Bathroom was down the hall and not very clean for urine sample so initial impression wasn’t great. But the doctor herself was lovely

Very professional, knowledgeable and had a great bedside manner. I liked her a lot. Hard to find a good, experienced physician you can trust in nyc. She’s great.

I unfortunately had an unpleasant visit. The specifics are too personal to get into, and span the time of 2-3 appointments. Her attitude was rude and cold, and I was left feeling she did not provide the correct doctor-patient support. Iwish my experience had been better, but instead left me searching for a new doctor. I ended up going to Planned Parenthood instead, which treated me and my partner with the utmost respect and support, which unfortunately Dr. Betancourt did not provide.

Dr. Bentacourt was very sweet!!! She was extremely knowledgeable and gentle, as well as professional and compassionate. My appointment felt very brief, however— I have the feeling she had many appointments and was trying to go fast. The receptionists were so sweet and helpful. All things considered, a great visit!

I rarely write reviews but ever time I have been here the secretaries are extremely rude and unprofessional. Dr. Betancourt is very nice but I will not be returning because of how the secretaries have treated me for moths (both in person & on the phone).

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.
