What People Say About Dr. Sofia Gekker, MD

After seeing her for 9 years, she changed her days/hours with no notice causing me miss an appointment before a work trip (critical time). I called numerous times before my trip, she wouldn't speak to me, finally made another appointment the day before I was to leave, she was a no-show. Sec tried calling her from the office, she refused again to speak to me and would only speak to me in an appt (if she got paid). She is cold & heartless person. I saw her out of convenience & she is an awful DR

She doesn't care t about you or your problems. All she cares about is her pension. She is an evil, heartless witch. DO NOT COME HERE. DO NOT COME HERE.

She was very unprofessional as she suddenly abondoned me when I complained a shortage of prescrition before going on a month vacation overseas. Her staffs were even worse. I even received a bill from this office after a few years from the last visit. Never recommend this place. You will be sicker to see them.
