Description

Dr. Marina Gafanovich is a board-certified internal medicine physician that is affiliated with New York Presbyterian (NYP) and the Weill Cornell Medical Center in Manhattan. She received her medical degree from the world renowned Sackler School of Medicine in 2002 and has a thriving practice in Manhattan's Upper East Side. Dr. Gafanovich’s practice takes a humanist approach to medicine. She does not believe in treating diseases, she believes in treating people. Dr. Gafanovich spends a great deal of time with each and every patient to assess outside influence to medical issues, the patient’s lifestyle, their beliefs, and works to outline a treatment plan that does more than address the symptoms, but works at the core of the problem to address overall health and wellness. Dr. Gafanovich believes that doctors and patients are partners in the journey to wellness. You will always be treated as an individual when you walk through her doors, not just a number. She promises you prompt and courteous service. You will never wait more than 15 minutes before being shown to an exam room. http://www.abms.org http://www.apta.org/AM/Template.cfm?Section=ABPTS&Template=/aptaapps/speccertdirectory/selectccsform.cfm ...

Dr. Gafanovich took my vitals and asked me to undergo physical test which was done mostly by her medical associate. Both ladies were really knowledgeable, and I felt comfortable doing what they asked for. I asked to be called with my lab tests, and one of the office staff did that in a matter of days. i had to come for a short follow-up, which was not a big deal.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I had to go to India on a business trip, and I was looking for a travel vaccination center to avoid any health issues. I found Dr. Gafanovich online, and I was quite impressed by her credentials. The staff was quite polite in setting my appointment, but also requested to undergo a complete physical exam - which I agreed to.
