I visited Dr Chiang recently for hair loss concerns and was quite worried as I'm only 21. Dr Chiang listened to all I had to say and reassured me that this is actually common. She was very warm and open towards me and took time to understand how this was affecting me personally. She talked in detail about possible treatments and discussed what she thought best. Dr Chiang followed up with me, asking how treatment is going. I recently went back for a follow up appointment very happy with progress and results from the treatment and left with further encouragement to keep up the treatment. I felt I could trust Dr Chiang from the very beginning and would definitely recommend.
I have seen Doctor Chiang an 2 different hospitals now was so please to have her at the second hospital, she has been the only doctor I feel that has actually listened to me an how I feel. I feel she actually listens to you an your needs and advises you on that too. By far the best specialist I have seen for the past two years. Thank you so much!
I saw Dr Chiang in December following concerns raised by my gp on a suspicious mole. I had a shave biopsy the following week and this was sent for testing. The results came back normal and as it was close to Christmas, Dr Chiang ensured I was given the results over the phone so I was not worrying over the Christmas holidays. My first impressions - she is a very caring lady, does not rush you, She is softly spoken and listens to you. There was no pain during the procedure (the mole was under the eye, next to the nose and it is bony in that area, so I expected the local anaesthetic injection to be uncomfortable, but this was fine ). Dr Chiang also did a thorough check to make sure there was no other suspicious lesions on my body. I would not hesitate in recommending anyone to see her - she is extremely professional and I am extremely happy with the outcome.
Very good service, listened well to my problem and made a wealth of recommendations on how to resolve it. Very friendly and professional, I would certainly recommend Dr Chiang to anyone with skin related problems, for expert advice.
I had several hypertrophic scars across my back because of chicken pox from a young age. These scars had a huge impact on my confidence and I finally mustered the courage to see a DR and was surprised at how comfortable she made me feel immediately. I had injections and also used a cream for the pigment of the scars as they were obviously darker than my skin colour. This treatment worked wonders and i am very happy with the way my scars have flattened out and have blended in with the rest of my skin. Dr Nicole is the most pleasant doctor i have come across. She was reassuring and polite and Listened to my concerns. She advised me about the best treatment and talked me through it step by step ensuring that i understood everything. I am very happy to have been seen by Dr Nicole as she exceeded my expectations. I cannot express enough how pleased I am with my results and the proffesionalism and genuine care i recieved from Dr Nicole.
