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