Written by Dr. Ringpfeil

Post treatment instructions:

Avoidance of aspirin or ibuprofen for 3 days.

Time to desired results:

3-6 months.

Duration of desired effects:

Permanent. A second treatment may be added 3 months after the initial injection.

Contraindications:

Dr made eye contact and listened to my concerns....

#62024-04-09

THE MUSIC! WOW. IT REALLY WAS AMAZING. PLEASE DO A BEST OF CD.

#72023-09-28

They were the first attentive people in the medical field I've encountered in a while. Quick and EFFICIENT visit- I appreciated everything!!!!!

#82023-08-16

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.

#92023-11-19

Liked the all the friendliness of the doctor's assistants and the doctor as well. also loved the brightness and colors of the waiting room.

What can we do better?

(answers:373)

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.

#12010-11-10 12:28:11

There was some wait between my initial interview with the medical assistantand my meeting the physician. This wait could have been shorter.

#22023-08-14

I recommended this practice to a family member but they showed up 15 mins late to their first appt. due to traffic and were turned away (after traveling over an hour to get here). I would suggest on the first visit to allow more leeway for late appointments (try to fit them in) and then explain the late policy for all appointments moving forward.

#32011-09-21 14:47:49

Be on time for our appointments

#42011-11-16 13:56:14

So far so good!

#52011-01-04 10:23:13

I thought that consideration could have been made re: pricing of skin tag removal since I only had one tag removed.

#62024-03-12
