sometimes I feel the phone staff is not as helpful as it could be, but that is not reflected in the quality of services. Front office is very professional overall.

The music in the waiting area could be a bit softer.

#72021-02-21

No room for improvement

#82021-02-05

When making a first appointment ask who ther person would like to see. Doctor vs Aesthetician

#92020-12-11

Complain to the insurance industry that they cove too little, complain to the product manufactures that they truely charge too much for the products. I feel that the industry in general is very slow to treat because of insurance allowances. Patients have busy work schedules and pay for monthly coverage that covers too little. In one hour or less could do what multiple appointments do to remove or treat small skin defects require many visits. Should provide payment better incentives.
