Dr. 

Vaizman Irina Cherepashinskaya

MD

1.5mi
OB-GYN

She is very nice, and I liked her, so I went back for a second visit (I had to go to see if a possible cyst would clear up). The second time I went, another woman saw me -- can't remember her name, but she was a little older, American, blonde, blue-eyed. She was very abrupt, gave me the results, that there was nothing in the ultrasound. When I asked her, then, what was causing my VERY painful periods, she said it might be endometriosis. I asked her what that was. SHE TOLD ME TO LOOK IT UP. I thought that was the weirdest, rudest response a doctor could give a patient in need of some assurance, information and assistance. She wouldn't explain it, just said that I would need a laparoscopy to know for sure if it was endometriosis -- and she wouldn't explain what the hell a laparoscopy was either, just said "surgery". Turns out endometriosis is a serious thing, and it was pretty scary having to read about it on Wikipedia. Everyone I've told this to is absolutely outraged that a doctor would reply to a patient like that. When I told Dr. Irina about it, she was kind of nonchalant about it. That put me off a bit as well. I still like her though. Unfortunately, they do not have the Mirena IUD I should get to treat this very possible endometriosis (since birth control pills have given me depression in the past), so I'll have to go to another ob-gyn any way.
