Bravo!! I am very impressed with the doctor, staff, facility, everything right down to the current magazines available in the reception room(that I didn't even get to read!). I can highly recommend you with trust and confidence.

I was very pleased with the service that was provided during my visit. No waiting, excellent service, thorough exam. Overall, it was a pleasure - not usually the case with most doctor's visits these days!

I was given sufficient time with the doctor and her assistant to ask questions and explain my skin history.

Doctor is extremely efficient and knowledgeable, and even discussed treatment for another condition -- my oral canker sores -- which nobody had ever mentioned previously. Also, the office is really lovely with nice music, rather than pical office music.
