Dr. Harboldt is amazing! However, his office staff is less than adequate when setting up appointments or speaking to patients. I was scheduled to see Dr. Harboldt for a follow up but staff neglected to inform me he would be in Laredo, so now I mist wait ANOTHER week to see him. Extremely frustrated with such ineptitude!

I would not recommend Dr. Lin to family or friends. I was infected with MRSA after surgery for melanoma in his office.

Great service, friendly environment and professionalism. Unfortunately I have have to drive an hour to see Dr Lin but it is totally worth it.

They said I probably had skin cancer even though two follow up visits with two different dermatologist (one a much more seasoned and well regarded dermatologist in the valley) did not understand how they drew that conclusion. They did a biopsy and did not explain to me what it would entail until they were holepunching a piece of skin out of my neck! Horrible bedside manner, horrible experience. If I had not been pregnant I would have followed up with a formal complaint- I just wanted to move on.
