This was my second visit to Dr Mashensky's office. I enjoyed our time together. She actually remembered our previous visit and asked to check up on it which I thought was great. It showed that she not only had a goodmemory but also shows she cares. I was a bit surprised but this because her office seems to be pretty high volume. This is the negative part. Not only were there a lot of patients waiting but I feel like I got passed up a few times by people who came in after me. This is not really reflective of Dr Mashensky herself more than her staff but it does add to the overall experience. I will see her again since she's close to my office but I just need to make sure I factor in about 2hrs of my day which not for nothing is a lot.

I have recommended many friends and associates. She is so knowledgeable and a great diagnostician. She doesn’t leave a stone unturned. Helped me loose almost 30 lbs ! She is always one step ahead . She has a quiet presence but listen closely to her words of wisdom !

I had an appointment at 12:30 pm and I was called at 2:00pm . This is the second time it happens. If lunch time is busy maybe they should not schedule so many patients at the same time. The doctor is cold and does not do a thorough review

This is the 2nd or 3rd time I had to wait over 1 hour 1/2. The staff is rude and sound frustrated or all over the place. I don’t blame them as patients are frustrated waiting for to long. The doctordoes not spend a lot of time to understand your medical history and she is not thorough. First time I met her she was cold and does not ask a lot of questions.

Wait time was alarmingly long this visit. Took me almost 2 hours to see the doctor. Hopefully this will not happen again, as this is a major deal breaker for me.

Great doctor straight to the point with good advice, however she ended up forgetting that I was waiting to be attended to after being seen by the doctor's assistant and ended up waiting an unreasonable amount of time (more than anhour and 30minutes), I will however commend her for admitting the mistake and apologizing once finally arriving to the room.

Her answer to anything i asked for was, “Oh, im pretty sure your insurance won’t cover it”. Meanwhile I called my insurance later on and they disagreed with her assumptions. All she had to do is check. She wasn’t helpful inanyway. Did my blood test and left. Not returning for sure.

I waited for over 75 minutes, was left in the room wearing a paper cover for 45, and when the doctor came in, I had to remind her to check my heart, blood pressure, etc. She did not weigh, check my eyes.

The wait was long today as the office was unexpectedly busier than usual with multiple walk-ins. However, Dr. Mashensky is excellent and thorough. My only complaint is that another doctor or assistant opened the door and walked into my examroom while I was in the middle of an EKG and was topless. They knocked and the Physician’s Assistant warned them not to enter, but they disregarded this and came in anyway. The PA apologized and seemed very upset about it. Despite this mishap I think Dr. Mashensky is great and would recommend her to others.

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.

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.

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.
