Like others below, I felt she barely listened to me. I have a lower back issue that leaves me feeling paralyzed, and she left without addressing it. When I asked the nurse if Dr. So was returning to address my back, she went and got her so she could come tell me to "do yoga". I exercise regularly. Something is wrong back there. Will not be returning.

Had good experiences in the past, but just had a physical with her, and it was way too rushed, and I had questions that I wasn't able to ask. Not sure why so rushed when there wasn't hardly anyone in the waiting room.

I'm sure she's a knowledgeable doctor, but she's a little rough around the edges and not very sensitive to what the patient is going through. Doesn't listen much and seems to just want you out of her office asap. Unfortunate.

Dr. So is my doctor as well as my kids. She always get back to me sometimes within the hour when I leave her a message with a question. We all really like her and feel confident in her knowledge and appreciate the care she gives us

I found Dr. So caustic, condescending, & very judgmental. Her bedside manner is highly insensitive & curt. While her medical knowledge seemed fine, she did not fully listen to me or what I had to say. She stopped me short when I tried to respond to her questions. For anyone with a congenital medical condition, like I have, she is not for you. Her non-supportive & disdainful attitude towards me was embarrassing, shaming, & painful. I left her office very feeling I had wasted my time seeing her.
