Today I had my 2nd annual dermatology checkup w/ Dr. Caroline Yeager at Shady Grove Dermatology in Rockville. When I met Dr. Yeager in 2016, I was immediately impressed with her knowledge and lovely demeanor. I had a very positive experience last year and decided to go back this year for another check up. Today's appt. absolutely confirmed that Dr. Yeager is stuck with me for life. :) She is charming, patient, kind & makes you feel like she has all the time in the world. She assisted me greatly
