One of the best experiences I've ever had at a doctor's office! I was pretty anxious for the appointment, but Dr. Kupkowski was incredibly understanding and empathetic. Going to the doctor is never something anyone looks forward to, but Dr.Kupkowski definitely made it the best it could possibly be. Can't recommend him highly enough!

The office made a mistake with booking my appointment (they booked me for the week after my confirmed Zocdoc appointment). No effort was made to see me that day and I was forced to reschedule at a later date even though I had moved my work schedule around that appointment.

It took 1 1/2 hours altogether. I was with the dr about 10 min, and with the bloodwork guy 5 min, so a lot of excess time waiting around.

Dr. Gamez thoroughly listened to my needs and anticipated my follow up questions. I was taken seriously and was met with empathy to accompany her knowledgable advice. I've never been more impressed with any other office, from the hospitalityof the admin staff to the efficiency and professionalism of every medical assistant. I felt comfortable and important, and even got to be seen early! Thank you so much, you've floored my expectations.

Dr. Kupkowski is one of the best doctors I have ever seen. He was not in a rush, and he was incredibly calm as I talked through the issues I was having. I could tell he genuinely cared about me asa patient, which is something I believe all doctors should strive for. And it was my first time seeing him!

I read through patient reviews on ZocDoc pretty extensively before choosing Dr. Kupkowski, who is unanimously a 5-star doctor. I'm really glad I chose to see Dr. K; he's everything the reviews said he was. Very intuitive, really listens, takeshis time with you, and diligently assesses circumstances before just sending you off with a prescription. That said, there has also been some negative feedback about the wait time... I guess I lucked out, because I was seen right away. It makes sense, however, that there's a long wait-time, since he doesn't rush his patients and really ensures that their appointments are quality ones.
