Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Gorbovitsky is an extremely nice woman. She does a great job at giving you the information directly without dancing around the point.
I really liked her! She made me feel at home. She is also an expert in her field. Trust her 100%.
She’s amazing. Thanks for changing my life.
Overall an enjoyable visit
Very professional and knowledgeable
She was very professional and nice enough. Just a bit awkward to talk to - that could have been a bit because her accent wasn't always easy to understand.
Great visit! The doctor was right on time for my appointment. Very knowledgeable and efficient - she was able to get me an xray and even took the time to look at the results with me within 30 minutes!
Dr.. G has excellent bedside manner and made me feel very comfortable while giving me a thorough exam and addressing my questions and concerns. Her staff is professional, helpful, and efficient. I had a positive and productive experience. Thank you.
I think she is very patient.
She was very attentive to my questions and made me feel comfortable through a Pap smear. She made an effort to connect me to other doctors and ensure that all my needs were met.
Professional and personable. I feel very comfortable and well taken care of by Dr. G.
Front staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and Dr. Maria was very up front with her professional opinion and plans going forward, which I greatly appreciate. Very nice, easy, quick visit.
She was very thorough and made very sure I was well before sending me on my way. She was great!
An interesting an experience to say the least
Dr. Gorbovitsky was awesome! She saw me quickly, asked good questions, and took care of all the paperwork I needed for school. Thank you Dr.!
The place looks dirty, she barely speaks english so it was hard to understand, she ran out of robes and lube... overall awful experience
Dr. Maria was nice enough and I was able to get the prescription I needed. The office was a bit dingy with an extremely overheated exam room (very unhealthy!) and a stuffy, cramped waiting area. I probably wouldn't come back here again but it's a good backup option since it was easy to find an appointment.
Great doctor. Highly recommend.
She didn't take time to listen - so quick to want to refill a prescription or write me a note to get out of work - neither of which I wanted. My purpose of the appointment was to get to the root of my issue and it was not resolved. Terrible manners - would not recommend her to anyone and would never go back. Waste of time.
Doctor Gotbovitsky was really nice an patient. She found out my disease right after I told her my symptoms. I would recommend her.
Dr. Gorbovitsky was awesome! My appointment went really well and I felt comfortable to communicate thoroughly with the doctor. All of my needs were met and I left feeing confident that my health was in good hands. The doctor was very kind and knowledgeable which helped me to remain calm in ease my nerves during the quick procedure completed at my appointment. Normally, I am verg anxious at any doctors appointment but from the front desk on, everyone was very professional and friendly, making for a much less stressful appointment. Definitely recommend this office and Dr. Gorbkvitsky!
She gave me referrals for outside specialists and never sent the correct information to the next facility. Then when I called to let her know that I was at an appointment and was not going to be able to be seen after taking the day off from work, she hung on me !!! Never again will I return. She didn't even take my injuries seriously, thinking I wanted only narcotics I'm sure! I have a pretty lengthy history of bad legs and never again will I return! This was not my 1st experience with ZocDoc and I really wish I could still see my same doctor from before!! These were very important referrals and now I have to wait who knows how long till I can get in again thru someone else! I waited almost 2 months for this appointment and now another 2 I'll have to wait I'm sure!! NEVER AGAIN!!!
I am new to the Boston area, so I was very pleased with how polite and efficient the receptionists were and how promptly Dr. Maria saw me. She was SO friendly and quick, too- but made a point to welcome me to the city. Overall, nothing negative to report!
Efficient, thorough, willing to prescribe antibiotics that effectively treated my reason for visit. She also offered quick and convenient referral for specialist outside of her practice. Maria was friendly, made me feel comfortable and has a large network within Tufts medical center and MGH.
Dr. Gorbovitsky has great bedside manner. She spent quality time with me. I didn't feel rushed. She asked many questions in order to understand my situation and come up with the best treatment plan for me. I would definitely recommend Dr. Gorbovitsky to my friends and family.
Dr. Gorbovitsky was very pleasant, listened to what I had to say, and made sure to have a discussion about anything I didn't understand. In addition, I had to run in for an emergency appointment a few days later, and she was just as attentive and thorough as during the first visit. Would definitely recommend!
I could tell Dr. Gorbitovsky wanted the best for me- she was so warm and welcoming! And she helped me get everything done in no time at all:)
Knowledgeable, easy to talk to and has a very good sense and understanding of the ironies and humor present in being a human being.
Dr. Gorbovisky was incredibly helpful. She obviously knows what she is doing. After the visit, however, she has been very hard to get a hold of by phone.
I would highly recommend Dr. Gorbovifsky. She's such a nice and caring person. She learns and gives really good advises. And the clinic is so clean and friendly.
Dr. Gorbovitsky has been a wonderful primary care doctor. I was only seeing her for a few months when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. She made sure I got the best care available. She and her staff Kasya were very supportive throughout the process. Some people will probably say offhand that she is abrupt just because of her accent but she is a very caring and attentive doctor.
This doctor's visit was the worst. Dr Maria is rude, and her answers are redundant. Didn't answer any of my worries instead answered rudely with assumptions. Suggested I take a blood test when I had just eaten. VERY unprofessional, save yourself the trip. Booked another appointment with another doctor right after I walked out of her office.
I loved her! She is so friendly, efficient and told me everything I needed to know about referrals and my insurance. She was very thorough and answered all my questions. So happy I found her!
I was very pleased with my appointment with Dr. Maria. She saw me right on time and she was very kind, capable, and supportive of my medical needs. I just moved to the Boston area and I will definitely be using her as my GP.
She was really lovely, competent and kind. Would definitely return and recommend.
This was my first time visiting Dr. Gorbovitsky's office. Not only was the front desk associate incredibly kind, welcoming, and helpful, but the doctor herself was super personable and easy to get along with. Conversation during my visit with her was comfortable and fluid. Dr. Gorbovitsky suggested additional things to check up on, knowing this was my first physical in a while. I was late to my appointment and still was greeted with much accommodation and genuine courtesy!
One of the worst experiences I've had with a medical professional. Please look elsewhere!
She was one of the first doctors who actually listened to me and trusted my story. I was grateful to have met her and she called with my results quickly
I have seen Dr. Gorbovitsky several times over the past year. Getting an appointment is easy, and I have never had to wait more that 15 minutes.
Doesn't explain anything. Doesn't listen well to patient, doesn't have time to listen to all of your concerns and very rude.
Dr. Maria is a very nice lady and made sure that I was taken care of. I just couldn't understand her and what she was saying and the office wasn't in the best condition or what I was expecting. Nice receptionist and easy access, just not sure if I'll go again to her.
It was great. I am blessed to have an experienced , compassionate physician like Dr. Gorbovitsky.
Very professional and consultative.
Dr. Gorbovitsky is great, would highly recommend her.
Doctor was great. Good listener, responsive, very good bedside manner. Highly recommend.
Doctor Gorbovitsky is a knowledgeable and compassionate physician. I highly recommend her to every one who look for such a brilliant physician.
A very nice and easy going doctor. Made me feel comfortable, held conversation when necessary, and clearly iterated the steps we would take after my check-up. Overall a very solid experience.
I was terrified and thankful my appointment was for nothing more than an injury that only required a quick prescription. The receptionist was on a personal call the entire time even when talking with me, the office and exam area was filthy and even had an old crash cart that was broken in it next to the exam table. Another patient walked into my exam to talk to the doctor. I really couldn't believe the situation.
She was very thorough and very kind, which made me feel very comfortable. I got in very fast as well!
She is the best! Compassionate and thorough !
The nicest doctor ever
I needed to see a doctor and couldn't get an appointment with anybody else. Dr. Gorbovitsy had availability - and now I understand way! This Doctor does not have a good bedside manner. She's quite dismissive and spends more time cutting you off than listening. Definitely not the type of doctor I'd want as my go-to GP. However, as a last resort, where you just need a prescription or want to request a specific test, she's fine. The fact that she's connected to Tufts is a bonus in this regard. Her secretary is really warm and friendly which did somewhat offset the rather unsettling doctor's consultation. Still, a nice secretary will not be enough to make me return in the future.
They don't accept credit cards as payment. Because of my plan I use a prepaid card to pay for a certain portion of my health needs for the year and then they cover the rest. It's a huge hassle for me to not pay by card so I won't be returning.
She is very kind and approachable!
Very nice and professional. She took a good amount of time with me and listened to everything I said. I will definitely see Dr. Gorbovitsky again. Also. I needed labwork and the lab is right upstairs so didn't have to make another appointment, it's such a pain when you have to go elsewhere on another day for labwork, totally seamless here.
Nice and smart. Absolutely understands your finance situation.
She was lovely and such a sweetheart. Her assistant was also wonderful and kind.
She was amazing! Kind, understanding, knowledgable and took her time with me. She even had a good sense of humor. Really great experience.
Dr. Gorbovitsky is great!
Dr. Gorbovitsky is so nice and caring, I came in late and she still saw me and were patient with me
Kind and gentle!
20 min wait but the doctor was very efficient once I was in the room. Sent prescriptions straight to the pharmacy and performed a strep test within minutes.
Very professional, polite, and nice.
Very Rude and judgmental! She is now refusing to refill my important prescriptions that I have been getting for years until I come in for a physical even though I explained that I am travelling and unable to come in. I would never recommenced this doctor.
Dr. Gorbovitsky is very warm and did her best to make me feel at ease during a procedure that was not very fun. She also seems to show an interest in my overall health picture (making note of other medications and conditions not relevant to the current appointment), which seems obvious but not all doctors do this.
Doctor Gorbovitsky was great!
Dr. Gorbovitsky took care of all the issues I needed taken care of, I just didnt feel completely understood or heard. Her medical advice was fine, but she is not the type of doctor I could have a comfortable relationship with.
Dr. Gorbovitsky is wonderful. Highly recommended.
She is very nice.
She was not a good listener. She kept asking questions without waiting for responses. Moreover their office accepts only cash or check.. Really!? I didnt see her degrees on the wall except an aesthetic certificate.. The calender on the wall was way back from 2003. Overall several instances that make me question this practice.
She was very friendly, interested in my history, and made me comfortable in an uncomfortable medical situation. She is treating my root cause of my issue instead of just addressing symptoms. She also actually saw me 20 minutes early.
Dr. Maria is awesome. I've gone to her since I've been here and will continue as long as I live in Boston!
Maria is a great doctor. She was quick and attentive and thorough. The whole process was very streamlined using zocdoc. I came in, gave my insurance card, saw the doctor, got a chest x-ray, saw the doctor again and left, all within an hour.
She was very attentive, i loved her.
Very personable, organized and helpful.
Explained everything properly.
She made ms so uncomfortable. HORRIBLE experience
Dr. Gorbovitsky is a very mild mannered practitioner. I like the fact that she still does things the "old" way and she does everything herself. Location of the clinic is accessible to other facilities since it is connected to Tufts Medical Center. Staff is very helpful and courteous.
I was seen right away although I was early for my appoint Dr.Gorbivitsky is very thorough!
Dr. Maria is very approachable, warm, and talkative. She offered a lot of tips too. She's speedy and her receptionist is extremely sweet and helpful
The Doctor herself was fine. Most of the questions I filled out on ZocDoc we went over again which was slightly annoying. The worst though was when I was sent up to take xrays and had to wait an hour to get them done and when I came back with the results they thought I already left.
Dr. Maria is friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. Her receptionist is also kind/welcoming. The office does not take credit cards and the facility is older, but it's a very convenient location for workday appointments, and the staff is lovely.
Very efficient , just what I was looking for.
She was thorough and nice. She doesn't have the fanciest office or medical equipment.
Dr. Gorbovitsky was very through with asking me about my symptoms and had a great personality. She was very considerate of the fact that I made the appointment during my lunch break, so she made sure I was out in time.
Good as always.
She's very nice.
Simply put, she does everything I want from a PCP: communicates directly, nonjudgmental, thorough, and friendly. She took the time to address all of my concerns and even took my blood pressure herself, something not that many physicians do these days. I am glad I found her through this website.
Excellent! I felt very comfortable.
Loved her! I've tried out a couple different doctors in Boston and she is by far my favorite. Extremely nice, timely, and easy to talk to.
efficient and helpful. cares for patient- counsels and gives advice.
This definitely does not feel like a high end doctor's office. It took a while to get her computer booted up, it was unseemly hot and so she asked to keep the door open to the exam room. Their lab technician left at noon, which felt frustrating for anyone in the afternoon.
Wonderful Doctor. Very kind and professional, made me feel very comfortable.
Bad and not professional.
She is very good and professional. Initially she can come across as harsh but it's just the accent, she is a sweetheart!
I saw Dr. Gorbovitsky for a routine physical and well-woman exam. She was professional and made me feel very comfortable. She was thorough and the staff was friendly. I would recommend her to anyone who is new to the area and looking to find a reliable doctor.
Sweet professional doctor , and the sweetest secretary kesha , they wer so professional with me and my husband and caring when he was so sick specially when his blood pressure was low and almost fainted they ran - the doctor and her secretary - and got him something to eat and a cup of tea , they wer so sweet and caring ??
Dr. Maria was awesome. Definitely keeping her as my primary care doctor.
Very attentive receptionist and Dr. Gorbovistky gave a very thorough examination.
Great doctor. Very caring, knowledgable, and helpful.
Mr.Maria is wonderful! She's very kind and made me very comfortable asking her questions and talking about my health. I plan to make her my PCP after only one visit.
Awesome. Def will go back to her. Seamless, professional, friendly, and caring.
She was rude, and commented about my weight (which was very healthy). She did a pap smear, and her manner was extremely uncomfortable. I had a specialist call her for a referral once, and she screamed at them over the phone because I hadn't done my annual physical yet that year. She also tried to force me to get on birth control pills, when I said I was perfectly happy with my method. Terrible doctor. Her office staff wasn't too friendly and didn't seem to understand English. I never went back after my initial couple of visits.
She is a great Doctor and always puts your mind at ease. Is very thorough when it comes to your case, will ask you if previous issues have been resolved. I enjoy my experience in her office. Her assistant Kasha is also great, very delightful and professional. I would highly recommend Dr. Gorbovitsky.
She was fantastic. Thanks!!
She is very nice and welcoming,
she is very welcoming, professional and friendly. I was very comfortable around her.
I am thankful to have finally found such a wonderful Doctor!
Dr. Gorbovitsky was efficient with my visit, maybe a little abrupt. I was just there for a referral, so maybe this is why, but she didn't let me say too much about why I was there before deciding on the referral.
She and her receptionist, Katia, are always wonderful. They're both very sweet and have genuine concern for the patients.
Dr. Gorbovitsky was generally a friendly woman, but was very disrespectful of my medical history. She seemed to be mocking me at times and made me feel very uncomfortable disclosing any further information to her. I left feeling very insulted and will never go back.
I like Dr. Gorbovitsky and her staff. I am scheduled for a follow-up in 1 month. I would like it if her practice modernized a bit as they were not able to take my flexible spending card for payment.
It was excellent, as was the one before this. She asks good questions to be informed of your situation
I was amazed that Dr. Gorbovitsky complete the entire exam herself! She has a very kind and helpful receptionist, but no medical assistant. I was so comfortable with her and only wish I had started seeing her sooner.
Dr Gorbovitsky is a nice woman with a sense of humor but she did not make me feel at ease during my examinations and I always felt a little out of sorts when I went there.
Very nice, goes out of her way to make sure you feel comfortable regardless of the procedure.
She was wonderful. I actually changed my PCP to her because I had such a good visit.
I needed a physical to begin a new job and chose Dr. Gorbovitsky through ZocDoc. The experience was less than pleasant. Not only was she judgmental when I spoke with her, but she became testy with me after my height was written down incorrectly on the medical form. Then, during the appointment, she grabbed hold of some extra skin at my side, pulled it, and told me I needed to lose weight. I prefer doctors who are straightforward, but she was blunt to the point of rudeness.
Dr. Gorbovitsky is very professional and kind. She converses with you and asks whats bothering you. She isn't the kind of doctor to prescribe something for the heck of it. She also made me aware of other issues known to occur with people of my age and gender. She is also very reassuring. All in all I think she is great and I would highly recommend her.
I would definitely recommend Dr. Gorbovitsky, she is a nice doctor who has seen me on short notice on multiple occasions
Great visit. Very attentive and through. Highly reccommended.
very quick precise with her instruction and communication.
Not very approachable.
Dr. G is very friendly and professional. She diagnosed my problem very quickly and accurately, and made sure to answer any and all of my questions. And contrary to the other reviews on this site, you do not have to be Russian to receive extraordinary service.
Dr. Gorbovitsky was kind and professional.
Dr. Gorbovistsky was friendly and very easy to talk to. She was genuinely wanted to get a better understanding of me and my medical history. Her receptionist was extremely helpful is getting me set up and working through minor issues that I had with my insurance.
Very knowledgeable and helpful.
This was my first time with Dr. Gorbovitsky, and I was very pleased with my visit. I got there early and she was able to take me right away. She answered all my questions, and was very nice.
The whole experience was great and I have already made some future appointments with Dr. Maria. She and the staff she has working are all friendly and extremely helpful. She did not hesitate to get me the blood work and x-rays that I needed. And to help me make an appointment with a specialist she referred. Great experience. Great doctor. Highly recommended!
