i felt very rushed everytime I visit her. she doesn't even make eye contact. Always trying to upsell herbal/therapuetic products. Her nurse assistant Irene is always nice. The receiptionst, (Lucia i think that's her name) is super rude andalways condescending whenever you as her a question, like she hates her job. Unfortunately, it is time to look for a different doctor.

Dr Sy was pleasant throughout my first appointment, which was a general physical, until the end. I had a final question for her about my health. While asking her my question, she interrupted me saying, "this is a general physical. Ican't be answering multiple questions." She then told me to check out with the girls up front. Upon checking out, I walked back to Dr Sy's office and asked why she answered me in the rude manner she did for my medical related question. She said her "criteria for general physicals is to address 5 things...nothing more!" How is a patient to know that only 5 questions are to be addressed? The receptionist asked if I'll be getting my blood work done here, I said I don't know if I'll be back again.

I usually avoid doctors because of a lot of bad experiences: not taking time with you, not really listening to you and or throwing a prescription as a cure all. I loved the fact that Dr Sy spent a lot oftime with me, listened how I like to approach my health; took lots of notes and is working with me like a team member to figure out what may be wrong. The office staff was equally impressive !

I love Dr Sy and her medical assistant. Dr Sy was very thorough and professional. I was hesitant about my appointment because of the way the front secretary sound on the phone very rough. Even the benefit advocate complained about howshe was on the phone when she called the office to fax my insurance benefit. But I was happy I kept my appointment. After all it's not about the secretary it's about the competence of healthcare provider. Thank you Dr Sy.

I can't remember the last time I was seen so swiftly. Dr. Sy runs a tight ship, and (an even MORE special bonus) her front-end staff were friendly and helpful. As if it's not difficult enough to be a smart doctor,with great bedside manner, make accurate diagnoses, and suggest gold standard treatment, Dr. Sy has found the right team to support her throughout the process. My hat is off to the entire operation. I was so pleased! I raved to everyone I spoke with yesterday about how excellent my primary care physician is!! Thank you for leading me to her ZocDoc!!!

Dr. Sy is a breath of fresh air in an otherwise indifferent medical community that too often is too busy to talk about anything other than your most important medical concern and where physicians dictate, don't listen, and rush from oneexamination room to the next. She is very thorough in putting/interpreting past history with current possibilities and crafting a good clinical plan. Dr Sy focuses on the whole body and not just the local area of interest, understanding that the local abnormality often reflects a systemic or multi-systemic problem. I look forward to working with Dr. Sy in management of my overall health.

I expected more after reading all wonderful reviews. Most of the appointment the doctor spent on her laptop entering data. Minimal eye contact, little interest in me, just another report to fill. If I only have to come here for annual,that is fine, not sure if I want this doctor to be my primary care provider in a future. I has my pap and mammogram done by my OBGYN and even with the unpleasant nature of that exam, I'd much rather go to her next time than Dr. Sy

I have seen her for a while now and I only have one complaint: she didn't inform me that she was going to run an experimental test on me, and worse than that, it is a test that isn't approvedby most insurances! Now I am stuck with a huge bill for a test I didn't ask for. However, she is extremely nice and easy to talk to and seems genuinely interested in your health.

I simply adore Dr. Sy! She is the greatest. I cannot believe how much better I feel just from seeing her. She truly has healing hands. I just feel that I am in the presence of a most capable, caring physician.Dr. Sy has my greatest vote of confidence, which is saying a lot because I find it difficult to trust many people who are in positions of authority, due to past negative experiences. Thank you, Dr. Sy, so very much for a most positive medical treatment.

I absolutely love Dr. Sy. She makes me feel so comfortable and really takes the time to explain everything, what the different test results are saying, what that means for me, and what different options are. I've seen her several timesafter finding her on ZocDoc and would highly recommend her to anyone. Plus they have an online patient portal system where the doctor can send notes, you can schedule your appointment, you can ask questions and the appropriate person responds, and they send test results.
