I’ve seen Dr tang twice now and think she’s excellent. She burned a great deal of pre-cancerous growths off. Did not push products on me but gave me recommendations which was very helpful. The prices the clinic charges are in range of those found on Amazon and I would rather support a small clinic than jeffbexos.

Although she is a very good doctor, her office practice is very poorly run. She is always running late. I have waited 1 hour often and even walked out several times because of the delay. Such a shame. I now go to another dermo practice that runs on time and it is such a nice experience.

I've never been to a doctor before who tries to sell you so many products sold in the offfice. I want a physician not a salesperson. I'm going elsewhere.
