I have gone to Dr. Mashensky before and had a great experience! However, this time I did not even get to see her due to the wait time. I was left in the room for over 30 minutes with no onechecking in on me or giving me updates. I eventually had to leave without seeing the doctor.

The office was pretty busy and the wait was a bit longer than anticipated. However, Dr. Mashensky was able to address my primary reason for visiting, along with assessing other key health concerns during our brief time together. This was myfirst visit and I will continue under her care.

I've been a patient of Dr. Mashensky for several years. Today I did not wait for very long in the waiting room but she forgot about me waiting in the examination room so I was there a while. At my lastappointment I waited about 30 minutes but I tolerate it because she is so thorough. She does breast exams everytime, stomach area and checks my neck and throat as well. Shes the first doctor that picked up on my being deficient in vitamin b because of the color of my tongue. I enjoy that she takes the "better safe than sorry" approach instead of brushing things off like other doctors.

Wait time is more than an hour plus half an hour after you are invited to a personal room. Doctor is going is quite rude.

I was very unhappy with my visit to Dr. Mashensky. After explaining multiple times the reason for my visit, I felt rushed, I felt that I wasn’t listened to, or cared for, at all. I was not happy with the record-keepingthat I saw, and I was not happy with the fact that a receptionist walked into the exam room while I was talking to the doctor. I won’t be returning.

Though the wait time is long, it is worth it for Dr. Mashensky. She genuinely cares and takes time to listen to all of your concerns. She is determined to help you get better, regardless of the problem. The best doctor I've ever had.

Odd. People kept coming into the exam room without knocking to talk to the doctor during the exam, including when I wasn't fully clothed. Doctor also prescribed medication unbidden for a cosmetic issue I hadn't mentioned or asked about at all.

Given that I was a new patient, I arrived 15 minutes early to my appointment. I had completed new patient paperwork online, but wasn't sure if they had additional forms I'd need to sign in person. People that had arrived afterme were taken to exam rooms before me time and time again. After sitting in the waiting room for over an hour and asking the receptionist for an estimate on how behind the doctor was (to which she replied "15 minutes" every time), I was finally shown to a room. About 15 minutes later, Dr M came in and asked why I was there, then proceeded to take my blood pressure. She then left the room mid sentence and then disappeared for 20 minutes! Increasingly annoyed, I went to the receptionist to inquire about where she went. 10 minutes later, a different doctor came in to finish my appointment. She was very nice and apologized for the craziness as they were very busy. Over 2.5 hours later, I finally completed my appointment to get seasonal allergy medicine.

Larisa and doctors are great. Wait is a little bit long, which is fine because it is end of year. But the receptionists could follow-up with patients once in twenty minutes or half hour and tell us we are next orhow much longer do we wait. Otherwise, everything is perfect, I like Lairssa a lot! Very grateful.

Dr. Mashensky is a talented physician. She listens, and she notices things that other doctors overlook. I felt she was more helpful than about 75% of the doctors I have seen.

Stuff is very friendly. Wait time is less then 15 ( but maybe because i was at lunch tome) doctor seems to be good. She spent as much time with me as it was required. Hard to say about professionalism. Itwas first appointment and i had to do blood tests and other. We will see after results came back. But first impression is good

She was OK the first time I met her. A bit flat in affect but no biggie. However, my husband, who is extremely anxious about MD, and made appts. for ourselves on the same day after one another. We waited over2 hours and she was still 'on her way'. Not acceptable.

Have had an ongoing problem for 5 weeks AND needed a new PCP. I found Dr Mashensky and was able to see her, .and she has become my new PCP. I described my situation, and the list of tests I alreadyhad gone through. She quickly contacted the other Doctors/Labs and received my records and she offered up probable causes that no one else had seen. Getting a further test tomorrow to confirm. Very thorough and patient. Her staff are a delight too. Feeling wonderful tonight!
