#22023-10-03

I enjoyed being seen in a timely fashion...Left my last dermatologist because of hours long wait times. Thank you for valuing my time.

#32023-11-08

love the new office!!!!

#42024-04-08

I liked how she listened to my issues and is addressing them aggressively. I've seen too many Dermatologists who don't seem to know how to go about treating me.

#52024-02-08

I liked the fact that I could enter my information on a computer and I was not asked to provide the same more than once on the informational forms!

#62023-08-13

I LOVE the art work!

#72010-12-13 11:51:50

The aesthetician was great, very straight forward and running on time!

#22024-03-16

Service was extremely good.

#32011-01-27 16:47:12

Everything was great! The only thing I would say is when I called to make an appointment for sun spot treatment to let me know that I should limit my sun exposure and wear sunblock.

#42011-05-05 13:30:08

I had requested an email for appointment purposes. Was never sent. Other than that - Excellent!

#52024-03-11

maybe offering a bit more evaluation of options -that I haven't already thought of or asked about- for skin care and amelioration, as I am not certain what exists

#62024-03-19

I am new here, so I don't have any suggestions at this time

#72024-04-19

A little warmer temperature.

#82010-09-09 16:03:32

Cookies and Milk! Seriously, I love coming in and being seen promptly. More importantly, I like the fact that the doctor was not distracted and there was not a single interruption.

#92023-09-23

Keep up the good work!
