The assistant working was very nice and took the time to really ask questions, but I didn’t appreciate my visit with the Dr. , it felt rushed and demeaning as if I should know things that I wasn’t knowledgable of.

Wow - she was excellent. Was seen swifty; it's a nice, clean, and modern office. Her front office person was kind and sharp. Bedside manner was really great - she explained everything as an adult-to-an-adult, and not in the condescending waysome doctors do. Really impressed. Can't say enough kind things.

The best Dermatologist I’ve ever seen. I went in for adult acne and the Dr was able to quickly diagnose and provide me with the safest, least harsh treatment. I’m totally acne free now.

Dr. Tzu was very friendly and attentive. I had a procedure done and I am so much of a scaredy cat. Dr. Tzu explained to me thoroughly, step by step, what she was about to do and what equipments she wasgrabbing. She made sure that I am okay along the way. She explained my medications very well and made sure I understand them. The office is very clean and white. I came out of the office, feeling relieved and well taken care of. I recommend Dr. Tzu

Dr. Tzu is extremely nice although a little curt which can make you nervous if you aren't expecting it. She tends to be on the safe side when evaluating moles (remove vs. observe); however, when dealing with possible skin cancer, itsbetter to be safe than sorry! It is extremely easy to make appointments and you are typically seen right away which is a plus.

I think Dr. Zhu is a true professional and a terrific doctor. While I had previously treated with Dr. Zhu for skin issues, etc., at this appointment, I requested a consultation for aesthetic enhancement using Botox and filler. Dr. Zhu tookher time explaining everything to me and did a terrific job. I love my lip filler and I achieved what I was hoping to! Additionally, Leah, the medical assistant, is also really wonderful and helpful. I love this office!

I came here for somewhat of an emergency appointment because of something that came up on my skin. I'm very particular with doctors (I'm disappointed in most of them!) but Dr. Tzu had a great bedside manner, was very knowledgeable andI truly appreciated that she took the time to thoroughly explain my condition to me - what it was, scientific conclusions about it thus far, how long it will take to resolve, etc. I'd definitely recommend her to anyone in need of a dermatologist.

Went to have a cyst checked out and the doctor laughed at me for being concerned about it. Also had some other questions and she didn't take them too seriously. I felt completely rushed. Oh, and I'm a digital native, andthe check-in process on the "iPad" was absolutely horrendous, confusing, and time-consuming.

I have been seeing Dr. Tzu regularly for over 2 years. She has done such a great job of helping me with all of my questions from changing and new moles to having eczema. She’s worked with me when issues progressedand new medication was needed. Even offered me a coupon to save on a newer cream. Her staff are pleasant and always welcoming. I had problems getting there with a sick passenger on the subway and she even waited for me! Thank you Dr. Tzu.

Dr Tzu was kind in some ways but awkward and made me feel like an idiot. There was an absurd amount of digital paperwork to fill out. One other staff member made me feel foolish, as well. You shouldn't feel guiltyor silly in a doctor's office. I wouldn't go back.

Though Dr. Tzu was professional, I was unimpressed by her choice of staff. Her receptionist was rude and continued chatting on the phone socially while I waited to get her attention for my first visit. I gave her the benefit ofthe doubt, but found her equally unpleasant on my second visit. Her medical assistant also seemed uninformed, and somewhat uncaring. I had a biopsy done which continued to bleed while I waited for it stop while in the waiting room. After over 20 minutes, I got the assistant's attention. She brought me into an exam room, gave me cursory instructions before rushing off, and not checking on me again. I had to find my own gauze and bandaid before leaving.

I've been seeing Dr Tzu regularly for two years since I went in for a changing mole that turned out to be melanoma. I simply can't say enough good things about her, but I'll never forget receiving a personal phone callfrom her the day I had surgery with the oncologist she had referred me to just two weeks earlier because, quite frankly, I forgot to tell her office I had it scheduled and she was concerned. I'm pretty sure that says it all.
