Felt like he talked down to me and had no desire to hear what I was saying. At the time, I was 67 years old and know this body pretty well - I'm not picky or fussy and don't usually leave reviews. Went to see Todd Hillman after that - what a difference all the way around!

The wait time is usually long, but when you finally get to see Dr Goltz, he is taking personal calls with his wife or son, or replying to chain emails on his cell phone.... To then be told okay the numbers look good, with no explanation. Would not recommend.

Dr. Abell is worth the wait!! She performs the best and most thorough skin exams. Most of the other dermatologists barely look at my skin. She found my melanoma skin cancer when two other doctors told me "it was nothing." I send all of my friends and family to see her and her PA Amy!
