Verified Patient Reviews
I really liked Dr Lee. It was all very straight forward and comfortable. She is a really nice and went through things in a comforting manner. I'm glad I've found her and will continue to use her.
Very polite and efficient
Dr. Lee was helpful and patient. While I am not sure there was a conclusion to my situation, she offered some suggestions and was thorough. I was comfortable throughout my whole experience. The nurse and receptionist were a bit more hasty and impersonal. The office is a bit outdated but overall appeared tidy.
Dr. Lee has very good bedside manners. Her explanations were concise and easy to follow. She was clear in what I needed to do to manage my health. When I left, she forgot to mention something and took the time to find me to go over what she forgot to tell me. I really had a comfortable and pleasant visit with Dr. Lee!
Dr. Lee is super super smart and very helpful. I'm very happy to find a new doctor who takes my insurance. I was seen right away and the office staff was easy to work with!
Very nice and thorough and she explained my symptoms in great detail.
Dr. Lee is probably fine if all you need is a quick physical. I would NOT recommend her if you have an actual health problem.
I love Dr. Lee! I like her holistic approach to medicine; she told me what foods/vitamins I need to be eating more of for my overall health.
The whole experience was great! I filled out my paperwork (first time at the office) got my initial check-in, was seen, and discharged all within an hour. Very pleasant office and staff.
Pure perfection. Was able to get a complete physical on my lunch hour and still had 15 minuets to kill before heading back to work. Everyone there is friendly and professional. And no snotty people with attitudes at reception.
She's amazing. I've been seeing her since 2014. I love that shes' a doctor who doesn't focus on pills for everything. Healthy living and healthy eating is the top advice she gives and her most prominent recommendations/diagnosis. I also appreciate that she goes over the blood-work with us both viewing the screen and she offers suggestions for improvement that are in line with complimentary practices as well as traditional Western practices. She's the best.
Dr. Lee and her staff were friendly and accommodating throughout my entire visit. Her bedside manner made me feel at ease about my eye infection, and she explained the condition and treatment process to me clearly and thoughtfully. I'm glad I found her practice!
Quick visit with almost no wait time at all every time I've been. Dr. Lee explains everything she is looking at and wants you to understand what she is talking about.
I like going there I feel comfortable with the staff, everybody seems nice so far.
She is very professional and spent enough time to exam. I highly recommend her!
her bedside manner is unmatched. her team knew what they were doing and were calm, cool, and collected. ill be going back for sure
I was a patient of Dr. Lee's for two years for annual physicals. At first I was pleased that she was taking time to do additional testing to follow-up on my particular situation. Then, however, I experienced the sheer incompetence of her office. First, I was overcharged for an office visit and wasn't told about it until I arrived a year later for my next annual physical. In other words, had I not shown up again they would have pocketed the money because they had not bothered to call me in that whole year to tell me of their mistake. Then, on my second visit I needed a prescription called in for a prior authorization from my insurance company. It took Dr. Lee's office nearly 2 MONTHS to call in the prescription and that was only after several calls I had to make to see if it had been called in yet! The office was completely unprofessional, never updating their patient along the way, and definitely not working to help the patient. What a complete let-down.
She is very thorough..
Great bedside manner. Dr. Lee ALWAYS explains diagnosis or issues in depth. Light and friends. highly recommended.
Easy breezy. Her entire staff are friendly and Dr. Lee explains everything.
The visit was very good. Dr Sookwook is very professional. I got in, and had to fill out a couple of paper works. Then i was first seen by a nurse, then by Dr Sookwook. The diagnosis was quick and precise. Definitely recommend her!
Dr. Lee visit is always excellent. She takes her time to explain what is wrong with you and if she is not quite sure of the illness she would recommend you to another doctor.
She was lovely. I did not feel rushed at all. Very calm and attentive!
This place was a big disappointment. No wonder they had availability on a short term notice. The facility felt dirty and old. The doctor barely spoke to you. She seemed to want to add on all these out of scope tests on my labs (for my annual physical). I would never go back and I do not recommend other people go.
She’s very nice but dismissed my concerns. She also tries very hard to go the natural route, which is fine but not suited for me.
This facility did not appear to be a customary western medicine practice. When I booked this appointment I stated that it was for a prescription refill. Upon arrival I was told they do not provide the general type of prescription (this was for a common prescription that is customarily obtained through a PCP or general practitioner). The prescription is taken on a daily basis and I needed an emergency refill. The office should have informed me in advance so that I could have made an appointment to go elsewhere rather than waste my time. As a result, I will be out of a daily medication until I can see another doctor.
She was very informative in my diagnosis & gave me many details on what was wrong & how to prevent any future issues. Much appreciated!
Very prompt, love her detailed explanation of dietary and lifestyle advice!
They said they could see me unless I made the doctor my primary are physician, even though they took my insurance.
She was pretty awful. I asked for resources on a specific condition and she told me to google it. Didn't even provide me a list of clinics that I could go to or resource centers. She was dismissive. I wouldn't recommend her to anyone.
My visit with Dr. Lee went really well! The staff was efficient in registering and checking me in, and also attentive to detail about my information. Dr. Lee was also very kind, sweet and willing to answer any questions I had!
Dr. Lee’s Office is very efficient. She is my PCP and I was there for my annual physical. Upon arriving, I was asked to fill out paperwork immediately. I didn’t have to wait long before being seen by the nurse who checked my height/ weight, drew blood, etc. I also had a wait of less than 5 minutes before being seen by Dr. Lee. She’s friendly and knowledgeable.
I was so impressed with Dr. Lee at my yearly physical that I not only made her my primary care doctor but returned for OB/GYN check ups as well. She is thorough and incredibly knowledgeable.
Kind, confident, and professional! I wish she'd spent more time listening about my previous treatments and why I was on the treatment I was on, but I'll give her way a go nonetheless.
Dr. Lee had a kind bedside manner and was very knowledgeable. Sometimes it feels like doctors are going through the motions, but her care was very personable and specific to my medical needs. I'll definitely be returning to her for future appointments.
Dr. Lee was friendly and careful to explain everything in detail, as were the nurses. The wait time was short, and overall the visit was fine. I would not recommend going to this office, however, because their admin structure is messy and inconsistent. I was billed for a followup consultation that I did not need and received vague non-answers about the entire process from multiple people. Disappointed because I liked the doctor.
This was my first visit to Dr. Lee's office and I would definitely recommend her. She addressed all of the concerns that I had and I did not feel rushed at all. The nurse was also very professional and the front desk (for only one person) was great.
Generic outlook and insights
The treatment Dr. Lee gave me made wound infected. I had to go to another doctor for a 2nd opinion. Would not recommend.
Great doctor, highly recommend her
Dr. Sookwook is very helpful and she gives good advises.
The visit was pleasant and professional. I appreciated the nurses and doctor who provided fast and courteous service. I would definitely recommend Dr. Lee. I booked her at the last minute and she was very accommodating. Thanks.
Pleasant and courteous staff. Dr lee has excellent listening skills and provides with many options.
All was good except waiting time. Also I wish she could make a phone call to follow up my annual physical instead of having me at her office in person for just a few minutes follow up talk. I still appreciate it but It's not easy to go to doctor's office during work hours so please give your patients a call to follow up unless they need shots or something else.
Dr. Lee is always professional and explains symptoms/meds with as much detail and you'd like. Wait times can sometimes be longer than expected but nothing over 30-45 mins
Overall good experience, efficient reception and pre-check, efficient consultation.
Very patient and kind, and very informative! Took her time to explain my blood results. So nice! Truly loves her job and sharing her knowledge
Very good communication skills
Fantastic in every way.
Have not received a follow up from the office after 9 days, have called to no answer and only received a 'voicemail full' response. Was instructed to make a follow up appointment to review blood work results, but also was informed that follow up appointments would not be covered by insurance. Overall, just difficult.
My visit was fine but she emailed me test results and would not discuss them without me paying for a follow up visit. Months later, her office would not provide documentation my insurance company needed in order to process payment for medication. To be honest the visit (and her entire practice) felt like a scam.
I'm so glad to have her as my primary physician. She's extremely patient and compassionate. I would recommend her to anybody.
Dr. Lee has so many available appointments that it's easy to book for the day of, if not the time of. She listens to all your concerns and tries to give the best and most financially efficient ways to manage the issue. There is a little bit of wait-time but that's the trade off for availability.
Did not feel she really cared, was more of an in and out appointment.
Don't go to this Dr unless you want vitamins. She's great at providing lists of expensive vitamins and over the counter remedies that do not work. I came in with severe anxiety and heart pain and she did not even bother to listen to my heart. Do not waste your time, go to a real doctor.
She is calm and knowledgeable.You do not feel rushed as most doctors give that quick in and out feeling. She even brought out a book to show and explain to me exactly what was happening. Wonderful, I have made her my primary doctor.
Very informative and observant doctor. Great bedside manner! She is pleasant to deal with, helps explain things, and is very professional
Dr. Lee and her assistant are very friendly, professional, and thorough. The wait time is never more than 10 minutes. She always answers my questions and addresses my concerns with a lot of information. I've been seeing Dr. Lee for about 3 years now and I would highly recommend her.
She would not refill the prescription I needed so the visit was useless.
Office is not very clean and seemed very unorganized. Rediculous fees for just a signature.
Very informative and aware. Best appointment in a while
Took her time and explained everything as well as my options. Short wait time and friendly staff
Terrible. She refused any information on professional advice for whether or not the pill was a good idea for my situation, she had no information on what is covered/not OR what brand names coincide with generic names, and told me to return in another, SEPARATE appointment to ask for prescriptions since she "had already spent too much time with me"—(it had been 17 minutes total). Simultaneously, I had asked for all STD/STI screening. When we finished, I attempted to confirm HIV test was included and her response was, "No, that's not usual to test for and is not included in a standard screening." Really? Isnt that the big one? This is 2017 and the lack of knowlege and professionalism was terrifying. I do not recommend.
love dr lee! ive been w her for 4 years and is so patient and kind
Very kind staff, cozy atmosphere. Convenient location. Dr. Lee was very respectful and kind. I felt reassured. If she was still in my network I'd go to her!
Did not do many test to see what the problem is. Did not tell me anything that I did not know already
Dr Lee was very nice and straightforward. She was very careful and made an unpleasant Annual Pap Smear necessity actually comfortable and not painful.
The office is clean and tidy. Staff is friendly and welcoming. Dr. Sookwook Lee is kind and knowledgable. I enjoyed my experience at her office.
She was great and very nice!
She was really sweet.
Excellent.. easy to talk too.. clears the doubt well.. would surely recommend
The way that Dr. Lee conducts her practices makes you feel that you were scammed. I saw her for a checkup in August and September 2016, which entailed two visits: one for a blood draw and the second to review the results. I made a copay for each visit. Six months later, in 2017, I get another bill for another copay from her because she apparently billed one of the visits as two visits. The insurance bill code she submitted included a 30 minute followup and a 45 minute complex diagnosis. I spent, at most, 15 minutes with her. Her office is already prepared for this because they'll send you links to some articles about how they're allowed to bill you months after the fact. So this is not a one-time mistake: this is how Dr. Sookwook Lee chooses to operate her medical practice. Well, I'm writing in July 2017 because I just got a bill from the laboratory for hundreds of dollars for services provided in August, 2016. That's right. Yep. Anyway, my guess is that for whatever reason, Dr. Lee submitted the lab bills so late that the insurance company has refused to pay. Now they lab is going after me for payment. Look. Save yourself the headache and avoid Dr. Lee like the plague. You might feel good about her medical treatment for a few months, but when the late bills start piling up, then you're going to be on here complaining as well.
I met her today. She was very pleasant, so was the staff.
Very fast and thorough
Nice office, didn't wait too long, Dr Lee was kind and explained what tests were going to be run and why.
I made an early appointment and she was on time, made sure to be very thorough and am very excited to continue to meetwith her.
Wonderful!! She took the time to listen to my symptoms and my problems and then took the time to explain what was happening to my body and how I could get better.
She was great!
I really enjoyed my visit with Dr. Lee! I came in with a few questions regarding my heart rate and she made me feel so comfortable. She even pulled out a few diagrams to help me visualize what's going on in my body. She was very sweet and helpful in the advice she offered. I decided today to make her my primary care physician as well.
I really liked her and will recommend her to friends. Her approach seems very holistic, and she scheduled a follow up visit to go over my lab results (I went in for an annual physical).
Came in for birth control and a check up. Dr. Sookwook had good bedside manner and I was seen right away.
Great! Walked me through my blood test and recommended vitamins to help and explained why/how they help holistically. She even drew a little diaphragm to explain something and it was nice to see she cared that I understood the way the body processes nutrients from natural sources.
The visit itself was fine but the bad part was the billing. When I was told they were doing bloodwork they said it was routine bloodwork. Yet I got charged on top of my insurance because they coded it incorrectly. They are impossible to get a hold of and do not reply via email or phone or follow through at all. I am still trying to figure out why a normal bloodwork would be so much. Plus the doctor said she would review the results with me and she did not. In fact I had to call to have them email me the results and review myself. Very unprofessional
Dr. Lee is amazing - i was absolutely impressed with the attention and personalized approach I received in her office. Dr. Lee took the time to explain my test results to me and addressed all my questions in a very courteous manner. I highly recommend this doctor!!
Dr. Lee was great, I didn't wait at all and she took time to explain things in my follow up appointment. she even drew pictures :)
Dr. Lee was great at making me feel comfortable and answering all my questions. Will be back.
I truly love Dr. Sookwook Lee. She's very attentive, professional and really cares about my health and will go the extra mile to make sure I get the proper treatment. I highly recommend this wonderful doctor.
A wonderful doctor who explained her decision making and diagnosis very clearly. I loved that she assumed I was an intelligent human being who could take care of myself with the appropriate knowledge. She gave me great tips focused on prevention, not just over-prescribing medications and getting me out quick.
Everyone at the office was very nice. The process was very easy, and went very quickly. It's a convenient office, and it just felt very relaxed.
Very kind, patient, smart and professional.
I've seen Dr. Lee a handful of times now and she is very knowledgeable and patient, always taking time to answer all of my questions and explain all details. She was correct in every diagnosis - from strep throat to even helping me with back pain by showing me a number of stretching techniques. I would highly recommend her!
Very warm and patient. Talked to me thoroughly about my issue
Dr Lee treated my concerns lightly and her office tried to double charge my copay. She was compassionate but I wish things were more professional and attentive.
Wow. Worst doctor's visit I have ever had. This office does not have air conditioning. I feel like it is a law that a doctor's office has to maintain a certain low temperature. The temp outside was a high of 74 yet everyone in the office, including reception, patients, and myself were all sweating profusely. Right then I knew I made a mistake by coming to this doctor. I came in because I have chronic asthma and needed a prescription I have been taking my entire life. I came in with this specific problem but I failed to walk out with a prescription of a medicine I NEED, but she kept trying to speak to me about my already resolved past health issues. It was an extreme waste of my time. I got absolutely nothing out of the appointment. This office did not feel clean, sanitary, and I did not get a resolution for the issue I entered in with. Would never recommend.
I did my annual physical for the first time with this doctor, and after a week or two of my first visit, I got a call ask me to go back to the office again to pick up my report. Since the office is close to my work, so I did. The doctor saw me again and gave me the report, but there was no major obvious problem on my health report. Everything was ok until few weeks past, and I got a bill for my second visit to the doctor which is just to pick up my report. When they asked to go back again, they didn't mention a word about payment, and made it look like it was included in the annual physical. Contacted them again later, they said it was because I have problem on my health report so they called me back without telling me I'll be charged extra, which already doesn't make sense at first. I showed my report to more than one of my doctor friends and they all think my report is totally normal. So I would strongly not recommend this doctor, I think their business philosophy is just to get as much money as possible, and they think patients are usually lazy and ignorant so they wouldn't question more. Please if you are looking for a reliable doctor for your annual physical that you would want to keep for years, find someone who actually cares about your health (and your finance), and always put this as a priority.
I went here to see about a potential infection because of lymph node swelling and she repeatedly tried to tell me I probably bit my tongue despite insisting that I didn't. Waste of time.
Dr. Lee was patient and efficient with the consultation. I've since made her my primary doctor.
She was nice and polite, but overly formal.
One of the best doctors I've seen in a long time
She was very nice and took her time to listen and to explain everything... highly recommended!
She is really nice and patient with all my questions
I've been seeing Sookwook Lee for almost 5 years, she is professional and pleasant to go to for annual checkups.
She was ok. I can tell she tried her best to help, but she was afraid of giving away too much or telling too much wrong information. I would not recommend her to you if you need more urgent care. Regular check ups she is probably fine.
Sookwook Lee is great. I have been seeing her for 3 years now for my annual check up. She reminds me of a caring aunt and I feel comfortable talking about my health with her.
This was the worst patient care experience I have ever had! I sat in an empty waiting room for an hour to see the doctor for 5 mins. I was a new patient and not only did she not ask for my history, previous doctor, etc. she did perform the annual check up I came in for, telling me I only needed one every 3 years. She also told me she had refilled my birth control prescription and sent to the pharmacy but the pharmacy had no record. After calling her office with no help for a week, I was informed by a secretary that she was on vacation for the next 2 weeks and there was no way for me to get my prescription. Giant waste of my time and would not recommend to anyone...unprofessional and inconvenient experience.
It was very quick, the staff are very friendly.
Great visit. Everyone was kind and the Doctor listened and gave great recommendations.
dr lee is very kind and thoughtful
Very sweet and thorough with my annual physical. Office is combined with another office but easy to find.
She gave me a very helpful analysis of my annual physical's blood work.
Was super sick at the time but also about to get on a flight which made me very nervous about what was going to happen with my ears, etc. Dr. Lee was very patient with my nervousness and gave me everything possible to get better. She has always been very good at explaining the full diagnosis as well as making sure all of your concerns are met. I also like that to get diagnosis and talk about symptoms you sit at a desk with her instead of sitting on an examination table the whole time.
Dr. Lee was great! She was not my primary physician but I went to see her abruptly due to some pain. She was very thorough, but straight to the point. I highly recommend Dr. Lee.
Amazing doctor! She makes the whole process very easy
Dr. Lee was very informative and sweet. I would definitely recommend this office, so far a very pleasant experience!
The whole process went by quickly and efficiently. She was able to make an assessment that I thought was correct in how I had been feeling. She was very direct and took information from me without steamrolling.
First time visit. I appreciated that the Dr. took the time to have a conversation with me and asked me lots of questions.
The doctor was good, went over the lab result with me and very friendly. The front desk, on the other hand, is not professional at all. I was greeted by a lady and then told to sit in the lobby and wait for the nurse to call me. Then someone else came in with a later appointment with the same doctor. After waiting for about 20 minutes, the person with the later appointment was called in by the nurse. I was a bit confused and went to the front desk to ask. The girl who told me to wait earlier thought I ready saw the doctor and came out! Turns out that she never even told the nurse that I was there... Not recommending the front desk services at all!
Dr. Sookwook Lee is very educational and each diagnosis was spot on to what I was feeling. She was able to articulate the pain and provide treatment for each pain. I was impress she knew so much of what I was experiencing without me doing too much talking within the first 10 minutes of the check up! Dr. Lee is also makes me feel very comfortable and openly share. I really like the professional and friendly, knowledgeable staff. In addition, I was also very content that I was in & out of my appointment under an hour with not a long wait time! Highly recommend this doctor! ~ Jenny C.
Appreciated the straightforward nature of the doctor. Nothing sugar-coated. If you want someone who tells you straight what she thinks, nothing like it!
She was very informative & very helpful she answered all my questions .. would definitely recommend her , the office space is nice and cozy too
I went for a routine physical and the doctor requested a bunch of extra services, so I ended up having pay a lot out of pocket for what should have been a totally covered preventative service. I called and emailed the office multiple times to request reimbursement and they were unresponsive. Very disappointed in this office.
In and out and very courteous!
Dr. Lee was very nice. She showed concern and gave suggestions for my situation. I will definitely recommend her. Overall Dr. Lee is amazing!
It was horrible. She doesn't listen to the patient. And medically didn't seem like she knew what she was talking about.. I left with nothing.
Both the doctor and nurse were great and I felt they listened to my concerns and were very helpful.
I've had a great experience with Dr. Lee. I have been to many specialists for various ailments and none of them have ever truly explained to me what was causing my symptoms in a way that I could understand, and under her care I have finally started to really work on the things that I need to get back to optimal health. She is in a convenient location, the staff is friendly, and my visit was quick, in and out.
Dr. Lee took the time to go over all of my health concerns. She was always very thorough when going over my blood work and recommended vitamins for various deficiencies she found my blood. She tries to truly solve health issues before giving medications to mask the problem. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Lee was wonderful. Very sweet and nice. Would definitely go back. The only problem I had is the wait. I had to wait over an hour for the appointment since the office could not locate appointment, and also had to check with the insurance company. I appreciate this does not happen again.
Honestly, I had high hopes going to Dr. Lee. I suspected that I had the mumps, and she did some blood work on Monday. She gave me a note to stay away from work for 3 days, and that I should get my test results by then. On Wednesday I was frantically calling and emailing her office to see if my results came in, and if I could come into work on Thursday. Her mailbox was full and I ended up calling ZocDoc to no avail. It's now Friday and missed some crucial time at work because I wasn't sure if it was safe to go to work or not, and this i was a terrible experience. I STILL AM WAITING ON MY RESULTS.
Dr. Lee is kind, professional, and thorough. Added bonus that there's little wait time. I highly recommend.
I was very pleased with my visit. The office was clean, welcoming, and organized, and I had a short wait before being seen. I appreciated the advice Dr. Lee offered.
Extremely knowledgeable. Very quick, yet thorough appointment.
Super quick as usually! No wait time or whatsoever. I managed to eat lunch and get my annual physical in less than 1 hour!
Dr. Lee was friendly enough during the actual exam, but I had a huge mess of billing/insurance problems with this office. What should have been a 100% covered preventive care visit resulted in multiple bills for blood tests. I contacted the office about removing these bills, which they at least were able to do after some time, but wasn't worth the mess for me to even schedule a follow-up appointment to hear my test results!
Doctor Lee is a wonderful, kind and understanding doctor. Highly recommended!
Very informative and knowledgeable doctor. Office is nice, cozy and clean.
Unappealing office, long wait time, unsatisfactory examination and diagnosis, and they charged me multiple times. When I called the office immediately to refute the additional, unexplained charge, they could not find me in their system and then asked me to hold... for 30 minutes. Would not recommend and will not be returning.
I've been here twice - once for a physical, once to discuss results of my blood test. Was told I had to make an appointment or she wouldn't discuss the results with me. She was a little pushy with medication. Wouldn't come back because of this.
I did my annual physical with Dr. Lee. I only saw her for less than 6-7 mins. Her assistants drawn my bloods & spent more time with me. Overall Dr. Lee was only fair. What I am unhappy about is the office wanting to charge me for another visit to review my testing results and no phone review allowed. I am still wondering why I was charged extra out of pocket expense to have my blood drawn for an annual preventive care blood test?
Dr. Lee is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. She took the time to listen to my concerns and explained everything to me. She has very professional bedside manner. I would recommend Dr. Lee to anyone!
Dr. Lee took the time to explain my results and let me ask questions to give me piece of mine .
Dr Lee was very kind, and went out of her way to be informative and helpful, even at short notice.
No complaints. Office was clean and comfy, and the nurse who did my blood work was a sweetheart. Dr. Lee was so lovely and thorough! Solid reccomedations to keep my health on track, too. Looking forward to my follow up appointment.
Truly amazing. After visiting many doctors, I must say Dr. Lee had the best suggestion and answers. As a young woman, I am dealing with many health difficulties and she had the best holistic approach. She didn't give me terms which I didn't understand. She explained everything thoroughly and her front desk and assistant were extremely helpful. I finally found a good regular doctor I can go to, that truly cares. Great way to start the new year! Will definitely recommend her to my colleagues!
Scary looking facility. I sat down with the doctor in a, not-so-clinical setting, which was set up to be a patient room- only to be told I could not be assisted with my regular prescription. I've never been told this before. Honestly I am not too bothered by this, because I would never go back anyways.
MD was great. Bad service by reception team however. I arrived on time for my appointment at the same time as a patient who was 30 minutes late for their appointment. They were put through before me and I had to wait 50 minutes to be seen.
This office is a JOKE. They charge fees for visits that should not be charged, use improper billing codes to try to collect more money, email unusual invoices MONTHS after an appointment, ask you to come for a follow up appointment as a requirement so they can collect more money, IGNORE calls from my insurance and emails from myself to clarify their billing. My insurance Blue Cross has noted that Dr. Lee's office uses suspicious billing codes that don't make sense. Dr. Lee has also refused and been reluctant to prescribe standard, non-addictive medication that I need. It's in a crappy little office in Korea town, like some backdoor fake doctor. Frequently no one answers the phone during standard business hours, and there is no office voicemail box. I don't trust this office. DON'T GO HERE.
I went in for a physical and Dr. Lee took a comprehensive blood test, which she reviewed with me in detail a week after when the results came in. I really appreciated the time she took to explain everything, and she was very helpful. I definitely recommend her.
I received hundreds of dollars of charges for tests that I did not ask for and I had no idea what the reason for was. The office promptly took it off my bill, but the whole experience left me pretty uncomfortable. The doctor also did not perform a breast exam during the physical--not an office for me.
Completely uninterested in actually helping and totally impersonal. The worst doctor experience I've had in NYC.
I was only seen for a minute when I came in sick and was sent away to get a nasal spray only to find out they recommended something that wasn't covered by my insurance. I wasn't in the best mood to begin with after being sick for a week but the experience was extremely annoying.
Dr. Lee is so great, I love how calm she is and how reassuring her presence is. Every time I've scheduled an appointment I feel so well taken care of by her, she takes her time and always answers my questions. She is great.
I thought she was a great doctor and really took the time to explain her diagnosis. I will continue going to her.
Very professional, thorough in her explanation, willing to answer questions but will wrap it up quickly if needed.
Definitely in a rush to get you out, and will check her phone during your appointment even if it's 5 minutes long, which mine usually are.
I was looking to establish myself with a primary care doctor after mine moved to to the west coast. Office staff was friendly and great. Doctor was rude and dismissive. My first appointment -the doctor never introduced herself. Without asking me any questions at all she told me that she would just assume I was dieting because I was over weight. She then looked at me and asked me if I was anemic- when I said no and asked why she told me because my eyes looked anemic. I left the office feeling absolutely awful. The doctor over all has great reviews and that is why I made an appointment but even if this was just an off day I don't want to take the chance of going through it again.
Trying to find a new primary care doctor in the city, and Lee knows her stuff! Also well-versed in dietary health, and a good fan of holistic medicine. She's the bomb, even if she has a humble little office.
Had a great experience with the doctor
It was just okay. She was nice but the visit and experience didnt feel personal. Unusually quick visit and that didnt fell good.
Dr. Lee is always great in helping me to stay healthy and get better (when I come in for an illness). The office staff is always nice and it's always a pleasant experience.
Dr. Lee was very professional and had great bedside manner. She was patient and took the time to answer and explain questions in a non-judgmental tone. It did take about 30 minutes to finally see her but in between that time the nurse took my blood and checked blood pressure.
I LOVE Dr. Lee!
Dr. Lee is great. Thorough exam, listened, got me what I needed. Went back to her many times for my general health concerns. I'd still be going back if my insurance hadn't changed.
she's so sweet and kind and thoughtful. she takes the time to explain what she thinks is up and she does not push medications on you. instead she will suggest various supplements and vitamins and is just a good PCP in general.
Always in and out quickly for my annual physical. I've been to Sookwook's office three times and I never had to wait (I schedule on weekday lunch hour). Thorough service, nice assistants, clean office, quick examination, and I get my results in a week.
Dr. Lee went through my test result and explained each chart very thoroughly.
She was incredibly thorough and sweet. Very "mom like" in the idea hat she was concerned about my over all well being! I enjoyed our appointment albeit no more than 10-15 minutes. Exactly what I needed! Would definitely recommend!
The doctor was prompt and her manner was very professional, but the office itself felt kind of shabby and the nurse wasn't very friendly.
she is very nice
All of the staff at Dr. Lee's office are professional and friendly. Dr. Lee is thorough and has a sweet and calm demeanor. She is great answering my questions and is very patient. I chose Dr. Lee a few years ago based on location (she was near my office), but I've changed jobs twice in that time and still go to her. Great doctor!
A great professional who treated me with respect and has continued to help me through multiple health issues! Office is clean, bright, and employees are kind and helpful.
Even though I made the payment for the charges in the office. I was billed again and had to spend a lot of time following up and explaining the office that the payment was already made and I was billed the second time. Lack of accuracy for billing in the office.
Not that accessible and wasn't helpful when I needed to refill my birth control. Apparently the doctor had magically left within ten minutes of me calling to make an appointment to see her at noon. The receptionist, who was extremely unhelpful, told me to go to another doctor. The office is also messy.
I would never visit her again. I always go by the ratings on zocdoc however I was misled by this Dr.'s ratings. The Doctor is EXTREMELY greedy as rightly stated in the reviews on healthgrades.com and yelp.com. For a Paps test she asked me to visit AGAIN! I went there for Paps and general consultation and she gave me a list of sound tests without even examining me. I had a 2:45 appointment and the Doctor did not see me until 4:00 pm. She said "I am not sure" and "I don't know" so many times that I completely lost faith in her. I will never go to this doctor ever in my life. The receptionist is extremely rude and makes faces when you ask her a question. The nurse/lab person is a very nice and kind lady.
great doctor was délayez due to other patients Arriving late for appointment
She was extremely judgemental and wouldn't even listen to me when I had a physical ailment. I kept asking her to look at my rash and she simply turned away and refused to investigate my concern. She simply prescribed a bunch of medications without looking at the illness at hand. I DO NOT RECOMMEND. DO NOT GO TO HER.
Wonderful experience. She was very professional, knowledgeable, and courteous. I will definitely go back.
Though I had to wait for a while to get to Dr. Lee, she was very nice and patiently explained everything to me after all. She's knowledgeable and soft spoken, which made me feel very comfortable. Great experience so far for my first visit! Highly recommend. Advice: make sure you know what your co-pay is supposed to be because the front desk's information may not be most up-to-date to match your insurance. Just remember to discuss with them if there's any discrepancy to avoid overcharge.
Dr. Lee was very professional and her staff was very helpful. Her office is very comfortable. Great experience. I will be returning.
Great Doctor as well as Nurse! Very kind and very knowledgeable.
Dr. Lee is very friendly and helpful!
I never have to wait long. In and out the door 30 minutes or less. This is my second visit.
The office is very outdated and made me very skeptical about the level of care provided here. Dr. Lee was okay but I would not return.
Sookwook is awesome! Very glad to have met her.
Warm, friendly, thorough. Listened to me and gave me some good suggestions. Nice clean office.
CHECK REVIEWS ON YELP BEFORE YOU BOOK. A long story short, I need to make phone calls to find out why my bill is so high.
This was the best pap/lady business check up I've ever had. I was in the front door and out in 15 minutes... With an added flu shot. I am used to freezing my butt off in a paper dress for at least an hour! Front desk was nice, nurse was amazingly nice/funny/ gave the quickest and most painfree shot ever, doctor was quick/ gentle/ through. I will definitely come back.
I highly recommend her. My experience with her it's a lot better than I expected
I felt that Dr. Lee was patient, attentive and understanding. I had seen her and was quite anxious about my medical concern but she explained what was happening to me and took the time to make sure I understood. The check in process was also very quick and seamless. Would
Dr. Lee was great- she went over everything and explained next steps. I was seen right away and the office was clean- the nurse was nice as well.
went early in the morning and waited for about 40 mins but once seen, it was fast. I had a prescription filled and thought I was getting just one of the the medicines we talked about but when I got to the pharmacy they tried to charge me for 2 very expensive items, I opted to only get one and felt like I only needed one as discussed with the doctor. I don't know were the mix up was but wasn't a big deal, I'll definitely go back to see Dr. Lee
Dr. Lee is such a wonderful and caring doctor! I had a great experience and would highly recommend her!
Dr. Lee and her team were all incredibly efficient and welcoming. Dr. Lee herself went into great detail to explain my annual physical results and made me feel like I had a full understanding of my current well being.
She told me depression wasn't a real disorder. She is actually the worst...
Dr. Lee was really nice but her office is weird and dated, not looking super clean.
Everyone is very polite and nice. The Dr. Is very nice and takes her time with u. You don't feel rushed what so ever. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
I booked an appointment with Dr. Lee because I was having sinus issues, and she was the first doctor I could find that was in my network, within walking distance, and had same day availability. Dr. Lee and her staff were all pleasant, however, I cannot recommend her based on my experience. First, the office did not have air conditioning or adequate fans/ventilation. Additionally, Dr. Lee stated that since "I was not running a fever, I did not have an infection". She prescribed an anti-fungal mediciation, after which my headaches and fatigues only worsened. I understand that medicine is often a trial and error science, and my complaint is less that her treatment wasn't effective, but more with her blanket approach of "no fever = no infection" (which is far different than "well you're not running a fever, so I don't THINK it's X). I feel that this attitude was very limiting in her treating me and automatically eliminated many possible causes and treatments for my illness.
Dr. Lee is excellent.
Dr. Lee was great and very straightforward. I enjoyed her approach and she wasn't quick to prescribe antibiotics which I really appreciate as I'm not someone who likes to jump to medications (especially antibiotics) if it can be avoided.
She was very calm and made me feel comfortable. This was my second time visiting her in the past yearwhen being sick. She's been helpful both times!
Almost no wait time. Knowledgeable Doctor, great bedside manner.
Efficient and professional visit.
I appreciate the fact that she takes time to explain in details any concerns you may have pertaining to your health. Not very common now in days. Thumbs up!
She's a very calm person and took her time reviewing me and going into depth of any issues I could possibly have.
Took my 17 year old son to see Dr. Lee for an annual. The office staff was very friendly and they saw my son immediately before I arrived and then the doctor saw him once i got there. All forms were completed timely and I discussed my son seeing Dr. Lee as his primary doctor after he turns 18.
This my 2nd annual visit with Dr. Lee. She answeres all my questions, concerns, and does a great job at going over blood work results!
Very nice and professional. staff was great as well
She is a great doctor I appreciate how she takes the time to really explain things to you.
She was great. No A/C in her office but I mean it's New York not everywhere has A/C. Very friendly and insightful. I feel like she went above and beyond what I asked for and was so nice and considerate.
The staff was very friendly. Dr. Lee was attentive and had excellent bedside manners. Looking forward to stopping by again.
I really liked her- She made me feel comfortable, and she was very calm and thorough explaining. She was speaking in both Korean and English for me which was great. I think I found my primary doctor finally!
Be EXTREMELY careful about doing business with this office. When visiting they lied about my bill. You have been warned.
She is by far the most knowledgeable and caring doctor i have encountered in my 20yrs of living in nyc.
I would highly recommend Dr Lee
Doctor Lee was very professional and helpful. She made me feel very comfortable while getting an exam. Her staff was also very pleasant to work with. I waited in the office for a bit, due to a mixup between the time I was told to arrive and the time I booked my appointment on zocdoc.
Favorite doctor - she doesn't judge and gets the job done
I appreciate that she took the time to go over each vital and test result giving thorough explanation for each.
Kind and friendly doctor.
Dr. Lee is incredibly thorough, testing is performed on site, she is very knowledgeable and careful. Best internist experience ever!
Dr. Lee was very nice, professional, and helpful. My only complaint is that I had to wait an hour to be seen, even though there was barely anyone else in the waiting room.
Excellent - I highly recommend. very thorough and good at figuring out what is wrong!
Doctor Lee was patient and efficient, however she did not explain to me clearly regarding the effects of my medications. It resulted in me getting a heartburn and the worst part is, I was still not cured in the end. This is a torturous process. I do not trust her anymore.
This office does not give you the pricing specifics before the visit, you find out after your visits you owe a lot just to come back and get you blood results.
Professional, informative, polite.
Very professional and very fast. Will definitely be returning here next year.
Dr. Lee was great, she is always so patient and kind. Waiting time is not long which makes her more perfect.
Very nice and helpful. Saw me quickly and answered all my questions.
Dr. Sookwook Lee was very friendly and kind. Her staff was also very accommodating.
The visit was quick and efficient. Dr Lee took the time to sit me down and ask me about concerns and suggested natural methods to help some issues I'm having. She invited me back to review test results in person.
Always so thorough
Everyone at the facility was very friendly. The doctor explained my questions thoroughly. The only problem I faced was the wait time. It took longer than I expected, but I think it has to do with rescheduling. I rescheduled my appointment 5 hours before, but I guess they didn't get the memo.
The staff was pretty efficient, but overall, I did not feel comfortable here and will not be going back. I came for an annual physical and was looking for a new PCP, but I got the feeling from the doctor and the staff that I was expecting too much or asking too many questions about my health. I wanted to get vaccinations and a professional perspective on some newly developed allergies, but the doctor basically said she could only do the bare minimum for me because of insurance. That is understandable, but she was not very welcoming or friendly and was not helpful in terms of referrals. The office also did not seem very clean and I am nervous because my blood was drawn for testing. I think ZocDoc is hit or miss.
Dr. Lee is very knowledgeable and welcoming. The office is clean and quiet which I like very much. She takes the time to talk to you and walk you through your check ups as well as answer all your questions. Doesn't make you feel rushed or unsure about next steps.
Great experience in every aspect of the visit. Extremely kind and helpful staff, comfortable waiting area, knowledgeable and professional doctor... and they even pronounced my last name properly. Highly recommended.
Dr. Lee's staff is courteous and professional. Dr. Lee is a great doctor; very thorough and takes time with her patient to answer questions. Highly recommend her. Her staff is great
Very nice, efficient both nurse and Doctor. She definitely takes her time and is very thorough. Also, she is very direct which I love.
All in all this was a very pleasant experience. The assistant who did the blood draw was excellent; I didn't even feel the needle. Dr. Lee is quite competent and professional but personable as well. The waiting area and office suite is a bit strangely configured, but it feels more hoy than most doctors' offices do. This was a first visit for me as I search for a new primary care doctor, and it seems a good choice. There were a couple of things I wish had been different, but they probably would have been if I had spoken up: I needed an EKG for insurance purposes, and I guess I assumed it would be a regular part of an annual physical, but it wasn't, and I didn't realize I should have requested it until I was on my way home. Also, I wish the assistant had said aloud what the numbers were on all the preliminaries she did, as some do. Again, I realized later that I should have asked for them. I know Inwill see them with everything else when my blood tests come back, but it was a little odd to not be told what they were in the moment.
Dr. Lee and all of her staff members were extremely nice!
Came for an annual physical. The office staff is very efficient. The waiting area reminds me of a(n Asian) living room - which is a good thing because it feels less like a doctor's office.
Terrible physcians assitant, no apprecaition of the patients time, uncomunative, unprofessional.
Both Dr. Lee and the attending nurse were extremely polite and welcoming.
She is very informative and spends a lot of time trying to explain everything clearly. I also find her to be current on advances in medicine regarding women's health issues and very proactive in helping her patients find the right cure to their issues wether they be via medicine or lifestyle changes.
She's very nice and explains everything well
The office was very relaxing. The staff was attentive and polite. Turns out a visit to the doctor doesn't have to always be uncomfortable. 5 Stars from me.
It was great - only problem was the prescribed nasal spray was not covered by my insurance
My visit with Dr. Lee was great. She was attentive and diagnosed me immediately without me having to tell her all of my symptoms. I'm so glad I came to her when I did. She went through all of my lab results with me and explained everything in common language. I would definitely recommend.
Everything was perfect as I walked in Dr. Lee's office, being first time patient I filled in forms and then was sitting in waiting room. Light music was very soothing to ears in the waiting area. A nurse called me for for BP checkup and then again I went back to waiting area. However, this time the seat I found was right in front of speakers, music was not that soothing to ears this time. I would recommend to move the location of speakers from behind the seating area. Rest everything was perfect. Dr Lee gave good attention and explained everything in detail. Good Experience.
The entire staff there is super sweet and attentive. There was no wait time. Everything seemed to be moving smoothly/quickly. She and her staff listen to your concerns and were actually really great company for the hour that I was there (haha). Absolutely recommend!
I called Dr. Lee's office Feb. 5th for an appointment. Today is 2/26/16 and not one person has ever called me back to give me an appointment. I am presently looking for a new medical doctor because I feel this is not how I want to be treated.
I don't give reviews until I have seen a doctor more than 3 times. Dr. Lee is fantastic. I have rarely been to a doctor's office where I didn't have to wait more than 5 minutes to be seen. I don't even use up my whole lunch hour on a visit. No more than 30 minutes in and out. The staff is amazing and Dr. Lee is a gem. She's stern with what she needs from you, but that's beneficial. She may come off as a little too chill, but she is extremely thorough and willing to listen to your ideas. She told me my iron and vitamin D were way too low and I needed shots. I said no and complained that these things weren't covered. (I had a bad experience with an insurance bill with a previous doctor). The nurse ushered me to another room, where I waited. She came back with needles and said Dr. Lee says yes. Roll up your sleeves. I was shocked but she rubbed my arm afterwards and said you'll be fine. And I was dismissed with a follow-up appointment. I was shocked and confused but then I realized that it meant that she cared. During the follow-up for my physical, Dr. Lee turned the monitor so we both could look at my test results. She went down the list telling me each of the things she saw problems with and what was good. At the end she said you are fine, you just have some deficiencies. She did not pull out a prescription pad. She said you need to eat more of this and less of that and you need to take these supplements to get your levels up. She handed me the little slip of paper with her notes. My jaw was on the floor. She actually wanted me to eat better instead of medicating myself. I love her.
She is very kind and concern about patient.
Dr. Lee is great. She took the time to explain my condition and reviewed options with me. Her staff is top notch!
Dr. Lee is a knowledgeable and thorough physician with good bedside manner. She thoroughly explained the cause of my symptoms, and sent the prescription to my pharmacy electronically which was conveniently ready for pickup up by the time I arrived.
Love Dr. Lee! She is so sweet and never rushes through an appointment. She always takes the time to go over your questions and concerns. She also offers suggestions on natural remedies rather than prescription drugs.
My experience was great. Clean, quiet (besides for some light elevator music) waiting room. Receptionist was friendly and helpful. Dr Lee saw me, listened to my problems and gave me helpful advice. Going back next week for a follow up appointment.
always on time, always efficient.
Dr. Lee has a very gentle and calming demeanor that immediately puts you at ease. She cares greatly for your overall health and helps you stay on top of vitamin and nutrient intake and listens attentively to any other concerns you might have. Her staff is also very friendly and with classical music playing the waiting area, it's a soothing place to be.
Love her. She is fantastic .
This was my first time going to see Dr. Lee. Dr. Lee, her nurse and front desk staff were all very nice and had good bedside manner. I did not feel rushed in the appointment. Dr. Lee clearly explained what I had and why I needed certain prescriptions. She sent my prescriptions electronically to my pharmacy which was helpful. I would go back again and recommend her to family and friends.
The check-in and wait was very minimal. The main issue I had with this doctor was over zealous with prescribing medication before receiving results. I had to call them to obtain my lap results which was provided very quickly. However, I received no explanation of the results or the call back that I requested. Overall, I would not use this doctor again.
Both the nurse and the doctor were very nice and attentive.
Wonderful! Warm, kind, professional, reassuring, both doctor and nurse. I was seen very quickly. I will absolutely continue to see Dr. Lee.
Dr Lee is amazing! She has been treating me for over a year and is lovely to work with. Her old school approach is what keeps me going back. My family members now go to her as well. Definitely recommend!
Very good, Very understandable, and Very peaceful environment .
Love that you can go in and be seen in under an hour.
Very nice, took the time to explain little things to me. Definitely staying with her as my primary care.
Took me a decade, but finally found a wonderful GP. Dr. Lee took the time to explain things in depth, even throwing in a little of the science behind the medical advice, which I loved. She treats me like an adult human being and I feel well cared for in her hands. Everyone at the office is friendly and accommodating. Wait times aren't terrible -- around 30 minutes -- but even when I have an early appointment, or I'm just getting a vaccine booster shot I've had to wait.
Always a pleasure. Staff is quick and wonderful.
Very professional, organized office. Minimal wait time. They were open on New Years Eve.
It was ok. Nothing special. Her nurse was better in my opinion. I went in for a pregnancy test and it came out negative and she claimed that her tests were very accurate. Wrong. I got another test done (in addition to the 3 at home tests it took) and they were all positive. When my test came back negative she told me to come back in 2 weeks to take another one. Nope. The place was nice but I probably wouldn't go back.
I have quite a few things to say about this office. Firstly, twice this doctor diagnosed me and I had to go to another doctor to treat the same issue. Secondly, they will tell you to have two examinations or two sets of blood-work done and disregard the fact that your insurance only covers one and charge you for the second and not tell you until you get a bill. HORRIBLE. Thirdly, IF you happen to need to verify your transactions and get a receipt from them, they will charge you a fee because they cannot afford to take a minute to send a digital receipt. They will justify this by saying that a lot of people ask for this. No other office would have this policy. Update your system to send digital receipts. It's 2015.
Very professional.clear and accurate assessment of my issues; impressed with recommendations. Happy to go back when necessary.
Dr. Lee and her staff were very kind and very thorough. I intend to keep Dr. Lee as my PCP.
Really liked doctor lee and that she suggested some lifestyle changes before medication
This doctor is more concerned with milking your insurance company more than anything else. Dr. Lee wanted me to come in to the office refill a nasal spray!!! Mind you I came in three times in 3 months already.
My appt was at 9, I was there by 8:40, started doing the routine annual stuff by 9:05 - not bad at all, clean office, quiet & friendly staff. Friendly doctor as well. Looking forward to keeping her in my roster :)
The doc. is very kind and well cares patient. explained my health condition very well.
The staff is very friendly. I arrived 15 minutes before my appointment and was seen right after I signed in. Dr. Lee was very kind and explained all procedures to me -- it was very refreshing! I've been bouncing around from provider to provider trying to find someone with a good bedside manner, and I'm glad I finally found this office. Highly recommended! Will definitely return.
It was real good and easy! I'm very impatient so I was excited that I didn't have to wait!
I go into the office and I am immediately told to sign in, no one asks for my insurance just to sign in. I go into a consultation office where they get my blood pressure and asked where are my blood test I asked for. They said I have no idea what you're covered with, you should have done your homework. Why didn't anyone call me to do that before I went into the office and waited 45 mins for an appointment?
ver kind and thorough - i recommend her gladly!
Dr. Lee is always very helpful with her patients' health (albeit, I only know how she takes care of me), which is why I keep coming back to her. The entire process didn't take long and they were able to take me early, so I was pretty appreciative of that. She has a great bedside manner and helpful in providing insight on any possible health issues.
Dr. Sookwook Lee was very professional and informative. She took her time to ensure she was getting all the facts and made sure she was covering everything. I had a very positive experience and highly recommend her.
She's great! I'm always seen very quickly when I arrive and she listens and gets me what I need.
As I already know what I had it was fairly quick but good. She was very nice.
Dr. Lee is amazing! She sits down with you to go over the results so that you fully understand what the data means.
I had my very first appointment with Dr Lee this morning. Even though I had to wait for about 30 minutes, the service was good. The clinic is very clean and spacious. The doctor was really good - took time to give additional advice and showed me charts that were relevant to my condition/treatment. I would recommend her and definitely going back here!
Great bedside manner and gets to the point on results and how to remedy things. Definitely recommend.
The staff was friendly and professional, the space was calm and clean, and the doctor answered all my questions and was clear and direct.
She sneak in some blood test for the anual check up, I had to pay insane amount of money to the lab... and they keep forgetting to put insurlance info. Also, she kept us keep coming for very minor reaso, so she took the fee each time.
I have been to a couple of other doctors in the city, and Dr. Lee is by far my favorite. I've waited more than an hour at another doctor's office, but Dr. Lee got me in right away - even on the day of scheduling. She is incredibly professional and doesn't waste time, which I loved! I will definitely be going back to Dr. Lee for my medical needs.
Dr. Lee is a great doctor. She is exactly what you want in an OBGYN- knowledgeable and caring, but to the point without any frills or judgements.
Dr. Lee is lovely! She's very knowledgable, personable and professional. Highly recommend.
Dr. Lee is fantastic! She is very thorough and straight to the point. She takes the time to explain test results and why she recommends certain treatments. I had been suffering from a chronic cough for years and have gone to a couple of different doctors to get a diagnosis. I've gotten chest x-rays and allergy tests but still came up with no results. No one seemed to be able to find the answer. I finally found Dr. Lee through ZocDoc and after our first check up she suspected that I had nasal drip syndrome. She prescribed me a nasal spray to try out before continuing further tests. It was the easiest treatment to try for the amount of of years I have gone not knowing how to alleviate my cough. Immediately I started noticing improvement and a year later I am almost cough free! I am so glad I went to Dr. Lee and have found all my visits very pleasant. I recommended her to my friends and husband!
I had a simple issue but I still felt like she could have spent a bit more time with me. Slightly rushed. With that being said, I wouldn't mind visiting her again for minor problems.
Overall okay, felt a little rushed through the visit. Also, if you're planning on switching primary care doctors to this office, know that she will not continue prescriptions or even answer questions about basic antidepressants, even if you already had been prescribed by another doctor and just need a refill when you switch to her office. Kind of disappointing in that respect.
Great bedside manner, thorough, friendly staff. Overall a very good experience.
I didn't feel as if she checked me well.. I felt rushed out of her office.
For a quick and easy physical is fine but not long-term. ICharged co-pay for a physical and then tried to do the same for a simple follow up.
Painless .. Very nice and sweet
Dr Lee is through and offers suggestions incorporating nutrition and behavior modification. Everyone in the office is pleasant.
Dr. Sookwood Lee and her staff are amazing – comforting, warm, patient. And the office has a great feeling to it. Very clean, but more like visiting a spa than a doctor's office. In a good way.
I am always seen right away. Both her and nurse are always so pleasant, kind and thorough. Love her!
Very thorough. Put all into layman's terms instead of using fancy jargon. Office is clean and cozy. She didn't rush through the appointment, nor drag out her time with nonsense. She's not the kind of doctor that tries to sell things to patients.
I received a tetanus shot and barely felt a thing! Dr. Lee is magic. Everyone is the office was very professional, warm, and I was seen within 5 minutes of arriving in the waiting room. Highly recommend!
I really liked how Dr. Lee took the time to explain test results in a very comprehensive matter. For that attention to patients I recommended her to a friend. But I stopped visiting this clinic because all tests (no matter how small) had to be discussed in person with the doctor which took up a lot of time and primarily because she refused to refill the mild anti-depressant prescription that I'd been on for 5+ years without the consultation of a psychiatrist first. Too many hurdles for what should be simple visits.
I disliked coming here. She's not personable & she rushed the whole appointment. I was with her for seriously 6 minutes. She didnt ask enough questions and just said "huh huh" to al of my concerns.
She listened and took her time with me.
She is knowledgable and thorough - best doctor visit I've had in a few years.
Although, the MD is knowledgeable and concise in her advise. Her staff is slow reacting and often unresponsive to emails.
I love it here! I came in early and they took my early! Everyone is very nice and it's the cleanest office I've ever seen! Dr.Lee is extremely professional and always thoroughly explains everything to me. She's also very computer savvy and will send the RX off right away to the Duane reade down the street!
Very friendly and willing to answer all your questions. Great bedside manner.
Had an okay experience here, but the administrative staff was pretty rude and unhelpful. The doctor was nice and seemed very knowledgeable, but I got the feeling that some of the procedures she performed were unnecessary.
She didn't have enough info to be able to figure out why I have the symptoms I'm having since the tests came back negative. She also didn't prescribe any unnecessary medication either. I have a visit with a specialist and once that is completed and she has more info, I'm hoping she'll help me to pin down the root cause of my symptoms. Overall, she was a good listener and really wanted to assess the whole situation rather than just the symptoms. I like her a lot and highly recommend her.
She was very kind, but not exactly what I'm looking for.
I went here for a one off Pap smear/Gyno check-up because I was worried about a few things. I know this office isn't solely a OB/GYN but the room in which I had my exam was VERY tiny, it barely fit the exam table. Anyway, Dr. Lee was very quick and painless but made me feel like there wasn't enough time for questions.... Not sure I would see her again for a gyno exam but maybe for a regular physical! Must add- office was is very nice and clean and my wait time was less than 5 minutes. They also called in my prescription within minutes. Awesome :)
She was great as always
I went in for a standard annual physical exam. The staff was very nice and welcoming. Dr. Lee was very patient and explained everything that she was doing and what I need to focus on and next steps. Very thorough and a good listener as well. I find doctors in NYC seem rushed but she was very patient.
I had a very good visit. The doctor was very knowledgeable and made me feel at ease. We laughed together and she gave me some much needed advice. I welcomed her warmth and sincerity. I will defintiely make another appointment with her.
Dr. Lee is thorough and honest; she works as though she really cares for her patients. Wait time is not awful, office is a little small and on the older side, but so convenient on the same block as the 34th street stop (32nd street entrance). Would recommend her for friends and family; have been working with her for almost 2 years.
They messed up the paper work related to my bloodwork. They had me as a middle aged male when I'm a female in my late twenties. Their staff can't speak proper english- very slow. I'm in search for another family physician.
my visit was very good. She was very friendly. The only thing I would comment on is that she was too much in a rush to leave and i had to stop her to ask questions regarding my visit.
She is great and so is her staff! They make you feel comfortable
I am please. She explain clearly the problems. I am glad she don't pushes medication, instead she told me about supplements that can help.
Appointment was good and Dr. Lee is very nice. A bit of a wait but nothing crazy. The office isn't very doctor's office-like, but if aesthetics don't bother you, I'd recommend it!
While Dr. Lee is great herself, her team and her were the exact opposite of helpful in setting up a referral for me as my primary care physician. While the Dr. did in fact write me a referral slip, when it came time to fill out the needed paperwork and send it to my specialist, their office refused to believe of acknowledge that I even had coverage. My insurance company LITERALLY called them to assure them that I did have coverage, and they still did not fill out the paperwork. Furthermore, when I went in for a TB immunization, they then billed it to the wrong code and charged me for it, when in fact my insurance does cover it. I'm saddened and disappointed in the lack of professionalism at this office when it comes to billing and referrals and the lack of respect that they have had for my word along with the word of my INSURANCE COMPANY. Really not sure why they had to make this all so difficult. But they did.
She took her time to explain everything to me. Made recommendations on different treatment possibilities and made me feel very good and well taken care of.
She was very attentive and diagnosed me on the spot! She also sent my prescription right away.
Dr. Lee was very knowledgeable and spoke to me with patience and kindness, answering all of my questions. Highly recommend.
The provider was nice, but tried breaking up appointments into too many visits and so I decided not to go back.
Dr. Sookwook Lee is great. She was very attentive and took care to explain technical terms. She will be my physician in NY!
Awesome very thorough!
Very nice and very professional.
Dr. Sookwook Lee was very nice. She was extremely thorough and thoughtful during my first check up with her. I will be going back to her and would recommend her to anyone looking for a great primary physician!
She is very thorough!!
I had to fight charges with this dr's office. They said I came in with symptoms when I only came in for an annual check up. My insurance only covers the annual check up so I spent two months going back and forth with them and my insurance trying to get the charges dropped.
My visit to the practice was fine, Dr. Lee was nice and professional, wait time was reasonable. A few months after the appointment, I needed a refill for asthma medication and my pharmacy called the office and they were not responding. I called in to see what the issue was. Apparently Dr. Lee is out of town for a week and there is no way for them to issue prescription refills. I told them it was for asthma and that it I couldn't exactly go a week without breathing. They told me they didn't have any way to help and that I needed to find another doctor. Oh I will be.
She was extremely thorough and personable. Also she was peaceful, which is the best trait a doctor can have after being knowledgeable. I highly recommend this doctor and her entire office.
excellent, thorough and thoughtful.
Always attentive and timely and incredibly friendly 10 out of 10
Dr . Lee is absolutely wonderful! She's very attentive to my needs and concerns. She takes her time to really get to the source of whatever medical concerns your having issues with and then she takes care of it. I never leave her office without feeling completely taken cared of. I will always recommend Dr. Lee to my family and friends.
fast, convenient, very helpful
Great first visit with Dr Lee; her staff is nice, and Miriam was great and even made me laugh when taking a blood sample. Couldn't have gone much better!
Dr. Lee was extremely professional, addressed my symptom immediately, and sent my prescription to my nearest pharmacy as I was sitting in her office. I was there for a total of 30 minutes as a new patient. Very pleased with this visit.
Very efficient and comfortable experience. I waited no more than 10 minutes!
Very thorough, knowledgeable. Took the time to explain test results and answer questions patiently. Great bedside manner!
Dr. Lee was incredibly thorough, kind, and professional. I have been looking for a Primary Care Physician, and I think I have found one!
I was happy with her. She examined me and was very clear in explaining and listening.
I had to visit the doctor's office again after I got my routine exam. They called to tell me my result was in but wouldn't share any information over the phone. They would not even tell me whether there was an issues that requires me attention, so I had to visit again and wait another half an hour in the waiting room to find out. I find it a little shady.
Dr. Lee was very thorough. She was willing to listen to any complaint I had and explained the cause and possible treatment. She even pulled out a diagram :) I felt as though I was treated with care. I would recommend her to anyone who asked.
So lovely, personable, kind & attentive. I was blown away at her attention to detail and thoroughness. So excited to have found her.
My second time there and I'm pleased. Very swift and everyone there is very attentive and kind.
Great doctor. Incredibly thorough and really works to explain things to you.
Dr. Lee is very professional and thorough. I felt heard and respected.
I really like Dr Lee, she walks you through the results and gives you recommendations not only on levels that should be corrected but also on what you could eat to increase some levels that are already ok but could be better. She is very thorough, runs tests on everything and compares your levels to previous results also to see how you trend. I feel very confident with her analyses and recommendations.
Would not prescribe anti anxiety medication that I have been taking for years. Waited an hour before telling me. She seemed really nice, just not the right doctor for me.
First visit with this doctor- office was pretty empty. Went for an annual physical, Yes, she was detailed and took her time explaining things, but irrelevant things. It felt more like she was trying to fool myself into having illness and symptoms I am NOT experiencing. I know my previous medical history, and her "illness" and "symptom" assumptions couldn't be more off. I wasn't even going to bother repeating myself as I have already seen dozens of various specialists. As mentioned in a previous review, she tried to push her own specialty of detoxification along with more testing FYI. The kicker, the office tried to get me to schedule a follow up appointment just to "review the annual physical blood work." Like that can't be done via phone, mail or e-mail. I can't take this seriously. Thought this may have been a recommended doctor from the Zocdoc reviews, we'll see if I get over billed for extra tests once the blood work comes back. (That always happens.) The nurse was excellent.
Very friendly administration, nurse, and doctor. It was my first time at the office Dr. Sookwook Lee, MD, and I will come back. Definitely recommend her! Friendly service, on time, and very professional.
Very knowledgeable, clean, and good at diagnosis.
Dr. Lee was great. The entire staff in the office were great. I think I will continue to visit Dr. Lee's office
Quick, right to the point. Dr. Lee explained everything properly so I understand my option in treatment. Very helpful; I am changing my PCP to Dr. Lee.
The Doctor was fine - this office was just pretty sketchy and I was very uncomfortable being there. It did not seem clean. Also, I requested several times for my test results to be sent to my primary care physician, which they never did. I would not return.
Dr. Lee went from being the doctor I picked randomly to being my main doctor. She is so caring, every appointment with her has been a pleasure; I've felt taken care of and never rushed.
Her bedside manner was great and her staff is super friendly and helpful. I might just have to switch primary care doctors!
I went during lunch and everything went smoothly and quickly for my basic checkup.
Right on time, very professional. Highly reccomanded
Dr. Lee was a pleasure to see. Her and the nurse Christy were very professional and friendly. They took their time to ask me thorough questions and explained everything in detail. I never felt rushed to leave at any point. The location is also excellent.
Excellent. Very professional and took the time to explain what was causing the symptoms.
I have seen the Dr Lee multiple times and have always had a positive experience. I would definitely recommend her as she takes the time to explain you some pretty technical and medical stuff, and use words that non-medical people can understand. She also takes the time to listen to your problems and answer any questions you may have. Super friendly, also felt like a mother to me! The staff is also very efficient, professional and kind! I loved going there. It's mostly Korean people of course so if you book an appointment with them, make sure you're comfortable being surrounded by Asians :)
Great, thorough, and quick. Very friendly.
The entire staff was very accommodating and friendly. When I met with the doctor, she sat with me and explained everything that was happening in detail. I never felt rushed or talked down too. I will most certainly be making her my General Practitioner.
The office people, nurse and the doctor is very nice! However, HORRIBLE HORRIBLE OFFICE billing everything for every conversation! She submits lab requests for my annual pap that does not get included in general pap test and bills for that. They bill separate office visits for one visit just because you ask about something. They just yelled at me that I don't understand billing and I have bad insurance.
Excellent doctor - very nice, pleasant and professional. Highly recommended.
Appointment book under 24 hours and the doctor saw me immediately. Very kind!
The office was clea. And the appointment went well. I was seen on time and out in under an hour. The nurse who took care of me prior was attentive and informative. And the doctor went through all of my concearns.
Friendly and knowledgable. Fast service and conveniently located.
Dr. Lee and her staff are quite professional and helped me right away. She is thorough and takes time to explain things clearly. No complaints whatsoever :-)
The doctor was very nice, as was her staff, especially the intake nurse that draws blood. However, I really think this doctor should be clearly classified as one that sways towards homopathic methods. Now im not one that wants a pill-pusher doctor, but she will not prescribe a slew of meds for obvious personal reasons ( i think that this should be noted). Thats totally fine, and she was very soft spoken and nice, but the whole visit felt like I was going to an alternative medicine doctor. I was not expecting this. There were also some strange pauses during the visit that made me question her advice and it felt forced. She even suggested I purchase a lot of vitamins ( they sell packs in the office ) and I just think that it seemed a little unconventional and made me think she just wanted to get me to buy them from her. I think if you are looking for a doctor that really embraces alternative medicines, go to her. If not, be warned.
She was very attentive and considerate of my concerns. i dont have any serious health issues and was only there for an annual physical but I did not feel like she was dismissive of my desires to delve deeper into some symptoms i've been experiencing. **Huge bonus pts to the lovely Filipino nurse who quelched my fear of needles (for the day) by breathing with me and telling me she's seen big, burly men faint from getting their blood taken;) all around a positive exp.!
Dr Lee gave me a full medical and was very quickly able to find out that I had adrenal fatigue and prescribed medication.She took time to explain to me what was wrong using medical diagrams. Overall I am very happy and will continue with her as my doctor.
She was great and very knowledgable. She took her time explaining things.
Great visit- no waiting at all. Very excellent care by Dr. Lee and by Nurse Kristy.
Fantastic doctor - thorough and great bedside manner.
I had to force her to administer a test for an illness I know I had. Her Rx did not work. Upon return, she was not able to provide information on next steps needed on her expertise for a condition she claimed to have so much success treating. My wait time was almost an hour with no apology. Her staff is more efficient and nicer than her in my experience. Will not go again. She likes to dispense medicine, not practice medicine that requires tearing the patient individually.
the wait time a little bit long. closer to 30 minutes but she was really thorough. so im happy.
Excellent. She gave me exactly what I needed and was in and out. Looks like a eastern medicine place but she gave me western stuff which was great. Will def go back.
It isn't uncommon in New York City to wait weeks or months to see a physician. Without being a patient of Sookwook Lee, MD., and two days before a major holiday, I was seen. Dr. Lee was punctual, beginning the appointment at exactly the scheduled time, which happens very rarely in my experience, both in and outside of New York City. Upon very few tests and evaluating my symptoms, she took the time to give a layman's explanation of her diagnosis. I left the office with an understanding of why she was prescribing each of the medications, which is also rare in my experience. Both her staff and Dr. Lee were extremely professional and pleasant. I wish them a healthy and joyful holiday season. Thank you.
The doctor could not tell me which billing code that would be used for a flu shot. Very sketchy. Overall a vary opaque process that I would NOT recommend.
Dr. Sookwood Lee was very informative and helpful during my visit. My wait time was less than 10 minutes even though I had arrived a few minutes late. Although Dr. Lee did not provide the exact service that I needed, she was very informative and took the time to sit with me and discuss any alternatives as well as the information that she could regarding the treatment I wanted. I would recommend Dr. Lee because she was very pleasant, professional, patient and informative. Her staff is also very friendly and helpful.
Dr Lee is a gem. I got so lucky to find such a good new doctor on such short notice right near my office. She is very sweet and always diagnoses me accurately and right away. I highly recommend her! :)
I really liked my experience, Dr. Lee was very kind and informative. I didn't have to wait too long, my entire duration at her office was a little over an hour. I dealt with her and a nurse who were both very nice. I went to her to make her my PCP and think I'll be happy with her
Dr. Lee was thorough and precise. She did not rush and took her time explaining what my symptom might be. I would highly recommend her.
Quick and informative visit.
Dr. Lee is excellent and her staff is very professional and organized. I highly recommend her!
She was very professional and took the time to explain what was wrong with me. I would gladly go back to her for any health problems.
Dr. Lee was very professional. She's soft spoken and to-the-point, but I liked that. When other people have asked me whether I recommend her or not I simply say that each person is looking for something different in a doctor, but I recommend that everyone try her. If she's not for you then she's not. But it was a great appointment for me and her staff was wonderful as well.
No one LOVES seeing a doctor. But that is why I come see Dr. Lee and her staff for all of my needs. Everyone is friendly and I feel like my time is valued! I never wait longer than 5-10 minutes to be seen; Dr. Lee, receptionists and nurses are extremely patient and professional... and they try their best to accommodate your schedule when making appointments
I had to wait over an hour for test results from an annual physical to tell me that everything was good and I was healthy. Just email the results and say unless we say come in you're fine.
Dr. Lee was super helpful and explained where I was in my health and how to improve it. She was a sweet woman and was very detailed. She didn't seem like she was just trying to get me out the door like most doctors do.
Office staff was very kind and friendly. Everyone was prompt. Dr. Lee's nurse was also very nice, did not even feel any pain when she took my blood. Dr. Lee explained why I might have my symptoms, even draw a chart to further explain.
Very pleasant experience. And very efficient, and thorough.
The very best. Amazing staff too.
Dr. Lee has a great bedside manner and was very informative during my appointment. I would recommend her to everyone!
She made me feel comfortable. She was thorough and quick .
Dr. Lee is professional, thorough, takes time to explained what I needed to know to maintain my health. I feel comfortable and she makes me feel less anxious about my health. The staff are also professional and efficient. The wait is not long. I highly recommend this clinic.
The RN's were very pleasant and everyone was nice.
I recommend Dr. Lee. She is patient and thorough.
I felt very comfortable with Dr. Lee right away.
Dr. Lee is amazing. She is very thoughtful and caring. She's accessible and her office is very cheerful. Everyone there is great!
Dr. Lee is great, but the wait time was long and the medical assistants are unprofessional.
I would recommend anyone who is in need of a primary physician to go see Dr, Sookwook Lee.
Office is clean, relaxing, even somewhat tranquil. Dr. Lee is very informative with explaining test results and dietary questions. My physical exam, however, felt rather cold, rushed and impersonal. Younger (20s and 30s) patients may wish to look elsewhere, as Dr. Lee appears to specialize in treating older clients.
She requires a new appointment for every single thing instead of just handling it all when you're there.
Dr Lee is very knowledgeable and thorough, but isn't very personable. I like her so I will continue to see her and do recommend as long as you don't mind the occasional snarky comment.
Very friendly and efficient staff. My visits here are always quick & on time. Dr. Lee is very patient and listens to my issues, and when she recommends something she would write it down for me to take away (in case I forget) which is very helpful. I've returned twice already since my first visit.
Dr. Lee is very attentive, patient, and she takes her time to listen to patient concerns. I never feel rushed when I see her and she is always helpful. She asks a lot of good questions and has a very good bedside manner. I highly recommend her!
The office and staff was wonderful- wait time is short. Dr. Lee was knowledgeable, kind and informative. She put me at ease with her nice personality & felt at ease during my physical. She was also very informative and let me know where I needed to improve to even better my health. I really liked her and will be back in 6 months for another check up.
Dr. Lee takes the time to listen to your concerns and is very gentile.
Dr. Lee takes her time and was thorough in giving me a physical and recommendation. And she took her time on reading and explaining my result. Everyone there is attentive, professional and informative.
I would see her again very professional.
Very quick and painless. I'm deathly afraid of needles and I didn't even feel it! Thank God they actually care.
Caring and efficient staff, thorough and kind doctor! I truly felt that Dr. Lee and her staff cared about me and went above and beyond to help me!
I made an appointment with Dr. Lee to address numerous health concerns, which were noted when I scheduled my visit. However, it wasn't until my appointment was almost over that the doctor told me she would only consult me on one ailment at a time and that in order to address the other issues, I would need to schedule another appointment with her. I thought this was extremely odd because I've seen many other doctors at different practices, and this was never an issue before. I suspect it was because the doctor wanted to collect multiple co-payments instead of treating everything in one visit, which I personally feel is a bit unethical. Because of this, I will not be returning to Dr. Lee and I will be scheduling my follow up appointments with another doctor.
Was completely dismissive about my chief complaint!
I was happy with my visit. She listened to what I had to say and was pretty thorough in giving me a physical.
Always very professional and friendly and addresses my concerns.
Everything was great except I felt that the Dr. Lee didn't listen to me or ask me questions about my problems. She simply told me what was wrong with me. The staff is great, she is very nice, but I need a doctor who asks me whats wrong not immediately assumes my lifestyle and tells me. It was quite annoying.
Dr. Lee is very nice and responsive. I asked a lot of questions and she took the time to answer all of them in detail. I didn't feel rushed or like I was just another nameless face. She sent my prescription to the pharmacy of my choosing while I was still in the office - saves some time and hassle for me. The rest of the staff is also nice, but the wait time was almost an hour. Considering I have to go during work hours (as I imagine many people have to), an hour is very long to wait.
She is very knowledgeable and makes me feel very comfortable. Her staff is great too.
Very attentive, professional and informative. Extremely thorough with examination
Everyone was very pleasant and hospitable. Dr. Sookwook was patient, answered all questions and throughly gave explanations.
Dr. Sookwook was very thorough. She even called me after I had left because upon further review of my chart, she wanted to update my prescription. Her staff was nice and organized. I am going to stay with her being my PCP.
Excellent doctor. I switched away from her only because I moved and was looking for someone closer to where I live. She was very good at listening to my concerns and explaining things. She also did a quick exam and discovered another issue that I hadn't originally come in for. Very thorough exam and a great experience especially if you're looking for a wholistic type of doctor but she's also wonderful if you're looking for something general as well.
I loved my visit with Dr. Lee! Her staff was nice and organized and Dr. Lee was very thorough and attentive. I felt comfortable and will definitely be returning.
Always professional, takes her time, answers questions fully. Highly recommended.
Easy to talk with and understand my medical needs.
Dr. Lee was very kind, courteous, and professional. I was seen right away. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Overall, a very good experience.
Excellent caring attitude. makes you feel comfortable.
Love coming here. Visit #2 and they were prompt (not immediate, a 10 minute wait, but that is amazing at a dr office as is) as last time, they remembered me well from my previous visit, and took the time to handle what I needed.
She was very patient and thorough with her examination. I recommend her!
Great doctor. She takes her time with you and is very thorough! She makes sure she explains everything to you and isn't quick to prescribe meds unless she knows what's going on. Definitely happy I finally found a doctor I am glad to go back to.
It went well. She takes her time and answer questions thoroughly. Very nice lady.
I was generally disasppointed with this visit. I felt that all of my needs were not met and that all of my concerns were not addressed. I felt that the doctor was cold and was not thorough. She was not listening to what I was saying but rather she was only interested in my presenting symptoms. She dumbed down concepts to me that I am familiar with. I would not recommend this doctor.
I enjoyed the visit completely and will be following up next week. I have a myriad of health problems, so a good dr is very important to me.
I felt very comfortable and welcomed in Dr. Lee's office. She gave professional feedback and conducts a very trustworthy office.
i don't think she should have charged me for the 1 min's consultation.
This was my first visit with Dr. Lee. She was very nice and attentive. I'll know more about her and how she manages her patients during my next visit when we go over my results. Overall I have no complaints.
Great doctor. very friendly.
I loved her. She was extremely approachable and made us comfortable right away. The clinic has great ambience. It was a wonderful experience.
Her treatment is good, my cold is getting better.
Professional, caring and concise. Put me at ease.
Dr. Sookwook Lee and staff were extremely pleasant and warm. Will definitely recommend her. No frills , simple to the point approach
very friendly staff and doctor, would definitely come back.
She was very courteous and patient. Very informative and knowledgeable. Made feel very comfortable especially since it was my first time.
Dr. Sookwook Lee was amazing! She listened to my concerns, examined me, gave me her feedback, she was nice and to the point - and very accurate! Office is super clean, staff is welcoming and warm, and they are very punctual. I was like 45 secs in the waiting room. I would definitely be back with her if it wasn't that my company switched insurance and she's not part of my network anymore. Definitely a 5 star doctor!
Very professional and friendly. No complaints!
Very nice Dr. Took her time to go over all of the blood results and explain everything. The only problem I had was that they send my blood to a out of network lab which created a billing issue for me. Make sure you check what your insurance covers because they don't seem to do that.
She's very soothing, comforting and thorough.
I've never had a doctor schedule time with me to go over results. Usually if I don't get a call back, then it means everything's fine, but I really appreciated that the doctor explained what they checked for during the physical exam/ pap smear.
Dr. Lee is very kind & has a very gentle approach. Yet she is extremely thorough in her exams & testing~ leaving no stone unturned. She takes your time with you & goes through your test results in a way that you can fully understand what is going on & exactly what you need to get better. I have never found a doctor as smart & good as she. She has answered the questions & found the solutions that I have been looking for over twenty years doctors! & I absolutely love her staff! They are all so friendly. I look forward to going to her office every time~ I feel lucky to have such a professional team :)
She was kind and very informative.
Dr. Lee was very professional, patient and thorough.
TERRIBLE! I WILL NEVER GO BACK TO THIS COLD, RUDE, POOR EXCUSE FOR A DOCTOR!
Great doctor very efficient ! Friendly staff, clean office - VERY VERY VERY knowledgable
Very organized and professional. Diagnosed and got my meds with no hassle. Highly recommend.
Wonderful experience all around! Very knowledgeable, patient and caring.
Dr. Lee was so helpful and informative. She gave me her honest advice and I will definitely be rescheduling follow ups with her.
Very courteous, and amiablr
Went in because of concern with pain that had been going on for months. She have me a check up and then told me to touch base in 3 months?! She said that no further testing is necessary. Ummm if I'm in pain why not look into it more rather than just brush me off for 3 months? Nice lady but I will not be going back.
I didn't feel that I was really listened to. The nurse and doctor both sticked to the questions standard questions and didn't listen to any elaboration. I was laughed at a couple of times despite obviously being on the verge of tears. I was so nervous to see a doctor, that being dismissed like that over and over was very hard for me. Spent more time crying after my appointment than I did at the doctor's office.
Excellent first visit. Looking forward to my follow-up.
Dr. Lee listened and met my needs right away. I walked in to her office hardly able to breathe and received treatment right away. Im very appreciative.
She and her staff were very nice and competent.
Dr. Lee was pleasant and thorough. I felt quite cared for.
Sookwook is the model for which I which all doctors would follow. Seeing Sookwook was a delight and helped me very much.
My visit was great! My visit was fast and my wait time wasn't long. she got everything right and her staff was very welcoming and nice.
Dr. Lee was very nice and made me feel comfortable. She didn't rush through the appointment and addressed all of my concerns.
First time visit and good experience. I will bring the remainder of my family from hereon...
Dr. Lee is great. It took me awhile to find a primary care doctor in NY, and most doctors I've been to seemed dismissive of concerns and rushed through the appointment. Dr. Lee is efficient, friendly, and thorough. He staff is also very friendly. I've recommended her to several friends.
The office staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Dr. Lee saw me right away and was not only efficient and knowledgeable, but had a calming manner about her. It was a very good experience.
She is a fabulous woman!! Put a puzzle together for me as to why I was feeling the way I was and uncovered alignments I didn't know were present. Simply wonderful!! Highly recommended.
She makes you feel at ease and is very nice!
Decent office, pleasant staff, short wait. Great visit.
Excellent walk through of results. Very thoughtful and attentive.
Very kind and professional staff. The doctor was informative and compassionate. I was stunned actually, as my last doctor was kind of a mess and subjected me to 30 min waits every time I had an appointment. I feel very lucky I found Dr. Lee and her staff.
Dr. Lee took the time to listen to me and to explain exactly what she found wrong. I really appreciated her patience, kindness and her willingness to give me all the information I asked for. Highly recommend!
I was seen promptly and both Dr Sookwook and the nurse were very friendly.
I really liked her, she explained very well and keeps you calm. She will definitely be my primary care from now on.
Very professional. I felt very comfortable from the start and she's very thorough in answering questions. I've been visiting her weekly and each time her staff has been super friendly.
Her staff is really nice and professional. However, the time you spend with the Dr. feels extremely rushed. It seems like they schedule people every 15 minutes and need to meet their quota for the day. I went in for an annual physical, which took... 10 minutes. I understand that some people simply want to check off that they have gotten a physical and might not care about how thorough it is, but I was actually looking to have some of my questions answered. I was also getting my blood drawn and was asked to come back in a week for a follow-up appointment. I made sure to ask if I won't have to pay the copay for the second time coming back. The lady at the reception assured me that I won't have to, but when I came back next week she said she must have misspoken because there actually is a second copay for the office visit. I told her that I wouldn't pay because that's not what she told me and when she realized that I won't back down she said it's fine. Overall, I will not be going back for my physical next year.
Very personable and professional . Great staff.
Her staff knew more about common medications that I take for diabetes than did she. She never called with x-ray results nor did she call back when I called Pushing other treatments and additional visits before solving my initial issues
The staff was very friendly, the visit went well and all my questions were answered.
I thought the dr was thorough and informative. I will be back.
She is as sweet as she looks! She was extremely nice, caring, and attentive during my exam.
Doctor is great, very soft spoken (which I like very much). Wait to see the doctor was approx 30 minutes.
I like Dr. Lee very much (first time visit for an annual check up) but the only area I gave a four star was for the wait time. Dr. Lee was very professional, explained things I didn't even think to ask and was very thorough with the exam. The nurse was also very professional and had a great personality.
It was ok.. I waited longer than I thought I would about 20 mins. I didn't really get an accurate reason for my pain on my ribs. I would probaly go back but just fro a general physical.
Doctor Sookwook is a very knowledgeable practitioner. She isn't a superficially friendly or energetic doctor, but calm and professional. The staff and medical center are easy going and abide well by the appointment times. Another point I'd like to make is that after doing some full blood work, she covered my vitamin/mineral/hormone levels with informative explanations. Her recommendations have been far more beneficial to my care than many medical professionals in the past. Awesome!
I love everything about Dr. Lee and her office! It's lovely, warm, personable, comfortable and calm. Everyone is very sweet and professional and Dr. Lee is by far the best doctor I've ever seen. She is very professional, kind, knowledgeable, patient and calm. And SUPER nice!
Professional and nice
I was looking for a PCP for a while and Im glad she is now it!
Dr Lee was very sweet & quick. From start to finish it took about a half hour and she called in my prescription, so by the time I walked the 9 blocks to the pharmacy it was already there and ready to pick up!
Dr Lee was nice. I only had a regular annual physical but she answered all the questions well and seemed knowledgeable.
So glad I found her, she's my new doc of choice! The practice is very well run, from friendly staff, efficient booking process, to overall clean and comfortable location. The waiting area has calm music and a good selection of magazines. Bathroom was very clean. They do blood work, EKG, etc. at the location, except X-ray. The nurse was very perceptive, explained everything she was about to do. She took blood and I could barely feel the needle. Dr. Lee herself took a lot of time to listen, I felt she had a genuine interest in me as her patient. Her examination was very professional. She explained things in an easy to follow manner, using her book of medical images to explain. After jumping from one doc to another over the last years I'm really glad I found her.
Dr. Lee was very professional and attentive. She takes time to hear all of your concerns and will get to the bottom of whatever it is you're having health issues with so that you get the proper health treatment. Overall, she's fantastic and I highly recommend Dr. Lee.
I liked her approach. I have a follow-up appointment and will know better how I feel moving forward. But my initial impression is a really good one. I plan to see Dr. Lee in the future.
very plesant. very thoughtful doctor.
Dr. Lee is very calm and gentle - answered all my questions and on the appt. took no longer than 20 minutes. Like other reviewers have said, she took out a book to really explain what was going on with my body, which I really appreciated.
She is such a caring and patient doctor. All the physicians I've had in the past have been great, but there was something about her that was different- she took the time to explain things to me and took out an anatomy book. Best doctor I've ever met.
I had my annual physical in Dr. Lee's office. It was standard (though the blood test seemed more comprehensive than other places). I think if you specifically ask for some tests to be done, Dr. Lee would definitely do it, but you have to be proactive.
Nice office, friendly staff, they made me feel so comfortable, the nurse is amazing, dr. lee took her time and explained everything to me and gave me her recommendations. They run the office pretty efficiently, almost no waiting time.
I was in and out in 30 minutes. Can't beat that!
Don't be intimidated by the signs that Dr. Lee's specialty is anti-aging and rejuvenation. Dr. Lee was great as a PCP, especially for an annual physical. Her staff is very friendly and accommodating. I was able to get my blood work done at the location, which I've heard is rare in NYC. Also, I had a follow-up appointment with Dr. Lee a week later where we reviewed the results in-person and she walked me step-by-step through how I could change my eating and activity habits to improve my health. I would definitely recommend Dr. Lee as a PCP.
I've finally found a great primary doc. I've seen her 3 times, and each time she's been so thorough with her evaluation. I felt comfortable and never felt rushed. She went through every detail of my annual physical test results while providing holistic remedies to aid in some of my deficiencies, which I appreciate greatly. All in all Dr. Lee is wonderful.
Dr. Lee was extremely thorough and listened to my concerns. She took time to explain everything to me.
I had a short visit with Dr. Lee to have a prescription written and it was a pleasant experience. Dr. Lee was nice and patient and answered all my questions.
Dr. Lee and her staff were very friendly and made me feel at ease. Dr. Lee's practice definitely reflects that she specializes in family medicine and can treat a wide range of things. When you first get off the elevator it looks like you are in an anti aging spa, which was a little off putting. Thankfully the Dr. and her RN/PA were very knowledgeable and helpful.
Dr. Lee is the consummate professional. I came in for a pre-surgical visit and she handled the requirements very quickly and concisely. Once the obligations were met she shared with me some general health issues people my age have and recommended some tests not required for the pre-surgical but that she felt I should consider. Very, very good doctor.
My follow up appointment with Dr Lee went way better than my first appointment 2-3 weeks ago. When I arrived, I probably only waited 5 minutes and the receptionists were nice and smiley. The Doctor answered all of my questions and like the first appointment, would take time to explain me how the body worked. She even drew on a piece of paper to help me understand! She finally prescribed antibiotics (which I wish she did when I first visited but I guess she didn't think my case was that bad, even though I told her I had been coughing for a while). Hopefully, I'll be fully recovered within the next few days or else, I probably will not return to this medical center...
Dr. Lee was very nice and thorough. I would visit again for an annual exam.
Although there were no other patients, and she returned to her office immediately after seeing me, she rushed through my appointment very quickly. I was there for a standard yearly exam, and she didn't even do a quick breast exam. i understand I am young, (27) but this seems like a simple and quick extra that every gynocologist I've ever had has done. I do breast exams on myself, but it's always nice to have the reassurance that the Dr. also doesn't feel anything. I was there primarily to refill my birth control prescription, but she never even asked me about birth control, which seemed odd, and I was feeling so rushed and hectic that I almost walked out of the office without mentioning it. Overall, she was pleasant enough, but especially given the empty office at the time, really need not have rushed. She got the job done, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend her, and will probably not return.
I scheduled an appointment for 5:45pm because I had been coughing a lot and when I got there (on time, by the way), a male employee said "that late?" and I was like "well, I scheduled an appointment for 5:45 pm (?!)". That felt so rude. Then the lady asked me to fill out some medical paperwork and I told her I had filled out everything online through ZocDoc. She said she could not figure out how to use the printer or that it was not working for some reason. After 10 minutes, she finally was able to print. I thought it was weird but anyway, after 30-40 minutes, I'm finally able to meet with Dr Lee. Very nice and friendly, etc. Nothing to complain about. She prescribed me some nasal spray and recommended I should buy Claritins for allergies and take the medicines for two weeks. After two weeks, I'm still sick and if anything, it got worse to the point where my ribs now hurt when I cough. I called them telling them I still felt sick and they said I should come back for another appointment. I just feel like I've wasted 2 weeks of my life and am now just quite upset that my conditions got worse!
Dr. Sookwook and her staff are very quiet but efficient. I went around 12:30am and the office was empty. I was one of two patients being seen. No wait and a thorough check up. I will be going here again.
Dr. Lee was very patient and really listened to what you had to say. She was very receptive to my own ideas for courses of treatment and suggested really intelligent and logical alternatives as well. The office staff was very friendly - I plan on returning!
Very professional and helpful, knew exactly what I needed and received antibiotics right away, nice and clean office, will be making Dr. Lee my new practitioner!
Dr. Lee is kind, intelligent, and I felt comfortable with my first visit. Staff was lovely and informative. Would absolutely recommend this dr!
Clean office, short wait time, and nice staff.
Not good. I was made to wait for a long time and then when I finally saw her, it wasn't good. She managed to miss the huge bug bite that I have covering the entire back of my right thigh and instead noticed the normal one on my shin, telling me it was just a mosquito bite. When I said "no, the one I'm gesturing to" she said "oh...." and barely glanced at it before writing me a generic prescription and sending me on my way. Now it has doubled in size and she left at 1pm, so she can't help me. Nice.
Really sweet and patient. I felt reassured and grateful!
it was good, she was very nice and made me comfortable
I went early, at about 10 A.M. so it was definitely a nice time period to go right before work, very quiet in the office. Dr. Sookwook Lee was very nice and thorough about my annual physical exams, explained everything and made some recommendations on how to better my health. Only negative thing I'll have to say is that her nurse took a while to find my vein..I actually nearly fainted but she was also cautious and had Dr. Sookwook tend to me right away after and she took my blood instead. Will definitely come here again!
Very convenient to where I live, beautiful office with classical music playing in the waiting room! Helpful nurses and receptionists. I highly recommend Dr. Lee.
Very professional and kind. Will definitely return
Nurses were very friendly and polite. Great office space. Doctor was also very nice!
She's very sweet and informative. I've been to specialists before and Dr. Lee gave me more information than any of them. She's the best.
Staff was nice. Place was clean. Doctor was professional and listened to my concerns.
Great first experience and will return. Dr was friendly and knowledgeable - helpful staff.
Highly recommended. Very clean office. Friendly efficient staff. Dr Lee asked me many questions and carefully examined me. I love that send my prescription to the pharmacy of choice to reduce my wait time. Great use of technology.
I usually don't leave feedback like this, but seeing Dr. Lee may have been the most enjoyable doctor visit ever. The office was beautiful, the Dr. and all nurses were attentive and helpful. I would absolutely recommend anyone to go see this doctor.
The office staff and doctor was very sweet and kind. Dr. Lee was very engaging and I will definitely go back should I need a doctor on one of my visits to NYC, again!
I liked the doctor and plan on making her my primary care physician. She asked lots of questions and was very thorough.
She is always kind, professional, and thorough!
I am so glad I found Dr. Lee's office. She and her colleagues are incredibly professional and make you feel very comfortable.
A wonderful office with polite staff and very timely I was in & out within 15 minutes. The doctor was very interested in listening to what I had to say and at no point did she make me feel rushed. I'm glad to have found myself a new doctor - I wouldn't hesitate to go back.
Very nice, quick and easy
i didn't like the waiting time and also that they messed up my first name..but she and her staff seemed very friendly
Everyone in the office was super nice and friendly. I was seen on time and the Doctor spoke with me before examining me. I would definitely go back and recommend Dr. Lee - I was very happy!
Did not have a good experience, felt like Sookwook Lee tried to ask me to do a number of tests that were unneccesary. When I asked her to give me the names, b/c I need to seek preapproval from the insurance company - she back tracked and said that there were many tests and "impossible" to give all the names and do just come back.
Very professional and careful!
I trusted Dr. Lee's knowledge and demeanor. Her staff were also very nice. My only concern is that my physical was very fast. Maybe that's just the medical establishment these days?
it was ok. I feel like she guessed her way thru my diagnosis, which in the end we have to wait for the blood work results anyway. so I left without feeling any level of confidence that i'd feel better...and I don't.
Easy to schedule, seen very quickly, great experience
Not only was I able to book an appointment on the same day, but I only waited a few moments before I was seen by Dr. Lee. She was very friendly and answered all of my questions.
Very knowledgeable. Wonderful nurses. Would definitely recommend!
Clean inviting office atmosphere with nice staff. I highly recommend this office.
Very nice people, clean place and great doctor!
Dr. Lee and her staff were so kind and knowledgable. They explained exactly what was happening and why. They made me comfortable throughout the entire exam.
It was great! She is very nice and knowledgeable!
She was very patient and helpful! She answered my wide variety of questions. I would recommend her. It was also very quick in and out - no wait time, which was great.
Great. Nice reception. No wait time. In and out in less than 30min.
Dr. Lee was great! Very gentle and kind and thorough. Turns out my gross cough is just from a cold -- whew! She gave me an in-office treatment and a couple of prescriptions to help me out -- just what I needed!
Dr. Lee was great. She is so nice and patient. She has a very calming presence when asking questions and doing the examination. She wanted to run blood work, and instead of referring me to a lab or calling in a nurse, she drew my blood right there and talked to me throughout. She looked up my CVS location when I didn't know the address, and my prescription was at my CVS and filled 5 mins after I left the office. It's so nice to see a doctor not just run in at the end to sign the paperwork - she really takes her time and cares. This was my second time at Dr. Lee and I will continue to be back. Plus her office is in a convenient location and I didn't wait more than 4 minutes.
Dr treated me on premises, left feeling better
A very efficient, yet friendly office. Got me in and out quickly, yet still being thorough.
Very nice and considerate.
Dr. Lee was incredibly kind and considerate. She listened to me closely and provided excellent feedback and advice. She was very friendly and approachable and yet incredibly professional and well-versed in her medical guidance. Very pleased to have found her listed on ZocDoc and looking forward to working with her moving forward.
Dr. Lee’s office is located in the bustling Korean community, a block away from Macy’s. Don’t let this put you off. I would recommend reaching her office by way of Fifth Ave, which is less hectic. I was greeted by soothing classical music and a friendly staff. After a five minute wait, my vitals were recorded by a cheerful doctor’s assistant. The examining room is softly lit, so that you won’t feel like a specimen sitting in a Petri dish. Dr. Lee greeted me with a warm and ready smile. I was immediately relieved. She has a gentle touch and is unhurried. I cannot recall the last time that I’ve felt so comfortable with a doctor – and I’ve had about four in the past few years. I think that I’ve finally found my primary care doctor. Dr. Lee rocks!
Great experience, excellent staff and care.
My visit with Dr Lee was very good. I will go back to see her.
I loved everyone there. So nice and easy. I haven't been to the doctor in a while and I was nervous but they made it so easy.
It was a pleasure. So easy to talk to her and her staff especially the nurse and receptionist.
Fantastic! I think I found a new primary care doc.
Very polite and quick. Would definitely recommend.
Saw me promptly, knew exactly what was going on and explained the situation well and gave recommendation post-appointment.
Professional, helpful, and efficient.
She is very nice and professional. Thanks Carina
Overall it was great. The doctor was very kind and helpful. It took the doctor about 30 mins to see me, but I was seen by others before for blood pressure and other checks, so overall wait time was not so long. I'd recommend the doctor!
Dr. Lee is very nice and attentive. No complaints here!
Good visit. One thing to note is that the office is in a Korean neighborhood. The doctor, staff, and most patients are Korean.
She was great- very attentive, nice nurses, gave her honset opinions and gave advice on what to eat (she advised it was better than takin supplements). As long as she is in my network, I would love to see her for any future appointments.
Very Informative, and explained me very clearly. I asked a few silly questions, and she answered them in a professional ways.
Great, fast, and convenient service right by my office! Highly recommended if you don't want to be caught in the typical frenzy of a doctor's office.
I'm a new patient and I didn't even have to wait. I was seen right away. Staff and Dr were very friendly.
Dr. Lee and her staff are thorough and make you feel very comfortable.
Everything went smoothly except that the purpose of my visit was for an annual physical and her office neglected to give me instructions to fast prior to coming to my appointment. This led to me not being able to get my labs done.
Dr. Lee and everyone in the office are extremely nice and helpful. I love them!
Really good doctor. Everyone was extremely nice and explained everything. Definitely will keep as my primary!
Very kind, professional, tended to all of my needs and answered any questions!
Great doctor. She takes extra care and attention to your health. Send your parents.
