Only go there if you don't mind waiting for more than an hour past your appointment time. And to make matters worst they took in a walk-in before me. The staff was no help at all when questioned about the delay and there only response was we do what the doctors say.

I have seen Dr. Hang, several times over the years. He has always had a perfect diagnosis of the problem and taken care of it immediately. I feel very confident in this man, and trust him implicitly. If you want an experienced Doctor, he's your man. I pray that he never retires.

Patients beware! I had an age spot frozen off a few months ago by Dr. Hwang (non-cancerous, cosmetic reasons only) and now the spot has turned into a dark ring with no pigmentation left in the center. There is also an indentation in the skin due to freezing off too many layers of skin. Instead of removing an age spot, it literally looks like someone put a cigarette out on my face! Dr. Hwang admitted that he froze the area too long (eight seconds of freezing) and that the results were permanent.
