The wait time was more than half hour. I am assuming that is because I was a new patient. The front desk staff and MA was courteous and the doctor was the same, she listened attentively, she gave me goodadvice and her best plan of treatment. She made me feel confident in her abilities.

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 rushthe consultation. She also wrote down a treatment plan and her analysis of my condition, which was helpful and reassuring.

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.

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 withunsecured 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!

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 avery 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.

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 explainingthat 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.

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.

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 appointmentsI 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.

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.

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 formsso 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.
