Everyone here is very nice. My only suggestion would be to have a clean simple way to display range rules.

So Long and Thanks for All the BS 4/16/2009

I have been a patient of Dr. Fishers for about four years and I have now switched to a NEW DOCTOR. Pros: Convient local Cons: rude staff, know it all doctors who don't know anything. more

Terrible, upsetting place 3/12/2009

This place is an incredibly depressing place to be a pregnant woman. Expect to wait at least an hour in a crowded reception room with no water while the reception staff treat you like you're something subhuman, and yell out to you across the room. Unless they are ignoring you and gossiping in a group. Pros: Location, some nice nurses Cons: Wait time, hygiene, reception staff, bedside manner, tests more

Competence is what counts 2/24/2009

Dr. Fischer has been my gyn for a number of years. She's a solid, conscientious, capable doctor. Pros: Prompt and capable doctoring Cons: The practice feels a bit hard-edged more

Stay away 2/9/2009

Dr. Archibald is cold, rude and judgmental. Based on other reviews, it looks like she's not an exception. more

AS IF IT COULD NOT GET WORSE 2/2/2009

I HAVE BEEN GOING TO MURRAY HILL OBGYN FOR ABOUT 5-6 YEARS WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN TODAY I GO TO THE WEBSITE TO LOOK SOMETHING UP AND DISCOVER THAT THE PRACTICE IS NO LONGER THERE. THE DOCTORS, OR PARTNERS AS THEY PUT IT, SEPERATED INTO TWO DIFFERENT PRACTICES. I NEVER RECEIVED A NOTICE, PHONE CALL, NOTHING. AND THEY DIDNT SEEM TOO UNDERSTANDING WHEN I CALLED LOOKING TO HAVE MY RECORDS SENT TO ME. THIS PLACE HAS BEEN A DISASTER SINCE I STARTED GOING AND NEVER REALLY GOT BETTER. LADIES, IF YOU NEED A DOCTOR, LOOK ELSEWHERE BECAUSE THIS PRACTICE IS A LIABILITY WAITING TO HAPPEN. more

SHAMEFUL. HORRIBLE PLACE. 1/8/2009

Giving this ""medical office"" one star is being generous. I went to Dr. Quinn a few years back (i see now that she's really a nurse that fills in for doctors) when I first moved to NY. My last visit with her I was in tears in her exam room, and she basically said I had to stop the nonesense b/c I was taking up valuable time from other patients. She should not be allowed to practice medicine in my opinion. The office is cold, the staff is rude and the wait before appointments is appalling. They should be ashamed of themselves of the fact that they consider themselves doctors. I don't have much experience of other doctors in this office, but if they are anything like Dr. Quinn... RUN! Pros: LOCATION Cons: EVERYTHING ELSE. more

DO NOT GO HERE, SOME OF THEIR DOCTORS HAVE TO GO, THEY ARE BRINGING THIS PLACE DOWN 1/5/2009

THESE DOCTORS NEED TO GET IT TOGETHER OR THEY WILL HAVE NO PATIENTS LEFT!!! more

Extremely mixed experience 10/29/2008

I am very, very grateful to Murray Hill OB/GYN for two healthy children, notwithstanding complications at birth. The second was delivered by Dr. Rosenberg and I thank her. I found her caring and attentive and I appreciated the fact that she worked with my doula. Also, I always got my questions answered without a problem. more

dont get fooled by the -ve comments 10/3/2008

I had my baby delivered from DR. Rossenburg, so i need not say how frequent i have visited the place. It is thanks to Dr. Rosenburg, her experience and ""patience"" that I had a normal delivery and not a C section. more

Avoid Avoid Avoid...you'll thank me!! 9/17/2008

The doctors have no bedside manners or patience. They do not like to answer any questions or address any concerns whatsoever. I've tried all the doctors and Dr. Fischer is a robot, hates being bothered and is very cold. If you're used to that, then she would be perfect for you! more

skip it 9/15/2008

Just about every experience I had there was unpleasant - the NP (Catherine Quinn) didn't listen, was rude, and seemed judgmental, hard to get anyone on the phone and when I did the medical advice was strange (suggested I was pregnant when I complained of slight nausea and a severe sore throat after getting the third Guardasil shot and when I asked if it could be a possible side effect of the shot, was dismissed with ""side effects only happen to a very small number of people""). Also twice saw a staff member belittle the front desk staff in front of an entire waiting room - definitely gave the place a bad vibe. Everyone seemed unhappy. In early August, they split into two practices-Kips Bay Gynecology and Cityscape OB/GYN-but the location and most of the staff seems to be the same. Plus, I got the letter informing me of the split three weeks after the fact. Maybe the problems have been worked out, but I'm not going to risk it. Cons: rude, unprofessional, and unpleasant more

Give them a break! 8/12/2008

I have been with many different doctors in this practice over the years, and keep coming back mainly because I can usually get an appointment without waiting for three months. It can be a bit chaotic there, but it's not as bad as a lot of the reviews on this site. I had one not-so-pleasant experience but I realize the doctor was just trying to get a job done. Several years ago my company changed insurance plans to one not accepted at Murray Hill. I started seeing a new doctor at a major (highly rated NYC) hospital and it was far, far, worse. Although he came highly recommended, the waiting room was complete chaos, ran hours behind schedule, and he spent the absolute minimum amount of time with me. Fortunately my insurance changed again and I was able to return to Murray Hill ObGyn. I was most recently with Dr. Fischer and found her to be very professional but down to earth, and felt quite comfortable with the level of care provided. Murray Hill ObGyn recently split their practices into two separate business names but they are apparently still operating in the same offices. During the first week of the formal separation of business names, Dr. Fischer personally called me about a routine prescription that I needed. I was expecting to hear back from a staff member, and was very relieved that I wasn't falling through the cracks. I just felt that I really should come to her defense. Give them a break! Dr. Fischer is now at Kips Bay ObGyn. Pros: Very convenient Cons: phone and office staff uneven more

Find another OBGYN office 7/31/2008

I went to Murray Hill OBGYN so they can check if they accept my insurance. They said they do, and scheduled an appointment with Dr Gronau. Cons: Nurse Pract. exams, not doctor, freezing waiting room, long wait time... more

HORRIBLE, TERRIBLE, RUDE, AWFUL, RIP-OFF, SORRY EXCUSE FOR ""MEDICAL CARE"" 7/25/2008

Incredibly rude reception staff, rude/abrupt doctors who take no time to explain anything or give information, NO SOAP in the high traffic restroom where they make you urinate in a cup, doctors are not gentle or caring at all, you will be charged a HUNDRED DOLLAR cancellation fee if you have the audacity to have a work emergency, if you try to call them to ask about ANYTHING - your medical care, the fees you've been charged, the terrible treatment you've received, etc - you will undoubtedly be greeted with a long wait on hold, incredibly rude staff, including the office ""director"" Barbara Lee (you'd think the practice's director would have some people skills and/or management skills, but such is not the case - i was treated incredibly rudely by the reception staff, Dr. Quinn, the reception supervisor Tricia and Barbara Lee) - one of their doctors has an $11 million judgment for medical negligence against her, etc. Pros: nothing Cons: everything more

They won't harm you but they will nickel & dime you 7/18/2008

I had been going here for about 3 yrs from a recommendation from friends. We have all left one by one. Dr. Fischer was my provider she was capable but not pleasant. I was not looking for a friend so I did not mind. But her coupled with being nickel & dimed drove me away. There is a policy no credit cards under $25 ? guess what most insured people?s co-pays is? $20. But amazing to get my medical records released they will accept my $10 on Visa. It just fires me up because I had several procedures there so in some way I was a cash cow for them and they use and EMR and refuse email it. For me it not the money it is the principal. Medically I believe they are capable but for service, cost and general office attitude it is pretty awful. I switched to Spring Street OB GYN ? so far so GREAT! more

DO NOT ignore the bad reviews on this site 6/26/2008

I cannot imagine receiving worse service. I called the dr's office three days ago complaining of minor pain. In the three days it took them to ignore my phone calls my pain turned into severe pain and I spent all of yesterday doubled over in pain crying, including last night after I went into the office for a test that showed positive for a problem they were too lazy to call in a prescription for. I am sure that if you have a friend who is in with the dr. you might get treated like a decent human being, but I am shocked by how horrible and thoughtless this office is. There is no reason my condition should have gotten to this point. more

A very frustrating experience 6/10/2008

I live a block away from this office and after reading all the reviews I decided to go ahead and give it a try. DON'T DO IT. The office is absolutely maddening and although Tiffany was great she is not worth the suffering you have to endure just to see her. Nobody in the office is nice. It is a machine that just wants your money. Even calling back for results is frustrating. I was also surprised that they want you to write out your credit card information on a form so they can keep it in your file. When I refused, they charged me more and said they would refund my card when the insurance was processed. I'm still trying to get my test results and refund. Whatever happened to customer service? I wanted it to work out because it is so convenient. Too bad. Pros: Tiffany was very nice Cons: To get to Tiffany you have to deal with the office staff more

great place 4/17/2008

I recently moved to New York City and needed a gynecologist pretty fast for a prescritopn I was about to run out of. I called several offices that couldn't see me for weeks and when I called Murray hill ob/gyn and they gave me an appointment the same day. I saw a nurse pracitioner (i can't remember her name) but she was really nice. She even offered to do my complete exam even though my appointment was just for a prescription. She then made sure I had names and numbers of general doctors to pick from as I am new to the city. I think this place was very thorough and I'm glad I found it. more

Ignore the negative reviews 4/16/2008

I am shocked by the reviews on this site. I was sent to this practice by a friend and the day before my appointment I looked up the reviews on the practice and got very nervous but my friend assured me it was a great practice. I am glad I trusted my friend because my experience was nothing like all these negative reviews. From the second I arrived the staff was friendly and helpful. I only waited for 20 minutes to see the nurse practitioner (I always see nurse practitioners, in my experience they spend more time with you) Kate and she was so nice. She was genuinely concerned about my health and spent 30 minutes talking with me about my issues. Her exam was the least painful I have ever had and I felt really listened too. Most of these reviews are about a Dr. Fischer which I cannot comment on but my visit with Kate was very pleasant and I have recommended her to all my friends. Pros: location, Kate, friendly staff Cons: cold exam rooms more
