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 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 it all 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 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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.
