This was my first visit with Dr Nwe and he was amazing. He listened to my concerns, explained what he was doing, possible concerns and post care follow up very clearly - he stayed calm and was very sweet with my two children fighting in the room! I had such a great experience I literally recommended him to a friend later that day.

I have recommended Dr. Nwe to many people. He is a great doctor. He really cares about making my psoriasis better and talked me through the options. He wanted to make sure I knew he was there to help and didn't judge me at all. I really love talking to him about topics that don't include skincare as well. He's a very easy and fun person to talk to and I'm always in a great mood when I leave.

Absolutely incredible. He explained all the possibilities and what led to the decision of what to do as well as what to look for if anything changes. Answered a lot of questions and talked through things really nicely. Also made funny jokes that made the experience really pleasant. I've been to dermatologists before but never someone who was willing to sit down and explain things with care in this way. Recommending to primary care dr to send people to.

one of the best doctors I've even been to. extremely kind, patient, thorough, and took tons of extra rims to explain things and ease my worries. he called me on the phone with my results and asked how I was doing - amazing and unheard of. he should be a model for others. I've already recommended him to friends.
