Verified Patient Reviews
I enjoyed meeting Dr. Boruk and was pleasantly surprised by her attention-to-detail, the depth of her questions, and her thorough explanation of my condition and possible solutions. I really appreciated that she took her time and didn't rush the consultation. She also wrote down a treatment plan and her analysis of my condition, which was helpful and reassuring.
The facility is nice and Dr. Boruk was very caring and informative. Thanks to the reviews online, I made the right choice to schedule my visit with Dr. Boruk.
The doctor was good but the reception was too rude. I don't think I will be returning.
Dr. Marina was very nice and informative.
The visit was very professional, informative and thorough.
Dr. Boruk showed that she was invested in my issues. She was supportive and attentive. Displayed an attitude of caring and compassion that is a rare thing to find these days. I did not feel rushed at all.
I didn't like her, she was more worried about me than my daughter who was supposed to be seen.
Very thorough, and answered all of my questions. Highly recommend to other patients.
Top notch, very professional and excellent staff.
The staff is professional, and she is knowledgable. But she is not thorough, and didn't investigate the cause of my problem with tinnitus. Also there is a window to the corridor in the room where you do the hearing test, which is quite distracting.
Great doctor and great team. Thanks.
Dr Boruk was fine, but I waited an hour with no explanation. And in the treatment rooms the computers displayed the office schedule, with patient names and conditions, no sign in screen for staff. I was left alone in rooms with unsecured patient info twice. They also don't secure their medications - bottles and equipment sitting out everywhere, again, when patients are being left alone with them. I've never seen anything like it!
She was very professional and to the point
She was very through with my ears....sadly due to another patient emergency i ended up waiting very long. I would go again because she seems to know what she is doing.
She was direct, factual, didn't waste time and made sure I was aware of all my options.
She's an amazing and knowledgable doctor -- and best yet, she cured my sinus and allergy issues. Since seeing her, I'm healthier!
The doctor was thorough, clear with instructions, I did not feel rushed in anyway. Wrote things down for me so when I got home I would remember them.
Very knowledgeable and thorough And. very nice person including medical assistants
Very nice doctor. Helpful, knowledgeable, efficient and caring.
Dr. Boruk was kind and listened to my concerns, didn't seem rushed. Was thorough and compassionate
Thorough! Got the job done but it wasn't easy. Ears are delicate things.
Wow! Honestly, the greatest doctor visit ever! Dr. Boruk is relaxed, knowledgeable, and professional and the same can be said about the staff. Each staff member that I encountered was courteous, calm, and a few even told jokes. It was a very easy-going experience. I feel very positive about my follow-up!
The wait time was awful (1hr45m). When I asked the nurse how much longer she thought it would be she seemed annoyed that I was even asking. I liked the doctor, but she staff seemed not that great.
Very caring, very detailed and comforting. Answered all my questions patiently. Recommend her!
She was very knowledgeable, professional, and very nice.
Even though I was a relatively last-minute patient, I was seen in a relatively short time. The doctor is very professional and warm, too.
Dr. Boruk was outstanding, answered all of my questions, and didn't rush me one bit. Only bad part of the experience was waiting over an hour past my appointment time to be seen, without any apology or explanation once they called my name.
Very nice and knowledgeable doctor.
Very well run office and fantastic doctor.
Dr. Marina Boruk was informative and carefully assessed the provided symptoms and provided concise suggestions on how to move forward on next steps in dealing with the causes. I appreciated Dr. Marina Boruk her professionalism. However, the front end staffer was a bit rude and when I told her I confirmed my appointment on Zocdoc, she made it seem as if I just walked-in and I had to show her my confirmation via my cell phone for reference. Other than that, the experience was excellent.
Great visit, super helpful and friendly staff, and Dr. Boruk addressed my problems in a quick, deliberate, and professional manner.
This is one of the most disorganized offices I've ever experienced. I waited weeks for the team to schedule a CT scan recommended by Dr. Boruk, and when I checked in after two weeks I got a very curt reply explaining that it takes a long time to get approval from the insurance company (though my insurance company doesn't require approval for CT scans). I called back five weeks after the original appointment and was told: "There's a note here that someone called you to schedule the scan yourself." I explained that, even though they had the right number, I never received this call. I called to schedule my CT scan and was told that I needed further verification from Dr. Boruk, which never came. The office said they would call and schedule it themselves and give me a call back, which never happened. I confirmed multiple times that they had the right phone number, and they never got back to me. After the five weeks, I never received a bill, but after my check-in five weeks later, I got one two days later. Had I not called, they wouldn't even have charged me for the original visit. Save your time, and save your money, and find a different ENT. Only headaches here.
Loved her very sweet and professional knows her stuff and she takes her time with you no rushing you out of the office the staff was also very friendly and professional
Dr Baruk was truly excellent. She was caring, informative and completely professional.
I had two terrible visits with Dr. Marina Boruk. I booked appointments because of her great reviews and her experience. But, it was simply the worst medical visit I have ever had! Her office is incredibly disorganized and slow. Both appointments I waited for over an hour before being seen. I found Dr. Marina Boruk condescending and rude. She was not thorough - rushed me out quickly without a proper examination, or providing proper instructions of where and how to get my blood drawn. Overall she not very helpful and I will not be returning. Bad energy. I would never never never recommend her to anyone.
She was very knowledgeable and took the time to explaining things!
I was amazed at how well equipped she is and with the large number of patients she has- she must be very popular. I would surely recommend her to anyone who asks.
The doc was great, but it took 45 minutes to see her (including paperwork and vitals)
The receptionist at this office was very rude and I generally felt very anxious about the lack of professionalism in the office. I noticed that they double-booked my appointment time so myself and another patient were racing to fill out forms so we could be seen first. I also had filled out the entire medical history and checked in when I made my original appointment, which they confirmed and then had to reschedule, and they did not have this information in the office so I needed to fill everything out in person.
Great experience she is very knowledgeable and showed great intrest for her patients. Highly recommended ent
She was friendly, methodical and gentle.
My visit went perfectly well. The office on 6th ave was clean and comfortable. The staff I met were professional and attentive. Dr. Boruk carefully explained her diagnosis, and was patient while I asked questions. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
She Was Great
This is the best ENT doctor.She answer all my questions with explanation what we need to do step by step. I've been seeing 3 ENT doctors before and no one could've tell me what is going on with me.
She is very attentive and polite.
Nice...she made me feel comfortable after having a bad experience with a previous ENT. She was patient and understanding, And informative in regards to my issue.
She was very friendly and helpful and she explained everything step by step in a professional way....I would highly recommend her.
I had a 4:00pm appointment, but I showed up an hour earlier. I was seen a couple minutes after 4:00pm and left at 4:30. Dr. Boruk was extremely patient, kind, sweet and very attentive. There was a first year medical student in the room as well, and he was very attentive and cool as well. She explained everything to me, allowed to me to feel what she felt, explained what may be causing my symptoms and even showed me YouTube videos of what she was talking about. She definitely knew exactly what she was talking about and she had helpful solutions to preventing any damage. I would recommend her to anybody who wants quality care. She is definitely one of the best. Her nurses are also very sweet and the entire office stay was very homely. Enjoyed the appointment, haha. Thanks a lot, Dr. Boruk :)!
Dr. Boruk is amazing ! I This was my first time seeing dr. Boruk , I was so nerves and stress at first but she made sure to smile and be so nice and calm . I highly recommend! Moreover , all the stuff was actually very very nice and friendly .
Dr. Boruk addressed all my concerns and explained things clearly in lay terms, identifying immediate next steps and longer-term plans.
Everyone was very polite and was able to get me in an out with the highest quality care
She was so lovely, professional but kind. She explained the circumstances so clearly and gave realistic solutions. Really great woman and so were the rest of the staff at the hospital :)
It was good. Much better than I expected from Downstate
Fast and honest
good and professional
She really cares about her patients! She was great!
The doctor seemed good and everyone in the office was nice. But the wait was very long. After consultation, I needed a screening, the technicians were not there--so that was another wait-- after the screening the Dr had a question about the tech's notes-- but again the tech was not there. Even so, the atmosphere was pleasant because the people were very nice.
Dr Boruk is great. She was patient and knowledgeable. She took the time to listen to my concerns and calmed my fears. Highly recommend her.
Good visit, pretty thorough, reasonably prompt. Dr. Boruk is straightforward, and the friendly staff seems competent. They suggest, but don't push, electives.
It went well! I would recommend her!
The doctor is nice and thorough but I waited more than an hour to see the doctor and one of the admins was not friendly at all.
Was literally a perfect visit..Dr. B lived up to her great reviews. Zocdoc came in handy
Very nice and professional
the waiting room was full of children because there is also a pediatrician there. it was pretty loud which might not be good if you are there for headache related problems.
The staff demonstrated a greal deal of professionalism. Dr. Marina Boruk took her time to explain everything in details. she is great and I definitely recommend her.
Very pleasant environment. Dr.Boruk took her time to explain. Will highly recommend.
I think that Dr.Boruk took her time, and was very through. Although, I was nervous she made everything easy! Great pick! I hope to follow up with her again soon.
Very knowledgeable and good explanations
She was very helpful and informative and overall a pleasant woman.
She's was wonderful & the procedure was painless & swift.
Dr. Boruk was very thorough and paid attention to what my problem was. I also like how she explained everything and left time for me to ask questions. I did not feel rushed at all. I also liked that she had very convenient hours (early morning) for me since the only time I had was to see her before I headed to work. The staff was also very helpful.
She was wonderful. Very thorough and explained everything she was doing throughout the procedure.
Nice person ans so qualified with kids!
She took a great deal of time to explain the causes of my symptoms, with as much detail as I could ask. I feel like she understood my concerns as well as my goals for treatment, and took them into consideration in order to work toward the same goals. I hope to count her as my go-to ENT from now on.
Dr was very attentive and listened to all the symptoms I told her about. Carefully explained my treatment and answered all of my questions.
She was a very nice lady explains everything and answers every question she was perfect with my daughter
Both Dr. Boruk and her assistant were patient, professional, warm and kind. The audiologist, additionally, was equally helpful during my hearing test. At the end of my visit, I was given advice for follow up care and an appointment later in the year to serve as a check up. I would highly recommend Dr. Boruk and thank her for the time that she spent with me as a patient. My problem was pretty simple to solve, but I could not have treated myself! Thanking this office again and wishing all a Happy New Year!
Doctor was very informative. Staff was great too.
Dr. Boruk has been great in helping me get better!
She was great! Very informative and gave great advice!
Good bedside manners. Not rushed and explained everything before and after doing it. Invited questions. Made me feel extremely relaxed.
Prior to coming into the office, I had filled out all forms on zocdoc.com. When I arrived, the receptionist didn't know what she was doing and asked me to re-fill out all forms. The waiting area is extremely small and the office is chaotic. Dr. Boruk has good bed-side manners. However, during the exam she just scraped the inside of my ear and left a part of her tool in my ear. She obviously forgot about it until I questioned her, and she realized that a part of her tool is missing. She gave me ear drops for my problem but it did not solve my problem. On top of this, I received a bill recently and she charged an astronomical amount of money just for going into the office. I understand that I have a deductible but I cannot justify paying over a few hundred for stepping foot into the office. I would not recommend going to this office or for seeing this doctor.
Lovely lady. good work.
Great experience. .!! Easy to talk to, professional and friendly. Went in to see her for a second opinion and I'm so glad I did.
The doctor was calm, professional, considerate and had a very soothing effect on me. I had a terrible burning ear infection that really hurt, and I had lost most of my hearing abilities in my left ear. I was nervous about what might happen and how severe it was. Dr. Boruk, calmly asked me questions, looked at the documents and pictures I brought to show her, and checked everything out. She suctioned my ear, gave me strong meds and I feel a million times better. I can hear again! Hallelu!
She had a pleasant attitude, patiently listened to all my questions, and gave thorough explanations. She examined me carefully and is knowledgeable in her field. I felt comfortable throughout the whole visit, and I'll definitely be keeping her as my ENT doctor. Highly recommend.
Good Doctor! Thank you!;)))
A total waste of time! The office is disorganized and the staff are not helpful or polite. I went for a follow up appointment to get allergy tests. I had to make the appointment one month in advance since the doctor is only at that ONE LOCATION FOR ALLERGY TESTS ONCE A MONTH. Today I arrived to find out that they booked me for the wrong type of appointment and I should have been notified that she did not have any of the needed supplies for allergy tests. She then said I would have to go to two separate locations to get blood tests and a cat scan that I would then have to notify the doctor of and make an appointment to bring the tests back. Why would I see this doctor when I can go to one that has all the needed supplies and facilities in one location?! A total waste of my time.
Dr. Boruk is very polite and professional.
Marina was very kind and took the time to answer all my questions. The wait time in the office, after I had completed all the necessary paperwork, was less than 10 minutes.
She was very professional and very nice.
Incredible. She's a real professional. Really took the time to explain everything clearly and gave me a lot of good weight loss tips as well. I look forward to seeing her again soon!
She is excellent.
Dr. Boruk is wonderful. She's warm, welcoming, and very efficient. I made an appt. with her, because I needed to have a hearing test done, and also wanted to see if I had any wax buildup, that might've been effecting my hearing. After quickly, but thoroughly going over my history, and checking my ears, one of the nurses took me to another room, and (yet again) quickly, but thoroughly, administered a hearing test. The entire visit lasted no longer than 45 mins, and every person, working there, that I interacted with was kind and courteous. In the future, should I require an Ear, Nose, & Throat doctor, I will certainly be returning to see Dr. Boruk.
She is thorough and professional. Her staff is friendly and helpful. The office is clean and inviting. It's just the long awkward corridor to get to her that's strange.
Dr. Boruk was amazing !! My 5yr old son let her remove a bead from his ear with minor fuss ... she knew how to speak to him to keep him calm and let him touch some of her tools. I would recommend Dr. Boruk to anyone !!
