I have been going to Dr. Sivkin for the last year. Hoping that things would get better. Every time I go she tells me she doesn't believe anything I say that's going on with me and that she really can't do anything about the fibroids and polyps she found in my uterus because my state ins. Does not pay her but a dollar to do things and she is worth more than that and won't do anything about pain and bleeding I am having due to the fibroids and polyps because she doesn't get paid enough. I also had been complaining about numbness and no feeling or sexual want at all after a c section as well as yeast infections. She keeps telling me it's all in my head. My husband. And with me to an appointment to hear the same things. He tried to tell her all the things going on with me and she said it doesn't matter what he says and she doesn't believe him either. This last appointment she finally agreed to do a biopsy of my cervix and uterus. I got an appointment the next week. The next day they called me saying they had to change it to 2 months later and there was no room for me. They will only give me an appointment 1-3 months out due to having state ins. And they do tell me that everytime. she is rude, pushy, and in inconsiderate about your feelings. She does not care and is only in practice for the money.
These reviews are right about this office and Dr. Sivkin, plus her receptionist Amanda. I do not recommend this office.
I see another dr in this practice who I like very much. However due to me being pregnant they told me I would have to rotate drs. I heard awful things about Dr sivkin but decided to give her a chance. Everyone was right. She's extremely rude. She has no bedside manner whatsoever. She made a rude comment about me having state insurance. Everytime i spoke she just spoke over me. I got no good vibe from her whatsoever and felt awful when I left. I can't imagine why anyone would choose to see her. I am currently searching for a new dr office just so I never have to see her again during my pregnancy.
This was the last time I'll see Dr. Sivkin. I felt very uncomfortable with her disregard to the importance of bed side manner, kindness, and sincerity. My appointment felt rushed and hasty, after a long wait period, then she told me I have to make another appointment simply to hear my lab results. Would she be willing to cover my co-pay?! I'm seeking another doctor.
I called the office during my pregnancy when a couple days went by and I stopped feeling my baby's movement. They brought me in for an ultra sound that lasted 1 minute, and billed my insurance! Dr Sivkin was making me feel very uncomfortable and I switched OB's. Thank God, because Dr Sivkin never spotted the problems in my uterus and I didn't go to term. Her office didn't handle things seriously! If I had stayed with her, I don't know what would have happened with my baby! Thank God my new office caught everything and have a healthy little girl!
Dr. Sivkin, horrible doctor, horrible person, horrible place. No heart, no politeness, no bed side manner. She made me feel so poorly with her coldness.
I tried Dr. Sivkin and saw her for a few appointments. I was grossed out how she was in running clothes and she smelled of fresh perspiration! She also hurried through the visits. Professionally and personally I was not impressed and I'm going to try another doctor.
Will NEVER go back to Miriam Sivkin!
Horrible. I would never go see her again even if she were the last person left on earth!!!! OBGYN Milford CT on New Haven Ave has much nicer doctors.
Dr Sivkin sucked !!! I'd rather die then see her again. Going to new office.
Absolutely love her! She knows what she's doing, very skilled and concerned when needs to be. When you get to know her as your physician she's well worth it and I wouldn't choose anyone else.
Dr. Sivkin is flightly, talks so fast, doesn't finish sentences, wouldn't give me simple results over the phone, made me go back in and pay more co-pays. Her bedside manner sucks!! She got rid of all her courteous staff who always helped me out! She has a man, I think her husband, working as the new billing department! I don't want to speak to him about my personal health!!!!!! Strange place!!!
After waiting over 30 minutes the last 2 times I saw her, she was too rushed to listen to my concerns. She doesn't really seem to care about me, so I also finally went to another office and I'm glad I did. Her staff could also use some lessons on courtesy.
I have been going to Dr. Sivkin for 6 years and I think she is great. She answers all my questions and cares about my well-being. The staff is friendly and caring as well.
She doesn't take the time to listen to my questions and she certainly doesn't explain what she is treating. I'm glad I now go to another doctor.
I came to Dr. Sivkin's office when I was pregnant and I had no insurance. The staff was really nice and helped me get insurance with the state. Wow, everything was paid for! Dr. Sivkin and her partner were really nice and answered all my questions. I had my baby at Yale and it was great! I would definetely recommend Dr. Sivkin.
Had a recent appointment with Dr Sivkin. She was very nice and answered all of my questions. The staff was also extremely helpful and welcoming. I will definitely be coming back!
Dr Sivkin made me come back for simple results and I had to pay another copay. Don't most doctors call patients with results?! I had to take more time off work, pay a copay, waiste time waiting to be seen, and then finally hear my results. These people have waisted my time more often than not!!
I will never go back! I found nicer, more professional doctors right up the road! Every time I went back I was seen by a new doctor to the office. No doctors seem to stay! The main doctor is crabby and rude and discussed things with me out in the open in front of other patients! The latest assistant has a big attitude like she was Miss All That and annoyed when I didn't understand! All the staff was always very nice, but the doctors yell at the staff in front of patients! I've had enough there!
I have been frustrated too many times by this office. It's time for me to change to another doctor.
terrible doctor look elsewhere if you want good medical care she has very little time for patients
Suprised the office did not seem cleaner. Exam room had stuff all over the counters, torn papers and dirty floors. TRAsh was over flowing. Guess another Dr left there again -- lots of Drs. seem to leave there. The Dr did not talk to me privatly.
This MD seemed to be ALL over the place. Spent about 5 minutes talking with me .... she talked about other patients and hiring a new staff person. The office seemed VERY out of date -- needed some attention to the bathroom and wiaitng room. THe furniture was dirty. Dont think I will go back
