Patient Comments (5)
As a doctor I was very satisfied with her treatment. She was patient and kind when asked questions. She always made me feel comfortable. Her staff, however, is awful. They are rude. The wait at the office was always horrible. I had to constantly call to make sure FMLA papers were done in a timely manner. They weren't which was unacceptable to me. The office staff takes their sweet time doing anything for the patient. Dr. Song was the opposite of the staff.

shows sincere interest in helping people .Happy New Year dr Song. You're the greatest
in Staten Island, NY |
In 2011 I was told by Dr. Song that I have Temporal Lobe Epilepsy after a EEG in her office and Brain MRI. I had a horrible tickle in my arm and legs. In 2014 after a second opinion at NYU Hospital - Epilepsy Unit after a 4 day video EEG, I was told by my new Neurologist that its Panic Disorder, and that he knows Dr. Song and that she tells everyone that they have Epilepsy. I had Panic Disorder since a teenager.

She's extraordinarily smart and very helpful when she's got your attention. When she has your attention is the operative word. Her office is constantly overbooked and she doesn't have the staff to handle her practice's overbooking.
in New York, NY |
Dr. Song was curt and unaffected when discussing patient and condition. I don't think she understands the responsibilities of neurology and dealing with patients with brain and personality disorders. She medicates without ANY interest in understanding her patient's response or side effects. This is dangerous for neurological drugs. She just increases medication without asking her patients how they are dealing. This is a SERIOUS LIABILITY!
