Ratings for Dr. Yelena A. Trakhtenberg
This is my experience, but I would NOT recommend this doctor's office. Dr. Trakhenberg is obviously knowledgeable, but she did not explain herself during the exam. She was pulling my arm over my head before I realized she was performing a mammogram! It's as simple as telling the patient what you are doing! Also, when I received the results from my papsmear the woman on the phone did not explain anything or address how the diagnosis may be upsetting. She simply said, "you call back for an exam in 6 months." I was literally holding back tears on the other end and so I said "I don't think I want to come back" she nonchalantly said, "Well, that's your choice". And the conversation ended. It was a very upsetting experience and I still feel upset weeks later. The front desk staff were disrespectful, which makes me wonder what kind of management they are under that causes them to act this way. This doctor's office needs to make some changes!! I do not want what happened to me to happen to someone else.
Dr. Trakhtenberg is excellent! She is knowledgable, attentive and friendly! I always have a pleasant experience at the office! If I have any questions or concerns, she is easily reached by phone to answer them. The staff are quick and efficient and make the office run smoothly! I am definitely happy here!
Overall I liked Dr. Trackhtenberg, although I didn't always appreciate her lack of appreciation for natural childbirth. I also think the hours and demand of her job started to wear her down since she didn't seem to love her job very much. However, I think we gained a good patient/doctor level of respect. What was disapointing is that one day I went to the office and learned she left the practice. I was not previously informed and it was very sudden. Now there is one doctor who has all the patients and probably can't handle the load. I'm wondering if anyone knows what happened to Dr. Trackhtenberg and where she went.
Awful!!! Stay away from this doctor, after waiting for over an hour met the most unprofessional doctor ever, she made inappropriate comments about my baby look while doing sonogram! Receptionist asked me if I am pregnant....really? I am almost 8 months, is it that hard to pay more attention? And them called next day to tell me that I have to pay doctor 600$ fee to deliver my baby
I had one of the best experiences ever. For the first time I had a doctor who spend time with you and not rushing. No wonder waiting time is a little longer than anticipated, but it is 100% worth it. I recommended Dr. Trakhtenberg to all my friends.
