This wasnt a full check up, just a look at some specific moles I was worried about. She was very knowledgeable and respectful, and super friendly, which is something I find important in a doctor. I felt much better after talkingto her and will definitely schedule my annual with her from now on.

Dr. Chock was friendly and professional and answered all the questions I had for her. I was surprised she did not bring up accutane right away since that’s what most dermatologist suggest when treating adult acne.

Dr Chock diagnosed and treated my issues competently and walked me through the cause and effect of each of the treatments. She approaches issues from a medical perspective without trying to sell add-on products or treatments. At the same time,she understands that we all want our skin to glow and gave me a few over the counter recommendations (moisturizer, sunscreen etc.) and issue-specific prescription medicines to address concerns that were purely cosmetic but bothered me. Further, she navigated me towards solutions personalized for my skin (color, texture, health etc.) by providing suitable background. After our session I did my own research and validated every one of her recommendations. Thank you Zocdoc for introducing me to Dr. Chock. PS: The office visits usually have one or two supporting staff members in the room while the doctor is seeing you. This can make opening up about sensitive skin issues awkward. If this is an issue, you may want to ask them to step out.

Great and painless. Knowledgeable and caring doctors and staff. Zocdoc needs to work on getting their process better. I had to refill forms and give insurance ID again inspite of having uploaded it on Zocdoc.

Monika identified my skin problem almost immediately and was able to provide treatment although my appointment was just supposed to be a consultation. She was very professional during the whole process and took time to answer all my questions to my satisfaction.
