What People Say About Dr. Somharn Saekow, MD

My experience with Dr.Saekow mirrors the statement by T.A. in San Diego in May 2016. He doesn't ask questions, my full body look during annual exams are under 5 minutes and he rushes out the door. The nurse says he is so good he only needs a couple of minutes to totally scan the body. It's frustrating because I go in with questions about different changes on my skin but do not get a chance to discuss. I do not feel safe with his review.

I always feel rushed by Dr. Saekow, like he has one foot out the door during the entire appointment. He generally spends less than 5 min with me, even if I'm having some liquid nitrogen treatments. When a full-body scan takes him less than 2 minutes, one has to wonder just how thorough it really is. During my most recent appointment, he was running late, and I discovered that they book his appointments at 10 min intervals, which makes me feel like it's just about collecting lots of $.
