I waited until I received my insurance claims before reviewing... I went in for a specific issue requiring meds. The doctor agreed on my self-diagnosis but performed a biopsy even though I said "Hey wait, no I can't afford this." Hisreply was "Don't worry, we don't receive anything for biopsies." Not sure if this stemmed from a communication issue, but you're not allowed to leave the office unless you sign a waiver that you agreed to the biopsy. I was right -- I cannot afford the claim. Your bedside manner cannot make up for this. Also he didn't wear gloves, which skeeved me out!

Everything is good except the wait time. Almost every visit is an hour wait, which is way too long. The office admin should limit the number of appointments or spread out each more.

I have seen Dr. Son twice now and I love him. I moved farther away from both if his offices but still traveled a long way to go see him. Receptionist& nurses are all nice. He is very patient, takes timeto explain and answer all my questions. The only thing is the wait time...even with my appointment and showing up 15min earlier, I ended up waiting for an hour and there was someone who waited even longer than me. It seemed like they were taking some walk ins as well which probably made wait longer. But in his other office in Newark there was no wait time so maybe I had a bad day. Still I recommend the doctor highly

I wish he had spent some more time on the appointment, but he was excellent and fixed the issue. So I guess it was long enough to be sufficient? Very intelligent, comprehensive doctor though.

The doctor came in and he was nice but he didn't even take a look at closely at my face. He did not ask questions about family history or when I my acne occurs. He did a 1 minute extraction andnot only was it painful but he was in a rush. Not too happy about the visit.
