Verified Patient Reviews
It was a lot going on for my first time getting a Pap smear. There were 3 people in the room all doing different things and it was overwhelming. I did wait 45 min to be seen but it didn't really annoy me just because I had no schedule today. The doctor is nice, it was just a lot going on.
Dr. Famuyiwa is amazing! She is so friendly and generous with her time. I was able to talk through all my issues with her and she made me feel 100% comfortable. I've been in the market for a new gyn and she's definitely the one for me!
I've always love Dr. Famuyiwa. Even when she moved her office I did not mind the travel time. She answers all your questions, she doesn't rush me through the appointment, and she properly diagnosed my PCOS. I will always go to Dr. Famuyiwa!
Although the wait was long (around 35 minutes), the staff were helpful and overall seemed concerned/respectful about my time. Dr. Famuyiwa was very kind and personable, and seemed like a genuine, caring doctor. I felt safe and comfortable and knew that I was in good hands.
Really great. one of the only doctors in the area to be able to actually diagnose my issues.
She does not rush you and she's very engaged. You feel comfortable talking with her which is very important. You can tell she cares about patients. It's rare now days that doctors give advice about wellness in general. They rush you and ask are there any questions, see you next year!
I have had two appt. with this doctor and everytime I've waited an hour just to have a regular appointment! There were several people in the office that complained of the long wait. They shouldn't schedule so many patients if it takes this long.
She took her time to explain things that me and my husband needed to know...was very friendly and professional..
There was snow this day so it caused a delay in the amount of time it took to see her, but she was the best doctor and made me feel very comfortable!
Such an amazing doctor. You can tell that she is passionate about her work and cares about your health. Looking forward to working more with her.
Didn't close the door while asking me personal questions and other patients were well within earshot. Also didn't appear to listen to me and rushed me out. Would not go again.
Very informative, direct & honest. All the things we ask for but sometimes it is hard to hear. Only need to work on patient wait time
I have mixed feelings, I know she has a job to do as has to deliver your results to you as they are. I would have appreciated more kindness and a true sense that she is connected to my issues and vested in helping me get to my happy ending.
The wait was a bit long, but Dr. Famuyiwa was professional, courteous and concise. Would recommend this doctor.
Very comforting, attentive, and professional!
She is great and she helped me with my problem and she knew what exactly I had and I had been misdiagnosed
Dr. Famuyiwa was very courteous and professional. I'm so glad I found her on Zoc website.
office was a little disorganized
The office was very clean. I was waited on right away. No wait time. The doctor was very efficient and she took her time with me.I would recommend her.
I have PCOS, and Dr. Yemi gives me hope. On the first visit, she gave dietary and exercise advice and already did an ultrasound and gave me prenatal vitamin samples and very comprehensive directions and explanations for lab work. I can't wait to get pregnant!
I waited for almost an hour to see the doctor. The doctor was nice, however she did not give me the medicine I asked for but a generic one that messed up my cycle. She also sent my prescription to the wrong pharmacy, after I gave them the correct info. It took the front office over 30 min to try to find the address for where I should go do blood work. I ended up just googling it and finding it myself. After I got my blood work done, they did not update my lab reports on the portal they had me use, and I had to call over 4 times to get them to do so. The front desk is a total mess. They lied to me several times when I called, saying the labs were up when they weren't, then I called back and they said they never did the labs. On another occasion when I called, they only put up partial information and after calling them over 6 times now, they have still not updated all my lab work. I am afraid to even call again, because each phone call is like 20 min long. Overall, they are by far the worst gyno office I have ever been to. They are completely unorganized and the doctor should fire whoever is working the front desk immediately. Horrible customer service. Talk about an organizational nightmare! Do not go here if you want to efficient and helpful doctors, medical information and if you ever wish to see your lab results.
I arrived to the doctor's office about 5 minutes late (not a minute more). When I arrived, the receptionist told me that because I was late they had taken a patient before me (who arrived extremely late) and the doctor wouldn't be able to see me for another 2 hours. I was in utter shock. It would have been appropriate to call me when I was a couple minutes late to ask if I was on my way. I never imagined I would be penalized so harshly for arriving 5 minutes late.
While the wait time was a bit long, Dr. Famuyiwa took the time to listen to what was wrong and didn't try to sum up my symptoms without taking a look at me. She actually diagnosed me with the RIGHT condition (I have gone to about 4 or 5 doctors over several years before her) and she ordered blood tests that I have long asked for. I will be going back to her.
her nurse was wonderful!!!
She was very kind and thorough, which I appreciated. My appointment time was changed due to some mix up between them and ZocDoc. Although I was rescheduled the same day, close the original time, the wait was awful and I was in the office for three hours, two of which I sat waiting. Her desk staff wasn't very friendly or personable either. They weren't mean, but I wasn't greeted as I came in. I don't even think I got a smile.
Very affable and takes the time to get to know her patients and and understand their concerns before getting to the business of things.
I believe Dr. Famuyiwa is an awesome doctor! However her office staff needs to improve their customer service skills.
She was very persnable and made me feel at ease as a new patient
Professional and friendly office although at times they seemed disorganized. "Dr. Yemi" as called by the staff was great and knowledgable about my needs and offered great advice.
She is very nice and open person. Very detailed information about patient' s health is asqued and I really like that. It helps to remember things that we forget sometimes. I recommend Dr. Famuyiwa Thanks Doctor!
I felt as if all attention of Oluusemisk Adesanya Famuyiwa MD and her staff was on me.....it was a wonderful experience.
It was awful, long waiting times, I had to call several times for the results. Staff wasn't particularly friendly. They sent me bills for the copay, even though I had paid, had to call them to solve the issue.
Easy to talk to and very engaging
I was dissappointed;she did not introduce herself to me ,also did not ask for my opinion to start taking my medical history while there was a student with her;that was very unprofessional;she had a poor manner in approaching her patients;nothing relected what was writing on her flyer;the office is not well kept and looked so disorganized.I waited over 50 minutes without knowing what was going on,yet the waiting room was empty! I left that office with a word "no going back".
Dr. Famuyiwa is a nice doctor - I've had doctors that had better bedside manner but I've also had doctors that were far worse. She completed my pap in a comfortable, relaxed, and swift amount of time which is always important. I had no idea that she was a fertility specialist prior to booking my appointment, so maybe that's why she seemed a little rushed with my appointment for a general GYN annual (my first visit). My wait time was just about an hour, which I didn't really appreciate, especially since I had to be shuffled in and out of rooms during my visit as the doctor was working with multiple patients at once.
I think she is an awesome doctor. She is very interested in my concerns and thorough in her explanation of my medical issues and detailed in her plan of action. I was extremely comfortable with her.
