Like many others have said she shouldn't still be practicing at all! Not only are the waiting times at least 2 hours, patients are triple booked on purpose which makes waiting even LONGER! My girlfriend ended up in the ER because she wouldn't see Dr. Orrok every week when she usually went once every 3 months, then every month, then every week! My girlfriend got sick & couldn't go & Dr. Orrok refused to refill her medicines because of it & went on vacation & my girlfriend takes medicine to sleep!

I wouldn’t recommend this doctor or office to my worst enemy. Terribly unprofessional and completely unsure why she is allowed to still practice. 2+ hour waits to be seen and blames her printer. She treats her patients like guinea pigs and is more interested in seeing how the medication works than her patients progress. Office is run down and doesn’t seem to be cleaned regularly. Her secretaries blast rap music and don’t seem to know what an excel spread sheet is. AVOID THIS OFFICE AT ALL COSTS.

Very humanitarian doctor, respects and attends to your questions and concerns, looks at you as a whole and complex person. You may wait more than you normally do in a doctor's office, but that is because Dr. Orrok is giving as much time as she can to all of her patients. I think any wait time is worth the rare respect and kindness that Dr Orrok gives to you.

If I could rate her less than one star I would. She is wildly unprofessional and I've had a terrible experience with her.

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.

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!!!!!!

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.
