Drs. and staff are quite good. I like Dr. Lu and his resident was also good. Caveat: while I know it is difficult to social distance during a dermatological examination, I was uncomfortable with what I thought was an unnecessary degree of face-to-face closeness during times when we were simply talking to each other. Also, I don't like going to the clinic, which looks a bit shabby and, despite placing of chairs in the waiting area at appropriate distances, the place still feels crowded. Just too many people in too small a space, crowded elevators, etc.
