I'm shocked to read the reviews of Dr. Korber! She performed a thorough exam, went into great detail with her explanations, and I was not rushed. Her and her staff are considerably better than my last gyno office. I left feeling happy and like I had all my questions answered.

Just one comment! Try Dr. Korber for yourself! Don’t just rely on other people’s comments! One reviewer thought Korber was basically uncaring and dismissive but loved Dr. Marinescu. Personally, I found Marinescu uncaring and dismissive but Dr. Korber was totally sympathetic and caring and good at her job. So, go figure!

Dr. Korber has been my Doctor for over thirty years. She has always been willing to take the time to listen to all my concerns. She answers all my questions and is very thorough with all my care. She is a five star doctor in my opinion. Her staff has always been courteous and has been with her since i have been going to her. I think this speaks volumes on the quality of doctor that she is.

Rude, dismissive, unfriendly, not comfortable to talk to, rushed, keeps eyes on own computer, her sarcasm and demeanor comes across as though she does not care. Please find another Dr., read the reviews, get someone who makes you feel apart of the team not a customer in line at the DMV.

I went to Korber with pelvic pain and other issues and asked her to do bloodwork in addition to imaging and an exam to find my problems. She was very unprofessional and rude. She refused to do any blood work and her idea of a pelvic exam was to insert two fingers for two seconds and literally said, "There your done"! I was horrified at her behavior and lack of empathy. I found an amazing doctor (Dr. Marinescu) who discovered fibroids, endometriosis and cysts on my ovaries.

Dr. Korber is a highly skilled, knowledgeable, wonderful physician. I'm postmenopausal with a history of ovarian and uterine issues and with Dr. Korber's thorough, conscientious, conservative care, I have avoided a hysterectomy and have regulated my hormones.

My experience with Dr. Korber was great. She explained everything very well and listened to what I had to say. I am very comfortable with her opinion and expertise. Please don't let the negative reviews sway you. I highly recommend her.

Kept me waiting in the waiting room 45 minutes, another 30 minute wait in the exam room. The exam was a 2 minute cursory exam, the woman was in a hurry! The prescription she wrote was faulty but luckily the insurance company caught the error. The worst doctor I have ever had.

Worst doctor! She speaks to her patients as if they are complete idiots. She is the rudest person I have honestly ever met. I went in for a second opinion on my treatments for pcos and instead she tried recommending me to go see a therapist. She is a complete disgrace as a doctor and I would not ever recommend her to anyone! If I could give her zero stars I would.

First time visit and after reading reviews, I can't say I had very high hopes for a good visit. It's hard to have to replace a beloved doctor but some of the reviews I had seen on Dr. Korber were very disheartening. Dr. Korber was great! Spent time going over my chart and concerns. Answered questions and I never felt rushed. Very professional without being cold. Would not hesitate to recommend her!

DO NOT RECOMMEND!!!!!!Worst Doctor I have ever visited. Dr.Korber was cold and unfriendly from the moment she came into the room. She seemed to lack basic medical knowledge to the point where she couldn't answer my questions. She actually made me feel stupid and uncomfortable for wanting to ask questions. She lacks empathy and patience. She seemed hostile and degrading. She has a bad attitude. She is unfriendly and unprofessional. Worst bedside manners I have ever.

Very arrogant, cold and judgemental. I had some deep health concerns and dismissed them that was overweight, which at age 65, 5'1", 137 lbs didn't apply to my concerns, pain in my breasts. She refused to order further tests because I had a mammogram 5 mos ago. Nasty woman, bad doctor.

I saw Dr. Korver the first time today as a new patient. I had some initial bad labs come back from my regular doctor so I was going to her as a specialist. I called to make an appointment and wanted to get in as soon as possible. They set an appointment for a week later but then called back in the afternoon to tell me they had a cancellation and could see me the next day. She was recommended to me by my doctor. I found her to be very patient and thorough. She explained everything in detail.

The receptionist and office staff are very polite and helpful. Dr. Korber did not let the patient wait unlike most of doctor's visits. Dr. Korber explained what the patient needs to do as follow-up clearly and precisely.

This lady is literally the devil! She is nasty, rude, judgmental, toxic and the list goes on! Told me to put on my brain a think for a second when I asked her if some of the symptoms I was listing off would possibly have anything to do with the new birth control I was taking. She then went on to say "birth control doesn't have any side effects, they wouldn't put it on the market if it did!!!" What a complete idiot! Save yourself and never go to her!

This lady is witch! I only saw her once, but my god I have never met a meaner person, let alone dr. I came to her with intense pelvic pain/symptoms; she did an exam and purposely, I believe, hurt me doing the exam. When it was over she degraded me and said so many rude/condescending things out of nowhere that I didn't even know what to do. I was shocked and upset and started crying and she basically told me I was stupid and shouldn't have even come. I was bawling by the time I got to the front d
