My appointment was to see Dr. Maria Betancourt, but instead of that they made me be seeing by another Dr. Rahela, she is a good Dr. But she was not the Dr. That I was looking for, and at the front desk they never told me about it and I thought that Dr. Rahela was the nurse that's why i didn't said a word. So is not a bad review just make sure you are going to be seeing by the doctor you want.

Brisk and to the point. I didn't have a complex issue and was in and out quickly. I'd be a little hesitant to recommend this physician if you have ongoing health issues since the office is utilitarian and they cannot perform certain procedures in-house.
