Would definitely recommend! I hadn’t seen a dermatologist in a long time, and Dr.Kwan was great with my needs. I waited less than five minutes, and everyone was very nice.

He comes highly recommended but did not listen to what I was saying about my skin and its reactions to certain products and insisted that I try an Obagi product that contained retin a which is awful on my skin. I did not feel like he was listening to my concerns.

He was very straightforward about how long the treatments would take to affect my skin. As a 24 year-old, I had acne for the first time in my life due to a change in birth control, and it was horrible. It took some patience, but Dr. Kwan found the right combination of treatments to clear my skin up and it's looking great!

I felt that Dr. Kwan didn't look at my skin. He had a plan of what he wanted to do before even seeing me. I felt that the plan was probably the same plan that he gives to everyone else with my condition and was not personally tailored to my health goals or needs.

Dr Kwan helps me to not rush and jump to laser treatment ~ instead we have an agreement on follow his prescription and routines to tackle with my current active and scar issue. He is very friendly and I feel comfortable and reilable of how efficient and knowledgable their nurse and aesthetician. I would like to follow what they have been told so and hope to change the texture of my skin to more healthy looking:)

Dr. Kwan is very pleasant and professional. Unlike a lot of physicians these days, he actually took the time to listen to my concern and thoroughly address it. The office and other medical staff was also very nice and provided detailed information about treatment options and the processes. And being brought in to the exam room right on time was a bonus. Great first experience with this office.

Dr. Kwan is extremely professional and knowledgeable and was able to go through my skin screening very quickly without it feeling at all rushed or impersonal. I had one area that he wanted to check out (very simple procedure) and he offered the option of taking care of it within the appointment or rescheduling. Since Dr. Kwan is booked about a month out, I opted for having the procedure done immediately. It was quick, relatively painless, and I felt relieved. The nurses and receptionist were also extremely personable and made me feel at ease even though this was my first appointment with a dermatologist. I highly recommend Dr. Kwan if you're looking for a dermatologist in San Francisco.

The spa atmosphere is not my cup of tea but it was an efficient, on time visit and the doc had time to discuss issues. He was very clear, and on point, only possible concern is that he focused on the areas I brought up to his attention but didn't do a full check-up himself possibly discovering things I'm not aware of.

Dr. Kwan was fantastic! He was super warm and communicative, and he even found a way to bill my insurance to zap a few veins off my nose. Will absolutely be going back the next time I need a dermatologist.

I had a very good appointment with Dr. Kwan. He was very thorough and straight and to the point, but also listened to all I had to say, had a good bedside manner, and makes himself available for any further questions and issues. I had no wait in the waiting room either, and the rest of the staff I interacted with was also pleasant. I would definitely recommend Dr. Kwan for those looking for a Dermatologist.
