In this Dermatology Department & Laboratory they are very kind & attentive with the patient they make you feel confident & if there is a wait or delay they let you know so there is no restlessness.
Dr. Marinkovich took time explaining to me my mother's conditions, potential treatment options, and testing that need to be done define her issues. He even gave me his mobile phone number and email in case I need to contact him. I am 62 years old and have seen many doctors and this is the first time I experienced this personal gesture. Dr. Leon Hsu also demonstrated his concerns for my mother.
Dr. Marinkovich is fantastic. Dr. Chiou was excellent as well. I'm reassured that I am in such good hands.
