Great drs, and very good checkin and checkout experience
Dr Oro is so sweet and caring. He’s helped me so much. I’m grateful to him!
Dr. Oro is kind, patient and very helpful.
Dr. Oro is a superb physician. As an MD I am well qualified to judge this.
As I said before, both doctors were wonderful.
I was given a prescription that have a bold warning on it that says it is not to be given to women.!
Knowledgeable, caring, friendly, confident.
Excellent experience.
Dr. Oro is excellent! I really appreciate the time he takes to address my concerns and questions along with the information he provides.
Excellent experience - "listening" doctors. Explained things in an understandable way.
I received excellent attention and care form Drs. A Chiang & Dr. A Oro.
I want to recognize the excellent and caring treatment provided by the resident during the biopsy procedure. Her technique and finesse during the procedure was the best I've ever received, and I've had this procedure too many times. Bravo!
Dr. Tu and Dr. Oro were very pleasant, caring and knowledgeable. It was a great experience meeting and understanding my health concern from both doctors.
Really felt support by provider as well as the wonderful residence provider.
Very friendly, could explain most of my problems & provided a potential solution to my problems.
Dr. Oro is a kind, compassionate, extremely knowledgeable and smart doctor. I consider myself very lucky to be under his care.
I was very happy to have finally seen Dr. Oro and got good advice and care -
Would recommend except for difficulty of getting an appt.
I felt that I learned a lot about my condition and was given some good advice.
Dr ORO is excellent, on time and very patient
Dr. Oro is the best doctor I have ever been to.
Dr Oro is friendly, engaging and knowledgeable.
I give Dr. Oro himself high marks. He's very personable and I didn't realize how scalp dermatology works. Systems of the body don't all work in the same way. I especially liked that he prescribed several things this second appointment including an antibiotic for the scalp to be sure no "bad germs" (my words) aren't addressed. So now I have the full arsenal! I'm still slightly skeptical of a full "cure" but time will tell.
very friendly and open. able to ask all questions. skin check too quick but resident was thorough
Exceptionally clear explanations.
Impersonal, few questions asked about history of problem discussion regarding care or treatment was non existent, seemed hurried and not involved or caring, at all.
I was seen by two doctors, and they were both excellent!
Doctor and resident doctor seemed very good. I am hard of hearing, however, and while resident adjusted her speaking so I could understand her well, doctor had a hard time doing that, speaking exceedingly fast at times.
Dr. Oro is wonderful.
excellent explanations, recommendations and speaking to me as medically informed consumer (physician)--appropriate level of discussion/recommendations (not too basic or too advanced).
Dr. Oro is the most fun doctor!!
I would have liked Dr. Oro to sit across from me instead of by my side. It's easier for conversation & I would have remembered questions I forgot.
Dr. Oro was great! I appreciated his calming demeanor, and his patience with my chief complaint, very friendly & immediately gained my trust.
I waited 5 months to see Dr. Oro! He was horrible, didn't talk to me, check my labs, or examine me. Had his 2nd year resident do everything including the biopsy. Didn't answer any questions. Didn't answer my phone calls or emails. Never follow up with me post biopsy. He is an awful doctor!
Thanks for answering my questions on the app! I sent photos and you confirmed which products were good and bad.
Dr. Oro has been my family care provider for many years. He is very competent and attentive to our needs. We have a very high regard for him!

Dr. Oro is an excellent MD.
Typically, very happy with Dr. Oro. on this particular day, he was rushing very behind (no problem) but it was the end of the day and I wasn't given a full, thorough skin check like in the past - concerning.
