My family and I have going to Dr. Ha for years, but no longer use him after he treated me extremely rude. For a year he tried to treat my son's acne with both oral antibiotics and topical creams with no success. It actually got extremely worse under his treatment. After only 2 months of treatment he was also pushing Accutane which I told him we would never use. After about a year he threw his hands up and said if this doens't work that you are going to have to use Accutane, so my husband and I looked to natural methods to cure it. Through research, we learned that if our son soaked in baths with salt from the Dead Sea that his acne would go away. We did this for 3 months and did continue the topical medicine. I took pictures each month of his transformation. When my son went back for a scheduled follow up, Dr. Ha looked at his face and back and was very pleased with the results. HIs acne had disappeared. He said, Finally, something is working. " That's when I explained to him what we had been doing and showed him the photos. He went back to look at my son and then came back over to me and told me how I was wasting money using the dead sea salts. There has been extensive research done that shows that when people go to the Dead Sea Spas that it is not the salt that improves the patient, but the UV rays. I then asked him to please explain to me how why this worked when my son never had his shirt off since he had been doing the treatment from Sept. November. He had no answer. He them dismissed me by saying , "Well, Dr. Mom, I guess you don't need to see me any more." I was taken aback by his rudeness. He did call later that night to apologize, but the damage was done. This isn't the first time that he has dismissed a condition. My eyebrows are thinning. Dr. Ha prescribed Latisse. After the prescribed months of using it, there was no improvement. He threw his hands up in the air and said there was nothing else to be done. HIs need to only use certain medications and actually push them instead of looking at other forms of treatment is scary.
A small spot was found on my forehead the size of a pin head. Came back as suspicious and took me 3 weeks to get an appointment for a follow up. I arrived to find out that I had been scheduled for some kind of surgery. I had been monitoring the spot closely and nothing had appeared. I told Dr. Ha I wanted to watch the spot closely (which I couldn't even see) before I went under the knife. He got very upset with me and told me to see a plastic surgeon if I didn't trust his work. I was taken back because I never questioned his surgery but felt as a patient I should have the right to say lets wait. Then he started throwing words like Melanoma around and got angry with me. Wouldn't help by answering questions instead was very resentful that I wouldn't agree to the surgery. This was 9 years ago and the spot has never reoccurred. The other reviewer said it perfectly - he is very condescending if you question or don't agree. I've never been back.
