This is truly the best gynecologist I have ever had. She is so nice and really seems like she cares about her patients. She delivered my second daughter and I went through PPD and she really helped me through it. Even calling me once a week to see how I was doing. She told me I would get through it and I did. She is truly a wonderful doctor!

After my visit the doctor said was going to call me to go over my test results. 2 days later I received my test results online, which were not good, I was waiting anxious for that phone call and that didn't happen. 2 days later I had to reach out and call back the clinic to connect with the doctor and get the medication needed. For someone who needs medication and explanation that is a long wait.

Dr. Delfinado was very warm and welcoming as I had not seen her before but another physician in this group who moved out of state. A gyne exam can be very intimidating and embarrassing but she was extremely professional and made me feel comfortable with any questions I had asked. This was a routine yearly exam and it was not for anything acute.

Dr. Delfinado is the best OBGYN at Irving and Western in my opinion. Not that I had a bad experience with others, I probably feel this way because as a new mom I saw her a couple more times than the others and she did deliver my baby- which she made my experience comfortable, easy and relaxing.

Reviewed on October 21, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Delfinado was amazing and I am grateful to be one of her patients. I did have to wait 7 or 8 weeks to get in for a routine exam, and the wait time was long the day of my appointment (longer than 15 minutes after my appointment time), but my visit actually with her was wonderful and could not have gone better. This was my first visit as her patient and I am looking forward to returning but hope both types of waits are shorter in the future.

Reviewed on October 21, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Leah Delfinado has been my doctor for years, and her and her partner's care during and after a very challenging emergency surgery was unassailable. She's an incredible doctor, both in the quality of care she provides and her incredible patience and genuine concern for her patients.

Reviewed on October 19, 2018 7:00 PM

every doctor I see through advocate is beyond 20 mins late. I get that the clinic needs to make money and so they over schedule the doctors, but I now have new health insurance and I'm going to find new doctors outside of advocate. in addition, I never feel like Dr. Delfinado cares about my health. I feel like she's rushed and not really listening and one my health issues needs her attention. If I was completely healthy, I wouldn't be as bothered because it's just a routine visit, but for this issue, I need her attention and to feel like she has read, understands, and cares about my health history.

Reviewed on October 19, 2018 7:00 PM

she's amazing love her and her staff but reception had attitude and did not want to schedule my next appointments so I'm almost 8 months pregnant and have no prenatal visits set up due to the attitude I received not only was receptionist on her cell phone but rolled her eyes when I walked up. don't want to deal with her any more. but the doctor such a sweet lady caring and always ready to listen and suggest whatever I needed.

Dr Delfinado is great, but scheduling with her office is a nightmare. It took something like a month and a half to get to see her for a routine check up. Afterwards, I wanted a follow-up procedure and was told I wouldn't be able to see her until January. If I wanted a procedure done sooner, I would have had to go to a different doctor at a different office (and still would have had to wait over a month.) Finally, the clerks / receptionists scheduling these follow-ups were SUPER rude and unhelpful. So the doctor herself and her nurses/techs are good, but the scheduling is terrible.

I have seen Dr. Delfinado for a couple of years, and she is kind, thorough, and attentive.
