SHC Patient, Jun 2019

Dr. Chiou is such a great provider. I sent in pictures of my concerning rash and the next day I had a same day appointment. That is awesome! He is so nice and a great listener.

SHC Patient, May 2019

Although my appointment was to check on a suspicious spot, the provider mentioned that I was due for a full body skin check. When I said Ijust hadn't gotten around to it, he said why not do it now, so that I didn't need to make another appointment. I was very pleased with this suggestion.
