Having recently moved to Brooklyn and not having a physician, getting sick and trying to find the ‘right’ doctor is a challenge. I made an appointment same-day on ZocDoc and filled out all the forms online here. The walk upstairs to the office (literally around the corner from the subway!) was a little dark and a bit of an ominous first impression but inside was bright. The waiting room is a little cramped and the receptionist a bit cold-seeming at first, but everyone ended up being extremely friendly. I had to sign a few forms and provide my address and they thanked me profusely for filling out the forms on ZocDoc. I was provided with the info about an online service that they do that allows me to view my test results like blood work online which was a neat service they have. The nursing student checking vitals was extremely sweet and all the staff was very personable and friendly — especially since most people seem to speak Russian and I am only an English-speaker! They also performed a urinalysis as a standard test for a new patient, it seemed. Dr. Korneeva is an extremely sweet and soft spoken lady who seems to truly care about her patients. She didn’t treat me like a child which is common if you’re a 20-something patient and provided me with a more scientific/medical explanation of what was wrong since I have a background in biology and anatomy. We spoke briefly about our backgrounds including her research work and she asked questions pertaining to my medical history and took her own set of notes. I didn’t feel rushed and she considered before prescribing antibiotics and took the more cautious route with prescriptions which is always a major plus for me. I left the office with a smile, prescriptions, being told to call Friday (today is Wednesday) if I’m not feeling better — and told to dress warmer in the cold with a laugh! Ultimately a very, very positive experience and definitely my new PCP and GYN now that I live in Brooklyn.
