How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Cha's staff was extremely friendly. I probably waited no more than 15 minutes after my appointment time and was still out in an hour. She explained everything that would take place during my consultation. Dr. Cha seems very knowledgable and is professional while still being approachable.

How was your experience with the doctor?I loved everything about it. I was there for a preconception appointment and am rather anxious, just in general but specifically relating to trying to have a baby. She was reassuring and extremely personable. She was firm with me too when necessary but in a way that didn't make me feel stupid or bad about myself. Overall, I would highly recommend her!

How was your experience with the doctor?I visited her for Annual Pap Smear. I was there for about 45mins in total. I waited for 25 mins in total, before I met her, and after an assistant checked my weight, etc., and after I put on the pink paper robe. Dr. Laura Cha was very nice. She was quick in speaking and performing the tests, and I liked the quick way. It was my first test, so I was nervous, but she made me feel it was ok, and everything was ok.

How was your experience with the doctor?Great experience with Laura Cha. I felt very comfortable discussing my concerns. Laura was very knowledgeable, and provided me with information that was specific to my needs rather than generic responses. The woman at the front desk was also friendly. Overall a welcoming environment, and I look forward to future appointments.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr Cha was recommended to me by a friend, and I can see why. She is not only a great physician, but she is a genuinely cool person. She makes you feel really at ease, knows how to crack a tasteful joke, and there is never any question of slut-shaming. Bonus points-- their phlebotomist is so good I couldn't even feel the needle.

How was your experience with the doctor?So here's the thing. I really like Dr. Cha, I think she's a great doctor. But her office is terrible. The people who work at the desk are rude and inefficient. I've had multiple problems with them. Most recently, I called about a medical issue I was having. I called the office, asked if I could see Dr. Cha or at the very least speak with her. The receptionist took down my information and said Dr. Cha would call me back. 3 hours later, I hadn't heard from her, so I called again. I told the receptionist I had called earlier, that I had to talk to Dr. Cha about a medical issue I was having. The receptionist was insanely rude and condescending. She was like, Dr. Cha is busy. She will call you when she can. I tried to pin down a time, and all I could get was "She'll call you when she's done with her patients." Sure enough, no phone call that day. Nada. The next day, I called the office for the third time. I explained to the receptionist what had happened the day before, and she said Dr. Cha would call me today. Not long after, Dr. Cha did call me. I told her what was going on, she said to wait a week and call her back if it's still a problem. Well this answer wasn't very comforting for me. So I made an appointment to see another gynecologist on zocdoc. She saw me the next day (whereas Dr. Cha didn't have availability for about a month and half). I got a vaginal ultrasound, and sure enough, I had a problem. Glad I didn't wait a week to find out. So basically, if you're just seeing Dr. Cha for your annual pap smear, she's great. But if you have a real medical issue that comes up out of nowhere... you better have a backup gyno.
