Very professional and thorough in my care. I’ve suffered from severe psoriasis for 20 years. He is the first doctor to take my input into consideration. Dread the day he retires.

My wife came home in tears today after a horrible experience with Dr. Theirs. He was rude and unprofessional, late, extremely disorganized, and blew her off when she tried to ask questions about the results of her tests.

I've had about a dozen skin cancers removed including two squamous cell carcinomas. He gave me a 2-minute full body check. Looked carefully at my face and back and checked my arms. Asked me (!) if I had anything on my stomach/chest he should look at. Never went through my scalp where I've had two cancers excised. Looked at my feet but never looked under the sheet that covered my thighs. Never had me roll over to check from the waist down. Nor did he check fingers and toes. Terrible, exam.
