I believe she is a good doctor the visit was rushed but I will try her again. Every doctor has a different range of information to offer and she has hers, which maybe be limited to some and sufficient to others.On my next visit this review will be revisited and updated but for now it was a satisfactory visit pending future opportunities to visit the office.

I have been dealing with a skin issue for more than a year. I've been to two previous dermatologists and two allergists. No one had been able to label my condition. Dr. Chan, took the proper steps, first biopsy then sentme to an allergist. Because of Dr. Chan, they finally found that I am allergic to five common chemicals used in everyday products. I have to go see her again soon to discuss treatment options.

Dr. Wai is phenomenal. I do wish some dermatologists will actually examine face without always assuming its hormornal acne. Nonetheless she prescribed me meds that seem to be working.

Overall the visit went really well. Her medical assistant was very nice. The front desk women were very sweet too. I recommend fill out our paperwork online if you can. It saved me a lot of time. I was in andout in under 10 minuets. Dr. Chan was a little quick checking me out and didn’t really say what she was doing, but she did listen to me and explain the medication and why it didn’t work the first time and what we are going to do different. I would definitely go again if the need arose. It was also convenient yo have the parking garage attached to the bulidg. $5 for the hour was definitely worth the convenience.

Dr. Chan was great the first time I saw her. And I chose her due to her great reviews, and I was able to get an appointment same day. She addressed all of my concerns and was patient. Her caring natureis the reason I went back to her for another skin issue. This time I had a completely different experience. She didn't seem personable at all, not even asking me how I was doing with the issue she had diagnosed me for the first visit. She was short and didn't really answer my questions. I would go back to her again only if I'm in a pinch and need to see someone ASAP, as it was easy to get an appointment the day before.

Great visit today. Extremely clean office, polite staff, thorough medical assistant. Dr. Chan was very professional and detailed when answering questions and simply offering information about my concerns and the insanity of insurance. I found a new dermatologist.

I scheduled an appointment the previous day for a visit the following day during my lunch break. The office was clean, neat and comfortable. Everyone there was polite and friendly. The doctor saw me right away after i filled out somepaperwork. She started my treatment and got to the heart of the matter. I highly recommend her.

Appointment went okay. Wait time wasn’t too long. I think I might have went after lunch so I was the second patient there. By the time I was called in she had about another 4-5 ppl waiting, I felt a littlerushed. I specifically told the assistant what I came in for but she kept pointing out something else. I told her 2x that I was already taking care of it and I was in for another reason. Doctor comes in and goes straight to discussing what I had mention was not the reason for my visit. She didn’t give me a chance explain any of my other concerns and kinda rushed thru the visit. I literally just paid for her to rush through my concerns focusing on something I’ve already mentioned was not the reason for my visit. For what it’s worth, she was on point about my other condition that I already knew about from my pcp.

Amazing! The whole experience went smoothly, I got there and had to wait a couple of minutes because I was early then once I was in the examination room, they wasted no time at all, I thought I was going inthere only for a consult but she also did the procedure which was excellent. The doctor and her assistant were very comforting during the procedure as well. Highly recommend!

When I went in the receptionists were very nice. I then sat in the waiting area for about 15 minutes and the assistant came & got me. It looks like they had a girl in training which I didnt mind. However,I told the assistant(s) all of my issues and then they left and said the doctor would be in shortly. After a few minutes I heard them telling the doctor a really fast run down of all of my issues and why I was there and the doctor responded with "ok." She then came in with the assistants and spoke to me briefly but not thoroughly and my prescriptions were sent to my pharmacy and I was on my way. I've got to say, it was quick but I didn't feel like she really took the time to hear me out plus having the assistants come in and out felt unnecessary. I rather a doctor that greets you and hears your issues than someone giving them a 15 second run down of the patients reason for being there. BUT.. I did get what I went there for which were my usual creams and overall everyone was pleasant.

This was my second time seeing a dermatologist, and first time here. Waited less than 15 minutes as there was only one other patient who came after me but went in first. Overall she was nice until I asked one toomany questions? Then she got snappy and rushed out. While I was anxious and extremely concerned about my condition, she seemed rushed and rushed out, even though there were no other patients it seemed. Also, her instructions on how to use the prescribed medication was unclear but at least she prescribed so I should be grateful.

She answered my questions, and helped me with what I needed. She had an undertone as if she felt like I didn’t understand what I was asking for, but beyond the minor condescension she was great. I did not appreciate theassistant (not sure what you call her) being in the room the entire time, however I guess she was needed by the doctor.

My first time experience at Dr. Chan's was beyond pleasant. I rushed in to her office, paranoid about a lesion that formed on my skin. The front desk ladies and her medical assistant were very friendly and helpful. Dr. Chan examinedme extremely thoroughly and assured me that it was nothing serious. I truly felt the warmth of her concern through her careful touch. She went further to conduct a skin biopsy to make sure that I was 100% fine. The procedure was quick and painless. She called back within a week to provide me a detailed explanation of the lesion and available treatments. She is the sweetest and most genuine care professional whom I've ever encountered thus far and I will return to her every time for my skin needs. Thank you Dr. Chan and staff, well done!

Dr. Chan did not rush through the visit, and took her time to address all concerns that were had. It was a great experience and i look forward to seeing her again!

She was thorough with examining my skin, explained everything before giving them to me,gave me step-by-step instructions (and even had them written) for the medications she prescribed. The office was very clean, calm, and quiet. Overall, I was happy with the appointment and I will continue to come to Dr. Chan for issues concerning my skin!
