Dr. Ding is professional, clear, and clearly informed. She helped me realize I had a rash issue all along that previous dermas just suggested putting Vaseline on it, or would just brush it off entirely.

Dr. Ding is very professional and caring. I felt that she really listened to me and considered my health and best interests as top priorities. I have seen other dermatologists in the city who are much more interested in selling theirown products than taking care of the patient. This experience was totally different! I will definitely be back to see Dr. Ding!

Staff was pleasant and I was seen right on time. Dr. Ding was friendly and knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. I wish that she would have waited to explain what she was prescribing until she had finished the examso that I didn't have to try to process what she was saying and ask any questions I had while laying face down half naked and still being examined. In case the feedback gets through to the doctor, I wanted to point out that many patients have trouble asking questions of medical professionals and are much more comfortable if they can sit up and have a conversation face to face...preferably clothed. I still had a great overall impression of Dr. Ding and the practice, but this felt pretty awkward so I wanted to mention it.

My whole life ive been seeing dermatologists and never had a good experience. They always rushed me through and never explained to me what was going on. But Catherine Ding was the complete opposite!! She actually seemed to care about myskin issues and explained everything very throughly. Every question i had, she answered with pleasure. Now i know exactly what i should be doing and what i shouldn’t put on my face for my mild acne, scars, and pores.

First visit to a skin doctor with my 5 year old to get a baseline. Staff and Dr. Ding were friendly and took the time to explain things. Our wait time was about 30 minutes. We are used to waiting forour pediatrician so it wasn't an issue for us. The staff provided my daughter with crayons and paper which was a nice touch. Office is clean and modern. We would come again and recommend to others. Completing the check in forms on ZocDoc really helps, because the office prints them out. We only had to complete a few more forms when we got there.
