Testimonials

  • I've been a patient at SB for a long time. My appointments have all been on-time, with friendly office staff and physician assistants. I've never posted a review for them, and am very surprised to see some of the one-stars. I think it may be just a few of the thousands of patients they've seen that were unhappy, and of course those are the ones that speak up. So I'm here to say the Center is top-notch with attentive and caring office staff. I've only seen two of the doctors over the years, and they are both professional and highly reputable. Today, I brought a book to read (I mean, it's a doctor's office, right?!) and didn't even have a chance to sit down and read it before being called in. Dr. Bell came in within 2 minutes of being in the exam room. Highly recommended.

  • When I received the request from the office to provide feedback, I expected to see a five-star rankings. I'm completely shocked.

    I have been a patient of Dr. Tang's for ten plus years. I have never experienced any of the rudeness so many of these reviews describe. I've never had trouble getting an appointment. As a matter of fact, last Thursday I called at 11:08 am and Dr. Tang saw me at 6:15 pm that same day. The most I've ever waited, once arrived, was twenty minutes. Dr. Tang does take her time with each patient and I appreciate that. You can feel Dr. Tang's passion for what she does. She has recommended products and I have yet to be disappointed with the results. The Collagen powder has been a life-changer for me. I'm 59 years old and people think I'm in my forties, thanks to Dr. Tang

    I recommend Dr. Tang all the time and no one has had anything negative to say about their experience. I hope that more of Saddleback Dermatology's long-standing clientele will post reviews.

  • I have had skin checkups with Dr. Benik and Dr. Troung, the Hydrafacial and a cosmetic consultation with Tiffany, revitapen facials with Tracy, and Dysport with Dr. Benik. All four individuals went out of their way to assist me with the best, most professional, and personalized customer service. I have always left confident they are looking out for my best interests and needs as a patient. I have also purchased the products and saw fabulous results.

  • Tracy, their Medical Aesthetician is fantastic, I just had one of their new facials which involved using a special tool to nourish your skin way below the surface which continues to work for over a month. I am so happy with the results! Having seen Tracy many times before, I am always impressed by her professionalism and insight. I highly recommend Tracy and all the staff at Saddleback Dermatology.
