Dr. Betancourt was a breath of fresh air. In the past, I've had long waiting times in waiting rooms/examination rooms and poor bedside manner. This was not the case here. I probably waited about 10 minutes in the waiting room and then another 5 in the examination room. Dr. Betancourt was friendly, and informative, and helped answer some questions I had. I was searching for a new gynecologist (this is my 3rd one in 4 years) and I'm very happy to finally find someone that meets my needs.

Dr. Betancourt was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. This was my first doctor's visit since moving to New York so I was nervous. However, she made me feel extremely comfortable and answered any questions that I had. She was also informative in regards to certain predispositions that run in my family and how to prevent them. She was great and I will definitely be returning.

I have been long searching for a OBGYN. Today was my first appointment with Dr. Betancourt and she was great! She is very professional and easy to talk to. She answered all of my dumb questions. I didn't feel rushed like you so often do with doctors in New York. The office was packed but I got in right away. All of the support staff was warm and knowledgable. By the time I got back to my office my prescriptions had been called in and were being processed. My only criticism is that the office was a little run down. But given the high traffic they clearly have it's very understandable.

I went to Dr. Betancourt for my annual exam and decided to also ask her about some stomach issues I had been having and if they could possibly be related to endemetriosis. She was completely dismissive of my concerns and did not dicuss any other possibilities or possible remedies - the "conversation" lasted about 1.5 minutes. She then begrudgingly wrote me a referall to get a sonogram. During this visit, she did no additional testing and only a bare bones exam (did not exam breasts, stomach, etc). She then had her office code my appointment differently because I asked her about other concerns while I was there and she does not feel this qualifies as a "wellness exam." She should make sure future patients know they are not allowed to ask questions during their exam or fear being charged for "additional services." I highly recommend finding another doctor to go to.

I had a horrible experience at this office. They performed tests that I did not ask for. Then, I received a bill for those tests and I was unaware that they were performed. I had to deal with the lab and it turns out the office had written my insurance information down incorrectly. When I called the office and explained my frustrations they were unapologetic (I had to call three times, left two voicemails and no one ever called me back). I was extremely disappointed with how Dr. Betancourt and her office staff handled the situation and needless to say This was by far the worst experience I have ever had with a Doctor's office to date. I will never return to this office nor could I ever recommend her to another patient.

My overall visit with Dr. Betancourt was easy and proficient. I had an early 8AM appointment, so there was no wait to see the doctor. Although the employees and doctor we accommodating and pleasant, I will not return to this office. I found the patient room to be very dirty and not well kept. I would not feel comfortable returning to the office because it is not fully sanitary. However for a one time, emergency visit it was fine.

En general el tiempo de espera es muy corto. La enfermera amable y diligente. La Dra habla muy bien español, escucha lo que el paciente tiene que decir y me ha dado seguimiento por telefono con los asuntos relacionados a mis citas. Recomendado.
