    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.

    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

    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.

    Not very knowledgeable. Fine for a cough or sneeze, like seeing nurse, anything more than that, you better go to someone else.
    in Barre, MA |
    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.
