Eastside experience was actually much better than I'd anticipated. I looked into to going to other clinics and this seemed to be the best option. I liked their VIP service because my abortion was private (I got there at like 4pm or somewhere in there) and my boyfriend was able to sit in the recovery room with me. Most of the staff was very friendly and helpful. Overall the experience was good (if an abortion experience can actually be that) and the doctors were nice. I'm actually planning to switch to their office for regular gyno visits because my doctor's office always takes too long and in talking with the doctor that was doing exams she seemed to be very thorough and honest... anyway.. good experience overall... I would recommend them

I had to terminate my pregnancy unfortunately at 17 weeks. My doctor recommended East Side Gynecology and before going there I read every review I could find. I was hesitant to go because of some bad reviews, but trusted that my MD wouldn't steer me wrong. I'm very glad that I went to this clinic. I had a 2-day procedure. During both visits I was treated with respect, dignity and warmth. Every person I encountered, from the receptionist to the recovery room staff, spoke to me with kindness and professionalism. I was very sad to terminate my pregnancy and broke down crying twice. Both times I was comforted by the staff with warm hugs and encouragement. I really couldn't have asked for better treatment. The nurses in the recovery room were very helpful and informative about aftercare. The surgical staff made me feel very comfortable (the MD held my hand and talked to me pre-surgery, without provocation. He was genuinely just being kind.) If I have anything negative to say about my experience I can say that I wish I had more information / counseling up front about the Day 1 of the procedure . It was very uncomfortable and I felt under-prepared for what was to come. My doctor should have filled me in better on what would happen, too. However, that said, overall I feel that everything went very well and that I was well cared for.

Pros: Nice facility, professional / warm / friendly staff, quality care

Cons: Could have used more info pre-op

HI,
THIS IS MY FIRST TIME GIVING A RATING, I WOULD LIKE TO START OFF BY RESPONDING TO THE DISGUSTING COMMENT THAT CITY GIRL 11 HAD THE AUDACITY TO WRITE. WOULD YOUR STAY HAVE BEEN MORE COMFORTABLE IF THEY WERE PLAYING NIRVANA FROM THIR OFFICE AS OPPOSED TO HIP-HOP MUSIC. YOUR IDEA OF AN UPPER EAST SIDE CLINIC ARE YOUNG CAUCASIAN BLUE EYED GIRLS ISN'T IT!! DO U THINK U SHOULD BE GIVEN SPECIAL TREATMENT BECAUSE U WERE SELF-PAY? I DON'T THINK SO. I HOPE I BUMP INTO U O THE STREET, I WOULD LET U HAVE IT UPPER EAST SIDE STYLE!!YOU ARE OBVIOUSLY A SPOILED BIASED DUMB WHITE KUNT. YOU HAVE THE NERVE TO MAKE THOSE BIAS STATEMENTS REGARDING THEM COMMUNICATING IN THEIR NATIVE LANGUAGE ("YAPPING IN SPANISH") OR QUESTION WHERE THEY WERE EDUCATED, SUGGESTING THAT THEY COULD HAVE CAME FROM NO WHERE ELSE BUT A VOCATIONAL SCHOOL! WHY BECAUSE 95% OF THE STAFF ARE MINORITIES. GIVE ME A BREAK , I WISH I WOULD HAVE RAN IN TO YOUR COMPLAINING BUT DURING MY VISIT BECAUSE I WOULD HAVE KNOCKED THE HELL OUT OF YOU. THIS IS AN ABORTION CLINIC, NOT THE MARRIOT HOTEL, HOW CAN U EXPECT THEM TO CATER TO YOUR EVERY BRATTY NEED, U GOT YOURSELF KNOCKED UP SO DEAL WITH IT NOT BEING 1ST CLASS TREATMENT, YOU'RE STILL ALIVE AREN'T YOU. I WENT TO THIS CLINIC A FEW MONTHS BACK WITH A FRIEND AND THEIR TREATMENT WAS EXCEPTIONAL, THEY EVEN HELPED US TO A TAXI SO GIVE ME A BREAK , FOR FUTURE NOTICE , IF YOU WANT TO BE PAMPERED GO TO A DAMN SPA!!!!!!!!!!!1

This is a highly professional office with excellent nurses and staff. From beginning to end they were caring, helpful and friendly. My wife felt very pleased with the doctor's warm and informative care. I would recommend East Side Gynecolgy to anyone in need.

In my opinion this is the best OB/GYN practice in the New York City area. They can meet all of women's health care needs from the basic to more complex. They have excellent office hours. Their office is nicely decorated. They have efficient office staff.

Based on my excellent experience with Eastside Gynecology, I referred my friend to the practice. To my shock, she said when she tried to Google their contact info, it returned with an awful review. After reading it, I have decided that this must have been written by a disgruntled past employee or something. Why? you might ask. Because the review is so sour, angry and just UNFAIR...My Story; Unfortunately, I have had to have 3 d&c surgeries because of miscarriages. Each time, my Doctor has sent me to an Abortion clinic for the d&c because it is MUCH cheaper. (I do not have health insurance) Talk about insensitivity and rudeness. I had the unfortunate experience of being a patient at two different clinics, primarilly because the treatment and upkeep was so awful, I refused to return only to find equally bad or worse treatment at the next sub-standard facility. Dirty floors, rude, cold staff, and that hurry up and go home feeling you got from the recovery room staff. ENOUGH!!! Then I found Eastside Gynecology. My experience and that of my fellow patients that day was quite positive, all things considered. We were all sharing how kind and gentle the staff was and that the office was clean and beautifully decorated. Not to mention the many other little comforts they have for the patients, like slippers... what a nice touch. If Eastside is a "factory type clinic", I could only hope that ALL other clinics pattern themselves after them. In my opinion, and also that of my fellow patients, Eastside Gynecology staff gave us comfort and confidentiality at a time the we were in the greatest need of both. Do yourself a favor, if the need arises, GO TO EASTSIDE GYNECOLOGY

i refuse to give a rating for the reason that i am outraged! the office magically changed due to renovations and was nothing like it looked on the website! the office was packed with appointments and there was absolutely no privacy! you were on a chain gang line to get the procedure done! i was told over the phone that my insurance was not covered and would cost me 795 so i just wanted it over with so i said fine and gladly paid it in full at the office! i was then treated poorly in the medical room where the anasteiologist was a nasty woman who did not even know how to inject a needle i woke up with bruises in my arm. i woke up in a room with 5 other girls and was quickly pushed out to make room! i then got a bill for 7000 dollars from eastside and then 30,000 dollars in bills from the so called doctor who performed the procedure! i called the office to ask what the charges were for and the lady claimed that she has no idea who i talked to but the 795 was a co pay! i told my insurance provider that they are scamming so good luck to them getting my money! i will do everything in my power to bring this place down and if there are so many claims against them i have no idea how they havent been shut down sooner! DO NOT go here! and DO NOT give out your insurance information to another other abortion clinic.

I went in after finding out I was pregnant. A woman did a Sonogram and had me get undressed while she was in the room (I find that odd) after I was told to wipe myself with baby wipes while she was still in the room. After my unpleasant experiece with the Sonogram I waited for 2+ hours hoping a Dr. would come talk to me about my options. Eventually I spoke to the receptionist who was nasty when I asked her I was interested in hearing about my options. Finally she spoke to a tech, I overheard her say "I dont know what to tell this girl" A nasty woman looks at my songram and tells me I'm not techically pregnant and there was nothing they could do for me...I had to ask her what the next step was and she told me to come back if I wanted in 3 weeks to see if the egg had implanted yet (I am preg just not showing up in ultrasound) No one offered to do blod work take my vitals nothing....The good news is I was so unhappy I went elsewhere and I love it...just the nicest people ever, it's clean they talk to you, and very few people in the office....It's called Early Options it's on 124 E 40th street 212-431-8533

The staff that works here is SLOW. Even with an appointment, you will be in the waiting room for almost 2 hours. Though they get the job done, the staff ISN'T very friendly nor do they care about the patients individually. They're simply a Business- Not caring people that should be working at a medical center.

(This is my first review on citysearch and I found the need to sign up for this site for the sole purpose of reviewing eastside gynecology and letting women know this clinic is def Not the best around).

Pros: Nice, convenient location (Upper east side)

Cons: Slow, unfriendly, uncaring

.

The medical care here may be adequate but the customer service is horrible. Do not believe the claims on their website and phone service that they provide compassionate care. My appts were mixed up. I was led room to room with no word as to what was expected. The waits are long with no explanation or apology. A formal complaint letter was sent and unanswered. On a subsequent visit, I was left in a room and forgotten about until I came out to ask what was going on. I waited over an HOUR to have my chart released to me so I could go elsewhere. The NP was unprofessional and brusque. When I spoke to the office manager of my concerns, she brushed me off and offered to give me names of other docs I could go to. Absolutely unacceptable that I was there FOUR HOURS for a 15-minute procedure. NOT RECOMMENDED.

As a mother of one I had never expected to come to terms with an abortion. It isn't easy decision and everyone has their reasons for doing so. My husband and didn't expect another child after having give birth to one and I was extra careful this time around. After 5 weeks I had been hospitalized twice for dehydration and malnutrition. I suffered from Hyperemesis Gravidarum. It killed me to have a relationship with my toilet. It had gotten so bad the commute to work made it impossible, I had to carry plastic bags with me. The staff at the clinic were more than understanding. They didn't ask the whys or make any faces they simply respected ones privacy. The doctors described the procedure to me to the point I felt comfortable.

I went to Eastside gynecology for an early surgical abortion. I am an older mom and found myself in a difficult situation. The office staff was excellent and very caring. The office was well run and the doctors were very professional. They whole experience was handled in a very caring and understanding way. I would definitely recommend them.

Hello all!!! I have been a patient at Eastside Gynecolgy twice, and I must say it was a wonderful experience. The setting is very private and cozy. It feels nothing like a hospital where the staff is all over the place. They take the time to accommodate every patient one at a time to the fullest. I highly recommend this place to every one. The doctor and staff are great!

This Saturday I went to get an abortion. I checked out a number of places and decided to go here. Yes the wait was long, but I would rather wait and be safe and have great care. I don't usually write reviews, but I have to tell you how kind everyone was to me and how safe I felt. It sucks to deal with being pregenant and having an abortion and I was scared sh*tless, my girlfriends came with me. This place was cool and everyone here explained everything to me. Special thanks to nurse (can't remember your name sorry ;( ) who helped me deal! You were amazing and Eastside is lucky to have someone like you there. The place was clean and recovery was a breeze. Another thing is that they worked with me on the cost and did not make me feel like a charity case. Definatly not a clinic but a place that makes you feel human and understands what your going through at a crappy time. So if your in this situation, checkout Eastside and don't settle for a crappy clinic.

I was running out of my pill so I scheduled an appointment with Eastside Gynecology. They cancelled last minute and told me they were going to call to reschedule. They did not. I called back and got another appointment. I asked about the price of a consultation, and they told me the first consultation was $175 and the nurse will tell me for any other test they will perform that will require me to pay extra charges.

I was received by a bunch of nurse. They analyzed my urine (with a colorimetric strip) and told me everything was fine. I saw supposedly the doctor (but afterwards I was told she was a nurse), I told her the name of my pill (European) and she said she knew the exact equivalent and prescribed it.

I took the pill as usual at the end of my period. A week after I had my period AGAIN (never happened to me before - I am scheduled like a clock). I had stomach pain and it is very unusual for me. I called immediately. The nurse was busy so they said she will call back the day after. She did not. I went to the pharmacy and I was told the pill they gave me is very different from my pill. Ahah.
The doctor / nurse called me back 3 weeks after telling me that in that case she will prescribe me the exact same pill as the one I used to take (why you did not do it in a first place like you told me to ??).

I said I was surprised because I just received a lab bill for $100 while the nurses were supposed to tell me if I was to incur any other expenses. The girl from the bill department keep telling me ??Call the lab, the lab, call the lab?. I keep explaining that they promised to tell me about extra charges and she was rude and repeating ??that??s none of my business call the lab?, like I was stupid. She could not even tell me which acts they performed that require a lab test. I did not care about the lab, I just wanted to tell them that as doctors they are supposed to tell you what they are doing and how much it is gonna cost. Or they could also perform the entire set of tests available on the planet and tell you they had to do it, and then bill you $1000. A very typical principal-agent problem.

So to sum up: service is bad, they don??t call you back in case of problems, they are rude and contemptuous, they are liars, you can expect to pay much more than what they said. And they mess up with my system too.

I had been using East Side Gynecology as my OBGYN for 2 years. I found them on the list of providers who accepted my insurance and they were close to where I was living at the time.

I had visited the office 5 times. I have never waited LESS than 45 mins. The worst was my last appointment I waited 2 1/2 hours. When I complained to my doctor she made an excuse, and I explained that I had never waited less than 45. She got very snooty with me and rushed through my pap and made me feel very uncomfortable.

The kicker was when I received a letter in the mail A MONTH after my pap, saying I had a "condition" that needed attention and I needed to make an appointment asap. This worried me, so I called right away and was told someone would call me back about my records. That was a Friday.

After still not hearing back from anyone, I called back the following Tuesday. I was told to call back on Thursday. I called back on Thursday morning, and was told to call back after 4. I called back at 4 and was told someone would call me. I called back again at 6:30 because (surprise) I still hadn't heard form anyone. I was told someone would call me back after 7. I called back AGAIN at 8:30, a girl answered, told me she didn't know if anyone would get back to me that night, to which I told her I thought their service was appalling and she HUNG UP ON ME! I called back LIVID, left a message on the machine of the ordeal and was called back Friday Morning by my doctor. One full week after the first time I called.

My Doctor told me that she only works on Fridays, and thats why I didn't get a call back. Couldn't someone have told me that instead of giving me the anxiety of not knowing my "condition" and getting the runaround the whole week?

Needless to say I'm picking up my records and seeing a new doctor now. I also never realized it was an abortion clinic, I can't image the stress of getting an abortion and then getting treated like this to boot.

I had been using East Side Gynecology as my OBGYN for 2 years. I found them on the list of providers who accepted my insurance and they were close to where I was living at the time.

I had visited the office 5 times. I have never waited LESS than 45 mins. The worst was my last appointment I waited 2 1/2 hours. When I complained to my doctor she made an excuse, and I explained that I had never waited less than 45. She got very snooty with me and rushed through my pap and made me feel very uncomfortable.

The kicker was when I received a letter in the mail A MONTH after my pap, saying I had a "condition" that needed attention and I needed to make an appointment asap. This worried me, so I called right away and was told someone would call me back about my records. That was a Friday.

After still not hearing back from anyone, I called back the following Tuesday. I was told to call back on Thursday. I called back on Thursday morning, and was told to call back after 4. I called back at 4 and was told someone would call me. I called back again at 6:30 because (surprise) I still hadn't heard form anyone. I was told someone would call me back after 7.

Pros: No Pros

Cons: Wait Time, Unproffesional staff, general disregaurd for patients feelings

My wife and I show up twenty minutes early for our appointment, sign in, fill out half an hour's worth of traumatic paperwork, some of which references releasing liability for our voluntary termination procedure (which we were not there for - my wife had a miscarriage and required a D&C), and proceed to wait THREE AND A HALF HOURS surrounded by people listening to their iPods at full blast and talking on cellphones despite the many signs asking them not to do so. Several times we considered walking out and going somewhere else.

After we're finally given our own room for my wife to change, several nurses and assistants come by and ask us what we're waiting to have done. Finally, after an hour, my wife pokes her head out the door and asks when she'll finally be able to have her five-minute procedure. They tell us we're next in line, then another nurse comes in and says we have two in front of us. By this point, my wife's in tears and we wish we'd gone somewhere else. Keep in mind that this is her health. This is our parenting future on the line if something goes wrong. We have no faith in this place.

Luckily, the nurses were so helpful, kind, and understanding, which awards this place an extra star. But unless they work out their management problems and stop overbooking, I would avoid this place if you possibly can.

After reading these reviews, I AVOIDED Eastside and researched EARLY OPTIONS, as a previous reviewer mentioned. It was the best decision I ever made. Early Options was wonderful, especially during a very hard time in my life. Even the telephone staff was incredibly knowledgeable and comforting. They told me their names and told me to call them anytime if I had any questions. They have long hours and flexible appointment times. When I got to the office, I was treated like a real patient of a real doctor - not like at some factory clinic where they push you through, and don't really talk to you about all your options. I was able to talk one-on-one with the medical assistants and the doctor (who is kind, humorous and believes in natural/ non-pharmaceutical/ non-surgical medical procedures, if possible). I felt very safe and private. My boyfriend was even able to hold my hand through the entire procedure. I highly recommend Early Options for anyone who is looking for a private, respectful, and well-informed environment for early termination of a pregnancy as well as objective advice on birth control methods. It's fairly expensive because they don't accept insurance directly, but it was worth the comfort.

Do you kid yourself mister. If you would like to bring up the issue of the staff/nurses/receptionists, they are Clearly the kinds of people who have graduated with assistant medical degrees from institutions such as Touro or the Katharine Gibbs school, which New Yorkers are more than familiar with thanks to endless television infomercials and subway posters. Yapping Spanish amongst themselves and playing hiphop music from behind their office doors isn't my definition of an Upper East Side professional clinic, neither is the entire staff ordering take-out food and reeking the clinic of China Fun (right around the corner) during business hours, pleasant. On top of that, since when do the nurses bring their children into work and have the boy wander in the waiting area? Besides all that, I can swear on God, nobodyyy from beginning to end even explained anything about my procedure to me even though I was self- pay ontop of paying for a VIP recovery room (an extra $250)... Hard to imagine how theyy treat the patients who have medicaid/medicare- probably as Another Number. So in response to "David" isn't it interesting how yourrr wife (who was treated) didn't botherr to leave a review yet you (a first timerr on citysearch) does?? Quite frankly what man who wasn't even the patient would take time out to sign up for a site justt to leave one review?? Would have believed you were actually a real patient as opposed to one of your staff memebers if it weren't for your immediately rushed response to my initial one, the fact that you are a male posting for the first time, and your wife couldn't even careless to post. Nice try buddy.

Came in today and waited a little bit. Glad they took my insurance (CIGNA). Overall I would say very clean, they care about their patients and I would recommend this place to anyone. I give it 4 out 5 stars just because my wait time was an extra 20 minutes. Understandable when they are packed.

I was really happy that I chose eastside gynecology. I was referred to them by another doctor and I am so happy they told me about this place.From the minute you walk in to the minute you leave you feel so comfortable and are treated like you have known them forever. The place is clean and very elegant. There are NO hidden fees, no money issues. It has been a week now since I have been there and I had to write this review just to thank you for everything you have done for me. Obviously it's a hard time for me but knowing that you guys helped and were there to make me feel comfortable I just wanted to say thank you again. I highly recommend this place
