Marina is a true Top Doctor - she was awarded this. She is caring and attentive. A person who shows that some people were born to be doctors. Marina knows her patients by name despite the fact her practice is quite big and it's hard to jump on board. Very memorable experience. I recommend Dr. Gafanovich to my friends and relatives.

Caring. Minimal wait time. It felt like the only real doctor and cornell professor who accept insurances, not only cash. It looks like on UES you can see nurse Only if you pay with insurance.

I love the staff! they are so kind and truly category their patients. I was referred there after having a terrible car accident. Dr. Marina Gafanovich has helped change my life around completely. Thank you for everything you have done for me.

Great doc. I think she prefers to deal with younger patients, which I like. Accepted my insurance and provided comprehensive medical advice. Will retain her as my Internal Medicine doctor.

She should not be allowed to practice medicine in the US. She is a quack! Went to this woman for over a year and she almost made me lose my life by taking me off my high blood pressure medicine.

Leaves no stone unturned when it comes to health screening.

Rude and unprofessional. I needed a travel vaccine which I got multiple times before, but he office staff insists you to do the whole entire physical before. They insisted even of doing heart tests before admiring simple vaccine shot. They just want to bill your insurance. The staff did not even allowed for me to speak with the doctor. What a waste of my time.I asked to use a bathroom and was told that there is no water in the office, and told me to go to Starbucks how do they wash their hands?

I have never been to a physician who exhibited just plain greed!!!! My first appointment with her I didn't even meet her, lab work and vital signs were done by staff who then told me I would be called with the results. I told the staff my thyroid levels would be abnormal and that I am being followed by an endocrinologist. I'm called to come to her office for abnormal test results thyroid result and they tried to charge me. When i refused she was hostile. I would never recommend her to anyone!!!
in New York, NY |
I was floored by a follow-up phone call by her staff to check on me. I didn't think this kind of personal care still existed. My entire experience from booking the appointment to the actual visit itself was wonderful. Who knew visiting the doctor could be so enjoyable!
