How was your experience with the doctor?I'm actually late for writing this review. I arrived early for an appointment before the office opened and had to wait outside. I waited in front of the building and noticed Dr. Sunwoo walking on the block. Dr. Sunwoo noticed me and immediately crossed the street. As a black man this happens often (first time for me). Once she realized I was waiting for an appointment, she embarrassing crossed back over striking conversation and made up an excuse. She was even more embarrassed when she opened the exam door and saw me waiting. I was nothing but courteous and respectful to her during the appointment. It took me a long time to write this review and I'm doing so that another black man would not have to feel this way. I was dressed professionally as well so I can only imagine how things would have gone if I wasn't. I will never return. Do better Dr. Sunwoo.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Sunwoo is exceptionally skilled. She has an amazing way to make her customers feel at ease. As an MSN, RN who relocated to New York, It took me some time to find a physician who first I felt comfortable in managing my care. Dr. Sunwoo lived up to her amazing reputation. Secondly, the entire staff from patient registration to discharge go above and beyond to ensure you are treated with the utmost respect and care.

How was your experience with the doctor?I found Dr. Sunwoo very friendly and professional. I love the staff that works there, who are very accommodating. They assisted me when I needed assistance and did not make me feel unwelcomed. I would definitely recommend the doctors there.. however, the location is not the most park friendly.. and traffic can be a nightmare there.. since it's a VERY touristy area.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Sunwoo and her staff are lovely and made me feel comfortable immediately. I was a new patient and went for an annual physical. I was conveniently able to check in ahead of time and provide a medical history via email. I did have to wait a little to see her as she was still with another patient but no more than 15 mins which I don't mind because I appreciate a doctor that doesn't rush through appointments. She did a thorough checkup and review of my health and family history and made suggestions for improvements. I felt that she genuinely cared about my health. I will definitely see her again.
