I have had multiple poor experiences with Dr. Garfinkle and I will be seeking a different practice. A few years ago, he challenged by birth control decision and acted incredibly condescending. At a later appointment, he was flippant about a PCOS diagnosis, did not explain it well and treated me with disrespect. Throughout my pregnancy, I did not see him but unfortunately he was on call during my delivery. He had me push for 10 minutes, during which time he was rude and told me I was doing it wrong and asked if I had a hearing problem because I wasn't understanding. He left to see another patient, but made the nurse stop having me push. He NEVER came back and I didn't get to start pushing again for 45 minutes. When he discharged me, he rushed through post-partum care, talked to my husband and not me and didn't even examine me. In summary, he is a condescending man-splainer who is not up to date on current best practices. Avoid this doctor if you can help it.

I have had the best experience with this office! The front desk is wonderful and truly cares for their patients. Every doctor is great especially Dr. Garfinkel. He is positive, encouraging and listens to his patients! He delivered my twins and worked closely with me during my entire pregnancy. He was present during the entire induction/labor/delivery at the hospital and made sure I was comfortable the entire time. Also, they have an online portal and Dr. Garfinkel responds within hours no matter the subject! Highly, highly recommend!

Extremely insensitive doctor with very unprofessional staff. After being overcharged hundreds of dollars, I have been waiting for a refund check for over 3 months. The office wait times are extremely long and the staff scheduled me for an appointment that the doctor was not there for. I wasted a whole work day for this. I felt extremely rushed and the doctor was extremely insensitive to a very unfortunate situation

I am always seen promptly. Quality of care is excellent. Answers all my questions. (Other physicians and the NP at the practice are also fantastic.) He delivered my second son and was extremely accommodating to all my requests and a truly felt like I had an advocate on my side. I even witnessed him "teaching" the resident (post-delivery).

Dr. Garfinkel has delivered both my children via c-section. With our first child, he allowed me time to see if I could deliver naturally. But when the time came for a c-section, it was done safely and my recovery was great. With our second, he wasn't supposed to do the surgery due to a scheduling conflict, but he adjusted his schedule for us. He's so kind, knowledgable, thoughtful, and funny. Any questions I had, he answered at appointments or via email promptly. He's a wonderful, skilled Doc!

Dr Garfinkel is the best. I had mono/di twins with a safe happy delivery thanks to Dr G. His expertise in twins helped us throughout the pregnancy and birth.

Doctors at this office don't go over any basics of pregnancy precaution. Also, I had a 10 week and 12 week pregnancy routine checkup, and they did the down syndrome testing because it's routine testing. My test result was normal, no genetic disorder, however the office billed me as genetic counseling instead of routine pregnancy checkup. What counseling? the doctor didn't even say anything to me other than it's normal. But I'm being charged genetic counseling, which is much more than checkup
