I was recently diagnosed with cancer and didn't appreciate having to wait a week to see the Dr and waited 1 hour on the day of my appointment to be called in. I also have to wait up to a week to have a CT scan approved by insurance before I can even schedule the scan. I have PPO and dual coverage with an HMO plan. I shouldn't have to wait a week to verify benefits. I have cancer not a minor issue. PIH seems to be getting way to busy. I was told that I would have to wait over 1 month to do a televisit with my regular gynecologist. Fortunately she called me, however, not what I want to hear when I've been told that I have cancer. I'm seriously looking at other providers. I have excellent insurance and I don't want to be treated as if I'm on a government assistance plan.

There were two patients by the same name that was placed in the wrong room and then moved and scolded by the doctor that I was late. He told me I had cancer and then left without letting me talk or explaining anything and told me that his aid would schedule surgery for me.

I think Dr. Im is a wonderful young man and a dedicated doctor. I've been seeing him for almost 3 years and I trust him with my life and you're lucky to have someone with him ... someone like him working with PIH. Thank you. Goodbye now.

Hi. The provider is great. I just felt I was a little rushed and I actually forgot to ask him a question. But overall the doctor is great and his office is.
March 04, 2021
Dr. Im is a stellar physician and I'm looking forward to him doing my surgery. PIH is lucky to have him on staff.

I think Dr. Im is a really qualified, capable, amazing medical doctor. I just I don't know how he does it in dealing with women with cancer like he does and I'm really grateful for him and to have him. I just I wouldn't want to change to another doctor. I just am sick of oncology and wish I didn't have to go see oncology doctors, which of course he can't stop, but I think he's just amazing, smart, and does good surgery. So that's as much as I care about.

Dr. Samuel Im and his nurse assistant, who also translates, are excellent. They take time with me, they treat me with great care and respect, and they have helped me a lot. I thank you so much for your care and attention.

The parking lot and entrance to it was unpleasant, long line to get a parking ticket. It was disappointing that parking was being charged to patients that had appointments if it took more than 30 minutes. Everything else was good.
February 04, 2021
The entire staff were courteous, respectful, caring, efficient, and expert in the total progression of admittance and treatment; the discharge process will be expectedly as fine as the foregoing.

Visit is always very quick. Doctor doesn't say much, just comes in and takes pap smear, and does rectal exam. Less than 10 minutes, it's over.

I love my doctor, she is so amazing

Dr Im was rushing through my appointment (that he was 45 minutes late to). He did not discuss the risks of my surgery or go over with me why my ovary couldn't be saved. He felt my large cyst and stated that surgery was the only option, but in his report he said that I insisted on the surgery. In his report he stated that he spent 45 minutes with me, but only spent 10 minutes.

He is very knowledgeable, respectful, and personable. He will spend enough time with his patients. He listens to his patients about any questions they may have. Takes the time to explain in a simple and clear manner the answer and if there is a course of treatment to resolve the issue. I have been going to Dr Samuel Im for many years. I do recommend him to anyone.
