Irene Oh is the most caring physician I have ever met. I deeply resent anyone calling her anything, but that. I have seen her many times over the last decade and found her to be charming, intelligent, and very competent. I have seen many physicians in my time and trust her implicitly. I have had nightmares with the many medical staffs of many physicians. Now a days, that seems to be the standard, unfortunately. Regardless of her staffing, I know I couldn't be in better hands than Doctor Oh. She has treated me in the past for spinal problems and now I'm to see her for an age related problem. I'm fortunate to be under her care!

While Dr. Oh and her staff seem pleasant enough, I've been waiting almost 2 weeks for authorization for an MRI. Her staff hasn't submitted it and 3 phone calls and a visit to the office in person have yielded no results. They don't return phone calls and they ignore things like "urgent" and "stat." It takes months to get an appointment even when it's a follow-up appointment. I'm not impressed so far and if things don't improve by my next visit, I will be changing doctors. Very disappointing.

My mother and a friend both go to Dr. Oh. My friend had an appointment and it was cancelled- rebooked and as of Friday, cancelled again. Came home and told my mom "I bet they will call you and cancel yours...and sure enough they just did...They have scheduled her for early October. This is a very bad sign...and time to find a more competent Dr. and staff

Dr Oh appears to be a competent Neurologist but her front office reception and phone system is the worst I have experienced. It is nearly impossible to reach a live person to make an appoint. The phone system has an unending series of messages which always results in a request to leave a message. No one ever follows up on the messages left, thus making it extremely difficult to make an appointment.

Doctor Oh prescribed the wrong medicine to my wife for over 3 years. 4 doctors told Oh that she was wrongly treating my wife with Carbidopa / Levodopa (2500Mgm a day) for Parkinson's. Meds should have been for PSP. Two independent Neurologists and 2 GPs. The extensive reports sent to Doctor Oh were ignored. Changed doctors & everything improved immediately. In my opinion Doctor OH cost my wife 4 years of life. The last 4 years filled with hallucinations and misery. DR. Irene Oh is a hack

Experience with Dr. Oh is the worst. Dr. Oh and her team clearly don't care about their patients, and we are looking hard for a new neurologist.
