Compared to other dermatologists Dr. Pointon basically sucked. I never felt like I was getting the attention I needed while on the most extreme medication, accutane. I had dermatitis & she misdiagnosed it saying it was only a dry spot and she can't give me a steroid for it (it got worse). My next dermatologist was confused by this & immediately gave me medication for it. I always felt like there were loose ends & my questions were never fully answered, always in a rush. Definitely not the best.

I had been to several dermatologist before being recommended by a friend to Dr. Catherine Pointon approximately 6 years ago. She has a very caring and professional bedside manner. Makes you feel very comfortable and is very thorough during your appointments/visits with her. I am blessed to have found the right Dermatologist for my condition. Highly recommend her!

Been going to Catherine Pointon for years. Always good service and feel confident in her knowledge. Very friendly staff to help great doctor!
Dr. Pointon did a good job while I visited but the follow through has been the worse I have ever experienced. They took a week to send prescription. When they finally sent it, the pharmacy doesn't mail it to my state. Great job on thoroughness. Jennifer was responsible for this. I called told her first thing in the morning and she said she would call me back. She never called back. It has now been 16 days since my visit and still no medicine for my condition. Jennifer needs a new line of work.

Excellent physician. Very thorough. I trust and like her very much.

Selfish with customer's money, did not know about accutane causing IBS and never cared about patient developing IBS (because of it - nor she bothered helping customers).
