She was quick straight to the point and prescribed me medicine and one of them would be expensive so she told me to tell the Pharmacy that if my health insurance doesn’t cover it, to give the doctor a call andshe would do whatever the instructions are to get the insurance to cover it. She knows her stuff!

First time patient for annual screening. Office was a convenient and within walking distance. This was a good thing since Flushing Main Street is a highly congested area. Office staff was efficient and orderly. Wait time was the only issue asmy appointment took over 1 hour to be seen by Dr. Zhou. However, my screening process was efficient and succinct and Dr. Zhou was courteous and considerate. I was done in under 15 minutes. Look forward to a repeat screening in a years time.

i really enjoyed Dr. Zhou's approach. I'd been to a previous dermatologist who basically couldn't wait to get people out of her office. Dr. Zhou was helpful, answered all my questions, and was incredibly professional. She prescribed me medicationfor a nail fungus which my other doctor just told me to put vinegar on, and she sent nail clippings to go for testing. It seems like she really cares about her profession and I would recommend her 100%!

I had itchy rashes on my body clustered together. I was extremely alarmed and this doctor assured me I had bed bugs. I left the office frazzled and immediately broke down andhired an exterminator team to assess the issue in myhome. They could not find any bed bug existence in my home.

Suggestion: I would make an appointment to see Dr. Wenhong Zhou. I got to see her exactly on time. I’m also a new patient so I came fifteen minutes earlier to fill out the paperwork. According to the sign in sheet,there seemed to be a lot of walk-in patients. I would have to say that Dr.Wenhong Zhou was very informative and asked a lot of questions of the symptoms I’ve been experiencing. We took a total of twenty minutes talking and she did not seem to be in a rush to chase me out like most doctors do. In my opinion, I value her as a good doctor who is informative and gets her job done.

My visit with Dr. Wenhong Zhou was great! Right after I signed in and waited for a couple of minutes, they called me right away. I was suffering from acne on my face as well as my body and Dr. Wenhongfully diagnosed me with medication which helped clear my skin in a couple of weeks. I definitely see a difference from the first visit to now. She is great, helpful and also very kind! I definitely recommend her.

I think Dr. Wenhong is very personable, professional and truly shows concern for my well being. I like that she said wait till the results come back and then we will see what the next will be. She did not saytry something and we will see how it goes. I like that she was informative through the biopsy procedure quick and easy. I would highly recommend.

It was my first time seeing Dr. Zhou and I was pleased with my visit. There wasn't much of a wait (I arrived early for my appointment.) Although, I felt that my time with the doctor was a bit rushed, she was very knowledgeable and answered my questions.

She was great! Knowledgeable and caring. The receptionist was a bit harder to understand but very nice. The system said they didn’t accept my insurance but when I called they did. I tried to make appt over phone but was toldthey were booked all date but zocdoc had several openings and when I got there, there was no wait...wonder why they would turn away business. Glad I still went the doctor was very good.

This is a nice clean office and i was seen right away; I saw both Dr. Zhou and her PA but to be honest if you could, i recommend seeing her PA instead. She is more personable and takes time to listen to your concerns unlike Dr. Zhou.

The doctor is great. She listened to all my concerns and comments and addressed them. The biggest issue of mine is that both my appointments were at a specific time. I showed up to my appointments 20 minutes early. There werepatients who showed up way after me and had later appointments and got seen first. The patient treatment is extremely unfair. Will not be going back.

The doctor was very kind and knowledgeable. She listened to my background about my cyst and also gave me options that other dermatologists did not. The process did not seem like a transactions. The doctor gave me options for other specialiststo minimize scarring for my condition. I felt pleased with the options I was given for my condition. I look forward to a follow up to remove the cyst.

This review is for a visit i had a bit over a year ago. I originally made an appointment a week or so ahead of time and on my way over literally 15min before my appointment time it takes me roughlyan hour by railroad to get here they cancelled my appointment. So when i arrived at the office they claimed i didnt have an appointment i then checked my phone and it said "cancelled by office". They said their internal system did not synchronize with zocdoc and someone else was booked already. So this was my second attempt to meet with the doctor i waited 45min to see her i understand chinese and overheard them squeezing a patient in before me with no appointment time this is probably what happened to my first visit. Never again will i return. There was no apology zoc doc however apologized for my visit which i really appreciated.

She was so professional, warm and friendly, clearly trained to make you open up about your problems! All though I needed an allergist and not a dermatologist, she didn't rush me out, took the time to hear out my issues andreferred me to her colleague. When I told her that I was worried about my appearance right after pregnancy and wanted to do something about the discoloration in my face, she took the time to ask if I was breastfeeding and then told me it wasn't the right time, I was so touched because most people would book you an appointment for anything they sold right there! So that should give you an idea about what kind of doctor she is. I am making another appointment but this time for dermatological needs ?? I wish more doctors were this warm and caring Truly a GEM!!
