I feel this physician is very under-educated in terms of skin conditions. I have hx of squamous and basal, and have numerous spots, so I expect my total body check to take more than 1 minute. I expressed my concern about this to her, but she just said, "as we get more experienced, we get faster." She had only been in dermatology for 10 years???. Warning-she practices from fear, so if you are in any kind of pain, do not see this physician. I had shingles and she recommended Tylenol???

Disappointed, lack of results, continued charges. Went for swollen knuckle. Diagnosed wart and they tried 3 times to burn it off. Did not work so did laser removal of entire knuckle area with open wound with pain. Not successful either just came back. Did this 2 more times without positive result. Asked for a no charge since had spent already over $700 and was told they could only pay for the lab test. Received bill. Said they never said that. Paying another $70. Going to different doctor.

Dr. Vu is the best dermatologist I've had so far. I've been through 2 previous dermatologists who both were equally indifferent to my concerns as a 20 y/o female college student with terrible cystic acne. Acne isn't life threatening, but it can impact your school/social life at a time where you really want to focus without worrying about self-confidence. Dr. Vu's approach to my personal treatment is warm, effective, and very reassuring. She has my complete confidence as a patient.

I was very happy with my visit with Dr. Vu. I didn't feel rushed at all. She took the time to explain things in detail and I'm confident in her recommendations. We discussed concerns and she offered solutions for some things I had tried to have taken care of by other dermatologists and physicians but got nowhere. Wish I had gone to her years ago. I found the staff to be very nice as well. The wait time didn't seem too long. Sadly, I'm not accustomed to this level of service.

12-7-15 I want my money back and I am going to every web site and all the associations she is connected with to tell them about the bad experience I had going there, I was told by two different staff members she could take care of my issue, she did not, I ask for my money back, I was told no a service was provide ! Not the service I ask for ! Identify these parasites or mites on me, and help me get rid of them. She said people have bugs inside and out that is normal, I want my money back
