What a horrible experience. I didn’t see Dr. Kroodsma, so this review is not directed specifically at him, but at staff in general. While I didn’t see Dr. Kroodsma, I did see another new doctor in practice who is not even listed on the website. Dr. spent less than 3 minutes with me and charged $187. Staff at the front desk were downright rude. An elderly lady came back because she had left her glasses behind, and staff member was very dismissive of her as she was of me. Would not recommend.

Wow, this doctor has a nice personality. He was straightforward in telling us what treatments he believes work and what ones don't work. He did not prescribe treatments that keep us coming back as other dermatologists have done. He was also open to our input. Not condescending at all.

I often put off keeping active with a dermatologist to monitor skin changes because I feel like I don't have time to leave work and make the appointment happen. But there was very little wait time, I got right in, and was able to get back to work in a very timely manner. Dr. Kroodsma is thorough and informative. He provides good education and makes sure that all your skin needs are addressed at the appointment. Very happy I made and kept the appointment.

My first visit to Dr. Kroodsma's practice was a positive experience. He is professional and comforting for those need of Dermatology services. I positively will return to this practice for all of my future needs. I was not able to get in as quickly as I had hoped, but I did not have any type of emergency (is there such a thing in Dermatology?). I had a 3 week wait for my appointment (due to his popularity?). He is very personable and found a couple issues immediately in my sun-damaged skin.

I have seen this doctor for several different problems for the last 8 years. He has excellent diagnosis skills. I have sought second opinions and some were correct and others were wrong. Dr. Kroodsma has always been correct.

Our experience with Dr Kroodsma was unparalleled to our previous one with Dr Frey. He listened to our problems, explained the condition thoroughly to me and my daughter and recommended a very reasonable course of treatment. it is evident he has a true passion for his practice.
