I love Dr. Kizner and his office staff. He was my OB/GYN when I was pregnant with my first child and unfortunately I could t see him with my second child because of insurance, but this time around I chose my plan based on the fact that he takes it. He's warm yet professional and very patient. He'll explain what he's doing and why he's doing it as many times as you need and he's the only OB I've ever known to not want to push tons of interventions throughout your pregnancy and labor. I highly recommend him and his office staff is very friendly, like able and funny.
The office was surprisingly clean, updated, and nice; I found parking on a side street right nearby. The women behind the counter were very helpful in getting me the paperwork, and getting me started. The nurse that took my weight, history, and checked me in (she also took my blood later) was extremely nice and friendly. I only wish Dr. Martinson had been half as friendly. I'm extremely nervous during annual exams and PAPs because I've never been able to get comfortable with a doctor (constantly moving) and they're very painful for me. Dr. Martinson asked standard questions, talked about my history/method of contraceptives, and we started the exam. She did use a smaller speculum when I told her that the standard one hurt too much, but she wasn't nice or patient about it. She was very brusque and more interested in getting the exam over with than making sure I was comfortable. I guess she did her job, and that's all I can ask her to do. But she was also very curt with me about getting my prescription renewed (it was, admittedly, my fault I forgot the package) and warned me to call the nurses with it ASAP because she wasn't going to be in the office for more than another hour or two. She was about 30-40 minutes late to my appointment (I was sitting in the un-airconditioned exam room in those flimsy paper things waiting.... and waiting), too. So I guess really make sure you're on time for your appointment! The nurses and atmosphere alone are worth going here, but Dr. Martinson didn't really seem to care about me as a patient. She just wanted to get in and get out. BE WARNED. This office also changed my appointment without calling me to confirm it or ask! I booked my appointment through ZocDoc and the next morning I had an email saying that my appointment time had been changed. The people at ZocDoc were very nice about it, but it wasn't their fault. The nurse (Vanessa) also made my follow-up appointment without first asking what date/time worked for me. I have a really flexible schedule so it didn't matter either time. Just be wary of that!
I waited like 2 1/2 hours even though I was there on time before I could be seen. They were swamped. Once I was in, though, I was taken care of immediately. I was given very attentive care and wasn't rushed at all. The office continues to call in order to make sure the condition I'm managing is being dealt with appropriately and has helped me to find a specialist. Other than the wait time, which I don't think could be helped - sometimes there's just a lot of people, even if you're working fast - everything was great. I'm definitely sticking with Dr. Wong.
