Verified Patient Reviews
I was greeted by a very friendly and welcoming front desk staff. Dr. Park has a very calm demeanor, but nonetheless she is very nice, understanding and gentle. I would highly recommend going to this office and seeing Dr.Park.
Dr. Park gives you her full attention for as long as is needed. She is knowledgeable, thoughtful, and listens to your needs. She's a good doctor, and through.
This was as pleasant a doctor's visit I've ever had. No wait for a 9 am appointment, polite and helpful staff, knowledgable and friendly doctor who made me feel at ease immediately. Very happy with Dr. Park.
She is a great doctor.....ALWAYS. Caring and knowledgeable. Happy our family found her.
Dr. Park and her staff are warm and welcoming. They keep their apppointments right on schedule. When I am examined by Dr. Park I never feel rushed or shortchanged. She is a good listener. I feel I am in very goo hands.
Excellent. Thoughtful, thorough, and willing to spend more than an hour with me.
As a nurse who has been around her fair share of doctors, I just have to say I love Dr. Park! Was seen immediately, her medical assistant was excellent at obtaining the basics (allergies, vital signs, labs) and Dr. Park was the perfect balance of professional and personable. She was thorough, quick and very nonjudgmental. I would (and will) recommend her to anyone needing a primary care doctor.
Great experience and will absolutely continue to go to Dr. Park for my annual physical!
I can't say enough good things about my visit to Dr Parks office. She gave me 40 minutes of her time just chatting. You felt welcome and like they cared about your time as much as they cared about you. Lovely experience!
Dr. Park was excellent. She really took the time to talk to me and go over my history. Her assistant Cookie was great at drawing blood and gave me some apple juice afterwards because I always get woozy. Very pleased with Dr. Park and Cookie.
would see her again' very personable she did not rush me took time to explain things to me
She is great! She takes her time with you, explains everything in detail. She addresses everything right then and there. I had an issue, she requested tests and called me in the afternoon to discuss just to calm my anxiety. I love that I can reach out to her via email and she responds within the same day. So much different than my other doctors. I just wish I found her sooner. She is great.
Could not be happier. I was seen right away, and everyone was lovely.
Amazing Doctor and Person! I couldn't be happier to have found such a caring and knowledgeable doctor as Dr.Park. Very personable and attentive. I went in with a stomach pain that had been bothering me for a long time and she was able to figure out what I had right away (she ordered lab work done to confirm of course). Once she was certain about my condition she personally called me and told me what it was and how to treat it. I am very content and grateful Dr.Parks is my primary care physician. I highly HIGHLY recommend her. *Plus her assisting nurse is so nice, sweet and helpful (brownie points!)
Very knowledgable, approachable, and understanding!
The clinic itself is in the middle of a move. However, the service was thorough and prompt. Doctor took care to explain recommendations carefully.
She was very thorough & seemed very interested in helping me with my concerns. Very nice office as well!
Before seeing her I had seen a specialist (with whom I have a trust issue - as I felt what he was proposing was too aggressive). She explained to me what his prescription contained and explained one by one, what the medicines was for. I was very happy to get her "endorsement" of his approach. She takes time to listen to you and explain things (something my specialist was not so good at).
Dr. Susan Park is amazing! She is very professional, courteous caring, informative, and easy to talk to. These are only a few of the many amazing qualities that define Dr. Park.
I highly recommend Dr. Park. She's very thorough and attentive. Friendly personality. Cookie did great taking blood. It was painless. They make your visit very relaxing and stress free. Brand new and very clean office
My visit was great. She is the most genuine and patient doctor I have ever been to.
Dr. Park looks at my personal health as a whole. She takes plenty of time to go over the different aspects of my health with me.
She is the best doctor ever! Highly recommended.
Dr. Park was thoughtful, and professional in taking my medical history. Her goal directed recommendations for my personal health as a 40+ individual are sound and have provided me with a sense of partnership in my future health. I am so glad I found her office.
She is THE BEST primary care physician, hands down
Great bedside manner! She really took the time to talk to me and understand my needs. I'll definitely be going back!
I can't say enough good things about Dr. Park. (and her assistant, Cookie!) All the reviews are true. Such a warm, friendly environment, was seen right away and had the chance to actually sit and chat with the doctor for about an hour. No rush, no hurry-- and more than anything, she takes the time to listen. So incredibly refreshing for NYC!
I had a very pleasant and informative session with Dr. Park. She and her staff are very friendly and accommodating, and I felt well taken care of. Dr. Park answered all of my questions thoroughly and figured out what the best course of action was. I highly recommend her!
They just moved to their location so office was under construction but everything was still in working order so nothing felt chaotic. Dr. Park and her assistant were very helpful and patient. Really love that they email results.
Dr. Park is the best! It took me over 10 years since moving to NYC to finally find a great doctor. She is punctual, very thorough, and has a wonderful bedside manner. I highly recommend her as a primary care doctor.
Dr. Park is awesome. On my first visit, she sat with me for 45 minutes discussing my medical history and answering questions I had that hadn't been answered for years. She's really funny and sweet, and visits with her are never stressful. If I'm ever sick and need to see a doctor right away, she makes sure to fit me in that day, and I can email her with questions and she'll get back to me quickly. Love her!
Great experience. Very thorough, patient, detail oriented. Feel very comfortable to be under her care.
Great Dr. She goes out of her way to help her patients.
Dr. Park was very personable. She had amazing bedside manner. I felt comfortable and she listened to all of my concerns and symptoms. I'm so glad to have found a doctor close to my apartment like her!
Wonderful doctor. Sat with my husband and I for an hour while discussing how to fix my the problem I was having. Also, examined me and her assistant was top notch. I wish she was still covered by my insurance. I fear I will never find a doctor as great as she was.
Friendly, thorough, and attentive. She and her assistant both took their time with me and made me feel very comfortable.
Caring, engaging, and someone who is interested in your total health. Looks to healing with your body's ability's and the pharmaceuticals. Will help you prioritize your needs.
Very thorough and polite..her assistant was awesome as well..I didn't feel rushed and I felt as if I was being attended too very well.
She is the best Doctor I have ever had. I love her!
Dr. Susan Park was amazing. It was the most personal attention I could have asked for.
Dr. Park was extremely courteous and professional. She took the time to inquire about my family history and answer any questions I had.
I love Dr. Park! She's respectful, knowledgeable, and so gracious. Really happy to have found her!
Easy to talk to, professional and takes her time with you even though I'm sure she's busy. A great PCP - highly recommended!
She is good as usual.
Great! She was extremely thorough, sitting me down and making sure that she covered all of my medical history. The nurse was also very nice and took my blood in a very efficient and careful manner. Definitely going back to her again.
She's really smart and quite nice - the ideal doctor.
So friendly, cheerful, and efficient - so rare to find a doctor like her!
Very personable and really took the time to get to know me and my health history upon first visit. Dr. Park seemed very knowledgeable and experienced as well.
Dr. Park is one-of-a-kind. She is extremely knowledgeable, very thorough in her examinations (including gathering pertinent background information on the medical history of the patient and the patient's family), never rushes through her appointments, allows the patient to ask questions and is easily the nicest most affable doctor I have ever visited. Seriously. Phenomenal.
Awesome. I came 15 minutes early (in case there was paper work) and the nurse came right up to me and apologized for making me wait maybe 60 seconds. The nurse did all the paperwork for me and got me settled. Dr. Park was very thorough- she spent maybe 35 minutes talking to be about my health history. It really seemed like she was listening, unlike other doctors I've seen. Can't recommend her highly enought!
I had an excellent experience with Dr. Park. She was very helpful and knowledgeable, was open to questions, which she answered fully, and explained what she was doing and why during the physical examination. She has a friendly disposition, and I would definitely recommend her.
Susan was extremely thorough, answered my long list of questions, and gave very practical advice. Her nurse Cookie was also excellent, caring and careful, I highly recommend Susan and her team.
Dr Park was very generous with her time, very pleasant and friendly. I felt it was easy to discuss my issues and that we worked together to decide the best treatment.
First visit and I am impressed. Very cordial; she really listened. Took a lot of time with me. Staff was helpful and friendly. I am encouraged!
My appointment was at 945am and just as I walked into the clinic, her super friendly assistant was waiting for me and took me immediately to a room. I did not even have to check in with the reception. I chose her because of the all the great reviews she has (and the location). Well, all the reviews were spot on - she really listened to me (I went for a general check up for the first time) and asked many questions. Simply a pleasant experience :o)
The doctor's bedside manner was outstanding and unsurpassed. She was thorough, informative, and showed great follow up. She created a calm environment and I felt at ease during the exam, and comfortable asking questions (despite having anxiety about going to doctor appointments of any kind). The medical assistant, Cookie, is highly professional and her warmth is palpable. I appreciated her kindness as I was a bit drained and cranky during my appointment, and I somehow walked out of the office with a smile and feeling so positive. I'm relieved to have found a doctor and doctor's office like hers.
Can't say enough about her! She is wonderful!
I was very nervous seeing a new doctor after having had the same GP for many years. Dr. Park and her nurse were terrific. Dr. Park spent a very long time talking to me and finding out about my medical history and any medical concerns. She was very reassuring and had a great bedside manner! She was also incredibly responsive after my visit and let me know my lab results right away. I'm thrilled to have found her!
What a great experience! I waited less than 5 minutes to be called in, her assistant was very friendly and professional, and so was Dr. Park. She spent an appropriate amount of time hearing my concerns, and gave me sound advice. I feel very good about Dr. Park being my primary care physician.
Dr. Park is an amazing doctor that truly cares about her patients. She and her nurse spent 1.5 hours with me for my annual physical and took the time to understand what was going on in my life both physically and emotionally. She's a great doctor and I highly recommend her!
It was really great to spend an appt with a PCP who took the time to ask questions, write down the answers, and engage! There was absolutely no sense of rush, which is such a wonderful and rare thing to find in New York City!
Dr. Susan is very thorough, she takes her time to listen to all of your questions and provides you with answers. Dr. Park and her assistant, Cookie, are both very helpful and quick to respond to any questions you may have via email. I'm sad my insurance changed and I have to look for a new doctor now.
Excellent service and very fast waiting time. Doctor Park we friendly,pleasant , and knowledgeable. Definitely coming back!
Exactly what i would have wanted! Looking forward to a long and caring relationship..
Dr. Park listens and answers questions and is most reassuring. My huband and father were both internists and I am very exacting. Dr. Park suspassed my expectations and wishes. I have already referred a friend to her.
I like her she was great took her time to explain things as needed. I left paperwork home she called and got them for me and took her time to explain the results to me which is what I like the other doc who ordered the test never called me to even say she received them and its been months
Second time.. and i still love her. She is informative and gets to the point!
I just had my first appointment with Dr. Park and she was incredible. She listens very well, is empathetic, and clearly a very smart and well-versed doctor. I would certainly recommend her to anyone searching for a primary care physician in Manhattan.
she was great!
She is very relaxed and I felt at ease right away.
Excellent. First time visiting Dr Park and really liked her. Visited her for a diabetes consultation. Appointment was on time, she took her time with me, very thorough and very pleasant.
She is perfection.
Very pleasant, polite, friendly, and easy to talk to.
She is a fantastic physician.
This is the third time I've seen Dr. Park and I'm always amazed by the amount of information she collects about my history and symptoms. She is very intelligent and has a great bedside manner. I highly recommend her!
She was fantastic and SO informative. I'm not used to that much attention and compassion when I visit the Dr. Refreshing!
While Dr. Park clearly has a high volume of patients (and deservedly so), my appointment with her did not feel the least bit rushed. She was extremely thorough in asking questions about my condition, made me feel entirely at ease and - most importantly - checked up on me several days later via email to see how I was doing on the medication she prescribed. She is also very accessible and answered my follow-up questions (also posed via email) promptly and consistently. Dr. Park's commitment to her patients' well-being is extraordinary and I would recommend her without hesitation.
Dr. Park is fantastic - very caring, takes her time to ask questions and explain everything. The facilities are clean and easy to access from the subway. About an average wait time to see her, but she was very apologetic for the wait and it's clear that she's not rushing through her patients (which I, personally, prefer).
I have been seeing Dr. Park for a while and found her to be thoughtful, diligent in following-up and very responsive. Great primary care physician.
Dr. Park is excellent! She is knowledgeable, a great listener, and took her time in getting a thorough history. Her assistant is also great.
She's great, very attentive and really puts you at ease. Her medical assistant is quick, efficient and on top of everything. I was immediately taken in and everything went smoothly. She also electronically sent my prescription to my CVS which is great. I just found my new doctor and will def be back!
She is the best primary care doctor I have ever had.
Friendly, straightforward & professional
Perfection!! Dr Park is a great Doctor, I have already recommended her to work colleges and friends. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Park is an example of how doctors should be ... enough said!
She is warm, caring and very easy to talk to. She answered all my questions and she took time to explain. She didn't hesitate at all when I went back to her office after my appointment with an additional question and a request. Her medical assistant was also very nice and kind.
This was my first visit to a primary physician since I moved to New York. Dr. Park was very welcoming and professional, and took the time to understand me and my background before diagnosing me. I didn't feel rushed and she answered all my questions so I really understood how to get better. I will definitely go back to see Dr. Parks next time.
Dr. Park is super sweet, knowledgable, and attending. She truly cares about you and is effective and thorough. I have just moved here in June and have been searching, and decided she would be my primary right away! The nurse is also very sweet and comforting. My only, very minor dislike would be the desk attendants--not very welcoming or personable--somewhat rude! But definitely worth it for Dr. Park!
Dr Park is the best, and everyone I've recommended her to loves her as well. She always takes a ton of time to listen, you'll never feel rushed at this doctor's visit! She's also extremely attentive after hours -- corresponding via email frequently. I also love that she sends follow up emails after blood work explaining the results. Don't hesitate... see Dr Park if you are looking for a new GP!!!
Thorough, personable, great instinct.
She took the time to ask me questions about how I was feeling and then explained the diagnosis and, most importantly, why she had concluded on that diagnosis (as opposed to any other options for my symptoms). She seemed genuinely concerned and explained everything very well.
My visit was quick and efficient, and yet she still made sure that all of my questions were answered and that everything was well-explained.
Dr. Park took a very thorough history and spent a lot of time with me. I felt like I got a very thorough check up.
Dr. Park is extremely patient and the visit did not feel rushed at all. She takes the time to answer all questions in depth. She is friendly and has an excellent bedside manner.
My visit was just as expected, reassuring and the feeling of being taken good care of.
I got more than I bargained for. Went in with sinus problems and she wound up helping me with my skin problems, too. Assistant was lovely. Will absolutely go again.
Dr. Park was literally the best PCP I've ever been to. She took the time to really understand my family and health history so she could get to the root cause of my illness. She has terrific bedside manner and is a pleasure to speak with. I highly recommend her and will definitely become a regular patient of hers.
Dr. Park is always on time, efficient, and easy to talk to.
The best doctor I've ever had. Hands down. Wish I still lived in NYC or never changed jobs to still go to her!
Dr. Park was very kind and warm, and thorough in her questioning me about my issue. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to someone else.
Dr. Park was great. She listened well, and the physical therapy suggestions for my knee she e-mailed to me, as well as the results from my blood work, which I found to be very convenient and fast. The nurse was also very friendly. The appointment was thorough but not too long, which I appreciated.
I seriously am so impressed by Dr. Park. The most thorough doctor ever. She took her time, was generous in explaining. And helped me with my medical issues. She come HIGHLY recomended..
Dr. Park was great! Very thorough and easily one of the nicest doctor's I've seen in New York
Courteous, professional and right on time.
Excellent bedside manner.
Very kind and easy to speak to. I did not feel self-conscious or uncomfortable around her, even when talking about unusual subjects!
I really loved her. Most amazing bedside manner - she explained everything she was doing and made feel like I could talk to her about anything. She was very patient and had a detailed discussion with me about prescriptions and the options I had. Recommend to everyone! I am moving abroad but will find my way back here for my annual exams!
I arrived 10 min early for my appointment and was called within 5 min. Her assistant was personably and sweet. Dr Park was excellent, took her time to speak to me and answered all my questions (30 to 40 min worth). My previous GP would only give patients 15mins tops and that was with the full exam. I had a lot of questions as a result and a recurring problem I have had for 5 years was addressed. She is extremely knowledgeable. I left her office pleased. Dr Park responded to me via email with my test results by late evening same day and then reached out via my cell same day to ensure I completely understood what was discussed earlier in the day. She will be my new GP.
I LOVED Doctor. Park. I needed some in depth work and investigation to some reoccurring health problems I was having. She took soo much time, and throughly investigated the causes. She was genuinely interested in my background and felt like she cared. Which I find to be rare with doctors in NYC. I was very impressed and happy I came acros Dr. Park. I will definately be a permanent patient of hers.
Was very efficient but still kind and thorough. I would recommend her to anyone.
Dr. Park pulled me from the waiting room literally 20 seconds after I sat down. She was excellent. She knows her stuff. I've had some issues over the years that were not addressed properly I believe and she had some insight that I did not think of before.
Dr. Park was extremely thorough and did not rush through a single part of the visit. She took the time to listen to the whole story and was very helpful and straightforward with all of the options available. She was able to recommend a specialist for me and ordered blood tests to be done immediately that day. I was in the waiting room a total of 30 seconds before she took me in. Excellent first impression!
Dr. Park and her nurse were very friendly and took all the time needed to treat me (and attend to my 16 month old who accompanied me!) I was also seen the same day, which was great as I was quite sick and didn't want to wait.
Pleasant, thoughtful manner. Very sensible, knowledgeable, to the point.
She is very thorough and takes her time. It is not the rushed 5 minutes experience with most primary care docs. She is also very responsive by email - all in all, a great doc to have.
Dr. Park takes the time to listen and explain. Excellent first impression.
I had no idea what to expect going in, but I am really happy with the experience. Dr. Park was really easy to talk to I felt like I finally got someone who listened. She is super smart and im just glad I found a great GP in NYC!
Dr. Parks was great. I enjoyed my visit.

I was seen within 5 minutes of arriving, Dr. Park was extremely knowledgeable and understanding. She was efficient in diagnosing and scheduling blood work, overall a great experience. I would highly recommend her to family and friends.
Extremely thorough and very perceptive. Listened to everything I had to say and really examined everything so there was nothing missed. Explained everything, which was super helpful and impressive. She also explained everything about my results of the blood work and went through everything so I understand what all these test were. Never had a doctor this thorough and smart. She's a keeper!
She was extremely professional and answered all my questions. She is also very personable and made me completely at ease.
She is very professional with a great focus on her patient. She spends quality time you, listens and offers advice if needed. I would definitely recommend Dr. Park.
Dr. Park was great! Very attentive, very easy to talk to. She addressed all of my concerns, and took everything I said into account.
She really listened to everything and we talked everything through. She's very nice, and makes sure she hits every point she needs to ask!
She is concerned for her patients, and takes time to answer questions. I highly recommend her!
Dr. Park was knowledgeable, thorough and kind. I visited her after taking a sick day, urgently looking for someone to see within walking distance. Thanks to ZocDoc, I now have a great MD right in my neighborhood.
She is so wonderful! She is just so down to earth and friendly, and really knows her stuff. I have gone to her several times and she always makes me feel so comfortable! She's an excellent doctor!
Dr Park is so sweet and patient. Definitely felt very comfortable with her.
Dr. Park was definitely the one of the best doctors I have had - it was refreshing to see someone so willing to listen, with great bedside manor and really thorough. Dr. Park's office is not near my home or office, but because of he great reviews I decided to book her for my appointment - very glad that I did!
Was very personable and found things about my health that others hasnt found but explained alot.
Dr. Park is super friendly! Loved her :)

I loved Dr Park, she spent an hour getting to know me and provided a thorough exam. I will definitely return!!
She is compassionate, smart, candid and asks questions that make sense. She also listens well.
Always a pleasure to see her, she is very calm, warm and pleasant to be around. Dr park makes me feel heard and actually listens to what I tell her
Very friendly, however had a noisy waiting room that was shared with another doctor. Otherwise great experience.
She was very thorough and the appointment was not rushed at all. She answered all of my questions and was very friendly. Great experience overall!
Dr. Park was highly professional. She spent time listening to my problems and concerns. Engaged me in the plan of care. She had a very focused approach. She was friendly and non-judgmental.
Dr. Park was very professional, knowledgeable, and thorough. I felt very comfortable during my initial meeting and the followup as well. She asked relevant questions about my family history, volunteering great information and answered all the questions I had.
Dr. Park was extraordinary. I've never had a doctor that was so thorough and investigative. I felt that she truly wanted the best for me, and was willing to put in the time & effort to finding effective treatments and solutions. She also spent more than an hour with me - she said she didn't have any other patients after me so she was available to answer any questions or address any other concerns. How awesome is that?
I thought Dr. Park was excellent and very thorough. She took time, listened, and was respectful. I think I may not mind going to the doctor as much as I used to!
Very nice doctor with excellent bedside manner. She was thorough with both examination and explanation and went out her way to make me feel at ease. Highly recommended.
First visit with Dr. Park and after leaving her office I was more than pleased. i can finally call someone "my doctor" Dr. Park was very respectful and never judged me about my lifestyle. Brand new clean office in a great location. I am recommending her to all my clients, friends, and family.
From day 1 Dr. Park proved herself to be capable, thorough and with an excellent bedside manner. And I've a LOT of medical issues to keep her on her toes. She's a wonderful old fashioned type of doctor in many ways, but adds wonderful modern touches, like ZocDoc and email conversations to keep you on your toes!
Dr. Park was extremely professional and very friendly.
All of the ratings about Dr. Park are dead on. She was friendly and relatable. She wasn't judgmental and she was very quick. She explained what needed to be explained and nothing more. Very happy I went to her.
Dr. Park is everything that I could ask for from a doctor. She is very attentive and knowledgable. She takes the time to listen to patient's needs and concerns, and does not rush you out of her office. I don't think she has an assistant at this time (or at least not when I was visiting), but she is very efficient, took care of everything herself (exams, forms, and questions regarding payments). Highly recommended.
Susan was friendly, informative, and really approachable.
As usual, couldn't ask for a better doctor.
Great doctor no complaints other than finding parking but then again it is the upper east side
It was fine.She was professional, helpful and friendly.
Dr. Park was very professional and I immediately felt comfortable with her. I highly recommend her.

My First time and I feel comfortable
My visit with Dr. Park was excellent. Dr. Park is both very professional and personal. She has a wonderful manner and her diagnosis was right on.
Dr. Park, is very professional and thourough. She also has the faculty to make one feel comfortable and she really listens, she has empathy for her patients. She's reassuring and trustful. In my opinion she has all the qualities one expects from a doctor. After this first visit, I personally will recommend her to other members of my family and friends.
My visit with Dr. Park was very convenient and I really appreciated that she offer Saturday appointments. I found the office to be a little disorderly for a doctor's office, however, and the exam room was not the most clean I've experienced, which was a bit disconcerting.
I had been feeling sick for almost 2 weeks, and I usually go use my college's student services doctors, so it was my first foray into private physicians. Dr. Park saw me same day and was incredibly friendly. Not to mention she accepts my insurance! I definitely recommend her.
Dr Park was wonderful! Would highly recommend!!
She was very friendly and thorough and took time to respond to my concerns.
