I think I have been seeing dr Gavonovich for about 10 years. There is barely any waiting if at all. She is always upbeat, friendly and warm. . She listens carefully and does not forget what u tell her. She explains everything and gives you her honest opinion. We are a team dedicated to my health and healthcare. Her staff is the best as well. They are expert at what they do, also friendly and supportive. I enjoy visiting dr G's office. I am always relaxed and comfortable no matter what

I recently got a physical with Dr. Gafanovich for the first time and she and her team were really great. I hate needles and can't help but freak out, and the nurses really helped me get through it. The doctor also referred me to great specialists in the neighborhood for other things I needed to discuss.

I have a crippling fear of needles and unfortunately needed multiple travel vaccinations for an upcoming trip out of the country. Dr. Gafanovich is a pro! She was done before I even noticed she had started. Great sense of humor, great bedside manner.

Quick and efficient – went for travel vaccinations and medication. Had to have a physical done before seeing Marina, however, I was in and out in less than an hour. The office is a little outdated, but the staff was friendly and helpful.

She took the time to explain. She was attentive and listened. Too many doctors today make you feel like you're on an assembly line, and you get to see the actual doctor for about 90 seconds. Dr. Gafanovich is NOT like that; she takes here time with you until you get all the information you need.

Do not go to this doctor. I went as part of an annual physical and they performed multiple tests without A. letting me know they were doing so and B. that they would not be covered by my insurance as party of a typical annual physical exam (I would not have agreed to them if I knew they were being performed). They then purposefully coded other tests that would normally be covered by insurance with a code that left them not covered as part of an annual physical under the Affordable Care Act. I've had a five-month back and forth with this doctor's office and their billing department (and so has my insurance company) and they have refused to change their coding or comply with my insurance company to correct their wrongdoing and have these tests be properly covered. My insurance company broker said it was the most deceitful case she's ever come across, and a blatant attempt to take more money from the patient.

Went very well. At first I didn't know what to expect. They put me through a number of tests as a new patient before I saw the doctor. Once I asked what the tests were for, then was told. All good. And was nice to know how my heart, circulation and lungs were doing. Once I met the doc she was very nice and explained everything and answered all my questions. Gave me referrals for a couple of other things that were bugging me. Staff was also very nice. One opportunity for improvement: I would say that it would have been better to tee it up and set the agenda upfront a bit more with me, so that I had a better idea of what to expect before they started executing on the tests. I'm sure if I called ahead and asked upfront directly I would have gotten my answers, so I would recommend doing that. But I was glad to be able to get a report on how my body's doing as it's been awhile. And was a nice relief to get at least half of the results right there in the doc's office. They tested circulation, lungs, heart, blood sugar, thyroid, cholesterol, etc. So I would say pretty thorough. I would definitely go back.

Very professional. She makes you feel well cared and explains everything. If you are a new patient, she will ask you to make a whole check-up - which I think is good.

I visited Dr Gafanovich for immunizations before a trip. I told her I was concerned about costs and she explained to me what vaccines were necessary and which were optional/most cost effective which I really appreciated.

Dr. Gafanovich was wonderful! Extremely professional while warm and considerate. Addressed my issues and explained everything...clearly. Not an alarmist which was very appreciated since I am the very worst...most anxious patient. I would be remiss if I did not mention her staff. The ladies at the reception desk were very courteous,pleasant, helpful and professional. The medical assistant was wonderful also..professional, pleasant and informative. She took the time to answer my questions regarding the tests that were to be performed. The office contacted me the next day regarding blood work, emailed my results and received instruction from the doctor. I highly recommend Dr. Gafanovich and staff. They made a anxiety driven experience much easier to handle. Thanks to all

Today was my first time seeing Dr Gafanovich. She was very thorough in her screening as a new patient. She took her time to get to know me, my past (and family) medical history as well as hear my current concerns. She not only listened to me but shared a lot of information regarding my concerns as well as my medical history.
