Hamden, CT |
If I could rate her less than one star I would. She is wildly unprofessional and I've had a terrible experience with her.
in Farmington, CT |
I've already recommended Dr. Orrok to some family/friends. She is very knowledgeable. I've had no trouble scheduling appointments with her office, but I have not had an urgent appointment yet. Her office environment is very comfortable and interesting. I find myself scanning every inch of the walls to look at the art. Her waiting room has extremely comfortable furniture, which makes it easier for me to relax. I did wait an hour once, but her new patient intake is so thorough I understand why.

Worst doctor i have ever been to. I am sitting in the waiting room right now and have been waiting for 2 hours. Most unprofeesional doctor i have ever met.

By far the worst most unprofessional doctor and staff! They will make you wait hours for your appointment and won't even apologize for the wait! I'd rather go to bin laden for my health than her!! Do yourself a favor and stay far away from her office!!!!!!
New Haven, CT |
Dr. Orrok is horrific. She's more interested in playing with meds than actually helping her patient. She also has no ability to stay on schedule. I once had to wait three hours for my scheduled appointment (I left for two hours and still had to wait when I came back!). She's awful. Never, ever see her.
