Dr. Kafali was SO amazing. I waited about 20 minutes to be seen, but I was still in and out of the office in less than an hour for my annual exam. She was thorough and explained things well. I toldher that I had a bad experience at my last anual (with a different practice) and she did everything she could to make sure I was at ease.

My first impression is that Dr. Kafali is kind, thorough, and focused on educating her patients - which I love. I waited an hour to be put in an exam room to see her, and I’m not sure if that’s becauseof first-time patient administrative things that had to be done or if that’s typical. I left 90 minutes after my appointment time, so I’m glad I allowed extra time. I’m hoping subsequent visits won’t take as long because the doctor and staff seem great!

First time leaving a review. This was the worst doctor I have ever seen. Upon my partner discovering he had hep C (my partner is a recovering alcoholic/ addict) I came in for an appointment to make sure I was healthyand talk about safe sex. Meanwhile my partner was starting treatment for hep c. She looked disgusted when I told her. And when I told her I was worried about other STDs she shook her head and said “well you learned you lesson” later saying “well what do you expect when you date someone like that” . She then told me do google my concerns and literally opened her computer to show me how to do a google search. It’s 2019. And please open your eyes to the opioid epidemic. I came in for looking for help and instead got shamed for loving someone with an addiction.

Dr. Sue Kafali was so lovely and was everything I expect from a primary care professional! Very warm and caring bedside manner and she was very thorough with her questions. She also really took the time to listen to all myconcerns and answers. Her staff was very helpful and quite well-informed as to where to direct us for further tests and appointments/follow-ups. I am so happy to finally find a new OBGYN that I am quite comfortable with since my previous one moved to another state.

Absolute worst experience at an OBGYN I've ever had! Dr. Kafali was alright, nothing special but she was satisfactory in terms of my check up. However, the real issue I had with this office is the complete lack of communication andrude manner of the staff. I had a standard exam with a pap done, and in the end it took more than 3 weeks for them to finally give me my results. I called multiple times. The first time they told me the results weren't back yet- fine. I called a week later and they told me that they had the results in front of them but that the doctor would call to discuss them with me but that she was currently out. Waited, received no call back, and at this point, I was extremely worried and stressed about the results. I called the next day and they told me the same thing, and when I asked when she would be back they said not until Monday- a whole extra week. They said they were unable to read me my results because the doctor hadn't reviewed and signed off on it yet. Finally on Tuesday, weeks later, the doctor left me a voicemail with my results and there was something abnormal. She waited weeks to get back to me knowing this information and knowing that she would be out of the office until Monday. I called back to try to discuss the results with her but they said she was with a patient and she would call me back- never received a call back and it's been about a week. I've already gone somewhere else and they got my results back in less than a week and addressed all of my issues that she was completely uninterested in doing. Would not recommend.

Dr. Kafali is fantastic. I sought her out after having a terrible experience with my pervious obgyn. That doctor made me feel like a hypochondriac and would never hear out my concerns. Dr. Kafali took the first steps in asking meabout my health and if I had any concerns. I didn't have to awkwardly ask for more of her time because she actually gave me the time of day, to begin with. She spent about 20 minutes with me and it was all we needed.

I had to wait a while to be seen, but that wasn't a huge deal to me. When I was finally seen, all of the employees who I interacted with were very nice, and I really appreciated this because I wasa bit nervous as this was my first OBGYN appointment and my first pap smear. Dr. Onispir-Kafali was very nice, but she said one thing that made me feel a bit uncomfortable. She asked if I would consider myself a virgin, and when I answered yes, she said, "Oh, now you're making me feel weird, making me feel uncomfortable, because I'll be the first one.." etc. I looked at her, and said "Well, virginity is a social construct, so I don't really care." And to that she responded, "Well, I hope you remember me fondly." As if by giving me a pap smear, she would be taking my virginity. This was a ridiculous and unprofessional way to treat a patient, especially one who has never been to the OBGYN before. After this interaction, I felt that I should be ashamed because of what she had said, but then I realized that this was a ridiculous response for me to have because I had done nothing wrong and she had just made me feel uncomfortable for no reason. I will be going back because I ordered birth control through this office, but when I do go back I will be telling the doctor that I thought the way I was treated was unprofessional. The rest of my experience there wasn't horrible, but this conversation and interaction has stuck with me ever since.
