I originally booked for a day before but after sitting in the exam room for an hour was told that the Dr. wasn't coming in for the day. I rebooked for the next day with the same Dr. because I washaving a hard time finding availability with other offices & wanted to get checked out before heading out of town. Once in the exam room, the wait was a little long but not excessive. When the Dr.'s assistant took me into the room she went through the normal questions & asked if I had any areas of concern before seeing the doctor & I pointed them out. When the Dr. came in it was a really quick exam and she didn't look at any of the areas of concern I had mentioned, so I had to point them out again. She was extremely friendly & personable but I didn't leave the office feeling confident that my annual screening was actually normal.

Not very convinced with answers. Took a glance at the “blemish” on the side of thigh and said “it is nothing to worry about” without touching nor measuring it to assure it isn’t harmful... Very quick. 2nd visit Another doctor didn’teven check area for profess (follow-up appointment... Not satisfied with the speed to get you in and out.

I waited over one hour to be seen by Dr. Rhee, who I saw for a total of 5 minutes. It was my first time scheduling a skin screening/seeing a dermatologist so naturally I had many questions regarding healthy skin. Dr.Rhee was extremely rushed (even though I had been waiting for over an hour) and did not take the time to answer my questions. I simply asked her if she recommends anything for skin maintenance and she just said “sunscreen.” I then asked her if she recommends the use of toner and she simply told me that she cannot answer these questions because they do not fall under a medical consultation, and she recommended I book a separate cosmetic consultation to address these questions. I was shocked by this cold experience and left feeling like my time and money was very much undervalued. Please take more time with your patients as they take precious out of their days to be seen by you.

I had an appointment at 10am but even though I showed up over an hour early, I was seen quickly. Both the medical assistant and Dr. Rhee were great and listened to my problem (cystic acne after switching BC methods). Dr.Rhee explained her Rx to me and set up a follow-up for 2 weeks later. Overall, happy with my first visit and would recommend.

Dr. Rhee was very nice and professional. The other office personnel were also quite lovely and personable - easy to talk to. However, in general, I'm not sure I'd return to this practice if I had a severe skin problem, sincewhen you return you're seen by other staff, like Physician's Assistants and Nurse Practitioners, not a Doctor. I don't particularly appreciate that.

Dr. Rhee is amazing! I randomly booked an appointment with her over a year ago at another office because I was tired of dealing with stubborn cystic acne for 10+ years. Halfway through my treatment she moved offices and I endedup changing offices with her because she's just that great! I highly recommend her!

Libby was kind, but I was very disappointed in my experience in the office this visit. I arrived 5 minutes early and I was not seen until more than 30 minutes after my scheduled appointment. She apologized and explained they wereshort-staffed because a medical assistant had to leave early that day to attend school. If appointments are running behind, patients should receive a phone call saying they would not be seen on time so we can adjust appointment time. I left early from work to make my set time. Libby said she and the office staff are not allowed by her boss to inform patients of delays. I am not pleased with my overall experience and may not go back to Dr. Bobby Buka’s practice anymore.

I am very pleased with my experience. I showed up 80 minutes early for my appointment and the staff was able to get me into a room within 30 minutes of my arrival. Also, I was able to get in thesame day that I made my appointment! The atmosphere is reminiscent of a spa, there is still and sparkling water provided in the waiting area. The decor is calm with a sense of humor. Dr. Rhee is very personable, easy on the eyes and knows her stuff. I would recommend her.

Dr. Rhee is very nice, though clearly rushed, but more importantly the wait time here is pretty bad - just over an hour from the scheduled time. So it was frustrating that my time with Dr. Rhee was so brief after that.

Absolutely loved her! I went to Dr. Rhee after another dermatologist had prescribed me acne medication that left my skin dry and full of eczema. Not only that the other doctor was unresponsive, and didn't change the prescription when I complained.Dr Rhee reviewed what I had been taking and right away was alarmed at the prescriptions and dosage prescribed by the other doctor. She corrected my prescription perfectly and my skin was significantly better within just 2 weeks. I can't thank Dr Rhee enough!
