I went to see Dr. Stephanie Chun for my annual exam- it was an okay experience.
She wasn’t very friendly, but did what she was supposed to.
Although I did notice that her office took much less history than my previous one had.
She wasn’t very interested in answering questions, that was for sure.
A few months later, I experienced a problem of sorts– I’ll spare you the details.
After a very brief exam she told me that she thought I had an STI or a yeast infection (despite the fact that the first would be pretty nearly impossible) and prescribed 2 creams.
She was very cold in telling me this despite the fact that I was in tears and shaking.
Two weeks later she told me that the cultures she took were negative (good news!), but she was still waiting for my bloodwork.
Well, she hadn’t ordered bloodwork for me, so I never got it done.
Another two weeks post getting bloodwork done and that comes back negative.
Dr. Chun was on vacation and when I asked what I was supposed to do then- having no idea what could’ve been wrong- I was told to use neosporin.
Finally, tired of paying out of pocket for all this nonsense, I went to City Clinic, where I was informed that there was no way I had anything close to an STI and probably it was more a skin thing that I could treat relatively easily but that since it had gone on so long I probably would have to deal with it pretty much forever.
Oh, and also that I was clearly allergic to neosporin. Thanks Dr. Chun- not only did I waste a lot of money and develop an allergy to neosporin, but I also started breaking out with these awful, painful cysts as a result of the stress from all this.
I strongly warn against seeing Dr. Chun- she doesn’t take time for her patients and doesn’t seem to care too much.
Also, I don’t put too much faith in a doctor who can’t tell excema/dry skin from an STI (even I was able to determine that it was an unlikely diagnosis based on medical texts).
