Dr. Wei was friendly, answered my questions, and made me feel comfortable. He was able to send my prescription to a nearby pharamacy which was ready by the time I arrived. The office could use some update but overall a quickvisit, (I waited about 15 minutes or so) and a pleasant experience.

Dr. Wei is professional and courteous without wasting time on small talk - he gets right to the point of the appointment and was able to educate me about the diagnosis as well as treatment plan. wait time was less than15 minutes and the treatment time was even less than that. he also electronically sends the prescription to the 'Buy Rite' pharmacy downstairs so you get your meds right away. Highly recommend this practice, especially if you are in the chinatown area.

After reading some of the other reviews, I was a little uncertain about my visit, but all went really well and I left entirely satisfied.

Not personable at all and the scribe at the front desk had a nasty attitude. I had an appointment through zocdoc and it was pointless because they didn't honor it. I had to wait over an hour to get checked.

This visit was terrible! The receptionists were extremely rude and were not helpful AT ALL. I waited over an hour to be seen, and when I was actually called in, the visit lasted no more than 5 minutes. I still havenot been told what was wrong with me. Instead, I was rushed out of the office with 5 different prescriptions,that were sent to their partner pharmacy (I was told that prescriptions cant be filled anywhere else). Yet still my doctor made no move to explain what everything was for, or even how they were to be used. Thank God for Google! I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THIS DOCTOR.
