Dr. Biswas was professional, kind, and thorough. She also seemed concerned with giving her patients a pain-free visit (not that pap smears are painful, but they can be uncomfortable). Her staff is friendly and knowledgeable. I would recommend this office to any of my friends.

My appointment was scheduled for 10am (first appointment of the day). I arrived at 9:45am, bought into an exam room at 10am. After my vitals were taken, I was told that the doctor was still not in yet (it was around10:10am). I waited for another 10 mins and was told that the doctor just arrived and to change into the gown. I waited another 20 minutes (10:40am) and opened the door to ask when the doctor would see me. I was informed "shortly". The doctor finally walked in at 10:52am; spent three minutes with me (for my annual exam) and then left. I was told that she was not aware that I was waiting... This was my second visit with the provider, but definitely will not be coming back to her.

She has been my Ob-Gyn for the past year. She also delivered my second baby. She is amazing at her job and will guide you through your treatment options. I have had a fantastic experience with Dr. Biswas during my 2nd pregnancy and delivery.

Treatment was callous, communication was awful, and I will never be returning. My questions were brushed off, and both Dr. Biswas and the administrative staff made me feel like an imposition. The administrative staff lost my paperwork and then never sent me important follow up information.

She didn’t hurry and explained things thoroughly. Although I wish she would have helped me relax during the procedure. Personally, I already feel uncomfortable going to OB-GYN appointments that I certainly appreciate a comforting professional.But maybe for other women this isn’t a big deal. Overall, she was pretty good.

Eh, this visit was so-so. If you don't have any questions/concerns then it will probably be ok. I was waiting for at least 25-30 mins by the front desk before going into the examination room. This was after arriving 15 priorto my appt. In total, it was probably an hour before I was seen. The worst part though was probably changing into the gown and waiting *another* 15 mins in a cold room before I was seen. Going to the dr. is already uncomfortable enough and this made it worse. Dr. Biswas was pretty short when answering questions around pill options etc. Seemed rushed and a bit annoyed that I didn't "know" certain things. Certainly not helpful when dealing with issues that really can affect your day-to-day. Got my prescription and haven't been back since.

I went for my annual checkup with Dr. Biswas. First, the office misspelled my last name on the log in for the app that they used to provide your results. I called and left a message because I was concerned itmay interfere with me being able to receive my results. The issue was fixed but no one called me back. Then it turned out that I had a condition that required medical treatment. I received a message through the app and was never phoned by anyone from her office. I left more than one message and phoned her office several times over two days so that I could provide a pharmacy for her to send my prescription. I still have not heard back and my pharmacy has not received anything from them. The lack of accessibility and response is disappointing.

I would not recommend this doctor's office to anyone. I was examined by Dr. Biswas who I felt was cold and uninterested in me as a patient. She took tests which were then supposedly added later to my patient portal. Icould not access the patient portal (there seemed to be a host of web problems they were dealing with) and the staff were unhelpful in helping me access it or connecting me to the doctor to see my test results. I tried to call Dr. Biswas more than 5 times for an explanation and was never able to reach her. After persisting for several weeks, I gave up —I guess I just will never know what those test results meant or are.

I have had several visits with Dr. Biswas and all have been excellent. She is efficient but allows time to answer questions and provide necessary information. She is very busy, as most ObGyns are so you may not get to keepevery appointment you make. I have had to reschedule but that's just expected sometimes since she needs to be available for deliveries. Overall, I have had a great experience with Dr. Biswas and she handled my surgery prep and day of very professionally.

I have been with Dr. Biswas for many years. She delivered both of my children. She takes her time to answer any & all questions. She provides information that many doctors don't seem to mention (this is in comparison to myfriends' & their experiences). My husband also thinks very highly of Dr. Biswas. She is the only gynecologist that I would go to!! I hope she doesn't retire anytime soon!!

She's my favorite doctor out of allof the doctor's (PCP, other specialists etc) I've visited since moving to new york 5 years ago. I highly recommend.

I waited over 2 hours for my initial appointment. I initially thought everyone in the waiting room was waiting for that long as women who were there before I was also waited at least an hour before being seen (one visiblypregnant woman was asleep on the couch when I got there and was not called for another hour). However, when I made it clear that I could not wait any longer it was clear from their reactions that they had simply forgotten about me, despite the fact that I had checked in both in writing and verbally with the desk staff. By way of explanation I was told Dr. Biswas had been called to a delivery, no idea why this couldn’t have been conveyed to me when I checked in.... My actual appointment was less than 10 minutes, 8 of which was just giving blood, and 2 spent with Dr. Biswas herself. During this time I was asked twice if my pregnancy was wanted (which felt great!). Dr. Biswas herself was very cold and seemed rushed and annoyed. The entirety of our “conversation” consisted of her interrogating me about the exact date of my last drink (a single drink...)and repeating that I needed to commit to the practice for the duration of my pregnancy and for the birth if I wanted to be seen again and that I needed to let them know if I was not going to go with them (this was repeated more than once for some reason). Despite being told that my test results would be available online the next day I had to call after several days just to get confirmation that I was indeed pregnant. This information was conveyed by the again annoyed-seeming nurse just telling me my numerical HCG levels (super informative!), and only confirming what this actually meant when I pushed. When I called several days later due to constant nausea making it difficult for me to work/ function I was once again told I would need to commit to the practice for my birth and told I would need to get an ultrasound at another location, then make an appointment with Dr. Biswas and then they would be able to treat my nausea. This would have taken at least a week, no option given to be seen sooner. Needless to say I have found a new doctor. The staff and the doctor have little to no bedside manner and clearly no real respect for their patients.

I went to see her when I was experiencing some discomfort. My lab results came back positive, but she never contacted me about it after the results came back. After emailing her and calling her office, she responded with a singleline: "your results are negative". I had to go see another doctor to get antibiotics. Dr. Biswas' office insists you use their online "patient portal" for all communciation, but she never responds until you call the office anyway so what's the point. Save time and go find a better doctor.

As a disclaimer, I should note that this most likely sounds a bit absurd. However, because of Dr. Biswas and the awesome women who work in the office (ie her nurse and even her receptionist is wonderful), I can now saythat I honestly enjoy —almost look forward to—going to my OBGYN appointments. Dr. Biswas and her nurse take the time to thoroughly answer every one of my many many questions. More than that, I always leave feeling like they’re legitimately looking to make me understand what’s going on as opposed to just rattling off answers. Biswas is efficient, wonderfully knowledgeable and has an awesome ability to make you feel calm, taken care of and comfortable—most likely because in that office you know you’re in good hands.

She either changed her mind or forgot about a blood test she initially claimed was necessary to determine if I am truly post-menopausal. (I knew it was not necessary.) The exam was painful and her remarks and advice unhelpful. On apositive note the bad experience did prompt me to get better informed about the different stages of menopause and the many remedies available to help alleviate its detrimental effects.

I greatly appreciate Dr. Biswas' professional manner. Her office is clean, virtually no waiting time, and if I were to nitpick: my only issue would be her desk staff not immediately acknowledging my presence while socializing with anotherpt and each other. However, this still took less than 5 minutes of wondering whether they saw me standing in line. So not a big issue, and I would highly recommend this wonderful doctor.
