I have nothing but great things to say about this practice. I had a twin pregnancy so had more visits/ultrasounds than someone pregnant with one child might. I developed a great relationship with the office, specifically the ultrasound tech Erin. She was amazing. My water broke at 34 weeks and Dr Fickies delivered my twins. The procedure went great, and I've recovered nicely. Dr. Burstyn followed up with me in the hospital and had a great bedside manner. I highly recommend this practice :)
in Ballston Spa |
This my third pregnancy here and I couldn't be happier with this amazing doctor and wonderful staff members that work here. They were always friendly and helpful to me I'm scheduling appointments I needed and working through some issues with the hospital and labs because of my insurance.
Loudonville |
Caring. Girls in the office are friendly and spent an hour on the phone with insurance company to get me approved for a test at the ImageCare downstairs. They got me in right a way and got back to me the same day about results.
in Saratoga Springs |
Sue Koller is best bet to get in and out on time. Everyone in the office was nice and polite and quickly faxed my disability paperwork for my pregnancy.
in Loudonville, NY |
I would give her 10 stars if I could. My quality of life changes drastically because of procedure she performed. I did not expect such a drastic change after suffering for 3 years. God bless her, her staff, and their families!!
in Niskayuna, NY |
We just wanted to say thank you delivering our son and making our entire pregnancy experience unforgettable. Erica and I will never forget your professionalism. YOU ARE A CLASS ACT!!!!
in Niskayuna, NY |
I feel like I am seeing a friend who I can trust when I come to her office. She has my best interests in mind and I would trust her with my life when it comes to medical decisions. She delivered all my children and pretty much saved my mothers life by giving her very early diagnosis and risks associated with her condition.
in Ballston Spa, NY |
The office personnel is very rude. When I was trying to rectify an invoice, the supervisor of billing hung up on the phone with me. This was the first time I had called with a problem in over a year. Dr. Burstyn is very difficult to get an appointment with. I decided to try another office and would not recommend anyone going to this practice.
in Loudonville, NY |
Very pleased with my appointment. My questions were answered to the fullest extent.
in Latham, NY |
Very considerate doctor. Scheduled my procedure herself when I had a couple of issues with the hospital scheduling. She is very well respected there.
in Colonie, NY |
This office is awful for prenatal care. Doctors do not take much seriously. Seems like they are on auto-pilot, probably because of too many patients. There are signs that say "emergencies happen often which can waits" - probably because the patients are nearly neglected until the emergency occurs. I'm still waiting on test results from 12 days ago relating to my miscarriage-prone pregnancy. Called about severe pain, was put on hold and hung up on. Called back, left message. No response yet.

Dr Burstyn is smart and kind. She has great bedside manner and her office is beautiful. I recommend her to everyone I know.
in Schenectady, NY |
Dr. Burstyn is an exceptional specialist. She has been truly professional to the highest degree from my first OB appointment to my delivery day. The office is also great, they always try to help and handle everything professionally
in Niskayuna, NY |
Professional and Caring Woman! All of my concerns were addressed and questions were patently answered. I completely trust her and her PAs. Everyone I met there was compassionate and professional.
in Troy, NY |
Their office staff handled a sensitive situation so incredibly poorly. Then, they decided to terminate me as a patient because I COULDN'T shell out the nearly $400 they were asking for in order for me to even have my appointment. I offered to pay $150, and they told me they would only take $200. I understand that they need to get paid, but the way this was handled was disgusting, especially the letter I received. I will never recommend this place to anyone else.
in Albany, NY |
I had an emergency situation that required me to have surgery. Although I was told their will be a wait, once I saw Dr. Burstyn, she was very understanding and patient with all of my questions. After a nerve wracking day, it was a relief to see such a great doctor.
in Schuylerville, NY |
Dr. Burstyn is investing all of herself in providing excellent care. Amazing doctor - will definitely recommend.
in Albany, NY |
She is very knowledgeable and spends a good amount of time with you. The wait time however is long, both out in the waiting room and then again in the exam room.
in Schenectady, NY |
Thank you for all your kindness+smiles during my pregnancy:). You all really are the best!
in Lathem, NY |
Very knowledgable and I have great trust in her and her staff.
in Glenville, NY |
Dr.B is awesome!
in Scotia, NY |
Waited for more than 20 min.Office staff is friendly and explained that the wait was due to emergency. She answered all my questions and I never felt rushed.
in Schenectady, NY |
She is absolutely awesome and I love her nurse Meaghan!
in Latham, NY |
Amazing Doctor and overall experience! The only issue I had was with the reminder message. It was difficult to understand what the person was saying (she has an accent).
in Scotia, NY |
Dr. Burstyn delivered both of my children. One of my pregnancies was extremely high risk and I also had to go to Dr. Margono at St. Peter's who is also amazing. In my opinion there are very few physicians out there who can match her professionalism, caring, and ethics.
in Ballston Spa, NY |
She is very smart and has a great bedside manner. You know you are in good hands when you ask her questions and listen to her offering you different available options. I am very pleased with my experience at her office.
in Schenectady, NY |
I recently transferred to Dr. Burstyn's office. She is very honest and direct and has your best interest in mind. I am very happy with her office.
Albany, NY |
Very positive experience. She's a wonderful doctor. The office is great.
in Niskayuna, NY |
She is the best GYN I have ever seen. Wait time was more than 30 min. You need to improve this aspect.
in Saratoga Springs, NY |
Doctor's and Nurse's response was very nice. There was warmth in their behavior.
in Albany, NY |

in Albany, NY |
I only have great things to say about Dr. Burstyn and her office. Everyone I came in contact with was extremely helpful and considerate. I got a very quick call back when I needed to talk to the nurse and she answered all my questions. She followed up with my request and spoke to Dr. Burstyn about several additional questions I had and got back to me very promptly. Thank you!
