What WE DID WELL

(Answers:674)

The doctor was very thorough and pleasant. Having Melissa take notes was an excellent strategy for covering so much information in a short amount of time.

I followed the Dr. from Jefferson - Philadelphia. Dr. Ringpfeil is the best dermatologist I have had... and as a psoriasis patient I have had a few of them. For the first time, my skin reacts to treatment. Thank you!

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

When making the initial appointment and then calling to try to get it moved up (our of fear that I had a melanoma), I didn't think that one of the booking person(s) was particularly helpful or reassuring.

#52019-02-09

Improve the movement of the mouse on its pad.

#62019-07-22

I do not like waiting long periods of time in either the reception area or exam room fort he Dr to come in. The exam with the Dr should be relatively close to the appointment time

#72019-06-06
