    Horrible doctor, horrible staff. Horrible uncaring office manager. I go to this office and see a NP. I scheduled an appointment specifically with Chai to remove some age spots etc. I made the appointment specifically for this purpose ONLY. She was late, rushed through, checked my lesions and said you need to see a dermatologist. Exit Chai from the room. I called the office manager to plead to credit my account for the copay and she never called back.

    I would not recommend her to others. When asked questions, she said she doesn't have time to talk to you and demand for you to make another appointment to discuss about your issues. The staff there are not friendly at all and often the wait time is very long. One of my appointment was cancelled without informing me and I took a trip there for nothing and also waited for a longtime to learn that she is not able to see me and to come back 4 hours later, I wasted whole day for no service.
