Patient Comments (3)
San Leandro, CA |
Terrible doctor. I had her for years every time I would go see her I saw her assistant who would make me spend $50 each time on different face products that made me break, I adviced her I had use 5 different products she recommended and my face was worse she said my face would never get better and took me off my prescription medicine. I left that TERRIBLE TERRIBLE doctor and now I am seeing a great one in Fresno. Do not let this doctor take your money absolutely rude and terrible.
Escalon, CA |
This doctor and her PA are very rude. They are always running late. If you ever want to ask additional questions - they say "Make another appointment". I feel if they are 10 to 20 minutes behind schedule - they can sit with me for that time and answer my questions or concerns. I am taking my business elsewhere.
Oakdale, ca |
Oakdale office staff is rude. I have never actually met Dr. Biren, just her PA Donna.
