Every appointment I have had to wait for 20-30 minutes even though there are no patients there. I have had to listen to the Dr talk down to her staff, and have been spoken to in a rude manner. My time is as valuable as hers!!

Dr Van uses an amazing scope and spotted a mole on my face that was a stage 0 melanoma. She also credited her friend at UCSF for the Pathology reading. I am grateful to these dedicated Doctors!

UNFORTUNATELY FEEL THE SAME AS "TERRIBLE" REPORTED

I only went to Dr. Vans office twice. Once for five minutes, in which Dr. Van used her phone camera on spot on my leg. Then I was told to come back for biopsy. Dr. Van commented and spent more time discussing how wonderful my insurance was then she did the reason I scheduled. Second visit, still no biopsy, instead "milk" the insurance again. Yes, "Terrible", I too listened to Dr. Van commenting about the patient before me. Loudly joking about him after the Family left her office? It was clear to me that the receptionist and I were getting uncomfortable.
