I booked through Zocdoc but when I reached I was told the doctor won’t reach for another. Despite waiting for an hour+ the nurse at check-in did not put me first in line. To top it off, the nurses or doctordidn’t apologize for taking me after an hour and a half. When I did see the doctor she seemed good, but not sure if that makes up for the wasted time to spent for the 11 mins visit.

I came in with a problem but I felt like the doctor was a little impatient with me. She offered a steroid shot and I refused. When I asked her about other options she kept saying “ I don’t know”. Not coming back for sure

It was almost an hour and 45 min until I was seen. Then felt it was a rushed exam. The MD was professional though.

Dr. Sonoa Au seemed very knowledgable and confident, though was also quick to respond. I didn't feel I was able to get my full point and context across before being interjected. I didn't feel I was listened to.

I made the appointment for a full body check up as melanoma runs in my family. I had to wait a little bit, but the staff seemed to be trying to keep things moving along as best as they could. It'sa small office in park slope so there don't seem to be many rooms to see patients. I saw 2... Anyway when Dr. Au came in she was very friendly, looked me over quickly, paid attention to the specific things I pointed out, and then left. The whole thing took 5 minutes. I'll probably go back again in a year, but I would recommend that if you go to see her that you know very specifically what you want her to look for and don't be shy about bringing anything up because the appointment will be over in a flash!

I didn't really have any complaints but I felt the appointment was very rushed (barely 10 mins). She didn't ask the usual questions like the other dermatologists I've seen (like what long have you had it/what have you tried), which mademe think she didn't really give it a thought (I have moderate to severe acne) before writing me a prescription. I felt like she didn't really bother.

My daughter had an appointment 4 days ago with Dr. Au. My daughter waited for 50 minutes, received 2 quick prescriptions, and has not been able to get one of them filled because Dr. Au's office hasn't responded to calls fromour pharmacy for authorization. The office never answers when I try to phone, only an emergency call center. There is no email address listed for me to contact. Extremely disappointed with the service and with the poor management causing us to waste so much time.

Dr. Au is very friendly and professional. Everyone at this office was pleasant and competent. The waiting area would be vastly improved if they'd turn the volume off on the TV. The new patient forms are creepily invasive (you want myspouse's social security number? really?) but on the other hand, no one complained when I handed them in with the social security number fields left blank.

I wish I could have had all the information on the Zocdoc form. Since it was my first time, I had to fill out paperwork at the office. I am legally blind and the office did not have any enlarged copiesalthough they did offer me a magnifying glass. One of the reasons I use this app is to avoid hard copies of paperwork. I know there are certain things I have to sign but a large majority of that infomrmation was already on the Zocdoc app. Other than that everything was great.

My appointment was in the morning so the wait was not long. My appointment was not rushed but it was just her answering questions without much elaboration, for example she said 'you can use a mask from Sephora' which felt vauge-Sephora has so many products- so I had to ask what ingredients i should look for, etc. She was nice enough, but i will be consulting a different dermatologist.

Long wait to be seen. The computer in the exam room was broken so several receptionists were coming in and out during my whole exam while I was just in the gown. The actual exam was rushed and didn't seem very thorough.

Office is easy to find comma and her staff is pleasant and nice. However I think that there should be a better way to discuss sensitive issues like payment unless I didn't need that so I didn't get that opportunity. Thedoctor was friendly open and seemed to attend and understand what the issue was. It's good that she gave options as well for me to consider.

Dr. Au was extremely friendly. Her personality reminded me a lot of myself, so I felt very comfortable with her. We discussed various treatment options at different price points, which was helpful to have choices. The office set up is alittle weird, and the exam room has seen better day (very beat up looking), but I'll be back.

The office staff is friendly and attentive, a rarity these days that makes all the difference. Doctor Au was likewise attentive and patient. The office seems to stress getting you in on time, but an unexpected surgery may have skewed myexperience in that area. The office itself is very nice - clean and comfortable.
