Dr. Frenkel was great! Very friendly and made me feel comfortable. At the end of the visit, I wasn’t sure if the tests I wanted done were performed. They had no problem giving me a blood test. Only thing is Ifelt Dr. Frenkel could’ve spent a little more time with me, but I understand he’s busy.

Dr. Frenkel was knowledgeable, attentive, and made me feel very comfortable. I came in as a new patient for a routine visit and even though I'm sure he had a busy schedule he went through my exam efficiently but did notrush me through my appointment as doctors have in the past. He made sure to ask me if I had any questions about anything as we went along. He was great!

He seems to know his stuff about my condition. However, when I was telling him about my history he made a face like if I was lying which even my husband caught and it made us both uncomfortable. Then he didan ultrasound to check my ovaries and made rude comments about how my PCOS is so bad that he hasn't seen it that bad in a while how it's like the school example. Wow way to make me feel worse about an already hurtful situation. Not going back ever. Wait time wasn't that bad though.

Kept it short and sweet. Good bedside manner. First time going to a male GYN and I’ve got to say he was nicer than all the females I’ve been to (lol). I felt a bit rushed but at the same timeI didn’t mind cause I had to get going.

I was grateful to make a same-day appointment last year when I came & I was seen right away when I came early which was very nice (4:30 PM appointment). Dr. Frenkel was overall helpful and listened to my concerns, butwasn't too nice about some things, like when I was extra squirmy/uncomfortable because I'm not great at these types of exams, he made a comment that made me feel bad. Overall got what I came for and alleviated my concerns (wasn't sure if I had a UTI or yeast infection or something), gave me a pap smear which I never got results on but I think that's normal.

When Dr. asked what method of birth control i was using & i told him nothing, he gave me a very demeaning look & stated "nothing?!" Did not appreciate this as it made me feel as i cannot be honest with him. Will be finding a new doctor.

I had a horrible ob/gyn who wait time was ridiculously long and always canceling my appointments. I went to zoc doc and it was very important to me to find a doctor with lots of experience and who has accreditation. Ifound Rubin Frenkel MD who had great bedside manner and schedule the polyp removal right away he would be my doctor for now on. He is highly recommended by me.

My visit with Rubin Frenkel M.D. was not a a great experience. The place was clean and neat but the Dr. made me feel unwelcome. He acted as if he didn't even want to treat me. He didn't take the timeto listen to me or discuss my individual needs. He appears standoffish and in a rush to get me out of his office. The worst communication ever with a gyn or any medical Dr.

I think they forgot that they put me in the room.I was the only patient there before a woman and her baby arrived. They put me in room 2 so the carriage could fit in room 1 but the doctor went into her room first.

After waiting for an hour and a half he kept asking his receptionist if he had another patient to which she said yes. He huffed and puffed after being told he had another, which made me feel awkward. Then when Iwas finally seen by him he spent a total of 2 seconds checking me without even telling me what he was doing. He didn't perform my procedure and made up a ridiculous excuse as to why, although I know it's because it was late in the day. I could bearly say goodbye or even ask what he just did before he was out the door. He actually ended up following me out of the building. So livid that I wasted a checkup here.

Office is very nice and comfortable. The staff was also helpful and the wait time was not bad. When it came to meet with the doctor it was extremely rushed. He preformed the exam and briskly walked out. I felt uncomfortablebecause I had questions, and had to ask the staff after I left the room if I could speak with the doctor. I had a follow up appointment to have a minor procedure done, and was informed later that the doctor was covered under my insurance but the anesthesiologist they used was not covered under my insurance. I had to fight with insurance because I did not know the doctor under my insurance, performing the procedure, was using a anesthesiologist not covered under my insurance. I was recently informed via mail I am up for my yearly checkup, but unfortunately I will not be returning.

He didn't care. He rushed through the entire exam, did not take the time to explain anything. He kept interrupting me while I was trying to ask questions and voice concerns. He even opened the door while I was changing withoutknocking first - then didn't even apologize! I will NEVER refer anyone to him.

He was fast and swift, I hate being in the GYN for too long drives me insane. As for his front desk staff 2/3 needs to get fired. They really were very rude one of them just stared at me likeI had a third eyeball...(Russian staff and I'm Black)I don't know they made super uncomfortable. But the doctor himself was pretty cool. Like he didn't try to establish a relationship really but I'm ok with that. Especially being that I had to get to work right after. Fast service and I'm out your face! And he was really relatable.
