Overall, one of the worst experiences Ive had! Went to her for hemorrhoid issue. To make a long gory story short, 4 horrible banding procedures later, and having her CONSTANTLY telling to take fiber, my issue became 100x worse. Never once did she consider looking into the issue of what was causing my stomach problems, which led to the hemorrhoids. She just INSISTED that I download my body with FIBER. 9 horrible months under her awful care, and incessant need to do the expensive banding procedure, I went to a GI doctor, who with just one test, found out that I had COLITIS! Also, informing that banding would NEVER help the issue! Months of Fiber absolutely worsened by stomach issues, and the banding just caused me massive pain and $$$.. since insurance DID NOT cover all of it! All along I tried to tell her that I there was something more to my issues, but she just stayed her course and followed her own medical agenda. Needless to say, I am consulting a malpractice attorney!

I went to Dr. Seo for a hemroid n was told I have a fissure. She examined me very rough and called one of the assistants from the front desk to aid her in putting rubber band on hemroid. I was in extreme pain when I left her office. She was in a hurry to do surgery and kept saying "your rectum is just too tight" well isn't tht the way the rectum should be. Long story short I was misinformed and went through with surgery to be left in more pain. Not a good experience. I went to another colon Rectal surgeon after the damage was done and was told tht my rectum is normal and not to under go any more surgeries. Still in pain till this day from surgery she performed

Dr. Seo missed a diagnosis that could have avoided my undergoing colon surgery. I went to her twice for severe abdominal pain. She prescribed over the counter meds. Had she looked at my medical and colonoscopy history, she would have known that I have diverticulosis. She never checked. In fact she told me it’s been 3 years since my last colonoscopy when SHE performed the last one just 4 months prior. Her incompetence caused me weeks of suffering severe pain and eventually a correct diagnosis and surgery by another doctor. She missed it!!

I was horrified with my appointment. I went to Dr. Seo for a consult regarding hemorrhoids. It started well--we discussed the condition, and she told me she would put tiny rubber bands on them to shrink them. Then, in the exam room, she was very brusk. She called in two employees who had been at the front desk answering phones to assist her.That was my first red flag. Then she told me to kneel on the exam table, "pull down my underwear, pull up my dress, and lean over." All this in front of two people who did not seem to be medical professionals. I felt very violated. Afterward, Dr. Seo told me about how to treat the hemorrhoids, which I believe was the right information. But it was very unsettling (I have given birth twice and have had regular Pap smears; I am usually not squeamish when exams are conducted properly). I called Dr Seo to ask about the assistants. She said they aren't docs or RNs but have certification (but she doesn't know what) and she became indignant. Ughhhhhhh

I'm always busy like everyone else I know and the truth is I never stop to take the time . But I just came from DR. Christina Seo's office for a follow up. I've known doctors that I thought where skilled physicians . I've also known some doctors that I felt where very caring . And I have been to some that are exceptionally thorough. I also know that some doctors are not just doctors they are also surgeons. And some are truly skilled surgeons . MD. Christina Seo , is all of the above and more.

Doctor was courteous and friendly. My only complaint is that the examination was conducted in swift & rough manner which cause much pain. I also didn't feel that she made a thorough enough of examination to make proper diagnosis. Worst part of it is that since my visit, the condition worsened and am now in more pain than ever.

Dr. Seo is a life saver. I was referred to her by a different gastroenterologist after Columbia surgeon recommended an invasive surgery with recovery time of 3 weeks. The surgery was absolutely not necessary (just a way to build my insurance) and Christina resolved my hemorrhoid issues right there on the spot. I had to wait for 40 minutes, yet to her credit she spent that entire time with 1 patient and offered me the same courtesy. Grateful to meet someone who is not charging by minute.

I was not at all happy with my visit. She was very quick to diagnose without listening to any of my symptoms or complaints. Her assessment was quick and not thorough at all. She gave me a cream which I called to tell her was burning and causing me more pain but she told me to continue. I ended going to the ER from worse pain than when I saw her. I followed up with another Dr who actually listened and assessed. He found the problem and was able to treat me properly. Paying over $200 to see her?
