Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Ostrov was amazing. She went out of her way to explain to me each step of the annual exam and discuss with me all of my options. My nurse was also amazing and took the extra time to do a great job when drawing my blood! Couldn’t give a better review!
She is a beautiful person. Will make you feel confident that you are well taken care of ! She is smart and down to earth . A good person and will take time to answer all your questions. She also has a great sense of humor too. 100 % reccomended.
Dr. Ostrov is incredibly lovely and warm and my appointment was quick but I felt like she wanted to make sure we were both on the same page about everything. She’s very easy to talk to and her nurses were also lovely.
I liked Nikole Ostrov but it was the most rushed doctor's visit I have ever been to. Usually doctors take the time to ask if I have questions or concerns etc but she really just rushed through the appointment - I would say I was in and out within 10-15 minutes. With that said she is really, really nice - super sweet, non-judgemental all of that good stuff which is essential for a good doctor. But for my next annual I would see another doctor.
Dr. Ostrov was fantastic! She definitely took the time to understand my history and was very friendly. Would definitely recommend.
Dr. Ostrov is extremely knowledgeable and performs the procedures swiftly, with as little discomfort for the patient as possible. She has a straightforward, "no BS" demeanor, while also being very warm. You know she has your best in mind every step of the way, even when she opposes some of your own questions/diagnoses/info that she believes is incomplete or misunderstood. She handles panic moments with the right amount of humor to give you the right perspective on things. In general, she is exactly the young, dynamic, experienced, opinionated doctor I wish I find for all other specialties I need, not only gynecology. She is how all doctors should be.
She is the best. HIGHLY recommend!
Great visit! I will be returning here for my annual exams for sure! Dr. Ostrov answered all of my questions and made me feel at ease.
So sweet! Dr. Ostrov was very professional and knew her stuff. She really kept me informed and made great recommendations.
I liked her very much. Quick but thorough. It was my first time but I will see her again. I think the office could be a little cleaner and friendlier looking.
I really love Dr. Ostrov, she is friendly, but quick and to the point. My critique is not about her, it is about the office. The place is so gross. A layer of dust is visible on the floor. Outdated tools are stored in the exam rooms and you can see a thick layer of dust on them as well. Granted, they aren't using computers from the 80s but why keep them around?
Absolutely love Dr. Ostrov - even the assistant who was helping prior to my 1-on-1 with the Dr raved about how great she is and that she wished she could have her as her own doctor. Dr. Ostrov is extremely easy to talk with and has a great bedside manner - I always hate these appts and she puts me completely at ease and it's over before I know it!
She is very thorough and gives you time to go through your whole medical history and then she focuses on items specific to you. She makes sure you understand everything she's saying. You can see all of your test results and other information on their portal. The scheduling office can be very difficult to reach, so I always book my appointments through ZocDoc, but the billing office is accessible and staff is friendly.
Amazing woman! Extremely nice. Made me feel very comfortable.
Dr. Ostrov was pleasant and has a great bedside manner. My wait was less than 5 minutes.
Dr. Ostrov is extremely professional, makes you feel comfortable, and is very attentive! I recommend her 100%! I've had so many bad experiences in NYC and she has been my absolute favorite. Glad I found her! :)
Dr. Ostrov is amazing! My only complaint would be that I mixed up the dates I went last year and during my appt we noticed that it had not been 365 days. At that point I was already robed up and wasn't going to go. I feel like this is something that reception should've noticed when I booked and before I went back for my appt. Other than that, highly recommend and the Dr. Ostrov is fantastic.
Thorough ,addressed all my concerns and took her time with me. Informative.
I wasn't a super big fan of the front desk staff, but the nurses and Dr. Ostrov were all wonderful! Dr. Ostrov took time to actually learn about me and give me further information regarding what she would be doing and what it meant. I appreciated the time and detail, something that many doctors will not bother with.
Dr. Ostrov was amazing. This was my first time ever at a OBGYN and she was calm and informative and answered all of my questions. I would highly recommend her.
She was so kind and so was the staff! I felt so comfortable in an uncomfortable situation!
Dr Ostrov made me feel immediately at ease. As this was my first visit at the clinic she took the time to explain everything and also make sure she had a thorough understanding of my background. The office staff were extremely friendly and accommodating too. I will definitely be returning.
Dr Ostrov is wonderful. She has great bedside manner . She is patient and genuine.
She was incredibly nice! I have never felt so comfortable at the GYN!
Friendly,confident and positive. Pleased with the forthcoming information.
Awesome experience - very professional staff at the office and Dr Ostrov was great. She is super friendly, listens, and gives you honest feedback on your health. I'm actually looking forward to my next visit!
Was nervous about finding a new doctor in NYC, but she was amazing!
She is nothing short from the five star reviews ! I'm so happy I made my appointment to see her . Clean office and friendly staff .
Can't speak highly enough about my experience with Dr. Ostrov and her practice. She was very friendly and took her time explaining everything to me. The medical assistants and people at the front desk were all wonderful. The iPad system they use to log you in is way more convenient than filling out tons of paperwork. And the environment is clean and welcoming.
Long wait & followed by a very rude & condescending doctors appointment. I would not recommend.
I love Dr. Ostrov! She is always thorough but quick, responds to portal messages quickly, and is caring and kind. I have never been happier with any other gyno!!
Always so friendly, informative and quick! Dr. Ostrov is so easy to talk to and I'm very comfortable asking her any questions I may have. Great as usual!
Excellent visit. Dr. Ostrov is extremely knowledgeable and has perfect bedside manner.
Dr. Ostrov was great! It's hard to find a doctor that is easy to talk with appears to have time for you- Dr. Ostrov did both! She is now my OBGYN as long as I am in NYC!
Dr. Ostrov and the entire staff are incredibly friendly and professional.
Always a pleasure, which is tough to say for a gyno!
This was my first visit with Dr. Ostrov, and it was great! She sits you down in her office first to chat about your health history and explain how the exam will go. It was so quick and I was grateful for the information she provided. So thrilled to have found such an excellent OB-GYN!
Dr. Ostrov was wonderful! I'll definitely be going back.
Blown away by how amazing she is! Made me feel so comfortable and she's extremely friendly and informative!
Dr. Ostrov is a wonderful physician - super good at explaining things and making sure all my concerns were addressed. I never felt rushed at all. However, her office is so disorganized. I had to wait 25 minutes beyond my appointment time despite being 15 minutes early. She was supposed to send in my prescription to the pharmacy but neglected to do so. Her office did not apologize at all for the delay and was very lackadaisical about making sure I get the prescription I need. I really like her but at the same time don't want the frustrations of dealing with her office.
This was a wonderful appointment. Everyone was so courteous, professional and made you feel right at home. Dr. Ostrov is definitely a professional that loves what she does! It had been years since I had gotten a check-up and she definitely did not hold it against me! She is very thorough and takes the time to explain the procedure and to answer any question one may have. The staff from the receptionists down to the nurse was excellent. I cannot speak highly enough of everyone! Dr. Ostrov will definitely be me primary gynecologist!
Wonderful experience with Dr Ostrov! Highly recommended.
I love Dr. Ostrov! Never thought I could enjoy an annual internal but she is just such a love! Wait time was under 10 minutes, nurses are so sweet and friendly - the whole experience was just a nice break from my work day!
Dr. Ostrov was great - the only thing potential patients should know is that ZocDoc refers to her as an ob-gyn, but she doesn't do obstetrics, just gynecology. So, if you are looking for a doctor when pregnant, you will need to find someone else.
I don't normally comment, but it's taken me 3 years in New York City to find a doctor I like and will go back to. Finally I found Dr. Ostrov!
She's wonderful. Excellent bedside manner. You feel right at home!
The best OB-GYN I've ever been to. I'm so thankful that I switched to her from this really tough and somewhat cold doctor in Soho. I feel so much more safe now knowing I know I can go to her for any questions.
Dr. Ostrov was absolutely fantastic! She was enjoyable to talk to, informative and incredibly efficient! I never thought I would say that I could ever "look forward" to my annual gyn visit but with Dr. Ostrov, I do! The front desk and physician assistants were all equally as helpful and efficient! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Dr. Ostrov was amazing as usual. She is a doll. Love her.
Very professional atmosphere and staff. I highly recommend.
Dr. Ostrov is the best!
Very professional and understanding of a first time patient, makes a very awkward experience painless and easy.
Actual doctor was brilliant and lovely, check-in was meh and seemed disorganized- but maybe it's a Monday thing?
So knowledgeable and easy to talk to!
She made me feel very relaxed and explaining things to me without me even having to ask her. By far the best Gyn experience I've had thus far.
Amazing doctor who really lives up to the expectations everyone has set for her. Very empathetic about how you feel and really invested in your overall health
Dr. Ostrov was high energy, attentive, and communicative. She was funny as well, which is always appreciated. I felt like she gave me the time and attention I needed and made me feel at ease.
Dr. Ostrov is professional and also kind, as are all of the office staff.
She was amazing. Very easy to talk to and thorough!
Very professional and nice!
I've been seeing Dr. Ostrov for the past several years. She has an excellent bedside manner, she's pleasant and clear and compassionate. Highly recommended.
She is fabulous!
The best GYN I ever had. Very knowledgeable Doctor. She really paid attention to my concerns, and made me feel very comfortable, So glad I found her :)))
I was very nervous to try a new doctor after recently moving to the city but Nikole was hands down the best OB-GYN I have ever been to. She was friendly, extremely educated and informative and very kind. I felt perfectly comfortable with her. Would definitely recommend her to anyone.
Doctor Ostrov was knowledgeable and informative. She cares about her patients and clears common misconceptions the patients may have. She takes the time to really get to know you and is honest about the pros and cons of certain procedures. I definitely recommend her!
Dr. Ostrov was so patient and nice to me- I couldn't recommend her highly enough. I will definitely be returning to her.
She knows what she is talking about and she is very personable. The staff and the layout of the office space very clean and professional.
Dr. Ostrov was great, after searching so long for a gynecologist in NYC I have finally found one. She listens and provides extensive information regarding any questions you have. Also I had no wait time!
After having my first appointment with Dr. Ostrov for my annual exam, I will definitely be switching practices and returning in the future. Dr. Ostrov was on time, very warm and friendly, and had fantastic bedside manner. She took the time to sit down and have a conversation with me prior to my exam and answer any questions, which very few doctors do. I would highly recommend.
I had just moved to NYC and was looking for a new OBGYN, which is challenging when you're used to having the same doctor forever. I found Dr. Ostrov through a referral and when I checked on ZocDoc, she has amazing reviews. Dr. Ostrov is very personable and professional and made me feel very comfortable right away. I'm very happy with her!!
This was my 2nd appt and a general follow up. Dr. Ostrov has a fantastic demeanor, is very upfront and realistic around medical questions and history. Also considerate about communicating how any medical decision may affect your lifestyle. I've had very efficient and effective appointments. Great experience, looking forward to long term medical relationship.
Dr. Ostrov took the time to explain things and answer my questions. The doctor and all of the staff were very friendly.
Dr.Nicole is always pleasant. She is always informative and very easy to speak with.
Dr. Ostrov was great! She made me feel very comfortable talking about issues and gave great advise. Happy to have found a doctor I feel comfortable with in the city!
By far my favorite and easiest doctors visit of the year.
My visit with Dr. Ostrov was wonderful--honestly my best gynecologist visit to-date. She was personable, genuine and informative. I felt very comfortable, and I highly recommend her!
She is absolutely terrific. Reception is a mess. Both locations.
Dr. Ostrov has been my doctor for a number of years. She is always thorough and very welcoming of any questions. I feel very comfortable and well informed in her care.
Dr. Ostrov is great - she is very easy to talk to, and reassuring whenever I have a concern. I go to her for birth control prescriptions and yearly checkups, so can only attest to those sorts of examinations, but if that's what you're looking for, I highly recommend.
Nikole is so friendly and takes time to make sure you know exactly what she is doing and what your options are. She makes a point of explaining everything. Despite being taken in a little later than I wanted, I was still in an out in around 30 minutes for a routine annual and conference with Nikole, which was great! Front desk and nurses are very friendly.
This was the most positive obgyn experience I've ever had. Dr. Ostrov was so nice and engaging, made me feel extremely comfortable! I have a serious family history of breast cancer which can be a touchy, emotional subject- she was beyond helpful! Definitely recommend
Dr. Ostrov was very thorough but incredibly intense. Her voice is very loud and she speaks a mile a minute. It made me a little uncomfortable. However, the exam itself was gentle, plus she seemed genuinely interested in my medical history and treatment options, so I will try to ignore the personality differences and plan to see her again.
I'm very happy to have her as my gynecologist. She's is knowledgeable and kind and doesn't rush!
It was a simple annual exam, so once I got in it was a quick appointment. I love that they have a digital patient portal so I can request Rx refills and ask questions. Dr. Ostrov has a great bedside manner and is always cheery, making the whole experience so nice.
She is extremely thorough, and took the time to provide a lot of information, including answering any questions I had. Dr. Ostrov also has a really lovely bedside manner. This was my first visit with her, and I felt very comfortable.
What a great experience I had at this office! I *highly* recommend Dr. Ostrov. She was so easy to talk to, made me feel incredibly comfortable, & gave me time to talk about my concerns. The best experience I've had with a doctor in a long time.
Let's face it, gyno visits are never fun. But, Dr. Ostrov made me feel very comfortable and at ease during my whole appointment. She was friendly and warm, and she was an active listener. She gave me some great tips for issues totally unrelated to my visit and was very helpful in providing some insurance guidance, which I'm sure saved me a ton of money. I was scared to switch to a new birth control, but Dr. Ostrov was so wonderful in addressing my concerns, providing feedback, and scheduling a future appointment. I really appreciated her attitude, information, and bedside manor!
Would recommend and plan on returning.
She was amazing. Going to make her my main OBGYN!
Dr. Ostrov is so friendly and really takes the time to get to know her patients. I had such a pleasant experience with her (for my annual) and I'm so glad I decided to switch practices and go to her! She was super knowledgeable and clearly cares about each and every one of her patients. Best of all, I was in and out of there in less than 1 hour. Highly recommend!
Very easy to talk to. Answered any questions and took her time explaining all procedures in detail. Office is clean and staff is friendly!
Dr Ostrov was fantastic. There was virtually no wait time. I met with her in her office prior to the examination. She explained everything to me and answered all my questions . Dr Ostrov had wonderful bedside manner. I highly recommend her!
I LOVE Dr.Nikole Ostrov. She is very informative and makes you feel extremely comfortable.
Dr. Ostrov answered all questions I had and was very professional. Definitely would recommend her and am glad to be under her care.
Dr. Ostrov is so kind and approachable. I definitely trust her expertise.
Dr. Ostrov is incredibly friendly and she patiently and thoroughly answered all my questions. She also frequently reminded me that she is available to help answer additional questions should they occur to me after I left.
Dr. Ostrov treated me with respect and did not rush the appointment whatsoever. As soon as I finished filling out the paperwork she called me back - completed intake in her office, and then completed the appointment in the exam room. Would definitely recommend her!
I've seen several gynecologists during my last 4 years in NY and I can say with absolute certainty that Dr. Ostrov is the best! Before my exam, we had a conversation in her office. She listened patiently as I discussed my personal and medical histories, and she helped me to better understand my health concerns. She also was very gentle and talked me through each step during my exam. Annual exams have caused me anxiety to the point of once having a mild panic attack, but I was actually comfortable during the entire exam! Dr. Ostrov is not only a knowledgeable and skilled doctor, but also a kind and understanding person.
Outstanding! Excellent experience all around. Dr. Ostrov and her staff were amazing and put me totally at ease. Very thorough and GREAT!
She was very thorough, informative and extremely nice.
Felt very comfortable. She was very detailed with explaining everything during the visit, and not painful at all.
She was very nice and professional. She seemed like a good doctor.
Overall my actual appointment was fine. Dr Ostrov was pleasant but also somewhat condescending. The problem I had is with her follow up and the clinic's customer service. I have been calling now for a solid month to get her to refill my prescription as well as sending messages through the clinic's web portal. I have yet to hear back and have not gotten my prescription refilled. I had to make an appointment with an entirely new doctor at a different clinic to get my prescription simply because Dr Ostrov wasn't able to refill it. Completely unacceptable.
Excellent experience, Dr. Ostrov was warm and professional, spent time answering questions, and made the experience pleasant and comfortable. I would definitely recommend her.
Dr. Ostrov was so welcoming! She took the time to explain all the medical details to me and made me feel very comfortable for my first appointment with her. My appointment took less than an hour from start to finish, including bloodwork. I highly recommend booking an appointment with her!
My visit was short and easy. I was in and out of the office within 30 minutes but I never felt like I was being rushed by Dr. Ostrov. She took the time to listen to my family history and offer suggestions. She also made sure she explained why she was doing what she was doing. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a new OB-GYN!
While my doctor was good the facility was extremely dirty, the floor were disgusting....
Dr Ostrov is super warm and easy to talk to - she makes going to the gyno a much more pleasurable experience than it normally is.
This was my second visit for an annual check-up. I had plenty of time to ask all of the questions I had, and Dr. Ostrov was gracious and informative in providing me with answers.
I have recommended Dr. Ostrov to all my friends. She was quick and thorough. She has a very warm bedside manner and made me unafraid to share personal information.
Highly recommend Dr.Ostrov! She was very nice, professional, and made me feel very comfortable.
I thought that she was great, took the time to sit with me and explain the myriad of birth control options and what might work best for me and why. The actual exam was quick and painless, overall thrilled that I found a doc that was willing to spend the time going over options and explaining procedures, exactly what I was looking for
She was wonderful! Made you feel very comfortable, and like you were chatting with one of your girlfriends. Very thorough, and saw me immediately.
She was extremely professional and very straightforward. Very approachable and easy to converse with. Polite and made going to the doctor quick and painless.
She's efficient, but warm. She states the options available to you and gives her recommendation without mandating the "right path." I felt comfortable talking about my lifestyle & decisions with her, and she was very professional and practical. The nurses were quick, kind and capable.
It was a pleasure dealing with Dr. Ostrov. She might be the best doctor I've ever dealt with.
Dr. Ostrov is great! This was my second time seeing her and just like the first time she is fabulous! Very personable and cares about you and your health. I recommend her to everyone!
Dr. Ostrov is very thorough taking medical history and in explaining things. She is great about follow up. I'm a new patient and already have had two visits and suggestions for tests,
Nikole had great bedside manner, and was personable. She greeted you with a smile, and was thorough but quick!
the medical staff was great. Reception could use some improvement, but it was worth it. Doc & team were terrific.
I thought Dr. Ostrov was extremely professional and courteous! She was patient, didn't rush me and thoroughly answered all of my questions. I would definitely recommend her services to others.
Very nice doctor. She took the time to get to know me and made medical decisions after a very nice personal consultation.
Dr. Ostrov was very pleasant and informative. As a new patient, she greeted me within minutes of checking in with the receptionist and prior to the exam we sat in her office to go over my medical history and her practice. I felt comfortable the entire appointment and did not feel rushed at all. I would highly recommend Dr. Ostrov!
Warm, friendly, explains everything - great experience for my annual exams. I've been seeing Dr. Ostrov for 3 years.
So nice, so friendly, made me feel SO comfortable, and knew her stuff! Definitely recommend to others.
Very happy with Dr. Ostrov. I was there for a birth control consult and she answered all my questions, gave me all the information I needed to make a decision, and helped me get the ball rolling on that decision. She was fully knowledgable, and her extensive experience came through in our conversation.
Amazing! She was right on time. Front office staff was fantastic. I didn't feel rushed at all. She explained everything in great detail and encouraged asking questions. Fantastic!
Dr. Ostrov made my visit seamless and answered all my questions with great details. She took her time and I did not feel rushed at all. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Ostrov is everything you look for in a doctor. I haven't found a regular OB GYN and I came in with an embarrassing issue. Dr Ostrov immediately put me at ease, comforted me with her knowledge on my problem and gave me a game plan to get my problem fixed. I would recommend her to anyone.
Dr. Ostrov was by far one of the greatest doctors I've ever been to! She was so informative, so kind, easy to talk to, and overall just made me feel super comfortable. I'm telling all my girlfriends they need to see her!
Really loved meeting with Nikole. I've been looking for my go-to gynecologist for some time now, and Nikole fits the bill. Clean office, professional staff, and Nikole has a great presence.
I love Dr. Ostrov! I have already referred a few friends to her and they all have the same glowing review. She really cares about you and wants to help. Highly recommend!
Dr. Ostrov was straight forward and thorough. She answered all of my questions and her patience eased my anxiety.
Dr. Ostrov is thorough and easy to talk to. You definitely feel like you're in good hands with her!
My visit was great. Dr Ostroc was friendly and extremely informative. I felt really comfortable with her immediately.
Doctor Nicole is an excellent Doctor, I am very happy that I went to her and I will continue going. She take her time with the patient and a very professional way, very professional I highly recommend her!
She's very knowledgeable and understanding, great bedside manner. I would recommend her.
Dr. Ostrov was the prime example of the perfect doctor: excellent bedside manner (answered questions thoroughly and patiently, totally nonjudgmental, friendly and personable), was right on time for my appointment first thing in the morning, and most importantly very fast. My whole visit took thirty minutes. The office also has a virtual portal for patient information so any details related to my file is posted there - there is also a messaging system to "chat" with the doctor - I haven't used this function but knowing I can leave questions or information with my doctor personally is a definite perk.
Dr. Ostrov makes you feel comfortable. She also taught me quite a bit about women's health. I've never felt so comfortable and informed during a gynecologist visit!
Very knowledgeable and pleasant doctor. She explained all new standards for various test and described in detail treatment options. she answered all my questions
Very knowledgeable and professional
I never want to see any other OBGYN! Dr. Ostrov is THE BEST! She really takes her time with you and makes you feel like you're the only patient she has to see that day. Patiently answered all of my questions about IUDs and helped me make an informed decision about which types of birth control were best for me. She is really makes you feel comfortable!
I was very happy to find Dr. Ostrov. She was nice, kind, and helpful throughout my visit.
Great bedside manner. Friendly, personable. Spends time, answers questions. Highly recommend.
Professional yet approachable, seems extremely competent and has a great bedside manner.
I will not return ever to this physician, ever. In fact, I've made an appointment with another GYN because I refuse to return to her. I can best describe her manner towards me as unapproachable and lacking in bedside manner. I had a ton of questions and I was concerned that people in the waiting area could hear what we were discussing. She dismissed it and continued speaking as loud as ever. Such a lack of regard. There was also something condescending about her. I won't ever waste my time again. I was swayed by all the positive reviews but will never return.
Dr. Ostrov was so warm and friendly and took the time to answer all of my questions. In addition to being very professional, she seems like a genuinely nice person who cares about her patients.
My experience with Dr. Ostric was the best I ever had with a doctor. She was right on time, all clinical information is recorded electronically (no papers to fill out), she has great bed side manners, talks to patients as if they are her piers (not like other doctors that think they are on a pedestal) and takes all the time you need without rushing. Overall great experience.
She was so lovely! It was my first visit, and she made sure I felt very comfortable! Thanks, Dr. Ostrov!
I found Nikole's bedside manner unsympathetic to my concerns and felt I was not taken seriously. Therefore, I will be finding a new doctor.
She is outstanding. Clearly explains things and listens.
Dr. Nikole Ostrov is extremely professional, with a very sincere and pleasant bedside manner. The practice is run very efficiently and all the staff I dealt with where very courteous and efficient. I highly recommend Dr. Nikole Ostrov.
I had a terrible experience with my OB GYN in Soho and am so happy I've found Dr. Ostrov. I highly recommend her, her entire office was very friendly, timely, clean and efficient.
Rushed appointment. I had to rap out my symptoms/concerns and if I didn't get the words out fast enough they would not be heard. However, given my need to quickly go back to work it worked out. I would not go to her for an annual/regular gyn visit but could go back for quick/urgent visits.
I really appreciated that she took a couple minutes before the exam to talk to me in her office. It was a lot more comfortable to talk to her that way than in the exam room!
Pretty bad experience there with receptionist. She is rude and threatening to cancel my appointment when I was only 5 min late. And then she kept me waiting there for 40 min without an apology. In addition, I later got a statement from my insurance that they billed them for blood draw, which never happened.
Slight wait in the waiting room but to be seen but she took as much time as I needed once back in the exam room. She didn't "over diagnose" but was very thorough. Great bedside manner!
She's a quick talker and a straight shooter. She explained things in a way I was able to understand, and didn't dumb it down or make me feel bad for information that I had that was incorrect. I've spent a lot of time looking around for a good lady doc, and I couldn't be happier after finding Dr. Ostrov.
Dr. Ostrov was amazing! So nice and friendly- she explained everything in great detail and made me feel so comfortable (which isn't always the case in an annual exam). I felt like I could ask her anything and she would give me a real, honest answer. I would recommend Dr. Ostrov to anyone!
The doctor took her time getting to know and explained what she will be doing today. She is my knew gyn
She was extremely quick and professional. And even though she moved fast I never felt as though I couldn't ask questions or as if she was trying to rush me. She was so nice!
Dr Ostrov was great. My appointment was on-time and Dr. Ostrov sat down with me in her office before beginning the exam to get to know me/address any issues or concerns. I would highly recommend her.
This visit she was wound up tight as a spring. She talked at me and wouldn't listen.
Dr Ostrov was very friendly and educational. She explained how everything would work even though I've had many annual exams before. She cared about other problem areas I've been having and referred me to another dr that could help me with that concern. I would definitely recommend her if you're looking for a nice, friendly, informative, caring dr!
Excellent physician! Great bedside manner, does a geat job of explaining things, wait time was minimal, office staff was friendly and competent.
She was very thorough in her examination and questioning. She was able to explain in laymen's terms the changing rules and regulations within the medical industry. She is very positive and easy to talk to.
Dr Ostrov is great! Very professional, caring. Makes you feel very comfortable and answers all the questions you might have.
Clearly bright, kind and authentic, unjudgemental, took the time to answer all my questions about specifics of my health.
Dr. Ostrov was very professional and thorough. Her office staff was cordial and efficient. I didn't have to wait long for my appointment and was in and out with my questions answered and tests ordered.
Dr. Ostrov was both thorough and efficient. I was impressed with her open and friendly demeanor and was at ease right away. The front desk staff was also incredibly polite and welcoming. The office is clean and bright.
Great bedside manner and makes you feel comfortable. This was my first visit and she made sure she took that time too explain and listen. Two great attributes to have as a doctor. I think I've found my new GYN.
I think Dr. Ostrov was honest, helpful, and friendly. She was professional and listened to my values and goals and told me what hers were. I recommend her.
Nikole was excellent! Incredibly knowledgeable and helpful, and she definitely won me over as a new client.
Dr. Ostrov was pleasant and knowledgeable. She seemed a bit remote to me, not warm and fuzzy, but competent.
Dr. Ostrov is professional, smart, and warm. She took her time listening to me, and I didn't feel rushed. She picked up on some boxes that I checked on the intake questionnaire, and had suggestions before I even mentioned them! The office staff was great, too. The only thing that I didn't like was that they keep patients' credit card numbers on file, so that they can charge you if there is an insurance problem. I've never experienced that before.
Dr. Ostrov is excellent. Takes the time to explain her complete thoughts and reasoning, listens attentively, and is super pleasant. I highly recommend.
She is super!
Dr. Ostrov showed me today that there is nothing traumatic about a Dr's appt and that you can be comfortable with someone you've never met before. SHE IS AMAZING! Over 20 years I've looked for someone that put me at ease... she did it in under 5 minutes.
Dr. Ostrov is so friendly and informative and makes you feel extremely comfortable during your visit! Highly recommended!
She was amazing! One of the best OBGYN's I have been to! She was kind and made me feel comfortable. I highly recommend. The whole office was great.
I enjoyed my visit. Dr. Ostrov was very friendly and professional. The check-up also went very quickly, i was in and out in half an hour, with very little waiting time at the beginning. I would definitely recommend! She is also very easy to contact if you have a health question or concern.
The doctor was very friendly and at the same time professional. Very relaxed atmosphere to consult anything with her.
Dr Ostrov was very professional and informative. Quick and to the point, but answered any question I had in full detail.
I had a nice introductory visit to Dr. Ostrov's practice and she seemed really kind, I was looking forward to being her patient. Unfortunatly this will not be the case. During my IUD placement Dr. Ostrov used an ultrasound, which I had not been informed of or given my consent for it's use prior to the process. She chose to do it in the middle of the placement while I was pretty much passed out from the pain. Now I am being charged a ludicrous amount for it and had I known beforehand that it was a possibility I would never have consented to it. This was a total breach of my trust while I was in a compromising position. I will not be coming back to this practice.
Dr Ostrov was amazing. This was my first appointment and she was extremely thorough. What I really enjoyed was we first met and spoke in her office while she asked questions. Then, we went to another room for an exam. She gave her full attention and was very professional. Highly recommended.
It was my first visit with Dr. Ostrov and she made a great impression. I've been living in Manhattan for a year and have been looking for a new Gynecologist and I think it's safe to say I found one. She took the time to get to know me, my family medical history and all that, which in my experience has always been done by a medical assistant. She takes it upon herself to learn this information. She was very friendly, knowledgable and occurs to me as really trying to make sure her patients are comfortable and left without questions. Makes going for an annual a breeze!
Thorough, patient, quick, kind.
Doctor Ostrov is great! I saw her over my lunch break, and she was very accommodating as to my time crunch. She is clearly very passionate about her practice and her patients!
Dr Ostrov was wonderful! she was kind and attentive! Highly recommend her!
Dr. Ostrov is one of the nicest doctors I have ever had. She took the time to discuss every detail with me and made me feel at ease.
Quik but thorough, very nice doctor.
Dr. Ostrov is very thorough and efficient. She got me out of her office and back to work quickly, but without compromising service or answering my questions thoughtfully. Great bedside manner, clean offices, and respectful staff. I would definitely recommend her.
The doctor was friendly, quick and my exam was a breeze.
She was very personable and professional. It was my first visit and we all know how these visits are and I not once felt uncomfortable. I highly recommend her!
This office is terrible...what a bad experience. I tried this doctor because she had great reviews, was close to my office and the practice had a patient portal where they posted my results. Unfortunately in the 2+ months I was a patient here the portal didn't work, the doctor was never available in the office close by and more often than not no one answers the phone. The office staff was flat out RUDE. Incorrect coding to the insurance and completely unhelpful. The only positive I had was that the doctor and the nurse were nice. Since I never saw results, I wouldn't know if they were knowledgeable.
She was so nice and lovely. I highly recommend her.
She is so nice and easy to talk to. Answered all my concerns and was straight forward and honest. Knowledgeable and kind and made me feel comfortable. Wait time was less than 5 minutes. Just make sure you do all your paperwork before you get to the office. Staff is also very nice and pleasant which is a refreshing change from my previous doctor.
Dr. Ostrov was really great. She took the time to get to know me as a new patient. She listened, asked questions, and offered advice without any pressure. I felt very good about my visit during it and after it. I would highly recommend her.
Nikole is a great doctor, she's super attentive and spends a lot of time getting to know you as a patient! Highly recommend her to anyone looking for a good doctor in the city-
I thought it was great!
I've been seeing Dr. Ostrov for a few years now and I think she is great. She makes small talk which makes you feel comfortable. Explains everything she is doing, gives options, makes recommendations and never forces one choice on you. The biggest, plus is they keep to their schedules and the waits are never long.
Dr. Ostrov is kind and professional. She always made me feel at ease, and even though she was busy, she never made me feel rushed. She obviously has many patients but still managed to remember personal details about me like where I work/what I do (while unrelated to patient care, it's such a nice touch!). I would definitely recommend Dr. Ostrov.
She is the only gyno I've ever had that I wanted to stick with. She is so easy to talk to, makes you feel very comfortable, and is really nice. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Ostrov was incredibly, kind, patient, and timeworthy!
Did not like my interaction with the medical assistant. The visit was very quick, which is good because visiting the gyn is really not that pleasant, but at the same time Dr. Ostrov is very fast, and one wonders how thoroughly she has examined you. As unpleasant as a gyn visit is, it still needs to be thorough and not rushed.
Dr. Ostrov is amazing. She's incredibly friendly and makes you feel at ease right away. She is super knowledgeable and will go through any and all questions you have (without making you feel like an idiot). I highly recommend!
Dr. Ostrov is the best! She explains everything to you before, during, and after so you know exactly what is going on. If there is a situation in which you must decide between options, she thoroughly goes through each option which I really appreciate. My office recently changed options for health plans and I made sure that she was on the plan I selected! As a plus, the front desk staff is lovely and makes you feel welcome.
Dr. Ostrov is great. She takes time to answer any questions I might have.
I felt she was dismissive and she was inattentive about the covering sheet which was humiliating when your naked and two people are standing over you.
Really sweet and informative. Told me I could contact her and email her with any more questions.
Dr. Ostrov has been a really wonderful doctor. I had an IUD inserted after a lot of anxiety, and it turned out to be painless and easy. She was very open about all procedures and is obviously very skilled. I will say that the ladies at the desk I do have some issues with. After an irregular pap, one called me and started the phone call with the phrase "You probably don't have cancer." Not the best way to give medical news, in my opinion! But I'll come back because I do like Dr. Ostrov's care.
The office staff does not give you an estimate of your expenses / copay in advance. They just charge your credit card.
She was very easy to talk to, and explained everything clearly.
Nikole is very professional, straightforward, and overall a great doctor. It was my first time seeing her and I thought she was very sweet and made me feel relaxed and comfortable. I was in and out of the office, which is a plus!
She was fantastic - very informative and nonjudgmental. Her staff was very friendly and helpful. Nice office too. All around a great experience.
I've been looking for a new gyno for some time, and tried out Dr. Ostrov because of all of her great ratings, and was not disappointed! There was really no wait, and as a new patient she sat down with me in her office to just discuss any and everything before even going into the exam room. She was super sweet and very attentive and thorough, as in actually wanted to give me the real answers to questions (which seems to be rare). I think I've found a keeper!
She is awesome- always looking for a good and professional lady doctor. I will be making her my go to doc. Getting an appointment in this office was a little hard and now I know why she is in such high demand.
She was amazing!! Really took time to get to know me and my medical history. Made me feel comfortable and had great advice. Definitely my new Dr.
Highly recommended. Very friendly, courteous and professional. She did not make me feel awkward. (I hate gyn routines) I felt very secure and comfortable
I would highly recommend Dr. Ostrov to anyone looking for a new GYN. From the time I stepped into her office for a consultation, she made me feel comfortable and willing to discuss my health with her. I am someone who has a fear of doctors (it's silly, I know) but Dr. Ostrov made me feel like everything was fine! I will be making my yearly appointments with Dr. Ostrov.
She is an excellent Doctor.She was very thorough and patient and most of all kind. I havent been to a GYN in a while and I was very nervous but from the minute I sat in her office I knew I was in good hands. I only wish the procedure I need to have could be preformed by her.Dr.Ostrov has great bedside manner which is very important to me.
So pleasant, assuring, and comforting. Just what I was hoping for.
As a new patient, I felt that Dr. Ostrov was very welcoming, warm, and knowledgeable. She was referred to me by a colleague, and I'm quite satisfied with my visit overall. I will say that the breast exam seemed to be particularly thorough, whereas the vaginal exam was quite quick - perhaps because I had a pap smear, which will provide more information. As with all doctors in New York, the visit felt a little bit rushed, but I will definitely continue to see her! Just one additional note - her assistant who took my blood did a terrible job. My entire elbow crease is black with bruising and a bulging vein. It aches quite a bit. While I'm sure it'll just heal up normally, this is the first time I've ever experienced this type of pain and bruising from having my blood drawn.
Great experience. Very nice, clean, organized office with very modern operations (all scrips are done online, can communicate directly with the doctor online, etc.). Dr. Ostrov has an incredible bedside manner and is well-versed in the latest developments in her field. Will definitely recommend her!!
My visit with Dr. Ostrov was incredible! She is an excellent doctor and I highly recommond her.
Dr. Ostrov is amazing. Very professional. she makes sure you understand everything before you leave. she makes you feel very comfortable.
Had my first appt with Dr Ostrov, she is patient, takes her time to speak with you and answer all questions. Will definitely continue following up with her.
Not only is she super smart & informative but she made me feel so comfortable! I am recommending to all i know!
She was so great! I felt so comfortable the entire time. She is incredibly personable and truly cares about her patients. This was my first time at her office but I will definitely be using her moving forward!
She is an excellent physician with a great bedside manner. She was extremely thorough with her explanations, even for the most basic decisions and recommendations. The exam itself was very quick and painless but I was glad to have the opportunity to sit with her and go through my medical history and concerns. I would highly recommend Dr. Ostrov to anyone.
She was fantastic. I don't think I've ever had an easier or faster visit to the OB-GYN. Will def be going back.
This was my first time visiting Dr. Ostrov per a referral from a friend. She's super personable, knowledgeable, and answered all of my questions without hesitation. I love her positivity and ability to put patients at ease; something that's especially important since OBGYN visits can sometimes be uncomfortable and nerve-racking! However, my visit was relatively easy and quick, and I was out in about 30 minutes. A pleasant experience overall!
I don't normally write reviews.. Ever. I have to say this was my most pleasant OBGYN appt. Dr. Ostrov was so kind with impeccable bedside manner. I do not handle these appts typically well so having her was a joy. Not only was she nice but also extremely informative. We had a brief office meeting before the actual exams. I 100% recommend. I have finally found my new lady doctor!
it was a good visit, the doctor was good and so were the staff, except that i was charged extra for the visit which was never that case in other offices.
I was looking for a new female gyn and I am so glad that I found Dr. Ostrov. I was comfortable and felt that she spent time with me and did not rush me out. Very satisfied.
Dr. Ostrov was very informative and made me feel comfortable. She has great bedside manners. I would definitely recommend her.
She is super thorough, explained everything she was doing and why, and seemed liked she genuinely cared about me. 100% recommend her!
Very knowledgable, helpful, and non judgmental
I came in early since I was a new patient. I put some forms and got seen right away. She was so nice and welcoming and very professional. I'll be sticking with her.
This is my second time seeing her, she is so supportive, listens to you and provides options that suit your needs best. You leave feeling taken care of and she is genuinely kind and helpful.
I LOVE Nikole Ostrov. She was extremely informative and very easy to talk to. I have found my new doctor!
Dr. Ostrov is super friendly and made me feel very confident on my first visit with her. Everything was comfortable and my visit was over quickly, but didn't seem rushed..
Dr. Ostrov's office staff tried to make me order my own IUD online. I would have had to pay for everything up front, and then file my own insurance claim. This seemed strange to me, so I found another gynecologist whose ordered the IUD for me and handled all the insurance, which was so much easier and less nerve-wracking. Don't let Dr. Ostrov's office staff bully you into buying your own medical equipment - it's quite ridiculous.
I thought it was a great visit and I already recommended her to a coworker. I was nervous about the experience but it went absolutely perfectly.
Professional, caring, and friendly. She truly cares about her patients, considering it was my first visit. I was referred by my daughter, and no wonder she loves this doctor.
Dr. Ostrov is very sweet, attentive, and informative. She always asked how I was feeling during the examinations, and also soothed any nerves I had. I have already recommended her to a coworker. Wait time is also very short.
These appointments are never fun but Doctor Ostrov has always made me feel so comfortable and the whole staff is polite, friendly and professional.
Dr. Ostrov is an amazing doctor. She is friendly, open minded, and reassuring. She really listened to me and I didn't feel rushed at all. She's truly lovely and I HIGHLY recommend her.
Super nice, efficient and professional. The best gyno experience I've had in a while.
Great doctor and very professional
amazing doctor highly recommended she takes the time to sit with you and understand your concerns. she is the best Gyno i have
Dr. Ostrov was great! Very easy to talk to and patient. She walked me through everything so I felt comfortable and the appointment was super quick.
She's great. Very personable, informative, and makes you feel super comfortable. I'm a big fan!
Dr. Ostrov really took her time to answer all my questions. She's very personable and knowledgeable and made me feel very comfortable. I arrived at the office 15min early to fill out paperwork and the appt started exactly on time. The overall office is very professional and clean. Staff at the front desk was courteous and helpful.
My first time with an OBYN, and I'm very glad I went with Nikole, and I'm thankful for all of her wonderful reviews on here, which pointed me in her direction. Honestly I was dreading the appointment, but she made it easy and she was very knowledgable and explained how I will receive my test results.
She made you feel comfortable and was very informative.
Dr. Ostrov was prompt, thorough, and most importantly had a warm personality and great beside manner. She listened to my history and concerns and really gave me the personalized attention I'd been looking for after years of feeling like "just another patient" at my previous doctor. She definitely put my apprehensions at ease, and gave the impression that she's honestly looking out for her patients' best interest.
She was great. She talked to me and addressed all my concerns, I didn't feel rushed
This was my first time visiting Dr. Ostrov and I'll definitely be a returning patient! I had to a find a new OBGYN since moving to the city so of course meeting a new doctor makes you a little anxious. She makes the visit comfortable, and she's very quick with the actual exam (which I'm getting use to). We ended up spending more time talking about my medical history than the actual exam. But you can tell she's passionate about what she does and is very informative.
This was My first visit with Dr. Ostrov. I was delighted and impressed That she was very friendly, informative and made me feel comfortable.
My visit with Dr. Ostrov was pleasant. She is personable and makes one feel comfortable right away. She listened attentively and provided feedback that satisfied my questions and concerns. She was quick, but not rushed. The office is nice, clean and friendly.
Dr. Ostrov was helpful and friendly. She tried to make my annual exam as comfortable as possible and seemed interested in my wellbeing as a new patient.
This was a first visit and I fell like I am in really good hands with Dr Ostrov. She really heard my concerns and addressed them very thoroughly.
she was so nice and informative. Made me feel comfortable
She's a caring wonderful beautiful doctor!!;) I strongly recommend her.
Went for an annual check up ... she was so friendly and personable but was also very professional and quick.
This was such a disappointing experience - Dr. Ostrov was cold and dismissive. Unfortunately I won't be returning.
First time there, really liked Dr Ostrov. I highly recommend to anyone who wants a doc to listen to you rather then getting you in and out asap.
I moved to NYC less than 2 years ago. While I visited doctors since I moved, I was still looking for "the one". Fortunately, I made an appointment with Dr. Ostrov. She has great attitude, seems to be knowledgeable (I am not a doctor to fully judge on that), and overall experience was great. Highly recommended.
Dr. Ostrov was amazing. It was my first time ever getting a full exam and she made me feel so comfortable, talked me through everything before, and checked up on me after. I've already recommended her to all of my friends.
All the staff are very polite and friendly. Definitely make you feel at ease. Highly recommend Dr Ostrov!
Very pleasant experience. She was quick and friendly, and so accommodating!
Nikole has a great "bedside" manner. I liked that, rather than having me sitting in a gown discussing my health, we sat in her office and talked (and I was fully clothed). She was very straight forward in telling me about latest scientific research and best practices for women's health and wellness. The women at the front desk in the waiting room were also very helpful and professional. Thanks!
Doctor Ostrov was great, but for a 10:45am appointment, i wasn't actually treated until after 11:15am - not ideal! I luckily didn't have a tight schedule that day but know that it could be an issue in the future if timing is so lax.
She was so warm and caring. Explains everything, have not seen a doctor like her in a long time. Wonderful.
I had a great experience in Dr. Ostrov's office. She is kind and professional, and I only waited for about five minutes.
She was great best GYN doctor I seen so far!
Very professional and cordial, great location, no wait time, and very friendly and helpful staff.
She was very patient and explained everything well. Its too bad she does not deliver babies though, so I will have to switch to an OB/GYN when I get pregnant!
Very thorough but quick! She made me feel very comfortable and answered all my questions. She really made sure to get to know me in order to provide the best possible care.
She was excellent. Extremely knowledgable, evidence-based, caring, and non-judgemental
She was very professional, friendly and informed! Would highly recommend.
She was straight to the point and answered all my questions.
Dr. Ostrov is consistent. Every time I have seen her she has been friendly, professional and takes time to talk with you. I never feel rushed. Her bedside manner is fantastic. Highly recommend.
She was very friendly and straightforward, which was appreciated since this was my first GYN appointment ever. Office staff were very nice, and the wait wasn't long at all. Had a short interview with the doc and then an exam. Was in and out in less than an hour.
Dr Ostrov is soooo nice! I don't know anyone who looks forward to their annual gyno appointment, so when you have a doctor that makes you feel 100% comfortable it is extremely reassuring. Being a new patient she walked me through everything and how it worked at that office and what i should expect. I was in and out in under 35 minutes. She was professional and quick. (but not too quick that i felt rushed. quick in a way that i liked) She asked if i had any concerns or wanted to discuss anything and then took the time to listen in the event that i did. The staff was super friendly and personable. not in a way that was invasive or overly familiar, in a way that made you feel like you picked the right office. and i agree that i did!! Highly recommend.
Dr. Ostrov was extremely welcoming, approachable and warm. She explains everything you could want to know about how she treats patients, and more. She's also extremely quick to follow up and return phone calls.
Dr. Ostrov was incredibly helpful and patient with my question. She was thorough in her responses and made sure that I felt comfortable with everything we discussed. On top of that, she was very quick, but didn't rush through any topics I wanted to discuss with her.
Dr. Ostrov was smart, easy to talk to, and efficient. I was also in and out of the office in 40 minutes, which I am pretty sure is a record for doctor's visits in the City!
Dr. Ostrov was thorough and kind and made me feel super comfortable with a not so comfortable appointment. Really, who likes seeing their OBGYN? :)
Pelvic exam and pelvic ultrasound were a breeze! Minimal discomfort. Dr. Ostrov is fast (but not rushed), thorough and very personable. Highly recommend.
Saw another doc at the same office and was turned off. I liked the front office, however, so I decided to give another doc a try. Dr. Ostrov was fantastic - attentive, thorough, friendly, and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend her!
Dr. Ostrov was extremely friendly and professional. She was very comforting and I would highly recommend her to anyone!
Visit was great, first time in the office and it felt comfortable and informative.
She made me feel comfortable and I was in and out in a timely fashion. I highly recommend Dr. Ostrov!
Dr. Ostrov is the very best doctor I've ever met. She's very knowledgeable and understanding. She considers all my concerns and provides very professional advice accordingly.
She is absolutely the best gyno that I have ever been to. I cannot recommend her enough. Thorough, thoughtful, never rushes her time with you. And just an overall lovely and personable person. I feel so lucky to have found her!
Dr. Ostrov was wonderful. She talked me through the pros and cons of my current birth control and made sure I understood everything I needed to know. She was very quick but didn't make me feel rushed. She is very informative. My only negative feedback is that I filled out all the Zoc Doc paperwork before I went (trying to save time) and had to fill out the same forms AGAIN at the office. I wish I hadn't had to fill out the forms twice. Overall, wonderful experience and a great doctor.
Nikole was great and personable. Enjoyed the visit to the office.
Great, as always.
My visit was great. The only negative thing about my experience is that I made my appointment with Dr. Ostrov, but a few days before I was scheduled to go I got an email saying my appointment was with someone else (I believe it was the PA). I was frustrated that it was changed without me knowing, but luckily I was able to call and change the appointment so that it was with the doctor (albeit at another time).
Dr. Ostrov is great. I have a hard time feeling comfortable around doctors. It took me awhile to find her but once I did, I couldn't be happier. I've been seeing Dr. Ostrov for about 3 years now and she is great! Very pleasant and personal. I really connected with her and I think that's very important when dealing with women's health.
She was so friendly, I felt very comfortable.
She was good and very encouraging.
She was very personable and knowledgeable. Definitely going back
All around excellent experience. No wait, completed all paperwork on line, so there was little to sign at the check-in desk. Dr. Ostrov was excellent - good at explaining what she was doing and why and made me feel at ease.
First time with this doctor. She is great makes you feel at ease. Talked me through everything and her office has a paitent portal where you can log in and view results which I think is great as most offices don't have this and you end up waiting weeks for a follow up phone call even of the results are ok! I would definitely recommend her.
Dr. Ostrov was very attentive and understanding..before she brought me into the examination room she brought me into her office to get a history and find out why I was there. She was great and I didn't wait at all!!
Efficient and timely. Highly recommend.
Excellent visit. Extremely personable, kind, and easy to talk to about any concerns. Does your prescription electronically, so everything felt very efficient. Wish she operated on weekends though!
Dr. Ostrov was incredibly personable and knowledgeable. She provided me with very useful information on the medication I was taking and did so in a friendly manner that made me feel comfortable. I would absolutely recommend her to a friend.
Dr. Ostrov was professional and knowledgeable - current on the latest research about my condition. I didn't feel rushed as I asked questions and she thoroughly reviewed my options.
Everything was "right away".Appointment was very rushed and she gave me a very rough manual pelvic exam after I've stressed to her that I was in a lot of pelvic pain. When I winced in pain, she made comments like "Don't scare my other patients". I came to her for consultation for a hysterectomy and felt she was very insensitive to that fact. Didn't offer any options and disregarded my interest in robotic surgery. Referred me to one of her pals instead. All this happened in less than 5 minutes!!Never again!! Don't expect any empathy from Dr. Ostrov. Furthermore she doesn't conduct surgeries anymore. Expect to research your own surgeon if you are in need of surgical intervention to relieve your pain.(Also, my reason for visit was not for ovarian cyst; it was for massive uterine fibroids so I don't understand why this was put as such) >: (
The Dr. was gentle and explained everything I needed to know. The only thing is that the wait time was very long, and once I saw her I felt rushed.
Amazing thorough evaluation, very kind comforting and genuine. highly recommend her!
Dr Ostrov is wonderful and intelligent! She made me feel very comfortable and made sure to answer any questions I had.
Efficient office, very nice staff. Only complaint is that they require me to pay upfront and wait for reimbursement on my visits, rather than netting out the price reduction at the time of service.
Dr. Ostrov is fabulous. Wished I had found her years ago! She was informative, friendly, personable and seemed to follow everything I wanted to discuss. Made a plan for future testing. The office staff is great, place is clean and new, easy to get to -- I couldn't be more pleased.
Dr. Ostrov had a meeting before the exam to talk about my medical history which was nice. She answered every question I had. The exam was extremely quick, to the point that it almost made me feel uncomfortable, was she really paying attention to everything. Besides that have had an awful time getting in touch with her after this appointment. It took 3 tries for my BC prescription to get called in, which was about 5 days of not being able to take the medicine. I ended up having to go back to the office to complain because I couldn't get through over the phone, and when I finally did, no one called me back. Now, for a completely different prescription, I am told I can't call and talk directly to a nurse or Dr. Ostrov, "if I want to leave a request, I have to sign on to the portal." So I have signed up for the portal, and now for the last 24 hours it has said "waiting for approval." I called and left another message telling the office this - if I can't leave a request on line or via phone, what is the point of even HAVING a doctor to help. What kind of doctor's office does? I would not blame all of this on Dr. Ostrov, but she is not worth the ordeal of dealing with this office.
Dr. Ostrov was very friendly and helpful. I will be returning to her for my OBGYN needs in the future. My only complaint was that I arrived at 11:45 AM for a 12:00PM appointment and was not seen until 12:30PM. The appointment was quick so I was still able to return to work on time.
Staff and doctor were all extremely friendly and efficient. Dr. Ostrov was polite and very knowledgable. Would definitely recommend her.
Terrific, personable, efficient, and fair.
Overall, she was very helpful and knowledgable. She even inspired me to kick start my weightloss plan.
My visit was great. Dr. Ostrov was fantastic. Very understanding and open. Will def be making her my new Gyn. =D
Very nice, helpful and meticulously explains everything.
Excellent doctor and warm staff!
Dr. Ostrov was professional, warm, and understanding. Her combination of efficiency in my treatment and taking the time to be thorough are commendable. I waited a long time in my examination room to be seen (45 minutes) but I've been to this office before with much much shorter wait times. Dr. Ostrov had to follow up with me about some tests, and she was wonderful on the phone as well.
The doctor was excellent - took time to explain issues and was very thorough and courteous with her exams. Very pleasant experience.
I Think that this place is well mannered they have respect and really do want to help people I would love for Nikole to be my OBGYN any day
Dr. Nikole Ostrov is really great. I, like most, strongly dislike going to the Gyno, but she makes me feel really comfortable about the whole process - from the exam to the questions that I have. She is great!
I didn't have to wait and the Dr. was phenomenal. I highly recommend.
Dr. Ostrov was great! She was very patient and answered all of my questions.
She is well informed. Gives you a realistic no chaser perspective of your body and any treatments that are available. But most importantly she values your opinion.
Super professional. Makes you feel so comfortable. Addresses all your concerns. Definitely reccommend her.
Wonderful doctor. Straight to the point.
Dr. Ostrov is wonderful. Very informative and pleasant appointment!!
While the Doctor is great, the office policies are outrageous - they keep a credit card on file for charges. I will look for another gynecologist because of that.
Dr. Ostrov was very profressional and personable and I was seen right away.
I had a great experience with Dr. Ostrov and her staff. The office is very clean and organized, each employee was friendly and professional. I was seen right at my scheduled time, and never felt rushed during my appointment. 5 stars!!
Everything was great. The office was nice, clean, spacious. The visit was very well organized and managed, and Dr. Ostrov was very knowledgeable.
Dr. Ostrov is great!
Dr. Ostrov is the best. She is happy to answer any questions you may have and really cares about her patients.
SHE CAME RIGHT IN AS SOON AS i WAS IN THE ROOM- FASTEST DR VISIT I HAVE EVER HAD. VERY EFFICIENT WHICH WAS GREAT AS I WAS ON A LUNCH BREAK FROM WORK. NICOLE IS AMAZING AS WELL- I LOVE HAVING HER ARE MY DR.
She is very personable and takes the time to answer and explain everything!
it was great convenient and she is really informative and amazing
Professional, yet personable!
The front of office staff were efficient and welcoming. Dr. Ostrov was friendly and went through the exam quickly, but did not rush. I felt like she and everyone in the office knew what they were doing and left feeling like I made the right choice.
Dr. Ostrov is extremely friendly and warm. She answered my questions thoroughly and explained what she was doing during the exam. My appointment was very smooth and efficient.
Dr. Ostrov was awesome! She was so easy to talk to. She took the time to explain everything so that I could understand. She was patient and kind. She even had a great sense of humor. What more could you ask for?
She's very patient and friendly
Best doctor (and office) that I have been to NYC, hands down.
Highly reccomend. Makes you feel comfortable and great bedside manner
She was very easy to talk to- professional and engaging. Took the time to explain my condition thoroughly and answer questions that I had. She was realistic, honest, and balanced with her counseling.
Great bedside manner, made me feel really comfortable and was very understanding. I think I found my new doctor.
By far one of the best GYNs I've seen. She's very attentive to all my questions/issues/concerns even if they might sound silly to say out loud. She was even interested in my other health issues even though none of them were GYN related. The staff there are also very efficient and friendly as well.
Very professional while still being personable. Very gentle and considerate considering this was my first gynecological appointment. Thoroughly explained everything and reiterated what I needed to do so that I did not forget. Will definitely be making her my regular gynecologist!
Best doctor appt I ever head....no waiting.....she took time....no rushing
She is smart, personable, and listens.
Both the doctor and the staff were very polite and accommodating. They understood that I was nervous and helped me feel at ease!
Dr. Ostrov is fantastic! She is very attentive and down-to-earth and her office staff was incredibly helpful and pleasant. This was definitiely the most stress-free and comfortable ob/gyn appointment I've ever had!
Very personable and informative!
The wait time for me personally was long but that was because of my insurance. Anyone else was seen almost right away or waited about ten minutes, so I'll base it off of that. She was very very nice and eased my fears a bit. She even let me have my friend come with me and she was very polite about it. She was very clear and informative about additional options for me with birth control and wasn't trying to force them on me like I know other doctors of all kinds would. Her receptionists were courteous to me and kept things professional. She's officially my ob-gyn!!!
She's really great and personable!! Read all the reviews and I really liked her. She made me feel so comfortable and told me everything she was going to be doing. Felt like I could be completely honest. Great doc! I'll be recommending her to other people.
Thrilled with Dr. Ostrov and her team. Have received great care, and I look forward to an ongoing relationship. I regularly see Natasha for exams and to administer birth control and she is phenomenal.
Highly competent, warm and good at her job.
Dr. Ostrov has a wonderful bedside manner and is very thorough. Although I felt nervous at the start of my appointment, by the end I was totally at ease (enough so that my blood pressure dropped dramatically!) She addressed all of my questions and concerns, and I never felt rushed. Every now and again when I visit this office, there is a bit of a "wait time" issue. However, I have experienced this with other OBGYN offices and I think it may just be the nature of the work, that some appointments take longer than others. Everyone I have ever seen - front desk staff, nurses, NPs, and doctors - has been extremely pleasant.
Dr. Ostrov was extremely friendly and caring. She explained everything both before and while she was doing it and gave me several opportunities to ask questions.
I had some serious questions about discomfort during sex.She went through all of them super quickly and never looked away from the computer she was typing into. While she did help me by prescribing the proper cream, I felt like I could not ask her the other pressing questions on my mind because she wanted to keep the appointment short. I waited to see her and don't understand why I wasn't give equal time to feel comfortable about my condition. She made me feel like it was my fault.
The doctor was great. She had a very pleasent deminor about her,however, she was too quick for me. I alkso ended up waiting too long and that was not very encouraging being that this was my firts vist. I think that the doctor rushing and the long wait has to do with the way the doctor or her staff shecdule the appointments which does not brush good with patients.
My visit with Dr. Ostrov was great! The office attendants were extremely courteous and my wait, especially as a first time patient, was minimal (filling out of forms; payment of co-pay etc). Dr. Ostrov was personable and well informed. Did not feel rushed or uncomfortable. Would definitely recommend this office/doctor.
She was a great help and explained everything that she would do.
First time to see her (had previously seen a PA who is no longer with this practice). I thought she was great!
The doctor seems good and experienced. However the people working there are not. They had to do my bloodwork and the useless assistants poked my hand 4 times and it swelled up. She also complained that I dont have blood in my veins which was the most ridiculous thing ever. I did pass out after all this and the doctor did not even come to check on me. After all this drama they refuse to even give me my report and no one is ever available to receive your call. Also they never give you any information on your reports. They however keep telling you to do multiple tests and keep scheduling followups!
Very professional, knowledgeable and supportive during proceudres.
She was so welcoming and comforting about my situation, really a lovely doctor!
Dr. Ostrov was professional and made me feel very comfortable at my first appointment with her. I am pleased I switched doctors, her staff was welcoming and helpful too!
Nikole is very empathetic to those patients who have a difficult time with the OBGYN procedures. I will be back next year and have already told a friend about her, because she was that good of a doctor.
Dr. Ostrov was very friendly, seemed well-informed, was willing to give careful explanations, yet was still very efficient.
Wonderful personality and bedside manner. Responds to questions professionally and friendly. A pleasure.
Dr. Ostrov is wonderful!! She is very warm, and completely puts you at ease. She also takes her time, never makes you feel rushed, and thoroughly answers all your questions. Most importantly, she is extremely smart and very skilled. I wish all doctors were like her. I can't say enough great things about Dr. Ostrov!
Dr. Ostrov was condescending and dismissive. I had to pay an additional fee for some "extra pain assessment " at my first visit. I am an OB/GYN provider myself, and she did not attempt to include me in my own plan of care. She was also not current in her standards of care for commom practices. Also she has too many clerks at the front that call you back repeatedly- very annoying. I would not trust her with my health care.
Dr. Ostrov was great- very thorough and nice and helpful- so happy I chose wisely!
Doctor is great, wait is atrocious. I went on my lunch break and waited over an hour to be seen. The waiting room was packed when I arrived; all nine chairs were filled and I had to stand. They should be able to schedule better than this.
Very professional and extremely helpful
Wonderful, intelligent doctor. Very knowledgeable about all aspects of my problem.
She was very patient, super friendly and incredibly knowledgeable. Love her!
She was very nice and she made me feel comfortable.
Today was my first time ever seeing a Gyn and do of course, it was a bit nerve wrecking but my visit was amazing. Dr. Ostrov made me feel comfortable and at ease. She was knowledgable and patient and friendly. I'm so glad she was my first one because it made it go smoothly. I would recommend her to anyone. :)
She is very disrespectful as a person and in my opinion, incompetent as a doctor. I came in a couple of times. On a second visit she didn't even look at my records to refresh her memory, she just asked "you were here 2 months ago, I don't remember who you are, tell me again what's the problem". Also I found her manner is very demeaning. I do not feel comfortable when seeing GYN doctor and she made me feel even more uncomfortable and vulnerable by the way she talked to me -like I was stupid. She stressed how young I was, maybe that made her talk to me like I was a little girl. I was 28 when I saw her and I am well educated. Something else to note is I was very shocked by the questionnaire they make each patient fill out before they see her - it had several pages (!) of very explicit sexual questions. The questions are very descriptive and there were just so many of them on several pages. I had an impression this was some case study under disguise. I understand how sometimes sexual issues can have something in common with gynecological problems, but that questionnaire just went too far into too many details. Maybe more suitable for a visit to sexologyst. I do not recommend her.
Friendly and helpful office staff. Dr. Ostrov is very knowledgeable and makes you feel at ease. I definitely would recommend her to anyone looking for a good OBGYN.
This doctor came highly recommended and she and her staff lived up to the expectations. Dr. Ostrov makes you feel completely at ease and listens to all your concerns. She is professional, kind, and thorough. I've never experienced a more positive visit with any doctor of any sort. I greatly endorse Dr. Ostrov.
She really cares about her patients and actually takes the time to know you as a person. She wants you to feel knowledgeable and comfortable.
Made me very comfortable during my first visit. Very nice and has an online patient portal to request prescription refills, etc.
Great doctor, willing to answer questions. A bit speedy-She was concerned with getting down to business I suppose
Dr. Ostrov is really great! She is easy to talk to and helpful in answering any questions. However, as other reviewers noted, the wait is really long. I came during my lunch break and luckily got here before the lunch rush but I still had to wait about 30 minutes before being seen.
There was a long wait, but apparently the other doctor in the office was out so they were backed up.
I have endo and have been looking for a dr for the past few years, and i have finally found one! Dr Ostove was amazing! She listened to what you say and did not rush me in any way. I highly reccomend her. Her staff was very pleasant as well.
I have been searching for a good gynecologist for 2 years. Dr. Ostrov put me at ease. she sat with me for 30 minutes discussing my history before we even went into exam room. I felt very comfortable. The office staff was extremely friendly. I was able to print forms online and fill them out before I even got there so I only had to wait about 5 mins.
Thank you for being such a great doctor
Dr. Ostrov was very friendly and informative. And her staff were also very polite and efficient. I would highly recommend her.
She was professional but I don't remember her being the friendliest or with the best bedside manner. Friendliness (especially for an ob/gyn) is very important to me, so I had to look for another doctor I felt more comfortable with.
Doctor was so nice! It was my first visit so it took awhile to do all the paperwork, but overall was a great experience.
Dr. Ostrov is great! She listened to my concerns and offered good advice. Her office has an online portal where I can log on and communicate with her directly so I can get any follow up questions answered easily.
I just found my new doctor!!!
The doctor was very thorough. I was there for a second opinion about abdominal pain and Dr Ostrov was the first to give me a different diagnosis. The doctor also has an email portal where you can correspond with her, and she actually responds. Its great!
Super nice and knows what she's talking about. Everyone in the office was friendly and efficient.
Modern offices; great doctor-patient online communication system; attentive service from the doctor and her staff. Overall a pleasant visit.
Best OB-GYN I've ever seen, but the office was a bit scattered and the wait was long.
Great doctor, easy to communicate with, and right on time. A+++
She was great! first time going to a gyno since I moved to NYC and it was a great experience- easy to talk to, great bedside manner, made me feel VERY comfortable!
Both Dr. Ostrov and her staff were a pleasure. The staff walked me through all of the paperwork for new patient registration. I then waited maybe 10 minutes. It was nice to first be able to sit down with Dr. Ostrov herself for a medical history review before the exam. She was helpful and reassuring throughout...and answered all of my questions.
First time ever to a Gyno. I was extremely nervous but Dr. Ostrov and every one in the office were very nice. Aside from the excellent care given, the facility was very clean and the access to see what they wrote on your record online via username and password is kind of amazing. Your able to double check and review everything in case anything was incorrect. Every doctors office should have this. Really great experience highly recommend this doctor and the practice
I went to the appointment and during the interview the MD told me the appt needed t be rescheduled because she was not aware that I was there for pelvic pain which requires an hour time slot. Make sure if you schedule on line that you also call the office and tell them the nature of your visit or you will waste your time and have to come back again!!!!
Dr. Ostrov is awesome. She is very friendly and personable and made me feel comforatble right away. Her staff are professional, efficient and friendly as well. Please note that I am particularly anal about wait time and did not have to wait long at all.
visit was much shorter than expected, which worried me a little but nikole was very nice and put me at total ease.
Very professional, great bedside manner.. willing to answer any question and very informative. Nikole Ostrich, MD and staff very friendly, I will definitely go back and recommend her to anyone
It was my first appointment, and she left a great impression. I look forward to seeing her again!
Dr. Ostrov is everything that I've wished for in a Gynecologist! She’s very friendly, caring, warm, and patient. I highly recommend Dr. Ostrov to anyone that’s a little hesitant to seeing a Gynecologist.
Dr. Ostrov is extremely professional, warm and provides excellent care.
Dr. Ostrov is wonderful - easy to talk to and straightforward in sharing her knowledge. The office staff is young, energetic and professional. I've recommended her to friends who also had a great experience.
Dr. Ostrov and her team are so very friendly and put you at ease the moment you walk through the door. They handle all health matters with confidence and professionalism.
Extremely thorough, great listener, caring, nonjudgmental.
This was my first appointment with Dr. Ostrov and so far I am completely happy that I chose to see her. She was very sweet and understanding, and I found her easy to talk to. During the exam, Dr. Ostrov explained each thing she was going to do before doing it, what I could expect to feel, and she "checked in" on me to see if I was okay throughout. I will be back in a few weeks for a follow-up, but based on everything I know so far, I definitely recommend Dr. Ostrov.
Dr. Ostrov was professional, incredibly friendly, made what could be a somewhat awkward appointment (pap smear) easy and comfortable.
Sweetest doctor I've ever had!! Very professional while still maintaining compassion and friendliness.
Great Doctor! Very educated and personable. Will definitely recommend her to friends.
Again...I literally picked Dr. Ostrov based on location and she is the best OB I have seen. She has awesome bedside manners, totally explained everything and was like a girlfriend you can tell everything to...which is kinda what you want in your OB. Thanks Dr. Ostrov and thanks ZocDoc. You both rock!
Dr. Ostrov was wonderful. She listened carefully to every response, made appropriate comments and recommendations, explained each step of the examination, and answered all of my questions. She was busy but very efficient and effective. I feel comfortable talking to her candidly about my health and without judgment. I wish there were more doctors like her. Also, her staff was equally friendly and efficient. This is a very well-run office.
She was terrific. All my questions were answered and Dr. Ostrov took the time to make sure I was clear on everything.
Absolutely the best doctor I've ever dealt with. Professional and easy to talk to.
DR.OSTROV HAS A GREAT BEDSIDE MANNER IS KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT HER WORK. I FELT VERY COMFORTABLE AND WELL TAKEN CARE OF.

Dr. Ostrov was a pleasure to meet. Professional, friendly. Answers questions and listens. Would definitely recommend.
She was very professional and personable. She took the time to listen to and address all of my concerns. The office was very modern and clean. Reception staff was very professional as well.
This was my first time going to the gyno and naturally I was nervous. The office is very clean and cozy, and the staff were welcoming, helpful, and made me feel very at ease. Dr. Ostrov herself was equally helpful, she took the time to get an in-depth history and let me voice all my concerns. She also did everything to ensure I understood what procedures she needed to do. I'm actually looking forward to my follow-up.
Dr. Ostrov has a very disarming manner and made me feel really comfortable for my first appointment with her.
Dr. Ostrov was great. She took a lot of time with me, and answered any questions I had. She was very kind and non-judgmental. Highly recommended!
Her appointments last less than 10 minutes, barely gives you the time you need.
Very personable and listened closely.
Friendly and efficient. Great experience.
Dr Ostrov and her staff were absolutely wonderful. They made me feel extremely comfortable and I felt no pressure or rush of any kind. It was a great experience.
Dr. Ostrov was quick with the not so fun part of the examine and so friendly I forgot I was supposed to be uncomfortable. Will most certainly be back.
Wonderful experience. All staff was thorough and answered all my questions. Would highly recommend this doctor.
Had a great experience--doctor is friendly, professional,and informative. Hardly any wait at all!
By far, the best doctor's visit I've ever had. Dr. Ostrov is friendly, easy to talk to, non- judgemental, patient and understanding. She is genuinely concerned about patients' well-being.
Dr. Ostrov was wonderful. She made me feel very comfortable during my entire visit. The waiting area was also nice - a flat screen TV showing interesting medical trivia, a filtered water fountain and comfortable furnishing. I highly recommend this office.
A very caring doctor. I have been to quite a few doctors before that made me feel very uncomfortable, nervous and at times judged. During my visits, without a shadow of any judgments Nikole competently answered all my questions and concerns. The office was clean, staff very friendly. I would highly recommend this doctor and this clinic.
Great doctor! She was very attentive and performed a thorugh exam without making me feel rushed.
Amazingly friendly and down to earth. I felt like we became instant friends. I trusted her completely with all of my information. The office staff was also organized and professional. It sounded like everyone enjoyed their work environment, which puts patients like me at ease.
I HATE going to the doctor; but I really really liked Dr. Ostrov and would recommend her to thsoe of us who are cotor-shy!
She was wonderful! She was very kind, patient and made me feel very comfortable. I would definitely recommend her.
I would highly recommend Dr. Ostrov. Both her and her staff are extremely easy going and very professional. Dr. Ostrov took her time to listen to my patient history and took her time in answering any questions I had. I'm so glad I finally found myself a great gyno after many bad experiences with others in the city.
This is the BEST gynecologist that I have ever been too. Friendly, personable, sweet, but straightforward and very clear and informative. I'm so happy that I found her. I feel like I'm in safe hands (finally).
Dr. Ostrov was very professional and quick when I finally got to see her, but I waited for over an hour, which I found unacceptable. The good thing about her office is all the electronic communication available.
She is knowledgeable and helpful. She treats patients with courtesy, a doctor who cares.
She was wonderful and put me at ease.
I needed a new Ob/Gyn after my insurance changed, and am so glad I found Dr Ostrov. She made me feel very comfortable during my appointment and I appreciated the thorough discussion we had before my exam. I highly recommend.
She was very understanding, easy to talk to and open to my insights and thoughts.
I think Dr Ostrov is amazing, she takes interest in her patients and offers honest suggestions/advice! She's terrific and super friendly!
She was extremely nice and helpful. She listened and gave us great advice.
Great experience - Dr. Ostrov is very professional while being super friendly at the same time. Will definitely be going back.
Dr. Ostrov is WONDERFUL!! I really cannot say enough good things; I have recommended her to all my friends, and they agree! She completely puts you at ease, and is so warm, even when talking about uncomfortable topics. She is also extremely accessible by phone or email if you need to speak about an issue. By far the best gynecologist I have ever been to.
I felt very comfortable speaking with Dr. Ostrov.
She is very nice and warm~
Dr. Ostrov is a fantastic doctor. I would highly recommend her!
Dr. Ostrov was very pleasant and personable. She made the appointment very comfortable, and I was pleased with the experience. This was only my first appointment with her, but based on this experience I would recommend her to others.
Dr. Ostrov was excellent. She took the time to sit down and speak with me and was highly informative. By far the best gynecologist I have been to. The office was also clean and modern and the administrative staff were kind and courteous. I would highly recommend this physician.
Dr. Ostrov was great! I really appreciate her questions and our conversation before the actual exam. She wanted to get a sense of what my lifestyle is like before prescribing anything. It is rare to find a doctor who actually cares about a patient and not just making money. I've found my doctor!
