The facilities were very outdated. This was an immediate turn-off for me. Unlikely that I'll return. The front desk staff is very nice though.

Love it here, first time and they treat you right away, directly to the point. Love the fact that the blood work is done upstairs and you don’t have to travel far. They are really friendly and outgoing.

I got an appointment the same day, the staff is very friendly, but the office is a little old and needs work. She gave me antibiotics for my sinus infection, referred me to a specialist which I need it. Dr. Gorbovitskytakes her time to listen and ask a lot of questions. Again, the waiting area and the consultation room needs some work, but the location is very convenient right next to Tuff, and she is very knowledgeable and friendly.

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.

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 seenafter 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!!!

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 hereagain but it's a good backup option since it was easy to find an appointment.

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 theroot of my issue and it was not resolved. Terrible manners - would not recommend her to anyone and would never go back. Waste of time.

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 verykind 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!

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 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 shewas just as attentive and thorough as during the first visit. Would definitely recommend!

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 phonebecause 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.

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 verysupportive 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 yourselfthe trip. Booked another appointment with another doctor right after I walked out of her office.
