Five Stars

I had adult acne several years ago. It was devastating. I didn't have health insurance, and I owned a dayspa at the time! Dr. Kwon signed me up for the accutane testing they were doing at the time. It changed my life. I still had to pay cash for all my labs, but I would never have been able to afford the treatment without his help. It really did change my life. I never have to wear makeup now. (maybe I should, lol) but with clear skin, I never feel the need to hide my face. Since then my nephew and my daughter have both been patients at his office and had great results! I wouldn't recommend anyone else!

If you want a thorough exam don't come here

Strangest,most incomplete dermatology experience I ever had. He doesn't come near you to inspect your skin, doesn't turn on a lamp despite a floor lamp beside the exam table. You'd THINK he might want to have a real good look at your skin, but no. Claims the hand-held flashlight is enough, yet he only turns it on if he thinks he needs to yet , like I said, he starts off with just average room light and no exam light. I'm saying why not come closer and turn on the EXAM LAMP for a REAL GOOD INSPECTION. Instead he has a smarmy attitude about the idea going slower. I left not feeling as if I'd had a decent exam and I plan on seeing a new doctor. He even asked ME what was up with one of my moles....so why didn't he tell me we should biopsy it ? He asked ME why it was a certain color. Bedside manner is a complete joke, he's rude. I felt like a specimen instead of a patient, and a specimen he couldn't be bothered with. Spent most of the time about 5 feet away from me, and spends an average of only 10 minutes per patient. Will not biopsy anything the same day, {I know from asking, not because he mentioned a biopsy, yet with his lousy,too-quick "exam" how would he know if I needed a biopsy or not ???}. Is too blase' and thinks he can tell all about your moles even while standing away from you by several feet. I had to point out a few things on my face because he couldn't see them from where he stood !

Sign your rights away.... 7 pages of legal jargon , pricing what's that?

Too many disclaimers. 7 legal pages, you cannot post a review without giving the office intellectual property rights, copyrights, on written, pictorial and or electronic commentary. The office wants to charge you for missed appointments but you don't get to charge them for waiting, rescheduling. The office considers malpractice claims merit less and frivolous, wow that opinion tells me a lot about the doctor, legal staff and office procedures. When I asked the cost of the elective procedures I wanted the assistant did not know, just said they will bill my insurance company again I mentioned that everything I want is a elective and the insurance company will not pay. Business manager came in told me I HAD to sign off all all their paperwork which also includes telling you who to use as an expert witness if you do file a merit less and frivolous claim against Aura, Derma tology, Dr. Kwon. Too many Med Spas, many many other dermatologists. I left never to return.
