Review of Dr. Jacob

- in San Diego |

Dr. Jacob saw my son for a skin rash. He appeared very knowledgeable however was somewhat insensitive. After applying a topical medication, my son cried complaining of a burning sensation at the site. Dr. Jacob stated curtly there is no burning from this medication. My son complained again this am regarding this. After some reading about this particular medication, skin irritation including burning (not just itching) is listed as a side effect. I would recommend him for adults not children.

Very knowledgable, kind, and up-front. He spotted an issue when others hadn't.

Review of Dr. Jacob

-San Diego, CA |

Condescending doctor that does not explain anything. He is very quick to needlessly assign numerous medications, and when I asked whether there were any homeopathic methods I could try as I’m sensitive to medications, he snapped back “are you the doctor here?” He has zero empathy or regard for his patients or their well being, and is very robotic with his work. I’m baffled Scripps would hire someone so arrogant and insensitive.

Review of Dr. Coda

- in San Diego, CA |

I arrived early, was seen early and was out the door within a reasonable time-frame. Both the nurse and the Doctor were friendly and professional. Dr. Coda was very knowledgeable and made some great recommendations. Overall I had a great experience from start to finish!

Review of Dr. Coda

-San Diego, CA |

I saw this doctor for a scalp dermatitis and he was rude, sarcastic, and overbearing. He does not seem to be interested in listening to the patient and likes to hear himself talk. His staff is cowed and makes no eye contact, and the wait time was over 30 minutes. I will not be going back to this dermatologist again - he is a jerk.

Review of Dr. Saekow

- in San Diego, CA |

I always feel rushed by Dr. Saekow, like he has one foot out the door during the entire appointment. He generally spends less than 5 min with me, even if I'm having some liquid nitrogen treatments. When a full-body scan takes him less than 2 minutes, one has to wonder just how thorough it really is. During my most recent appointment, he was running late, and I discovered that they book his appointments at 10 min intervals, which makes me feel like it's just about collecting lots of $.

Had a good experience with Dr Jacob. He took the time to explain to me the many questions I had about the mark on my back. Surgery went smooth and well.
