What WE DID WELL

(Answers:674)

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.

the Dr

#22021-02-05

The doctor saw me exactly when i was scheduled.

#32021-10-01

The decor was really nice. It is a very warm and welcoming office. Not intimidating or over the top either. Nice in-between.

#42010-11-29 13:43:41

The med assistant and the doctor were very pleasant and I feel like I can leave knowing that I am ok and had an excellent exam

#52021-11-09

I was particularly impressed with the doctor and her exam...more thorough than I had previously experienced elsewhere.

#62021-06-08

I called 6 different Dermatology offices (including 2 I had been to previously), and none were willing to fit me is as you were. Thank you for your compassion!

#72021-05-26

friendly, laid-back style yet factual and to-the-point feedback

#82021-07-25

This is one of the best medical offices that I have visited. I see doctors in the Penn and Bryn Mawr systems and this is by far much better than any of those offices. The entire staff is friendly and accommodating. Both doctors are awesome! I have recommended you to family and friends. Keep up the great work!

#92012-12-03 17:05:27

#32010-11-03 15:36:43

tell the Dr. to stop snowboarding and come back to skiing..;-)

#42011-12-07 10:55:46

Parking was a little tight.

#52011-06-09 15:52:46

More chairs in the waiting room. More parking spaces.

#62010-09-15 12:08:01
