Professional Statement

Dr. Im completed her residency in Obstetrics & Gynecology at the New York Presbyterian Weill-Cornell Center in 2007. She then practiced and taught at the Bugando Medical Centre and the Weill-Bugando University College of Health Sciences as on-the-ground faculty for Weill-Cornell Medical College in Mwanza, Tanzania. While there, she focused on improving emergency obstetric care and started several different programs in women's health including those for cervical cancer screening, emergency obstetric ultrasound, and laparoscopy. Though she continues her involvement overseas with medical education for faculty and residents, her vision for bringing compassionate quality care to patients in her hometown brought Dr. Im back to New York City where she joined the faculty of New York Downtown Hospital in June 2010, before moving her practice to Weill Cornell's faculty practice in Tribeca.

Dr. Im is very nice and knowledgable. Her ability to simply explain all procedures, along with her reassuring manner made my first visit to the gyno very relaxed and pleasant. I would feel comfortable asking her any and all questions in the future.

I saw Dr. Im for a routine checkup and have no complaints. She saw me relatively promptly (my wait was ~20 min, which is pretty good imo), went through the checkup process efficiently, and answered the few questions that I had succinctly.

My appointment with Dr. Im went very well. There was minimal paperwork to fill out and the front desk seemed to run very efficiently. Everyone there was very pleasant which isn't the case in many offices. Prior to my exam, I liked that Dr. Im sat with me an asked about my medical history, concerns, and reason for my visit rather than leaving that to a form. It was much more personal and allowed for me to be more open. She was very kind and I was in and out of the office in about an hour and I did not feel rushed at any time. I am very pleased with Dr. Im and this practice.

I love Dr. B, she is a total professional who realy listens and cares about your health and well being. Unfortunately she is always booked up and super hard to get an appointment with. I have since changed doctors for this reason.

Overall excellent. I scheduled Dr. Beatrice for my annual well woman visit. She was happy to address any and all concerns that I had. The only slight drawback was the wait time until I saw the doctor, which led me to sit ~20 min in an empty exam room (great for a nap!). I would recommend her if you like a no nonsense, painless procedure.

Dr Im is one of the nicest and caring doctor I have ever met; and I have met quite a lot around the globe. She took her time to explain everything she was doing before actually doing it, which is very pleasant especially when meeting an OB-GYN. I will definitely recommend her and will go see her in the future for sure.

It took me a while to see Dr. Beatrice, but it was so worth it. For the first time im my 34 years I felt comfortable with a ginecologist. She is very personable and, as everyone else said before, she took her time with me and clearified every question I had. I'm very happy with my choice. Thanks Zoc Doc for making my life easier!

Dr. Im was cold and didn't really have time to answer my questions. Additionally, I really needed some support for her from something tough I was going through and she didn't have a minute to give me the support I needed. I wouldn't recommend her.

Friendly, courteous staff; clean and professional office; no wait time for booking appointment or upon arriving at the office. Dr Im was professional and knowledgeable. Perhaps not the warmest person, but I felt very comfortable and in good hands. Probably one of the smoothest doctor experience I have had in New York.
