When I went back for a test, the nurse made me wait 30 minutes, and then said she made me wait because she had no idea what I was there for, and was waiting to ask the doctor. She said it was my fault for being indecisive about which test I should get, which made no sense because I had called and made an appo

Dr Pena is the only OBGYN that I've been to in NYC that doesn't try and rush you out the door in 30 seconds. She was very professional, compassionate, and truly cares about her patients.

She is really in a rush and her assistant is very indifferent, doesn't look at you. I requested the result and it was sent 2 weeks after the result is ready. Wouldn't recommend her if you don't want to have a bad mood.

Dr. Pena was great! I've tried several different OBGYNs since arriving in New York and she was by far the best. She and her staff made me feel welcome and comfortable. I was looking to switch medications and she was helpful at recommending new ones, and even providing a sample.

Dr. Pena was amazing! I always psych myself out for my yearly visit, and she was so, so calming and patient with me. She talked through everything, kept me distracted, and completely put me at ease. I love that she talked with me before and after the exam. It didn't feel rushed at all.

I have gone to her a few times and Dr. Pena is awesome! Because it is a big office, you might have to wait 10-15 minutes, but she is totally worth it. It is more like talking your personal problems over with a girlfriend than with a doctor. Also, I had a question about a prescription and I emailed her through the app they have and she responded with a detailed answer within 24 hours, saving me a trip in for another appointment.

Dr. Pena is super chill, excellent at that awkward first-time questioning -- she picked up on the fact that I'd mentioned my boyfriend, and looped that into her questioning about sexual activity and partners. Her manner made me feel very comfortable, and she kept up the banter while she checked my boobs for cancer, and my baby box for problems. I sort of feel like I could call her Vanessa, but I won't, because she's a doctor and she's awesome at her job. ALSO, the stirrups were plastic, with little wooly cozy footies -- best warming ever.

Dr. Pena was efficient and straightforward. I was seen very promptly and the office was modern and well-located. There was nothing flagrantly wrong but the interaction felt very dry. I've worked with other OBGYNS who took more time to get to know me and get a sense for me as a person. I came in with questions and they were briefly answered. I felt like she just wanted to wrap up quickly. It was the quickest breast exam I've ever had to the point of feeling concerned that it was not thorough. I personally prefer doctors who take their time, get to know me, and make suggestions on how I can improve my health and well-being. Which I've experienced in the past. Made me appreciate the level of care and service I've received from previous professionals. She is professional but I felt like she did the minimum and didn't really go out of her way so to speak.
