Supposed to have a glucose test, but guess what :-) no one contacted me, and I can not reach them, because I don’t know who to reach for it’s 10 or so doctors there…Also still didn’t receive the testing for DNA, gave been waiting for more than 2 month now.Doctor in my last visit checked only heartbeat of the baby, and nothing from what’s supposed to be done ( by the book I read later- like palpating at least)I am changing the doctor!!!Sorry, I really hoped that I will receive a good care there and be a patient not a number or whatever…I don’t know who to contact there when I have questions… main reason!I don’t have any results on my patient portal ether…
Love Dr. Whitehead. I have had good experiences with this office for both Gyno and OB services.
Hard to get anything done with them! Trying to refill my prenatal vitamins for over a week! Nonsense!!! And can’t even talk to them on the phone.First doctor I met there was Dr Min, she was good! That’s why I decided to stick with that OBGYN, but I don’t deal with Dr Min ever, but have to deal with other people who work there. And NOT HAPPY!Just trying to get my prenatal vitamins OMG.And other things that they said will send us, but never happened! Aghhhh I’m so angry! And don’t know what to do!!! It’s too late to change the OBGYN that’s so F…d up! Hopefully will have a different opinion after delivering a baby!
I really do not understand these reviews! I went in yesterday after a friend recommended the spot. I was seen by Dr. M. Bahora.The front staff was kind and I was seen pretty soon after filling out some initial intake paperwork.I do get the rushed nature of things in some of the reviews. I think this is a general complaint against doctors these days. Everything feels rushed and there’s no pause to really learn your patients. But I still think we are pandemic mode and I appreciate the additional measures at the office to ensure a healthy space for all.I think as you continue to cultivate the doctor-patient relationship the tenor will take to your liking and change, too.I felt all my questions were answered by Dr. Bahora and the information I requested was provided to me. I was referred to other docs for some of my fertility concerns (egg count, egg freezing).It’s a great space on Broadway. Unless you have had a majorly sour experience, one star ratings on Google is just a miserable act by some miserable humans.This was a great space for women and led by women. I would recommend giving it a chance!!!
I have gone to Downtown Women for over 10 years, specifically Dr. Min, who is wonderful. I recently went through a pregnancy, so I saw most of the doctors on rotation, and had generally really great experiences as well. Dr. Whitehead delivered my baby and she was wonderful as well. It's a great practice with qualified staff to help with everything.
Such amazing doctors. Every doctor and support staff in this practice is beyond wonderful. They are supportive and helpful and make you feel beyond involved in choosing your care. Their offices are very nice and more importantly their staff is amazing. If you want quality care look no further.
I have been going to Dr Buxbaum for about 8 years and she is incredible. I have never had a more thorough and thoughtful gyn before—and I have been to many practices over the years. She is a brilliant diagnostician and is concerned with my overall health —not just her specialty. If I need to see someone urgently, the office is great and I can see another doctor/nurse practitioner —usually on the same day. There is some waiting involved when you see Dr Buxbaum because her check-ups are so thorough and she answers every single question. I think it’s worth every single minute.
Dr. Lajoie is awesome. She actually listens!
I really don’t understand these reviews. The office is never packed and I am always seen on time and certainly no one is ever rude. I love all of my doctors here, especially Dr Kolton and Dr Buxbaum. The care and treatment is top notch and the respect and listening is of the highest order.
Have been going to downtown women for years and have reco’ed many friends. The absolute best patience care! Dr Buxbaum was so wonderful— incredibly kind, extremely thorough and knowledgable, comforting. Every doctor I’ve seen over the years as been great!
I just delivered my daughter with Downtown Women at NYU hospital and it was a wonderful experience. During my pregnancy, I met with each doctor so I felt very comfortable on delivery date having any of the doctors deliver our baby. Each visit, I had multiple questions that I would write in advance and each doctor spent time with me answering each question. In addition, I loved using the patient portal to ask questions directly to the doctors. I used both this tool or I would call the nursing line. I always received an answer within 24 hours. I really liked the office experience as it was quick, always on time and clean. Also, the location was super convenient right in SOHO. IF we decide to have a 2nd child :) i will 100% deliver with Downtown Women at NYU.
I first came there 18 years ago when I was expecting my first son. Kind of was happy with them so they have been my doctors since (left the country for 6 years, had my other kid somewhere else). Since I am back, 10 years ago, went back there as it was the only one I knew. Was never super pleased by the service, but as I was just going there for my anual check up, with no issues… and I am lazy in term of finding good doctors. Especially if everything is doing well healthwise.BUT!!! Recently had a mammogram with issues… took me a week to get in touch with the office to get results! Had to go back for a second sonogram, after one week, still no news from them! I hate them so much! Worst doctors in the city! I am now looking for a new one. Do not go there!
Terrible experience with multiple doctors. I knew something was wrong and multiple doctors refused to take action or even run tests. Turns out I have a genetic disorder which OBGYB should have diagnosed. The specialist I finally found was appalled that OBGYN did not diagnose.
Dr. Min is amazing but the office staff is and has been atrocious for years - rude, lacking in empathy, and rushed. Also, I have mostly in recent years been shuffled off to nurses who lack both the bedside manner and expertise of Dr. Min and who seem to be making calls based more on office visit fees than clinical indications. I was a patient at this practice over a decade and I truly love Dr. Min and will follow her if she ever leaves this practice but today’s experience with the support/nursing staff was the end for me. I won’t be going back.
I am of the "don't say anything unless you have something nice to say" school of things, but I am breaking my rule today. 16 years ago I had such a terrible delivery under their care that I am still dealing with the emotional ramifications. Absolutely awful experience. Many of the doctors are still there. Avoid avoid avoid.
nurses are nice enough, but otherwise it's impossible to get in touch with these people. Billing department will obviously answer your calls though.want your money and nothing more. Wouldn't recommend.
Worst experience of my life. Completely disrespectful staff. I tried having a conversation with a nurse and she walked away in the middle of my sentence. Never go here ever !!! Very disgusting and not clean at all.
I called in with a question regarding my health and test results and left a message for the doctor. After 2 months I finally get a call back not from a doctor but an assistant,. Wow. Glad to hear my health was a priority. I asked them point out if they treat all their patients like this OR do you do this to just minorities. I found the service is not at par for minorities patients. You don't get the same equal treatment but worse. They couldn't answer me. I truly suggest check somewhere else for check-ups. Simply not worth the time. Probably get better service elsewhere.
Received prenatal care and delivered my baby in August 2020 with Downtown Women and had such a positive experience. Every dr was really wonderful, I never felt rushed in appointments. They complete in office ultrasounds and blood work which is very convenient. Nurses and dr’s are very responsive via nurses line and online portal. Loved that it’s an all female practice and was able to meet all of the dr’s at least once throughout my pregnancy. Had a wonderful labor and delivery and overall experience.
I highly do not recommend this place to anyone. The doctors are awful. They will not address any concerns that you have. The doctor that I saw said she point blank that she was too busy to answer any of my questions. Never bother to return my calls. The doctor fumble her way to do a physical. Stay away from this place. The Doctor Lajolie told me she didn’t have time to talk to me - extremely unprofessional. Told her about my concerns and she disregarded them. Didn’t want to hear it and told me to speed up. Does any doctor do that to you?
