Dr. Charles is a trustworthy professional who strives to give the patient the desired results. His procedures are close to pain-free! He has a caring and down-to-earth manner. I respect his knowledge and highly recommend his work as well as Dr. Fang who is in the same office.

A caring and very dedicated MD, I would without hesitation recommend Dr. Charles to anyone experiencing skin questions. It seems dermatologists are not that common and availability for talented ones can be a challenge. That is the case with Dr. Charles. I like him as an MD because he listens very intently, queries to see if he understood, thinks about his response and squarely answers with his medical opinion - which is what patients seek. A great human being and medical specialist. A++

Pill pushing doc that doesn't want to get to the root of a patients problems. Recommended that I NOT see an allergist for my skin rash breakouts because it was supposedly not related to food. I wasn't in agreement with him so I went to see an Allergist anyway and found out I have Celiac Disease, hence the reason for my breakouts!!! Also Dr. Charles spent less than 5 minutes preforming a skin scan exam, that should have taken a lot longer and didn't even look at many areas such as under hair.
