Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Zbarsky was professional, kind, and very thorough.
She was so sweet and non-judgemental. She made me feel really comfortable. Also, I felt that she was really thorough and really knew what she was doing. She ran tests that I needed done that other doctors didn't think to run.
Great appt, quick, easy, friendly, clean office!
She was great. Very helpful, super professional.
The kind of office where you will be asked to book appointment for getting blood results, billed for an office visit if you bring up anything not related to physical (so they get a co-pay) and have receptionist tell you to be quiet and let you know that you are snippy - yea, hope the two extra co-pays were worth losing a patient and the review.
I'm glad this Docto's office took my insurance. What an amazing experience. The nurse was very nice as well as the Doctor. I recommend this doctor if you need someone who is nice, sweet and does her job to the fullest. It was easy to set up a future appointment too. They didn't treat me any less for not being a patient that doesn't pay out of pocket.
Oksana Zbarsky is a great doctor, always take her time to listen my question. She makes me feel relaxed and comfortable with all procedures I had done in her office. She has a great team as well. I am highly recommend Dr . Zbarsky.
Lovely professional lady
If I could give these people 0 stars I absolutely would. Not only did they give me an EXPIRED yellow fever vaccine (their vaccines were labeled incorrectly) but they called ME to reschedule my appointment, AND THEY STILL DIDNT HAVE THE RIGHT VACCINE! They only informed me that they didn't have the right vaccine after I had taken the subway downtown and waited for 15 minutes in their waiting room. Any true professional would make sure they had the vaccine before trying to make a cheap co-pay dollar off of me. When the doctor walked in he had no idea why I was there- did he even GLANCE at my form before he came in? Furthermore, the nurse was rude and wasted no time informing me I had gained weight (mind you, it was no big leap and I think as a woman I am aware of my weight gain). The front desk must've made me give them 5 cards before 1 worked on their machine. And I made sure to call my card companies AFTER the appointment because they gave me such a heart attack telling me that my cards were expired. What a horrible experience the whole time. This is the first review of any kind that I've written because I have never felt so inclined to tell people CHOOSE ANOTHER DOCTOR DO NOT GO HERE. If you're wondering why their office is empty and why they have so many appt constantly available- this is why.
very detailed and thorough
very detailed and knowledgeable
Wonderful doctor, I have been going for almost 3 years.
I advice people to choose this doctor
Awesome! Thank you
I have been a patient for 3 years and have happily recommended her to family and friends. She and her husband are wonderful doctors, and the staff is very nice as well
My visit was fruitful. She paid attention to details and was thorough with all my complains. I'm happy I found her.
Rd. Oksana Zbarsky is a fantastic doctor, she is always takes her time to listen my question or concerns. She makes me feel relaxed and comfortable. This office have a great team of nurses and front desk as well.
Dr. Zbarsky's very professional and respectful. Great staff and clean office.
The receptionist was the rudest individual I have ever come across in professional setting. She refused to fax or call in prescriptions that the doctor insisted I take. After begging her to please do so, she said she would get to it later because she was busy placing stickers on files. I then got to CVS a few hours later to find out she never called it in. I emphasized how crucial it is because I am leaving the country the next day. Now I am left without my medication because of a rude, dismissive, careless receptionist. I will never return to this doctor and advise others to avoid their bad attitude and carelessness.
She's a lovely doctor who has lovely staff. The office itself could probably use a renovation as it smells a bit like stale pee. Not nauseating but just a hint of something stale. And not bad enough to make me want to leave. That being said it wasn't dirty now did it feel unsanitary. I'm sounding contradictory but the office had carpet if that explains anything. Anyway I'll definitely return. She's pleasant and efficient where it matters!
Great bedside manner and very thorough.
I like dr oksana she is helpful encouraging, passionate about her job. She understands how to interact with her patients and she's is determined to get them back on thier feet.
The doctor is very nice and has a great bedside manner, however as the other reviewer indicated below, speaking with their receptionist is very frustrating. Similiarly, she refused to ask the doctor to call in a different generic version of a prescription which I was prescribed. The general frustration has led me to consider finding a new internist.
Dr. Oksana was very helpful. After my general blood test, her secretary called me promptly to let me know that I was anemic. Though I didn't go to a follow up yet, I intend to after the new year to see what options I have in alleviating the situation.
The Zbarsky team have been my doctors for years now and I honestly can not say one bad thing about them !!
Receptionist can be rude but I love the doctor and medical assistant. Great bedside manner, intelligent, thorough.
Dr. Zbarsky is such a sweetheart, she comes right in to greet you and makes you feel very comfortable. She is my first and only OBGYN. I would definitely recommend her.
I found this place through my insurance network and am glad I did. I felt comfortable around Dr. Okasana as she asked me questions to get to the root of my knee pain. It's been only one day but my knee is healing. Thank you!
Very thorough and personable. She shared the practice with her general practitioner husband, who is also fabulous. Highly recommend.
Great experience, they make you feel very comfortable. Everyone is nice and very organized, Marissa is a great Medical Assistant. Dr. Zbarsky great Doctor! Front desk lady is very professional. Loved that practice.
This was just an okay appointment. It was a bit hard to communicate with the staff, and it was unclear 20 minutes after my arrival if I was checked in or if the doctor was even there. The annual physical exam was short, and I was not told to fast in advance of bloodwork. The pre-check in information I submitted via ZocDoc did not make it to the staff, so I had to fill in all the paperwork again in the office.
vert good doctor
I've been going to Dr. Oksana for over a year. She is by far one of the best doctors I have ever had. Very thorough , concise and intuitive.
The Dr took her time explaining what was wrong with me and how to take the medication prescribed while expressing concern that my illness not progress to a worse stage.
Dr. Zbarsky's manner was welcoming and sweet. She took her time to answer questions and was very nice. The waiting room in the front, however, needs redesigning. They have a more spacious one in the back. If you speak an Eastern European language you will understand what's being said on the shows playing on the small screen TV there. Well, you'll understand everybody actually. Most of the patients speak a foreign language and seemed from the old country. Also, they need to plug in air fresheners or install an air cleaner. It smelled kind of dank in there.
Great service and pleasant office.
Dr Oksana is AMAZING! She's CARING, KIND and an excellent DIAGNOSTICIAN. I was having stomach problems for several months, almost everything that I eat got me very sick. I was feeling hopeless. In my first appointment with Dr.Oksana I felt that finally my health was in hands of an excellent doctor. She was GREAT! She listened to me, asked questions and explained that for the symptoms I was having the most likely diagnostic was food allergies and sensitivity, but that I need to do some texts to confirm. I was so surprised! I had been to the others doctors and they all said it was acid reflux. I had all the texts done in her office right after the appointment, which is very convenient. Dr Oksana Was ABSOLUTELY right in her diagnostic! My stomach is good so far. I can't than her enough for taking care so well of my health and for being so caring every time I need her.I highly recommend Dr OKsana for anyone who need an EXCELLENT Doctor!
Great! Very professional staff. The office is clean and quiet sans screens.
I went in for a very stressful issue. She was very nice and understanding, but she barely spent any time with me. Her office staff made me uncomfortable. She also drew blood and I never heard back from her about the results. I called her office a few times but was never able to reach anyone. It was sort of a peculiar experience. I think she is a competant doctor, but I would not return to this office.
Very thorough doctors and they really listen to the patient. Virtually no wait time. Great experience!
Dr. Zbarsky was very thorough and the office was very homey.
She is the best doctor in New York in every way! The staff is great as well! Always very caring and flexible!
Dr. Zbarsky seemed like a good doctor. However, I was the only person they spoke English to, it made me a little uncomfortable. I also couldn't understand half of the things the doctor or the nurse said, so it didn't help with the experience either. The door wasn't closed when I spoke to the doctor, so I didn't feel as comfortable telling her all my problem.
I always enjoy seeing Dr. Zbrasky -- She is warm, personable, knowledgeable and thorough. I feel comfortable in her care and would recommend her to friends and family.
The treatment received from the receptionist was absolutely horrible. She was dismissive and rude. And I have been going to this doctor and was please with mr. Zbarsky but this woman and the receptionist were totally unprofessional
Very thorough and kind. Took her time and made great dr recommendations for dermatologist, etc.
while I thought Dr.Zbarksy was a pleasant individual, this review is more aimed at the establishment as a whole. I'm very disappointed with my visit. They sometimes have an ultrasound tech there and I feel they perform uneasesary sonogram exams. A few times already they find any excuse to perform a "neck ultrasound" to see if blood is "flowing ok to the brain". I was having some bone pain and they performed an ultrasound of my legs (as per the male Dr.Zbarsky not Mrs.Zbarsky). Really? I work in healthcare and aware that this is probably to charge my insurance more money. They never follow up on your blood work (unless something turns up). Other places call even if everything turns out ok just to follow up. The front desk lady is not personable at all and the office is run down a bit. I suggest going elsewhere for proper care.
Excellent doctor. Very kind, patient and professional.
She was very nice, soft spoken. She made me feel comfortable.
Once I saw the doctor, my exam was quick and painless. I'll be back next year. :)
She was extremely thorough and knowledgeable. Very nice and caring as well. Will definitely be back to see her!
The doctor is really great. You might have some delay with the front office. Unfortunately it is always like that, if the doctor is great, the receptionist is not. But other than that, all other personnel is very very professional. I was pleasantly surprised with such a high level quality.
I have had the most difficult time communicating with this doctor's office. The receptionist is unwilling to help with any request that is not simply done. I could never get her to submit my prescriptions to my online caremark mail order service and have had to called multiple times to get refills filled to the pharmacy even though they should have been good for a year. I do not recommend this office unless you want to argue every time you need something from them. I also had to call to get my test results back and only knew they were ready because my insurance had been charged for a long list of tests I didn't even know they were doing. was distracted by the fact that I could have a general exam and OB GYN in the same appointment, but the hassle after has not been worth it at all.
Love this Dr.! She is very kind and thorough
Great Doctor , Very polite , knowledgeable , and apply extra care to your problems , Highly recommending
No doctor I have gone to in the past 2-3 years measures up to Dr. Zbarsky.
She was just wonderful! I was very pleasently surprised. Really took the time to explain everything, asked a lot of relevant questions, was very attentive. The nurse was terrific as well.
this was my first time seeing Dr. Zbarsky. she was very kind and comforting during my pap. i've also had a few health issues in the past year, and she seemed concerned about that as well. i felt comfortable talking to her, which is SUPER important. she didn't rush me and listened to what i had to say. the only downside was that her accent made it a bit difficult to understand sometimes.
i loveeeeeeeeeeeeee her...my doctor is the best she is fast precise and to the point
Dr Zbarsky is excellent in NYC . No wait, very clean facility.
It was great she answered all my questions and gave me good information. She's such a great doctor and knows her stuff
I love her. She's precise, to the point, and warm. Every time I've seen her she is spot in in figuring out what medications I need/what illness/potential issues I might have, and can recommend the proper next steps that need to take place. For instance, a while back in inspecting my thyroid and neck, she noticed a small lump and after recommending a sonogram for my thyroid, it was found that a lump was there exactly where she had felt--thankfully, after a radiologist checked it out, it turned out to be benign, but I'm thankful she caught it just in case! Her staff and nurses are very friendly and quick. I would highly recommend her as a lady doctor!
fast and professional
My favorite doctor in the city! Highly recommend!
Doctor Zbarsky was very nice and easy to talk to. She answered many questions other doctors had brushed off repeatedly, and was overall very helpful.
It was great. She didn't just do the minimum. She asked various questions and ran other exams that were not scheduled to make sure everything was okay.
Dr. Zbrasky is caring and kind. Her accent makes it hard to understand at times but she is very patient. Her staff is always pleasant and I can always get in to see her quickly. Would recommend to others.
The best doctor visit experience i ever had Polite , professional , understanding and caring
Great! Usually dread going to the doctor's but she and the staff make it pleasant..
She is extremely kind, patient, and educated. I would definitely recommend her to all of my friends and family.
she was great, knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable
The best doctor in New York! Best staff ever!
I have seen this doctor several times. She is very attentive, professional and caring.
She is wonderful and offered up a lot of great options for everything I had concerns about, highly recommend!
She was wonderful!
I had a really great experience from beginning to end. The office has a very comfortable feel, and Dr Zbarsky was very thoughtful, listening to all my questions.
Made me feel comfortable, answered all my questions and even helped me with my insurance questions. Would def recommend.
Very sweet and professional woman.
Dr. Zbarksy was very thorough and explained things in a very clear manner.
I am very happy I found Dr. Zbarsky, she is now my permanent doctor! Very professional, friendly, knowledgeable! Thank you!
I really liked her and the care she gave me. She listened to my complaints, asked me all the right questions (tons of questions about past history), and even offered to test me for more things than I originally went in for. She definitely made me feel cared for. She ended up prescribing me a few new medications which I think will really cure the issues I've been having. LOVE HER! USE HER!
She was very good....I've decided to make her my primary doctor
I thought that she was very professional and thorough.
Professional, thorough, and very nice!
Was ok. Seem to know the problem right away.
I was glad to find a doctor who listened attentively to my issues without dismissing them. She did tests to specifically address any problems no matter how small they may have seemed.
I HAD A VERY POSITIVE EXPERIENCE. OFFICE STAFF AS WELL AS DR. OKSANA WERE PROFESSIONAL. NO WAIT TIME.
Dr. Zbaraky was great, I saw a doc before she came In who didnt introduce herself and she asked me the same questions that the doc ended up asking me again. I think they could of skipped that step but I guess all docs have their own process. Over all the doc was good, I've been to her before and this was a follow up.
I had an extremely disappointing experience at this office. I visited Dr. Zbarsky for an Annual GYN Exam hoping to get some advice on birth control options, particularly the Depo shot. However, she was extremely unhelpful and downright disrespectful to me as a patient. When I expressed my desire for a more reliable long-term birth control solution, Dr. Zbarsky said baldly to me, "Why don't you just keep using condoms?" When I mentioned the Depo shot, she dismissed it out of hand, saying it would "wreak havoc" on my system if I had not previously used hormonal birth control. I walked out of the office feeling more confused and worried than when I had arrived. To add to this, Dr. Zbarsky gave me a blood test but the office never sent the results, and when I called later they refused to mail, email, or fax the results (or any of my other records) unless I came to the office in person (taking another day off from work). I later went to Planned Parenthood, where I was in and out the door in half an hour, dealt with extremely friendly and supportive nurses, and got the Depo shot -- which turned out to be the perfect option for me despite Dr. Zbarsky's completely unfounded scare tactics. If you are looking for birth control advice, find a doctor who will respect you and your needs rather than a physician like Dr. Zbarsky who dismisses you out of hand.
Dr. Zbarsky was attentive and helpful. I look forward to my next visit.
Dr. Zbarsky is a hidden gem in the medical community. I think she deserves five stars in each category from my visit. She listened, she gave good medical advice and really made me feel like she was there to help.
Dr. Zbarsky makes me feel like she really cares and she is very thorough.
She is wonderful. She is very knowledgeable and takes good care of her patients. No waiting time. She is the best! I will never change my doctor again.
She's now my permanent doc!
She was a little curt, but not cold and uncaring. The exam was fine but she was not very thorough - I was there for an annual exam and she didn't check everything she should have.
She is great!
She is truly very kind and professional. Feels like old times when doctors actually cared about their patients. Love her!
She was quiet, not as friendly as I personally would have liked but I can see other patients liking her.
Wonderful doctor! Very knowledgeable. Highly recommend
Dr. Zbarsky is wonderful both as an ob/gyn and a primary care doctor. Appointments are quick but she will not make you feel rushed. Her office is lovely, too, it's warm and quite cozy actually. Highly recommended.
She was very professional and made me feel like she was smart and organized and knew what she was doing. She made me feel like I wouldn't have to worry about all the medical issues I came in with, that she was going to approach them with thoroughness and intellect.
Lovely doctor and staff! She made me feel incredibly comfortable during a usually awkward gyn exam. I was also pleased with the friendly staff. I will be returning and recommending her office to others ;)
Great doctor and staff!
She was absolutely wonderful!
I scheduled my appointment only a few hours before arriving at the office. I could not find my wallet and the receptionist was immediately figuring out how to resolve the issue. I was very lightheaded after having my blood taken and Dr. Z, the nurse, and the receptionist were all there to take care of me immediately. I'm glad I found a doctor whose office I know I will gladly go back to!
Dr. Zbarsky and the office is great. I have been looking for a doctor in the city for a while. She is at the UES office 3 times a week so its great. Half way through my appt the secretary told me that my insurance didn't cover the appt, so Dr. Zbarsky immediately stopped as she didn't want me to have to pay. They also told me we could do a payment plan, if I can't afford to pay it all at once. I am in the process of getting new insurance, so I'll be going back to her a in a few weeks.
Very knowledgeable and friendly doctor. Spent the time to get to know my medical history and make recommendations based on my lifestyle. Made me feel very comfortable.
To the point, pretty thorough, gave other welcome health-related suggestions unrelated to main complaint
Very comprehensive exam! The doctor really took her time and listened to all my questions. In addition, the office staff was very kind and helpful. I highly recommend Dr. Zbarsky and her practice.
She is absolutely the best .
Cold, unfriendly, difficult to understand.
Everyone was extremely helpful and cheerful. I would recommend this office to anyone who needs a caring Dr who will take their request and ailments seriously.
Dr. Zbarsky was very nice and very thorough. She spent a good deal of time with me discussing my medical history and was addressed every concern I brought to her attention with thought and detail.
She was very helpful and patient. Quite lovely as well.
It was a great experience
I felt very comfortable with Dr. Zbarsky. Her staff was pleasant and she listened to all my questions and was very thorough in the exam.
Dr. Zbarsky was excellent, she listens and she explains things to you when you ask for clarification. She has great bedside manners, and she took her time with me.
Dr. Zbarsky is very thorough and patient. She did not make me feel as though I was being rushed, and instead made me feel comfortable to explain and ask questions.
Dr. Zabarsky is wonderful. She is very kind and very straightforward. Her office is small and friendly, the staff is very welcoming and she made me feel extremely comfortable. For OBGYN visits that can sometimes be a little uncomfortable, she was terrific.
I will always be grateful to Dr. Zbarsky. She is very kind, supportive and understanding. My health improved tremendously since i began seeing her, i feel so much better now. No doubt that she is the best. Her clinic staff is extraordinary and always professional like her.
the receptionist was sweet, one of the nurses kind of intimidated me, but she seemed very busy. the woman who did my procedure explained everything i would need to know when i was confused. overall, a very nice staff who are quick and efficient and know what they're doing.
I only saw Dr Zbarsky for a few minutes during my appointment. I saw another Dr there named Sofia Braylovsky. She was AWESOME. Very patient and explained everything and answered all of my questions and really listened to everything I had to say. Gave me helpful suggestions and solutions for my medical concerns. I highly recommend Dr Braylovsky!
She was very thorough and patient, explaining everything to me and making sure I understood. They do a lot of the stuff in house, like drawing blood, etc. which is nice so you don't have to spend your time running around to all these different testing facilities. She gave me two prescriptions and then also told me which OTC medications I can use instead in case my insurance didn't cover the prescriptions which was wonderful!
She was very attentive and informative. She answered all my questions and addressed my concerns. The only part that was a bit off-putting was her male physician's assistant who was this tall, lurking, mumbling young man who did not seem very professional.
I made a 9am appointment so that I could get into my office in a timely matter. I was told that there would be paper work to fill out before my appointment as I was a new patient, so I arrived 20 minutes early per their request. Thank goodness it wasn't raining because I was locked out of the office until 9:15am. I did not even get an apology! Then they tried to charge me a co-pay for an annual physical which is covered under my insurance. The physical itself was very topline and I felt "what was the point" less my blood work. I would not go back to this office and I would not recommend to a friend.
Everyone at the office was polite. I interacted with the front desk person, the nurse, the physicians assistant and Dr. Zbarsky. The physician's assistant was great and then Dr. Zbarksy came in to confirm diagnosis and I left shorty after with prescriptions. I felt that the appointment was long enough to ask any questions that I had and I will definitely go back in the future for sick and wellness visits.
Very gracious. Courteous staff and nurse.
This was the most amazing and easy and warm gynecological experience! The office was really inviting and so much better than the usual clinical look offices usually have. Dr Oksana and staff were very welcoming, kind and caring. I will never go anywhere else.
My visit was excellent. There was no wait time, and Dr. Zbarsky was professional and efficient. I wasn't away from my office for more than 45 minutes, travel time included. Her office is located conveniently close to the Lexington Ave.-63rd St. subway stop. I'm also glad that in addition to being able to do annual paps, she is also a general physician. I highly recommend her if you're in Manhattan.
She is very kind, sincere and professional. I had a great experience; she is the best doctor I ever had. Her staff is very friendly and professional too. Appointments are on time and her clinic is beautiful. I was very surprised to see negative reviews about her. I wish I could give more than 5 stars!
A very nice and pleasant woman. She made my visit comfortable.
I absolutely liked Dr. Zbarsky. She was very professional and answered all questions thoroughly. Did you not rush and had a great bedside manner.
Very thorough and very thoughtful
The doctor was difficult to understand and was condescending during the entire visit. That wouldn't have bothered me as much as the fact that she had me wait close to an hour without any apology or explanation. There was one other person in the office. Her receptionist checked all of my insurance information over speaker phone, which sincerely bothered me. I will not return to this doctor.
Cash only for co-pay! There is a DR a few blocks away. Very open and friendly, easy to talk to.
Very thorough. Great attention to detail. Very professional. Bedside manner: somewhat cold.
Very thorough and nice!
I had an amazing experience with Dr Zbarsky. She's thorough and pleasant to talk to. The office is very nicely furnished. The staff was helpful, patient, and enthused.
Very cooperative with the patience and willing to answer all your questions regarding your concerns about your health situation! A friendly person and very sweet!
She was an excellant doctor and very professional.
