Patient Comments (5)
The Dr. had great reviews so I made an apt. at her office. Unfortunately, she's more interested in pushing her own business-money making agenda in selling their own ointments and skin-care items. If I needed those, I'd just buy them for cheaper online! I don't like going to doctors who are essentially business men or women in her case, trying to make a quick buck more off of patients is highly unprofessional in her field. I would recommend going to a Derm. with more experience than her.
The reviews are true. Dr. Ding is a careful and considerate physician. Wonderful! She is my new Dermatologist.

Dr. Ding and all the staffs are very friendly, patience, and informative. She make sure that I understand everything clearly and take time to answer all my concerns and questions. Dr.Ding and her staffs pay very close attention to detail and take such a good care during every procedures.

The level of service was superb. Was very detailed with the diagnosis, treatment and side effects. Their attention to detail was very good; they double check the questions I've answered via ZocDoc and refined some of the answer making sure everything was accurate. Office was very clean but that might be because it is a fairly new establishment. It might a little hard to find where the office is because there are 3 offices with the same street address.

Dr Catherine Ding was great. I came with a dermalogical concern and she worked with me to take a course of action. The office is new and clean, and the front desk staff were polite and courteous. It was also a short wait before seeing the doctor, which I appreciated. I definitely recommend Dr Ding.
