I had what she labeled as acne and treated me. I was confused after a short time because to ME this didn’t seem to be acne!ive been a patient for over 15 years and I felt I wasnt being medically treated or looked at thoroughly and have never had my skin scanned! A few years ago being fed up with breakouts all over my body for years, she finally asked if I was itchy. YES! Oh, you have eczema! (Really??!! Ya think?!) she’s gotten a bit rude and I was loyal for far too long to have been largtdismissef and then spoken to rudely! I’m firing her! Time for a new dermatologist, one who’d better be thorough and competent and professional!!

I love Dr. Chow! I've been a patient of her's for almost 10 years. I struggled with adult acne and she was finally the doctor who cleared my skin! She didn't give up on me, worked hard to find a solution to my acne and now I have beautiful, clear skin that actually gets complimented on! She is a friendly, very knowledgeable, helpful, and fun doctor. I enjoy seeing her. Her staff is always friendly, as well.

I have been seeing Dr. May Chow for years and was always happy with her as my dermatologist until recently. I saw Dr. Chow 4/11 and she informed me that my insurance was no longer accepted, she refilled a couple prescriptions to tide me over and basically said goodbye. I was shocked! I called my insurance company 4/12 & they said they DO still provide coverage for Dr. Chow's facility. I waited 2 months to see Dr. Chow & then when I did, I didn't get treatment! I don't want to see her again!

When I called to schedule an appointment as a new patient, I was fortunate enough to get in the next morning. I had developed a rash. Dr. Chow listened to my explanation, examined the area, also did a full body scan, and then I she sat down next to her computer as she went over everything. She printed this information out and I went over it with her. She gave me several samples to use so I wouldn't have to pay for an expensive prescription. She was patient, professional, and thorough.

I was misdiagnosed, no full body check was done, my concerns were brushed off. All in all, a bad experience.
