The visit was efficient and simple. I completed my paperwork before the visit, as they request, so I was able to see the doctor as soon as I walked in the door.

Dr. Betancourt was so kind. She apologized for my wait time and walked me through the whole exam. She was efficient in sending over my medications to my pharmacy and they were ready within an hour. The nurse who took myBP wasn’t the friendliest, but the front desk girls were helpful and kind, the office was clean, the tv had a funny movie on and the waiting room was stocked with a Keurig and many coffees/teas to choose from. Overall, the experience was as pleasant as getting a well-woman exam could be, and I’d highly recommend Dr. Betancourt for her kindness and her calm demeanor!

Dr. Betancourt was kind and attentive. She coached me through the pap smear which was one of the reasons I left my previous OBGYN as they did not talk me through this sensitive procedure. Dr. Betancourt also had advice to offerfor an ongoing issue that no one else has ever brought up before. Her office staff is okay, not as great as Dr. Betancourt. The nurse who took my vitals seemed in a rush and frustrated/upset. I also really like the online patient portal they provide which gives me access to my health information in an organized and helpful manner.

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 todaya 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 toolsshe 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.

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 frontdesk 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.
