What WE DID WELL

(Answers:674)

Friendly attentive staff and very nice ambience (love the art work!)

#12021-01-26

Linda was very thorough and took time with me rather than rush me like she couldn't wait to get to the next patient. I've had that experience before so I appreciated that.

#22011-06-02 14:59:00

the staff was extremely friendly, polite and worked well with my 6 year old

#32021-01-13

That was the most thorough appointment I have had in a very long time. I was given numerous options that were tailored for my skin needs.

#42011-12-06 10:16:06

I liked the computers.

#52021-05-16

The doctor was friendly and very thorogh -- I didn't feel rushed.

The entire staff was friendly, efficient and professional. Office and exam room were immaculate. Exam was thorough and complete. I have peace of mind that I have no problems at this time.

#72012-10-16 12:55:55

The friendliness of the staff; I felt like the doctor really cared and wasn't just rushing me through the appointment. I felt heard and seen and appreciated.

#82011-01-25 09:09:30

taken promptly for appointment

#92010-11-08 14:14:51

I appreciated that Dr. Ringpfeil took the time to thoroughly explain everything we spoke about. She did not simply provide a professional opinion, she provided her opinion and supplemented it with an explanation that made everything clear to me. I felt like I was listened to and interacted with, rather than just spoken at (which has often been my experience with other dermatologists). Thank you!

What can we do better?

(answers:373)

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.

#12021-09-17

Everything was great!

#22021-08-01

I really am not sure how you could improve. The visit was actually relaxing.

#32021-09-29

Everything was wonderful

#42021-06-18

Shorter wait, but not much else.

#52020-12-22

don't think you could!!

#62021-10-09

Everything was great thanks!

#72011-02-25 11:46:15

just continue listening which is so important

#82021-10-07

I had problems with my insurance. Since you took my insurance information over the phone it might have been nice to know that before I came in so I could have fixed it.

#92011-05-19 10:14:50

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