Dr. Ma administered an allergy test on me and followed up with a phone call to clarify, which I thought was rare (and surprisingly nice) for a doctor. I called back with further questions and my call was promptly returned. Sheseems to err on the conservative side, which normally I like in my medical care, but I learned afterward (upon visiting another allergist for a second opinion) that a lot of information was missing. She is a bit condescending so for those who prefer to have a conversation with your doctor, there are probably better fits out there.

Dr. Ma had a very calming demeanor and listened carefully to my symptoms and medical history, not rushing through the appointment at all even though I arrived ten minutes late. After asking whether the office was convenient for me to getto, she walked me across the hall to get lab work done before closing rather than reschedule me for another day. Would definitely recommend!

I came to her for an allergy test and a treatment plan for my terrible seasonal allergies that I have been struggling with more and more each year. I found her to be very pleasant, focused on me and very upfront/toothe point. Though she had plenty of patients waiting, I did not feel rushed and she took the time to really get into the answers of all the questions I had. Also informed me of several allergy treatment plans I can go with and the pros/cons of everything. She's very thorough and I highly recommend her. I live in South East Brooklyn and find that the commute is totally worth it!

I never write a bad review but worst doctor experience I have ever had. Dr. Ma made me feel incredibly embarassed and rudely disregarded my issue by giving me an informative and helpful diagnosis of "I don't know." She did notoffer any help or recommend any other doctor, she simply just laughed saying she cannot diagnose a skin rash because she is an allergist....All I wanted to know was if the rash was caused by an allergic reaction to something so I could figure out the cause of it. Laughing at your patients probably isn't the best thing to do but at least I know to never go to this doctor again. So disappointed and annoyed - waste of time and money.

Dr. Ma is very knowledgeable, and the wait is not very long. Most bloodworm is done on the same floor and very quickly, if needed from the preliminary tests. The allergy consultation went very well, and make sure you have detailedinformation to identify specific allergies. This is the best for finding out which allergies the patient has. Overall, I would go back and highly recommend Dr. Ma.

I'm very lucky I found Dr. Ma. I couldn't ask for a better allergist. She was so sweet and listened to all my back medical history very carefully. Just in one appointment I can say that I know her for years. She will be my doctor forever!!!!!

While she was perfectly pleasant, she was less than helpful. Her answer to me was "I'm stumped." and "Did you touch something and put your hands in that area?" regarding a rash that I broke out in on multiple occasions. Ifound another doctor on Zocdocs that looked at my rash (much more seriously), told me what it wasn't, but also said that she was concerned and immediately ordered an allergy/skin test and blood work. She told me that it was a very clear allergic reaction and she wanted to figure out what it was. I simply felt like the other doctor was more proactive and invested in getting to the bottom of my problem. Whereas Dr. Ma, albeit nice, just shrugged her shoulders--literally, she shrugged her shoulders--and sent me on my way while telling me to see another doctor.

My appointment was strange. When I went into her office to meet with her she was wearing sneakers and what looked like gym clothes. Not that all doctors need to wear a lab coat, but it was kind of off-putting. Shewas incredibly silent for a very long time while I explained my allergy trouble. She didn't ask follow-up questions when I mentioned something, she just sat at her desk typing notes (so much that it seemed like she was transcribing) on a laptop. She did allergy tests on my arms and left me waiting in the room for 30 minutes when the tests only needed 10 minutes to settle (according to her). In general I found her to be nice but really not informative or inquisitive. Just very quiet, no "bedside" manner at all. I wouldn't recommend her.
