How was your experience with the doctor?Great doctor. The one star is for the receptionists, who are incredibly unhelpful and rude (even for NYC standards)! I thought I had finally found my go-to OBGYN, but unfortunately Dr Wells’s incompetent and cold staff is a deal breaker for me.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr Wells met with me this morning and spent a long time explaining in detail a health issue that was discovered. Even though the problem is not a very major one, she took her time and was very thorough in her overview so I understood how to proceed. I might add that I met with my general practitioner about this very issue yesterday (not GYN related, but rather age-related) and though I consider her to be an excellent doctor (and I am very picky), Doctor Wells was so much more helpful! And I pretty much never write reviews, but this merits one, for sure. Thank you, Dr. Wells!

She has a great bedside manner, is easy to talk to, made me feel at ease and made me feel important. I will be going back for another appointment. But warning, the wait time was crazy!

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr Valerie Wells is an exceptional Doctor. Having avoided the gynecologist for some time, she was exactly what I was looking for-thorough, informative and made me feel super comfortable. I waited about 30 minutes which to me is expected in NYC. She sat me down at my first visit to really get to know me as well as my medical history. I would highly recommend her.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Wells is such a wonderful doctor. I returned to her after my work insurance became in network again! I never feel rushed with her and she creates a plan that works with you. Only downside to the office is the wait time, which took me over an hour to see her, but it was worth it to go to a doctor I trust!

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Wells was incredibly warm and personable. It looked like she was having a busy day but her attention was undivided and she was gracious with her time to answer all my questions about getting an IUD. I was able to get the procedure in the same visit. It was only a couple minutes and she guided me through every step of the process. The was also whole staff was pleasant and attentive.

How was your experience with the doctor?Although the wait time was half an hour, as soon as I met Valerie I immediately liked her and this is coming from someone that's noticed how a lot of healthcare professionals don't come off as sincerely caring about the well-being of patients. After I confided in her about the things I wanted to have checked, she carefully explained the steps and tests that would be good to have done. She also answered several of my questions thoughtfully and thoroughly. She's favorite doctor of all time for being super nice, sincere, and caring! Her medical biller, Tara, is also incredible! She answered my questions about the whole billing process, turnaround time for results, comprehensively. She and Dr. Wells really seem to be passionate about what they do as it showed! It was a very encouraging visit especially for someone that's considering but horrified about the whole pregnancy process.
