It was OK but he was extremely rushed because one of his patients was in labor at the hospital. It seemed like 2 women who had appointments were told they needed to reschedule and they seemed very upset. The Pap Smearwas more painful and uncomfortable than I have had at previous OBGYNs. He told me that I “wasn’t prepared” for the appointment.

First things first, the front end reception was incredibly accommodating when there was a mix up with ZocDoc scheduling and she was very courteous and professional. Next I will say that while GYN visits are not a favorite for anyone, Dr.Bourara's bedside manner makes it a much easier experience. His calm, reassuring and soothing demeanor makes the visit much more comfortable. I highly recommend this office!

Excellent physician who makes you feel very comfortable. The front desk staff is lovely as well. Unfortunately I had to wait 2 hours for me to even get called in to see the nurse. Then there was additional waiting. If theycould somehow manage this issue, this place would be perfect.

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 copayin 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.

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...

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 muchlonger am I going to Wait? The response was "he is parking outside"...

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.

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 anythingfurther. 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.

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 about15 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.
