Dr. Minkoff treated my mother after she moved to Mass, until her passing after 7 years. Both my wife and I chose as our doctors retired to switch to her. She is inquisitive, learned, and gets to the point quickly. We are very happy and grateful to have such a competent physician treating us.

Aram Matevosyan – Jul 23, 2019
Essentially told me that I was wasting her time the minute she walked in. Told me to go on a 3 day cleanse. Told me her next patient was already here and what did I want from her? The most bizarre doctor's appointment I have ever had. It's like she gets paid every day to belittle people. Dr Minkoff doesn't care one bit about her patients and instead of using the knowledge she allegedly learned in medical school, she keeps pushing random cleanse and diet books without even collecting any data or let you even open your mouth to talk. Why should I come see her and have my insurance pay her who knows how much if I can get better advice from a $10 health fad book. Absolutely useless.

phil blanchette in waltham, MA – Jan 28, 2019
I will never set foot in her office again. 1. Rude, disrespectful and bad attitude in general. 2. She refused to give me an ultrasound for the mass in my right side. I literally had to beg her. 3. She said my frequent urination was caused because, and I quote "You don't know how to pee correctly"!!!!!! She wrote me a prescription for pelvic physical therapy. 4. She refused to test me HSV, HHV, EBV or Bartonella. Her reason was because "everyone has those viruses". Totally unqualified!

Ross Jackson in Arlington, MA – Oct 27, 2017
Please beware: Dr. minkoff is truly one of the least informed doctors I've encountered. She's not very bright -can't connect dots. She doesn't understand chronic illness, how autoimmune disorders develop or that having CHRONIC Epstein bar is very concerning. She's incompetent, condescending and I do believe she is dangerous. She doesnt work with her patients. She memorized a few text books and basses her practice on that. She's not intelligent doesn't bring anything to the field of medicine.

DO NOT SEE THIS DOCTOR! Inattentive, rude, does not care about patients. My mother went to her with excruciating back pain that had landed her in the ER, Dr told her she was just getting old and that diagnosis didn't matter because treatment would all be the same. Gave her Oxy. Said she didn't need tests run, that she was "passing from the grape to the raisin stage" of life. Month later we discover pain is severe herniated disc, needing surgery. I cannot say DO NOT go to Dr Minkoff enough times.

Dr. Minkoff did not listen to problems I was having and brushed any symptoms I had off as nothing to worry about. She acts as if she doesn't care about you at all. The worst experience I've ever had with a doctor.

A Miller in Winchester ma – Jan 27, 2017
I recently moved to Cambridge from California. Once I acquired insurance, I chose Dr. Olga Minkoff based on availability. I was able to get an appointment within a week and half - which is a vast improvement from my previous experience in southern California. The administrative staff was polite, helpful, and friendly. The MA was personable and kind. She gave me adequate explanation and instructions when doing my entry paperwork and taking my blood. I don't do well with needles; I felt no judgeme

Casey in Cambridge, MA – Dec 04, 2016
Dr. Minkoff was a little judgmental when describing my concerns to her and was terrible at communicating with me with regards to treatment needs. Her nurses we not friendly at all. I barely stayed with her a year, and it was ONLY so I could see a doctor in her network without a referral.

Belmont, MA – Apr 01, 2016
Dr. Minkoff is attentive and I feel comfortable with her presentation and plans, however, Dr. Minkoff never asks about previous conditions, so records can't really show whether the problem was resolved or is ongoing. i.e. dermatitis has been mild, if at all, for the last 1-2 months. This is the longest lapse since my radiation therapy. A few extra minutes touching on previous/ongoing conditions would complete the record and would be appreciated.
