It seemed as if she just wanted to have my appointment over with. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure she knows her information about acne and different treatments, however, she did not bother to listen to my history with my skin and rushed to diagnose me. Dr. Wong continued to tell me that the reason a certain gel didn't work, was because I PROBABLY USED IT WRONG. Dr. Wong's assumptions made me very frustrated and makes me want to find a different dermatologist and I definitely would not recommend her. Additionally, after being requested to bring in the products I have tried, she did not take one look at them when I insisted to show her. Although I have not tried the medication yet, and even if it works, I will hesitate to go back as being in her office dampens my mood greatly.||Respond|

It was the first test she did. Staff is very helpful in rearranging appointments. She speaks cantonese and english, not sure if that is helpful for anyone to know. She listens to all my quesitons and takes time to explain what it means, and would make further referral if required. I highly recommend her.||Respond|
