Wrong Diagnosis

While being seen by Dr. Lau for years, I developed a skin growth that was discounted by him as benign. Dr. Lau told me “it’s too slow growing to be cancer so don’t worry.” Eventually I was advised by another doctor to have the growth removed ASAP because it looked very suspicious. The growth was cancerous and because it grew for so long, it required significant radiation in addition to surgery. The radiation has caused me many health problems all because of Dr. Lau’s wrong diagnosis. After surgery, I tried to make an appointment with Dr. Lau because I wanted him on my growing “cancer team” of doctors, but he told me (through his assistant) he didn’t want to see me at that time and wanted me to make an appointment in 6-8 weeks. Needless to say, today I see another dermatologist who actually knows what cancerous growths look like.

Five Stars

Dr. Lau has been a great dermatologist in treating my eczema. He has been patient with trying different medications, including suggestions on dietary changes to help minimize my eczema outbreaks. His staff is courteous, and when I have had questions or concerns, his staff, nurse or Dr. Lau have always returned my calls promptly-always by the end of the business day that I have called.I was highly recommend to Dr. Lau by my aesthetician, and I highly recommend him to anyone.
