The job got done rather quickly, although did not sense any compassion I was in discomfort through out the entire procedure, and left feeling disregarded, rushed and plainly unimportant. Especially if I'm allergic to adhesive why use it to patch up the wound?
What went well
  • Appointment scheduling
  • Office environment
  • Staff friendliness
What could be improved
  • Long wait times
  • Appointment was rushed
  • Didn't listen or answer questions
  • Didn't explain conditions well
  • Didn't trust the provider's decisions

Dr. Huang made me feel very comfortable. She did a great job with my mastectomy. Also, her and her nurse are very patient and caring. I did not feel rushed at all. I left her office feeling good despite my cancer diagnosis. She is very competent.
