My wife and I just visited Dr. Noh for the first time Front staff and blood draw top notch. Loved Dr. Noh very compassionate and listened to our issues (we just retired) seems to want to help and get all issues taken car of. Highly recommend Dr. Noh
Dr. Noh has been my doctor since 2010. He saved my life. He found a medical issue that other doctors had missed. Without Dr. Noh, I would no longer be here. There is no way I can thank him enough.
Actually it's not the staff it's the doctor's wife. She is the office manager. She's trying to squeeze 20 people in every hour. Refuses to provide info over the phone just so you are forced to pay for office visit. Only reason I kept coming back was the PA, Kimberly. Good bless her soul. Don't know how she puts up with it every day!
Does not listen to you. Treats you like your stupid. She doesn't apologize for her mistakes. Doctors are great there.,.I had heard of Iris problems but gave it a chance anyway. Now I'm done.
Do NOT go here! Strongly do NOT recommend. A few weeks after paying for “New Patient” office visit, I called to make my annual Well Woman Exam appointment. After checking in for my WWE appointment the front desk/recp tried to collect money from me. I again explained I had made a Well Woman appointment and Cigna covered at 100%. I was later called back to a room and Kimberly Clarke, ARNP (really LOVED her) completed my pap & breast exam. She went over the lab blood results from my previous appointment and completed the prescriptions I had provided from my previous appointment for my insurance mail order service. When I received the EOB and saw I was NOT being billed for my annual WWE but for $240.00 Office Visit. I called Cigna, they told me I had to call Dr Noh’s office and have them resubmit the claim with proper code “Preventative” instead of with a Diagnostic code. Cigna confirmed the Lab test for annual pap was billed properly. I called Dr Noh’s office inquiring about one of my (very important) prescriptions that wasn’t included with my other mail order Rx’s I received and explained the wrong code used to bill Cigna on my WWE appointment. I asked for my missing Rx be sent to Cigna for mail delivery ASAP. Later I spoke with Iris (Dr Noh’s wife, I’ve been told). She would not give me an opportunity to speak but very rudely told me since prescriptions were given, it isn’t considered WWE! It didn’t matter that I made the appointment for WWE, that I reminded the front desk it was for my annual exam the appointment day, or that I had pap & breast exam. None of that matters because of Rx’s which I provided at my previous appointment! Iris refused to correct and resubmit to Cigna. So instead of being covered 100%, I’m caught between Iris and Cigna and out more than another $100+! Finally, after checking Cigna website for my prescription status every day this week and seeing NO new Rx’s, I called Dr Noh’s office again and was put on hold for over 6 mins (I’m at work). Then Iris picked up and I asked to leave a message for Kimberly, ARNP about a prescription. Iris KNEW why I was calling because she had my chart and saw the message I’d left! Anyway, Iris told me we don’t prescribe HRT. I told her it would’ve been nice if someone had told me that bit of information at any point during me being a patient. So I guess by the time I find another doctor, pay another New Patient Office Visit, complete all their documentation, and go over my entire life medical history!!! Dr Noh’s wife has cost me hundreds of dollars, much wasted time, and even more STRESS. (BTW, I know I’m by far not the only patient that Iris has treated so rudely and unprofessionally!)
Dr. Noh will spend an hour with you if thats what you need. Kim, the PA , works mornings and is great! Helpful, caring, smart and thorough. I love the office staff too. If you need to be seen, they will fit you in. They have occasional Saturday hours also. Just awesome care.
Nice facility and staff. Been here several times over the year since I had to change doctor due to insurance.
Front desk HORRIBLE!!! There is a receptionist named Iris I believe. The most inconsiderate person I have ever met
This review is all about the doctor, just like it reads on top, *Tell us about your experience with Dr. Noh*.. HE SAVED MY LIFE, I have been a patient for over 10 years, always going to him for everything, pains, flu, migraines whatever it was. He listens to me every time always pleasant with me. In 2014 I went in for a hernia check I thought, after examining me he requested blood work and a PSA test, I'm 50 no family background of cancer, but he had a feeling. My results came back positive psa high and stage 3 prostate cancer! He sat with me we went over the different options and we decided to see a urologist make a long story short, He found the cancer we removed the prostate and now I'm cancer free!! So remember folks its about the DOCTOR forget the staff, he's the best! ps.......... I've NEVER had any issues with the staff.. I guess I'm polite to them and they are polite to me!
My family doc for 13 years. Always been there for us. Occasionally, we have had to wait but that is balanced by the fact that he always takes the time we need during our visit.
I too have been a patient of Dr. Noh from the start. I was with another doctor but my brother spoke so well of him, I had to see. He was so impressive, kind and truly dedicated to his profession. I was hooked & have been his patient for over 13 years. He is truly a great doctor and I am grateful for all his work, ...but all good things come to an end when you hire unprofessional people and don't want to hear your patient's complaints. The entire staff needs to go! I dread going in for appointments to get Rx refills and choose the walk in clinic for minor concerns. I have put up with all the office demands, forms, and moods because I have so much history with Dr. Noh. but ...i hate their lousy record keeping, not being able to speak to my doctor or get an Rx when I need one because they can't bill my insurance for a visit if I don't go in. . Most of all I hate the fact that I never see a bill or what is charged. I am looking for a new Pcp for my family, but I wish Dr. Noh would make a few changes for his patients.
I have been healthy most of my life, but recently began having problems, and thought it best to consult a primary care physician, rather than a walk-in clinic with a different doctor every time. Dr. Noh was in my area and on my insurance plan, so I gave it a try. I really wanted a physical for school (required annually for my graduate program) but upon arrival and after the entire waiting room heard the conversation a staff member had with my insurance company, I was wrongly informed (as I know now) that I needed a sick visit reason for it to be covered with a $20 copay. So, from across the waiting room, and with other patients present, I was asked to give private health information about why I am sick. Then, after waiting at least 30 minutes past my scheduled appointment time, even though I arrived 15 minutes early, an assistant took my BP, weight, temp., etc. I spent another 20 minutes in the waiting room. Typical of any doctor office, I do admit. My blood pressure was high (something I have known and been concerned about for months) and Dr. Noh wanted an EKG. I understood why, but assured him that in the last 6 months I had had 2 EKGs with normal results and offered to have them faxed to him. He declined, and said he wanted to be extra careful. I heard him speaking with the nurse/ MA outside my consultation room. The nurse/ MA expressed my concerns to him about insurance coverage and my ability to afford this procedure, to which he responded, "I don't care, get it done." When I finally had an assessment by Dr. Noh himself, it was like Patient Interaction 101: What Not to Do. He constantly interrupted me, made assumptions about my lifestyle to which I felt the need to defend myself rather than explain, and he refused to trust anything I said, at my own expense. The examples that stand out are pregnancy to explain my weight gain (which was impossible thanks to reluctant abstinence and birth control), and worrying me about pheochromocytoma (a rare adrenal tumor) to explain my steady blood pressure increase. He ordered lab tests including these things that would not be covered by my insurance, despite the fact I explained to him that I KNOW where the weight gain came from. I ate/ drank every one of those calories! He also managed to panick me so much that I sought a second opinion later. He said I was at a high risk of clot or stroke and that he wanted to take me off of my birth control, which was successfully treating other conditions. Anyway, although I complained of an asthmatic cough, he refused to give a short round of prednisone (which has worked for me in the past and did not even offer controller medications, and decided an antihistamine would do. Two days later, I was so dried out, the coughing was even worse. A walk-in clinic doctor listened to my concerns, and calmed me about the realities of my condition and what I should do now. I will definitely be looking for a new PCP.
Leaving because of Iris! Rude! Rude! She seems to think she is a doctor! Making decisions she has no business making. She crossed the line the other day taking me in the room writing rx she thought I should have to get me through. I only went in because my pain med rx was written wrong and needed to be rewritten. I do believe she violated my privacy law. I will let the lawyer decide that. Just look around the messy office, it's your records, it's your health. You decide!
If you like long wait times, rude Iris!!!! No follow ups on labs oh did I mention Iris that has no training, just look around being counter what a complete mess it is. Patients records scattered everywhere! Not one ounce of organizations. They talk about patients not in a nice way fir anyone to hear. Workers pounding on door telling Dr. NOH HURRY UP, we want to go home. I heard that a few times. Call and you get machine way more than a live person! Just look behind counter of the mess if you don't believe me. Do you really think your records are in order? Hahaha check for yourself.
I have been going to Dr. Noh for the last 3 years. On my first visit the office manager Iris asked me if I was a pain management patient. Note that it was my first visit. Obviously that was inappropriate. Answer = NO. She was very rude and seemed like I was not welcomed. It made me feel very uncomfortable. Needless to say Dr. Noh was polite. Every time I called to make an appointment Iris would answer and put me on hold, I could hear her talk to the staff very disrespectful as to me. I would be happy when I came to an appointment and she was not there. She talks down to people and acts like she is the doctor. She needs to check herself; she is at the front desk. I put up with her because Dr. Noh. She is manic and should not be talking to patients. She is a patient. Honestly she is ruining his practice and due to the fact he will be held liable.
Dr. Noh is a really sweet man. He is not the best but does his best to provide his patients with what they need. I enjoyed having him as a doctor. Yet, his wife who is also the office manager is another story. She is RUDE, DISRESPECTFUL, AND FORGETS THAT HER HUSBAND IS THE DOCTOR NOT HER!!! I have thyroids and needed a refill until I was able to go to see Dr. Noh the following week yet she said NO!! Apparently told me common sense would tell me if I need those pills I should have gone to see Dr. Noh sooner. Not to mention she told me I should know the policies in the office yet I never received a policy book. She even had the audacity to tell me to go to a walk-in clinic and check if I can get a prescription from them because she wasn't going to help me. Needless to say I will not longer be going there and neither will my boyfriend. Thanks to her, Dr. Noh will be losing a lot of patients.
Once again, your "lovely" office manager has run off two more patients. Who does she think she is? I have NEVER been spoken to by anyone the way she has. Maybe she is job security???...making people sick with her attitude. Although an inconvenience, we will seek a new doctor. No one deserves to be treated the way your wife treats your patients. We feel sorry for you. Iris might make a good prison guard.
Two main points before I get started (In my personal opinion): 1) Dr. Noh is the GREATEST - Absolutely fantastic 2) Regarding his wife, Iris, who is also the office manager -- well, a completely different story. All of the negative comments about her in these reviews are RIGHT ON TARGET. I am giving 2 stars: Dr. Noh: 4 stars. Office manager: 0 stars, so that averages out to 2 stars. I have been seeing Dr. Noh since his office next to Town & Country Hospital, in 2003. At that time I had another doctor I was very happy with but when she was on vacation and Dr. Noh was the on-call doctor, one visit was all it took. I had all of my records transferred and he has been my doctor since. Back then, it was only Dr. Noh, the office person Janet (who is wonderful and is a favorite with the patients) and a nurse. There have been many nurse changeovers over the years but Janet is still there. About 3 years later I moved over an hour away but I wouldn't have even thought to change doctors. Dr. Noh was more than worth a 1 hr 15 min away from my home. So that is how it has been for 5 years. The last couple of years it has been very difficult dealing with Mrs. Noh. I would just bite my tongue and not say anything because I just kept reminding myself if I choose Dr. Noh then she comes along with that decision. I will just mention a couple of incidents as this review is going to be long enough as it is. About 1 -1/2 years ago I went for a visit and she was openly complaining about my insurance plan and that she would probably drop them in the future. She was going on and on and I came close to just having to pay the full price and requesting reimbursement from my insurance company. If you don't want to deal with the plan then just discontinue accepting the patients, don't openly complain where everyone hears you, not just me. I have diabetes which requires lab testing every so often before I can get refills. I get prescriptions for probably 6 medications. Sometimes he would let me go longer between visits depending on how my lab work looked. The last time I visited him he gave me prescriptions with (3) 90-day refills. Additionally, I take a cholesterol pill to keep my cholesterol in check. This is a minor medication. Diabetes is what he really keeps close tabs on, thus, the regular labwork. I get my last 90-day refill on all of the medications this morning. Then a couple of weeks before I run out I get the lab work and see Dr. Noh a few days later for more refills. For some reason when I got the refills, I was shorted on the cholesterol medication. I call Dr. Noh's office and Iris answered. I explained the issue to her and asked that Dr. Noh refill this cholesterol prescription to match all the rest of them. She refused and said I had to come in. She was going on and on and I finally just simply asked her to please write a note for Dr. Noh to make the deision if he will give me the refill to match the other prescriptions and she said NO, SHE WILL NOT TAKE A MESSAGE AND TO DO WHATEVER I NEED TO DO !! THAT WAS THE LAST STRAW. I hung up on her. I am finished with Dr. Noh not because he isn't the best doctor I ever had but because I simply CAN NOT deal with her anymore. I dealt with her for so long because of Dr. Noh but I simply can not do it anymore. I was upset not because she said I had to come in but rather because SHE SAID NO, SHE WILL TAKE A MESSAGE. Who is the doctor, Dr. Noh or her? Goodbye Dr. Noh. I will miss you SOOO VERY MUCH :( :( :( :( Thank you so much for taking care of me so well for the last 10 years. I was one of your first patients. I'm not sure how many patients from 2003 that are still regular patients. You were brand-new when I first started coming to see you. Again, thank you for everything. You are the best and I wish you a lifetime of happiness and success.
I am sorry to say my experience with the staff was horrid. I came to Dr. Noh because I had recently moved into Westchase. My first visit consisted of a standard review of my health with the Doctor who was quite affable; the Doctor has an engaging manner. He reviewed my medications and refilled them without any changes. Three months later I called the office for a refill and they asked me to come in for a medication check. I told the office manager about the medications scripted three month prior by the doctor and she insisted that the doctor had not filled one of my prescriptions. The manager was quite insistent that I was mistaken regarding doctor's scrip three month earlier. I visited the pharmacy and they printed out the copy of the scrip in question which I brought along when I visited the office that day. I provided the copy to the staff. After meeting with the Dr. Noh it became apparent that the office manager had neglected to make a copy of the original scrip from three months ago and place it in the file. The manager was argumentative and accusatory in her manner even when presented with the copy of the original scrip. As I left the examining room to pay my bill and collect the new scrip, the staff handed me a "Patient Consent Form and Opioid Use" form. The form was a rough copy and contained 11 different items including: "risks; promise to keep only one physician; promise to keep only one pharmacy; agreement to allow random blood and urine tests to assess compliance; promise to taper off narcotic; restatement of agreement to random urine tests to monitor pain medication; understanding that lost or stolen opioids controlled substance will not be replaced and prescriptions will only be given during regular office hours and will not be given or refilled weekends or evenings. No narcotics over the telephone. If a prescription is stolen a police report is required for replacement; a psychological evaluation regarding addiction may be necessary at any time; deviation or loss of effectiveness will result in tapering or discontinuance of the narcotic; Doctor can contact any physician or pharmacy to confirm compliance; confirmation patient isn't using "street drugs." Understanding that failure to comply with any and all rules will be cause for immediate termination." I asked the staff why I was asked to sign such a form when the medications prescribed were not opioids. My response led to more unwarranted suspicion by the staff who said that if I didn't sign, they would not release the refill. They immediately suggested crossing out certain rules on the form which made me even more uncomfortable. I took the form home to consider it's merit. I called the staff days later and I was told that they were terminating me as a patient. After having already spent money to establish myself as a patient with this practice I acquiesced and signed the form. The staff said they would get back to me. A week went by and still no answer. I called today and was informed by the office manager that the Doctor was uncomfortable with my reaction to the consent form and further that he was preparing a letter of termination which they want me to sign if I want my prescription filled for the next 30 days. I have decided to go elsewhere for medical care. I think the climate in healthcare has become Kafkaesque.
Dr, Noh is a good man and a fine doc. He's worth the wait and takes care of whatever needs to be taken care of and the staff always fits me in. Iris and the gals are great. Work with them and I guarantee the'll work with you. They do the absolute best they can as busy as they are..
