Ratings for Dr. Michael Duong
À déconseiller fortement, ne prend pas le temps de vous expliquer votre problème, perd patience facilement, ne vous précise même pas la durée des effets de votre prescription, même la nature du problème dans mon cas ne m'a jamais été révélée. Il y en a d'autres sur le marché qu'on peut consulter et non déranger, ne perdez pas votre temps avec Duong.
De loin le pire dermatologue que j'ai consulté. Je lui expliquais mes problèmes de rougeurs sur la peau et il s'est énervé quand je lui ai dis que j'en avais durant des coups de chaleur comme l'été dans le métro. Il ne m'a jamais dit de quoi il s'agissait, juste la prescription et la dose quotidienne à prendre. Si vous voulez un dermatologue patient qui prend le temps de vous expliquer votre problème et qui ne vous traite pas comme un numéro, n'allez surtout pas chez Duong.
C'est le pire dermatologue que j'ai consulté. Ne me dit pas bonjour. Prend le moins de temps possible. On se sent comme un numéro et non pas comme un être humain. La seule chose qui l'intéresse c'est son propre bien-être et faire de l'argent . Quel gaspillage de temps. Lors d'un rendez-vous, une de ses patientes l'a insulté et même craché par mépris.
A bad experience altogether. I was rushed in and out twice. The first time was an unpleasant experience with the rude receptionist. I was charged for the procedure itself plus $60 for the anesthetic - a single injection. I was sent out to a bank machine to get it in cash. They have an assembly line going and I was left with a bad taste in my mouth. The final shock was getting a prescription for polysporin! It's just another few bucks they can charge Medicare for. I would refuse to go back to this guy if I had to see another dermatologist.
I cannot say whether or not this doctor is knowledgeable but I think that any doctor must spend time with a patient to really understand the situation and time is what this dr won't give. He is rude and tries to kick you out of the office as soon as possible. I spent less than 5 minutes with him for 2 major problems and he barely looked at them. When I insisted on talking to him, he got very annoyed and then I got mad and took even more time trying to talk to him but it was like pulling teeth. He doesn't seem to realize that we patients are paying his salary and that were we to decide, he would be fired! Even the dr who sent me to him warned me that he wasn't very "sociable" but since it was an emergency he preferred I see him than nobody. Why do we have to keep doctors like this in our system? Oh and his secretary follows in his footsteps with a rude and abrupt manner.
Lousy doctor. Was sent for special moles. Removed other things but not the mole my g.p. wanted removed!!! After waiting for 1 hour. Seems want only your money, CASH SVP, no other form of payment is accepted. And while I waited, previous patient, went back to tell him that he had NOT taken out the mole that her doctor wanted removed. Told her to come back a second time and bring cash. So 2 visits, $$$$. He found the cash cow and is milking it for all it is worth. Also very anti social. Was upset by my questions and reluctant to answer. I had to insist. Stopped short of telling to get lost. Also barely understandable (mumble) and need French lessons. I need another dermato for future care. Will NOT go back to him for any reason.
Wow! I think this doctor has major issues. After spending 1 minute and a half in his office he was ready to operate me right away without even looking at my skin or letting me speak a single word about my problem...scary...very scary. Maybe he is good for emergencies (from what I read from the previous ratings) but for prevention or help, I'm afraid he deserves a big zero.
