    Comment:  I love my doctor - Dr. Dobrenis. She's great all around (I can share so many stories and can go on and on but I'll just say.. she's the best!). There are 4 OBGYNs in her group - so one of the 4 will deliver your baby (vs. one of 10 at some other practices, which I liked). Dr. Hockstein (same office) is also equally amazing. I have about 5 other friends who had either Dobrenis or Hockstein, and they all love them.I also really liked the facility / experience at the NYP (upper east). I believe there will be a brand new building soon? I recall my doctor telling me that I can deliver my second baby (if there will be any) in the beautiful brand new building. :)I was initially quite concerned that the doctor's office / hospital is too far, but in the end, I went with the practice because of the doctor and the hospital. I'm happy with my choice and would like to highly recommend.

    Comment:  I LOVED Dr. Dobrenis at Weill Cornell UES. The other docs in the practice are great too and so I felt fine about fact that she wasn't on call when I delivered. Hospital was great too and NICU was terrific which is important if you should need it.

    Comment:  Review: Dr. Dobrenis was our doctor, coach, cheerleader and friend throughout my pregnancy. I knew I wanted to give birth in a hospital with a doctor, but I did not want a doctor who was too quick to medicate or force unnecessary procedures. Dr. Dobrenis is pragmatic and practical. She is down-to-earth and personable. Most of all she is lighthearted and funny - she really put us to ease throughout the process, but never trivialized our questions or issues. I genuinely like her as a person, and I trusted her. I would work with her again in a heartbeat. Can't say enough positive things about her and her entire staff.Member notes about insurance: Dr. Dobrenis takes Blue Cross/Blue Shield, and the claim process has been smooth for me...even when I switched jobs/insurance in the middle of my pregnancy.Based on a February 2016 birthing experience

    Comment:  Member Review: Dr. Dobrenis is brilliant, talented and kind. I had a tough experience with the delivery of my first child -- it was an emergency c-section after 16 hours of labor and a Doctor who got frustrated at the time that it was taking (it was Mother's Day and her Mom was waiting to go to lunch and she made sure to tell me all about it). Needless to say I had been casual about my OBGYN and realized for baby #2 that is actually matters. I searched for a kind and competent Dr and all roads (and referrals) kept leading to Dr. Dobrenis who is a leader in VBACs. She made it all easy and helped ease all my concerns. She made my 2nd pregnancy worry free. Insurance details: I THINK she only takes Blue Cross Blue Shield. Review based on birth of 2014 baby
