Ratings for Dr. Irina C. Vaizman
She dismissed my complaints of intense period pain as normal. She told me I'm "young and there is definitely nothing wrong with me" and that "many young women have painful periods". Verbatim. She did everything short of roll her eyes at me when I tried to explain that this wasn't normal. I listened to her and took painkillers every month, until I saw another gynecologist for my next pap and told her that it had become truly unbearable. I had a laparoscopy, and had Stage 4 endometriosis. I lost a fallopian tube. If there were zero stars to give I would choose that option. Who knows what stage I would have been in if she had listened to me and what percentage more of my fertility I would have. Hope it goes without saying, but her bedside manner was atrocious. Stay FAR away.
Stella K. Before I was afraid to visit gynecologist, but now with DR. IRINA VAIZMAN- MD I feel comfortable. I have been her patient for over 3 years whenever I need her help. She is a great gynecologist ,very professional and kind. Dr. Irina Vaizman is really cooperative and friendly. I can easily discuss my all the issue with her. Every appointment makes me happy. The office Manhattan Beach OB/GYN has a large space, modern equipment ,very clean. The staff is ethical and efficient. I highly recommend Dr. Irina Vaizman. You will be in good hands.
I've known Irina for quite a while about 5 years. Lovely, sweetest, intelligent, very professional, knows and feels her stuff, good bed side manners, I am an NP myself, but after my pregnancy with Irina and after the Labor, I can definitely say: " the girl knows what she is doing...." I am highly recommending her to the public. She is a sweetest heart, if I will have more kids- only with her, if not, I will not go to anybody else. She is My star!
Irina's office is absolutely unprofessional. Never go to that doctor!!!! I've scheduled an appointment for a regular check-up, got there on time and had to wait hour and a half in the waiting area. Office employees asked me several times what is the purpose of my visit right in front of other visitors, no privacy at all. I had no insurance and they asked me to pay $180 cash only. When I finally was told that the doctor was ready to see me, I was taken to the room where actually not Irina, but another person was waiting for me. That person told me that she is "the same as Irina", later it turned out she is just a doctor's assistant and doesn't have proper education nor legal permission to examine patients. She performed examination. Thus, I end up paying $180 without even having a decent consultation of a professional doctor!!!! And that's exactly what I asked for when scheduled appointment - to see Irina! I paid for it!!!!. They charge for lab tests and do not provide receipts even though I've requested. Do not go to that doctor! Worst experience ever!!!!!!!
They will never call you back with back with bad results !! I had 2 case of bad test results in less than 3 months . About 1st one I found out on my follow up visit 3 weeks later even that they had it day or two after. Second I had to call 5 times till dr. Vaizman called me back and basically rushed me to hospital. Very bad experience ', not recommending to anyone , specially pregnant .
The front desk personnel is rude. Sometimes i waited for an hour and a half to see the doctor. The doctor is friendly, but doesn't pay much attention to your problems. She tries to schedule appointments as far apart as possible. I am now 8 months pregnant, i had no vaginal exam during the last eight months, not once. Would not recommend.
I am a firm believer in professionalism and this office really lacks it. The right hand does not know what the left hand is doing. Long wait times, they forget to cancel appointments, and they did not contact me when they got my test results (I had to contact them, and they told me to come in). This is a place that treats the medical profession like a business, and every visit was incredibly stressful. Furthermore, they told me that I needed a procedure that I did not need (I got a second opinion, luckily). The doctor never took the time to sit down with me and tell me what was going on, or my options. I would not recommend by any means. You are supposed to be comfortable, and I was just the opposite during my visits. Sidenote: the doctor, herself, is nice.. but by the time that you get to her, you are just so frustrated and irked.
