Ratings for Dr. Yelena A. Trakhtenberg
She is an extremely unprofessional doctor. My mom went to her at 14 weeks for a check up and she made her cry!!!! My mom is 45 and this would be her fourth child. The doctor told her that she will not take her and she should not be having children. I am not exaggerating one bit guys. I promise you guys that with this kind of attitude, you will have a good experience until you reach a point where your visits are more than check ups. I was pressured to get an IUD here. The cost is 800 and I couldn't afford it. The doctor tried to sell it to me by discounting the price and when I still said I can't afford it, they asked me what my boyfriend does for a living and why I wouldn't ask him. PLEASE guys. Beware.
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.
