Dr. Zhanna Pinkus is very caring and loving. Can’t say enough appreciation! Such great experience especially during the pandemic. She is one of a kind doctor.
Most amazing and caring doctor I have encountered. Everything from her bedside manner to her genuine concern about her patients differentiates her. Despite the distance, i continue to seek her out. To have an obgyn who truly cares about your wellbeing is invaluable. Thank you Dr. Pinkus!
I tried to make an appointment as a new patient. Was given slot about 2 months away. No biggie, just a check up. A week before my appointment was canceled and rescheduled in 5 weeks. guess what?? it was canceled again. By the office. Terrible service
Dr. Pinkus is the BEST! She is very kind and patient.
If you want to see your healthy pregnancy getting to the finish line avoid Pinkus by any cost.
Dr. Pinkus caused so much pain and grief in my life. If you have a healthy pregnancy you will be fine with her and she will spend max 2 min with you of her time. But if you have trouble in pregnancy don’t expect she will spend any time with you or show any compassion. With my first pregnancy she prescribed me medication that is highly not recommended to give pregnant women and cause problems in fetus development. Of course I found out about it when I lost my baby at 20 weeks. Coincidence? Maybe... negligence to prescribe wrong medication to pregnant woman- 100%... With my second pregnancy I called them and asked if I can see Pinkus earlier because my previous miscarriage and front desk lady said by their protocol they can’t see me before 8 weeks... well, I had another miscarriage because Pinkus neglected me second time, she failed to see me early and check my progesterone and other blood work. She just came in the room and said “ sorry, seems like another miscarriage” and left!!!
Unorganized, if you're willing to wait 45 min from your appointment time, knock yourself out. They are very busy around lunch time and triple book, then check out wait time is 15 min to pay your copay because only 1 girl was working the other one was avoiding patient eye contact and busy filling medical records. Ridiculous!!! Dr is not helpful either. Don't waste your time.
Dr. Pinkus is an absolute gem. She has been my doctor for a very long time, delivered both of my kids and takes the time to address any concerns. So if you have a wait a minute it’s because she is taking her time and listening to the questions and concerns of her other patients. Everyone likes to be in and out as fast as possible, but I’d rather see a doc that cares for her patients then going into a factory. Pinkus all the way!
You cannot get past the Secretary. Dr. secretary borders on rude, obstructing and don’t give one iota for a patient appointment. Go somewhere else with a secretary that is human.
I called to the office to find out, if they take a cash patients and what is a price?The dr. I was looking for to speak, was a russian speaker. I was told, that she is in very high demand. Receptionist was not a wear of all details I asked, so she transferred me to a manager of Dr.Pinkus.Very strong, arrogant, irritated, very parenting voice, harsh and abrupt voice took over the phone call. It was manager of that office, Claudia Guzman.I introduced my self, explained what was my call about, what do i do, for how long, I name it all Dr’s and hospitals Im working with.I offer to bring for a meeting all my Certifications, try to introduce with my web, inst, the answer was NO need it.Ok, will try approach different way.As a owner operator of my business for 10 years, I realized that this woman need help with her professional and welcoming skills for potential clients at her office for HIGH DAMEND Dr.Pinkus.The firs question was, can I meet with a russian doctor to discuss some business, answer was NODo you take a cash patients 32-34 weeks with all reports, tests, from another dr,s?NO, “you have to send all reports, by fax, or drop at office only.( those patience majority from oversees, or different States)Do I have or patients a choice to email, like i do all communication with other dr.?NOIt was more questions, its no reason to write, because the answer was justNO.I kept listening her answers, which was not even related to my questions. I stay calm professional, and positive. Finally, Claudia Guzman changed her voice tone to a parenting voice. Her statement was, basically, “ i have to kiss her @$$, if i want business with dr.”After all this “Successful business “ conversation, she offers to me make an appointment as a PATIENT TO Meet with a dr. Pinkus” to discuss business!!SO, I HAVE TO USE MY INSURANCE TO MEET AND DISCUSS A BUSINESS ?”. WOWTHAT HOW MUCH DR, BUSSY!!After all, I was ready to hang up on her, but i really wanted to meet with a Russian dr. I believed, that dr., was not a wear how her manager running the office business, or may be she did knows?Working with obgyn and pediatrician doctors at different hospitals, in SD, OC, LA, never had any experience like that.HAS NO LISTENING SKILS AT ALL, how that office can help to pregnant woman?I hope dr.Pinkus knows all and how and who is running the business for her!!Unfortunately my Russian patients would not be able to get help in OC from very high demand ru.speaking dr. Pinkus.SHE IS JUST VERY, VERY BUSY, according her manager Claudia Guzman.
Amazing care and attention. If you are weary of going to see your OB then meet Dr. Pinkus and her amazing staff. I actually cannot wait for my visits. There is no one I trust more with the delivery of my children. Simply THE BEST!
I don't normally leave reviews for doctors, but I saw that the reviews for Dr. Pinkus on here are not accurate at 3/5 and felt compelled to correct this.Dr. Pinkus is an exceptional doctor, with high levels of professionalism, great bedside manner, and a kind demeanor. I was very anxious coming to her office for check-ups, because I am very nervous around doctors in general, having had several bad experiences due to a traumatic injury. She was very good not only with getting me results quickly and accurately but also with a high level of compassion. She shows care towards her patients and ensures that they are comfortable, which I greatly appreciated given my background.My only complaint is that the administrative process for getting appointment information can be difficult, because the office always seems to be very busy. I once had to call 7 times during regular office hours just to get through. But this has nothing to do with the doctor herself, who is outstanding in her field, and whom I hope to see regularly for my check-ups.
It doesn't get better than this! I am a pediatrician and used to work with OB's. They always overbooked patients and had one hand on the door as if they didn't have time for you. Dr. Pinkus takes so much time and goes the extra mile to make sure all of your history checks out so that you are not at risk of preventable disease. I trust her to deliver my baby and know I can recommend her to any patient.
Dr. Pinkus left the Torrance practice without so much as a word to her patients. When I called the practice to complain about that, they said they asked her several times if she wanted to send a letter and she did not. That is patient abandonment and not acceptable.
What a waste of time!! I haven't even seen this doctor yet. I've been scheduling since Dec. First off, they give you an appt at least 3 weeks out and when you need to see an OBGYN about family planning, it's hard to wait so long, but I did. In Jan, her office called me and said that she wouldn't be able to make my appt so we had to reschedule... so I did. Cut to today, ANOTHER month later, her office called me back and AGAIN said she couldn't make my appt. Don't waste your time!!
Dr Pinkus is the best Ob Gyn I have ever seen. She is very calm, patient, listens to her patients concerns and makes sure her patients health is on point. I had horrible experiences with my first three children. She delivered my last boy and girl. I had complications with my last two babies. Even worse with my last daughter but because she made quick decisions with my last two kids, My son was born healthy and my daughter wouldn't of made it alive if she wouldn't of sent me to the hospital asap
Love dr. Pinkus, and i am so sad that i will no longer be seeing her due to my insurance. She always took the time to explain things, never felt rushed with her, she is gentle and kind and i think she is a great doctor.
I saw Dr. Pinkus one time, and I felt like she really cared about my concerns. She gave me all the time I needed and never rushed me. I work in the medical field (for an RE) and we ALWAYS recommend Dr. Pinkus and her team of Dr.'s. Patients need to STOP believing in their self-diagnosis' and start believing in the Dr.'s advise. All the negativity stems from the Dr. disagreeing with a pts self diagnosis. Dr. Pinkus is wonderful and I will continue to recommend her practice always!
I had a horrible incident with Dr Pinkus. She handled it extremely poorly and I would Never, EVER recommend her to anyone. Her office staff was uncaring and seemed more concerned with their personal lives than working. The only nice person was at check out. Dr Fisher who works in the same office has NO personality and is completely uncaring. Stay away. Far far away.
I recommend Dr. Pinkus to everyone I know. I've been seeing her for 3 years now and I am always in and out of her office without waiting and still always feel like I have enough time to ask questions. She's one of those doctors who makes you feel like she knows you and cares about you. She's great!
