The worst Dermatology ever. I give you tips if you have to go; 1. The booking system is broken: Don't trust their online booking system even you receive a confirmation/reminder email. 2. Be patient in a room I had waited for 45 minutes after I was told "The doctor will come soon" by her...Read More

This was the WORST experience I have EVER had at a doctor's office. Both my parents are physicians, so I know better than most that seeing patients on-time is hard, but I sat in the waiting room for 2 HOURS! I ended up walking out without seeing a doctor or any sort of apology/follow-up. Overall,...Read More
