The appointment lasted 30 seconds. Dr. Ky finished sentences for me, not allowing me to explain my concerns or even accurately state what was going on before rushing out the door. I had some sensitive questions, and she left me nospace to ask them. I left feeling more confused and concerned than I was before the appointment.

doctor failed to familiarize herself with my chart and history as well as my physician's referral until appointment was almost over. her office never looked at the notes to the doctor i provided in making my zocdoc appointment. her office failedto share with her the reason for my appointment. office failed to give me specific instructions necessary for procedure requested for this appointment, therefore she refused to preform the procedure for which my appointment was made. the doctor was unprepared for my appointment. i felt she was rushed and frantically busy dealing with other patients simultaneously.

the wait and reception area was a horrible experience. but I learned that Dr. Ky isn't normally in that office. It's not an office I'd recommend to visit her. the wait time was 45 minutes even though the actual visit wasonly 15 min. Overall, good experience. they tried to fit me in as quickly as possible for my follow up.

Pros: She has gentle hands (important when treating this area), runs her clinic effectively, wants what's best for the patients and her medical team is great. Cons: She has poor bedside manners - for example, she will start the rectal examwhile you are asking her questions (it is very hard to converse while that happens). The actual time you get with her after the first time is very short (can be less than 2 minutes in and out, literally) and she'll try to end the visit as soon as she can, completely lacking any explanations. She did not present me with a treatment plan or offered any follow-up. After each treatment, I had to ask what is the next step, when should I schedule another appointment, how many more visits, and even had to come up with my own idea for an outside lab test (that unfortunately returned positive results). In terms of billing, I noticed that for one of the visits she charged me for an "office visit" on top of the actual treatment and it makes me wonder if it was because I spent two minutes updating her on my pain situation, which I thought she must know before proceeding. Though maybe I'm getting it all wrong and she actually saved me money by not charging me for an office visit the other times. Anyway, after I received conflicting information from her a few times, I went to another doctor for a second opinion, and he had very different opinions than her on two of my matters.

Dr. Ky was terrific! She speaks directly, in plain language and with humor, about parts of the body that can be hard to discuss. The exam was not at all uncomfortable. She had me lie on my side and explained everythingthat she was doing, and she had a gentle touch. I really liked her low-tech approach to my problem and am relieved that I won't need surgery. I would highly recommend her.

She was very welcoming. We just met and it felt like a close patient relationship. Her level of experience can be seen from her demeanor and style of practice. You can tell you came to a doctor that knows her stuff.Her staff down to the other patients there to see her were all beautiful. I thought I went to a Hollywood audition than a medical visit. Expert doctors can be scary but I was glad I went!

Dr. Ky is very friendly and makes it easy and comfortable to discuss medical issues. However, I waited in the patient room for 30 minutes and was seen by the Doctor for probably 1 minute (or less) when I add itall up-- I'm not exaggerating. I got minimal instruction on home treatment and I found the receptionist to be rude.

The doctor was very kind and nice but the visit was extremely short (5 minutes ) and i felt like the doctor could have taken a bit more time with me and ask me more questions and a more thorough checkof the symptoms or the issues i thought i had. Overall i didnt feel satisfied with the visit and i feel like i need to see another doctor to get a second opinion !

As someone else who's been dealing with pilonidal disease for over 20 years Dr Ky was the only one who at 2 weeks after surgery has made me feel normal. No more inflammation or having to worry about sitting or leaningagainst an elevator hand rail. I'm totally blown away with Dr Ky's professionalism, expertise, and flawless work. Please, if you're suffering you must see this Doctor.
