I feel I was rushed. She also was using her cell phone and not really paying attention to my concern. Allshe said is that Stress is also causing my problem. I'm seeing another doctor.

Dr. Ky and everyone else I interacted with in the office did their best to make me feel comfortable; much appreciated since it was a visit I was anxious about. They were professional, efficient, and seemed highly skilled. Dr. Ky and her assistant answered all of my questions, explained my options but didn’t try to push any procedures. I would definitely recommend Dr. Ky.

I waited over 40 minutes to meet with the doctor for 4 minutes. She seemed nice/competent, but was clearly in a rush and I barely got to ask any questions, since she was practically walking out the door as I spoke to her.

Dr. Ky rushed through my visit. She was out of the exam room before I could ask questions regarding my upcoming procedure. During my post-op visit, she rushed through everything the exam. I attempted to reach her via the messaging portal used by the hospital and she never replied to my messages. I felt abandoned and neglected because of the lack of response. I was able to find another doctor to support me.

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 no space to ask them. I left feeling more confused and concerned than I was before the appointment.
