I switched to Dr. Sohn after the Nurse Practitioner I was seeing moved. He is routinely 2+ hours late, the majority of it being to wait for him to make small talk, tell you about the effect of the medication you'vebeen taking for years, and type some stuff you already told the nurse into his computer. His bedside manner is fine, but he NEEDS to get his schedule together. This isn't an emergency room, these are booked appointments.

This is my second time here and I won’t be coming back. It’s extremely inconsiderate to keep your patients waiting for 2+ hours. I had an appointment at 12pm, showed early for paperwork and by 2 o’clock, I am still waiting.No one has this kind of time on their hands.

My prior visit with Dr.Phil was over 4 years ago and I was so impressed with the time he took getting to know my history, that I knew I wanted to visit him again. Dr.Phil takes exceptional care with his patients,however, this means that each appointment regularly goes overtime. I showed up for my 4:00pm appointment and was not seen until 6:45pm. The time that the practice takes with their patients is unusual for most practices and one of the things I really like about it - I think it may just work out better if they only book 8 or 10 appointments a day.

First time seeing a doctor in 7 years, and Dr. Sohn and his staff were tremendously accommodating, patient and knowledgeable. I highly recommend, and his office is directly next to the train station so heading straight to work afterwards was a breeze.

This office does not honor appointment times. 4 walk-ins were seen before me, even though I had an appointment, so I was seen 1.5 hours after my appointment time.

Dr. Sohn really is great; very kind and thorough. Unfortunately, the office is run very poorly. Wait times are generally crazy. I can appreciate that the doctor takes the time with each patient, but I have to take time away fromwork to schedule a visit. When I am still sitting in the waiting room hours after my appointment time, something is not working. After your appointment, getting your phone call answered at busy times takes nothing short of a miracle. They are overbooked and understaffed. Perhaps this has changed since my last visit, but I doubt it. On top of that, they wouldn't discuss my bloodwork results with me without milking my insurance and wasting my time with a follow-up visit. The doctor used to call in the evening to discuss results. That policy apparently changed and I've changed my doctor as a result.

The office was awful and so was the wait. They were very unorganized. The doctor's office ran my insurance wrong and caused me many issues when trying to get my prescription. I wouldn't recommend going here. The actual doctor was niceand a good listener, that was the only pro out of this experience.

Although Dr. Sohn and the nurse treating me were very professional and friendly, I would not recommend going here unless you have a lot of time. I was at the doctor's office for nearly four hours (three hours of waiting tomeet the doctor and one hour of actually meeting with the doctor).

Great office! Dr. Phil was very informative explaining things along the way and answering all of my questions. The front desk was also very helpful and understanding and helped me look up my insurance info because I forgot my card. Unlikesome offices there was no wait, in fact, I had to change my appointment time last minute and they were able to accommodate me. Seriously one of the best experiences I ever had, will be back.

As a nurse I was looking for a new primary care physician. He was incredibly thorough. Loved his bedside manner. He was patient and sat with me and explained everything. It may cause a back up in the waiting area. Buthe is totally worth it. Knows his stuff!! Great doc!!!

I read about long wait times and since I was in the afternoon, I would have expected that but I was seen right away. Dr. Sohn took his time, listening to my long history of health issues. I never felt rushedin any way. He addressed all my concerns and had answers and suggested tests where appropriate. I'm very satisfied.

What an amazing experience. Everyone at the office -- from the receptionist to the nurse to the doctor -- was kind, attentive. The doctor spends a good amount of time with you -- it's like nothing I've ever had before. Normallyit's, you're in, you're out and they can barely remember your name. Highly recommend this practice.

Dr. Phil was a great doctor. He took his time to explain everything that I wanted to go over. He helped me understand that the things I was curious about. He left no stone unturned. The wait was bad, but Ibelieve it was because a lot of the older patients didn't show up, then they all showed up together.

Showed up fifteen minutes early for a 2:30 appointment. At 3:15, an hour after I arrived, I asked about the wait and was told that: 1) The doctor is usually an hour behind schedule on a normal day, and on thisparticular day was even more behind schedule. 2) There was another patient ahead of me, so in all likelihood I'd wait another hour. 3) The only way to avoid waiting an hour minimum is to book the first appointment of the day, but his first appointment is booked for the next two months. Complete waste of time.

Fantastic doctor, just unfortunately can't run an office or stick to a schedule. I've been 3 times and he's always running over an hour late. If you've got time and a book to read then I'd recommend him. If you have a job, you should look elsewhere.

Overall, I thought Dr. Sohn was great. He was very kind and knowledgeable. My only negative comment about my appointment was the 1hr 30min wait before I actually got to see the doctor. Otherwise, I have nothing but positive things to say about Dr. Sohn and his staff.
