longer wait at the Front Street location, but Dr. Rhee kindly explained how busy it gets at certain hours. Even though I was the last patient of the day, She still had a very pleasant demeanor and she still took time and listened to my concerns and questions. Very Professional!

I will not be returning. The doctor spent about 30 seconds with me, and the front desk called my prescription into the wrong pharmacy. I couldn't get it until the next day as a result and wasted a lot of time on the phone with the office and pharmacy.

Dr. Rhee was very friendly even if I was her first time patient. She has a very calm demeanor and shows you she is interested in your case and wants to hear what you have to say. She is very knowledgable and does not just prescribe you something but gives you options first. I would recommend her. I will be making another appointment for a checkup in a months time in her upper east side clinic.

I give the doctor a very good grade for professionalism and good bedside manner. My condition was pretty garden variety and not serious but I do feel that she could take a little more time to hear out my concerns and perhaps ask the questions that would uncover concerns. The office environment is friendly and pleasant and overall, I am happy to have this doctor to go to.

Dr. Rhee is friendly and warm, but I felt rushed during my appointment. Though she is knowledgeable, I would have liked to spend more time on my skin exam and discussing my options related to my condition. I was also disappointed about having my prescription filled at a boutique pharmacy, instead of my local pharmacy that offers a lesser copay. The staff was adamant that I have my prescription filled at their specific pharmacy.

I had a bad follow-up experience yesterday with this dermatologist. This was after a previous appointment a few weeks prior (which was fine!) and medications she had prescribed to me. - I waited 40 minutes past my appointment time. - When I saw a nurse, I mentioned that two of the five prescriptions the doctor had written I wasn't able to fill, because they weren't covered by my insurance. She had given me some samples. My pharmacy called her office and asked if they could fill it with generic medicine, but the office did not get back to them or to me. - After I told this to the nurse and she left to relay it to the doctor, I heard the doctor loudly complaining about it outside the room before she came in to see me. - The doctor was curt, saw me for 5 mins and wrote me an additional, 6th prescription, on top of the 5 she previously prescribed. She also told me it was the pharmacy's fault for not taking my insurance: that it should have been covered and pharmacies lie to patients about what they can fill. I haven't had this happen and didn't think it was a problem to change something to another/generic medication if I wasn't covered. She suggested I fill my medications through a boutique pharmacy, but I need to call, give them my insurance information myself and find out if the meds are covered. I was there for what I considered to be minor skincare things, so I'm surprised and annoyed that I need to take 6 forms of medicine to fix them. It felt like the doctor was more interested in writing extra prescriptions then actually taking time to talk to me, see if the meds are helping or giving my skin side-effects, and figure out if these problems are rooted in anything else. I felt crammed in and like this practice is too overbooked to really talk to their patients. Between her manner, the prescription overload, and wait time, I won't be back.

The doctor took no time to answer my questions, and acted as though my contemplating a treatment and talking through alternatives was an inconvenience. I used to love it here, but this was incredibly disappointing and uncomfortable so I unfortunately won't be seeing the doctor anymore

Dr.Rhee is always great! She is professional, friendly and efficient. In addition, she is very knowledgeable and always willing to hear your thoughts and concerns while allowing you to feel comfortable. I highly recommend Dr.Rhee as anyone's Dermatologist. In addition to Dr.Rhee, PA Taylor and PA Melissa are also help make up a great Dr. Buka dermatology staff. My favorite office to visit is the UWS.

After waiting about 25 minutes past my appointment time to be seen, the visit felt a little rushed - I hadn't been to the dermatologist in a while and had a few questions, which Libby answered, but she didn't take much to explore options for resolutions with me. She was very nice and easy to talk to though, and she made sure to schedule a follow-up so she can check my progress.
