I was a little forced into taking a full physical program, but I do not regret. The doctor is very polite and professional, doesn't get too personal but stays on top of the problem.
Travel shot for a vacation to India. Her rule is to have a patient change their primary care doctor to do this, but I did not have mine at that time, so was an easy decision to make.
Excellent approach shown by Dr. Gafanovich and her staff. The staff is really comprised of nothing less than awesome people. Very amiable and ready to entertain you while you are in the waiting room. Dr. Marina loves what she does. I can tell because I am a passionate entrepreneur myself. Highly recommended.
The office got a facelift since I've last been here. Fortunately, the doctor remained the same. Dr. Gafanovich continues to provide the remarkable service that I got used to. She is prompt, yes, but very efficient and answers all questions in a polite and down to Earth form.
Dr. Marina is very caring and attentive. I am not deep into medical stuff, but I trust her completely and therefore feel safe about my health. She is not cutting down coverage even despite the number of patients that she has. Sometimes, this is a problem, but I never wait for long. Booking in advance helps.
I will try to enter an unbiased review of the services of Dr. Marina Gafanovich. She is fairly young which looked like a disadvantage for me. Actually, unlike most grey-headed docs, she is very amiable and have an excellent sense of humor. I had a sore throat, not a big issue. I had a feeling I was a little forced into doing a complete physical, which I was reluctant to do, but gave up. While it was not the sweetest of the experiences, it proved to be effective in uncovering some not so visible conditions. Nothing serious, by chance. In all, the doctor showed superb knowledge of primary care.
