Great! She gives you an opportunity to ask all your questions. And she’s very approachable. Also, the staff is amazing! Literally. Everything I’m there they use such affirming language. It’s actually the best doctors office I’ve been to in my history.

The kindest & most attentive doctor I’ve had. She is very kind, patient, and welcoming. There was not a long wait time to see Dr. Han, and it’s obvious she does care for her patients. Definitely recommend!

I’ve never had such a pleasant doctor’s visit. Between signing in and waiting for the doctor, I didn’t have to wait at all. And once I met with doctor Ha she was patient, answered all of my questions, was thorough, andoverall just gave me her undivided time. And the staff was amazing, and again patient and kind. My nurse was so positive and had such an uplifting vibe. I would definitely recommend this office.

I loved Dr. Helen! She was very thorough and took the time to go over my medical history, past diagnoses, new concerns, and what she recommended going forward. She was very kind and apologized that I had to wait in theroom for her for a while (about 10-15mins?). I would definitely recommend her.

Dr. Ha was not very knowledgeable in what was covered under my insurance. I understand insurance policies are all different and complex, but a general understanding of the major players and what is generally covered would have helped. I alsomentioned I was traveling out of the country and she was not aware of the vaccines I should get nor did she have any recommendations, instead she told me to go to a travel clinic. It seemed as if she wanted to remove any liability from her end and redirect all my questions elsewhere.

Truly one of the most caring doctors I've had in my life. I'm glad I chose her as my new primary care physician. She was very professional and took her time to explain things to me. Only downside is where sheis located, near Wall Street, so the commute can be annoying.

This was the easiest MD visit ever. The facilities are modern and clean. Registration is done via tablets. I never waited more than 10 minutes for anything. A full check-up and CBC lab panel were done within my lunch hour. The staff is friendly, and professional. Highly recommended.

She was very nice and easy to talk too. There was barley a wait and the office can do everything digitally - which I love! The Trinity center staff were also nice and professional, providing all future visits are like thisI think I found my new primary care physician ??! Only downside is they currently don't do weekend appointments but I think I'll survive.

She is cordial as well as to the point. She quickly got me references for my followup problem, and she suggested that I don't wait long. She does not hesitate to suggest what she believes, but she does it in arelaxed and flexible way, depending on what your needs are.

VISITING DOCTOR HA, IS LIKE TALKING TO A MACHINE...Being that there was very little bad review of this doctor, i thought it would have been a great choice for a primary care doctor, but it turn out that i was SOWRONG....SHE WAS VERY COLD and SEEMS ANNOYED. DO NOT WAIST YOUR TIME... A SLIGHT DELAY IN YOUR HEALTH IS SIMPLY UNACCEPTABLE AND COULD EASILY RESULT TO DEATH.

I chose this doctor as my PCP based on ZocDoc reviews, but unfortunately did not have a good experience with her and immediately started looking for a new PCP. She has many great reviews, and I don't doubt those; she wasknowledgeable and had a good understanding of my health issues and certainly took them seriously - all things that I look for in a good doctor. What I didn't like was that she was cold and unfriendly, gave no greeting when she walked in, and I felt that she had little interest in actually talking to me. These are things that don't matter to everyone, and if they don't matter to you, then I probably would recommend her. For me, conversation and friendliness are important, and for those reasons, I went elsewhere. (The NYU Langone staff at this office are wonderful, though - very welcoming, considerate and efficient.)

I have been to Dr. Ha about 3 or 4 times now and I have to say every experience has been very pleasant. She has excellent beside manner and is very spoke spoken and calm which is nice for someone whois not a big fan of the doctors office. I have NEVER waited for more than 5 minutes, and she never ever rushes me out. She will sit and listen to all you questions and concerns and is very thorough in explaining your situation and/or medications etc. Highly recommended!

I had a very positive first experience with Dr. Ha. I was looking for a new PPC as well as coming in with an issue and I can confidently i say I would go back to her. Both her and thenurse were very friendly and took their time with me instead of rushing me in and out the door. She was very thorough and patient answering all my questions and concerns. I felt very comfortable and I am NOT someone who is usually comfortable in any medical office. Definitely see dr. Ha, you will not be disappointed.

Dr. Ha was so thorough and seemed genuinely concerned. She took immense care into my family history and gave me a heads up about some things I should be doing and looking into based on that family history. I ended upneeding some other tests run when I saw Dr. Ha and every staff member involved was so kind and made me feel so comfortable. I was truly impressed

The receptionist, Lisa, was incredibly friendly. There was a short line but the staff was fast. It was my first time at this office and they did a great job making me feel welcomed. The nurse practitioner who took my bloodpressure and health history was very nice and friendly. Dr. Ha was really nice as well!

This Doctor dismissed the health issue I was complaining about. Told me to talk to another Doctor instead. Spent more time running in and out of the exam room to use an outside computer because they were having technical problems. Ifelt I was not heard and just brushed aside as she pointed me in the direction of the lab station and off to see another patient she went. Wow I've never seen such unprofessional behavior before from a Doctor. I would not recommend this doctor to others. Very disappointed as NYU Trinity Center usually has nice doctors.

I had my Doctor’s appointment this morning with Dr. Ha and she was terrible!! She walked in the room with an attitude and I didn’t like it at all!!! She started reprimanding me for not following up with the other Drs.I felt like she was scolding me, even rolled her eyes a few times!! It was supposed to be a annual physical and she barely touched me. My normal Doctor left the practice so this was my first visit with her. I was expecting her to introduce herself, chat a little bit...nothing!!! I will definitely continue my search, but I needed her to get my referrals to the other Doctors! Sigh!
