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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
