Verified Patient Reviews
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 everything that 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.
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 exam while 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.
She's quick which I appreciate! Willing to answer any questions if needed. Super friendly and just want you to be comfortable.
She’s the best
She was terrific. Her staff very professional as well as warm.
Professional, fast, advanced equipment. ???????????
Very professional, knowledgeable and thorough.
Dr. Ky was respectful, gentle, and very efficient. I liked everything about her and felt very confident in her skills and knowledge.
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 good. She is thorough and no-nonsense kind of lady. She fixed my problem where many doctors failed. Her office is clean and the staff is very friendly. I highly recommend her to anyone.
Great. She is always conforting and professional.
She is always on point and very nice.
Was terrific, profesional and healthfull, excellen
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 it all up-- I'm not exaggerating. I got minimal instruction on home treatment and I found the receptionist to be rude.
Dr. Ky was really amazing. she made me feel comfortable and she was very knowledgeable
Love this doctor. She's a no-nonsense doctor.
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 check of 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 leaning against 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.
Very personable.. yet Very no-nonsense. She doesn't sugar-coat anything. Personally, I liked that. Immediate information and options, from which to make a decision.
Dr. Ky was fantastic. She understood right away why I had come in, and immediately made me feel comfortable. She was succinct and quick, but not so much that she didn't take the time to answer questions thoroughly. Her staff was nice, polite and very helpful.
Dr. Ky is so personable and makes you feel comfortable talking about your ailments. She makes sure you understand the issue, treatment and addresses any additional concerns.
Good, it's easy to speak to her frankly and she will give you a real response. Let's you know the options and makes you feel at ease.
I thought Dr. Ky was great but I found her office staff unhelpful, short and to be poor communicators. It felt like they didn't understand her practice enough to help and they kept pushing me off to other people for answers. I was very concerned before the appointment due to this but was totally settled once I sat down with the doctor.
The whole visit went smoothly. The wait was very short and all staff were pleasant and professional. Dr. Ky exceeded my expectations. She was very professional, knowledgeable, and personable. Clearly explained the process and procedure. Made me feel very comfortable with what will occur with surgery. I will definitely recommend Dr. Ky and her staff.
It was an extremely well run office and very professional service. I was impressed.
Got my concern answered quickly, although the appointment was so short it felt cursory. I trust that I am on a good course of treatment but perhaps appointment slots should be longer than their current 15 minutes.
I had problems everywhere after giving birth n she took care of one of major discomfort right away! Not only is she gorgeous and fashionable(she was in high heels!) but she is very competent, precise and compassionate! Fell in love w her in the first visit! Would i recommend her to my friends and family? Heck yeah!
not crazy about the clinic in China town, i had to refill many forms despite I did that on zocdoc already but this has nothing to do with the dr herself. Despite the dr was very quick in the physical check but she was actually that good! she knew with a glance what the problem was and what needed to be done but she took her time afterward to explain in details even using pictures about the case and what is required. I would recommend.
Dr Ky was super friendly. Made me feel really comfortable
I enjoyed a wonderful experience with Dr. KY. I felt extremely assured that she was thoroughly knowledgeable with my condition. Great bedside manner's. Did not make me feel uncomfortable and was extremely thorough with her process. Would recommend highly!
I went to Dr Ky after 3 years of pain and lack of help from many other doctors who thought my condition was not severe enough for surgery. She is extremely professional and sympathized with the fact that I've had my condition for so long without any progress. She immediately scheduled surgery after hearing about my medical history and solved my problem in about 3 weeks. Throughout the entire process I didn't have any problems and I found every Mount Sinai staff to be very helpful and professional. Mount Sinai has a higher bar for medical care than any other medical institution I've ever been to.
The Doctor and staff was professional and courteous to me. Very helpful and would recommend as doctor. Highly knowledgeable!!
I was very happily surprised by how kind and personable Dr. Alex Ky and her staff were. Dr. Ky seemed down to earth and I got the feeling that she was really listening to me. She is an excellent doctor and seems to enjoy helping people.
Dr. Ky is smart, efficient and caring-- and her staff is equally commendable. One always dreads visits of this sort, but I left the office feeling like I was in great hands.
A very friendly and empathetic doctor who makes you feel at ease in anxiety-producing circumstances. She is also obviously very smart and well informed. The office is run as a tight ship, with a lot of efficient professionals doing their jobs well. I would definitely recommend Dr. Ky.
The doctor appears unwilling to communicate with patients. Although on the initial visit she appeared open and concerned, on subsequent visits she barely spoke with me, answered my questions defensively and curtly, and was out of the room before I had finished voicing my concerns.
She was one of the nicest doctor's I've ever seen. Very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. I felt like I was in good hands. I highly recommend Dr. Ky.
What a professional office! Lovely people --super smart and caring all in one. Dr Ky was terrific. I love that office and highly recommend her and her associates to everyone.
Alex is great - super positive, very upbeat, friendly and enthusiastic about answering questions. Also gentle and always explained what she was going to do. She seemed a little rushed, maybe because it was the end of the day, but overall for my consultation and pap test, it's in and out (no pun), super quick, no big delays. There is a lengthy new-patient form to complete, so I recommend obtaining that online and pre-completing before appointment. But I would definitely recommend her.
Last time I went to see Dr. Ky she took her time and she spoke to me. Today she saw me for like five seconds and she seemed to be in a rush, I was not happy about that.
Great bedside manner, made me feel comfortable regarding an inherently uncomfortable issue
It was a great visit. I felt heard in my concerns and past history which took a minute to go through. I also felt like I was leaving with good understanding of improvements that I can personally make while she is also going to take the time to investigate options to help make me feel better. For a first visit, I think you can't ask for more. And, the administrative staff was EXTREMELY nice and easy to talk to.
She's very down to earth and easy to talk to. She explained everything before she did anything to you.
I experienced a troubling complication from a procedure done by Dr. Ky involving heavy bleeding. Not sure if I needed emergency medical attention, I called the office several times to speak to her and left several messages with receptionists, though I was never able to reach her and she did not call me back. Dr. Ky shows irresponsible lack of concern for her patients-- unacceptable. Avoid.
I have unfortunately had reason to see four different doctors with Dr. Ky's specialty. She was the most articulate, professional and down-to-earth of the bunch, and she listened well.
She is an excellent professional, skilled and knowledgeable. Also, very efficient and precise. Her office functions very efficiently, and no long wait as many other offices
Dr. Ky is very smart, has a great sense of humor, and she gets to the point.
Very courteous MD, visit was very short but adequate for my needs. Staff at front desk were efficient and courteous. Follow up re prescription was excellent. Dr. Was not pushy about anything invasive or surgical.
avoid simply avoid
Doctor was very knowledgeable and pleasant to meet. Never once did it feel awkward and was so happy to receive all of her advice.
I was really impressed, it was really excellent service.
She was great! She was very informative and seemed interested in my well-being. Also, she's pretty funny, which was refreshing.
She was really friendly and didn't make me feel uncomfortable at all. I would highly recommend her.
Very pleased with her knowledge and patience. I felt confident in her diagnosis and recommends.
When I left they clarified that they would try to call in my prescription that same day, but no promises. It was a Wednesday, so I said alright. I called the pharmacy Friday because I hadn't heard from them. They said that my insurance wasn't paying for the medication and they were sending a form over to my doctors office, but that I probably wouldn't hear from them before Monday. I call Wednesday because I haven't heard anything and they say that they never received the form and gave me the "correct" number. I called my pharmacy and they read me the number that they had and said they sent it, but they'd send it again. I call back to make sure they received it and asked when I would hear something. They said they would give the form to Doctor Ky when she was in the office the next day. Another week goes by, and I don't hear anything so I call Doctor Ky's office. They said that my insurance wasn't going to pay for the medication, but they were appealing it and I should hear something in two days. That was six days ago and I haven't heard from anyone. They did get in touch with my pharmacy to let them know that my insurance wasn't paying for the medication, but they could offer a "coupon" to make the medication/gel hundreds of dollars instead of thousands. It will be three weeks tomorrow and I haven't heard from anyone regarding an alternative treatment, an appeal, and I had to ask to move my own follow-up appointment.
Shes wonderful. Very knowledgable and made me feel comfortable. Her staff is professional and helpful. Highly recommend Dr Ky.
Incredible bedside manner! Going to the Castro can be really awkward and she was amazing. Very busy office, thankfully I was the first appt
Professional, Knowledgable, and respectful. Answered all my questions and had a great temperament.
Amazing doctor, easy to talk to, efficient and very effective for my first visit. Highly recommend!
Listened well. Friendly. Competent. I trusted her diagnosis. Feel very comfortable with her.
Her staff called ahead to let me know she was running late and to see if I could come in a little later. I appreciated this because it meant i wasn't stuck waiting unnecessarily.
Dr. Alex Ky is first rate. Caring, competent, effective communicator with great support staff and patient follow-up. No question is too simple or too ridiculous for her to answer -- she's a careful listener who gets to the heart of the matter and then gives rock-solid medical advice which is understandable, comprehensive and direct. She articulates constructive, no-nonsense medical feedback. She also surrounds herself with a competent medical team, both at her office and at the hospital.
This was a great visit from the front desk person to the Doctor to the assistant. Top notch, the office runs like a well oiled machine.
Dr. Ky is friendly but direct and candid. Right away you know you're in the hands of a pro.
Very professional doctor. Dr Alex Ky is an excellent communicator and conveys clarity, sincerely, and competence. She is a pro at giving a diagnosis and providing practical choices for next steps of care.
It was awesome; she is so lovely and funny, and damn good at her job, too!
This was my first visit with Dr. Ky. I will need to have a follow-up. Dr. Ky was able to understand my issue quickly and had good feedback to help address the underlying issue. The topic (rectal issues generally) is not easy to talk about and she made it comfortable to do so. The office had not prepared my documentation despite me pre-filling everything out on ZocDoc. Since this is 4-5th time this has happened at various offices, I don't think this is something to hold against this particular office, but more an inefficiency that few offices seem to have been able to solve yet.
Very nice Dr, very short wait to see her and see super quick and thorough and she seems extremely knowledgeable, in and out in no time, and receptionist is the nicest I've seen, I've never actually encountered a nice reception staff
It was lovely. Fast (well, there was not that much to diagnose, it was obvious) and she has a great sense of humour!
Excellent doctor and highly recommended. Zero wait time (both visits!) and very professional.
Lightning fast and friendly
Dr Ky is great! She explains thoroughly, works quickly and makes you feel at ease. Nurses and front office staff are friendly and efficient as well. Great experience.
She was excellent! The only reason there was a wait was because she had emergency surgery which is totally understandable! Her staff was very nice during the wait!
Excellent doctor. Personable, well spoken, and makes you feel extremely comfortable. Highly recommend.
Great efficient service although the delay was pretty long. Doctor was very comforting and efficient.
Great. Put me at ease. Highly recommended.
I had a very bad experience after surgery and ended up being hospitalized two more time post and needing blood transfusions, never saw Dr Ky in recovery room or there after. Very unhappy
Dr. Ky made me feel at ease and she and her staff got me in and out of the office quickly. She quickly diagnosed the problem and I was on my way.
She is competent and confident in her abilities. The nurses are very friendly and helpful.
