Dr. Ding is an amazing dermatologist. When I first walked in, the receptionists made me feel very welcomed. Dr. Ding diagnosed me really well. Right away when she saw what happened on my body, she knew right away what it was. Dr. Ding is very professional. I would highly recommend this office to anyone who needs to see the dermatologist. When I got referred to a different dermatologist and saw that the dermatologist I got referred to had really bad ratings. I had made an appointment with them and right away when I found Dr. Ding on Zocdoc, I immediately canceled my appointment with them and came to Dr.Ding office. Overall, highly recommend.

I was really impressed by my visit with Dr Ding I felt that the staff were very friendly and helpful they made me feel welcome and comfortable . The waiting time was quick and I was seen together with my daughter who had an appointment with me the same day which made it more pleasant. They did two biopsy’s on me which I was surprised when the Doctor was not concerned what type of insurance I had or if it would be covered. Dr Ding was very thorough and informative to my daughter and I she was very polite and asked us if we had any questions and answered any we had my expectations exceeded more than I expected and I highly recommend this doctor to anyone of my family or friends. I will definitely continue to see her for any future problems or consultations

This was my first time visiting a dermatologists, in actual fact it’s my first time visiting a doctor since moving to US. Everyone I spoke to at the practice was polite, kind, understanding & really listened to my problems. I actually went in for a few things and they were happy to discuss everything. They gave great advice & also helped out with how the prescription process works. Definitely recommend based on my experience, now just hoping treatment works. Wait time was very short (5mins) & the waiting area and treatment rooms were very clean.

Dr. Ding is a great doctor and has terrific bedside manner! I've seen Dr. Ding before, all my visits have been short. This one, however, felt particularly short. It would be great if Dr. Ding spent more time with her patients and did not rush to leave the room.

The pros are that the office is clean and the staff is friendly. However, Dr. Ding seemed like she did not want to be there as if she was in a rush. She also did not seem to be empathetic to my concerns and was very vague when describing/explaining treatment options.

Dr. Ding was attentive and asked several questions to understand my condition. I mentioned another concern to her but it wasn't really addressed. She did address my main concern which was my eczema. Her staff are friendly and professional, and the office is clean and spacious. Appointment was relatively short, about 10 to 15 minutes, but informative. She did prescribe me some medications. Will try those and hope it helps. Would definitely come back to see her.

The doctor herself is not very warm nor skilled at explaining what is going on or follow up communication. What was really alarming about my visit was when I called her office because my insurance didn't want to fill one of her prescriptions. Her receptionist proceeded to authoritatively tell me what medications I needed to be on and how I should proceed with treatment. She was abrasive, rude, and to my knowledge not qualified to be giving out medical advice. I finally got the medical assistant on the phone and asked her to have the doctor call me to discuss. She never called me although I did get a voicemail the next day from her staff saying I was prescribed an over the counter medication. I wasn't as concerned about the prescription anymore, because of course I sought another opinion after that terrible interaction. I was concerned that her unwillingness to contact me supports the empowerment of non medical staff to be offering medical advice. Be very careful at this office. That tone is not just unprofessional it's dangerous.

While the front of house staff could be a bit more professional (arguing in front of patients, forgetting to return insurance card, asking for payment as I was halfway out the door), Dr. Ding’s attention and care more than made up for the experience. She had a lovely bedside manner and I will definitely see her for my annual checkups.
