She talks to you face to face, not to a computer! Also front desk folks and ancillary personnel are efficient and professional.
She is patient, fun, and knowledgeable!
She is lovely! Gentle. Very smart and personable. Highly recommend her to all the ladies out there :)
Dr. Rustamova was excellent. Spent a lot of time with me listening attentively and discussing my history and issues and I was able to get an annual check-up and ultrasound the same day which was great. Very professional and understanding - would definitely recommend. Also I was seen right away and, since I had completed most of the paperwork online, the total appointment time was only about 30 minutes (almost all of which was doctor/scan time)!
Doctor Rustamova always takes time to listen to my concerns and to discuss treatment options when needed. She is very knowledgable and always acts highly professionally. I highly recommend this doctor.
Amazing. Put all of my worries to ease. Was up to date with medical news and practices. Highly recommend.
I am very pleased with her manners and her knowledge. The office staff was also very professional and efficient! Highly recommend this office!
I have been coming to Dr. Rustamova for about 3 years now and she is always personable and kind. She really listens to you and does not rush you. She respects your time and is extremely knowledgeable. Her staff is friendly and respectful as well. Always a good experience with this office.
I loved Dr. Rustamova. She is extremely smart and well versed, thorough and caring. Would recommend to any one of my female friends.
she is amazing. parient, kind and always available to her patients. would highly recommend
I love Dr. Rustamova. She is attentive, inforamtive, and makes me feel very comfortable.
My previous doctor retired and I was very nervous to start all over again but Dr. Rustamova was so understanding and sat with me with such patience that I feel so relaxed and no longer anxious. She also has the most caring and wonderful as well as efficient staff that I have seen in a long time.
Very informed and very personable! Dr. Rustamova always gives me peace of mind.
This Dr. was spiritual and focused on many holistic/ Ayurveda remedies. That's not to say she did not offer some western medicine options, but her main approach was the first. She paid close attention to symptoms my body was having and was very educational about what my body was telling me. I feel pretty lucky to have found a doctor that I really like.
Extremely welcoming from the moment I walked in. Front desk was professional and kind. Dr. rustamova was amazing. Definitely made me feel comfortable. extremely detailed and thorough. I am more than happy with my experience. Thank you!
Dr. Rustamova was the most caring and patient doctor I have ever met. She spent a great deal of time accessing every angle of my symptoms to make the most thorough recommendations. I feel lucky to have found such a gem of a doctor!
Dr. Rustamova was patient, and was ready to take her time to explain things to us. The whole experience with the staff was pleasant.
She's quite lovely in every way and very easy to talk to
Dr. Rustamova is the best! She explained everything, understood my concerns and did all the lab work during my visit. Hope to visit her soon to supervise my pregnancy.
She's seriously a great doctor and I'm so happy to be able to see her
Dr Rustamova was fantastic! Knowledgeable, thorough and very personable. She got to the root of the problem immediately and gave me recommendations that were easy to follow. The office staff was friendly and welcoming. Overall a wonderful experience. Highly recommend.
She is really helpful, and really gives advice based on you personally, not based on what she's trying to push. So happy to finally have a OBGYN that doesn't push birth control, but rather finds alternate solutions to the issues you might be facing.
Very lovely and sweet doctor. I've visited her three times already and never had to wait longer than 5 minutes. She was great answering all of my questions, even broke out a pen and paper to draw diagrams to aid my understanding. I've gained confidence and trust in her in a very short period of time.
Always an incredibly warm and welcoming visit - everyone is very friendly and accommodating. Dr. Rustamova truly takes the time to listen to any questions and answers in a thorough and caring way. So grateful to have found such a wonderful doctor.
Really amazing doctor and staff! Highly highly recommend.
Dr. Rustamova is honest, empathetic and very helpful when it comes to talking you through your options. She's been my GYN for almost a decade now.
The front desk can be pretty rude. You may be overcharged for routine procedures. No one particularly explains the prep for any procedures that require prep. The doctor can be a little sell-y as well as informal (emailing instead of calling).
The people at the front desk were lovely, and Dr. Rustamova was kind although far too vague about the issue I'm come in for. I knew as much going in as I did when I left, but it was the technician Samantha who ruined the entire experience for me. She was dismissive and rude, talking down to me like I was a child. I found her so unpleasant and toxic that I will never, ever return.
Dr. Rustamova was great. I came in for an annual exam and pap. Before the exam she sat down to discuss any issues I wanted to ask her about. She was super thorough and helpful in answering my questions. I could tell she was very interested in helping me get to the source of any health issues rather than just treating symptoms. Check-in/Reception was fine. Everybody was nice, they explained to me what procedures/tests went towards my deductible and what was fully covered, and I didn't wait too long to be seen.
She is so caring and patient! We not only talked about my annual exam, she even took the time to speak to me about many other issues that are affecting my life. Completely unnecessary but shows just how much she cares for her patients.
Very knowledgeable, professional, patient and supportive. The best office visit experience in New York so far.
I absolutely loved her. She speaks to you not only as a doctor but as a human being. She's personal and warm while maintaining professionalism. The whole office was so lovely and took all the time needed to make sure my concerns were addressed and to make sure my insurance would cover anything before they went ahead with tests that could have really cost me later. Best experience I've had at a doctors office in New York. Thank you!
She and other doctors aare great. but, they really need to do something their administrative team. They're not helpful. I had an issue this morning that most doctors would consider a medical emergency and yet they talk to you like you're begging to see them for no reason. They're fine for an annual. anything beyond that I suggest elsewhere.
The office is very nice and the staff were very professional. Dr. Rustamova was extremely helpful in telling me my options and making sure to let me know of any expenses not covered by my insurance. Overall, she seems knowledgeable, friendly and good at what she does.
Good office bisit
really takes the time to talk, understand, and diagnose properly--can tell she really cares and wants to do the best thing for you
Front desk great service. Doctors and associates are amazing, and put you at ease during your exam.
Dr Rustamova is very caring and friendly, highly recommended
I had to ask a lot of very basic questions to get the information I needed from this doctor about a surgery she was recommending I have to remove polyps in my uterus. It felt like there was no need to explain anything and that I should just trust her as a doctor, which would be fine had I been given basic information like where the procedure was without having to ask.
Dr. Shahnoz was amazing. She sat and really talked with me for a good while about my health and my hormones, and had good advice for even the most common things like pms symptoms. She didn't rush me, she really cared about giving me a good experience and making me comfortable. So happy I found her.
I recommend Dr Rustamova to friends and family she is very informative and is good with patient care wonderful human being
Very compassionate and friendly staff. Dr. Rustamova took the time for a full consultation and was both kind and professional throughout the visit. Highly recommend!
Honestly I'm in the health field and her bedside manner is no good. The language she uses to tell a patient of their symptoms is too casual. Needs to be more professional and use more medical terms. I get she wants to make her patient feel comfortable but not to the point where you forget she's a doctor and you leave the office highly confused and mis informed.
Amazing office, doctor and team. Love them!
Amazing. She made me feel so comfortable during the whole visit. Her staff were also very helpful and made me feel at ease.
Appointment was good however no one called with the results and year later got unexpected bill. so doubt that ill use it again.
Polite, professional office staff. Arrived very early for my appointment and was seen within 20 mins. of arrival. Doctor Rustamova takes time to speak with you, update medical history and answer questions. I would highly recommend her practice.
Dr. Rustamova and all of the office assistants are incredibly helpful and personable (and even have a sense of humor!). Very happy with this office.
Great! She seems very down to earth and knowledgeable. Doesn't believe in using medication unless you have to.
Very professional answer all my questions
The doctor was great. Everyone who worked there was nice and very considerate. Definitely liked the vibe of this office overall.
Great staff and very informative. Dr. Rustamova was friendly and caring.
She is a very knowledgeable and highly professional physician while also being very warm and personable. Nice office staff also.
Was encouraged to do a standard preventative test without being told that this would re-categorize my appointment from a free well-woman visit to a doctor's visit, requiring a co-pay. Was never contacted about those test results, including no response to my emails inquiring about them. Had to confirm my email address three different times for the front desk worker to get it correct to send me that bill that I was not anticipating, and then received no response to my complaint that they should have told me beforehand that I would be charged.
Dr. Rustamova was really warm. She went over many things without me bringing it up relevant to women in my age group over Forty.
Dr. Rustamova is extremely personable and professional. She has honest and open conversations with you and takes the time to listen. She gained my trust in our first visit by inviting me into her office before an exam just to talk and ask questions. This is a very good way to feel less pressured/weird about being undressed and speaking with your doctor. I would highly recommend to any female!!
Love her! Super friendly and smart
My visit was great . I received so much important information about possible treatments or options to comfort me in different stages of life. Doctor is knowledgable , well informed on new non invasive treatments. The blood work and sonogram is done right at the office. I totally love this one stop service on very busy day.
Doctor Rustamova is professionally thorough about exams and medical history. She's also a friendly and comforting person who shows real concern about her patients' well being. Her staff are also friendly and efficient and create a relaxing environment.
Dr. Rustamova is extremely knowledgeable and professional. I appreciated her diligence in understanding and proactively addressing any concerns and questions that came up. Front desk staff and assistants could probably elevate his/her professionalism, as well as provide more proactive service, specifically in regards to communication with insurance provider.
I've been going to Dr. Rustamova for years, and it seems like the quality of the visits have been declining. My total time spent with her during this last visit was no more than 7 minutes. After she was done with the exam, I asked her a few questions about some of my health conditions and wanted to ask more, but I felt like she cut me short and said you can get dressed now and she left. And she once used to explain things in detail to make sure I understood but seems like that service is no more. I felt very brushed over. Maybe she was having a bad day, but I'll be seeking a new doctor for my next gyno visit.
She's great. Staff is quick and professional.
Caring, fun and easy to talk to.... thank you!
She was incredibly nice and easy to talk to. She took my concerns seriously and answered all questions. Definitely recommend.
Overall negative feelings about Dr Rustamova and her office, felt a tad uncomfortable throughout the appointment and after realized that I was not at all happy with her approach, she cited personal beliefs about when its appropriate to have children (while I understand the scientific ideology re: women having children after 30, I dont think its appropriate for a Dr. to lambast the idea either, she is there to state facts and provide some guidance, not impart personal opinion. She also displayed some attitude when doing my exam, I had stated that I was currently at the end of my cycle, but she clearly wasn't listening as she was surprised when going to examine me. Front office staff (one person in particular, can't remember her name) was extremely rude and abrupt.
Extremely personable, easy to talk to and patient. It was my first time seeing her and she made sure we talked first and made sure I was comfortable throughout my entire time with her.
I think Dr. R was genuinely trying to be helpful, but she expressed a negative opinion about my psychiatric meds (without knowing me at all). She suggested I should "try other things" to deal with depression so that I'm not "dependent" on antidepressant medication. She used herself as an example, saying that she "chose" not to get diabetes by making good choices. Sorry, but I'm not choosing depression. The insinuation that I am was insulting and demeaning. Also, I didn't get a sonogram because they couldn't for some reason..machinery issue I think. Not what I came for, all around.
Great, clean office and quick visit.
She is lovely and knowledgeable. I felt very comfortable discussing my concerns with her and appreciated her recommendations.
This doctor is great! The best bedside manner I have ever come across. It's like having a long chat with a girlfriend, who just happens to have extensive knowledge of the issuse at hand. In the end I cut the conversation short, kept thinking to myself doesn't she have other patients waiting (how long have we been talking). Absolutely loved the visit, and I never say that about a gyno exam. I was referred by a friend and I am please.
Dr. Rustamova was very professional and personable. She made time to make sure I understood what the issues were.
Dr. Rustamova is the best physician I have had the pleasure of seeing. She is professional, knowledgeable and kind. She took the time to ask me questions, answer mine and took her time. It is so refreshing to not feel rushed while at the doctor. I will not go anywhere else!
Dr. Rustamova was absolutely fantastic; she was genuine, warm, and approachable, and she made me feel instantly at home. She was also thorough and had a holistic approach in mind, which was assuring. I am glad I have found her.
I loved my visit with Dr. Rustamova. This is the first time I've been to a Doctor where I felt cared for. She took time to listen to my concerns and was very informative. I would highly recommend her!
I really enjoy Dr. Rustamova however when speaking to her about concerns that I have I always feel as though she is brushing them off as nothing and not taking them seriously. Additionally I had an ultra sound on my breast after finding a lump and the office told me that I would hear results back after 3-4 days. I never heard back from her office and after calling the office several times over almost two weeks they finally let me know my results which I thought was extremely unprofessional and not right to do to someone. The office staff is TERRIBLE! every single time I call I get hung up on at least 3 times OR no one answers and I get sent to a 3rd party service that takes the message and relays it back to the office who calls me back if they feel like it. Overall I don't feel like she is providing the same standard of service as she did when I first started visiting the office several years ago so I am moving on to another doctor.
The office was uncomfortable, it's shared with a cosmetic laser place and the receptionists and other women in there were very snooty and angry. My appointment was unconventional to say the least, and my wait was very long even though they called me to come in early. Wasn't for me.
Dr. Rustamova was extremely thorough, informative and had a great bedside manner. Definitely put me at ease on my first appointment with her! Her staff was amazing; so nice and helpful! I would highly recommend her!!
Dr. Rustamova is very smart and kind. I felt like she actually cared about my well-being not just within her field. She was comprehensive and very professional.
I very much liked how my visit went, which is not something one can usually say about a doctor's appointment. The doctor was very friendly and helpful, she took her time to address my concerns and explain things. The staff was also very nice, they helped me with all my logistics questions and were very welcoming.
She is wonderful....i love how she takes her time to expalin things.....shes so down to earth...very much knowledable......shes just great......i walked out her office like i knew her for years.........
Loved my visit today such a pleasant doctor and the staff were great!
Dr Rustamova was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!
This is the best GYN appointment i ever had i was a new patient & the front desk staff was welcoming very knowledgable the office is nice and clean they also do cosmetic procedures such as laser hair removal Dr.Rustamova took the time to talk to me in her office about my concerns and my exam was quick and efficient i highly recommend this doctor she is amazing!
The office never called me back with my results. I have called twice already, and have been told that I would receive my test results but nothing has happened. They did remember to bill me though!
When I actually get to be seen by Dr. Rustamova, she's awesome! The physician's assistant is nice as well. My only criticisms are with the office administrative staff. Wait times are little bit ridiculous, even when there aren't that many patients at the time. Also, the staff will constantly ask you if you've called your insurance to find out if certain codes for testing are authorized, even after you've told them that you're fine. It literally happens about 3 times per appointment and I've been a patient for 6 months. Super annoying. Regardless, I feel that this office is great and that's why I'll stay put. Good doctors are hard to come by in NYC.
She was helpful and informative. Great bedside manner.
Excellent doctor: knowledgeable, never in a rush, always addresses all the concerns, very comfortable atmosphere.
First, Zoc Doc gave me the wrong address. Then I waited 15-20mins. But it was worth it! She was professional, easy to talk to and took the time to speak with me about any concerns, my daily routines etc. She seemed to really understand me and offered some information, that even though a lot of it I already know, she had a nice way of delivering information on topics that were really good to hear again. Intelligent and insightful, a really nice balance of traditional and holistic practices which is super important to me. Its never really a pleasant experience but this was actually great.
Love her - really thorough, very kind, easy to talk to.
As a first-time patient, Dr. Rustamova met with me in her office before meeting me in an exam room, to discuss any concerns I had. I didn't have any concerns but she seemed to know the field very well and I asked her some questions I was curious about she gave me very thorough answers. They exam was very quick and very professional I'll definitely be going back.
It was an excellent appointment. Got in there and immediately was put through. I asked to get some test done and the nurse was kind in recommending me to call the insurance to make sure they covered the cost of the blood work. It was a very sweet gesture that demonstrated the level of patient care and understanding. I highly recommend this doctor to anyone!
Love and trust my doctor! Never lets me leave without giving me options on a solution. I've been going here for a few years now, and she somehow manages to remember general information regarding past procedures or appointments. I highly recommend her.
I like this doctor but the wait times have been horrendous lately. I will probably have to find another doctor to go to. I waited an hour in the exam room before I was treated.
All my questions were answers and I felt comfortable and happy with the course of action we decided to take. It was convenient and easy to make an appointment and I appreciated the professionalism in the office.
I felt very comfortable with the doctor. The staff was professional. Overall, I had a very positive experience.
Very knowledgeable, and made the appointment super comfortable.
The doctor was delayed
She is a very good professional. Very patient and sweet. Makes you feel very comfortable.
She had double bookings every 15 minutes, I waited an hour and twenty minutes to see her, and by that time I was so frustrated I didn't want to spend any more time asking questions. She apologized for the delay and said, "all it takes is one patient" in a, YOU understand, kind of way, and I just thought, one patient that you actually have to provide medical care to? I was only there for birth control so I only needed a yearly appointment, but for any person who actually wants an on-gyn should definitely see someone else.
I did not enjoy experience with this doctor. I found the office to be cold and unfriendly. I already had a primary OBGYN in another state, but had to get a check-up for an IUD I had gotten a month prior. She pushed a bunch of unnecessary tests and exams on me even though I had JUST gotten my all my exams and tests. I felt manipulated into agreeing and she did not appear to trust my explanation or the rationale of my other doctor. I rarely complain about these kinds of experiences, but I left feeling extremely unhappy and will not be back again. Everyone wants a kind and understanding OBGYN that makes you feel comfortable. This doctor is not that.
Dr. Rustamova definitely made me feel comfortable and was very informative . She took her time to sit and talk about options . Everyone else in the office was also very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended
Iv'e been seeking Dr. Rustamova since she took over the stellar practice of Dr. Ruth Steinberg. She is an amazing doctor--warm, insightful, eager to answer questions and always has a lovely (sunny) disposition. The office help is beyond efficient; they too are quick to help and troubleshoot. I was especially happy to note during today's visits that the office has been re-arranged--it's more spacious and the ultrasound room is bigger, brighter, cheerier. I love this practice and would recommend them wholeheartedly to any woman who wants a stellar gynecological experience.
I love coming to Dr. Rustamova. Sometimes she runs late but that is because she actually spends time with you answering questions and talking to you about your health. I feel like I often have to speed talk to doctors in NYC and I never feel that way with her. She is also overly careful with my health which happens to be a positive for me. She doesn't overlook my concerns and validates them.
Dr. Rustamova was very thorough and professional.
Little access to the doctor, never followed up, and didn't seem willing to answer my questions and concerns.
The office staff was nice and friendly. Dr. Rustamova is a great doctor. She was kind and understanding and I never felt rushed. She took the time explain things to me which really helped. Great experience.
She was amazing. Extremely patient, accommodating, a great listener, and very thorough. I'll be highly recommending her.
The doctor is great.
A professional, thorough exam that makes the patient feel relaxed. Highly recommend Dr. Rustamova who will put your mind at ease and work with you through any issues.
She was amazing. I filled out my paperwork and met with her 10-15 minutes later (not at all a bad wait for an OBGYN, especially since she's the only doctor in the office). Since I was a new patient, I met with her in her office, rather than the exam room. I've never done this with a doctor before, and it was wonderful. I suppose it's a thing of the past, but we chatted for about 10 minutes, during which she heard my history, learned about me, and eased my anxieties (I don't know what woman LOVES getting pap smears). During the exam she was conversational while casually letting me know everything she was doing. It was over in a flash and she was friendly and knowledgeable the whole time. I highly recommend her!
Dr Rustamova is quick and to the point with regular yearly exams. She will, however, put some pressure on you to start taking prenatal vitamins and try to conceive a child if you are of prime child-bearing age and/or married.
Fast and efficient. Answered my questions thoroughly. I never did receive results of a test though, which I was told to expect via email within a few weeks.
She is an amayzing doctor, who actually takes her time to evaluate each individual.
I would recommend Dr. Rustamova to anyone. Her bedside manner was exceptional. I was nervous for the appointment (to say the least), and she was incredibly patient and kind. I've been to many doctors who made me feel bad for my condition and Dr. Rustamova sat down with me before my examination and calmed my fears. I've never left a doctor's appointment happy before but I left grateful and relaxed today.
Dr. Rustamova was really nice and efficient. She made me feel very comfortable and her staff was wonderful as well.
Very professional, spent as much time with me as it was necessary, no rushing, answered all my questions and concerns. Highly recommended.
Doctor was concerned and professional. Took time to discuss my health issues completely. Very reassuring. Physician assistants were pleasant and competent.
I have been seeing Dr. Rustamova for years, even while she did not take my insurance. I've always felt comfortable with the doctor however there have been instances when I wasn't told I'd be seeing a PA instead of the doctor. This unfortunate situation lead to incredible mismanagement in care and information given regarding genetic test results. Once I alerted Dr. Rustamova to this situation (months later, after no follow up from her office) she apologized profusely and assured me I would only see her going forward. I hope this is the case.
She's great! The whole staff made me feel very comfortable! I totally recommend Shahnoz Rustamova.
The wait was ridiculous for the only two people in the office. She wanted to then chat about my mental well being as I was there for a checkup and in an obvious hurry. First time and hopefully last time. The girls at the front...RUDE.
I've been seeing Dr. Rustamova for years. It really depends on the day, but sometimes her bedside manner is not the best. She has been very thorough with some issues I've had in the past and I know that she will tell me the truth, but she doesn't sugar-coat anything, which I actually prefer.
Dr. Rustamova was by far the best GYN I have ever been to. She was caring , intelligent and encouraging . I highly recommend her to anyone seeking a thorough visit from a professional with amazing bedside manner. The entire staff was phenomenal .
She was very thorough and effective - totally recommended.
Very pleasant experience.
She spent time with me and addressed my concerns.
There are two things I dont like about this place 1. The office is shared with a laser service. So every time I come in I get asked if I am there for laser hair removal or to see the doctor. 2. The bathroom! Its not working, there were no paper towels, and I needed to give a urine sample. So pretty gross feeling. Overall I dont feel like I am at a reputable place.
So easy to talk to. Very professional.
I absolutely LOVE her!
Dr. Rustamova is the most knowledgeable Gynecologist I've ever had. If you're looking for someone to baby you, Dr. Rustamova is not for you; she gives you the FACTS about your body and educates you on what WORKS in order to assure the healthiest outcomes for your health. I've been seeing her for 3 years now, and I look forward to starting a family under her care one day.
Dr. Rustamova is quick, efficient, and proficient. I feel comfortable having her take a pap smear, etc. I feel a bit like I am rushed in and out, but not too terribly. My biggest issue is with the follow-up - I've had to follow up for test results in the past, and also always have to take the initiative to book y next appointment.
Dr. Rustamova is one of the best doctors I've seen in my life. She really listened to my concerns and made sure I don't have any questions before the visit was over.
Great GYN. The appointments are quick but at the same time you feel like you are getting all of the attention you need. I've recommended many friends to her and they have had similar good experiences.
Quick and informative!
Rushed, perfunctory, and not considerate of the patient--had me move room to room, mid-exam, in medical gown, carrying rain boots, winter coat, bag, clothing, bra, underwear, etc. No warning, no offer of help. Didn't weigh or measure, just asked if I knew how tall I was/how much I weighed. Asked very few questions, but told me she felt bad for those kids in daycare all day when I told her my kid's in daycare. Way to support your women patients. Not going back.
Dr. R. is very kind & personable. I didn't have to wait very long for my annual exam appointment. Even her staff are great!
Dr. Rustamova is great and always understanding of things! I would suggest that you make an appointment in the morning because by the afternoon things normally get fairly backed up and I've waited for over an hour before.
I saw Dr. Rustamova for the first time yesterday and my appointment with her was wonderful. She listened to my concerns and then provided thoughtful, nuanced feedback. I would certainly recommend Dr. Rustamova and will be seeing her again in the future.
I would definitely recommend this doctor she was very thorough in her examination, took the time to find out overall mediacl history, answered any questions I had and gave excellent explanations.
She is great! Knows what she's talking about and very professional.
She and staff were both SO helpful.
I was given a sales speech about donating to women's charity- which doesn't at all bother me except that she spent more time on that then she spent with me. She did a once over on me, then told me that I am 30, and if i have a man, I should get pregnant now. She didn't give me any facts, and didn't want to talk to me about me reasons for or against, just that "things will work out"... I panicked and had many conversations with friends and family before finding a new doctor who spent time with me discussing my options and having an honest conversation about fertility and the best time to get pregnant. This was about a year ago. I will not be back.
Dr. Rustamova was very forth coming with information. She took time out to discuss with me any concerns or questions and was very comfortable. All of the people that worked in this office were polite and courteous. Definitely recommended
Very professional, rare to find. My highest recommendations.
went there 2 times. I waited more than 1 hour before i see her.
She always takes time to talk with you about any concerns and listens to what you have to say. She is honest and friendly. Her staff is prompt and courteous as well.
Smart, warm and professional. Makes my experience comfortable always.
The doctor is very personable, provides a thorough examination, and has an excellent bedside manner.
She's quick and decisive and informative. May not be the cuddliest doctor but that matters less to me. The nurses were very nice as well.
Dr. Rustamova was the best OBGYN I have visited to date. I went for a regualr 6-month check up; however after mentioning that I was 28 and wanted to have a child in the next four years, Dr. Rustamova took an extra 30 minutes detailing the pros and cons of waiting to have a baby. I left feeling very informed and was grateful she had challenged me in the best way possible so that I could better plan for my future.
good conversation and thorough check
I have been a patient at this practice since it was run by Ruth Steinberg. The quality of care unfortunately has gone downhill more and more each time I go in. Once she heard that I do not want to have children, she doesn't ask any questions, doesn't offer to do follow up blood work (that I normally do every year), and the whole process takes less than 10 minutes. The office is packed with people and I feel more and more that this is just a practice designed to turn over as many patients as possible.
I have been going to Dr.Rustamova for over a year now and she is great! Always ready to answer questions, is very informative, and she makes an uncomfortable situation feel very comfortable. She is a great doctor and i would definitely recommend her to anyone.
Dr. Rustamova's strengths are that she first suggests dietary trials and supplements to relieve discomfort for various ailments. She doesn't go straight to pills unless it's necessary. The downside is that the people in her office, particularly at the fr
Best ob/gyn I've had. Good bedside manner and always makes me feel comfortable. She is very knowledgable also.
The doctor and other specialists in the clinic are great, but the secretaries are simply nasty. Considering they are the middle people, it makes going to the office very unpleasant. I actually have avoided going back, because the three times I have visited, I've been shocked by how abrupt, untactful, and rude the people at the front desk have been.
Great visit. She got my old implant birth control out and taken care of. It was doing more harm than good and she put me in a great direction.
I love Dr. Rustamova. She is professional and answers all your questions. Her staff, however, while very pleasant are less than efficient and you will always wait more than 30 mins for your appointment.
Dr. Shahnoz Rustamova was absolutely amazing. She listened to what I had to say and actually wanted to help. I really appreciated my visit.
There was about a forty five minute delay but it didn't bother me. Her staff was very nice and apologized multiple times. Dr rustamova was great. She had excellent bedside manner and seemed to be more knowledgable than other drs I've seen in the past. I'd recommend her highly!
Quick, efficient and great bedside-manner from the staff. Dr. Rustamova always makes you feel comfortable. Highly recommend.
She was nice and very knowledgable. Took the time to explain the issue to me in detail. Somewhat dry, but a very no-nonsense and to the point kind of person.
The doctor herself is excellent, but I waited a long time—she didn't even arrive at the office until about 45 minutes after my appointment. Apparently there was a scheduling issue, but that didn't make me any less late for work.
It was a good visit. I was looking for a new doctor in the city and she was recommended to me by a friend. She was easy to talk and I have no complaints.
I was a patient of Dr. Rustamova for over four years and generally happy with her as a doctor but my latest (and last) visit was an awful experience. Their office started offering laser removal which overwhelmingly crowded the waiting room and even though it shouldn't affect the wait time for regular patients, I ended up seeing the doctor over an hour after my appointment, which has never happened. I was frustrated and willing to let it slide until I received my pap smear results VIA EMAIL instead of a phone call from my doctor, which is how I've always heard from her in the past. Clearly they are getting too busy to show an ounce of care and consideration towards a once longterm patient.
It's wonderful ! Very comfortable and I highly recommend her!
I was very impressed with Dr. Rustamova. In the past I have been to doctors that rush you in and do not seem to take the time to really check everything. Since usually the exam is only annual, you want someone that is going to make sure that you are good to go and she definitely did that. Will definitely be recommending her to others.
Dr. Rustamova was fine but I had some serious health issues that arose and her office never called me. Luckily the specialist office called me and didn't leave it up to my OBGYN office to call.
After all these years, I am still nervous about this annual exam. She is patient and understanding and I appreciate it enormously. She takes the time to talk about general health and nutrition, too. Finally, her office staff is friendly, extremely competent, and accommodating. I would recommend her practice without reservation.
When I first met Dr. Rustamova last year, she seemed very concerned and attentive on my first visit. We had all the time in the world to talk about my health concerns. My visit this year was not the same. My check up seemed rushed and she was dismissive that I had forgotten to ask her about my concerns at the time.
The wait (about 50 munutes) was discouraging at first, but Dr. Rustamova is very professional, knowledgeable, and informative.
I felt very rushed with her when she did the annual, i had a lot of questions but she did not seem interested and laughed at me when i voiced a concern. Her staff is very friendly, the office is very clean and i waited only 20-30 min.
I think she's great. Very knowledgeable and direct with responses and concerns. Feel she is thorough which is important to my which is why I recommended her to my sister who is now a patient!
Other than the wait time, I was thoroughly pleased with my experience not only with Dr. Rustamova, but with her staff as well.
The problem that I had was that the front desk person forgot to put my name on the list after I checked in so I was never called. I noticed that they were running somewhat behind since the person scheduled before me hadn't been called yet while I was waiting. After waiting an hour, I said something and they were very apologetic. The doctor and rest of staff were pleasant as always.
The Doc and her staff are super friendly. For my first visit to a gyn, it couldn't be better. We talked, she answered my questions and chose the least painful procedure with my comfort in mind. I would go to her again.
Very professional and knowledgeable.
She was great, sat me down and we spoke about what I went to see her for and then she came right into the room and was fast, and painless.
She was incredible and her staff were so kind, patient and helpful. Dr. Rustamova gave me more time than ANY doctor I have ever been to. She genuinely took her time and listened intently. She gave me tons of suggestions and didnt make me feel rushed. I felt very safe with her, and her obvious intelligence was very reassuring; I know that I am in good hands and on the way to a healthier lifestyle as long as I'm coming here. After only one day! Thank you so much! C, 25
I highly recommend Dr. Rustamova. She is warm, knowledgeable, and pays attention to details. She also runs a tight ship. Though the office had a lot of patients I was in an out in 40 minutes, which I really appreciated since I needed to get back to work asap.
Dr. Rustamova has an excellent bedside manner. She took the time to explain the procedure I was having and why it was necessary. She made a uncomfortable scary situation much more comfortable.
TERRIBLE bedside manner. Very insulting, rude, and harsh during her diagnosis.
Dr. Rustamova is efficient and professional. I have been seeing her for 3 years and highly recommend her.
She was professional and down to business. Once she arrived, I was in and out of the office in minutes.
Wonderful experience overall. Unexpectedly easy.
I've been a patient of Dr. Rustamova for almost 3 years and I highly recommend her. I recently switched birth control methods (hormonal BC to non-hormonal IUD). During the process, Dr. R listened to my concerns and made sure I understood all the pros/cons of the procedure and switch. There's usually a wait before my appointment, but the staff are very nice and there are plenty of magazines around to read. Dr. R's not warm and fuzzy, but she's incredibly quick and thorough and will make herself available for any concerns or issues you have.
Fantastic, Insightful, Knowledgeable and took her time.
Dr Rustamova is excellent and very professional.
I thought my visit here was excellent. The physician and her staff are very polite and helpful. Dr Rustamova is very knowledgeable and takes time to explain everything to you.
She is wonderful doctor and a wonderful person! Makes everyone comfortable and very detail oriented.
My appointment was great. The Doctor answered my questions and concerns fully and explained everything that I was unsure about. I would highly recommend her.
This was my first visit. I highly recommend her. She took her time to answer all my questions. She was in no rush. Very thorough with her answers. Attitude wise, she was very professional, patient, kind, funny and friendly. I will stick with her for life!!!
The doctor is an excellent and always very professional. I always know I am getting the right care.
I am a reluctant patient at best, and Dr. Rustamova is patient and understanding. My anxiety level decreased dramatically during my first visit. She is warm and welcoming. She and the whole staff, from the front desk on, answered any question I had. The woman who handled my vaginal ultrasound, has some serious skills. I feel confident in their hands.
So nice and helpful. She let me come in on late notice when I had a painful UTI and asked me questions, tested me, gave me meds and I was out. Staff is nice too.
It was a great first time visit. I was able to complete my paperwork before my appointment which saved time at the office. The staff is super friendly and they don't over book appointments, my wait time was less than 10 minutes. Dr. Rustamova was very friendly, helpful & knowledgeable. I would recommend to anyone in the Central Park south area.
I'm a new patient of Dr. Rustamova. She made me feel very comfortable, took time to answer my questions and listened to my concerns. It was super convenient that she has ultrasound equipment right in her practice, so there was no need for a second appointment. Her staff was very friendly and professional. I recommend her!
I had to wait an extremely long time for my appointment even though I was on time entering the doctor's office. Additionally, the the nurses were very unsure of what they were doing and did not properly sanitize herself before attending to me.
While I did wait a good 30-40 minutes to see her, it was well worth it! Very pleasant and informative. She genuinely cares about her patients!
I love this doctor. This usually doesn't happen but they were training someone new at the front desk so I had to wait an hour because they forgot about me.
Possibly one of the most all-around positive experiences I've had at a doctor's office. Not only was my visit on time but they even saw me a bit earlier than my appointment! Dr. Rustamova patiently took the time to answer all my questions and all of the staff were knowledgeable, cheerful and helpful.
She was very professional and knowledgeable
She's probably my favorite dr in the city -- I've been going here for almost 3 years and she just gets it. Very personable and approachable and you can really ask her anything.
I almost don't want to leave a great review because she is a hidden gem in the land of trying to find a GYN. I am a 40 something women and it has taken over 20 years to find the right doctor. The fact that an internal sonogram is part of your annual (right in the office) is unheard of.
Fantastic. Warm bedside manner and thorough exam. My one complaint is that the nurse who took care of me spoke very poor english and seemed confused, but it was first thing in the morning and perhaps she was new.
The staff is great, friendly and efficient. Dr. Rustamova is very smart, intelligent and patient. I felt comfortable expressing my concerns to her. I highly recommend this practice.
Dr. Rustamova was running late, but her office called me ahead of time to warn me, which I really appreciated.
She is the most professional, yet still personable, phyiscian ive seen. Made very sensitive subjects easy to discuss. Highly recommend!
I went for a routine pap and I was in and out of the exam room in under 5 minutes. I've seen her before (the first consult was very thorough) so she didn't need to spend a lot of time with me this time. The process is awkward enough as it is!
It was so refreshing to have a doctor look me in the eye and honestly listen to my wants and needs as a woman. She was incredibly straight-forward, professional, and efficient. Not only did she give me the facts, she made me laugh as well. The entire staff was kind and friendly. I finally feel like I found a doctor I will look forward to seeing.
Dr. Rustamova is awesome. Smart, funny, open, and honest. During my first visit she took the time to answer all of my questions and concerns. I felt totally at ease and didn't feel rushed. The staff is very friendly and professional and wait time was minimal. I would definitely recommend to a friend.
I was very disappointed in how little time the doctor spent on this visit. She seemed bothered by questions and not very willing to spend time on clarifying anything. I was referred by a friend who swears otherwise about this doctor, but unfortunately I had a very different experience.
Dr. Rustamova is thorough, professional, and a lovely woman. I highly recommend her.
Doctor Rustamova was amazing. She made me feel comfortable right away and answered all questions and concerns I had. I would highly recommend her as she was amazing. It is great to final find a great doctor
She shares her office with laser hair removal, which gives the lobby kind of an odd feel. I waited 30 minutes to see the doctor, who sat down with me before the exam. They wanted to do blood tests and made me go out of the office to call my insurance to see if the tests were covered - couldn't the medical assistants have helped with that? The doctor was wearing a tight lacy dress and heels, which was interesting. But more importantly, she did the exam quickly and efficiently, and her medical assistant was very kind and patient. I'll go back again because it's close to my office, but I don't know if I would recommend her to my friends or coworkers.
She made me feel very comfortable, and was genuinely interested in my health. The only downside was the wait time.
I would definitely recommend Dr. Rustamova. At my last appointment I had a mini emotional breakdown and she took the time to really find out what was going on. I appreciated that, but also that she's efficient and knows what she's doing.
She was extremely nice and pleasant. She made me feel very comfortable when asking those not-so-comfortable questions. Her nurses are also very nice and definitely know what they are doing.
Dr. Rustamova is great. Very knowledgeable, caring and through. Would highly recommend her.
Dr. Rustamova is fabulous. She explains everything in detail and gives you plenty of personal time. Love her bedside manner. You definately feel you are getting the best quality service.
Really awesome. She figured something out concerning my health, that no other specialty doctor did. GO!!!
I really like Dr. Rustamova! This was my fourth visit with her over the last five years, and I love that she takes the time to listen to any issues or concerns I may have. I never felt rushed and I was able to get all of my questions answered.
Dr. Rastamova was quick and professional, a no nonsense doctor, which personally I like. Would go back.
I was a little put off by the 30+ minute wait. However, she was worth it. She has an excellent bedside manner, very professional manner and spoke about my medical situation like we were a team working to correct my issue together. I like her approach and will make her my new regular gyn.
She was very easy to talk to and straight forward about sensitive subjects. My one complaint was in the follow up. I received an email with my test results and prescription instructions. I would have preferred a phone call.
She's very quick and to the point - but if you are a first-timer, I wouldn't suggest.
Visit went well, but following up with the front desk staff is a nightmare.
She's very nice and knowledgeable.
Very quick, in and out which I really liked. She was nice, but I kind of felt like I was just being scolded the whole appointment when she wasn't really listening to what I had to say. I felt like she had already diagnosed me without even listening to me.
She's easy to chat with and is also very quick and direct.
amazing staff, very comfortable atmosphere, the robes could be sized down a bit as they are ginormous but the entire experience is created to be extremely comfortable for an uncomfortable but necessary process. kudos to the staff for being on top of everything. kudos to the dr for realizing what female patients need.
I loved my experience.. it went by very quick and was still very informative..
I think the Dr. Rustamova was very nice. She is not the type to force you into any procedure, or jumps into doing invasive procedures right away - so that was very relieving to me as I've had gynos that were like that. The problem lies actually on the rest of the staff because the doctor doesn't call you for your results. Instead, I received an email! And when I tried to call to speak to the doctor regarding my emailed test results, it was impossible to get ahold of her. Email in general is very unprofessional in my opinion - when it comes to delivering test results.
I was a new patient at this vist & wish the office staff would have looked over my paperwork before they started taking my vitals, etc. Otherwise I was more than pleased with Dr. Rustamova and her services!
she is so personable and she even recommended some hollistic healing. i never believe in that but i think im gonna go ahead. the wait time was horrible. there seemed to be so many girls working there yet they couldnt take charge of the patients
Very pleased with the comprehensive exam and knowledge and input that Dr. Rustamova provided.
abrupt, didnt take time to explain anything. Pushed medication.
It seemed like a busy clinic but she took time to go over all the questions that I answered prior to the visit. She was confident and efficient.
She is a wonderful doctor, highly recommend her.
Very professional and smart. I feel she knows what she's doing, she is capable and I feel safe with her.
Terrible will never return to her again!
I would definitely go back! Recommend!
Love this doctor. Reassuring, knowledgeable, connects with her patients on a human level. Rare in this day and age. Wonderful doctor and kind person.
I love Dr. Rustamova. Her bedside manners are great. I would never go ahywhere else.
She isn't very sweet, which people can confuse for brusque or tactless. This is understandable, as she is from the former Soviet Union, and most people I have met who have come from that part of the world have that similar trait. She is extremely competent, helpful, and easy to be around.
Dr. Rustamova and the nurse who assisted were very thorough and professional.
Dr. Rustamove exceeded my expectations by far. She sat with me in her office for over 15 minutes to discuss the issues that I am having and offered her knowledge/advice as far as what supplement I should be taking & what i can do to improve the issue. I was never expecting a busy doctor to take time out to sit with me one on one like that. She is incredibly kind and it's worth mentioning that her front office staff was also extremely helpful and kind.
Dr. Rustamova is very efficient and has a friendly bedside manner. Her staff is very attentive and organized.
Everything is good except for the wait time. I had the first appointment of the day, it was still more than 30 wait. I had no idea why they were late, but it sure wasn't because they were seeing other patients. In fact some of the staff walked in at 9:20 and my appt was 9am.
I recommend Dr. Rustamova for anything looking for an OB-GYN. She very knowledgeable and caring and has gone above the call of duty to make me feel comfortable on multiple occasions.
Dr. Rustamova is a great doctor and really knows her stuff. I recommend her to all my friends.
Dr. Rustamova and her staff in the back were incredible, helpful, and answered all of my questions, listened to my concerns, and it was the least stressful visit of this manner that I have ever had.
Dr Rustomova is an excellent Doc! She is smart, nice, patient, and explains everything very clearly. The wait time can sometimes be a while, but it’s definitely worth it. The office staff is also really nice and helpful.
She was knowledgeable and to the point.
Love her !
This doctor is great, as are her office staff and technicians. Great bedside manner. The only problem was the long wait--for my 945am appointment (the earliest they offer) I got into a room at 1040am.
I rarely leave reviews but I had been going to Dr. Rustamova for several years and was generally happy. However, I have recently been very disappointed with the quality of service. She has become increasingly rushed, and the office's laser hair removal services have seemed to become the primary area of focus for them instead of actual medical care. After my last visit, I had a follow up question and never received a response after I had called. I also recently tried to make an appointment and it was a nightmare (getting re-scheduled and their office got my appointment times mixed up several times). The wait time is also pretty long, but honestly, that is probably the least of the issues.
I filled out the paperwork online and arrived a bit early and it went super quickly. Dr. Rustamova is always great and her staff is super friendly.
Dr Rustamova has a great bedside manner. She is very thorough.
Dr. Rustamova was extremely helpful. She has a wide sense of knowledge about health in general. She takes time to walk you through the process plus she answers any questions you ask her even if it has nothing to do with her field of study. I have acne so I went there to be prescribed birth control pills for my acne treatment, she recommended a pap which i did the same day, and provided me with helpful tips about skin care. She suggested I stopped using the acne pills I was prescribed by my dermatologist. My acne has progressed extremely. I really recommend her.
She was very thorough and her staff was wonderful.
Very knowledgeable, understanding, and spends a good amount of time with the client.
She is a very competent, personable doctor. She is always smiling and happy about the care she extends to her patients.
The lady who did my laser shots did it so hastedly and without enough attention that she actually missed the main part of my chin with thick hairs which was the main reason I got this deal. hopefully the second session is better :///
Very professional, pleasant, and knowledgable. Takes time and works with you to get to the root of the problem.
Without question, the best laser hair treatment I have ever received. The best place in NYC! They have a state-of-the-art, pain free cooling/wind laser that is absolutely incredible! You leave feeling refreshed and pain free! I will return for multiple sessions! I highly recommend!
Very kind, professional and direct. I highly recommend.
I thought Dr. Shahnoz Rustamova was very professional and since I was new, I appreciated that she sat down with me and listened to my needs before jumping to conclusions about what the visit was for. I never felt rushed and she was very patient.
I have been seeing Dr. Rustamova for almost two years now and I have never been happier. She is extremly thorough and will explain everything -- Folks don't be afraid to ask your doctor(s) questions. It is your right to ask -- and Dr. Rustamova answers all of them including things you think may not necesessarily be GYN related.
Dr. Rustamova is great! Her office is up to date on all things medical and really knows how to get an annua exam done quickly and comfortably.
This was my second visit and I would definitely keep her as my regular doctor going forward.
Very professional staff and facilities.
Dr. Rustamova gave me unsolicited advice about the psychiatric medication I'm on. I'm Bipolar and its taken years (and one hospitalization) to find a medication regimen that evens me out and helps me to live my life. Dr. Rustamova Is not a psychiatrist, I did not ask her opinion, and yet she told me I should go off my meds and meditate instead! Totally unprofessional.
There's something so unavoidably awkward about a trip to the ladydoctor, but Dr. Rustamova makes it as comfortable as possible each time. Thank you.
Very nice and knolegeble doctor.
very caring and professional
The exam was thorough. Her attire could have been more professional.
Great staff and excellent doctor! Very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. I felt comfortable asking questions and the doctor provided lots of detail. Would highly recommend.
The whole office was very friendly and professional. Dr. Rustamova took the time to discuss details with me and made me very comfortable.
Efficient front office staff. Very personable doctor.
For a routine check up Dr. Shahnoz Rustamova is professional, quick and efficient, just as you would like your Gyn-exam. However, if you have a question on your mind, she will take the time to explain it to you.
It was a very comfortable experience with Dr. Rustamova taking time to explain everything and address any questions.
waited a little while for about 15 mins after i had changed. Dr. is highly efficient and i like the fact she prescribe you something and she tells you the reason for it. Done the annual exam quickly and I my prescription was sent direct to my pharmacist. Got love the efficiency.
I thought Dr. Rustamova was incredibly competent and had a nice bedside manner. I will be returning as a patient.
Very personable and informative. I was in and out really quickly, and she made me feel very comfortable (as comortable as one can be) the whole time.
Very nice and made me comfortable throughout the whole visit. She wasn't super personable, but friendly enough. I'm definately staying here.
She is fantastic. I would recommend her to any young woman. She is non-judgmental, efficient, gentle, and thorough. I always feel like my questions are answered.
I love Dr Rustamova. I had to wait a but longer than usual today- but it's worth it. I've been seeing her for the past 4 years or so and would recommend her to all of my female friends.
She was very well-informed about estrogen levels, etc. pre-menopause, which was a big question I had, and extremely patient with my doctor phobia! She has been my doctor for several years and I recommend her (and her staff) without reservation.
Exactly what I had hoped
I would definitely recommend this doctor.
Very nice doctor. My first visit was very nice and quick.
This was my first visit so I dont want to be to hasty and give 5 stars but I felt that she was extremely thorough and helpful. I would recommend her and will go back
The doctor is great but the wait is too long. My wait was approximately 1 hour for a 10 minutes procedure. There are always many people waiting at the lobby.
Very informative and easy to talk to and be open with.
She is great but wait times are sometimes long
I absolutely love Dr. Rustamova! By far the best OB/GYN I have ever visited! She was informative and very thorough. Her staff is also courteous, professional and very friendly. Although I waited about 30-45 minutes to be seen by the doctor, it was truly worth the wait. Prior to the annual exam, we had a consultation in her office. She listened to all of my concerns and addressed them thoroughly. She is also LGBT friendly which is always a concern for me when visiting a new OB/GYN. After visiting Dr. Rustamova's practice, I left with a better understanding of my body. I highly, highly recommend Dr. Rustamova!
I have complicated heath issues at the moment and Dr. Rustamova is the first doctor that has cared for my entire body. I am extremely thankful.
Dr Rustamova had the perfect balance of time spent and explaining the details and expectations.
great experience all around.
She is one of the best doctors I have ever been. She went thorugh lots of information without even asking. Answered all the questions i have.
I moved cities and make the journey over specifically to see dr.shanoz. She's straightforward, thorough and very knowledgeable
Dr. Rustamova was thorough, patient, professional, and straight-forward. She took the time to learn about my medical history and concerns, asked me the relevant questions, explained my options and the results of different preventive and treatment measures. The exam itself was quick and she made me feel comfortable.
She is smart and quick, a wham-bam-thanks-for-playing type; so if you're looking for "let's have a nice chat about your body and all your hopes and dreams," Dr. Rustamova won't be a good fit.
Informational, comfortable and pleasent.
I really like her a lot. I feel very comfortable with her and respect her as a doctor.
I love absolutly loved her !
This was the best experience I have ever had with an OBGYN. She really took her time to speak with me and listen to my concerns. She was thorough and offered great suggestions. I would highly recommend her!
Dr. Rustamova is very caring and takes the time to really explain everything to you. Bottom line: I based which Obamacare insurance I picked based on which plan networks SHE was in when I had to switch insurances. Seriously, she's great. The only thing I'd ever complain about is the 20 minute wait times, but hey, welcome to NYC.
It was great! I'm normally very uncomfortable during my yearly exam but she spent time talking with me and made me feel very comfortable. I would absolutely recommend her.
She made me feel very comfortable and took her time answering my questions. I never felt rushed and her considerate and thoughtful answers made me trust her.
have been seeing her for 5 years now - would not go to anyone else. She's always to the point, without any unnecessary stuff that you might encounter with other doctors. Highly recommended!
she was great, i'm switching doctors!
I went to Dr. Rustamova as new patient. I loved the fact that she was interested in getting to know me and brought me into her office for a personal one on one to really understand me and my concerns. I found Dr. Rustamova to be extremely helpful in answering my questions and very informative.
She is a very pleasant and knowledgeable doctor, who listens and addresses all your concerns. Her personnel is great as well. Everyone is very nice and friendly. I would highly recommend this doctor
I liked how she brought me into her office and discussed my medical history and for the reason I made the appointment in the first place. She was knowledgable about natural healing methods, but she was definitely more insistent on pills. At the bedside, I would have liked her to have walked me through what she was doing especially when she was going to put something in me- I was definitely uncomfortable and surprised. I would still possibly go back because she was not horrible just satisfactory.
She tends to get behind schedule, but that's because she actually spends time with her patients! Highly recommended.
Pleasant and I appreciated that she had time to discuss some issues.
Dr. Rustamova didn't rush me. She answered all my questions (some of them twice) and she was very thorough. I recommend her.
Overall pleased w/ experience. She was sweet/personable, yet to the point. Based on 1st impression, I would reccommend to friends.
I am so happy that I found Dr. Rustamova. She is really great! She is very personable, sweet and knowledgeable. She takes her time and I never feel rushed like in some other doctor’s offices. I would highly recommend her.
She is very thorough!
Dr. Rustamova was great! She took her time to review all of my medical history and background. She made me feel at ease and performed a thorough/comprehensive exam. It is very obvious that she cares about her patients, I highly recommend Dr. Rustamova!
The staff in this office are really fantastic, which is important since that's who you see for 90% of your visit anyway. Dr. Rustamova was friendly, quick, and made what can otherwise be an awkward visit as painless as possible. I will definitely be going back.
EVERY girl I know in NYC is looking for a good gyno and let me tell you this lady is AMAZING! I get really anxious, faint...etc and she has been the only doctor in NYC to make me feel comfortable where I was able to have a PAP and shot and leave without passing out! She is incredibly nice and understanding and I cannot rave about her enough!
Her beside manner and the way about her made me nervous. She was judgmental. She let a staff member call me to tell me I had an illness instead of breaking the news to me myself.
Good professional and thorough overall satisfied experience
Dr. Rustamova is smart, concise and considerate to her patients and the her staff. She sat down with me in her office to discuss my health and medical needs after my check up. She was detailed and not rushed but also very efficient. She was professional and extremely knowledgable. I would highly recommend her.
Great experience. Professional and caring attitude. Capable staff.
Fast and easy. To the point.
Dr. Rustamova was professional and thorough. The staff was helpful and polite and the office was very comfortable.
Dr. Rustamova is kind, knowledgable, professional, and quick. I always recommend her to friends who are looking for a gyn in the city.
Dr. Rustamova is fantastic. I really appreciated that my appointment started with a conversation in her office rather than me sitting in a hospital robe discussing my problems in an exam room. She was attentive, detailed and addressed all of my concerns. She was very clear and the appointment was easy but very thorough. Her front desk and nursing staff was also very helpful and sweet. I am so happy I found a great gyn.
She is incredible.
The doctor was running over an hour late. While she is terrific, her front desk staff is not helpful or thoughtful for those with work schedules
My first time and my last time. Her bedside manner was rude and unsympathetic. Maybe it was because I was a first time patient.
Professional, thorough, strongly recommended.
This was my first time seeing Dr. Rustamova and it was a great experience. She is easy to talk to and gave me great advice. I will definitely keep coming back to her for continued care.
I liked the young ladies at the reception desk very much. Good sign, since they're your first introduction to a new Dr. I liked Dr. Rustamova very much. She was kind and explained what the exam would be like and that I needed a sonogram. Arlene who did that exam was wonderful, as well. For me feeling comfortable is so important. All the ladies in the office made my visit as good as it gets in a Gyno office!!!
I find it unacceptable that I was made to wait 45 minutes before seeing the doctor with absolutely no apology. I also have a job and there is no way I could treat my clients this way.
Dr. Rustamova is the best. Highly professional but with an exceptional human touch. The wait time was on the long side due to an emergency she needed to tend to, which disrupted appointment times a bit, but she still made time for everyone (rather than rescheduling for another day) so I was fine with the wait. All around, a 5-star doc.
Extremely knowledgeable, respectful, and warm. Wait time was slightly longer than I expected, as the office/doctor seems very busy. She was very understanding and sensitive to personal issues. Staff/PAs up front were also respectful, professional, and prompt. I think I've FINALLY found an OB/GYN I'll still with for years to come.
Liked her. Up on the latest technology for pre-cancer testing, etc.
She's super professional, helpful, and knowledgeable. She really listens to you and gives great advice.
One of the best doctors I have seen in a while. All the other reviews were spot on. I very much appreciate the time she took to discuss before the examination and after, nothing felt rushed and she is very friendly. Highly recommended
This doctor is the best gynecologist I have seen in 13 years in NY: She has a warm and professional bedside manner and spends adequate time listening to the patient's concerns and past medical history. I recommended her to a friend and my friend came back with the same impression.
She's knowledgeable and helpful
Dr. Shahnoz Rustamova was very nice, knowledgeable, and helpful.
Dr. Rustamova is no nonsense but easy to talk to.
Doctor. I hope this reaches you. I come once a year for a *wellness* visit. You call it an *annual*. You get paid from Oxford. Bit I got charged a co-pay. I just got the bill. I called Oxford. He said what happened was your office sent it in as a regular office visit. He says you have to submit a *corrected* claim, calling it a *preventative medicine* visit. That comes without a co-pay . I talked to the woman who answers the phone but I don't know if she will follow through. She sounded busy.
Finding a great gynecologist is hard, but when you find one, it's like gold. I am so happy I found Dr. Shahnoz, she is exactly what I need in a gynecologist- the girlfriend you can tell anything and who'll give it to you straight, plus the smart, thorough doctor you need. I will definitely be returning.
Dr. Rustamova was quick and efficient but made me feel uncomfortable because she seemed a little judgmental. I didn't leave feeling like I had all of my questions answered.
I can't say enough good things about Dr. Rustamova, she is kind, listens, thorough and really cares about her patients. Highly recommend her.
FABULOUS AND CARING!!!
Receptive, good listener; clearly has had experience dealing with my problems/symptoms (not true of other doctors). Gave range of options for treatment (with pros/cons) instead of dictating one way. In other words, collaborative, treated me as an intelligent adult. Highly recommended.
The doctor was extremely professional yet very very approachable. In addition to that, she was also very knowledgeable on a medical level and is not overly dramatic about things. As someone who hates going to doctors, I stressed for a week before this appointment, but when I got there, everyone in the office made me feel comfortable. The sense of teamwork and everyone knowing their part in the office made a big difference. The entire staff, not just the doctor - is extremely competent. Also having an all female staff and extremely knowledgeable staff definitely made this visit much more comfortable. The ease of booking my own appointment online via ZocDoc and without having to deal with a third party made it much easier to commit to the appointment. Kudos to her for using technology the way it should be used.
Quick and to the point. No waiting excessively long in the waiting room or the appointment room.
Her staff at the front desk are really slow, both mentally and physically. I was waiting to have a procedure done and because of the long wait time (45 minutes), my anxiety mounted to the point where I was crying in the patient's seat when she finally brought me inside. Overall, not an enjoyable visit. Dr. Rustamova is not very reassuring and does not have a satisfactory bedside manner, either.
She was great. I didn't feel rushed at all, and all of my questions were answered.
I have seen Dr. Rustamova for years.
Easy to talk to.
I like her bedside manner, she makes sure she answers all your questions and doesn't seem in a rush to get to the next patient like other doctors. Her assistant, however, needs some work in the bedside manner department.
It took a little while to be seen but the exam was quick and well done. The only thing that bothered me was that during the vaginal exam (a very vulnerable time) Dr Rustamova asked in a very abrupt manner what I was doing to loose weight, and then invited me to her weight loss open house (for a medically supervised weight loss program). As a health care professional myself, I know that a healthy weight is important, but I felt that her approach was very aggressive and not at all well timed. Other than that, it was an well done exam and her office seemed to be well run.
Dr. Rustamova and her staff were very nice and welcoming. It was my first appointment there and I was a little early, but I filled out some paperwork and they took me in ahead of schedule. After a nurse took my weight and blood pressure, I met Dr. Rustamova and we spoke briefly about my medical history and any questions I had then had my routine exam which was quick, but not rushed. I would definitely recommend Dr. Rustamova to others. I've had a lot of not so great experiences with obgyns so I was really pleasantly surprised with me experience here.
Dr. Rustamova was very direct and efficient but also personable. The exam was very thorough and included a rectal exam and sonogram (which none of my previous doctors have done). My only complaint was that there seemed to be some confusion among the staff members/receptionists in the reception area. There were about 5 people behind the desk discussing lunch plans and the like which made the reception area a little chaotic.
Very nice and professional. Would definitely recommend Dr. Rustamova to my friends and family.
Dr Rustamova is excellent! She has great bedside manner and is very knowledgable. She has been my Gynocologist for several years.
Dr Rustamova & Staff were very friendly and informative.
I'd previously gone to countless OBGYNs for an issue I was having. None were helpful. One of them gave me a calender to mark off the days I was having the issue and bring it back in six months. SIX MONTHS, can you imagine??! I came to Dr. Rustamova and she explained the issue very plainly in less than 10 minutes and assured me I was completely healthy.
Great first appointment. I did not feel rushed and she made me feel very comfortable and informed when I left.
Dr. Rustamova is great. She is quick and to the point while being sympathetic to your questions - making you feel as though your time spent with her is maximized. Her staff is friendly and efficient. I highly recommend her!
It may have just been a bad match. I found her a little cold and condescending.
She was very thorough in both the annual exam and in informing me about insurance coverage vs the tests I wanted to have done. She even suggested I call my insurer to make sure things are covered so I don't accrue unknown charges. She also has a very friendly disposition. You can tell she puts thought and time into each patient. I will definitely be recommending her to my friends and sisters.
A serious neglect of details here. The nurse who took my vitals recorded the wrong weight--by 72 pounds! The sonographer who was checking a cyst from my previous annual noted that my birthdate was recorded incorrectly (and unchangeable), such that I was listed as 1 year old on that day. During the annual visit, the doctor stood in the corner of the exam room with her arms folded, while asking me routine annual questions. She scolded me for not using birth control...though I have been trying to get pregnant for 4 years, as she and I have previously discussed at length. I started to wonder if they'd lost my chart, but it was right there in the room. Also, no follow-up on test results. I had to call later in the month to see if everything was normal. Time to find a new gynecologist...
Very friendly & knowledgeable. Dr. Shahnoz is amazingly wonderful.
She was excellent.
Greatest doctor ever...she is very thorough and insightful. I highly highly recommend her.
She is super nice and professional....Definitely makes the visit to the gyno tolerable....I mean does anyone really "enjoy" going?? Very knowledgeable and not pushy, plus the nurses and ancillary staff were also very kind. I'll be back in a year.
She was very informative. Very pleasant and didn't make me nervous at all. I would recommend her to my family and friends. As well as, continue going to her.
I love Doctober Rustamova's energy - I never feel rushed with her, she looks me in the eye, listens to my concerns, and responds patiently to all my questions. Definitely recommend her!
I think Dr. Rustamova is great at what she does. She found uterine polyps during my annual check-up when no other doctor could figure out what was wrong with me hormonally. Once she did the surgery, I felt so much better. I highly recommend her.
My visit went very well. The doctor was very nice and I felt comfortable
Dr. Rustamova was very friendly and knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. She also wanted to make sure my insurance covered blood work, prescriptions, etc. so I did not have to pay any unnecessary bills. I will definitely see her again and recommend her to my friends.
She was extremely helpful and gave me great advice about my overall health!
I felt very comfortable with her. I never felt rushed and i appreciated her thorough approach.
very thorough and knowledgeable. highly recommended!
Dr Rustamova and her staff were all very friendly and professional. She informed me of options without pushing me to make any decisions. Overall a very positive experience.
She was cold and not very personable. The appointment felt quick and unthorough. I had horrible pains and cramps afterwards which I have never experienced after a pap. I will not be going to this doctor again.
She's great and so is her nurse/ medical assistant. Sometimes the admin is very spacey and slow
Amazing. Professional. Caring.
Doctor was extremely curt and did not make me feel comfortable. She did the exam so quickly and left the room before I could ask her any questions. Any concerns that I did express, she waived them off as if they were nothing, but without providing reassurance. I would never see Dr. Rustamova again, nor refer my friends to her. Her husband/boyfriend was around the office, speaking Russian with the doctor, not in the examing room, but his presence in general added to the bizarre, uncomfortable nature of the entire experience. I'm certainly not opposed to having a male gyno, but it was unclear as to who he was or what he was doing there.
Dr. Rustamova is thorough and efficient without being hasty. She and her staff are professional and friendly.
MD competent and professional demeanor. Office staff another story. I was contacted to chane appointment 15 minutes later which agreed. However, I waited 45 minutes. Staff discussed medical details on phone and among selves in hearing of all in waiting area. Made me feel very uncomfortable.
I would highly recommend Dr.Shahnoz to all my friends and family member.
She's great! I've recommended to my friends, and now they see her.
I trust her, which is the most important thing.
This is my second visit with Dr. Rustamova. The wait time was longer than last time and longer than I expected, but the staff was very nice and the exam itself was quick and easy. Dr. Rustamova is quick but will listen and answer any questions you have. I will definitely come back again.
Dr. Rustamova was amazing. She was extremely informative, patient and friendly.
Knowledgeable, fast, and reassuring.
I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Rustamova and her office. The staff was professional and friendly. I was taken ON TIME--which I have never experienced in a doctor's office. This was my first time there, and before my exam she met me in her office to discuss my history and any concerns. She took her time and went over everything I wanted to discuss. I highly recommend Dr. Rustamova.
Very friendly and straightforward and fast.
Dr. Rustamova was refreshingly personable, knowledgable, caring and thorough.
Very pleasant and knowledgeable. Easy to discuss things with her.
Very attentive and caring doctor, highly recommended
She made me feel very comfortable.
Great spot and feel taken care of and listened to without being judgmental.
She is very thorough and amazing bedside manner. I hate her staff. They're very arrogant and rude. Because of them I sadly might not come back and see her.
Thorough, professional, efficient, comfortable experience. Warm office environment. Exactly what one hopes to find in an OB/GYN! Highly recommended.
Very professional and direct. Doesn't waste time. First doctor that's taken the time to sit down with me in her office, gone over history, etc. Exam was super quick though, didn't feel thorough (was just a routine pelvic, so maybe unnecessary, but still) -- total exam time was 120 seconds tops.
Dr. Rustamova was extremely attentive and took personal interest in my well being. You are put at ease,and feel like you are her only patient. Extremely thorough, up-to-date with new techniques. I have already recommended her to a friend.
I picked Dr. Rustamova based on the reviews because I was looking for a doctor who would have a very open approach to the practice and did not involve her personal views/religion. She could be that doctor but I did not find out because I was in and out and we developed no doctor/patient trust as there was minimal exchange. I probably spent about 3min in her office discussing the history and another 5min for the checkup. Granted, I wasn't looking for a confessional but would have been nice for her to gather medical history and be more informative about options and questions.
Dr. Rustamova was wonderfully informative, friendly and honest about my treatment options. The office was warm as was the staff.
I've been her patient for years and have never regretted it.
I visited Dr. Rustamova for the first time today she was very caring, informative, and an all around great doctor.
I absolutely loved Dr.Rustamova. The appointment was so easy and she was very thorough with me. It was my first gyno appt and she made it very easy. He receptionists are exceptionally friendly and helpful. The Nurse's Aide was great. I would highly recommend Dr. Rustamova!
Very quick, thorough and personable. Her office is lovely, as are the people working for her.
Very knowledgeable and definitely made me feel comfortable. I love that she brought me into her office and spoke to me one on one about my history before even going into the exam room. She's a little harsh/blunt, but in a caring way.
I was recommended by a friend to Dr. Rustamova and I can't speak more highly of her. Appointments with her are quick and painless. I really appreciate her efficiency since I used to dread going to my yearly OB-GYN appointments-- not anymore! She's helpful and knowledgeable about various treatments and tests. Her staff is also extremely helpful and friendly.
It was warm and business-like at the same time. Just the way I like it.
I was seen right away which was great! She was very professional and at the same time very carring. I would highly recommend the dr.rustamova.
Quick and thorough. Would definitely recommend!
The visit was really nice, the staff was welcoming, took their time, gave me privacy but I felt like my health was definitely their priority.
She was extremely thorough with all tests and examinations. It makes me think my last doctor didn't know what he was doing. She also sat down with me in her office to discuss my history and anything else I wanted before the exam. She can be a little blunt about things, but it was obvious she was just trying to be as informative as possible.
She took the time to talk before the exam. She fully reviewed medical history, allowed me to ask questions, and was quick with the exam. Great experience
Dr. Rustamova is very attentive and easy to talk to. She also helps patients find the most affordable ways to fill their prescriptions. I go to her every year for my annual check up and will continue to.
Answered all my questions, spent time with me and was overall very helpful. The office was clean and the receptionists helped me with insurance information - that was a rare (but welcome) experience! Definitely would recommend her!
An excellent doctor! Very happy with the way she answered all my questions and the time she spent with me. The office is clean and staff is very friendly. I was looking for the right doctor for a long time and I think I finally found her.
She was very professional yet made me feel completely comfortable. The best doctor I've seen in a long time...too bad she's not doing deliveries anymore :(
Dr R is thoughtful and professional. She does not overbook. I rarely have to wait longer than a few minutes.
She was okay. I wasn't a huge fan of how impersonal and hurried she made the appointment seem. Maybe she wasn't having a good day? Not sure... but wasn't thrilled with her.
Her office staff was very accomidating & squeezed me in last minute. Dr. Rustamova was so kind & really took her time explaining things to me. I will definitely see her again!
Dr. Rustamova is the best!
Very nice doctor, but I was scheduled one of the first in the morning at 9.45am and the practice opens at 9am , and still I had to wait over an hour
I think Dr. Rustamova is a highly qualified professional. She was very helpful and managed to establish friendly relationships with me. I will reccomend Ms. Rustamova to all my Russian-speaking friends, as well as I'm planning to see her again and schedule my next visit in the future. I'm very pleased with the level of service I was treated and hospitaly of medical staff working at this clinic.
Wonderful Doctor! She sat me down in her office and answered all my questions, very kind and professional. The staff working were great as well, I highly recommend Dr. Rustamova and will be coming back soon. Thank you again!
As a first time patient, it would have been nice to have been told to come in really early to fill out the many forms. When the doc finally saw me, she seemed distracted and did not even ask questions pertaining to some of the highly personal information i had to provide in the forms. I waited almost half an hour in my gown before I was even seen. My first gynocologist was a male and he had a better bedside manner than she did. She was quick and very medical without even thinking of what I could be going through as a female patient. She did not speak to me or seem to care if I was in pain. After I left I was in pain and felt disgusting. She did not even say good bye. After this experience I think it's worth driving 2 hours from my home to see my old gynocologist. If you want to have a quick annual shes perfect but if you want to leave feeling like this is a place you can come again, dont bother.
It was my first visit and she was very thorough. Professional and personable. Highly recommend.
She was professional and answered all my questions knowledgeably. What should've been an in and out annual pap took longer than an hour. She seemed like she was overbooked that day. I spent more time waiting in the room before and after the assistant left me than seeing the doc face to face.
She was very straight forward and took the appointment seriously, as she should have.
I like Dr.Rustamova. She is very professional and spend enough time to explain anything I asked. Waiting could be a little bit longer sometime but overall it is not too bad. There was really nice receptionist before but she seemed left and now new receptionist is not as friendly as the old one...
Very knowledgeable and professional. Despite my very first visit with her, Dr. Rustamova made me feel like she had been my doctor for many years!
Everything was great, she is very approachable. I was a little disconcerted however when she sharedthe results of tests i had on my voicemail... ouch.
Very professional and thorough
My visit was excellent. Everyone is kind and professional.
I found her to be very condescending, and the exam was rather rough.
Dr. Rustamova was very professional, helpful, and thorough. She listened to and addressed all of my concerns, and answered my questions thoughtfully and completely. Her office is clean and pleasant and in a beautiful building!
I feel very confident having Dr. Rustamova as my gynocologist, and would and have recommended her to others.
In the past year, I needed to make two appointments with Dr. Rustamova and she cancelled on me three times. I don't have a flexible schedule and it is time consuming to constantly have to call back to reschedule. For this reason I would not recommend Dr. Rustamova for anyone who has a Monday to Friday job.
I loved it!
Dr. Rustamova is great! She really listens to your requests and concerns and provides you with all the information you need. The people working in the office are great as well and extremely helpful!
Great doctor, easy to talk to, listens well, nice and helpful staff
Fine. Appt seemed a little rushed.
I always feel like this office pushes to sell services even if you refuse a couple of times. I'm not fond of the Dr. so I will probably be seeking a new OBGYN.
As usual, she was great!
One stop shopping here. Wonderful GYN chair - sitting one minute, GYN exam the next - even has lumbar support! Can have labs,sono and restalyne treatments done all at the one spot. Very efficient and no muss, no fuss. Could get rid of the incessant TV advertising in the waiting area. Happy to discuss menopausal treatments and member of NAMS.
She is quick without being impersonal, very professional!
Dr. Rustamova was very professional and I felt quite comfortable talking to her during my consultation. It was my first visit, and I haven't had a regular gynegologist for a few years -- I think I finally found one. Definitely recommend.
She always takes the time to see me, even when all I'm getting is a follow-up blood test, which her nurse administers.
She is prompt, thorough
Dr. Rustamova is very pleasant, eloquent and up to date with the latest technologies with regards to women's health.
Dr Rustamova is a great doctor. She is easy to talk to and very efficient with the exam.
I think she is an amazing doctor, very knowledgeable and aware of updates in medicine and procedures. I felt extremely comfortable with her before and during the exam.
As always, Dr. Rustamova is clear and conveys pertinent information in a way that doesn't alarm but does give and precautions necessary.
Very professional and courteous. Takes time to get to know the patient but is also extremely efficient.
Wonderful Experience, as if i'd finally properly gone to a Dr's office. Cutting edge with care of your history. Personable and possessional. Staff was awesome too! Gold Star!
Doctor addressed multiple concerns, and provided help beyond what she had to do. Astoundingly caring and kind. I have not had a medical experience this sincere in 10 years. Staff also wonderful. Glad to have found this practice.
It was great. She was very friendly, and took the time to answer my questions thoroughly. Her staff was also excellent.
I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Rustamova to my friends. She is an excellent physician, who is never "too busy" to take extra time to answer a patient's questions. She has an excellent "bedside matter" and is a very compassionate person.
she is professional!!
a true physician - available at all times even for emergencies on weekends/holidays.
She's right to the point, extremely knowledgeable and ahead of the trends in women's health.
Amazing doctor! She listened to me very patiently and she cared about me and tried to solve all my problems without rushing to see the next patient. the only thing that I didn't like - filling out 15 pages long medical history&disclaimer. Took me forever!
I came back to Dr. Rustamova today to receive some bad test results, which is never an easy visit. She was so informative, so reassuring, and took as much time as I needed to explain everything that was going on and make sure I understood it. Every procedure she does she explains everything she's doing step by step, before and throughout the process. She is very professional and treats her patients with such respect. I would highly recommend her to anyone
Great first experience.
Dr. Rustamova is professional and efficient - makes my annual less of a pain. I definitely recommend her.
The office ambience and informational brochures are inviting.
Pleasant and caring.
Very efficient with a kind demeanor. Up to date technology and knowledge of the latest medical advances.
Dr. Rustamova and her team are professional, thorough and extremely efficient. I am really happy to have found her and extremely comfortable to use her as my Gynae going forward.
Dr. Rustamova is a wonderful doctor who is very attentive and thorough. She has a great staff and each visit is always a pleasure.
A doctor who listened and was concerned about patient. Had all tests done very quickly. Very thorough and knowledgeable.
I've been seeing Dr. Rustamova for several years. Every appointment is rushed and every time I leave the office wondering why I keep coming back. Additionally, I always feel like she is questioning/judging my choices and pushing more toward a contraceptive solution that isn't quite right for what I was asking. I will not be coming back.
Very easy visit. Doctor was pleasant and quick with the exam but took time to answer any and all questions. Staff was very nice and very efficient. Definitely will be my regular gyn.
I have been going to see her for almost 2 years now and she's the best. Highly recommend!
Dr. Rustamova was great!
Never fun to visit the gynocologist but Dr. Rustamova makes the experience much easier by always being very professional while also being very warm in her demeanor. She takes time with you if you need it and can also get to business very efficiently without feeling rushed.
I waited less than 15 minutes and needed to fill out some forms so they were ready when I was. This doctor really listened to me and let me talk to her about some things for a good while before beginning the annual exam. I felt she was warm and understanding while still being professional. The actual procedure was super speedy (in a good way.) This practice also seems to be up on the latest tests, techniques, and options for women and that means a lot to me. The front desk staff and sonogram tech were especially nice and speedy as well. Although everyone was gearing up to leave for the day, I never felt rushed.
Doctor Rustamova is so wonderful! I'm grateful to be her patient.
I was so relaxed and very comfortable. This was the least stressed I have ever been about an exam. I always get very anxious about it because it is not the most pleasant thing to have to go through. But before I knew it the exam was over, I was really pleasantly surprised.
Dr. Rustamova is so caring,
As usual, Dr. Rustamova was quick, professional, and no-nonsense--just what I like in a gynecologist! She was running a bit behind today (unlike the last time I saw her, when I was brought back right away), but it's no hardship to sit in her very nice waiting room. Her staff is also very friendly and accommodating. I appreciated the basket of condoms in the bathroom, and was heartened to see that her office actually sells DivaCups--if you haven't tried one, they are fantastic!
Excellent and attentive bedside manner, always takes time to listen and respond to questions, and discuss options. Definitely recommended.
I felt very comfortable, she listened to me before the examination and took immediate action to help me feel better. she will absolutely be my regular gynocologist from here on out.
Dr. Rustamova is an excellent doctor. She's very thorough and she takes time to explain what's going on. I trust her without any doubts.
Pleasant appointment. Staff was very nice and polite. Dr. Rustamova was nice and gentle. Appointment was quick which is great.
Very professional yet personable. Through both technique and manner, makes an intrusive and uncomfortable examination tolerable.
I really like Dr. Rustamova. Her office is very clean and in a very nice building. She was very fast and extremely professional. Her nurses were also polite and professional. I will definitely continute to see Dr. Rustamova and would recommend her to anyone!
She's very thorough, knowledgeable and is a great communicator. I highly recommend Dr. Rustamova. The only down side is the wait time, it's been my experience that good doctors in the city run behind by 30 mins at least. I usually wait between 30-45mins for my appointment at this office.
Very sweet woman. Very professional and caring.
She was great- very friendly without being fake. I was nervous going to a new doctor, but she made me feel completely at ease.
She seems to know exactly what she's doing. gets you in and out very fast. other staffs are professional and pleasant to my surprise.
Friendly, helpful, and patient with my questions.
Really professional, really patient which is so rare to find.
The doctor is very professional and warm. The staff is very efficient and friendly. And the fact that there is blood testing and ultrasound right in the office is a big plus.
This was my first time going to the gynecologist and Dr. Rustamova and her staff made me feel very comfortable. I felt like I was in good hands. Also, the office was nice and clean.
This was my first visit and the doctor sat down with me in her office first to go over my history and why I was there. She was thorough and easy to talk to. Then once it was time for the exam she let me get ready and then was in immediately after. No annoying wait time sitting in a johnny on paper. The exam was quick and easy. I will definitely go back to her and would recommend her to anyone.
I have been going to Dr Rustamova for years and I will continue to do so. she's great and i have never had one complaint. when i have children' i will want her to be my doctor.
The Doctor was very thorough and easy to talk to.
The exam was super quick. However, she didn't take too much time to explain what she was doing before she did it and making sure I was comfortable with it. She did take time to talk to me before hand about my practices and made sure I had lots of information. But the best part was how fast it all was.
Very good listener, nice bedside manner, very competent.
Very pleasant doctor visit. Medical history was extremely thorough and I didn't wait long. The doctor came to talk to me and listened to all of my concerns- nice to find a thorough, caring doc in NYC!!
I am very impressed by Dr. Rustamova's knowledge and style of relating to patients. She is clearly on the top of the curve of medical knowledge in her field but conveys her expertise in an accessible and open way.
Dr. Rustamova is great! very knowledgeable and extremely nice.
I was so surprised when she sat with me in her office before I went in the exam room to talk to me. She went over my paperwork and asked if I had any questions or concerns, then a nurse took me to the exam room to change, where the doctor joined me only a minute or two later. Once the exam started it was over in just a few minutes. Dr. Rustamova was kind and quick without being rushed. I highly recommend her.
I have not been to a GYN Dr in 8-10 years. It was always an unpleasant experience. Dr Rustamova made my visit very pleasant. Not uncomfortable at all. I would definitely use her again .
She has been my doctor for the past year and has been fabulous! I've never waited more than 10min. to see her. Always so friendly and nice.
Loved the woman who saw me, Carolyn, she was super nice and definitely cared about the well being of the person who came in.
She is patient and straight forward.
Dr. Rustamova is very time efficient without being brusque or short with her patients. She is knowledgeable about conditions and their causes and always ready and willing to answer any questions you amy have.
She was great. Made me feel at ease and not as if I was being judged.
Very knowledgeable, willing to answer my questions. Dr. Rustamova is thorough in explaining what is happening during your visit plus what will/should happen subsequently.
Professional, personable and glad to have as my doctor.
i thought the doctor was very detailed and professional. she made me feel confortable and listen to what issues i needed to reivew
Dr. Rustamova has knowledgeable kind staff, an easy to get to location, & awesome equipment at her disposable. I really enjoy her new automated chair for the pap exams. It's so much more comfortable than the old medical slab thing where you have to scoot all the time. It's like the Rolls Royce of Gyno chairs! I would recommend Dr. R to everyone and already have 2 coworkers going there as well!
Very honest, forthright and modern in her practices. Very refreshing compared to my last doctor.
Very efficient manner.
She is really good!! she makes you feel comfortable and that is very important for the kind of intimate stuff that happens in a gynecologist's office. I highly recommend her.
was very pleasant and nice
I found Dr Rustamova to be professional, knowledgeable, courteous & pleasant, very comfortable office environment, I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Dr. Rustamova was very thorough. I was appreciative that she took the time to sit down and discuss my medical history and issues. I found her very informative and she answered all of my questions. The actual exam was quite brief.
She is always very nice and makes me feel comfortable. The other women that work there are also very nice which is a plus. I highly recommend her!
Dr. Rustamova was great. She's very professional and clearly wants to make you feel comfortable. She brought me into her office where we had a one on one conversation initially before we went into the actual doctors room. She answered all of my questions and delivered all of my needs. I definitely recommend her.
Great doctor! Personable, thoughtful, and professional.
Dr. Rustamova was great, had a good idea of how to make a patient feel very comfortable and did a good job answering all my questions!
I waited for about 10 min - then a nice conversation with Dr. Rustamova. I like her since she is professionell, and nice, but up to the point and doesn't waste time. At the same time she takes the time to explains whatever question you might have. That wasn't my first time there and I will come again.
The office staff was exceptionally polite, and Dr. Rustamova was very kind and efficient. This was my first visit so I don't have any long-term experience with her and her staff, but from my experience today I will definitely be going back and will recommend her.
She was very straight forward. Knew what she was talking about.
Dr. Rustamova was so professional and efficient. I generally hate my annual gyno visits but the exam was over in less than 5 minutes. I highly recommend this doctor.
I have been looking for GYN that actually follows through as well as listens and answers your questions. The staff was great and very efficient. The waiting room could be larger but NY rents are crazy so I get it. I love that she has sono equipment right in the office and that she can also perform non invasive procedures in the office as well. Well I think I found the GYN I have been looking for for many years. Thank you to all that have left reviews before me you helped me make my decision.
When you've got lots of questions she's patient and thorough in her explanations. Very honest and straightforward. Would recommend.
She was very kind and quick (yet still thorough). I am definitely planning on using her as my primary OBGYN going foward, and will recommend her to others.
Not only Dr. Rustamova is a fantastic doctor, but also the office is always in positive mood. All my appointments have been handled very professionally. Thank you.
Very bad follow up and communication about situation, meds, prognosis, etc.
she is very thorough and doesn't rush as must doctors would. I am very pleased with her services and care.
The doctor was somewhat abrupt and rude in her comments to me.
My visit was very useful and thorough. Also, the doctor was careful making her decision.
Great visit - talked with me first about new options, explained everything and answered all my question
She made me feel comfortable and gave me enough time to discuss what was bothering me. Her words were kind and it felt like she actually cared.
She was great and so was her staff. I was eally impressed.
Got everything done very fast!
The Best GYN Doctor I ever had.
Great visit. Very professional and made me feel comfortable.
The didn't keep you waiting long, but the time spent with the doctor was less than 10 minutes. She was nice but she wasn't very informative at all, didn't explain what she was doing, and didn't really provide a setting where I could feel free to ask questions.
I was VERY impressed and felt at ease when meeting with Dr Rustamova. I was very nervous going into my appointment since I do not like going to the doctors very much, however I felt very calm, relaxed and comfortable to ask the questions that I had. I will be recommending Dr Rustamova to all of my girlfriends in the city. Thank you very much!
I only had to wait about 15 minutes! Dr Rustamova is very nice and took the time to explain everything to me and made sure I was comfortable. I'm very happy to have found her and highly recommend her to anyone.
Very nice, quick, thorough.
My first visit to Dr. Rustamova for an annual exam was efficient and thorough. Dr. Rustomova is very direct and business-like; her exams are quick. If you prefer more of a soft, gentle, warm bedside manner, she is probably not for you. I would recommend her to friends. The office staff are great; location is convenient.
I would recommend coming from any of the five boroughs to see Dr Rustamova! She is very thorough and very convenient for other procedures like pelvic scans right in the office!
She was very nice and professional. My visit was very quick - despite the fact I have not been to gyno in 6 years. So, I was a bit concerned about the thoroughness of the exam!
Dr Rustamova was friendly, professional, thorough, and made me feel at ease during my first visit. Her staff was very attentive and helpful as well. I would recommend her to any of my friends.
I have been to several different OB/GYNs in my life and Dr. Rustamova is one of the better ones. She takes the time to get to know you beforehand, is interested in your background, family history, etc and makes sure that you get all the proper testing needed (and checks in with you the entire time). I am very impressed and happy I was able to find a doctor that I am comfortable with!! I highly recommend.
Dr. Rustamova is extremely professional and thorough. She has a relaxing yet expedient way about her--a really rare combo. The fact that this office does ultrasound as standard, preventative procedure is so very exciting to me. I feel completely cared for and that I'm free from questions about my own health.
I thought she was great in all aspects: friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. I'm happy to have found her.
Very professional, respectful, attentive. Will definitely go again and she answered my questions quickly and thoroughly.
Made me feel comfortable... Great Doctor...
Dr. Rustamova is a great doctor. As a new patient, she sat with me in her office and went through my history and any thoughts/issues I may have. Very thorough and isn't into unnecessary testing (which is always a plus!).
