I am so glad I found Dr. Song!! I previously had IUD inserted with another provider. The IUD started causing extreme cramping so I scheduled a last minute appointment with Dr. Song to make sure everything was okay. He confirmed thatmy IUD was not inserted correctly and is in the wrong location. He was able to remove it the same day. I later inserted a new IUD with Dr. Song and so far, there are no complaints! Thank you Dr. Song. Your staff were friendly and helpful as well.

I had persistent bleeding issue for months. It was worrisome but dealt with somehow to the point when I couldn’t bear pain any more. I was immediately evaluated with the office sonogram, which showed many polyps and some other conditions, andwas offered a procedure. I wanted to do the procedure on the first visit, hoping end of bleeding and pain. The procedure went well and stopped bleeding after few days of lingering bleeding. I just reviewed all test results and treatment options, and the lengthy discussion with Dr.Song gave me a true understanding of my condition. I truly appreciate Dr.Song’s thorough care and treatment.

Dr. Song and his staff were amazing. From the start of my appointment to the very end I felt like I could relax and just express all my concerns without judgement. He did more than just listen, he took immediate action.Sending me for labs, office test and routine procedures within 20 minutes of me being there. He was very good at explaining his findings and helping me come up with a plan to reach my goal. I will be recommending Dr. Song to anyone I come across looking for a GYN/ Reproductive Endocrinologist as I was truly pleased with my first visit.

Dr.Song is great specialist for gynecology. I was referred by recent ER visit for another dramatic pain event that I had been going though for years. Our initial discussion was very clear and detailed out of the office sonogram findings. Iwas informed in detail of my condition which made sense of all those sufferings… I felt great after the surgery with Dr.Song and with his regimen. I truly appreciate Dr.Song and his lovely team.

I would not go here. I walked in for a yearly appointment that should have been free and walked out with a huge ridiculous bill. I kept calling to fix it and they never returned my calls. This was such ahassle I would recommend don't waste your time here and find a better-organized office. I would give them 0 stars if it were possible.

He compared my pain due to my IUD to an unhealthy/abusive relationship and that I should just stick with it despite the pain because I’ve stuck with it for a couple years already.

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!
