I received poor care by Dr, Garkinel and am leaving the practice as a result. Not only was he mean spirited and a 'mansplainer' at my appointments and delivery, his quality of care and dated practices are not on par with other health care providers. The icing on the cake, however, was that he messed up my son's circumcision. My son now has to have surgery to remove extra skin that should have been removed at circumcision. Unnecessary and preventable surgery that my two year old has to undergo because of Dr. Garfinkle mistake. Do not go to this practice.

I was extremely disappointment with this particular doctor in this practice. I went to them because they were the backup for my home birth midwife and so they did the ultrasounds etc. I found him professionally inappropriate, rude and condescending. He tried at every visit to get me to change to his practice and have the baby with them or at the birth center that he is now the backup for.... I had to repeat numerous times that I was happy with my care with my midwife and was not interested in switching. I was very happy I did not need to seem him for the birth and had a lovely home birth. This was a few years ago but since then I have met numerous moms that had similar experiences with him.

Truly grateful Dr. Garfinkel was on call when I delivered. Throughout my labor several doctors had examined me, but he was the only one to realize my water hadn’t fully broken and that my baby was sunny side up. When my baby’s heart rate suddenly dropped, Dr. Garfinkel was able to safely and quickly get her out with a vacuum. Despite having her umbilical cord wrapped around her neck 3 times, my baby was able to recover quickly and I am healing well. Thank you so much, Dr. Garfinkel!

I am a new patient with Dr. Garfinkel. He showed much empathy for my medical problem, answered all questions about it in detail, and showed great competence in analyzing and treating it. I had a very successful visit and left comforted and relieved from my worries. The staff was pleasant and everything was very well organized to protect from the Coronavirus. I feel my health is in good and competent hands with Dr. Garfinkel.

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!

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
