Besides being a very competent dermatologist, as a mother of a teenage son with cystic acne,I was impressed with how understanding of my teenage son's skin condition Dr Jana was and how he gave my son the confidence and constant reassurance throughout the treatment. My son has total confidence in Dr Jana!
