Dr. Soong has treated me in the past and I loved her. However, today I waited over 2 hours and was then told that it would at least be another 45 minutes. I am a professional as well; I would never treat my clients with this disrespect. Dr. Soong was standing next to me as I was leaving. She offered no apology. I was told get an early appointment to avoid the wait. They should not overbook to the point of making patients wait so long. Everyone in the waiting room said this is the norm for her.

I have been seeing Dr. Soong for 9 plus years! She has always been attentive and addressed my skin health issues openly and honestly. I trust her completely with my issues. She not only tells me the information I need but also provides samples and/or additional materials to read/research. I have and will recommend her to others.

We have been patients of Dr. Soong for many years. She and her staff are experienced, professional, friendly. The wait time may be longer than we like at times, but her attention to our concerns is well worth the wait.
