scheduling appointments is the only opportunity that I would note. otherwise, the doctors, nurses, and staff have always been great. I have been coming to the same office for almost 10 years. always have been incredibly helpful, willingness to answer any questions or concerns, and I feel like they truly care.

I felt like my concerns weren't taken seriously, I wish the nurse I spoke to the first 2 times would have told me I needed an appointment post miscarriage the first 2 times we spoke. Dr. P's bedside manner could be improved. She told me I needed D&C and that was it. I also wish that when she first told me I had likely miscarried she would have told me more about options of D&C vs natrual method.

I had such a pleasant experience with Dr. Elena Pirozhnkik. This was my very first trip to the gynecologist, which made me very anxious, but Dr. Elena made me feel so comfortable and safe. I would absolutely recommend her to others and will definitely be coming back. So glad that there are wonderful doctors like her in the field.
