I liketo the the doctor and not an assistante. I like to speak with an honest doctor who not try to "sell" you additional exams and procedure. I saw so many gynecologists in NY !

Immensely rude, didn't give any good information just kind of snapped at me, talked down to me, didn't listen to anything I said because she had to shout over me mid-sentence. Very rough with the speculum, didn't explain a single aspect of what she was doing.

The wait time to see Dr Santha was super quick and I was very pleased with the nurses in the office. However, Dr Santha was extremely cold, and was more concerned with the computer than with my questions and concerns. Herbedside manner was not what I need or want in a gynecologist. Not to say I dont trust her, but her personality showed lack of compassion.

First of all, the staff working in front werent friendly at all. If anything, they all seemed like they had attitudes. However, everything else was satisfactory until I met the doctor. At first impression, she didn't seem novice at all andpretty much smiled a lot and shared her knowledge. I had her take a ps sample to see if there was anything abnormal due to my past experience with it. She informed me that she would call if anything was detected in about two weeks, so I impatiently started waiting. Around the beginning on the second week, I receive a call from her indicating that my results came back, that I had abnormal cells due to an hpv virus and that I required a biopsy as my follow up. I began freaking out and even started crying. When I asked her questions to ease my mind, she literally seemed so uninterested and even chuckled a little after I yelled at her for giving me one worded answers. At this point, I was furious and so I decided to go to a gynecologist in the city which I was extremely content with. He did something similar to a biopsy due to the advancement in technology and called me in 5 days telling me that my results came back normal. I was baffled. It's either she doesn't know how to read results or she was just trying to scam me for money. I really urge everyone to read reviews and take them into consideration because things like this happen and it's not a pleasant feeling to go through.

Only thing I really have to say is that her bedside manner wasn't great, it could be better. As a young new patient I would've preferred her to be a bit more comforting. The appointment itself was quick and she got straight to business.

While wait time was close to non existent, bedside manner left me a little unsatisfied. She didn't really take her time and as a new patient I would have thought she would have done a more thorough examination. Nothing really wrong, just didn't leave very satisfied.

She is one the worst doctor I have ever met in my life. She is very rude and does not know how to communicate with patient. She is just fooling people and making money by referring cases to high risk doctor.

It was quick but felt too quick. She walked into the room while I was almost naked and didn't give me anytime to change making me very uncomfortable removing my clothes in front of her. She barely looked at me asshe spoke with me keeping her head turned to the computer the whole time. She reluctantly answered my concerns and questions I had about my body and my issues. Made me feel stupid at some questions I asked and didn't understand medically, as if I should know. I wouldn't come back. When I asked about options for treatments she gave a few here and there and when I decided to go wth one over the other she seemed visibly annoyed. Too many bad experiences with the doctor but the staff is nice otherwise.
