Verified Patient Reviews
Great experience, the office had personality, Dr Rhee & the rest of the staff all friendly.
it was a slow day and even though I was almost 45 minutes early I was seen pretty much right away. dr. Rhee was very pleasant and professional. She removed a mole on my arm with zero pain and lightning fast. The whole thing couldn't have been better. this was my second visit at the same office and I highly recommend it A+
Great doctor and staff. The wait time was very frustrating. I arrived 15 minutes before my appointment, and waited for almost an hour. Several people arrived after me and were immediately seen.
Dr. Rhee was nice and professional, but spent less than 10 minutes with me. I know some consultations don't need more than that, but I had more questions that she merely addressed with a blanket statement, and she really seemed eager to get going, probably because we her appointments were so behind (I was admitted ~30 min after my scheduled time.) It definitely felt like an ER proceeding, rather than a consultation. If you're visiting her office, make sure to ask her to dedicate you the amount of time that feels right to you. She probably will.
She was great, looking forward to going back!
She and the techs working with her are professional, warm, friendly, and knowledgeable. I'm so glad I found this office!!
She seemed pretty clueless to the fact that she gave me news that was not only upsetting to me but also not on my radar as a possibility. She kind of just swooped in, broke the news, blasted through the meds she was going to give me, and left. Would have been nice for her to have remembered the gravity of the information she was sharing.
Dr. Rhee is awesome and very thorough (and was very patient with my anxiety) Don't delay an appointment - it could save your life!
Dr. Libby Rhee is very professional, yet very personable. She addressed my concerns and made valid recommendations. Thank you Dr. Rhee
Wondeful doctor, nice office, she is nice, attentive, and sensitive. So happy to have found her!
Dr Rhee got right to the point, diagnosed the problem right away and prescribed a solution all in a few moments. She is a very pleasant woman and I highly recommend her.
Very good communicator and made me feel very comfortable.
Dr Rhee was great - friendly, thorough. The office staff seemed pretty disengaged. The first "hello" I got was from the doctor, not the front desk or PA.
Doctor is great but the office staff are rude and unengaged.
She's personable, caring, and knowledgable. I absolutely reccommend her to anyone.
Dr. Rhee was really accommodating and super nice. I booked my appointment last minute today, I was taken right away and I never felt rushed. I look forward to coming here for future appointments for sure.
Absolutely horrible. She ran in and ran out. Didn't talk to me or answer any questions. Didn't seem to care at all. She seemed to busy to care. She didn't even say what she was prescribing or what she thought this actually was. Will NEVER go back. Don't go if you want a doctor who cares or spends time with you. Go see a PA never a doctor again.
Dr. Rhee is awesome and very thorough - I highly recommend her!
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!
My low rating isn't to do with Dr Rhee's care, (she is very competent) It's due to the treatment I received at the Bobby Bukka office at 70th St. I checked in twice once via text message and once via Zocdoc for a second follow-up for skin cancer surgery. The day before my appointment they left an appointment reminder message and informed me I had a balance from the procedure from the month prior (the first time they'd notified me about it). I arrive at my appointment to be told "you have to settle the account before Dr Rhee will see you". They didn't say I'd need to settle my account before I'd be seen in their message, so I thought it was a fair request for them to send the bill out, you know, like many businesses do—the office manager wouldn't budge. I left without being seen. After checking it was all kosher with my insurance company, I paid the bill. The net here is Dr Rhee refused to dispense needed care before the payment was made, even as a patient's health might hang in the balance. Forced point-of-service payments are poor form Bobby Buka Dermatology, you left me feeling resentful.
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 is wonderful! She is very knowledgable and puts you at ease. In general I do not like going to the doctor but my experience with Dr. Rhee was very pleasant. I would highly recommend her.
I like her a lot. Her bedside manner is perfect and I originally was only visiting her because my other dermatologist was overbooked, but now I will start seeing her as my primary skin doc.
Short wait even though I had an appt. Never had a skin screening and Dr. Rhee found an irregularly shaped mole. SO glad I saw her - she removed it and was very sweet and understanding. Highly recommend! She is definitely my new dermatologist!
Dr. Rhee was incredible, put me at ease which made for a enjoyable appointment. I have already recommend Dr. Rhee to three people and my appointment was only yesterday.
Dr. Rhee is great. Friendly, knowledgeable. She provides thorough care quickly without ever making me feel rushed.
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.
Dr. Rhee is nice but seems to not to want to spend very much time with a patient.
She was sweet to my 3.5 year old daughter who was the patient.
Rhee is very friendly
Libby is Awesome!!
I am grateful I found Dr Rhee. After 5 years I feel I am finally getting the care I need
Dr. Rhee was incredibly friendly and efficient. I'd recommend her to anyone in need of a good dermatologist.
Dr. Rhee was very nice and did a thorough skin cancer screening, taking into account a few areas I was concerned about. She made me feel at ease and the attending nurse was very sweet as well. Will go back for my next screening!
I have never actually seen Libby Rhee but the Bobby Buka dermatologists group is a good place to go for an annual skin screening.
Saw Dr. Rhee for 2 occasions... Full body check with a small shaving. On a second visit Dr. Rhee removed a lipoma and it's healing up nicely! She is super friendly and talented.
Doctor was great once I was seen but I had to wait for over an hour past my scheduled appointment.
Very helpful and informative.
It was fine, but the whole interaction felt abrupt and slightly rushed. I was hoping to get more information about what I went in for, but Dr. Rhee just treated me and explained what felt like the bare minimum.
Very informative and funny. Always has a smile on her face and a good spirit. I have had GREAT. Results with her after trying numerous places. She is THE BEST!
I liked Dr. Rhee, got there on time but waited. 30 minutes, the waiting and receptionist area was awesome and my treatment was quick. I would go back
I love her!! She's awesome!!
Friendly, efficient and personable. I would go back to this doctor again.
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.
Libby Rhee was amazing! She took the time to listen to my concerns and has helped me resolve my acne issues. Highly recommend her!
Excellent experience! Friendly staff and comfortable atmosphere. Dr. Rhee was friendly, professional, and fast. Scheduled an appointment Friday night and was seen Monday morning. In and out within a half hour, including registration.
My daughter and I felt comfortable right away. She was very thorough with her explanations. Everyone there was very friendly.
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.
Great service, caring staff.
Appointment was at 1:40 - I was out of there by 2:05. Everyone was friendly, and nobody cut anything off of me (my old dermatologist tried to cut off every mole she saw!).
After 5 years with another physician for the first time I feel I am really in good hands and may get help after all
My visit was great! Efficient and knowledgeable!
Very nice dr. Addressed the issue quickly with a solution and follow up appointment.
Dr. Rhee is really friendly. I only waited a few minutes to be seen and my appointment was very quick and to the point, which I appreciated it. I would highly recommend Dr. Rhee.
She is a very good doctor.
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.
Other than the long wait, Dr. Rhee and her assistant were very friendly and professional. Great bedside manner and quick diagnosis.
She was very knowledgeable as well as very accommodating.
First, I have to say Dr. Rhee was not really the problem. However, despite Dr Rhee bringing in 2 other people in with her without asking me if I felt comfortable while they trained new people while I was in my underwear, I felt the exam was rushed not very thurough. The front desk was very unprofessional. The overall manner of the front desk seemed bothered and unfriendly . Yelling back to other workers to take me back to be seen and talking about me as if we're not there while I waited over 40 mins to be seen.
She was professionally and pleasant.
Quick, efficient, polite and knowledgeable. Highly recommend.
Dr. Rhee is always thorough, courteous and informative. I would definitely recommend her without hesitation.
Had a great experience with my visit. Dr. Rhee is supper attentive and was very patient with all of my questions.
Quick, professional, friendly service once I was in the exam room. Dr Rhee has a great bedside manner and always remembers me even if it's been a long time (there are several locations and numerous doctors at this practice). The wait time was unacceptable though, especially considering I had an appointment and arrived on time. I waited 50 minutes for a 5-minute procedure. Unfortunately I may have to find another doctor so that I don't have to worry about being gone from work so much longer than anticipated.
She's great. Attentive. Smart. A pleasure.
I have been to see Dr. Libby Rhee a handful of times now and I have always been more than satisfied. Dr. Rhee does a really fantastic job of explaining her thought process and what she feels is the best course of action. Shes and the people that work at the upper west side practice are always friendly and make you feel comfortable and welcome.
I am never let down by them and I go about 2-3 times a year for screenings/follow ups. Always fantastic, quick, and thorough.
Excellent practice & outstanding practitioner
She's so knowledgeable and down to earth. I felt very comfortable and would definitely recommend her!
On my second visit, I was told that they no longer take my insurance. They failed to inform me of this prior to my arriving at the appointment (despite having confirmed several times through both Zocdoc and text). They had prescribed me some medication that I could no longer get information on so now I am in the position of having to find another doctor and potentially having to start all over again with my medication.
All of the docs and staff at Dr. Buka's locations rock. Dr. Rhee is no different.
Dr. Rhee was very professional and personable. She explained everything to me and suggested follow up care!
Overall the consultation with the doctor and the doctor was great. I was displeased with the really long wait.
Dr. Rhee was great! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great dermatologist. She was quick, friendly and answered all questions with a great smile and demeanor.
Dr. Buka's offices are terrible. They said I needed a prescription and that they'd send it to a specialty pharmacy to increase the chances of being approved. Three weeks went by and then never did. Had to chase them down, calling several times a day to get them to do what they said they were going to do. Long story short that medication didn't even work for my issue so they went to prescribe me a different medication through that pharmacy. It's been two days and they still haven't sent the prescription to the pharmacy. If your looking for adequate medical care, look elsewhere.
Dr. Rhee was super sweet and professional. She was straight to the point and catered my concerns to my needs and preference. I will have a follow up with her in a few weeks. Can't wait!
She was very pleasant and efficient and explained everything before proceeding.
She was kind listened to my issues worked hard on solving it for me
The wait was a bit long, but Dr. Rhee was professional, sweet and personable. I would 100% see her again. Thanks Dr. Rhee!
Had a very positive experience; I highly recommend Dr. Rhee and her staff. Her examination was thorough and she was kind.
She is efficient and quick. Be sure to ask any questions or make any requests, and she will fulfill them.
Check Yelp for more accurate reviews. A friend who worked with Dr. Rhee recommended her to me. After waiting about 45 minutes past my scheduled appointment time, I saw Dr. Rhee for about 5 minutes. In that span of time, I was prescribed two medications. Due to the rushed nature of the appointment, there was no mention of possible side effects and I did not feel like I had any opportunity to offer input or discuss my preferences. This practice is overbooked and expanding too quickly for their own good, and I have a feeling that is part of the reason you only spend a few minutes actually seeing the dermatologist. The administrative staff is a whole other story. Lots of dropped calls, long hold times and it's been 2 weeks since I received my prescription but have not been able to get it filled because the office has not had time to clear it with my insurance. Had high hopes, but left disappointed.
I liked her immediately, She was professional, friendly and quickly identified and formulated a treatment plan. I highly recommend her.
So far this is my second appointment and I love doctor Rhee, the Time wait is like 10 min at most, she listens, asks questions and explains everything very well, so far love it
Very caring and professional.
love her, so friendly and always remembers me even if it's been months since my last appointment. so many people have told my how clear my skin looks since I started seeing her. highly recommend!
Had a couple great appointments with Dr. Rhee. She's clearly a skilled dermatologist who shows great respect towards her patients.
Dr. Rhee was wonderfully personable, she did a mole check for me efficiently but without making me feel rushed, and she had such a wonderful energy--I felt like I was chatting with a new friend. The office was convenient, staff was very polite. I highly recommend Dr. Rhee and her team!
As someone with tattoos and who chooses not to remove body hair, I'd been super anxious about going to a dermatologist, as I didn't know what to expect. Libby quickly quashed those fears. Her staff was incredibly nice, tattoos were only mentioned to discuss their stories, and body hair wasn't brought up at all. Thanks for allowing me to feel safe in my own skin!
Personable. Very thorough.
Dr. Rhee and her staff were prompt and friendly. I'll happily return to their practice as needed!
She was very friendly and knowledgeable!
I've been going to Dr. Rhee for almost 2 years and I couldn't be more pleased with her, the team, and the facility. I highly recommend her as a dermatologist
Dr. Rhee was amiable but I felt a bit rushed during the appointment. She spent only a couple of minutes with me and left the room quickly. She was quick to bring up medications but didn't provide any information as to their use, side effects, etc. I felt as if she didn't care. The front desk staff were curt and I found their appearance to be unprofessional. Dr. Rhee and her staff were very insistent on using their specific pharmacy, claiming that what she prescribed wouldn't be available anywhere else. This is total nonsense. I would have preferred to use my regular pharmacy but I wasn't even given the chance to discuss it. I will not be returning to this dermatologist.
not transparent about costs. you're in for a surprise when you see the bill!
From the very start of the appointment Dr.Rhee was very friendly and professional, she made me feel at ease immediately. She answered all of my questions and came up with a plan for my treatment that I was very happy with. She is very knowledgeable and took into account my past treatments which I liked very much. I did not feel rushed and I felt like Dr.Rhee really cared about my concerns. The staff was also very helpful and friendly throughout the visit. The facility was very nice as well. I had a great experience from start to finish and would absolutely recommend her to any of my family or friends. Thank you!
Libby was great but the front desk staff were a little disorganized. They let 3 people go ahead of me who all had appointments after mine which meant I had to wait almost an hour. Then when they started to let a fourth person go I had to speak up and say that my appointment was supposed to have been an hour ago. They quickly corrected the mistake and were polite but it was still a little aggravating.
Dr. Rhee is definitely a doctor in New York that I trust as she gives very personalized treatment best suited for your skin/situation. She's a great listener, compassionate and answers all of your questions. She stays on top of the latest developments in the dermatology market so you know you're getting all of the best treatment options to-date.
Dr.Rhee was very kind and very professional.She was very thorough in my exam and my treatment was virtually painless.Inwould recommend her highly.
Dr. Rhee was great and knew exactly what I needed. One thing I wish she spent a little more time on the side affects of the medication I was prescribed but other than that she is a great doctor.
I found Libby to be very professional and personable. She smiles and thats a good thing...
As a first time patient, Libby was friendly, made me feel at ease about the exam, and provided clear guidance on how I should check my moles in between visits to the office. I had a much better patient experience with Libby by comparison to previous exams I have had in the past. Libby made the trip to NYC worth my travel time from Philadelphia.
Dr. Rhee was absolutely FANTASTIC! She was so kind and made me feel comfortable right away. Didn't waste a second of time- was extremely professional and informed. Was the most pleasant doctor's visits I've ever had- feels like you're in a spa, the secretaries are extremely nice and pleasant, and Dr. Rhee and her asst. just made my day. Highly recommend!
Libby Rhee is great. Very friendly, very knowledgeable. Highly recommend her.
The office was a little difficult to find but it once I did it was extremely pleasant and quiet. Dr. Rhee was very comforting and sweet during my skin screening. She welcomed my questions and was very body positive. Her assistant was just as charismatic and helpful in detailing my prescription. Would definitely go back and have already personally referred her to friends.
The wait time was very short. She was very knowledgeable and thorough. She explained everything in detail and answered all of my questions and even gave me recommendations on other products to use! Definitely going back!
She spent an inordinate amount of time with me and had a medical assistant help me to iron out issues with a specialty pharmacy that did not want to authorize a prescription medication.
Great doctor! My sister noticed a mole on my back that didn't look good so I went on ZocDoc and was able to get an appointment the same day. When I arrived, the office had all my forms ready that I pre-filled out on ZocDoc and she saw me almost right away. She gave me a full screening and also noticed the mole so scraped it and sent it away to be biopsied. The pathology came back abnormal so I went back today so that she could make sure she got all of it. Same thing - saw me quickly and I was out the door with plenty of time on my meter for a trip to Trader Joe's! Highly recommend Dr. Rhee. Great doctor and very warm.
Very professional and experienced with cosmetic dermatology!
Libby has a great personality! She is very sweet and friendly, and informative.
It was a great experience. She was confident and efficient which helped give me peace of mind during a very frustrating skin rash. I had been to two doctors who weren't able to narrow down the cause or even really say with any confidence where it was coming from. Thank you Dr. Rhee!
She was very kind and comforting about my situation. I felt very relieved by the end of my appointment. I will absolutely use her for all of my future dermatological needs.
Went in for an annual skin screening. Dr. Rhee was very friendly and professional. She answered all my questions. Appointment was quick and easy. Would go to her again.
She was very friendly and kind. But do not expect a doctor who wants to really listen and hear about your concerns. She is very quick and short. Make sure you know exactly what you want and are able to elucidate that. She was just very quick to prescribe without actually taking through things. That is NOT to say that she is bad, just not ideal.
She was excellent!
I think Dr. Rhee is a great medical as well as cosmetic dermatologist. She has a wonderful eye and is a perfectionist in a good way. I've been to a lot of derms for minor cosmetic adjustments and by far she is the best!
Very knowledgeable and professional and a very good hearted person. Highly recommended!
ZocDoc very clearly stated that Dr. Rhee accepted my insurance in-network. I went to the office twice, once for my son and once for myself, and both times they asked me to pay the in-network co-pay which I did. However it seems they gave inaccurate information on ZocDoc and at the office and I'm now receiving bills and collection letters and my insurance will not pay as they said the information on their site is accurate and I shouldn't have used ZocDoc. I called the office and the first time spoke with someone, but when I called back there was no answer. Don't use this doctor unless you have double checked with your insurance first. I wish I hadn't gone to see her. It's costing me tons of money that I didn't need to pay.
Dr. Rhee was patient with my special needs, and really took the time to make me comfortable. The office environment was pleasant, and her staff attentive. I was greeted immediately, they had my information from ZocDoc ready and handy. It was a great experience overall, especially since I was really nervous before!
Dr. Libby was very pleasant and was able to diagnose my issue immediately (had suffered kind of a wrong diagnosis by another doctor so this was a big deal)! I would highly recommend anyone thinking of a skin care doctor to pay Dr. Libby Rhee a visit!
She was great, I was in and out within 40 minutes. She was polite, and listened to questions, without wasting any time.
Dr Rhee is friendly and professional, thorough, always on time, office staff are great.
I got there early thinking that I would have to fill out a ton of paperwork. Most of the required paperwork was filled out online through Zocdoc. The office staff was friendly and helpful. (A smile is a beautiful thing.) Dr. Rhee was great. She made sure that i understood the treatment options available to me and was respectful of my knowledge of my condition. She made me feel cared for and comfortable.
I was seen right away (no wait time). And Dr. Rhee was very nice, friendly, and helpful. I highly recommend- I will be going back.
She was very nice and professional, answered all of my questions, and got me in and out as quickly as possible. Would recommend to anyone!
Dr. Rhee was wonderful. Very approachable, took time to answer questions, very thorough. High recommend!
The South Street Seaport office is very clean and beautiful! The wait time is about 20 minutes, mostly because I come on the dot. The nurses are so polite and friendly, and last but not least the doctor is amazing! She knows what she's doing and very very kind!
Dr. Rhee and the staff there were so helpful, and they all have bright personalities. I felt secure from beginning to end. Found a new happy place!
Phenomenal physician with great bedside manner and sincere care for her patients
She is very efficient and knowledgeable ,and she definitely helped me with the issue I came with . However , I was mostly helped by her assistant , doctor came in and out of the room really quickly .Felt a little bit impersonal and very rushed. I had whole list of questions I wanted to ask her but didn't really have a chance because she exited the room quickly once we went over the main concern I came with .
She is an excellent doctor!
Dr Rhee and Staff - highly recommended. I saw 2 doctors and suffered through 3 weeks of symptoms before I came here! Not your average Derm office - cool downtown vibe!
The last time I came to this office to see another Doctor the wait time was outrageous ( almost an hour for a 15 minute appt.) but this time I only waited about 15 minutes. Dr. Rhee was very nice, explained everything and took her time answering my questions. I was much happier with this visit. The receptionists at this location were also much friendlier and attentive than last time, this office seems like they are stepping up their game.
Dr Rhee just so knowledgeable
This was my first appointment with Dr. Rhee. I felt she did rush through the skin check a bit, for someone who has never had one. She was very professional though and explained everything clearly. They brought in a PA without asking though which I did not appreciate. Overall would recommend.
Wonderful experience - would visit again for any issues. Thanks!
A little rushed, but hopefully she was just very knowledgable and knew what to prescribe for me.
friendly, fast, professional.
No apology for the wait.
D. Libby is the best I would love to see her again.
Dr. Rhee was great, however my biopsy results never arrived. This was after a 2 week wait. I was supposed to receive a call that day, no one called. I called next day and was PROMISED a call. At 4 PMI called again only to be told that the technician was on vacation and would be back after the 4th. A 3 week + wait for a biopsy in my opinion stinks ,to put it mildly. I hope they honor their commitment to have results on the 5th.
Was attended right away. Very pleasant & professional. I was treated & out by a 1/2 hour.
Felt a little too quick for a full body skin cancer check.
I have gone to several dermatologists and they each told me to just keep the area moisturized. Dr. Rhee was the only doctor to actually treat my leg. I am so pleased with the results. She is great.
It was good she was friendly and explained things pretty well.
Dr. Rhee was very professional and courteous. Quick in-and-out for an annual skin screening.
The office is super nice and Dr. Rhee was very helpful. she was able to explain to me in detail about my acne issues and created a plan for me to start treating my acne.
Dr. Rhee is a total professional! I consider her as my dermatologist. The office is smart, clean & stylish. The staff is friendly & attentive.
It was a great visit!
She was great!
Dr. Rhee was wonderful and helpful. I'll be seeing her in another 6 weeks for a follow-up. She's answered all of my questions and concerns and does a great job at recommending good products for my skin.
The wait time for this location is fair. This is my third visit with Dr. Rhee. It is evident that she is very compassionate about her work. Her bed side manner was superb!
She is such a delightful Doctor who manages to make you feel at ease even when she is removing your most beloved beauty marks to screen for cancer! I actually love going to see her. Great bedside manner and all around real caring medical professional.
Just in for a yearly skin screening. The office was small and cute, nicely decorated, and the staff was also nice. Dr. Rhee was kind and efficient, made me feel comfortable. Likely to return next year.
I feel good about the consultation. I will however have to wait to see the results of the treatment.
I completely loved everything from the moment I stepped in till the moment I left. The staff was very friendly and helpful . She knocked before comming in and introduced herself in a very professional matter and even shook my hand. I'm deff comming back and telling my family and friends all about it.
Overall my experience with dr. Rhee was good. I've seen her once before and the care was satisfactory. She was brief. Once she made the diagnosis, she recommended that I take two prescriptions. The office was already fully aware of what my medical coverage is and should have known when the prescriptions were being put in that there would be an issue. I, having no knowledge of an issue with pre-authorization, traveled all the way to the pharmacy to collect the medications only to find that the oral medication which is most crucial to my recovery was unable to be filled without a pre-authorization. When I attempted to caled the dr. s office back I got voicemail. I left a very detailed message about the fact I could not fill the prescription and I needed a pre-authorization. No one called me back. No one made any adjustment to the prescription at the pharmacy. I made a second phone call the next day requesting the same thing on voice messaging because no one would pick up, and once again I was ignored the prescription was abandoned by the office. I made a second Journey to the pharmacy to learn that no correction was made, no pre-authorization was attempted and I am still unable to pick this medication up. It further ingrained my belief I had at the office that I was being rushed through the process and the concern for me was slightly minimal. Please intervene with this office on my behalf and request that my pre-authorization be done so that I can finally received this medication. Thank you
Dr. Rhee was very professional, and down to earth. Great bedside manner, made me feel very comfortable.
In and out professionalism
Dr. Rhee was wonderful. She answered all of my questions and even made some suggestions for products I should try. I will be seeing her again in 3 weeks. This first appointment was a great start to what I hope will continue to be an excellent doctor-patient relationship.
Never again- This is the first time I had such a bad experience in a clinic. The minute I entered the team was unpleasant, I waited for 30 min for a 5 minutes of observation. Then they didn't send the pharmacy my prescription- the pharmacy (amazing) team and myself had to call them 5 times to update it and it took them 3 days to take care of it. the customer service was so bad and rude. Save yourself the trouble and look for a real clinic
Great bedside manner, great doctor, kind of a hurried/impersonal & very LARGE practice though. Dr. Rhee always makes me feel extremely comfortable and my acne has considerably improved under her care.
She's very professional and very dedicated.
Dr. Rhea prescribed a new medication for me. When I went to pick the prescription up the next day, it had not been faxed over. When I stopped in to inform the receptionist, she snapped, “You didn’t have to come in to tell us that. The pharmacist could have called.” (The pharmacy is a block from her office.) I told the receptionist that Dr. Rhea prescribed medications that my insurance company would not cover. Later the pharmacist called Dr. Rhea’s office and was put on hold for over 30 minutes before hanging up. I called later and was put on hold for over 15 minutes then was disconnected. I will search for a new dermatologist, because the office is so hard to reach.
Dr. Rhee is the best!
She was very nice and extremely efficient. Very knowledgeable and gave me different options to help treat my skin condition.
I arrived late due to some confusion with the website booking and had to wait a bit. Consultation went well.
Best dermatologist I've been to, very honest and friendly. My previous dermatologists always seemed like they were in a huge rush, constantly had med students who they talked to more than me, and it was intimidating trying to talk to them. Dr. Rhee is so sweet and makes me feel so much better about my skin issues.
Dr. Rhee was great, she answered all my questions and was very pleasant to deal with.
She very beautiful of course nice and cares for patient i disclosed information in whicg i feel is confident and trust her in that matter will go the extra mile to help clients
She knows what she's doing. Right before I saw Libby, I'd seen a terrible dermatologist who told me I had psoriasis and really freaked me out. He gave me shampoo treatment, which was making my skin worse, and Libby quickly corrected that and said, "No, you just have acne." She quickly treated it, and I've been acne free for several months now. She's amazing, and I highly recommend her.
She's great, wish my appointment was a little more on schedule but once I saw her she was great. And the clinic was very nice
Dr. Rhee was fantastic! Very kind and attentive. She answered all my questions and was very reassuring. The wait time was only about 5-10 minutes. I would highly recommend Dr. Rhee.
Dr. Rhee is very knowledgable and efficient, which are my two main concerns when visiting a healthcare provider. The wait time was minimal, and the staff was polite.
I highly recommend Dr Rhee. Had a wonderful bedside manner. Easy to talk to. Didn't feel rushed. And even felt comfortable discussing an embarrassing skin issue. Really happy I found her!
One of the worst doctor's visits I have ever had. Dr. Rhee was abrupt and didn't answer my questions fully. She was in a big rush and cut me off when I tried to speak. I called twice to ask a follow-up question and she never called me back. Disaster. Would never go back.
Dr.Rhee didn't want to find and cure causes, she was rather concentrated on treating results. She prescribed an antibiotic that destroyed my digestive system. All other medicine she prescribed had no result. She was in a hurry and didn't want to devote enough time to me. I'll never come back.
The office is incredibly tiny, but has modern decor and is very clean. The receptionist was not particularly helpful, and you should know that you do have to specify if you wish to see the doctor alone. They usually have a second pair of eyes in the room, taking notes and whatnot. This was a surprise to me on my first visit. Overall though, I thought Dr. Rhee was very kind and professional.
Dr Rhee is amazing. She has been so kind to me and I love the clinic. Amazing service.
Clean and professional environment! Highly recommend !
She was really quick and very nice!
Dr. Rhee had superb bedside manner and was able to perform quick but thorough examinations!
Dr. Rhee is friendly, professional and prompt. I would recommend her to anyone.
Dr. Rhee is a sweet heart and an facial artist. I highly recommend her.
Dr Rhee was wonderful, took my questions and concerns seriously and provided quick and thoughtful plans of action. She is personable, friendly, and trustworthy.
Dr. Rhee was kind, caring, and attentive to my specific needs. She is a total sweetheart! We need more doctors like her!
The visit was a rush, no sure why the office was empty. The medical assistance spend more time with me asking about my medical history. Doctor prescribed medicine in which my insurance did not covered. This visit was a waste of time.
Had to wait a good while, and when Dr. Rhee did see me she rushed through the exam. She looked at my rash for maybe two seconds, asked two questions, and prescribed me an ointment that turned out to be laughably unaffordable (it wasn't even stocked by my pharmacy because normal people can't afford that). I ended up getting a cortizone cream which did the trick. And later realized that the assistant had told her the wrong insurance info (though I'd provided my card at the beginning of the appointment..). And, to top it off, with no warning or notice, months later I got a debt collection notice from a third party collector for my appointment. At the time I'd paid the co-pay fee and they'd ensured me that everything else was covered by my insurance. I called in and the receptionist was no help, telling me to take it up with my insurance (??), so I just paid the fee because arguing with insurance is like walking a mile on Legos. So all in all I paid a lot for a lazy and disrespectful diagnosis and prescription that I couldn't use, got a debt collection on my credit with no warming. Unless you're mega rich and just want cosmetic surgery, this isn't the place for you.
She was AMAZING..
Not great bedside manners, seemed in a rush and not very thorough.
Very nice and professional. She took it upon herself to suggest another doctor for a concern I had in a different field which I appreciated.
Everyone was very courteous and professional. My wait time was less than ten minutes.
She was very nice
I am very pleasant with the experience I had with Dr Rhee. She explained to me all my options including the cost associated with them.
I liked Dr. Rhee very much...she was friendly, helpful and did not rush me...she answered my questions professionally. I would recommend her highly. Her assistant today on 12/15/15 (blond woman) was also very nice and professional.
Absolutely great! Dr. Rhee was really smart, patient, and quick. She did everything efficiently and her office was really nice!
I couldn't really afford it. Had I known, I may have gone somewhere else. Good visit though
Overall she was a great doctor, however I did feel incredibly rushed and as if she could not wait to leave. It felt like I had to squeeze in my questions and after ever response she wanted to cut the conversation off. I was late to my appointment however, so maybe this was a factor?
Dr. Rhee was awesome... Super personable, has great bedside manner, and really knows her stuff. Glad to have found a great dermatologist!
Dr. Rhee was so sweet! I will definitely be going back to see her again. She knew exactly what I needed and I was in and out quickly.
The staff was very friendly and welcoming.
I just want to write a review so that people don't have to face the same problems and headaches that I ran into. The doctor was fine, but the billing department was terrible. They filed for insurance months later, and because of that, I have to pay hundreds of dollars out of pocket instead of having every covered by my HRA account. Needless to say, they lost my business.
Fun office, knowledgeable staff on UWS.
She was very personable and friendly!
I've seen Dr. Rhee a few times for pretty basic issues (eczema and acne) and overall I recommend her. She's very nice but my only criticism is I've felt a little bit rushed out, like she makes her recommendation without spending enough time examining me and/or asking questions. She's very quick to prescribe medication and I've felt like her diagnosis is a little abrupt. That being said, I've experienced pretty good results/haven't had any bad experiences with what she's recommended. Also, I've been to the Greenwich Village and UWS offices and both are beautiful (and actually cool in that they don't feel like standard doctors' offices), and I've been seen promptly each time.
Everything was fine.
Amazing as always
It was my first visit. Just a little wait. (10 mins. after filing/registering in the system) So definitely not too long. Dr.Rhee was very nice and attentive. She heard my problems and was working with me to get some kind of remedy without it effecting my wallet(aka what works best with my insurance). Will be coming in again after I get my referral!
I like her shes good cant wait to come back i believe she can help me with this.
Very friendly and personable. Asked underlying questions before immediately prescribing anything.
Nice office. Doctor and assistant were both very professional, quick, and helpful.
Dr. Rhee put me at ease immediately and made sure I was given the best care possible. Highly recommend.
It was disappointing because I was diagnosed with psoriasis, but she did not take the time to explain what it was, and what my options where. I ended up going to a different dermatologist to get better treatment.
I came in about an hour early but was seen within 25 minutes which is awesome considering I arrived super early. Very clean which is a MUST for me. A little small but well arranged, no complaints as far as tidiness. Front desk was professional, nice and sassy! Medical assistant closely listened to my concerns and jotted everything down in the system. Dr. Rhee was super kind & professional. She was well engaged as I discussed what was going on. She was quite confident which I appreciate. I have a follow up in about to two weeks to see if treatment is working. As of now, I will recommend. Hope Dr. Rhee is the Dermatologist I've been seeking! It's looking good so far :)
She was very nice and patience
Was fine, kind and clear.
I visited the Upper West Side location. Dr. Rhee is wonderful. She made me feel comfortable, was straight forward, and answered all my questions. I didn't have to wait long at all and my appointment did not feel rushed. It was a great experience.
Dr. Rhee is my go-to dermatologist and I won't ever see anyone else. Love her!! She's very sweet and she isn't judgmental like other doctors can be.
Dr. Rhee was empathetic and approachable. The visit was very brief, but I felt I got my concerns addressed. Also, I appreciated the funky office décor - it did make me smile (and relax).
She was just awesome and made me feel really comfortable
Amazing as always! She's so nice and informative! The office is really nice and pleasant atmosphere.
She's amazing. So pleasant and knowledgeable. Beautiful office. Overall amazing experience.
Dr.Rhee was very professional and made me feel at ease.I would recommend her to anyone.
Very descriptive to understand my matter and also gave me alternative measures and statistics.
Very professional. A little too fast I would think, I felt somewhat rushed.
Great, Highly recommend
Prompt, professional, thorough Would definitely recommend Matt g
I was very disappointed in her professional advice. We spent a lot of time oohing and aahing over her dog, and in the end, I did not feel like she understood what was really needed for our issue. Overall, I was very unsatisfied and will not go back.
Didn't know what to expect. Really appreciated the info and skin exam. I think it was the passing without issue that made it a good visit for me. A bit of a wait and a very fast visit, so I wasn't too happy about the wait, but that sorta thing happens, but that's the only reason I subtracted 1 star.
We're regulars, my daughter and i. Shes very good and pleasant. Always smiling. She's just the most adorable person. The staff is always courteous as well.
She's a great doctor. Very approachable, knowledgeable. Inventive thinking, tries various methods to improve the patient outcome.
She was super efficient and personable. I got all of my questions answered and all my needs met.
Effective, fast and informative.
Very professional. Would recommend to anyone.
Her office was clean and efficient. They provide free water and seltzer while you wait. I loved the homage to the east village i grew up to love.
Dr. Rhee was very thorough, addressed any questions or concerns and has an excellent bedside manner. Additionally, everyone in the office was very pleasant and apologized for any delays.
She was very nice and approachable.
She was engaging and a good listener. She didn't feel rushed and took her time to explain the meds. She was friendly compared to my previous dermatologist. With Dr Libby i felt connected and that she cared which i appreciated.
She's awesome and so calm. She really knows her stuff
She was a little cold and rushed to get me out of there as fast as possible. She directed my questions to the nurse.
It was a very short visit. I'm hoping it means that the doctor was efficient and not that it was a perfunctory check-up. I wish she had stayed for at least a minute after she was done so I could ask questions...
Absolutely a great experience!!! I strongly recommend. She is timely and thorough. Strongly recommend.
Very friendly but all business and suggestions seemed very off the shelf and not individual. However, Dr. Rhee was very thorough and there were no major issues to spend time on.
She is great
I absolutely loved my first visit with Dr. Libby Rhee. She made me feel extremely comfortable and really listened to me. I feel that many derms I've seen in the past have tried to get me out of their exam room as quickly as possible - but not Dr. Rhee. She was warm and endearing, and I am excited to have a great doctor to help me get my skin back on track!
Dr. Rhee is professional, friendly, and all around exceptional. I have been to several different doctors and she is by far the best. Thank you Dr. Rhee for making sure that my visits to your office are pleasurable and thorough.
Exceptionally skilled, wonderful attitude, and everybody in that office is sweet, caring, and professional. Her skin is an inspiration!
Dr Rhee was very professional and delivered exceptional care. Highly recommend and I'm already looking forward to coming back and finish the treatment recommended.
Very pleasant to talk with and doesn't waste your time -- great experience!
I had a great experience with Dr. Libby, very caring and unstanding doctor who I would recommend highly.
She's great diagnosing and treating. Friendly professional reassuring
dr. rhee was very knowledgable and friendly and was very efficient. only thing is she seemed very rushed which i understand cause she might have many other patients to get to. will continue you to see her
Doctor Rhee is warm, personable and knows exactly what she is doing. If you're in the hunt for a solid dermatologist, I highly recommend you check her out.
Communication issues with the lab and the doctor has left my condition with no noticeable improvements for over a month with still no diagnosis. Office did mediocre job updating me on my status. Not pleased overall.
Excellent patient rapport; courteous and efficient at all times.
Was only seen by Dr Libby for about 5mins. Was given a diagnosis and prescription on Wednesday July 30th took it in the following day to cvs. A week later no prescription because her office was swamped with making phone calls to insurance company was told this by her receptionist give 3 days 2 weeks later same thing when I went to check in on the prescription her office still didn't call my insurance as of August 24th I never received the prescription for my diagnosis nor did I receive a follow up from her office would never go back to that office again
Dr. Rhee is very professional and also a down to earth person who doesn't just see you as a patient but also a person, been going to her for a while now and very happy going to her. I will not see any other Doctor for dermatology.
She was friendly and eager to help. She was thorough with her treatment. I would want to see her again.
Very efficient and quick
Dr. Rhee was extremely personable and put us right at ease. She took her time to explain what she was doing, what she thought and how treatment would be handled. She was especially good for Liam, who is 11 years old. And she was fine with seeing me (adult) and Liam back to back. I'd highly recommend Dr. Rhee.
It was great. Very attentative
I like that she is fast, you have to be specific what you want. Then she will do that run away. But…I never wrote a review about her job, but this time I decided to write how she was with me. She spent time with me only 3-4 minutes (which as always). I had some problem with my skin, she said injection will help. She did it and said "see you next 3 weeks" and closed the door front of my face. That's it? I was about to ask some question about current visit, but couldn't. She didn't say bye even :( I know there is a lot of clients are waiting out there. But it doesn't mean you have to cut current patience's time. We are all paying doesn't matter how: with cash or insurance. We are paying. Listen us, why we came here to you, that means we have a problem. We were with this problem long time. More than you spent time for us. Don't you think it would be nice spend time for us and ask if we have any other questions? Let's be polite and professional. Because we are all getting paid because of clients. I work with patience too, it's not only you.
I went in for a procedure. After seeing Libby about 12 times for something (which I cannot say?) and what she did clearly didn't work. I again asked for the actual procedure. A different doctor at Dr Buka's office performed it. I cared for my stitches impeccably! When I went in 2 weeks later, the Doctor never even checked me out. The nurse assistant came in and snipped the stitch and ripped them out of my leg. It was so painful! This cause the healed wound to rip right back open. When the doctor came in she said she didn't have any time to stitch me back up, which she should have! Instead she put a piece of tape on it and said it should hold for 2 weeks. It actually came of within the next 2 hours. I went back 2 days later and they said it looked infected now and that I should see what happens and wear a band aid and come back in 2 weeks. Now my leg is too healed to suture back up yet there is still a gaping wound. It will scar and look much worse than the original issue, I imagine. When I tried to go back they said my insurance hadn't paid so they refused to see me. This was their doing!! They should have taken an extra 10 minutes after the nurse ripped out my stitch since all of this happened. And yes... they were aware. This place has done nothing but milked my insurance, frustrated me to no end and wasted about 30 hours of my life. I do not recommend this place whatsoever. I have also called Dr Buka twice and he never returned my call and the receptionists are rude.
She's so nice and alert. Sensitive to what I breed and have great referrals.
The Dr. Was very quicks and didn't really have time for me. The assistant was more accessible and informative.
Very pleasant person. The visit itself was quite short, and she did not go into great detail when it came to my ailment. Front staff was somewhat rude and inarticulate. I will continue treatment with her, regardless.
She was very prepared for my follow up. Knew exactly what we discussed previous visit. Also attentive to any questions I had.
awesome ! face is much clearer
The waiting room would benefit from having readung material. There was inly one old People magazine.
She was very interested and patient with my concerns.
She's very nice, caring and professional.
Very professional and friendly.
beautiful offices, but I felt like Dr. Rhee was very perfunctory during our appointment - instead she was chatty with the assistant who joined us in the exam room. The doctor barely looked at my skin before telling me that there was nothing wrong (and the condition that I thought I had and still do have was gone) - there was no way she could have been accurate without taking a close look under light (and the exam room was not well lit). I suspect this place might be better with younger clientele (as in children).
Just don't do it. The staff are not helpful with anything. All they do is push products.
fine but the music in the waiting room was loud and intrusive and there was not one single magazine to read.
I called my husband the moment I left the office to tell him what a great visit I had. I felt like dr Rhee was really listening to me and helped me form a course of treatment I was comfortable with. Highly recommend her!
She was great. Very sweet and attentive
Very nice and professional.
Fast, friendly, professional, inspires confidence
I've been equally impressed with both doctors I've seen with Bobby Burka. Both were very clear, explained the options, and got right to business with any procedures. I felt right at ease and well taken care of.
First time going, very professional and prompt.
She is very knowledgeable and helpful. Such a great doctor!
I think the wait time was unreasonable for a 5 minute time with the dr. I think that scheduling 10 minutes for each patient makes the dr. late for every appt and it is inconsiderate for the patient. It does not respect that patient's time is also valuable. I find this to be poor patient service.
Dr. Rhee was great. My daughter was intimidated going in but the doctor was sweet and positive. All around a good experience.
Dr. Libby Rhee is very pleasant and a thorough physician.
I think she's highly competent and am happy to trust her skill in dealing with a problem that has bothered me and affected my life style for years.
The office was clean and welcoming, and Libby was very personable. She addressed my issues with understanding, ease, professionalism, and swiftness. I'm going back for a follow up appointment in a couple weeks.
I felt rushed by Dr. Rhee. It seemed like she had more important things to do. She gave me two prescriptions neither of which my insurance covered. I got practically nothing out of the appointment. I would not go back to this dermatology office.
While the office space is clean and attractive, it is tiny. And I was a little put off by that form they make you sign that you would go to arbitration rather than sue if there's a dispute--is everyone doing that? But I really liked Dr. Rhee and will return.
Dr. Rhee was great - warm, friendly and very knowledgeable. I was very pleased with the care I received and would definitely go back.
She is very professional. She answered my questions and everything she said to me made prefect sense. I really sensed that she cared and was a combination of confident and kind.
Prompt, professional and thorough.
Can't say enough good things about Dr. Rhee, other than after 10 months and 6 different doctors misdiagnosing me Dr. Rhee took one look at me and knew what I ACTUALLY had. She put me on meds that cleared up my condition almost overnight. I only wish I would have seen her 10 months earlier.
Libby was awesome. Quick and to the point. I had a few bits and bobs to check up on, having not been to a doc in way too long, and she was totally patient with going down the long list, finding the easiest and quickest ways to get things fixed. Big smile on her face the whole time and her med. assistants who I think are in training were super nice too.
The wait was ridiculously long (over an hour with no apology of any kind), but Dr Rhee was excellent.
Dr. Rhee is great. I've recommended her to many people. She's really nice, friendly and personable.
They need to work on this!
The appointment seemed really rushed, like Dr. Rhee and her assistants didn't have very much time for me. I realize my reason for my appointment was pretty routine but my time is valuable and I don't want to visit a doctor that doesn't think I'm worth her time. That being said, she was polite and to the point but next time, a little less rushing around and a little more listening would be nice.
I thought my initial was pretty good. I really like once I see the receptionist to be called right in but I am not that difficult. The office is really cool and I felt like she knew what she was talking about.
Very friendly doctor. As a first timer, you always want to connect and trust your doctor. Dr. Rhee is amazing! Making her my regular dermatologist.
I have confidence in the doctor and she is very nice. Very nice office and staff, too.
Dr. Libby was personable, polite, prompt and professional. Couldn't ask for more :)
Dr. Rhee was awesome! She was extremely thorough, personable, and made me feel valued. It was nice to carry on a legitimate conversation that didn't involve the check-in. I'll definitely be going back to her in the future!
Completely pleasant, will definitely return.
I was in and out of Dr. Rhee's office - which is great for me as I went right after work. She was very accurate with my diagnosis and prescribed me the perfect medication. I have struggled with acne for years and was only able to get it under control after seeing Dr. Rhee.
I took my teenage boy to Dr. Rhee. She was great and totally easy to talk to. She spent a lot of time with him.
Doctor Libby was great. She came up with a new treatment plan for me and gave me some hope :) The nursing assistant did not introduce herself and looked annoyed by my questions.
Great doctor she was nice and kind and took good care of me
it was great, and the biopsy process was about as painless as possible! but the wait time was extremely long.
She was very laid back and nice. Made me feel very comfortable. The office was also very nice.
She's so incredibly nice! She also explains things well, and her staff is very cool. I really liked the way the office looked, too, for whatever that's worth.
Dr. Rhee was very nice but her exam, diagnosis and explanation of prescriptions took no more than 4-5 minutes. I am a first year med student and was excited to watch her in action and ask questions but there was no time to do anything. She prescribed me 2 drugs and went over them so quickly that I couldn't even remember what they were and had to ask the nurse to come back and re-explain them, and then tell me what the actual diagnoses were - something the doctor never told me. The place didn't even seem overbooked so I don't quite understand why this was so rushed.
I feel as though she is always anxious to get the appointment over with. When I ask questions, she seems quick to give a generic response and kind of disregard my specific history. I often catch her trying to walk out the door while in mid-conversation. Don't get me wrong, her medical knowledge and bedside manner are top notch, I just wish I were made to feel more like she cared.
Dr. Rhee was professional, thorough, and answered any question I had for her. The assistant who helped with my exam was great too.
she was really cool and personable and put me at ease about what i had come in for. the office itself was beautiful and friendly too. and they even sent me a birthday card.
Love her, she's great. Knowledgeable and up to date.
Office was easy to find, small but comfortable. The staff was nice and knowledgeable, they even offered to write me a sick note for work (which I needed!) when I forgot to ask. Dr. Rhee was really warm and welcoming, made me feel comfortable (as comfortable as I could be, considering...). Privided a very casual & friendly environment, not uptight or stuffy. She seemed confident and knowledgeable, prescribed me a few different medications and we have a follow up appointment - she will definitely be my go-to dermatologist in NY!
The doctor was super approachable and nice! I felt comfortable. The wait time was fantastic, and I didn't have to do any paper work since i used ZocDoc. This is the second time I've gone to this doctor, and I would highly recommend.
She was really thorough and wonderful to talk to! Listened to a whole laundry list of issues!
Dr. Rhee was OK, but I would not recommend this office due to its questionable billing practices. I visited the office in Greenwich Village three times last year. I paid my co-pay each time before going in, but I paid twice with a debit card and once with cash. A couple of months later I received a bill for an unpaid copay. I no longer had my receipt so I decided to pay it to get the bill cleared. I thought that would be the last time I ever heard from this business, but a full year after I mailed them my payment, I received yet another bill for a copay. I called the billing department and explained that I had paid the copay twice, that I would be searching my records and sending them proof, and suggested that they get their billing records in order. Exactly a week after my call, I received a letter from a collection agency demanding the copay. I believe they went to the billing agency vindictively because I complained. I don't know what to do--will I be paying copays endlessly for the rest of my life now for that visit? Its Kafkaesque.
She was very efficient
We love you Dr.Rhee Tarik ??
Dr. Rhee is GREAT! Makes you feel completely calm and comfortable. Erica was with Dr Rhee today and she is fantastic too! I love this office and highly recommend Dr Rhee.
Dr. Rhee was great when I visited her 3 times for a skin check and mole removal. The wait was a little longer than I would have liked but she is a great doctor although I felt she was a little rushed. I have to say that the office she works at is absolutely awful so it is too bad she works for this practice as she is a great doctor. The nurses were wonderful too. Dr. Bobby Buka's practice that she works for is awful. The management and billing is completely corrupt. Aside from countless privacy violations I witnessed, they continued to try and bill me for services my insurance also paid for. My point being, pay attention to your bill and make sure you're not double paying them! Sadly, I will never be back after such an awful, awful experience here but it is at no fault of Dr. Rhee.
Very prompt. Friendly, I would definitely consider her as my go-to dermatologist if I had the need for one.
Dr Rhee was one of the nicest doctors I have ever met. The staff is very nice as well.
Dr Rhee was excellent and very efficient. She never made me feel self conscious or bad about my skin. She was encouraging and friendly. I would recommend her .
Love Dr Rhee. Great bedside manner, listens to concerns & offers great advice. Never pushy. And if you want to clear up under eye circles, see her for injections
it would be amazing if the stuff working at Bobby Buka become more welcoming. The doctor is amazing but everyone needs to work more on the way they treat clients. Just a smile would do a lot.
Very kind and seemed very knowledgeable as she was able to diagnose me immediately. I was nervous and uncomfortable because of my rash and her friendliness was comforting. I did call with a follow up question and haven't heard back but it was late and I am sure I will hear back - also I was able to google and find the answer but just kind of wanted to hear her opinion.
Best derm I've seen so far. Fantastic bedside manner, which I find lacking from many dermatologists. She was pleasant and informative and the wait was almost nonexistent for wednesday at 6.
She was kind and knowledgeable, but al little rushed. She was assuring me with positive outlook on the oucome of other treaments she can offer to fix my problem. But she was honest in saying that we need to another couple of weeks to really understand what the problems are
Efficient, accurate, compassionate! Very happy about my visit today.
She friendly & professional ?? made my nervousness as ease
This review is not directed towards Libby Rhee, More so towards the office. Ive been to this office 3 times before. The wait is always long. However, this time when I arrived they informed me my appt was canceled. I dont know who must of done that. They asked if I wanted to reschedule or wait. I said, well im here so I will wait. I arrived at 6 and by 730 the woman who came in after me was called in. I jumped up and said "hey wait a minute I was here before her." The receptionist said yes but your appt was canceled. I told her that was of no fault of my own and you shouldve accommodated me. The office in general is totally unprofessional since they dont know how to schedule their clients. Always a long wait. I wanted to cry because I waited so long and I had a class for 830 so I walked out.
She is great if you are looking for beauty treatments. When it comes to actual skin related medical issues and appropriate medical care I'd highly advise you to seek out a different dermatological professional. I find her carelessness and immature reaction shocking and unsettling. She is however great if you are looking for lazer and beauty treatments.
felt a bit rushed but very good, knowledgable and took care of what I needed
Dr. Rhee definitely knows her stuff and was able to diagnose my ailments and prescribe effective medication for it within 5 min. It was a very quick visit and although she seemed a bit rushed (it was the end of the day so I can understand) she did take time to make sure my questions were answered and that I understood the treatment plan. Very nice and fast medical staff as well.
Very nice office very cozy , the staffs are very kind didnt wait long at all less then 20 min.. Dr.Libby Rhee gets the job done every time very quick as well !! WILL BE RETURNING
Great bed side manner , would recommend to friends
Dr. Rhee was great. Very attentive and thorough. Great bedside manner and explained everything she was doing. The office itself was really nice--clean, well organized. Staff was friendly and efficient. Definitely recommend this place and Dr. Rhee.
Slightly unprofessional, but overall nice and informative.
I came for an annual scan and she was quick, easy and friendly. I didn't have a major concern or issue but for my need, she was great! Plus no wait time always is appreciated!
Very professional. I highly recommend her.
Everything was great and the office decor was really awesome (really, so awesome I'm mentioning it here!)
Excellent doctor and staff, really cool office. Very friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend!
The Best :)
Outstanding care, professional, nice manner. Gives one confidence.
Great experience. Dr. Libby is so nice and helpful.
Dr. Rhee and her staff were pleasant and informative. It made it an easy visit. I would definitely recommend her to friends.
Dr. Libby is such a sweet lady. The office is designed in such an entertaining manner that my extra wait time (mere 10-15 mins more) flew by. The only thing that slightly bothered me was the fact that the nurse had started to prep for my treatment prior to the doctor even conducting a diagnosis herself. I imagine they must have discussed the matter with each other before the doc walked in the room...But I would have preferred if the treatment was figured out after she had looked at the problem area. She did though only continue with the treatment after she had looked at the area...So there's that. It's a very small detail (a matter of personal preference probably), but like I said, she's a very kind sweet and comforting doctor. Do go see here
I feel like she couldve been more detailed. But all around thorough.
Very happy with Dr Rhee and her office staff. Will definitely go back to her.
I think she is great dermatologist, I have keloid scars, and she seems very knowledgeable when treating them. I noticed great results from first treatment. They went from bothering, pretty much throughout the whole day, to not even hardly noticing them. She gets you in and out quickly, which is great also.
Amazing! Personable! Clean and inviting office space.
Very nice, laid back dermatologist.
Dr Rhee is great!!!
I really liked Dr. Rhee. She was super nice and made everything comfortable and easy. I will certainly go back.
Dr Rhee is very responsive and caring and clear in her communication of treatment.
My vist went very well and I would recommend he staff was kind and helpful. Libby Rhee was informative and reassuring.. Overall no complaints
You have never visited an office as cool as this one. Trust me. It was so cool I took pics and decided this wld be the only place my family ever goes for dermatology. All that was confirmed when I met the best team of dermatologists ever!
I would recommend this Dr highly. The administrative staff when you walk in werent very friendly
She was great. Highly recommended.
Would definitely refer her to anyone looking for a dermatologist.
She made a quick diagnosis and listed off what needed to be done before I finished explaining what happened. She didn't really check in with me to see if I had any questions and said that they would explain everything to me in "simple" terms later. Honestly, I'm really disappointed because I've been going to Dr. Buka for years now and this is my first less than 5-star visit.
She was very professional, friendly and explained to me what I needed to do. A bit quick, which seem to be the rule with Dr Buka's practice.
Dr Rhee explained in detail about my issue and the solution. In this day and age it is rare that a medical provider will show enough interest and time in any patient to answer more than one question. I am truly happy for the service that Dr. Rhee provides.
overall I had a very good experience. the wait time was short and the service from all staff was friendly and professional.
The wait time was a little long, perhaps because it was my first appointment. The appointment itself felt a little rushed although Dr. Rhee was very personable. Dr. Rhee's UWS clinic is in Bobby Buka's practice--which was very weirdly (in both good and bad ways) decorated. I went in for a basic consultation about a rash and felt fairly sure of how to help it following the appointment.
Everything was very professional and I felt safe and sure it would turn out good. As it did:-)
Dr. Rhee is very nice and has a great manner, but she seemed anxious to leave-- I had to stop her on her way out of the room to ask basic questions about my condition, and then she wasn't great at answering them. I had to have stitches, and though the assistant handed me some ointment, I wasn't given any post-care instructions. Also, The walls in this location are quite thin, and the way the office is subdivided you can hear everything. On one visit as I was waiting for the doctor, I could hear a conversation she was having with the staff about her dog and other things. It really annoyed me that I was waiting there half-naked while they were chatting. It went on for about 10-15 minutes (I know because I was looking at my phone, eager to get back to my own office). It's great that they cultivate a friendly atmosphere, but I think the staff needs to be made aware that they come off as really unprofessional when they do this. This contributed to my feeling of unease about whether I was receiving the proper care for my condition. It undermines my confidence in the doctor when I can hear her gossiping about a staff member's love life and house-training her dog.
Waited maybe 5 minutes. The staff here was great and very friendly. Whole appointment took about 30 minutes.
She was great! Extremely knowledgeable and addressed all of my concerns
I was very happy with my visit. It's my second one with Dr Rhee.
Was extremely helpful and had my skin clear in time for an important event (my wedding). Couldn't thank her enough!
it was my first visit and she seems nice and lovely.
She was highly competent, very easy to communicate with, and I intend to see her again.
Dr. Rhee has a pleasant manner and made me feel really comfortable during my visit.
Dr Rhea is more than pleasant and upbeat. A very positive physician who gave excellent care with a caring attitude and professionalism. I felt very comfortable with her and very confident in her abilities
Dr. Rhee is extremely professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. I absolutely love my visit with her and will definitely be returning.
The doctor is very nice. But the receptionist is so inpatient, dead face.
Dr. Rhee was very friendly and efficient. She went straight to the problem and gave me a solution. She also gave me a clear explanation of what she was going to prescribe me and what she would do in the future if the current one doesn't work well for me. In addition, I had an appointment and the wait was less than 5mins. All the staffs were super friendly and gave me a warm welcome for being there the first time. Very satisfy with my first visit there.
Extremely Pleasant. Pretty Quick as well. Office was definitely not boring. Very comfortable environment.
I would definitely recommend DR Libby Rhee she was polite and sweet , fast and straight to the point .
Great visit. Very helpful, friendly and professional.
Dr. Rhee is hands down the greatest dermatologist there is. She's so nice and super gentle... I couldn't even feel the shots that she gave me! Definitely would recommend her!
Dr Libby Rhee was good and gave me all the information I needed. The reception staff were nice and friendly but her assistant nurse was very prickly and gave the perception that he just didn't want to be there.
Excellent very professional??????
Very friendly and helpful!
Dr. Rhee clarified my condition and was a huge assist in discontinuing unnecessary medication
Very professional and friendly! Highly recommend!
Very nice. Explained everything well. Happy.
Dr. Rhee was fantastic! She explained everything to me very thoroughly and clearly, and she made me feel really comfortable. I will definitely be coming back to see her.
Very nice, bordering on not professional enough. However, spotted something I did not originally go in for which I appreciate the thoroughness!
She was fantastic on both my visits as was her nurse. She healed an issue that has been a problem for many years.
It's was great ! I came out more information about my visit then I knew . Postive and willing to meet your standards and more I would highly recommend Dr.Libby. Nice atmosphere and good service
She is really nice the staff is nice and upbeat and very helpful.
Dr. Rhee was great!!! She was funny and made me feel super comfortable!!
Very pleasant staff! :)
I was the first appointment of the day. I arrived 10 minutes early and she arrived 10 minutes late. However, I had a procedure done and was still on time for the rest of my day.
She is so short and sweet. I thought she was awesome. She made me laugh the entire time. She was thorough and identified exactly what was wrong with me. She provided assurance which is essential. Overall recommended
This was a ten star experience.The office is gorgeous, my wait was not even a minute, the entire staff was lovely and Dr Rhee was the fabulous!!! She took her time, was thorough and took care of everything in a professional and caring manor. Thank you Dr Rhee.
She answered my problem so fast I almost felt like I should have figured it out myself (but I know I never would have because WbMD had me convinced I had cancer). Would definitely see her again. Though I hope I don't have to.
Dr. Rhee is professional, yet warm and friendly. She is clearly an expert dermatologist and I am glad she's my doctor. You will not be dusappo
Always pleasant and professional. She knows her stuff and is extremely helpful.
She is very nice, she listen to your concern and was trying to help you ,also very polite :)
She was very helpful, answering all my questions with knowledgable answers, and she was extremely sweet and caring. I felt at once comfortable and trusting of her opinions.
Very personable and caring! Recommended for sure!
Dr. Rhee was fabulous! I have never been to a dermatologist who has been more thorough. She is personable, professional, and her staff was equally wonderful. I highly recommend!
Very quick , nice clinic loved the ambient. Dr. Rhee was very nice just a little too quick. The front desk girl was very nice as well.
She's super dope. If you want a friendly doc that makes you feel comfortable in your skin (literally that will probably be the end result seeing as she's a dermatologist) - My treatment was perfect
Dr. Rhee was very nice but she seemed rush. After waiting for over 30 minutes, she saw me for 5 minutes and then prescribed a prescription.
staff was very friendly & attentive. Doctor was great! highly recommend!
Punctual, friendly, and helpful!!!
She was so great. Incredible bedside manner. Provides undivided attention and listened to all my needs. Libby Rhee has made me leave my old dermatologist for her. I'm so happy to have, out of sheer luck, found her.
she pushed cosmetic procedures pretty heavily.
My appointment was fast and efficient. Dr. Rhee was very kind and knew what my problem was right away and she briefly educated me on what it was. Office is very nice and organized. Staff was friendly and professional.
it was a great visit and consultation!
Libby was extremely friendly and comfortable to talk to. I had a very pleasant experience and I would strongly recommend.
She's great. Very efficient and friendly.
Dr. Rhee was great, but the billing after my appointments was a mess and they sent my lab work to a lab out of network which caused a lot of issues that I'm still trying to sort out.
Dr Rhee came in looked at me said ok this is what you have here's a script BYE! Because of this I'm getting a second opinion. I don't feel confident with a rushed appointment.
My visit with Dr. Rhee was quick and fast because she knew what she was looking for. She gets right to the point and shes very detailed when it comes to helping patients.
Too fast. Didn't seem to be listening to me at all. Prescribed medication without listening to any of my previous treatments. Didn't seem to take any of my concerns very seriously.
Great visit. I had to fill out some papers and the staff was really cool and helpful. Everyone who came in, they offered water to. Damm I thought I was special at first, lol. Dr Rhee was excellent and was very patient in answering questions and she is funny too!
Great, very professional!
Dr. Rhee is amazing. She is super kind, friendly, thorough, and attentive. Let's hope I don't have any more skin issues pop up... But if I do? At least I've found my dermatologist.
I would recommend Dr. Rhee. She has a great bedside manner and was extremely knowledgeable. I did not feel rushed when I was in her office. She answered all my questions and recommended alternatives to treatment.
Dr Rhee, was excellent, knowledgeable and understanding
Quick, efficient, friendly and thorough. Also, great office and extremely friendly staff. Cannot go wrong here.
i liked it just that i waited alot
I was extremely pleased with the doctor, assistant, support staff and entire visit. Lynn W.
Dr.Rhee is very attentive and informative. After a visit with her, you will know that she is a physician who cares about her patients.
I think under different circumstances, she may have been ok. But for whatever reason, I waited about an hour and 15 minutes with two other patients after me at about 5:30, 6pm in the evening so I definitely felt rushed. What she prescribed also was not terribly effective, but that of course may not have been her fault. But overall, I wasn't super happy with my appointment.
Systems were down so everything was manual. There is also two 214's and the receptionist was not that helpful on the phone. The facility is really nice, clean and Dr Rhee was really friendly.
I liked Dr. Rhee very much. She was personable and thorough with the exam.
She was very pleasant & didn't rush me. And she explained everything really well so I fully understood.
Very abrupt - didn't really feel like she was interested in helping me understand my concerns better or even explain the medicine she prescribed me. Instead, she directed me to their website to watch an informative video. I guess it would have been ok if I was only looking for her to only prescribe medicine for me, but I actually wanted to talk to her about a more holistic approach.
