Came to see the doctor to help me with an onset of adult acne breakout (mild, but still a pain to deal with). He prescribed me antibiotics and a topical gel, making my acne SEVERELY worse and drying my skin outlike crazy. Would not recommend seeing a dermatologist for treating acne unless you're extremely desperate.

The visit lasted 4 minutes with the doctor trying to run away multiple times. The doctor wouldn't discuss the prescriptions he was making. A week after the visit the prescription didn't yet make it to the pharmacy. The doctor's office wouldn't take the phone to resolve the situation.

Dr. Khuu was a knowledgeable individual, however gave off the conspicuous vibe that he did not want to spend much time with the patient (me), and give his recommendations as quickly as possible.

I've never met a doctor or doctor's assistant who seemed to care so little about health and holistic wellness. I waited for 20 minutes and then was hurried through the appointment which barely took 5 minutes. The assistant wouldn't make eyecontact. The doc refused to order a blood test for me even though I'm pretty sure my dry skin is just a symptom of something else. This appt was just a complete waste of my time.

This doctor is one of the worst doctors I have ever come across. He did no skin assessment and he didn't even look at my foot. I went for wart freezing, and he didn't even check my other foot or thesurrounding toes for warts. My experience with him was absolutely awful. I was in so much pain afterwards that I couldn't even walk. I still can't walk! My entire foot is filled with blisters and he just sprayed the substance everywhere. I am glad he didn't see the wart on the underside of my foot! My toes have doubled in size. I am so unhappy with this! If I could, I would leave a 0 star review. The only positive thing was that I didn't have to wait as long. Also the waiting room was basically empty. It honestly felt as if he had no knowledge in the medical field. I DO NOT RECOMMEND.

I do not recommend this doctor. His office didn't review what I was coming into his office for. I drove 45 minutes for the service only to arrive and he want to change all the the prescriptions and treatments that haveworked for me in the past. DO NOT GO HERE.

I came in a new patient and felt very welcomed right away. However, I felt like there could be better customer service at the desk, especially when going over payments, deductibles, co-pays, etc. I have just switched to a new insuranceso I get it was a little frustrating, but as a new customer I would have definitely appreciated a little more time talking about signing these documents. Overall, talked to the nurse about my patient history for approximately 10 minutes. Dr. Khuu came in and talked to me for about 5 minutes. Then I was out with a prescription. Fast and easy! However, I did have to continuously call the office about my prescription that they said they had sent over. Overall, took me about 2 hours just to get my prescription - even though they said they had "sent" it over. Will update next appointment, but overall thank you Dr. Khuu!

Dr. Khuu didn't spend much time with me -- but I came to see him for a specific reason, and he handled it great aplomb. He provided detailed instructions for care and follow-up -- all within about seven minutes. And thatseven minutes was less than the time I waited in his office to see him (or rather, be called in by his assistant who performed the preliminary screening and intake -- probably ten minutes). Fast, efficient, took the time he needed, and then he was off to his next patient. Thank you, Dr. Khuu!

Longest wait time I've ever had, they took patients before me that arrived after me and after my scheduled time and they never faxed my prescription to the pharmacy. The doctor himself was nice and knowledgeable but the overall experience washorrible. Don't go here unless you don't mind waiting for over an hour and don't need your prescription faxed in.
