I can't describe how happy I am to have Dr. Gafanovich as our family doctor. She is always so careful and precise in her treatments. I never waited for more than 10 minutes to get into exam room, which is extraordinary in my experience. She is always available after hours to extend her help if needed.

I think Dr. Gafanovich is a great internist. One reason there is an occasional wait is that if you have a problem, she will spend his time to talk you though it. She is not just processing people.
I had a new medical condition and she was very thoughtful in explaining it to me when I was really scared.
How many doctors give you their home phone and cell phone? That says it all.

I think very highly of Dr. Gafanovich who I use as my diabetes specialist. She takes the time to download data off my medical devices so she can track my progress over time. She has great advice about diet and also is very knowledgable about medications which not all doctors are. I also get appropriate reminders about when it is time to see Marina again. She is intelligent and caring. Another thing not all doctors are.

When I felt there was sth wrong with my lungs, Ive decided to visit a doctor. But I do not like the hospitals, they make me sick. So I searched on the Inet and found this lady doc. She made an examination, asked questions, then told me where to make a photo of my lungs in two minutes. Basing on all these, she assured me that nothing actually was wrong. The time passes and now I do know she was right. Great doc with a huge experience. Helped me a lot.

Dr. Gafanovich is not only a dedicated healthcare provider, as they would say, but mainly a caring individual with the passion to medicine. She is an active listener, I never feel uncomfortable telling her about my nasty issues. Besides, she is an advocate of healthy living in general, so despite the fact she might have the biggest patient team in Upper East Side, she is never overbooked, as she tries to take care of the disease before it manifests itself. Very smart and exciting approach that will keep me tuned to this physician.

I am not used to writing reviews of any kind, but this time I fell obligated to do that. I was on one of the Carnival cruises with my family, when I suddenly felt extremely bad with some very alarming symptoms. The on-board doctor immediately contacted Dr. Gafanovich to find out if she could see me on that day (it was PM already). This was a very unexpected reason to visit a physician's office in NYC, but what a fortune I was able to visit THAT doctor. She listened carefully despite it was the end of her day with a line of her regular patients waiting just outside the door. She took into consideration every small detail and prescribed medication allowing me to continue my vacation. At the end, we had a very safe trip home. I am so grateful to Dr. Marina Gafanovich! Thank you so much.

I have a permanent condition with my blood pressure. I had an emergency and called my PCP. I kept calling and was done after a receptionist told me he would be available in 3 days if I book a ""consultation"". Since there was no time for consideration I called Dr. Gafanovich who is right around the corner. I was also impressed by her stellar reviews after I did a little research on Google. Dr. Gafanovich listened to my issue and invited me to see her in...30 minutes! Yes, that's how health care reform should like - decrease waiting time and improve quality of service. I can say Dr. Marina is very energetic and enthusiastic about her job and treats her patients as her close friends. I enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere in her office. The friendly staff do nothing but help. As per my medical condition, she prescribed some preliminary treatment (that works fine already!) and I scheduled my next follow-up visit. My previous PCP did call me 3 days later offering his services....I am glad I had a nerve to get me off his patients list right on the phone.
