She was interested in getting all physical conditions I have, not only her specialization or the initial reason for my visit.That made me feel comfortable right away, knowing that she examines her patients connecting every physical symptom or medical history as a whole to rule out or consider the roots of the problem. She was very friendly and easy to talk to about physical information which can sometimes be embarrassing but necessary. Never intrusive.. Dr. Paik didn't make me feel rushed to give her my concerns and questions, but was very efficient asking questions and providing advice and information. This was my first visit but feel very comfortable to going back and staying with her in the future.

After not going to the gynecologist for 5 years following the birth of my last child, and needing to find a new doctor after switching insurance, I wasn't sure who to see. I looked at dozens of profiles and review sites,but all the doctors I looked at had mixed reviews and ultimately I took the recommendation to see Dr Paik from a very smart, very careful friend who had had a very difficult pregnancy. I went in expecting to get a (well-deserved) guilt-inducing admonition about not coming regularly, and a quick, perfunctory exam. Instead, Dr. Paik was warm and friendly, and didn't chide me at all about the 5-year delay (although I wouldn't have blamed her if she had), asked very thorough questions of my family history and recommended steps accordingly. She acknowledged my concerns about various tests, and presented balanced perspectives on them but with clear recommendations and rationale for the course of action she proposed. She then offered time and freedom to think about what some would consider a very big decision. Her physical exam was gentle and professional and well-done (and after years of fertility treatments I've had plenty of comparisons). I've never taken the time to write a doctor review before, but was so relieved and impressed with Dr. Paik's care and bedside manner, I wanted others to know.

I had a great visit! I arrived early and was actually seen before my appointment time - I was in and out of the office in 30 minutes (exam included). The receptionist and nurse who greeted me were both friendly andprofessional, as was Dr. Paik. I was just in for an annual visit but from what I saw, I would recommend this office and doctor without reservation. A bonus was the ample (free) parking onsite.

Wait time was unexpectedly over one hour, however, the office staff was kind enough to inform us that Dr. Paik was running unusually behind schedule, and everyone apologized several times to us for the delay. As a new patient, I foundthis to be a very good indication that the office staff values all of their patients time and understand the importance of keeping appointments on time and as scheduled to the extent possible.

While Dr. Paik has good bedside manner; however, her staff is rude and downright unprofessional. I have been repeatedly put on hold from 5-15 minutes, needed to call the office simply to check on my test results, have been repeatedly spokento in a condescending tone, after my initial visit I had to hound them to simply send the prescription to the correct pharmacy. It is always unnerving to have to deal with them and I dread my appointments more because of the staff than any of the unpleasant procedures. Today's discussion with a nurse was the last straw. I am taking my business elsewhere.

I've been going to dr.paik for years; she's very knowledgable and friendly. I've seen her at both practice locations. My only negative feedback is the Herndon location. Appointments are always overbooked; the waiting room is full and noisy.I've previously waited over an hour. The walls to the rooms are very thin so you can hear everything (staff, other patients asking questions). I come for the doctor, she makes it worth the visit.
