I would like you to offer evening and/or Saturday hours for both dermatology and esthetician appointments.

#12010-11-04 16:32:44

Cannot think of anyway to improve things, unless you want to serve hot tea and cappachino!

#22011-02-22 11:25:39

You guys did great. This was a great experience for me

#32010-09-22 12:31:41

I had an appointment for a consulation for sun damage. Unfortunately, I need to see either a doctor or PA for my issue and this was not included in my appointment, so I need to make another trip. It is difficult for me to carve time out of my work day to take care of personal needs, so this is creating an inconvenience for me. I would have preferred to had the complete consultation done in one appointment.

#42011-02-14 14:14:53

don't change a thing, you guys are the best! Please send me Real Estate Referrals, thanks
