Wait time

Wait time is almost always non-existent (I guess this may depend on the time but I typically go between 11am and noon). Super nice and warm doctor who’s always willing to answer any questions/concerns.

I have been a patient of Dr. Betancourt

I have been a patient of Dr. Betancourt since 1991. I love her practice, everything about is what you expect when you go to a doctor’s office. The staff is on point.

Dr. Betancourt was very nice

Dr. Betancourt was very nice and she walked me through the procedure. I did read one review where you have to walk out to the hallway to use to go to the bathroom for a urine sample, but it wasn’t that bad. I was nervous because it was my first but I felt comfortable afterwards.

I really liked Dr. Betancourt.

I really liked Dr. Betancourt. She was very nice and compassionate. I felt completely comfortable and at ease discussing all things obgyn related. Like a smart favorite aunt that you trust to give good advice. I will definitely go back and recommend her to any woman (like myself) who is in need of a regular obgyn.


Excellent. I originally tried to book a doctor closer to me but their office made the whole appt process so dramatic; I cancelled and booked my appt with Sachedina. Smooth sailing, no multiple phone calls for information, no extra paper work, they used all my zocdoc info. Exactly what a doctors appt should be about my health not about forms.

Dr. Betancourt is great!

Dr. Betancourt is great! Listens to all of your concerns and takes her time during the appointment. Office management is great as well, barely any wait time. Highly recommend.
