Good doctor very knowledgeable
It is so hard to find a good commited doctor! My experience is great!
Dr. Bourara was very knowledgeable and took time to answer my questions but stood with his back to me the majority of the time and didn't make any effort to make me feel comfortable. The office also required payment of copay in cash, which I have never heard of. My benefits from work will reimburse copays through a provided credit card, so I wasn't able to use this benefit, which was frustrating.
He's a little brisk with questions, but that may be due to my tendency to ramble. When I was keeping my responses more to the point, it was very pleasant, and I wasn't being cut off. Nevertheless, he's not a therapist, and for what I was there for, he was very helpful in answering my questions and thoroughly checking the problem out. Since it was out of his ability to help me, he recommended further options and referred a doctor nearby that possibly could. Very pleasant appointment.
Please update insurance.
I left this office crying!!! TERRIBLE I came to see Dr. Buorara because I had an abnormal high-risk pap result at my pcp's. I was looking to get a colposcopy here and/or a referal to someone who could. I got neither. Dr. Buorara didn't show any empathy or compashion to my anxiety and fear regarding my results. Instead he incremented it by saying it was "really bad" He said he would reffer me to a ginecology-oncologist and that I would hear from his desk next week regarding that. Someone called 5 days after saying the doctor couldn't recommend anyone. I waited for 70 minutes and had to experience two pregnant patients' frustration with the long wait. Sad...
It was my first vist. He took the time to ask me questions as well as answering my questions I had for him. He didn't rush the exam & he made me feel comfortable. I was totally satisfied and would highly recommend him.
Great service. Will definitely be returning to him :)
Dr Bourara is excellent, always makes me feel like I am his only patient, besides being a great OBGYN. He has a friendly and acomodating staff. The waiting time is not the best, but worth it to see a good Dr.
The wait time wasn't long and the doctor, nurses, receptionists were all really nice. I'm going to come back for more appointments.
He was great. Super polite and explained everything. Totally recommend him.
He really makes you feel like something is terribly wrong with you. Every time I leave his office he gives me a lecture on my health and makes me feel very bad about myself
Very pleasant and friendly. He understood my needs.
Doctor seemed ok just overly booked -- after 1.5 hrs i finaly got to see him. Check up was fast he adressed my concerns. I would go to him again since I felt confortable enough -
This doctor saved my life! I would recommend him to anyone very honest doctor takes his time and answers all your questions, always available and dependable
Great knowledgeable doctor
If you are an over weight female than avoid this dr as all cause, he's more concerned with your weight and bmi, Than your actual needs and health concerns, but he'll give you a gym recommendation
I found Dr Bourara to be very nice. He was very informative and took time to explain things to me.
Really want to like this doctor, he seems to be knowledgeable... but the office really needs to manage its timing. I was the second patient at the office, after waiting for 40 minutes, I asked the front desk girls how much longer am I going to Wait? The response was "he is parking outside"...
Beautiful office, friendly staff, great doctor!
Very personable, I really enjoyed the visit. 27 y/o female just went for annual pap and check up and felt very comfortable.
Very friendly environment
Wait time was about 45 minutes even though I made an appointment in advance. Very disappointed with the office treatment!
Great doctor but incredibly long wait time.. Make sure you have a couple hours to spare!
He is great and made me feel comfortable.
Dr. Mustapha Bourara is an amazing Doctor. His Staff was nice and respectful they are an amazing team. with a very clean office
A very knowledgeable and pleasant individual spends quality time with his patient
This doctor is so great, and he makes feel so comfortable. He is very professional and explains everything very well.
The best doctor and staff!
The reception office was very nice and clean, the staff was very quick to acknowledge and help me get started as I am a new patient. Once I was directed to Dr. Bourara's room, I sat in my gown for about 15 minutes. Dr. Bourara was great, there was no beating around the bush. I had questions and he had answers. I felt very comfortable with him during my exam. I will definitely be seeing him again.
Very professional and understanding and easy to talk to
Doctor was very polite and explained everything thoroughly.
Dr. Mustapha Bourara and his staff is caring very helpful thank you
I waited for two hours to be seen. Was told to get my blood drawn but the nurse couldn't find my veins so I left.
He is very good. He is also well networked with other specialists for my issue so he has a direct referral line-- like can call up his buddy-- who is the most prominent ovarian cancer specialist in the area to help monitor my care. That makes a beg difference.
This was my second time seeing him and I must say he was very polite and professional ! The staff was curtious and very friendly as well. He examined me thoroughly and answered all of my questions ! I will definitely be visiting him again in the future !
The office staff was very warm and friendly. The doctor was very friendly and made me feel at ease, but I was very upset with the way he asked about my sexual practices. After I informed him that I am not married, he asked me how old my boyfriend was. When I replied I do not have one, he seemed shocked and asked why I would be using birth control then. He apologized after noticing how offended I was, but I would advise against seeing him if you do not want to face implicit judgment for keeping your non-monogamous relationships healthy and safe.
Dr. Bourara is very funny and kind. I had never had a male OBGYN and I really like him a lot. I feel comfortable every time and when I had a concern about my birth control, he helped me over the phone.
I was very spectacle about going to a doctor just based on availability, location and acceptance of my insurance; but I was very please with him and office in all sense. He was very pleasant took his time getting to know my medical history and explained very well the reason for my current medical problem as well as explained my options. Front desk/MA's were also very sweet.
Dr. Bourara is wonderful. He is caring and very knowledgeable. He made me feel very comfortable and answered all questions that I had with patience. Thank you :)
Dr. Bourara was kind, very competent, and thorough. I appreciate his knowledge, expertise, and compassionate care. I strogly recommend him.
I LOVED my visit with Dr. Mustapha Bourara. He listened attentively and gave me answers to my weird questions. Very caring doctor.This will definitely be my ob/gyn from now ob.
The clinic was extremely clean and the staff were friendly. Dr. Bourara was very comforting and attentive to my needs.
Best Doctor you can trust!
Super nice doctor, very throrough and made sure to discuss all my concerns in detail. Will definitely be coming back. Secertary/tech also very nice and helpful.
I was so happy with this visit! Dr Bourara is so friendly, attentive, and gentle. I think I found my new OBGYN!
Dr. Bourara was very nice and made me feel comfortable. He asked me lots of questions and talked to me openly about everything. Most doctors don't bother to explain themselves but I felt that Dr. Bourara really cares about his patients and that they know and understand what is going on. The wait was a little long but I was expecting little bit of a wait since it was a Saturday morning. I am very happy to have found a great GYN in the neighborhood.
+very knowledgeable, caring, and concerned +took his time and was attentive, considerate, and thorough during examination +both doctor and nurse/receptionist were very warm, polite, and competent +office was pleasant to be in -wait was almost two hours, although the first time i went, wait was not long at all
The Dr. Is totally confident in his knowledge and what he is telling you. Dr. Bourara cares about your health and well being of your body not just take this pill. It is great to know that my body can naturally bounce back and this Dr. will help give me the push I need!
This was my first visit. I felt very comfortable with Dr. Bourara and would recommend him to anyone looking for a new doctor.
Dr. B and his staff are my all time favorite! They are kind and helpful and always leave me feeling appreciated and cared for. I am not a mother but when the time is right for me, they will be my go-to team. I highly recommend!
This dr is the best I really feel safe and I trust him very much - highly recommend !!!
I went to him after seeing a horrible doctor. It was refreshing to see someone who cared and knew so much.
I've been looking for a good gyn for years and left Dr. Bourara's office feeling that I finally found a great one. His front desk staff are in-a-very-genuine-way nice and he spent a lot of time explaining everything to me and answering my questions. I felt comfortable and that I could trust him. Will definitely go back for my annual check-up.
Great bedside manner. Usually I'm uncomfortable when leaving OB/GYN visits. But I felt comfortable from beginning all the way to the end of my visit.
Well I had been to this doctor for irregular bleeding that went away on its own. While there was no reason given for this occurrence, I was given a pap smear and told that it all looked fine. A few weeks later I was told to come back for my results. I go back and I am told that I have a stage of hpv right before cervical cancer. He doesn't tell me the strain of hpv just that I have it. He then proceeded to tell me that is why i should be having protected sex. I asked him if there was a test for hpv in men and he said no. So how is one supposed to know who is infected and who isnt? He referred me to a few places for a biopsy that didnt accept my form of payment .Finally I was referred to a woman who did the biopsy. She said she would get back results for the biopsy within 10 days. I was not notified. I assumed all was fine. I become pregnant the next month and he tells me that I should terminate so I can get another procedure that isn't 100 percent effective against hpv and/or may leave me with pregnancy complications/infertility. I have done alot of research and know people who have had children with hpv and their treatments were delayed until after birth. He did not offer me that as an alternative. He told me straight away to terminate and that was all he seemed to want to speak on. He was telling me about gardasil but I already had been vaccinated. He told me there are two main strains that causes cervical cancer 16 and 18. I asked if I had any of those strains. He went to look and said well I don't see it here and it doesn't matter because it is already in advanced stages. He proceeded to tell me success stories of the leep procedure but made me feel as though I will get cervical cancer during my pregnancy and die immediately without the procedure. He didn't seem too thorough in his testing and too much in a rush into surgery. Later on I see a lab bill where I am being charged for a test of hpv 16 and 18. I don't know what to think or believe. I will be going to another doctor for a more thorough check up and understanding of all of my options
He is awesome !!! Very nice made me feel comfortable and he's knowledgeable !!
Really friendly doctor and takes the time to listen to all your concerns. Wait time was a little long. Almost 1 hour to be seen.
Dr. Bourara made me feel very comfortable and the front desk staff was very knowledgeable and kind. I will definitely be returning for my future visits.
Just Perfect....I was nervous Booking online..But Dr.Bourara is Great..
He was extremely polite and informative and addressed all my concerns.
Made me feel very comfortable
Dr. Bourara himself was helpful and easy going and took the time to talk with me about my health history and concerns. The wait time was reasonable. However, I found it difficult to follow up on my lab results and prescriptions. FYI, The office only takes cash for co-pays.
Dr. Bourara was very attentive to my needs and was willing to have the discussion with my partner, which wasn't the case at my last OB-GYN. He offered great advice and suggestions that I will carry through and went the extra mile of providing me with specialist for the service I was seeking. I told him that I will continue seeing him as my primary OB-GYN.
The whole experience was great at the office of Dr. Bourara from the moment I entered the office. The front desk staff was friendly and efficient. Dr. Bourara was friendly, calming and caring. He took time to get to know me and make me feel comfortable. The office is very clean and inviting.
He was amazing!
It's always great going to this gyn :) .. Good vibes always, from the front desk staff to the actual visit & Dr.Bourara is awesome at what he does.
Staff and doctor and very friendly and approachable. They had me laughing while taking my blood!
Very nice looking the staff was very nice. I liked that they called me back to give me my results.
Everyone is so nice, you are feel welcomed. Thank you to all doctors.
Dr. Bourara was great and his office staff was very nice. I waited a little longer than I would've liked, but they were closing for the holiday so it was understandable.
I want to add to my previous review about the hpv and pregnancy termination. He had taken a sonogram during that visit and said that the pregnancy was in the uterus. He showed me my ovaries on the screen and the stage of my pregnancy. He then told me that if i dont decide to get a termination and I have some symptoms it maybe an ectopic pregnancy. From what I understand the pregnancy would implant itself in the fallopian tube and not make it to the uterus. When I contacted his office about the test, the receptionist kept asking the price of the test. I wasn't worried about the price ,I just wanted to know about the results as to whether I had the strain of 16 and 18 because thats what it said i was tested for. After going back and forth about his disappointment in my previous ZocDoc review ,he told me that they don't test for that because I am under 30. He then proceeded to tell me that other patients had paid even more for their test and that i should just pay the bill. I didnt have a problem (nor do i now) with the cost. I wanted to know the likelihood of cancer and my options. He proceeded to tell me it didnt matter the strain and that it will develop into cancer. He also told me that he felt god had sent me to him to save my life. I had called the laboratory and they said I was tested for it and that he had my results of the test and that I had to discuss them with him. This whole interaction has left me with little answers and depression. This is my first pregnancy and I always wanted children. I am scared that this may effect my pregnancy. I am very scared that I may encounter another doctor like this. Just a miserable experience
The wait was very long and when Dr. Bourara came into the room, I understood why. He's a very nice doctor, doesn't rush out of the room and takes time to answers your questions. Even though the wait was long, I would recommend him. Also, his staff, especially one of them, I don't remember her name, was very friendly and kind.
The office was courteous and the visit was efficient. After my appointment; however, the office called my emergency contact, instead of me, with my results. They told my emergency contact to have me call them if I wanted to discuss anything further. When I called to inquire as to why I, the patient, was not contacted, I was given no explanation. I felt this was both unprofessional and a violation of trust, therefore I will not be returning to this doctor.
Fine for a no-frills annual Pap/check-up, but dissatisfied with the doctor's demeanor. He seemed uninformed about taking a sexual history, and made a number of heteronormative assumptions about sex and sexuality that could be very off-putting and alienating for some patients.
The cash only policy is a bummer.
I really like this office. The doctor is very through and kind. Excellent bedside manner, he really listens to you. There is always a bit of a wait at this office but that's because he takes his time with patients instead of rushing you. What I like most about this office is it is seriously the ONLY doctor's office I've ever been to where the people working the front desk aren't completely snobby and rude. Everyone working their is very kind and the woman at the front desk is a doll. Definitely worth the wait to see this doctor.
Waited 1.5 hours to be seen. Bedside manner was curt and quick. Nothing special.
Very friendly and welcoming staff, and the doctor takes his time with you. Great visit.
Worst bedside manner I've encountered. Poorly trained office staff. Poor communication skills. Not recommended:
He was knowledgable, took his time, read through all my paperwork and dealt with my issue immediately. I needed to go the er and he called the doctors and wrote the referrals promptly.
Friendly Staff! Dr. Bourara was professional, and made me feel comfortable.
I am extremely happy to have met Dr. Bourara. He seemed very knowledgeable and had a great bedside manner. I never felt rushed and believed he cared about making me feel better. The only issue was the wait time but the visit made it worth it.
the girls were amazing, very friendly the doctor excellent!!!!
Dr. Bourara always takes time to answer questions and draw diagrams (if needed!). I always walk away feeling that I've been taken care of. He is patient and knowledgeable.
Dr Bourara answered all my questions. Took his time examining me made me feel very comfortable. I would definitely recommend him. The office staff were very pleasant and easy to talk to.
The staff was very friendly. Dr. Bourara was very attentive.
The doctor was very professional and very polite... the staff were extremely friendly and the office was super clean, you felt welcomed there ! Would highly recommend! I will definitely be coming again!
Beautiful office- felt like a spa! The staff was all friendly and helpful. Dr. Bourara is a great doctor.
Office staff was friendly and efficient. Doctor took the time to discuss any concerns I had.
He is a great doctor but long wait since he is busy.
He take is time with the patients very gentle.
More than prefect .. Friendly & professionally staff .. Super clean clinic .
I was really happy with my experience at Dr. Bouraras practice. He was friendly, professional and answered my questions thoroughly. I will definitely be keeping him as my gyn.
Very professional, attentive and passionate about his job. Excellent doctor and person.
Made a last minute Sat appt. My first time seeing him, always worried about what you might get with new OB/Gyn but I was pleasantly surprised. His office was clean and inviting. My only (very slight) negative might be his staff: the girls seemed a little inexperienced. But it was a Sat. Dr. B himself was excellent. I came in to confirm whether or not I'm pregnant as I'm showing a lot of symptoms but tests are coming up neg. He was very open, reassuring and asked all the right questions, was just the right amount of thorough with my medical history. I didn't feel rushed, but I didn't have to wait forever either. He took blood and could see that this has been causing me some anxiety so he told me that he would do his best to call me with results tomorrow (on Sun!) but if not, I would definitely hear from him by Mon. I was very happy with him today but his office is rather far from where I live so I don't think I'll be able to continue seeing him for anything more than my yearly checkup but I will definitely go back to him for that. He is definitely worth the hike into queens.
The office was very beautiful my boyfriend and I were very comfortable as soon as we walked in. The receptionists were very friendly. This will be my new gyn doctor forever ! I highly recommend this doctor he was very nice and attentive and got straight to the point.
The doctor was patient and informative. Women working the desk were friendly & helpful! High recommend!!
What a beautiful clinic! The décor was so refreshing instead of a depressing clinical look, it was bight and breezy. Very very clean and well organized. Dr Bourara was very professional and a genuinely nice man. I felt very comfortable in his company. He was very knowledge and reassuring. I Would encourage people to go here. I would absolutely visit here again.
It was a good experience
He has very professional, and he answered all my questions with ease. His office in Astoria is beautiful!
He was great! Bet doctor I have seen from Zoc Doc
It was very professional!...
He is always thorough and answers all my questions
I waited a while, however I was probably over 30min late for my appointment. I've always been hesitant to make GYN appointments with male doctors however Dr.Bourara's calm & professional demeanor made me comfortable with my decision. I was very satisfied with my first visit & I'm strongly considering making this my primary GYN. :)
Very nice and helpful! Answered my questions and spent a lot of time with me talking about my overall health and gave me great insight and suggestions.
My visit with Dr. Bourara was a pleasant experience. The office was very clean and modern, and smelled like lavender. I was seen approx. 10-15 minutes after my appointment time, which was completely fine with me as OBGYN's tend to have longer wait times so I was expecting it to be longer. Once in the exam room, I waited only about 5 minutes before the doctor came in. He was very hospitable, kind, and talkative which I appreciate. He asked the usual gyno questions that we've all come to expect. No big surprises there. I will definitely be seeing Dr. B when I need my next check-up.
My first visit to this office was EXCELLENT. They were attentive, patient, inquisitive about my inquiries, explicit in what they needed from me, and accommodating to certain things i needed. I'm new to the neighborhood but i think that i'll be going here for my annual for long time. =)
We had our first visit (for our first pregnancy) with Dr. Bourara. He was very pleasant, helpful and has a great bedside manner. The office staff was friendly and helpful. Our wait was short and we never felt rushed during the visit. So grateful to have Dr. Bourara as our OB!!
Very professional and personable. Listens and explains things clearly. Does not rush the visit. Genuine.
Very nice professional physician and no wait time!
It was my first visit to this office - staff was friendly, and the doctor was great!! I am going back to this office in three weeks for a follow-up appointment.
Dr. Bourara is very pleasant, and lets you know exactly what he's doing during the exam. The front desk staff were friendly girls, and the wait time was less than expected.
He was great! I have been to many gynos because I am never satisfied with them. He took his time to ask me questions about my health, answered all of my questions. He didn't make you feel as if you were another patient. Very satisfied.
Very informative and professional.
I almost walked out because the front staff were not friendly or helpful at all. They didn't even notify the doctor I was waiting until he realized one of the rooms doors was closed. I swore to myself I would never go back, but he changed that all when I met him! He is a wonderful man who takes his time to talk everything out with you. He is great and will definitely be seeing him again.
He was nice, professional and gentle. I felt comfortable and at ease the whole time. Keep in mind this office only takes cash for copays..which i wasnt aware..theres an atm not to far but had i known prior it would of made it a little easier. Other than that little snag, it was a smooth visit.
Knowledgeable with a good bedside manner; May wait a bit before your appointment, but he takes his time through the appointment to listen to and advise you regarding your concerns.
Dr. mustapha was very informative and made sure i understood everything before leaving his office. Great personality he was so nice to take the time and answer every question even my boyfriends! for that I think he is the ideal GYNO for me .
I think that was really good !
Told me I needed to lose weight. I'm a size 8.... And that's not what a GYNO is for. Was a little weird. Also made me wait 40min in that robe before I was seen. It's not summer anymore and was chilly.
Dr.Bourara is by far the best OBGYN I've ever been to, he gave me the best care while I was pregnant with my first child. would recommend him.
Good doctor but the wait time was unacceptable. I arrived on time and the doctor didn't see me until an hour and 20 minutes past my appointment time and then I told him he had to rush because I was out of quarters for the meter. He was apologetic for the way time, but the whole visit took an hour and a half and only 10 minutes of that was spent with him in the room. He's a good doctor and a nice guy but he needs to arrange his schedule better so that this doesn't happen again.
Did not use a chaperone, the speculum was just hanging there while he fumbled around- could have really used an assistant to make the process smoother if not just for the purpose of having a chaperone in the room.
He seems like a nice doctor and very knowledgable, however, I waited on the exam table for over an hour to be seen and I was the first appointment of the day. I will go back and give him another shot at my next yearly exam because the other reviews are positive, so I may have caught them on a off day, but I was not pleased with the wait time.
Most judgemental doctor I've been to. I felt extremely uncomfortable answering his questions.. He asked some which I felt were unnecessary. When I left he said "I hope next time I see you you are making better life choices"... The last place you should be concerned with judgement is from the gyno.
The atmosphere in the office is very positive. Place is very clean and peaceful. The staff is very corteous. Very reasonable waiting time. The doctor adressed my concerns and I am very sayisfied with the treatment provided.
Detailed and knowledge doctor.
Worth the waiting, a true dr.
He was great. Didn't expect him to be so casual and welcoming. And the environment was nice, bright and calm. Had to switch from my old gyno but I'm not so anxious anymore, extremely glad to know I'm in capable hands.
I started seeing Dr Bourara when I got pregnant with my first child. From the first office visit I knew the experience was different than any other doctor I had seen. He gives you his attention, walks you through everything, and will answer any questions you may have. He's held my hand every step of the way of my first pregnancy, very calming and informative.has excellent bedside manner and genuinely cares about his patients. Also, outside of his office hours he will respond to messages and answer any question, worry or concern. The staff is very kind as well and the office is so cozy - you really feel relaxed. I am glad that I can finally say I have a great gyno that I can recommend to anyone that needs one!
Very ELEGANT office, welcoming sttaf. Best care provided ever from a Physician.
Dr. Bourara is a Good doctor. . Bt not Friendly at all.. his behavior is too Rude... when you have long term Gyn problem you're not supposed to get this kind of Rough Behavior. .it's not Satisfactory. . Besides that He is good to Analyze the problem.. Tries to help the patient. But Always in a hurry to Close even their processing was late, not the patient. . Over All, Rude doctor with good analysis knowledge. . But I prefer a good Friendly doctor , don't know about others :)
He messed up my blood work and results for my annual and I had to come back three times . His office manager was sweet but really dumb and never helped . I told Him I was dating someone and He literally asked Me what ethnicity the guy was ...ahah ! How is that relevant sir ? Also he was so weird and didn’t answer any questions
He took the time to answer all of our questions. Very nice place. Everything was perfect. Thanks again.
i felt satisfied about my visit to Dr. Bourara, he explained clearly my situation gave me professional advice. I would highly recommend .
Clean and well docorated office. Quiet atmosphere and nice receptionist. Doctor explained appt would be fast as he had two women in the hospital I am guessing in Labor. Doc was professional and polite. Answered a few questions briefly. Will go back a second time to see how it goes
Dr. Mustapha makes me feel right at home when I go for my exams. He explains things and takes the time you need to understand. I would highly recommend him to any of my friends.
Please use a chaperone when you are performing gyn exams. It would make me feel more comfortable to know that there is a female in the room. In addition, she could serve as an assistant to help complete the pap smear- there were times when I was just hanging out with the speculum in me because the doctor had to stop to collect the samples him self and it took extra time.
Wonder clean and welcoming office. Dr Bourara has a wonderful bedside manner and took time to gather all important information, as well as answer any questions. Staff was very pleasant and helpful! Would definitely recommend.
I think the Dr should had done an evaluation before sending us off to another place. To be honest I just don't think he wanted to see us. So he prefer we went to the ER
I was extremely impressed! I went to the office preparing for an extremely long wait time because of the reviews. I must say I totally disagree! I was in and out of the office in less than an hour. On another note, I'm making him my primary GYN! The entire experience was great. From the appearance of the facility, the front desk staff to the entire exam process I was totally comfortable. The doctor was concerned about me, my health and making sure I felt good. He even asked if the temperature in the room was comfortable. I guess you appreciate these details when you come from a history of dealing with cookie-cutter doctors!
it was very good dr.
As non native English speaker, I was very nervous going to see a doctor in English. But he was very patient and took time to understand what I was trying to say when I didn't know the medical terms in English. Wait time wasn't bad at all. Maybe this was because I made a morning appointment. I waited a little, but I think I was called in within 20 min.
Love him.. very nice doctor and his receptionist is the sweetest woman ever. The beautiful middle eastern woman is as warm as any woman i have ever met. The office is super clean as well.. great little office
Amazing. Explained everything so thoroughly. Takes his time with the patients. He cares about his patients.
Great doctor. Wait time was long but they said it was unusual for them and were very apologetic. Friendly staff. Happy to have found this practice.
Very gentle and informative, definitely will be my regular GYN.
Very nice man! Made the consultation (and patient) comfortable. He was very personable and kind.
Always a pretty long wait but the doctor is thorough and you can tell he really cares about his patients. He takes his time with each patient (probably why there is such a wait) and really gets to know them.
Very kind doctor and reception staff!
This was the first time I used ZocDoc to find a doctor, so I was not sure what to expect. Also, I had never been to a male OBGYN before, so I was not sure how comfortable I would feel. After my visit this afternoon, I want to highly recommend Dr. Bourara and his staff! The office was very clean and located in a nice quiet block in Astoria. Sure, there was a little wait, but it was within the expectation for any doctor's office. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. Dr. Bourara was extremely patient with all the questions I had. He took down all my personal medical history in detail and explained things step by step when he was examining me. Though I was very nervous due to my own assumption of my condition, he tried to reassure and make me feel relax. He was knowledgeable, professional, patient, and NOT a bit judgmental like some of the other reviewers had claimed. I went to Dr. Bourara today only for a self-perceived urgent matter as my usual OBGYN was not available in the weekends, but after my visit, I think Dr. Bourara will become my regular OBGYN in the future!!! Thank you!
He was wonderful! He sat and really took his time with me during my appointment. He definitely made up for his lateness by not rushing through my appointment. We spoke about contraceptives and he went over pros and cons for all, even ones I said I wasn't necessarily interested in using. Dr. said he wanted to make sure I knew all of my options. He was friendly, and extremely personable. His staff is extremely helpful and friendly as well!
Everything was excellent.
The doctor is very thorough and takes his time with each patient (unfortunately it seems to cause him to run behind schedule). He explained everything to me and really made the experience of getting used to a new gynecologist as painless as possible.
Great Dr. Even though I couldn't get the method I had in mind, because I don't have kids yet. He recommended another. Hopefully it's the second best.
Very professional and ask a lot of questions, even some odd ones like if I own a car. But he was great he checked everything out and was completely professional about it. I had a 1pm appointment and he was not in the building until 1:35, so that was a bit annoying. But other than the wait time all was well :)
Dr. Bourara and his staff are kind, charming, friendly, intelligent, down-to-eartj helpful people. The office felt/looked welcoming from the moment I stepped in. Dr. Bourara knows his stuff, I left with a lot of information and high spirits, and for the first time in my life--I actually know how birth control works/effects the body. I can tell he cares for his patients and staff. One of my best experiences in NYC so far (which is funny, because you wouldn't think that would be s doctor's office). Some of the nicest people in NYC work at this office. Cannot recommend Dr. Bourara highly enough.
Great Doctor , Clean Office
It was good, but i was made to wait an hour past my appointment time before seeing the doctor. The doctor was helpful however, in answering my questions and took his time.
Helpful and kind
This was one of the top medical appointments I've ever been to. The Office super clean ,the setting was beautiful. the receptionist was welcoming, friendly and accommodating. Dr. Bourara was wonderful Very focused...Very Caring...Very concerned and addressed all of my questions . his bedside manner is incredible and explained everything to me very directly! Highly recommended. I forget ( The office feels more like a spa. Completely stress free for people who doesn't t feel comfortable in GYN Office) .
I highly recommend Dr. Bourara. He was kind, professional, and made me feel at ease. He also took the time to answer some of my questions at the end.
Always had a good treatment at Dr. Bourara's office. I highly recommend this Doctor, very very professional. Staff is very nice and polite too.
Very professional, answered all my questions and informed me of everything he was doing and why. Definitely recommend!
Very knowledgeable and positive person who is willing to educate moms to be.
Very professional and warm. Very little wait time. Only downside was that they didn't take credit card.
It is always pleasant coming here . Everybody's very nice and highly professional.
He was absolutely fabulous. I went for a first time visit and he couldn't have been more helpful. He answered all my questions and actually listened. Would absolutely suggest him!
Dr. Bourara was terrific. He spent plenty of time with me, thoroughly responded to all of my questions (including drawing pictures for me to fully understand), and gave me multiple options for next steps. I definitely have a new ob/gyn.
The office was beautiful, very bright and clean. Staff was very polite.
Dr. Bourara was very warm and understanding. He was even concerned about me traveling so far from home for this appointment. After the exam and his diagnosis he referred to one his colleagues that was minutes away from my house. Dr. Bourara is a very compassionate doctor who cares anou
He took his time, answered all my questions and never rushed out. Was very sincere and explained everything to the best of his knowledge. I felt very comfortable with him and would recommend him. His receptionist was just as welcoming!
Wonderful doctor, highly recommended
Great service and friendly staff. Dr Bourara was very personable and took his time to answer any questions. Highly recommended!
Dr was personable, kind staff, beautiful atmosphere!
He is attentive and answers all questions in detail. He is gentle and I am so glad that I found him for our first child!
The best doctor I've ever been to, hands down. As his last appointment of the day on a Friday and 20 minutes late he was most gracious and performed an equally thorough exam as if I was his first appointment. I will certainly be returning if ever I need.
Always a pleasure when I see Dr.Bourara. His staff is always professional and polite. I highly recommend him to anyone I know. He will deff be delivering my next child ;-)
I didn't mind the wait time so much, once I saw how Dr. Bourara took his time with my appointment. He didn't make me feel rushed in any way.
He was very nice and professional. I felt comfortable and will go back.
I would never go again to this doctor. And don't recommend anyone to go.
Just be aware that they don't take credit cards for the copay, other than that, fantastic!
Best OBGYN. So incredibly happy with how he helped me through my entire pregnancy and was there to deliver my first son at 3 am. Everyone in his office is friendly and helpful. I was able to book last minute appnts and Dr. Bourara always answered my questions and took the time to return my calls and make sure I was calm/prepared for labor and delivery. I hope to continue to see him for yearly exams!
Dr. Mustapha was very polite and asked questions that needed to be asked in a way that did not make me feel uncomfortable. My previous OBGYN was always in a rush and overbooked, so having someone who was willing to spend some time speaking with me was a welcome change.
Everyone was very respectful and kind. I instantly felt comfortable once I walked into the office.
A ferfect doctor. very happy with him.
He was very professional and smart. He answered all my questions fully and performed a thorough history. His staff are very nice and professional as well. The office was very clean.
I found his opinion to be really judgemental. He seemed to be critiquing all of my medical history and he asked many questions that were irrelevant to my health
Overall, I think he was fine, but when I we talked about my sexual history, he made a couple comments that were inappropriate and judgmental. I was a little shocked. I know a lot of women may underplay or lie about their history, but it doesn't make sense to do so when talking to your gyno. It doesn't matter if you're a virgin or a prostitute, it's pretty unprofessional to comment on a patient's sexual history in any way that is not related to aiding their sexual health.
Great doctor! He explains every single thing to you that your left with no doubts about anything. The office is beurifull and the secretaries are super friendly. There is no wait time. Your attended dight away
He is a very nice person, approachable, down to earth, and a good listener.
I love this doctor not only is he very efficient he's kind and helpful cant wait to see him next month.
Nice guy. Peaceful office. No complaints
Based on my observation about the interactions with other patients and my own experience.. he made me feel at ease and making sure that I fully understand the propose of requesting the tests to be done. He is absolutly wonderful!
It was a good visit hes a nice guy and it was smooth and comfortable experience
Dr. Bourara saw me through a High Risk pregnancy, and treated me with compassion and humanity hard to find in a doctor. It's not a pregnancy assembly line at his office. It's personal. I trust him with my life, and the life now growing inside of me (my fourth and final!). Amazing!
Dr. Bourara was an amazing doctor. I've been with other gynecologist but not like him. I felt comfortable as soon as I walked in. He answered all my questions and explained everything to me in details. He took his time and was not in a rush with me. I'll definetly let my friends know about him and highly recommend him. They gave me my appointment right there and then. The front desk was very sweet and the clinic looks amazing and is very relaxing .
Dr. Bourara is an amazing doctor. He is very sweet and gentle. He really does care about my overall welfare. I highly recommend him to anyone.
having an appointment with this doctor it's like going to a police station...he is really rude and showing no humanity....all he thinks is MONEYYY....i don't recommend this doct to my worst enemy...i would like to say that the nurses are really nice
Dr. Bourara is really amazing not only is he professional in what he does. He is excellent at his field. He explains you in detail what the problem is the cause of it and how it can be cure.
Front desk is very sweet and welcoming. Dr. Bourara saw me promptly. He was very courteous and seemed genuinely interested in everything I had to say. He answered all of my questions and gave me firm instructions on what to do by my next appointment. You can tell that he has been doing this for a long time. He does his job thoroughly and he's awfully nice.
Really great doctor. He spends the time to get to know you, ask you questions and make sure that everything is ok. He makes you feel really comfortable. One of the best OBGYNs I have seen.
My recently improved health is a credit to his expertise and attentiveness. I will be certain to continue to recommend him to everyone I know.
Everyone in the office was incredibly warm, welcoming and friendly.
