Patient Comments (2)

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!

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...more
