I like Dr. Ding and I think she’s a very skilled doctor, but every time I visit her office, I end up spending 50 min waiting to be seen and then I’m rushed through a 5 min appointment. In addition, someof the women working behind the front desk don’t seem very well trained and fail to manage the waiting room effectively. Unfortunately, this will be my last visit to Dr Ding.

Needed to see a derm for a weird rash I noticed on my arms and legs and Dr. Ding had an appt time available at a convenient location so I figured I'd give her a shot based on the good reviews.I'n so glad I did! Office is large and clean, front desk staff was courteous, and Dr. Ding herself was incredibly knowledgeable and sweet, but still kept it quick and professional. She diagnosed the rash pretty much immediately and also gave me some advice on a beauty mark on my face that had been bothering me for years. Would absolutely return if I had another derm-related concern.

I have seen Dr. Ding a few times now. I'm surprised at how eager she is to prescribe medications or creams with zero interest in potential causes. For those happy to take pills or invest in products, she is fine. Itsalso a bit strange how they photograph your issues on their ipads, rather than the doctor just doing an exam... I noticed she wasn't very kind to her assistants and had to wait about 40 minutes, another patient left while I was waiting after waiting in her exam room for too long. Overall fine, but for me a bit to centric on products rather than understanding what is going on.

Dr. Ding is very informative & she truly cares for her patients. She's the only Dr. that was determined to treat my daughters skin condition instead of just giving her unhealthy antibiotics like the previous physicians. Thanks again Doc!

I would highly recommend Dr. Ding if you're looking for a dermatologist. While looking for a dermatologist, it seemed as though there are a lot of clinics that are more like spas looking to scam people out of money than doctor'soffices. The process of checking in was very straightforward. I appreciated that they told me up front what I could expect to pay for my visit. In addition, all of the staff was very helpful and professional. Dr. Ding was very thorough, listened to and addressed all my concerns and was very proactive about explaining everything to me and letting me know my options. It was a great experience, especially having never been to a Dermatologist before!

Nice and professional. However, I am a shy patient and wish she would have spent more time talking with me about my previous acne issues and options and explaining why she was prescribing what she did rather than just saying “this will work”.

Went for my first ever skin screening. Screening itself was pretty simple- Dr Catherine is satisfactory. Screening took less than 10 minutes but the wait time was about 50 minutes before I saw the doctor, so that part was not really ideal.

Catherine Ding, MD, FAAD was very friendly and professional. She explains what is going on with you and puts her own personal experience/ touch to the visit. I was very nerveous with the visit for I am self-conscience about what ishappening to me. I don't like to be pre judged base on my appearance. However, I was looking for answers and I got them. I look forward to further visits with Catherine. For she knows her stuff (dedication). Thanks
