I have been going to Dr. Kung for 4 years. She is thorough, and professional. When I had to have some suspicious moles removed, she took the time to explain everything to me. There is sometimes a wait in her office, but never anything crazy.

I feel bad giving her the 4 stars for wait time, just going by the guideline zocdoc has set. I had a wait time of 17 minutes, which isn't unreasonable. Things happen. Some people ask a lot of questions or are a little slow, and like traffic, sometimes there is a back up. Otherwise the assistant was nice, and Elaine was friendly and direct in answering my questions and going over my concerns. Afterwards they made sure I left with all the resources I need.

The physician is very good, but the front office staff is harried. It would also be better if medical staff in general would make use of the data in Zocdoc instead of making us fill out paper forms.

The wait was okay - maybe 20-30 minutes. I wish it was shorter mostly because I was there during my lunch break. I liked Dr. Kung - she was very knowledgeable and straight forward. I do think she could have been a little warmer but overall good experience.

The entire experience was amazing. From the receptionists to the very knowledgable nurse. The offices are clean and everyone is so helpful. I didn't realize I needed a referral and the receptionists called my doctor and set it up within 10 minutes. No hassles never felt rushed. The nurse answered all my many many questions and I felt taken care of. Definitely recommend !!

It was my first visit for an overall skin check, and I found Doctor Kung professional, thorough, and kind. If I had a question, she answered it with candor. Having had a lot of experience with other dermatologists (in California, where I'm from) and also another fine dermatologist in NYC, my impression is that Dr. Kung neither over-treats nor under-treats. She paid careful attention and made notes of any areas to watch. I'll be doing a follow-up appointment and look forward to it.
