I'm not even sure where to begin... My old Derma left the practice and Dr. Zhang took over.

I have probably spent less than 10 minutes with her in the 2 appointments I've had. She comes in, renews my scripts (meds orig prescribed by the first derma I saw), leaves all my questions unanswered, sits over 5 ft from me & does not even look at my skin, then leaves 5 minutes later. I only have acne... I can't imagine seeing her for a more serious condition.
Last appt was the last straw. I will never go back!
Not only did she not know what medications I was using (listed IN MY FILE) she had never even heard of the one Rx (a med she had even renewed for me once!)... she had to look it up on her Blackberry in the middle of my appt!

If I hadn't know the active ingredients in my one Rx (specifically an antibiotic & retinoid) she would have prescribed me 2 new meds that contained the same ingredients and were CONTRAINDICATED for use with my current meds. Totally DANGEROUS!

Then, she proceeded to tell me to try oral BC & mentioned a specific brand. I've tried over 4 different types of hormonal BC, all of which either did not improve or worsened my acne (also IN MY FILE). I was even taking the brand she named at the time of my last visit (front page IN MY FILE)... DID SHE NOT EVEN BOTHER TO LOOK AT MY RECORDS?!

This was some of the most haphazard and incompetent care I've ever received. In fact, it was dangerous! I'm completely disgusted. Never again will I step foot in that practice!
