The doctor was very thorough and great at explaining things. I went for a general check as well as to ask about a rash. He diagnosed me right away, thoroughly examined my body for abnormal moles, and helped me obtain themost cost-efficient treatment since I was paying out of pocket. Great doc, great experience. Will definitely be back for all of my derm. needs.

I instantly loved this place! I previously was going to another dermatology office and was very unimpressed with the Drs and staff. I was so impressed the moment I walked into this office! The staff was fantastic, I was seen rightaway, and Dr. Vu Nguyen was so thorough, pleasant, and so incredibly helpful in explaining everything! I will be recommending him to everyone I know!
