I had an appointment at 10:15 AM. Dr. Rustamova arrived to the office at 10:45 AM. I was sat in a gown until 11:35 when she came in. The actual exam took 5 minutes and she was lovely, but I thenwaiting another 20 minutes for a second procedure, which again took 5 minutes. Not sure if this is unusual for the practice, but I waited for a total of 2 hours 10 mins for about 15 mins of actual procedure. Very disappointing as a first time patient when she came highly recommended.

After one minute of friendly chat, Dr. Rustamova did not warn me or ask my consent before touching me and proceeding with the pelvic exam, which was alarming. I've grown used to (and personally need) gynecologists asking, "Are you ready?" orat least saying, "I'm about to touch you; I'm about to insert the speculum." There was none of that here. The entire exam lasted about 3 minutes and did not leave me time to request STI testing, and the doctor didn't offer it. This was after waiting for 45 minutes, much of that in nothing but a gown in a cold exam room. I left the appointment feeling confused and brushed aside, and had to call when I got home to request STI testing on my swab. This was my third or fourth visit to Dr. Rustamova and the bedside manner has noticeably deteriorated. After this experience I will not see Dr. Rustamova again.

My first time meeting Dr. Rustamova. I liked her, but felt as though the wait times in between seeing each individual nurse, technician, and the doctor was long. Also I was asked to move around from room-to-room and also use therestroom ahead of an exam after I already disrobed and was barefoot, so slippers would've been nice if I'm going to be asked to move to another exam or procedural room.

Dr. Rustamova was very kind and attentive to my concerns. Front desk staff were also friendly but I had issues with filling my prescription, where the information had not been correctly transferred to my pharmacy. It took a couple of weeksand calls to the office to resolve. Otherwise a positive experience !

I have seen Dr. Rustamova a few times now and I feel that my most recent time will most likely be my last. I constantly feel rushed out with my appointments, and I find her bedside manner to be pretty poorI never really feel super comfortable when expressing my concerns with her. The young woman who is usually the ultrasound technician also has terrible beside manner and really gives off an indifferent and unprofessional attitude. Both the Dr. and technician have made condescending and judgmental comments to me during past appointments about my lifestyle choices, that I am in my late 20s and don't have a birth plan, even the type of IUD I chose! Will be looking for another doctor for the future..

Extremely well-run, welcoming, and clean office. Dr. Rustamova was more thorough than any other gynecologist I've visited in the past. She listened to all of my concerns, and was direct yet comforting. In-office ultrasound was also a huge plus. Could not recommend more highly!

Dr Rustamova is about caring for a persons whole being not just the physical aspects. She takes time to find out how you are doing mentally and emotionally as well. it is rare to find a doctor who is about thehuman as a whole and not just tunnel visioned into their specialty. I highly recommend Dr Rustamova

It did take a long time to get seen, which was surprising to me because my appointment was in the morning. However, Dr. Rustamova made me feel very very comfortable, and the pap smear hurt WAY less than any other papsmear I've ever had. So, overall I would recommend her because a comfortable and safe environment and a painless pap smear was worth a long office wait for me.

I really like Dr. Rustamova. I am a new patient who came in with complications related to a (potentially) very early pregnancy. I was very anxious and nervous, but Dr. Rustamova was positive and reassuring. The office also has a midwife,Debra. I was not particularly thrilled with her bedside manner, and prefer to communicate with Dr. Rustamova. I found her to be very negative during my session, essentially talking to me as though a miscarriage was a forgone conclusion. It did not sit well with me at all.

What an amazing doctor and staff!!! I got there 15 min early and was taken in right away by one of her assistants to begin gathering the preliminary information (height, weight, blood pressure, etc.). The staff were all really sweet andfriendly. Then the doctor came in and we spoke for about 15 minutes about different medical issues that my symptoms may be of. Then she did the annual exam and sent me to another assistant to get an additional test. I thought I was done but she asked me into her office for another 20 minutes to tell me all about great remedies, ideas for a healthier diet, and positive vibes to get my symptoms under control. She was engaged, smart, funny, and such an amazing doctor! I was so impressed and happy to have had the fortune to find her (by accident) on Zocdoc after my regular doctor rescheduled my appointment last minute. I so recommend this lovely doctor!!!!! :)

My past appointments with Dr Rustamova were great. The last time I went to see her, the ultrasound tech was rude to me and when my appointment was done they told me to have a seat in the waiting room tospeak with the doctor. I waited for 30 minutes and no one came to get me. I could over hear her speaking with nurse asking why I was still sitting there and even after that no one said anything to me. I don't know if I will see her again, it's unfortunate that this last appointment did not go well.

I went to Dr. Rustamova’s office because it was close to work. The Zocdoc reviews seemed promising and said there was short waiting room times-I hate going to a doctor’s office to wait in a room for more than an hourfor only about 10 min with the doctor. Sadly, my experience was unlike others-I waited about 1.5hr before being taken back to the room and then waited another 15m in the room before the doctor came in. I wanted her to explain my options for contraception other than the pill and various side effects based on my needs. Instead she just sat back and stared as I asked about different options I heard about from friends/the internet. When I mentioned that I wasn’t ready to have kids she was a bit condescending in telling me I shouldn’t wait too long since I was in my late 20s and was running out of time. All in all not the best experience and will look to find another doctor in the city.

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)!
