  • I would recommend this business

I felt constant tiredness and discomfort which after a while was accompanied with back pain. I started to worry about my health condition. My husband highly recommended me to visit the internist Marina Gafanovich who, as he said, was a very good doctor. She examined me carefully and was very tactful during our conversation. And then she said that my diagnosis was a second stage of osteochondrosis. She recommended me some procedures during which my condition returned to normal. Marina Gafanovich monitored my condition carefully during all the process of my treatment and I'm very grateful for this. I think it is hard to find another internist who will be such a professional, clever and kindhearted person.

Customer Testimonials

Dr. Gafanovich is a compassionate, brillant and very pleasant professional. great experience. not like others. dr. Gafanovich came highly recommended by my entire firm and lived up to her reputation. I have since recommended her to friends. The office is very clean and professional. There is absolutely no sense of sickness or negativity amongst the other people in the waiting room and the office. Thank you Doctor.

Dr. Gafanovich is a superb doctor. When I fell seriously and somewhat mysteriously ill, she saved my life: she immediately diagnosed the illness, successfully fought with my initially recalcitrant insurance company to get a test to confirm the diagnosis, and coordinated the post-op care. In every less urgent medical task she has been an absolutely splendid physician. She explains every situation fully and clearly, and I would recommend her to anyone.

Dr.Gafanovich is the best. She is so warm and wonderful. She really takes the time to speak to her patients and is very detailed in her explanations. She makes the examination very comfortable by talking through the entire procedure and explains what she is doing. Thank you.
