Dr. Song has also published many articles in gynecology and cancer. One of his publications in breast cancer earned a grant from the NIH, which helped him join the breast cancer research team at Yale for five years. While doing research and best private gynecology practice, Dr. Song’s long contribution to Robotic surgery brought attention from national quality assurance program, CSATS, and nominated as Top 5 leading surgeons in Robotic myomectomy. He established his private practice in 2012, and has been operating since then. Dr. Song has 29 years of experience operating sonogram machines, and currently operates our AIUM Accredited Ultrasound machine himself. His evaluation is often followed by surgery, which allows him to know what is happening both inside and outside the pelvic organs. He performs all minor procedures in his office, including biopsy, colposcopy, IUD placement/removal, and even surgical consultation. Dr. Song is an outstanding expert in gynecology for a variety of conditions.Our goal is performing proper medical examination and proper management as the best of standard care.

I couldn't have been more pleased with my visit . Doctor Song spent a lot of time explaining in detail what I was dealing with, and clarified a laundry list of items that I had been told I had. If you have a problem, he is your guy. He's smart, understands medicine and surgery, a pleasure to speak with and runs an excellent operation. Some people have said they didn't like the apartment feel of the office, I personally love it. He plays music and it feels homey yet professional. I have had a ton of stress surrounding medical issues and I know know I'm going to be okay and we have a plan. Would recommend to anyone.

Absolutely horrible experience. Wait time was long. The office was not clean. Staff was not knowledgeable. Provider was not friendly. They also "lost" my lab work results and weren't able to provide me with the results until almost 3 months later.

It was an amazing experience with comprehensive gynecology evaluation, very on point. I visited Dr.Song after failure of IVF, two times.... He evaluated me with his office sonogram and explained about my uterus condition in detail. I received office surgery, named hysteroscopy and it showed very real view of my uterus. I felt so lost after many failures, but I feel much better and confident after having consultation with Dr.Song. I will recommended Dr.Song to anyone who is in the same shoe of mine. Dr.Song is super amazing and attentive with eye for detail!!

Overall I have not had a great experience with Dr. Song. Although he was going through some media scrutiny I still trusted him and wanted to give him a chance. During my time with him I underwent many procedures and blood tests ... thinking this is "normal". After I switched doctors (due to insurance changes) I realized maybe something was not right. My current doctor is very thorough and you know why you are getting what your getting done. Also the costs are very upfront and reasonable. This is not reflected at Dr. Song's office. I worry maybe he was overcharging or billing for more procedures than necessary. After speaking with Dr. Song's office they stated they are going through some changes. I truly hope things turn around. I know how hard it is for women to go through fertility complications. You need a doctor you can trust and feel comfortable. I am only writing this review because I want the same for others. You may give Dr. Song a chance but go in cautiously.

Dr. Joon Song is Very kind and responsible I highly recommended! I visited his office on March 9th.2019 I just immigrated in with 26weeks of pregnancy situation to The U.S from South Korea on March 6th.2019 My husband made an appointment a few weeks ago for the check up but without informing them I was pregnant already. When we walked in, filled out the form and we noticed that the Dr.Joon Song didn’t catch babies. I actually got a little frustrated to find other doctor. However, Dr. Song refer us a good doctor with good reviews and kept saying sorry to us that he couldn’t be able to notify us earlier. He was very responsible and friendly ! Luckily I could make an appointment with the doctor he recommended next week! I appreciate his kindness and also all of the staffs in the clinic! I definitely go back if I need to in the future! Thank you very much Dr. Joon Song

I highly appreciate Dr. Song's professionalism, intelligence, and knowledge about his field. He talked to me at length about my symptoms, and was sure to go right to the source of those symptoms, and to lay out possible treatment options for me. I will certainly be returning for further treatments for PCOS (about which he is very knowledgeable) and would highly recommend him.

It was a very odd appointment. The office looks like someone’s home office with loud records playing - not ideal when you have a lot of nerves going on! They also had me pee on a test (I had already taken 3 at home that said yes) and I waited for it, the nurse came in and said “not pregnant” then I said “I’d still like to do the sonogram since 3 at home said I am” and 2 minutes later the stick showed the second line confirming. The lady that did my sonogram was not helpful or informative and she barely cleaned the machine. She also didn’t provide any I formation about how the progression was and said comments that implied some nervousness about the progress of the pregnancy. Dr. Song was very nice, but didn’t provide many answers either (though, he was willing to try). If this is your first pregnancy or you are just overall nervous and looking for some help, advice, or answers - I wouldn’t recommend going here.

Surviving life in here is tough and busy enough to stay ignorant chronic issues. When getting used to have the same problems, you just blunt the edge of nervousness. It was my first visit to dr.song , and I was found to have pre-cancerous condition. I feel greatful to have met dr.song and his team.

I will never ever go to this doctor ever again. He tried to trick me into getting all of these tests when I was just there to check out some Symptoms I was having. Super unprofessional and I’ve never had an experience like this with any doctor I’ve ever seen. The NP was super sweet and initiated the refund of my co-pay. I don’t recommend this doctor at al, keep looking.
