Dr Halpern was thoughtful, gentle, and genuinely interested in my well-being. It was my first visit, but I feel we really connected. She went over my whole gynecological history and was both soothing and direct with her medical advice.
Dr Faina as well as the nurse were both great, especially the nurse who ran blood work etc was very welcoming, caring and warm. Dr Faina was very professional and felt knowledgeable, although a little rushed. Unfortunately, there was a very long wait time (even though I had an appointment) and the receptionist was not very helpful or friendly.
Dr. Lee is the absolute best. He’s patient, understanding, compassionate and willing to explain in full detail any concerns or uncertainties you may have. He really puts me at ease every time I see him
Very patient and answered all my questions. She even explained and suggested a lot for things outside my visits concern.
The doctor was great as a doctor. However, waiting 2 hours to be seen is RIDICULOUS. I will most likely not return because of that.
Dr Ovitsh has the best manner about him. I never dread seeing the gyno anymore. And there is never a wait. I feel thoroughly taken care of. He listens, I never feel rushed, and I trust him. He's also very humorous! Highly recommended.
I really like this doctor's office! Dr. Jaffe was really great. The appointment was a bit rushed, but understandably so as she probably has to treat lots of patients. I'm happy coming back here.
Doctor Anila Jha has incredible bedside manner and she's extremely knowledgable. She made me feel comfortable and assured that we'd resolve my health problems. Highly recommend and so glad I've found her!
Dr Song was excellent. I was seen promptly (even on a Saturday.) His office was small and intimate. You immediately get a sense of ease with him.
Dr. Gerlach is great - I have seen her both for OB as well as regular gynecological visits and she has been great in all of them!
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.

A general check-up is conducted to examine blood pressure and weight. Apart from this, other tests may be run, depending on your symptoms.

Pelvic exam and breast exam are two types of physical exams that could be conducted during your visit.
