Dr. Song and his staff were exceedingly professional, polite, and efficient. Dr. Song took his time to understand my case, not rushing through the appointment and even sat with me two times after the check up, again very generous with histime and thoughtful about things I might consider. I would recommend his practice to anyone. The nurse practitioner was also very kind making me feel comfortable throughout the visit.

I left this appointment, shaken. Two weeks later, I am absolutely horrified. First of all, no blood tests or vitals are taken in office even though their are multiple nurses on site. You are sent 3 blocks away to another facility.OK, fine but when you are unwell, this is a huge inconvenience. Secondly, before introducing himself, Dr. Song began to berate his office assistant calling her a slew of names for some scheduling error. When leaving, she apologized to me that I had to hear that, calling her employer unprofessional (Which he is). Fast forward 2 weeks, I get a call regarding test results from the office assistant, containing sensitive results that the doctor should have released to me himself. I demanded to speak to someone who could release the information to me and was put on hold for a half hour. Once I was passed over to a nurse practitioner, she was able to tell me the results with no next steps or treatment options other than 'keep yourself healthy'. I asked to have my lab results sent to my email; which they were after I followed up 3+ times. Here is the real kicker, according to the digital copy that I received, the office received the results on 7/12 and it is now 7/25, approximately two weeks later. This was time sensitive information and it took two weeks to deliver upon me demanding a result. What an unprofessional office and Doctor. I will never be returning here.

The office isn’t what I expected whatsoever. I walked in and it’s an apartment set-up as a consultation office. The Dr. didn’t do anything but ask me a few questions. The nurse practitioner was the one who did the actual workfrom examination to removal of the IUD. Also, I was told take Motrin, but they didn’t even have water. The ladies that worked there were kind enough to offer me some of there water and I said no because how is it that a clinic doesn’t have water for patients. Then I spoke to the nurse practitioner and she offered a can juiced that apparently no one drinks. Then after the removal of the IUD I asked for a pad and they don’t offer it either. I was really in shock because this a GYN office, where these kinds of things should be available. I like the treatment of the ladies who worked there but I couldn’t come back to an office/apartment that doesn’t have the patients in there best interest.

My favorite thing about this practice is the trans-vaginal ultrasound machine right in the office. This should be mandatory for all Ob-Gyn offices these days. Office staff is fine, nurses good too. He is very attentive and listened to all myhistory and and issues, and he was extremely thorough during the ultrasound walking through the health of my uterus and ovaries with me. He measured everything and doubled checked everything. I felt completely examined and listened to. Highly recommend. I only visited the Manhattan office. Since the ultrasound might be a step above a normal pap exam I recommend making sure it is covered by your insurance prior to the exam.

Highly recommend Dr. Song and his entire office. Dr. Song was very understanding of my medical history and birth control choices. In my first visit with him he sat down and listened to everything, weight gains, cramps, everything. He wassuper patient and very intuitive. Gynecologists like him are hard to come by. I had no idea why things weren't working as expected and he got to the root of the problem in the first visit (with a sonogram screening). It was SO relieving. No one tells you how complex your body is and having a team that reassures you and shows you what is going on gives a huge peace of mind.

I made a last minute appointment with Dr. Song but was happy to be seen. I moved to NYC about 6 months ago, so this was my first time seeing a new GYN. I got to the office early and assoon as I filled out my paperwork, I was seen right away. Dr. Song asked me questions about my medical history. It was really helpful because I learned a lot about my IUD I didn’t previously know. Based on what I came in for, he recommended that & get a PAP & sonogram; both were conducted by his PA and nurse. These ladies made me feel very comfortable and were completely knowledgeable. Again, I learned a lot about my body and how it responds to different things more than I have during any other GYN appointment. I’m so glad I found Dr. Song!

This was my first appointment with Dr. Song and I felt comfortable and at ease the entire time. He began by asking me what brought me in, and listened intently asking all the right questions where appropriate. I felt heard, unlikeat my previous Gynecologist. He addressed all my concerns, and explained everything thoroughly, making sure I understood how we were going to proceed. He was understanding and kind, and any nerves I had about the appointment subsided minutes after we began the consultation. The office itself was incredibly clean, but not to clinical/medical looking, which I really appreciated. The ambience was wonderful, and the front desk staff were so incredibly sweet and thoughtful. I can’t say just how incredibly thankful I am that I came in, and Dr. Song was as thorough as he was. I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience here, and am looking forward to my follow up appointment. Thank you to Dr. Song and his team!

This office is very rude and unhelpful. A waste of time! Disorganized. They called me numerous times asking me to move my appointment even though I told them the first time I work until 4pm so I can’t come in earlier.Then when I went into the office doctor’s behavior was very erratic they weren’t able to help me even though I stated the reason I was coming in for in the notes . A huge waste of times... stay away!

I really appreciated the levity he brought into the room. The doctor's office itself must bea renovated apartment on the first floor of a nice building, so it feels very homey and relaxing. It was super clean, very bright/well lit and very comfortable. I wish all my other doctors had offices like it!

The dr seems good but he is not performing any of the exams, and the office personnel and nurse are very unprofessional - nurse is making sounds of disgust and doesn’t do a real vaginal exam. Literally just looks at it.- you have to repeat same information to everyone - there’s no testing performed there, you have to go get tests taken somewhere else and then get another appointment to get the results - they told me over phone I didn’t need medicine for my tests but when I met the Dr it turned out I did!

I was able to book an appointment for the following day. Dr. Song saw me right away (I didn't have to wait at all!), and took his time to learn my family history, my own history, and my concerns. This wasthe first time that I didn't feel rushed in an ob/gyn appointment. I went to see him to seek treatment for an issue I've had in the past couple of years, and I thought I'd be given some medicine, like all other doctors did. Instead, he wanted to find the cause, and he did, which completely blew me away! Why haven't my previous doctors seen this? I felt like he genuinely cares about his patients, and loves his profession. I am extremely happy about my visit.

Staff aside from the doctor seemed inexperienced, follow-up was not helpful, proposed "remedy" wasn't discussed enough. The girls that worked in the office were personable and the technology that the doctor had access to was good. Aspects of the visit were positive, but the negative outweighed the positive.

First of all, the office is so clean and cozy. It was very comforting. I was seen as soon as I did some paper work, which was only about 2 pages long. Joon and his staff were very kind and accommodating.Joon has a bit of an accent, but he managed to explain everything very well and really seemed to care. My next upcoming appointment will involve some not so pleasant procedures, so I'm glad I picked such a welcoming place.
