What WE DID WELL

(Answers:674)

everything was wonderful.

Dr. Ringpfeil is wonderful. I must say i've visited various dermatologist in the past and this is the first doctor that has touched my face. Very important to me so that was big believe it or not. Also very easy to talk to and you dont feel rushed.She explains well. i'm very satisfied with my visit.

#22018-06-10

I really liked that I felt as though I was in a warm and friendly environment vs the sterile and cold feel many other physicians offices maintain. I also thought the tablet P.C. was very cool!

#32018-11-28

What can we do better?

(answers:373)

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.

Information for patients to take on latest findings/research in the field

#22018-04-10

Nothing missing.

#32018-07-25

I was feeling a bit thirsty the whole stay in the office, maybe making some water available during waiting time would make the stay more comfortable.

#42018-03-28

Just continue your good work to keep your credibility in place.

#52010-10-12 10:33:59

#62010-09-09 10:34:11

It would be helpful to have some later evening hours, but the early morning hours work for me too!

#72018-08-24

Everything was delightfully pleasant and comforting.

#82011-03-28 09:42:42

I think I was served most excellently. I cannot thing of anything to add.

#92018-02-18

There is a problem with availability of parking during busy week days.
