Yorktown Heights, NY |
Dr. Harracksingh is a very caring person, easy to talk to and listens carefully
|
Been Dr. H's patient 19 ys. Have to diaagree with negative reviews. Even when my insurance changed for a short period of time I wouldnt risk seeing another gyn and i paid the difference in coverage. She is to the point, aggressive in her attention to your case, and honest. Her staff is directed by her and she has her input on everything. I am not there to be friends with her, Im there for her expertise & devotion to womens health issues. She is intelligent and a straight shooter.
Cortlandt Manor, NY |
I have been going to Dr. Harracksingh for the past 18 years. She took care of me through both my pregnancies and I would trust her with any medical advice that I inquire about or that she gives. She is a humanitarian and is thoroughly knowledgeable in her field and is up to date with the latest medical advancements. I have been totally satisfied as a patient and would fully recommend her as a physician.

Dr. H has been my gynecologist for about 10 years now. She is the only gynecologist in the area who is holistic also. She not only tends to my gynecological needs, but has helped to optimize my thyroid medication. She treats and advises one on the whole person. I highly recommend her. Fran Nelson
in Yorktown Heights, NY |
Dr. Harracksingh is very attentive, sincere and knows her stuff. I have been under her Integrative Medicine protocol for over a year and I feel like I'm in good hands. I have seen dozens of doctors over the last 10 years, where I was told it was all in my head and i was depressed. Dr. H was very thorough in her testing and found my issues and is treating me for Lyme and other imbalanaces. I feel better than I have in many years and though it is a long journey, I am certain I will thrive.
in Cold Spring |
I simply have to put my two cents in here. There have been a few bad reviews of Dr. Harracksingh and I have to say that they definitely do not represent the level of care that she gives her patients. I have had Dr. Harracksingh as my doctor since 1994 when I was pregnant with my second child. She delivered three out of my four children and I have had nothing but excellent care from her. Yes, her bedside manner can seem abrupt, but she is no nonsense, telling you exactly what you need to do or
in New York, NY |
Very unprofessional! My worse experience ever.
in Cortlandt Manor, NY |
I would not. 16 years ago yes. from 3 years ago, definitely not. Her staff was not responsive and rude. could not get billing information. Billing issues. Doctor scheduled additional tests without explaining exactly why or coordinating with me or insurance for coverage. Would not release results from various test for me for almost two months after repeated phone calls and worry. Would not return my calls for results and queries. Never went back after this.
