Great doctor. Most tolerable trip to the OB -GYN ever. Pap was quick and painless. No one had an accusatory tone, just asked questions politely.The lab tech took my blood painlessly! Everyone was nice! Quick, but nice! I would definitely go back here! Bring a book and be prepared to wait at least 30 minutes, but overall, not too shabby.

The wait time here was ridiculous. I was in the examination room for 40 mins before I saw the doctor. Aside from that, she's very nice and thorough.

I went in for a 6:30pm appt but wasn't called until 7:30pm. Usually, they leave the room for you to undress/dress and that was not the case here. When the doctor came in there were 2 other assistants there as well. The doctor started my pap smear but the assistant took it over and the doctor left the room. They sent my RX out and i was done by 8:00pm after them taking bloodwork. I spent more time with the assistants than I did with the doctor. I felt that she was questioning me with my BC and if I was being honest about which one I used before. It was a little uncomfortable because of what I've been used to but I do plan on going back there. One of the assistants were great- wish I got her name.

I went in for a routine check up - good location, easy to get to from the train or driving. I went on a Monday so my wait time was very short (less than 30 minutes). They didn't take my weight or BP (just asked me if I knew it and wrote down what I told them) and afterward, they didn't give me anything to clean myself. I appreciated the doctor's speedy technique, very non-invasive and no fuss, straight to business and no need to hold my hand or walk me through a routine I've been through since my teens. The staff was very nice, the Medical Assistant couldn't be sweeter, and the Dr. was very professional and didn't waste my time. All in all, I had a good experience, but just a tip, if you're paying cash, make sure that you ask for prices regarding SPECIFIC procedures and tests. They charge way more for a PAP with HPV screening (which I didn't need) than without so double check at the front desk while you fill out your paperwork, and again at the other window when you're leaving!

Dr. T was booked so I actually saw one of the male Gynos at the office but he was really nice and not weird and explained everything very well. It was my first time at the gynecologist and he made me very comfortable.

The office was so clean and modern. This was my first time there since I was changing doctors. I made the right decision. The staff was highly professional. The intake was complete and nothing was missed. Dr. Trakhtenberg was remarkable. She was knowledgable and very professional. I felt so comfortable. I recommend her to all women needing an OB-GYN doctor.

Dr. Trakhtenberg and the other doctors have a lot of patients - so no matter what time or day of your appointment, you always seem to be the eighth, ninth, or 10th person there. Bring your phone charger and a good book. She's a very good doctor but the wait time can be murder: her receptionist staff is at best just okay. If you speak Russian, then they're probably much easier to understand.

The doctor was very professional, although she is straight-to-business and doesn't take much time to explain. My first impression was definitely damaged by my experience at the front desk. They were very short with me, and intimidating instead of helpful. Maybe the staff member was having a bad day, but it definitely made me question if I wanted to return.

Very uncomfortable. Felt like she really did not want to be bothered. When I asked her certain questions, she stared at me with an expression of "Not today ma'am". I did not know if she knew it but her facial expression was less than inviting. It made it difficult for me to go on with my other concerns.

Went to the doctor because of the good reviews. Waited for over an hour to be seen. The doctor spent somewhere between 3-4 minutes with me. I already knew my issue from other check up outside United States, and just needed to find a doctor to treat it here. When i told her about it, she did not seem to care. 3 weeks after my visit i did not receive any call backs or any sign of results of my tests. I tried to call and just got rude responses from Nella (receptionist) who said we do not call back customers unless there is something wrong. Honestly worst experience i've got with gynecologists so far

The office employees were very friendly however the wait was very long. My appt.. Was for 10:45 and I wasn't seem until 12:30 or so. The doctor and nurses moved very quickly and I would have liked for them just to slow down a bit with the questions that I had.

Although the receptionists seemed a bit cold in personality they were very professional and made my process of checking in smooth and simple. The doctor was very knowledgable in this field. I was very happy to know that the facility had the proper machinery to examine my ovaries in the office - preventing me from having to make another appointment elsewhere.

This is the worst experience ever! The Total Waiting time was more than 2 hours. First I was waiting an hour in the lobby to be called in the exam room. Then I was waiting a doctor in the exam room more than 1 hour and 20 min. How ridiculous it can be?! They don't respect the patients and the patient's time. The doctor just made and exam and left before I asked questions about my treatment.
