Dr. Vu was very thorough in my visit and listened to my concerns. The nurses were very attentive with setting up follow up appt and getting prescriptions was effortless. His office ambience is pristine yet welcoming. I arrived at my appt 15 min early and he was able to see me right away. I have never waited more than a couple mins to be seen. Everything was quick and easy. My ailments were resolved and I would recommend him to anyone. Really great derm.

The place was very nice. I arrived early and was still seen right away. I was asked to see the doctor before I could even fill out my forms. The doctor was nice and professional. Very quick but still informative. Just what I want out of a doctor.

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 the most 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 right away, and Dr. Vu Nguyen was so thorough, pleasant, and so incredibly helpful in explaining everything! I will be recommending him to everyone I know!
