Dr. Nitkin could come across as brusque and/or condescending, but I kind of liked that. He was efficient and told me what I needed to know. The office staff were mostly nice, and the wait wasn't that bad considering it was my first visit. I'll continue to see Dr. Nitkin.

She's amazing and so helpful when discussing birth control options. I felt super comfortable and taken care of
She was friendly, thoughtful, knowledgable, non-judgmental, and willing to chat about any and all questions I had. I barely waited 5 minutes for her both in the waiting room and in the exam room. I'm honestly looking forward to my next appointment!
She's a sweet, older woman. Obviously knowledgeable. My concerns are that she lacks a energetic, engaging personality and she prescribed me medicine that wasn't covered by my insurance. I asked before leaving her office if the prescription would be expensive and she said no. Her medical assistants are nice and have great customer service. This was my second appt with Dr. Shah. During my first appt, I waited almost 2 hours before seeing her. I believe she over booked appts that day. So be aware of that possibility.
Dr McDaniel was very knowledgeable and quick and very experienced. She was able to finish my appointment with ease and made me feel comfortable. Which is rare with a gyno. However the staff in her lobby were not the most professional, or informative. They seemed aloof to the patients who were waiting or confused, and didn’t seem to want to help or do more then the bare minimum. They also were not very good with patient sensitive information. They’d loudly talk about how patients labs were being sent off and discuss HIPPA information too openly for a lobby in my opinion. Also the wait was 30-45 mins and the lobby was very minimal. I was given a piece paper instead of a gown to cover myself with during the appointment. Felt very low end. Would go again in a pinch because the doctor is knowledgeable and kind, but not somewhere I’d want to go regularly
Very thorough and super easy to talk to. She made the whole visit very relaxed and answered all my questions.
Dr. Chan answered all my questions thoroughly despite being busy. Good bedside manner . The nurse was sweet too.
Dr Neha is great. But the staff is confused and misleading in terms of insurance and communication. Waiting time is always more than an hour. Maybe Dr Neha should take fewer appointments which would value patients time.
Dr.Marsan was great, very efficient, and friendly. The wait time was about 45 minutes which was frustrating, but the pap and blood work was done in less than 10 minutes total.
The wait time was a little longer than expected however Dr.Ahmadi is amazing and very compassionate. Truly a great doctor.
New York Gynecologists
Gynecologists specialize in diagnosing and treating conditions associated with the female reproductive system while minimizing health risks. Patients receive medical care for pregnancy, childbirth and general reproductive health. Many gynecologists study obstetrics, and are known as obstetrician/gynecologists (OBGYN); In addition to women’s health, they are qualified in providing care before and during pregnancy.
Typically, a visit to the gynecologist includes a comprehensive physical evaluation, diagnostic screening, counseling, and treatment. Screening tests may be recommended to detect early signs of conditions such as cervical cancer or breast cancer. Gynecologists also provide consultation for family planning; It could include conception, birth control such as IUD, and surgical procedures like hysterectomy.
When it comes to your reproductive health, a visit to the doctor’s office can help identify and treat cancer of the female organs such as the ovaries and cervix, cysts, prenatal problems, STDs/STIs/PIDs, unusual vaginal bleeding, and sexual dysfunction.

What to expect for a gynecologic visit?
A general check-up is conducted to examine blood pressure and weight. Apart from this, other tests may be run, depending on your symptoms. This helps the practitioner rule out possible underlying medical conditions that could, in turn, affect your gynecologic health. Pelvic exam and breast exam are two types of physical exams that could be conducted during your visit.
- A pelvic exam is an evaluation to check for vaginal, labia, cervical, ovarian, and uterine abnormalities. The need for a pelvic exam is determined based on your symptoms.
- A pap smear is usually conducted as a part of the pelvic exam. It is a screening done to detect signs of cervical cancer; however, the need for one will be assessed by your doctor.
- Breast exams are carried out to check for breast cancer signs.
Apart from the physical exams and other tests, this visit is an excellent opportunity to discuss female health issues and concerns with your healthcare provider.
