Waited 45 minutes past my appointment time to be seen for 5 minutes. Doctor wasn’t thorough at all. I went in thinking I had a sinus infection and they didn’t even take my temperature. I’m sure they’re fine for a physical but not for sick visits.

I would not recommend this doctor's office. The office did not seem clean. The "nurse" or "dr's assistant" did not understand English very well and was completely unable to communicate. I felt like they were pushing services I did not need. And they they billed my insurance company incorrectly - I went in for a travel consultation - they billed it as a physical. Would not go here again.

Pretty standard check up, though they seemed a little bit uncoordinated while I was there (different people would pop their head in without coming in to do anything, and I wasn't asked about some things I have been by other doctors, e.g. number of drinks per week, number of caffeinated beverages per day).

Her staff and the Doctor were incredibly relaxed but professional. They explained what would be happening during my exam and guided me through each step. I had samples taken and the staff were so skilled, the blood sample was barely noticeable! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a Upper East Side office :)

I need pre-op testing done immediately and found Dr. Gafanovich on -line, so was not sure what to expect. I got a same day appointment, had all of the necessary tests, and a very thorough history and physical. The process was extremely well organized and efficient, and the staff were all competent and pleasant. I could not have had a better experience. By the way, I was an executive in a hospital system for 30 years, so I can tell a good practice from a bad one.

My appointment was scheduled for the afternoon and I received a call a few hours before asking me to come in ASAP. I did, and had to wait. The second time I booked with this doctor I made an appointment for 3 pm, and they emailed me telling me to come in at 8 am or another day. When I called to find out why, I was met with rude reception who failed to answer my questions. I won't be going back.

Got an appt right away!!!! Entire team professional and caring. Dr. G was empathic and thorough. Provided all the tests needed on the premises. Bloodwork, urinalysys, and other which was helpful. Didn’t have to tun around to labs, etc. Gave referrals and booked an appointment for Warm. Caring. Felt I was in good hands.

I have to say Jasmine was an incredible nurse. I’m terrible with blood work and she ensured I was comfortable and relaxed. She was extremely professional. The doctor was very thorough and very understanding. Great experience overall.. could use some organization up front but nothing terrible.

I respect her judgement and would highly recommend her. i never had an annual physical that was so thorough.My husband now sees her as well and is very happy.

Dr. Gafanovich is extremely professional. Her entire staff makes the process go by seamlessly. From the moment you walk in the the moment you walk out you're always being attended to, so that an entire appt takes 30/45 min (literally, I walked in at 9:30 and walked out at 10:15). Plus, they work very well with your insurance and any providers to make sure everything is coded correctly. Would highly recommend for a no-nonsense Dr who can answer any and all questions you may have.

Had a wonderful first visit with Dr. Gafanovich. No-nonsense but also personable and knowledgable. In particular, her nurse was phenomenal. Despite being down some staff members and totally busy, she took blood without me knowing it had even happened (really!), was so friendly and put me totally at ease. Very happy to have found this practice.
