Horrible experience beware!!!!!! I went to have a skin cancer screening . Dr. looked at my moles/sun spots & said I needed about 20 removed. Where she cuts them out & the sews the hole up. Then I would have to come at least 3/4 visits for the cutting of them & then 3/4 for the stich removal & she only does surgery on Fridays. My gut instinct was to get a 2nd opinion. After dr examined me she said all is good then I told her about my last visit & couldn’t believe she wanted to remove 20 DONT GO!

Dr. Michael is a compassionate and talented dermatologist! She takes the time to listen to you and react to your concerns. She and her team work well together when performing procedures. Will definitely return again as needed.

Waited 6 weeks for an appointment. Waited over an hour the day of my appointment. Dr. Michael looked at the lesion and ordered a biopsy. The earliest appt available (biopsys were only offered on Fridays) was in 2 months! I went back to my Dr. and asked for another referral. The new Dr. saw me in 2 weeks, did the biopsy immediately and had the results in a week. The cancer was diagnosed, biopsied and removed a month earlier that Dr. Michael would even biopsy. Run don't walk to a more competent Dr

I was referred by someone who raved about Dr. Michael. I was eager to see her, but the earliest appointment was nearly two months later. When the day finally came, I sat in the waiting room 45 minutes. She has an effervescent personality and apologized for my wait, but seemed oblivious that it was disrespectful of my time. My earliest second appointment was again nearly two months later. I waited nearly 90 minutes to see her. If we weren't in the diagnostic process, I would not return.

She helped my situation, but twice I got called the day before an appointment and they canceled. I had to change my schedule weeks in advance to do this appointment. Looking for someone new now, not going for strike three.

Dr. Michael relieved my extreme itchiness in 1 visit! I was going to another dermatologist since November of 2015, and all I got was scripts for different ointments and it was getting worse and worse. ONE visit with Dr Michael and the relief was unbelievable. She is the God of doctors in my book and if anyone is looking for a dermatologist, forget the rest and go to the best. She takes plenty of time with you and the most concerned doctor I have ever met. She truly cares about you. I LOVE HER
