I have been going to Dr. Komarynsky for over 10 years, ever since my former OB/GYN stopped child birth and moved. Frankly, it was the best thing that happened because being under Dr. Komarynsky was a great experience. Her staff is very on time, detailed and understanding. Irene spends a lot of time with me during my annual exams and answers all my questions. She delivered my kids with no complications and her post care was great. I would and have recommend her to to friends, come to find many of them already go to her! I saw the poor review of her and just HAD to let people know, that while I feel bad for that women, it must have been a fluke as well as other factors we do not know about because I and my friends have had nothing but excellent care and experience.

One of the worst doctor experiences I have ever had -- the experience still haunts me 11 years after the birth of my son. She discharged me from the hospital with a raging infected episiotomy and then would only see me five days later when I sat in her office and refused to leave her office until she saw me. During the birth, she was impatient, difficult and dismissive of my questions and left me a bloody mess. I will never forget her horrible care -- one of my biggest regrets is not suing her.

Great Doctor! Think the negative reviews are just whiny.
Wouldn't trade her for anyone else. Wife had the best.

Dr Komarynsky has been my GYN for almosty 25 years, almost since my first GYN appt as a 20 yr old! and, despite having moved out of CT years ago, i have kept her as my GYN and willingly drive almost 2 hrs for an appt with her b/c she is so good. she is incredibly friendly, empathetic, knowledgeable, and well read about women's health. like one of the other reviewers, she tipped the Vitamin D subject to me years ago, way b/f any other drs started publicizing it, and well before i started seeing it in the news. Dr K also recommended a terrific breast surgeon for me years ago when i had a small cyst. to this day, Dr K spends an inordinate amount of time with me, just to find out how things are, even outside of the gynecological realm. what most drs USED to do.
i cannot speak to the OB side of her practice, and yes, i usually have to wait up to 40 mins after my scheduled appt to see her, but it is always worth the wait, at least for me, and especially given it is my GYN, since i feel strongly about having a dr with whom i am comfortable. so scheduling probably could be a bit better, but then again, and perhaps especially for OB/GYNs, it is not that easy to keep a dr's office running to the minute....
i would STRONGLY recommend DR K to any family member or friend, whether as an OB or as a GYN. she is simply TERRIFIC!

I think the world of Dr. Komarynsky. She guided me through a high risk pregnancy and delivered my son who is now 14. I look forward to my annual visits each year, and feel so appreciative to have Dr. Komarynsky caring for me.

Normal people do not wait for 2 hours for an appointment and they expect to see a DOCTOR if they are so willing to wait. I too am a professional with a doctorate.....two visits and I was OUT! Yes, she is nice and professional........if you see her. Good luck! You won't.
When I go to the doctor, I want to see the doctor~
Sorry!

She is a great Dr. I am having my second baby with her and she is always been professional and caring. She is to the point as she is busy, but I enjoy it that way because I am a busy professional as well. I usually go to my appoinments in lunch time and never wait more than 10 min. I keep myself informed and don't need a mother but a Dr that knows what they are doing. Its true you love her or you dont. If you are needy and plan to be late 2 hours and still be seen then find a different Dr. But she is very professional, caring, and knows her stuff. She is great to talk to in a personal level also. However she is an OBGYN not a shrink.

DR K will be out next 2 weeks to fight a lawsuit. she is overscheduled/ overworked and often makes poor decisions based on it and puts her patients at risk. If a lawsiute went to trial there was enough evidence to show she did not follow standard of care.

Actually - there are more than 2 lawsuits......the court removes information after a period of time. One she won, one settled for an above average payout (see CT department of Public Health) and one is in progress - all from the same time period.

Dr. K has been my doctor for easily a decade. I think she's been an excellent doctor, personally and professionally. Long before the standard media was talking about Vitamin D, she'd told me about the upcoming studies and information. Since then of course everyone now knows. I've never had a baby, so I can't talk about that. The negatives comments here concerned me so I looked up any law suits. There are 2. One in 2004 which she (defendant) won. And there is one in progress which appears to have being going on for a few years. Don't confuse that with a bunch of lawsuits though- read it - it's just one plaintiff. I get cancellations or late appts too, but my feeling is that OBGYNs probably deliver babies unscheduled most of the time. I'd rather my doctor cancel on me to go deliver the baby she promised another patient she'd deliver. I'd be interested to know feedback from women who have had her deliver their babies. That seems to be missing in these comments. I give her thumbs up. The only reason 4 stars not 5 is because I can't rate on a lot of the reasons people see obgyns, i've never been pregnant or had a baby.

She has been my Dr. for 8 years and I think she is great. For those who are concerned about "emergencies" leading to appointments being cancelled, that is the nature of the medical profession. Babies do not call before they come. Plus, as fewer and fewer doctors deliver babies (insurance costs) the number of emergencies grows for doctors, especially those who are willing to work with difficult pregnancies. As to scheduling, get mad at the office staff, not the Dr.

Dr. Komarynsky became my doctor when my former doctor would not honor my insurance; their office has been professional, polite and courteous with every appointment. I was also in the delivery room when my daughter had here children, I only wish I could give Dr. Komarynsky a higher recommendation than a five star for her caring, gentleness, compassion and professionalism. I am sure if Dr. Komarynsky had an emergency, she was delivering a baby; babies are not on an appointment schedule.

I was relocating from out of town a month before my due date and had arranged for Dr. K to be my OB/GYN (referred to me by one of my friends). I had never met Dr. K and I met only once with her PA. When I arrived for my appointment (which took me 1 1/2 hours to get to because I got stuck in traffic) I learned that my appointment was cancelled due to one of these "emergencies". I was furious! I had read these reviews before I arrived in the area and I should have listened to the warnings. As soon as I got home from that cancelled appointment, I started calling around to find a new doctor. Luckily I was able to find someone else (since I was so far along in my pregnancy doctors were leery about taking me on) as I was not going to let Dr. K deliver my baby (I would have rather gone to my local ER)! What a difference with the new doctors office....friendly, incredibly efficient....I was even able to meet with the doctor!!! MOst importantly, I was able to have my baby with a doctor that I was confident in! If I were you...I wouldn't bother. As someone else said...you shouldn't have to settle for substandard care in Fairfield County! There are many great doctors out there!

Dr. Komarynsky has been my Gyn for many years. Loved her from the moment I met her. Very compassionate, warm and caring. Explains things in detail at your level. Takes her time with you. I have also been seen by her PA when she hasn't been available for routine matters and I feel the same way about her. Both have a great bedside manner. Takes the time you need without making you feel rushed. The office staff is always friendly and caring. Most my appointments are in the evening so my wait time is usually short.

Although Dr. Komarynsky has been my dr. for a few years prior to getting pregnant, I think I only saw her once. All other appts I was referred to the PA b/c I either didn't book the appt a year in advance or Dr. K "had an emergency". Now that I'm pregnant I thought this would change. My first appt was with the PA. No big deal since I knew I wouldnt see Dr. K. I suppose this is routine at this office for your first prenatal. I did have to wait 2 hours though...another emergency. My 3 month appt was supposed to be tomorrow and I got a call this morning saying Dr. K will not be in the office and to reschedule. That I feel is uncalled for.I guess they don't treat pregnant patients any differently. I didnt have good feelings about this office and told my husband if anything happens with our next appt were switching Dr. and sure enough, something happened and I stuck to my word. I just made an appt with another dr. in town.

When I first started seeing Dr. K. as a patient, I was so impressed with her professionalism, her knowledge, her genuine concern and care of her patients. This is no longer the case and her patients suffer. Dr. K. is overbooked and continues to take new patients. She lacks the professionalism and integrity that were once her claim to fame. Patients are forced to see PA's and a simple phone call is never returned by the doctor herself. Further more, there are errors in patient records and the information shared is often lost in translation. In my opinion, she has become a lawsuit waiting to happen! Add the fact that appointments are routinely cancelled and rescheduling can take months to execute if you want to see the "real doctor," wait time is rediculously long, and she gets angry with patients if her care is questioned, I would recommend going elsewhere. One doesn't need to settle for medical care in Fairfield County Connecticut!

By the way, I "loved her " too until I truly needed her and would have died had I listened to her. Further more, "check out" explains a lot. All of those cancellations are due to the court appearances and lawyer appointments. She told me years ago she could not go on much longer, I guess the proof is in the pudding.

hands down the worst bedside manner and lack of professional conduct by a doctor. I would only recommend this dr. if you have your heart set on having a c-section (major surgery) - since in her care, you need to qualify for natural delivery. It is so sad that insurance billing drives the care administered by this doctor - of course she can collect much more from a c-section than an old-fashioned natural delivery. She might just not have the time to devote in the delivery room, and might consider hiring additional associates. While in her care, several errors were made on my medical records. do yourself a favor, skip this one and go to a real doctor.

Dr. Komarynsky's bedside manner and warm personality lured me into a false sense of security and trust. I found that when she was confronted of questioned, she became hostile and arrogant - her pride got in the way of my healthcare and almost cost me my life! Add rediculously long wait time (sometimes closer to 2 hours!) and the overuse of her PA's to provide primary care, Dr. Komarynsky is running a factory rather than a practice. Delivering over 250 babies per year as a solo practioner, she gets little sleep and easily overwhelmed when things don't seem as they appear.

PROS: good bedside manner, smart, devoted, kind, warm
CONS: Overbooked, long wait time, easily frustrated, unprofessional,

Dr Komarynsky is the best around. I found her through the physician referral service at Stamford hospital. I was 39 and trying to get pregnant. I had been trying for many months and didn't want to just keep going on and on. She was extremely thorough and started testing my husband and I. I was pregnant in 3 months and had a great pregnancy and birth. She is like talking to one of your girlfriends and her staff is the same way. What a lucky find!
